Welcome to episode 010 of Mud Stories!
Mud Stories is a podcast dedicated to bringing you inspiration in your muddiest moments, hope to make it through your mud, and encouragement for you to know, you are not alone.
In today’s episode I’m talking with my friend (and yours) Crystal Stine–a toddler-wrangling, coffee & chocolate loving, full-time working mama who is married to her high-school sweetheart.
She’s the editorial and marketing manager of the online site (in)courage.me–her new job that has come in the aftermath of devastating job loss, financial hardship, and crisis.
In this episode we discuss:
- Crystal’s personal mud story of job loss and financial hardship
- Career aspirations of women & the difficult transition of becoming a mother
- The challenge of mothers working outside the home
- How online connections can bring true community
- The important effort of resting
- The benefits of life-coaching
- And how crisis and tragedy can be one of God’s greatest gifts
Crystal lives in PA with her husband and sweet daughter, is passionate about living authentically in the beautiful, messy, and unfinished parts of life, and loves to encourage others more than just about anybody I know.
