    175. Sowing and Reaping For Mental Health

    How do we grow good fruit, healthy emotions and mental health in our life? Conversations have been coming up in my sessions and I think I want to share it here. We hear about spending time with God and the need for this, but isn’t it hard to do? I feel like we can get caught in the wheel of our busy lives and much of this busy is good stuff. So we are doing good things but not taking the time to spend with God. There is a lot in the gospel about Matthew with seeds and the connection with our mental health. Praying for your soul to be blessed from this episode! “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” ~Matthew 6:6 NIV “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”” Psalms 91:1-2 NKJV Find more about Heidi: www.heidimortensonlmft.com Purchase the book The Brave Encourager: https://www.amazon.com/Brave-Encourager-Power-Encouragement-Changes/dp/B09TN45H36/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3HGP5FPY2E5GD&keywords=the+brave+encourager&qid=1646608516&sprefix=the+brave+encourager%2Caps%2C223&sr=8-1 Join my mailing list: https://landing.mailerlite.com/webforms/landing/t5u2y5 If you are in crisis, help is available by call or text 1-800-273-8255 24/7.

    176. Practical Ways to Hear God’s Voice with Sterling Harris

    Do you want to hear the voice of God? Do you need practical ways to know how to engage with Jesus daily? Sterling is a formal NFL player and former federal prisoner. He fought anxiety and depression for a long time and listened to the wrong voices. Sterling “tried it all” by being religious, being worldly, partying, drinking, putting himself in business, being a workaholic, motivational speaker, serving God and being philanthropic. Religion, successful or church attendance cannot fill the void in your heart that a daily relationship with Jesus can do. We can’t live off of yesterday’s encounter and yesterday’s time with Jesus. We need to be connected to God on a daily basis. The all day every day connection with God is not just for the super spiritual, it’s for all of us. Hearing God is simple and we have made it complicated. Listen to this very practical and real conversation that will invite you into a intimate daily walk with your Jesus. “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” ~John 10:27 “For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.” ~John 12:49 Sterling’s website: www.sterlingharris.org To purchase Sterling’s book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0876ZLBM2/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=&sr= Find more about Heidi: www.heidimortensonlmft.com If you are in crisis, help is available by call or text 1-800-273-8255 24/7.

    175. Declarations of Truth over our Mental Health

    Do you feel weary lately? Insecure or not yourself? I have felt “off” and it feels real. In this episode, you will be encouraged by declarations of truth. Sometimes we need a rejuvenation in the spirit, a Holy Spirit dousing of His love and affection. We aren’t meant to live in the lack, but confidently walking in Christ, no matter our circumstances or environment. Rest and receive as these powerful words of hope are spoken over you. “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”. ~John 10:10 To sign up for the Daring Greatly™ Group: https://www.heidimortensonlmft.com/groups Find more about Heidi: www.heidimortensonlmft.com Purchase the book The Brave Encourager: https://www.amazon.com/Brave-Encourager-Power-Encouragement-Changes/dp/B09TN45H36/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3HGP5FPY2E5GD&keywords=the+brave+encourager&qid=1646608516&sprefix=the+brave+encourager%2Caps%2C223&sr=8-1 Join my mailing list: https://landing.mailerlite.com/webforms/landing/t5u2y5 If you are in crisis, help is available by call or text 1-800-273-8255 24/7.

    174. Gender Distress – A Practical Response with Pamela Garfield-Jaeger, LCSW, MS

    In this opinionated and divided world, it can be hard to know how to response to the transgender issues in a Godly and honoring way. How do we continue to love those and walk in the healthy choice? Known as “The Truthful Therapist”, Pamela is a licensed social worker who has experience on both sides of opinions with transgender issues. She calls the current transgender craze we are in as the “modern day lobotomy”. She sees the pain that families experience as well as the doctors and therapists involved. She has spent a lot of time with those who have painfully de-transitioned and are getting little help and public attention. Her book, “A Practical Response to Gender to Distress”, is a very easy and helpful tool to be able to confidently walk through the gender issues with kindness, love and truth. As a Jewish woman herself, she knows what it is like to be discriminated against but she honors those with different faith. She walks through this difficult topic with humor, confidence and most importantly, love.

    173. Power of Prayer

    Do you something wonder if your prayers are working? Have you been feeling the need to pray more? I think we can forget the power of prayer and get lost in our daily shuffle too often. I personally have struggled with prayer and haven’t felt like I was “good” at prayer. Have you? Did you know there is not wrong way to pray? Honestly prayer is like talking and being yourself. In this episode, you will be inspired by transformation from the power of prayer to ignite the power of prayer for your life. When we don’t pray, nothing happens. So why not pray? Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. ~1 Thessalonians 5:18 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. ~Matthew 7:7 Find more about Heidi: www.heidimortensonlmft.com Purchase the book The Brave Encourager: https://www.amazon.com/Brave-Encourager-Power-Encouragement-Changes/dp/B09TN45H36/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3HGP5FPY2E5GD&keywords=the+brave+encourager&qid=1646608516&sprefix=the+brave+encourager%2Caps%2C223&sr=8-1 Join my mailing list: https://landing.mailerlite.com/webforms/landing/t5u2y5 If you are in crisis, help is available by call or text 1-800-273-8255 24/7.
