meta·​noia
/noun transformative change

“Our world is hungry for genuinely changed people. Leo Tolstoy observes, ‘Everybody thinks of changing humanity and nobody thinks of changing himself.’ Let us be among those who believe that the inner transformation of our lives is a goal worthy of our best effort.” R. Foster, Celebration of Discipline.

I’ll speak only for myself. I live in a culture where quick fixes are popular and opinions are plenty. Where the noble pursuit of inner contentment and confidence remains unanswered by self-help memes and personality tests. And, if I’m not careful, my efforts of improvement fail to extend past myself. Meaning, they don’t touch anyone else.

Raise your hand if you’re with me.

The Greek word metanoia speaks to a change so powerful and profoundly altering that it transforms.

That’s what I’m interested in exploring: inner transformation. The kind that makes me look less like a turd-bucket and more like Jesus. This won’t serve everyone—no hard feelings if it doesn’t serve you. But this is my version of living “all in.”

For those of you who are either interested in, or on the same journey we’ll talk about it. The good, the fun, the ugly. 

-Janel

"...I lacked self-confidence and motivation and never felt good enough; or settled in to what felt most comfortable. I also always wanted to be a mom and a housewife, and I love taking care of others and making them feel special, but in the midst of things I lost myself. So, this podcast launch was for me a big rejuvenation."

"When I decided to quit alcohol, I was clueless. I didn’t see myself as having a problem but, at the same time, I knew something was wrong. Alcoholism runs in my family and I never saw myself in some of my relative’s shoes. I didn’t drink and drive, I wasn’t arrested for fighting in a bar. You know the things, that Hollywood and society classifies as a drinking problem or glorifies."
