Mental health is a true stigma, especially within many X-tian spaces and churches. This has to end! So, this week, in keeping with season 3’s theme, I talk with Jill Riley who breaks down the stigma, shares some deep parts of her story, and the power of therapy and family.
Jill Riley, an adopted Korean American, was raised in North Idaho during the height of the white supremacy movement of the 1980’s. She met her husband, a Montana native, while in college in Seattle, WA. After completing her education she and her husband moved to Billings, Montana to raise their family.
Her love of telling stories, blended with humor and passion for people allows us unique insight into the life of a survivor of abuse, serial abandonment and neglect. Jill’s faith has overcome an authoritative, over religious home to become strong and resilient and more grace filled than she ever could have imagined.
A podcast that engages faith, on the margins. Faith that has been labeled, profane, non-conformist, and/ or “out there.” We’ll be exploring the intersections of the sacred, secular, and profane to find God.
