Why I Stopped Following the Prosperity Gospel // Wrestling With My Faith

Why I Stopped Following the Prosperity Gospel // Wrestling With My Faith

October 13, 2020

What happens when you find out that what you believed for the past 14 years was almost truth, but it missed the mark by that much? If it’s almost truth, it’s not truth. Hold on tight because I’m going to get real and raw with you in this episode and share just what I’ve been wrestling with the past months and how I’ve shifted my mindset.

Today I want to encourage you to continue learning and growing, and when you have a question about something, take it to God in prayer, search God’s Word, do some research, and find the truths. Don’t just take what you hear and run with it, but make sure it lines up with truth.

The hardest part is discerning truths from almost truths because the almost truths are wrong, but they usually sound good and are packaged in an appealing way to make them look like truths.

How Gratitude Became an Essential Part of This Quadruple Amputee’s Life // Interview With Wendy Wallace of One Exceptional Life

How Gratitude Became an Essential Part of This Quadruple Amputee’s Life // Interview With Wendy Wallace of One Exceptional Life

October 6, 2020

How many times have I made excuses because I didn’t feel like it, or I don’t think I have what it takes, or maybe it just seems too hard? But God wants to use our weaknesses, our pains, our trails, and turn them into our message. 

Today’s guest is a perfect example of this. A flesh-eating bacteria left her in a 3-week coma, and she lost all four of her limbs, becoming a quadruple amputee. Life would never be the same as she once knew it, but after a while, she chose to use her experience to empower others in gratitude, kindness, positivity, and faith, and that is when One Exceptional Life was born.

By the end of this episode, you will be able to understand how to use the gifts God gave you through your struggles and why gratitude and positivity are essential to live one exceptional life.

LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEAR

  • Her story of becoming a quadruple amputee and how it affected her life.
  • The defining moment when she decided to use her struggle to empower others.
  • How her family stepped up to help and the lessons they all learned through this painful experience.
  • How gratitude played a huge role in her recovery and still does today.

How Stepping Out of Her Comfort Zone Got This Mother Runner to Her Goal // Interview With 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Jen Bergstrom

How Stepping Out of Her Comfort Zone Got This Mother Runner to Her Goal // Interview With 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Jen Bergstrom

September 22, 2020

Today we continue our Boston Marathon series. I'm hosting moms who qualified for the 2020 Boston Marathon, which was postponed to September and eventually canceled altogether. These women are resilient, and I'm excited to share their struggle/victory stories and why the 2020 Boston Marathon would have been their victory run.

I was inspired to do this because I know how disappointed I was hearing the news of the cancelation when you work for years toward a goal only to have it ripped away from you, it can be devastating. We can't always schedule our circumstances, but we can choose our attitudes toward them, and these runners have chosen to use this disappointment to propel them forward in new goals.

Today's guest didn't start her running journey until her 30s post children. She attempted a few times throughout her life, but it never gained attraction. She never planned to even run a marathon, and now she has seven under her belt, including three BQs, but this year would have been her first Boston Marathon.

She's had to work through multiple injuries and figure out how to get her training in with a busy family and work schedule. Sometimes we push our goals to the side because we think we can't have both a good family structure and a big goal, but Jen proves you can have both, and by the end of this episode, I think you'll be itching to develop a big goal for yourself if you don't have one already. Let's get chatting!

LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEAR

  • How she pushed past her comfort zone and the hard to begin her journey of enjoying running and racing.
  • How creating a mantra sheet helped her stay positive and get through the 26.2 miles!
  • How she found joy in the journey even when things don't come together just the way she had first planned.

Turning What Appears to Be a Hindrance Into a Clear Advantage // Interview With Life Coach Lucy Liu

September 8, 2020

Have you ever felt like something about you is minimizing what you can do? This something lessened your confidence and almost made you back down and quit on yourself. Maybe it’s a physical ailment, or maybe it’s a physical trait, or maybe it’s something someone said about you.

Today’s guest has a pretty unique story about how growing up, having the same name as a celebrity, actually held her back and kept her feeling stuck. Today we dive into that and see how she went from unconfident because of this unique factor to allowing it to help her thrive. 

