    Held in His Hands: Navigating Grief with Natasha Smith

    Held in His Hands: Navigating Grief with Natasha Smith

    This week, I get to chat with Natasha Smith, the author of Can You Just Sit With Me?:Healthy Grieving for the Losses of Life. If you’re a human walking on this earth, you have walked through hard things. And if you haven’t known much grief in your life, chances are you know someone who could use some encouragement and a friend in the journey. This conversation with Natasha will give you the tools you need to process grief on your own and with others.



    This is the final episode in the Held in His Hands series and the last podcast episode until the fall! I'll be taking a summer break and am excited to connect with you again later this year. Be sure to stay in touch via my email list. Don't be a stranger! :)

    Held in His Hands: A Living Faith with Anna Mae Groves

    Held in His Hands: A Living Faith with Anna Mae Groves

    In this week’s episode, I chat with Anna Mae Groves about walking out our faith, even when it doesn’t make sense. Anna is such a beautiful light and shares with transparency about her journey with mental health struggles and how the Lord brought her out of the darkness with one simple habit that changed everything. She also shares with us about faith-filled decisions that helped her to see God as trustworthy, faithful, and true. Her stories encouraged me specifically with some situations I have going on in my personal life right now, and I know the same will be true for you, too.

    Held in His Hands: Celebrating the Life You Already Have with Nicole Zasowski

    Held in His Hands: Celebrating the Life You Already Have with Nicole Zasowski

    In this episode, I chat with my dear friend Nicole about taking the risk of inviting joy into your everyday life. So often, joy can feel like a dangerous emotion to embrace, because when we have walked through hard times, it is easier to always anticipate the next storm around the corner. Through infertility, loss, and a cross-country move, Nicole has found the beauty in learning to embrace joy, even when it feels scary. 

    If you’re struggling to find joy and don’t want to hold on to hope, this episode will encourage you to find the beauty in the life right in front of you.

    Held in His Hands: Anchored in God’s Daily Grace with Portia Collins

    Held in His Hands: Anchored in God’s Daily Grace with Portia Collins

    This week, I’m chatting with Portia Collins about how God has sustained her through health issues and discouraging times when she wanted to give up. She shares with us how God has used her struggles to draw her to Him and make her more dependent on Him instead of trusting in her own strength. 

    If you’re in a season where you feel like you just don’t have much to give, this one is for you!

    Held in His Hands: Embracing Hope Through Pain with Laura Godfrey

    Held in His Hands: Embracing Hope Through Pain with Laura Godfrey

    In this week’s episode, Laura Godfrey shares a powerful, personal story of how God showed up in her weakest moment and let her know that He was for her and with her.  Walking with her husband through chronic illness has literally brought her to her knees, but God has given her the strength to walk with her head held high.



    Whether you’re walking through chronic illness, job loss, financial difficulties, or strained relationships—whatever your suffering situation is—this episode will encourage your heart. God is for you, too, friend.

    Held in His Hands: Finding Purpose in Seasons of Waiting with Jules Smoak

    This week, I get to introduce you to my friend Jules Smoak. She is a radio talk show host and is such a delight. Jules vulnerably shares with us about her lifelong struggle with dyslexia and how she has learned to see it as a gift from God. She also has a specific word of encouragement for those who feel forgotten by God while waiting for a dream He has laid on their hearts. You’re going to be so encouraged, friend!

So encouraging for where you are 💛

Jessica and her guests’ conversations are always so encouraging and uplifting, especially when you’re having a hard day or need to be reminded that God is for you. I am so grateful that this podcast is part of my Tuesday routine, even if I don’t have time to study the Word but can listen to it as I’m getting ready.
