Episode #32- Johnny Baker


Johnny Baker.png

I’m with Johnny Baker, National Director of Celebrate Recovery talking about overcoming our hurts, hang-ups and our habits with Celebrate Recovery.

We talk about his own powerful story of recovery and the truth that God wants us healthy and doing the work of getting healthy is some of the most important work we’ll ever do.

In this episode we discuss:

1. What exactly is Celebrate Recovery.

2. How we need Jesus and each other in order for recovery to happen.

3. How finding freedom takes action.

Listen now:

Click here to listen on Spotify.



Favorite quotes:

1.  There is nothing wrong with reading your Bible. Its an important part of our Christian life and it’s an important part of Celebrate Recovery, but so many of us need more than just that sort of band-aid approach. We need a step-by-step process to help us get closer to Jesus.

2. The truth about Celebrate Recovery is that it’s a discipleship process. It helps us get closer to God, closer to Jesus through this step by step guide. For so many of us, it's really hard to take that first step but its such an important part of the journey.

3. The Bible tells us in James 5:16 to confess your sins to one another and pray for each other so that you may be healed. There’s such power in telling someone else what’s going on in your life. If we want to be forgiven, we tell God. If we want to be healed, we tell and pray for each other.

4. No change happens until the pain exceeds our fear of change.

5. Pain gets our attention and it prepares us to help other people who are struggling.

6. If you are going through a hard time, there is a reason for it and Jesus cares about it.

7. We want microwave results but recovery is like a crockpot...it takes time.

8. There’s a desire for us to appear normal. We have it all together, we’re in control. I don’t need recovery, I don’t need therapy. Thank you very much. Leave me alone.  And it’s normal to protect yourself and not talk about things. There’s this idea in recovery that “those poor people who need help, I’m so glad I’m not one of them”. The truth is, we’re all “those people.”

9. We need to do whatever it takes to get healthy because God wants us to live an abundant life.

In this episode I answer these questions:

1. What is your all-time favorite podcast to listen to? (33:50)


2. Is it true that God never gives us more than we can handle? (35:48)

3.  I want to start a side business to bring in income for the family, but I don’t know if I have the personality for it. How do I know if I can make it work? (39:33)

Episode #30- Lysa Terkeurst

Episode #31 with Lysa T.png


I’m with the amazing Lysa TerKeurst today talking about how God sees us and strengthens us even in our darkest days, how the enemy may be vicious but God is victorious, and how to rise strong out of the ashes of a shattered season.


In this episode we discuss:

1. How God takes our pain and uses it for His glory.

2. Why Lysa wrote her new book, It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way

3. The importance of dust to God and the importance of it in our life.

Favorite quotes:

1. I feel like I've been in a season where I have literally licked the floor of hell. But the good news is that I am still standing. I am still believing. I am still trusting that God has and will continue to do good things in the midst of this.

2. I don’t want to minimize the pain because it was very real, very deep and more horrific than what I’ll ever be able to really explain to people. I Definitely will never minimize it because it affected me in the deepest ways possible, but I also don't want to maximize it and make it seem like I cornered the market on pain or anything like that.

3. The enemy is vicious, but he is not victorious in the end because we know the end of the story, the end of God’s story is always good.

4. Dust happens to be God's most favorite ingredient or at least the one of his most favorite. Out of all the things on earth he had access to, and he had access to everything when he chose to make man, He chose the dust of the earth from which to breathe into his new creation of life called human.

5. When we are shattered because of life circumstances, God can take those broken pieces and even if he chooses to let the shattering continue He knows how to do it all just right so that in the end the dust from our shattering experiences can help us be bigger and better and stronger and more beautiful.

In this episode I answer these questions:

1. You finally convinced me to give the enneagram a try. Where do I start? (43:26)

2.  I have a hard time staying focused and consisted in prayer. What do you do? (47:26)

3.  What is the biggest mistake you see when people start their own business? (53:38)
