  • 00:01:40.040 --> 00:01:41.100
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:01:41.100 --> 00:01:42.120
  • - ERIC: YEAH, IT'S KIND OF
  • 00:01:42.120 --> 00:01:44.020

  • - ERIC: BUT YOU, LIKE ME,
  • 00:01:47.020 --> 00:01:48.210
  • YOU UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:01:48.210 --> 00:01:49.200
  • THIS IS JUST REAL.
  • 00:01:49.200 --> 00:01:50.150
  • THIS DOESN'T COME FROM, LIKE,
  • 00:01:50.150 --> 00:01:51.060
  • WHO'S AROUND YOU.
  • 00:01:51.060 --> 00:01:52.040
  • THIS JUST CAN BE A CONDITION,
  • 00:01:52.040 --> 00:01:53.090
  • AND HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH IT, AND
  • 00:01:53.090 --> 00:01:55.110
  • WHY DID YOU WRITE THIS
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:58.060
  • PARTICULAR BOOK ON THE SUBJECT?
  • 00:01:58.060 --> 00:02:00.030
  • - REBEKAH: WELL, IT CAME TO A
  • 00:02:00.030 --> 00:02:01.000
  • HEAD FOR ME IN 2010, WHEN WE
  • 00:02:01.000 --> 00:02:02.000
  • MOVED TO NEW YORK CITY.
  • 00:02:02.000 --> 00:02:03.180
  • THAT'S WHEN WE GOT TO KNOW EACH
  • 00:02:03.180 --> 00:02:04.230
  • OTHER, YOU AND I.
  • 00:02:04.230 --> 00:02:05.240
  • - ERIC: YEAH.
  • 00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:06.280
  • - REBEKAH: AND, AT THE TIME,
  • 00:02:06.280 --> 00:02:07.210
  • OUR KIDS WERE FOUR, SEVEN, AND
  • 00:02:07.210 --> 00:02:08.120
  • NINE, SO THEY WERE IN THE THROES
  • 00:02:08.120 --> 00:02:09.070
  • OF ELEMENTARY, AND WITHIN FOUR
  • 00:02:09.070 --> 00:02:11.080
  • MONTHS OF BEING HERE, I HAD MY
  • 00:02:11.080 --> 00:02:12.160
  • FIRST PANIC ATTACK ON A FLIGHT
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:14.050
  • FROM ATLANTA, BACK TO LAGUARDIA.
  • 00:02:14.050 --> 00:02:15.290
  • ALMOST AT MIDNIGHT, HIT
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:17.100
  • TURBULENCE, AND SOMETHING ROSE
  • 00:02:17.100 --> 00:02:19.020
  • IN ME, JUST SHEER TERROR, AND
  • 00:02:19.020 --> 00:02:22.010
  • THEN WHAT BEGAN THAT DAY
  • 00:02:22.010 --> 00:02:23.080
  • CONTINUED ON PLANES, TRAINS,
  • 00:02:23.080 --> 00:02:25.130
  • ELEVATORS, SUBWAYS, AND CROWDS.
  • 00:02:25.130 --> 00:02:26.270
  • WELCOME TO NEW YORK CITY, RIGHT?
  • 00:02:26.270 --> 00:02:29.080
  • - ERIC: WOW.
  • 00:02:29.080 --> 00:02:29.280
  • - REBEKAH: THERE WAS NO WAY TO
  • 00:02:29.280 --> 00:02:30.200
  • AVOID THOSE THINGS, AND I
  • 00:02:30.200 --> 00:02:32.200
  • REMEMBER TRYING JUST TO TAKE TWO
  • 00:02:32.200 --> 00:02:34.030
  • TRAIN STOPS TO MY KIDS' SCHOOL
  • 00:02:34.030 --> 00:02:35.180
  • FOR A PROGRAM.
  • 00:02:35.180 --> 00:02:37.240
  • THEY WERE GONNA DO MUSIC AND
  • 00:02:37.240 --> 00:02:38.140
  • SONG, AND I COULDN'T-- I
  • 00:02:38.140 --> 00:02:41.080
  • ACTUALLY TRIED TO CLAW THE DOORS
  • 00:02:41.080 --> 00:02:42.240
  • OF THE SUBWAY BACK OPEN AND HOP
  • 00:02:42.240 --> 00:02:44.170
  • OFF, WHICH ISN'T RATIONAL.
  • 00:02:44.170 --> 00:02:46.250
  • EVERYONE KIND OF BACKED AWAY A
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:47.230
  • LITTLE BIT, AND I JUST REMEMBER
  • 00:02:47.230 --> 00:02:48.180
  • THE WHOLE TIME JUST, LIKE,
  • 00:02:48.180 --> 00:02:51.070
  • FEELING TRAPPED, SO, FOR ME, MY
  • 00:02:51.070 --> 00:02:53.050
  • ANXIETY AND PANIC DISORDER CAME
  • 00:02:53.050 --> 00:02:55.220
  • OUT OF A PLACE OF CLAUSTROPHOBIA
  • 00:02:55.220 --> 00:02:57.200
  • THAT I'D NEVER HAD IN MY LIFE
  • 00:02:57.200 --> 00:02:58.280
  • BEFORE, BUT IT WAS THIS METAPHOR
  • 00:02:58.280 --> 00:03:00.280
  • FOR FEELING TRAPPED, FEELING
  • 00:03:00.280 --> 00:03:02.010
  • TRAPPED MAYBE IN A CIRCUMSTANCE
  • 00:03:02.030 --> 00:03:05.030
  • OR A RELATIONSHIP OR NOT MAYBE A
  • 00:03:05.030 --> 00:03:07.080
  • PERSONAL EVENT, BUT IT CAME TO A
  • 00:03:07.080 --> 00:03:08.170
  • HEAD.
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:11.030
  • NEW YORK WAS THE PRESSURE COOKER
  • 00:03:11.030 --> 00:03:11.290
  • THAT PUSHED THAT TO THE SURFACE.
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:13.190
  • - ERIC: IT'S SO INTERESTING, TO
  • 00:03:13.190 --> 00:03:14.240
  • ME, BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, KNOWING
  • 00:03:14.240 --> 00:03:16.050
  • YOU AS I DO, YOU'RE NOT THE KIND
  • 00:03:16.050 --> 00:03:17.140
  • OF PERSON THAT SOMEBODY WOULD
  • 00:03:17.140 --> 00:03:19.210
  • TYPICALLY SAY, LIKE, "OH, YEAH,
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:21.060
  • SHE'S GONNA DEAL WITH ANXIETY,"
  • 00:03:21.060 --> 00:03:22.060
  • OR WHATEVER, AND SO I THINK
  • 00:03:22.060 --> 00:03:23.010
  • YOU'RE THE PERFECT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:24.130
  • POSTER GIRL FOR THIS IS THAT
  • 00:03:24.140 --> 00:03:27.140
  • YOU'RE JUST GOING THROUGH LIFE,
  • 00:03:27.140 --> 00:03:29.080
  • AND THIS THING HITS YOU, AND SO
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:31.260
  • IT'S NOT EASY TO SAY, LIKE,
  • 00:03:31.260 --> 00:03:34.040
  • "WELL, YOU NEED TO DO THIS.
  • 00:03:34.040 --> 00:03:35.210
  • YOU NEED TO DO--" THERE DOESN'T
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:36.250
  • SEEM TO BE ANYTHING YOU
  • 00:03:36.250 --> 00:03:37.190
  • NEED TO DO.
  • 00:03:37.190 --> 00:03:38.080
  • YOU'RE EMOTIONALLY STABLE.
  • 00:03:38.080 --> 00:03:39.140
  • YOU HAVE A DEEP FAITH IN GOD.
  • 00:03:39.140 --> 00:03:41.200
  • YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL MARRIAGE,
  • 00:03:41.200 --> 00:03:43.000
  • WONDERFUL KIDS, AND, YET IT
  • 00:03:43.000 --> 00:03:43.280
  • HAPPENED TO YOU.
  • 00:03:44.270 --> 00:03:47.270
  • SO I THINK YOU'RE THE PERFECT
  • 00:03:47.270 --> 00:03:48.180
  • PERSON TO HELP PEOPLE NEGOTIATE
  • 00:03:48.180 --> 00:03:49.130
  • THIS, TO DEAL WITH THIS.
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:51.220
  • SO I GUESS MY QUESTION, THE
  • 00:03:51.220 --> 00:03:52.220
  • FIRST QUESTION IS THE TITLE IS
  • 00:03:52.220 --> 00:03:53.190
  • "RHYTHMS OF RENEWAL: TRADING
  • 00:03:53.190 --> 00:03:54.210
  • STRESS AND ANXIETY FOR A LIFE OF
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:56.010
  • PEACE AND PURPOSE."
  • 00:03:56.010 --> 00:03:58.130
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT TERM,
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:03:59.040
  • "RHYTHMS OF RENEWAL,"
  • 00:03:59.040 --> 00:04:00.230
  • AND HOW DID YOU COME TO THAT?
  • 00:04:00.230 --> 00:04:01.140
  • - REBEKAH: SURE.
  • 00:04:01.140 --> 00:04:01.290
  • WELL, WHEN THIS HIT ME-- AND
  • 00:04:01.290 --> 00:04:03.080
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:04:03.080 --> 00:04:05.080
  • IT WAS LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN.
  • 00:04:05.080 --> 00:04:06.270
  • AND BECAUSE I COULDN'T AVOID IT
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:07.190
  • FOR THE NEXT YEAR, I DO
  • 00:04:07.190 --> 00:04:08.270
  • REMEMBER, ABOUT A YEAR IN, I
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:10.170
  • WOULD NOW WAKEN FROM SLEEPING IN
  • 00:04:10.260 --> 00:04:13.260
  • MY BED AND BE GRIPPED IN FEAR.
  • 00:04:13.260 --> 00:04:16.030
  • IT WASN'T EVEN JUST SMALL SPACES
  • 00:04:16.030 --> 00:04:16.250
  • AT THIS POINT.
