Can sarcasm and humor help heal the wounds of a faith crisis? Those are the questions considered in today’s episode as Glenn is interviewed by author and life coach Wendi Jensen for her group Thriving After Mormonism.
Glenn and Tom sit down with Street Epistemologist extraordinaire Anthony Magnabosco to talk with Renee Cordeschi about her exit from the Jehovah’s Witness cult. Keep track of any the Mormon parallels. There will be a quiz (only 144,000 people will pass).
Carole explains the habits of mind in the development of personality and how to avoid type-casting and pigeonholing when studying the Enneagram personality types.
Today Glenn sits down with Carole Whittaker, a teacher on the Enneagram (which is a fascinating tool for personality typing). Carole experienced a crisis of faith from her Catholic upbringing while she earned a PhD in Chemistry and began seeing that life outside her cultural faith bubble was different that what she had previously believed. After some great personal challenges, Carole experienced a spiritual reawakening, and the Enneagram played an important role. Part one of this conversation explores Carole’s background and story of faith crisis. Part two goes into more depth on the Enneagram and the neurological habits we develop that color the different ways we view and experience the world. It is a fascinating two-part series. Enjoy.
What if you dedicated your life to a certain direction. You put all your eggs in one basket, and then came to the stark realization that not only is the basket not really a basket, but maybe your eggs aren’t even really eggs?
Sound familiar at all?
Luke Norsworthy is a Christian Pastor who experienced a faith crisis when he saw that the Bible and his expectations of God didn’t really stack up against reality. Luke recently wrote about his faith crisis in the book God over Good. Luke also runs a weekly podcast called Newsworthy with Norsworthy and is a 7 on the Enneagram. Just like me. Enjoy!

What do you do when you discover the man behind the curtain? Do you walk away and trash it all because of the deception? Or do you keep pulling those levers and put on a really great show in the name of something better? Today’s guest is Anthony D Miller, who talks about his faith crisis, his inner voice, the trouble with differentiation, his commitment to serving those around him, and a bunch of other great stuff. Enjoy.
This is part 2 of my conversation with Tami.
How can you hold on to those things that are most important while discarding the things that harm you? Today Glenn sits down with long time friend Tami Whiting to discuss her INCREDIBLE book “Making Space for Me.” Tami lived a very rough life, found community in unexpected places, and then eventually had to walk away. That description does not do her story justice. You just have to hear it to believe it.
In part two, Brady explains how he rediscovered and redefined “God.” Is suffering really the best teacher? What is the difference between Lying and Lies?
This 2-part interview with Brady is the 2nd installment of IOT’s ongoing “Meaning of Life” series. Enjoy!
