Tonight on the Write Stuff — Bound by Seduction, Redeemed by Grace with Stacey Louiso

seductionWhat does it mean to be redeemed by grace? In her own words, Stacey Louiso tells her story of her remarkable journey:

Shame. Unbeknownst to me, shame played a huge part in my life. I carried it, internally, from childhood into adulthood. Accompanying shame were some dirty secrets that wreaked havoc on my life, leading me down many wrong paths, until one day I found myself fully broken. Some might perceive this as a bad thing-being broken-however, what transpired in the aftermath sent me down the right path… THE path to: Understanding, deep wisdom and most importantly, breaking free of the harlot spirit that controlled the very fiber of my being since birth. Jesus found me in troubled waters and forgave my transgressions. He healed my soul while breathing new life into this woman-once bound by seduction, now redeemed by Grace!

Relational Reset — The Parker J Cole Show

relationalAre your relationships all that you want them to be?

Do rough patches ever catch you by surprise, causing you to think Why is it so hard right now? Why is there tension? Was it something I did?Despite our best intentions, we all have blind spots—bad relational habits that are keeping us from enjoying our relationships fully. And since relationships stand at the center of all we do, if we can learn to do relationships even fractionally better, every aspect of our lives improves. Whether you struggle to overcome past wounds, insecurity, blame, or envy, it’s time to reflect on your relational habits and reset.

An experienced counselor, Dr. Laurel Shaler is passionate about helping women thrive in all of their relationships. Relational Reset will reveal unhealthy patterns that may be holding you back, give you practical steps for improving your relationships, and help you find your ultimate security and identity in Jesus Christ. When you reset your relationships, you honor God, yourself, and the ones you love.

Laurel_Shaler_proAs a counselor, professor, social worker, speaker, and writer, Dr. Laurel Shaler’s goal is to live out the words of Isaiah 61:1-3…To proclaim good news to the poor, to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, to release prisoners from darkness, to comfort all who mourn, and to bestow joy! Why? Because at the age of 18, Laurel experienced a life changing event when it was discovered that she had a 14 pound ovarian cyst that needed to be removed before it ruptured and killed her. Realizing that we must anchor all our emotions to God, her desire is to help others work through their own challenging experiences and grow in all areas of their lives, including faith.

In order to help others in this way, Laurel earned her Masters in Social Work from Florida State University (and is a Licensed Social Worker) and earned her PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from Regent University (and is a National Certified Counselor). She also holds a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Liberty University. Laurel has provided psychotherapy services to hundreds in need, many of whom were veterans of the United States Armed Forces. She is now an Associate Professor and Program Director at Liberty University. She is a member of numerous counseling and social work organizations, and actively presents and publishes.

In addition to other professional interests, Laurel speaks and writes on the intersection of faith, culture, and emotional well-being. 

Laurel has been published professionally and in the well-known Extraordinary Women, P31 Woman, and Lifeway’s Journey Magazines. In addition to maintaining her own blog, she writes for Patheos, and has written for the American Association of Christian Counselors and “Coffee Break” (out of Thomas Road Baptist Church). She has also been a contributor for Believe.comthe Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission of the Southern Baptist ConventionTo Save a LifeBound4Life, and For Every Mom.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Purposely Unchained with Muriel Gladney

unchained

Purposely Unchained takes the reader on an enthralling roller coaster journey with the author as the Holy Spirit helps her little-faith grow into great-faith. It began with The Call by the Father to start a new life. From there, her life fell into the deepest of valleys of personal trials and demonic challenges. On the final approach back to safety, she was able to clearly see the mountain top of triumph.

Designed for the millions of women who formerly grew up without knowledge of God, and yet now fill the pews of churches around the world, Purposely Unchained humorously and yet biblically addresses the age-old issue of persecution that derails the faith of many Christians.

Purposely Unchained shares a guaranteed battle plan that will strengthen the woman of God in her walk of Faith, while also demonstrating how to gain victory over ungodly strongholds. This book shares a life-assisting plan of action in which the perpetual promise and power of God’s word is demonstrated several failsafe steps. It brings the biblical promise of victory off of the pages of the Bible and into the lives of today’s woman of God to let her know that yes, she can be free.

Tips for Reaching Our Youth — The Parker J Cole Show

Answers in Genesis, a creation science organization, put out a book/report called ‘Already Gone’. The perceived consensus at the time was that children of faith lose their faith when they reach high school or college.

The report showed it was younger than that — approximately by middle school a child begins to lose their faith. Those kinds of fact and statistics are sobering. Perhaps grim.

So how can we reach our children with the message of our faith, questions about God, life, good, evil, pain, suffering, sexuality, and more? How can we get them to talk to us?

Join me as I walk with Victoria Sheffield, director Jerusalem Kidz and host of Kingdom Marriage Show as we discuss the tips to reach our youth.

Why Stay A Christian When God Lets You Down? — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole Banner

**REBROADCAST**

War. Disease. Social unrest. It’s around us every day. Trial and struggle.

From global financial crisis to terrorist acts to disease and natural disasters, we are impacted by trials every day. Some of us, in fact, MOST of us, would say life is hard. Yet, maybe it’s not the major events of the world that affect us but the things in our personal lives which turn our spheres of life upside. Perhaps sickness has struck you or your loved ones. Maybe the company you worked for went under. You’ve lost precious ones in your life. Or, you’re wondering why can’t you get it together and be married and have some form of happily ever after.

Perhaps your struggle goes even deeper. Why did you have to be the one hurt and abused by those you trusted the most? Why can’t you have a child while others do? Why did the thief come and take your personal belongings? Why doesn’t seem as if nothing can go right? Why can’t you find purpose? Why can’t you be mentally balanced like ‘everyone else’?

Shouldn’t God be bigger than this? If God is so powerful, why is this so difficult. Why hold onto the faith when it seems the omnipotent Lord doesn’t do anything to help. Why stay a Christian when God lets you down?

Join me as we delve into a thought, a question, or an argument I’m sure we’ve all had with my guest co-host, Trevor Slone. Perhaps we can help. Listen in at 646-668-8485. Or download Stitcher on your mobile device. Or, click on the link here.
