After 20 years of friendship and 13 years of marriage, LaSandra Hutchinson experienced the sudden loss of her husband in October 2017.  At the time, her children were 11, 10, 8, and 6 years old. Eager to learn all she could about grief and to rebuild a powerful life for her and her children, LaSandra began researching grief and sharing her new understanding, her faith, and her grief journey on YouTube, through public speaking, and through writing. She wanted to give a transparent look into grief in a way that resonated with others and that brought hope. Through these steps, Grace & Grief was born. Grace and Grief is an initiative that provides support, community, and inspiration to help others grow through grief and live boldly after loss.

What does it mean for God to be good?

This common question is at the heart of what many of us will wrestle with when we experience some form of loss in our lifetime.

Our guest, LaSandra Hutchinson is going to help us uncover how grief and loss has impacted our relationship with God. LaSandra is a speaker, writer, content creator and advocate for the rights and well-being of women and girls. She began her work in the non-profit sector as a teenager, spearheading a youth-led initiative in which she designed and implemented violence prevention programming to empower young women in Chicago. She has continued that work as a domestic violence advocate and currently builds awareness of the issue by providing domestic violence training and strengthening community partnerships through her with South Suburban Family Shelter, an organization that provides comprehensive domestic violence services in Illinois. 

After 20 years of friendship and 13 years of marriage, LaSandra experienced the sudden loss of her husband in October 2017.  At the time, her children were 11, 10, 8, and 6 years old. Eager to learn all she could about grief and to rebuild a powerful life for her and her children, LaSandra began researching grief and sharing her new understanding, her faith, and her grief journey on YouTube, through public speaking, and through writing. She wanted to give a transparent look into grief in a way that resonated with others and that brought hope. Through these steps, Grace & Grief was born. Grace and Grief is an initiative that provides support, community, and inspiration to help others grow through grief and live boldly after loss.

  • What to expect in the grief process

Oct 27, 2020

In today’s episode we’re discussing two topics we’re told never to talk about -- religion & politics. We're, specifically, talking about the intersection of faith and politics and how do we unify when the stakes feel so high in this year's election.

Our guest for episode 80 of the podcast is Sarah Bauer Anderson. Sarah has spent her entire life learning to live in the tension both politics and religion create, striving to best navigate the complicated issues and emotional conversations around these weightier topics. Raised in a family of politicos, including a former Republican presidential candidate father (Gary Bauer), Sarah shares her story and what she’s learned in her latest book, The Space Between Us: How Jesus Teaches Us to Live Together When Politics and Religion Pull Us Apart. 

She has been involved in ministry since 2003 and uses her skills as an avid communicator, writer and author, to combine her passions in order to instill positive faith in teens, parents and ministry influencers. Sarah is the lead content creator and writer for XP3 High School curriculum from Orange, a nonprofit organization with a mission to instill positive faith and influence parents and ministries to influence the next generation.

Sarah Anderson

In this episode we discuss…

  • Principles Sarah's political and religious family have learned about navigating political discussions that might help you restore relationships with your friends and family
  • Why beliefs like 'we have to agree with every issue a candidate stands for to publicly support them' are driving us apart
  • How our limited view of Jesus is hindering contributes to our lack of civil discourse around religion and politics
  • The importance of posture over position
  • Why nuance gets lost in our political discussions online
  • How we honor our Christian faith in voting without standing in condemnation of others for their differing views

Before you go...

Join us the day after the election on Wed, 11/4 at 6pm MST/7pm CST for a candid conversation among a group of multi-generational, multi-ethnic women exploring how we find unity following the 2020 election season.

Sep 17, 2020

For the month of September where we will be talking about demystifying purpose. My conversation with Nicole Salmon centers around defining purpose and gaining clarity about your purpose.

Nicole Salmon Purpose Coach

When we’re unclear on our calling, we feel stuck and left behind. In today’s conversation, my guest Nicole Salmon helps us demystify “purpose” by revealing the one mindset shift we must make to be fruitful in every season of life. Tune in throughout September as we continue this monthly series on clarifying our purpose.

Purpose coach Nicole Salmon has worked with some pretty inspiring and powerful women over the years. You know the type. Fierce, has it all together and going places? Well at least to the public she is. But in her private life she is also unraveling and not clear about her next move. Why do they end up at her door? Because birds of a feather flock together. If the quest for finding your purpose has left you feeling stuck or left behind, you’re in the right place. In today’s episode, Nicole invites us to reject the idea that purpose is a destination, so that we can begin living from purpose, adapting it as our lifestyle.

In this episode we discuss…

  • The dark seasons that leave you feeling like purpose is over & how God uses them to propel you into His purposes for your life.
  • The grace of God that overrides shame’s intent to silence and muzzle your calling. 
  • Walking in your calling as a believer by putting “purpose” into the proper perspective.
  • Following Purpose’s breadcrumbs in your life to rediscover and exercise your God-given gifts right where you are. 

