Thoughtful and encouraging!
I really appreciate Lindsay's willingness to provide REAL conversation on a variety of hard topics. When you're going through a difficult season, sometimes the best medicine is the voice of someone who walked the same road. Great job, Lindsay!
I believe the we choose Joy and since we cannot choose our circumstances, we must decide to choose joy not matter what life throws our way. Such a great resources of overcomers and people who have chosen joy and thrived through trials.
An entertaining and surprisingly provocative look at Christian perspectives on therapy and treatment theory. Lindsay has conversations that extend beyond confronting the issues her guests have faced and explore the soul of each issue. Many pop-Christian perspectives ignore or simply do not speak to the viability of hypnosis or chemical treatments for disorders of the body and mind and Lindsay offers a balanced perspective through her very interesting and uplifting guest's experiences.
