The Road Home To You

Christmas is a magical time full of sparkle and anticipation. It's easy to get distracted with gifts, carols, food and fun. How can we get quiet enough to really celebrate the birth of Jesus? What does it mean to experience God?

Every journey requires a rest stop. Let's stop here and take in some Psalms. Hear what the psalmist says about Jesus. Rest confidently in the promise that the Lord is your stronghold, even in times of trouble. Give thanks to the Lord today, with all your heart.

It's easy to be thankful when everyone you love is gathered around a Pinterest perfect table, the turkey is golden and a light snow is accumulating outside. But what about when life isn't so perfect?

Recovery and restoration aren't just for addicts and those who live with them. As it happens, we all live in a broken world where we rub elbows with broken people every day, which means we all have some hurts that need healing.

Join Brandy this week as she interviews her recovery mentor, Dr. Kathy Rodriguez, retired psychologist and author who continues to lead women into health and recovery. 

Our conversation begins with a look at The Genesis Process

Michael Dye, founder of The Genesis Process says in the introduction of Book 1:
"The Genesis Process is an attempt to provide the necessary understanding, as well as the practical tools, for real and permanent change. It is a blend of biblical principles, understanding of the brain, and proven recovery strategies for not only freedom from self-destructive behaviors, but also addressing the underlying issues that drive them."

Discover our own thoughts and experiences with Genesis as a means of discipleship and spiritual growth, a process that never ends as God continues to reveal His ability to sanctify and renew us. 

As a woman who married outside her race, then adopted African American children, Kathy also shares some of the issues that she and her husband have faced over the years. 

This leads us right back to the goal of restoration and recovery, as we as individuals in a divided society work towards finding a way forward. 

Kathy and I found several more subjects we'd like to delve into in the future and I look forward to sitting down with her again and hearing from her wise and compassionate heart.

Healing the Father Wound

Surviving the Secret
