    Write Your Own Story - Meet my friend, Marcus Moorman

    Write Your Own Story - Meet my friend, Marcus Moorman

    I first met Marcus nine years ago when he began services at my nonprofit, Puzzle Pieces. He had big goals for himself from day one, never letting his disability hold him back or stop him from dreaming. One of those dreams was to be on stage sharing his love for dance. Marcus connected with a local dance studio, where he was able to find a job and perform on stage in front of thousands of people. Marcus secured a second job at Great American Cookie Company, where he excels at customer service and cookie decorating. But Marcus’ biggest goal was to live independently. With the help of our team at Puzzle Pieces and Marcus’ dedication to learning the necessary life skills to make his dream happen, he moved into his own apartment. 

    Don’t miss Marcus’ full story! His accomplishments are incredible and offer so much hope for parents raising a child with a disability.

    Dealing with Trolls on Social Media

    Dealing with Trolls on Social Media

    If you have a space in the world of social media, you are familiar with the negativity that can creep in. Just recently, I had some internet trolls light up my comments in a reel that I posted. They questioned me as a mom, the intentions behind my platform and my advocacy. But here’s a lot more to a person and their story than what a post or reel can portray, right? Join me and let’s talk about our current world of social media and how we can prevent our moods from reflecting our comment section.

    Guest Maggie Howard, Having the Courage to Change Careers while Discovering Who You Are – It’s Never too Late

    Guest Maggie Howard, Having the Courage to Change Careers while Discovering Who You Are – It’s Never too Late

    I have known Maggie since high school. She married her high school sweetheart, went to college and became a nurse, and had two kids and raised her babies in her small hometown. From the outside, she had the textbook perfect life. But in 2021, Maggie turned her life upside down. She felt stuck in a rut and dreamed of MORE… She made a lifestyle change, prioritized her health, and eventually quit her job. She bet on herself and overcame the fear of making a change.

    Listen to learn more about Maggie’s journey! Connect with her and learn more about how you can prioritize your health too!

    Guest Amanda Powell, Finding Strength & Resilience in Life’s Journey

    Guest Amanda Powell, Finding Strength & Resilience in Life’s Journey

    Meet Amanda, a local mom from my hometown, who didn’t let a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis at 22 stop her from pursuing the life she wanted. She pursued her dream of becoming a teacher, wife and mom. The resiliency she has learned through living with her disease prepared her for the cerebral palsy diagnosis of her fifth child, Georgia, who is immobile and nonverbal. Amanda talks vulnerably about the limits of her body, how she fights through everyday battles, including the guilt she feels for not being able to help care for her child with special needs, and how she finds joy in the hard — thanks to her faith and her five children watching her.

    What kind of snowball are you?

    What kind of snowball are you?

    This podcast may just be the kick in the butt you need. 

    As a kid, when you want to create a really big snowball, you find a hill and roll the ball downhill to make it bigger. That snowball can gain momentum and become something huge. 

    Our lives are kind of like that snowball. We take the same shape that our momentum creates. How big is your snowball? Do you have the momentum you want in your life? Or have you even started to create your snowball? 

    Start today. Just take a step forward, a step outside of your comfort zone. Do something different today that you haven’t done before. Stretch yourself and begin to form a habit that will give you the momentum you need to start building your snowball.
