Learn grounding skills for anxiety attacks in my free course: https://courses.therapyinanutshell.com/grounding-skills-for-anxiety-stress-and-ptsd An anxiety attack, in my definition, is when you're overwhelmed with stress, fear or anxiety, you may feel panicky or your anxiety is so strong and the physical symptoms are so intense that you can't function very well. This video is going to teach you the psychology behind calming anxiety attacks and give you a ton of tools to try so that you can create your custom plan to stop anxiety attacks. If you're right in the middle of an anxiety attack and just want to be walked through one simple version of the process check out my other video- A guided walkthrough to calm anxiety attacks. This video is more educational in nature, you'll learn a bunch of options that you can learn and apply to anxiety attacks later. Panic attacks and anxiety attacks have a lot of overlapping symptoms, and people use these terms interchangeably, but there are essentially two different pathways to treating them (rolling with them, or calming down your body). I teach option #1 in my video series on how to stop a panic attack. In today's video I'm going to teach you a ton of options for pathway #2- the calm down approach to anxiety attacks. My goal is to teach you a bunch of tools, then you can try them and find the one that works for you in the long run. If you have chronic panic attacks and trying to control your breathing or calm down makes you feel worse, then definitely watch my other videos on how to stop panic attacks. https://youtu.be/wR8oKZ5qTfk 1. Understand what feeds anxiety attacks. This short term emotion of anxiety is not the problem. Don't be afraid of anxiety, and don't struggle to make anxiety go away immediately. This actually makes things worse. 2. Slow down instead of speed up 3. Anxiety isn't just in your head, it's in your body, so when you're super upset, the body is the gateway to resolving anxiety. 4. Remind yourself that you are safe 5. The real problem here is not that you have emotions, or that you have an anxiety attack, the real problem is that you don't have a system to resolve anxiety, so it's building up and boiling over. The real problem is that you haven't developed a sustainable way to manage stress in your life Looking for affordable online counseling?

Using Mental Time Travel in Meditation from Psalm 73:23-26

If your podcast app is set to skip the silent sections, disable that in your podcast app for this podcast. A good biblical image of what you're trying to do in meditation… Psalm 16:8-9 NIV Your entire body resting secure in the love and care of your Father in heaven. It's important to use meditation to try to feel your whole body, bringing your mind and body back into a oneness where you embrace your whole entire body as part of your soul. Your body is an important part of who you are eternally. That's why you will have a bodily resurrection in your salvation. Not a new body, but a transformed body without decay or sin or mortality. When we embrace our bodies as part of who we are, we are able to live as God intends. And we're able to present our entire selves, including the members of our bodies, to God's Spirit.  So an effective way of feeling your body is to focus on breathing and relaxing the entirety of your body and at the same time focus on feeling your body relax. This is re-integrating your mind with your body in meditation. So take some time now to bring your mind's awareness on relaxing your whole body with each breath. And feeling your body relax.  A big reason we focus on getting good at learning how to feel your body from within is because that's how you can feel biblical images into your body. When I ask God to fill me with his Spirit, I focus on feeling my whole body and imagining his Spirit filling every cell in my body as his holy temple. That my whole body would be filled with God's Spirit. This is a much more biblical way to think of it than just limiting God's Spirit to your spirit. You are an embodied temple of God's Spirit. So think of your body this way, and use your imagination to feel this biblical image into your body. Try that now… Psalm 73:23–26 ESV “Mental time travel”— “Engage in mental time travel. …Think about how you'll feel a month, a year, or even longer from now. Remind yourself that you'll look back on whatever is upsetting you in the future and it'll seem much less upsetting.” He's talking about the importance of seeing your life and circumstances now as you would look upon them a month or year or five years from now. But we can do that even better! See yourself now as you will be in your resurrection. That's who you really are! You're NOT all the other things that tend to make you anxious and stressed.  You will see ALL of your anxieties and tensions now very differently when you are “received into glory” in your body's resurrection when Jesus returns to restore all things in this world. This is what this psalmist is doing. And now Imagine this — there will be a time in the future when your body will be transformed completely by resurrection into a body of glory, beauty, power, spiritual vitality and experience, with a perfect immune system that will never get sick, and some kind of perfect healing system that will never die, and a perfect logic in God's universe that will never tempt you to sin. This is what the Bible calls being “glorified.”  And now look at everything else on earth and see it in light of Jesus restoring all things on earth, including you and all those in him through resurrection. And he will wipe away every tear and you will visibly see him and all evil will melt away. And you will eat from the tree of life and drink from the spring of living water and everything that means forever. See everything now in light of then.  Who can you share this podcast with?

The Recruitment Hackers Podcast
Could sugarcoated job descriptions be impacting your recruitment efforts?

