Episode 10: Talking Health and Wellness as a Lifestyle with Lori Doddy
When we enter our 40s it can seem like taking care of ourselves becomes more difficult.  But this is exactly when we really need to be focusing on just that, since aging bodies need to be cared for in order to prevent major health issues in the second half of life. Lori Doddy supports women over 40 in this area and is a wealth of knowledge and encouragement around not only caring for our physical bodies, but also how that affects other areas in our life.  In my conversation with her we discuss health, self-image, and even how these things relate to our purpose. I think you will find this conversation both enlightening and inspiring.

Episode 9: 'The Grey Area' Uncertainty in Midlife (Part 2 of 3)
In Part Two of our three part 'Uncertainty in Midlife' series we're discussing the 'middle' or where we are now. A lot of uncertainty in midlife comes from losing touch with who we are, so it's a great time to reflect on that and make some changes if necessary. (Spoiler alert: It's ALWAYS necessary) I have gone through a major period of refinement in my 40s where God has brought a lot of things that were holding me back into the light, helped me heal from them, and taught me how to grow past them. As a result I've experienced less conflict in my marriage, less conflict within myself, and SO much less stress in my life in general. In today's episode I will tell you how to begin some self-reflection of your own, and encourage you to start to work out what you may need to change about where you are, so that you are well equipped to get to where you want to be.

Episode 7: The Grey Area: Uncertainty in Midlife (Part 1 of 3)
Today we're starting a three part series about uncertainty in midlife. As we begin to think about what we want the remainder of our life to look like, and start to plan out how we'll get there, it's important to look at three different things: 1) Where we've been, 2) Where we are, and 3) Where we're headed. Today we kick off the series talking about the importance of revisiting who you've been up til now, and how all of your prior experiences are an important factor in where you're headed.

Episode 6: Talking Grief with Kelli Nielsen, The Grief Guru
Kelli Nielsen has been through an unfathomable amount of grief. She has lived through things most of us hope to never have to.  But that is not her story. Kelli's story is a story of HOPE and HAPPINESS in spite of everything she has gone through.  Grief can take many forms (death, divorce, massive disappointment) and it typically broadsides us when we least expect it. It also takes a lot of us down....sometimes for a very long time. Kelli wants to show us how to not only overcome grief, but to come through it even better than before. This is an AMAZING story of hope and overcoming. Can't wait for you to hear it.

Episode 5: Changes and Choices: The 'U-Curve' of Life
What exactly happens to us in our 40s?  Why is this the time when people are most likely to have a 'midlife crisis', or get divorced, or go completely off the rails?  Well it's actually due to a couple of things, both of which are very REAL, and both of which can take you down if you don't know how to handle them. In today's episode we'll talk about some healthier ways you can navigate this often tumultuous time of life..

Episode 3: Shoutout to the Misfit Christian
With a propensity towards rock music, and a love for long-haired, tattooed boys, I've never felt like a 'normal' Christian.  In this episode we'll talk about how 'misfit' Christians (and troubled people in general) are EXACTLY the type of people that Jesus gravitated towards, and still does today. So bring your mess! That's exactly where he wants to meet you!
