I found Nicole Zasowski through her book What If It’s Wonderful? Let go of your fears, choose joy and find courage to celebrate and it touched me in some really deep places. I didn’t expect that a book about parties would make me discover such unexpected things that I have to process in my life.

In her book and this podcast episode, Nicole shares her story of five miscarriages and how that struggle made her stop hoping and just live in constant fear and dread of the unknown. She candidly shares what it looked like to lose hope and feel so overwhelmed with discouragement. Then she shares practical suggestions for pursuing joy and finding the courage to hope again.

Whether you are in a dark pit of despair or just would like to experience more joy and celebration and hope in your life, I think this episode will really encourage you!
