Episode 032- Overcoming Loss and Living Your Edge of the Wild with Bo Stern
In today's podcast interview I have so much wisdom for you, ESPECIALLY if you've recently found yourself recovering from loss or trauma. I am so excited to talk with Bo Stern who is a mom of four, writer, speaker, pastor and co-founder of Sheology.co, an online platform empowering women to find and use their voice to live their place in the story of God. She talks about how she launched her ministry, and how she found herself again by re-learning her faith.
After losing her husband in 2015 to ALS, a disease her husband fought for several years, Bo went on a journey of self-discovery, and finding what she calls her "edge of the wild", and eventually starting Sheology.co.
Today We Discuss:
The love of God in the midst of trials & pain.
Bo's healing process and finding her passion again, including the trip to Italy that started it all.
How To choose your happy.
The power of embracing risk and say YES.
Empowering women to speak and lead inside and outside of the church.
The difference between women's equality and equity in the church and what we can do to change it.
About Bo Stern:
Bo Stern realizes life is full of fierce and unexpected battles. When her husband was diagnosed with a terminal illness, she knew she had found her Goliath. With winsome sincerity, Bo points to the battle plans available to us in Scripture and to our God who brings beauty from the struggles we face.
Bo is a mom, writer, speaker, pastor and world-class procrastinator. She loves words when they’re woven into stories and people when they let their stories shine. Her favorite place in the world is home. Her second favorite place is Westside Church, where she has been on staff for 10 years. Her third favorite place is Positano, Italy. She is passionate about helping find a cure for ALS, a disease her husband fought for several years, before his death in 2015 ( She is not actually helping find a cure, rather helping find money to help find a cure…she’s not allowed to go near science.) Bo has written three books and her dearest dream is that each one makes you laugh, cry, and believe that you can become your best self in the middle of the hardest fight. She also believes that Jesus is worth pursuing and that grace changes everything.
