Heidi McCahan is an Alaska grown author now living in North Carolina with her husband and family. We talk about the highs and lows of growing up in Alaska and how it really shaped us. There really is something special about growing up in Alaska that bonds people together. I loved talking to Heidi about the career she dreams of, what she does when she is told NO from publishers, how she continues to press on and how she has found such a rich community in the author world. Heidi is so sweet and I am sure you will be encouraged today with what she shares.

Heidi is the author of many books her two newest being THE FIRE FIGHTERS TWINS and SAY YOU WON’T GO

Hannah Lugibhil is this voice on the internet that speaks wise words from her blog COLD COFFEE HOT MESS she speaks and writes in such a real and honest way of life and motherhood. It’s not always glamorous but Hannah makes this space seem a little less lonely! She lives and writes her motto so clearly…”Real life talk for Real life moms”

Earlier this year Hannah was tested for the BRCA-2 gene mutation that puts you at a higher risk for breast cancer. She tested positive for it and now all this year she has been making decisions that will help her prevent breast cancer in her future.

Hannah has a heart of gold. She is talented beyond measure in both her writing and painting. I really feel like her voice is one that constantly points me to Jesus and while this conversation was the first of many we’ve had she is a friend I look to in so many ways. I appreciate her authentic sharing….motherhood is hard and we are not a lone!!…I love her heart for the Lord and her desire to point others to Him. And her friendship just means the world to me!

Happy 14th Anniversary to us! Our marriage is a ton of fun, we love to laugh, we have more inside jokes than I can even remember and sometimes we are oddly the same person. But it’s not always that way, and there have been plenty of tough seasons and we are here today to talk about it!

Jesse Tapley, my sweet husband, is back to talk about marriage. We discuss Highs and Lows of the different seasons and how we have tried, sometimes successfully and sometimes not!

While we realize we are not marriage experts we do have many years of experience and we are excited to share some our hits and misses with you!

Creator and Founder of Because I'm His Diana Carter is here to talk about life in ministry, navigating a hard season and learning to find her identity in Christ alone.

Diana's heart is so fun and full of life. I have loved getting to know her and every conversation we have leaves me feeling so much joy.  Her book DON'T JUST DEAL is so great and I love that she just saw a need and sat down to meet it. She is definitely the kind of girl that seeks the Lord in each step and walks with SO MUCH Faith!
