This week we are joined by Ashleigh Slater, the co-host of the Podcast "Team Us", as well as the author of the books, "Team Us: The Unifying Power of Grace, Commitment, and Cooperation in Marriage" and "Braving Sorrow Together: The Transformative Power of Faith and Community When Life Is Hard." In her writing, she loves to unite the power of a good story with biblical truth and practical application to encourage readers. For more information visit

Ashleigh and Kathryn dive into one of the Team Us Podcast's recent episodes, "How to Rescue a Valentine's Day Gone Wrong", dealing with loss after miscarriage, and anxiety with panic attacks.

Scripture Meditations:
“I've told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I've conquered the world.” (John 16:33, MSG).

"Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:5-7).
