Let's have Wide Open Conversations about Whole Health, Spiritual Family Life, and Wellness. No one cares for your family more than YOU. No one knows your body more than YOU. Be the health hero in your story, and rise up to advocate for the WHOLE family!
511 - Let's Get Back to Life!
Today is Michael Shroyer's birthday -- his seventh birthday that we're celebrating without his life here on earth.
This episode will give you a glimpse into the content that is coming soon with the 511 Wholeness Journey, and how YOU can get involved!
Let's get Back to Life!
Friday Five - Thoughts, Thinks, Imaginings
Sometimes we need to reign in our thoughts, and set the mind on higher things.
A friend who has overcome severe addiction told me that it took him a while to ready his mind for what it would take, and that's a great point!
It's not easy, but is much needed.
Sometimes we can help reset our calm with simple things like making the bed, cleaning out clutter — even one drawer, making the right kinds of foods, calling a friend, or taking a bath.
In this episode, I share a short clip from a song that I wrote on a kids' worship project. The song is based on Proverbs 3:5-6. In the bridge, I wanted to use my four-year-old prayer "Bless my thoughts, my thinks, and my imaginings..." so I adapted those words to ones that we can all relate to — young and old alike:
Bless my thoughts, my dreams, my imagination.
Step by step, Your delight, Your Creation.
And yes, renewing the mind is something that we will always seek and practice.
It is vital, for what we think, we become.
So set your mind on higher things this weekend.
Join me Tuesday for the next Wide Open Conversation!
Thoughts, Thinks, Imaginings
When I was a little girl, I would end each prayer with, "And God, bless my thoughts, my thinks, and my imaginings... and Lord, please give me a puppy."
Today, we hear a lot of teaching around MINDSET.
Let's have a conversation about it!
(Ignore the dog noises in the background — clearly, God has answered that prayer time and time again, and I love dogs!)

Guard your heart and mind this week!
You are loved.
Be Love, Beloved.
Five Minute Friday - Life to Life (Good Friday)
So much for keeping it to FIVE minutes!
I get excited about Resurrection, and as a follow up to Tuesday's Life to Life Conversation, many friends sent me their stories of struggle with faith during times of tragic loss.
Here is Steven Curtis Chapman's song Rememberer to Remember that I referenced https://youtu.be/pD5Zrh0Zb2w (live) or here https://youtu.be/uJz_rv5qC4s (official studio version)
Happy Weekend - God says, "It is my JOY" as He reconciles His people!
Celebrating and Remembering - The Gift of LIFE!
Life to Life & Back to Life Again
It's Passion Week! [Passion: endurance through suffering]
I LOOOOOOVE everything about Easter week celebrations.
What Jesus so generously gave in order to bring us out of death and into life deserves to be celebrated year round.
In this episode, I share a secret to living with hope and resilience.
It has everything to do with the power of the Cross, and in its shadow-to-resurrected-power, we find Life and Life again.
Have a beautiful week.
Talk to your kids about the Life and Resurrection of Jesus.
Our minds, our longings, and our suffering find reframe, and seeds of purpose will rise.
Friday Five - Conversation with J Michael
Easter is my FAVORITE time of year!!!
This is the Back to Life week of all back to life weeks of each year, and I'm excited for next Tuesday!!!
For now, here is a recap of just a couple of great comments J Michael had in our last episode, and some thoughts on HUMILITY.
Humility is a precursor to creativity, to love, to connection, and to life.
Let's put on humility this week as we honor the Passion of Christ, the One who brought us Back to Life!
Ami does a great job of connecting to listeners. She's so honest and open! I listen and think, "What in the world would I do if I were in this position of being a widow?" You'll be encouraged for sure, no matter which episode you listen to.
Salve to the soul
My heart feels lighter after receiving these words from Ami and Michael 💕 Incredible invitation to help hurt hearts heal. Thank you for sharing Gods heart through a field of daisies 🌼
What a gentle invitation to grow through our grief
Ami is such a gentle guide pointing us toward joy and hope even in the middle of incredible pain. She stewards her husband’s legacy so beautifully and it’s an honor to grow through his words. This podcast will help you feel seen, known, and deeply loved.
