Connecting as a Family: Asher Morrison, Clinical Psychologist with The Family Psychology Clinic
Growing Up with A Growing Understanding Speech Pathology Podcast
As a parent to four children, Asher from The Family Psychology Clinic understands that parenting can be a tough gig. We aren’t given manuals to navigate our parenting journeys, and even if we were, we would need a different manual for each child. So how can we shape our family life and understand the needs of each of our children? In this discussion, Asher encourages you to ask the question: “What do you want family life to look like?” It is through this question that you will be able to break out of the pattern of ‘reactive’ parenting and start to connect with your children and build a family life that is enjoyable. Asher and Lauren also offer an insight into how Psychologists and Speech Pathologists work together to support children and help them develop essential skills. Want to be on the podcast or reach out?

What can you not do without? Corona Virus season has taught us a few things about that. It has, in particular, taught us the value of relationships, of connection, of community. Loneliness is a widespread and destructive experience.Yet there is a deeper relationship that all humans desire. A relationship with God. Jesus said he is the “Bread of Life” and the “Living Water”. We all need food and water but there is a spiritual food and water, which Jesus said would never leave us dissatisfied. Using stories from the New Testament book of John, Asher reveals how a relationship with Jesus completely satisfies our destiny, the purpose our life, the one thing we simply cannot live life in all its fullness without.
Once a person gets a “free ticket” into heaven, what next? Jesus came not just to give out free tickets to heaven, but to bring heaven to earth. Human beings are easy to pull apart but way more difficult to put back together. As well as saving us from the deadly consequences of our sin, God wants to put individuals and our world back into the shape it was originally meant to be in. Using a beach shade tent and a story about the last day of primary school with characteristic humor to illustrate his point, Asher unpacks teaching about the Kingdom of God and the implications of this Kingdom for individuals and planet earth. Life matters because the Kingdom of Heaven comes through us and our words and deeds.
