Ep 89 - Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt: A Whirlwind Romance, Sibling Superpowers and Carving Out Your Own Identity
When life gets hard, there's nothing quite like the simple, steadying comfort of having a hand to hold to help you feel strong and brave. Best-selling author, daughter, sister, wife, mother, step-mom and all-around lovely human, Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt, joins Paula for a conversation about the importance of these close-knit relationships, growing a family with her beloved husband, actor Chris Pratt, and the real-life sisterly bond that inspired her new children's book, "Good Night, Sister" (Releasing February 7). Despite having a famous father, mother and husband, Katherine has learned to carve out an identity all her own. Hear how being a "junior mom" to all her siblings helped prepare her for the calling of motherhood, find out the surprising place she turned to for additional support when she mid-pandemic became a new mom and learn how her very famous parents prepared her for this season of parenting in the limelight.

Ep 87 - John Ruhlin: Gratitude, Growth and Radical Generosity
If you're looking to end your year on a high note, love a good transformation story or want to feel inspired by the potential that awaits you in 2023, this episode marks the spot! 

Today, John Ruhlin is a successful founder, CEO, author and sought-after speaker, but a few short decades ago he was just a farm boy from Ohio. His humble beginnings would take a turn as he began to earn jaw-dropping monthly checks as the greatest seller in Cutco's 68-year history - with no prior sales experience. ZERO. His secret sauce? Gift giving! In this episode John breaks down the power of radical generosity, why gratitude is your competitive advantage, how he learned to normalize tension in pursuit of his calling and why he's certain "the suck" of life often leads us to our significance. In short - don't sleep on this conversation. John's uncommon wisdom and unforgettable life story is one you've just got to hear!

Ep 86 - Judah Smith: Resentment, Rest and Celebrity Pastors
What happens when you resent what you once loved? Where do you go next? Is that a sign to try something new? If these questions hit home, turn this one up because this week's guest has been there and back and wants you to know you're far from alone. 

In this episode Paula sits down with the Lead Pastor of Churchome, Judah Smith, for a raw conversation that will encourage you to stop ignoring your annoyances, know your "why" and find your margin again. Born to a long line of ministers (we're talking 7 generations) -Judah tells Paula about what it was like to lose his dad at an early age, and how the loss of his hero took a toll on his calling. Also, widely known as the pastor who baptized Justin Beiber, Judah offers his hot take on the phenomenon of "celebrity pastors," the surprising backstory of his friendship with Justin that took place well before he was a household name, and why he's convinced wisdom and age don't always go hand in hand.
