How do you know if you’re struggling well or just plain struggling?

Just Em is back again with part four of a four-part series on what it means to Struggle WELL. This week we deep dive on the second L of WELL. L is for LEAN IN.

TOPICS:

  • what happens when you stop cursing your situation and get curious about it instead

  • two things to ask yourself - What if I did something different here? What is God trying to teach me in this situation?

  • focusing on fixing ourselves rather than trying to change others

  • seeing the fork in the road as an opportunity

  • modeling the person we want our children to be

  • the struggle to stop “kicking the goads”

There is so much to know about foster care. Hallie has a ton of knowledge and such a beautiful perspective on parenting. You guys are going to LOVE her.

Hallie Graves is a 30-something from the great Austin, Texas. Not a fan of the linear life, Hallie’s a speaker and writer, a lawyer with a boutique law firm, a foster care activist, and a #singlefostermom with infant and toddlers, and is overly interested in just about everything. Hallie is passionate about encouraging people to live fully in light of the grace and freedom of Jesus and to use every ounce of all they’ve been given in this life. She loves the Austin library, Broadway shows, queso, yoga, words, traveling, and her people. Hallie’s involved in the Austin Stone Community Church, Foster Village, and The Archibald Project, and has degrees in voice, physics, and law.

WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT:

  • how Hallie became involved in the foster care system

  • a real look at what it’s like for a child to be removed from their family and placed into the foster care system

  • things everyone should know about foster care

  • how Hallie remains positive in the midst of heartbreaking work

  • choosing our words carefully when we speak about our children when we’re stressed

  • handling the trauma of attaching to foster children that are later removed

  • the importance of mental health for foster parents

  • how we can better support foster parents
