Motherhood is hard. And amazing. And can make you burst with joy and frustration at the same time some days. Join me each week as I dig deep with various guests to ask how they moved from just struggling to struggling WELL.

"Freakishly transparent" is one way people have described my guest this week.  She spent so long hiding the truth about her past that when she finally started being honest, she just couldn't stop!  This episode is full of SO many big ideas and truths.  Her words are sure to challenge you to step out of darkness and into the light. 

What we chat about:

  • What to do when motherhood doesn't feel natural
  • How running from your past only makes it devour you instead
  • How to mend betrayal and shame in a relationship
  • How God wants your healing more than you do

Laurie is a wife and mom who grew up in a strong Christian home.  She comes from a large and impressive family and went on to do impressive things for God because she was trying really hard to sort out how to be "Christian enough" to stop being attracted to other women.  This conversation is something the church needs to hear.  I know I needed to hear it.  She tells her story with gut wrenching honesty but also so much grace.  I think you'll be surprised to discover how similar your story is to hers!
