Episode 156: Holding Space for Tenacious Hope
December 15, 2020
When was the last time you had a conversation with someone that extended past the surface pleasantries? If you’re having a hard time thinking about that experience, today’s episode just might remind you to hold space for a deep conversation.
Episode 156 is a conversation with Julie H. Richards. Julie is a Developmental and Relational Trauma Therapist. Learn more about Julie’s therapy practice here. She explores the questions we ask on multiple levels while modeling what it means to hold space for others.
As you listen, you’ll experience a faithful guide with the tenacity to maintain hope even during the difficult moments. If you’re now thinking, “2020 has been one difficult moment after the next,” you now have another reason to listen. If you’re thinking, “I want 2021 to be different.” Again, you have another reason to listen.
Julie reminds us that the healing journey is not only worth it, but it can also be filled with hope.

Questions to consider
- Julie shared with us a gratitude practice related to her birthday. Here’s our challenge: Name what you are grateful for as many times as you are old. If you’re 55, name 55 things you’re grateful for. Take the time you need to do so. You don’t need to complete the list in one sitting, one day, or even one week.
- In your life right now, where do you need the reminder, “Keep going, God is with you.”
