How do you know when to establish a boundary in a relationship? And how do you communicate that boundary graciously? Pastors Irene & Jimmy Rollins join Pastors Todd & Julie for a rich conversation about how we can protect what’s most important by establishing guardrails in our lives and relationships.

SHOW NOTES

So Good Moments: 

  • How the “three I’s” (intentionality, investment, and inspection) can change the dynamic of any relationship. 
  • The importance of defining your non-negotiables and communicating your needs with vulnerability.  
  • Why boundaries get confusing for Christians—and what the Bible says about them.  
  • What it looks like to communicate boundaries in a way that reflects the protection of your values rather than the rejection of the person.   
  • How being boundary-less led Irene to rock bottom and how rehab helped her take ownership of her life. 
  • How our emotions serve as an indicator that something in our life needs a guardrail.  

Questions for Reflection: 

  • How did your perspective on boundaries change after hearing this episode? 
  • What emotions in your life might be indicators to protect what’s most important? 
  • Pastor Jimmy said, “I can’t give until I first guard.” What is it that you need to guard before you can give?
