"Us grief can kind of harden us and make us curmudgeonly or i think it can just break us open and i hope that my heart is broken for the world than it ever was before because of what is happening in my own life. You know the work that you're doing. I'm going to ask a question that i hope doesn't come across as incentive. Here we go here we got. I think you can handle. I can tell the work that you're doing now. I mean it's because you lost her husband that has to feel a little bit of attention inside of you. A little bit of i mean even it makes me feel an emotional upset. Nece for you is my new friend like we're friends now. I'm loving this conversation. We're having and i feel like i'm we're asking you there been moments of like got. I don't wanna do this. Because i literally just my husband back in my husband was here. I wouldn't be doing this. But yet you also are walking alongside people so beautifully and so compassionately and so understanding at a level that most people can't how do you wrestle with that tension and maybe you don't have it. I don't want to project my attention to you. Feel badgen attention and that you must have you know i would trade it all i would trade it all to have him back with only gets me choked up and you'd think about it. I'm choked up you. I would trade it. All i would trade the speaking engagements and the book contract and the writing opportunity. I would trade it all in a moment to have his body in the bed beside me every night and yet that is not how god has ordained my life to be and i can fight that all the time or i can release myself to that and it is a fight. It is a fresher fight. And i think it will be until jesus comes again that i will long for his physical presence with me and yet i've gotta face the reality that he's not here and that god has still kept me here so there must be a reason that i'm here and part of my job is to figure out what god wants me to do. Now you know the path through suffering we like to think about. It's a path through suffering. But i think until jesus comes again sufferings just going to be with us and we hold the joy and sorrow of life in the same hand so i will always miss him and i'm gonna keep doing what i can to love god and love my neighbor and when i think about it make him proud. Do you dream about the future. Though i mean i know you said you don't have a five year plan. What does that is it different for you now. What does it feel like for you. Yeah i talked to my kids about it. A lot and i try to make really big dreams because maybe it's just my hedge against disappointment but i think it's also an attempt to not try to nail things down so i think you know what someday i want to have a big bucket list. I don't know what's going to be on it. I'm gonna make a bucket list again because for grieving person planning like that thinking about things that you might find delight in years later. It's really hard. It's hard for me to think about what that might look like so make a bucket list just in general enjoy new relationships. That's another big one. I'm young and you know so many folks have said like. Oh i'm sure you'll get married again. And i don't know what god has in store and so i'm just gonna say make new relationships because that could mean all kinds of beautiful things in my life so i think hoping big dreaming big without trying. Nail down the specifics has been really helpful. Way for me to lift my is above the horizon and start to dream again. There's might be too personal so if it is you have every reason. Tell me the semi business but believe you. Can you brought it up. I do know when robert in his book and you talk about you guys talk about all these things like what does it look like if i were to die like do i want you to remarried. I want you to move here. I want you to move back. Close my parents. And then you just said make new relationships. Was that something you guys talked about that particular of like. I want you to get remarried again. Did you guys have that conversation. And it's none of my business but you do whatever you want. We did. And i will tell you that. I was really hardcore with him which i feel badly because i was like you cannot get remarried quickly. You of set in all the standards. Because of course. I'm thinking like with me in the pictures still like your kids. There can never be another woman for you but me but yeah. He encouraged me to remarry particularly if our kids were young. He said they need a dad. And i didn't want to hear that because they didn't ever want to think about someone other than him but even in that. I'm so grateful because i've talked to so many grieving. Folks who feel hemmed in or caged their loved ones desires for them after death and rob released me in beautiful ways to live again. He didn't make proclamations about my career choices about my relationship choices about my kids education choices you know. He just said live fully and what a gift of love that has asked me. What a gift. And i'm sure that even when you think about those things you must feel so loved by him even in his not being here like today you're like even having this conversation. Measure like what a good guy that he would have that conversation with you. What i do ask people. I think are listening. And they're going to bring this up Okay i'm gonna go home my a date night and we're going to like hey let's lay out. All of our you know plans. And what i wanted to be what is just like if you could just give us a couple of just tidbits of advice of what does it look like for us to sit down with our spouses and have this conversation. Those very scary. Those very morbid. It feels very not necessary in some ways like they have other things to talk about. Like what are we doing here. Can you encourage just a little bit with how to do that. And what that looks like sure will in our current climate with the pandemic. It's easy to talk about death and dying because it's kind of all around us so you know hearing a tidbit from a radio show or reading. A headline can be an easy lead into say. Hey you know all the stuff around me is kind of making me nervous. Stu might if we talk about this together another easy way to do it would be to simply ask honey. Do we have a will one. Yes how many people haven't planned for their financial future so even that which is sort of devoid of emotion you know talking about relationships or burial or funerals all that kind of stuff. It's just real simple math talking about having a will. Could i make sure that. I have all the passwords to our financial accounts very basic things that amazingly a lot of couples haven't shared with each other starting. There is a really good way to start that conversation in a way that's non-confrontational can kind of open up like we talk about birds and bees open up to further conversation so you get your will organized you get your financial passwords organized and then later on you say. Hey we've done so well and getting. This organized might flee talk about funerals and stuff. I mean i know. It's kinda morbid. But i heard this girl on jamie ivy and she talked about you know and those kinds of things. I think we can start to do over time but a lot of time..

