If you’re not experiencing joy in your relationships. If you think joy only happens when it mysteriously happens, and it rarely happens; Chris Coursey joins us to show that we can have consistent joy in our relationships. Chris is a counselor and author; he and his bride Jen, are the creators of Thrive, that uses brain-based exercises to help us thrive in our relationships. At the core, consistent joy in our relationships happens when draw from joy-packed relational memories stored in our brains. It’s crazy good stuff.
First Chris shares how he grew up thinking God was angry with him. Then, if you can’t believe that Jesus is glad to be with you, it’s because you’re seeing him through your wounds. Next, how to turn the joy switch on! Then, a moment of pure joy; when Chris’s crying newborn son suddenly stopped when he heard Chris say, “Daddy’s here.” Next, how Chris reset to joy when an irate driver was right on his bumper. Last, how we reset to joy in conflict. Share today’s show if it encourages you!
