    109. All Good Things End: My Finale Episode

    109. All Good Things End: My Finale Episode

    To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven.
    (Eccl 3:1 NKJV)
    If you’ve been listening for a while, you may have noticed some consistency back towards the end of last year and then a drop off. I had a team of 2 amazing women who helped me produce this podcast and to show up consistently on social media. In November after attending an influencer event in Nashville, I started some soul searching around this podcast. I made the decision to not invest financially in having a team to edit and produce the podcast and help me with my social media presence on IG @strongherme. I had no idea when I made that decision, that a few months later, I would be making another bigger decision about the podcast.
    I’ve cried a few tears thinking about all I plan to share with you today. 
    My first episode of this podcast went live Feb 2017. Back then it was name the StrongHer podcast. If you go back and listen to that first episode, it’s a clip of my message from the 2017 You Are Stronger Than You Think Women’s Event. Our theme that year was Who Am I? In that episode I share the origins of the 'You Are Stronger Than You Think' message, stories from my own life of how God uncovers purpose and calling.
    The previous year’s event included a Friday night event and 5K race. 
    It came with some harsh criticism from an attendee. 
    - it was my greatest fear and my wakeup call: I needed to be the leader my vision deserved. I needed to ask for help; I needed to push beyond the fear of criticism to be a more brave and authentic leader. 
     
    After some deep reflection, prayer and talks with my husband and friends, I’m discerning it’s time to bring this podcast to a close. My initial purpose for starting this podcast was to have a platform to share women’s stories and their expertise, as I affirmed women that there is grace to be successful as keepers of the home and as professional women.
    This journey has produced more in my life than I could have known to ask for and the growth I’ve experienced in 4 years, in part, due to the discipline of publishing this podcast, is something that I not only wouldn’t trade, but I also highly recommend this or some other creative pursuit that requires you to stretch, as your own personal development tool. 
    Here are just 3 of the ways I’ve grown, as a direct result of this pursuit:
    I’ve learned authenticity through this podcast. It has required me to process my own thoughts about topics. I’ve learned new skills, capabilities (listening, interviewing, technical skills around podcasting). I’ve learned new things about myself.
     
    I’ve reclaimed my voice through this podcast.
    When I say “voice”, sometimes I’m referring to your actual voice; other times I’m referring to your influence, your mission, your values, your perspective, your story. Your voice is one of the parts of you that identifies you in this world.
     
    I’ve learned how to tend to my own heart while staying faithful to a vision in my heart/soul, without constant validation of its impact. Talk about Hebrews 3,4.
    Hebrews 3: 12 Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. 13 You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. 14 For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ.
    Hebrews 4: 6 So God’s rest is there for people to enter, but those who first heard this good news failed to enter because they disobeyed God. 10 For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world. 11 So let us do our best to enter that rest. 
    These 3 things alone are enough for me. I am confident I have gone all in with this  and that before I could even recognize or articulate it, God has been ordering my steps and working

    108. We Find What We Look For with Alexandra Kuykendall

    108. We Find What We Look For with Alexandra Kuykendall

    I hope you will be challenged and inspired by this week's episode of the podcast. I am talking with my friend and fellow "world changer for good", Alexandra Kuykendall.  Alex speaks on issues of how faith impacts everyday life. She encourages us to listen well and communicate with generosity and kindness. She has authored four books: Loving My Actual Life, Loving My Actual Christmas, The Artist’s Daughter: A Memoir, Loving My Actual Neighbor and her newest, "Seeking Out Goodness: Finding the True and Beautiful All around You". Philippians 4:8 tells us where to center our thought life. It is the roadmap for seeking out goodness.  How does considering what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable in someone else show us more of God’s goodness?
    After the last 2 years we've had, is it possible for us to still see the good in others?
    In this episode Alex, ultimately, reminds us that we find what we're looking for and the more we seek out goodness and the more we look for the positive, the easier it will be for our brains to identify what is good. When we are encourage our listeners to look for the good. This is not a dismissal of accountability. It's a challenge to not conform to the attitudes and behaviors of the culture around us, but to make room for the Holy Spirit to transform our thinking through the truth of scripture.

    107. What Works for You with La'Vista Jones

    107. What Works for You with La'Vista Jones

    For the 1st episode of 2022, I'm joined by one of my dearest friends, La’Vista Jones. La’Vista is the founder and CEO of 31 Marketplace, an agency committed to helping women cultivate their own culture of work-life balance by leveraging systems and self-care. 

    As a burnout survivor and recovering overfunctioner, she knows firsthand that the path to success does not have to include subscribing to hustle culture, exhaustion and overbooked schedules. On a mission to promote burnout prevention, La’Vista is a professional speaker and host of the B.O.S.S.™ Talk podcast, where she and her guests speak candidly about the challenges and shifts needed to build sustainable and self-nurturing businesses. La’Vista is an Ohio native and bleeds scarlet and grey – go Buckeyes! She’s married to her college sweetheart Stewart and they share their home in Arizona with their son, publicly known as The Cub.
    La’Vista has been my guest for previous episodes when we talked about goal planning at the top. This year I asked her to join me in taking a different approach to this conversation.
    In this episode we invite you in to see how we determine and internalize our word for the year and some of our ongoing methods for staying on top of our goals and why neither of us is buying a pretty planner this year.
    You will hear our different approaches, because to stay consistent you have to do what works for you.
