I found Mark DeJesus by reading Exposing the Rejection Mindset (recommended by a counselor). As a writer, I recognized right away that this book had zero “fluff” (added filler info). Every chapter felt like gold. It completely helped to rewire my thinking and my understanding of God as a loving Father, which helped me in what I was seeking: freedom and wisdom within difficult relationships. This podcast echoes the tone of the book, with extremely practical application and relatable examples, all in a non-condemning and loving way. He and his wife provide the most impactful insight, sighting their very diverse experiences in church leadership and family life, and all the toxic things that can actually be present there. This has been a wonderful tool for my healing and understanding, coming out of a difficult family with a father who wasn’t present and also a very legalistic church that I was deeply dedicated to. I no longer feel riddled with shame and like I’m not loved or enough. I know God loves me like a precious daughter, and I love him so much!! Thank you so much for sharing your wealth of knowledge. It has transformed my life.
