How To Stay Motivated and Be Inspired, Part 2

10/13/2019
More
Are you trying to motivate yourself to do something for which you have no real vision? Motivation and inspiration can be an uphill battle when we try to work ourselves up to do something that doesn't fit, or when we keep sabotaging ourselves in other ways. Learning to manage our own internal worlds frees us to pursue the passions God placed inside us. Also, if you liked yesterday's quotes, you'll love the ones Cinthia shares in this episode, including one from Dr. Seuss!

The Wedding In Cana (first aired 7-5-15)

9/9/2019
More
Having recently officiated at her niece's wedding, Cinthia shares insights from the message she gave during the ceremony! Jesus's miracle at the wedding in Cana was the first one recorded, one that happened at the beginning of his ministry and, He initially stated, before His time for miracles and ministry had come. That means it's the miracle where we most clearly see Jesus functioning as the perfect man who was a human member of a family. Yes, He was the Son of God, but it seems at the...

The Power of A Minute

9/2/2019
More
David, the psalmist, asked God to teach him to number his days correctly so that he could gain a heart of wisdom. Today Cinthia shares something she does every year on her birthday and how the practice helps her value the time God gives her. Minutes are precious; minutes are powerful. History can change direction in a minute; lives can be forever altered. Minutes are gifts. Still, none of us (other than Jesus) uses all our minutes to the fullest. What do we do with the minutes we regret, and...

Making Friends With the Word "NO" (originally aired 8-12-18)

8/26/2019
More
It's two letters. One syllable. One tiny word. Why is it so hard for some people to say "no" to others? Why is it so hard to say "no" to ourselves? Cinthia asserts that the ability to say "no" is a gift from God, one that is meant to keep us safe, and that it can become a best friend. She also explores the impossibility of truly owning our "yes" if we're still rejecting our "no."

Song of A Wounded Heart: Guest Lora Jones

8/18/2019
More
There are times when life disintegrates into a living nightmare. Lora Jones experienced this. A pastor's wife and mother of two children, 11 and 14, Lora woke up in a car accident that took her husband, her son, and her daughter within a matter of hours. In her new book, Song of A Wounded Heart, she describes the miraculous experience of hearing God sing to her, even as she was trapped in the van and gripping her husband's head in her hands. She describes how, in the days and years to come,...

Stop Trying So Hard: Becoming Your Own Best Version (first aired 4-14-19)

8/11/2019
More
This week, we are revisiting a great podcast that beautifully presents some of Cinthia's foundational material. Listen to this episode on its own, or preface it with the 4-7-19 podcast that preceded it ("Stop Trying So Hard: You're Worth More Than You Know"). Once we embrace our status as valuable to God no matter what we do, we are free to grow up emotionally and take our places in the world as emotional adults. What would happen if you stopped trying to be good enough and started living...

God Wants You Truly Living

7/28/2019
More
If you've been around Christianity long, you've probably heard or talked about the idea of "dying to self," a biblical concept that sometimes gets misrepresented and confusing. Sometimes we try to improve ourselves, killing off the parts of ourselves we don't like. God knows whom He made each of us to be, and He knows what is killing the real us. Cinthia reads excerpts from one of her previous books, exploring what it means to truly live.

Why No Peace?

7/21/2019
More
We've all heard the phrase "trust issues." Some of us have them with God. Cinthia continues last week's discussion of what it means to partake of the peace God gives us, this time looking more at how our relationship with Him can be a place of transformation, healing, and peace.

A Dog is a Cheetah's Best Friend

7/14/2019
More
Did you know cheetahs have anxiety? Peace is hard to come by for lots of living creatures. If you're one of them, you will appreciate this exploration of acceptance, trust, and the gift of peace Jesus gave us. Apparently, even for cheetahs, there is no peace without the presence of someone, or Someone, we trust.

How Do You Know You Are Loved?, Part 2

7/7/2019
More
Remember the old-fashioned daisy petal game? "He loves me, he loves me not..." Figuring out whether someone loves us is a much bigger task than just listening for the sentence, "I love you." We know we aren't perfect and can't expect perfection from our relationship partners, but we do need to be trustworthy and to discern whether we are in relationship with a trustworthy person. Cinthia continues exploring how to know whether someone loves you, giving specific behaviors and qualities to...

How Do You Know You Are Loved?, Part 1

6/30/2019
More
Fans of 80's songs will especially love this episode, though the topic applies to everyone, regardless of generation or musical tastes. We desperately need to be loved, but how do we know if the "love" we are receiving is really love? The words "I love you" can be spoken in so many contexts, including those that involve abuse, apathy, and other profound dysfunction. Cinthia explores the quest to know love and discusses how to know when we are really being loved.

You Are the God Who Sees Me: Why We Need to Be Seen

6/23/2019
More
Humans have an innate, primal need to be seen and understood -- even humans who are desperately wanting to hide. Remember Hagar? Used and discarded, waiting for her son to die in the desert, she encountered God in the wilderness and called Him "the God Who sees me." She was then able to go back with her son and face the situation she could not previously handle. Cinthia discusses Hagar, John Newton (the former slave trader who eventually wrote "Amazing Grace"), and the rest of us. When we...

6/16/2019
More
What do you experience when you hear news or discussion of the recent court decisions regarding abortion laws? This issue is tender for so many people and demands that we love well on many levels. Cinthia's guest today, Roland Warren, is the president of Care Net, a movement of more than 1,000 life-affirming pregnancy centers that also runs a real-time call center providing pregnancy-decision coaching. Along with his now-wife, Mr. Warren chose life for their own unplanned child, despite...

Foundations for the Present AND The Value of Etiquette

6/9/2019
More
What do you think of when you hear the word "manners?" Do you associate it with outdated stuffiness or see it as sadly lacking in the modern era? Today's episode is a two-for-one. Cinthia starts by building on last week's "Undoing Your Past" theme, this time exploring how to build a strong foundation in the present. She then discusses the value of showing respect for ourselves and others and ways old-fashioned etiquette can bring a little class to our lives.

Your Best Year Ever: Undoing Your Past

6/2/2019
More
Do you ever cringe when you remember things you've done? Do you know that feeling when waves of regret and shame sweep over you? We can't redo the past, but we can create new history that changes the present effects of our past decisions.

Forgiving Yourself (first aired 9-17-16)

5/27/2019
More
Do you ever find yourself lamenting how things might have been if only you had made different choices? Sometimes we apply forgiveness to everyone else. Cinthia reminds us that God takes seriously His role as the only Judge; sometimes this means we have to stop trying to punish ourselves.

The Burden of Unforgiveness (first aired 5-28-17)

5/19/2019

We all know forgiveness is important, but how does it really impact us when we carry grudges against others, ourselves, even God? Cinthia explores physical, emotional, and spiritual implications of withholding forgiveness.

5/12/2019
More
When is it appropriate to confront someone else's annoying habit? Is it healthy to self-censor regarding our own habits?
