Episode 33: Loving an Addict, with author Christine Naman
3299.75506300
In this episode of Life Lessons, Gin and Sheri talk with Christine Naman, author of the book About Natalie. Christine tells the story of her daughter's struggle with addiction, as well as the challenges that come along with parenting--and loving--an addict. Christine shares her personal journey with us, from the phone call that no parent ever wants to receive to the moment they realized that her young daughter had a serious problem. She speaks very candidly about the past 10 years, the ups and downs, and where Natalie is today at the age of 22. With her book, About Natalie, she hopes to awaken other parents to the dangers that are readily available to their children, and to help other parents feel supported if they are dealing with the same struggles in their home. Her message is that you can love the addict, even if you don’t love the behavior and choices of the addict.

Episode 25: Demystifying Menopause: from Pre- to Post-, with Dr. Anna Cabeca
3067.74500000
In this episode of Life Lessons, Gin and Sheri talk with Dr. Anna Cabeca about the stages of life all women go through as they transition from pre-menopause, to peri-menopause, and finally to post-menopause. Together, they discuss listener questions and Dr. Cabeca provides solutions so all of us can make an empowered transition. Dr. Cabeca is known as the Girlfriend Doctor, and for good reason. Listening to her talk is like talking with “one of the girls”--but one who happens to hold all of the answers to the questions you may have been afraid to ask. Unfortunately, even in today’s society, there is a real lack of understanding and discussion of the challenges related to female hormones and the changes we go through over time. Even the terminology is often misunderstood. Dr. Cabeca shares what all women need to know and what you need to be asking your doctor about, as well as what you can do to make this life transition easier and less stressful.

Episode 14: We Care: Domestic Abuse Awareness
3873.10400000
In this episode of Life Lessons, Gin and Sheri talk to Aryn Quinn of We Care. Today's episode covers a topic that we all need to hear, even if we are ourselves in a healthy relationship. Did you know that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner? Domestic abuse is not always physical, however, and today's guest Aryn Quinn will help identify all forms of abuse and the warning signs. Knowing the early warning signs may just keep you or someone you love from harm, and maybe it's your daughter, son, sister, brother, or friend. Aryn believes that it is time to break the silence and shame that surrounds domestic abuse. She started an organization that provides education to people of all ages as well as support and education for those who are recovering from abuse in an effort to break the cycle of abuse that is often perpetuated for generations.
