We live in a world that's all about awareness. It seems we're told that if only we could learn more about the plight of every person, disease, race, orientation, or catastrophe, the world would be a better place. But does knowledge alone fix anything? The goal for awareness should be to move people towards true action. But what does action beyond awareness look like? We also caution that when awareness is done really wrong, it simply leads to harm and division.
This conversation is, ironically, about raising "awareness" about the possible pitfalls of awareness done wrong. Our hope is to also lay some groundwork for going beyond just "awareness" to true action about the things you are passionate about.

This is the first episode that Rita and Cecily sat down to record together in 2022. Because of that, we talk about why we started the podcast, and what our goals for the podcast are this year. Our goals have nothing to do with metrics, and everything to do with values, faithfulness, our approach to life and our prayer for our listeners.

This Interview with Tommy John is a must-listen. There is so much to learn from his anything-but-mainstream way of thinking about the miraculous nature of the body and healing.
Tommy gives us the details on burning his degrees, insight into what he means by “you heal you”, a run through the “8 essentials” and just some really good thought provoking conversation.

Today we're saying goodbye to 2021 with a simple episode. The foundation of our podcast is values and truth. Our values come from the truth, which comes from Jesus Christ.
We go through the Christmas story and the gospel today. We marvel at the truth of what Christ has done for us, and the hope that He offers. No matter how dark the world may be, the light of Christ has already won.
Thanks for being with us this year. We can't wait to come back in 2022!

In today's episode, we talk about the realities of what a broken healthcare system looks like, and the effect it has on the people that rely on it. We compare and contrast the experiences in the US and Canada, and discuss the spectrum of care, from home and community care to the ICU.
We also touch on the fragility of humans, and how much of that can be traced back to the broken education system. We talk about the rising rates of depression, anxiety and suicide and the need for a better way.
We wrap it up by talking about our role within our government systems, elections, and Yellowstone. Yes, the show Yellowstone.

Do you ever have it where you and a friend start talking about one thing, and then before you know it you're talking about a whole bunch of things?
That's what happened on today's recording. We went in with a clear mission and it evolved as the episode progressed.
Today we discussed responsibility - namely the fact that what happens in our lives is ultimately our responsibility. Raising our kids is our responsibility as parents. Protecting them is our responsibility. Shaping them, training them, loving them... it's on us.
We live in a time where more and more power is being given to institutions, governments and the "experts" within those. In this episode, we're peeling it back to the roots. Our lives and our children are OUR responsibility.

You asked... we answered! This Q&A episode is really a Q, A and O episode... Questions, answers and opinions.
This episode was a lot of fun to record. We got a look into the things that you're interested in hearing and had some laughs and meaningful moments as we talked through our answers.
We covered everything from covid, family, faith, and health, as well as how we came to be friends and what our relationship is like.
We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording this one!

In today's episode, we talk about human behaviour on the internet (and in real life, too).
We play a clip of a man responding to the brutal remarks her received on the internet and listen as he describes the dark pit it has sent him to.
We discuss how the people of the world feel compelled to "pick a team" and to associate their whole identity with the labels that the team proudly wears, while simultaneously disregarding and discarding those who wear a different label or may appear to be on a "different team."
The toxicity of the past couple of years has turned people against each other and has moved us away from what love really is.
The goal for this episode is to prepare us all with the tools and knowledge we need to engage well, communicate with kindness, and form resilience as we strive not to pick a team, but to lead with love.
