Toni Collier joins me for Episode 72. Not only is she a wife and mother, she is also a dynamic, ambitious, accomplished young woman who went from the corporate world to the ministry world. And we have a conversation about racial reconciliation. We talk about why diversity is important, what is the key to moving forward in this arena and what women uniquely bring to the table.

I am thankful that I have friends who welcome the awkwardness into the room so that we can have an honest conversation about something that feels a little touchy.

One takeaway that I had from our conversation was what she said about multiculturalism. "Multiculturalism is the way forward. In order for us to live out our greatest capacity and get to experience everything the world has to offer we have to get outside of our four walls." We have to work hard to get outside of our own bubble and experience the world. And I loved that her suggestions were easy and doable. All of us can take a step in that direction and you step may look different from my step. Maybe for you its reading a book on black history. Maybe for you its googling something about racial reconciliation. Maybe for you its inviting someone over for coffee or a kids playdate who is different from you. We can all start somewhere.

Sherri Dickens joins me for Episode 71. She is the blogger behind Rage Against the Mom Jean. She was a tomboy as a child who grew up to love fashion. I loved hearing about how she got to be where she is today. And I discovered that she grew up in the foster care system and because of that a deep need to care and help others was birthed in her.

We also talk about how to dress for every stage of life, how to model love for yourself in front of your kids and some very practical tips when it comes to fashion.

I always enjoy these chats that land on some practical advice about fashion. If you follow me in Instagram, then you know that I am all about trying to inspire and encourage you to love the creative side of getting dressed. In fact, if you want to follow along, I would love for you to post a picture of what you're wearing and use #SurvivingStyle Let's be a tribe of women who encourage each other in an area where most of us feel insecure.

Brittany Price joins me for Episode 70 This is one gorgeous girl both inside and out. Jesus just exudes out of her. We talk about surviving the death of her husband--how she found herself as a widow at age 25 with 3 boys under the age of 3. We talk about surrender and how to trust as you walk through the darkness.

I was so inspired and encouraged by her. God doesn't always call us to walk through the rose garden. Sometimes He leads us through the darkness. There are some things that we can't choose, but we can choose our response. We can choose how we see the circumstances around us. I will tell you that, I was challenged by that with some difficult circumstances surrounding me. And I want to kick and scream. And its okay to kick and scream, but when God tugs at your heart & asks you to obey even though its not comfortable or easy, the best response is surrender.

She is a firm believer that no matter who you are, you don’t have to be afraid or intimidated to teach your kids Scripture. I invited her to be on the show to talk about how to anchor your kids heart to Jesus this Easter.

Leslie Klipsch joins me for Episode 68. She is a mom on a mission to help awaken the mama bear inside each one of us. It doesn't take long to realize that Leslie wants to make an impact not only in her community but also in the world around her.

Kay Warren joins me for Episode 67. If you don't know her already, she is the co-founder of Saddleback Church, a pastor's wife and an advocate for people living with mental illness, HIV&AIDS and for orphaned and vulnerable children. You quickly can tell that she wants to be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

I wanted to chat with her about surviving the death of her son and also surviving as a pastor's wife. We talk about signs of mental illness in your kids, what its like being a parent of a child who suffers, practical ways the church can do to change the conversation about mental illness and suicide and her advice that every pastor's wife needs to know.

This was one of the easiest conversations to have and listen to even though the topic is not an easy topic. And I think that says something about Kay's nature. I am truly thankful for the role that she and her husband played in my life and ministry. And it was an honor to have her on the show.

Ted Lowe joins me for Episode 66. Surviving Sarah male guest #2. I’ve known Ted and his wife Nancie for so many years so when I decided it was time to do another episode about marriage, I knew that he would be perfect for the show. We talk about some common myths of what make a marriage work and then some core habits that we can develop to get marriages into a healthy rhythm. 

I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Ted. He is so easy to talk to and I hope you felt like what we talked about was doable. I think the biggest takeaway for me was the first core habit of having serious fun. I think its easy to let fun go to the bottom of the todem pole. Think about what you enjoy doing with your spouse? Think back to when you were first together. What did you enjoy doing together? What did you enjoy about each other? Sometimes, you just have to work a little harder to create those fun moments. I loved the statement that he suggested we tell our spouse: The thing about you that makes me say “wow” is ____.

