This is the One Antidote to Overcoming Fear and Anxiety // Praise God in the Storm

This is the One Antidote to Overcoming Fear and Anxiety // Praise God in the Storm

November 25, 2020

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and even if it doesn’t look like it on the outside, we do have a lot to be thankful for. This is a short devotional or encouragement for you today. I want to share with you what I’m learning in hopes that God uses me to be a light-bearer in a dark world. 

Over the past few weeks, or really over the past year, have you felt some anxiety or fear well up? I know I have. This summer I feel like I had an incredible peace with what was going on. I really can’t control most of it, so I chose to have peace in the midst of it. However, over the past few weeks, I’ve really seen my anxiety well up more and more. But you know what else I’ve been feeling? God keeps whispering to me, “I’m not in the fear. I’m in the praise. Seek me through worship. I am the giver of peace.”

We are called to praise God in the storm! We are called to praise the Lord in the good and in the bad, when we understand and when we don’t. Praise Him because He is good. Praise Him because He is in control. When anxieties rise, our best bet is to turn on some worship music nice and loud and immerse ourselves in it. Peace comes in worship. Peace comes in the praise.

Breaking a Defining Eating Disorder & Crushing Her Running Goal // Interview with 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Jennifer Whynot

Breaking a Defining Eating Disorder & Crushing Her Running Goal // Interview with 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Jennifer Whynot

November 24, 2020

We have so many things to be thankful for, don’t we? Thanksgiving brings about a time of reflection for many. Every day I write down three gratitudes to help me see the blessings in my life no matter what my life circumstances are at the time. But at Thanksgiving, I think I am even more intentional about finding things to be grateful for.

This year has been a year, that’s for sure. But we can still be grateful for so many things! Maybe you’re grateful for your health, or you’re grateful for more family time, or you’re grateful that you were able to slow down. Maybe you’re more grateful for the work you have than ever before! We can turn these crazy times into blessing times if we choose to see the good that can come out of it. 

Today’s guest exudes gratitude even for the hard challenges she faced because they have made her stronger and helped her to encourage others through them. 

From an eating disorder to caring for her special needs son to redefining her faith, Jennifer Whynot has lived through much heartache turned into breakthrough and victory. She now thrives in the face of adversity and struggles she’s faced over her life, and she seeks to encourage others to do the same through theirs. By the end of this episode, you will know you are not alone in your struggles, and there is hope if you hang in there and persevere through them.

LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEAR

  • How she was able to beat the eating disorder that had a stronghold over her life.
  • Why it mattered to her that she didn't quit on her goal and how she used it to inspire others.
  • Her story of turning back to her faith and letting it propel her forward.
  • How she's recovering from a stroke and the therapies she is using as outlets in her healing process.

Why Gratitude Works // How to Begin a Gratitude Routine & Journal

Why Gratitude Works // How to Begin a Gratitude Routine & Journal

November 10, 2020

It’s already November, and we’re gearing up for another Thanksgiving season. November is known to be the month of thankfulness, and I love reflecting on the blessings in my life, but I don’t think it should be exclusive to Thanksgiving time. Gratitude is a trait we should adopt in our daily lives, and today we are going to talk about why gratitude works, what it does, and how to begin your own gratitude journal and journey.

One Nation Divided //How Should Christians Respond?

One Nation Divided //How Should Christians Respond?

November 9, 2020

Today is going to be one of those really raw and real conversations, the ones I’ve been saying I’m shifting to. I’m learning to just let God lead and let Him use me for His ultimate purpose.

I’ve been quiet about many things because I don’t like causing an uproar. I know what I believe, and, honestly, I probably have more wrong than right, but I do know that I’m called to be a light and a truth-bearer, and right now more than ever, I feel that’s what Christians need to do! We need to get off the bench and be a light.

This episode may come off as harsh, but what I pray you hear in it is the urgency to be a critical thinker, to search for truth, and to get off the bench and pray for our nation. We need to be willing to step into the fire.

Regain Energy & GetMore From Workouts With Less Hustle // Interview With Holistic Fitness Specialist Jenni Hulburt

Regain Energy & GetMore From Workouts With Less Hustle // Interview With Holistic Fitness Specialist Jenni Hulburt

November 3, 2020

Today we’re talking about working out to avoid burnout, and I know what it’s like to be in burnout — I’ve been there, and it’s not fun! This episode is very much teaching driven with a ton of great tips and tricks to get you in sync with your physiology so you can workout at your best.

Today’s guest has a multifaceted journey, and she learned that the way she was training was a partial cause for her adrenal issues. Because of these issues, she’s realized how important it is for women to learn how to manage their energy in a culture that really supports productivity and constant hustle in workouts and life.

Jenni Hulburt shares her story of workout to burnout and how it made her shift her mindset into how to adjust as her body dictated rather than just working out intensley every time.

Jenni and I talk about how to move with your cyclical body without depletion and how our cycle mimics nature’s. We talk a bit about the cultural narrative around “more and harder is better” and why that messaging sets women up for overtraining and burnout.

LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEAR

  • How to move with your cyclical body without depletion
  • Moving your body in sync with nature and why that’s beneficial
  • Symptoms of adrenal issues and why your workouts may feel harder than usual
  • What types of cultural and fitness messaging sets women up for overtraining and burnout

How Running Helped This Mother Runner to Break the Bondage of Bipolar Disorder // Interview with 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Marybeth Gardner

How Running Helped This Mother Runner to Break the Bondage of Bipolar Disorder // Interview with 2020 Boston Marathon Qualifier Marybeth Gardner

October 27, 2020

Today’s mother runner is another 2020 Boston Marathon qualifier. She has had so much life happen to her, but one thing she has come to find is that running has made her a better wife and mother and also changed her life in many ways, including helping her battle and overcome bipolar and anxiety diagnoses she was given at a young age of 18. 

MaryBeth Garnder has been running consistently since 2013. Her proudest moment as a runner happened in 2017 as she pushed her (then) 5-year-old daughter in a stroller 10 miles at a 9-minute pace.

She’s grateful for every day of running, and I’m grateful to be able to have her on today to share with you. By the end of this episode, you’ll find a new gratitude for whatever it is that helps you balance your life and find joy, whether it’s running or some other activity. We all need something to drive us that makes us happy that we can use it as fuel for our lives. Let’s get chatting!

LISTEN TO THE FULL EPISODE TO HEAR

  • How she deals with Florida’s heat and humidity while training for races
  • How she’s dealt with and overcome a bipolar diagnosis she received in her late teen years
  • Her advice on breaking free from the bondage and truly going after your goal

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.
