On the Great Big YES! podcast, I like to get behind all of the “what do you do” questions and find out more about “who you are”.  I’m especially excited that in this conversation, you get to hear her heart. I love that she courageously shares her faith journey and talks about her childhood and how her faith has formed over the years.  We talk about family and church and our kids and red birds and so much more!

Amia is authentic and honest and inspiring. She speaks truth with humor and grace. Listen in and then head over to her website and give her a follow on Instagram! She will be your new best friend!

Podcast 23: Greg Hoyte-Immigration, Violence and Grace: An American Story

I am so honored to post this podcast! Listen in as Greg Hoyte shares his story with us.  (Greg is next to his sister in the above picture.)

You will be fascinated by Greg’s story. He shares his journey from his childhood in Guyana, South America to Brooklyn, New York. He moved to New York when he was 14 years old after his parents worked in the US for years to earn enough money for the kids to join them. Initially excited and feeling like a dream came true, he found himself caught up in the violence of the Brooklyn streets as a teenager, filled with fear and rage and thinking there was no way out. But God showed up and provided a way. Looking back Greg can see that God never left him. This is a story of family, immigration, violence, fear, grace and hope. This is an American story.

As he talked, I just sat listening, fascinated.  He “puts skin on” so many things we talk about today – immigration, violence, public education in American cities, gangs, family, friendship, God, faith, race, respect, discipline, the American dream, fear, hope.

Greg lives in Wisconsin now with his beautiful wife Amy and their three amazing kids.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.  -Psalm 23:4

 

 

 

Podcast #19 Grace Miller – Military spouses, spousehood.com

 

I’m excited for you to meet Grace Miller! She is a military spouse and the creator of a new website,  spousehood.com. I loved talking to her about being a military spouse and digging deeper into what that looks like and what kinds of support they need.  The website will offer tips and lifestyle ideas as well as faith based encouragement and inspiration.  For me, this was a whole new topic.  I don’t know many military spouses so it was a great opportunity to ask questions.  I’m in awe of this group of people.   They sacrifice so much.  I met Grace through a Just Moved group at church and I know what it means to move, it’s not easy!   Just realizing they have to do that time and time again makes me feel for them.  And I can’t imagine the fear that comes with being a military spouse.  We touch on all of this and Grace talks about the importance of faith and community for this population.  Listen in and hear her story!
