    Episode 44: Counting Up to Christmas with Jennifer Elwood

    It's Christmas time!! And I'm so happy to introduce you to my guest today who has written a beautiful book that will make a great addition to your holiday season. 

    Jennifer Elwood is the author of 'Counting Up to Christmas: 24 Gifts from the Gospel of Luke'.

    From the book description....

    "As we approach Christmas, we have a choice--permit stress to provoke us or allow God to permeate true peace. Let's celebrate the birth of Jesus this year by unwrapping gifts from God's Word, one shiny, beautifully wrapped Bible verse at a time. Jesus, the baby who would grow up and change everything, can supply the serenity we long for during the holidays."

    Beautiful, right?? I can't wait for you to hear more about this wonderful book. Tune in now to check out my convo with Jennifer!

    Episode 43: The 'Grace' In Grace Over 40

    Episode 43: The 'Grace' In Grace Over 40

    In the last episode we talked about the Grace Over 40 mission. 

    Today we are talking about why it's called 'Grace Over 40' in the first place.

    Have you ever felt like you wanted a close relationship with God, but you just didn't have it together enough?

    Hi, have we met?? 

    If I was waiting to have it together enough I would have given up on God a LONG time ago.

    In this episode we're talking about God's grace. What it means, how we get it, and what it can do for us.

    This one got me fired up! Please take a listen. I truly believe it could change things for you.

    Episode 42: What's the Big Idea?

    Episode 42: What's the Big Idea?

    What do YOU think I do? 

    Today we're talking about the Grace Over 40 mission....and it might not be quite what you think it is!

    The mission came to be after following God's lead on how to best serve women over 40, and more importantly WHY they needed help and guidance in the first place.

    Midlife is a super important time of transition in our lives, and I feel that many of the things we go through during this time are designed to move us forward in a positive direction. 

    But you have to be careful not to slide off track instead, because some of the feelings we come up against can be easily misconstrued, and become dangerous.

    So please tune into this episode to find out exactly what I mean by that, and to get some faith-fueled guidance on what we really need to be doing at this stage of our lives.

    Episode 41: Stopped Before You Start: The Danger of Overwhelm

    Episode 41: Stopped Before You Start: The Danger of Overwhelm

    Raise your hand if you struggle with overwhelm.

    I'm guessing that pretty much every one of you has your hand raised because this is such a struggle for so many of us.

    Overwhelm stops SO many things before they even get started. I call it 'the crusher of dreams' because it keeps so many people from moving forward in so many ways.

    Today we are going to be talking about the importance of getting out from under overwhelm, and some steps you can take to start doing just that.

    Episode 39: Is It a Midlife Crisis?

    Episode 39: Is It a Midlife Crisis?

    We hear a lot about midlife crises. We usually see it portrayed as buying a sports car, or drastically changing the way we look.

    But in reality it often looks a lot darker than that, and we usually don't even realize it's happening until we are fully in it, making unhealthy choices and/or dealing with the fallout.

    The absolute WORST thing you can do if you are headed for (or already in) a midlife crisis is doing nothing to stop it. That never ends well.

    So today I want to talk about how to know if you are heading for one, and what you can do beginning today to get out from its dangerous grip.

    Please join me. I truly feel like every woman over 40 needs to hear this.

Keeping It Real

I adore Julie’s perspective on church and mid-life. If you are looking for a podcast where people keep it real, this is it. There’s no sanctimonious platitudes or glossing over the hard aspects of life here, and it’s truly refreshing. Thank you, Julie, for your courage in talking about the hard stuff

R0ckinChristian ,

So what I need to hear!!!

Julie’s podcast is so relatable!! I love that she is such a REAL person and I am always interested to see who her guests will be as there’s such a wide variety of topics but all still legit happening smack-dab in my 40s. Thank you for this podcast!!! I look forward to each new episode.
