Welcome back to the Book Club Series! This is the last episode of 2019 so let’s dive into two books that have impacted me this year. I’ve picked one fiction book and one financial/mindset book. BOTH impacted me greatly and should be added to your personal library. Listen in to find out the nuggets of wisdom that I gained from each one, along with some additional thoughts and what to expect from the podcast in 2020.
Enjoy, and thanks for listening this year!

She kept holding my hand and placed her other hand on top of mine. “You’re doing important work. Keep doing it. Keep talking about your work. Don’t stop and don’t let anyone get in your way.” Then she squeezed my hands and said, “Do not be moved, Brene.” ~Braving The Wilderness, Brene Brown
That’s good stuff right there. Today marks the start of a brand new series that I plan to highlight throughout the year. It’s simply called, The Book Club Series.
I love reading. You can find me diving into books ranging from spiritual growth, personal growth, business growth, and even YA fiction. I’m a sucker for that last one. But today I won’t talk your ear off about my favorite Shadowhunter or why I love the Hunger Games so much. Nope. Instead, I want to talk to you about a book that I devoured in less than two weeks. It spoke to me so deeply that it was like coming up for air after nearly drowning in the depths of my own...
What do you do when your hope is deferred and you start to feel like no one notices? I’ve been in a vortex of avoidance lately because of hope deferred, and what it really came down to was this: my attitude sucked. Ever been there yourself? In today’s episode, I want to share with you what to do when you notice your own attitude needs a pick-me-up. I’m also sharing 3 Mantra’s to help you turn it around so you don’t get stuck in bitterness, comparison, or jealousy. Ready? Let’s go!
“I have no spoons left to deal with this.” That’s a phrase my bestie used on a weekend girls trip to Minneapolis a few months ago. “No spoons? What does that mean?” I pondered out loud. Raychel then proceeded to explain to me The Spoon Theory. Ever since then, “no spoons” has been a phrase I’ve adopted. It’s a phrase that helps me give myself grace. More than that, it’s a completely practical way for me to explain chronic illness to the world around me.
According to Wikipedia, “The spoon theory or spoon metaphor is a disability metaphor, a neologism used to explain the reduced amount of mental and physical energy available for activities of living and productive tasks that may result from disability or chronic illness.” It was developed by Christine Miserandino and you can look her up at www.butyoudontlooksick.com.
In today’s episode of the She Who Overcomes Podcast, my bestie – Raychel Perman...
What makes a hero? My parents have both told me at different points of time that I am their hero. I really don’t feel like a hero so this got me thinking about what it means to BE one. The dictionary describes a hero as someone who “is noted for courageous acts or nobility of character.” Allow me to take a few moments to share with you some of my heroes in the world of cystic fibrosis, along with what I’ve learned on my own journey of living courageously.
Earlier this month I had the privilege of speaking at an event for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and today’s episode is your chance to be inspired by that talk. I called it: The Making Of A Hero.

A voice of encouragement is so refreshing in this day and age. My guest today, Kelly Sisson, is one of those voices. Her podcast, Kelly And The Encouragers, is becoming one of my favorites – seriously look it up on Apple Podcast!
In this episode we chat about the mental health stigma, self-love, and the difference between counseling and coaching. One of my favorite quotes from her during our conversation was this: “We hear a lot about the younger generations – like they are so into their phones, they are on social media all the time – but you know what they are getting right? Talking about their mental health. They are absolutely getting this right!”
Grab your coffee and spend some time with me as I interview my new friend, Kelly Sisson! (Then be sure to tune in to her podcast on 11/12/19 for an episode with me as her guest!)

Also, before you go, I have a question for you:
What was your vision for 2019?
If you took the time to write it down, you most likely experienced the reality of that vision. Writing down your vision gives you a road map for your life. Ancient wisdom says that a man without a vision will perish.
So let me ask you a few...
What does it mean to do a little bit, every day? It takes consistency. Let’s get real for a moment…Where do you want to be a year from now?
If we don’t take consistent action every day, part of our belief will die. Our belief in who we were meant to be, belief that things can be different and better, belief in why we are here…our belief in making sure that others will be able to overcome hard things, sickness, abuse, and trauma, too because we had the courage to consistently rise up every day.
Don’t let your belief die. Rise up and be consistent day in and day out. Because a year from now is coming. Grab your coffee and be encouraged by today’s episode. Ready? Listen on...
