Welcome to my podcast, Her Journey Towards Change. This is a faith-based life coaching podcast for women who, like me, are on a journey to live the best life possible...and then something happens. Something un-foreseen and everything changes. Life feels foreign. You feel stuck. It's difficult to move forward. And reaching out can be hard. Right? Believe me, I know.
If this is you, this podcast is for you. I don't claim to have all the answers, but I do know who does. God wants more for you. You were created to live your best life. So, I hope you go on this journey with me to a more positive perspective and take those hard steps together through Her Journey Towards Change.
Mid-Week Motivational 1 Episode #75
Today is the first of many Mid-Week Motivationals that will be posted on Wednesday of each week. In this episode, I talk about using our motivational muscle to stay mindful of positivity, some of my favorite quotes, and a moment I experienced a year ago about being in the moment and letting our light shine. To be the soul of a place. And I ask the question, What does our light look like? What kind of example are we leaving with others?
Feel free to share your thoughts with me about this episode at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at
Feel free to call if you are in need of talking with me as your personal life coach. I would love help in any way that I can.
Tuesday's Talk with Freelance Writer/Speaker Sue Fulmore
In today's Episode #74, I talk with Freelance Writer and Speaker, Sue Fulmore. We discuss her free resource 4 Best Practices For Connecting With God During Times of Stress. She shows me how to do Breath Prayer, which is a very calming way to relax and ease your mind and soul when stressed.
Sue says she is in that tricky middle of life stage, where her children have grown and left the nest, parents are aging, and the roles which once defined her have shifted and she is learning to live a new kind of life. She is learning how to shift from auto-pilot living to a more intentional and satisfying way of living.
Her desire is to see women grow into freedom from all the things which hold them back from an abundant and joy-filled life of following Jesus. She goes on to say, "Sometimes this means addressing our distorted views of God or ourselves. Often it involves identifying barriers which hide under the surface of our lives, and dismantling our automatic way of living. Sometimes we will discover that freedom comes from less striving and more resting in the God who has everything under control."
Sue is a freelance writer and speaker, seeking to use words to awaken mind and soul to the realities of the present. Like a prospector panning for gold, her aim is to use her pen to uncover beauty and truth hidden just below the surface of our lives. She is the mother of two adult daughters and lives in sunny Alberta, Canada with her retired husband.
