Join us as Reelika Schulte shares her story with us. Reelika was born in the Soviet Union.  She was always an A+ student destined for great things. Reelika found herself in a toxic relationship and found out that she was pregnant. When she was 6 months pregnant, she decided to leave the relationship. Her loving parents took her in to help support her and her son. During this, Reelika struggled with feeling like a failure and felt a lot of shame. But she always had faith & knew God wanted more for her. It was a turning point in her life when she gave herself permission to feel loved again. After much prayer, God led her to an online dating site. And after a short time, she had a connection with a man through this site.  The problem… she was in Northern Europe & he was in the US. But that didn’t stop them from growing closer in their relationship. Reelika was actively seeking signs of confirmation from the Lord and He started giving her sign after sign. This wasn’t just a husband for her, she wanted to make sure he was the perfect dad for her son. After a planned “short” visit to the US, Reelika received a proposal for marriage! She left everything behind and started her new life. Five years later, they just celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary & recently added a new baby to the family! And Reelika’s first son is best buddies with her husband! He never even remembers life without his new dad.

Thank you again to Reelika for sharing with us today!

Episode 28 – Ashley Price

Join us this as my guest, Ashley Price, shares her very personal story of being sexually assaulted as a Freshman in college.  Growing up in NJ, Ashley always knew she would live in the South.  She was raised in a non-Christian home, yet just knew that God had a plan for her to marry a Southern, Christian man. Ashley grew up close to the beach in NJ & wanted to attend a college in the south, but wanted to be close to the beach. So she searched & applied to one college in South Carolina that was close to the beach & she got in! She was so excited to move and start her college days. While she was there for orientation, she met a boy and quickly started falling for him. She would see him often & they would spend evenings and nights talking on the phone. Then things took a quick turn. Ashley had not been feeling good that day, so she stayed in her dorm room with her roommate. The boy she had been talking to wanted to come to visit her, so she said yes. While he was there, Ashley was sexually assaulted by him and then he left.  Ashley was left wondering what in the world just happened?? After speaking with a close friend that is a Police Officer, Ashley called campus police to report what happened.  This was the start of something huge at her school.  Because he was a Football player for a D1 school, this became BIG news fast.  After this was made known on campus, other girls started coming forward, over and over again reporting sexual assault by members of the football team.  Ashely’s action led to the uncovering of a huge coverup of sexual assault incidents on the football team. Things started to get rough for Ashley, being publicly harassed by students, fans of the football team, etc.  Because Ashley did not yet know Jesus, she started looking to alcohol for comfort.  Ashley shares how she was heading down a really bad path, but God met her at the age of 24 and she gave her life to Jesus! Looking back, she can see God’s protection in her life even when she wasn’t following Jesus. Even though this was a horrible thing that happened in Ashley’s life, the purpose was for good! She continues to share & see the many ways that God is making an impact. Thank you Ashley for sharing your story!

Episode 27 – Clarice Cabanlit

Episode 27 – Clarice Cabanlit

Join us as my guest, Clarice Cabanlit shares her story of discovering her true identity with us. Growing up, Clarice would have considered herself average. Others described her as shy her whole life. After high school, Clarice ended up going to a University that she wasn’t really excited about, but she went because it was a “good” school. She entered college not really knowing what God wanted her to do with her life. So she majored in Business. Halfway through University, she started to feel God calling her to major in Education. But since she had already spent so much time going for Business… she just continued on.
After graduation, Clarice got a really good job with a hotel chain. It was a “good” job, but she just kept feeling God pull her to be in Education. So she quit. Then she ended up job-hopping as she was trying to discover God’s purpose for her life.
When an education job opened in Indonesia & she jumped on the opportunity! Her plan was to try it out for a year & that ended up staying 6 years. After the 6 years, Clarice then felt God leading her to move back to her home in the Philippines. It was at that point where she really started to doubt because there weren’t any job opportunities in education in the Philippines. She was questioning if she really did hear from God. He then reminded her that God’s plans are always GREAT, not from a human perspective, but because its God’s plans for her life. God then started to reveal to Clarice that it’s not about the career that she chooses, it’s about her living her life honoring him and worshiping him in what she does. God shifted her perspective and she was now really focused on making an impact in children’s lives. God was also really teaching her about her true identity in Christ! As she looked back through the timeline of her life, she could see God’s handiwork in everything she had ever gone through. She now knows that she is fearfully & wonderfully made because God is working in her & through her.

