Throughout our chat, Sarah is candid and encouraging. She shares openly about the abortion she had at 16 and the healing she’s experienced from bravely speaking out against the shame of past sin and accepting God’s grace as all-sufficient.
What we chat about:
* How Sarah learned to love and forgive her alcoholic mother* Practical advice for daughters who are hurting from parental woundings and hope for parents who have failed* The verbal and mental abuse that Sarah endured as a teenager* Honoring Sarah’s mom’s story by including her journal entries in the book* Sarah’s path to healing and the many ways God wooed her heart * The story behind Sarah’s abortion at 16-years-old* Creating a new legacy for your family by bravely working through the places of sin and shame in your life* Wounds from your parents are valid things to grieve

On August 15, 2019, we did the wildest thing…we recorded a LIVE episode at The Grove (an outdoor mall here in LA)!! I was SO nervous leading up to it.

For a variety of reasons, childhood anxiety rates are soaring, especially among girls. My guest Sissy Goff is here to share some of her insights on how to recognize worry and anxiety in your daughter and empower her to overcome.
We talk about tools we can use to help us understand why our brains are often working against us in times of anxiety and grounding techniques to slow and stop the emotional spiral that often ensues.
We always want her to know she's stronger than her worries and that she has a voice to talk back to the worry. A lot of people who work with kids call it the worry monster because that separates it out from her voice. We don't want her to think it's the truth, which is what kids are going to think when they have voices in their heads telling them things.
This is a short, hope-filled bonus episode that just scratches the surface on all that we can learn about equipping our kids to work through anxiety. For more encouragement, follow Sissy and her team at https://www.raisingboysandgirls.com and watch for her book Raising Worry-Free Girls coming out September 17.
What we chat about:
* 1 in 4 kids are dealing with anxiety of some kind and girls are twice as likely to feel it* Anxiety is hard to recognize in kids. Sometimes it comes out as anger or meltdowns and other times it’s deeply buried* People whose personalities lean toward Type A tend to have baseline anxiety at all times. If your child’s personality leans that direction, it’s important to give them tools to deal with it* Anxiety is always an overestimation of the problem and an underestimation of ourselves* Techniques to help a child with anxiety calm down and redirect blood flow to their prefrontal cortex* Integrating our faith as we teach our kids to fight back against fear and worry
