EP 70 - Jeannie Cunnion: Letting Go of Your Plans, Carrying One Another and Waffle House
This week's episode comes with an extra heaping of heart and humor because Paula is sitting down with her "soul sister from another mister" - celebrated author and speaker Jeannie Cunnion. Jeannie is also a wife, mother to five boys and former social worker.

Jeannie traces her journey from adoption social worker - a job she absolutely LOVED - to something that she says made NO sense at all - becoming a writer. Learn how she heard the call, found alignment and stepped into the middle of an "only God" story. As Jeannie tells Paula, "I couldn't have forced this to happen on my best day." Paula and Jeannie also discuss how important it is to have people who can carry you - and your family - through different seasons of life. They open up about what that's looked like for their own friendship, including how they've been able to say hard things, trust each other's wisdom and love each other well. These two also have a shared affinity for Waffle House and old time Pentecostal church songs... so you best believe there will be some singing on the episode!
