Dr. Diane Langberg is a pioneer. As a practicing psychologist for nearly five decades, she gives voice to those without a voice. She joins us this week to talk about how we can help our kids find their voice and use it for good in the world. She also describes practical ways we can teach our kids to stand against unhealthy people and systems. 

Speaking from the heart of a mother and grandmother, and from the experience of a psychologist, Diane defines power as "the capacity to impact." From a nursing home resident, to your newborn infant screaming for food in the middle of the night, the capacity to impact others is in all of us. But what happens when power is abused? Particularly in a system, whether political or religious, that uses God's name as a weapon to protect the system more than the people it serves?

In this episode, Diane joins us to talk about her new book Redeeming Power: Understanding Authority and Abuse in the Church. She shares how we can redeem our own voice if hurt by those in power and how we can help our kids find their voice and use their power for good in the world.

Here are a few of the highlights: 

* Diane shares who helped her find her voice as a little girl and how it shaped who she is today who she is today * How women can prioritize raising kids and doing what they love* Where our power originates from* The danger of trying to move on too quickly after an apology* Practical ways to help your kids find their voice and recognize unhealthy systems* The healthy steps toward healing for the parent once victimized
