How do you calm your frazzled emotions, when your worries spin out of control, panic sets in as your heart rate spikes, and anxious thoughts overwhelm your mind and your body? Bonnie invites us to join her special guest Nurse Mark to learn about three powerful ways to stop anxiety right away, calm panic attacks, and halt the overwhelming spiral of worries hijacking your thoughts.

Letting Go of Guilt, Busyness, Expectations & Anxiety as an Introvert - Ep. #48
November 14, 2022 - 29 min

Change is difficult. As we grow and learn about our bodies and our emotional limits, we have to make changes that are healthier for us, which can bring on feelings of guilt and changing expectations from others and ourselves. Learn about the two types of anxiety that stem from the Left Brain and Right Brain science of anxiety. Bonnie explores the One Thing Principle and two soul-care tips to lower anxiety using the right brain science.


Bonus: Breathe listener Amy shares about the stress of being a people pleaser and introvert during holidays and her tips on how to lower stress.


Learn the necessity:

  • To mourn giving up what used to be before we could embrace the new things.
  • To make changes: Just because things can’t be the same doesn’t mean they are bad.
  • To deal with guilty feelings when you’re overwhelmed with social interaction.
  • Healthy boundaries, so when you are together, you can focus on the why and enjoy the time together vs. the “when” of when you get together.


Scripture: Your love, oh Lord, reaches to the heavens. Your faithfulness stretches to the skies.” - Psalm 36:5

Overcome Family Tensions & Lower Negative Holiday Stress (with Becky Keife) - Ep 47
November 7, 2022 - 23 min

What stresses you most about the upcoming holidays? Do find yourself feeling discouraged, dreading family gatherings that fraught with stress, when it seems everyone is having picture perfect holidays? You’re not alone. Today, we're tackling different ways of dealing with family tensions and fractured relationships.

Join Bonnie in a powerful, heartfelt conversation about how to overcome family holiday stress with author Becky Keife – a child of divorce and a woman who struggles with anxiety as they explore the question we all ask: Why does it have to be this way?

They discuss:

- How our holiday stories, no matter how fraught or difficult they are, are not going to define us as God’s beloved daughters.

- How we can use our broken stories to shine God’s light in our lives – and draw closer to God and each other through the very struggles we would rather run from. And that’s the miracle of grace.

Today's Scripture: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
