    Ep. 69 | How to Leave a Toxic Relationship & Thrive with April Tribe Giauque

    On today's episode, my new friend April Tribe Giauque is telling us her story of marital abuse and how she escaped with her 5 beautiful children and has gone on to help others escape as well.
    April is a podcaster, author, empowerment speaker, and now, remarried mother of 9! Listen in as she helps us navigate our role in rescuing victims of domestic abuse, what you should be looking for when dating to hopefully prevent becoming a victim, and how to build a network of the right people in order to leave a toxic situation.
    Recording this episode with April was emotional as I've left my own abusive relationship and it brought back many, many memories, some of which we discuss here today.
    So, buckle up bc it's a bumpy ride, but spoiler alert - it ends up very well!

    Bonus | Ep 67.5 | How to Manifest as a Christian - Is it from God? Or is it of the world?

    Bonus | Ep 67.5 | How to Manifest as a Christian - Is it from God? Or is it of the world?

    Christians have been in this long debated argument for years now discussing manifestation, meditation, and how it incorporates with Christianity - or if it does at all. 
    This is what I’ll say on the subject: You are you. You know where your heart and focus are - moving in conjunction with the holy spirit rather than what your ego wants. 
    God wants you to be a testimony for others and show them what's possible in moving with the Holy Spirit. 
    We must renew our minds so we can hear God clearly, otherwise, our ego gets in the way.
    the ego shows up like, ohhh I will step on anyone to get what I want. I will sell worthless products and services, I’ll trick people, I’ll get into a get rich quick scheme and not worry about who it hurts or steals from as long as I’m taken care of - my blessings abound. NAH FAM!

    OR 

    Your ego can get in the way and cause you to play small and think “oh if God really wanted me to have this, He would make it happen”. NOPE! If you really want it, He wants you to go for it. Work for it. Don’t expect a handout. That’s not how He works.
    It's not Godly to have limiting beliefs. He made us in His image and He calls us worthy! If we don’t consistently work to overcome these stories that keep us stuck or keep us striving to live out the potential that HE put inside of us - we are not doing His work. Instead we’re letting the devil/evil/low energy/doubt/unworthiness take over us. He did not call you to that!! That is not from Him!!
    Okay so here’s the process. It’s 6 simple steps.
    You must be truly grateful for everything you already have.
    And be a good steward of your gifts and blessings :
    Talents
    Money
    Time
    You must be truly grateful for everything you already have.
    a. And be a good steward of your gifts and blessings : Time, Talents, MoneyYou gotta dream big: What do YOU want! It can be hard to get out of your head and think about what YOU want with all the noise around. HELLO - advertisements were made to tell us what to want.Pray about it: Your will be done, Lord!! This or something better - sometimes we don’t get what we want in the exact way we want it - we get something even better than we could have ever imagined. Have you ever looked at your life and thought “ugh I wish those unanswered prayers had been answered” NOOOO bc they were - with something better.Write it down, be specific, and list your WHY! Your why will keep you coming back to it when you are feeling defeated.Visualize it - smell it, feel it, hear it, see it, taste it (if you can). Your brain doesn't know the difference between visualizing and real memories.Take inspired action, knowing exactly what you want is on the way. Know the Holy Spirit is guiding you if you let it. Have Faith that He will make it happen if it’s His will. Your job is just to obey and do what He wants you to do. You must TRUST that it will be done! Believe. Know. Our limiting beliefs get in the way - not from God. God calls us worthy! When we don’t believe that and work from that place, we are not being Christ-like. Christ KNEW he was the son of God, he didn’t try to convince others. He KNEW!

    God qualifies the called! You have everything you need inside of you already!

    Ep. 66 | How to Use the Enneagram to More Effectively Communicate with Your Kids & Spouse with Becky Williams

    Ep. 66 | How to Use the Enneagram to More Effectively Communicate with Your Kids & Spouse with Becky Williams

    This episode is everything you need to know about the enneagram. HAHAHAHA
    Jk. That's impossible.
    But today is a super fun episode because I get to talk to my friend Becky Williams about the enneagram, how she got into, and what she's discovered through her research.
    Newsflash - it's not just taking a test - it's really learning the numbers by their core desires, motivations, values, fears, and everything in between. We even talk about how we've been mistyped in the past... shoot... i honestly don't even know if mine is right right now!
    So, come on, let's dive into this super fun subject!
    Becky is a relationship coach who helps Christian women strengthen their emotional muscles, develop mutually respectful and intimate marriages, and create family routines that foster peace and ease. She is obsessed with the idea that when we truly understand how God created us to be from the inside out that all other areas fall into place, which impacts how we communicate with our family and the level of connection with our spouse. She loves to join in discussions about Christian values, Enneagram coaching, communication building, self discovery, parenting strategies, and soooo much more. She lives in Louisiana with her husband, Ken, 3 kids, dog and stray cat that adopted her.

    Ep. 65 | How Mindset Has Helped Fight Cancer with Marge Budensiek

    Ep. 65 | How Mindset Has Helped Fight Cancer with Marge Budensiek

    Oohh today's episode is so powerful!! I get to talk to Marge Budensiek, life coach for women facing a cancer diagnosis. If you don't know anyone who has faced this, you may not know how you'd ever deal with this if it should ever come up for you. But what Marge and I discuss is how to move through it with optimism and strength.
    After being diagnosed with cancer in February 2020, Marge realized that cancer was something that happened, and she could decide what she wanted to think about it. “Making the decision on what I wanted to think made the whole journey empowering for me.” After being certified as a life coach Marge now wants to help other women diagnosed with cancer thrive through their journey.
    It will no doubt be a strenuous road, but listening to Marge, you will walk away knowing there is really something to this mindset stuff. Your mind is a beautiful tool and you CAN and must use it to your advantage. But we have to learn to slow down and process our thoughts and emotions with grace.
    Listen in as Marge and I dive into this tough subject!

The bonus episode about "who you are and why you need systems" really spoke to me. I have a tendency to sometimes get overwhelmed with my Church stuff, and my wanting to return to school for Grad School and it can stress me out...but this podcast really connected with me and gave me some tools which can (and will) be used to make me feel less stressed!!!!!