  • 00:04:16.250 --> 00:04:17.080
  • IT WAS EVERYWHERE, AND SO I
  • 00:04:17.080 --> 00:04:18.070
  • REMEMBER SPECIFICALLY
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:19.120
  • SEPTEMBER 20, OF 2011,
  • 00:04:19.120 --> 00:04:21.210
  • WAKING, COULDN'T FIND MY VOICE,
  • 00:04:21.210 --> 00:04:23.000
  • GRABBED GABE'S ARM.
  • 00:04:23.000 --> 00:04:24.270
  • HE STARTS TO PRAY, AND I JUST
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:26.090
  • HOLD OUT MY HAND, AND I JUST
  • 00:04:26.090 --> 00:04:27.250
  • SAY, "RESCUE ME."
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:29.080
  • AND IN THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT,
  • 00:04:29.080 --> 00:04:29.290
  • FOR WHATEVER REASON,
  • 00:04:29.290 --> 00:04:31.060
  • I WAS JUST FLOODED WITH PEACE.
  • 00:04:31.060 --> 00:04:32.160
  • IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I DIDN'T
  • 00:04:32.160 --> 00:04:33.270
  • HAVE TO RUN OR ESCAPE A
  • 00:04:33.270 --> 00:04:35.200
  • SITUATION FOR IT TO SUBSIDE.
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:37.220
  • THAT FIGHT OR FLIGHT WAS JUST--
  • 00:04:37.220 --> 00:04:38.200
  • IT STOPPED.
  • 00:04:38.200 --> 00:04:41.140
  • AND I REMEMBER WALKIN' OUT OF MY
  • 00:04:41.140 --> 00:04:42.230
  • APARTMENT THE NEXT DAY, LIKE,
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:44.060
  • "WE'RE GOIN' ROGUE.
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:45.010
  • DID IT TAKE?
  • 00:04:45.010 --> 00:04:45.280
  • I DON'T EVEN KNOW.
  • 00:04:45.280 --> 00:04:47.100
  • I WOULDN'T HAVE GIVEN IT THE
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:48.000
  • WORD "HEALING," EVEN, BECAUSE IT
  • 00:04:48.000 --> 00:04:49.230
  • WAS JUST A PEACE.
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:50.080
  • I WAS JUST LIKE I WAS FLOODED
  • 00:04:50.080 --> 00:04:51.080
  • WITH PEACE, AND I REALIZED THAT,
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:52.160
  • WHEN YOU'RE SICK, YOU ONLY LOOK
  • 00:04:52.160 --> 00:04:54.010
  • INWARD AND SEE WHAT'S BROKEN,
  • 00:04:54.010 --> 00:04:55.040
  • BUT WHEN HEALING JOURNEY BEGINS,
  • 00:04:55.040 --> 00:04:56.280
  • WHICH I THINK IS WHAT WAS
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:58.120
  • HAPPENING FOR ME, WAS THAT I
  • 00:04:58.120 --> 00:05:00.210
  • LOOKED UP AND I SAW EVERYONE
  • 00:05:00.210 --> 00:05:01.160
  • ELSE, AND I REALIZED ONE IN FOUR
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:02.260
  • OF US ARE GRIPPED IN FEAR, SOME
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:04.160
  • SORT OF ANXIETY, SOME SORT OF
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:05.160
  • DEPRESSION.
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:06.150
  • THERE'S JUST SOMETHING
  • 00:05:06.150 --> 00:05:07.260
  • CONTINUALLY COMING AGAINST US,
  • 00:05:07.260 --> 00:05:09.130
  • AND I STARTED TO STUDY MENTAL
  • 00:05:09.130 --> 00:05:10.240
  • HEALTH, ESPECIALLY IN THE
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:11.270
  • CHURCH, ESPECIALLY WITH PEOPLE
  • 00:05:11.270 --> 00:05:13.220
  • OF FAITH, PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THE
  • 00:05:13.220 --> 00:05:14.290
  • CHURCH, WHATEVER THAT LOOKS
  • 00:05:14.290 --> 00:05:16.170
  • LIKE, AND REALIZED THAT GOD
  • 00:05:16.170 --> 00:05:17.260
  • ACTUALLY CREATED A CREATED ORDER
  • 00:05:17.260 --> 00:05:20.170
  • AND RHYTHM WITH INTENTION, AND
  • 00:05:20.170 --> 00:05:23.110
  • THERE'S A BOUNDARY AND A
  • 00:05:23.110 --> 00:05:26.010
  • FRAMEWORK THAT COMES WITH THAT,
  • 00:05:26.010 --> 00:05:27.060
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:05:27.060 --> 00:05:28.090
  • AND WITH THAT RHYTHM, HE INVITES
  • 00:05:28.090 --> 00:05:30.030
  • US INTO THAT, SO IN THE
  • 00:05:30.030 --> 00:05:32.070
  • UNIVERSE, WE HAVE WAVES ON A
  • 00:05:32.070 --> 00:05:33.120
  • BEACH AND THE CONSTELLATIONS,
  • 00:05:33.120 --> 00:05:35.120
  • AND WE'VE GOT DAY AND NIGHT, AND
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:37.160
  • SEASONS, AND MONTHS AND YEARS,
  • 00:05:37.160 --> 00:05:38.250
  • AND THEN WE'VE GOT OUR BODIES
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:40.080
  • ARE CREATED IN RHYTHM.
  • 00:05:40.080 --> 00:05:41.090
  • WE'VE GOT HEARTBEAT, PULSE,
  • 00:05:41.090 --> 00:05:42.100
  • CADENCE, LABOR PAINS, BREATHING.
  • 00:05:42.100 --> 00:05:43.210
  • ALL THESE THINGS ARE IN RHYTHM,
  • 00:05:43.210 --> 00:05:45.110
  • AND WHEN WE STAY INSIDE THE
  • 00:05:45.110 --> 00:05:47.250
  • CREATED ORDER OF RHYTHM, WE ARE
  • 00:05:47.250 --> 00:05:49.120
  • FILLED WITH PEACE, AND WE COME
  • 00:05:49.120 --> 00:05:51.170
  • ALIVE, BUT WHEN WE GET OUTSIDE
  • 00:05:51.170 --> 00:05:53.060
  • OF THAT, CHAOS ENSUES, AND I
  • 00:05:53.060 --> 00:05:55.010
  • THINK THAT'S WHERE WE START TO
  • 00:05:55.010 --> 00:05:56.030
  • SPIRAL OUT OF CONTROL.
  • 00:05:56.030 --> 00:05:57.130
  • - ERIC: YOU HAVE OBVIOUSLY
  • 00:05:57.130 --> 00:05:58.070
  • GIVEN THIS SOME THOUGHT.
  • 00:05:58.070 --> 00:05:59.070
  • IT'S AMAZING BECAUSE EVERYTHING
  • 00:05:59.070 --> 00:06:00.260
  • YOU'RE SAYING IS RIGHT, AND I
  • 00:06:00.260 --> 00:06:01.290
  • WOULD SAY IT'S BIBLICAL, YOU
  • 00:06:01.290 --> 00:06:04.040
  • KNOW, LIKE, THAT GOD HAS CREATED
  • 00:06:04.040 --> 00:06:05.210
  • THIS ORDER.
  • 00:06:06.170 --> 00:06:09.170
  • SO WHAT ARE THE FOUR PIECES THAT
  • 00:06:09.170 --> 00:06:10.240
  • YOU TALK ABOUT IN THE BOOK?
  • 00:06:10.240 --> 00:06:11.220
  • - REBEKAH: SO THERE ARE FOUR
  • 00:06:11.220 --> 00:06:13.020
  • RHYTHMS THAT I OUTLINE IN THE
  • 00:06:13.020 --> 00:06:14.070
  • BOOK.
  • 00:06:14.070 --> 00:06:14.200
  • I DO SEVEN CHAPTERS ON EACH
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:16.020
  • BECAUSE I WANNA MAKE SURE THAT
  • 00:06:16.020 --> 00:06:17.150
  • IT'S VERY CLEAR, PRACTICAL
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:19.070
  • STEPS, ACTIONABLE HOPE.
  • 00:06:19.070 --> 00:06:21.050
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LIKE, "YES,
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:22.240
  • I PRAY ABOUT IT," BUT, REALLY,
  • 00:06:22.240 --> 00:06:24.050
  • YOU KNOW, GOD MADE OUR BODIES.
  • 00:06:24.050 --> 00:06:26.010
  • HE KNOWS WHAT WE NEED.
  • 00:06:26.010 --> 00:06:27.190
  • HE WANTS TO BRING HEALING BY
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:28.280
  • EVERY MEANS NECESSARY, AND SO
  • 00:06:28.280 --> 00:06:30.120
  • THE FIRST RHYTHM IS REST.
  • 00:06:30.120 --> 00:06:33.010
  • SO THERE ARE TWO INPUT RHYTHMS,
  • 00:06:33.010 --> 00:06:34.190
  • REST AND RESTORE; AND TWO OUTPUT
  • 00:06:34.190 --> 00:06:36.160
  • RHYTHMS, CONNECT AND CREATE AND
  • 00:06:36.160 --> 00:06:37.260
  • BECAUSE--
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:38.100
  • - ERIC: OKAY, SO THERE ARE FOUR
  • 00:06:38.100 --> 00:06:39.040
  • PIECES TO THIS.
  • 00:06:39.040 --> 00:06:39.180
  • SO FIRST IT'S REST AND RESTORE.
  • 00:06:39.180 --> 00:06:40.100
  • OKAY.
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:42.280
  • - REBEKAH: YES, SO REST IS YOUR
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:44.130
