Podcast 150: : Live the Questions (Gem interviewed by Yohonna Smith on Girl’s Talking Life Podcast)

Nov 23, 2020

Can you believe that What Does Your Soul Love? released just a little over a year ago? With 2020 being what it is, that seems like an entire lifetime ago. Today, I’m sharing with you a bonus episode and it’s a bit different than usual. It’s different because I’m on the other side of the microphone in this conversation. And I loved this interview so much that I wanted to share it with you, here, on the Unhurried Living Podcast.

The Process of Construction

Jan 08, 2020

 

In early December, Alan and I spent a week in Avila Beach, CA planning content for the first quarter of 2020.  It's very helpful to get away and focus on that kind of thinking.

While we were there I noticed the same apartment complex down the street that has been under construction for at least a year, maybe two. And each time we visit, it doesn’t look like much is being done. Did they run out of money? Do they not have a plan? Is it just not at the top of their to-do list?...

Waking Up to the Illusion of Control

Sep 25, 2019

In our new book, What Does Your Soul Love?, one of the eight questions we ask is, “What Are You Clinging To?” It’s the question of control. Many of us struggle with control issues. We want to feel safe, so we seek to take control of things and even people around us. This doesn’t generally turn out so well, for us or for others.

What we’ve discovered in our journey with God is that our souls actually love to be abandoned to the loving and good purposes of God for...

Sep 23, 2019

We are diving into part two of our discussion on our new book, What Does Your Soul Love? 

When it comes to our life in Christ, change is part of the invitation. Transformation is essential to the journey. But we get stuck when we let what we perceive to be negative emotions and issues stop us from moving forward. Today we are going to address pain, fear, control and, finally, joy.

What Does Your Soul Love?

Sep 18, 2019

When asked to choose between one or the other, would you prefer to ask questions…or to have answers? Most of us would readily admit that we like answers. And as soon as possible, thank you very much.

However, as spiritual directors, Alan and I are accustomed to asking questions and then not striving for answers right away. Sometimes a good work is actually accomplished inside of us as we hold the questions—to linger with them and let them be answered in layers.

Podcast 92: What Does Your Soul Love (Pt. 1)

Sep 16, 2019

How do you feel about change? Some of us naturally love change. We like spontaneity, variety, new experiences. And some of us naturally resist change. We like stability, tradition, we like to “do it again.”

But personal preferences are not exactly what we’re talking about today. When it comes to our life in Christ, change is part of the invitation. Transformation is essential to the journey. This week and next we are going to share some key insights from our new book, "What...
