Turn The Corner Podcast is a Mental Health podcast for anyone who is rebuilding, stretching, or growing from struggle in any way. This podcast has expanded to include not just those going through divorce, but going through any difficult adjustment in life. Welcome to those who are ready to turn the corner and grow real emotional resiliency from adversity.
To the Self-Help Junkie
This podcast is for the self-help junkie. I have definitely been there. That hit of dopamine every time you hear the latest and greatest strategy is exquisite. So, you seek more and more and more. You've got the latest audiobook and 3 others queued and ready to go. You've got your ticket to a couple of retreats, and your nose in a few self-help books.
But, is there true growth? Is there improvement? Is all the "trying" getting you somewhere.
We are so good at being human doings instead of human beings. Listen in and see what might be missing.

Pain = The Reason for Poor Communication
In this podcast I talk about how difficult communication is between anyone who seems to be the cause of pain for you. What would happen if you were asked to give a speech and while you were walking up about to deliver it, you totally stubbed your toe? Would you be able to talk right away? Would you have the senses to say everything as planned? Not at all...you'd definitely need some time to compose yourself.
Same goes for our emotional pain. We just may not have the words in the moment when we are "triggered" into feeling a lot of pain. So, I offer some helpful strategies around this, so you can communicate better with your coparent, spouse, child, coworker...or WHOMEVER!

102. Happy Mother's Day: To My Single Moms
To all my single moms out there, this message is for you. Single dads, just substitute dad for mom and listen on father's day. :) :)
Why does Mother's Day shortly after a divorce feel weird or different? I hope it doesn't for you, but just in case, I shared my perspective which I believe many share.
It is interesting that once divorced, you fall into the category of Single Mom. Isn't that nice that society has a new name for you? Subconsciously, this can feel like a different definition and even a different identity.
I believe this identity can enhance what motherhood means to you and is a special calling. As we rise to any challenge we may have, the Lord qualifies whom he calls.
Please listen in and let me know what your perspective of a single mom is. Link to Podcast in Bio. Episode #102.
101. Self-Discipline is the New Self Care
I've got a little secret to share in this podcast that you might not be ready to hear. So, when you're ready...go listen! You won't regret it.
This podcast actually stems from a time in my life when I was struggling and I kept asking my mom for advice. "Tell me your secrets!" I'd say. "I want to know." She would keep telling me I wasn't in the right frame of mind to hear it yet and kept putting me off and putting me off. Well, what does that do to anyone? It sparks their curiosity and makes them want to know....NOW!!!
So when I made her tell me it started off with the phrase, "You're not going to want to hear this." Ha ha. That's not the most fun thing to hear before someone proceeds to offer advice. But, it was very simple y'all and you probably need to hear it, too.
On the back end of the podcast, I talk a little bit about what real self-care is and what it isn't. Interesting that the tough message from my mom is actually what proves to care for the self THE VERY BEST!
