Description

If God is interacting with you, would you notice? Can you learn to recognize and respond to God in your story — in your everyday, ordinary life? Let’s find out from other people who are curious like you! We’ll hear from people who have recognized what God is up to in the midst of the mundane, joyful, painful and profound moments of life, and sensed God with them, in them, and for them. Some found encouragement, healing, hope, redemption, restoration, new perspectives or direction at life’s crossroads — sometimes in surprising ways.


Listen as podcast Host Sharon Swing and Co-Hosts Joan Kelley, Sibyl Towner and Lori Shoults interview people who have reviewed their life story using ‘Listen to My Life' maps. We’ll talk with authors, pastors, artists or anyone with an interesting story about God’s small voice stirring their souls. To find out more about the ‘Listen to My Life’ maps or submit your story for a potential future episode, go to www.onelifemaps.com/podcast to learn more.

I love Steve Carter. He's a great conversationalist and a good human being. Listen in as Steve and I (Sharon Swing) talk about spiritual formation and life story. He gave plenty of sermons that included encouraging people to dive into their own life stories while he was preaching at Willow Creek Community Church while I was there. I cheered him on from the cheap seats. Life took quite a turn for Steve and his family a few years back that left him searching for next steps in immediate fashion. He heard the Spirit whisper to his soul, 'Go to the desert and wait for instruction.' Little did he know his wife had been longing for a nudge in that direction.Steve is now an itinerate teacher at many churches -- sometimes multiple churches on a weekend now that church is virtual. He equips teaching pastors from around the globe.Find out more about Steve Carter at: https://www.stevecarter.org and listen to his new podcast, https://www.hometeampodcast.com.oneLife Maps is, at its core, interested in helping people to recognize and respond to God in their stories.

Are you responsible TO others or responsible FOR them? It's a very useful distinction for all of our relationships. It may keep you out of trouble, improve your relationships, and put words to why having kids grow up messes with us as parents! We have used this important piece of work from the book, 'Listen For Heaven's Sake' in many of our 'Listen to My Life' workshops as we teach listening skills and explore why some of our relationships need a tune up, and help us name why we take more on than we need to, or get frustrated when others seem to want to control us.We highly recommend this important infographic.

I love this conversation with Ashlee Eiland. I love Ashlee. You will, too.Please listen to a piece of her story here, and then also read her book, "Human(Kind): How Reclaiming Human Worth and Embracing Radical Kindness Will Bring Us Back Together." Her memoir in short essays recounts events in her life that shaped her view of herself, of God and the world around her. Finding yourself in the midst of so many conflicting messages can be a difficult task, especially when so many people have opinions and assumptions about how you 'should be.' Please read this book and see your own story intermingled with hers. It's an invitation to sort out what to take with you and what to leave behind from your own story, and to find human kindness as the antidote to so much of what ails us personally, and as a society.Please read this book, and pass it on to your family and friends. It is available from Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Human-Kind-Reclaiming-Embracing-Kindness-ebook/dp/B07TZCJS7W/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=human+%28kind%29&qid=1590163102&sr=8-1(This podcast was recorded prior to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the subsequent protests. Therefore, there are no mentions of this event in our conversation.)Ashlee Eiland serves as the formation and preaching pastor at Mars Hill Bible Church. She shares God's message of redemption and reconciliation at conferences, colleges, and events around the country. Ashlee earned a BA in international relations from the University of Southern California and completed her master's in organizational leadership at Judson University. She blogs regularly and has contributed articles to Relevant magazine. Ashlee and her husband, Delwin, have three children and live in Grand Rapids.oneLife Maps is, at its core, interested in helping people to recognize and respond to God in their stories.

