Christine is a wife and mom, a graphic designer and a small business owner.  She's into crossfit and eating clean but seems to have a handle on balancing the fact that real life also creeps up despite our best efforts.  She's struggled through anxiety and depression and has made a lot of progress in the areas of marriage and cleaning out her house.  I really enjoyed this chat with Christine and I know you will too!

This girl is a joy to me and a serious source of encouragement.  She is always cheering me on but isn't afraid to get onto me when I'm heading down the wrong path.  She's been through a serious valley and you're going to benefit greatly from the wisdom she brings to this chat.  Get your paper and pen ready.

What we chat about:

  • What Retha hopes her kids learn by watching her
  • Her advice to wives after becoming a widow
  • Being a light vs. being the head of the household
