Overcoming Addiction & Affliction EP 112

Introducing “Overcoming with Olivia

Co-hosts, LaTan and Amy Elaine are so excited to introduce a NEW ONGOING series with our very special guest, Olivia Cook. In today’s episode, we discuss the concept of what Olivia has termed “landing pads.” Without hesitation, these spots are where the enemy lands again and again on old soul wounds. Here, he continues to wreak havoc on our lives. Does this sound all-too familiar?

We all experience ADDICTION & AFFLICTION in some manner


Unfortunately, many are greatly afflicted by their past. Whether childhood trauma or PTSD, these open doors leave room for the enemy to have his way. But, we want you to know there is hope and healing available to all of us. God didn’t leave us defenseless against this mighty foe. No, the Holy Spirit helps us in our greatest times of need.


You don’t want to miss this powerful conversation with co-hosts, Amy Elaine Martinez and LaTan Roland Murphy. After forty years in her field of expertise, Olivia’s insight and wisdom continues to inspire us to get even bit of healing God has for us. And, that’s why we’ve brought Liv back to help us better understand the process of healing available to us.

In reality, we’ve all experienced some form of trauma in our lives. In order to cope, children cover up their pain in a multitude of ways. Then, they grow into adults with underlying issues resulting in discouragement and disappointment with ourselves and others. And, this happens most often with God. Many don’t understand why they act the way they do. But, there is help for getting real healing for soul wounds.

Olivia points out some questions to help us begin the process of OVERCOMING

  1. How do identify soul wounds or traumas in our lives?
  2. Why does this (fill in the blank) keep happening to me?

Listen into today’s show and hear how Olivia explains the process of identifying, acknowledging, and healing for areas of our lives where we experience addiction and affliction.
