The Truth and Our Trauma

You don't have what it takes. You're not good enough. It's always going to be this way. We've heard what trauma has to say– now it's time for the Truth. Trauma inflicts a wound that allows shame to infect the soul. At its core, shame lies to us about who we are and Whose we are – it tells us we are unloved and on our own. And I don’t know about you, but I’m SO tired of listening to all of that. The Truth & Our Trauma is a podcast dedicated to discovering how sacred reconnection breaks the bondages of trauma & shame. We explore ways to practically encounter the Spirit of Truth on the journey to healing, and discuss how to live from our truest identities as daughters & sons of the Living God.
