A point of clarification:  During the podcast it was mentioned that research on therapy effectiveness demonstrates the best outcome is achieved through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication.  This research is in reference to treating depression specifically and does not pertain to therapy in general.

Sara's recommendations

Camping highlights (I can suggest many more if needed):

For a less rustic experience (showers and water available): Temperance River State Park in Tofte. The pack-in sites are easy to access an offer better views/less people. Reservations required.

For more rustic but still quick access to your car: Poplar River Rustic Campground. This is on the Honeymoon Trail between the Sawbill and Caribou Trails in Lutsen. 4 well sized rustic campsites (no showers/water so bring your own) right on the Poplar River. First come, first serve.

For most rustic: Lake Agnes campsites on the Superior Hiking Trail in Lutsen. Public parking at Caribou Lake, cross the highway and take the SHT about 1.25 miles. There are two sites at the bottom of the lake where near where the trail first encounters it, and two more sites up at the top of the lake. No water/toilets. The views at the top of Lake Agnes are stunning and its a good beginner back-packing spot. Can continue on the trail from Agnes to Lutsen Mountains if feeling adventurous/in shape. SHT sites are first come first serve but I've never had a problem finding a site. Always good to have a back-up option though (such as the rustic campground listed above). *Carrying in water is heavy, water filtration systems suggested. Hatchets also suggested to get firewood.

Hiking highlights:

Oberg Mountain:  an easy, short loop hike with spectacular views. Especially during fall colors. *Please watch young children/pets on this trail, sheer cliffs with very flimsy wood fences as boundaries.

Carlton Peak: slightly harder than Oberg due to some fun boulders on the trail, decent views.

White Sky Rock: A spur trail off the SHT right where you start from Caribou Lake to Lake Agnes. Very short hike but VERY steep. Great vista of Caribou Lake. Awesome sunrise spot.

Pincushion Trail System: Cool views overlooking Grand Marais from above, multiple trail options.

Kadunce River: Hop in the river (with water shoes or old tennis shoes) and climb up 3 waterfalls as you hike up the river, then take the trail back down. *Best to do with a friend just to be safe.

Grand Portage Falls: There are three sets of falls as you go deeper into the trail

Cascade River: Trail goes a long ways up the river. Go off trail and lay on a flat rock in the middle of the river for a break! Lookout Mountain is at the top

Eagle Mountain: A personal fav. Most of this long hike (7.5 - 8mi) is flat and easy, but the last bit as you ascend the mountain to the highest point in MN is pretty steep. A fun winter hike too if you have poles.

 

Episode 28 - What Should I Know About Divorce? - Ellie Herringshaw

This is what the LORD says: “Where is your mother's certificate of divorce with which I sent her away? Or to which of my creditors did I sell you? Because of your sins you were sold; because of your transgressions your mother was sent away. Isa 50:1

I gave faithless Israel her certificate of divorce and sent her away because of all her adulteries. Yet I saw that her unfaithful sister Judah had no fear; she also went out and committed adultery. Jer 3:8

1 I love the LORD because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy.
2 Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!
3 Death wrapped its ropes around me; the terrors of the grave overtook me. I saw only trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called on the name of the LORD: “Please, LORD, save me!”
Psalm 116:1-4 (NLT)

“Abba, Father,” he cried out, “everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”
Mark 14:36 (NLT)

23 And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. 24 And he said to them, “This is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice for many. 25 I tell you the truth, I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new in the Kingdom of God.”
26 Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives.
Mark 14:23-26 (NLT)

Verses about endurance
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
Romans 5:3-5

Advice for Unemployed
Know who you are
Know what you want
Know how to go get it
Know how to keep it
Activity-get out of the house
Attitude-you control your attitude

Advice for those walking with unemployed
Practical help such as; gas gift cards, grocery gift cards, networking
*If you give to someone who's unemployed, don't do it anonymously. You may perceive your anonymous gifts as being selfless, but it may make the receiver feel unworthy of your acknowledgment. There is already so much shame associated with unemployment, that if you give a card or money or groceries without signing your name, it may feel like you don’t want to be associated with the unemployed.
