How Self-Improvement Starts with Self-LOVE || with Andi Veenker

Wednesday, April 18, 2018


“The second you start doing something, you change your state.”

Andi Veenker is a fitness wizard and self-help fanatic.  But here's the best thing about her--she preaches that nothing will fix you (no book, no weight on the scale, no achievement, no nothing) UNTIL you love yourself first.  And in order to find that self-love, you need to do something.  (Does that sound familiar?)

Andi is on the show to share how she learned to face depression head on by doing something about it as early on as possible (in contrast to her first round with postpartum depression).  She teaches us how filling your life with daily small-to-great courageous acts will empower you to face those mental demons and create something spectacular with your life.

JOY--how you can have it, and now

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

"Joy [is] a spiritual way of engaging with the world that's connected to practicing gratitude."
~Brene Brown

If you've been working on happiness, get ready to up-level it to JOY.  

Joy is different than happiness. It's deeper and more eternal in nature and effect.  It's earned through opposition. It's chosen and cultivated.  And when the going REALLY gets tough, the good news is that "joy" will be there for us.

In this episode, we go deep in discussing why joy is different and longer lasting than happiness, and how we can choose it by focusing on:

1) Keeping Perspective
2) Being Present
3) Maintaining a Practice of Gratitude

Discovering Your Worth Through Music || with Paul Cardall, Kenz Hall, and Charley Jenkins

Wednesday, April 4, 2018


"We need to create something for someone else that they might not be able to create themselves."     
~Charley Jenkins                        

Surely, we can all agree that music has defined our lives from time to time--but what about save our lives?

That's exactly what the Worth of Souls project and album is trying to do.  Paul Cardall and a troop of incredible artists collaborated to create a movement designed to save people who are at the brink of complete despair, to pull them back from depression, doubt, anxiety, negativity, and worthlessness.  

Paul and two of his artists--Kenz Hall and Charley Jenkins--joined the podcast today to talk about the project and why they're passionate about it, the mission behind their songs, and how music has the unique ability to change--and even rescue--lives by reminding us all of our eternal value.