Max: Hello, everyone. Welcome back to the Recruitment Hackers Podcast. I'm your host, Max Armbruster. And today on the show, James Ellis from Employer Brand Labs.Ellis: He got it. He got it.Max: Yes. James is an expert in helping employer brands stand out from the crowd. And today we decided we'd have a conversation for you, our audience on this topic on employer branding and specifically how you can gently indicate to some people that this is not the right place for them. And how many employers sometimes fall into this trap of trying to welcome everybody? And so they end up standing out for nobody and James, thanks for joining. And how did you end up in this very specific field of employer branding? Did you come in through marketing or from recruiting?Ellis: I did Max. And first off, thanks for letting me join this. I'm looking forward to this conversation. But yes, most people in Employer Brand come from two routes. They come from either the recruiting side where they realize that they have a different kind of point of view from most recruiters, some successful recruiters. And that means they don't really succeed as greatly as recruiters and they find that there's a space called Employer Brand where their skills do make sense. The rest of us come from marketing where we realize that marketing has been done and it's a machine.You go to school; you learn your four or five Ps. You apply them every day. It's all the fun stuff in the tactics or in the insight and that's great. And try not going to downplay marketers because I think they're amazing and they do amazing work, but this is the tiniest slice of marketing in which marketing isn't about more. It's the only kind of marketing and branding in which more is actually worse, right? If you're selling an ice cream cone and you sell a million ice cream cones, your employer of the month, they're going to put your name on a face, on a poster. It's going to be great.You're a recruiter and you get a thousand applicants. You should think about another line of work. You have made a poor choice; you've done something wrong. And so that to me is the fine crux of what employer brand is and why it's interesting and fascinating and still has so much to uncover, to really understand what it's all about. Right now, even like seasoned, respected Employer Brand professionals argue all the time over just basic ideas because we still haven't figured it all out. And that's what makes me so excited about the field. Even though it's only a couple of thousands of us. Max: Well I guess jumping on the question, the number that you just mentioned that employer branding would be, you have to right-size it and if you have a thousand applicants per position, you've wasted some resources.Ellis: Yeah.Max: Perhaps, I could challenge that a little bit by saying that well, if you haven't paid too much for the thousand candidates, then that's all right.Ellis: Well here's the deal. The problem is often that there is a gap between hiring managers and recruiters. The hiring manager says I need a, whatever it is. It's a nurse, it's an electrician, it's a data scientist. It's a litter of people, whatever that thing is and they think that's enough information as if all nurses and data scientists and electricians are the same and they are absolutely not. Anybody who's met three nurses goes, oh wow, they are all different. And they have very different skill sets, but they also have very different approaches to how they do that work.The hiring manager doesn't want to get into that. So they just throw the requisition over to the recruiter who says, okay, so who are you looking for? They want someone great. And then they walk away to do their day job because they're busy, right? They've got stuff to do. And the recruiter says, I don't know what the hiring manager wants. So I'm going to write a job ad, add a job description, and a job posting and those things are all slightly different. And we don't have to get into that today, but they write it to be so generic and that opens the door so wide. Is that anybody who can pretty much spell their last name is encouraged to apply? It just gets crazy.You've opened the doors and the metaphor of course is always, you're trying to find a needle in a haystack. And you're trying to say, well look, if I get a thousand or a hundred people to apply, I'll find that needle. But now we're in a world where we need more needles and the answer to creating more needles isn't to make bigger haystacks. It's not how needles work. That's not how needles are created. That's not how needles are found. The goal of good recruiting is when you have enough information, and that means about what the team's all about, what the company rewards, what they want to be motivated for and rewarded by, and what the tasks are, what the future of that job might be. The ultimate situation, the platonic ideal of recruiting is you really only get two candidates to apply. The person you hire, who is amazing, and the person you don't hire who is almost equally as amazing and you put them in your back pocket because you know, one day you're going to want them. And you only have that second person. So the hiring manager feels like they made a choice, right? That's all it is. Everything after that is time the recruiter now has to spend burning up, filtering through resumes and filtering through CVs saying, nope, nope, nope, nope. Or worse yet, it's time the interview loop has to spend on the sixth candidate to say, yeah, no, not quite because they haven't communicated what they're actually looking for.Max: Yeah, well, James, I mean, there are tools available to--Ellis: There are.Max: -- do a lot of selection, but I guess you're right in the sense that the hiring manager ideally would in a dream situation, would just have two or three to choose from. Ellis: Yeah. Max: I think it's also the recruiter's job to expand a little bit and we're in contradictions here. You're saying, narrow it down, get it down to this one. Now, two perfect profiles, but I would say, maybe the recruiter can expand a little bit on the definition and say--Ellis: Yeah.Max: -- well, you're looking for a nurse, to take your healthcare example with all the professional credentials, certification, that lives 20 minutes away from the hospital, et cetera, et cetera. This perfect candidate when probably doesn't exist.Ellis: Probably not.Max: And so then oftentimes they have to stretch and therefore, I guess play the numbers game. Now let's go a little bit broader.Ellis: Yeah. And I think my position is very extreme simply because I think the pendulum swung too far on we've made it so easy for anybody to apply. Like I could use my elbow and just hit an apply button and click, connect to LinkedIn. Yes, I accept. Okay, I've applied for this job. You don't want to hire me. I don't do that job, but you've made it so easy that I might as well. And so I want to swing the pendulum back to say, look, it's not about making things easy. It's really about how do you speak to this job. How do you speak to this opportunity in such a way that the person who isn't just going to be okay at this or even good at this, but the person who is that magical unicorn, we all know purple squirrels will have you? Doesn't just say yes, I'll apply, but says, wow.That sounds like the exact job I was looking to do next. That's where I need to take my career. And it's because we've put enough information in the job, the brand, the company that we're not hiding behind platitudes and cookie cutter and fortune cookie kind of BS junk and the verbiage on most career websites which is garbage because it says the same thing. You might as well copy and paste from every other career site. And that means the candidate can't choose. And I think there's this interesting kind of spin where if you look at modern hiring, it's a Kabuki theater.The candidate has decided I'm going to put all my info and quotes, all my information in two or three pages. But it's never the negative stuff. It's never, I got fired. It's never, I got accused of something. Yeah, I showed up late 14 times in a row when they were forced to ask me to leave. It's never anything like that. If I look at your resume or my resume or your CV or your CV, it sounds like you're mother Teresa, you're amazing. You've never done anything wrong. It's perfect. It's polished. And on the other side, you have this job posting or job ad, which says nothing. It says, yes, must be an excellent written or a communicator.So I got to write novels or do I got to write haiku? What are you saying? You're just saying garbage because you think you have to, so you don't push anybody away, God forbid. And consequently, there's this huge gap. Both sides are lying in different ways, trying to suss the other out and come to find a match. What I think of as employer branding is a function of every hire should be a perfect match between the company, which is what's their culture? What do they have to offer? What do they reward? The role?  So the team, the manager, the mission of that job, the job itself, and the person. And if those three things match, you have an amazing opportunity not just to hire, but to hire someone who's incredibly successful long term. If one of those things is an out of line, it's not going to be a great hire.Max: I think anybody would agree with your wish and is like the purple squirrel perfect match, but the way to get there, the risk of sounding a bit cynical is—Ellis: No, no, go.Max: -- to play the game--Ellis: Yeah.Max: -- the rules of the game that we're all in. Ellis: Yeah.Max: And if indeed, we live in a world where 70% of candidates are going to come from Indeed and everybody has the quick apply button with the elbow.Ellis: Yep.Max: Well, are you going to just gonna count yourself out and just move out of Indeed and then just do hyper-targeted marketing using social media or will you perhaps do a second layer of selection post apply so that, the application and the job description and the ad is as inclusive as possible, kind of like cast a wide net and then do all the selection automatically afterward?Ellis: Yeah, that's a setup and I love that setup. It's fantastic because no one's going to out cynical me. You can try it, but I am the most bitter black-hearted human being you've ever met. It's the coffee. It's amazing. I think there's something there's an option. I'm not saying throw away job boards. In my last job I got as a cold applicant, I got the absolute wrong way. I'm a pretty experienced and skilled professional. I should be in that hey, he's in my network. Let's talk to him. I am that candidate, but my last job was a cold LinkedIn job post and that I went “sure apply” it was a great role, but that's the rarity. Yes, you should use job boards. Yes, you should use social media.Yes, you should have all the tools at your disposal. But instead of saying, hey, we're hiring an MBA graduate, come join our wonderful company. We're a great place to work. We have great rewards and we'll have lots of opportunities, which by the way, is a pretty standard, slim-down job posting, right? What if instead, you say, what we're really looking for is an MBA grad who maybe was at the top or near the top of their class, but more importantly, they were the shark who stabbed everyone in the back to get what they needed to get? We want the person who is so cutthroat, they would sell their grandmother down the river for 14 cents. That is the MBA grad we want. And in return, we will offer you this track towards growth. Yes, it's rewards. Yes, it's benefits. But what we're really looking at is we're looking forward to growing a team of sharks and cutthroat and ninjas and assassins who are going to do this, this, this, this.Max: This is to work on the death star, right?Ellis: Yeah, exactly, exactly. Or write it the other way. Hey, we're looking for an MBA grad, but we're not looking for necessarily the person who stabbed me in the back. We're looking for the person who others looked up to, who was a leader without any authority or any power. It doesn't matter where you graduated from the class. It doesn't matter if you nailed that accounting class or not. It's really about, are you someone people look to when there's a challenge? Now, have you ever seen either of those like paragraphs in a job posting? No. Why? But they are writing--Max: No. I mean, sometimes you see some great efforts. Ellis: You see, you do. But when you are that specific about an MBA grad, you can apply that to any role.Max: Yeah.Ellis: Suddenly, you're not going to get a thousand people to apply because effectively what happens is by being honest about the role, you force the candidate to be honest about what they want. So if you say, are you a cutthroat? By applying you're saying I'm a cutthroat bastard. Well, that's great, you know yourself and that's fantastic. And now what do you think the interview process is like? Who is more cutthroat bastardly than I? I mean, what do you do there? What's the process? I don't know. Or you go the other way, you say, look, this isn't about the head of the class. This wasn't about the valedictorian; this wasn't the do anything to win person.This is the person with that really interesting leadership quality. We don't find them everywhere. That person has to say, this sounds like me and because I'm not that cutthroat and I'm not that diligent and I'm not this, I have this particular flavor of myself and they say, I want that. You're going to get less applicants. And the pendulum starts to swing the other way. Sure, post it on Indeed and LinkedIn and every other job board under the sun, it's not about channels. It's about the message you put on that channel so that you're no longer focused on it because we all know those metrics.I posted on Indeed, I got X number of applicants. I got posted on LinkedIn, I got Y number of applicants, which is better. No, where'd the hire come from? That's the most important thing. And let's be fair our metrics don't always make it that easy to find and figure out and have confidence in. But, the more you change your message to be specific and attractive and real and different, the more the person who is, I want that job, who falls in love with that job. And that's a phrase we don't use enough.You want someone who desires that job, not someone who deigns to apply, not someone who is willing to go through the interview process. Someone who goes that sounds perfect. It serves my needs. It sounds like me. It sounds like what I want. Let's have a conversation. That's where you want to bring the recruiting conversation, not to bend in people's arms and twist people's arms and hustling them and selling them. That's not where recruiters want to be, is it?Max: We started out talking about the volume and the numbers that recruiters naturally gravitate to in an understandable feeling towards safety.Ellis: Yeah.Max: Safety in the numbers.Ellis: Yeah.Max: And so your approach, which would significantly reduce the size of candidates?Ellis: Yes.Max: Could we think of ways to balance that out with ways that we could increase the size?Ellis: Absolutely. Max: That you don't end up with a goose egg or with just one candidate?Ellis: Yeah. Like I said, I'm only kind of taking this very polarizing opposite to swing the pendulum back towards the middle, to a better middle. And then that's a place where, the recruiter gets to be the expert in the marketplace of talent, which is where recruiters should want to be. It's where they have their most value. It's what they do their best work. The hiring manager gets to actually say, look it's a nurse, but we want this kind of nurse and someone who sounds like this and feels like this--Max: Cutthroat killer nurse. Ellis: Yeah. That's got to be a thing somewhere. Look, here's the deal. There's only two of those jobs, but those two nurses are like, yes, that's what I want. And that's where you want to be. You don't want to be a choice among many. You want to be the choice for the few.Max: I think that would be very effective in social media if it was shared because like then, let's say you're that MBA student and as soon as you see the ad, you know who this makes you think about.Ellis: Yes.Max: This is perfect.Ellis: Oh, that's Bob. Yeah, Steve and Bob.Max: And actually Steve will love it.Ellis: Yeah, exactly. Yeah, and that's the game of marketing. Is that there's so much about, we say the same things over and over again? We have to remember. Literally, depending on the time of day we roll this, there could be 8 billion people on this planet and that's a number that is so big. It's hard to get our heads around. There's 50 million businesses in this world. So you're talking about a game where you're trying to figure out how you sort these people and where do you put them? And we've made the game about putting all the power in the hands of the hiring manager and letting them pick.And I don't want to be picked, I don't want someone to say, wow, what he has, or if I'm talking to somebody, else's what she has. It's not about that. What she has is exactly what we want and we want to find a match. It's not a game of, I'm going to accuse you of lying on your resume, or I'm going to accuse you, or let's negotiate and squeeze each other to death and then decide at the end of it we're all best friends. It's about saying it doesn't have to be confrontational in that way. It can be, I'm going to open up and be more transparent about what this job is about. Here's another way, let me put this different spin on. It's a rare, rare, rare day that you see a job posting with a section that functionally says, here's why you won't love this job. Everything about this job is great. There's puppy dogs, and daisies. It's lots of great, it's free food, it's all these wonderful things, but there needs to be a part that says, and by the way, this job has a lot of paperwork. No, it's not to say, the funny thing is that if I were to talk about a friend or a car, or I was trying to sell you something, I said, here are the 10 things that are all positive about this friend or this car and I list them. They're great. They're funny. They're wonderful. They're always there for you. Like after I get like number seven, you start wondering what's the catch. What's with this guy? What's wrong with them? And if I never list a negative, I've put the seed of the negative in your head and now your brain says, oh, they're probably racist.Max: You have to go--Ellis: Oh, they're probably horrible, right? There's something. No, it's not even that you look, it's that your brain does all the work and projects stuff. But if I say here's my friend, funny, wonderful, but by the way, chews with her mouth open. Okay, suddenly that negative proves, makes all the positive things more believable.Max: I know I don't want to have lunch with her and that's fine. And--Ellis: There you go.Max: -- just eat meals. No problem.Ellis: There you go. Max: Yeah. I think if you say the reasons why people will not join you, you control the narrative. And if you don't say it--Ellis: YesMax: -- people are going to either subconsciously create those stories like you said-- Ellis: A hundred percent.Max: -- they have to fill those gaps or they'll go look on a glassdoor. And then they'll get it straight from the angriest of the angry crowd. Ellis: But the nice thing about that, if you control the narrative hearing from the angriest of the angry crowd, doesn't dissuade, it proves. So if I say, let's go work at Goldman Sachs, you're going to get paid really well. You have a huge opportunity, it's a great logo on your resume. There's a status call. There's a productivity call. There's an opportunity call. By the way, you're going to work a hundred hours a week. And you go on Glassdoor and they say, you won't believe this place.They make you work a hundred hours a week. It's slave labor. It's insane. Yeah, it's nuts. And you go, well, if that negative is proved by Glassdoor, I guess all the positives must be true too. It's an amazing kind of process where suddenly the negative proves positive. And now, when I choose to apply to Goldman Sachs, I don't go in with my eyes closed about how hard the work is. I know exactly what I'm getting into, but I also know the trade. I know the value proposition. I'm going to give you my twenties and thirties, and you're going to make me a millionaire.Max: And at Goldman Sachs, everybody knows about it, but--Ellis: Exactly.Max: If you're a company with a hundred to 10,000 employees, most people have never heard about you. You have to get out there and let them know. So--Ellis: And you have to control that narrative. Like you said.Max: You think that when you're dealing with experienced professionals, people have a little bit more self-knowledge and they know what they want, but then if you go a little bit younger--Ellis: Yeah.Max: -- then you have to be more cautious because they may, I don't know. Ellis: YeahMax: They may be more sensitive.Ellis: I think, and that's a nice way to dance around that and I don't disagree with any of that. So I've got two things I could say. First off, I spent a little time at Universum and they do amazing research in the US because it's where I am. I know it's not where you are. In the US, most of their research is around graduating student cohort, right?Max: Universum does a lot of research in Asia as well.Ellis: Oh, they do it everywhere. It's fantastic work. But I just know that when you look at just the junior-level talent, they all say the same thing. I want to work at Google, SpaceX, and Tesla. Why? Because Elon Musk is on Twitter, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And there's a cohort of people who say he's the best, even though, no thanks. They talk him up and if you have no frame of reference, you think, oh, that must be a great place to work. However, I did some research when I was with TMP now Radancy where we looked at the impact of content on job postings. Now, this was about six years ago, but I think the idea still holds. And that is if you're showing content if you're able to say, here's 10 senior jobs and here's 10 junior jobs, and you look at the people who apply and who looked at those jobs and they did, they look at content.Even in a senior role, if they looked at content, they were far more likely to apply because they understood what the job was. They said, ah, yes, I understand what these companies are about. I understand what they reward. I want to be a part of them. Interestingly, if you push content to junior audiences, instead of saying, well, I'm just fresh out of school. I don't know what I want. I'm just going to hit apply as many times as I can, right? We've all been there. I've been there. I know for sure. And I know my sister who's 25. I know she's going through that too. But if you start to see stories and content about this, this is what the job is like, it suddenly becomes less abstract. You suddenly go, oh, the jobs like that. I don't want to do that and they walk away. So content--Max: I think it also equips you for the interview. It makes you a little bit more prepared. Like--Ellis: Yes, absolutely. Max: Like the counterpoint to your recommendation if we want to be very direct and incisive in our messaging is that no, no, no. What I want to do is make people feel at ease, tell them that everybody here is super nice--Ellis: Yeah.Max: -- rainbows and puppies--Ellis: Yeah.Max: -- so that they can relax. And when they're relaxed, then I'll grill them and then I'll slam them and then I'll screen them. But actually, if you do deliver sharp content at the front, I guess, a person comes into the interview, they can be prepared. They know what's coming a little bit.Ellis: Yeah. And I think it's an interesting kind of, I personally believe that the candid experience and the work experience should be mirrored. They should be very much similar. You shouldn't have, no one goes to apply for the army by taking a written test. What you do is you go out, you run for four miles with 60-pound packing because that's the actual job, is to run and try not to get shot at and jump over things and right. That's the job. That's the interview, but it's also the job.Max: That sounds like a pretty cool job description. I've never wanted to join the army until this very moment.Ellis: Yeah, there you go. There you go. I mean that they literally do that. If you're trying to join the Rangers, they call it hell week. They run with packs and they shoot over your head and they go, if you can't handle this, this is not the job for you. So--Max: [Inaudible] gun.Ellis: Yeah. let's hope so. But at the same time, if you're applying for an accounting job and it's a grueling kind of job, but you make the candidate experience happy fuzzy bunny, they're going to say, great. I love this job. And they're going to walk in and say, whoa, this isn't the job I thought I was getting into. And they're gone three weeks later because they're valuable. So there needs to be some mirror. So to me, Employer Brand isn't the thing that attracts them. Employer Brand is a strategy all through the entire candidate journey. Frankly, all the way from the top to the bottom to say, this is why people work here. This is what we reward, proving it through the candidate's journey, supporting it in the job and when knowing that, by telling them all those things, when they tell their friends or people at a bar, what it's like to work there, they're telling similar stories to bring them back to the top of the funnel. Employer Brand is not just attraction, it's the whole thing. Now I might focus on attraction because that's what gets me the most bang for my buck early on. But I know, here's a good example. If I say, hey, I'm going to put this message out. We want just cutthroats I'm going back to this because it's funny. We just want these cutthroat nurses, these two cutthroat nurses and we're not drunk. Ladies and gentlemen, listening to this, we are very, very stone sober I promise you.So you get these cutthroat nurses and the cutthroat nurse goes, oh, that sounds like a cool job and they apply. You don't ignore the cutthroatness of the job. And in fact, when you get-- you touch on it, the recruiter should be touching on it through the journey. And then when they get to the offer stage, the offer stage should literally start with, you applied because you saw this cutthroat job and it sounded like something you wanted to do. All you have to do is touch on it. All you have to do is just tap it to remind them. This is what got you excited in the first place. Just doing stuff like that increases your offer acceptance rate. Because you're reminding them why, you're not saying, hey, let's switch the conversation is nothing but salary and benefits and negotiation, which is sadly where most offer conversations go. If you say, look, here's an offer, it's fair. But I want to remind you what you get is the subjective value you wanted. You said you want at the beginning, reminding them, squeeze and re-anchor it at the offer level, they're more likely to say yes. So Employer Brand impacts even things like offer acceptance. Max: Yeah that's a solid takeaway here. Remind them at the offer stage why this offer is unique?Ellis: Yeah.Max: Also I love the tip about telling them a list of reasons why you will not like this job. One of my favorite interview questions is you're not working here six months from now. Well, tell me what happened.Ellis: Yeah. Oh, wow, that's a good one.Max: I got, that one from a friend at Google and the answer usually help you yeah understand what candidates considered to be the main risk factors, which is a little bit more self-centered rather than company centered usually. But still very insightful.Ellis: Yeah.Max: Great. Well, James' final question. And because we're up on time.Ellis: You make it sound like there's a trap door, right under me. Like the final question, sir. Are you ready for this?Max: Well this one is a bit tricky. It's walking back to a dark place, which is a mistake that you have made in recruitment because anyone who's done recruitment has made a recruitment mistake at some point. Ellis: Yes. Max: And if you could illustrate that. Think back to someone that you hired and you made a mistake and then what can the audience learn from that?Ellis: Way back when I was a hiring manager, I had a team of -- well, Max there were 19 people helping us build social media and content for clients and whatnot. And so we were hiring our a regular basis. We were hiring very junior people and we didn't-- it wasn't the top-of-the-scale pay. So we were hiring people who were 21, 22, 23, fresh out of school, maybe one job before that. And my mistake I made and it's a rookie mistake, but I think everybody has to learn the hard way, is to just listen to me. And so I found someone, I thought they were great. I kind of said, yep. I think we should hire them. Did it. Hired them. And three months later, they hated their job.You know, making people around them miserable and they eventually left. Thank goodness. And the little lesson I learned was that look, I have to have other people's weigh in and kind of balance me out. Like I get into folks, like many people. I kind of get fixated and say, oh, this is the right person. And then the blinders come up and I say, this is what I want. I needed to kind of build my own little, you might call it an interview loop, but I really thought of it more as a board, a personal board to say, look, you know me and you know what I'm looking for because you do the job.But I also know, you know my blind spots. So check my blind spots and I've had almost screaming fights with people who said, James, you don't understand, do not hire this person. And I'm like, I love them. I think they're amazing. And then I had to listen to them and I did. I think I was all the better for it, but that's the lesson I learned is that you do need to kind of understand your own blind spots and you have to build systems that balance against them otherwise you're just going to keep making the same mistakes over and over.Max: That's very hard to do because if you don't hire someone, then you don't really know, let's say you fall in love with a candidate.Ellis: Yeah.Max: And then somebody tells you not to, and then you don't hire them. You follow their advice, but you never know what could have been, you could live in regret.Ellis: The FOMO. Max: Yeah, the FOMO is strong and real.Ellis: It's real. It's real. Max: Yeah. It's a real problem.Ellis: Yeah. Max: Well, I don't think we'll solve that one today, but--Ellis: No, no.Max: For everything else t thanks a lot, James. Where can people get a hold of you and read your content perhaps?Ellis: Sure. I do a free newsletter. It's called Employer Brand headlines. If you go to employerbrandheadlines.substack.com, or if you go to employerbrandlab.com, it's right there. It's free and I think right now it's the biggest newsletter in employer branding. I don't know. I don't have metrics for that stuff, but let's say it is. Let's pretend it is. Why not? What the heck, it's a podcast. Just say anything.Max: This is branding. If you say it is. And so--Ellis: Yeah, exactly. If Joe Rogan can say whatever he wants to say on his podcast, why can't we say whatever you want? What's up with that? Anyway, employerbrandlab.com. Max: To subscribe, spell it out again for the substack.Ellis: Sure. It's employer brandheadlines.substack.com. It's free. It's really designed to help you get kind of sharp at employer branding and how to think about it. It's not tactics, it's not tricks and hacks. It's really about look, employer branding is a way of looking at the world. Here's a way to kind of help shift your perspective.Max: Great. Well, I'm going to go online right now and subscribe to it. Thanks a lot, James. Thanks for having you.Ellis: No, it's been a blast. Thanks for having me on.Max: And that was James Ellis from Employer Brand Labs. Hope you enjoyed the discussion we had particularly around volume, James arguing for less is more to get the perfect candidate in and I always arguing for more volume and then let the machines do the sorting for you. Both approaches of course are not incompatible. And James and I had a great little discussion afterward discussing how people, employers could expand the front of the funnel and then use their branding too as well, make sure that every candidate is a good culture fit with your company. So I think both are very compatible in fact, and that we live in a world where we can get very targeted candidates, but still insufficient volume. Hope you enjoyed it and that you'll subscribe for more and share with your friends.

If your podcast app is set to skip the silent sections, disable that in your podcast app for this podcast. A good biblical image of what you're trying to do in meditation… Psalm 16:8-9 NIV Your entire body resting secure in the love and care of your Father in heaven. It's important to use meditation to try to feel your whole body, bringing your mind and body back into a oneness where you embrace your whole entire body as part of your soul. Your body is an important part of who you are eternally. That's why you will have a bodily resurrection in your salvation. Not a new body, but a transformed body without decay or sin or mortality. When we embrace our bodies as part of who we are, we are able to live as God intends. And we're able to present our entire selves, including the members of our bodies, to God's Spirit.  So an effective way of feeling your body is to focus on breathing and relaxing the entirety of your body and at the same time focus on feeling your body relax. This is re-integrating your mind with your body in meditation. So take some time now to bring your mind's awareness on relaxing your whole body with each breath. And feeling your body relax.  A big reason we focus on getting good at learning how to feel your body from within is because that's how you can feel biblical images into your body. When I ask God to fill me with his Spirit, I focus on feeling my whole body and imagining his Spirit filling every cell in my body as his holy temple. That my whole body would be filled with God's Spirit. This is a much more biblical way to think of it than just limiting God's Spirit to your spirit. You are an embodied temple of God's Spirit. So think of your body this way, and use your imagination to feel this biblical image into your body. Try that now… Psalm 73:23–26 ESV “Mental time travel”— “Engage in mental time travel. …Think about how you'll feel a month, a year, or even longer from now. Remind yourself that you'll look back on whatever is upsetting you in the future and it'll seem much less upsetting.” He's talking about the importance of seeing your life and circumstances now as you would look upon them a month or year or five years from now. But we can do that even better! See yourself now as you will be in your resurrection. That's who you really are! You're NOT all the other things that tend to make you anxious and stressed.  You will see ALL of your anxieties and tensions now very differently when you are “received into glory” in your body's resurrection when Jesus returns to restore all things in this world. This is what this psalmist is doing. And now Imagine this — there will be a time in the future when your body will be transformed completely by resurrection into a body of glory, beauty, power, spiritual vitality and experience, with a perfect immune system that will never get sick, and some kind of perfect healing system that will never die, and a perfect logic in God's universe that will never tempt you to sin. This is what the Bible calls being “glorified.”  And now look at everything else on earth and see it in light of Jesus restoring all things on earth, including you and all those in him through resurrection. And he will wipe away every tear and you will visibly see him and all evil will melt away. And you will eat from the tree of life and drink from the spring of living water and everything that means forever. See everything now in light of then.  Who can you share this podcast with?

Old Testament: Proverbs 25–26 Proverbs 25–26 (Listen) More Proverbs of Solomon 25 These also are proverbs of Solomon which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied. 2   It is the glory of God to conceal things,    but the glory of kings is to search things out.3   As the heavens for height, and the earth for depth,    so the heart of kings is unsearchable.4   Take away the dross from the silver,    and the smith has material for a vessel;5   take away the wicked from the presence of the king,    and his throne will be established in righteousness.6   Do not put yourself forward in the king's presence    or stand in the place of the great,7   for it is better to be told, “Come up here,”    than to be put lower in the presence of a noble.   What your eyes have seen8     do not hastily bring into court,1  for2 what will you do in the end,    when your neighbor puts you to shame?9   Argue your case with your neighbor himself,    and do not reveal another's secret,10   lest he who hears you bring shame upon you,    and your ill repute have no end. 11   A word fitly spoken    is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.12   Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold    is a wise reprover to a listening ear.13   Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest    is a faithful messenger to those who send him;    he refreshes the soul of his masters.14   Like clouds and wind without rain    is a man who boasts of a gift he does not give. 15   With patience a ruler may be persuaded,    and a soft tongue will break a bone.16   If you have found honey, eat only enough for you,    lest you have your fill of it and vomit it.17   Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor's house,    lest he have his fill of you and hate you.18   A man who bears false witness against his neighbor    is like a war club, or a sword, or a sharp arrow.19   Trusting in a treacherous man in time of trouble    is like a bad tooth or a foot that slips.20   Whoever sings songs to a heavy heart    is like one who takes off a garment on a cold day,    and like vinegar on soda.21   If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat,    and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,22   for you will heap burning coals on his head,    and the LORD will reward you.23   The north wind brings forth rain,    and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.24   It is better to live in a corner of the housetop    than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.25   Like cold water to a thirsty soul,    so is good news from a far country.26   Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain    is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.27   It is not good to eat much honey,    nor is it glorious to seek one's own glory.328   A man without self-control    is like a city broken into and left without walls.26   Like snow in summer or rain in harvest,    so honor is not fitting for a fool.2   Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying,    a curse that is causeless does not alight.3   A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,    and a rod for the back of fools.4   Answer not a fool according to his folly,    lest you be like him yourself.5   Answer a fool according to his folly,    lest he be wise in his own eyes.6   Whoever sends a message by the hand of a fool    cuts off his own feet and drinks violence.7   Like a lame man's legs, which hang useless,    is a proverb in the mouth of fools.8   Like one who binds the stone in the sling    is one who gives honor to a fool.9   Like a thorn that goes up into the hand of a drunkard    is a proverb in the mouth of fools.10   Like an archer who wounds everyone    is one who hires a passing fool or drunkard.411   Like a dog that returns to his vomit    is a fool who repeats his folly.12   Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes?    There is more hope for a fool than for him.13   The sluggard says, “There is a lion in the road!    There is a lion in the streets!”14   As a door turns on its hinges,    so does a sluggard on his bed.15   The sluggard buries his hand in the dish;    it wears him out to bring it back to his mouth.16   The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes    than seven men who can answer sensibly.17   Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own    is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.18   Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death19   is the man who deceives his neighbor    and says, “I am only joking!”20   For lack of wood the fire goes out,    and where there is no whisperer, quarreling ceases.21   As charcoal to hot embers and wood to fire,    so is a quarrelsome man for kindling strife.22   The words of a whisperer are like delicious morsels;    they go down into the inner parts of the body.23   Like the glaze5 covering an earthen vessel    are fervent lips with an evil heart.24   Whoever hates disguises himself with his lips    and harbors deceit in his heart;25   when he speaks graciously, believe him not,    for there are seven abominations in his heart;26   though his hatred be covered with deception,    his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.27   Whoever digs a pit will fall into it,    and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling.28   A lying tongue hates its victims,    and a flattering mouth works ruin.

We are going hot and heavy as we continue the third episode of Jason Rigby's discussions of self-love and self-abandonment through the aid of a feature personality development expert, Dr. Margaret Paul. Jason Rigby breaks down some of Dr. Margaret's famous context and he mixes up in conjunction with Creational Laws.    There are many intricate but connecting lessons from this episode. He then streamlines the entire episode into four takeaways. But as Higher Density Living leaves the lessons to the viewer, you take the responsibility to find the answers within yourselves. Remind yourself that you are in love.     This episode tackles the reasons for love. What is it to be loved by a person and loving a person? The former is most likely an egoic necessity while the latter is a deep understanding of acceptance and embrace. You cannot expect, let alone force someone to love you and then make them the savior of your life. When you learn how to love yourself those relationships around you will change dramatically. They are not objects of desire nor pleasure. You can't make them your own tool to feel good. The key takeaway here is love is not something to pay back once you've given it to someone.   It should be imperative to you, as an entity of Creation capable of giving love, that we should take care of ourselves. Be the best version of you.    As always, Higher Density living reserves no dogma because only the truth prevails in the universe.

Episode summary: Anoosha Syed appreciates her name now, but as a kid, she struggled with feeling different from everyone else. She had friends call her “Annie” and even dyed her hair blonde in an effort to look less Pakistani. Anoosha joins us after trying a practice in forgiveness. Anoosha explores the complexities of forgiving someone who's in a position of power and privilege and should know better, like the teacher who always mispronounced her name. Then, Anoosha took the practice a step further and directed it inward. She shares what it was like to forgive her younger self for not being as proud of her culture as she is today.  Later, we hear from psychologist Dr. Lydia Woodyatt about the power of self-compassion and affirming our important values to release us from destructive self-blame while still holding ourselves accountable when we need to.  Practice: Make sure you know how you feel about what is going on and be able to articulate it. Then, tell someone you can trust about your experience. Tell yourself you will feel better because of this forgiveness. Forgiveness is for you, not for others. Remember, forgiveness does not necessarily mean reconciling with the person who upsets you or condoning the behavior.  Recognize that your primary pain comes from hurt feelings, thoughts, and physical discomfort you are experiencing now, not from the thing that offended or hurt in the past. Practice stress management to soothe yourself when you're feeling overwhelmed. Try things like mindful breathing or going for a walk. Remind yourself that you cannot expect others to act in the way you think they should, but it's ok to hope that they do. Find another way to achieve the positive outcome you had hoped for in the first place. Instead of focusing on your hurt feelings, look for the bright side of things. Focus on what's going well for you.  Change the way you look at your past so you remind yourself of your heroic choice to forgive..

There's a gap in the industry. Few people are doing more to fill that gap than Lydia Burns.  Lydia is known as a senior manager with Allied Construction Industries, a trade group that works on advocacy, networking, and solutions for a variety of parties within the construction industry. Last time we met with Lydia, we discussed her work with K-12 programs that familiarize students with various aspects of construction. Today, we talk about her ambitious work with Shebuilds a division of ACI that focuses on increasing the number of women in the construction industry. Only 9% of the skilled trade workers within the construction industry are female. This under-representation is the result of everything from corporate hiring practices to parents' messages to their children. Lydia and the She Builds team work strategically to increase construction interest among women. Here are a few things they do: Address specific reasons that high school girls give for not pursuing a career in construction, Address academic concerns (particularly math), Recruit and train adult women who are shifting careers, Work with everyone from students to executives in an effort to break down stereotypes.   We ask Lydia how guys in construction make the field more appealing to women. Here are some of her thoughts: Avoid offering them help unless they clearly need it. Shut down your inner diner waitress. In other words, don't call them “honey” or “sweetie.” Talk to women in the industry and ask them for ideas.   Papa Eddie (father of three girls) raises a few concerns. Lydia (second of three daughters) addresses them: Empower your daughter. If you see that she has STEM skills and interest, foster that interest. Remind yourself that there is a diverse range of jobs within the construction industry–and not all of them involve carrying bundles of shingles up a ladder. Seek to increase the possibilities rather than reduce them. Involve them in your construction projects–both around the house and at work.    Lydia's megaphone (her second time): Start having the conversation in your company and your area. Women can do this work.

There are many intricate but connecting lessons from this episode. He then streamlines the entire episode into four takeaways.

“Some people thought that working remotely would end harassment, but it didn't. Harassment just changed.”The pandemic caused a multitude of sudden changes in our daily lives, and the business world wasn't an exception. Remote work was previously an uncommon benefit; suddenly, every company had to offer remote work or stall completely. For offices that were more experienced with remote work, they may have had protocols for preventing issues. But for the vast majority of businesses, this was new territory, and mistakes were bound to happen. Toxic behavior is not limited to in-person interactions. Harassment can and does happen remotely via email, phone, text messages, chat services, and more. Employers need to prepare for digital harassment by having processes in place to handle these situations. In this episode of HR in 15, Ken McCarthy, President of Integrity by McCarthy, Inc., returns to speak with Kelly Tavares, an HRBP at PrestigePEO, about how to prevent digital harassment.Highlights Include: Establish a healthy company culture where people feel comfortable reporting harassment Ask your managers to look out for poor behavior Remind your staff that harassment is not toleratedHave questions?

Don't Throw Away Your Confidence and Reward

Ed Underwood Don't Throw Away Your Confidence and Reward! (Hebrews 10:32-39)   “My righteous one shall live by faith” (Hebrews 10:38). We come to a great transition in the Book of Hebrews as the writer moves from teaching to application. He has masterfully presented Jesus Christ's superior ministry (6:13-10:18). Proving that Jesus is better than every and any alternative and cautioned them against forsaking him and his followers, the writer now offers the most stern warning: Do not sin willingly and persistently because God severely judges his New Covenant people!  The key Greek term parresia, confidence (vv 19, 35; 4:16) brackets the admonition. The message being that though true believers should live with a healthy expectation of judgment for contemptuous lifestyles that dishonor God and insult the Spirit of grace (v 29)—all who truly believe should desire the confidence that faith in Christ brings to our lives. These paragraphs have a greater purpose than simply warning those who are tempted to walk away from Jesus. They're designed to encourage all of us to draw near to God in enduring faith. We've already considered the first paragraph (19-25) that teaches us to draw near to God in community by resourcing our New Covenant blessings in Christ. We then looked at the warning itself: Do not be disloyal to Christ because God sternly disciplines His New Covenant people. Now we close out our study as the author transitions from the consequences of walking away from Jesus to a reminder of the days when they were faithful. He's hoping that these memories of the joy of serving Christ in sacrificial ways will spark repentance. He reveals his shepherds heart in this desperate plea to return to their past faithfulness and the joys they shared in community.      Plea: We've come so far together; don't throw away your confidence and reward.     The final paragraph recalls more faithful times when the joy of serving Jesus surpassed the pain of persecution, and then reminds them of what they're throwing away if they walk away from the Lord.   I. Plea: Remember the joy we shared in serving Jesus in hard times? Don't throw away your confidence and reward! (Hebrews 10:32-39)   A.The shepherd of this community reminds them of former times of faithfulness in spite of the pain as they lived for what really matters to the redeemed (32-34).   1.But remember the former days…after you were enlightened. This is speaking of those days following their belief in Christ when they served the Lord no matter what the cost.   2.You endured suffering, humiliation, and injustice. You risked visiting those who were thrown into prison for their faith (Matthew 25:36) while authorities and mobs were confiscating your belongings.   3.But, you did this gladly because you looked forward to what really matters—the better and eternal possession (I take this as the believer's inheritance in the kingdom!).      B.Now he pleads with them not to throw away their confidence and reward, but rather to have the faith to endure by doing God's will as they look for Jesus' return. In this context God's will means faithfully serving Christ in spite of the cost. (35-39)   1.Those about to walk away should understand what they're throwing away—their confidence (4:16; 1 John 2:28) and reward (Hebrews 1:14; 3:6, 14; 9:15; 10:19; Matthew 6:20; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Romans 14:10).  The eternal inheritance laid up for them was so real in their eyes that they could lightheartedly bid farewell to material possessions which were short-lived in any case. This attitude of mind is precisely that 'faith' of which our author goes on to speak." (F.F. Bruce, The Epistle to the Hebrews, p. 270)   2.The author speaks for himself as one of them who will continue to do God's will with enduring faith as he waits for the soon coming of Jesus. He knows that God's righteous ones (How could he be more clear that this is a warning to believers?) should not shrink away from living by faith. The alternative is to become God's disappointing child.    3.The author is counted among those who do not timidly shrink back from the cost of following Jesus and thus live wasted lives, but he is among those who have the faith that preserves physical life (soul is frequently to mean “physical life,” cf. James 5:20). I believe that the word translated perish (NET Bible), perdition (NKJV), destruction (NASV), is picturing the path that those who draw back decide to walk. The path toward destruction, I believe, in this context is loss of physical life. The Greek word speaks of waste. What a waste of a life when a New Covenant child of God refuses to live for the Lord Jesus.   II. There are five categories of people we will meet in life and the church:   A.In 1 Corinthians 2:14-3:3, Paul describes three spiritual categories of human beings.   1.The natural man, or unbeliever (2:14). This person cannot receive the things the Spirit of God is teaching believers because only the Spirit can discern these messages. They do not have the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9), therefore the only message the Spirit is enabling them to believe is the gospel (1 John 2:2).   2.The one who is spiritual, or maturing Christian (2:15). This person is lead and taught by the Spirit and can scrutinize issues in life. He or she is accessing the mind of Christ as the Spirit teaches them the Scriptures in the context of community.   3.The people of the flesh, or carnal (flesh-dominated) Christian (3:1-4). This person continues to act as a mere babe in Christ, his or her mind dominated by self-centered thoughts that result in divisive behavior.    4.The infant in Christ (3:1-4), who simply needs to grow out of the self-centered and divisive ways of the world.   5.In Matthew 13:24-30 Jesus warns us against an extremely dangerous person we may encounter, the tare. The tare is a person sown into the wheat field of God's people to do harm and disrupt. We can't tell the difference between these stealthy insurgents and true believers until the end of the age. Note: Their behavior will be virtually identical to that of a carnal, or flesh-dominated Christian.    III. Hebrews 10 and You! How should I respond to those who claim Christ while rebelling?   A.Rebuke. Warn them against the loving but severe discipline of the Father.   B.Remind. Recall stories of the joy of service when they first believed.   C.Re-evaluate. If this doesn't resonate, consider the possibility that they are unsaved or a tare.   D.Resolve. To love them well, but do not trust them with your life or your community.

Marks of a Healthy Church Mark One: Expositional Preaching by William Klock We just confessed in the Creed that the Church is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic.  These are historically known as the “marks” of the Church.  Despite our various differences and schisms, the Church is one.  Whether Anglican or Mennonite or Coptic or Baptist, we're all part of the one Church.  It's holy.  Jesus has called us, set us apart, washed us clean, and filled us with the Spirit.  It's catholic.  It is universal and it is complete in and of itself.  And it's apostolic in that it continues in the teaching, in the gospel, that was given to us by the apostles.  These identifying marks of the Church have served us well since the Fourth Century—and it's not like they were new ideas when they were written into the Nicene Creed back then.  But they are fairly abstract—in the sense that these things describe the Church in the broadest sense.  So how do we identify the church at the local level?  When you look at a local congregation, what sorts of things should define it?  Or we could ask what makes a local church a church as opposed to a social club or a group of do-gooders or even a cult?  Or we might ask what makes for a healthy church?  These issues became of paramount importance at the time of the Protestant Reformation.  If the Church is “broken”—as the Reformers observed—what needs to happen to set it right?  For the Reformers, whether German or Swiss, French or English or Scottish, the identify marks of a true local church, of a church faithful to Jesus and the teaching of the apostles, distilled down to two things: the preaching of God's word and the administration of God's sacraments.  This principle was written, in one way or another, into all of the Protestant confessions of faith, but here's how it comes to us in ours, in Article XIX of our Articles of Religion: The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly ministered according to Christ's ordinance, in all those things that of necessity are requisite to the same. Anglican and Lutherans, Baptists and Presbyterians, we have our differences, but we are united in these two core marks of a church: we preach the word and we administer the sacraments.  Faithfulness to these two things—and whether or not we do these things with deliberate faithfulness to Scripture—is what determines the health of a church.  Not attendance and numbers, not programs, not activities, not vibrant fellowship, but faithfulness to preaching God's word and administering his sacraments.  All those other things can be good—and sometimes they come out of faithfulness to word and sacrament, but it's the word and the sacraments that create this community called the church.  We can build community around all sorts of other things—and churches often do.  We build community around programmes.  We build communities around styles of worship, whether a grand pipe organ and a choir or a rock band and fog machine.  We even build community around celebrity preachers.  But those things should not and do not define a church—let alone a healthy church.  Faithfulness to word and sacrament do.  We visited this topic almost thirteen years ago and it's my plan to revisit it again between now and Advent.  My own views have evolved and refined a bit in the last decade, but I think the key principles I preached back then are still basically the same.  So I want to start these first several weeks with that first mark, faithful preaching of the word.  The first four principles derive from our preaching.  From there we'll move onto the principles that are connected to or derived from our administration of the sacraments. So a faithful church, a healthy church is a word-centred church.  Such church should be characterised by people who take God's word seriously and who understand that it speaks with authority.  We should expect such a church's members to be committed to reading and studying the Bible for themselves.  We should expect that they will probably gather in groups to read and study the Bible together.  But at the centre of all of this should be a pulpit ministry devoted to and centred on the Bible.  Virtually every church includes some kind of sermon in its worship, but not every sermon is Bible-centred.  So we need to be very explicit about this.  The first mark of a faithful and healthy church is not just preaching, but what's usually called expositional or expository preaching.  Now, what is expositional preaching?  Expositional preaching is what I do virtually every Sunday.  Expositional preaching takes a text from the Bible—maybe given by the lectionary or maybe as we work through a book of the Bible verse by verse or chapter by chapter—expositional preaching takes that text, explains what it means, and applies it to the congregation—it tells you what to do about it.  In contrast there's topical preaching.  That's what I almost never do—but I am doing it right now.  In a topical sermon, the preacher preaches not about a Biblical text, but about subject—and hopefully what the Bible has to say about that subject, whether it's prayer or justice or holiness or expositional preaching.  There can be some crossover.  A topical sermon can be expositional as it explains what a certain text has to say about a certain topic.  But a steady diet of topic preaching isn't healthy for a church, because it's not driven by the word.  Topical preaching is driven by the preacher.  And if a congregation only ever hear what their preacher wants to preach about, they'll never grow beyond where their preacher is at.  And he won't grow either, because he's always digging into the Bible to find support for his ideas.  In contrast, expositional preaching is driven by the word.  The Bible's agenda becomes the preacher's agenda—and he's therefore always learning and often surprised by what he finds—and the congregation grows by hearing God's word.  Brother and Sisters, my ideas—no preacher's ideas or pet topics—will not transform you into the people God intends you to be.  Only his word will do that. Expositional preaching also requires and builds a commitment to God's word.  Many of us came from the Anglican Church of Canada.  How did a church go so badly awry, how did it stray so far from orthodoxy, and how did so many people just sit and let it happen?  It happened because the church lost her commitment to the word.  Her pulpit ministry failed.  The great expositional sermons preached in Anglicn pulpits from the Reformation through the 19th Century were replaced by ten or fifteen minute homilies—often topical, but typically paying only lip-service to God's word.  And that created a people with no passion for the word and that, in turn, created a people with little knowledge of the word—people ready to be carried about by every wind of doctrine. Brothers and Sisters, God's word creates God's people.  Many of us have seen what happens when you take it away or water it down.  God's people become lax in faith and lax in discipline.  Instead of conforming to the word, they conform to the culture around them.  And eventually they simply stop being God's people altogether—they apostatise.  And it's not just “liberal” churches.  Evangelicals at large are facing their own crisis, because so many of our churches are failing to preach the word.  Our preachers are preaching pop-psychology or they're preaching topically and preaching their own ideas—and even as they affirm the authority or inerrancy of Scripture, their churches are often looking less and less like the people of God and more like the culture around us.  Dear Friends, our churches must, first and foremost, by centred on God's word and that begins with our pulpit ministry.  If we look at the history of the Church we see a lot of ebb and flow, high points and low points, and one thing we see consistently is that the high points in Church history always align with those times and places where her people and especially her preachers were committed to preaching God's word.  People like to say that the great revivals of history were brought about by prayer.  That's only half the story.  Those periods of great prayer were brought about by periods of great biblical preaching.  Again, God's word creates God's people.  It won't happen any other way. Let's go back to the very beginning of the story.  Genesis 1.  What was God's agent of creation?  “God said…”  He spoke and the cosmos and everything in it came into being.  When Adam and Eve sinned, they were cast from his presence, but the word of the Lord remained.  He spoke, cursing the serpent and giving them hope in a promise of restoration.  When all humanity had lost the knowledge of God, he spoke again, this time calling Abraham out of Ur and leading him to the promised land.  And when the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, the word of the Lord came again to Moses, and through him to the whole people—even to Pharaoh.  By his word he brought down a pagan king and created a people for himself.  At Sinai he spoke again, establishing a covenant with his people and giving his life—the means of life in his presence.  God's word creates and gives life. Over and over the Lord spoke to his people.  That phrase “the word of the Lord came” or something similar occurs more than 3,800 times.  By his word he created a people and by his word he sustained them.  By his word he made himself known.  By his word he created faith amongst them.  I was reading an article this week about literacy in ancient Israel.  Hardly anyone in the ancient world knew how to read and write—just a tiny handful of scribes.  But in ancient Israel and Judah the literacy rate may have been as high as fifteen or twenty per cent.[1]  Why?  Because they were a people of the word, particularly as the ancient oral traditions were recorded and became scripture.  They knew that God's word is life. Think of Ezekiel's vivid vision of the valley of dry bones.  This is one of my favourite passages in all of Scripture because it so often gives me hope as a preacher.  The Lord took Ezekiel to a valley full of dead, dry bones.  The Lord asked him how those bones could live again.  Ezekiel had no idea.  It looked hopeless.  Here's Ezekiel 37:4-6: Then [the Lord] said to me, “Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.  Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live.   And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the Lord.”   And look at what happened when Ezekiel began preaching God's Word to those bones: So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I prophesied, there was a sound, and behold, a rattling, and the bones came together, bone to its bone.  And I looked, and behold, there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them. But there was no breath in them.  Then he said to me,  “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”  So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. (Ezekiel 37:7-10) The Lord explains to Ezekiel that the bones are Israel—her hope is gone.  But he will not leave his people dry and hopeless.  He promised in verse 14, “I will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live.”  What's the Lord's means of giving life—of imparting his Spirit—to his people?  As in the beginning, his word, this time spoken through the prophet.  It's an amazing thing.  As a preacher it gives me hope.  Israel was dead.  Lots of people had lots of ideas about how to bring her back to life.  The nation certainly wasn't interested in listening to Ezekiel.  But preaching was the Lord's solution.  If he could speak into the pre-creation chaos and bring life, he can certainly speak to a lost, sinful, rebellious, and hopeless people and bring them back to life—giving them faith anew.  Brothers and Sisters, that's why the Church exists: a people created by the word and called to preach that word to the world.  But I'm getting ahead of myself.  Back to Ezekiel.  The Lord promised to speak to Israel and to give her his Spirit.  Through the prophet he promised, “I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you.  And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh” (Ezekiel 36:26) And the Lord did just that.  Think of the opening verses of John's Gospel: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:1-4)   The word incarnate.  God's creative power, there in the beginning, now incarnate, one of his own people, that he might bring the dry bones to life.  And what did the word incarnate do?  He preached, of course..  His was the ministry of a prophet, the word of the Lord proclaiming the word of the Lord—announcing judgement, but also calling Israel to repentance so that when he died for the sins of his people and rose from the grave, they would understand this fresh and mighty work of God and believe.  And when it was accomplished, what did he do?  He ordained apostles to proclaim this word to Jerusalem, to Judea, to Samaria, and to the whole world.  We cannot know this God, we cannot know this Saviour, we cannot know this gospel apart from the word and without its proclamation.  It was like this for Israel and it is like this for the Church.  There's a reason, again, why Christianity and Christian missions have promoted high literacy rates—why missionaries spend years learning the languages of pre-literate peoples, developing alphabets and grammars for them, so that they can then translate the Bible—the written word—so that those peoples can have it in their own languages.  There are folks today who think that preaching—a monologue by a single man at the front—is passé, but it has been the norm for both Jews and Christians from the beginning, because we are a people committed to the word of God, knowing that it is the only source of true life. We cannot know God apart from his self-revelation of himself.  We see this in Genesis as things go from bad to worse in those first chapters, as fallen humanity loses all knowledge of God.  They grasped for heaven at Babel, but did so in an act of unbelief.  Humanity was utterly lost.  But then, in his grace, the Lord spoke and called Abraham and faith sparked to life in the darkness of the world—because God spoke, because a man heard the word of the Lord, believed, and obeyed.  As St. Paul writes in Romans 10:17, “Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word”—and specifically he adds—“the word of Christ.” There are all sorts of philosophies of church growth today.  People argue for building churches around programmes.  People argue that you've got to find your niche and build it around that.  When I was visiting my parents I saw that someone had started the “Cowboy Church” not far from where they live.  When I was first ordained in the REC a friend gave me a manual for traditional Anglican church planting.  It was all about building contacts with anglophiles by getting involved in clubs and societies centred on all things English.  Other people build churches around a worship experience or a youth programme.  It's not that God can't or won't use some of those things, but Brothers and Sisters, a healthy church will always be built around the proclamation of the word of God, modelled in the pulpit and lived by the people.  Nothing else will last.  Someone once asked Martin Luther about his accomplishments.  He answered saying, “I simply taught, preached, wrote God's Word: otherwise I did nothing….The Word did it all.”[2]  That's the mindset the Church needs. But the word does more than create.  The word also sustains and sanctifies.  It is the water that causes us to grow and we will not grow without it.  When he was tempted by the devil Jesus quoted Deuteronomy 8:3, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”  Or think of the Words of the Psalmist, who wrote, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105).  Without the word we will lose our way and starve.  We only have to look at Israel to see this.  Go back to King Josiah's day in 2 Chronicles 34.  After years of neglect, Josiah ordered a renovation of the temple and during that renovation the book of the law was found.  The word of the Lord had been lost—buried in a pile somewhere in the temple and forgotten for generations.  Josiah recognised the significance of that find.  He tore his clothes in grief and repentance and then gathered the priests and the elders of the people.  In their presence, he the King, read out the Lord's word and led the people in a covenant renewal ceremony.  God's word sanctifies his people. Jesus prayed this for us in his high priestly prayer in John 17: “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”  And St. Paul wrote to the Christians in Ephesus, “Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word” (Ephesians 5:25b-26).  Brothers and Sisters, without immersing ourselves in God's word we will not hear him.  There are no shortcuts.  Only his word gives life and only his word sanctifies.  This is why topical preaching—where the preacher drives the agenda—cannot be our main diet.  Occasionally a topical sermon it's necessary, but it cannot be our staple food.  This is why regular personal reading and study of the Bible is necessary.  We must be confronted by word to know God and to grow into the people he has called us to be.  And, of course, it goes without saying that we don't hear merely to hear or merely to read, but we immerse ourselves in God's word, we hear him speak, so that we can submit to his will and his ways.  And there's the Spirit at work, renewing our hearts and making fertile soil for the word to take root.  A healthy church not only proclaims God's word, but listens and is daily remade and sanctified by it. Timothy was St. Paul's young protégé.  When Paul wrote to him to give him advice as to how to shepherd the flock, it's worth noting that he gave him none of the advice that is common today.  He didn't advise Timothy to start a new program, to buy a fog machine, to hire a paid choir, to take a poll to find out what people want to hear.  He didn't do any of that.  He wrote to Timothy and said emphatically, “Preach the Word!” (2 Timothy 4:2).  Or think of the early Jerusalem Church.  When the apostles were struggling to keep up with the day-to-day tasks of the church, they ordained deacons to carry on that ministry and declared, “We will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:4).  They knew that God's word is life. One day we will see God face to face and know him perfectly, but until that day we live, not by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from his mouth.  As a church named “Living Word” my prayer is that we will be a people known in our community for our commitment to the life-giving and sanctifying word of God.  That we will be a people who value and love God's word, who put it at the centre of our ministry and of our lives, and who not only recognise its authority, but who are also seeking to submit to it and to be transformed.  I pray that we will be a people so full of God's word—this water of life—that as in John's vision of the New Jerusalem, it will overflow from us to carry God's life—the good news about Jesus—to the world around us. Let's pray: Heavenly Father, you have sent your word, incarnate in Jesus, to deliver us from our bondage to sin and death, and you have given your word written through the inspiration of your Spirit.  Remind us always that without your word there is no life.  As we go about the work of your kingdom, let us keep your word at the centre, that we might be always shaped by it and declaring it's life-giving power to the world.  We ask this in the name of Jesus our Lord, the word incarnate.  Amen.

