EP 69 - Bianca Juarez Olthoff: Overcoming the Odds, Ignoring the Labels and Stepparenting with Hope
Have you ever had big plans for your life only to find out that God had other ones? This week's guest knows that space of confusion-turned-calling well and what it's like to have a holy nudge that just. won't. quit! Bianca Juarez Olthoff is a popular speaker, teacher, preacher, church-planter and author. She's also a wife, proud stepmom and a brand new member of the Access More family (Yay!), with her podcast, We're Going There

This week Paula sits down with Bianca for a candid conversation about how she overcame the odds of childhood illiteracy, ignored the labels of growing up in the LA ghetto, and exchanged her best laid plans for God's ultimate call on her life, which also included becoming a stepmom (You don't want to miss what she's learned from the Bible about being a stepparent. It's so good!). 

If you're looking to step outside the expectations of others, find fulfillment despite things not going your way, or just feel rooted in the midst of a chaotic season of life... this episode and the wisdom Bianca is dropping marks the spot!

These real, honest conversations will leave you encouraged, empowered (with takeaways!) and entertained.

Paula will be joined each week by friends--some old, some new--who can talk about purpose, calling, fear, branching out and the risks of pursuing dreams from their own perspective. Guests include: Candace Cameron Bure, ESPN's Maria Taylor, Chris Tomlin, Michael Strahan, Lauren Daigle, Sadie Robertson, Kathie Lee Gifford, Jenna Bush and many more!

Most recently, she spent 9 years at ABC News, during which she was a co-anchor of 'Good Morning America' weekend edition, co-host of 'The View' and host of the 'Journeys Of Faith' podcast. While at the network, Faris reported on everything from politics, news and entertainment to sports and faith, interviewing the likes of Hillary Clinton, Sean Spicer, Joe Biden, Tiger Woods, Reece Witherspoon, to the casts of "Star Wars" and "Avengers".

Faris graduated from Cedarville University ('97). She is a wife, mom, and dedicated follower of Jesus who bases her life and podcast on the foundational principals of Christianity, to love God and love people. She and her husband John reside in South Carolina with their three children.
