100: Celebrating 100 Episodes with Our Listeners

We are thrilled to be celebrating 100 episodes and even more excited to include several of our listeners in this episode!

In this conversation, Holly and I are taking a break from our Mental Health series this month to pause and celebrate. We can hardly believe we’re at episode 100, and we are so grateful to each of our listeners, our guests, and our team for helping us get here.

To celebrate, we are including clips from many of our listeners who sent in their thoughts about the show and how it’s impacted them.

Our Reflections on Reaching 100 Episodes

After hearing from our listeners, Holly and I spend some time discussing the feedback and our intentions for the podcast. Our goal for this podcast has been from the start:

“We discuss issues related to leading as a Christian woman, and we also interview other women who share their leadership journeys. Through this podcast, we offer encouragement, tools, and resources to help you live out your unique calling as a leader and lead with confidence.”

We are grateful that we’ve been able to do this and that we’ve had the blessing of being the hosts of this podcast.

Holly & I reflect on some of the blessings of the podcast to ourselves, including the opportunity to talk with our guests, the different perspectives we bring, and our friendship. We also chat about how the podcast got started and some of the seeds that were planted many years ago that laid the groundwork for this show.
