The Power of Creativity to Nourish
October 21, 2021
Hosted by Dr. Veirdre Jackson
In a “microwave culture” and a “right now mindset”, we can be pushed by demands and rushed by timelines and forget the power of wonder, curiosity, and creativity. Our next conversation with Dr. Shanda McManus creates a flip to that narrative as she shares her story which leads us from the front lines of a pandemic to the front row of her dream. Lean in to listen to how finding space to create also poured vitality into her life, even as she juggled being an essential worker, mother, and wife. There is power that nourishes at the heart of creativity. We hope you will allow her journey of finding room for herself and her artistry to help you to tap into your own creative path toward your destiny.
Living Strong: The Flip Side of Adversity
Thursday at 2 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Resilience isn’t about bouncing back, but bouncing forward. Living Strong: The Flip Side of Adversity brings powerful stories and fearless conversations from experts in the field of business, relationships, emotional, physical and mental health, and faith-based communities together to give practical insight on how there is always a flip side to every story. Each episode creates a brave space that combines proven lessons from neuroscience, powerful tools from authentic connection, key principles from life lessons, and practical promises from faith-based insights. Trauma, toxic stress, broken habits and hurting hearts don’t define destiny, but peace isn’t passive. It requires an exchange. To create a flip and access peace in the middle of the pieces, you are challenged to make an exchange of the lies that have kept you mentally hostage in basement moments for a Steps of Growth framework, which cultivates a shift toward growth planning and forward movement.
