Being Human

Sep 20, 2022

Welcome to Episode 92 of the Being Human Podcast: How to Make Good Decisions, w/ Dr. Bryan and Amy Grace (Certification Series: Part 9 of 12)

On this week’s episode introducing content in the third-level spirituality course of our new Certification, Amy Grace takes over as host with Dr. Greg and Dr. Bryan joining in for a conversation about decision-making and discernment of spirits! 

Discussed in this episode:  

  • Can we trust our desires when making decisions?; 
  • The moral implication present in each choice; 
  • Making good decisions, and helping others do the same;
  • Can God draw good from our mistakes or bad choices? 
  • What is meant by “discernment of spirits”; 
  • How God uses both desolation and consolation for our benefit; 
  • Deciding between two good options: is there a choice that is best? 
  • The way our personal narratives and wounds impact our ability to make decisions;
  • The danger in spiritual directors being unaware of their patterns of relating; 
  • Our engagement with spiritual content as interpreted through our psychology.
