I want to start by acknowledging the racial injustices that our nation is currently facing. What is happening is not ok.
This podcast was created to shine light on difficult topics and be a source of positivity for those who need comfort. It is the mission of The Joyful Life to promote positivity, inclusion, and lead with love. With the current state of our nation, it is imperative we step up in our communities and be a light in this dark world.

In this episode, Michelle and I discuss racial reconciliation in America and ways we can help bridge the gap and end this era of racial divide. This is a must hear episode and one you certainly don’t want to miss.

Have you ever simply felt stuck? Like you wake up one day and wonder what happened? That was Lisa Mohager. She found herself 60 lbs overweight, bankrupt and a single mom. Then one day things clicked and she made a decision to do something different. Today she coachs women to get healthy & fit, both physically and financially. Today we will talk about how she went from "Drab to Fab" and how you too can transform your life.
In today's episode we hear about the impact drunk driving can have on the lives of those you may not think about when you get behind the wheel after a night of drinking. At 29 years old, Stacey was driving home from a Clemson football game when she was struck head on by a drunk driver who was driving on the wrong side of the highway. Stacey retells her incredible story of triumph and survival from a victim's perspective .
In today's episode we talk with Caitlin Anderson about body image, self acceptance and finding freedom in what you eat. There was a time in Caitlin's life when she was so hard on herself when it came to her own body image. She would feel guilty about eating certain foods and feel a sense of failure if she wasn’t at a certain weight or couldn’t be just a little smaller/or shrink a little more. Who in this world hasn't struggled with this at some point in their lives? I know I certainly have! Listen to how Caitlin overcame her body shaming and turned her self loathing into self love.
