Ep. 85 - Life Lately and a Check-In with New Mom Kristen
Hey everybody! We are so glad to have you back here this week! We started off our show letting you know that April is National Donate Life Awareness Month! If you haven’t listened to our episode with Paige, please go take a listen! She shares “Corrie’s story,” a beautiful story of organ donation and how it saved the life of her baby girl.
In this week’s episode, we are having another “Life Lately” update! We are talking all about what we are watching, listening to, reading, eating, cooking, and doing in this season… all the fun things!! We’ve gathered all the links to all the things we discussed, so here we go!
Things we are listening to: Disney+, Dave Barnes’ Who Knew it Would Be So Hard to Be Myself, Imagine Dragons, Wow in the World podcasts, Sara Bareilles, and Johnnyswim (GETTTT the new album - JUST came out!).
Things we are reading: Margin by Dr. Richard Swenson (keep reading with us - you have a few more weeks!), Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis, Mo’ Meta Blues by Quest Love and Creative Quest, The Vanderbeekers and the Hidden Garden by Karina Yan Glaser.

She mentioned and gave a shoutout to Daystar Counseling Ministries - y’all know we are HUGE fans of this amazing counseling ministry.
We got to finish up this super fun conversation by talking with “New Mom Kristen” and hear how they and baby Stone are all doing!
From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:
Kristen is totally into Zoloft! We so are thankful for her willingness to say that and talk about the emotional and mental struggle that is very real after pregnancy.
Jennifer is totally into Dr. Teal’s Soaking Solution - so many “flavors”!
Courtney is totally into Covergirl Exhibitionist Mascara.
We are so thrilled to have you here with us again for another week! We love hearing from you each week and connecting with so many of our listeners! We will be back at ya next week with a super special Mother’s Day episode - you don’t wanna miss this one! (Yes - Mother’s Day is almost here!) And keep on reading Margin by Dr. Richard Swenson! Have a great week, mamas!
