Join me and Fearlessly Inspired as we hear stories of pain and struggle by people who’ve gone through the fire and come out on the other side - people who’ve bled and shed and fought and persevered through the darkness but who found their way out. Stories of people who overcame or who’ve learned how to cope with their struggle and who are here to show the world how they can, too.
My hope and prayer is that if you’re here reading this, a story finds you and puts it’s arm around you while whispering with love, “I see you, I hear you, I was once there too. You can, you will, and I’m with you all the way. Do you see that? Do you feel that? That’s grace, love, and hope. Chin up, sweet one! Let’s do this!”

EP 31: How To Do It All with Dr. Scott Spaulding
I’ll make a bold statement right off the bat: This is potentially my favorite episode yet; perhaps because he unknowingly spoke directly into deeply rooted fears I’ve held for years. Perhaps because I wrote down more notes than I have from any other episode. It’s FULL of wisdom nuggets so grab a journal!
In Episode 31, we hear from Dr. Scott Spaulding. Of the many hats he wears, veterinarian, entrepreneur, CEO, mentor… husband and father are what I admire most in him.
I’ve been friends with he and his wife Nancy’s two children, Justin and Sara, for about 6 years and since the first time I met their family, I knew they had something special.
It was as if they were four hearts all beating the same rhythm and the song created by their unique sounds was one that made you want to get out of your seat and dance.
They laughed; all the time. They joked. They played. They encouraged each other. Never did I hear a passive aggressive comment directed towards another. I didn’t feel any tension. I didn’t sense that anyone was more important than the other. There wasn’t a favorite. There wasn’t resentment. There was quite simply, a beautiful family who truly loved and supported each other.
Not only that but they welcomed me into their family as if I was a sister. So much so that I was invited on their family vacation where I got a deeper look into what makes this family a great family.
On that trip I learned you CAN do it all. You CAN have it all. You CAN be it all. But how?
How can you do it all, have it all, and be it all while becoming a veterinarian, getting married, create a family while building a veterinarian practice and founding a national group of over 30 mixed animal, equine, and companion animal practices? Not only that, how does your marriage stay strong and the bond you have with your children just as strong? How is it your family comes out of that race stronger than it was at the beginning? How do you do all that while influencing your two children in a way that instills drive, grit, kindness, morals and deep family values in each of them?
These are the questions I get answered in today’s podcast. I meant it when I said this at the beginning; this is potentially my favorite episode yet. Dr. Spaulding inspires immense amount of hope and will give you the courage to SAY YES, to set audacious goals, to believe in yourself, and will leave you in a beautiful state of gratitude and URGENCY.
To Scott: Thank you. There are so many people in my shoes who fear being able to do it all and you’ve left me, and soon many others, encouraged in our own abilities to do so. I know for certain your message was meant for me so I can’t wait to hear how others are impacted as well.
To our listeners: Come with a humble heart, ready to receive a positive, grounding message of hope and belief.

EP 30: Co-parenting with Grace after Divorce with Jeff Rizer
In Episode 30 we hear from Jeff Rizer who is the Founder of the Rizing Up Brand and The Rizing Up Mentality. He is also a father, an entrepreneur, an encourager, a truth speaker, and a divorcé who’s successfully coparenting with selfless grace & patience.
In today’s episode, we talk all about it. I have a feeling many will be able to relate to his story: After twenty years of dating and marriage with his partner, he no longer felt the excitement. No longer was he present when he was in her presence. No longer was he excited to come home. After months and months of contemplation as to what that meant, he made the hard decision to walk away.
Walking away from a marriage that has emotionally expired past is beyond difficult. Add two boys to the equation and we enter into a realm I pray I never have to personally step foot in.
However, fortunately or unfortunately this is a reality so many people are facing today. The amount of shame and guilt around divorce, what it does to children in the relationship, and how it’s to be navigated is unfair. Everyone handles it as best they can in the moment; sometimes that looks quite troubling and sometimes it flows in a positive direction.
Jeff’s experience with divorce and co-parenting certainly leans toward a positive one. Because of that, he’s humbly accepted my invitation to share his story and how he and his ex-wife have navigated this uninvited path in hopes that it’ll encourage others.

Today, Jeff discusses the transition from being divorced and angry and pointing the finger, while always worrying about the future, to finally taking ownership and embracing a concept called Amor Fati. Amor Fati encourages you to embrace the process and to understand that everything we go through is absolutely necessary. It wasn’t until he started embracing this concept that he truly started to live life and embrace each moment for what it was.

EP 29: Common Sense Nutrition

For Episode 29, I invited Jessie Bauer back to the Fearlessly Inspired Podcast to dive deeper into all things nutrition. Ten episodes ago, in Episode 19, Jessie shared her intimate story of struggle with self image and how that lead to an eating disorder.
Thankfully she turned her pain into purpose. The eating disorder fueled her life’s work and today we hear about all things nutrition from a certified nutrition specialist, delivered in a simple and digestible format. Pun intended.
In this episode, we’re simplifying nutrition.
Jessie Bauer, creator and founder of Good Farma, will share how to start eating in a way that’s good for our bodies. I promise you, it’s not as hard as fad diet plans lead you to believe.

EP 28: Rediscovering Yourself After Loss with Becky Allen
In Episode 28, we hear from creator and founder of Win The Day Pro, Becky Allen on a topic very important to me: self-discovery. Continuously learning who we are is a vital component for a life filled with genuine happiness, peace and joy. For Becky, she’d already had that as a mom and a wife but after losing her husband and other half in her early thirties to cancer, she had to rediscover who she is.
If I can tell you one thing about Becky it’s that she’s gifted. You’ll hear what I mean in this episode. Becky is a gifted writer, podcaster, mother of 10 year-old Dawson & 6 year-old Lainey, taco enthusiast, an Enneagram One, and since March of 2018, a widow.
A widow; a way in which she never expected to be described so early in life. She and Daryn grew up together, married after college, and had two beautiful babies. They’d just built their dream house, were working from home together and in Becky’s words described her life as a mother and wife as the “pinch me” type of life.
Then in January of 2017, fitness enthusiast, healthy-as-can-be Daryn found out he had stage 4 testicular cancer and it had spread throughout his entire body.
They did every treatment they could but sadly, the cancer was stronger. In March of 2018, Becky and their kids said goodbye to their larger than life father and dad. Just like that, their life drastically changed forever. From mother and wife… to mother and widow.
What do you do? How do you grieve? Can you find joy? Are you allowed to be happy? How do you be mom and dad? What do you do for work when your business was driven by your partner who just passed? How do you support a loved one who’s just experience great loss?
In this episode, Becky shares how she rediscovered herself after losing Daryn. If you have lost a spouse or know someone who has, this one is for you. She’s full of love, grace, perseverance, and transparency. I just have so much respect for this incredible soul. Thank you Becky, for always getting back up, no matter how hard life hits you down, for sharing your story to encourage others to keep going.
