Mom Struggling Well

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.

Alisa Keeton has been involved in the fitness world her whole life.  Once God got a hold of her heart she answered the call to create a space and train others to connect faith and fitness- in a way that was not cheesy and gross.  This conversation is about way more than fitness though, so stick around even if you don't consider yourself an athlete.

What we chat about: 

  • How Alisa, once repulsed by the idea of "Christian Aerobics," ended up with a fitness ministry
  • What it is like to walk with God when your husband does not
  • How to spot misplaced worship

Sallie Dean is a wife, mom of twins, an artist and, most importantly, my friend.  ;) Sallie has a steadiness about her that I'm drawn to and I was eager to ask her how she walked (and is currently still walking through) a rough season.  The topic is infertility but what she has learned can be broadly applied to anything we are going through.  There were so many important truths shared.  You're going to want to have a pen and paper!

What we chat about:

  • Her process of letting God lead instead of chasing what she wanted.
  • Hanging onto the truth that SHE is not broken even though she is dealing with infertility
  • A marriage tool for decision-making that is pure gold
