What‘s It Like To Be In Relationship With Me? Ep. 3

October 19, 2021

Lance Wigton is back with counselor Beth Keop for part three of our series on Emotional Intelligence.

In this episode Beth leads out with the 10 primary emotions that we experience, and the balance we need to find between Emotion and Reason. Naming/Identifying your emotions is where we start the process of learning to manage them.

10 Primary Emotions:

  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Sadness
  • Disgust
  • Envy
  • Jealousy
  • Shame
  • Guilt
  • Love
  • Happiness

Beth whiteboards the process to determine our root emotions using Lance’s experience with his Core Value exercise that he did after Episode 1. (If you have not watched Episode 1 yet you can watch it here) https://realliferesources.org/podcast/whats-it-like-to-be-in-relationship-with-me-ep-1/

 

Action/Urge Process:

  • Prompting Event – Emotion – Urge/Action

Beth uses the example of her own Anger/Guilt/Shame cycle to help us learn to recognize the cycles that we develop over time that can become a coping skill in our lives.

She explains how tracking back to your primary emotion in a prompting event can help you determine what value of yours is not being met. Once we discover this, we can find different ways to fill our needs so that we no longer require the coping skills we have developed.

Beth also shares how looking back at the tendencies and reactions that seem to be a reflex in your life can lead you to things that are buried in your life that you need to look at and deal with.

Having this information can help us rein in some of our overblown emotional responses to the situations around us, which could be a pivotal tool to help us increase self-awareness and raise our Emotional Intelligence level towards both ourselves and those around us.

What Is It Like To Be In Relationship With Me? Ep. 2

October 14, 2021

Lance Wigton and Beth Keop are back – and in this episode, they break down what it looks like when our Core Values are challenged. Lance shares his experience with doing the homework Beth had assigned during Ep. 1 – asking the people around him what they believed his values were. He did not get the response he expected.

 

Beth debriefs the situation with Lance and helps him investigate his own actions and impulses to determine the root emotion he was experiencing, for the purpose of helping him discover his Core Values.

 

Some of the topics addressed in this episode are:

 

  • What does it mean if I feel bad?

 

  • What does it look like to be curious about my emotions?

 

  • How do I know the difference between a thought and an emotion?

 

  • Why is it important to identify my emotions?

 

Beth walks us through a visual and shows us how to look at a prompting event in our life and determine the action we wanted to take in response to it, which will lead us to the primary emotion we were experiencing. This process will help us discover the core value that is being blocked or attacked.

 

Having this information can help us rein in some of our overblown emotional responses to the situations around us, which could be a pivotal tool to help us increase self-awareness and raise our Emotional Intelligence level towards both ourselves and those around us.

This week on the Real for Life podcast Lance Wigton is joined by long time Real Life member Beth Keop, who is a Clinical Supervisor for a Community Mental Health Provider in North Idaho. 

Beth has led Emotional Intelligence workshops for our Real Life Staff and for members in our Real Life Classes venue, and today she is talking through some of the information from her training.

Leadership is influencing people to follow you. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to lead people. In order for people to follow us, we need to have an emotional understanding of ourselves and of others.

As disciples and ambassadors for Jesus, the ability to engage with others and become aware of their emotional state is an important component of our knowledge and ability to reach them. It will help us not only to determine what questions to ask others to help us identify their needs, it can also bring about an awareness of own emotional reflexes and filters so that we can ensure they don't get in the way.

 

Some of things Lance and Beth discuss include:

  • What is Emotional Intelligence?
  • Why is your EI more important in leadership than your IQ?
  • How do emotions motivate behavior?
  • Why Self Awareness is the cornerstone of EI.
  • Why trust and vulnerability are key.
  • How do guilt and shame contribute to Self-Awareness?

We hope you find this session enlightening and helpful, and we encourage you to subscribe to this podcast so that you don't miss new episodes!

In this episode of the Real For Life podcast, Lance Wigton speaks with Real Life's International Discipleship Team members Dave Campbell and Paul Byrns. They discuss the ins and outs of engaging in conversation and relationship with people from a culture that is different from your own.

  • How do we break down barriers and allow trust and transparency to take place?
  • How do we become familiar with cultural differences that may exist?
  • How do we move past awkward moments when they come up?
  • Where do we encounter different cultures without leaving the country?
  • How do we look at those around us every day with the same grace we have towards other cultures?
  • What cultural differences might we run into in our small groups?

What Does An Egg Hunt Have To Do With Easter?

What Does An Egg Hunt Have To Do With Easter?

April 1, 2021

On this podcast Jim Putman, Senior Pastor at Real Life Ministries and Lance Wigton, Communication Director at Real Life Ministries, answer an often asked question - "Why would a church do an egg hunt for Easter?"

They talk about the fact that even though we know Bunnies and eggs have nothing to do with celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are always looking for ways to go outside of our walls and reach the world for Jesus one person at a time.

They explain the philosophy behind what we call a 'Bridge' event - and why it can cause people to take a step into a relational environment and bring them a step closer to a relationship with God and His Church.
