    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.

    Hope after Abuse with Sandy Phillips Kirkham

    *Warning this episode may be triggering for some and may not be appropriate for those under 18*
    If you’ve been sexually abused, know that there is hope.
    My guest, Sandy Phillips Kirkham experienced the unimaginable at age 16- sexual abuse from her youth pastor.  27 years later, she started on the path of healing to confront her abuser and restore her broken faith. Although her story is difficult to hear, she offers hope- that there is meaningful life after abuse. She now uses her story as a ministry to help others who've experienced the same. Her newest book, Let Me Pray Upon You: Breaking Free From a Ministers Sexual Assault shares her experience and tackles this subject with the knowledge that God heals. Sandy's interview will give you strength and tools to use if you've ever found yourself in this difficult situation. 
    Sandy Kirkham and her husband Bill enjoy life with their two grown children, two beautiful granddaughters, and two fairly well-behaved dogs.