"Guys. I loved getting caught up with tara kabul. She's been a guest favourite for a long time. We hear people all the time telling us that every show. She's been on has been one of their favorites. And i know so. Many of you have started the bible recap because of barely and her gift of producing such great inspirational content. That pushes us. Towards god's word. I myself have been affected by that as well in fact in my book. Ub that came out last october. I tell a story about a random character and the old testament. And i remember that character that i had maybe read before but gloss over forever but when i was going through the bible recap terribly brought that alive for me and so i loved the work that she's doing and i'm so glad we got to catch up with her. I'm also really excited. Because i'll be heading to israel with her in october and i know some of you happy. Our listeners are coming with us because it's a trip just for happy hour listeners. And so erin. My husband and i are so excited about that. You guys another thing. I'm excited about is the fact that we're building a church in northern uganda. We're building a church building. Pastor jeffery has been there for a while but this church has been in existence for thirty four years. The karuma church. It was founded in nineteen eighty-seven when a group of refugees who were displaced from their home. They moved to karuma for safety. And this church has been sharing the gospel and doing ministry in their community for thirty four years without a building. And you and i we get to be a part of changing that we're hoping to raise fifteen thousand dollars by the end of the summer. So we want you to donate to this ministry with us today so we can help pastor. Jeffrey and his members have a building to do ministry throughout the week. Every donation count. So don't think is too small or too big. Give it all go to jamie. Ivy dot com slash. Build a church all of your funds raise. We'll go directly to this church in northern uganda. Your finds for solid building materials because already had the land and they have the workers but they mean materials and discipleship tools in their heart. Language is what we're doing. And i'm so excited about this france. Thanks for listening today show. We finished through. July isn't it. We've made it. This far today. Show was edited. By the team of pod. Shaper the show notes written by abacus sell. The music was developed for the show by matt graham produced by lindsey sweeney. I'm your host jamie ivy guys. I'll see you next time and have a happy hour. The friend be moving..

"Every morning. And then you're here last year. Yeah we talked a lot about reading the bible chronologically. Okay tell me what's happened in your last year. Mike not everything but just like tell me one big high one big high. I mean the bible recap has been. It's consumed my year. it has consumed it in a. Let's go. I wanna talk that if that's been your biggest concern. Let's go back last december. When did you plant. I totally am sitting on like i'm talking to a friend Patel everybody who you are. What what am i doing here. I don't even know what my job is. I'm like tell me about your life. it's catch up. i am in full time ministry ministry. it's discipleship ministry. We meet in homes and churches around the world. We do weekly curriculum. That's based on digging deep into scripture and one of the things that we realized after running dig for about ten years was we had people who've been in d. group for the whole time never read through the bible and so i was like what what is happening like. Why are people stalling out. And i knew my own story while i was stalling out why i had never read through until i did and their story was a lot like mine. Which was i am confused by it. Modern understand it and so last fall. We started planning for january first to launch a one year daily. Podcast where we help people read through the bible to help anticipate the questions. They're going to have the confusion. They're going to encounter so that i can help. These people read the bible with me now. I thought it's probably going to maybe be just a lot of e groupers but then enter jamie ivy and like i don't know a third a half. A large percentage of our audience is because people. Listen to your podcast. And they've never heard of me but they wanted to read the bible and so they jumped in with us and it has just been credits. Been the best thing i've ever done. I get questions about it all the time all the time because i mentioned it often because it's my life right and so it's the same way you would ask me about adoption. Or what are the things i talk about. Yeah and i also in my. I was writing a book this year. It's i wrote a little bit about something. I learned that waste times. You're writing you end up writing things reading learning listening to and so there's a random story in there about in the bible that i would have never known her but i was listening. I listened to the bible this year so But i remember when her last year and you said we're gonna do a podcast every day. And i was like I'm sorry did you just say you're releasing a show every single day of the year. Do you remember my like you were aghast. That was like it's not a problem. What are you talking about. I guess you're right. I was wrong. How has that been. It's been a it's been a lot. I really thought i was. I was either arrogant or naive or both in thinking. It would take me about an hour per episode to write it and then you know i didn't know how long it would take to record and your i mean to give you credit. The shows are not. There's your samper our right there. Eight minutes yeah. So but i really thought i read through the bible ten times now. I have stacks of notebooks. And i'm just going to like i don't know if i imagine it was just gonna be like bullet points or guess. I didn't think about the fact that i'm to have to not only string this together in a story so that people understand it flows but also i really wanted