    Pregnant with Cancer, Kristee Walker, Part 2

    Pregnant with Cancer, Kristee Walker, Part 2

    This episode is part two of a conversation especially near to my heart. Today I have the privilege of chatting with fellow cancer warrior momma, Kristee Walker. Meeting and conversing with other cancer survivors is always a sweet blessing as there is an instant camaraderie shared. In this episode, we're talking about what life looks like when you're diagnosed with cancer as a wife, mom & Christian.

    Kristee was diagnosed with cancer while she was pregnant and as a result did chemotherapy while pregnant, creating many additional challenges in addition to fighting for her life. In this episode we're diving into navigating a relationship with the God who could take it all away, what the day to day looks like with your family when you know it could be your last and more. Come join this conversation as a cancer patient, survivor, ally or caretaker for encouragement and solidarity from Kristee.

    Feel What You're Feeling with Jessica Hottle

    Feel What You're Feeling with Jessica Hottle

    Jessica Hottle is a faith-based podcast host, best-selling author, and speaker with a heart for teaching women how to dismantle the lies that keep them from healing and wholeness. In this episode we are holding space for deep conversation about our feelings and how they can lead us to truth. Throughout this conversation, you'll hear Jessica's story of deep pain and how she found God despite a painful past. Jessica says "Many of us allow our feelings to be the engine in our lives instead of the caboose. We are run by our feelings when we run away from them. But, we no longer have to run and hide from our feelings. Our feelings can lead us into a deeper relationship with God." Come listen in for hope, encouragement and soul satisfying rest.

    On Being Different with Bailey Moody, A Daughter's Perspective

    On Being Different with Bailey Moody, A Daughter's Perspective

    This week’s episode airs as the second part of a special mother-daughter mini series. In this episode we have the privilege of hearing from Bailey Moody, a childhood cancer & amputee warrior. We had the opportunity to hear from Bailey’s mom, Tiffany Moody, in the last episode on raising ‘non-typical’ kids and this week we get to hear from Bailey.

    Bailey is sharing her heart on what it was like to battle childhood cancer & what it has been like to grow up ‘non typical’. We also get to hear her perspective as a daughter on what was most helpful from her parents during that season & how her challenges have shaped her into the adult she is today (Spoiler alert: Bailey has gone on to become a part of the USA Paralympic team as well as a NCAA Division 1 basketball player at The University of Alabama.

    P.S. If you’re a momma struggling as you watch your child struggle, you’ll want to listen in to Bailey’s (and Tiffany’s) perspective. They have brought me so much hope & encouragement and I’m certain they will offer you the same.)

    On Being Different with Tiffany Moody, A Mother's Perspective

    On Being Different with Tiffany Moody, A Mother's Perspective

    This episode airs as the first part of a special mother-daughter mini series. In this episode we have the privilege of hearing from Tiffany Moody, the momma of a bi-racial family made up of many children with varying special needs- cancer, disabilities, ADHD, life threatening food allergies & adoption/trauma. In this episode Tiffany shares her heart about what it's like to raise non-typical kids with unique challenges- the good, the bad and the ugly. I am inspired by Tiffany as she offers us a glimpse into what it's like to raise resilient kids while finding joy & humor in the suffering.

    When The World Says 'It's Time To Move On' with Clarissa Moll

    When The World Says 'It's Time To Move On' with Clarissa Moll

    Today Clarissa Moll, award-winning writer and podcaster, shares her heart on loss. Clarissa knows the landscape of loss all too well as her life changed forever in 2019 when her husband, Rob, died unexpectedly while hiking—leaving her with four children to raise alone. This gal knows the Bible says that “God is near to the brokenhearted,” but she is on a mission to help people understand what that looks like when you’re lost in the darkness of agonizing grief. As we converse today, she helps unpack one of her favorite questions: How do you engage with your sorrow when the world tells you to move on?

    Clarissa’s writing appears in Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, RELEVANT, Modern Loss, Grief Digest, and more. She cohosts Christianity Today’s Surprised by Grief podcast and hosts The Writerly Life, the weekly hope*writers podcast. She holds a master’s degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and is a frequent guest on podcasts and radio shows. In her debut book, Beyond the Darkness, Clarissa offers her powerful personal narrative as well as honest, practical wisdom that will gently guide you toward flourishing amidst your own loss. You can find a copy of this book anywhere books are sold after it releases on July 5, 2022.

    It’s the week of my birthday (and can I emphasize how much more meaningful a  post-cancer birthday is much than a pre-cancer birthday?)… Would you join us in celebrating this special milestone birthday by gifting one of our signature tees to someone in need of hope today, whether that’s you or someone else?

    Tap this link to grab one of these tees for yourself, a friend or family member, or as a group of friends to champion someone in desperate need of a bit of hope right now. It will mean the world to the recipient (and bring even more joy to our celebration this week, knowing people who are deeply suffering are being loved on!).

Kelsico ,

So encouraging!

There is not enough talk about suffering as a Christian circulating out there considering how much the Bible has to say about this topic. This podcast speaks of exactly what people need to hear when they are going through difficult circumstances, and always really: Christ transcends this present life and its hardships, look to Him!
