Episode 08 - Wounds & Trauma
Through Rough Waters with Zach
Tuesday, November 28, 2023 - 54 minutes
This week, Zach and Kevin are joined by Rev. Dr. Brian Smilde as they take a deep dive on the idea of family wounds and trauma. They unpack Ephesians 6:1-4 and the idea of both honoring your parents and of parents not provoking their children, as well as discuss wounds of withholding (neglect) and wounds of aggression (abuse). They also discuss how to identify trauma and how important it is to get help and begin processing it.
Note: There are brief, non-graphic mentions of sexual abuse in this episode as our guest Brian shares some of his personal story.

Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.1 CORINTHIANS 6:19-20 | NLT
