Ep. 62 | How to Survive When Your Life Falls Apart

Ep 62 IG Post 1.png

Sometimes, life can be really, really hard.

Sometimes things can get so bad it feels like everything is falling apart around us.

In this episode we are going to dig into some really practical advice and encouragement to help you keep going when it feels like you or your life is falling apart.

Every bit of what you’ll hear me share has been pulled straight from the trenches of fighting through one of the hardest seasons of my own life.

We’d just moved to a new state where we didn’t know a soul - away from our support system of friends and family.

We were trying to juggle moving, four kids, homeschooling, running two businesses while taking on a third, and the stress mixed with poor self care triggered some crippling anxiety and health issues (which just made things even harder.)

To top it all off, sexual addiction nearly led to my 10-year marriage falling apart.

Everything was a mess. I was a mess.

But thanks to God’s unending grace and goodness I not only survived, but grew.

And no matter what you face in your life, I’m here to tell you that you can too.
