Glorify God in your work. Start here.
The SundayMonday Show is a podcast about being bold in faith, work, and life.
It's an invitation to be the person God created you to be, both in your faith and in your career. It takes courage, conviction and community to be a woman who brings all that she is into the workplace. You're not in this alone: our mission is to equip and empower you to make it happen. Let's get to work.

93. Friendship, beauty, and raising eight kids with Adele Collins
I am SO excited to share this episode, a conversation with my new friend Adele who is such a beacon of beauty, joy, light, and holiness! Adele and her husband Ben have eight kids, ranging in age from 2 months to 16 years old, and her insights on womanhood, motherhood, friendship and prayer are so good. I can't wait for you to be as inspired by her as I am!

92. A guided meditation for trust
Join me in a little guided meditation this week! This is one of my favorite ways to pray when I'm struggling to settle down into prayer, and I know that with Thanksgiving this week we'll all be moving around a lot, so hopefully this is helpful for you too!
91. Are you available to God?
As we prepare to embark on the beauty and busyness of the holiday season, I wanted to pause to reflect on our common belief that our time is our own. Every moment of our lives is a gift freely given by God who is wild about us and wants our good! Are you being a good steward of that time? In this episode, I share reflections from St. Therese, St. Francis de Sales, and C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters, with the hope that we can all make a little more space to be available to God over these next busy months (and always!)
90. Moving, transitions, and making new friends
I've officially been back in DC for a little over two months and wanted to share some of what I've been learning in this time of transition! I share some of what God has been teaching me about making friends, surrendering my plans for His, and giving myself grace in a time of unknowns.

89. Surrendering control
In faith and life, one of the toughest struggles we face is our desire to be in control. It sometimes feels like we just can't help it – we grasp and fight and do everything we can to get what we want, or to make things happen. But God has so much more for us, and He wants to free us from this exhausting (and fruitless) fight. This week, I'm sharing three things that have helped me loosen my grip, trust God, and surrender control.
88. Let's talk about breakups
This one has been in the cooker for a while, and I was so glad to have my bff Erica Carnohan join me for a wide-ranging conversation about surviving a breakup. We covered all sorts of topics, including how you know when it's time to end a relationship, how to choose virtue and lean on God in healing, getting "through" and not "over" the breakup, and finding great joy in the midst of a pretty un-fun time. If you're going through it at the moment, please know of our prayers, and also know that God has SO much more for you ahead! We hope that this episode gives you a bit of encouragement!

Jane is a ray of sunshine and a pure gem in this world. She has a lot of wisdom, insight and great advice to bring to this world. Her voice is not just soothing, but her words are powerful.

Jane not only shares interesting information, but gives you something to think about after each episode. She has helped me a lot and I hope you helps you too!!
