I want your love - to be unrestrained - tearing down walls - breaking these chains. -"Unrestrained", Changed Album

If you've ever listened to a contempary Christian radio station anywhere in the world, then you've heard of the Grammy-nominated, Dove Award winning band, Sanctus Real. (Feel free to do the loud crowd cheering here...)

In today's Better Together podcast, I'm talking with Mark Graalman, Sanctus Real's drummer and original band member. A life-long native of Toledo, OH, Mark is also on staff on Vineyard Church. He's married to his beautiful wife, Susan, and they are the parents of three boys.

Mark and I had a great time talking about the early days of Christian music as well as what it was like to start a Christian rock bank back when organs reigned supreme and drums weren't totally accepted in traditional churches. He talks about having no idea as a teen guy that he would end up playing in stadiums around the world to groups up to 120,000. 

Talk about cool.

Then, Mark talks about coming from a line of "strong and silent" men in his family. However, Mark discusses how his quiet persona covered for a difficult battle with anxiety that he's battle for much of his life. While women struggle with anxiety more often then men, that doesn't mean that there are millions of men around the country dealing with "worst-first thinking" as author Lenore Skenazy calls it.

In today's episode, Mark and I discuss:

  • How Mark managed his anxiety when playing in front of tens of thousands of people in stadiums;
  • A practical anxiety-fighting tool that Mark shares that folded up and fit in his pocket - you can use this tool, too!
  • The spoken word poem that Mark wrote for Sanctus Real's new Changed record.
