Your leadership coach
and self-care advocate


The Crabby Pastor

Picture this: a world where faith and brain science intertwine and the knowledge of both can empower us not only spiritually but biologically as well. Sounds intriguing? Sit down with me, your host Margie Bryce, and my guest Alicia Michelle, a certified neuro coach, as we guide you through this extraordinary intersection of brain science and biblical teachings. We unravel the mysteries of brain plasticity and the phenomenal power it holds in shaping our minds to walk hand in hand with God's will. We also venture into the realm of how thoughts can command our behavior and remarkably, activate or deactivate DNA within our cells.

Ever wondered how to face the monster called anxiety armed with the dual swords of faith and neuroscience? Alicia and I provide a map of this landscape, illustrating how our bodies react to fear and how we can subdue anxiety by merging the wisdom of both faith and brain science. We also spotlight the significance of crafting new patterns to replace anxious reactions and strike a balance between trusting in God and handling personal disruptions. The exploration becomes even more profound as we dissect the impact of our beliefs and negative thought patterns on our lives and the force of affirmations in making a change.

Finally, we dedicate a significant part of our conversation to the often-overlooked segment of our community—the ministry leaders. We converse about the importance of distinguishing truth from fiction and acknowledging the reality of situations they face. We emphasize how addressing deep-rooted patterns can foster progress from a fresh foundation. The necessity for support for these leaders becomes evident as we discuss the need for them to serve well. As we conclude, we echo the significance of sustainability in ministry, and how putting on the lens of a biblical worldview helps distinguish truth from misinformation and master anxiety management. Join us on this enlightening journey, and gain wisdom that transcends spiritual and biological boundaries.
