Ep. 97 | Why The Spiritual Discipline of Waiting on God and Resting in Him is Necessary for Goal-Driven Women

October 19, 2021

Why is waiting so difficult? Can it actually benefit us to wait? As a goal-driven woman, the spiritual discipline of waiting is so, so hard! Is there a way to make it easier?

Do you feel it? The hurry? The hustle? The busyness of life? But what happens when you get stuck waiting on something, and you can’t just hustle through it? That was me this past year. After moving to Colorado, my husband lost his full-time job two weeks later, and we quickly began the waiting phase. And we kept waiting, and waiting, and waiting. 

Sometimes I questioned where God was in all of this, but then I remembered just how He moved us where He did and all the provisions He had for us along the way. But it didn’t mean we didn’t have to wait. 

What is it that we should do in the waiting to make things a bit easier on ourselves? Well, that’s what we’re diving into today, and I’m bringing marriage and family therapist Jessica Hayes back on the show to share with us just how we can incorporate a few disciplines into our waiting that will help us grow personally and spiritually.

Ep. 96 | Life after Childhood Trauma - Resolving the Past to Move Forward in Personal Relationships

Ep. 96 | Life after Childhood Trauma - Resolving the Past to Move Forward in Personal Relationships

October 14, 2021

Hey friend, today’s topic is pretty heavy. We are talking about some childhood trauma in the form of abuse, and I want to prepare you for that in case you have kids in the room and want to wait to listen to this when no little ears are present. This is a tough subject, but I also feel like it’s important to talk about. Joric McLean went through the unimaginable not only with his mom, but also with his stepmom from a very young age. His story is powerful. It will make you angry.

It will make you cry, and it will make you feel all the emotions in between. We don’t go into detail about the trauma, but if you want to hear more about his specific struggle/victory story, I encourage you to pick up a copy of the Lemonade Stand 2 anthology.

He told me no question is off-limits today, so we’re going to dive deep into his struggles, the mental shifts he made, how he made the best of the cards he was dealt, and the biggest lessons he learned from his childhood experience. We also talk about how to help our men open up about any trauma they may have encountered so our relationships can thrive and they don’t have to feel like they have to bottle up the pain and can move forward from their past into a thriving future.

One of Joric’s missions is to encourage others to get help sooner rather than later so those old wounds of the past doing creep into adult relationships with spouses, partners, or kids. It’s important to resolve the past or at least come to grips with it so you don’t have to keep reliving it through current or future relationships.

The 2021 Boston Marathon is a wrap! This was the first-ever (and possibly only) fall Boston Marathon, and it was quite an experience! There were highs, there were lows, and everything in between. The weather was almost perfect, and the crowds did not disappoint. Find out why this was my SLOWEST marathon ever and what my favorite sign was along the racecourse :)

Ep. 94 | What is Your Victory Run?

October 7, 2021

I'm headed to Boston today to prepare for the Boston Marathon... a dream come true! This is deemed my victory run--and it's been years of waiting. Today I'll share what that means to me, what a victory run is, and how you can have your own victory run (no need to be a runner). If you're in waiting right now and just hoping that you'll come out the other side of your struggle, this episode is for you.

Ep. 93 | Letting Go of Toxic Relationships and Rising Again - It is Possible!

Ep. 93 | Letting Go of Toxic Relationships and Rising Again - It is Possible!

October 5, 2021

The story I’m sharing today is about a phoenix rising - Tina Krebs rose out of the ashes of her dark, toxic past and has flourished in a beautiful future. After getting up the courage to leave not just one, but two toxic relationships, she slowly picked up the pieces and put together a new life for her and her two children, one filled with renewal and hope and a new beginning.

This episode is not a light topic. We go pretty deep and heavy, and you may not want your children listening in on the topics we are covering. Tina has endured a very difficult past filled with lies, cheating, and abuse. It’s hard to tell the story without some of those details seeping in. 

I hope her story encourages you to be brave and fight and stand up for what’s right. You never know when and if someone else will need you to stand by them.

