I hope we are all safe and hope and pray your spiritual high and that you know soon, take care. Let's acknowledge.

Within moments of silence this last time and sacrificed their all for us to experience freedom in light of Memorial Day I show is available in your medial also like that are apt to cure any smart phone and or thereby casting today like the Manny the satellite available and more than 11 state, among others, and soon after the show on any podcast plan show deals is suffering the tenacity of the human spirits. The will to survive in the carriage to keep moving forward despite any obstacle with the help of God and each other. We do provide testimonials to let people know that we are not in indicia. The testimony started with me having been a survivor from child abuse well into young adulthood. We also have experts in several fields and inspirational speakers that are willing to help us with valuable information. Knowing that awareness is crucial. Education is necessary and comfort is needed. I do believe were all suffering and we hope to be a source of healing for each other. Nice learning came from God and still other forms of healing are presented as well. Service everyone life can be challenging and always know there's someone always cares, there's always the song that played earlier last I'm ready I Sam Smith and Daniel. We are all faced with cold nights in the heat of the summer. We have been waiting patiently for the beautiful lover, the clever solution, a believer not a cheater and a warm warm-blooded cheater.

It's no fun when we trust someone and our hearts are broken and lonely night. Those who have left.

That is down, but we take the risk forward or backwards. Hoping for someone to love us the same way God's today our special guest is Dr. Richard Hoffman. Dr. Hoffman is the founder and clinical director of Christian counseling associate CCA DTA deleting face faith-based mental health organization providing Christian counseling with over 50 locations and a staff of over over 80 counselors in Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, and West Virginia with his 20 years of experience Dr. Hoffman provides speaking engagements has held various academic positions and has been a guest lecturer nationally and internationally.

Dr. Hoffman innkeeper being in the show.

Dr. Catherine we are living in scary times and now some experts claim that we are experiencing two pandemics. The apparent coronavirus 19 tasks yet to be discovered rarely spoke depths of despair, we tend to believe the answers that you most comfortable and we can make poor decisions based on false perceptions and lack of awareness until we realize there's a bigger picture requires a an understanding if we choose to look beyond appearances we can consider everything and everyone.

So Dr. Hackman now that we have discovered a way to tackle the coming 19 diaries.

Please help us understand the collateral effects of the so-called solution has the cure become worse than the disease. As we face long-term effects that have surfaced as result of this global shutdown. Luckily, many people are elderly for the first time in history report for helping people as well of people who were struggling contract the virus of were the people who report so widespread solution really created a disruption in courses whether the needed or effective old what mental health experts are concerned about as we talk about the possibility of a second wave is certain to be a way of mental health of the people or experience as we see increased unemployment people who are going into significant bankruptcy law, business, property, increased crime definitely increase social isolation were begun effects of the so survey research that is been up there during the couple of the Lord definitely is.

People experience anxiety. There also experiencing increased depression always sees the third 33% increase use of psychiatric medication.

There is interesting shows that the spheres can be widespread long-term so on the demonstrated the 15 to 20% of people are indicating right now that never can be comfortable coming back to their workplace. All or your big party without significant your so the way we handle has had a significant impact on people's mental health people. Because of this fear whether we was director and people are afraid to go back to work. Also be afraid to continue functioning normally. This depression on and be prolonged. The circumstances incurred and will I find it difficult to find happiness and hope again report the go. Oh what you're doing or the intervention that we've chosen is going to be felt for your that we were talking about are financially but I think it many other aspects were you feel possibly I just want to mention there is a study that I so I think you mentioned but the numbers are very hard, like it says 75,000 Americans are at risk of dying from overdose or suicide due to the coronavirus despair.

So I guess that's additional problem. I learned this morning that I forget what state it was that there was more deaths from overdose then covered 19 that so already starting to show that people are dying from despair more than their dying 19 deaths and I wish people would take into account all night. That's not not just the company 19. The question looks numbers are definitely what I want to start talking about because God is all about. Just some of you continue talking with Dr. shutdown and living you 30 life can bring many difficult situations, domestic violence, addictions, poverty, and sexual abuse by your loved ones. The issue is not stay there, but to overcome all obstacles and show that with the love of God, your husband and your family. You can succeed.

Love is the answer.

God is the key work reveals baby combos life, a warrior who didn't give up and achieve the dream of her life. You can get to know more about her at her story on God is the key or buying her book on's belief that here. Yes, thank you for doing this. Remember that you can listen to the radio show throw out the cure with Amy, or later as a podcast. Please subscribe whatever you find one that just played let your eyes weekend and I love it is about seeing past what you did over time easier. So there your eyes and there's so much more than I wanted, and we can comprehend unconditional love means we believe we see beyond appearances. The popular IDS people with domestic stances define okay.

I also want to think about the contest we started to let us know suggestions for a song that we can play on the show through our contact us page of God is the and if we play, you will receive $25 gift certificate. Thank you for everybody who submitted songs. Local songs are getting picked. Sorry about that but Amy fixed them based on the guest. What is the topic of the show and I don't know for many other reasons that you don't know me but please keep on trying talking to Dr. H Hart Hoffman deal with serious effects stay at home orders that as well as our perception after happening. We discussed areas more drug addiction more alcohol abuse.

How can we resolve this is going to disappear is over and what do you suggest can be done well.

I think stories that we walked first started the wave appeared people and their stories from from the country first came from New York and was very important one in which there was an elderly woman you emergency room after being physically assaulted by another patient and New York Post, the person who assaulted the elderly woman she wasn't keeping her social and horrible story, but one that is indicating somebody really caught up stock fear point where controls the second-story from Washington. Also the story of an elderly woman five years old and a personal care home and she contract scope and during that time they were still letting people in the there still letting people so they let her family, and and during that visit there all along you get up here but the something you really touches her heart and ultimately be the elderly woman covers and the euro off but many people are recovering and they asked the woman who recovers will want You I knew I had to live. I wanted to see my grandchildren. I wanted wanted to hug and and that's what kept me living one day and so in the barrio person has something bigger than the virus here that help them look grab hold and overcome. Barak you know we we see these two stories I think it's a good metaphor for working to get through this something bigger than fear. We need to change only thinking we need to change a perception we need to stop thinking, doing, and trust God and have faith think there's hope and focus on the PDF life sometimes to just concentrate on the things they call our attention. I guess there's some experience in which God that's coming out this summer. It's good that can still come now, and I think that I keep in mind plays a big part on whether or not you survive anything if it you your thinking negative just don't have chance of survival and seven think the first thing that we need to do is is resolve the fear. Fear of the unknown fear by race. The fear that there's no tomorrow that my life is over, that this is going to last forever. There's no and so I might as well escape I self-medicating or even know it's terrible and helped and you know the one I keep playing this same scenario keeps changing and keeps getting better, people are still hard about letting go of that fear. So what I how can we help those fear because with me. I have no fear of anything. Even if I die, that's God's will.

I'm okay with it now. That's God's will and is was perfect. Even if I don't understand, that isn't everybody there people out there hurting their people out that I know don't know what it turns and I mean even though it's getting better what can he tell these people really want to reach out. I'm not worried about me and my family worried about thinking about how there's so many others out there suffering you up so we do this every day Christian, Ohio.

It was Virginia we have over 50 locations, 80 counselors thousand people come to every year for capital and so we develop models intervention to help people feel with the pandemic emotionally. One thing we've done is we've developed an acronym called hope the people the user we want them on hope so hope stands for page you.

We've all been hurt in some way by this pandemic. We have to identify that and get real about things that were struggling to reach out somebody who's going to care with about where we've been hurt. Oh, like you mentioned mine focus that we have to develop so even the worst crises of life and that no what is helps people, not just let the soft segment.

Please give us a call if you want to ask the question, when I think 634 through related only welcome back and thanks for the member live every Saturday at 1 PM Eastern on your radio website that is also no social media channels. Anyway, all shows are available after that is a video podcast of your podcast.

Just look for the cure with Amy, one please subscribe so you don't miss an episode just played far behind Patty and 18. I these difficult times sending us and I think it's well. These tribulations try this closer to God when we let someone we are patient at change and forgetting with mistakes.

We expect hardship as a part of everyday life we know God essence CS any different cc really are shining in our eyes. If we hold on to what we believe.

We trust in God, who will always be our friends, even if we take our time, God will always be there waiting. He is never far behind. But if you want to say that.

Don't worry. Don't give up. Also the pandemic time also want to remind you about the contest. We started sound announcer upon the so let us know suggestions song that we can play on the show through our contact us page. God is the and if we played you will receive a $25 gift. Thank you Dr. Hoffman discussing how to deal with increased mental health issues student to stay, taking everyone into account then please tell me to get staff to help model it sounds wonderful. We started with that you know we do though. I think the PIH we were on optimism and audio.

Each healing, healing, optimism, perseverance, and is paternity.

You will quickly explain the easy to remember. But you wanted to find where you need to feel we've all been hurt, optimism, you were not talking about the power of positive reference Philippians chapter 4 verses four through eight which says rejoice in the Lord always again I will say, rejoice. Let your gentle spirit know all that year. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will bark your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus fine brother brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, good reputation.

If there is any action anything worthy of praise dwell on they'll summarize this verse.

Are these verses.

When we think of optimism.

We think that the Lord is near, even in times of crisis, with so there is opportunity for something good. Even the come out of crisis because the Lord is work with. So we have to even in the midst of the pandemic. Look for these offer look for ways to rise up, look for ways to help people look for ways to care crisis in the Lord, who is near will provide these things that were that's LLP perseverance is not just sufficient.

Think about but we have to be focused on active on our knowledge that the Lord is we have to look for action steps every day and that will bring us what makes all this possible, which is eternity.

You have to have perspective, Romans eight 3839 health. I am convinced that life angels, or principalities, nor things present, nor things to come for powers, nor height nor depth, any other created thing will be able to separate the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our this is the kind of perspective that gives us a way to look past few that we are with the Lord you have accepted Jesus Christ tomorrow is our Lord and Savior.

He is the one that we serve at the end of the reasons that we that he will be with us. Life and the backs which means that not break our connection terrible thing.

None of us want to face and the pandemic basis of the fear is that you can get the Christians, our eternal perspective, what will and to deal with this pandemic successfully. That is what is required, we could very easily get stock in this fear that the visible monster to catch us just I just wanted to say that the reality of you dying from.this much, much less than what was expected. Sorry Sgt. will absolutely board you know it and really if you look at the, the, you know, we often don't look past the headline headlines are scary, you know. But if you really keep you know you get a whole different perspective. If you look past the initial fear ethics argument differently and board reminding is a person looking for the fear of headlines.

Somebody was looking deeper and not exactly my point that we have this eternal perspective. We look past the initial fear and our perspective is that the power of the working that allows us to. That is how we hold onto that is the power of an eternal perspective.

No, what I would talk about that is part of the problem that were really caught up in here is not as much about pandemic but our inability to hold onto hope to have this eternal perspective. Imagine that you don't know about eternity that you don't have peace that Jesus Christ as your Lord, how on earth would you be able to handle the fear of or the fear of an be honest we deal with this every day. You know that would be you have the last thing that you know that we know as believers is what we see.

Install one 39 first team because your eyes saw my unformed body all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them be and to look at the meaning of this is God's word and what we hear in Psalm 139. You know, we come to a reality that the Lord has control over when we live.yes we need to make wise choices, but we cannot guarantee 100% on any day and a lot of the headlines that we see play on on on a fear that you were not in touch with some of us might not even be able to function and CHILDREN. We need to connection with God. We need each. We need to connection with the chapter gives each other so that we can be there for each other at my only one and they like to talk about after the break is importance of reestablishing worship I mean about any meetings about things that people can help in cells which got up alcohol can go by read if you need help now I know where shop now any meetings. No AA meetings let people know that I left anything that we need each other, struggling from loneliness, 35, life can bring many difficult situations, domestic violence, addictions, poverty and even sexual abuse by your loved ones. The issue is not stay there, but to overcome all obstacles and show that with the love of God, your husband and your family. You can succeed.

Love is the answer.

God is the key word reveals any combos, life, a warrior who didn't give up and achieve the dream of her life.

That's When It's Most Needed. Sure Will Rebut 14 Yesterday the President Churches in Vermont That Life Operation in Our Society. As Believers We Know That Our Connection to the Church Is Our Connection to Spiritual Family.

You Know on Expert Way on How the Virus What I Can Say Is You Can Look past the Fear Look past the Headline. Your Obligation to Maintain Our Connection to Our Spiritual Family to Enter into Corporate Portion of Our Responsibility to Verify God Wherever We Are Together and Develop a Way to Say, for Instance, Our Church Is Calling Us Right Now to the Beat at Home Churches That We Have Church in Our Driveway.

People in That One Walmart That's Open up a Bunch of Other Stores That Sell the Same Thing That the ADS Not to Spread the Fire Inspector Only Allowing A Few Places Open so That Everybody Can Go to the Same Place and That the Purpose I'm Sorry You're Gonna Encourage and Strengthen More People in One Place Because of Such Little Places Open so Fast I Wouldn't Say No News Safety Measures of Visiting Your Safety Measures. You Can Wear a Mask That Is Guidelines CDC Guidelines Those Guidelines about Epidemiologist Followed Him, but What Incredible Is That They Can Open Casinos and Other Things like Fine Cotton Pardons.

Some People Can't Live without, I Know I Can Anything I He's Everywhere Have To Be on the Insurance That I like to Hear the Songs I like to Feel the Spirit Right to Receive Communion.

That's Something That's Irreplaceable and That's Just Essential for Those Who Believe Certain Counselor.

Scott Is Also Very Important to You Very Much for You to Write on What You're Saying, You Know. The Risk Going to Walmart and You Risk Going to Church Right Away Value Personally for Myself Six Years Old, You Really Understanding All the Components of the UI Could Be in a Group of People and I Do Not Worry Living in a Free Country.

I Want the Choice on on How I Want to Take Risk and You Don't Understand the People You Know If I Was 70. I Would Feel Much Differently or If I Hadn't Underlying Health Condition, You Know. But Even with CDC Guidelines As Account Business, We Have To Follow Those Guidelines Do Their Way. We Showed We Would Equal in God -sized Patient Pick Winners and Losers Whose Essential and Who's Not Every Person Shall Every Family Is Essential Anything Really Care Enough about Ourselves and Others That We Will Do the Right Thing. Have We Not Realize That the D-Link That Has Been Contacted by Anyone As Far Has Not Occurred Enough That the Debbie Town's People Start Looking up yet God Is with Us Right with That Perspective I Think That Risk Weighed Carefully and Correctly Deal with Eternal Perspective without Being Connected Your Heart to God, If You're More Connected Anxiety. It Just Makes Things Unworkable.

There Is a Way to Meet at the Church You That Say and Are Leaders You Know All the People the Christian Community Have Have To Weigh the Risk Forward on with the Church and I Know What It's like to See You like the Skinny Things, We Have Only Make Eye Try Him Anyway Even If You Don't Feel Him.
