    Her name is Nora Dammit! A Grandmothers journey through the Life and Death of her Grandchild.

    Her name is Nora Dammit! A Grandmothers journey through the Life and Death of her Grandchild.

    Imagine a paradigm shift brought on by the loss of a baby girl. Today’s guest, Linda Barbour, went through just that and her second wind story is like no other.
    Linda was a schoolteacher for 16 years of AP biology and anatomy. Previously a researcher of agriculture for UGA, she is now a Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist. She will explain how it was going from the Eastern way of thinking to the Western way of healing.
    This wonderful woman is a wife of 43 years, a sister with three brothers, and a mother of two. She is also a grandmother of four, three of which are living.
    All of these experiences tie together Linda's second wind. Some might say her second wind came when she wrote her book, “510 Candles: The Illuminations of Nora Lorraine”. However, the birth of Nora and her short life changed Linda's life forever.

    How the Heck do You find Faith in Loss and Hardship? With Steve Wormer Author of Rivers of Hope

    How the Heck do You find Faith in Loss and Hardship? With Steve Wormer Author of Rivers of Hope

    We all have sad and difficult moments in our lives but there is always a message if you know where to look.



    Today I have the honor of bringing you Steve Wormer. Steve has had many different forks in his road but his true second wind moment was after his emotional affair with a coworker. Steve recently self-published his first book, Rivers of Hope, where he writes about this affair and its positive effects on his marriage. Rivers of Hope also focuses on his journey to hope through the trials he faced, from miscarriages, failed adoptions, and an absent biological father.



    Apart from writing, Steve is a full-time Lead Evangelist for a church in Tennessee, the Executive Director of Hurt to Hope, a public speaker, and a leadership and life coach. The way his life unfolded for him after he found his purpose in that second wind has brought him to write his book and offer himself to a life of healing others.

    Your Parents Don't Want to Live with YOU either! With Author Star Bradbury

    Your Parents Don't Want to Live with YOU either! With Author Star Bradbury

    You will love listening to today’s guest on the Second Wind Podcast. She believes our soul's purpose needs to be addressed and met here and that's why she is doing what she’s doing. She is a very selfless person and has some very definite feelings about death and our life and our soul. I appreciate what she does and for being on the show.



    This guest is Star Bradbury. Star is a senior living expert who has given thousands of families the education and information needed to navigate the complex world of senior Healthcare.



    She has been working with seniors for over 25 years and as the founder of Senior Living Strategies, she regularly collaborates and consults with individuals and families from all walks of life as well as professionals in the legal, medical, financial, and long-term care insurance world. Her 18 years working with a nationally recognized Life Care Community allows her to share her expertise in this otherwise confusing and complex senior living option as well.



    Her new book, “Successfully Navigating Your Parents’ Senior Years” started as an outline that came to her in a dream. There was a different intended title called “Your Parents Don't Wanna Live with You Either” which I thought was hysterical and really on point.



    Star has 72 accumulative years, which has gotten her to the point where she has said she is not afraid of intense personal growth. Star has all the ingredients to make her a perfect fit for Second Wind.

    We all get what We are Willing to Tolerate... with Super charged coaching expert John Leeward

    We all get what We are Willing to Tolerate... with Super charged coaching expert John Leeward

    John Scott Leeward has a remarkable pre-second wind of his life. It includes an extensive background in television and movies, both onscreen and behind the scenes with his unique camera company. He has done all this while embarking on successful and long-running entrepreneurial ventures.



    At age 68, John decided to put all that glitz and glamor off to the side. He chose to pursue what has been tugging at his heartstrings all his life. John knew it was time to listen to what he believes his purpose is. He discovered and honed in on the Six Universal Human Needs. These significantly rule over how we as humans show up in the world, not only for ourselves but for others.



    These life lessons bring us to where we are and how we choose one path versus the other. In today’s episode, John shows us that this is what’s important. He will teach us that it's a gift to be able to do something with our life’s path to serve others.
