Page of Our Lives - Hope in Infertility with Nicole Clark

Page of Our Lives - Hope in Infertility with Nicole Clark

Nicole Clark is a wife, mom, and a former background dancer for Justin Timberlake (yes!). But more than that, Nicole is someone who knows intimately the pain and heartache of infertility. It was through her own struggle with infertility that her ministry, Twelve 12, was born.

Twelve 12 Ministries creates a safe space for emotional restoration, physical healing, and spiritual discipleship for women who have or are experiencing infertility, miscarriage or infant loss. Through their programs and resources, they are giving women hope during some of their darkest days.

We loved getting to know Nicole and hearing more about Twelve 12 Ministries. For more information, visit www.twelve12ministries.org or on Instagram @twelve12ministries.

Page of Our Lives - S3 E15 - Growing Slow with Jennifer Dukes Lee

Jennifer Dukes Lee is an author, speaker, book editor and accidental farm girl. She is passionate about sharing the Good News through storytelling, including in her latest book, "Growing Slow: Lessons on Un-Hurrying Your Heart from an Accidental Farm Girl." Jennifer knows first hand that going big and hustling hard leaves us stressed, empty, and out of sorts, yet is often our cue to step into a far more satisfying, sustainable pace. Through "Growing Slow", Jennifer tells her story of rude awakening to the ways her chosen lifestyle of running hard, scaling fast, and the never ending chase for results was taking a toll on her body, heart, and soul. But when she finally gave herself permission to believe it takes time to grow good things, she found a new kind of freedom. 

We loved chatting with Jennifer and getting to know her better. You can learn more about Jennifer and her books at www.jenniferdukeslee.com. Or follow along on her adventures on Instagram and Facebook: @jenniferdukeslee.

Page of Our Lives - S3 E13 - It's Prom Season!

It's prom season pretty much everywhere you look right now. Recently Paige saw her two oldest kids have their first prom experience. From the dresses, to the pictures, to the promposals, one thing's for sure, prom in 2022 is nothing like it was when we were in high school.  All of the glitter and glam had the two of us reminiscing about our own proms and laughing about the memories on today's episode. 

Join us for this fun look at a page of our lives on today's episode.

On this episode, we're crossing the finish line on things we've been wanting to get done in our lives. From big things to small things, we know how important it is to finish something once you've started.

Page of Our Lives - S3 E8 - Connecting Your Passion to Your Purpose

If you've ever struggled with knowing what you're supposed to be doing with your life, know that you're not alone. We have been there and can attest that when you learn to identify your passions, it will help you uncover your purpose. 

Paige is currently on a similar journey. She's been working with business and life coach Tricia Dempsey of Thrive Her to help define her passions and build a life around her God-given purpose. Paige shares some of her journey with us on this episode. 

Leslee shares about her own passion projects and talks about the importance on not despising small beginnings. Everyone has to start at zero when they step out to create something new. Taking time to recognize the doors you've been through on the journey is a powerful way to encourage yourself and keep going.

Page of Our Lives - Ep. 13 - How to Keep Going When You Wake Up to Crap

Page of Our Lives - Ep. 13 - How to Keep Going When You Wake Up to Crap

Today we wrap up our series on pursuing our dreams by asking ourselves - as people who are working hard to make dreams a reality, what do we do when we wake up to crap?

I apologize if you’re somebody who doesn’t like that word, but let’s be honest...sometimes it feels like it keeps dropping no matter how hard we’re working to keep life cleaned up and moving forward.

We had started our conversation off air and soon realized it might be something you’d want to hear, so we hit record a few minutes into our discussion. But don’t worry...we saved the good, the bad and the stinky for you.

If you keep waking up to crap, We hope that this page from our lives might be the encouragement you need to scoop it up and keep going.
