The Untold Story: What stopped me from leaving God and the Church
Show Notes

In this video, I'm sharing the untold story of why I wanted to leave God and the Church but eventually didn’t and what was the one thing that stopped me!

It was a very personal and emotional battle that I fought for years, but finally I was introduced to something that changed the game for me and gave me the time and space to face my inner demons and overcome them.

Although I wanted to leave and abandon everything, this one thing stopped me. Deep down, I never believed that leaving God and the Church was the right thing to do, but running away was all I ever knew.

If you're struggling with doubts about your faith, or about yourself, this video is for you. 

By sharing my story, I hope to help you find healing and understanding. 
Please share it with friends and family who may need it too!

Contemplative Prayer / Meditation Resources

8  Starter Steps To Contemplative Prayer 

1. Rise early in the morning before everyone else in your household (or a time that’s best for you)

2. Commit 5 -15 mins to sitting alone in silence without talking, reading, watching, etc..

3. Breath deeply & slowly— in through the nose and out through the mouth while allowing every muscle in your body to relax (notice where there’s tension and release it)

4. Acknowledge God’s presence & Ask (with you inner voice)  to show what you need to see; to say what you need to hear

5. Allow for each thought to enter your mind and allow it to be without judgement or rejection 

6. Consider what God reveals as you  reflect on your life and recall scriptures that correspond 

7. Ask yourself, “what is the most logical & appropriate action I can take based on this information”? (Allow time for an answer to  truly resonates to emerge from within you. Note, sometimes, the answer is no action at all)

8. Continue to do this as often as you desire and be patient with yourself, don't make it another “Christian Chore” or Checklist item  but rather a way to care for yourself — releasing the old ideals that no longer serve you and receiving insights that do
