EP 124: It's "Not Bad" - Morality In Our Everyday Lives

3/4/2024
In studying forgiveness as a moral action, I dug deeper into the idea of morals and morality itself. What I often call "natural law" can also be called the "natural moral law" so I wanted to better understand the moral component of the natural law. I had some huge insights -- things I'd never thought of before that make my own inner battles with myself and my conscience take on a whole new dimension. Join me today as we dig into what it means to be moral, why we say something is "not wrong" and how that harms us, and the role of scripture in our moral, intellectual, spiritual, and emotional lives.

EP 122: How Values Can Heal Our Nation (and You)

2/7/2024
What holds any organization together, whether it's a family, business, or nation? SHARE VALUES. And the nature of those values, how they're taught and promoted, and whether or not people are held accountable to them, is the fabric that makes individual lives and organizes work, or fall apart. That is precisely what is happening to our culture today--the loss of shared values. Join me in this podcast to learn HOW incorporating shared values has been the foundation of every major civilization, WHY shared values work, WHAT they have to do with the natural law and virtue, and WHERE you can start today to apply these principles in your own life.

EP 121: Seeing "Your" Truth and "The" Truth

1/23/2024
Through ideologies like "wokeness," LGBTQ+, postmodernism and others, we are fed a constant diet of the "your truth, my truth" paradigm. Although there is some truth to the idea that you and I see things very differently, we don't have to choose between the concept of "your" truth and "the" truth--when we properly understand what they really mean, and how they can work together. Join me in this podcast for images and stories that will help you discern between these concepts of truth and learn how the natural law can be seen more clearly!

EP 120: What Comes Before the Natural Law

1/16/2024
Awakened one morning with quotes in my mind, I spent the day researching and making connections until I saw the central problem we face--what comes before the natural law. If we want to present God's laws and principles as the solution to today's problems, we need to first show others that there actually is a problem to solve. With beginning insights into where to go from here, in this podcast I introduce you to the quotes I found, the connections I made, and how we'll begin to unravel the problem and the solution of the natural moral law.

EP 119: The Seeds of Feminism- The Impact of A Doll's House Discussed

1/10/2024
A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen, first published in 1879 was, at one point, the most frequently performed play in the world and has continued to be performed regularly throughout the 20th and into the 21st century. In addition to its popularity with the public, many scholars list Ibsen right after Shakespeare as the greatest playwright in history. Ibsen, like Shakespeare holds a mirror up to life by creating situations where his audience is forced to look at itself and its underlying assumptions. In A Doll's House, Ibsen introduces us to Dora, who occupies her husband's home like a doll in a dollhouse. She does everything the men around her have always told her to do, never bothering to truly think for herself. And when the most noble act she has ever performed comes to be seen by the man she is sacrificing for as irresponsible and dangerous, she is forced to look inside for the answers. Her internal struggle results in a discussion about the nature of womanhood and the value of the individual—as well as the seeds of feminism. As Nora explains her intellectual journey and the conclusions she has drawn, she resolves to leave her family in order to repair her own mind and soul. Controversial, insightful, thought-provoking and persuasive, this play not only set the stage for how we think and act today, it will force you to take a closer look at who you are and what you truly stand for.

The Quickest Shortcut to Principle Centered Living You’re Ever Going To Get!

8/26/2021
“Our culture is moving further and further away from principles and truth. What we really ultimately hope to give you, and to build and create, is a community that has the power to shift the culture. We do that by beginning with shifting the culture in our homes and raising principle-centered children. But we also do that by reaching out into our communities and building bridges through emphasizing that there are fundamental truths that can unify us all. And all of that begins with empowering every mom with a clear understanding of true principles and how to apply them in her life.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher Are you ready for the fast track to a principled life?! HERE IT IS! This fall you have the opportunity to gather in Dallas, TX with other moms just like you--truth seekers who want to build a strong family culture centered on principles--and spend an entire day gleaning all the most important concepts, ideas, and tools that Audrey and her team have gathered in over 20 years of research, study, and teaching! Do NOT pass up this unique and one-time chance to be mentored, inspired, and trained in the ability to pierce the confusion and identify the principles. Not only that, you'll be armed with skills for implementing those principles in your daily life and enjoying the abundant blessings that always follow principles.