Old Testament: Proverbs 11–12 Proverbs 11–12 (Listen) 11   A false balance is an abomination to the LORD,    but a just weight is his delight.2   When pride comes, then comes disgrace,    but with the humble is wisdom.3   The integrity of the upright guides them,    but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.4   Riches do not profit in the day of wrath,    but righteousness delivers from death.5   The righteousness of the blameless keeps his way straight,    but the wicked falls by his own wickedness.6   The righteousness of the upright delivers them,    but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust.7   When the wicked dies, his hope will perish,    and the expectation of wealth1 perishes too.8   The righteous is delivered from trouble,    and the wicked walks into it instead.9   With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor,    but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.10   When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices,    and when the wicked perish there are shouts of gladness.11   By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted,    but by the mouth of the wicked it is overthrown.12   Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense,    but a man of understanding remains silent.13   Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets,    but he who is trustworthy in spirit keeps a thing covered.14   Where there is no guidance, a people falls,    but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.15   Whoever puts up security for a stranger will surely suffer harm,    but he who hates striking hands in pledge is secure.16   A gracious woman gets honor,    and violent men get riches.17   A man who is kind benefits himself,    but a cruel man hurts himself.18   The wicked earns deceptive wages,    but one who sows righteousness gets a sure reward.19   Whoever is steadfast in righteousness will live,    but he who pursues evil will die.20   Those of crooked heart are an abomination to the LORD,    but those of blameless ways are his delight.21   Be assured, an evil person will not go unpunished,    but the offspring of the righteous will be delivered.22   Like a gold ring in a pig's snout    is a beautiful woman without discretion.23   The desire of the righteous ends only in good,    the expectation of the wicked in wrath.24   One gives freely, yet grows all the richer;    another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want.25   Whoever brings blessing will be enriched,    and one who waters will himself be watered.26   The people curse him who holds back grain,    but a blessing is on the head of him who sells it.27   Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor,2    but evil comes to him who searches for it.28   Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,    but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf.29   Whoever troubles his own household will inherit the wind,    and the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.30   The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,    and whoever captures souls is wise.31   If the righteous is repaid on earth,    how much more the wicked and the sinner!12   Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge,    but he who hates reproof is stupid.2   A good man obtains favor from the LORD,    but a man of evil devices he condemns.3   No one is established by wickedness,    but the root of the righteous will never be moved.4   An excellent wife is the crown of her husband,    but she who brings shame is like rottenness in his bones.5   The thoughts of the righteous are just;    the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.6   The words of the wicked lie in wait for blood,    but the mouth of the upright delivers them.7   The wicked are overthrown and are no more,    but the house of the righteous will stand.8   A man is commended according to his good sense,    but one of twisted mind is despised.9   Better to be lowly and have a servant    than to play the great man and lack bread.10   Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast,    but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.11   Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread,    but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.12   Whoever is wicked covets the spoil of evildoers,    but the root of the righteous bears fruit.13   An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,3    but the righteous escapes from trouble.14   From the fruit of his mouth a man is satisfied with good,    and the work of a man's hand comes back to him.15   The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,    but a wise man listens to advice.16   The vexation of a fool is known at once,    but the prudent ignores an insult.17   Whoever speaks4 the truth gives honest evidence,    but a false witness utters deceit.18   There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts,    but the tongue of the wise brings healing.19   Truthful lips endure forever,    but a lying tongue is but for a moment.20   Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,    but those who plan peace have joy.21   No ill befalls the righteous,    but the wicked are filled with trouble.22   Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD,    but those who act faithfully are his delight.23   A prudent man conceals knowledge,    but the heart of fools proclaims folly.24   The hand of the diligent will rule,    while the slothful will be put to forced labor.25   Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down,    but a good word makes him glad.26   One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor,5    but the way of the wicked leads them astray.27   Whoever is slothful will not roast his game,    but the diligent man will get precious wealth.628   In the path of righteousness is life,    and in its pathway there is no death.

But the word of God is not bound! 10 Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 11 The saying is trustworthy, for:   If we have died with him, we will also live with him;12   if we endure, we will also reign with him;  if we deny him, he also will deny us;13   if we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself. A Worker Approved by God 14 Remind them of these things, and charge them before God2 not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,3 a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 16 But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness, 17 and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 who have swerved from the truth, saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some. 19 But God's firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.” 20 Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable,4 he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work. 22 So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 23 Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. 24 And the Lord's servant5 must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, 25 correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.

