Welcome to Catching Your Breath: The Podcast!

Hi. I'm Steve.​


I have come to know God best as I’ve recovered from a suicide attempt.


Healing from the worst day of my life caused me to wrestle through the pain of becoming more authentic. All I want to do with the rest of my life is to love others without judgment, embrace people with empathy and compassion, and do everything I can to help others heal.


Besides taking my prescriptions and going to therapy, I’ve also discovered mindfulness as one way to quiet my brain and body when it feels like I’m going to die. I exercise 4-5 days a week because I’ve learned to like myself (and it keeps me from feeling like I might die). 


In addition to mindfulness, and working with mental health professionals, I surround myself with loving people who believe in me, aren’t scared to call me on my bullshit, and challenge me to put shame on notice (thanks, Jude).


Because I still struggle with my relationship with the local church, I am part of an online community of spiritual misfits, where we say “everyone is welcome,” and we mean it. (You can join for $1/month by clicking here.)


In the past seven years, I've invested lots of time and energy in shedding lies I believed about myself and God. These days, I'm getting clear on who I am, why I'm here, and what I want from this one messy, precious life.


Catching Your Breath: The Podcast, offers 30-minute lessons on self-care, self-help, & self-compassion. Think of it as a free half hour of life coaching each week!
