Description:

Rather than looking at life as driven solely by function and duty, spiritually minded people have an understanding that life is guided by an overarching meaning.  They are driven by a desire to accentuate love in each element of daily living.  As spirituality takes over, their influence becomes enhanced because others can more clearly appreciate an outpouring of their respect for human dignity.

Something to Think about:

 

  • Spirituality represents a transformation of the inner character.
  • Spiritual people are known as wise, discerning how to respond to humanity in a manner that promotes goodness.
  • A simple goal of spiritual people is being a giver of joy and encouragement.

 

Let’s Talk Question:

As you have aged, how has your understanding of spirituality changed?

Description:

While you cannot always choose what your circumstances will bring, you can choose your attitudes.  This podcast focuses on 4 primary beliefs espoused by the late Viktor Frankl who penned his thoughts about a successful life after living through the horrors of the Holocaust. You will be challenged to receive his message of meaning and apply it to everyday life experiences.

Something to Think about:

 

  • Success and happiness are not the goal, but the byproduct.
  • You can learn to predetermine how you will respond to any situation.
  • Meaningful choices can be made as you ponder any common situation in your home.

 

Let’s Talk Question:

What key beliefs do you hold that give you a sense of meaning in your roles within the family?

Description:

Differences in close relationships cannot be avoided. When they arise, what is your tendency?  You can use the moment to be destructive or you can use it to destroy.  In this segment we will examine how to respond to relational differences in ways that can make you a more well-rounded person and can take your relationship to a higher plane.

Something to Think about:

 

  • Too many individuals respond to differences with invalidation and control.
  • Every person has blind spots, including you. Differences present opportunities to grow and learn.
  • Your maturity level is most on display in the midst of differences.

 

Let’s Talk Question:

What adjustments could you make as you choose to respond to differences constructively?

Description:

When a person engages in an extramarital affair, it is inevitably accompanied by deception and deservedness (an attitude of entitlement).  For healing to move forward, these two ingredients need to be removed as thoroughly as possible.  This episode will explore the nature of deception and deservedness so you can learn if trust can be rebuilt.

Something to Think about:

 

  • As difficult as it is to come to terms with the act of adultery, secrecy and deception can be and even more troublesome quality to accept.
  • When an offending spouse responds to the problem with an in-charge or demanding nature, it illustrates a lack of true contrition.
  • The offending partner will need to maintain patience, perhaps for an extended time, as efforts are made to get a broken marriage back on track.

 

Let’s Talk Question:

How much questioning and probing is fair as one partner tries to come to terms with the other partner’s infidelity?
