We ARE going to talk about all of those things - but we are also going to talk about super fun and nerdy things too! Like historical costuming or sewing, minimalism, hair and makeup, gaming, DIY projects, motherhood, friendhood (is that even a word?!) and homeschooling. But mostly, Support this podcast:

Guys - I like tanning beds.  What can I say.  They help with depression, skin issues, anxiety, Vitamin D absorption - come on.  They're great.
Here is my latest episode featured on the UK Radio Show, District Dubz Presents, Listen Up.
My mother suffered a MASSIVE stroke the day before Thanksgiving, and has been in the hospital since then!  I had made many facebook live video updates, which has taken so much time away from actual podcasting!  SO I thought - I'm just going to record what I say on Facebook haha. 
I've been asked to join a radio hosting group in the UK and they've asked me for a 15 minute intro episode all about me!  This was wayyyyy harder than I thought it would be - because talking about yourself is awkward.

Firstly, forgive me for making this so dang serious.  I didn't mean to hahahaha.  I get that way sometimes - too deep.  Too passionate about God guys - I can't help it!I hope that you can find something in here worth listening to, friends.And Secondly, I'm really thankful you're here.

God is King!

God is King!


Y'all - this election has got me feeling some feelings.  And the craziest part is that with America split 50/50 - you won't even know which side I'm feelin' for ;-)  BUT LISTEN!  On the makes me sad that so many of my fellow Americans (and even people all over the world) are so divided over this presidential election - and I wanted to share some love and encouragement for all of you out there- a reminder that this is not our final and ultimate king. Our president is not the creator of the universe or the ruler of all men - the president is a short-termed sinful-human that will make decisions that will anger many and help few.  It's just kinda the way it always works. And guess what else?  This is nothing new to God  - He tells us that there is nothing new under the son. The best part of this episode is that my husband, naked 2 year old, and black cat, Persephone allllll make an appearance at some point or another. In the Kingdom of Heaven - we are all brothers and sisters - love you guys for coming back and listening!By the way!  If you are interested in donating to my podcast, PLEASE DO SO at PATREONPlease share!Thanks so much, friends!Music Credit: Happy Ukulele - Scott Holmes

Hello!  Welcome to episode 12!  I had the BEST time speaking with Emily Petersen, a local mom of 3 that has traveled the globe with her husband while homeschooling her babies.  She's been to Kansas, Singapore and Japan just to give you an idea of the different places she's seen - and Emily's family now looks at homeschooling as their goal - the thing that they work towards together.Though Emily was first thrust into homeschooling through necessity, like so many moms and dads out there, her and her husband soon realized that it was God calling them to a life of pajama breakfasts and homeschool hangouts. Please enjoy part 1 of Emily's story!I'd love your feeback!  Please send me an email at or find our public page on Facebook!  Is there anything I can do better?  What would you like to hear more of?  I'm all ears ;-)And remember!  There is a secret code in this episode for 20% off of your first purchase through Emily Petersen with Rodan and Fields, the leading dermatological skin care company!Music : Happy Ukulele by Scott HolmesRed Hair Blue Skies - MonplaisirInstagram contact for Emily for Rodan and Fields information at epetersen3_myrandf
Hey friends!  Did I tell you guys yet that I have a chronic illness?  And that there are a million different doctors doing a million different things to figure it out - but I was reminded during  a recent bout of family illness of a story from the Bible - about a lady that bled for TWELVE YEARS without a cure!  12 years!It reminded me that I'm not alone while going through this, and that others have already gone before me - and that Jesus spoke DIRECTLY to them.And listener friends - whichever faith you may have, I hope you are able to at least understand or enjoy my comparison!  Thanks for coming back!Luke 8:43-48English Standard Version43 And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and though she had spent all her living on physicians,[a] she could not be healed by anyone. 44 She came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, and immediately her discharge of blood ceased. 45 And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?” When all denied it, Peter[b] said, “Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you!” 46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I perceive that power has gone out from me.” 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling, and falling down before him declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed. 48 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.”
