MercyTalk Podcast: Setting Boundaries as a Helper

When someone you love is hurting, it's easy to lose sight of where your role as a helper begins and ends. What boundaries do you need in place? How do you make sure you are keeping yourself emotionally and spiritually healthy in the face of other people's needs? On today's podcast, we'll talk about the importance of boundaries, finding your identity in Christ instead of in helping people, and ways you can stay healthy as a leader.

MercyTalk Podcast: Moving Beyond Behavior

At Mercy, we believe there's always a reason behind the destructive behaviors people display in their lives. Rather than deal with issues on the purely behavioral level, we want to find the root underneath why the behavior is happening so true freedom can be found. What is going on in the heart? Jesus shows us that healing in a person's life starts with the roots in that person's heart, and when the heart is healed, behavior changes. Listen in as host Melanie Carter and staff member Jen Otero discuss this important topic.
