How to Grab Yourself Some Peace (TAW008)
Episode 008 - How to Grab Yourself Some Peace. You want peace. I want peace. We need to quiet those shrieking monkeys we talked about last episode. But how do we do it? Will God give us peace if we ask? What if the obstacle to peace isn't outside of us, or even in better prayers or spiritual practices. What if the obstacle is inside our own hearts and minds?

Your To-Do List Is Numinous (TAW006)
Episode 006 - Your To-Do List Is Numinous Do you find yourself longing for those big, goose-bumpy, glowy moments of spiritual connection? Those mountain-top experiences are so great.

Making Friends With Your Limits (TAW005)
Episode 005 - Making Friends With Your Limits Do you feel like you have to do ALL THE THINGS! Is FOMO a real fear for you? Do you struggle with anxiety or frustration because you can't seem to manage all the commitments you've made? Our culture is allergic to the idea of limits. We're told that effective people can do it all. But this is a lie. A good life, a peaceful and healthy life-even the Abundant life--is marked by a clear awareness of limits. You may be surprised to hear this, but...
The Freedom To Not Get Your Way (TAW004)
Episode 004 - The Freedom To Not Get Your Way In our culture we bear an awful burden: The profound need to get our own way. This burden gets in the way of our relationships undermines our spiritual growth. It can even impede our sense of connection to God. Not getting our way is often painful, and we are hardwired to avoid pain! And yet there are times when not getting our way, even when it's painful, is the best possible thing. And of course, Jesus modeled this for us in the Garden of...
When Jesus Changed Religion Forever (TAW003)
Episode 003 - When Jesus Changed Religion Forever Across the history of human religion we see the same structure over and over. In order to access God, or become enlightened, or get a blessing you have to go to that certain special spiritual place at the certain special time and there the special spiritual people will help you offer your sacrifice, or offering, or gift -- and maybe then you'll find what you need. The benefit of that system is that it is abundantly clear and concrete. But in...
The Deeper Conversion (TAW EP002)
Episode 002 - The Deeper Conversion. We look around us at people wearing the label "Christian," maybe we even look at ourselves, and wonder. Isn't there something more? Shouldn't life in Christ make a tangible difference in our experience and the way we live? Yes! We are meant to have an experience of Jesus that changes more than our beliefs--It should change our perception, our desires, and the way we live in the world. And that's exactly what scripture shows--our conversion is a...

Are you hooked on Jesus, but maybe you've struggled to see real growth or transformation in the "church activities routine" that you were handed by the church?
