Find Joy No Matter What

Join me, Jill Baughan, this season for a podcast full of stories that will show you how to find JOY in the middle of hard places.

Your life may be far from perfect.

Your joy may seem like it’s gone underground.

If so, it’s high time for a resurrection.

For a few minutes each week, I’ll tell you a story–one that just might inspire a way to uncover some joy you might be looking for. Then, together, we’ll consider how it might speak to your own life. And finally, I’ll offer a benediction to send you into your day…or into your night.

So… if you’re up for doing a few joy shots with a friend, my friend…Come and join us!

Podcast Episode 107: Get Used To Different

Podcast Episode 106: Get Into Trouble

A while back, I posted on social media a picture of a little girl wearing a cowboy hat, and riding a stick horse. The caption read, “I’m fixin’ to get in trouble. You comin’?” And I was surprised at the exuberance (and the number) of responses to this idea.  What is...

Podcast Episode 101: Release Your Stress

Podcast Episode 101: Release Your Stress

I had a dream as a child--not to be a great scientist or an astronaut or a superhero; not to discover a cure for an incurable disease or go to the moon. No, my childhood dream--so much humbler than those--was to break dishes. To be clear, I was not an angry child, and...

Podcast Episode: 95-Ask Questions

Young children are relentless questioners. Just ask any parent of a kid whose mouth can fire “Why?” and “What’s that?” faster than speeding bullets, into the air and the ears of a sometimes exasperated audience. But, says journalist Diane Stopyra, for adults who’ve...
