45: For the Ones Who Wonder If There Really is a Good Shepherd. Guest: KJ Ramsey

Author KJ Ramsey joins Amy Fritz to talk about KJ’s new book The Lord Is My Courage: Stepping Through the Shadows of Fear Toward the Voice of Love.

This is for you if you’ve ever struggled with knowing what to share and when to share your experience of spiritual abuse. This is for you if you’ve walked through the valley and wondered if the Good Shepherd was actually “good” because your own experience with those supposed to be shepherds left you hurting.

KJ Ramsey is one of the kindest and most insightful voices I listen to in regard to spiritual abuse. I can’t wait for you to listen.

Time stamps:

[00:02:58] What’s it like to have Ryan (KJ’s husband) becoming more known as he shares his voice with the world?

[00:05:43] The writing process and working out your thoughts in public.

[00:10:12] How do you decide what to share and when to share it?

[00:17:00] How raw should we be when sharing our stories?

[00:19:50] Aren’t we just airing dirty laundry?

[00:21:25] We don’t have to so tightly guard this thing that Christ has promised will prevail.

[00:25:20] Using Psalm 23 as the scaffolding of The Lord is My Courage.

[00:34:15] Where are the shepherds?

[00:35:50] Goodness and love are hounding us.

[00:38:30] Feeling less of a concern to gatekeep about getting everything right.
