Stacey Simms once proclaimed herself the "worst diabetes mom" is parenting a child with Type-1 Diabetes and building a community of awareness.Parenting a Child with Type-1 DiabetesParenting brings a certain amount of unsolicited advice. We never seem to be doing it good enough. Someone will always feel he or she has a better way, and you must hear about it. Add to that the challenge of parenting a child with type-1 diabetes, and you an extra layer of judgment coming in the form of advice. There may be a pressure of needing to be the perfect parent. We are all human. Perfection is not an option, especially when it comes to parenting a child with Type-1 diabetes. Modern technology loves to show us the highlight reels of someone's life, a life we do not have ourselves. It's easy to feel like a failure. Long-time podcast host, speaker, and author, Stacey Simms, shares with us how mistakes became her superpower. These lessons have been compiled into her book, The World's Worst Diabetes Mom.Who is Stacey SimmsAuthor, podcaster, and parent, Stacey Simms applied her experience from a career in broadcasting to build a community of parents and experts dealing with type-1 diabetes. Just before her son turned two-years-old in 2006, Stacey’s son was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes (T1D). As the family of four settled into their new way of life, Stacey began doing what she does best, writing about her experience. Since the beginning, her diabetes philosophy has been: not perfect, but safe and happy. That mantra was fine until someone on Facebook told her she was an awful parent.What is Diabetes Connections?Diabetes Connections is the T1D news show you’ve been waiting for! Long-time broadcaster, blogger, and diabetes mom Stacey Simms interviews prominent advocates, authors, and speakers. Stacey asks hard questions of healthcare companies and tech developers and brings on “everyday” people living with type 1 diabetes.

Dave Ebert on the Benefits of Improv and Mental Health
Improv coach and credentialed minister, Dave Ebert, discusses the benefits of improv in his life and as a ministry to others. See the full show notes at BeyondTheRut.com/250Improv and Mental Health“Laughter is the tangible evidence of hope.” - Michael Junior, Christian comedianImprovisation is the form of comedy where you make up your lines on the fly. Having done this a few times through corporate training events, I can say with confidence there is a sense of liberation when it comes to embracing improv. It forces you to get out of your comfort zone and connect with both yourself and others.The benefits of improv carry over into mental health. Studies show there is a significant improvement in one’s sense of connection and well-being. Social anxiety disorder, for example, has a prevalence in the United States around 12%, and improvisation has shown that improv and mental health are a great combination in reducing the effects of social anxiety disorder according to the Journal of Creativity and Mental Health.The benefits of improv come from its elements of connection in group cohesiveness, play, exposure, and within the safety net of humor. Humor is known for increasing certain endorphins in our brains to make us feel happier as well.Improv coach, minister, podcaster, and former professional wrestler, Dave Ebert, will take us through the concepts of improv therapy for his life as well as the impact it has on others today through his platform Gifts4Glory and his improv troop known as Well Versed Comedy.About Dave EbertDave is the founder of Gifts for Glory Ministries, as well as the founder of both Well Versed Comedy and PureFest. Dave moved to Chicago to pursue a life and career in ministry to use his gifts for God's glory. Whether it be making people laugh during an improv show, moving the audience with a dramatic role, preaching the Word of God from the pulpit, or inspiring a crowd from the podium, Dave is right at home in front of a crowd.His testimony about how God delivered him from depression and suicidal ideations through the benefits of improv has helped many people find healing and hope for the last 8 years.Dave and his wife, Bobbie, have been married since 2015 and reside in the southwest Chicago suburbs with their three cats. They attend and are active in Thrive Church, Lockport, Ill.

3 Hacks to Master Your Response to Change Michael Diettrich-Chastain
Michael Diettrich-Chastain, executive coach and founder of Arc Integrated, discusses 3 hacks to help you master your response to change drawing from his experience and knowledge in psychotherapy.Your Response to ChangeChange is constant, and change can be traumatic for people.

The end result is increased trust, more buy-in, and thriving results through change.You’ll hear about Michael’s background in psychotherapy and how he has applied it to leadership development, team building, and change management. We will cover the “Three R’s” from Diettrich-Chastain’s book Changes on how to respond to change rather than react to it.

That is what happened to Matt Manney at thirteen years old after a major change happened in his family. The response of positive male role models in his church inspired him to pursue a life in ministry as a pastor.There was just one problem. Along the way, he seemed to have lost his way. There was a struggle with why he was doing the work of ministry and began to wonder if he was in the right place for the right reasons.A series of humbling experiences helped him reshape his why, and his how, and continues his work as a pastor with new passion and focus. Matt’s books and podcast are designed to help you discover how to know your calling in ministry. What does it mean to work in ministry? Does ministry mean working on a church staff only?About Matt ManneyMatt Manney is a husband, dad to three awesome kids, a pastor, writer, blogger, podcaster, reader, and dreamer.

There may be a misalignment between what we are doing now and that gut feeling you are meant for more. Matt’s message is about how to find your calling, clarify it, and then pursue it. Funny thing is that’s what we are about at Beyond the Rut as well, which is why we have him on the show this episode.Master that space between your private and public life.
