Chronic Illness & Keeping the Faith

No one would ever choose Chronic Illness and yet when Chronic Illness chooses us we have some big decisions to make.  Join Monica, Sara and I as we look at Chronic Illness, how it can impacts us, our family and more importantly how to move from bondage to breakthrough even in the face of a Chronic Illness.

#225: CHRONIC ILLNESS (Part 1)

“Wherever life takes me, I will preach Christ.”  – Tracy Hurst

Love, Tracy 


Depression to Hope

Major Depressive Disorder is the “common cold” of mental illness in America, impacting over 17 million people. It affects how we feel, think and behave, and is usually accompanied with unexpressed sadness, hurt, anger, disappointment, fear or guilt.

And guess what? Women are nearly twice as likely as men to have depression. This is why we’re doing this series! Women are drowning in depression and we want to bring HOPE! This week, Tracy gives us an incredible teaching on how we can not only get help, but also how we can DARE TO HOPE.

Walking From Bondage to Breakthrough: Be Podcast

I wanted to let you know about a Podcast Series I am apart of on Be Still Be Free. Now more than ever, it has become evident that “for such a time as this” could not be more appropriate. The name of our fall series is Walking from Bondage to Breakthrough: Honest Conversations About Women’s Secret Struggles.  And I really (…really…) want to encourage you to subscribe NOW so that you won’t miss an episode! So, go ahead and subscribe using this link: Be Still Be Free…. I’ll wait right here for you!


We have found that women are desperate to hear what the Word has to say about depression, fear, anxiety, grief, pain, self-loathing and comparison. We’ll be bringing not only Truth and relatability to these issues, but will also include the voices of women who have experienced these strongholds along with my counseling insights on each topic.
Monica and Sara started Be Still Be Free about 7 years ago, when God laid on their hearts to connect with women in an effort to live in the freedom of all that God has to offer. They had a burden for the number of women in their own worlds struggling with embracing all that God has created us to be, instead of focusing on all we are not. They are a very Bible-based podcast that seeks the truth of God’s Word to set us free. They are an organic ministry — no profit, no advertising — they’ve grown organically by women who love their mission and share among their circles
Please take a moment to visit their website and discover who they are and their mission. Be Still Be Free has been an active podcast for almost 7 years, with over 200 episodes and more than 225,000 downloads to date. They’ve interviewed women such as Lysa TerKeurstAlli WorthingtonAnnie F. DownsSophie HudsonShauna Niequist and for some reason I have been a guest favorite…all glory to God! 
The attached graphic below outlines the series which runs from August-November. Every episode is free, and in addition to new podcast episodes every Monday, this series will also include weekly Friday videos and monthly live Q&A’s. This is an excellent opportunity for listeners to interact with us and ask personal questions of myself and Monica and Sara! We can also provide small-group discussion questions for each episode, should small groups want to gather.

So, join us today as we dive into Walking From Bondage To Breakthrough: From Fear to Faith Part 1:! 

Let me know your thoughts on this series and I hope and pray you are well and healthy.
Love and Blessings,

Interview with Kevin and Taylor on 104.7 The Fish 

Tracy Hurst: Finding Hope While Dealing With Pandemic Depression

So…I cannot say enough good things about Kevin & Taylor and their producer, Griffin on 104.7!  It was truly an honor to be interviewed by them and my thanks goes out to Taylor’s sister (I don’t know her name) but she heard me speak at a Women’s Conference a while back, and a recent Podcast with Monica & Sara on  The interview is short and sweet, but I pray it brings encouragement to even a few during the strange time of the coronavirus shutdown. Blessings!
