So encouraging!!! Emily is so real with the challenges of life. Thanks
I listen to this podcast on the way to work and I love how Emily is so down to earth and she just makes you feel like youâre sitting down having a conversation with her and the guests. I especially love the sister episodes, so funny! Thank you for making this postcast, I definitely am not running away from home. ðâºï¸
I am completely hooked!! Every time I listen, I feel like I've been right there in the room with Emily and whoever her guest is! Such authenticity and genuine joy! While the rest of the world is binge watching TV shows, I have become a Struggle Well Project binge listener. Thank you so much!!
We are ALL struggling, because being a mom is HARD! Emily encourages me to struggle well and not be grumpy ð. She is very real and relatable. I look forward to all her shows.
I have fallen in love with this podcast over the last couple of months and cannot stop listening to it!I love how Emily allows moms to talk openly about the areas that they are just struggling to deal with life in! I was a person who was sure that motherhood would fulfill everything I ever needed in my life and when I became a mom as much as I loved my child I found out motherhood was A LOT different than what I expected and I really donât love it. But I have also discovered that ITS OK! And Iâm honestly grateful for feeling like I finally belong somewhere! Thanks Emily!!
I love how the episodes are grouped around a monthly theme in 2019! Emily is funny and down to earth. I always finish feeling encouraged.
Episode 170 absolutely had me laughing so hard! It was the first Problem Solved I listened to and I canât wait to hear more. I live the SWP and how it is so real!
I think Emily offers up a unique voice in the Christian podcast world. She's funny, honest, and a great interviewer. Hands down, the Problem Solved and Struggling Sister episodes are my favorite. This is not a scripture or teaching centered podcast, but it is good fun and honest conversation. Critiques: Like many Christian woman podcasts, this one is saturated with enneagram. Hardly an episode goes by that it doesn't come up. Also, I really, REALLY dislike the spacing of the ads. There are TOO MANY breaks in the flow for them. Please, Emily, if you read this, start grouping your ads together into longer, less frequent chunks.
100% my favorite podcast. There is something to pull from every episode â¤ï¸
I am so grateful for Emily, for the love and energy she pours into this podcast and community. Every week I am eager to listen and always blessed by what I hear. A favorite part of the show is when Emily prays at the end. The prayers are genuine and simple and have taught me a lot about how to pray. SWP and Struggling Sisters are my favorite pods!! And now I canât stop calling podcasts pods.
I love The Struggle Well Project for itâs real and approachable content. Emily has an interview style that brings out vulnerability with a splash of humor to make her content relatable to women of God who donât always have it all together but are seeking growth in the Lord and as a wife, mom, friend, sister, and woman! My favorite are her Problem Solved episodes with Rebecca. Great podcast and highly recommend to those who struggle but want to grow and be encouraged.
For Christmas, Iâm gifting all my favorite podcasts a 5 star review! Thank you for having a great podcast and keeping me company all year! Keep up the good work! ð
There comes a point every Monday morning when I'm moving slowly, starting the day's chores and trying to get into the rhythm of a new week - and then I realize, "there's a new Struggle Well Project podcast today!" and it lifts my spirits. This podcast is encouraging, funny, and challenges me to grow as a mom and Christ-follower. Love it so much!
Being a mom, wife, woman or just human is just not the most spectacular ideal place we wish it was sometimes. Em has created the perfect safe zone to listen in on all of the ponders Iâve got no one else to converse with about them. She also brings great tidbits from guests like helpful books, resources or encouraging music to keep me going when I just don't feel like my struggling is being done well haha.
I am a Stay At Home Momma to a toddler and baby so our days are busy but somewhat isolating. I have loved listening to this podcast for the laughter, learning, and mostly the connectedness. Emily is authentic and a breath of fresh air!
Wow, what wonderful timing for me to stumble upon this podcast. I feel like Iâve really been struggling with being a mom lately and just living with purpose, and itâs so wonderful to know Iâm not the only one! Along with the spiritual encouragement, this podcast is such an uplifted. Iâm going to be binge-listening to this for a while!
I listen to Emily on my drive to and from work nearly every time! I love her witty humor mixed with her love for the Lord! Iâm always encouraged, and often re-listen to my favorite episodes! Emily is a gem, and I highly suggest her podcast!
Love love love listening to this podcast!! I absolutely look forward to the âproblem solvedâ episode each month! Would love to hear more of those! Thanks for opening my ears and eyes to so many things! I also enjoy the lightening round! Continue the good work!!
I happened upon this podcast as it debuted a few years ago when my son was first diagnosed with autism and we began driving him to a special needs school an hour and a half away. Now that he is in public school, our long drives are over but I still tune in every week for this sweet encouragement. Thank you, Emily Thomas, for putting your heart into this blessing and for being a beacon of light when I was wading through the darkness.
