    Episode 94: How to Start Making Yourself a Priority

    Episode 94: How to Start Making Yourself a Priority

    It can feel like the last thing we are concerned about as the wife of an alcoholic....caring for ourselves.

    We are usually so caught up in our husband's life that we feel like we just *don't* have the time or energy to worry about us.

    But as a result we fall deeper and deeper into a pit of neglect, ending up a shell of our former selves.

    And when you add that to all of the emotional trauma we are experiencing in our day-to-day lives it is truly a recipe for disaster.

    In this episode we will talk about what 'making yourself a priority' means, what it *is* and what it *isn't*, and I'll give you three simple steps to get you started.

    Episode 93: How Long Should You Hold Onto Hope?

    Episode 93: How Long Should You Hold Onto Hope?

    Hope.

    It feels like all we have sometimes as wives of alcoholics.

    And sometimes we don't even have that.

    In this episode I will share a shift that you need to make where hope is concerned.

    And it's a *really* important one.

    Episode 92: What to Do If You’re Feeling Stuck

    That 'stuck' feeling is the worst, isn't it?

    You're not happy where you are, but you don't feel like you can do anything about it.

    But what if I told you that's not the case?

    In this episode I'll talk about why we feel stuck, where those feeling really come from, and exactly what you can do about it.

    Episode 91: Stop Listening to All the NOISE

    Episode 91: Stop Listening to All the NOISE

    Does your head feel really loud right now?

    Does it seem that the more you look for answers the more confused you get?

    In this episode I will talk about how our search for clarity as wives of alcoholics can actually make us more confused instead.

    I'll also give you some direction on a different way to approach things that will likely feel SO much better than what you have been doing.

    Episode 90: When Is a Change Necessary?

    Episode 90: When Is a Change Necessary?

    Should you just 'wait it out' in your marriage if you don't feel like you have clear direction from God?

    Not always.

    In this episode I talk about five different scenarios in which you should strongly consider a change.

    In these cases there is too much at stake, so it is probably best to make a change first, and then wait for divine direction from there.

Middle of the night miracle

I was at the end of my rope, sobbing on the couch after having it out with my husband in the middle of the night and I found this podcast. I began listening immediately and thought, this is what I need. I felt immediately like I was having a conversation with someone who knew exactly how I was feeling. I love my husband, I love God and so does my husband so THIS was a miracle in the middle of this crazy mess. Thanks!

Great resource for women!

I just discovered this podcast and it’s amazing! Julie has been through it all and her wisdom and encouragement are so uplifting despite my sometimes dark days. I’ve learned do much more than I did in Alanon which is also a great resource. Julie breaks it down to short but essential pieces.

So helpful, and moving!

This has really helped me the last 3 weeks! I was on my last limb standing. I felt alone, like I was going through this alone- although I knew I wasn’t. I was obsessing and my reacting with anger etc. was overwhelming! I’m so glad for this podcast & your the unconditional love and empathy you’ve shown. Thank you, many tears have been shed. In a good way, the Lord nudged my heart and said “Katy, let me take over”- this was a little push in the right direction, for me.
