Look up statistics about therapy and you probably won't be surprised: Since 2020, 30% of american adults have been to therapy. In the past year, around 25% of adult women and 15% of adult men have received some form of mental health treatment. In 2020, about 25% of white adults received therapy, compared to 15% of Black adults, and around 12% of Hispanic adults. In a world where the struggles of the mind often go unaddressed or misunderstood, it's crucial for us to have dialogue about faith, therapy, mental health, and healing. In this new series, we will explore this unique intrersection in our minds, drawing upon biblical wisdom, personal experiences, and psychologial insights to uncover practical tools and truths to navigate these streets.

Reckless: His Love... His Sacrifice

Tue, 02 Apr 2024 02:00:00 -0400
In just about every context, the word “reckless” either means not heeding danger or not knowing the outcome and acting anyway. A parent who plunges into a burning house to rescue a child is reckless in the sense that they’re ignoring the danger and might die in the process. That could certainly be called reckless love and is probably the most positive example of recklessness. God’s love, on the other hand, is incredibly intentional and fully omniscient, and that’s what makes it so beautiful. When it comes to saving and rescuing and redeeming and loving us, God knew EXACTLY what he was getting into. This is Episode Four of Reckless: His Love... His Sacrifice.

Best of Vantage Point (Nick's Pick) #1

Wed, 31 Jan 2024 17:00:00 -0500
We are kicking off 2024 with a bang as we are celebrating 5 years of Vantage Point Podcast!! We are dropping two episodes per week (9a and 5p). The 9a are the top 5 most downloaded episodes. The 5pm episodes are Nick's personal favorites. Get ready to take a trip down memory lane as we look back at The Best of Vantage Point Podcast. Nick's 3rd favorite epsiode comes from the series titled: Seasons. One thing we know about seasons is they are inevitable. We know this in scripture and in what see. We experience Spring, Summer, Fall, and winter every year and we know they are coming. We have signs like temperature, changing colors, and longer days that let us know seasons change. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." To experience seasons, we have to have knowledge that gives us full understanding on the seasons we go through. This is the series finale titled: Praise Him Anyway!
