    Broken to Redeemed: A Testimony with Kim Ledgerwood

    Broken to Redeemed: A Testimony with Kim Ledgerwood

    On todays episode of the podcast we get to hang out with Kim Ledgerwood. Kim was  a police officer for 28 yrs and  was diagnosed with PTSD and  Anxiety. Kim thought she was functioning okay and had everything  under control, not realizing her adiction was controlling her. Kim experienced a significant event that turned her life: professional, spiritual and personal completely upside-down. This caused her to start tackling her PTSD and addiction head on. In the midst of her battle, she found God. I loved my conversation with Kim and I believe you will walk away from her testimony feeling encouraged. Nothing is too big for our God!

    Dear God with Bunmi Laditan

    Dear God with Bunmi Laditan

    Have you ever struggled with prayer? Today's guest Bunmi Laditan shows us that prayer is as simple as breathing. We are given such a gift to commune with our Holy Father and Bunmi does so in a way that is truly beautiful. Her newest book, Dear God, showcases how Bumni speaks with God honestly, giving us permission to do the same.
    We talk about prayer, geek out about The Chosen and Jesus, and chat a bit about being an introvert. I had such a fun time chatting with Bunmi and we've since become friends after doing this interview. You're going to love todays conversation.

    God Promised Me Wings to Fly with Janet Grillo

    God Promised Me Wings to Fly with Janet Grillo

    Today we get to hang out with Janet Grillo. At 52-years-old, her  life shattered as she entered a world that she never knew.  She was once an unsuspecting wife and mother who learned about her husband’s secret life after he mysteriously died.  To this day, she still questions whether his death was a suicide, assisted suicide, suggested suicide or murder. 
    Janet uncovered alleged Mafia ties and multiple affairs with other women.  After falling into a deep depression with suicidal thoughts, she came to the realization that she needed to save herself from despair and hopelessness.  She realized that she was not alone and desires to help others get through their pain.  
    In her book “God Promised Me Wings to Fly: Life for Survivors After Suicide,” Janet motivates and encourages others to seek help to find their purpose in life, even when things seem hopeless.
