003: Kat Harris

1024 683 Thriving Beyond Belief

Today on the TBB podcast, I am super excited to share my interview with Kat Harris.

Kat grew up here in Dallas and was one of six children.  Her childhood “looked normal” to everyone else, but the reality was her family was broken.  Her dad was an alcoholic, became homeless, and her parents divorced. Kat spent most of her teenage years and even into college searching for approval.

She didn’t realize how chaotic and stressful her world had become and how all these unhealthy storylines she had lived would affect her.  Her health suffered, she was mentally exhausted, developed an eating disorder and continued to date the wrong guys.

But, only by God’s grace, her dad became sober when she was a senior in college.  Relationships began to be restored, and Kat realized how “struggle and pain” want to be kept hidden, but when you bring truth to light, fear loses its power!

As we talked more about her story, Kat shared how she would define the word “thrive” and how she overcame a “survival mentality” that she had lived her whole life!

Today, Kat has created balance and rhythm in her daily life and has a “life board-of-directors” who have all access and keep her accountable.  She has learned that “real change happens when we show up”, start small and commit to the journey you are in.

Kat and I could have talked for hours, but we conclude the interview talking about The Refined Woman, an online magazine she and her friend Emily Scott started where they  share real stories that empower women to embrace their beauty, identity and value through the art of storytelling!

002: Kathie Lee Gifford

1024 683 Thriving Beyond Belief

Today on the TBB podcast I am super excited to have a very special guest and friend.

Kathie Lee Gifford and I first met in 2009, when she and Hoda had Jeff and I on their show, to talk about our book, I Do Again. Since then, we have had many opportunities to see each other in NYC, talk about our kids, and share the latest is in our lives!

She has had a successful four-decade career as a television host, actress, singer, playwright, and author, and is best known for her 15 years on “Regis and Kathie Lee.” As most of you know, she is the co-host of the fourth hour of the Today Show with Hoda Kotb.

One of the things I love the most about Kathie Lee is that she is unashamed about her walk with Jesus Christ, and shares her walk whenever possible. On today’s podcast, Kathie Lee gives us her insight about how she has learned to thrive, regardless of the circumstances she’s been given in life.

She puts God first in her life and lives by “It’s God’s faithfulness to me, not my faithfulness to God that matters.”

In our conversation, we talk about what you can do to prioritize your day, stay positive, laugh and enjoy every moment you have.  One of my favorite things is talking about her daily call with her mom!

Kathie Lee also has a new book coming out in March 2018. The Rock, The Road, And The Rabbi  preorders start September 21, 2017 and I can’t wait to get it!