to enter into this and not just I wasn't trying to indoctrinate people. I didn't want to be like here's what i think. And here's this and only give my lynn's i wanted to say like some scholars say this. Some scholars say that some scholars say this. So i had to be lots of when you bring in the scholars. Yeah you gotta bring the bunks yup. Yup every episode was about five and a half hours five hours of research. So i accidentally gave myself a second fulltime job. Because that's seven days a week. Five hours and episode plus recording. So it's been a lot you're right you're right that's all say it was a lot and we're done but here's the great thing about. It is two thousand nine hundred you put into so much work but this is an asset that people use in two thousand twenty to twenty one your rely on. You don't have to relaunch but remarked all this stuff and everybody. I mean day every day's day one for someone exactly but people starting today one day one. Yeah and just so great about the show too is that it's not based on. Here's what you should be reading on march thirteenth right. It's here's what is on day right. You one eighty three and we have people who they fall behind and tell them. If you're in god's word you are right on time like i promise you what you read..

"Welcome back to the happy hour for flashback. Friday i'm so happy your hair meet you times. I basically think that you're the new happy hour co host because this episode will be your fourth time on the show time on the show. Give him hanging out with you. Needed the happy hour live. We did the happy hour. Live which i missed. The happier lives so much. But you know life and things. But i want to tell won. The first time you came on the show was episode one twelve and it was in october of two thousand sixteen and i remember when that show came out. Everyone was like this is amazing. What is this girl. Tell me all about it. And then the next time you were on was two years later november of two thousand eighteen at episode two twenty. And i think if i recall that was right before you launched the bible recap. Yeah yeah it was relaunched recap k. And then you came on again in november. I mean then. The next time was in december of two thousand nineteen. And that's the show where airing today episode to seventy six. So you're like what you hear today. You can go back and listen to the other ones. But we're catching up flashing back episode. Seventy six from december of two thousand nineteen. And this is when you had sort of making the podcast you were doing these things and so terribly cobble. What has happened in your life since december nineteen jamie icty so much. The lord has used you and your listeners. Perhaps somebody who's listening right now. To just really blow up the ban recap podcast about the recap book. We have all these people who are telling us that they have always wanted to read. The bible tried many times at failed just like our many times failed. And now they've done it and now maybe they've done it two or three times with the bible recap and i'm just so grateful. So we have thrown. So much into the bible recap rebuilt on other curriculum alongside that we have it. In american sign language. We have it in spanish. we have a day. We study guide able weekly discussion guide. Book there's just so many elements of it. I did not know. It was an american sign language and i think you are the person who first exposed me to the idea that language american sign language is not readily available to a lot of people to read the bible and also our brothers and sisters were. Death are one of the most people group they would be like one of the most unreached people groups yet. you told me that and we have worked. I mean we worked with sunshine. Interpreters what we did we worked with sunshine interpreters. They did a great job making videos for us. And we're grateful for them so now the deaf community has not only do they have the bible in their heart language in. Asl but they also have the bible recap as a tool to help them understand it. So we're super grateful for all that and just all the people who were on that project. I've also been working on a bible study from lifeway so we'll have that as women study and as a teen study as well coming out this fall. Bible study on the trinity. When does it come out. I believe it comes out. September first and it's called he's wearing joy is and if you listen to the bible recap you hear that every day in every episode joy. That's what i want. I am after the joy and so knowing the lord that just amplifies all that in my likes so anyway. Bible study in the. I think i might be taking a little trip to israel. Never jamie ivy this. This is so fun. I cannot wait. I can't wait. Yeah yeah so we. We announced this. I mean it feels like a hundred years ago right this trip and then here we are coming up on it. And i'm so so it'll be my first time to israel and in fact fun fact. We're recording this right now while you're actually in israel I'm sitting in my hotel room in israel as we speak. I didn't even probably for this. I think there might be a little bit of like uneasiness with travelling to israel or some the conflict. We've been seeing which isn't new by any means. But how are you feeling in israel right now. It feels exactly like an always which is super naturally peaceful excavating. I had explain it. There has been no sense of unease or unrest. Or it's just been bomb and just all the nearness of the lord at every place that we've been been so grateful and i mean we got here. I think two days after the cease fire and it has just been we were supposed to come during the most recent uprising but the pricing began on our layover in new york. Like i lately landed in new york too. We waited in new york. And i the first alert on my phone was like shots. Fired lay missiles fired. And so it's been a journey. We have to get killed distant about every two days for a couple of weeks and so we found that we that we were gonna be able to fly. But we've.

But that mean that's a big life change. it's a big life change. It would have been a big life change without a pandemic without five. Kids without all of my weirdness. But we're having a blast. A ton of fun is the main answer jamie. Honestly i'm having a total blast. And i have completely overwhelmed. I got the crews that about ninety five miles an hour. Look forward to decelerating down to the speed limit. But we're having a lot of fun now now. I don't assume anything here. I'm sorry that i don't know this. You said you're leaving publishing to go to the pastor position. Is this your first time as a pastor. First time i'm forty two years old. And i totally green trying to figure this out. I did all my schooling. Jamie expecting to go into the pastor. That's what i was planning and hoping and wanting to do and it you know how this goes in our lives. Lord redirects us in ways. We don't see coming. And i don't know maybe i'm just really slow learner or something but twenty one years ago half my life ago i was thinking i'm called to do pastoral ministry and twenty one years later. Finally doing it so house but yeah. It's been a journey. I love hearing that so much. And that's an encouragement to all of us who think we have our goal in mind. This is what we're going to do. I'm gonna just take you on a different little. Were for a little bit in here. You are and so this'll be a big transition for your family as well. I mean not even just for you as myself being married to a pastor. I know the complexities is that sometimes brings and you know the pastoral ministry ministries not new to you in a sense from your family but it is going to be a transition. How is your wife looking forward to this. She is such a trooper. I mean if i went home i said. Hey i a little while afternoon. Jamie ivy's show. And she thinks we should move to ethiopia. Say from the next room. Tell me when to pack. She's all in. She is just a completely non complicating joyful trusting god with me but it is a big move. I mean we're just going one chicago suburbs south to the next one but it means all. My kids are getting ripped out of their schools and going new schools. Church stays the same because we've been at the church for fourteen years now but it's it actually. We might as well be moving at timbuktu's far as especially my older kids. Yeah we're gonna have to almost totally new friend networks and all that so. My dad said to us you know guys. God isn't just calling deign to this church. He's calling you seven to this church and we have been a holding onto that truth. We believe so. Good it's so good. Dan my husband. I walked through something a couple of years ago where we didn't leave where we are now but it was god was doing some things that on this on this side of heaven will under never understand why he took her journey did but we clung to that same truth as in. You know this is just an errand ivy calling. This would be an errand and jamie and caitlyn and amos and deaconess story calling because we to believe that the god is in the business of using families and non jess. Oh look dane has a new job. So i'm glad that you said that comforting comforting. Okay i want to jump into this book. Because the first time i heard about this book actually was my husband quoted it in one of his sermons. And you know. I'm always interested in. Who's e quoting. And where's this from and i want to know more. Tell me about this and so dane. The only thing. I can say to you and i'll try to say without cry. Oh my gosh. I just got emotional. The tears just came into my eyes. Is i read most of this book beside a pool. Which is my favorite place to read a book over my birthday weekend. And there were so many moments that i underlined and close the book and literally just had tears tears of i just read something that reminded me how much jesus loves me and i don't know. Is that the kind of response. You're getting from people. When they say they read. What are they saying. Besides what jamie ivy is saying that you that this book brought me to tears. So many times praised. God that's what i'm hearing time and again wonder of wonders not it ain't thanks so much that i'm gave a theological footnote that i needed to my whole doctrinal framework. Who cares. i mean we want good good theology but yet will you just said sister. That's what god was doing in the in the preparation to right and the writing of the book. And i mean at the end of the day. What else matters. What else matters. It's so true now. I like talking to authors because i know that usually when they pinna work it's because god's done something and them to produce this and so can you take me back to what god did and you previous even writing this book to where this would be the overflow of what he had done in your life. Well yeah and it's it wasn't really so much a one eighty in my heart and mind life so much as i'm so thankful for the family i grew up in the churches. I grew up the the seminaries i went to. I would trade all that for anything. But something went from two d to three d from audio to video from a black and white to color in who i believed was the actual genes us there Who is this one. I'm actually following. Who is this one in matthew. Mark luke jump the risen christ. I'm going to see face to face one day. What's he really like an honestly jamie. I mean the answer is it was. It's been my own ongoing sin. Shame regret guilt and anguish over the last decade of my life that forced me to settle once and for all for me. I needed to figure out. I needed to note. Is his patience wearing thin or actually does he. Love me most in my worst. Is it my deepest pockets of sin. Shame and regret those dark crevices of my heart..

