In Today's episode of Running from Comfort I am joined by my good friend and brother in Christ Kale Ross.
Kale has recently given his life to Christ and has discovered (as those of us who chose Christ soon find out) all the tricks and traps that the devil tries to get us caught back into the world and away from God.
Kale and I discuss our lives and how we came to know Christ and the spiritual life that only God can give, how the devil is always trying to draw us back in and how we must be strong in our faith in order to withstand these tests, and we also discuss the importance of having God in your life for your mental health.
My only encouragement for any listeners who do not have God in their life is to seek Him whole heartedly as He is always calling us home.

Today's guest is my mother, Sandra Galloway.
I recently had the opportunity to work from home due to COVID-19, so I escaped the big city life of Melbourne and went back to my parent's house in Tasmania for 6 weeks while Australia went through lockdown.
I took this opportunity to interview the wisest women I know, my mother on my last day in Tasmania which also happened to be her 59th birthday.
My mother shared from her life experience and speaks on what she has learned. She drops some wisdom bombs from her sales tactics, her outlook on life, finding her faith in God and tells me the story about how she met my father.

Describing himself as a human guinea pig, Jesse has dabbled into martial arts, philosophy, religion and techniques such as the Wim Hof method and cold showers in order to get out of his comfort zone and develop a strong mindset.
We go deep on this conversation as we talk about how Jesse has explored everything under the sun in order to develop a growth mindset.
We spend the second half of the discussion really diving deep into our own personal beliefs and explore the idea of having faith in Jesus which is something we both share.
We then get to talking about topical issues such as the importance of living a spiritually fulfilled life and not a material life.
This is one of those discussions that talks about all things important that you won't hear in the mainstream media or entertainment. I really enjoyed having this converation and we will definitely be getting Jesse back on some point soon to go even deeper into some of these topics.

In today's episode I talk about what it means to retrain your brain. Most of us walk around and let our past and pre-conceptions about life make decisions for us. So I pose the question to you, who is running your life, you or your past?
Having recently completed the Landmark Forum, I have been left with a new view and outlook on life. I summarise the most important lessons that I have gained from the Landmark Forum and talk about it using examples from life that we all come across.
The idea of retraining your brain ultimately comes down to understanding that you can choose what meaning you assign to anything in life. If somebody says or does something to you, you can choose how to react and the emotions that you feel.
Once you come to realise that you create and assign meaning to everything in your life, then you have the power to be free. Once you are free then you are left with space to create any possibility in your life that you want.
So let go of your past, let go of your limiting beliefs and walk into your best life. 2020 is going to be an amazing year everybody.

Today’s show our guest is Kawa Kurdi director of the charity called the Rizgari Foundation. Kawa speaks about why he started the charity. He also educates me on the history of the Kurdish people, the oppression that they have faced and continue to face as a minority group within the Middle East.
Following the Turkish invasion of Rojava a primarily Kurdish populated region in northeast Syria, thousands of Kurdish families have been displaced and placed into refugee camps. Unfortunately, these camps are severely underfunded and are unable to provide the people with sufficient food, water, shelter and education in order to end the poverty cycle.
Kawa has decided to start this chartiy to both raise awareness to these issues and to help provide support to the families living within these refugee camps.
Throughout the conversation I was educated as to the struggles and suffering that the Kurdish people have been subjected to and still are to this day.
