We are a podcast that encourages open discussion about personal issues that our culture either does not want to talk about or simply does not know how to address. This podcast will consist of people sharing stories about difficult times in their lives. As a result we hope to gain a healthier perspective of sensitive issues and how to better serve others dealing with them.
Okay, so you’ve been hearing a new song for the past 5 episodes!
It’s called “Push Me Through” by our featured artist Taylor Reed!
Join us as Ashley sits down with Taylor to talk about her journey so far in music and in life. Taylor shares difficult things that she has had to work through and we are so grateful for her voice in speaking up about her experiences. She has been such a blessing to us and we believe that she will be a blessing to you as well.
Taylor, much love to you, Joe Karl (your dream boat husband), Dragon (retired racing Greyhound), and Robot (Papillion)!
It takes a special person and a lot of courage to leave a comfortable, American life for the sake of spreading the Gospel. We are in awe of these guests’ bravery and selflessness; and are so fortunate to call them friends.
This is “Part II” of a series called, “Missionary’s Heart,” where a married couple shares their two year experience of under-cover mission work in China. In the previous episode, we heard from “Lacey” (code name). Make sure you go back and listen. This episode is “Chris” (also code name) sharing his thoughts, beliefs, and experiences of living and working as a missionary in China.
You will love this conversation of Justin and “Chris” as they discuss the heart of a missionary.
Have you ever wondered what it is like to sell everything you have, uproot your entire life, and move across the world to a place where you barely speak the native language? Have you ever wondered what possesses a person to become a missionary? Well you’re in luck! If you answered “yes” to both of those questions, then you’ll want to listen to this episode and the next!
This is “Part I” of a series called, “Missionary’s Heart,” where we focus on the story of our friend, Lacey! (Or is that her real name?)
Ashley sits down with “Lacey” to talk about her experience as a missionary in China for two years. She opens up about her daily struggles and how she coped with several challenges. She shares with us the wisdom that she gained through it all.
Who is ready for two men to talk about infertility?
Justin speaks with Eddy Theodate about his current journey through infertility alongside his wife. Eddy opens up about his struggles and disappointments along with what has gotten him through this journey so far. He also provides something very rare in our society–great advice for men regarding infertility and marriage.
This is part 2 of a 2 part series.
Eddy’s wife, Ashley, shared her experience in part 1.
If you and your wife are currently dealing with infertility and you have not opened up to anyone yet please find someone you trust and tell them. If possible, find someone who has experienced this for themselves and glean from their wisdom.
Eddy’s advice to men:
First things first, tell your wife that you are “in it” for the long run. Tell her that you are not going anywhere regardless of what happens or doesn’t happen.
Be more open in communication with your wife. Let her know what you’re feeling.
Be open with your closest friends. Having the right men in your life who can support you as you support your wife is huge!
Allow your wife space to process at her own speed–don’t push her in your attempt to try and fix things. Emotions are not that simple.
Use Active Listening with your wife as she speaks to you. You can learn more about active listening here. Implementing active listening is very unifying.
Ashley Theodate graciously talks about her current journey through infertility alongside her husband. She provides great insight as to what she has experienced and how others can best love and serve women who are walking through this frustrating difficulty.
