This week, I sit with my enneagram wizard and oily lover, Holly, as she shares her journey of grieving the loss of her mother to a brain tumor at the young age of 11. She discusses how God has continuously shown Himself faithful throughout her adolescence, young adulthood, and now becoming a mother herself. Her walk with grief has not been a light one, but Holly stands on this side of the road with a joy and fullness of life that is breathtaking.

9 | Liz Rosado
We are celebrating ONE YEAR of Get Up Girl!! What a year it has been. And we could not be more thrilled for the guest of the one year birthday episode. For this extra special chat, I sit with my favorite Puerto Rican Princess, Ms. Liz.Known to many as a mother, a prayer warrior, a friend, a safe place, and a spicy mamasita, Ms. Liz discusses her life story not from the standpoint of a victim, but from the perspective of a warrior. As a survivor of sexual abuse, drug addiction, abortion recovery, and devastating loss, she shares her life story from someone who has weathered the storm but found a love greater than life on the other side. I have no doubt that her story and her faith will encourage you today.

8 | Nicole Dunn
Hey friends! In today's episode, I have a heart to heart with my dear friend, Nicole Dunn, as she unpacks her journey of intense hardship during pregnancy, multiple miscarriages, and the sting of loneliness and depression. This is a topic that I have found is not discussed often amongst women. The more conversations I have had, I continue to discover more "me too's" and "same, girl" responses. So why aren't we talking about this? Maybe it is because we don't want to revisit the wound. Maybe we are fearful of the shame we may feel if we voice our true thoughts. I'm sure the list is endless. But today, I wanted to bring these topics to the light. I wanted to discuss the hard things and find the freedom that Jesus brings us in those times! And Nicole is walking, breathing proof that Jesus shows up, heals, and restores everything that has been lost. I hope you find encouragement in Nicole's story today.DISCLAIMER: Some of the topics discussed are very heavy and may be triggering. If anything discussed here today triggers anxiety, pain, shame, etc. we encourage you to reach out to someone and talk it through. Please do not walk this road alone! EPISODE NOTES:Books:1.