  • INNER LIFE, YOUR SPIRITUAL LIFE.
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:45.170
  • IT'S ABOUT "AM I OKAY?"
  • 00:06:45.170 --> 00:06:47.170
  • WE'RE RESTLESS BECAUSE WE REST
  • 00:06:47.170 --> 00:06:49.260
  • LESS, SO USUALLY WE'RE SO
  • 00:06:49.260 --> 00:06:52.220
  • FATIGUED, WE DON'T OPERATE NOW
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:54.110
  • WITHIN A CIRCADIAN RHYTHM OF
  • 00:06:54.110 --> 00:06:55.280
  • SUNRISE AND SUNSET.
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:56.290
  • WE'RE ON A TECHNOLOGY THAT SAYS
  • 00:06:56.290 --> 00:06:58.120
  • THAT "WE SHOULD NEVER ACTUALLY
  • 00:06:58.120 --> 00:07:00.060
  • SLEEP.
  • 00:07:00.060 --> 00:07:01.120
  • WE NEVER REALLY HAVE TO STOP."
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:02.120
  • WHEREAS A SUNRISE HAS NATURAL
  • 00:07:02.120 --> 00:07:05.050
  • BLUE LIGHT THAT TELLS YOU TO
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:06.160
  • WAKE UP, AND A SUNSET HAS
  • 00:07:06.160 --> 00:07:07.200
  • NATURAL RED LIGHT WHICH IS
  • 00:07:07.200 --> 00:07:09.050
  • MELATONIN FOR YOUR BODY.
  • 00:07:09.050 --> 00:07:11.030
  • - ERIC: I DIDN'T KNOW THIS.
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:12.030
  • - REBEKAH: YES.
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:12.180
  • - ERIC: EVEN I AM LEARNING
  • 00:07:12.180 --> 00:07:13.080
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:07:13.080 --> 00:07:13.200
  • I THOUGHT I KNEW EVERYTHING.
  • 00:07:13.200 --> 00:07:14.100
  • REBEKAH, I THOUGHT I KNEW
  • 00:07:14.100 --> 00:07:14.290
  • EVERYTHING.
  • 00:07:14.290 --> 00:07:15.110
  • - REBEKAH: YOU DO KNOW
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:15.290
  • EVERYTHING, BUT THERE MIGHT BE
  • 00:07:15.290 --> 00:07:16.200
  • ONE EXTRA THING.
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:17.120
  • - ERIC: YOU CRACK ME UP.
  • 00:07:17.120 --> 00:07:18.010
  • YOU'VE REALLY-- I MEAN, I'VE
  • 00:07:18.010 --> 00:07:18.240
  • NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE, THAT
  • 00:07:18.240 --> 00:07:19.250
  • THE LIGHT FROM A SUNRISE IS
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:23.290
  • DIFFERENT FROM THE LIGHT OF THE
  • 00:07:23.290 --> 00:07:25.060
  • SUNSET.
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:26.060
  • - REBEKAH: YEAH, THAT'S WHY
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:27.000
  • YOU'VE GOT THAT GOLDEN HOUR IN
  • 00:07:27.000 --> 00:07:28.020
  • THE EVENING.
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:28.180
  • THAT'S A RED LIGHT.
  • 00:07:28.180 --> 00:07:29.110
  • THAT'S MELATONIN FOR YOUR BODY.
  • 00:07:29.110 --> 00:07:31.010
  • SO INSTEAD OF GETTING ON YOUR
  • 00:07:31.010 --> 00:07:33.180
  • PHONE AT MIDNIGHT, TELLING YOU
  • 00:07:33.180 --> 00:07:35.040
  • TO "WAKE UP, WAKE UP, WAKE UP,"
  • 00:07:35.040 --> 00:07:37.000
  • PUT THE PHONE IN THE OTHER ROOM
  • 00:07:37.000 --> 00:07:38.240
  • AND GO JUST TAKE A WALK AROUND
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:39.250
  • THE BLOCK IN THE EVENING, AND IT
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:41.150
  • ACTUALLY SLOWS YOU DOWN 'CAUSE
  • 00:07:41.150 --> 00:07:42.250
  • GOD MADE US, AGAIN, TO OPERATE
  • 00:07:42.250 --> 00:07:43.290
  • WITHIN THE RHYTHM THAT HE
  • 00:07:43.290 --> 00:07:44.260
  • CREATED FOR NATURE AND THE
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:46.240
  • UNIVERSE, SO HE WANTS US TO
  • 00:07:46.240 --> 00:07:47.190
  • COMPLEMENT THAT.
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:49.120
  • SO REST, I TALK ABOUT THINGS
  • 00:07:49.120 --> 00:07:51.090
  • LIKE TAKE A "TECH DETOX" OR
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:54.040
  • "MORNING ROUTINE."
  • 00:07:54.040 --> 00:07:54.190
  • IF THE FIRST HOUR IS
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:55.180
  • THE FRAMEWORK FOR THE DAY,
  • 00:07:55.180 --> 00:07:56.220
  • HOW ARE YOU SETTING YOUR
  • 00:07:56.220 --> 00:07:58.030
  • INTENTION IN THE MORNING?
  • 00:07:58.030 --> 00:07:59.240
  • HOW ARE YOU TAKING SABBATH?
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:01.110
  • ARE YOU EVEN SABBATHING?
  • 00:08:01.110 --> 00:08:02.170
  • REST IS NOT OPTIONAL TO GOD,
  • 00:08:02.170 --> 00:08:04.190
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:08:04.190 --> 00:08:05.170
  • HE EXILES HIS PEOPLE FOR 70
  • 00:08:05.170 --> 00:08:06.200
  • YEARS BECAUSE THEY NEVER OBEYED,
  • 00:08:06.200 --> 00:08:08.090
  • AND SO 490 YEARS LATER, HE SAYS,
  • 00:08:08.090 --> 00:08:10.140
  • "I SAID REST THE LAND.
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:11.200
  • YOU DIDN'T DO IT, SO I'M GONNA
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:13.000
  • SEND YOU AWAY SO THE LAND CAN
  • 00:08:13.000 --> 00:08:13.210
  • REST."
  • 00:08:13.210 --> 00:08:15.050
  • - ERIC: IN MY BOOK "7 MEN," I
  • 00:08:15.050 --> 00:08:16.040
  • TALK ABOUT ERIC LIDDELL, AND
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:17.230
  • IT WAS PRECISELY BECAUSE HE
  • 00:08:17.230 --> 00:08:19.100
  • WOULD NOT RUN ON THE SABBATH.
  • 00:08:19.100 --> 00:08:21.070
  • THE CONCEPT OF SABBATH, TO HIM
  • 00:08:21.070 --> 00:08:23.060
  • AND HIS CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY, WAS
  • 00:08:23.060 --> 00:08:24.230
  • SO STRONG THAT HE REFUSED TO RUN
  • 00:08:24.230 --> 00:08:25.150
  • ON THE SABBATH.
  • 00:08:25.160 --> 00:08:28.160
  • I DON'T KNOW ANY CHRISTIAN TODAY
  • 00:08:28.160 --> 00:08:30.270
  • WHO WOULD SAY THAT "I WOULDN'T
  • 00:08:30.270 --> 00:08:32.190
  • RUN ON THE SABBATH."
  • 00:08:32.190 --> 00:08:33.080
  • WE'VE CHANGED OUR VIEW MAYBE,
  • 00:08:33.080 --> 00:08:34.260
  • TO SOME EXTENT,
  • 00:08:34.260 --> 00:08:36.000
  • FOR THE BETTER, BUT I WOULD SAY,
  • 00:08:36.030 --> 00:08:39.030
  • IN MOST CASES, WE'VE JUST THROWN
  • 00:08:39.030 --> 00:08:39.250
  • OUT THE IDEA OF SABBATH.
  • 00:08:39.250 --> 00:08:41.140
  • WE GO TO CHURCH, AND WE'RE DONE.
  • 00:08:41.140 --> 00:08:42.240
  • - REBEKAH: RIGHT, BUT WE CANNOT
  • 00:08:42.240 --> 00:08:43.240
  • RUN IF WE CANNOT REST, AND SO
  • 00:08:43.240 --> 00:08:44.180
  • YOU DON'T RUN TO EARN THE RIGHT
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:45.250
  • TO REST.
  • 00:08:45.250 --> 00:08:46.140
  • YOU RUN FROM, FUELED BY A
  • 00:08:46.140 --> 00:08:47.250
  • POSTURE OF REST.
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:49.150
  • SO WE SHOULD BE PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:08:49.150 --> 00:08:51.160
  • CARRIERS OF A GOSPEL OF PEACE.
  • 00:08:51.160 --> 00:08:53.110
  • WELL, WE CAN'T BRING PEACE IF WE
  • 00:08:53.110 --> 00:08:54.290
  • HAVEN'T ACTUALLY GOTTEN QUIET,
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:56.030
  • EXAMINE THE HEART.
  • 00:08:56.030 --> 00:08:57.270
  • IS THERE ANYTHING THAT NEEDS TO
  • 00:08:57.270 --> 00:08:59.140
  • GET EXPOSED THAT GOD MIGHT WANNA
  • 00:08:59.140 --> 00:09:01.090
  • DO SOMETHING WITH SO WE CAN GO
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:02.060
  • BACK OUT?
  • 00:09:02.060 --> 00:09:03.010

