Wendy brings "Survival Guide for the Soul" by Ted Shigematsu to the Summer Book Club series and shares the impact it had on her life, discussing its findings in psychology, neuroscience and culture and how it traces them back to their biblical roots. They talk about trauma experiences, including experiencing an earthquake and emotional wounding, and how this book has helped them with the process of forgiving. They also discuss four practical steps and hands-on exercises to help us extend empathy to others and embrace healing for ourselves. Donna and Kevann talk about "Love Does" by Bob Goff, a great book exploring the relationship between whimsy and faith.
They chat about several life lessons the author has learned through really outlandish choices and circumstances in his life. Through them, he shows us how to engage with God to change the world. Donna and Kevann unpack "Post Secret" by Frank Warren, a coffee table book that, in a creative way, surfaces the topic of how to manage the shame we carry. They talk about the difference between guilt and shame, the origin of shame storms and the beautifully intense vulnerability of a whole life confession.
