Todd White Unboxing | The Power of Your Testimony In Leaving A Lasting Legacy

Season 1, Ep. 239
Life Is Short-Leave a Legacy. The Todd White Story is his new book which came out at the beginning of this year which means you can go and grab a copy now.Todd White was a drug addict and atheist for 22 years until 2004 when he was radically set free! Todd believes that redemption and righteousness are the foundational keys for living life as a new creation in Christ. Todd’s foremost desire is to see the Holy Spirit flowing through believers everywhere that they go–at work, school, grocery stores, malls, gas stations, and more. Todd’s true joy is being able to reproduce a 24/7 kingdom lifestyle in every believer. His heart is to activate people in the simplicity of who they really are and confront the barriers that hold them back from being who God created them to be.Evangelist Todd White hears those words often. But the truth is that what Todd shares is not just a story - it's a testimony. It is evidence not only of what God has done but of what He wants to do again. It is evidence of what God can and will do for you, of what God wants to do for you.Fully addicted to drugs and pornography as a child, Todd lived in darkness. But his testimony is about a journey from that utter darkness into marvelous light. It is about a man who hungers for the Word of God and has been radically saved, changed by it. It is about a man learning to be exactly who God created him to be. It is about a child of God walking in the light of Jesus and wanting others to walk in the light too.With refreshing honesty, Todd White challenges readers to make Jesus their everything, to renew their minds, to be bold as lions, and to make an impact for the kingdom of God.Buy Todd's new book here: Amazon AU: https://www.amazon.com.au/Life-Short-Leave-Legacy-White/dp/0989410471/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/Life-Short-Leave-Legacy-White/dp/0989410471Connect with Todd White here: Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/lifestylechristianity/Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/lifestylechristianityhttps://www.facebook.com/ToddWhiteLC/ YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/toddwhitelcFollow The Story Box on Social MediaINSTAGRAM ► - https://www.instagram.com/thestoryboxpodcast/TWITTER ► - https://twitter.com/jay_fantomFACEBOOK ► -https://www.facebook.com/thestoryboxpodcastWEBSITE ► - https://thestoryboxpodcast.com/SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE!Apple Podcast► - https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-story-box/id1486295252Spotify► - https://open.spotify.com/show/7h8Qv3r2ZV29f7ktJOwmgM?si=FXxYC1JFSHesBv7_d1WtNQWATCH HERE:YouTube ► - https://www.youtube.com/c/TheStoryBoxIf you enjoyed this episode please subscribe to YouTube & Apple Podcasts, and leave a 5-star positive rating and review over on Apple Podcasts.

Bessel Van Der Kolk Unboxing | The Body Keeps The Score Understanding & Healing From Trauma

Season 1, Ep. 235
Bessel van der Kolk MD has spent his professional life studying how children and adults adapt to traumatic experiences. He translates emerging findings from neuroscience and attachment research to develop and study a range of effective treatments for traumatic stress and developmental trauma in children and adults.Integrating Therapy with ScienceIn the past 3 decades, we have learned an enormous amount about brain functions and interpersonal attachment systems. This new knowledge has not always been systematically applied to help traumatized children and adults heal from trauma. Dr. van der Kolk's work is focused on integrating therapy with science.Dr. van der Kolk has published over 150 peer-reviewed articles, diversely ranging from neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, developmental trauma, yoga, and theater to EMDR.The Body Keeps The ScoreBRAIN, MIND, AND BODY IN THE HEALING OF TRAUMAThe Body Keeps the Score is the inspiring story of how a group of therapists and scientists— together with their courageous and memorable patients—has struggled to integrate recent advances in brain science, attachment research, and body awareness into treatments that can free trauma survivors from the tyranny of the past. These new paths to recovery activate the brain’s natural neuroplasticity to rewire disturbed functioning and rebuild step by step the ability to “know what you know and feel what you feel.” They also offer experiences that directly counteract the helplessness and invisibility associated with trauma, enabling both adults and children to reclaim ownership of their bodies and their lives.4 week program with Bessel van der KolkIn this dynamic, interactive series, Bessel van der Kolk, M.D. expands on his groundbreaking work The Body Keeps the Score, where he synthesizes history, neurology, and trauma research to deepen our understanding of trauma and trauma treatment.We invite you to join us for this distinctive and exciting 4-week program where Dr. van der Kolk will begin with a lecture followed by an open dialogue session. This is an exciting opportunity to explore ideas, critically examine trauma and trauma treatments, and hear directly from Dr. van der Kolk about the things that most ignite your interests.Each of the 4 sessions are 1.5 hours, with the time divided between lecture and dialogue with Dr. van der Kolk. Questions can be submitted both in advance and live during the session. Your questions, thoughts, and ideas will help shape the series.USE CODE: storyboxcommunity for $100 off!
