SHOW NOTES 017 Stephanie May Wilson

 

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3IMG_0538

Check out this weeks episode here

Y’all I am SO excited to introduce you to Stephanie if you haven’t already met her online. She is seriously the sweetest and if felt like sitting down with an old friend. Stephanie has an amazing story that is all written down in her book, Lipstick Gospel. I love the work that Stephanie does from guiding women into new and deep friendship, to helping women make the most of their single lives.

I think my favorite part of this time with Stephanie is that she wants to help others have a deep and real relationship with God but her goal is to help you meet God right where you are, not like He a scary principal but to have conversations with Him, like He is your best friend.

I got to ask her for some advice for my dear babysitter who is headed off on an adventure around the world called WORLD RACE and I love what Stephanie said. “Be like  play dough.” Don’t be afraid of change! Embrace the differences! I just loved that and I know that we could all grow from that!

I just hope you love Stephanie as much as I do. I just adore her and her heart for friendship, and not just mediocre friendship but true and lasting friendship. She says, “Friendship is not something to be looked over but something to approach with intentionality!”

OKAY….So in this episode I TOTALLY missed spoke…Can anyone tell me what I said incorrectly?! The First person who tells me what I said wrong will win a free KOOZIE!!!

Here is a list of Stephanie’s Books:

Lipstick Gospel

Lipstick Gospel Devotional & Prayer Journal

SHOW NOTES 016 Susan Ramirez

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3

fullsizeoutput_5169

Listen to this weeks episode 

AUSTIN ANGELS Founder and CEO Susan Ramirez is so passionate about the children in the foster care system. She started out just volunteering and loving on kids in the system and that transitioned to an organization that has now been nationally recognized. Austin Angels partners with families that are fostering, they are intentionally engaging in relationships with kiddos and family to show love and support. This is key because fostering a child can be so isolating and being a foster child is SO difficult. So imagine these kids who have been removed from their lives now in a new place but being loved on, supported, encouraged and given monthly gifts. As an adoptive mom and a friend to many foster mommas I ADORE this program!

Susan and I met in the spring at the RISE conference put on my Rachel Hollis. When Susan and I first started talking I felt like we just clicked and I was BEYOND THRILLED when she agreed to be on the podcast. I love that Susan followed her calling, I love that she is setting HUGE goals..Like a Austin Angels chapter in ever major City. I love big dreams and goals like that, and I do not believe it is too far fetched!

When I asked Susan her best tips for being a friend she gave some great advice: Praying for friends, texting, carving out intentional time with friends so we can be support and love on our friends

If you feel led to be make a Angel Ambassadors monthly giving commitment follow through! Don’t let today pass you by!!

OR if you feel led to start a chapter GOOO!! I am cheering you on friend!!

I just loved todays conversation. Susan is following the Lords leading and I am SO excited to see how He grows this work!

SHOW NOTES 015 AMANDA SHOOK

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3

Selfie - Amanda Shook

Check out this weeks episode!

Amanda Shook is a real life friend of mine. She lives in our shared hometown of Kenai Alaska and is just the sweetest. I know that I say that about every guest I have on, but they are all my friends and I don’t think I’d have friends that weren’t super sweet! ANYWAYS! Amanda is one of the first people I knew that started a “side hustle”.  I am so excited for you guys to hear how she started her Etsy shop, how it transitioned and what came of it. I think one thing I love the most about this episode is that Amanda didn’t just stay where she was, or with what she was doing. She shifted and she needed to. She stepped back when she wasn’t feeling her healthiest and she looked for an alternative path. I know that’s something I get stuck in…I started here and now I can never change!

I hope that you enjoy this conversation with Amanda, it really was just two friends sitting down and catching up on life.

ALSO, if you have any questions regarding oils, Young Living or anything along those lines I know that Amanda would be SO happy to help you!! You can send her a Message on Instagram or head to her website!

SHOW NOTES 012 KATIE GANSHERT

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3author shot - Katie Ganshert

Check out this episode!

Katie Ganshert is a wife and amazing mom to two sweet kiddos. I met her while we were both in the process of adopting our sweet daughters from the DRC in Africa. We each have a daughter with special needs and that is something we continue to bond over.