  • WHAT IS THAT?
  • 00:09:06.280 --> 00:09:07.160
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:09:07.160 --> 00:09:08.200
  • - REBEKAH: YES, SO IT'S HOW I
  • 00:09:08.200 --> 00:09:09.210
  • SET THE FIRST 40 MINUTES BEFORE
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:10.260
  • THE REST OF THE HOUSE WAKES UP.
  • 00:09:10.260 --> 00:09:12.140

  • IN THAT CHAPTER THAT I START IN
  • 00:09:13.280 --> 00:09:15.080
  • A POSTURE OF RELEASE.
  • 00:09:15.080 --> 00:09:17.090
  • FOR ME, IT'S ON MY KNEES BECAUSE
  • 00:09:17.090 --> 00:09:18.170
  • THAT AUTOMATICALLY-- EVEN A
  • 00:09:18.170 --> 00:09:20.000
  • KNEELING POSITION SLOWS YOUR
  • 00:09:20.000 --> 00:09:21.220
  • BREATHING, SLOWS DOWN YOUR

  • CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, LIKE,
  • 00:09:23.120 --> 00:09:24.210
  • THE MIND STOPS RACING SO MUCH.
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:26.120
  • WHEN YOU SLOW YOUR BREATHING,
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:28.230
  • YOU ACTUALLY TAKE THOSE THOUGHTS
  • 00:09:28.230 --> 00:09:30.230
  • CAPTIVE, THOSE RACING THOUGHTS
  • 00:09:30.230 --> 00:09:33.010
  • IN YOUR MIND, AND THEN IT SETS
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:34.140
  • YOU UP WITH GOD, A POSTURE OF
  • 00:09:34.140 --> 00:09:35.290
  • RELEASE AND SURRENDER TO THEN
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:37.030
  • RECEIVE WHATEVER HE HAS FOR YOU
  • 00:09:37.030 --> 00:09:39.200
  • THAT DAY, AND SO I START WITH
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:40.240
  • THAT, AND THEN, OBVIOUSLY,
  • 00:09:40.240 --> 00:09:42.170
  • GRATITUDE.
  • 00:09:42.170 --> 00:09:43.160
  • WE KNOW THAT WE INTERRUPT
  • 00:09:43.160 --> 00:09:45.040
  • ANXIETY WITH GRATITUDE BECAUSE,
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:46.140
  • WHEN WE ARE ANXIOUS, WE PRAY
  • 00:09:46.140 --> 00:09:48.090
  • WITH THANKSGIVING, AND THE PEACE
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:49.170
  • OF GOD FLOODS US.
  • 00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:50.190
  • SO, LIKE, LET'S BE INTENTIONAL
  • 00:09:50.190 --> 00:09:52.130
  • ABOUT GRATITUDE, THEN PRAYER,
  • 00:09:52.130 --> 00:09:53.210
  • LITURGY, SCRIPTURE, ALL THOSE
  • 00:09:53.210 --> 00:09:56.050
  • THINGS ARE A PART OF FILLING ME

  • SO THAT I CAN THEN GO BACK OUT.
  • 00:09:57.260 --> 00:09:59.130
  • THE POINT OF INPUT RHYTHMS IS
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:00.250
  • YOU CANNOT GIVE WHAT YOU HAVEN'T
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:02.050

  • RHYTHMS SERIOUSLY SO THAT YOU
  • 00:10:03.090 --> 00:10:05.010

  • NOW, THIS IS A BOOK THAT IT
  • 00:10:09.210 --> 00:10:10.220
  • LOOKS SORT OF LIKE A WOMEN'S
  • 00:10:10.220 --> 00:10:12.210
  • BOOK, BUT I KNOW IT'S NOT
  • 00:10:12.210 --> 00:10:14.000
  • BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING IN HERE
  • 00:10:14.000 --> 00:10:15.220
  • THAT DOESN'T SPEAK TO ME, AND
  • 00:10:15.220 --> 00:10:17.040
  • I'M NOT A WOMAN, SO I GUESS I
  • 00:10:17.040 --> 00:10:18.150
  • WANNA TALK TO YOU ABOUT THAT
  • 00:10:18.280 --> 00:10:21.280

  • FOR EVERYBODY.
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:01.260
  • IN OTHER WORDS, THERE'S ALMOST
  • 00:11:01.260 --> 00:11:03.030
  • NOBODY TO WHOM THIS STUFF
  • 00:11:03.030 --> 00:11:05.050
  • DOESN'T APPLY, AND THIS IS SOME
  • 00:11:05.050 --> 00:11:06.150
  • REALLY ORIGINAL THINKING YOU'VE
  • 00:11:06.150 --> 00:11:08.050
  • DONE HERE 'CAUSE, A LOT OF
  • 00:11:08.050 --> 00:11:08.240
  • TIMES, PEOPLE SAY, "WELL, IT'S
  • 00:11:08.240 --> 00:11:10.040
  • ALL IN THE BIBLE," OR "READ THE
  • 00:11:10.040 --> 00:11:11.000
  • BIBLE," BUT YOU'VE REALLY TAKEN
  • 00:11:11.000 --> 00:11:12.000
  • THE WISDOM FROM THAT, AND THEN
  • 00:11:12.000 --> 00:11:13.170
  • THE WISDOM FROM HOW YOU'VE
  • 00:11:13.170 --> 00:11:15.140
  • APPLIED IT IN YOUR OWN LIFE AND
  • 00:11:15.140 --> 00:11:16.190
  • SEEN IT WORK, AND YOU'VE BROKEN
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:18.160
  • IT DOWN REALLY SIMPLY INTO
  • 00:11:18.160 --> 00:11:19.080
  • THESE FOUR RHYTHMS.
  • 00:11:19.080 --> 00:11:21.160
  • SO I JUST WANNA GO THROUGH
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:22.120
  • THEM WITH YOU.
  • 00:11:22.120 --> 00:11:23.040
  • FIRST, YOU TALKED ABOUT THE REST
  • 00:11:23.040 --> 00:11:24.010
  • RHYTHM, THEN THE-- LET'S TALK
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:25.270
  • ABOUT THE RESTORE RHYTHM.
  • 00:11:25.270 --> 00:11:26.160
  • WHAT IS THE RESTORE RHYTHM?
  • 00:11:26.160 --> 00:11:28.030
  • - REBEKAH: WELL, 77% OF OUR
  • 00:11:28.030 --> 00:11:29.150
  • SOCIETY RIGHT NOW ARE FACING
  • 00:11:29.150 --> 00:11:31.210
  • PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS OF STRESS.
  • 00:11:31.210 --> 00:11:33.030
  • THAT MEANS SHALLOW BREATHING,
  • 00:11:33.030 --> 00:11:34.290
  • SLEEPLESS NIGHTS, RACING MIND.
  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:36.180
  • SO THAT'S ALMOST FOUR OUT OF
  • 00:11:36.180 --> 00:11:37.150
  • FIVE OF US, SO YOU'RE RIGHT,
  • 00:11:37.150 --> 00:11:38.170
  • THIS IS AN EVERY-PERSON
  • 00:11:38.170 --> 00:11:39.050
  • CONVERSATION.
  • 00:11:39.050 --> 00:11:40.230
  • NO ONE IS EXEMPT FROM STRESS.
  • 00:11:40.230 --> 00:11:41.270
  • - ERIC: AND WE GOTTA SAY
  • 00:11:41.270 --> 00:11:42.160
  • IT'S WRONG.
  • 00:11:42.160 --> 00:11:43.270
  • IT'S NOT NORMAL.
  • 00:11:43.270 --> 00:11:44.140
  • LIKE, THE IDEA THAT, LIKE,
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:45.260
  • "THAT'S JUST THE WAY LIFE IS,"
  • 00:11:45.260 --> 00:11:46.170
  • NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:11:46.170 --> 00:11:47.150
  • IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE.
  • 00:11:47.150 --> 00:11:49.050
  • JUST BECAUSE IT IS FOR MOST
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:50.050
  • PEOPLE DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT
  • 00:11:50.050 --> 00:11:51.270
  • NEEDS TO BE THAT WAY FOR US.
  • 00:11:51.270 --> 00:11:53.040
  • - REBEKAH: RIGHT, SO HOW DO WE
  • 00:11:53.040 --> 00:11:53.260
  • REORDER OUR LIVES?
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:55.060
  • THE REASON WE ARE ALL SPINNING
  • 00:11:55.060 --> 00:11:56.140
  • OUT IS THAT WE THINK WE'RE
  • 00:11:56.140 --> 00:11:58.160
  • INVINCIBLE AT SOME POINT, AND SO
  • 00:11:58.160 --> 00:12:00.030
  • THIS REST AND RESTORE SLOWS US
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:02.070
  • DOWN, QUIETS OUR MIND, CAUSES US
  • 00:12:02.070 --> 00:12:04.080
  • TO JUST TAKE INVENTORY OF OUR
  • 00:12:04.080 --> 00:12:07.010
  • LIFE, WHAT'S RIGHT, WHAT'S
  • 00:12:07.010 --> 00:12:08.130
  • WRONG, WHAT'S CONFUSED, AND
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:09.220
  • WHAT'S MISSING, AND THEN IT'S
  • 00:12:09.220 --> 00:12:11.200
  • NEVER TOO LATE TO REESTABLISH
  • 00:12:11.200 --> 00:12:12.260
  • WHAT YOU WANT YOUR LIFE TO
  • 00:12:12.260 --> 00:12:13.170
  • BE ABOUT.
  • 00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:14.090
  • I MEAN, YOU CAN START AT ANY
  • 00:12:14.090 --> 00:12:16.110
  • POINT, AND THAT'S-- THIS IS THE
  • 00:12:16.110 --> 00:12:17.190
  • CHALLENGE OF THE BOOK.
  • 00:12:17.190 --> 00:12:18.060
  • IT'S NOT A TO-DO LIST OR ADD-ON,
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:20.220
  • BUT UN-LAYER SOME OF THE THINGS
  • 00:12:20.220 --> 00:12:22.070
  • YOU'RE CURRENTLY DOING, AND
  • 00:12:22.070 --> 00:12:23.130
  • FIGURE OUT "WHAT DOES A LIFE OF
  • 00:12:23.130 --> 00:12:24.170
  • INTENTION MEAN?"
  • 00:12:24.170 --> 00:12:25.120
  • SO RESTORE IS ALL ABOUT OUR
  • 00:12:25.120 --> 00:12:26.280
  • PHYSICAL HEALTH.
  • 00:12:26.280 --> 00:12:27.250
  • LET'S BE MINDFUL.
  • 00:12:27.250 --> 00:12:29.000
  • ARE WE ON A DIET OF CAFFEINE,
  • 00:12:29.000 --> 00:12:30.170
  • SUGAR?
  • 00:12:30.170 --> 00:12:31.170
  • WHAT FOOD DO WE NEED FOR
  • 00:12:31.170 --> 00:12:33.120
  • STRENGTH FOR FUEL TO KEEP GOING,
  • 00:12:33.120 --> 00:12:35.110
  • TO GIVE US ENERGY?
  • 00:12:35.110 --> 00:12:36.050
  • I FOUND THAT I WAS CRASHING
  • 00:12:36.050 --> 00:12:37.110
  • AT 3 P.M. EVERY TIME MY KIDS
  • 00:12:37.110 --> 00:12:38.080
  • GOT HOME FROM SCHOOL, AND HERE
  • 00:12:38.120 --> 00:12:41.120
  • I AM, A MOM, GOIN',
  • 00:12:41.120 --> 00:12:42.030
  • "I'M SORRY I HAVEN'T SEEN
  • 00:12:42.030 --> 00:12:42.220
  • YOU ALL DAY, BUT I REALLY NEED A
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:43.140
  • NAP RIGHT NOW."
  • 00:12:43.140 --> 00:12:44.030
  • THAT'S NOT THE LIFE
  • 00:12:44.030 --> 00:12:44.190
  • I WANT, RIGHT?
  • 00:12:44.190 --> 00:12:45.220
  • SO I HAD TO CHANGE MY DIET.
  • 00:12:45.220 --> 00:12:46.220
  • - ERIC: OKAY, IF YOU CAN TELL
  • 00:12:46.220 --> 00:12:47.160
  • ME HOW TO HAVE ENERGY AT 3 P.M.,
  • 00:12:47.160 --> 00:12:48.180
  • I'M GONNA HAVE YOU ON
  • 00:12:48.180 --> 00:12:49.210
  • MY RADIO SHOW.
  • 00:12:49.210 --> 00:12:50.200
  • - REBEKAH: YOU'RE NOT GONNA
  • 00:12:50.200 --> 00:12:51.100
  • LIKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY.
  • 00:12:51.100 --> 00:12:52.110
  • - ERIC: GO AHEAD.
  • 00:12:52.110 --> 00:12:52.260
  • WELL, HOW DO YOU KNOW?
  • 00:12:52.260 --> 00:12:53.130
  • COME ON.
  • 00:12:53.130 --> 00:12:54.050
  • - REBEKAH: SO THERE'S A CHAPTER
  • 00:12:54.050 --> 00:12:55.060
  • WHERE I WRITE ABOUT "EAT SMART:
  • 00:12:55.060 --> 00:12:56.110
  • BRAIN FOOD."
  • 00:12:56.110 --> 00:12:57.150
  • LIKE, WHAT ARE THE FOODS
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:12:58.220
  • THAT FEED YOUR BRAIN?
  • 00:12:58.220 --> 00:12:59.160
  • AND SO OUR WHOLE FAMILY DID
  • 00:12:59.160 --> 00:13:00.280
  • "WHOLE30" A COUPLE SUMMERS AGO.
  • 00:13:00.280 --> 00:13:02.170
  • THE KIDS WERE NOT THRILLED--
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:03.200
  • I'LL BE HONEST.
  • 00:13:03.200 --> 00:13:04.140
  • - ERIC: WHAT IS "WHOLE30"?
  • 00:13:04.140 --> 00:13:05.040
  • - REBEKAH: "WHOLE30" IS WHERE
  • 00:13:05.040 --> 00:13:06.170
  • YOU EAT ONLY WHOLE FOOD.
  • 00:13:06.170 --> 00:13:07.230
  • YOU EAT FOOD FROM A PLANT, NOT
  • 00:13:07.230 --> 00:13:10.000
  • MADE IN A PLANT, SO IT HAS TO BE
  • 00:13:10.000 --> 00:13:11.080
  • SOMETHING FROM THE GROUND.
  • 00:13:11.080 --> 00:13:12.240
  • WE CUT DAIRY AND GLUTEN JUST FOR
  • 00:13:12.240 --> 00:13:15.140
  • THOSE 30 DAYS BECAUSE THOSE ARE
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:16.240
  • INFLAMMATORY FOODS THAT
  • 00:13:16.240 --> 00:13:19.010
  • SOMETIMES MAKE YOU SLUGGISH,
  • 00:13:19.010 --> 00:13:19.260
  • MAKE YOU CRASH.
  • 00:13:19.260 --> 00:13:22.090
  • AND SO IT WAS ALMOST LIKE AN
  • 00:13:22.090 --> 00:13:23.050
  • ELIMINATION IDEA, AND THEN YOU
  • 00:13:23.050 --> 00:13:24.220
  • SLOWLY BRING THINGS BACK IN, BUT
  • 00:13:24.220 --> 00:13:26.040
  • YOU ALMOST GOT ON A RUNNER'S
  • 00:13:26.040 --> 00:13:27.190
  • HIGH BY ABOUT DAY TEN.
  • 00:13:27.190 --> 00:13:29.030
  • YOU WERE BARELY GETTING THROUGH
  • 00:13:29.030 --> 00:13:31.200
  • THE FIRST WEEK, BUT ONCE YOU GOT
  • 00:13:31.200 --> 00:13:32.240
  • ON A RUNNER'S HIGH--
  • 00:13:32.240 --> 00:13:33.100
  • - ERIC: SO THIS MEANS,
  • 00:13:33.100 --> 00:13:33.280
  • OBVIOUSLY, NO MEAT?
  • 00:13:33.280 --> 00:13:34.140
  • - REBEKAH: YEAH-- NO, YOU COULD
  • 00:13:34.140 --> 00:13:35.100
  • HAVE MEAT.
  • 00:13:35.100 --> 00:13:36.090
  • IT HAD TO BE ORGANIC, GRASS FED.
  • 00:13:36.090 --> 00:13:37.090
  • - ERIC: OKAY, THANK THE LORD.
  • 00:13:37.090 --> 00:13:39.210
  • OKAY, SO I CAN HAVE MEAT?
  • 00:13:39.210 --> 00:13:40.280
  • - REBEKAH: YES, YOU COULD STILL
  • 00:13:40.280 --> 00:13:41.290
  • DO MEAT-- JUST NOT DAIRY AND NOT
  • 00:13:41.290 --> 00:13:43.130
  • WHEAT, JUST FOR THAT 30 DAYS.
  • 00:13:43.130 --> 00:13:44.240
  • - ERIC: OKAY.
  • 00:13:44.240 --> 00:13:45.240
  • - REBEKAH: AND IT ACTUALLY
  • 00:13:45.240 --> 00:13:47.130
  • REQUIRED US TO GET CREATIVE, BUT
  • 00:13:47.130 --> 00:13:49.070
  • IN THE END, AFTER 25 YEARS OF ME
  • 00:13:49.070 --> 00:13:51.290
  • HAVING HALF & HALF AND SUGAR IN
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:54.140
  • MY COFFEE, I HAVEN'T GONE BACK
  • 00:13:54.140 --> 00:13:55.230
  • SINCE, AND THAT'S HOW I WAS
  • 00:13:55.230 --> 00:13:56.130
  • STARTING MY DAY.

