During their conversation, the quote “don't expect yourself in other people” that Mark mentioned really stuck out and resonated with Lisa. So in today's episode, Lisa is getting vulnerable as she shares real-life examples of how she practices the coaching tools and techniques she teaches. She discusses the process of acceptance and recognition of other people's differences and how you can honor that while avoiding tension. She shares examples from her real-life application of these coaching tools and techniques in instances with her family.

The day that began the week that would change history. A day filled with excitement and parades! The wonder of this story can get lost in the repetition of its tradition - but hold on. Hold on to the wonder of the choices Jesus made, hold on the the Lordship of the One who would give his life. The Jews only became disappointed when Jesus didn't meet their expectations - so they killed him. How do you react when He doesn't meet yours?Scripture from The New Living TranslationMusic from musicbed by A. Taylor

My beloved Government finally responded to my Life Application, is this the end of your favorite podcaster? (Bonus Show) Season 4, Episode 7, micro episode Dear Mr Campbell we reviewed your application to remain a sentient human. We review many life applications so our channel was backlogged. Thank you for your patience. I see you filled out the 30 point questionnaire along with the 5000 word essay double spaced with your address in the top left. You even took the time to answer the bonus questions and elaborated on your privilege to live. How commendable. I'm glad you said it's a privilege and not a right the state should keep you alive. Most applicants complicate the matter by demanding we do them a favour. These are the narcissist, the arrogant, the mouth breathers of the planet. The government's responsibility is to safeguards the longevity of its citizens. We live in the age of rations, of measurements and efficiencies. Allowing every earthling to consume valuable resources will be detrimental to the planet that's why we fashioned the Life Application. Our records reveal you watch 5 hours of Netflix, 3 hours of stupid cat videos, and 7 hours of perpetual garbage. You possess mediocre social skills with zero return on your investment since you invested small change on relationships. You had time to change and develop a spiritual consciousness rather than feeding on the nonsense of the underdeveloped and spending your days subservient to the hand of chaos. I guess we all make our choices. I see on your application you posted your degrees as if education equals being a good human. Applicants often brag about their credentials and all of their stock investments. Your ability to generate money and live comfortably is not what we're looking for. You're mistaking us for your previous government whose only concern was to turn a profit. For the aforementioned reasons we have to terminate your life application. Please don't take it personal. Mr Campbell, do you notice the red dot on your chest, yes that red dot on your chest. We're going to pull the trigger now, best regards: the Canadian government.

A look at the Psalm that starts out one of the most beautiful book of books in the Bible. The author speaks of meditating on God's Word and flourishing like a tree planted by water. What does this mean for you?Scripture taken from the NLT and TPT versions of the BibleMusicbed music: Steven Gutheinz
In a world that values strength, Jesus shows humility and weakness by coming as a baby. Strong vs. Weak.

The idea that a group of wealthy men would travel over year to Judea and then a year or more to return home is a mystery in itself, yet there is so much more for us in this part of the Christmas story. There is much we can know about this story, but the meaning behind it brings us so much more.Join me for a few moments to ponder the Magi at Christmas.Scripture quoted from The Passion TranslationMusic: musicbed - Steven Gutheinz
Mary's willingness to accept God's plan is another mystery of Christmas. She lived into the position God had given her instead of trying to perform her way through. It can be so hard to let go of achievement when it comes to faith, we live in a world that says we have to earn it. But, what if you could learn to live from a position of faith instead of performing as Mary did?Join me as we ponder Luke 1:26-38.Scripture take from the The Passion TranslationMusic by Steven Gutheinz through musicbed
It can be hard to wrap our minds around the Creator of the Universe choosing to become Immanuel. Coming from above to live below among those He had created is another mystery of Christmas.

Join me as we ponder another mystery of Christmas.Scripture take from the New Living TranslationMusic by Steven Gutheinz through musicbed

One of the harder things to wrap our heads around is how loved we are by God and that we are his children. It is a lavish, abundant love that affects how we see ourselves, others, and how we love. Join me as we look at these words from 1 John and take a moment to ponder.
