We are back at it again with another episode. This time we reflect on our "Gayby" selves. Jess brought this topic to the table to be DIC'd down after she had a conversation with a "Gayby" who had so many questions and so few answers. That got us to thinking about our younger selves, the questions we had, and if maybe we can provide some answers to those questions and worries we had back then.

In this episode we i...

We are so excited for this episode. This topic presented itself in the form of a theme that we have observed in our lives and the lives of friends and family over the last few weeks. We were left with no choice but to DIC this topic down so that we can really get down to the lesson and what source is trying to tell us.

This episode we will provide our personal (D)efinitions of "Self-ish" and "Self-care". Then we will...

In the lyrics of John Mayer, "Fathers, be good to your daughters..." because *insert title of this episode*... ah you get it.

But if you are still lost, in Episode 16 we dive into our Father's LOVE and what it looks like for us. Considering that Father's Day just passed and just three episodes ago we were talking about the gifts we got from our mothers, it is only appropriate that we balance things out.

Here we are again and this time we are talking money. We are talking money and how much it would take have the life of our dreams. I think right now, everybody is thinking about having more money and what that could do for us. What doors it could open, opportunity and freedoms it could grant? But is it really the answer? And that led us to thinking, If money wasn’t an object, who would you BE? 

In this episode, we break down what mo...

EP. 11 is brought to you by a random rant about how somewhere in the Bible it says something about how when we die, we go to Heaven and spend our days indulging in copious amounts of Milk and Honey, which led to a rant about how "Heaven" is wack for only serving "Milk and Honey". That led us to thinking, is it literally "Milk and Honey"? or YOUR equivalent of “Milk and Honey”. That lead to the question and t...
