172 - A Million Dollar Baby and The God Who Provides - Jocelin Whitaker

My guest Jocelin and her husband run a health food store called Whitaker's Natural Market in Bellville, Ohio. But their story goes much deeper than just owning a store. Jocelin is a doctor of traditional naturopathy and a certified fertility counselor, specializing in toxic mold syndrome, Lyme disease, and fertility issues.

Today she is sharing her personal journey of faith and the challenges she faced in her high-risk pregnancy (with preeclampsia) to the premature birth of her daughter, Yalissa, weighing only 1 pound 12 ounces. Jocelin's faith and community played a central role in guiding and supporting her every step of the way.

Whitaker's Natural Market is Jocelin and Marc's company and Jocelin's natural health practice is On Facebook Whitaker's Natural Market

and on YouTube at Whitaker's Natural Market

134 - What If They Knew? - Jayme Sinsmyr

Trigger warning- Today we are talking about adultery. We are talking not only about the shattered lives but the healing and forgiveness that God gives when there is repentance. Though Jayme knew it was wrong, her life spiraled out of control down that slippery slope until she felt that she was a prisoner of her own making. Jesus brought forgiveness and new life. Healing from the shame and guilt of sin. Now Jayme is living as an overcomer through the blood of the lamb and the power of her testimony.
