    203. Embrace Your Roles -- Jodi Rosser

    203. Embrace Your Roles -- Jodi Rosser

    Happy New Year! I am so excited you are joining me in 2024.

    Have you ever stopped and evaluated the roles you have in your life? The ones that God has given you?
    Today, I thought it would be fun to talk about the roles we have in life and how we can embrace these roles. I love that my mentor models this so well. She recently said to me, “Sometimes you need to step back in one role, so you can step up in another.” I love this quote, and so today, I want to encourage you to make a list of your roles, pray and ask God what roles He may be asking you to add to your list and what roles He may be encouraging you to let go.

    I recently did this and I share on the podcast what I felt God was asking me to do!

    You don’t want to miss my big announcement!
    I also encourage you to do this too- the beginning of a New Year is an excellent time to ponder how you want to spend your 2024 and in what capacity!

    198. 8:28 Hope in the Darkness -- Karen Hacker

    198. 8:28 Hope in the Darkness -- Karen Hacker

    Are you familiar with the verse Romans 8:28? Sometimes this verse can be misconstrued so let me read it to you: The NIV version says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” I am excited today that we are going to talk more about this verse on the podcast.

    Also, I cannot wait for you to meet Karen Hacker. We met through Saddleback Church, and she runs the Empty Arms Ministry — that is the ministry I attended after the loss of my baby. She is going to share a little bit about her story. October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. For so many of us, this is part of our story, so I like to do an episode each year and highlight God’s faithfulness in the middle of this unexpected storm. I am excited for this episode. You are going to learn so much from Karen about grief, what to say, what not to say, and we are going to dive deeper into that verse Romans 8:28.

    Depth Podcast Episode Recommendations:

    Episode 5: Episode with Yvonne Buck where I share about my miscarriage. Episode 6: Episode with Dr Shari Bridgman who wrote the Empty Arms Curriculum Episode 196:  Episode with Clarissa and how I shared my story with her and helped her through her miscarriage.

A podcast for all

We have (or will) all experienced pain, grief, loss, disappointments, etc. in our lives. Jodi Rosser touches on these pain points in her podcast. Listen to any of them (you should listen to all of them) and you will find helpful stories and hopeful insights. I look forward to each new episode!

Life is Hard but There’s Always Hope

If you live long enough, pain, grief, and heartache are inevitable. This podcast provides hope, encouragement, and practical tools to journey well through your own heartbreak as well as how to responsibly handle another’s hurting heart. I love Jodi’s vulnerability, compassion, and the way she and her guests continually point the listener back to Jesus as the source of healing!

SandyCoop ,

Relatable and Real

I love the way Jodi allows the Lord to use the hard things in her life to cultivate depth. Listening to this podcast is like having coffee with a wise friend.
