With a few weeks off from the podcast, we encourage you to take the time to review some of your favorite interviews or use the time to digest the InCourage 2020 Gathering - an incredible resource gathering with over forty incredible experts speaking on topics we need to talk about. Go to www.incouragegathering.com to get your ticket! All sessions and breakouts will be on demand from July 10 to July 31st. After two years of planning, we are excited to see women finally gather all over to lean into who God says He is and who He says we are. Enjoy!

Episode 32 (Part 2):  Sexual Wholeness Series:  Healing from Sexual Brokenness with Josh & Jaelyn Harrel

Episode 32 (Part 2): Sexual Wholeness Series: Healing from Sexual Brokenness with Josh & Jaelyn Harrel

June 1, 2020
Welcome to a short series on sexual wholeness. We have been helping leaders live with integrity for a couple decades now and sexuality seems to be at the forefront of what many are struggling with in our counseling offices. In these sacred spaces, leaders and their families are processing pornography addictions, sexual betrayal, abuse, identity and how to raise children with healthy sexuality. These topics are rarely discussed, misunderstood, and deeply impacted by our individual experiences (and traumas). Sexuality evokes all kinds of emotions and we warn you that this series is not an easy one to listen to, though absolutely necessary if you are living in today's culture. Our goal is to help us all understand what's beneath the white waters of our sexuality and to find freedom from the white knuckling behaviors we have somehow championed in the Church for years. 
 
In Part 2, we continue the dialogue with Josh & Jaelyn Harrel who courageously share their personal journey toward healing.