***

Words to Remember… 

  • “Your mistakes do not void your purpose.”  – Nicole Salmon
  • “The question is not: What do I want to be? But: What do I want to do? I already am somebody.” – Nicole Salmon
  • “If the only time you are great is when your title is great, that’s not greatness. That’s a show.” – Nicole Salmon
  • “Time doesn’t clarify your purpose. Movement made toward your call in faith does. You will squint at purpose from afar until Jesus returns.” – Nicole Salmon

For the month of August our conversations on the podcast will help parents transition their families into a new and very different school year. 

Christine Duvivier

My guest for today's episode is Christine Duvivier. Christine Duvivier is an international speaker, author and positive change mentor. She speaks, teaches and coaches for organizations, leaders, students and communities that are ready to think beyond traditional myths that hold us back and want to use positive practices to tap into the powerful energy available to them so that they live into more of their true spirits and who they ultimately want to be. She holds an MBA and a Masters degree in Positive Psychology.

Christine and I discuss:

  • The myth of the bad student, the myth of the good student and the myth of the best system and how it's impacting our kids
  • Why our current system of schooling can lead to depression for some students and what we can do about it
  • 7 hidden gifts and how we uncover them
  • Helping our kids become more confident and resilient in school

You can watch the video of our conversation at Facebook.com/StrongHerMe

Quotes from the episode:

"The system is structured in a way and teaches thought patterns that cause depression and anxiety." - Christine Duvivier

"We don't really have any control over what our kids think...what's interesting is how much impact we have." - Christine Duvivier

"I think it's so empowering when you take control as a parent of yourself and decide I'm going to define how I want to think about this (my child and their strengths) and I don't want other people defining it for me. " - Christine Duvivier

Chrystal Evans Hurst

Chrystal Hurst is here to talk about how a 28 day commitment can help us make prayer a habit in our daily lives.

We end the episode with her answering several listener questions about prayer.

This episode is for you if you’ve ever wondered…

  • the role and purpose of prayer as we take action on the vision in our heart
  • how to cultivate your relationship with God through prayer
  • how to wrestle with disappointment through prayer
  • how to make prayer ongoing conversation between you and God

Eshe Pickett

We're going to learn why local elections matter and how we become informed voters from my friend, Eshe Pickett, a community activist & an engineer. We will address advocacy, elections and our laws.

In this episode we discuss...

  • Why local elections matter and how we become informed voters

  • Why we need to start engaging our children early
  • Other ways besides voting to be involved in the political process
  • How do the different branches of government affect economic and racial inequality?
  • Resources to help us navigate the system

Quotes

"Politicians pay attention to people who can vote them out of office." - Eshe Pickett

"There's always got to be some piece of you that's connected to the greater good and when you have no connection and all you're seeing is the negative that's when you have hopelessness. I maintain hope because I'm involved." - Eshe Pickett

For the month of June, in response to our collective grief and outrage over racist acts continuing in our country, on my platforms I'm centering our conversations around reclaiming our voice.

Sharli Berry of Destiny's Door Counseling Center

This week’s #WorkYourPlan conversation with Sharli Berry, a licensed therapist and the owner of Destiny's Door Counseling, about reclaiming your voice after trauma is critical to this conversation.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's quote "protest is the language of the unheard" is quoted frequently right now. We're going to dig into what that means from a mental health perspective. Specifically, we will be talking about how we reclaim our voice after different forms of trauma - childhood abuse and neglect, domestic violence, as well as, the trauma of systemic racism.

In this episode we discuss...

  • What is trauma?
  • What role does our faith play to help us deal with trauma? What role does therapy play?
  • How traumas get triggered
  • How systemic racism triggers us
  • How we reclaim our voice after trauma

Courage always comes with a cost.

For the month of June we’re exploring what courage costs all of us and how courage helps us reclaim our voice for our God-given assignment.

One of the things I pray is reclaimed from our anger and outrage around history continuing to repeat itself is our heart for advocacy.

Khalilah Elliott reclaim voice advocacy

I was joined by my sister, Khalilah Elliott, a multicultural marketing and communications expert, to talk about how we reclaim our voice for advocacy. 

Advocacy comes in many forms and that's what Khalilah and I will be talking about.

In this episode we discuss...
▪️Why advocacy matters
▪️Why our silence and inaction is detrimental to us all
▪️How to think critically about issues of social justice
▪️How to address our own anger and resentment in a way that’s not counterproductive
▪️Methods for how we “stop” the madness

No more being silent about the things that matter most to us because we fear what others think.

"If people are ready to leave you, because you find your voice and you're ready to speak up for yourself, let them go!" - Khalilah Elliott

"If you're an advocate, your role, even when it is uncomfortable is to acknowledge when something is problematic for the people you claim you advocate for. It doesn't stop when it stops being a topic of discussion." - Khalilah Elliott
