How to Stop Giving Away Our Peace

How to Stop Giving Away Our Peace
As single parents, we tend to let our peace be drained out of us by other people, lies, society, and comparison, and we end up feeling disempowered or victims. So often, we let unsafe people have access to our identity, self-worth, self-esteem and how we feel about ourselves... in that sense, we are leaking our sense of peace everywhere. So how do we get to a healthy place of protecting the peace that we can experience in being enough, God empowered, and beloved? How can we move forward empowered with a sense of our God identity and have peace with where we're at.

Creating peace in volatile parenting relationships with Tammy Daughtry

Creating peace in volatile parenting relationships with Tammy Daughtry
As single parents, we all have direct and extended parenting relationships and will for the rest of our kid's lives. Often those relationships are strained and even volatile. For example, things can escalate very quickly if we're divorced and it's an ongoing contentious situation. Then there are the ex-in-laws that have very strong opinions about how their grandkids should be raised and can tend, at times, to overreach. Finally, for those that haven't been married, there's the other parent that has certain rights to be in our child's lives, but from our perspective, it is less than optimal for our kids. In all these cases, how do we bring peace to the situation? We know nothing will ever be perfect, but how can we be the ones to bring peace and the stability that it fosters?

Today we have Tammy Daughtry back in the studio with us. She is a leading expert in co-parenting issues and author of the book "Co-parenting works", she is also the creator of an outstanding program "One heart, Two homes," and she and her husband Jay run a great organization called Center for Modern Family Dynamics here in Nashville. Also, both she and her husband were single parents before meeting each other - so they know firsthand what we walkthrough.

How to Keep Control From Destroying Your Peace

6/6/2022 00:36:17
How to Keep Control From Destroying Your Peace
As single parents, there are so many aspects of our life that are entirely out of control. In fact, for those of us that have been divorced, divorce in and of itself is a way of taking control of the situation/relationship that was toxic or out of control. We choose control to escape uncertainty, defend against pain, and keep ourselves from feeling afraid. We see control as a way to bring peace, but it actually leads us in the opposite direction. Control is a counterfeit to peace; control actually destroys peace. When we are in the midst of pain or struggle, we don't want to wait for it to subside; we want to get to the other side of that pain and struggle. We tend to want to take the reins of control and get out of discomfort as fast as possible to have a sense of peace finally. If only I could find a mate... If only I had more money... If only my kids would stop acting out... That's all a natural reaction. But that control never brings lasting peace. That kind of control is an illusion of peace. So how do we let go of the illusion of control when it feels so counterintuitive while we are hurting, confused and disillusioned.

The Growth Tool You're Not Considering: Celebration w Nicole Zasowski
Single Parents, we have experienced so much hurt and disappointment, and the list goes on, that we can be too afraid to hope. We want to grow in this season, but often it feels like the best days are behind us. Rarely do we think of celebration as a means to grow... because frankly, it feels like there is so little to celebrate... and day in day out, the best we can do is just to get by... So how can we approach life with an expectant heart and courage to trust God's good gifts again?  

Our guest, Nicole Zasowski is a licensed marriage and family therapist and the author of a new book called What if It's Wonderful. Today, we discuss The Growth Tool You're Not Considering: Celebration

Unleash your Spiritual Growth with KRISTI MCLELLAND

Unleash your Spiritual Growth with KRISTI MCLELLAND
For many of us single parents, the solo season can be like a season in the wilderness. Feeling like we've lost our way, we've lost our direction. And from day to day, feeling unseen and like there's a little hope. We also know and have seen as a ministry that this can be one of the most transformational times for us spiritually. But it's hard to ignore the feeling that so many of us have of just being stuck in so many ways, including spiritually.
So how do we move from just walking day-to-day through this wilderness to unleashing the most important, transformational spiritual growth that we have encountered in our life. Because that is precisely what can happen, God changes us in struggle.
Today we have a special guest, Kristi Mclelland, a professor, a biblical culturalist, an author, and now a host of an incredible podcast here on AccessMore called Pearls. She has a Master's Degree in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary and has dedicated her life to teaching people how to study the Bible. So, we are excited to get into this conversation about unleashing your spiritual growth.
