    Hallee Bridgeman - Learning more about Messianic Judaism and Hanukkah

    For our last episode of 2021 and the first day of Hanukkah, we welcome back one of our favorite guests - Hallee Bridgeman. You may recall from our first episode with Hallee that she is an award winning author and an amazing cook, but we invited Hallee on this week to hear more about her faith as a Messianic Jew. We learned so much from Hallee and know that you will enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed spending time with her.

    Thankful, Grateful, Blessed - Reflecting on the Past, Present and Future

    Thankful, Grateful, Blessed - Reflecting on the Past, Present and Future

    On today’s episode, in anticipation of Thanksgiving, Hannah and Stephani take the opportunity to reflect on 2021 and to share some dreams God has planted on their hearts for the future. 

    We had such a great time sharing together and we wanted to give you the opportunity to reflect on some of the same questions we asked one another. So we created a fun PDF that so you too can reflect and give thanks for what God has done in your life this year and maybe even use it as a conversation starter around  your own Thanksgiving table. 
    You can download that here:

    Melanie Hill - MomLife Ministries

    Melanie Hill - MomLife Ministries

    MomLife began in the fall of 2017 with two moms—Melanie Hill and Christy Crosby—and a team of some fun and creative friends. They had a simple and clear vision in mind: to see groups of moms in all ages and stages connect to God and each other through community. Understanding that being a mom can feel isolating and lonely, they wanted to create a safe space for moms to come together and be seen, cared for, loved, and spurred on in their faith in Christ and who he has created them to be. 
    After four years in its founding church (Grace Community Church in Clarksville, TN), Melanie and Christy saw the need to expand MomLife. They wanted to reach moms outside of their church,  community, and beyond. In the spring of 2021, Melanie decided to launch MomLife Ministries, and she hopes it’s a helpful tool for both churches and individual moms who want to gather with groups of friends to talk about life, faith, and how the two deeply interact. 
    MomLife Ministries is here to provide teachings, training, ideas, resources, and tools that are adaptable to any group of moms—be it in a home setting, coffee shop, or large church gathering. The first steps in building connections often feel awkward and challenging, so we hope to make it a little easier.
    MomLife Ministries is fully led by volunteers who are passionate about loving on and serving other mommas.

    Deb McCain - Communi-Tea

    Deb McCain - Communi-Tea

    With a deep love for people, Deb has dedicated her adult life to helping others achieve their personal and/or professional goals. Ms. McCain grew up in the Akron, Ohio area and got her degree in Business, Marketing from the University of Akron. Upon graduation, she began a career in advertising where she worked as an Associate Media Director for two different ad agencies in the Akron area buying and planning media for Goodyear and others. From there, Deb was recruited into a sales management career in radio working for blockbuster radio stations WGAR and WNCX in Cleveland. There she worked with sales teams to achieve their revenue goals. In ‘99, Deb’s great desire was to be an entrepreneur and launch her own business and so she left radio to start Sierra Marketing, a boutique recruiting firm for media companies. Sierra’s clients included top national media companies like Cox Media, Cox Media Group, Valpak, Curtis Media Group, Raycom and others. These client’s tapped Sierra to cast a wide net for top sales and sales management talent across the U.S. After 21 years in recruiting, Ms. McCain decided it was time to make a career shift so in 2019, she began a career as a realtor helping people in middle TN accomplish their home ownership goals. In ’20, she won the esteemed title of Rookie of the Year for her firm, United Real Estate Middle TN.
     In additional to a robust career of over 35 years in advertising, sales and recruiting, Deb has a passion for introducing or reintroducing people to Jesus Christ. In April of 2020, in the midst of Covid, the Lord gave Deb the download of an idea for a virtual tea party with a topical discussion that would be a means to help women stay connected and encouraged during seasons of isolation. This was the seed of an idea that birthed Communi-Tea, a virtual tea party for women. Visit the website at www.communi-teaparties.com for more information
     Deb and her husband Tyler have 6 kids and at current count, 8 grandchildren and reside in middle TN with their miniature Aussie, Shelby. Deb loves to travel and has been to more than 10 countries. Her greatest desire is to draw closer in her relationship with the Lord and to help other women do the same.
