Miscarriage: Healing & Hope with Bobbie Mitchell
In this month's LEAD Women Podcast, we have an extraordinary guest, Bobbie Elaine Mitchell, my daughter.
In today's episode, Bobbie and I are both sharing our story of miscarriage where over 20 years separate our experiences, but one thing is clear, miscarriage is hard. It involves pain and grief and the need for others to journey with us.
Bobbie and I share our experiences candidly. There are some tears, and there is also hope.
Bobbie is an Accredited Professional Photographer who resides with her husband, Jordan, in Medicine Hat, Alberta, where they ranch.

Opposite Sex Friendship & Mentorship with Dr. Rob Lindemann
So, so excited about today's conversation with my good friend, Dr. Rob Lindemann. Rob is the Academic Dean at Vanguard College.
Rob has spoken truth into my life and been an extraordinary friend to me! If you've not yet met him, I'm delighted to introduce you to him today in our conversation.
Rob and I talk candidly about why mentorship and friendship with the opposite sex are beneficial, how it can affect people's future, help them understand God's call for them, and how it can express God's love.
Rob shares how important it is to clarify the benefits and the risks to another person if we're unwilling to engage. We also talk about boundaries and how to steward our lives well.
Love builds people up.
If you have any further questions for Rob and I and want to see us do another episode around your questions on this topic, please email me here.

Christian Spirituality as Intentional Practice
Please note: There have been glitches with my website since switching over to the new theme, so my apologies if you've gotten this post more than once!
Welcome to 2021!
I'm so thrilled you're here, and we made it to 2021.
I was inspired to record this episode through a book I was reading by local Saskatchewan author, Leah Perrault. You can find Leah here.
In her book, My Heart of Flesh: Choosing Life in the Midst of the Mess, she describes Christian Spirituality this way:
Healthy Christian spirituality is the intentional practices that allow us to live peacefully in reality, that draw us closer to God, one another and creation, that are a participation in God's saving plan for the world. (34)
In today's podcast episode, I'm asking you the question: What are the intentional practices that will allow you to live peacefully in reality in 2021?
I also share with you some of mine.
And, next month on the Podcast is my good friend Dr. Rob Lindemann. We chat about friendships with the opposite gender. It was so much fun to do!
Helping you live and lead better,

45: Business, Baby & Brain Injury with Valerie Edwards
HAYYYYYYY. We have the most special treat for you today. @ashleykampman and her bestie from college @valerie1473 are having the longest conversation ever to be recorded for the LEAD Women Podcast.
They are talking all about the brain injury that really changed the way Valerie Edwards approached life.
How in the same year - Val not only found out she was pregnant, but she started her own thriving business in a very competitive industry.
We talk everything from business to babies to brain injury... and mentorship... and humanity... and Ashley's past life. (Since Val knows Ashley so well - she rats her out on a few things. )
You basically are getting the inside scoop as to why Ashley has unlimited long distance calls on her phone now.
You can check her out on FACEBOOK. Where she posts all the things about her incredible equine program in the greater Calgary area.
Stretched or Strained
There's a difference between challenging yourself to stretch and grow and straining yourself as you try to achieve things.
Four questions to consider and use to self-evaluate:
* What is my current health capacity? How am I?
* What season of life am I currently in?
* Why am I trying to do this?
* What support systems do I need to have in place right now?
When you're straining yourself, and you do so over an extended period, the result may include mental fatigue, physical or emotional injury, anxiety, insomnia, to name a few.
WE JUST LAUNCHED OUR FIRST FREE COURSE. The course is on Finding Personal Values. IT IS COMPLETELY FREE. You will receive over two hundred value cards and a process to finding your own personal values. We love this exercise and use it with clients ALL THE TIME. Click here to check it out.