Emily, Thank you so, so much for what you do! The daily nap time battle (do I sleep or do I clean) is a little easier on Mondays because I know I can listen while I clean!
I LOVE Emilyâs interviews and have been so shaped and formed by her podcast over the years. I love how funny she is and her questions bring some great lessons from her guests.
Loved this episode and the encouragement in it!
I love this podcast. Emily's humor keeps me laughing. Problem solved episodes are hilarious.
5 stars for you and the show no stars for Daily Harvest! Since I enjoy your show so so much I try to do what I can to support your sponsors and use the codes you provide in hopes this will trickle over to you. I thought I would give daily harvest a try. Long story short one of the flavors I selected (lemon matcha) Was repulsive! As a working mom with Littles I had taken the smoothie as my breakfast on a work day and essentially ended up with no breakfast! I couldnât stomach the drink. It bothered me so much I took the time to reach out to daily harvest customer service just asking if they might replace the two smoothies(Because I still had another one of this flavor in my refrigerator)âI didnât think that was too much to ask seeing as though it had put a real damper on my work morning and left me without breakfast?! They essentially said to bad so sad and that there was nothing that they were willing to do. Wow really!? I found that pretty disappointing. I wanted to pass along my bad experience because I think they deserve to be reconsidered as a sponsor. I certainly will not give them any other business and Iâve been trying to spread the word on how lousy they handled a simple customer service request. It bothered me enough to reach out to them and your show.
I LOVE this podcast. I cannot wait to listen to it the second it releases. Emily is so genuine + truly loves using this podcast to enrich the listeners lives while bringing glory to God. Download it + listen to it now!
I was looking for podcasts recently to listen to on my drive to work. This was one of the many recommended to me, and this was the one I landed on after checking out a number of others. Itâs the one I canât go by a week without listening to. I donât wanna miss any episodes. The topics and conversations on this podcast are so real and deep and genuine and life-giving and Christ-centered. They always point me to Jesus; the best place to be! I also absolutely LOVE when Emily prays at the end of a podcast. More than once, Iâve gone back and listened to the prayer again because the words she prays are just so lovely and timely and just what I needed to hear at the time. This podcast ministers to my heart and spirit in such beautiful ways! And I know it can do the same for you too. Oh also, Emily is ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS! And it seems to come so naturally to her. Such an uplifting podcast that I would 200% recommend to anyone looking for a worthwhile, uplifting, applicable-to-daily-life and faith-filled podcast. And one more thing: I LOVE the motto of struggling well. Since thatâs exactly what weâre all doing in this life, and how weâre reminded itâs okay to embrace that. And also how she asks at the end how the listeners are going to âstruggle wellâ that week, and she always has great ideas!
Emily is so real and down to earth. I love listening to her Chad with guests each week whether I am in the car or on a run. Thank you for the weekly doses of encouragement! I need it.
On the hardest days as a new mom I am so encouraged by this podcast. To know Iâm not alone in struggling and the have the help pull me back in is just what I need. My motto has become that Iâm just trying to struggle well.
I donât know how I found SWP... but THIS is such a sweet gift. I liked the first few episodes I heard and then decided to listen to more ((thx to those recaps))... and then the more I heard the MORE I loved. There arenât words to explain the blessing this is to me. If only I could go back and give it to new-mom me about 13 years ago! Thanks and keep up the refreshingly authentic work!
Thank you Emily for asking all the questions I would ask, for making me laugh regularly, for comforting me in my struggles and for pushing me to grow deeper in my relationship with The Lord. My friends are probably tired of hearing about you bc most of my conversations contain, â...on this podcast I listen to, The Struggle Well Project...â at least once. Thanks for keeping me company while I do chores.
I seriously love this podcast! I think you and the Lord are both working out my road rage sin - whew!! I am in my car A LOT and my rage has calmed down quite a bit as long as I tune in and listen to this podcast. I laugh, and learn as I drive and I love it! Thank you Emily!
Thereâs no time for podcasts in my hectic morning life. But I love this podcast and will put in my earbuds and let the kids listen to their own thing in the car. Emily provides a lot of views from a lot of God loving women and itâs food for my soul. Thank you!
After experiencing a postpartum, then 2 years later experiencing a miscarriage... I felt like my faith and joy were LOW. As a believer, itâs been a shakey time in my faith. âBible studiesâ were not helpful asI had a tough time trusting âleadersâ in the church establishments. Listening to other moms who GET me and GET motherhood has encouraged me and has restored some renewed hope. I love Emilyâs questions and topics to her guest. As a full Time stay at home mom, formerly full time working professional, transitioning to WAHM life was hard. These podcasts have been a refreshing part of my day.
