Ep. 325 - After Dealing With Paralyzing Anxiety Pastor J.D. Peabody Teaches Others to Find Freedom

January 9, 2023 • Tina Griffin

At the end of his ropes, J.D. Peabody was taking a walk with his friend when he commented that he wasn’t an anxious person. His friend’s response was telling - he laughed - and J.D. realized that he was not who he thought he was! J.D. is the pastor of New Day Church and the author of the profound book, Perfectly Suited - The Armor of God for the Anxious Mind. J.D. explains how Christians tend to misunderstand their anxious thoughts, and why it’s important to find community and support when fear begins to take a foothold. Anxiety, he explains, is the secondary way of feeling things that are really about something else. J.D. also shares insight into how he turned his mental meltdown into the inspiration for a fantastic Biblically-based book to help people overcome their anxiety.



TAKEAWAYS


Peace is one of God’s greatest gifts to us 


If you are anxious, recognize that you are NOT alone


Don’t isolate yourself when you’re dealing with anxiety - reach out to the people around you and find help 


Even if someone’s life looks perfect from the outside, realize that they are most likely struggling with something too

February 21, 2024 • Tina Griffin

Dr. David Hawkins talks about the common signs and behaviors associated with narcissism and emotional abuse. As the owner and clinical director of the Marriage Recovery Center and the Emotional Abuse Institute, he is an expert on counseling couples who are struggling through the thick of narcissistic behavior from at least one partner. Dr. Hawkins describes the five key behaviors of abuse: an attitude of arrogance, a lack of empathy, an attitude of self-protection, profound emotional immaturity, and a lack of dedication to make a change. He further explains that around 10 percent of the narcissist population are women and breaks down what reactive abuse can look like.

Ep. 558 - Top Narcissist Behaviors Include Dominating, Dismissing and Deflecting - Dr. David Hawkins

February 20, 2024 • Tina Griffin

Most traditional marriage counselors will tell you that marriage is a two-way street, but Dr. David Hawkins disagrees. He says that this is “woefully inadequate for most problems” and confirms that many men struggle with dominating, dismissing, and deflecting their wives in their relationships. Dr. Hawkins is the owner and clinical director of the Marriage Recovery Center and the Emotional Abuse Institute. He’s also a bestselling author and the host of the “Mad In Love” podcast. Dr. Hawkins discusses the “maze of confusion” that emotional abusers and narcissists can weave and how women are most often - although not always - victimized by it. Dr. Hawkins also explains what emotional abuse is, what it does to a victim, and the key factor to escaping the trauma: intervention! TAKEAWAYS The past is the best predictor of the future unless there’s an intervention A person is not born a narcissist, but rather, it is learned behavior Narcissism can also be defined as “extreme emotional immaturity” Ongoing emotional abuse can result in PTSD or CPTSD in the victim 🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE Donate to Counter Culture Ministries: https://bit.ly/3wganmo When Loving Him is Hurting You book: https://amzn.to/42mbtn5 The Core Program for Men: https://bit.ly/48rc1au 🔗 CONNECT WITH MARRIAGE RECOVERY CENTER Website: https://marriagerecoverycenter.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/marriagerecoverycenter/http://www.facebook.com/marriagerecoverycenter Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/marriagerecoverycenter/http://www.instagram.com/marriagerecoverycenter YouTube: https://bit.ly/3ofufqo Podcast: https://marriagerecoverycenter.com/podcast/ 📢 THIS EPISODE SPONSORED BY Patriot Mobile (use code TINA for free activation): https://www.patriotmobile.com/ccmom/http://www.patriotmobile.com/ccmom RogersHood Apothecary (get 10% off with code TINA):  https://www.rogershood.com/?coupon=tinahttp://www.rogershood.com/?coupon=tina Jase Medical (get a discount with code TINA): https://bit.ly/jaseccm Capstone Legacy: https://capstonelegacy.org/ 🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM  https://linktr.ee/counterculturemom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/fpmccmshow 📲 GET OUR APP & FREE PARENT MEDIA GUIDE http://bit.ly/landingpageccm 💵 SUPPORT THE MISSION 2023 Recap & 2024 Goals: https://bit.ly/ccm23impactreport Make a Tax-Deductible Donation: https://counterculturemom.com/partner

Ep. 557 - Red Flags and Malicious Behaviors of a Narcissist and Protection Strategies - Mary Heiser

February 19, 2024 • Tina Griffin

Mary Heiser was married for over 30 years to a man who displayed many behaviors consistent with someone who is a “malignant narcissist.” She returned home one day after serving for Operation Christmas Child, and discovered her husband was gone. He had taken all his personal items, her personal treasures, important documents, and financial records. Mary began to realize she had been mentally, emotionally, and financially abused and controlled for most of the marriage and then discarded. She describes five malicious behaviors that can help others identify if they are living with or dealing with a narcissist and how to recognize the “red flags.” Several strategies to protect themselves, including keeping a close eye on all financial issues and accounts are also discussed. TAKEAWAYS Spiritual warfare in the home is a clear and evident facet in these types of relationships as narcissism is mostly about self glorification You can expect to be devalued, blamed, lied to and instilled with fear, so it’s imperative you have a solid relationship with the Lord One of Mary’s favorite words is “thrival” - a combination of survival and thriving - finding herself again after decades of narcissistic abuse Forgiveness is possible and necessary for “thrival” to happen but cannot be done without strength that only Jesus Christ can provide 🛠 TOOLS AND RESOURCES FROM EPISODE Donate to Counter Culture Ministries: https://bit.ly/3wganmo Mary Heiser’s Email: mailto:marycheiser@gmail.com 📢 THIS EPISODE SPONSORED BY RogersHood Apothecary (get 10% off with code TINA):  https://www.rogershood.com/?coupon=tinahttp://www.rogershood.com/?coupon=tina Jase Medical (get a discount with code TINA): https://bit.ly/jaseccm Capstone Legacy: https://capstonelegacy.org/ TruPlay (get 30% off with code Tina30): https://truplay.games/counterculturemom 🔗 CONNECT WITH COUNTER CULTURE MOM  https://linktr.ee/counterculturemom 📺 WATCH OUR PREVIOUS SHOWS https://bit.ly/fpmccmshow 📲 GET OUR APP & FREE PARENT MEDIA GUIDE http://bit.ly/landingpageccm 💵 SUPPORT THE MISSION 2023 Recap & 2024 Goals: https://bit.ly/ccm23impactreport Make a Tax-Deductible Donation: https://counterculturemom.com/partner
