    Protect Your Peace | Ep 031

    Protect Your Peace | Ep 031

    Welcome to Girl Get Woke! Today I want to send you a little reassurance and a little kick in the pants to get you to take back control over your own feelings and your own life.
     
    Other people and other things going on around you are outside of you. I know anxiety is real and I know circumstances are hard, but let me show you how to insulate yourself. Your self esteem and your peace are YOURS.

    Pushing Myself for More | Ep 030

    Pushing Myself for More | Ep 030

    Welcome to the podcast today! In Episode 30 I'm talking about what it feels like to come out of a season of heavy emotions. Sometimes the anxiety and worry hit us again a second time and that might result in... "add to cart." Right?! OK, let's dive in!
     
    I also want to walk you through the self analysis journal that Rachel Hollis offers because it's so important to give ourselves grace as we are looking back over the last 90 days. Let me show you the kind of self-talk that is healthy so you can see what you might want to learn about yourself over the last little while and effect ways to move forward from here.
     
    And by the way, if you love historical fiction I have a book recommendation for you. Check out The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd and please let me know what you think. I have just LOVED it.

    Finding the Good in the Hard Things | Ep 028

    Finding the Good in the Hard Things | Ep 028

    Girl Get Woke Episode 28! Thanks for tuning in! Today I want to share how wonderful it can be to look at your life and find the silver lining. I'm in awe.
     
    Last week my brother had terrible nerve pain, a traumatic seizure, and surgery to remove a brain tumor. I say this in the podcast, but it bears repeating here: Isn't that bananas?
     
    But we found a lot of peace when we looked for the blessings: My brother was able to be seen by the right doctors on the same day of the seizure. His doctor came to his house to show him the MRI results the very next day (on a Saturday!). And, thankfully, the surgeon said the procedure couldn't have gone any better. These examples and countless others were signs of love during a really hard time.
     
    What else are we even here for if not to love and feel loved.
     
    I'm so humbled by this last year because I'm reminded that God has so much good packaged together with the hard things.
     
    I am so speechless. I'm so thankful to my incredible support system. My team members at work, my friend and family: you know who you are. Thank you!

    Certain Uncertainty | Ep 027

    Certain Uncertainty | Ep 027

    Thanks for tuning in today! I'm talking about a huge command decision I made for my shelter-at-home experience this May. You might want to consider a May goal for yourself if you're turning to certain less-than-healthy sources of excitement a little too often. Just a thought.
    Mainly my message today is that I the world needs you just the way you are. Not everyone is going to love us, but there are plenty of people out there who are looking for someone just like us!
