Young Adulthood and Chronic Illness

29:55 – 

Diabetes, Lyme Disease, asthma, cancer, a whole host of autoimmune disorders and more — it seems like all of us struggle or know someone who struggles with a chronic disease. Coming to terms with the effects and implications of long-term illness can be hard, particularly for young adults. Our panel gives encouragement and strategies for coping with a diagnosis, living with the effects of chronic illness, and how God uses physical limitations to show himself in the midst of our weakness.

Control Yourself

Guests: Drew Dyck,

23:16 – 

Are you a master of self-control? Yeah, very few of us are. Like Homer Simpson drooling over donuts (and then gobbling them up), some habits and patterns are so ingrained and controlling, it’s tough to want to quit them. Author Drew Dyck is right there with us. But self-control is biblical; it’s a fruit of the Spirit. What’s more, he says, having self-control today contributes to success tomorrow. If like the rest of us you need help breaking some nasty habits and putting good practices in their place, this conversation is for you. Drew’s book “Your Future Self Will Thank You” is for who he calls the “quitters, sinners and procrastinators.” Depending on the issue, that’s probably most of us.

Guests: Jenny Coffey,

4:26 –

Counselor Jenny Coffey has some advice on how our listener can break free from the past and learn to use the “L” word the right way at the right time.
