Does life really have to be so “hard?” Does it always have to be a struggle? It seems in my own personal and professional life I have become really good at making things hard. I have always been hard on myself. I have always demanded perfectionism of myself and when I don’t live up to my own expectations I beat myself up mentally and yes sometimes even physically. Damn, that’s a hard way to live life, no pun intended. This podcast will show us a new possibility of looking at life. It doesn't always have to be hard and a struggle. Sometimes we just forget to have fun and laugh.

Her best days are spent in a cuddle pile with a little boy and three semi-naughty canines while her soulmate is nearby tinkering in his garage. Born and raised in Northern Colorado, she is closest to our Lord when sitting on a mountain beside a river with a cup of coffee in one hand and a book in the other.