"You know some some of the things you can see that okay. Maybe he wasn't a jerk. But then there's some things where like when. I would get punished. Like he'd cut my hair like you're not allowed to be pretty. You were not allowed to feel good about yourself. Those things I know were like not okay so you kind of have to go through like your ear. It's like a sifting with flower. You know like you're okay. Yeah that's that's understandable. That's not okay. She would your hair. Yeah that was new trouble. was a method of punishment. So I have. I have two two so two for sure. Instances of how many siblings at home are you the? Are you the oldest of three siblings case? So you're the oldest okay so you should know better because you're the oldest. I mean that's the theory anyway right so you're the oldest and then who's who's underneath you boys girls two brothers who are So I was. I don't care for age doesn't matter to me so garnered seventy nine okay. My next weather is born at eighty two. We're about the same age. Okay and then. The brother after that was eighty three. And they're you're apart. Yeah did I. Did I miss your? Are you the so? You're the only girl on the girl. Okay do you think so you know not to sound sexist? That's absolute choice. So my parents divorced when I was four and we moved across. We were in California. We moved to Georgia my dad and I and I can't like I kind of think about like when I carry my pillow case and I'm walking to the car and I'm like wait. My mom like not you what did I know before I didn't know has never gonna see her again and I don't know what their interactions where. I know that they were heavily into bad things. But my brother stayed with my mom in Iowa with my dad to Georgia the other side of the United States. Were you guys living family in San Jose California? Wow so the country okay in so fast forward I mean I kind of lived a life for you know a few years in Georgia being like my grandparents came with us because my dad was not able to totally care for me himself and so we lived in a nice neighborhood. We had a pool in the backyard. Sunday with the big hats in the fancy dresses and the white gloves. You know like I just kind of had it all to myself. Pollyanna the movie. Maybe I don't know if you knew that will be okay for the perm to go with him. I was alright sale and those but I also have memories of that time with my dad were like. He drove drunk and had branches underneath this vehicle. And My GRANDPA was being down trying to figure out why wasn't answering the door you know so and these are things that you remember. I remember him being suicidal. And seeing that you know so then you think okay. There's obviously in as you're older you're able to piece together whereas in central do you have no idea what you're really kind of piecing together but then fast forward time twelve and my mom comes kind of back into the picture and this is going to sound crazy. She sells my brothers back to my dad for a vehicle. She needed a truck. She sells them or trays them. I at least I like the trade better. That maybe makes her mom sound somewhat. Not as in. Himalayan you gotTA KEEP IN MIND. What years in this drug addicts so twelve? I was twelve as born in seventy nine. What is that ninety one? I mean we're we're not talking. One thousand seven hundred eighty. I mean not that that makes any difference but so then my goodness I on top of all the craziness of that you've got someone who's been raised basically as an only child and then incomes two boys. You know up until I was thirteen. My Dad and I were best friends like I thought. He Hung the moon like he was the coolest we hung out. We did everything together. He changed definitely around twelve but when we left California at four he had already cut my hair. It was too much for him to have to brush. And I don't know maybe that's true as guy having to braid hair and do all that like Beeping Guy Dad. I didn't cut her hair. But I was always very nice. Idiom still serve for the way Polger Bear Nice. Yeah I feel bad about that because you would cry and it's hard. It is hard mom brushing. It was rough so I get it so I give my wife's amazing. She would come home and the ponytail wasn't right. Dad Did you heard today L. Let me let me fix it. Though she cut it. My daughter cut hers but I never okay so then at twelve basically my brothers came into the picture and put this together until right now which is why. I love talking to people. That's why we don't talk people so you go. Maybe that did have something to do with it but I do. I do know it went both ways so with my brothers. When they got in trouble he shaved their head. When I got in trouble he cut my hair so it was more of a military guy. Okay but okay you know what you can see that that was was your grandfather in the military was navy so that might be why. Maybe but my GRANDPA was like the nicest guy. Yeah you know. Grandparents are always nicer to the grand kids. I mean you know mom right. I mean you've probably seen that firsthand. I WOULD IMAGINE. Don't have grandparents but my husband's dad like so sweet sweet as pie and he always says like he was not like that right. Yeah that's what I'm saying so I feel like I feel like that. Yeah that's probably the case so I'm so I'm just fascinated by the fact that this is your adolescence. This is your growing up. This is the foundation of where you are and then you make these decisions right at sixteen. That really has dramatically. Changed Your Life over the last twenty years or so right and you've been carrying