By: Sheridan Voysey

‘Being heard is the first step to healing.’ These words from Patrick Regan sum up well the TV conversation you’re about to see.

Patrick is the CEO of Kintsugi Hope, a charity dedicated to championing mental health and wellbeing, and host of Honesty Over Silence, an interview series on TBN UK. This was an enjoyable chat that got deeper as it progressed. After exploring a little of Merryn’s and my story we discuss:

The two typical responses Christians have when life goes wrong (Merryn did one, I did the other)

Why there’s a time to let a dream die so you can move on to the next thing God has for you

The importance of sharing our emotions (particularly as men) and why a journal can be a good place to start

Why telling yourself to ‘man up!’ or ‘faith up!’ doesn’t work

How to begin to understand God’s role in suffering

How beautiful things can emerge from marrying your trial with your talent

Here’s the 28-minute episode. If you have trouble viewing it go to the TBN page direct.
