    Listener Favorites: Finding Beauty from Ashes with Amy Moffett Brown

    Amy Moffett Brown is the bubbly co-host of the wildly popular Bobby Bones Radio Show that airs out of Nashville, Tennessee. At first blush, Amy looks like she has it all--fun job, happy family, partner in successful non-profits. Amy’s wins in life came from broken places that she turned into good--from her Mom’s difficult battle with cancer, to her burden for the impoverished people of Haiti. Jessica and Amy talk about the bravery it takes to actually make lemonade from lemons when your heart is broken, and how simply “asking” in regards to opportunity is a risk we all need to take more often.

Inspiration to Be Real, Go Scared, and Make a Difference

Jessica’s real world, down to earth, authenticity is so refreshing in a world of social media highlight reels. Her “Going Scared” podcast inspires me to be real and honest. I don’t have to be perfect before moving forward. I can admit being scared and still go forward. Jessica and her guests are a God-sent oasis in a desert of unrealistic expectations set by social media. Thank you for being real, going scared, and making a difference, Jessica! You inspire me to do the same.

So encouraging!

I put off listening to podcasts for a long time, even as they grew in popularity, because I was worried I’d end up taking on unhealthy advice (something I’m cautious of).

This podcast has been nothing but a source of encouragement and truth! I love the way things are broken down into series. For me, it makes the impact of the topic sink in deeper. I listen while I exercise and am surprised how much the time, doing something I don’t really love, flies by as I soak in each episode.

I always learn something new!

I love how digestible, actionable, and fun these podcasts are. Just finished up the Habits series - wow! So good. Will definitely be revisiting some of these later. The length is perfect, and I always learn something new about myself or ways I can shift my focus/take new action. One of my favorite podcasts!
