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 is one of my favorite podcaster-speaker-authors. She is anointed to encourage and equip others to live God's best for their lives... all while engaging and being present in the small important moments that matter in the everyday. 

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

Words to Remember...

  • “If you still want it, pray for it.”

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

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

This week is an encore from last year - the secret to finishing strong when you’re tired.This episode was so well received and so relevant I thought I would share it again. It’s a short, practical episode. Stick around until the end, because there’s a homework assignment to prepare you for next week’s year in review episode. 

Finishing Strong When You're Tired

The secret to finishing strong is not necessarily pushing harder, but embracing the rest your soul needs. In this episode we discuss:

  • Everything that grows and produces needs times to rest and recover. God has designed us to cycle between effort/work and recovery/rest.
  • When we allow time for rest and recovery, it allows things to grow stronger.
  • How do we allow time for rest when there's still work to be done?
  • How do we slow down the pace of our lives to enjoy the holiday season?

I’ve got some homework for you. Next week’s episode will be our final episode for 2019. We’re talking about our year in review and mentally preparing for a new year with a one word theme. 

Your homework is to grab the free Year in Review download at strongher.me/episode65 and start reflecting on your year by conducting your own year in review:

  1. List your 3 most memorable WINS of 2019.
  2. What did you try that you didn’t complete, but you plan to keep working towards in 2020?
  3. What are 1-2 lessons learned in 2019 that will change how you approach 2020?

Thank you for listening if this podcast has helped you mentally break free in some way in 2019, would you leave us a review on Apple podcasts or wherever you listen to this podcast.

Gloria Brintnall #workyourplan podcast

My guest for this episode is Pastor Gloria Brintnall. Gloria has served as an itinerant minister for several years, taking her passionate preaching and teaching of the Word of God throughout America. She's assisted in the planting and establishment of four satellite churches. She is the author of 3 books. Stuff Happens, HOPE Anyway is her most recent book and the one we'll be discussing in this interview.

I want to set the back story of why this interview was important to me. Imagine there is a couple in your church. The couple leads worship at your church. You know there kids because you serve them in the youth dept. They move away because of a call to ministry. They travel the world ministering through song. Years later, they settle into lead a church. Their kids are either young adults at this point or approaching it. They are not a constant in your life, but they are a family that you once knew. Then, one day you learn that the husband has been arrested and sentenced to prison time. This family’s world is flipped upside down. Because you are not close friends, you witness how the mom and her children move forward in their lives from a distance through Facebook. After a decade has passed the wife writes a book sharing how God kept her and her children and restored her through the storm.

Now that you have that insight, one more thing before I share the interview. I’m called to help women heal from the pain of a devastating defining moment and get on with living the good life God has planned for them. What struck me most about Pastor Gloria’s story is how her message of hope shines through in the midst of a devastating, defining moment in her life. It has not marked her with bitterness or even fear about the future. I find that remarkable and I believe you will too.

Nov 11, 2019

I already had an episode planned where I talked to my cousin, an OBGYN about women’s health. I don’t normally talk about pop culture on my podcast but this week I’m making an exception. Why? Because of 2 news stories this month: 

  1. Rapper TI takes his daughter to the gynecologist once a year to make sure she’s still a virgin and now 
  2. Because of Kanye’s conversion, people are interjecting their beliefs about how his wife should start dressing. 

I tend to keep my opinions about controversial things limited to what I share with people who personally know me because for the most part, opinions are opinions and everyone has one. In this case, I think both situations are about control. Control in any relationship, regardless of the circumstance can lead us to dangerous places. Respect isn’t found in control. Control comes from a place of fear. 

In the second half of the show I share a conversation that I had with my cousin, Founder and President of the National Birth Equity Collaborative, Dr. Joia Creer Perry. She's a thought leader around racism as a root cause of health inequities, Speaker, Trainer, Advocate, Policy Expert, and fighter for justice. She's the recipient of the Congressional Black Caucus Healthcare Hero’s award and the Maternal Health Task Force at Harvard University Global Visionary Award for Commitment to Advancing Women’s Health.