  • BUT NOT CREAM IN THE COFFEE?
  • 00:13:59.180 --> 00:14:01.120
  • - REBEKAH: SO WHAT I DO NOW IS
  • 00:14:01.120 --> 00:14:02.190
  • AN ORGANIC DAIRY-- I'M SORRY,
  • 00:14:02.190 --> 00:14:04.120
  • NOT DAIRY-- AN ORGANIC COCONUT
  • 00:14:04.120 --> 00:14:07.070
  • CREAMER, BUT WHAT THIS WAS, IS
  • 00:14:07.070 --> 00:14:09.180
  • IT WAS JUST TAKING IT ALL AWAY
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:11.280
  • FOR 30 DAYS TO REWIRE YOUR BRAIN
  • 00:14:11.280 --> 00:14:14.150
  • AND YOUR BODY TO GO, "WHAT AM I
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:15.270
  • RESPONDING NEGATIVELY TO?"
  • 00:14:15.270 --> 00:14:18.160
  • YOU MIGHT HAVE FOOD AVERSIONS,
  • 00:14:18.160 --> 00:14:19.190
  • BUT YOU CAN STILL FUNCTION.
  • 00:14:19.190 --> 00:14:20.230
  • IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU'RE OPERATING

  • SO, OR A HUG FOR FIVE SECONDS
  • 00:14:42.220 --> 00:14:44.240

  • YOUR GUT, ACTUALLY, YOUR GUT
  • 00:14:55.290 --> 00:14:58.290
  • HEALTH AFFECTS YOUR EMOTIONS.
  • 00:14:58.290 --> 00:14:59.290
  • IT'S DIRECTLY CONNECTED.
  • 00:14:59.290 --> 00:15:02.020
  • - ERIC: I KEEP HEARING ABOUT
  • 00:15:02.020 --> 00:15:02.230
  • THIS "GUT HEALTH" STUFF.
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:03.140
  • DO YOU TALK ABOUT THAT AT
  • 00:15:03.140 --> 00:15:04.130
  • ALL IN HERE?
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:05.110
  • - REBEKAH: WELL, IT'S PART OF