I just wanted a way to find a way through that and I knew I desperately needed it.” ~ Tracie Hyde “Natural law is a way to bring people together; to connect us at our core.” ~ Audrey Rindlisbacher “It’s been my passion to try to govern my life according to principles. I wanted to discover what they are and build a framework that can be communicated clearly to give other people tools for the discovery and utilization of true principles at the most basic, easiest level possible.” ~ Audrey Rindlisbacher “I got so much clarity by asking better questions and focusing on the outcome that I want and then connecting that to some principles and first principles.” ~ Lindsey Wright “Once you understand the principles and the outcome then it’s really clear what the next step is.” ~ Lindsey Wright “Now I have a way forward. I have a way to act because principles have given me something specific to do - a direction to act that I didn’t know before.” ~ Tracie Hyde “The role that each of these types play, from natural law to first principles, principles, and applications, is in helping us to clarify our vision and to figure out the what, the why, and the how, to move forward.” ~ Audrey Rindlisbacher “They change the way I think about myself and the way I think about the world. They give me hope…They help me get clear.” ~ Audrey Rindlisbacher “They create long-term solutions and peace.” ~ Audrey Rindlisbacher “When we ask the five types of questions that’s what helps keep us focused on finding principles, articulating them and applying them.” ~ Tracie Hyde “Just understanding this framework, that there is truth,

The Rest of Her Story: Sharidean Flint

5/9/2021
"I feel the sustaining presence of the Savior and a deep sense of calm." ~Sharidean Flint One year ago, my sister was healthy and happy —as a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, friend, neighbor, and community leader. If you were part of our community then you probably watched or listened to an interview I did with her about her childhood, motherhood, and path to becoming the first woman mayor of Hyde Park city. We discussed her challenges, hardships, and the difficulties she’d overcome in her life. I also made sure to highlight how she lived the 7 Laws of Life Mission and the way in which they prepared her to become an amazing source of love and inspiration to those around her. Since our interview, Sharidean had continued to do all the good of which she was capable, serving others in her fun-loving way. Then, at the end of January, intense migraines began. Within two weeks she had brain surgery and was diagnosed with glioblastoma. Almost from the moment she was diagnosed I felt that I needed to share with you what I saw, heard, and experienced, so that, along with her family, friends, and community, you could be lifted by the legacy she has left. This podcast is the rest of her story. (P.S. When I went in to create the image for the podcast, I was going to post a picture of us together or of her with her family. But then I visited her Facebook page and noticed that I hadn't seen her newest profile picture. I've used that picture here. The image and words are what she created -- a powerful, faithful message which demonstrates all she stood for.)

Stuck In Your Hero’s Journey?

3/3/2021
“There is an exhilaration in knowing who you are.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher The first time I learned about "The Hero's Journey" by Joseph Campbell, I was blown away. It was everywhere! The idea that there was a form for the way the best stories are told - across time and culture - spoke to how similar we really are as humans. But for me, it was much bigger than that. My question was: WHY? Why do we tell the same kinds of stories, century after century, and why are these stories made up of the same components? Why do our best stories talk of "calls," "departures," "trials," and "treasures"? What is it about these kinds of stories that evoke our imagination and resonate with us so much? I believe it is because we are identifying with the Adventure of Self-Discovery. Deep down inside all of us want to grow and learn and become more than we are. "The Hero's Journey" reminds us of what that path looks like, that we need to say "Yes" to the call in order to begin the growth process, and that although the way will be full of obstacles and hardships the pay-off will be well worth the struggle. In this podcast, I explore "The Hero's Journey" using stories of those who have rejected and those who have accepted the call. I look at why we reject the call and remind us all of some of the treasures we can obtain if we accept it. I also encourage you, if you've heard the call of self-discovery - through an MDM program or other opportunity - and you've rejected the call, or you've hesitated on your journey, to ask yourself "Why"? And begin again on the adventure of your own self-discovery, knowing you won't be disappointed.

Quotes from this episode: “Andrew, if you ever forget that under that sheet is a child of God you need to quit preaching.” ~Jean Childs Young “We are like any growing thing, going to experience resistance, pain, trials, and tests. A flower has to burst out of its seed, push against the soil, and spring up above the earth. It has to put down roots, weather the rain and storms. It is always pushing, that's what makes it strong. It grows by pushing through the resistance. That is how we are fashioned, it's what we are meant to do.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher “Why do we do it? Partly because that is what we are made to do. Partly because it is what makes life worth living. Partly because that's the only way we're really going to know ourselves. But mostly, we do it for the reward, the pay off - of who we will become, and the people we will bless.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher “There is an exhilaration in knowing who you are.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher Books from this episode: Links from this episode:

Principles of Government Part 2: Rights of Life, Liberty, Property, and Conscience

