Listen to this weeks episode!

Jenny Marrs is wife to Dave and mom to 4 super cute kids! She is one of the first blogs about adoption I really started reading. I followed their journey because it so closely paralleled ours and I loved seeing other families struggling well.

Jenny and her husband Dave do so much and i love that they do it so often for the gain of others! They started by serving and feeding kids in an orphanage where their daughter was and that led to feeding 3 others and now they are partnered with Help One Now Zimbabwe.

Bentonville Berry Farm & Event Center if you are ever in the NW Arkansas area go check out the Berry Farm and help support their friends in Zimbabwe.

I am so excited for the first season of Almost Home show on HGTV to come out so I can fan girl all over Jenny and her sweet family!

020 SHOWNOTES JENNI LORD

Jenni Lord is a friend that I met through the organization CHOSEN CARES that she founded. We became fast friends while we were in the process of adopting Zoe. She and her family have loved on us in every stage and we are so thankful for them! I love Jenni’s heart for the vulnerable but also her heart for families and the desire to make sure families are whole, healthy and intact.

She started this non-profit CHOSEN over 10 years ago starting as a race (Marathon and Half Marathon) to provide aid to families adoption. I love how Chosen has evolved over the years and while their main focused used to be helping others in the process of adoption now they walk alongside families that are both in process of fostering, adopting and once your family is home doing the hard work of connecting, bonding and becoming a family. You can still run the race for a family but it has become so much more than that!

I also just LOVE that Jenni is from the REAL LIFE Friday Night Lights high school and I cannot believe she never mentioned that to me!

I love friends like Jenni that have so much heart and are giving it all for the Lord! She models this clearly in her work but she is also shining a BEAUTIFUL example of this to her girls and sweet son!

019 SHOWNOTES SABRINA SANDBERG

Check out this weeks episode!

Sabrina is a parenting coach at Peace at Heart Parenting. In todays conversation Sabrina shares her heart for helping parents...parent. She believes  most people need training and help as we learn to stop and take a step back so that we can consciously parent from a place of healing and love!

I asked her so many questions that this conversation turned into a mini counseling session for me! Sabrina is just so wise and I love her focus on Family Values as well as not "fixing" our children but fixing how we react. I know that, that alone will help me SO much in parenting.

Also, when Sabrina opens her next Connection 30 y'all need to JUMP IN IT! It's amazing how 10 minutes a day really can change the connection we have with our kiddos. I know it seems daunting but we all have 10 minutes and our children (AND US) can benefit so much from a closer connection!

Parent Speakhas quickly become Sabrina's favorite parenting book. She says, "Its super relatable and reminds us that our words have so much power with our kids!"

018 SHOW NOTES JEN DUFORE

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3IMG_1822

Check out this weeks episode!

Jen Dufore is a planner girl, but more than that she is a budget planning guru!

I love following Jen and her families journey to being debt free. She is really intentional about using her planners as a life planner and for setting up her families finances and paying off their debt.

I also love how Jen shares her mess, anxiety, and beautiful planner spreads. Jen does a great job sharing her life in the must functional way because like she says..."Real life doesn't always look good."

Jen is so authentic and I just love that about her. I think it says something about an Instagram friend when you can pick up the phone and just feel like you know them! I love seeing Jen in the process of life, there are times when we need to say no to things and practice self control but there are also times when we get to say YES and make sure we aren't missing out on amazing life experiences. And when we practice saying "NO" it makes saying "Yes" so much sweeter.

Jen is most known in the Planning community for how she uses her Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly Planner as a Budget Planner. She shares all of that on Instagram as well as over on YouTube. So if you want tips and tricks on budgeting (I know I do!) head over and watch her videos!

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!!!

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 013 JAMIE LANDERS

IT'S TIME FOR COFFEE-3 32506F37-0F37-4262-A0D6-D8B79B5A8A3D - Jamie Landers

Check out this episode here!

Jamie this awesome woman of God. She is a preacher, teacher, minster, mom, wife and friend to just about everyone who meets her. She is sweet, sassy and sarcastic and just a stinking hoot to be around.

In the past two years Jamie has launched a book RICH FOR GOOD and then started a new ministry NO STRINGS ATTACHED. In this ministry her and her team go into the strip clubs in Tulsa Oklahoma to meet, make friends and share the gospel with strippers. Not to shame and condemn them but to actively show the women, bouncers, bar tenders and really anyone who will talk to them the love of Christ. It is not always easy or pretty but I am so excited by the work they are doing.

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.