Jordan Baker Watts joins me for Episode 65. She is a jack of all trades when it comes to ministry. She’s a musician, vocalist, worship leader, writer, author, podcast, speaker but at the center of it all, she has a heart about encouraging the hearts of moms. We talk highly important things like locking our kids outside, how raising kids has turned us into middle schoolers, and how bodysuits do not need to come back into fashion.

And as we solved so many of life’s problems, we also talked about some amazing things like how to find the hilarity in motherhood, what to do if you struggle with depression, and how to live the abundant life that God has placed before you.

Kayla Craig joins me for Episode 64. She is a journalist turned stay at home mom, is married to a pastor and together they have four kids under the age of 6. So she's not busy at all. We talk about the book she wrote, Just Really Joseph, her new podcast called UpsideDown, and a lot of motherhood like why they chose to adopt, parenting special needs kids and the importance of having a form of acceptance knowing that whatever God calls you to that you are enough. 

Feb 21, 2017

Jacey Verdicchio joins me for episode 63. You may know her well from the popular podcast called Around The Table. Jacey and I became Voxer friends last year and I thought it would be fun to talk about finding your fit or your place in work. Do you feel lost in what you’re doing? Maybe you are a recent college grad but don’t know what to do next? O maybe you’re a mom who is drowning in a sea of diapers and wonder if there is more to life? Or maybe you find yourself at a mid-life stage of life and feel like its time for a change? If that is you, then this episode was designed with you in mind. 

We talk about thinking outside of the box of what work might look like for you, what to do when you feel unsure of what to do next and advice that we would give to our twenty year old selves. 

I hope you enjoyed my chat with Jacey. She is such a smart, hard-working woman. I really enjoyed the part of our conversation centered around the idea that God is working something in you even if the circumstances around you aren’t quite panning out the way you wanted. She said, “I think God is more concerned about our character than our circumstances.” Amen to that… even as much as that is tough to hear, my heart knows its true.

What part of our conversation struck you? Let's not let the conversation end here. Come find me @sarahwbragg on Instagram or Twitter or SurvivingSarahPodcast on Facebook.

Also, I really do love Jacey’s podcast guide. It is incredibly helpful for anyone interested in starting a podcast. She lays out how to think through what you show will be about and all the technical details. You can get a copy at SurvivingSarah.com/startyourpodcast

I love helping you survive while you drive, shop for groceries, fold laundry or hide in a closet. I am here for you! So as always, I hope that this show helps you survive a little easier.

Sissy Goff joins me for Episode 62. She is the Director of Child & Adolescent Counseling at Daystar outside of Nashville. She’s been a counselor for 24 years and is also an author of the books Raising Girls, Intentional Parenting, Raising Boys & Girls and the latest Are My Kids On Track. I truly enjoyed chatting with her. I wish we lived near her so that my girls and myself could benefit from who she is. She may have thought I was kidding, but I literally had at least 30 questions I wanted to ask her. We didn’t cover everything on my list so the good news is that she will be coming back on the show in the future! 

But in today’s episode, we chat about anxiety in our kids, parenting personalities, how to assume the best in your kids and how to develop our girls self-worth. This is an episode full of goodness. I’m praying for you all as you raise girls, love girls in ministry, love nieces and grand girls.

I think one of the biggest takeaways for me was the idea that maybe parenting has more to do with my own sanctification than the result of who I’m raising. That was one of the most freeing moments of realization. I know that God is working on me, but seeing it through the eyes of the Refiner changes it for me. It's not about punishing me. It's not about me doing all the right things in order to raise the “right” kids. Parenting is about letting God do His sanctifying work in me so that I reflect His image more.

Erin Loechner joins me for Episode 61. She is a writer, stylist and mom, living in the mid-west. She blogs at design for mankind and the heart of her is encouraging women to stop trying to define and label everything and just enjoy the life that we are actually given.

And with that, we talk about failure, parenting and the art of letting go. We weave the conversation around her new book Chasing Slow with a common thread of finding freedom, beauty and yourself in the middle of the chase. 

Chatting with her truly felt like sitting with a girlfriend that you've known for a long time. Her kindness and authenticity makes her so relatable. I will give you many takeaways from our conversation over at SurvivingSarah.com but the one I want to mention here is really the bottom-line message about learning to embrace who you are--all of you. The parts that are smooth and the parts that are rough around the edges. That is a step in learning to love you and finding contentment where you are. We need to learn to embrace our own hypocrisies and stop trying to soften our edges. Small admissions, no excuses, can bring freedom. Its just about being you--not your better self, but just you.