2/24/2021
“Whatever is at the center of a person's life forms the fabric of his conscience. The conscience must be educated from divine sources in order for it to be keen and sharp, responsive and sensitive to God. ” ~Stephen Covey The rights of life, liberty, and property seem pretty straight-forward and self-explanatory, but the right of conscience?! What does that mean? And more importantly, why does it matter? In this podcast, Audrey and Lindsey explore the 2 Consciences taught by Stephen Covey and why understanding them is so critical. With so much confusion in the world around rights and entitlement, absolute or relative truth, and the nature of the conscience, this podcast is a MUST LISTEN for those who want to better understand the proper role of government in society. Listener's Guide: Use the time stamps below to skip to any part of the podcast. 0:45 Summary - Principles of Government Part 1 3:30 Understanding the Significance of Basic Rights 8:11 Conscience - What is It 18:30 Understanding Conscience and How it Affects Us 20:55 Shinichi Suzuki 23:26 James Madison 27:03 Albert Schweitzer 27:40 Immaculée Ilibagiza 28:05 Your Center is Your conscience 29:50 Recognising the Difference in the Two Consciences 38:40 Government and conscience Quotes from this episode: “The conscience is the internal voice, our sensitivity or awareness, our sense of right and wrong. This is why we can say we are all born with a conscience because on some level we have a sense that there is a right and there is a wrong and that we ought to choose the right.” ~Stephen Covey “We basically have two consciences. We have a divine conscience and a social conscience. The divine one is the true one. It is the light God has given every man who comes into the world. The second one is also given to us but this one comes from our human experiences - from our upbringing, the culture around us, the norms, the mores, the traditions, values, and beliefs, and from the level of our obedience to the divine conscience.” ~Stephen Covey “The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.” ~Holy Bible, Psalm 37:31 “ We must educate our conscience. Once a person is true to the light he has received he is then capable of receiving more light and obeying it. Until he is true to the light already given additional light would only condemn him for he is capable neither of understanding it nor appreciating it. He would fall into the trap of being given a gift and being unable to receive it. The Lord gives to his children what they are able to receive and no more. If they are true to that he will give them more. ” ~Stephen Covey “The voice of your conscience is the voice of God.” ~Leo Tolstoy “Do the next right thing.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher “You can speed up your own personal growth by deciding to stay in obedience to your divine conscience.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher “In the former sense, a man’s land, or merchandise, or money is called his property. In the latter sense, a man has property in his opinions and the free communication of them. He has a property of peculiar value in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them. He has a property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person. He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them. In a word, as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights...conscience is the most sacred of all properties.” ~James Madison “Whatever is at the center of a person's life forms the fabric of his conscience. The conscience must be educated from divine sources in order for it to be keen and sharp, responsive and sensitive to God. ” ~Stephen Covey “The heart never takes the place of the head but can, and should obey it."

What Is A Mother of Principle?

2/17/2021
“MDM has quenched a thirst to really be consistent in applying principles. It has broken open the doors of empowerment, freedom, and joy by helping me apply principles daily.” ~Leanna Irving "Understanding principles fundamentally changes you." ~Lindsey Wright “Permanent change is hard but living principles is the road to permanent change.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher “When you are a Mother of Principle you no longer are so easily deceived.” ~Kim Miner Listener's Guide: Use the time stamps below to skip to any part of the podcast. 5:25 Audrey Rindlisbacher-My introduction to the Law of Nature and Principles 13:18 LeeAnna Irving-My introduction to the Law of Nature and Principles 17:00 Kim Miner-My introduction to the Law of Nature and Principles 18:43 Lindsey Wright-My introduction to the Law of Nature and Principles 20:50 The Impact of Understanding and Living Laws and Principles 27:24 Understanding and Living Principles Isn't Easy 36:09 Other Qualities of a Mother of Principle Quotes from this episode: “ The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions… ” ~John Locke “For he has so intimately connected, so inseparably interwoven the laws of eternal justice with the happiness of each individual, that the latter cannot be attained but by observing the former; and, if the former be punctually obeyed, it cannot but induce the latter. The truth is that right actions done for the wrong reason do not help to build the internal quality or character called a virtue.” ~William Blackstone “MDM has quenched a thirst to really be consistent in applying principles. It has broken open the doors of empowerment, freedom, and joy by helping me apply principles daily.” ~LeeAnna Irving “It is satisfying to understand principles and then see them in current articles and in the classics. Understanding principles fundamentally changes you.” ~Lindsey Wright “In the world of memes and self-help, there is a lot of the application of principles. Applications of principle are a dime a dozen but it is digging into the root, the core that empowers us to handle anything.” ~LeeAnna Irving “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive...” ~Holy Bible, Ephesians 4: 14 “It is interesting the things I have had to unlearn, especially from graduate school, that aren't rooted in true principles but that sound good. ” ~Kim Miner “ ...truth seldom is sweet; it is almost invariably bitter.” ~Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn “It's hard work to identify false beliefs and put principles into action because you must change who you are. ” ~Lindsey Wright “Permanent change is hard but [living principles] is the road to permanent change.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher “When you are a mother of principle you no longer are so easily deceived.” ~Kim Miner “Mothers of Principle have paradigm shifts that make them permanently different.” ~Audrey Rindlisbacher “When mom elevates herself everyone else is elevated.” ~LeeAnna Irving “Principles are concentrated truth.” ~LeeAnna Irving Books from this episode: Links from this episode:
