On this episode we speak with Hollie about infertility. Hear her talk about the hurt and loss, the hope on the other side and how "dirt and therapy" saved her life. We were honored that she shared about such a difficult subject and it's our hope this reaches others needing support and gives more information to supporters. We all need each other.

"Your trauma is valid.
Even if other people have experienced “worse.”
Even if someone else who went through the same experience doesn’t feel debilitated by it.
Even if it “could have been avoided.”
Even if it happened a long time ago.
Even if no one knows.
Your trauma is real and valid and you deserve a space to talk about it.
It isn’t desperate or pathetic or attention-seeking.
It’s inconceivably brave.
And regardless of the magnitude of your struggle, you’re allowed to take care of yourself by processing and unloading some of the pain you carry.
Your pain matters.
Your experience matters.
And your healing matters.
Nothing and no one can take that away." - Daniell Koepke
Life has majorly shifted for most of us right now. Kathryn and Chelsea talk about what this week has been like, offer a fun #ronameme contest and chat about whats been helpful and encouraging in the midst of such major shifts due to COVID-19. This is hard stuff you guys and we're all in it together.
There's laughs, there's fun, there's the raw emotion, there's hopeful resources. Let's be friends and get as close as we can while staying at home together.

In today's episode we speak with Brandy about boundaries. Think boundaries is just a buzz word or code for punishment? Not sure where to even begin or maybe you have boundaries that keep getting breeched? We invite you to listen as we discuss boundaries in regards to our relationships with others but also ourselves. Boundaries are loving. Let's learn together how to do this better.