Jami Amerine joins me for Episode 60. She lives on a ranch in West Texas with her husband and children. Jami really is a mom for all women because she has 7 kids ranging from a 17 month old to one getting married. She is a blogger and a soon to be published author.

We have a candid conversation about why they chose foster care and adoption, her journey to truly believing Jesus, and how we can learn to do brave things. 

When we were chatting, it was like I bolded the following phrase in my head that Jami said: Believing God is the catalyst for doing brave things. When you believe that God is for you, that He loves you and that He makes you capable, then you can do brave things. Not only do I want to be a brave person, but I want our kids to do brave things. Brave doesn't mean that you aren't afraid. It means that you do something even though you are afraid. What are you currently afraid of? What do you feel like God is asking you to step into or out of? The catalyst for doing that brave thing is to start believing God.

Thank you again for listening. And as always, I hope that this show helps you survive a little easier.

Natalie Stanfield joins me for Episode 59. I think so many of you will relate to her because she is a lot like you. You probably know someone just like her at your church, in the carpool line or at Starbucks. That's because she is a wife and mama of two. She is someone who has allowed her past to connect to her present and influence her future. Because of her past, God has woven a thread through her life giving her a desire to help her kids love and serve others. 

We talk about motherhood, her feelings of her broken past, and how she discovered an easy way to talk to her kids (and your kids) about loving and loving others.

Thank you for listening! I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Natalie. Check out SurvivingSarah online for the show notes and everything we mentioned in the episode.

Rachel Stafford joins me for Episode 58. You may know her as the Hands Free Mama. She is is a wife and mother to girls, special ed teacher, blogger and New York Times best-selling author. When I started the podcast, Rachel was at the top of the list to people to invite to the kitchen table. I have been reading her blog for years and she has unknowingly been instrumental in helping me be a better mother.

Our conversation is one of my favorite episodes. I can't tell you how many notes I took and moments of just enlightenment that I experienced. I relate so well to Rachel and I'm thankful for her insight and encouragement. We talk about how to choose love today, how to let go of control and expectations and how failing is not as bad as we think. So pull up a chair to my kitchen table and join the conversation.

I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Rachel. I had so many takeaways from chatting with her. I'll include all of them in the Show Notes over at SurvivingSarah.com but the one I want to mention here the phrases that she used for herself and her kids. Phrases like "Be kind to yourself," and "We all make mistakes." I have been using those since we recorded. Sometimes you just need someone to tell you exactly what to say. The other one is "Only love today." I can't tell you how many times I have looked in the mirror and my first thought was something negative, but then I chose to say "only love today" and "be kind to yourself." I do believe that those words have the power to retrain our mind.

Here's what i love about our guests on the show--they are so generous. so many of them give away products over on my Instagram. So if you are not following me there, then you are missing out on some potential winnings!

This week, I would love it if you left a 5 star review of the show on iTunes. I know you hear me say that all the time, but it really does help women just like you find the show. So if there was a certain episode or just something that you love about the show, let iTunes know!

Thank you again for listening. And as always, I hope that this show helps you survive a little easier. 

Jan 10, 2017

Wynter Pitts joins me for Episode 57. She is the founder of For Girls Like You which is a resource ministry to tween girls and their parents. She produces some really amazing resources and can't wait for my oldest girl to get them.

Since Wynter is a mom of 4 girls, we have a conversation about motherhood. We talk about how God changed her perspective on being a mom, how to know when your child is ready for social media and how to foster the relationship between your daughters. I really, really enjoyed my time with her and I know you will, too. So pull up a chair to my kitchen table and join the conversation.

I hope you enjoyed my conversation with Wynter. I loved every bit of it. I especially loved hearing that it is possible for God to change your perspective about your children. I am truly honest when I say that motherhood isn't my favorite role. Doesn't mean I don't love my children, but it's just difficult. Ever since my conversation with Wynter, I have been asking God to give me the desires of my heart--to make my desires His desires towards my children. She said, "God's word will react in our lives." Praying for God to react in my heart.

Check out the show notes at SurvivingSarah.com for links to all of Wynter's resources. You'll find custom amazon links so if you choose to purchase the books then the show will get a small kickback.

Crystal Renaud joins me for Episode 56. Let me go ahead and warn you that we will be talking content that isn't safe for young ears. So you may want to listen to this one with your earbuds on. We talk about her story of how she was introduced to pornography, where her addiction led her and how she found healing. 

