    Episode 454: Vulnerability

    Episode 454: Vulnerability

    Send us a Text Message.
    In today’s episode, we talk about honesty, being transparent when you want to hide, and finding the voice to share with others! When we remove our crutch (for me, alcohol), we can’t mask or remove our feelings. We have to be willing to be vulnerable with ourselves and others. Being honest in every aspect of your life is one of the greatest gifts sobriety offers -- if we accept it.

    I hope you enjoy today’s show!

    Episode 452 Are you willing to be Transparent?

    Episode 452 Are you willing to be Transparent?

    Send us a Text Message.
    In today’s podcast I talk about how transparency and authenticity is at the core of being sober, if you can’t be honest sobriety is almost impossible. 

    We all have choices and why do we choose the easier way — which for a lot of people is choosing to continue to use and stay in the personal hell of active addiction. 

    When we are able to find someone that will love us and not judge us we have the chance to really get better!

    God is so good and having a relationship with God is of the utmost importance when it comes to living a peaceful and serene life. I don’t believe you find harmony if you don’t find faith. 

    I traveled to El Salvador in 2013 and it was the most deadly country in the world! Today, in 2024 it is the safest country in the Western Hemisphere! Why?  The President of El Savador contributes his success to God and prayer! 

    I promise that if you are open to changing and allowing God in your life everything can and will change for you! 

    Trust and love opens our hearts to the light.

    Episode 451: Amberlie Johnson’s husband OD’d twice and he is still alive

    Episode 451: Amberlie Johnson’s husband OD’d twice and he is still alive

    Send us a Text Message.
    Today's story is a testament to love and commitment. This is a very gut wrenching story and will touch anyone’s heart! 

    Amberlie attributes her strength and determination to God. She has incredible faith. 

    Amberlie isn’t different from many of us. She fell in love in high school and got married to the man of her dreams. Her husband’s job was hard and physical. Like so many stories we hear he hurt his back, went to the doctor and the doctor prescribed Oxycodone. 

    What happened after taking the drug is a common story. In an all-too-familiar scenario, he got addicted. 

    Again, this story is somewhat tough to listen to because Amberlie’s husband did not die, but his life is changed forever. 

    We all need to realize that what is happening with drugs and alcohol in our country is an epidemic. Here is a story about a real incident that changed these people's lives forever. 

    Thank you Amberlie for coming on Busy Living Sober.

    Episode 450 Stop Staring at a Closed Door

    Episode 450 Stop Staring at a Closed Door

    Send us a Text Message.
    Do you ever find yourself staring at a closed door? I don’t mean literally, but when you really want something to be different and it isn’t! You try to change what is happening in your life and you want some person to change and they aren’t and you can’t change it but you wish!!! What if you prayed instead of wishing?

    Life is very challenging these days but what can we do to change? We can’t change anything but ourselves unfortunately. Asking for help is where you can find hope! 

    Today I talk about my closed doors and how my staring hasn’t changed anything! In fact it brings me back to my pity party! No one ever wants to go to a pity party, including me. 

    What am I doing to change?

    Listen to today’s podcast and find out!

    Episode 449: Adam Nimoy son of "Spock" aka Leonard Nimoy

    One would think that growing up with a famous Dad would be the ultimate gift! Walking around and everyone knowing your Dad and having the financial benefits that come with fame. Listen to Adam Nimoy, Leonard Nimoy’s son, aka Spock from the famous television show Star Trek. 

    Adam had many gifts growing up that his father didn’t have but he had other stressors and heartaches. In today's podcast, Adam talks about his life as the son of Leonard Nimoy, not only an actor but an alcoholic as well. 

    Father and son attended meetings and synagogue together and worked through the steps of alcoholics anonymous in very different ways. 

    Listen to his experience, strength and hope on today’s podcast.
