Your Identity Impacts Relationships w/Christine Caine

In Podcast by Debra Fileta

Love + Relationships Podcast with Debra FiletaWhat if I told you that your identity is one of the number one things that impacts the quality of your relationships? Welcome to SEASON 5 of the Love + Relationships Podcast!! I’m so excited about this new look, and these brand new episodes!

Because what you believe about yourself determines the kind of relationship you believe you deserve.

But so many things can get in the way of what we believe about ourselves. Christine Caine knows that first hand. In today’s episode, Christine and I talk about the importance of taking inventory of our identity, and what that looks like practically.

Identity Matters

In today’s episode we discuss:

  • How trauma and past experiences can impact our identity.
  • The labels we carry through life that impact our identity.
  • Her personal story of adoption and abuse and how it impacted what she believed about herself.
  • The psychology and theology behind identity and what shapes it.
  • What it looks like to replace the lies about who we are with God’s truth.
  • Understanding your identity in Christ.
  • Verses that will shape your identity with truth (see below in the resources)
  • And so much more!!

If you’ve EVER struggled with identity issues, or maybe you’re struggling today — I can’t express to you how important this episode is.
