117 – The Power Of Communication (With Levi the Poet)


Communication is a beautiful gift that is expressed through many mediums. From spoken word to poetry and writing, we have been given the ability to use our own artistic expression to help convey our thoughts and feelings. Communication opens the door to let others into our minds and our hearts. 

This week, we are talking with Levi the Poet, one of Elaine’s personal inspirations in her journey and passion into writing as an artistic expression. We discuss Levi’s creative process as well as the driving force behind his poetry. We also discuss how God is found in the midst of some of our darkest places and how despite our desire for avoidance, life is found in the center of the things that test us the most.

This week we talk about:

  • Keeping yourself from burnout
  • Being still in your faith
  • The differences in prayer and meditation
  • Moving with God through something instead of trying to go around it
  • Learning about God in the midst of dark times
  • Bravery through honest expression
  • The differences in sharing from past hurts and an open wounds
  • Cultivating relationship beyond polarizing beliefs
  • The power of communication

Levi the Poet

Levi the Poet

Spoken-word poet, creative writer, author, quasi-teacher, husband, and lover of bright coffees.
Born the introverted son of a father whose mental illness led to suicide, and a mother who clung to her faith, Levi turned to writing as a therapeutic means of private expression. At the age of 18, he began to share his work in the form of spoken word poetry. Levi’s broad taste in everything from hardcore to hip-hop has resulted in a unique contribution to the genre that seems to both fit and transcend it. Through blunt lyricism and a captivating audio-visual production, his performances are a wholly immersive experience: an invitation to an audience that might see itself in his stories, and complete them. Levi writes about and shares his personal thoughts on creativity, faith and art through The LTP Weekly each Sunday night with members of The Fraction Club, and on his blog. Levi continues to write from a place of personal transparency, combining advocacy and artistry for thousands of listeners across the globe who resonate with his work.Visit Levi Online:
