#172 How to Get Unstuck with Denisha Ferguson
Show Notes

If there's one thing I know about mom leaders, it's that we often get stuck in the middle of going after a big goal or building a big dream.

You'll be moving right along at a decent pace, and then you'll come across a barrier of some sort that seems to push you a few steps back.

I'm personally chipping away at a significant goal this month, and I've hit my first barrier - illness.

My family and I were convinced I had COVID, but thankfully that test came back negative (but I'm still not feeling well at all - you'll hear it as soon as you press play on this episode).

So, my forward movement and self-imposed deadlines have all come to a screeching halt as I make room for my recovery - I'm stuck.

But what about those barriers that are not so temporary? Things like:

  • Caring for a special needs child.
  • Caretaking for a parent.
  • Being a homeschool parent.
  • Raising kids while raising a business
  • Systemic biases against gender and race.

The list is probably endless.

Here's the good news: barriers can be overcome, and God has a way of turning them into stepping stones instead of brick walls.

In this episode, I'm talking with mom, author, and creator Denisha Ferguson as she shares her wisdom on how we as mom leaders can push through the barriers that try to keep us from realizing the God-sized dreams in our hearts.

What you'll hear:

  • Denisha's tip for me regarding my rest practices - she's the second person to say this to me in a week's time!
  • We discuss some of the real-life barriers that try to slow down our forward movement.
  • Strategies to overcome those barriers.
  • The undeniable blessing of God being with us and how He isn't subject - at all - to man-made barriers.
