I am thrilled to have Julie Solomon on Thriving Beyond Belief today!

Julie currently lives in LA with her husband and son. She blogs and has a podcast that focuses on helping others gratitude, grow their business as influencers in the blog/podcast market.

The theme of the blog today is simply finding balance in the multi-faceted roles women have today. From finding our personal purpose in life to marriage to motherhood, Julie emphasizes the importance of meeting all of these pressures in our lives with gratitude. Gratitude in who the Lord is in our lives gives us the ability to thrive. God daily gives us everything we need, so we need to be wonderful stewards of His gifts and utilize them to our highest potential.

Julie speaks on how living with the mindset of abundance lets us live without fear. We learn to lean into the abundance of the Lord in every aspect of our lives, so that we are to find balance in being working mothers and wives. One way does this is by learning to create before consuming, which leads to seeking gratitude first instead of seeing what’s lacking in life. We take some time to discuss having the perspective of abundance rather than scarcity.

In this episode, we speak specifically on intentional practices in your life that lead to balance. This includes ways to truly connect with your children, how to carve out intentional time with your spouse, how to deal with anxiety, the importance of community, and how to carve out time in your schedule for yourself.

We end with Julie talking through how to set good goals in your life and business. She speaks on truly knowing your “why”, which helps steer every other decision you need to make, in regards to your purpose.

I hope today’s episode encourages, uplifts, and challenges you today!

I am beyond excited about today’s podcast. My guest, Curt Steinhorst, loves Jesus, is married, has two young boys, and has been our friend for almost 20 years.

Diagnosed with ADD as a child, Curt knows intimately the challenges companies face to keep the attention of today’s distracted workforce and customer.

During our interview, Curt gave me his definition of thriving from both a corporate and personal perspective. Both definitions point to becoming aware of living in the moment, rather than being frustrated about where we may be going. Honestly, my conversation with Curt was so eye-opening as we talked about the impact social media has in shaping our relationships, marriages, and communities. The digital world allows us an instant connection, but can also leave us feeling very lonely.

I know you will enjoy this fascinating interview with Curt Steinhorst.

As we continue into the new year,  I am so excited about the inspiring story my guest shared with me today.  My guest today, Katie Bryant, is married, has three kids, and lives in Rochester, New York. She is a Fitness and Lifestyle Coach, but honestly, listening to her story and how she got to where she is today is so riveting, it brought me to tears.

Katie shares that she had a vision of what her marriage would look like, but didn’t realize God had a very different plan.  After her third child was born, she began to fight depression, anxiety and struggled to understand her purpose. To most people, her life looked perfect, but inside Katie was spiraling down and lived in such a low place, she decided she was going to end her life.

Miraculously, her beautiful children would be part of God’s healing journey.  Katie ended up in the hospital, heavily medicated, and began a six-year journey to discover a new life God had planned.  The road was difficult and not very clear after coming home from the hospital.  Katie shared how she started overeating, drinking alcohol, and gained 50 pounds.  She tried every gimmick and diet, but two words kept coming in front of her, CLEAN EATING. She began reaching out to this community and over the next months found support from others who wanted to cheer each other on.

Katie admits her walk has been a difficult road, but today as a Fitness and Lifestyle Coach one of the questions she asks women is,  “Why do we work so hard to cover our shame and vulnerability?”  Katie’s definition of thrive is “living my best life, not what society thinks, and helping others do the same.” She used to end her day with the thought, “I’m still not good enough,” but today, she ends her day knowing she has tried in every area to the best of her ability.

Katie made a decision to change her mindset and today her mantra is “I NEVER QUIT.” She focuses on her journey, and to be the best person she can be. I hope Katie’s story will be a blessing to you today.

Here’s my interview with Katie Bryant.
