The harder life is, the more important it is for you to have the ability to manage your emotional state, the ability to decide how you're going to experience life even in the midst of challenges.”

When you’re experiencing stress, fear, anxiety, overwhelm, depression, or any other challenging emotional state, how can you regain control of the way you feel?  

Today was supposed to be another “Ask Me Anything” episode, where I answer listener questions. However, as I began to address the first question: What do you believe about Jesus, God, and the Bible, I found myself thinking about the difficult situations and resulting emotions that many people are facing right now. 

If you’ve experienced emotional distress, are concerned with the future, or are afraid of the unknown, today’s episode will provide you with some practical advice you can use to rise above your challenges and take control of your emotional state.


  • Why I don’t identify with any political party or religious sect—and how to find your own truth.
  • How we create layers of protection, to protect our psyche, over the course of our lives.
  • Why it’s so important to get back in touch with who you really are. 
  • How inner freedom gives you the power to choose how to experience life in any given moment.
  • What to do when your emotional state isn’t serving you—and how to double down on taking control of your emotions during challenging times.