She is married to Dr. Andre Perry and has three children: Jade, Carlos, and Robeson

Her love is her family; health equity is her passion; maternal and child health are her callings.

She is a wealth information around the history of maternal health in the US and advocacy of black infant and maternal health. We discuss how racism has permeated the quality of care black women receive in this country and the importance of all women, but especially black women, being our own mental and physical health advocates.

October is Breast Cancer, Domestic Violence and Child & Infant Loss Awareness Month. I’ve been personally affected by all of these. I've experienced infant loss through a miscarriage. I've had multiple close family members die of cancer and women I know and love have been subjected to verbal, physical and emotional abuse. So, for October we are addressing themes related to Women's Mental & Physical Health. I want to equip and empower you with mentorship in these crucial areas of your life.

In episode 60 I address our spiritual health. In that episode I share the healing process I went through as a result of a defining moment in my life.

Alisa Keeton, the founder and CEO of Revelation Wellness and the author of The Wellness Revelation is our guest mentor for episode 61 of the podcast. Alisa is a 25+ year fitness professional, she believes that the Gospel is a wholistic message of heart, mind, soul, and strength and each body holds a story that must be told. It is then that healing, health, and wholeness can truly begin.

In this episode we discuss grief and the mind-body connection, our thirst for significance, what to do when we feel stuck and how breathing and meditating help us relieve stress in our daily lives.

I have a fun new project I’m hosting starting the first week of November I hope you will join. The Focus.me Project will help go-getter women jumpstart the process of breaking habits that are keeping us busy, stressed out and not effectively reaching our goals. It’s a 5 day challenge with bite-size tasks to complete.

"Not everybody needs fitness but everybody needs therapy. To be alive is to need therapy." - Alisa Keaton

"I can not be connected to what I'm not aware of. " - Alisa Keaton

"Healing requires connection...and that therapy of fitness and movement gets us to connect back to our physical self, to pull up pain that words can not access. There's pain in our body that no amount of words can access." - Alisa Keaton

Oct 9, 2019

October is Breast Cancer, Domestic Violence and Child & Infant Loss Awareness Month. I’ve been personally affected by all of these. I've experienced infant loss through a miscarriage. I've had multiple close family members die of cancer and women I know and love have been subjected to verbal, physical and emotional abuse. So, for October we are addressing themes related to Women's Mental & Physical Health. I want to equip and empower you with mentorship in these crucial areas of your life.

Today we’re kicking this month off with a solo episode. I want to address our mental well being in health. 

episode 60 healing reconciliation and finishing strong

At this point of the year our hearts and minds can already be in the new year. As we head into the 4th quarter of the year, I want us to ask ourselves how do we finish the year strong mentally, emotionally, physically? 

In order to do that we need to decide where we are today. I want to speak directly to those who have taken some leap of faith/a cliff jump/a risk this year or in years past and landed flat on your face.

Our guest for episode 59 of the podcast is Sarah Harmeyer. Sarah is the Chief people gatherer at Neighbor's Table where her dad has the role of creating hand crafted tables and Sarah shows us how to love people around the table. As you will hear, she is a woman on a "love mission". 

Sarah Harmeyer Neighbor's Table

In this episode you will hear how Sarah's vision for Neighbor’s Table started to unfold as you asked God about her purpose. We talk about calling and community and practical ideas for us to be intentional about inviting people to a seat at the table. 

Inviting people into our homes feels like a lost art in our generation. People like Sarah and last week's guest, Alexa are helping us find our way and open our homes once again.

Quotes:

"We wanted to be missional about the way we love people." - Sarah Harmayer

"The people around us are not projects...The more we learn about people and get to know them better, we can love them better." - Sarah Harmeyer

"I know that at the heart of us, we all want connection." - Sarah Harmeyer