After I read some of her books I had a TOTAL fan girl moment…I KNEW HER and SHE WROTE THESE BOOKS!! It was a pretty dramatic moment in my head! Katie is so wise and kind and I love that she came on the show to tell us all about her latest book NO ONE EVER ASKED. Which I have read and will not stop talking about. I believe the conversations that will happen because of this book will be the catalyst so much change!

Katie is passionate about many things, one being super mindful of her daughter seeing people who look like her. I love how her family just recently sold their house and moved so they could be apart of a more diverse community and their heart behind it all is so pure.

With a Heavy Heart

My heart breaks this week as we have seen some very well known people succumb to suicide. I don’t know their hearts, their struggles, their families or ANYTHING about them. Yet my heart breaks.

They say suicide rates are up. We are in a world where we are “connected” all the time. Yet are often so alone.

We see highlight reels and think everyone is happy or ok and we take that for an answer. Or at least a good enough answer.

But sometimes, maybe most of the time, that’s not real life.

Sometimes we need to ask more. Dig deeper. Stop expecting those who are hurting to reach out to you. We must reach out. We must do more.

The desire of my heart is to bridge this gap. Not to fix you, but to be there for you. To be your friend. To be there in those times when you feel alone. To point you to help, professional and spiritual.

Friend, you are loved. You are needed, treasured, precious, and so loved!

Please don’t try to do this thing alone.

 

SHOW NOTES 011 JENNYLYNN ADLETA

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3

Check out this weeks episode here

I can’t tell you how much this sweet friend of mine has wiggled her way into my heart. JennyLynn is PRECIOUS to me. She is so fierce, strong and I love that she is using her voice to tell her story. Her story is not this fairytale of Happily Ever After but struggle, faithfulness, perseverance and joy.

She tells her story in such raw way, she’s a hold nothing back story teller. Her heart is so pure and full of joy to help others in her community.

I LOVE that she kept a journal for her future husband, that she wrote to him when she was happy, sad, and longing for him, not knowing when he would come into her life.

WITHOUT A VISION PEOPLE PERISH 

JennyLynn reminds me almost daily that each day is such a gift and that when she was at her lowest or sickest that she begged God to allow her to live and that she would never take her days for granted.

Her story is AMAZING and I love how she tells it so honestly.

This girl, Y’all I can’t!

If you are in a season of loneliness remember we are here.

The internet isn’t always a bad thing. The beauty of the internet or social media is that we really do have community at the tip of our fingers.

SO friends don’t be afraid to reach out and help us create our community!

SHOWNOTES 009 FLOSSIE FOSTER

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3IMG_0540

Check This Weeks Episode Here

Flossie is a friend I’ve known for basically my whole life. She grew up with my little sister and they were a part of this big group of girls that traveled like they were in a pack.

I have loved watching Flossie bloom into the wonderful woman she is today. She is a wife, mom, and entrepreneur. She is also a good and loyal friend to all of those around her.

One of my favorite things that Flossie said in todays conversation was how competition does nothing for any of us. It just brings out the ugly and we don’t need any of that. I also loved that Flossie talked about wanting to be fully present with her son, and also with her business. She doesn’t want to worry about needing to split time with the two. So I love that she asks for help, and has some good boundaries in place.

Y’all. I let a little bit of my crazy show again today. FLOSSIE’S GRANDPA MADE FIREWORKS FOR WALT DISNEY WORLD!!!! I cannot even imagine being raised with that man as a grandpa…How stinking cool!!!

One thing I loved that she said was how her Grandpa (my hero…Obviously) encouraged her to start her own company. I think that is seriously the most precious thing!

DON’T FORGET Flossie is offering 15% off in her Boutique to y’all! So go show her an yourself some love!!

I loved talking to Casey. She is such a sweet and wise friend! Casey and her husband live their day to day lives with such purpose and in this episode she tells us all why. She is the mom to 6…yes SIX kiddos, all adopted and each so special.

I have LOVED watching her family grow and have been so inspired by their love for adoption and the marginalized. Dan and Casey started a ministry called CHRIST IN THE MARGINS where they are having very hard and real conversations with anyone and everyone.
