Outside of my mother, Ashley Ingram is the first person to return to the podcast.  You may remember her from Episode 014.  At that time she had just won the title Ms. US World and me knowing nothing really of pageants and her being local I invited her on the podcast.  

A year later and Ashley has just won the title Ms World 2019 and she has also gotten engaged... we have a bit of fun with that.

This!  This!  Hey you crazy kids... grab a drink, smoke 'em if you got 'em and let me introduce you to Comedian D.J. Lewis!  

Warning!  If you are easily offended, you are in for a treat.

We sat on the patio of Back Stage Bar, which is part of The Comedy Catch in Chattanooga, TN. Not only did we laugh, we also discuss some very serious topics and talk to random people that just walk by and want to know what we are doing and who we are.

He even had a few comedian friends join us.

In this episode, we sit down with a high school friend named Paige Lebaron Peeples. Three and a half years ago, after years of struggling with opioid addiction, Paige entered a program called Celebrate Recovery

 

Paige has an amazing story and I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed my time talking with her.

What is going on you beautiful people?

Today we sit down in the home of Skye Miu Steppe.  Skye has a rare genetic disease called Fibrous Dysplasia. In this episode, she shares her lifelong journey of living with the disease and how that led her to become an advocate for other rare childhood diseases as well. 

Prior to meeting Skye, I had no idea of just how prevalent things like this was. She first reached out to me because her mom had been on my podcast and Skye was interested in starting her own podcast. I asked her what she wanted her podcast to be about and she said rare childhood disease. That's when she started telling me her story. I suggested that we should do a podcast about it and that way she could get an idea on how to do this.  A few days later I learn that a family member had a child suffering from a rare skin disease and they had asked that I do a podcast on it. Weird, huh? Coincidence, huh? Or, maybe, just maybe, all things are spiritual.

If you would like to learn more about Fibrous Dysplasia, rare childhood disease and how you can get involved in raising awareness, go visit Skye's website "FD Warriors".  You can also find her organization on the following social media platforms.

Hey, you beautiful people!

 

Today we sit down with a dear friend of mine Lynda Salisbury. What do we talk about? Miscarriage, a term she insists I say aloud, her own personal struggles, The Book "The Art of T'shuva", her project "The Blessing Fence" (follow The Blessing Fence on Facebook and do something similar) which was featured on Good Morning America (you can see that video here) and also her contribution to Dr. Sarah Philpot's book Loved Baby (find out more about that here). You can also listen to my conversation with Dr. Sarah Philpot on Episode 012 - Dr. Sarah Philpott, author of Loved Baby: 31 Devotions Helping You Grieve and Cherish Your Child after Pregnancy Loss

I wish I could say that this was a definitive message, it's not, with every answer came even more questions. The paradox, the contradictions, the allegory, and metaphor... I may be more perplexed than when I started.

Here is the YouTube version:
