    Choosing to Really Trust God with Robert McNair

    Choosing to Really Trust God with Robert McNair

    Having a hustle attitude, Robert McNair likes to win! Newly married, having a newborn, preaching every Sunday at his Church, his life plan was all coming to fruition. Until, nobody showed up to hear him give the word. With a new family, financial burdens, his marriage disintegrating and his dream of having a successful Church slipping away, he thought giving his all to God and trusting Him would break him so he was trying things in his own strengths.
    Robert learned that in actuality, he was trusting himself and not God. When he learned he had to REALLY give things to God, that's when it all started to change for him.

    "Embracing the And" with Faith Broussard Cade

    "Embracing the And" with Faith Broussard Cade

    After being hit from behind by a tractor trailer, Faith Broussard Cade thought she came out of it unscathed. The ambulance looked her over and she was not bleeding. Although a little sore, she didn't imagine anything could be seriously wrong. But there was! In the passing days and weeks, her mobility became more restricted. She was having blurred vision. Her long and short term memory progressively got worse.
    Symptoms of Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury: that was what Faith Broussard Cade was experiencing. When she went to doctor after doctor explaining something was wrong, she was regularly ignored until a neurologist finally listened and diagnosed her. In this episode, Faith will discuss how she was able to take this life-altering event and create hope for not only herself but for others...one sticky note at a time.

    The Necessity of Men's Work with Has Al-Hasani

    The Necessity of Men's Work with Has Al-Hasani

    There are many times when one situation in your life feels like it is going to break you. But sometimes, we ignore the every day small moments where we neglect ourselves or ignore the internal nagging that something doesn't feel quite right. Sometimes our drive for perfection or being the best at everything is what is chipping away at our mental health until we reach that breaking point.
    In this episode, I am speaking with Has Al-Hasani. Has noticed that the things that brought him pride previously were no longer making him happy. He continued to "do well" in life but felt disconnected with the notion that playing ruby, drinking beer and driving the perfect car made him a "successful man". He wanted connection so he looked internally to find it and discovered the power of change though men's works.

    Harnessing the Power of Mindset with Michelle Wolfe

    Michelle lost her mum at 8 years old to cancer and that shaped her life in all ways, including how she handles trauma. While experiencing a year of energy depleting overwhelm and sorrow, she reminded herself consistently that these feelings would not last forever. Through 8 years of self-development and mindset work, Michelle learned that one of the best ways to adapt to her ever-changing life is to just keep moving forward. Making one decision at a time and taking one step at a time.
    In this episode, Michelle shares her wisdom on how she pulls out the tools from her toolkit regarding positivity and mindset work to get her through the darkest of times.

    The Journey of Hell Year to Hallelujah with Rach Wilson

    TRIGGER WARNING: In this episode, my guest and I discuss suicide ideation. If you need to pause or stop listening to this episode, please honour that. Thank you.
    HELL YEAR!! That is what this episode's guest, Rach Wilson, coined a particularly challenging year in her life. Having four children, her two youngest are both autistic and both of them are non verbal. With the autism came some health challenges for her son and to ease his pain, either Rach or her husband would drive him around and most days, they watched the sun rise. In addition to being sleep deprived from driving around all night, her youngest daughter became rageful and would attempt to self harm.
    As a Master Practitioner – Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis and Subconscious Re-Patterning, Results Coaching & Life Coaching Certified, FLOW & Manifesting Coaching, Mentor in Intuition & Business Development, Emotion Mastery Teacher and many many more certifications and degrees, Rach decided to take all her knowledge and teach families a survival guide for couples with neurodiverse kids!

Gamut of emotions

From laughing out loud to quietly sobbing, each episode brings on a gamut of emotions!! I love Bianca's ability to make each of her guests feel comfortable and free enough to share their stories. Even though all our experiences are not exactly the same, they are absolutley all relatable in their journey and their triumphs. This is definitely a podcast I will subscribe to forever.

Je_Ham ,

An honest and beautifully imperfect look at the human experience. An uplifting and connecting experience!

rbd_3 ,

As a fellow perfectionist and therapist, this podcast is fantastic. Bianca has such a calming voice and I’m loving the topics so far. So relatable!