Adele Calhoun joins Sharon Swing for a conversation about Adele's book, 'Invitations from God.'Here's a description of her book:Some invitations we desperately want: "Will you marry me?" "Would you consider a promotion?" Other invitations we never want to receive but must respond to all the same: "What treatment do you want for your tumor?" Invitations pound away at the coastlines of the soul with a transforming force. God is also sending invitations. Sometimes they seem less compelling than anything on my to-do list. Why would I want to say yes to the invitation to rest when I'm already so far behind? Why follow when I could lead? Why accept invitations to weep or to admit I am wrong or to wait? Saying yes might slow me down, sabotage my agenda and even undo who I think I am. Adele Calhoun, author of the popular Spiritual Disciplines Handbook, offers a book about invitations like these―divine invitations we miss or ignore because we've said yes to going with the cultural flow. While these invitations from God can sometimes be difficult to accept, they can heal and restore even as they shape where we go, what we do and who we become. What we say yes to, what we say no to forms the terrain of our future. Included in this book are reflection questions and exercises as well as overview charts with recommended disciplines to guide you through each theme. As you attend to the often hidden, quiet voice of the Great Inviter, you will find yourself as God created you to be.oneLife Maps is, at its core, interested in helping people to recognize and respond to God in their stories.

My story, (Sharon Swing) has been blessed by effective leaders and harmed by unhealthy leaders. All of our stories contain chapters where people have influenced us in ways that shape us. Sometimes we have a choice over who leads us, and sometimes we have not had not. Leaders have a way of intentionally or unintentionally influencing our behavior, our perceptions of ourselves, of how the world works and sometimes even our perception of who God is. Leaders have sway over who is 'in' and who is 'out.' I think it is a good exercise to consider who the leaders have been in our lives and their effects on us. It helps us sort our our life story -- what to take with us and what to leave behind.I have encountered narcissistic leaders. I have served on staff under a narcissist, I have consulted with companies who have leaders who could be described in this way. I have confronted several narcissists, and I have been shamed publicly by one in particularly hurtful ways. I have studied the effects narcissists have on organizations. I have witnessed the effects of the skewed perspective people have of what 'strong' leadership looks like as they attempt to mirror their senior leader who is a narcissist. I have witnessed situations in organizations where the definition of who is a leader and who is not is a leader is measured by their likeness to the style of the unhealthy narcissist. My hope is that we can open our eyes to identify narcissistic leaders and also identify the ways in which we can be unintentionally drawn toward them.My prayer with this episode of the oneLife Maps Podcast is to have a conversation that might lead to hope and healing. Maybe you need to hear that you are not crazy. You are not alone. It's time to lay down whatever shame you picked up in the midst of your experiences with narcissistic leaders who may have, or are having some control over you and your perception of who you are.As Chuck DeGroat says in this episode, "A narcissist's perception of you is ALWAYS less than God's vision for you."Please leave comments and questions for us on this episode. We can start a conversation on our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/onelifemaps/ or search for us @onelifemaps on Facebook, and Twitter.This week's episode is a conversation with Chuck DeGroat, author of "When Narcissism Comes to Church: Healing Your Community From Emotional and Spiritual Abuse."Why does narcissism seem to thrive in our churches? We've seen the news stories and heard the rumors. Maybe we ourselves have been hurt by a narcissistic church leader. It's easy to throw the term around and diagnose others from afar. But what is narcissism, really? And how does it infiltrate the church? Chuck DeGroat has been counseling pastors with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, as well as those wounded by narcissistic leaders and systems, for over twenty years. He knows firsthand the devastation narcissism leaves in its wake and how insidious and painful it is. In When Narcissism Comes to Church, DeGroat takes a close look at narcissism, not only in ministry leaders but also in church systems. He offers compassion and hope for those affected by its destructive power and imparts wise counsel for churches looking to heal from its systemic effects. DeGroat also offers hope for narcissists themselves―not by any shortcut, but by the long, slow road of genuine recovery, possible only through repentance and trust in the humble gospel of Jesus.Connect with Chuck DeGroat at https://chuckdegroat.netYou can purchase the book thru Amazon at this link: https://www.amazon.com/When-Narcissism-Comes-Church-Community/dp/0830841598/ref=sr_1_1?crid=BX3J4CT423CJ&dchild=1&keywords=when+narcissism+comes+to+church&qid=1584034984&sprefix=when+nar%2Caps%2C161&sr=8-1•••••••••••••••oneLife Maps is, at its core, interested in helping people to recognize and respond to God in their stories.