Episode 26 – Kim Waggoner

Episode 26 – Kim Waggoner

Join us as my guest Kim Waggoner shares her story with us! Kim grew up in a home where her father was an alcoholic. Her parents ended up getting a divorce when she was only 10 years old. This left her with wounds that God would reveal later in her life. God had always been her go-to, someone Kim could always talk to her whole life. But it had been hard for her to understand God as her Father figure since she had such trauma from her relationship with her earthly father. But as she explained to God how much she loved her children, and that she would do anything for them, God revealed to her that he felt the same way for her. That changed everything for Kim! After being married & living in an abusive relationship, Kim was led down the path of divorce. As a single mom, she found herself in a spot where she was totally relying on God to get her through and for the protection of her family. Kim also shares how God changed her heart about love, and she then remarried. Then in 2010, she received a Stage 4 Cancer diagnosis. This challenged her faith at a whole new level. But God was not done with Kim on this earth. He had big plans for her. Kim shares how God has taught her to work out of a place of rest and grace instead of performance, pushing, grinding, and striving. In the process, he reminded her of her identity as a daughter first! Women, remember, YOU are enough! God is trustworthy and faithful. You aren’t loved based on your performance. God will guide and direct your workday. Working to perform feels like a heavy yoke.. driven by a taskmaster. Working from a place of grace and rest is a light burden, brings peace, motivated by love. Thank you so much to Kim for sharing her story with us today!

Episode 22 – Jennie Hays

Episode 22 – Jennie Hays

Join us as Jennie Hays shares her story of battling her difficulty getting pregnant. Through this process, Jennie learned that she had PCOS, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, and wasn’t ovulating.  She had always believed that God has a purpose for everything that He does and that His timing is perfect, but when you are in the middle of infertility you really start to wonder if you are right. Jennie didn’t give up hope, but she found it SO hard to hold on to the small thread of hope she did have. Not knowing what PCOS was, or what to do about it. Jennie began to research. She found out that it is an Insulin Resistance Disease and if not treated can lead to Diabetes T2.  She had always been told that Diabetes was irreversible, progressive, and deadly.  She was terrified as she was at that time working in a podiatrist's office scheduling surgeries…most of which were diabetics losing their toes and feet. 
Jennie took this to God asking Him to reveal a way to fix this! He showed her that there is actually a way to reverse it with both diet and lifestyle changes. Immediately, Jennie started this and not only did it reverse the Prediabetes in the first 2 months, but she also started ovulating for the first time in probably over 20 years and the weight just flew off! 
In the first week of December, she had a positive pregnancy test!  They were so excited.  And then a week later she miscarried.  Jennie was devastated! She was heartbroken. They kept trying & trying, but no more positive tests. This went on for 6 months. 
When both step-daughters called in the same week to tell them they were pregnant they knew it was time to stop trying.   It wasn’t until one day at work Jennie had someone who was sharing their struggles with Diabetes and she was able to share her knowledge with them that God revealed.  While breaking her heart was never God’s plan, He knew that the infertility journey would not only save Jennie’s life but help her to save the lives of countless other women.  Jennie had a new calling on her life.  To share this new information with women all over the world! And now, she has two beautiful grandsons to love! Thank you Jennie for sharing your story!

Episode 19 – Alison Liddic

Join us as I (Alison Liddic) share my personal story of searching for 12 years for answers to my ever evolving health issues. I was 38 years old and literally felt like I was going to die. Going up the stairs was a huge task as I felt extreme pain in my joints, and my bones ached from the inside out. Every test was perfect, and my doctors had no answers. But God revealed something called Breast Implant Illness… something that was a totally new term to me! Once I found out, I went through all the phases of grief in about 1 week. I had literally felt robbed of so many years of my life. Years with my children that I will never get back! God led me down all the right paths the more I seeked his face & eventually to a surgeon in Florida to have my implants removed. Every step of the way was answered prayer, after answered prayer! God was showing me through this how amazing He is and how much he cared for me! He was also reaching me about my true identity in Christ Jesus & was taking me back to my heart motives for getting the breast implants in the first place. It’s now been 9 months since my surgery & God continues to heal me with each and every day! Almost every single symptom I had is 100% gone! Gone! I truly feel like God gave me a second chance to live my life.
