Dr. Barbara's Whole Life Podcast

May 25, 2022

I am blessed to WELCOME Pastors Duncan and Kate Smith from Catch the Fire Ministries today to go deep and vast on how God radically transformed  trauma within their marriage. The couple take us back to a time when they did not know what inner healing entailed, and it took the Holy Spirit coming to them and announcing that they were not the finished work of Christ yet. Now, they stay on a 22 year journey of inner healing in their family, marriage and minds.

I talk with the Smiths about deep and profound sensitivities that can develop along the course of a marriage where you may realize you and your partner have personality and expressive differences. Duncan shares his history of feelings of abandonment, which occasionally get reintroduced through marital triggers. Kate grew up in a home with physically present parents but through their ministry work, they were missing some of Kate’s emotional needs. Kate has an avoidant personality which causes her triggers within her marriage as well.

The two, through inner emotional healing, have connected and welcomed an understanding of each other’s triggers, wounds, and traumatic experiences. They found a safe place within one another through hard, intentional work and the power of the Holy Spirit.
