    Restoration in Unknown Seasons- Guest Jamie Heard

    Restoration in Unknown Seasons- Guest Jamie Heard

    I had the pleasure of interviewing Jamie Heard this week! Her story will encourage you that restoration can happen even in the unknown.
    Jamie Heard is co-founder and executive director of Faithfully Restored, a nonprofit that serves women who are walking through difficult situations. After experiencing the loss of her son, William, in December of 2015, God surrounded her family with a community of people who served as His hands and feet. She saw the goodness of God and His faithfulness in the midst of heartache and devastating loss. Because of this, Jamie has made it her life's mission to help women going through hard times. Her goal is to let women know that regardless of their current situation, they are not alone, and there is hope found in Jesus. Jamie and her husband, Daniel, live in Brentwood, TN, with their two girls, Madeline and Annie. To learn more about the mission of Faithfully Restored and provide support, please visit www.faithfullyrestoredwomen.com.

Real Show, Real Issues

Let’s get real. Life is not always fun. Everyone experiences heartbreak. But we can overcome. 24 Carat Conversations are with real people discussing real issues and how they overcame. Very inspirational!

24 Carat Conversations is getting me through Life!

As a newish mom and current Covid Times - I have very small chunks of time that I have to myself...
Listening to this Podcast makes me burst into laughter and cry - sometimes all in the same 30 minutes Podcast!
I look forward to having a sliver of time to myself to catch up on the podcast and encourage me as a women, mom, wife and believer.
After listening to these Rhonda and Phylis and their guests I start or end the day feeling as if I met up with them physically and feel so uplifted!