Ep 92 | Trust in Transition - Heartfelt Chats

Ep 92 | Trust in Transition - Heartfelt Chats

September 30, 2021

We bought a house! What does it mean to trust while going through transition or change? What does it mean to trust while waiting for circumstances to turn around? Today I share a little about what trust has meant to me this past year as we encountered multiple trials and transitions. One thing I have realized is that waiting on God's timing is so worth it.

Ep. 91 | What Does Walking in Love and Justice Mean from a Biblical Standpoint?

Ep. 91 | What Does Walking in Love and Justice Mean from a Biblical Standpoint?

September 28, 2021

Ecclesiastes 1:9 says, “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” 

What do we need to remember? The Bible is our standard, and it has outlasted time. We don’t get to pick and choose what we want to be true. We don’t get to change who God says we are just because we don’t feel like ourselves today. The Bible is our standard, and as Christians, we see things through that lens, that’s what a Biblical worldview is, and that is why it’s important for us to be in the Word, praying, journaling, studying, growing. If we are not solid in the Word of God, we could fall for anything. 

So how do we take a stand on God’s Word in love, walking in love without changing our standards? How do you walk in love and justice from a Biblical perspective? What does this look like? What boundaries do we need to set up for ourselves? How do we not get walked all over yet continue to show love to others? How do we show love to the unloving?

These are questions of our day, and today is an encouraging conversation because I’m bringing on marriage and family therapist Jessica Hayes to help us navigate how to walk in love and justice without giving up our moral or Biblical standards.

Ep. 90 | Will Speaking Up Help? Why One Mom of Biracial Kids Decided to Get into the Fight Against the Current Educational System

September 21, 2021

Today we’re going to hear from a mom who recently spoke at her local school board meeting about the dangers of critical race theory. Lia McCabe has a unique perspective as a Latina parent of biracial special needs children who are being failed by the current educational system.

Lia has a Bachelor's in History and a Master's specialized in Human Factors Psychology. As a mother to special needs children, she is also the Founder of the autism charity initiative, AutismWish, whose goal is to grant wishes to children on the spectrum. 

When she's not working diligently to help her community, Lia is an outspoken critical race theory opponent and activist with a passion for preserving civil discourse and diversity of thought.

WHAT YOU’LL HEAR:

  • Why Lia decided to speak up to the school board about the issues she has with the current system.
  • What life has been like raising bi-racial kids with the critical race narrative schools are trying to promote.
  • Why bringing back civil discourse and debate is a passion of Lia's and why it should matter to us.

Do I Need to Get Involved in My School Board - Ways to Have a Voice in the Community

Do I Need to Get Involved in My School Board - Ways to Have a Voice in the Community

September 15, 2021

Thad Riley, who just finished his term on a New Hampshire school board, is with me today talking about many of the issues he faced while serving his term (he’ll leave us with some encouragement). It is important for us to be a voice for our kids and the next generation.

After serving over a decade in retail management with tech companies, in July of 2015, Thad Riley became a stay-at-home dad. In 2017 he ran for and won a Seat on his town's school board in New Hampshire, and his term ended this past March. He also finished his term as the Chair of the Republicans in his town. 

WHAT YOU’LL HEAR:

  • Issues members of the school board have faced over the past few years and why elections for the school board matter
  • How parents can get involved even if they don’t have the capacity to serve on the board (he actually breaks this down into how we can make it about a 3-hour commitment per year)
  • Where to find the resources to know what is being talked about and voted on in the school board meetings

Part 2: What are the Dangers Critical Race Theory Poses to the Church?

Part 2: What are the Dangers Critical Race Theory Poses to the Church?

September 9, 2021

The church is falling for the social justice gospel. When you add anything to the gospel, you’re changing the gospel! Andrew Rappaport is back with me today for part 2 of our chat about critical race theory and how it’s affecting the church.

Andrew Rappaport is the preaching pastor of Grace & Truth Bible Church in Bucks County, PA, and founder and executive director of Striving for Eternity Ministries and the Christian Podcast Community.

If you haven’t listened to part 1, make sure to go back and listen to that one first. We’ve been having a really great discussion so far, and I don’t feel like I need to have a long introduction, so let’s finish this one up by talking about the dangers of critical race theory in the church and what we can do about it.