Lucy Liu is a certified life coach helping women in life transitions get unstuck, beat overwhelm, see clarity, set new goals, live a happier fulfilling life, and thrive. She is an unshakable optimist, wife, mother, easy-going entrepreneur, women empowerment workshop facilitator, motivational speaker, and now she makes it her passion to help other women rewrite their life story. She also inspires as the host of her weekly podcast, The Lucy Liu Show.

I’m excited for you to hear our conversation, so let’s step into the fire!

LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEAR

  • Having the same name as a celebrity affected her confidence in her early years.
  • How she went from feeling unfulfilled, stressed, and unhealthy to living a life she loves.

Why I Quit Facebook // How to Be Intentional on Social Media

Why I Quit Facebook // How to Be Intentional on Social Media

September 1, 2020

I have a love/hate relationship with social media. It can be a great place to connect, ask questions, and network, but it can also be a place of shaming, comparison, and bullying. Our minds are so important to protect. God says to fix our eyes on what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, or praiseworthy.

Do you find yourself scrolling mindlessly or engaging in online arguments that aren’t beneficial? Maybe it’s time to detox your mind when it comes to social media. Detoxing the mind is as important as building your muscles and detoxing your body. I'm ready to disengage and focus on what is lovely, how about you?

In this short chat, I’m going to share some negatives to social media and why we need to be careful with what we engage in, but I’m also going to share three ways to use social media effectively. It’s not going away anytime soon, and, for many of us, the benefits of using it far outweigh the cons of not.

But, how do we ensure that we don’t let our minds go down rabbit trails or let our emotions get the best of us as we scroll? That’s what we’ll talk about today.

How to Find Time to Train When You Have a Busy Schedule // Interview With 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Joy Burke

How to Find Time to Train When You Have a Busy Schedule // Interview With 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Joy Burke

August 25, 2020

It took 10 marathons before today's guest, Joy Burke, hit her first BQ on marathon 11. Talk about resilience!

Joy lives in Rochester, New York, with her husband and three children, ages 8, 7, and 4. Both she and her husband are neurologists, and she works at the University of Rochester hospital specializing in Neuro-Oncology where she cares for patients with brain and spinal tumors as well as neurological complications of chemotherapy and radiation. She also keeps a general neurology clinic treating conditions like migraines, seizures, Parkinson’s, and neuropathy.

She could have every reason to use this taxing work schedule as an excuse not to train, but she’s learned to fit it all in, and she has quite the story of overcoming to share. I hope you enjoy this week’s interview with Joy!

How to Create a Loop Schedule for Your Morning Routine

August 11, 2020

Do you ever create a list of daily habits you want to get done because you know they will help you grow and move you closer to your goals, but then you fail at getting it all in, you struggle to maintain that morning routine, and you feel like you’re falling further behind?

Yeah, I’m guilty of this too, and guilty of making myself feel guilty for not getting it all done every day. We are so good at guilting ourselves, aren’t we? You know what I’m talking about, don’t you?

Well, what if I told you it doesn’t have to be like that? What if you could create a system for yourself that actually worked and made you not only feel like you’re moving forward but actually worked to grow you!

Enter the loop schedule.

Tune in to hear more and learn how to create your own looping schedule for your morning routine!

Letting Go of Offense and Embracing a Full Life // Interview With Faith Speaker Trish Rousu

Letting Go of Offense and Embracing a Full Life // Interview With Faith Speaker Trish Rousu

August 4, 2020

Today's guest is extra special to me. She is a cherished friend, one of my besties, and a part of a group of friends we affectionately call the "Hot Moms." Yup, that's we we call ourselves ... 

Trish Rousu has felt called to serve the Lord her whole life, even in the seasons she was running from Him. Currently, she works in youth ministry and is passionate about watching the students grow in their faith and to see many of them move on and lead their generation in building the kingdom of God.

We dive into her struggle/victory story of overcoming offense in her life. It stemmed from a specific time in her life when she was hurt by the words of some she trusted most. It put her in a downward spiral and left her trusting no one and feeling really alone. She shares both her breaking and turning points and how she pulled herself out of the dark hole she felt she was in.
