144. The Power of One Question and Pajamas. The Incredible Transformation Story of Genevieve Piturro Author of “Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas: How to Transform Your Life, Embrace the Human Connection, and Lead with Meaning”
Dr. Brad Miller’s guest on Episode 144 of Beyond Adversity is Genevieve Piturro Author of “Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas: How to Transform Your Life, Embrace the Human Connection, and Lead with Meaning”
Genevieve shares with Brad her incredible transformation story. Genevieve Piturro was a successful television marketing executive in New York City for twenty years when a little girl’s question changed the course of her life forever – and she jumped off the corporate ladder. She began delivering pajamas and books to children in shelters and in 2001 founded Pajama Program, a non-profit which has been recognized nationwide for both its success and Genevieve’s story.
Brad and Genevieve talk about her transformative experience in working with children who lived in difficult conditions in shelters and prompted the question in her heart of “is this enough?”
This is the story of answering the transformative question in your life and then taking action to live out that transformation. In the case of Genevieve Piturro, the unexpectantly powerful symbol of her transformation was simply providing pajamas to children through the creation of the Pajama Project.
This a fascinating and poignant story of personal transformation with great leadership lessons and a process to impact the world with simple powerful acts of human connection.
Information about Genevieve Piturro, The Pajama Program, and her book “Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas: How to Transform Your Life, Embrace the Human Connection, and Lead with Meaning“ can be found at her blog.

143. Through the Storm of Early Trauma: Healing and Overcoming by Roberta “Byrdy” Lynn
Byrdy Lynn the author of "Through the Storm of Early Trauma: Healing and Overcoming" is Dr. Brad Miller's guest on Episode 143 of The Beyond Adversity Podcast.
Byrdy Lynn goes into great depth in this conversation about the traumatic events in her early childhood, which led her into some dark places, and describes how she overcame and healed from these traumas to successfully speak into the lives of others similarly traumatized through her work and her book.
She states in her book:
“The next chapter in your life is going to be the best chapter of your life because your breakthrough of empowerment begins now.”These words end the preface and begin the reader’s journey into the life and mind of Byrdy Lynn. From a profoundly troubled childhood come unflinchingly honest stories of abuse, neglect,
violence, isolation, and blatant racism—a litany of events that left the author suffering from PTSD and suicidal depression.
As in any life, there are moments of brightness, but these are few and far between.
Nonetheless, Through the Storm of Early Trauma is not told from a place of anger or
resentment. Instead, it speaks with the voice of hope—that others who have lived such stories,
and who are living those stories today, will find their own inner strength to seek the help they need and deserve.
Byrdy Lynn is the proud mother of one son, who is attending college for industrial engineering.
She is also CEO and Founder of REAME LLC, a real estate technology company, and
Byrdylynn, a publishing company. Byrdy sits on the national IREM Foundation Board and
actively volunteers with the Real Estate Associate Program. She holds a BA from the University
of Texas at Arlington.
Byrdy enjoys entrepreneurship and strategizing new ways to make a positive difference in people’s lives. She attends Alfred Street Baptist Church virtually and has been a member since 2013. Her greatest joy lies in seeing others become happy and self-sufficient, finding peace in their own stories.

Great insights on overcoming adversity
