NASH THE COOL BUS with Dave & Taylor Nichols - COVID Reflections (Part IV)
With everything going on in the world today, many of us can be scared to hope or even think about the future. In wrestling with these feelings in our own lives throughout COVID we’ve come to understand how important it is to continue dreaming and holding onto hope, even in the midst of uncertainty. Today we want to encourage you to push past your fear, find the courage to dream as you hold onto hope, even in the midst of so much unknown! For us, this looks like renovating a school bus and hitting the road on a crazy homeschooling adventure with our kids! As we close out season 4 today, Dave and I talk about leaning in, moving forward, and taking Speak Life on the road in our new schoolie NASH_THECOOLBUS Get All The Links from Today’s Show Here Connect with Taylor:Website | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter

Lindsey Nobles - From 'burnout to balancing responsibility'
There are so many times that we fail to reach out and connect because of fear. On today’s episode, Lindsey Nobles helps us understand the value of stepping outside of our comfort zone, especially when it’s toward people in a different season of life in order to develop more meaningful connections. We talk about singleness, professional burnout, emotional growth, mental health, life transformation, and the importance of connection - even in the middle of COVID. She really taps into the heart of what Speak Life is all about, encouraging us to find beauty amidst the unexpected and to be willing to embrace the “gray” areas in our lives.

Dave & Taylor Nichols - COVID Reflections (Part III)
Dave and I are picking back up with a discussion on marriage as part of our COVID Reflections mini-season. It's been 16 years of REAL LIFE together. If I'm honest, I thought those years would have better prepared us to handle 2020 with more grace. Instead, the pandemic has highlighted the beautifully messy parts of our relationship and paved the way to continued growth as we evolve both collectively and individually. We hope you find encouragement and hope in knowing that we're in the trenches of married life with many of you. Join us as we talk about how quarantine, working from home, and being together 24/7 has impacted our relationship for better and for worse sharing some of the lessons and tips we've learned along the way.

Rondell Treviño - From 'political polarization to passionate participation'
As many of us hit the polls today, I wanted to do a special episode that highlights the need for unity in such a time as this. Although this is not a political or a religious podcast, it is one dedicated to learning from one another as we navigate tensions in our lives. With that in mind, I felt a heart tug to speak with Rondell Treviño, about the ways we can come together after one of the most divisive elections of our time, as Christians and non-believers alike. Founder and Director of The immigration Coalition, Rondell shares with us his hope and goal to help people from different sides of the aisle come alongside one another through human kindness, shared connection and truth grounded firmly in love.

39: Anita Lakshman - From 'access' to 'acceptance'
We have talked a lot about the tension many have felt in the wake of COVID-19 and today we take that conversation a step further, talking with Anita Lacksman as she shares her family's firsthand experience of contracting COVID-19 at the very beginning of the pandemic. Married to a Doctor, having access to information and resources to support their family, it is a humbling reality to hear just how difficult it was on their family walking through this illness. We also talk about what's been like for Anita, as a woman of color, navigating the social climate that we find ourselves in. We also talk about the role faith plays in either dividing or healing when it comes to racial reconciliation.

38: Dave & Taylor Nichols - COVID reflections (Part II)
Our children’s education has been one of the biggest discussion points for Dave and me amidst COVID. Both of us come from a homeschool background, but we never thought we'd actually homeschool our own kids... And we definitely didn't see ourselves purchasing a school bus! In this conversation, Dave and I talk about our fears, our hopes, and the ultimate decision of taking our children's education into our own hands in order to create the space for needed connection within our family unit.

36: Dave and Taylor Nichols - COVID reflections
Humbling, scary, and downright hard, yet still combined with a mix of tender moments - 2020 has definitely been one for the books. Being that Speak Life is a podcast committed to keeping it “‘real and raw’ it only felt right to “‘go there” with our family's personal COVID experience before asking others to do the same. So, that's exactly how we are kicking off season 4! Reflecting on the lessons, the unexpected gifts, and the chaos surrounding our family’s quarantine experience and beyond!
