Dr. John Deloney - Calming anxiety
Anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults and are the most common mental diagnosis in America. Dr. John Delony, best-selling author, mental health expert, host of "The Dr. John Delony show", joins Robert and Kim to talk about how to calm anxiety. He has two doctorate degrees and over two decades of experience in counseling, crisis response and higher education. He is also part of the Dave Ramsey team of personalities. 

Dr. Delony shares that, "At its core, anxiety is our body telling us we are out of step relationally, that we are in a situation that isn't safe, or that, as we look into the future, we cannot control what is coming next. It's not a sign that we're broken or that our brains are malfunctioning. It's the other way around. It's telling us that our brain is working great. It's designed to tell us we are under a threat and we need to look at our entire universe to find out what is going on." He also shares that cognitive dissonance is when we have two different competing thoughts or emotions at once. We might be reading scripture that tells us we are loved and accepted as we are while those around us are sending a different message. It can lead us to shut down. If you are experiencing cognitive dissonance, your body might sound an alarm. If we are surrounded by loving people but feel lonely inside, we may experience that dissonance and our brains will alert us. Anxiety can be the result of experiencing that difference. 

Many single parents experience chronic anxiety, so what is anxiety and how do we calm it?

Best way to start my week!

I love this podcast and this ministry. My favorite part is waiting to hear what outrageous example Robert Beeson uses as a reason to bring up the show notes.

First episode enough for me

It's sure hard to be a single father of two where my kids mom is the one who doesn't want her kids. I put this podcast on hoping to get tips and tricks and maybe some understanding. But instead I hear how the mom is always the hero and has the special relationship with her child and that the dad doesn't need to see his child because it would mess up the kids life having two rooms and two homes. What a biased messed up view to put out in the world. I tell my kids that they can see their mom whenever they like and to love both the parents. I would warn any single parent to not listen to this podcast
