#63 Dr Kathy Koch
As we dive into season #2, I have the pleasure of sharing an interview I recorded last year with a special friend of mine.
Dr. Kathy Koch earned a Ph.D. in reading in educational psychology from Purdue University. She was a tenured associate professor of education at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, a teacher of second graders, a middle school coach, and a school board member before becoming a full-time conference and keynote speaker in 1991. She has loved Jesus for years. And her faith and desire to serve and glorify God is the foundation of her ministry. She is the founder and president of Celebrate Kids. She's influenced 1000s of parents, teachers, and children in 30. Countries through keynote messages, seminars, chapels, and other events.
Heather Shore is the CEO and co-founder of Women of HERstory, and co-host of Women of HERstory: A
Podcast. As a performing artist, when the COVID-19 pandemic swept through NYC, she knew she had to
embark on a new adventure- entrepreneurial- as there was no guarantee of when live theatre would be
making its’ way back to our stages. Heather has always had a passion for history, and the discrepancies
in representation of women in the archives. Women of HERstory is dedicated to celebrating women who
have made, or are making, their mark on society. The juxtaposition of women of the past with
interviews with women of today helps us to realize how far we’ve come, how far we still have to go, and
brings recognition to women who have otherwise been edited down to a sentence in a textbook
chapter. She hopes to be able to expand the business and podcast to reach as many people as possible!
Throughout her life, Heather has pursued the arts in all forms, with a primary focus on the performing
arts. She has performed all over the world, including Kagoshima, Japan, and Florence, Italy. After
completing ballet education at North Central School of Ballet under the direction of Les Jordan III in
Keller, TX, Heather went to the University of North Texas to study dance. It was during this time that she
fell in love with Musical Theatre and everything it has to offer. Heather sang throughout her life, and MT
offered a combination of her two greatest loves, dancing and singing! That doesn’t mean she isn’t
interested in everything under the sun, from baseball and knitting to cooking and a particular obsession
with parkour, Heather strives to learn as much as she can about anything that comes across her path.
After a dear friend’s life was tragically and suddenly cut short just before entry into University, Heather
decided that life was too short to not take risks to make your dreams come true. After a few years at
UNT, and scrimping as many pennies as possible, Heather packed up four suitcases and moved to New
York City. She hit the ground running and booked numerous concerts, tours, and shows across the United States and the globe.

Pamela believes now is the time to prepare for the harvest. She has written several books on how we as the body of Christ need to be more equipped and strengthen our faith to navigate the times we are in.
Christians, people who have been mature Christians for quite a while if we focus on the wrong things, we can end up in fear and doubt, anxiety, and a number of other things that will actually impair our ability to experience Christ's victory.
What has really deepened my relationship with God, is hardships, going through a number of very serious hardships after becoming a Christian and resolutely determining, to rely on God is who He says He is. And he will do what he says he will do, to pour over Scriptures to see the promises that he has provided us. I'm so grateful. God has provided us the Bible, His written Word, it gives us such a beautiful place of reference to make sure everything that we are standing on and believing in aligns with truth.
The church has been relegated to the background and considered irrelevant. The reputation of the church has been very poor.
These are the days we must be bold because if we don't share the truth, we will stand before God and he will ask us, what did we do with the Great Commission?

Joel Patchen - The Value of Life
In September of this year, the Texas Heartbeat bill went into effect. The battle for life is on a fast track to the supreme court. This week I had the opportunity to interview a man very involved in fighting for the value of life, Joel Patchen.
Joel is the author of five books including the “ Who Am I” bible study, a comprehensive overview of the value and dignity of life from the biblical perspective.
Joel’s life was radically changed after 40 days spent with his daughter, Brooke, in a neonatal intensive care unit. His daughter challenged everything he thought he knew about life, abortion, and the value of the human person. As an educator and the son of a Christian minister, Joel thought he had a pretty good handle on life. But he was wrong! Life was so much more than he knew.
During the winter of 2002/2003, life took on a new dimension for Joel. His daughter Brooke was born at 29 weeks gestation, almost three months before her due date, on December 13, 2002. Her arrival changed Joel’s life—He would never be the same!
During the next 39 days that she lived on earth, he witnessed firsthand her development. He had the privilege of watching Brooke and the other babies ranging from 24 to 38 weeks gestation grow and mature in plain sight. This was the first time in his life that he faced the concrete reality of fetal development and life in the womb. His experience with these children, who should still have been in the womb, completely refuted the lies in our culture concerning preborn babies. As he watched the medical staff care for these little ones, it gripped him that several other children at this stage of development are aborted in our country every day. It was after this revelation and experience with Brooke that he began my journey to actively defend the preborn and fight against abortion.

Melissa Bright - Living Life on The Bright Side
Melissa Bright is the host and creator of the Bright Side of Life Podcast. She was ranked number seven out of 50 and top moms in podcasting and podcast magazine this year.
On her podcast, She talks to people that have been through struggles and pains in their life and how they found their path back to the bright side, (whatever that means to them)
She believes that happiness and looking on the bright side is all about mindset, and these stories navigate and discuss people's successful journeys to happiness.
Some of her topics have included: divorce, cancer survivor, trauma, suicide prevention, abandonment, addiction, finding God, therapy, and many more.
Last year before Covid, I was a travel agent and had to make a major change.
During this time she did a lot of self-reflecting and asked herself what made her heart hurt. In doing this, She realized that she hates people feeling alone in their own struggles.
So that's how and why the podcast came to be.
"And I was kind of like, felt my worth was helping contribute to the family. And I just felt alone in my struggles, like I felt a lot of people probably did, even though we were all going through something globally, we all kind of felt alone in this also. And so I kind of had this heart-to-heart conversation with myself and said If travel isn't going to be the thing that I'm doing right now because traveling is nonexistent. I need to figure out what it is that I want to do. And I had listened to a podcast and a lady was talking about how she found her purpose in her life. And she kind of explained it and said, when you look out into the world, and you see something, and it hurts your heart, and you want to know how you can change that and how you can make a world a better place, then you know, you found your purpose."
Melissa shares about the loss of her mother, grandmother, and father in a short span of time. She found herself without anyone close for support.
Enter in and hear how Melissa found her hope once again.
