This podcast is about the childless not by choice demographic on a global level. If like me, you are childless not by choice, this podcast, my platform, is a place for you to find community and understanding.
Childless not by choice women and men can many times be misunderstood or ignored by society, and I want to change that.
I invite everyone to listen and to realize we are not all living the same lives. When we realize this, our minds will open up to the fact that we can treat each other with understanding, empathy, and grace.
I'm going on hiatus, stop by for details!
Life is short and you only get one. Whose life are you living?
Mapping the journey, my conversation with Ruth Berkowitz, MA
I am spreading the great news that we can live a joyful, relevant, and fulfilled life, although we did not have the children we so wanted.
Why doesn't the church talk about childlessness
Hello, and welcome to another episode of the Childless not by Choice Podcast, where my mission is to recognize and speak to childless not by choice women and men around the world. Civilla Morgan here. I am spreading the great news that we can live a joyful, relevant, and fulfilled life, although we did not have the children we so wanted. I also welcome you even if you do not fit the demographic. Maybe you did not want children, maybe you have children. Thanks for tuning in. Welcome to episode 121!
Well, before we get into today’s show, why doesn't the church talk about childlessness? I would like to stop and recognize that this month makes five years of podcasting, speaking to, and encouraging the hearts of the childless not by choice community globally!
The platform itself is slightly older, with the podcast becoming the center of the platform. It does not make the other aspects of the platform: the blog, the community, the website, any less important, but honestly, the podcast is what really gets the word out. Once you listen to the episodes hopefully you are curious enough to come on in and explore the rest of the platform.
If I stopped podcasting today I would still see this as one of my great accomplishments. I don’t mean this in a self-congratulatory way.
I believe the goal of creating a place for the childless not by choice community to come to; whether it is the Facebook groups, the newsletter, or the podcast; a place has been carved out for us, the childless not by choice demographic with this podcast, this platform.
And I am grateful God chose me to do it. I am even more grateful that you are listening because that means you are finding value, getting help, and finding commiseration. Community. And you know how I feel about Community.
Once again, thank you!
So, there is a lot more in the show notes than what I have said. Please, please visit the show notes when you listen to the episodes. Every episode is chock full of great information. When I listen to podcasts I browse the show notes while I am listening. Unless I am driving of course. Never browse show notes while driving! In fact, as a podcaster, I listen to podcasts about podcasts. Those particular podcasts I listen to while I am at home, at my desk, because I sometimes take notes and follow up on suggestions literally while listening to the podcast.
Some people have told me that they listen to this podcast without distraction. Some of my podcasts I listen to at night. Find your podcast listening groove. See what works for you.

Let's Talk About It
Let’s talk about it. There is a pandemic going on, there is social unrest in America, we watched a man murdered on video in broad daylight, in 2020, solely because of the color of his skin. And here we are thinking it's the 21st century and we are more civilized.
Privilege is Like a Blanket
I am heartbroken to have had to see in 2020, a man murdered in broad daylight by the person who was supposed to protect and serve him. The first time I shed tears was the day his brother arrived at the site where he was murdered. My heart broke yet again. Every time I see his brother I cry. It could have been my family member.
Mother's Day 2020
'...we cannot compare our journey to someone else’s. ' So, when the insensitivities come, and they will, they will be met with, if not now, at some point on your journey, proper boundaries of self-respect and self-love. Such healthy boundaries will allow us to deal with insensitivity year-round, but especially on Mother’s Day.

If you're CNBC or care about us, do not miss out on Civilla's important podcast
Civilla Morgan's Childless Not By Choice (CNBC) podcast is a vault of valuable and insightful testimonies fro those living a life without children when that wasn't the plan. Our stories and voices are missing from the mainstream media narrative and often reduced to cliches such as 'career women' or 'crazy cat ladies' or, for men, dismissed with the (incorrect) notion that men 'can always father children'. It's time to hear the TRUE voices of the many people living this life and finding their way to live it passionately and soulfully. Thank you Civilla for your tireless work in making this happen. Podcasts are a LOT more work than lucky listeners realise, and cost both time and money to make. Thank you for this beautiful gift to the CNBC community. With love & gratitude. Jody X