around this wait for so long and again. I think if he didn't start the blog insert sharing about your life right. And what's happened and being I would imagine a great resource for ladies giving ladies of voice in these tough areas. Let's face it. Nobody wants to talk about abortion when they do. It's usually a fights on a conversation. It's a fight right domestic violence. Nobody ever wants to talk about. We'll throw an eight hundred number one. Eight hundred number on the screen at the end of a really dramatic show or you know that just happened on the show. This is us no sorry A million little things there was a show where my wife and I were watching but my point is is in the divorce. I mean no disrespect. Just that's like the Trifecta of life. I mean it's funny the hard part about these things. He's hot button issues. Is that while they they suffocate. The person with the shame and they walk around with it more times than not when. I share like if I just have kind of like. I don't WanNa say the word that I'm thinking because it would be awful but that's okay you can say it like Terry of the mouth like word vomit. Young word vomit okay. So that's good to diarrhea grotesque vomit. Just sounds still a little pleasant yes Bush. Better their response to me as always. How did you turn out so normal with what you've been through and I always think that's funny because what is normal normal doesn't exist and I think the part that I love about having? Maybe that's what it is. I have fallen in love in a sense with my past. I almost kind of appreciated it in a weird way because it has given me so much empathy and understanding and always seeing the other side of situations that people just don't care to understand or get to know so. Would you say that you really feel like you can walk in other people's shoes because of what you've been through show plug absolutely and I think that's what I love about it but I say that and people are probably going to be laughing or maybe scolding me later? I'll get emails. I'm sure like how could you work your fill into her pain? Well it's really easy because that's where shows about your pain but but walking in someone else's shoes walking in someone else's perspective someone else's understanding right because what happens if we don't have empathy in this world in your mind there's judgment and it's it's uneducated and unloving judgement so at one of their could ever be locking judgment. I don't even know how do I guess that would go in? But to me when I meet someone and they they have you ever heard of the word. Sin Shock Sin Shock. No I have not I I can imagine what it is but how do you define central Jamie Ivy wrote a book and I think Jamie Ivy Happy Hour? She has a podcast called happy hour. Yeah book also comes out goalless. Happy Hour my wife is star. Sho Go on so she talks about sin shock and basically. It's when someone because of team they tell you something horrible at themselves in the look on your face just kind of takes over. My goal is to never have that someone. My goal is to meet someone with just so much love and compassion and understanding empathy that they felt like their home and they can tell you anything because I feel like I've always been met with sent shock or the I've even may be carried. Sin Shock for myself. I'm so shocked that I can't share it. You know. I don't know if that makes sense but I think it is because I think part of it for you again if I'm putting words in your mouth obviously correct me but I think part of what I'm hearing you say is hey listen. My past is in the past but my past has taught me so many amazing lessons. Not Glorifying what I did by any means. I'm not saying every everyone. Every woman should go out and have an abortion. I'm not saying. Every woman needs saying abusive relationship. I'm not saying if your marriage is. Failing divorce is the only answer i. I don't think you're saying that but I think what you're doing is whatever hand for playing cards. Hey I got these cards. They're terrible but I tried to make them work a couldn't and now I'm trying to help you understand what a good card is. A motor bankcard is or even what the ramifications of the hand. That you what. You're what car do you play is so you know because there's consequences right. Well there is. There's all a obviously there's three sides to every story you know his hers and the Real Story. I truly believe that as well. Yeah so that's kind of the same with feelings and emotions and what we experience. So take for instance abortion you. Have you know the horrible part of it? You have the the fact of what's happening to the baby. Then you have the the people who have opinions on whether that should be legal whether a woman's body whatever then you also have what happens to the woman that is experiencing this in a lot of people and I'm not saying that wants more than the other. I'm not saying that once right one's wrong. What I want to say is that the woman still deserves to have the understanding the compassion of knowing that this is affecting her and it's going to affect her for the rest of her life whether she admits it now or twenty years from now. You know you might think that it's no big deal and they have all these hashtags that are crazy you know. Abortion is healthcare and all that Kinda stuff and I worry more about her. I'm not saying that I don't worry about the I wanNA make sure it's very clear because like I said I do not agree with abortion. It breaks my heart to think that I've even been throw. It gets even still to this day..

