I’m On Leah Darrow’s “Do Something Beautiful” Podcast!


Happy Monday! Happy Summer! Happy National Eat Your Veggies Day! (haha – yes, that’s a thing!)

I am just flying on cloud nine this morning: I am a new aunt to TWIN BOYS! (God is good!) I got new workout clothes. Had the best weekend with my friends. Things are going swimmingly in the dating department!


(Drumroll please…)

I’m on Leah Darrow’s podcast, Do Something Beautiful!!!!

I am over the moon to share the episode with you guys. We had such an interesting conversation about freedom in Christ, spiritual warfare, recovery, the wounds that every one of us carry, Leah’s story — it is such a good listen. So please check it out!

I have long admired Leah! She is truly beautiful, inside and out! She’s a former model and contestant on America’s Next Top Model, and she uses her powerful story to inspire women all over the world. She’s a mom of four adorable kids, an international speaker, podcast host (to one of the top Christian podcasts), and author! I read her book, The Other Side of Beauty — and let me tell ya — it’s a must read for women and girls.

And over the winter, I got to meet up with Leah at the SEEK 2019 conference in Indianapolis. She gave such an impactful speech and is just an incredibly inspiring woman.

So with that — I invite you head over to Leah’s podcast and give it a listen!

And ALSO! I almost forgot! We’re hosting a giveaway of my book, Bloom, over on her Instagram ((@leah.darrow)) — so be sure to check that out too!!

So thank you, Leah, for having me on your podcast! Keep shining your light and inspiring the world to do something beautiful with their lives!!

    1. Thank you so much Ian for listening! Youโ€™re so right! God loves to bless us! Hugs and love xox


    So EveryOne, just who Defines Perfect for You ๐Ÿค” ?…is it SomeOne who Defines Your Perfect as:

    โ—‡ Financial Earnings ๐Ÿค” ?
    โ™ก Romantic Relationship ๐Ÿค” ?
    โ™ค You ๐Ÿค” ?

    …never easy, Self Examination, I Know; today I Rediscovered that The Only Financial Satisfaction and Love I NEED!!! is in Solitude and Isolation Waiting for The Lady who Feels The Same Way as We Produce Our Future in Our Awesome, Courageous Children ALL…F.E.A.R is Diamond Hard, Our Greatest Ally; this is F.E.A.R EveryOne:

    โ—‡ Friendly Emotive Alert Response
    โ™ง False Evidence Appearing Real
    โ™ก Firm Efficient Assertive ReAction

    …it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that FEAR!!! is Friendly EveryOne; like Former Friends Left Behind in The Guise of ‘Moving On’…



    โ—‡ As a Writer I Appreciate The Subtleties of Our Languages; for example when We ARE in DisAgreement Many Will CHOOSE!!! to Delete and Block while Others CHOOSE!!! to Remain in The Debate…it’s My View that Collaboration is NOT!!! about Agree; because there is NOTHING!!! to LEARN!!! from ‘Yes People’…it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that ‘Yes People’ ARE Comfortable to have in Our Personal Space; the Awake, Aware and Alert know that it’s ALL about Being WILLING!!! to Exit Our Comfort Zone For A While then Return for Rest, Reflection and Relaxation which is Very Good for Creative/Sporting/Business Practices and Personal Relationships…



    โ—‡ Our Answers ARE in Our Questions EveryOne; e.g. Teachers Ask Questions of Students for which The Teacher Already has an Answer inviting DEBATE!!!…a Rhetorical Question is a Command; an Implied Question has No Question Mark so Spot The Difference ๐Ÿค” ?



    I Have Recently Been Blocked and Had Many Comments Deleted by Loads of Ladies; now this doesn’t really bother me as it’s their issue not mine…so to ALL of You Reasonable Ladies I Have This to Say; please, Ladies, Stop Competing and ReActing Furiously…instead Save The Sisterhood by Reaching Out to Your Sisters; like SupaSoulSis Taz Thornton ๐ŸŽฏ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŽค does Very Effectively which (WITCH!!! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Š ) is Very Good for Creative/Sporting/Business Practices and Personal Relationships…so CHOOSE!!! Ladies “Are you a good witch or a bad witch ๐Ÿค” ?” Dorothy is a Very Good, Intelligent, Heartfelt, Courageous Witch who Eventually Gets Back Home to Kansas also Home of Superman/Clark who has a Mild Mannered Lady, Lois Lane ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค—



    โ—‡ Me:”I Hate You!!!”; You:”I Hate You too so We’re Even.”
    โ™ง You:”I Hate You!!!”; Me:”I Love You so We’re UnEven.”
    โ™ค I Suggest Consider This in The Context of ALL Your Myriad Relationships

    …it is Crystal Clear Clarity that Self Analysis is TOUGH!!! EveryOne; yet it’s Well Worth it ๐Ÿ˜€ …

  5. Hi Caralyn, Just finished listening to the podcast. Wow, firstly thank you for being so open always and sharing your story. Although I do not struggle with an eating disorder, I do struggle to be happy and content with my weight. I always feel that I would be happier if I were a few kilos lighter and that has been something I battle with since I was a teenager. When you said it is spiritual warfare, made me think hard on my dissatisfaction when I stand on the weighing scale. The Lord has been working in me but I am still very much a work in progress. I do know that HE is teaching me everyday and my experiences have taught me that I can find my true Joy only in Him.
    Thank you again for being an inspiration and sharing your testimony of Christ’s work in your life.

    1. Thank you so much for listening to the interview!! And thank you for sharing that – yes! There is JOY to be found in Him. And freedom and peace. And He is the ultimate deliverer ๐Ÿ™‚ praying for you, friend! Grateful for you! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’› Hugs and love xox

  6. This is a fantastic podcast – thank you for sharing! I especially liked what you said about the “God-sized hole in our life that only He can fill,” and how we waste so much time trying to fill it ourselves. We attribute so much value to things that are ultimately meaningless, when in reality, the only source of true fulfillment is Christ.

    – Katie

    1. Hi Katie! Oh my gosh thank you so much for listening!! Youโ€™re absolutely right – He is the only true source of fulfillment! Hope you have a beautiful day! Hugs and love xox

  7. Powerful podcast!!! I love that Leah mentioned the 54-day novena. I just did that in March-April of this year. Life changing! Itโ€™s so important talking about the triggers of addiction and protecting our recovery. Thank you once again for the many messages of Gods love and healing โค๏ธ

    1. Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for taking the time to listen! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Yeah! Leah’s mom is a prayer warrior!! Amen to that ๐Ÿ™‚ Really appreciate your feedback!! have a beautiful day! big hugs xo
