This is such an important conversation.  I’m so grateful to Brandy for her willingness to share her story and to help others in their healing. Brandy is a marriage and family therapist.  She is also a two time survivor of suicide loss.  She is the author of “The Gift of Second: Healing from the Impact of Suicide”.

“After a suicide, loved ones painfully struggle to make sense of the unexplainable tragedy. The Gift of Second comes alongside loss survivors and helps navigate the common pitfalls for those left behind. This book offers hope and encouragement to guide survivors through this desperate time.”

Brandy is also the founder of the website, thegiftofsecond.com – a community for survivors of suicide loss. Whether you have lost a loved one to suicide or you know someone who has, you will be blessed by Brandy and her story.  Please share with others who may benefit from this conversation, the website and/or her book.  Brandy wants to help others experience healing in spite of the sorrow.

Podcast 17 – Josh Phillips, Anxiety and Marriage

 

You guys!! I’m so grateful to Josh Phillips for sharing his story! Josh is married to Rachel Phillips who was on the last Great Big Yes podcast (#16) sharing her experience with anxiety. Josh tells us what it’s like to be married to a woman who suffers from anxiety, how it affects the relationship and how God has helped him learn and grow through their 16 years of marriage. Listen in! You don’t want to miss his side of the story!

Can we all just take a moment and thank the men in our lives who have loved us well?

He talks about what it’s like to not understand what your wife needs, to mess up and need to grow and learn. He is vulnerable and transparent about his experience.  Share with the men in your life who may need this.  If they love someone with anxiety, they are not alone and there is hope.

Josh is also an American Ninja Warrior! Woop!   I shared a video on the last post and here are a couple more just for fun!
