When we feel stuck and we’re not happy with where we are in life, how do we feel empowered enough to change? In this episode, I discuss 6 ways to get out of our own way so that we can pursue the life God has for us. I also share my love of animated series, and respond to some hate mail
Can we have it all? What exactly is having it "all"? Should we even be seeking "all"? This episode I discuss work life balance from my own life experiences, and from a biblical perspective. I also share my podcast and YouTube recommendations and answer a question about Christian hypocrisy.
New year, new opportunity to reflect and make 2019 your best year yet. This episode we discuss investing in ourselves, in our relationship with God, and our relationship with those around us.
I’m back and blessed, here to share with you another episode of the podcast. Informal and intimate, I talk about my recent battles with depression, self care, seeking God and a therapist, setting expectations in relationships and dating practices. A little all over the place, but a lot of honesty. It feels good to be back :)
The topic that’s on everyone’s mind that’s rarely talked about: Sex and Celibacy. Let’s talk about it. This episode we talk about why God tells us to abstain, how to date while celibate and create boundaries, and I answer the questions you sent in!
We often have the audacity to tell God what we can and cannot do. We tell him we're not good enough, we're not qualified enough. sometimes we have been told over and over again that we aren't good enough and we begin to believe it. This episode we remind ourselves that we need to think bigger than our limitations.
In a world where so many are looking to money, fame, and success, we know to turn to God for true happiness. In this episode, I discuss the key to happiness and answer a question sent in by a person who finds herself for the first time not dating someone and not knowing what to do with herself.
This episode I share an intimate look into my personal self care journey. I rip off the nice veil of #selfcare and get deep into the ways that i reach back and apologize to myself to help me heal. I talk about the Happier Mind Journal as a tool to help me grow in gratitude and ground me to help me with anxiety and other things I struggle with.

Bible Verses for This Episode:
Luke 12:6-7 ESV "Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows."
Proverbs 2:1-5 ESV "My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God."
2 Corinthians 9:6 ESV "The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully."
How do I adult? This podcast episode we focus on that big question, as well as the questions that you sent in to me about being an adult. We talk about growing up in our faith, and also in our day to day lives. You don't wake up one day and suddenly feel like an adult. You're an adult when you realize that your success and your happiness are all in your hands.

Question for the podcast? - email@example.com
In church we know that when the pastor says "God is Good" we are supposed to say "All The time" Despite the fact that this is our automatic response, there are times when we struggle and wonder, is God really good? When things are hard? When people Die? When the world is in chaos? Lets have an open conversation about whether or not God is Good when things are bad.
In this episode, for Spiritual Care (07:50), we answer the question "When things are Bad is God Still Good?" In the Self Care section (30:30), we discuss talking to parents about mental health. And I answer a listener's question (40:30) about advice for getting closer to a significant other's parents.