"And so during that season, I was seeing other adoptive families. I was probably watching you on Instagram, Jamie. I don't know. And I ran into my cousins who are these extended step cousins, I never see them. And honestly when I saw them at this family function. I was uncomfortable around them. I've told her this, and I've said it publicly and in the book, but like they're radical. What I thought was like this radical thing they did made me very aware. Yes. Special needs adoption. Okay. Made me very aware of like, my unwillingness to be surrendered to the Lord because I was too scared because I was like still recovering from defensive posture. Of like, good morning Jesus. Nice to see you. Please protect me and my people. What can I do to protect me? My people rather than please use me today, homey. Love the other scared people in this world. So I saw her kind of avoided her the mom, and then I saw them again at another family wedding the same year, which is just weird that happens and we were seated at the same table in the reception. And I remember thinking like, oh, man. Okay. Now, I'm going to feel really guilty, and they were so kind and full of love and normal and like down to earth, and it was like God was allowing me because I can see Jamie Ivy and her doctor family on my phone. It'd be like how beautiful, but I don't know you, I don't know your life. But I was sitting with this family, you know, up close talking, and it just kind of I don't know it softened me. And then she posted some pictures of the orphanage where they adopted their little girl, who's missing an arm and all these things kind of led to the Brandon on this. So Brandon has always wanted to dog since he was eighteen okay. Got it came Christian. He's like this is a beautiful picture of. The gospel. I want this. It was like a fight in our home because he'd be like, let's do it. And I'm like, no you have it. It's not for everybody. I don't wanna talk about it. Right. Because I was afraid of the choice in the form and the special needs and the boy, girl and all the decisions and feeling things. Yes. I didn't wanna talk about it. So anyway, I was driving one day grocery store. My oldest who was five was like, I'm so glad I have a mom and dad. Mommy. I'm so glad I have a house to live in, mommy. And I just remember like, you know, we as parents Christian parents, we want to instill the gospel into our kids, and I was like reciting script. I was like, yes, it's really great. When a family has what they need, and they can adopt a child who needs a home, you know. And as I'm saying, it, it was the most supernatural experience I've ever had because it was like God went like this, and I was just into driving to Kroger, and I'm inch instantly sobbing instantly. Fearless feeling about it and instantly and intensely desiring special needs little girl from China. And it was so crazy 'cause he can't explain that stuff. It's on. It's crazy. And I called my husband crying. And then he's crying and he's like, let's call. So it was this whirlwind where we didn't have the money to adopt us really expensive. We have the same that saved. But every single hurdle. It was like God provided every single penny. We needed he led us to check. Yes. To deafness. We did not even know a deaf person. I don't think we'd ever met a deaf person. But for some reason when it was like cancer HIV, all these different things you check. Yes. No. Or maybe it's it's a hard form. It's a really hard form. And we just both felt like yeah. Let's put yes to this. And I remember later that night. I was praying and I said out loud, which I don't always pray aloud. But I did in the moment. I was like God. Why what did I just why did I turn that forum in?.

