  1. Hi Monica. I just listened to your podcast on failure and success. Thank you so much for this podcast. I appreciate it very much. We hear often about those who have succeeded, but we don't really talk about how to cope when we fail, and when we make dumb choices. So this was refreshing and uplifting. My daughter told me about your podcasts, and I have enjoyed each one. I really appreciate your honesty. It's not easy to express some of the failures we experience, so thank you very much for having courage to share all you do. Also, I thought you should know that I haven't used your Audible link because I'm a long-time user already. Thank you again for your podcasts!

    1. Thank you SO much, Anne! It's wonderful hearing such good feedback. I appreciate you taking the time to write that up for me!

  2. Hi Monica! I just wanted to say that I really love listening to your podcasts. The people you talk to all have such amazing stories of things they have overcome & how they have grown from those experiences. I also think that you have a great way with words & asking just the right questions to help people share their stories. I have struggled with infertility the last 3 1/2 years & hearing your podcast & stories of many others that have also struggled with infertility or other trials has really helped me! So than you for doing what you do!

  3. Monica, thank you so much for doing this podcast! This has been an immense help to me as a twentysomething male chemical engineer trying to figure out my own struggles with perfectionism. This is definitely a great resource for so many people, and I have learned so many insights from you and the people you interview.

    If you haven't already, you might want to consider asking Alisa Goodwin Snell to interview. She's been featured about 5 or 6 times on the Mormon Channel Daily podcast and, having struggled herself with marriage, has a lot of wisdom to share about overcoming perfectionism during the dating process and within marriage. I've found a lot of wisdom in her remarks, and I think interviewing her would make a great episode for both single and married listeners. (See

    Thanks so much, and keep it up!
