020: Dana Crawford

640 427 Thriving Beyond Belief

Dana and I have been friends for many years and I am so excited to have her on the podcast today.

She has spent over half of her life as a wife to her husband Chris, a dermatologist, and a mother to her two children, Chase and Candice!

She is a former teacher, but now loves to cook and entertain in her spare time when she’s not pouring into her three grandsons, age 5 to a newborn!

Her son-in-law is the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo, and her son Chase is best known for his role on Gossip Girl.

We had a great conversation about being humble, vulnerable, and what it means to thrive as a woman, wife, and mom!

We talk about being a “good wife” and how to grow and balance your life.  She feels “you can’t ever pull these things off by yourself and each day must be completely covered by God’s grace.”

Keeping your house in order and spending a little extra to have some help with this can make a huge difference in being a parent and wife; it creates a balance for everyone.

We talk about vulnerability and insecurity; “life is hard and getting older isn’t for sissies.  As we become more vulnerable, we realize this isn’t a personality issue, it’s a trust issue.”

Dana and I had such a meaningful conversation and I am so excited to share that with you.

Here’s my interview with Dana Crawford.

 

016: Chrissie Dunham

My guest on the TBB Podcast today is my very good friend Chrissie Dunham.

Chrissie was born in Oklahoma but has made her home in Plano, Texas with Charlie, her husband, and high school sweetheart.  They have two grown daughters, Katie and Abbie, who are both married and have given Chrissie and Charlie five grandchildren.

She is the Global Director of Women’s Ministry at Prestonwood Baptist Church, cherishes time with her family, is a terrific communicator, does speaking engagements, and has led countless women’s bible studies. Chrissie is passionate about her walk with the Lord and lives by her favorite slogan, “The Party Don’t Stop!” She hopes every believer knows that eternal life begins when you meet Jesus and there is a party in heaven in your honor, forever!

To define thrive Chrissie refers to 2Peter:1-2 “His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him.” Bottomline, God wants us to prosper and succeed. But, the reality of life creates a struggle in our relationships, marriages, and parenting. In Chrissie’s daily walk she has found that women struggle in four common areas;  Am I loved, will I be respected, what is my significance, and do I feel secure in who I am?  To answer any of these questions Chrissie believes that every woman should start by asking herself the question, “How is my walk with the Lord today?”

Daily, Chrissie listens to women and understands that life is challenging but wants those struggling to know you must run your own race and fix your eyes on Jesus, regardless of the circumstances you face in life.  Through the years, Chrissie’s parents have given her practical advice and one of the things her mom told her about relationships is that you need to surround yourself with people who believe like you, pray, and be in God’s word daily. Chrissie strives to live this advice out in her daily walk.

In our interview, we talk about fear, marriage, and Christmas traditions!  As expected, I got exactly what I love so much about Chrissie, if you ask a question, she answers from her heart.  We had a great conversation and I can’t wait for you to listen in!

Today I am so excited to talk to my good friend Mona Corwin.  She is married to her highschool sweetheart Warren, they have five children and 2 grandbabies.

Mona has an amazing ministry called Balanced MomLife where she invests in mentoring young moms and passionately teaches them that if you embrace the framework God uniquely created for you, you will thrive and be unrivaled! Most moms struggle with the “overwhelmed and never enough syndrome,” wishing there were some clear cut answers. America’s Mom Mentor Mona Corwin coaches moms with real life solutions. Because motherhood and marriage can be hard, she has developed a three part framework that works to help moms; Own their roles, Find their balance, and Live their dreams.

Mona and I talk about what it means to have a soft strength in your marriage. As we are called as women to be wives, parents, and moms, we must first nourish our soul so that we can richly fulfill these unique roles.

I hope you will be as blessed by this interview as I was.
