Define Your Success with Troy Ritchie
You don't have to wait until everything is perfect before you jump in and do the thing you were born to do. Is the feeling of inadequacy holding you back? Fear no longer!
Troy Ritchie, author of the book You Got It, Now Go Get It, shows us how doing something you're not naturally good at can inspire others to go after their God-given dreams.

Resilience in Motherhood with Meg Glesener
Finding Strength in Community
As women, nurturing friendships and building community is vital to our well-being. As mothers, that’s often easier said than done! Putting ourselves out there can be tough, especially when we’ve been hurt before.
Today, Meg Glesener shares with us about the importance of women, and moms in particular, sharing a supportive and vibrant community. When her youngest entered first grade, she signed up for a community and found herself walking out on the first day…until a dear lady followed her out and lovingly welcomed her back in. Let’s do that for one another.
Meg Glesener is the host of the award-winning podcast, Letters From Home and a fellow mother of eight. She is a child of God seeking to live her best life and inviting others to join with her and her family along the way.

Using EMDR to Overcome Trauma
Get Unstuck From Emotional Trauma
I have a special treat for you today! I have invited my very own counselor, Carrie Ryberg, to come on the show today and explain a type of emotional therapy called Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, or EMDR for short.
That’s a mouthful to explain a relatively simple way of helping your brain reprocess painful memories. I have experienced first-hand the effectiveness of this type of therapy but I’m not always able to adequately explain it to others. So I invited the expert on to tell you why it works and how it can help you overcome trauma.

She has particular interest and experience working with trauma survivors. As a Christian, Carrie is equipped to work through the spiritual aspects of counseling as well.

We All Need Resilience!
Elizabeth Meyers is the real deal. Who better to talk about resilience than an Air Force Academy graduate and homeschooling mother of 8? Her faith is her driving force, and she has picked up valuable life hacks along the way. Elizabeth is a gracious interviewer who leaves her audience believing they can accomplish whatever is before them. As we prepared to record a podcast, she had just returned home from a dental appointment for seven people, she and six of her children. And I was feeling good because I had flossed! I still feel pretty good about that.
Real and inspirational
I love Elizabeth and her gentle wisdom. She understands struggles but doesn’t let it shake her faith. I always feel inspired after listening to podcast.
Uplifting truth and encouragement
Having recently been through a family trauma, this podcast has been a lifesaver for me.... it has given me tools and encouraged me in ways that only people who have walked through trauma themselves can encourage. It has given words to feelings I have been experiencing. Thank you for sharing!
