Suzy, a successful hairstylist in Orange County, had basically resigned herself to the fact that she wouldn’t ever find love, and that because she had such a fulfilling career & life otherwise, that was just fine. Patrick was in BioTech living in San Diego, when he found himself in a marriage with someone who was unfaithful (for the fourth time). Cut to a joint Bachelor/Bachelorette in the Fall of 2017 and a newly single Patrick and Suzy meet. Instant chemistry leads to a 12-hour hang-sesh and then marriage…with some hiccups along the way.   Patrick & Suzy Kil get real with us on this episode. We chat about the difficulties of navigating the dating scene, their early relationship, sex before marriage as Christians, cultural differences and even how Patrick decides to take Suzy’s last name once they got married. (That’s a killer story, by the way.)   Take a listen and when you’re done, head on over to their IG accounts to see more about this amazing couple.   @Bornbeautifulglam, @ItsMrsKil, @Mrkil19 & @thekilsexploreitall
Imagine being married and having 3 beautiful children. Then one day you find yourself Googling, “How do you know if you should get divorced?”    My guest (and friend) Kaylie Pierre, a mother of three kids under the age of five, found herself in that exact position. After falling madly in love quickly and having all the conversations about children and divorce and how it was never going to be an option for them, life happened. Kaylie gets candid about the changes that come with being married and a new mom; being ALL THE THINGS to ALL THE PEOPLE. How her relationship shifted and about that particularly bad fight that left her feeling that a choice needed to be made for not only herself, but her children.    She shares her story of past traumas and how she gained confidence through running her business.  Finding her voice again through her blog (The Diary of a Single Mom) and as a soon to be published author in a collaborative book (Diamond Mind, available on Amazon in June 2020).   To hear more from Kaylie check her out on Instagram @kaylie_and_hersquad or her blog

What is white privilege? What's our duty to understand it and how does it play into racism?  Megan Nevels, an assistant Education Director at a leading anti-hate organization, joins me to discuss tangible ways to better "see" privilege in action and make steps in our lives to become more understanding and inclusive in our world.  Megan shares her experience of being a white woman, growing up in Inglewood a predominantly black neighborhood in LA shaped her and how she truly came into awareness of her own privilege later in life while in grad school.

Nearly half of Americans have a family member or close friend who’s been addicted to drugs or alcohol, yet we're never taught how we're supposed to deal with it. And especially in church culture and communities, addiction is plagued with shame, guilt, and secrecy.  In this episode, I share how my journey to dealing with a brother who is an addict and how I learned to view addiction as a disease---using cancer as a metaphor.  I dive into mental health and addicts longing for community and connection, and how to best approach loved ones going through it.  It's a topic close to my heart and I'm excited to share my experience in hopes it'll help you deal with the loved ones struggling with addiction too. 
Bravely sharing her first-hand account of rape, abortion and being an egg donor. Jordy's story is incredible and gives a different perspective on being a pro-choice Christian women. While the topic is heavy, we find ways to laugh. We dive into Catholic guilt, how politics focus on the wrong thing with abortion, and empathize with how non-believers might feel about faith.
Feminism and Christianity aren't usually used synonymously. What's this intersection of faith and values like for a millennial woman? We chat about why there aren't more female pastors, how we want men who have masculine energies but are willing to be equally matched, and how Jesus sexuality might have not been what most think....

I think we’re not having the right conversations about faith.  I’m diving into why I decided to start this podcast and how I want to create a space for millennial women to discuss faith, politics, dating, sex, wellness, quantum physics, gender identity, heaven, name it without judgement. We're all trying to figure it out, why not do it together? No scripture verses. No condemning. No regurgitation of doctrine. No bullshit. Just straight girl talk && intelligent conversations. This is for the "spiritual" girl. This is for the girl who has a close relationship with God but hasn't found a church or religion to call home. This is for the agnostic or atheist girl looking to connect with like-minded women && learn intellectually why people believe in this "God" thing. At the end of the day, I want to see badass women like you empowered by what God's created you to be. I want you to be your BEST self so you can wholeheartedly show up and serve the world.