I know that talking about subjects like sex and pornography are awkward even as adults and the conversation can most definitely feel awkward with your children. But it is so important to initiate conversation with your children about this. Don't be afraid to talk about it. There are some great resources out there to help you talk to your kids. I'll be sure to link to those in our show notes online at SurvivingSarah.

If you are struggling with pornography, I want you to know that you are loved and accepted and valued apart from that. I want to encourage you to reach out to Crystal's ministry or maybe a friend or someone in your local church for help.

My friend, Merica Stum, joins me for the last episode of 2016--Episode 55. Merica is one of my favorite people and hands down the best cheerleader I know. She is a married to Jake and they have 3 boys. She is the Director of Girls On The Run for Southeast TN. I wanted to have her on the show nearly a year ago to talk about adoption and running a small business, but instead I knew she would be the perfect person to talk to about looking back and looking forward.

Merica joins me to talk about what she has learned this past year through turning 40--what she has learned about herself, about life and about family. This truly feels like a conversation between friends. And we will change your life with great advice about grocery shopping.

So pull up a chair to my kitchen table and join the conversation.

Lauren Haun joins me for Episode 54. She is just a gal like me and you except the fact that in my book she appears to be more like super woman bounding from building to building because she has 6 kids—3 biological and 3 from China. We talk about why she chose adoption after having 3 kids, how to cultivate relationships between kids and how she learned to trust God.

Jennifer Allison joins me for Episode 53. She is a user experience designer for UPS by day and an author and artist by night. And she is a self-proclaimed Rambunctious Kid. As we talk you will understand why she calls herself just that.

We talk about her story--a story about God allowed her to experience a lot of hardship--both self-inflicted and at the hand of others. Yet, through it all, she's learned that He loves her and that He is for her. She learned the hard way what believing lies about her identity can do and in a beautiful way, how believing truth can truly set her free.

So pull up a chair to my kitchen table and join the conversation.

Today's episode is a special milestone in the life of Surviving Sarah because we have our first male guest on the show. I've always said that I would have a man on the show as long as it benefits my audience. And today's guest certainly lives up to that!

David Thomas, joins me at my kitchen table for Episode 51. He's a therapist, author and father of adolescents. He's has over 20 years of experience counseling kids and families. He's written 7 books including Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys and Intentional Parenting and the DVD curriculum Raising Boys & Girls. We set out to talk about raising boys but I have to tell you that I got so much out of our conversation even though I only have girls. We talked a lot about child development and how that impacts your parenting. We also talk about how to navigate meltdowns, how to adjust your own expectations and how to deal with your child's aggression. So pull up a chair to the table and join the conversation.

For takeaways from the episode and all the resources mentioned, check out online at SurvivingSarah.

 

Nov 22, 2016

Melanie Shankle joins me for Episode 50. She is a wife, mother, writer and speaker. I asked Melanie to come on the show so that we could have an honest conversation about friendship. I don't know what stage of life you are in, but regardless, cultivating friendship is not easy. We talk about how to find authentic friends, how to model friendship for your children and what to do when you face conflict in a friendship. So pull up a chair to the table and join the conversation.

With this being the week of Thanksgiving, I just wanted to remind you of how thankful I am of you! Thank you for spending some of your week with me. I have loved connecting with you and hope that this show truly does help you survive a little easier.

And in the spirit of thanksgiving and of course black Friday, I wanted to let you know that my book is available for sale at SurvivingSarah.com I haven't really talked much about my book here, but if you haven't heard, I wrote a book called Body. Beauty. Boys. The Truth About Girls and How We See Ourselves. So, if you know a young woman--middle school, high school or even college--this would make a great gift. It's designed to help a girl discover how God sees her and how to learn to be content and satisfied with exactly who she is.

Nov 15, 2016

Ami Shroyer joins me for Episode 49. She is the sister-in-law to a friend of mine who contacted me about sharing Ami's story. Ami is a singer songwriter, leader of a classical conversations homeschool group and has a holistic business.

You know, since realizing that God wanted me to use my voice to push others forward, He has put people in my path and raised some things to the surface for my attention. Over the past year, I've come in contact either personally or just through social media several different women who have experienced the loss of a husband. I'm not gonna lie, I wondered why God was bringing these women to my attention. Was He preparing me to experience loss? But I believe that there are a lot of hurting women who need to hear that they are not alone--they need to hear someone say, "Me too. I understand what you are going through."

So pull up a chair, grab a tissue and hear Ami share the story of walking through losing her husband and searching for purpose along the way.