At first, I shied away from this podcast because, well, I was all about the âstruggleâ part but not so much about the âmomâ part. Then, I heard Emily as a guest on another podcast and I was hooked. Such genuine love, compassion, heart and interest for and in others and an undeniable desire to help ANY woman (mommas and not, alike) struggle well. She knows the struggle is real for us ALL! Plus, not to be creepy, but her voice is my favorite and literally soothes my frazzled nerves. Haha. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸
This podcast is an amazing mix of funny, inspiring and real. It is the podcast version old pair of jeans.
This podcast. I was asked the other day what I couldn't stop talking about and I answered this podcast. Thanks for all your hard effort in equipping and challenging me to struggle well. Prior to this podcast I felt like I either excelled at what I was doing or failed. The thought of struggling well in motherhood has helped me change my mental picture of how I live as a mom.
The Struggle Well podcast is my absolute favorite. I love Emilyâs interview style, her sharp sense of humor, and the way that she always points to Christ. So good!
This was the first podcast I ever listened to, and after I went back and listened to every one from beginning to present, I felt like Iâd found a kindred spirit. I ventured out and listened to other podcasts and once I got a taste of each, I came back to Emilyâs because it felt the most like home. As one that has suffered psychological abuse and anxiety, I could truly relate to her story and subject matter. Thank you for providing a place of healing for gals like me...a place to laugh and a place to be reminded of Jesusâ never ending love and grace. Canât wait for the next episode!
I have been listening to this podcast for a couple weeks now and I am obsessed! I put it on during my commute or at the gym and I brim from ear to ear just at the start. Emilyâs sense of humor is so genuine, authentic, and sure to bring a laugh! The interview and topics are thought-provoking and just plain helpful to anyone trying to live life and love Jesus well. Inspiration, goofy, entertaining, encouraging....and an absolute must for long commutes!!!
This podcast is literally life changing. So grateful that God can use such a platform to speak to my heart!!!
Emily is basically what I wanna be when I grow up. Sheâs funny, witty, and wise. Even if I have no idea who the guest is on the show, I always enjoy listening to SWP, and I ALWAYS learn something. (And so far, I havenât run away from home which is the podcast goal... so bravo, Em!) ð
Emily is funny and down to Earth...I listen each week while I am driving, dusting, or doing dishes and always come away with fresh perspective, ideas, and tools! My mind and priorities back focused on what is eternal....all communicated as if I am sitting down having coffee with my best friend. Love it!!
I donât know how to record it and listen to your podcast simultaneously, but my 17-month-old son sings along to your intro song and itâs so sweet! Emily, Iâve enjoyed your podcast so much since finding it a month or two ago that I have recently downloaded almost every episode to my phone so I can listen wherever I am. Thanks for being an encouraging light and making me giggle out loud to myself. âTanya
Iâm addicted to crime podcasts, itâs a problem. To uplift my spirit though Iâve undertakentrying to listen to all the Struggling Well podcasts from the beginning. Iâve learned, laughed and reignited my drive to demonstrate a Godlylife for my precious littles. I wantto be friends with all of these ladies!
This is one of my favorite podcasts. I enjoy Emily and her honesty and perspective. I find myself encouraged and laughing every episode. I am a fellow "LOL" disliker and I also identify with Emily's parenting style. Being a mom of 2 littles she gives me hope I can get through this difficult time get to a different kind of difficult time (haha). Also do yourself a favor and follow her on instagram as well!
I have loved this podcast and look forward to every weeks episode. It is encouraging to me and refreshed me each week! I feel like Iâm having coffee with people I wish I could meet! Thank you Emily for being so authentic and Jesus focused and encouraging us women out there to follow Jesus more closely.
This podcast has been my favorite as I work from home sewing kids clothing. I always felt like the only one struggling and wanting to run away from my kids. I felt like a bad Mom. But Emily Thomas is helping me to understand I am not alone on this struggle. I am learning to lean on to Godâs grace and to understand that He is enough even when I feel like crap.
I would give this a billion stars if I could. Best podcast and best host Iâve ever heard. Iâve been listening for years and each episode is wonderful. Emily has a down to earth way of encouraging and inspiring Hope. And she is just so freakin funny!!!
Emily Thomas is gifted in balancing really tough subjects with humor, empathy and practical take aways. I always feel encouraged, lifted up and inspired to be better and do better for myself and my family. This podcast is my fuel!!!Keep up this important work Emily!! You are a blessing to me.
I recently found this podcast and binge listened like 10 episodes. Absolutely on point for my life right now and just what I needed to hear. Keep it up. Iâm subscribed.