"So these kids get like a real family that they live with it's Super Bowl, and we were able to send them a hundred thousand dollars at the end of the year. So I mean, it's pretty amazing. I mean, the impact is just so nutso. So if you shopped thank you so much you made a huge difference. And I also get a lot of questions about this star necklace that I wear and that is under the squall line which supports eighty and aspiring to open Haitian krill. So each purchase support spreading throughout Haiti. So thank you for that. And check out the star necklace at the shot for dot com. If you want to do that and this necklace the Super Bowl because it does sport Haiti, but also supports women locally in Nashville, providing Ican. Comic opportunity for them. So it's made here in the US. So has local Anglo impacts. I wanna dress a question I got from Erica about being an adopted mom to children of a different race. And here's what Erica said you've adopted two beautiful children from Haiti as a white woman. I too am white. And the man I'm dating is black. I very much want kids. But he said he's hesitant to have children because he doesn't want them experiencing the racism. He has I was wondering if that's something you've had to address with your children as a white woman, and any advice, you may have. So for this question. The first person that came to mind was not me myself, which I know that this question was for me. But I thought on my friend, Jamie Ivy, which I have here with us. Now, jamie. Hi. And she now, she's an adoptive mom as well from two kids from Haiti, and then a you have a biological son and another adopted son from San Antonio, right? Oh, good. So yeah. And Jamie is very vocal about her family, and kind of how awesome y'all arm in you have to deal with certain race things with your kids. So I thought it would bring you in to kind of tackle this question with me because I still feel like I'm new to this whole thing. Even though it's been a year, and you've been dealing with it for a lot longer or I don't even know if I want to use the word dealing, but you've had to address it for a lot longer than I have. So I wanted to bring in your thoughts. First of all on just want to say, this is really great question because it's just real life. You know, and again like any said, I'm a white woman. And so I come to it with zero experience being black. And so there's just that. But my experience like Amy like you is having black children. And so Eric her boyfriend is he has. Good point. I mean, there is racism still alive and well into the nineteen, and he probably has dealt with a lot of things that as us women being white will never experience. And so I think there's a part of the yet to erica's just knowledge. Yes. This is real what you're saying is true. This really happens. You know, as a mom dealing with my kids, we have had so many conversations about prejudice and racism and people thinking looking at you different because your skin is different for me by advice to Erica is to really listen to your boyfriend's like to listen to experiences was into what you're saying. And never say it can't be that bad or she didn't really experience that because his experiences true in real. And I think it's hard for us understand his white women. I don't know if I told you anybody about a year and a half ago, we had someone say something jerk. It's we live in a city outside of Austin. And it's a kind of smaller town type field, and it was a book game. A man looked at. My two boys and it was during the national anthem. And he said you boys better not deal. And my boys are not on this team. They were in the stands like, it was just as my boys came home and tell this to us, and they were just like what what is what's going on what's happening, and it led to so many conversations in our house. And so I don't I don't have like the answer Erica and her situation..

"jamie ivy" Discussed on 4 Things with Amy Brown

"With Amy Brown episode eight here, we are. I've got my sister coming on this episode to talk about aunt Flo. If you know what I'm talking about because our mom did not talk to us about girl time periods. Whatever she really just didn't. And then when the time came my sister, and I are both kind of in the dark, and then by the time, I started my sister was in college of see wasn't really round. I was just so in the dark, and I had to call my sister. The other day freaking out because I've got a daughter now. My sister has a daughter, and obviously they're both going through a lot of things where we're like trying to handle it differently than our mom did. Now, armone was awesome. Don't get us wrong. Like, she was really a great mom, but there was some areas. She just didn't do well at talking with us about and I kind of wish that she would have. So maybe if you're a mom or girl, you'll be able to relate to our conversation about this. And I also Jamie Ivy coming on I got an Email from a listener talking about being white and having people. On your life of another race. Like her boyfriend is black and they talk about having children, and that's a whole thing. And Jamie, Narberth both moms adopted moms of children that are not white. So we touch on some of that. And then talk about hot lemon water. Why you need to be drinking it every day. And then a show that I just got done bingeing with my husband that I'm pretty obsessed with and I love, and I think that you need to know about it, and you need to be watching it. So there you go. That's kinda the little outline of what is to come on today's episode. So let's get started. Okay. I've got my sister Christy on Christie. Do you have any nicknames for periods while there's aunt slow? That's the only one I can think of it. I got more right? Yeah. The. Crimson tide. Oh, yeah. That's what we're discussing it came up because we're both moms of daughters and dealing with some of that as moms. Now, you kind of reflect on how it was dealt with you buy your in our case, it's our mom in are just did not talk to us. He did not. She did not talk to us about periods about shaving about bras about I know, the bees and all the things why. I mean, she was a good mom. Why do you think she's totally? Why didn't you do that? I don't know that. I think it's a common thing of some of that generation because I definitely have friends that were totally in the same boat. It just made me want to be sure that I was a lot more direct on being sure I've mentioned all of these things to my daughter who's now fifteen so we've kind of crossed the threshold of all of that. But you know, several years ago just kind of getting her ready around fourth grade. I think is when we really started conversations in they've been kind of going ever since. But no mom did not. Not mention it to us. In fact, I didn't even wanna tell her when I went through it. Did you know, and she never talked to me about it. I just knew. Okay. I think I need a pad or no that there's something about him. But I didn't know how to really use it and I was on drill team. And I was I started late like I was probably in the ninth grade when I started I didn't have you to come to because you were in college. And right. I put on like spandex every day and went to drill team practice and would be using using because not only helped me, and nobody told me, and it was so embarrassing, and that's really difficult to do..
