Welcome to the Rising For Women Podcast!

We believe the world will be changed for women when we change how we walk in it. Each week we're going to have hard conversations. We're going to explore new options, and we're going to have real straight talk because we have faith women can handle it.

Episode Sixteen

Relationship Crutches or "Misery stabilizers" (Terry Real)  are the things we use to soothe ourselves for a short period of time so we
can live with and/or avoid our unhappiness.  They allow us to escape the everyday upsets or disappointments in our relationships or lives so we don’t have to face reality. Tune in to hear what they are, how they show up, what they cost you, and how to know if you're avoiding or simply relaxing. Watch Now

Episode Fifteen

In this podcast we explore three common myths about love:
1. "My partner should love me no matter what"
2. "Great relationships are always hot, passionate, exciting and fun and have no conflict"
3.  "Your love will save me"
Listen in and discover what healthy true love really looks and feels like. Learn what it takes to find it, be okay without it, and how to keep it.

Episode Fourteen

Many of the dynamics that led up to the rioting at the capitol are the very same dynamics that get played out in homes, offices, and nations all over the world. This podcast discusses how enabling a bully emboldens them to escalate their bullying. Every time an individual, party, or government takes a short-term "keep the peace" stance, they send a message that the harmful behavior is okay. Healthy relationships require accountability, limits, consequences, and authentic repair. This is as true in your home as in offices, governments, nations, and our world.  Watch Now
