SORT BY Relevancy
So many people are hurting. Slow down enough to take a look around you, so many hearts are aching. People are in pain, physically emotionally, mentally, financially and on the edge of despair. One day there is a suicide, the next a killing. Many are being laid off compromising mortgages, education, and health to say the least.
But if it's ok? Have we ever thought that whatever we are going through has a purpose beyond what we presently see? Can we imagine that whatever it is that we are going through right now, is for a reason, maybe even for our good?
If you are willing to look at your current situation differently listen to this show as we discuss what it means to suffer for Christ sake?
What will be your testimony
It makes us partners with Christ in suffering. Don’t be bewildered or surprised when you go through the fiery trials ahead. Instead, be really glad –because these trials will make you partners with Christ in his suffering. (1 Peter 4:12-13) 12-Dear friends do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. 13-But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 1 Pet. 3.14...14 But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.
We all will suffer in Christ Jesus, but what is it producing in your life
Suffering is a means of learning. Jesus tells us, wear my yoke—for it fits perfectly—and let me teach you; for I am gentle and humble, and you shall find rest for your souls; for I give you only light burdens. (Mathew 11:29-30) We are to take Jesus and follow His ways. Give everything to Him. Why because He cares for us. But what is He trying to produce in you.
How is your testimony going to be?
Are you ready to suffer lost of life for Christ for righteousness. Mat. 10.39...If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it. Will you lay down your life for righteousness sake. When we look around we see America is like it is because we haven't stood for righteousness, for Christ. But it's not to late. When we put down our agenda and pick up Christ's we will see a change. 2 Cor. 12.10 says.. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships. It's time to gird up and stand for Christ.
Negative emotions spill over to relationships with children. Anger in one relationship will be a stimulus for anger and irritability in other close relationships. When parents argue with each other, they are more likely to become angry, irritating or controlling toward their children.
By paying close attention to their parents’ conflict, a son or daughter becomes more sensitive to their parents poor communication techniques toward him or her during disagreements. Teens’ perception of parental unfairness in discipline or logic compounds their anger and frustration when they feel frustrated in not getting their way or feel otherwise mistreated. Teens feel less secure and more anxious when they are aware that their parents aren’t getting along. They fear that one parent will leave the family to avoid the repetitive arguments. They also think friction with their parents is more personally threatening when they see their parents constantly fighting.
High family conflict produces low self-esteem, worries about an uncertain future and poorer coping with stress. Chronic strife increases frustration, anxiety and depression. They may avoid being home, spend more time with their friends or even try using alcohol or drugs to keep from thinking about their quarreling parents. School performance also suffers. Children from high conflict homes have a harder time learning to control their emotions. They are more prone to anger and violence. They may use a high conflict style to resolve problems with their peers, siblings or later in life when they become parents themselves.
Family dynamics become really confused when parents seek allies among their children in the marital disputes.

If you have been lost, hang in there as Lisa explains the purpose of pain and how we can learn to appreciate duality in our lives.

There can be no experience of contentment without some experience of discontentment. It is our hope that by listening to this recording as well as many of Lisa's others, that your ideas about self, your past, healing, and about recovery will help you reframe your perceptions about pain for the purpose of healing completely.
1 Thessalonians 5:5
You know there’s a lot of talk in new age spiritual circles about “the light” and being “light workers” but this is actually a term and a concept stolen from the Bible.
In our focus scripture for today’s message Paul tells us we are all children of the light and then Jesus tells us that we are the light of the world!
Now Jesus refers to believers as both salt and light and both need to be applied, but when salt’s applied, it goes inward and disappears, whereas light comes from within and always appears.
The salt speaks of our character whereas light speaks of our testimony.
And what the world needs is both penetration and illumination, both character and confession.
Look at these utterly profound words from the lips of Jesus.
See Matthew 5:14-16 KJV
 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
So stay tuned because in today’s message we’ll learn the who, what and “hows” of being spiritual light AKA "Children of The Light"!
As adult children of alcoholics, many of us do not even realize just how wounded we truly are. Because we have ridiculously high threhholds for pain, we do not always consciously comprehend how dank our energy bodies are. Many of us have been living in such deep states of survival for so long, we are unaware our emotional set point is one that has us unknowingly avoiding pain rather than seeking joy in our lives. Because so many of us were taught that our needs were unimportant, we no longer seek guidance from within, and so we wind up settling for what shows up.
The most sad aspect of our realities is the fact that we are creators and capable of transcending ANY experience. But for adult children of alcoholics--if we do not even know where our pain is--or where our wounds are--we often times miss the transcendental experience embracing the pain can create. Embracing the pain is an opportunity to create new realities and to live life in new vibrations, literally embracing the opportunity to experience a New Earth in a whole new way.
Adult children of alcoholics come from long lines of dank energy beings, and because our families have been drenched in denial, it can be quite a wobbly experience as one approaches a true healing journey. In this episode we will be discussing the Hero's Path of An Adult Child of an Alcoholic and or Narcissist, and how we can use our experiences to propel us to higher vibrations, so to experience the world in a whole New Way as higher energy beings, living our lives intentionally on a Quantum Level, for the purpose of living our Higher Self Realities through the process of transcendence.
Court testimony from an “expert” hired by the Los Angeles School District, argued that a 9-year-old who was sexually assaulted at school didn’t experience any trauma from the event because she had a low IQ. Really! Does anyone really believe that? Well, apparently some do. What other misconceptions exist that minimize the damage done by trauma to people who are different from our ideal? Can you imagine being a little girl who endured a horrible assault and then being told and treated as if it were no big deal?
Well, we’re going to explore that topic and more with Brian D. Tallant, L.P.C., N.C.C. Brian is a Program Director at Aurora Mental Health in Colorado and manages Intercept Center; a mental health outpatient and day treatment program for children who have a dual diagnosis of developmental disability and co-occurring mental health disorders. He works with a number of disabled children who have experienced trauma of all sorts.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to learn more about childhood trauma and disabled children, and find out if the “expert” from the school district in LA is right or wrong as can be.

Special Saturday Episode of LargeInCharge Radio
Our Children - Are we Influencing them Correctly?
When you’re raising kids it is not a complete science, we are all kinda bumping around trying to figure it out.
Tonight we are going to talk about some debatable thoughts on how we Influence our Kids.
From the way they we speak, the way we dress, the way we reward them with smiles and laughs. We are teaching our children what type of behavior is acceptable or not. What is expected of them, and what behavior is considered good or bad. We reward them with our attention, are you paying attention to the message you send?
Bring your views, thoughts, and examples of what you feel is acceptable or not.
