  1. Use Your Words Podcast Difficult conversations can be just that – difficult. Sometimes we are timid or don’t know the word/phrasing to use to convey the thoughts we have. Sometimes those thoughts break our brains a little bit and we may falter to explain what we are thinking – those concepts are in our brains but they haven’t found their way out yet and we are at a loss of words trying to explain these thoughts floating in our heads to others. We really do ourselves a disservice when we fail to engage in these conversations – no matter how difficult or uncomfortable they may be at times. We are three friends who have had these conversations over the years, and while we are serious and dedicated to these conversations we like to have fun during these conversations as well. Join us as we have these conversations - and even if we take positions that you don't agree with - engage with us (respectfully) and use your words.
  2. It may not seem it (with how dire the news is everyday) but we have a lot to be thankful for in America - even in the year 2020.

It may not seem it (with how dire the news is everyday) but we have a lot to be thankful for in America - even in the year 2020. As we approach Thanksgiving day - Paul and Aaron reflect on what it means to be thankful in this time and age and maybe how Thanksgiving day is a disservice to us from being thankful all year long.
  3. S.A.D. is a disease which impacts millions of people each and every year. This week on the Podcast we talk about how S.A.D. has impacted each of us on the podcast - and get a little personal during this conversation.

Josh wanted to talk about the supreme court and the confirmation of ACB to the supreme court while Trump was campaigning for a second term. The question boils down to - is this legal, is this something that has happened before, is this something that is expected, and a few other areas.
  5. I am seeing something disturbing in Christian culture - people who claim to put their faith in Jesus are instead putting their hope in politicians (this trend is on both sides of the aisle) - and this is dangerous beyond degree.

While we just said goodbye to Josh a mere month ago - he just couldn't help himself when the siren call of politics came a calling. So this Monday before election day we are presenting the full conversation that we had regarding politics and the election that we had on 10/30/2020. Join us for this very long special conversation this Monday episode where we talk all things politics and get into the mind of Josh and why he may end up supporting Biden.
  7. Paul and Aaron discuss accountability and what this looks like - both from a theoretical and practical view. We hit on a few themes but one of the things that stuck out is that accountability is a two way process - and it is impossible to do it...

We hit on a few themes but one of the things that stuck out is that accountability is a two way process - and it is impossible to do it any other way.

Since Covid is still a thing - this year's Halloween is going to be different but it is good for the soul to remember what has happened in the past as well.

This past week has shown a disturbing trend with social media and the amount of control it has over what news is and isn't allowed to be posted/shared - even from reputable news sites. This sets a bad precedent - and these sites need to be held accountable for their actions. It is no longer excusable for social media sites to say they are only hosts and not editors - the actions this week show they are in fact editors.
  10. Early voting is going on in the United States even as we speak, and election day is coming up soon.

Early voting is going on in the United States even as we speak, and election day is coming up soon. We (Aaron and Paul) have seen a lot of discussion online and in person of people saying "Well if you vote for X you can no longer call yourself Christian" There is also a lot of rhetoric regarding why one candidate has been lying to people to get the Christian vote. So the question is - can you vote for X and still be a Christian or does your politics override your spiritual beliefs.

In this episode Paul and Aaron talk about what they are looking forward to as Use Your Words enters a new era. We talk about our hopes, and what we want to see change, as well as a few structural changes with the podcast as well. This is a shorter episode, but it is how we are jumping off to our next journey.

This will be a semi-regular thing for Use Your Words where Aaron and Paul relax, have a drink, and talk about the spiritual journeys they both are on. In this episode Aaron wanted to share his own story of his journey of faith, and wanted to find out Paul's story of how he came to faith as well. The guys share their stories while enjoying a nice drink. This week's episode of Bible Belt features the drink: Johnny Walker Blue Label: Port Ellen

We are sad because we do - even though we may tease him - enjoy having him on the show with us. But we are also happy to see him take his first steps in his new career choice as well as start his family. We know (and acknowledge) that this takes a bit of time and with his added responsibilities due to schooling - it is understandable why Josh has decided to step away from the podcast. He steps away with all of us staying friends - and no hard feeling between any of us involved. That being said Josh always has an open invitation to join us whenever he has free time - and he will be back for certain special episodes as well - one of which will be the end of the year episode to review the New Years predictions we each made last year (and of course with Lt if he is available as well). After some deliberation - we have decided that we will NOT be replacing Josh at this time - and do not plan on having a specific third person who will be joining us on a regular basis. That being said we are going to have the third seat be filled by special guests some months. There will be a lot of months where it will just be Aaron and myself - but sometimes we will have a third person drop in with us to talk either for just one or two episodes or for the whole month. So as we say goodbye to Josh - we also say hello to the next chapter of Use Your Words - and to the next adventure as well. We thank you for coming along on this journey with us and hope that you will continue to join us as well move forward with Use Your Words 2.0. Starting with our next episode, we will be switching to Season 2 in the podcast directories. This will be to denote the era with Josh and the era without Josh.

Once a month we try to go down the more spiritual route with our conversations and that was this week's conversation. Originally we were going to talk about a multitude of things, but in the end we got to only one question: how do each of us do devotions, and what methods do we find as effective methods to do those devotions?

That is an alarming statistic - and shook Paul to his very core. Since it is suicide awareness month - these two things align (horribly) together - so we talked about it this month.
