Welcome to the first episode of my Behind Closed Doors: Real Conversations with Real Friends series! This will be a series of conversations with MY people! My friends and family who pour life into me day in and day out. I wanted to take a step away from the interview style for a bit to show you a peek into my life. The conversations that you’ll hear are ones that we have regularly on my couch (or on theirs) with coffee in hand! 

This first episode is with my dear friend, Shayna. If you ever meet Shayna, you’re just a lucky person. I truly don’t know anyone who is more kind, gentle and thoughtful and who genuinely just wants the best for everyone in her life. She is one of the mothers that I look up to the most in my life.

On today’s conversation, we are talking about a family-day out that resulted in the loss of her finger and the potential loss of another in the thick of 2020. Shayna shares how the healing process and the grief have affected her life and relationship with Jesus. We are also talking about slowing down in life and in motherhood and why she admires the Swedish lifestyle so much that she began implementing it into her own life.

She is one of my very dear friends and I know you will love her as much as I do.

If you enjoy this episode, be sure to listen in to episodes 26, 39 and 66.
