Sandra Stanley joins me for Episode 23. She is wife to Pastor Andy Stanley and they live here in the Atlanta area. They have 3 kids--one out of college and two in college. And once they crossed the finish line--the one all parents dream of and became empty nesters--God surprised with them. He led them to become foster parents.

I don't know about you, but as a woman I treasure any time that I get to sit at the feet of a woman who is down the road from me. I want to hear about all the things. And this episode is chocked full of great advice. Advice for foster parents, young moms, wives and all women young and old no matter what stage of life. We also talk about her book, The Comparison Trap, along with what it looks like to choose obedience, to live out the fruit of the spirit and to find your worth in something that doesn't change. Plus, you will absolutely love her survival kit.

I asked Emily to come on the show to tell her storybecause she has faced almost all the things that we as women fear.She has faced abuse, divorce, infertility and infidelityat different points in her life. And I wanted herto share with you to see that fear doesn't have to ruin youand God can use you no matter what you face

Jennifer Willis joins me for Episode 20. I met Jennifer a couple of years ago at elementary school pick up time. She is just seemed like a normal mom but as I got to know her, her story unfolded before me. She has faced great loss yet experienced great joy, too. She shares her story today on the show--what happens when life is less than you imagined. When the picture in your head isn't matching what is reality. They lost jobs, lost 5 babies, had a cancer scare and adopted a special needs kid. Ups and downs, but she clings to a God who overcomes.

She shares some really great practical advice for starting a business and for how to build an authentic faith in your kids.

God stitched her family together in different ways and from different places. And she has experienced over the last few years what its like to get the life you always dreamed of only to realize through losing it that it wasn't what she truly wanted. 

It didn't take long for us to realize that we are kindred spirits--especially unified in our love for gingham shirts. We could have easily talked for hours, but instead we kept it slightly shorter. We talked about everything from books to Netflix to our dream houses to being front yard people and so very much more. Shannan has become a strong voice of influence in a community of people who desire to love their neighbor.

Today's episode of Surviving Sarah is a conversation with author and speaker, Wendy Speake. We talk about how she was surprised by mommy anger. She would have never described herself as an angry person yet spouts of anger were triggered in her by her kids. We talk about her new book (co-authored with Amber Lia) that released Feb 16, 2016 called Triggers: Exchanging Parent's Angry Reactions For Biblical Responses. Our conversation felt like therapy and I left feeling inspired and encouraged--I know you will, too.

Blythe Hill, creator of the campaign Dressember, joins me on the show. We talk about how a dress can change the world. She took her love of fashion and combined it with a passion to help women who don't have a voice. In the campaign's 3rd year, she along with many other advocates raised over $915,000 USD! It's amazing what women in the hands of a very capable God can do! That money will fund over 200 rescue operations, pay over 45 anti-trafficking lawyer's salaries for a year or pay for aftercare therapy for over 1000 survivors for a year. That is truly remarkable! I can't wait to join the campaign in December 2016.
