    Erica Greene is juggling her experience with being a new mom while being quarantined from COVID-19. She shares how not being able to depend on others to step in and help her has been really tough.  Erica's husband is a pharmacist, and his work demands have been drastically increased, making her time at home even more difficult.

During this conversation, you can watch Erica as she is even juggling taking care of her son, who has also just learned how to crawl making him more mobile, and video-calling with me at the same time.  Erica says that she misses her friends the most, and she misses the pressures of obligations the least.

  • Our Quarantined Life: Part 5 with Kelsie Stone

    13/05/2020 Duración: 01h06min

    Welcome to Part 5 of Our Quarantined Life. In this episode, I chat with a long-time friend, Kelsie Stone. Kelsie is the author of Glass Dust, and her wisdom certainly goes beyond her years.  Kelsie is passionate about people. In fact, she shaved her head in order to raise money for MUST Ministries during the COVID-19 crisis. Even though she is in isolation due to being immune-compromised, she wanted to continue to contribute to helping others in her community. She petitioned for people to donate money to this ministry in hopes of allowing more people to be fed during this pandemic. Kelsie has a connective tissue disease called Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, or HEDS for short. This disease is considered rare; however, Kelsie, along with others who have also been diagnosed, thinks that it is more common than we are aware.  Kelsie is immune-compromised and was also diagnosed with a disorder called Scheuermann Disease, and then eventually Ankylosing Spondylitis, after she found out that her spine was broken

  • Fear

    04/04/2020 Duración: 13min

    We are currently in a state of shutdown due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, and a lot of you are fearful. Fear is paralyzing. There is no preparation in fear. Fear doesn’t allow you to think properly or logically. Fear drives you to think about every possible scenario that could happen, or in your mind, will happen and doesn’t allow you to think logically about how things will actually and ultimately turn out. There is truth and there are lies. Sometimes, it’s hard to distinguish between the two. For show notes and transcripts, go to http://teaoflifepodcast.com/.

  • Quid Pro Quo of Religion

    05/03/2020 Duración: 19min

    Religion tells us that we need to Do something in order to be forgiven. This Quid Pro Quo is not biblical and keeps us in more bondage and in less freedom. In this episode, I talk about how this religious lie has stolen our ability to live in the freedom that we already have in Christ.  The good news here and the truth is that you are already forgiven! There is nothing that you can do or say in order to make yourself more forgiven than you already are!

  • Identity Crisis - Who Am I?

    25/02/2020 Duración: 23min

    According to some research, having an identity crisis can sometimes be considered a psychological issue. Some people can suffer from identity crises all of their life, while others may experience it periodically, and then others may begin to experience it at short times during their life when they are in situations that they allow to “define them.” It’s not the questioning that causes an identity crisis, it’s the failure to execute that causes an identity crisis. The crisis part comes after not being able to execute who you really are after you have identified yourself. For show notes, transcripts, links and more, go to http://teaoflifepodcast.com/.

  • What Makes YOU Happy?

    25/01/2020 Duración: 18min

I also introduced a new company founded by a few friends of ours and offer our listeners 10% off your entire order with a coupon code, so listen in to find out more about this and about what makes you happy!

  • When We Don't Fit In

    05/09/2019 Duración: 28min

    We all want to feel known in a sense of having a deep connection with someone else or maybe even a group of someone else's. We all long for the security that we feel that it will bring to us. There is something about having a deep relationship with others by their physical presence that cannot be replaced with virtual reality. For some, we may have been told that we don't fit in, or maybe we have felt or currently feel that we don’t fit in; that we don't measure up or that we are different than those around us. We may feel different. We may think differently. We may even look different or dress differently. We are constantly wondering where we fit into this world we call home. If you have ever felt this way or are currently feeling this way, today, I talk to you. I let you know that you are not alone, and I talk about how to begin to see change.

  • Living on $14,500 a Year - Our Debt-Free Story

    18/07/2019 Duración: 24min

    My husband and I have a lot of really great stories of living debt-free. It truly is a passion of ours that started when we became engaged in 1996. We decided that we didn't want to start a marriage with debt because we had seen the destruction that debt can cause in a marriage (and just in life in general), and we knew that we wanted no part of that. I can tell you that there is no faster way of getting out of debt than to tell your fiance that you cannot marry him until we are both debt-free! And, we did it! We were completely debt-free the day we got married, and for the next 4-1/2 years, we lived on $14,500/year. We were very passionate about living on what we made; no matter what we made, and we believe that God honored that and believe that God can and will honor that for you too, but it has to be a true desire. You have to live it, for Him to honor it. For complete transcripts, show notes, and product links, go to http://teaoflifepodcast.com/.

  • Winning Tactics for Change and Habits

    20/06/2019 Duración: 23min

    Change is hard! SO! HARD! People can say that they like change, but not a lot of people like TO change, or, to be more exact...people don’t like to BE changed. Some people do like to try to change us though, and I get into that a little bit on this episode as well. Sometimes change is necessary in order for things to be different. Albert Einstein said that “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again...expecting different results.” Sometimes we decide to change ourselves or our circumstances because we’re bored with where we are. The boredom forces us to get past it and do something else or actually...do...something. Some of us have been taught that we should never be bored because that’s when the devil creeps in and bad things happen; then, there’s also a saying that “if the devil can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy.” So, which is it? Is he going to creep into my boredom, or is he going to creep into my busyness? For show notes, links and transcripts, go to http://teaoflifepodc

  • Defining Financial Success

    20/05/2019 Duración: 17min

    We need to know that in order to get to where we want to be, we need to surround ourselves with people who are already there. We need to seek out and ask questions to those who have already achieved our desired status or who have achieved our desired position in society. Rayson Choo, host of the Raygacy show, recently posted that one of his listeners commented that he (Rayson) should be financially successful before interviewing people like Gary Vaynerchuk and Grant Cardone - both of which have already been on Rayson’s show and have encouraged him in many ways, and both have also agreed that what he is doing is fantastic and he should keep on keeping on! This is a total misconception, and today, I will tell you why. For show notes and transcripts, visit http://teaoflifepodcast.com/.

  • Feeling Stuck

    01/05/2019 Duración: 27min

    Are you feeling stuck; like you’re not going anywhere + that you’re on a path or a virtual treadmill to nowhere? Do you feel like no matter what you do, you cannot move ahead? All of us have been there at one time or another. In fact, we (my husband and I) are just coming out of a place where we have felt stuck. I have been teaching others how to become the best that they can be and how to live their best life, all while feeling somewhat stuck in our own lives. That didn’t happen because this stuff doesn’t work. It happened because we allowed it to happen; however, we have recently become unstuck, and the feeling has been AMAZING! Listen in today as I talk about how to become unstuck in your own life and begin to love the life you're living. Visit http://teaoflifepodcast.com/ for transcripts, show notes, and links.

  • Healthy Boundaries & Why You Need Them

    21/02/2019 Duración: 24min

    If you’ve ever felt guilty or anxious for saying no or have been talked into doing something that you never wanted to do in the first place, you may have a boundary problem. If you constantly deal with too much drama in your relationships or have difficulty making decisions, you may have a boundary problem. If you care too much about what other people think about you, you may have boundary issues. These are just a few examples as the list is long, so even if the above isn’t you, you could still have boundary issues, and in this episode, I help you solve them.
