Jim Wilder - living from the heart

In this episode of Talk With Me, I am sitting with Dr. Jim Wilder. I first came across Jim's work as a neurotheologian in 2018 as I embarked on a journey in understanding trauma and inner healing. His books like Renovated, Living From The Heart Jesus Gave You, The Other Half of Church, and Joyful Journey helped give me an understanding of how our brains were created for relational joy and restoration.

Growing up as a missionary in Columbia, Jim saw first hand the results of trauma from extreme violence. His passion and education in theology and clinical psychology led him around the world working with people deemed 'untreatable.' He has specialized in making trauma and recovery models that could be brought into war stained countries to equip people who are trained leaders to those with no education whatsoever. In 2023, he and his team brought the Life Model skills for resilience and trauma recovery to four regions of Ukraine.

Jim has been training leaders and counselors for over 30 years on five continents, founder of Life Model Works, author of 19 books that teach the importance of relational joy for recovery, healing and thriving.
