    Ep 67 - Jackie Smith-Bell on Racism and Renewing our MInds

    These have been incredibly challenging times and I know I have felt the impact on my mind. Have you felt it? Increased anxiety, depression, hopelessness? How do we strengthen and renew our minds during this season?

    I loved this candid conversation with my friend Jackie Smith Bell as we talk about the growing pains of this moment and how we can mature and learn to trust in what God is bringing us through. I so appreciate Jackie’s wisdom in this conversation and that each response to a question is answered through the truth of God’s word.

    Jackie Smith-Bell is a wife, mother of 3, writer, and speaker who loves to encourage women to trust God. Whether it’s helping mothers balance the journey of motherhood or reminding them of God’s faithfulness, Jackie provides a Biblical perspective with humor, transparency, and truth. She has a published blog and podcast, “At Home with Jackie” where she shares wisdom and encouragement to help women “grow well” despite challenging circumstances.

    Ep 66 - Kristen Welch - Waking up to the world around us

    Ep 66 - Kristen Welch - Waking up to the world around us

    We’re taking a pause from our summer series on health and it is well worth it. Kristen is one of those people whose life has been radically changed and you can’t help but be changed as you listen to her. And in many ways, shouldn’t that be what all of our lives are like? As we encounter Jesus for ourselves and are changed, shouldn’t that be what others say about us all?

    This episode will encourage you, but more than anything I think it will challenge you as it challenged me. What if us running toward comfort in our lives, and holding back from those things that scare us, the things that God has set right before us in our lives to get our attention - what if those are the exact things we need to thrive? What if our best life is actually found in turning to face those things head on. Grabbing Jesus by the hand and saying, “Ok, I’m scared, but I’m in, I’m all in.”

    Kristen Welch is the founder of Mercy House Global, an organization that exists to engage, empower and disciple women around the globe. She is the author of several books including Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, Raising World Changers in a Changing World, and her latest book, Made to Move Mountains: How God Uses our Dreams and Disasters to Accomplish the Impossible.

    Ep 65 - ‘Let’s Get Healthy Families’ with Kim Amici

    Ep 65 - ‘Let’s Get Healthy Families’ with Kim Amici

    If you are a parent this is a conversation you don’t want to miss! Kim Amici hosts the Build Your Best Family Podcast and is a certified life coach taking parents on a journey to help them thrive in their families. She asks the question - “What do you want your family to be known for?”

    Have you ever thought about the culture in your family? What is your family known for? What do people say about your family when they’ve spent time in your home? This is culture. And sometimes we are creating a family culture without intention.

    I am trusting this episode will give you aha moments and tools (like this free pdf FULL of resources that Kim mentions in this episode) to help you begin to thrive as a family.

    I also mention the power of sitting down at the table and the stats that prove it as shared by Abby Turner in Episode 50.

    Ep 64 - ‘Let’s Get Healthy Habits’ with Krista Penner

    Do you ever feel like you’re operating on autopilot? I hope you said yes because you are! So much of our life is simply a series of everyday habits. But why does it feel like we often drift towards unhealthy habits when we have the very best intentions? How about our thought lives? Have you ever thought of your thinking as habitual?

    Krista unpacks this and more as she teaches us about the power of habits and how we can actually begin to make the changes we want to see in our lives. I am trusting this episode will help you navigate towards the habits you would like to see to help you thrive in your own life! (You might even begin to floss ;)

Krista and her husband Jerome live in Mission BC and have three grown children. She can often be found in her kitchen making something that calls for a pound of butter.
