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.40: Saundra Traywick / Beautiful Diagnosis
Friends, today I've got quite a story for you! Saudra Traywick shares the journey their family went on when her daughter, Hannah, developed an illness literally overnight. The symptoms were terrifying and left doctors confused, but Saundra was an advocate and researcher for her daughter and eventually got a diagnosis for PANDAS, an auto-immune disorder, attacking Hannah's brain. After trying medication and seeing little change, Saundra stumbled upon evidence that drinking donkey milk might help her, due to the incredible health benefits. Willing to try anything, they gave the milk to Hannah and the results were almost instant! Fast forward a couple of years and Saudra now runs FOUR different organizations all connected to donkey milk! You can order incredible beauty products here: https://dulcededonke.com/ and also find out more info about the benefits of the raw and freeze-dried milk. The Donkey Dairy Farm is hosting a FREE health event for families, ESPECIALLY those with sick children:

Ep. 38: Katie Harder / Beautiful Miles to Millie
Friends, you're going to love this chat with Katie Harder! She takes us through the story of how the Lord made it abundantly clear that she was no longer a "boy mom", by putting the longer for a daughter on her heart and even a face in her mind of a sweet Chinese baby. She and her husband began the year and a half process of adopting and in May 2019 traveled to bring Millie home! I know you will be encouraged by this story!
Also, #theluckyfew is the hashtag we chat about (do yourself a favor and look at the precious photos there!).
As always, I hope you share the show with a friend & go live your own story! xo
Ep. 37: Beautiful Ennea-Girls Return
Friends, you’re listening to episode 37 and today I have 3 beautiful guests - yes, 3! It’s a party in here! This is our 2nd Enneagram episode I’m calling the Ennea-girls RETURN + 1 (Joanna)!
Our 1st Enneagram episode was #18 and featured Hill (also on #12) + Claire (also on #16). Today we are adding one more “expert” to the lineup, who has also been on the show before, Joanna Willcox (on #30). So go back and listen to all those but today... we’ve got some great info for you all things Enneagram. Our listeners submitted questions and we are diving in!
In this episode we talk about Ian Cron and Suaznne Stabile, who we consider to be true experts. Any of their books or podcasts are high on our list of recommendations!
We hope this podcast is an encouragement to you and shed some light on the intricacies of the Enneagram, as we went a little nerdy!
Share this podcast with a friend, explore the Enneagram... and go live your own story! xo
Ep. 36: Lauren McAfee / Beautiful Millennial
Hi friends! Back for a 2nd episode on UBS is Lauren McAfee. (Check out her first ep. #15!) I sat down with Lauren to chat about the book she wrote with her husband, Michael. Their book, Not What You Think: Why the Bible Might be Nothing We Expected Yet Everything We Need, was released this May and addresses the tragic fact that millennials and Gen-Z are engaging with the Bible at alarmingly low rates. Among this demographic, the Bible is often misinterpreted, misunderstood and misrepresented. How in the world do we steer the ship back on course? To be honest, hearing these stats can feel overwhelming and heavy to me, but thankfully the McAfees have a different perspective. Lauren described to me the desire they felt to write a book truthfully addressing some of the most difficult aspects of the Bible, sharing their own doubts and struggles, then asking the reader to give the Bible a fair chance.
We also chat about what it was like writing with her husband AND she gave me the exciting update on the adoption journey they've been on for 6 years!
You will want to listen and pass this episode on to a friend!

Ep. 35: Paula Cummings / Beautiful Calling
Friends! If there ever was an episode that is the definition of this podcast, it's this one! Paula Cummings is a one-of-a-kind friend, who effortlessly wove her uniquely beautiful story throughout our entire conversation. Just like me, Paula believes that our calling is actually much easier to discover than many people think - we simply must look around us and see what God is up to and where we've been. He will use the experiences in our lives (ie: your uniquely beautiful story!), crossed with where He has us RIGHT NOW to reach who He has placed around us.
Paula and I chat about how God used some teen friends to bring her to Jesus and older women to mentor her, which is exactly where she now finds her passion - mentoring younger women.
Paula is so full of wisdom, you will NOT want to miss this conversation... and you'll definitely want to pass it on to a friend!
