Amber Peay says you are capable of ALL things. You can achieve all things through moment to moment faith, as she has done her entire life. Being raised solely by a young, single father, moving often and surviving on TV dinners had its challenges.
Peay is the Founder and CEO of Granola Grown, a homegrown, wholesome brand that stands for quality and hospitality. With my husband in hand, she’s a dedicated mom of two daughters, grateful for their simple home with many home-cooked meals!
Hear Peay talk about the role her faith played in the formation and growth of Granola Grown.
Dr. Joey’s guest today is award-winning Christian mystery writer Judy Kelly. Her latest novel, “Blessings and Curses,” advocates for more women becoming priests.
Her first novel, ‘That Ever Died So Young,” was a finalist in the Somerset Literary and Contemporary Fiction Award 2014: “The Weekend,” and “The Nun,” published in anthologies.
"Blessings and Curses" explores spirituality, hope, psychology & love through the eyes of a young woman who is ambivalent about becoming a priest even after she has completed seminary, because she believes she has a curse over her. In order to help her find whether or not she is led to the priesthood, her priest gives her an assignment – to pray with an inmate on death row. The theme of her book was in part inspired by her research which showed that a good many people who enter seminary school decide that they don't want to be a priest.
Hear Judy talk with Dr. Joey about the challenges of bringing your Christianity into your art.

In 2010, Stacy Brookman was in the middle of a several-years-long divorce with a sociopath. It was the lowest point in her life.
It took her years to finally be authentic because she was bogged down by self-doubt, by trying to please other people…by trying to just get by, and to move on as if nothing affected her.
Stacy realized authenticity only by doing the inner work necessary. She started digging into her life stories. That’s what truly created her ability to CHANGE her life story – to become more authentic and free.
Listen as Stacy shares her amazing spiritual journey with Dr. Joey!
