On a bad-mood day, I discovered the need to just show up. I had just finished day two of presenting at a major conference on a college campus. The beautiful spring day didn’t match my mood. I had done a lot of processing and prepping for presentations focused on heavy topics. I was starting to fear that perhaps I would just show up and not be able to inspire my audiences in ways I desired.

PATHEOS Interfaith I GLORY IN MY JESUS

PATHEOS Interfaith I GLORY IN MY JESUS

It is hard to choose a favorite scripture, but if I had to it would be “I glory in plainness; I glory in truth; I glory in my Jesus, for he hath redeemed my soul from hell” (2 Nephi 33:6). Maybe it is the personal nature of this scripture—my Jesus? Or is it the simple power of relying completely on Christ to find peace and redemption? It is both. We mortals tend to make things more complicated than needed. When I complicate things, I really complicate things.  But when I get caught in the weeds of confusion, I have found the Spirit strongest by remembering some specific ways that I glory in Jesus and return to His simple truths.

Female Friendships – GTU ABC 4tv

Ganel-Lyn Condie, motivational speaker, spoke today about the importance of female friendships. She shared five reasons why they are essential to women’s health. They can help women to live longer lives. Female friendships give us healthy hormones, like oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin. These help with emotional wellbeing and longevity. They help to build one another up. When you think of supporting your friends rather than competing with them, you friendships thrive. Getting real and going deep. Friendships only work when you get vulnerable and open up, bringing safety and openness for yourself. Quality over quantity. It is not about how many friends you have, but the bond you have with people. A strong bond with a few people is more important than a weak bond with many. Invest. In order to have strong friends, you have to be one to have one. Friends can change and evolve though...

The True Meaning behind Courage: Good Things Utah

The True Meaning behind Courage: Good Things Utah

Motivational speaker, Ganel Lyn, joins us in the studio today to discuss what courage really is and some of the misconceptions surrounding it. She defines courage as not letting fear get the final word or last say in your life. Ganel-Lyn says people sometimes think courage is always doing something crazy, like jumping out of a plane, but it can even be just showing up as your authentic self every day. Private and personal decisions in your life take courage and there’s not always an audience to applaud you for it. Sometimes just showing up to social situations take courage so it’s important to give yourself credit for that.

Be sure to set aside time for self-care or talk about your fears to someone,...

Are you a Steward or an Owner

In this episode, we spoke with Ganel-Lyn Condie, a popular motivational speaker, author and podcast host. She’s written several books and currently hosts two podcasts: “Real Talk – Come Follow Me” and “The Middle”. We spoke with her about a couple of topics that she’s spoken and written about recently — first is her concept of “stewardship vs. ownership,” which is a really great insight into facing challenges without letting them become an identity. Secondly, we discussed the concept of “letting God prevail,” which was the focus of President Nelson’s October 2020 General Conference address. We loved talking with Ganel-Lyn and found her to be extraordinarily authentic and approachable. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.

When was the last time you bit into a sweet, warm, and gooey chocolate chip cookie? I can imagine that your first thought when you took a bite was probably, “Wow, I’m in heaven! This is delicious,” and not, “Wow, I’m so glad someone failed.” Ruth Wakefield invented chocolate chip cookies on accident when experimenting with cookie recipes. The result of chocolate in cookies was nothing like what she was trying to accomplish, and yet that failure was the birth of what is arguably the best cookie in the world. So what can we learn from Ruth’s example? How can we learn how to embrace our mistakes as learning moments on our path to success?

There is an old African proverb that goes: Once after a storm, the beach was littered with starfish. One man walked down the beach and picked up on starfish at a time and chucked them back into the ocean. Another man walked by and scoffed, “you will never be able to save all the starfish out here.” To which the wise man responded, “yes I know, but to this one I have made all the difference” as he throws one more into the ocean.
