Jackie shares her story of loss and letting all the plates hit the floor. Letting herself grieve and seeing her family transform in such a painful time. Not only that but, we also talk about something most of us struggle with as women. Making friends with other women and letting them into our homes and our hearts. I love what Jackie said, "You have to become the friend you want to have. So you love big, before you know they're going to love you back".
In this episode we talk about picky eaters, what we need to do to set our selves up for meal time success and how we can approach game time snacks in a healthier way. Because trust me, your kid is no Dak Prescott at the age of 5.. he hasn't sweated out enough electrolytes to need a 64oz gatorade. We also talk about the importance of skin care and Sally's experience with stage 1 skin cancer.

Gratitude changed Robin's life when going through invitro. She was struggling and just feeling miserable after two failed invitros and an IUI. Today Robin shares how she started becoming grateful for everything because she started seeing God everywhere. She is super encouraging and she has walked with so many friends going through infertility calling herself the infertility celebrator. I really love her heart and her wisdom.
(We mentioned Nikki, a past guest who's been on the show, you can find her episode and her journey with infertility on the podcast as well)
Embryo adoption was something Merritt feels really passionate about sharing and lucky for her I have been super curious about what exactly embryo adoption was and how it works. Merritt journeyed through a long period of singleness before meeting her husband and then found (like most of us) that marriage can be rough trying to bring two people together who have different "ways" of doing things and have been living on their own for so long.
