Episode #24: How Bonding Forms Personhood

Updated: Sep 2, 2020

Connection with God and one another is how we were designed to live in the world. However, we all experience how that connection is disrupted either by our own weakness, circumstances outside of our control, and even the enemy of our souls.


In this episode, I talk with Katherine Ruch, a mother of six who I consider to be an expert on the topic of bonding and personhood.

You'll hear about:

- The enemy of bonding

- Negative effects of separation

- The importance of mother and baby's interconnectedness

- How pair bonding develops a child's sense of self
