    How to create a warm and welcoming home this holiday season — Kathy Wilson

    How to create a warm and welcoming home this holiday season — Kathy Wilson

    Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night!

    So friends, since the holiday season is officially here, I wanted to revisit one of my all time favorite Girls Night episodes. It’s a conversation I had a few years back with Carl’s mom, and my amazing mother-in-law, the one and only Kathy Wilson. 

    As we speak, I’m just now getting back from a beautiful family Thanksgiving celebration that Kathy put together for 22 people and so I knew I needed to reshare this conversation because truly she is the hostess with the mostess!

    Now, here’s what you need to know about Kathy before we dive in: She basically invented pinterest. That’s not true, but it feels like it. She has incredible style, impeccable taste, and almost everything I know about style, design, home decor, hosting, and more, I learned from her. 

    In today’s episode, she’s going to be sharing with us…  

    How to make our house feel like home (with a nurturing, inviting ambiance) 

    How to decorate our homes without breaking our budgets

    How to make our homes feel warm and inviting for guests

    Actually doable tricks to being a great hostess

    How to make friends today that we’ll still be friends with in 30 years. 


    I’m so excited for you to get to hear from her.

    What to do if someone you love is having suicidal thoughts — and how to heal after losing someone — with Kayla Stoecklein

    What to do if someone you love is having suicidal thoughts — and how to heal after losing someone — with Kayla Stoecklein

    Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night!

    Today’s episode is a hard one, but a really, really important one. Today we’re talking about what to do if you or someone you love is having suicidal thoughts. We’re also talking about how to heal and move forward after a tragedy. 

    You guys know I’m all about mental health — I want to talk about it as often as possible. But you may not know that I’ve lost several friends to suicide throughout my life. 

    And the thing is — I know I’m not the only one. 

    That’s why I wanted to talk about it here on the show.

    Our guest for today is Kayla Stoecklein. Kayla is an author, speaker and mother of 3 little boys. Kayla became an unexpected widow in August 2018 when her husband, Andrew, the pastor of their large church in California, died by suicide. With three young boys also grieving and a heart full of pain, it became her mission to bring hope and help to others who have faced unexpected hardships.

    She recently wrote a book called, Rebuilding Beautiful: Welcome What Is, Dare to Dream Again, and Step Bravely into What Could Be  – I can’t wait for you to hear more about it! 

    Here are a few of the things she’ll be talking to us about in the episode 

    First, she shares about the stigmas surrounding mental health and why it’s so important for us to check in on our loved ones 

    Next, she talks through what to do if we know someone who is struggling with their mental health or suicidal thoughts and how to seek help

    And finally, she shares how to start healing and rebuilding your life after you’ve gone through a hardship or a tragedy. 

    This episode is incredible. The things Kayla shared with me were just amazing. I am so deeply grateful for the work she’s doing.The second we hung up the phone, I immediately texted several friends about it. This is a conversation I know I’ll be sharing and re-sharing for years to come. 

    I’m praying this conversation is as helpful for you as I know it’s been for me.


    If you or a loved one is having suicidal thoughts, we encourage you to seek help. Here are resources for you:

    988 is the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline (available 24 hours), you can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
