Kim shares with us her journey of grief and healing after the devastating loss of her teenage daughter in a horrific accident during a family vacation. They discuss the hard reality that everyone faces while going through the different stages of grief. Ashley relates to Kim through her own experience with loss. They share how grief can be a hard topic for people to broach. They don’t know what to say or how to handle someone who is in the midst of grief. Kim gives some incredibly insightful tips for those on the outside looking to help their loved ones process their grief. Ashley brings up the struggle with Faith, and God after you lost someone. It’s very easy to feel anger, resentfulness towards God after a loss. But that’s okay, there’s no wrong way to grieve. 

Further, Kim gives advice on keeping your marriage strong after losing a child, with grace, patience, and love. There is healing and hope after you suffer loss not just with death but in any other way that you are grieving.

Ep 12: Outlander, addiction to social media, and conspiracy theories

Ep 12: Outlander, addiction to social media, and conspiracy theories

This weeks episode  Amber and Ashley poke fun at themselves and the silly things they are addicted to and some not so silly things. Ashley shares all about how she’s single handedly got several people into her favorite show Outlander. They compare Game of thrones and Outlander and which one stays true to the book. They get deep on why they are addicted to the things that they are like social media. Why is our brains so addicted to social media, clearing those red notifications? What keeps us in our phones/computers instead of being present and enjoying their lives?

Is social media just a way for people to stalk you and not interact you? Ashley talks about moving away after getting married and how it changed her friendships. Relying too much on social media to keep those friendships intact. 

Amber brings up conspiracy theories about being targeted through social media. Is the government listening? Or at least Target? There has to be a reason why we say something out loud then an ad pops up for us? Plus, the constant spam emails from stores that fill up in your inbox from deals and discounts that we don’t need.  

Also, they discuss how they would spend their time if they weren’t on social media. They challenge each other to track the screen time and report back after revealing their horrific time stats. 

What small thing can you do to limit your screen time throughout the day?