  • THE WHOLE30.
  • 00:15:06.030 --> 00:15:06.170
  • IT IS TO CLEAN YOUR GUT BECAUSE
  • 00:15:06.170 --> 00:15:08.200
  • PART OF THAT IS, LIKE, IF THINGS
  • 00:15:08.200 --> 00:15:10.020
  • ARE TOXIC IN YOUR BODY AND THEY
  • 00:15:10.020 --> 00:15:11.230
  • JUST KEEP CIRCLING OUT, THEN YOU
  • 00:15:11.230 --> 00:15:13.170
  • DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE THAT
  • 00:15:13.170 --> 00:15:14.160
  • MOMENTUM, THAT ENERGY, THAT
  • 00:15:14.160 --> 00:15:16.240
  • POSITIVITY THAT YOU REALLY DO
  • 00:15:16.240 --> 00:15:18.060
  • NEED, AND SO I DO THINK IT'S
  • 00:15:18.060 --> 00:15:19.190
  • BEEN VERY BENEFICIAL FOR US.
  • 00:15:19.190 --> 00:15:22.000
  • - ERIC: YEAH, ALL RIGHT, WELL,
  • 00:15:22.000 --> 00:15:23.210
  • LET'S KEEP GOING.
  • 00:15:23.210 --> 00:15:24.110
  • SO YOU THEN GET INTO-- YOU SAY
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:25.160
  • THERE ARE TWO RHYTHMS IN THE
  • 00:15:25.190 --> 00:15:28.190
  • FRONT END, AND THEN THERE'S THE
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:30.070
  • "CONNECT RHYTHM" AND THE "CREATE
  • 00:15:30.070 --> 00:15:31.080
  • RHYTHM."
  • 00:15:31.080 --> 00:15:33.030
  • - REBEKAH: YES.
  • 00:15:33.030 --> 00:15:33.200
  • - ERIC: WHAT DO WE MEAN BY
  • 00:15:33.200 --> 00:15:34.100
  • THAT?
  • 00:15:34.100 --> 00:15:35.000
  • - REBEKAH: SO WHEN YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:15:35.000 --> 00:15:35.230
  • FILLED BY THESE INPUT RHYTHMS,
  • 00:15:35.230 --> 00:15:37.060
  • YOU'VE BEEN ABLE TO REST.
  • 00:15:37.060 --> 00:15:38.210
  • YOU'VE BEEN ABLE TO TAKE PAUSE
  • 00:15:38.210 --> 00:15:39.250
  • TO EXAMINE YOUR LIFE, AND THEN
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:41.020
  • YOU'VE GOTTEN QUIET.
  • 00:15:41.020 --> 00:15:43.100
  • YOU'VE KNOWN THE THINGS YOU NEED
  • 00:15:43.100 --> 00:15:44.220
  • TO LAY DOWN, THE THINGS YOU NEED
  • 00:15:44.220 --> 00:15:46.030
  • TO PICK, AND THEN YOU'VE GOTTEN
  • 00:15:46.030 --> 00:15:46.290
  • HEALTHY.
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:47.230
  • THEN, FINALLY, YOU ARE FUELED TO
  • 00:15:47.230 --> 00:15:49.240
  • THEN GO BACK OUT AND MINISTER
  • 00:15:49.240 --> 00:15:51.190
  • AND SERVE TO OTHER PEOPLE:
  • 00:15:51.190 --> 00:15:52.240
  • CONNECT AND CREATE.
  • 00:15:52.240 --> 00:15:54.040
  • SO "CONNECT" IS ALL ABOUT OUR
  • 00:15:54.040 --> 00:15:55.100
  • RELATIONAL HEALTH, AND "CREATE"
  • 00:15:55.100 --> 00:15:57.070
  • IS ALL ABOUT OUR VOCATIONAL
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:58.270
  • HEALTH, OUR CALLING, OUR
  • 00:15:58.270 --> 00:16:00.070
  • MISSION, OUR PURPOSE IN LIFE.
  • 00:16:00.070 --> 00:16:01.290
  • SO "CONNECT" IS-- I LOVE
  • 00:16:01.290 --> 00:16:03.080
  • CHAPTERS ABOUT FRIENDSHIP.
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:05.110
  • WE HAVE 42% OF MILLENNIALS
  • 00:16:05.110 --> 00:16:06.270
  • SAYING THEY DON'T HAVE A CLOSE
  • 00:16:06.270 --> 00:16:07.230
  • FRIEND.
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:09.020
  • - ERIC: WHAT?
  • 00:16:09.020 --> 00:16:09.270
  • - REBEKAH: FORTY-TWO PERCENT.
  • 00:16:09.270 --> 00:16:11.000
  • - ERIC: YOU'RE KIDDING.
  • 00:16:11.000 --> 00:16:11.250
  • - REBEKAH: AND SO THEN THAT
  • 00:16:11.250 --> 00:16:12.160
  • LEADS, AS WE KNOW, TO ISOLATION,
  • 00:16:12.160 --> 00:16:13.220
  • WHICH LEADS TO DEPRESSION
  • 00:16:13.220 --> 00:16:14.290
  • BECAUSE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE THE
  • 00:16:14.290 --> 00:16:16.020
  • ONLY ONE WHO'S STRUGGLING WITH
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:16.280
  • SOMETHING.
  • 00:16:16.280 --> 00:16:17.100
  • - ERIC: THIS IS SO BASIC.
  • 00:16:17.100 --> 00:16:18.020
  • REBEKAH, YOU KNOW WHAT THIS
  • 00:16:18.020 --> 00:16:18.260
  • STRIKES ME AS?
  • 00:16:18.260 --> 00:16:20.210
  • THIS STRIKES ME AS A BASIC
  • 00:16:20.210 --> 00:16:21.200
  • USER'S MANUAL FOR HUMAN BEINGS.
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:23.160
  • PEOPLE ALWAYS SAY THE BIBLE IS
  • 00:16:23.160 --> 00:16:24.120
  • THAT, AND, OF COURSE, IT IS, BUT
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:27.170
  • THEN SOMEBODY HAS TO TRANSLATE
  • 00:16:27.170 --> 00:16:28.240
  • THE BIBLE INTO "WELL, WHAT DOES
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:29.230
  • THAT MEAN FOR ME TODAY, NOW,
  • 00:16:29.230 --> 00:16:30.130
  • TOMORROW?
  • 00:16:30.130 --> 00:16:32.010
  • HOW SHOULD I EAT?
  • 00:16:32.010 --> 00:16:33.130
  • WHAT SHOULD I DO?"
  • 00:16:33.130 --> 00:16:33.290
  • THAT'S WHAT THIS STRIKES ME AS--
  • 00:16:33.290 --> 00:16:36.240
  • THIS BOOK.
  • 00:16:36.240 --> 00:16:37.260
  • THIS SEEMS TO ME WHAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:38.200
  • DONE.
  • 00:16:38.200 --> 00:16:39.100
  • - REBEKAH: YEAH, THE INTENTION
  • 00:16:39.100 --> 00:16:40.020
  • WAS ACTIONABLE HOPE THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:16:40.020 --> 00:16:42.160
  • TAKE ACTION WITH INTENTION,
  • 00:16:42.160 --> 00:16:43.160
  • KNOWING THAT GOD SET A FRAMEWORK
  • 00:16:43.160 --> 00:16:45.110
  • AND A BOUNDARY FOR US TO SUBMIT
  • 00:16:45.110 --> 00:16:46.270
  • TO, BUT IT ACTUALLY BRINGS A LOT
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:49.280
  • OF FREEDOM, AND SO, WHEN PEOPLE
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:52.080
  • ARE GIVEN A PLAN OR A PLAYBOOK
  • 00:16:52.080 --> 00:16:53.270
  • OR A RULE GUIDE, THEN THEY CAN
  • 00:16:53.270 --> 00:16:54.270
  • MAKE IT THEIR OWN.
  • 00:16:54.270 --> 00:16:56.090
  • THESE ARE EXAMPLES OF EACH
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:16:58.070
  • RHYTHM, WHAT I'VE LEARNED FROM
  • 00:16:58.070 --> 00:16:59.130
  • THEM, BUT I'M LIKE, "MAKE A PLAN
  • 00:16:59.130 --> 00:17:00.240
  • AND WORK THE PLAN.
  • 00:17:00.240 --> 00:17:02.050
  • YOURS MIGHT BE A TWEAK OF WHAT
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:03.130
  • THIS LOOKS LIKE."
  • 00:17:03.130 --> 00:17:04.170
  • - ERIC: OKAY, SO THE FIRST PART
  • 00:17:04.170 --> 00:17:05.140
  • WAS "REST RHYTHM," AND THEN
  • 00:17:05.140 --> 00:17:07.050
  • "RESTORE RHYTHM," AND THEN YOU
  • 00:17:07.050 --> 00:17:09.260
  • SAY, ONCE YOU'VE DONE ALL THOSE
  • 00:17:09.260 --> 00:17:10.180
  • THINGS, YOU CAN GIVE OUT, AND SO
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:12.160
  • YOU CALL THAT "CONNECT RHYTHM"
  • 00:17:12.160 --> 00:17:13.220
  • AND "CREATE RHYTHM."
  • 00:17:13.220 --> 00:17:14.180
  • SO LET'S TALK ABOUT
  • 00:17:14.180 --> 00:17:16.110
  • CONNECT RHYTHM.
  • 00:17:16.110 --> 00:17:17.160
  • - REBEKAH: SO "CONNECT" IS ALL
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:19.060
  • ABOUT RELATIONAL HEALTH, SO PART
  • 00:17:19.060 --> 00:17:20.190
  • OF IT IS VULNERABILITY, LEADING
  • 00:17:20.190 --> 00:17:22.150
  • WITH VULNERABILITY.
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:24.040
  • TRANSPARENCY IS SHARING WHERE
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:26.250
  • YOU'VE BEEN, BUT VULNERABILITY
  • 00:17:26.250 --> 00:17:28.020
  • IS SHARING WHERE YOU ARE, SO
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:29.140
  • THOSE-- ONLY A FEW PEOPLE ARE
  • 00:17:29.140 --> 00:17:31.200
  • GOING TO GET WHERE YOU ARE
  • 00:17:31.200 --> 00:17:33.040
  • TODAY, AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU
  • 00:17:33.040 --> 00:17:34.140
  • SURROUND YOURSELF WITH A COUPLE
  • 00:17:34.140 --> 00:17:35.280
  • PEOPLE WHERE YOU LEAD IN THAT,
  • 00:17:35.280 --> 00:17:36.230
  • AND MAKE SURE THAT'S A MUTUAL
  • 00:17:36.230 --> 00:17:37.160
  • THING.
  • 00:17:37.160 --> 00:17:38.230
  • YOU'RE NOT THE ONE THAT'S ONLY
  • 00:17:38.230 --> 00:17:39.230
  • DUMPING.
  • 00:17:39.230 --> 00:17:40.080
  • SOMEBODY IS ACTUALLY
  • 00:17:40.080 --> 00:17:41.130
  • RECIPROCATING-- THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:17:41.130 --> 00:17:42.250
  • YOUR, YOU KNOW, BAND-AID-- AND
  • 00:17:42.250 --> 00:17:44.010
  • THAT'S A REAL RELATIONSHIP, OR
  • 00:17:44.010 --> 00:17:45.270
  • "CONFLICT RESOLUTION," APOLOGIZE
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:47.050
  • FIRST.
  • 00:17:47.050 --> 00:17:48.240
  • JUST DO IT.
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:49.100
  • YOU KNOW, THERE'S NO REASON TO
  • 00:17:49.100 --> 00:17:50.120
  • LET ANGRINESS BECOME BITTERNESS,
  • 00:17:50.120 --> 00:17:52.160
  • BECOME CONTEMPT.
  • 00:17:52.160 --> 00:17:53.210
  • THERE'S NO REASON FOR THAT, AND
  • 00:17:53.210 --> 00:17:54.220
  • ACTUALLY, WE'RE THE ONES WHO PAY
  • 00:17:54.220 --> 00:17:55.270
  • THE PRICE FOR THAT.
  • 00:17:55.270 --> 00:17:56.130
  • I TALK ABOUT MARRIAGE.
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:17:57.140
  • LIKE, LOVE THE ONE YOU'RE WITH,
  • 00:17:57.140 --> 00:17:58.250
  • OBVIOUSLY.
  • 00:17:58.250 --> 00:17:59.210
  • YOU KNOW, GABE AND I ARE 22
  • 00:17:59.210 --> 00:18:00.250
  • YEARS IN, AND NOT EVERY DAY IS
  • 00:18:00.250 --> 00:18:02.160
  • ROSY AS WE ALL KNOW IN MARRIAGE,
  • 00:18:02.160 --> 00:18:04.000
  • BUT, LIKE, SET AN INTENTION
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:06.030
  • AROUND IT.
  • 00:18:06.030 --> 00:18:07.050
  • GET COUNSELING.
  • 00:18:07.050 --> 00:18:07.260
  • I TALK A LOT ABOUT HOW WE WENT
  • 00:18:07.260 --> 00:18:09.280
  • ON A MARRIAGE RETREAT, AND WE'RE
  • 00:18:09.280 --> 00:18:10.200
  • LIKE, "IT'S JUST A TUNE-UP."
  • 00:18:10.200 --> 00:18:12.070
  • AND THEN, ABOUT 20 HOURS LATER,
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:13.160
  • WE'RE LIKE, "OKAY, MAYBE A
  • 00:18:13.160 --> 00:18:14.280
  • LITTLE MORE THAN A TUNE-UP," BUT
  • 00:18:14.280 --> 00:18:15.290
  • THE IDEA IS MAKE SURE THERE'S
  • 00:18:15.290 --> 00:18:17.130
  • NOTHING UNDER THE RUG THAT YOU
  • 00:18:17.130 --> 00:18:18.130
  • JUST AREN'T WILLING TO CONFIDE
  • 00:18:18.130 --> 00:18:20.080
  • IN YOUR SPOUSE BECAUSE,
  • 00:18:20.080 --> 00:18:20.290
  • ACTUALLY, WHEN YOU'RE CONNECTED,
  • 00:18:20.290 --> 00:18:21.280
  • THAT'S WHEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP'S
  • 00:18:21.280 --> 00:18:23.200
  • GONNA FLOURISH.
  • 00:18:23.200 --> 00:18:24.170
  • AND THEN, ALSO, OBVIOUSLY,
  • 00:18:24.170 --> 00:18:25.120
  • PARENTING.
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:26.070
  • BEAR ONE ANOTHER'S BURDENS, AND
  • 00:18:26.070 --> 00:18:27.080
  • THE ONE THAT I LOVE IS
  • 00:18:27.080 --> 00:18:28.080
  • HOSPITALITY.
  • 00:18:28.080 --> 00:18:29.280
  • I THINK PEOPLE THINK THAT
  • 00:18:29.280 --> 00:18:31.040
  • EVERYTHING HAS TO BE PERFECT TO
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:31.260
  • HAVE SOMEONE OVER, BUT SO MANY
  • 00:18:31.260 --> 00:18:32.230
  • PEOPLE FEEL SO LONELY.
  • 00:18:32.230 --> 00:18:35.090
  • THEY JUST WANNA BE WELCOMED IN,
  • 00:18:35.090 --> 00:18:36.080
  • SO I HAVE A CHAPTER CALLED
  • 00:18:36.080 --> 00:18:37.030
  • "POTLUCK OVER PERFECT," WHERE WE
  • 00:18:37.030 --> 00:18:38.130
  • OPEN UP OUR HOME, AND I DO,
  • 00:18:38.130 --> 00:18:39.280
  • LIKE, THE DISH, AND THEN
  • 00:18:39.280 --> 00:18:41.210
  • EVERYONE BRINGS-- MY FRIENDS ARE
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:43.200
  • BETTER COOKS THAN ME, ANYWAY, SO
  • 00:18:43.200 --> 00:18:44.130
  • IT WORKS OUT BEAUTIFULLY.
  • 00:18:44.130 --> 00:18:45.170
  • - ERIC: WOW, OKAY, AND THEN THE
  • 00:18:45.170 --> 00:18:47.160
  • LAST OF THESE FOUR RHYTHMS IS
  • 00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:49.260
  • "CREATE RHYTHM."
  • 00:18:49.260 --> 00:18:51.280
  • WHAT'S "CREATE RHYTHM"?
  • 00:18:51.280 --> 00:18:54.120
  • - REBEKAH: SO "CREATE" IS YOUR
  • 00:18:54.120 --> 00:18:55.200
  • VOCATION, YOUR PASSION, YOUR
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:57.020

