I believe everyone of us has a uniquely beautiful story, written with our lives. I have been encouraged to live out my life, by the stories of women around me - and my hope is that you are encouraged, too!
Ep. 47: Katie Mahoney / Beautifully Different Dreams
Hi friends! It's me, your very part-time podcaster. ;) I finally sat down to edit this encouraging conversation I had back in MARCH, with my friend, Katie Mahoney. (How does time fly by so quickly?!?) You might laugh at the fact that it is now fall, but back then she mentions "March Madness basketball", but no matter how many months have passed, this conversation is beautiful and relevant. Katie shares the turn of events that led to her pre-term delivery of their first precious son, Keon (one of my favorite little guys!), and the lessons they have learned along the way, as they raise and love a son with Cerebral Palsy. The way Katie fights for Keon and works as a team with her husband, Ryan, to raise both of their boys, is a huge encouragement to me. I know you will love hearing this chat, no matter where you are in your life's journey.Katie mentions a couple of books that have given her direction:We Carry Kevin and A Different Dream For Your ChildShare this podcast with a friend.... and go out and live your own uniquely beautiful story. xo
Ep. 46: Lauren Elaine Hunt / Beautiful Dreams
Hi friends! Today I had the joy of sitting down with a woman I have known for two decades, and have literally watched her pursue and achieve her dreams. Lauren-Elaine is the owner of Dance Studio 150, and was nominated in the Arts Category for the "30 Under 30" award in 2019.
In addition to pursuing her calling to teach dance, LE is a wife to Matt, a mom of two and a follower of Jesus. I think you will be encouraged by her story... and I hope you are able to stop and reflect on moments when God has shown up right in the middle of your mess.

Marriage Matters: Cherish
Friends, it's time for the final episode in our marriage mini-series. This time Garrick and I chat about what seems to be the least talked about and understood of the vows we made to each other: to cherish. What does that mean? What does it look like to cherish each other? How can we practically make sure our spouse feels cherished? Listen in! We hope you are encouraged to pour time and energy into your marriage... because your marriage matters! Go out and live your own uniquely beautiful love story!
Marriage Matters: Celebrate
Hi Friends! The McAnears are back this week, talking all about celebration! In cultivating a strong marriage, the art of celebration - celebrating each other, our differences, our victories & our marriage - is an important aspect. Today we talk about what that looks like practically and how celebration is more than throwing a good party (although that's one of my favorite things!). We hope you are encouraged to see your spouse as a gift - all of the things that make them who they are. Learning to celebrate even the hard seasons and our "unlovely" qualities opens up opportunities to learn and deepens our love for one another.
We hope you the episode and share it with a married couple in your life!
Shout out to my husband who went along with my dream of a "Roaring 20's" anniversary party for our 20th (pictured above)! 3
Marriage Matters / Connect
Hi friends! We are back with the next episode in our Marriage Matters mini-series: Connect.
Today, Garrick joins me and we chat about how to cultivate a healthy marriage by regularly connecting relationally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Life is busy and full. If we aren't careful, our interactions will only be limited to exchanging the facts about our day, children and schedules, even though we know intimacy grows as we intentionally connect with one another on deeper levels.
Join us as we seek to pursue a lifelong love affair, connecting deeper as the years go by!

Marriage Matters / Cultivate
Hi Friends! Welcome to the first episode in a very special mini-series on marriage, where my one and only joins me in the studio!
Garrick and I have a passion for marriage and have been working with married couples for many years... so I asked him to join me for a few episodes to share his wisdom.
In today's episode we talk about the "whys" and "hows" to cultivating a healthy marriage, keeping in mind that we are always planting something into our marriage - whether healthy or unhealthy habits. We also chat about what it looks like to live an intentional life, keeping the "end" in mind.
We hope you love this episode and are encouraged to have a good conversation with your spouse - maybe over a Valentine's dinner. ;)
