Tim talks with Haley Lynch. Haley has turned her fiance’s suicide nearly a decade ago into a chance to promote awareness and prevention. Listen as she shares tips for coping with the aftermath of suicide, raising a child alone, talking with children about suicide, and the hope that ultimately can be found.
This episode is taken from a recent talk Tim gave to a youth group of 6th-12th graders. It could be helpful both to other teenagers and to parents of teens who want to know how to talk to their kids.

Tim discusses various options for getting started with medical treatment once you’ve decided to go that route. Should you see a psychiatrist, a therapist, an internist, or all of the above? Or none of the above? It can all be so overwhelming, so tune in for a bit of sanity as you try to start the treatment journey.
In this episode, I’m talking to my longest time friend, Brad Mauldin. He’s a pastor at… We met when we were 12 at… We went through high school together and worked together after college and we have never been out of touch for any length of time in 30+ years. It’s really amazing for me to think of our history, and I’m so grateful for it.
Brad and I are going to delve into one of my favorite topics: Religion. Brad’s role at his church has largely been to counsel people who are in need of help for any and all reasons. He’s a trained counselor, and anyone who knows him will tell you he’s among the best listeners on the planet. People just feel safe with him naturally – a great quality in a counselor!
We are going to discuss the topic of how mental illness is handled in the modern Christian church. We will discuss shame, whether God is good, how God feels about sex outside of marriage, and much more. If you’re curious, the church where Brad works is what I would call a new wave evangelical church. Do’s and don’t’s and rules are less important than a relationship with Jesus that plays out individually, not in the same way for everyone. Check them out at atltrinity.org if you’d like.