  • WE'RE MADE FOR POWER, FRANKL
  • 00:19:05.080 --> 00:19:06.150
  • BORROWS FROM HIS HEBREW FAITH
  • 00:19:06.150 --> 00:19:08.140
  • AND SAYS WE'RE MADE FOR MEANING.
  • 00:19:08.140 --> 00:19:10.040
  • - ERIC: PARENTHETICALLY, FREUD
  • 00:19:10.040 --> 00:19:11.000
  • AND ADLER WERE IDIOTS.
  • 00:19:11.000 --> 00:19:13.100
  • WE DON'T HAVE TIME TO GO INTO
  • 00:19:13.100 --> 00:19:14.020
  • THAT.
  • 00:19:14.020 --> 00:19:14.140
  • - REBEKAH: YES.
  • 00:19:14.140 --> 00:19:15.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:15.000 --> 00:19:15.260
  • - ERIC: BUT, BELIEVE ME-- NO,
  • 00:19:15.260 --> 00:19:16.210
  • IT IS KIND OF FUNNY BECAUSE-- I
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:17.250
  • MEAN, LET'S JUST TAKE FREUD.
  • 00:19:17.250 --> 00:19:19.010
  • HOW DEPRESSING WHEN HE SAYS
  • 00:19:19.010 --> 00:19:21.150
  • WE'RE-- IT'S FOR PLEASURE.
  • 00:19:21.150 --> 00:19:22.270
  • IT'S ABOUT LIBIDO AND
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:24.000
  • EVERYTHING.
  • 00:19:24.000 --> 00:19:24.270
  • THEN YOU START FEELING LIKE,
  • 00:19:24.270 --> 00:19:25.220
  • "I'M SUCH A NOTHING.
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:28.080

  • AND ALMOST NOBODY BUYS
  • 00:19:35.090 --> 00:19:37.240
  • THAT BECAUSE IT
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:38.270
  • SEEMS SO WRONG.
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:39.290
  • VIKTOR FRANKL, OBVIOUSLY, HE
  • 00:19:39.290 --> 00:19:41.150

  • PREMISE OF HIS WORK IS THAT THE
  • 00:19:48.020 --> 00:19:49.110
  • ROOT OF ANXIETY IS UNFULFILLED
  • 00:19:49.110 --> 00:19:50.140
  • RESPONSIBILITY.

  • IT MEANS YOU'RE MADE FOR

  • SOMETHING, AND YOU'RE NOT QUITE
  • 00:19:52.260 --> 00:19:54.000
  • STEPPING INTO IT, OR THERE MIGHT
  • 00:19:54.000 --> 00:19:55.050
  • BE A GAP THERE THAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:19:55.050 --> 00:19:56.200
  • THIS FEAR OF LOSTNESS OR
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:58.200
  • PURPOSELESSNESS, AND SO HE JUST
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:19:59.170
  • SAYS WITH FREEDOM COMES
  • 00:19:59.170 --> 00:20:01.230
  • RESPONSIBILITY, AND WE ACTUALLY
  • 00:20:01.230 --> 00:20:03.200
  • TAKE PRIDE IN THE WORK OF OUR

  • HANDS WHEN WE TAKE AGENCY OVER
  • 00:20:05.120 --> 00:20:06.120

  • THERE'S A SWEET SPOT THAT WE
  • 00:20:16.260 --> 00:20:17.230
  • COME ALIVE.
  • 00:20:17.230 --> 00:20:19.110
  • WE'RE LIKE, "THIS IS WHAT I WAS
  • 00:20:19.110 --> 00:20:20.110
  • MADE FOR," BUT THEN, BECAUSE OF
  • 00:20:20.110 --> 00:20:21.080
  • OPPORTUNITY, WE LAYER ALL THESE
  • 00:20:21.080 --> 00:20:22.240
  • OTHER THINGS ON TOP OF THAT,
  • 00:20:22.240 --> 00:20:23.270
  • WHICH THEN MAKE US BURN OUT AND
  • 00:20:23.270 --> 00:20:25.110
  • WANT TO QUIT "THE THING," WHICH
  • 00:20:25.110 --> 00:20:27.020
  • IS THE THING THAT GOT US GOING

