Page of Our Lives - Hope in Infertility with Nicole Clark
Nicole Clark is a wife, mom, and a former background dancer for Justin Timberlake (yes!). But more than that, Nicole is someone who knows intimately the pain and heartache of infertility. It was through her own struggle with infertility that her ministry, Twelve 12, was born. Twelve 12 Ministries creates a safe space for emotional restoration, physical healing, and spiritual discipleship for women who have or are experiencing infertility, miscarriage or infant loss. Through their programs and resources, they are giving women hope during some of their darkest days. We loved getting to know Nicole and hearing more about Twelve 12 Ministries.

Page of Our Lives - S3 E15 - Growing Slow with Jennifer Dukes Lee
Jennifer Dukes Lee is an author, speaker, book editor and accidental farm girl. She is passionate about sharing the Good News through storytelling, including in her latest book, "Growing Slow: Lessons on Un-Hurrying Your Heart from an Accidental Farm Girl." Jennifer knows first hand that going big and hustling hard leaves us stressed, empty, and out of sorts, yet is often our cue to step into a far more satisfying, sustainable pace. Through "Growing Slow", Jennifer tells her story of rude awakening to the ways her chosen lifestyle of running hard, scaling fast, and the never ending chase for results was taking a toll on her body, heart, and soul. But when she finally gave herself permission to believe it takes time to grow good things, she found a new kind of freedom. We loved chatting with Jennifer and getting to know her better. You can learn more about Jennifer and her books at www.jenniferdukeslee.com. Or follow along on her adventures on Instagram and Facebook: @jenniferdukeslee.

Page of Our Lives - S3 E6 - She Works HIS Way with Michelle Myers and Somer Phoebus
This is such a great episode! Paige and I had the honor of interviewing the founders of She Works HIS Way, Michelle Myers and Somer Phoebus. These ladies are passionate about two things - Jesus and discipling working women.

We love how Michelle and Somer encourage women to stop compartmentalizing their lives - from work, to home, to church, to social - and instead incorporate Jesus into every area of their lives. Their story is so inspiring and we can't wait for you to meet them. For more information about She Works HIS Way, visit their website at sheworkshisway.com.

Page of Our Lives - S2 E12 - InstaJoy: Put Your Praise On
Today we wrap up our Christmas series on InstaJoy! All month we’ve shared four key ingredients we need to prepare our hearts to receive the joy that God has for us. We’ve learned to pause, pray, and prepare…and today we’re going to talk about the last ingredient – the importance of praise. Praise is like the steam valve on the instant pot. When the pressure of life builds and builds, praise is what helps us release those burdens and open our hearts to receive God’s joy. Isaiah 61:3 says to put on a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness. So, let’s experience the fullness of joy and talk about the power of praise on this episode of The Page of Our Lives. ......

We’re continuing our Christmas series on InstaJoy! The name for this series comes from one of our favorite Kitchen tools - the instant pot! Each week we’re unpacking a different ingredient to help prepare our hearts to receive the InstaJoy that God has for us. Preparing is an important part in cooking in your instant pot, and it’s important in experiencing joy. We can’t just show up, throw our ingredients in the instant pot and expect it to come out perfectly each time. We need to read the recipe, prepare the ingredients and then cook in the proper order. Joy is the same. If we don’t spend time preparing our hearts to receive joy, we might just miss it. .....

Each week we’re unpacking a different ingredient to help prepare our hearts to receive the InstaJoy that God has for us. One of the ways we experience God's joy is through prayer. Prayer reminds us of God’s presence in our lives. Prayer reminds us that God cares for us and wants us to bring our concerns and worries to him. Prayer helps us release burdens that weigh us down so that our hearts can receive the joy God has for us. At the end of today’s episode, we have a little challenge for you…a way for you to being practicing some of the InstaJoy ingredients we’ve been talking about this month. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to try it out and then let us know what you think. .....

Page of Our Lives - S2E4 - "I can't forgive them."
On today’s show we wrap up our conversation on Lies We Believe with the lie: “I can’t forgive them.” When we harbor unforgiveness toward someone, it can leave us broken and bitter. On this episode, we explore why we struggle to forgive and how this lie keeps us from experiencing true freedom. Many of us struggle with this lie. But the truth is, forgiveness is possible. If you struggle to forgive others, our prayer is that today’s show helps you take a small step toward releasing the hurt and bitterness in your heart.

All month long we're talking about Lies We Believe and today’s show is about the lie "It all depends on me." When we buy into this lie, it often leaves us gripping tight to whatever we can. We try to control outcomes and people, and keep all the plates spinning. We are left feeling overworked, overused and overlooked. We’re going to dig into why we believe that it all depends on us and more importantly, how do we begin to let go of the control and surrender to a God who never asked us to do it all in the first place.

As Kelli puts it, “Parental burnout is a real thing. And when it sets in, it can affect the whole family.” As parents, we can’t afford to ignore our needs forever.

Page of Our Lives - Ep. 13 - How to Keep Going When You Wake Up to Crap
Today we wrap up our series on pursuing our dreams by asking ourselves - as people who are working hard to make dreams a reality, what do we do when we wake up to crap? I apologize if you’re somebody who doesn’t like that word, but let’s be honest...sometimes it feels like it keeps dropping no matter how hard we’re working to keep life cleaned up and moving forward. We had started our conversation off air and soon realized it might be something you’d want to hear, so we hit record a few minutes into our discussion. But don’t worry...we saved the good, the bad and the stinky for you.
