Today, I interview Elaine Williams who said that growing up, she felt an emptiness-- that something was wrong with the world. She experienced childhood depression and anxiety, feeling as if no one was really listening to her. 

Later events led to her feeling like "the lightning rod of the family", having too much directed at her. She felt it was unsafe to speak the truth for fear that it would be used against her. Missing the mark was not an option and her self-image began to crumble. 

Elaine credits many angels, educators, and mentors along the way for her self-discovery and spiritual awakening. After letting go of resentments, she was able to heal and find her own boldness and identity. Now, it's impossible to miss the fun energy she brings into the room!

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