  • IN THE FIRST PLACE.
  • 00:20:27.280 --> 00:20:28.240

  • OF PRUNING THINGS OFF OF MY LIFE
  • 00:20:47.190 --> 00:20:49.020

  • THAT WAS ONE OF THOSE
  • 00:22:17.090 --> 00:22:18.230
  • "LOSE YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:22:18.230 --> 00:22:19.270
  • YOU'LL FIND IT AGAIN."
  • 00:22:19.270 --> 00:22:21.090
  • EVERYTHING THAT WE THOUGHT WAS
  • 00:22:21.090 --> 00:22:22.050
  • IMPORTANT AT THAT TIME WENT OUT
  • 00:22:22.050 --> 00:22:24.000
  • THE WINDOW, AND THEN, ALL OF A
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:24.250
  • SUDDEN, IT SET A LIFE OF
  • 00:22:24.250 --> 00:22:25.220
  • INTENTION THAT LOOKED DIFFERENT.
  • 00:22:25.220 --> 00:22:27.000
  • NINE YEARS LATER, PUT ALL YOUR
  • 00:22:27.000 --> 00:22:28.160
  • CHIPS BACK IN, MOVED TO NEW YORK
  • 00:22:28.160 --> 00:22:29.100
  • CITY, SELL EVERYTHING YOU HAVE.
  • 00:22:29.100 --> 00:22:30.150
  • IT'LL MAKE TOTAL SENSE.
  • 00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:31.180
  • AND, AT THE TIME, I WAS KICKING
  • 00:22:31.180 --> 00:22:33.050
  • AND SCREAMING.
  • 00:22:33.050 --> 00:22:34.040
  • TURNS OUT GOD USED THAT SEASON
  • 00:22:34.040 --> 00:22:35.260
  • TO LAUNCH MY MINISTRY, AND THEN
  • 00:22:35.260 --> 00:22:37.030
  • NOW, NINE YEARS AFTER THAT, PUT
  • 00:22:37.030 --> 00:22:38.170
  • ALL THE CHIPS BACK IN.
  • 00:22:38.170 --> 00:22:40.040
  • WE ADOPTED A LITTLE GIRL WITH
  • 00:22:40.040 --> 00:22:41.240
  • DOWN SYNDROME, SO NOW WE HAVE
  • 00:22:41.240 --> 00:22:43.000
  • DOWN SYNDROME BOOKENDS.
  • 00:22:43.000 --> 00:22:44.150
  • WE BROUGHT HER HOME FROM CHINA
  • 00:22:44.150 --> 00:22:45.120
  • 10 MONTHS AGO, AND GABE, JUST,
  • 00:22:45.120 --> 00:22:47.200
  • YOU KNOW, SAID, "I BELIEVE GOD'S
  • 00:22:47.200 --> 00:22:49.050
  • INVITING US INTO SOMETHING."
  • 00:22:49.050 --> 00:22:50.180
  • SO WE HAVE THREE HIGH SCHOOLERS,
  • 00:22:50.180 --> 00:22:52.020
  • ONE IN KINDERGARTEN, AND WE'VE
  • 00:22:52.020 --> 00:22:53.040
  • GOT PROM AND PULL-UPS HAPPENING
  • 00:22:53.040 --> 00:22:54.250
  • AT THE SAME TIME IN OUR HOME,
  • 00:22:54.250 --> 00:22:56.070
  • AND I'M 40-SOMETHING, SO HERE WE
  • 00:22:56.070 --> 00:22:57.220
  • ARE TAKING A SURRENDERED "YES,"
  • 00:22:57.290 --> 00:23:01.010
  • AND I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF JOY
  • 00:23:01.010 --> 00:23:02.140
  • THAT COMES ON THE OTHER
  • 00:23:02.140 --> 00:23:03.210
  • SIDE OF THAT.
  • 00:23:03.210 --> 00:23:05.000
  • - ERIC: I FIND MYSELF AGREEING.
  • 00:23:05.000 --> 00:23:06.010
  • THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:23:06.010 --> 00:23:08.100
  • DON'T YOU FIND IT WONDERFUL
  • 00:23:08.100 --> 00:23:10.100
  • THAT, HERE IN 2010, YOU COME TO
  • 00:23:10.100 --> 00:23:12.280
  • NEW YORK, YOU HAVE THIS HORRIBLE
  • 00:23:12.280 --> 00:23:14.080
  • ANXIETY, AND IT LAUNCHES YOU.
  • 00:23:14.080 --> 00:23:15.200
  • I MEAN, WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS,
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:18.130
  • "ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR
  • 00:23:18.130 --> 00:23:19.260
  • GOOD FOR THOSE THAT LOVE THE
  • 00:23:19.260 --> 00:23:22.000
  • LORD AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO
  • 00:23:22.000 --> 00:23:23.060
  • HIS PURPOSE," THAT'S PRECISELY
  • 00:23:23.060 --> 00:23:24.120
  • WHEN YOU NEED TO BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:23:24.120 --> 00:23:26.200
  • SCRIPTURE AND KNOW THAT GOD
  • 00:23:26.200 --> 00:23:28.110
  • KNOWS SOMETHING THAT YOU DON'T
  • 00:23:28.110 --> 00:23:30.060
  • KNOW, AND IF YOU HANG ON AND YOU
  • 00:23:30.060 --> 00:23:31.270
  • LOOK TO HIM, HE'S GONNA USE THAT
  • 00:23:31.270 --> 00:23:33.280
  • IN WAYS THAT ARE GONNA REALLY
  • 00:23:34.020 --> 00:23:37.020
  • BLESS YOU AND BLESS OTHER
  • 00:23:37.020 --> 00:23:38.140
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:23:38.140 --> 00:23:39.130
  • I MEAN, YOU HAVE TO SEE THAT
  • 00:23:39.130 --> 00:23:40.110
  • THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:23:40.110 --> 00:23:42.000
  • - REBEKAH: YEAH, YOUR PAIN CAN
  • 00:23:42.000 --> 00:23:43.060
  • ALWAYS BECOME PURPOSE IF YOU LET
  • 00:23:43.060 --> 00:23:44.160
  • IT, IF YOU LET GOD GET IN THE
  • 00:23:44.160 --> 00:23:45.280
  • MIDDLE OF IT.
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:47.070
  • I LOVE WINSTON CHURCHILL: "IF
  • 00:23:47.070 --> 00:23:49.000
  • YOU'RE IN HELL, KEEP WALKING."
  • 00:23:49.000 --> 00:23:50.040
  • EVENTUALLY, THE DARKNESS WILL
  • 00:23:50.040 --> 00:23:51.240
  • LIFT, RIGHT?
  • 00:23:51.240 --> 00:23:53.110
  • THAT'S THE IDEA IS THAT DON'T--
  • 00:23:53.110 --> 00:23:54.030
  • IF YOU'RE WALKING THROUGH THE
  • 00:23:54.030 --> 00:23:55.180
  • VALLEY, YOU DON'T MAKE YOUR HOME
  • 00:23:55.180 --> 00:23:57.160
  • THERE.
  • 00:23:57.160 --> 00:23:59.030
  • YOU DON'T PITCH A TENT.
  • 00:23:59.030 --> 00:24:00.050
  • YOU DON'T CAMP OUT THERE.
  • 00:24:00.050 --> 00:24:00.240
  • YOU KNOW YOU'RE WALKING THROUGH
  • 00:24:00.240 --> 00:24:01.240
  • SOMETHING, BUT IT'S TAKING YOU
  • 00:24:01.240 --> 00:24:02.240
  • SOMEWHERE THAT YOU CAN'T SEE.
  • 00:24:02.240 --> 00:24:04.010
  • THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT OF FAITH,
  • 00:24:04.010 --> 00:24:04.230
  • AND EVEN IN THOSE YEARS, WHERE I
  • 00:24:04.230 --> 00:24:07.060
  • REMEMBER BEING IN THE FETAL
  • 00:24:07.060 --> 00:24:09.010
  • POSITION IN MY CLOSET IN NEW
  • 00:24:09.010 --> 00:24:10.270
  • YORK CITY, SAYING, "WILL I
  • 00:24:10.270 --> 00:24:12.050
  • ALWAYS STRUGGLE WITH THIS?
  • 00:24:12.050 --> 00:24:13.150
  • AND, YET GOD IS SAYING, "AT SOME
  • 00:24:13.150 --> 00:24:14.290
  • POINT, I'M ACTUALLY GONNA PUT
  • 00:24:14.290 --> 00:24:16.110
  • THE SAME PLANE THAT GAVE YOU
  • 00:24:16.110 --> 00:24:17.130
  • PANIC DISORDER-- YOU'RE GONNA
  • 00:24:17.130 --> 00:24:18.130
  • GET ON A PLANE EVERY FRIDAY, AND
  • 00:24:18.130 --> 00:24:20.080
  • YOU'RE GONNA GO AROUND THE
  • 00:24:20.080 --> 00:24:22.020
  • COUNTRY, AND YOU'RE GONNA SPEAK
  • 00:24:22.020 --> 00:24:23.160
  • ABOUT THE RESCUE OF GOD."
  • 00:24:23.160 --> 00:24:24.100
  • NOW, IF THAT'S NOT THE IRONY,
  • 00:24:24.100 --> 00:24:26.020
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS.
  • 00:24:26.020 --> 00:24:26.250
  • - ERIC: IS THAT WHAT
  • 00:24:26.250 --> 00:24:27.120
  • YOU'RE DOING?
  • 00:24:27.120 --> 00:24:27.250
  • - REBEKAH: YES, I DO.

  • I'M IN A DIFFERENT CITY ALMOST
  • 00:24:28.120 --> 00:24:29.210
  • EVERY FRIDAY, AND THE OLD PLACE
  • 00:24:29.210 --> 00:24:31.070
  • OF PANIC IS NOW A SANCTUARY
  • 00:24:31.070 --> 00:24:32.170
  • IN THE SKY.
  • 00:24:32.170 --> 00:24:34.040
  • THAT'S WHAT REDEMPTION
  • 00:24:34.040 --> 00:24:34.280
  • LOOKS LIKE.
  • 00:24:34.280 --> 00:24:35.290
  • THAT'S REDEEMING THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:24:35.290 --> 00:24:37.240
  • HAVE BEEN STOLEN, AND IT'S MY
  • 00:24:37.240 --> 00:24:40.030
  • JOY, IT'S MY GREAT JOY.
  • 00:24:40.030 --> 00:24:40.260
  • FOR SO MANY YEARS, I KEPT
  • 00:24:40.260 --> 00:24:41.240
  • SAYING, "RESTORE TO ME THE JOY
  • 00:24:41.240 --> 00:24:42.260
  • OF MY SALVATION," AND THAT'S WHY
  • 00:24:42.260 --> 00:24:44.080
  • I WANTED TO NAME OUR

  • DAUGHTER "JOY,"
  • 00:24:44.250 --> 00:24:45.260
  • SO THE GIRL WE JUST BROUGHT

  • HOME IS NAMED JOY, AND I
  • 00:24:46.220 --> 00:24:48.110
