    Amy Brady's Freedom Story!

    Amy Brady's Freedom Story!

    I met Amy Brady through the Dreamers Summit that I attended a couple of years back through Horacio Printing. She is an amazing woman, who has learned how to take situations and trauma from her own life and use it to help others. She has a sympathetic and an empathetic way about her that makes people feel comfortable sharing their messes with her. Today's conversation is a great reminder of not only the messiness of life, but the hope springing forth each day. 



    Bio:

    Years of waiting for God to fulfill a promise bled into the hardest decade of Amy’s life. Deep valleys and many dark nights of the soul left her in a despair unrivaled in her life to that point. Fighting to keep her head above water, struggling to hold her marriage together, wondering if life would ever be full of light again, she came to the end of herself. Washed ashore from life’s hurricane season, she found herself exhausted and ready to let go of her perfect endings in exchange for His perfect peace.



    Amy is the founder of Evergreen Soul Wellness, a spiritual wellness company that combines her passions and experience of two decades of ministry into one place. Early in ministry she was a professional women’s speaker, author of seven Bible studies, and an Advent devotional. Today she is a Spiritual Director, a Master Yoga Instructor, Therapeutic Yoga Instructor, Content Creative, and a future podcaster. Amy is a wife of thirty years, a Mom to five hilarious humans ranging in ages from 27 to 10, as well as two fur babies. In reality she resides in Orlando, but in her head she lives in London, sipping on tea and planning her next travel adventure.



    Anchor Verses: 

    Psalm 139:12

    Habakkuk 3:17-20

    I had the honor and privilege to meet and interview Dr. Tracy Strawberry for this episode.  She is such a beautiful person inside and out!  It was completely a God appointment for us to get to talk!  I felt so comfortable with her that I revealed something in this episode only the people in my inner circle know!

    Kelly's Freedom Story!

    Kelly's Freedom Story!

    When I met Kelly Lester at the NRB Convention in March, I knew I had to have her on the podcast! At that time, I only knew one part of her story. It was only the beginning! This one is definitely needed in this time we are living in, especially today being midterm election day! Kelly talks about her own personal abortion story, working in an abortion clinic and how that transformed her life into where she is today.  She is now helping women coming out of that line of work and dedicating her life to fighting against abortion, while loving the women healing from their own experiences. 

    This episode talks about a lot of different sensitive subjects and is so important to share with the people around you! It will transition into discussions that need to be had!



    Bio:

    Kelly’s story is one that covers so many difficult and painful topics in our world today. Child molestation, raped as a teen, several abortions, drug dealing, eating disorders, homosexuality, pornography, prostitution, and even working in the clinic where she had her first abortion. But beauty triumphs from the ashes, and Kelly is a testament to how God can clean all the dirty parts of a painful life story and make it brand new.

    Now a wife and mother of six children, Kelly loves to share her story to give hope to the most desperate situations proving that God can save anybody. She is currently a client advocate for LoveLine Ministries, Director of Outreach for And Then There Were None and Pro-Love Ministries, and a board member for Village Ansanm: Living Stones Ministries.



    Anchor Verse:

    Isaiah 61

    Esther 4:14

    Anastasia’s Freedom Story!

    Anastasia’s Freedom Story!

    Welcome to Season 8!!  To start us off is my conversation with Anastasia Corbin, a fellow Buckeye (former in her case) and an advocate for bringing intentionality back into families! Using her experience of feeling rejected and lost, she has changed the narrative in her own life and the lives of those around her by discovering that God's opinion is the only one that matters. She encourages everyone to become more tied into what Scripture says is our identity, not what society or other people say.  Click the link below to preorder her new book, Becoming an Intentional Family, which comes out November 1st!



    Bio: 

    Anastasia Corbin loves to encourage women to live a life anchored in Jesus. She is also passionate about sharing God's Word. Anastasia is a wife to Jonathan and Mom to four amazing kids. Anastasia loves a good burger, meaningful conversations with her best friends, singing, and reading. If she had a day to herself, you would find her on the beach reading a book. 



    Anchor Verses:

    Joshua 1:9

    Proverbs 3:5-6

    Isaiah 26:3

    Proverbs 31:25-26
