Are y’all ready for this episode?? We have THE Bob Goff on today’s episode of Thriving Beyond Belief! I am so so excited to have you hear this episode- it is one for the books!

Bob Goff is an incredible speaker and author of books: Love Does, Love Does for Kids and Everybody Always. He is a husband and father, and one of his many passions is building schools all around the world.

We discuss the different books that Bob has written and his particular focus on love in these books, for both adults and younger people. He gives such great insight on how we need to engage the very people that are the hardest for us to love through knowing what true love is: sacrifice and commitment.

We model love for the unloved by how Jesus first loved us. He also focuses on what true love instead of what the world tells us it is. We need to simplify and bring the main focus back on the Lord. Bob talks about loud voices versus true voices and discerning what we are going to listen to in our lives.

Bob has such wisdom on what is truly meaningful in our life. We need to prioritize what is most important and learning that it is ok to fail while trying rather than fail by watching. There is so much growth in the failure of trying.

We talk deeply about marriage and how to make your marriage such an important aspect of your life. You need to show up to make an impact. Sometimes we confuse oneness with sameness because although we are one, our spouse can be so different than us.

“God isn’t dazzled when we go across the ocean. He’s amazed when we walk across the street.” I am reminded to engage with those that are around us and be intentional with others, and the love of Jesus will radiate from you.

This is one of the jolliest podcasts so far on Thriving Beyond Belief, so grab a cup of coffee and listen in  today!

Becky Herrick joins me on this episode of Thriving Beyond Belief and I could not be more excited!

A wife, a mother of triplets, and a full-time recruiter are just a few roles Becky plays in her life. She balances all of these things as well as ministering, speaking, and writing when she can.

Becky’s story is one of choosing joy in the midst of tragedies that have happened in her story. She describes miracles that happened along the way as well, seeing the hand of God throughout the times of sorrow.

We talk about walking through tragedy, how to cope and lean on the Lord in those times, and how to do normal life in the midst of the struggle.

Becky talks about her and her husband’s fertility journey that led to triplets as well as walking through all that comes with the loss of a child.
She discusses in-depth walking in guilt and learning that guilt is not from the Lord. It was a long road of handing the burdens of her loss over to the Lord and investing in counseling and community for healing.

Through the suffering, you see God’s grace through it, showing you what life is truly about. Becky talks about the freedom that always comes with facing the struggle and tackling it rather than running from it.

In the moments of the desperation for the Lord, the beauty of the Lord truly shines in only a way that can be seen after loss or abuse or trials, etc. It is the choice of choosing to go through the process and knowing the situation in itself isn’t good, but what can come from it can be good.

Becky encourages us all to be better, not bitter. She is so honest with her story and I hope you all have tissues handy when you listen. It will be an episode you’ll forever be impacted by.

On today’s episode of Thriving Beyond Belief, we welcome Brittany Price Booker!

Brittany’s story is one you will not want to miss. At 25 and with three little ones at home, she received a call that changed the trajectory of her life. She was told that her perfectly healthy husband unexpectedly died at work. With all she had dreamed and hoped in life, the Lord took her story and showed her that He is in full control and can take anything we walk through and use it for His greater story and plan. He assured her that she would know Him in ways she never would have without this part of her story.

During this episode, we speak on loss. Brittany explains that loss is not just related to death. Loss can (and will) show up in our lives in many ways, but what we can gain through our growth and faithfulness in the Lord and know of His love is what gets us through the loss. She talks about how God called her to be a widow and single mom.

She speaks on identity and how trials can refocus you on who Christ says you are. She reminds us that even in the midst of unbelievable pain, we have purpose. The Lord has purpose for us and He has light for us in the midst of the darkness. We have to remember that if the Lord allows us to go through trials, He has equipped us to do so and He will make the pain worth it. There is beauty that will bloom from the pain.

You are not in the season you are in by accident. So know that God wants you to thrive in this moment. In this season. In the now.

We even talk about focus and the balance of focusing on self and focusing on others. When we only look at ourselves, bitterness and resentment can shift our perspective. But the reality is that everyone has struggles, and we are to be Jesus to others. If we look out, we gain a perspective of gratitude because we remember that even in the midst of loss, we also see all that the Lord has given us.

Brittany even discusses the new challenges that come with remarriage. Success in any marriage, especially remarriage, requires humility, communication, and wise counsel in your life.

This episode is full of such amazing truths, that I need you to grab that coffee or hot tea and listen right now! You will not want to miss this one.
