Breaking Boredom

Remember when you were younger and you used to get SO bored? Oh wait, we just spent nearly a year on lockdown, of course you remember…Well, you were still younger, technically. I’ve heard it said that “The two enemies of happiness are pain and boredom.” Now, we talk about pain quite a lot with our clients, but boredom? No one ever talks about that. Well, we’re talking about it today. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life, this is Episode 101 and today we are Breaking Boredom.


When we started this podcast,we had one thing in mind, helping people.
Living the Freedom Life Podcast is an introductory product of our Certified Coaching Practice found at I am not considered a psychotherapist, but we do offer help through certified online Coaching sessions. We talk about where you are right now and where you want to be. We help you get there.
Our price-point is at or below most insurance co-pays. We’re affordable. Bottom line, we want to help people. This is not about money or being salesy about Coaching. We don’t train other Coaches or sell a Coaching program like most others do. We don’t herd people through some cookie cutter program. You are an individual, and our approach is the same in your journey. We put together a unique approach for every client.
We have some amazing clients, we have a great team and we have an easy onboarding process that gets all the office stuff taken care of.

We just want to help people who have an interest in being better than yesterday. And because you are here, that means you’re one too.
Welcome to Living the Freedom Life Podcast, this is episode 100. Today, I’m just Grateful.

Keep a File

Remember last week’s episode about what you drew on a piece of paper? Well, it caused a response that I didn’t expect. As usual, I felt like we should talk about it today. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast and this episode is the last of the double digits, we are on Episode number 99 and today’s title is “Keep a File”.

There are 4

If you’ve ever attended one of our classes or had very many coaching sessions, you’ve heard me say that “People only fall into 2 categories; people that either bring me closer to Jesus, or the other ones”.
Well, as any good coach would say, “Everyone needs a coach”. And I’m not immune to that statement. I’m included in “everyone”. Well, MY coach told me about 4 categories of people. I want to share them with you today. So, get a piece of paper and something to write with. Yeah, we are going analog today. Get ready! It doesn’t have to be fancy, just a yellow sticky note is all. Maybe a sharpie. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life Podcast, this is episode 98 and today, I’m telling you, “There Are 4”.

Handling the Truth

Some people can’t handle the truth about themselves or others.
Some of you know me well. Through the years, you’ve watched me grow, walked with me, encouraged me, sharpened me, there’ve been some correction and a few swift kick in the pants.
Some of you know me through our Coaching practice, and as you know, as candid as I am and as open as I am about my life, we’ve grown to know each other pretty well in a short amount of time.
There are some of you who listen to this podcast and don’t know me at all, . . . yet.
And that’s okay. In fact, that’s why we produce this podcast, not only for me to open up, to share. You get to know me and then, I get to know you; for us to sharpen each other.
I love getting to know new people. But there is a risk involved in that.
You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast. This is Ep 97 and today we are talking about Handling the Truth


Did you ever see the bottom of an old glass bottle or can? You could get yourself a shiny nickel if you turned it back in. To a 5 year old, that’s like free money! And that is a great example of redeeming something. You turn in something that is used and you get something in return that has value!
Redemption is an important concept to understand as a follower of Christ, but if we only look at it through “Coke Bottle lenses”, we may be setting ourselves up for a great disappointment if we are not careful. You are listening to Living the Freedom Life podcast and today we are talking about Redemption.

Love Struck

Today is an extremely special day in the McMurray household. There will be consequences for me later, but I just can’t help myself. I have a story to tell. It is a foundational part of my personal Freedom Journey and I want to share it with you today. It has a lot to do with this song. You’re listening to Living the Freedom Life Podcast and this is Ep 95, Love Struck.
