    79. 3 Ways to Prevent Disappointment and How to Deal when it Happens in your Life

    79. 3 Ways to Prevent Disappointment and How to Deal when it Happens in your Life

    79. Hey Sister Friend,
    Have you ever walked through a season of disappointment? (I’m over here with my hand raised.) Of course you’ve experienced disappointment. You’re human, Sis!
    Disappointment can send us into a deep, dark hole if we allow it to take us there. 
    Fortunately, there are some things we can do that will actually prevent disappointment from happening, or at the very least help us deal with it in a manageable way. 
    Tune in today as I share the truth about where disappointment comes from and three ways we can prevent it. You’ll also pick up some nuggets of wisdom from special guest, Kelsey Joy Rinker as she shares insights about how to deal with disappointment when it does happen in our life. 
    You’re gonna love this episode! 
    With Great Joy! 
    Katie

    Hey Sweet Friend! I used to be a stressed-out mama, battling overwhelm, anxiety and  #momguilt. It wasn’t a great space to be in. Maybe you relate? There’s hope, sister! I learned to partner with God in designing my life and living it out with intention. #GameChanger 
    Now I run my time, instead of feeling pulled in every direction and I actually live my priorities (instead of just talking about them). Imagine being able to passionately pursue Jesus and your purpose. Picture having the freedom to chase after your kids and your dreams, every day. Sister, that’s my actual life! It’s within reach for you too!
    If you’re looking for less stress and more JOY in your life, I’d love to help! Head over to KatieHedrickCoaching.com to see how we can work together.

    78. Toxic Positivity? Girl, Here's Permission to Feel your Feelings

    78. BIG NEWS! The “Happy Chick” is covering a completely wild topic on the podcast today. Yep, we’re talking about “toxic positivity.” Me, the girl who someone once called “too happy,” is actually going there today. 
    Join me for a deep dive on what toxic positivity is, what it looks like, why it’s hurtful and what we need to do sometimes instead of being “eternally optimistic.” 
    It’s not all sunshine and rainbows on the show today… in fact, we’ll be talking about giant slugs, vomit, anger and so much more. Don’t miss this episode, sister. It’s a good one! 
    With Great Joy!

    77. Narcissism // What it is, Why it Hurts, How to deal with It

    77. Narcissism // What it is, Why it Hurts, How to deal with It

    77. Narcissism. It’s a heavy word. And it’s probably rearing its ugly head somewhere in your life (or it has in the past).
    The after effects of being abused by a narcissistic person can be deep and painful. There’s a reason why. Narcissism is not only a psychological battle, it’s also spiritual warfare. 
    Ronica Cormier, host of the Mama Trauma podcast is joining me today to deep dive into this topic. We’re unpacking what narcissism is, why it hurts and how to deal with it. 
    In all transparency, immediately after we finished recording this episode, my heart was so convicted to pray for a loved one that I immediately hit my knees and called on the redemptive power of the Holy Spirit. 
    This episode is a powerful one, Sis. Press play.
    With Great Joy!

    BONUS! // Moms in the Middle - The Struggle with Mom Friends

    BONUS! // Moms in the Middle - The Struggle with Mom Friends

    Hey sweet sisters! It’s another bonus episode here on the podcast. I recently connected with an amazing group of mamas and we have collaborated as a sisterhood of moms who are in the “messy middle” of motherhood, right along with you guys, to bring you some insightful round-table style discussions. 
     
    Today’s topic is the struggle with mom friends. And sister… the struggle can be real! Am I right?! Everything from keeping friendships alive to knowing that it’s time to say goodbye to some friendships as you transition into a new season of life to trying to make new friends while you’re also figuring out your role as a mom and wife and trying to find some kind of balance amongst it all!
     
    We see you, sister. And we’re right there in the trenches with you. So grab a cup of coffee and picture the 6 of us mamas sitting around the kitchen table with you as we discuss friendship today!

    75. Alcohol Addiction, Leaving the Jehovah's Witness Religion and Finding Jesus (Candace's Story)

    75. Alcohol Addiction, Leaving the Jehovah's Witness Religion and Finding Jesus (Candace's Story)

    75. Hey Sister Friend!
    Candace Advent, a fellow Jesus lovin’ sister joins me on the podcast today to bravely share about how she traded religion for a relationship with Christ, while simultaneously walking through a divorce, becoming sober and navigating a pregnancy. If that sounds like a whirlwind of life experiences, that’s because it was, but the resounding anthem of that season in Candace’s life was one of HOPE.
    Today, with a shaved head and nose ring, Candace notes how she “looks different” than other people, yet it beautifully illustrates how God’s children are all unique, wonderfully made, and deeply loved. 
    Tune in as Candace shares from her heart about what life looked like inside the Jehovah's Witness Religion, what she lost and gained by leaving and the hopeful life that she lives today. 
    With Great Joy! 
    Katie
