Episode 30 – Cherlyn Decker

Join me as we welcome back my guest Cherlyn Decker!  If you didn’t catch her last episode, make sure you check out episode 24. Today Cherlyn shares with us how to unleash our ROAR.

R = Respond. First we have to know how to respond. Find a promise from God about what’s going on in your life right now and begin speaking it out loud. “When we know what God says about our circumstances and we declare those things out loud it commands God’s authority over our circumstances”

O = Overcome Obstacles. Second we have to learn how to overcome the obstacles. Take a quick minute to think about your trials – ask yourself were there any traps which you see now in hindsight? “One of the key things to remember when it comes to the obstacles is we can see them coming.  If we know what to look for. We have to spot the traps

A = Apply. Third we apply what we’ve learned from previous seasons. Sometimes our thoughts and feelings are not true. Sometimes they lie to us. Most of us have heard that voice that whispers in our ear things that are not true about us or someone else and get us to doubt, to wonder, to question until we believe the lie. We need to take those thoughts and feelings captive. Philippians 4:8 says to think on whatever is true. This means we have a choice, we have control over what we think and what we feel and we can FILTER them as soon as they come in and filter them through what we know to be true. Begin to evaluate your story to find the lessons and then ask God to show you his perspective. “We cannot avoid trials in the future, oh I wish we could. But, how we survive one trial is an indicator of how we will survive the next one. Unless something changes.”

R = Reveal. And last we reveal our story to others. You don’t have to wait for the trial to be over: you can start by telling your story to someone over lunch today then over the next few weeks begin to journal about what God has done for you and over the next month think through who your story can help. “The enemy wants to keep us quiet, when our trials are finally over, he wants us to get on with life. He doesn’t want us to be vulnerable about our struggles and he doesn’t want us to share our triumphs. But I’m telling you to share it because it will help others be overcomers.”

Episode 32 – Melissa Kottelenberg

Episode 32 – Melissa Kottelenberg

Join us as my guest Melissa Kottelenberg shares the story of her fourth child, Tyson. When Tyson was born, he was sleeping a lot & had to be woken up to feed. Melissa knew that something wasn’t right, so they took Tyson to the Emergency Room. God placed their Pediatrician in the ER that day who took a look at Tyson & quickly recognized there was an issue.
It was discovered that Tyson was born with severe congenital heart defects. He's had 3 open-heart surgeries and multiple cardiac procedures, scans, tests, etc and he was at one time heading down the transplant road because he used to get sick so often, the doctors talked about doing not only a heart transplant but also a lung transplant! It's a miracle that he is alive because his defects are so severe that they are 100% fatal if left untreated. Melissa has seen God's providence and cares in so many areas of Tyson’s life! God also led Melissa to the healing powers of doTERRA essential oils that have not only changed the course of Tyson’s life but also Melissa’s! Now… Tyson’s medical team no longer talks about a heart + lung transplant with them! To God be the glory!! Thank you Melissa for sharing with us!

Episode 29 – Rachel Yastro

Episode 29 – Rachel Yastro

Join us as Rachel Yastro shares her story with us. Being raised Catholic, Rachel always considered herself to be a Christian. She believed in God, she had a reverence for Him… so she was a Christian. But after her Freshman year in College, her close friend kept inviting her to church with her. After many no’s, she finally said yes. And she ended up going all summer. The summer ended with her realizing that she was a sinner and needed a Savior. She gave her life to Jesus Christ. Just 3 short weeks later… she returned to college, a baby Christian, not yet having a foundation to build on. This led to her going right back to her old friend groups & doing things the way she did before. Fast forward to the summer of her senior year, her boyfriend of 3 years proposed. She said yes! But the Holy Spirit began to work on her. Rachel’s fiancé was not a Christian. She started to become physically ill over it. Rachel was wrestling with God over it, and 4 weeks before the wedding, she called it off. God began opening new doors of growth. First, in TX working with Women of Faith, then to GA with Dream Big Ministries. It was while in GA that she met her husband Ryan. The ladies she worked with at Dream big really challenged her to dig into the Bible more, and so she did. And God really came alive to her! God began to speak to her through stories in the Bible that she had never read before; showing her the picture of Jesus in 2 Samuel & reminding her that she’s invited to eat at the King’s table forever! This sparked a passion in Rachel to teach the word of God! So much so that Rachel and her husband Ryan started a ministry called Seek Truth Ministries and Media.

Episode 28 – Ashley Price

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!