Broadcasts – Christian Working Woman

What I've learned from other godly people who seem to have power in their prayer life is that, first, they are disciplined about praying. And secondly, they have developed a structure for their prayer life that enables them to pray more effectively. Jesus taught his disciples how to pray, and we need to learn as well. So, I've been sharing some ideas that can help you pray more powerfully. Praying Scripture Have you learned the joy and effectiveness of praying Scripture? I recommend this highly because it is truly powerful praying. How do you pray Scripture, you ask? There are several ways. First, as you are reading from the Bible, stop and pray back what you read. For example, I was reading Psalm 39 and like so many of the Psalms, it is a beautiful prayer. I prayed, “Lord, show me my life's end and the number of my days. Remind me of how brief and fleeting is my life, and therefore help me to be focused on what is eternally important and not be swallowed up with the affairs of this world.” You see how a Scripture passage can guide you to a very effective prayer. There are wonderful praise prayers in the Bible which you can use for your own. As you find them, write them in a prayer journal and use them. There are prayers for others that really improve the way you pray for friends and family. For example, pray Philippians 1:9 for people you know and love: "And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.” I pray Philippians 4:8 often: "Today, Lord, help me to think only what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable.” It's very important to pray about your thought life. I pray on the armor of God as outlined in Ephesians 6. These are just examples of praying Scripture, and it will energize your prayer life immensely.

WOMEN SIPPING ON LIFE (with doctor shannon) | Stop Drowning | Start Sipping | Daily Inspiration | Hope | Certainty | Abundanc

Here are 3 powerful, proven, effective ways to stop worry in its tracks... An individual reached out to me yesterday and said, "I'm stuck and I'm worried." Perhaps you can relate. Most people are unconsciously worrying. However, a great way to become conscious of it is being able to admit when things are simply NOT working. That's right, when things aren't working, chances are there's a root of worry somewhere. So the next time something's not working, ask yourself, “What am I worrying about and/or afraid of?” Once you identify that you're worrying about something do these 4 things. This will stop worry in its tracks... 1. Ask yourself, “Is this TRUE?” Is it THE TRUTH? 2. Turn worry into WONDER. 3. Start believing what you say you're hoping for. 4. Remind yourself that worrying is a waste of time…unless you love creating more of it. Worrying and hoping things change? Remember, worrying isn't hoping. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)  TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP:  Write down what you're worried about right now. Circle it. Then take yourself through this powerful process… Ask yourself, “Is this TRUE?” Begin to wonder about all the other possibilities and other perspectives. Start believing what you say you're hoping for. Remind yourself that worrying is a waste of time…unless you love creating more of it. Make a commitment today to stop the worry, and get your life working again.  Thanks for tuning in today, and every day...and allowing me to SIP ON LIFE with you.

 “How do you help your daughter when she feels she has disappointed her coach or her coach doesn't like her because they gave constructive feedback about her game?” — This is a question from a mom who is participating in our training for improving your female athlete's mental game without being pushy or saying the wrong thing.This is a common thing that happens to female athletes. In this situation, her daughter is taking this feedback as a personal attack on herself and she's feeling like her coaches are disappointed in her and don't like her anymore. How do we help our daughters who are in this situation? I'm going to tell you why this happens, what your daughter needs to do when it happens, and how you can help her.What's Happening:As humans, we are all wired for belonging and safety. And so no matter what environment we're in, we want to feel like we belong and that we're safe. This case also occurs in an athlete-coach relationship. Athletes want their coaches to like them at some point, and that's not wrong. Every time we are criticized, we all get the impression that someone does not like us. And that's what's happened to the female athlete. What She Needs to Do:Now that we've explained what's happening inside your daughter's mind. What she needs to do is realize that she has to separate what she's doing from who she is. What she's doing points to her sport. Who she is different and separate from that sport, or from what she does. Who she is as a person won't change no matter what her performance is. Regardless of her sport, she still has the same personality, and worth as a person. She would still be equally capable and deserving of love.How Can You Help:You can help by making sure that you are evaluating her as a person rather than just what she does. And you can do that by shifting the focus of your praise toward who she is as a person. Instead of praising her for winning, you can start praising her for seeing her do her best. Think about what you love about her.Highlight her good qualities not on her achievements in sports but rather on the kind of person that she is. Is she generous? Does she love helping people? Is she the kind of person who just brings in joy and energy? We all want to feel that we belong. We all want to feel safe. Asking for the coach's validation is also a sign that she may be discreetly seeking validation from you, her parents.If this is the case, you can gently remind her of your love for her regardless of her performance. Remind her that there's nothing she could do that would make you more proud than you are right now of her.Help her separate her identity and worth from what she does. Help her strengthen her mental game and give her the opportunity to be more confident about herself. In this way she'll stop seeking validation from other people. She'll be able to handle constructive criticism and be truly confident in who she is. **********Helpful Links:Join our FREE training for Sports Moms - How To Strengthen Your Athlete Daughter's Mental Game Without Being Pushy Or Saying The Wrong Thing.The BEST way to help us spread the word and get this information into the hands of millions of parents, coaches, and female athletes is by leaving a rating and review on Apple Podcasts.

Jason Rigby will take a solo flight for several episodes. This is the first in his series of podcasts at Higher Density Living while Alexander McCaig is away at the moment. In this episode, Jason takes us along to his eloquent prose about finding the meaning of love.    This episode is a full-length response to one of our email inquiries. Wonderful couple of wanderers shared an insightful newsletter. We ask the question, what are regrets? Why do we feel the pain of the past that keeps us coming back? Can we ever go back in reverse and manifest our destiny according to our desire? At first glance, it may seem like something out of self-help. But there is a much deeper meaning underneath it. Dealing with the problems of regret is a completely spiritual thing. As a complex subject, the generous people behind the inquiry share a wonderful pool of knowledge in dealing with regrets. You have to ask yourself, how could I change the way I think?   The thing is it is out of our control, out of time and space. We identify and play victim with the hurt. You can't stop the waves, but you can grab a surfboard and see how you go with the flow. You just need to look inside of yourselves because the answer is in there. Jason simply asks to find the answers within ourselves. Remind yourself that you are loved.   Let us listen to Jason as he talks about regrets. www.higherdensityliving.com

Join host Janet Berrong, an expert in the health and wellness industry, as she shares about being physically fit God's way. ***** Welcome to Celebrating God's Grace, a Women World Leaders podcast. I'm your host, Janet Berrong. Thank you for joining us today as we celebrate God's grace in our lives, in ministry, and around the world. It's an honor for me to be here sharing with you today. Some of the things that are near and dear to my heart, health, wellness beauty in Jesus. Wow, what a combo, right? While they really do go hand in hand. For many years, I've worked in the health and wellness industry. And I've witnessed the restoration, transformation in healings with the application of these principles, eating fresh living foods, getting enough physical exercise, and spiritually being in alignment with the Word of God. God made us to be healthy and whole, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Today I want to focus on the physical health. Have you ever heard this saying, If I knew I'd lived this long, I would have taken better care of myself? Well, in a sense, it's funny, but in reality, it's the truth. Physical health has three key elements, which include the physical activity, rest and nutrition. To have a good standing on physical health. We need a balance of these three elements. God teaches us that our bodies are the temple. In first Corinthians 316 through 17 says, Don't you know that yourselves are God's temple, and that God's Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy that person. For God's temple is sacred. And you together are that temple. It is found once again in First Corinthians 619 through 20. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God, you are not your own. You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. Not only do we want to take care of our temples for our own physical well being, but we are physical representation of God. Recently, I attended some local American college football games, it reminded me of how much they have to train to be in and win the game. They have to be physically fit, and emotionally and mentally focused. I see that for my daily life as well. If I'm not fit for the day, I get tired and weary physically, then it starts to affect me mentally. Regular exercise has been proven to reduce stress, ward off anxiety and feelings of depression, boosts self esteem, improve sleep. Exercise also has the added benefits of strengthening your heart, increasing your energy level. It lowers the blood pressure. It improves muscle tone and strength. It strengthens and builds bones. It helps reduce body fat. It makes you look fit and healthy. If you're anything like me, you have to have a plan. And my plan is taking time for self care works best in the morning. And that means nothing else gets in the way that day. If it's meal, prep, exercise, and quiet time with the Lord. I know he wants only the best for you my beautiful sisters. Until next time, keep your shoulders back your eyes on him standing tall and confident. Philippians one six reads. I am certain that God who began a good work within you will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Father, so many things happen to end up intimidating women who have committed themselves to serve you. the busyness of life and the attacks from the enemy, cause many women to second guess themselves and some of them even give up on the desires to serve you in ministry. Father God, let your divine power be upon these women who are devoted to serving you in different capacities all over the world. Remind them to be encouraged when the storms of life are against them in the name of Jesus, I believe in pray. Amen. Thank you for listening to women world leaders podcast.

Jenna stopped in her tracks, sighing in frustration as she bent down to pick yet another rock out of her shoe.     “Why on earth am I suddenly picking up rocks every time I walk the dog,” she wondered.    They finished their usual route, and at home, Jenna slipped off her shoes and discovered the problem: she'd worn those old slip-ons for so long that she wore a hole right through the soles of both shoes!      Philippians 4:6 reminds us, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”     Sometimes our prayer lives are like Jenna's old shoes: we take them for granted, setting aside a daily prayer habit and coming back when it's convenient — putting off prayer until we can find the time, or in a time of trouble or desperation, when we really need God to intervene.     But prayer isn't meant to be a sometimes thing.      We cultivate a healthy prayer life when we communicate with God often — daily, or even more than once a day. When we let our communication with the Lord wear thin, we are missing out on the blessing of His listening ear. He wants to hear from us: both our praises and our problems!     Don't tuck your prayer life away for later, like an old pair of shoes in the back of the closet. Pray throughout the day whenever you have a quiet moment to reach out to God, and build regular prayer into your day to ensure there are no holes in your communication with your Heavenly Father.     In fact, why don't we pray right now?     Lord, thank you for being available to us through prayer. We're so grateful for your love for us, and your desire to hear from us, your children. Remind us to keep the lines of communication open. Amen.
