#91 - Dennis Modry - 'When Freedom is at Stake'
The first time I heard Dennis Modry speak, I immediately wanted him on my podcast. Tracking him down was no easy feat, but I was determined and he obliged! Dennis has been an opponent to lockdowns and mandates since basically day one. He’s been active in politics, working with both our current leaders and many from the past. He’s also a retired heart surgeon, so his perspective from both the medical and political realm is exactly what the doctor ordered. Dennis has a wealth of knowledge and experience as a leader in the fight for our rights, both personally and professionally. I learned so much in just this one conversation, I didn’t want it to end. So listen in and be sure to share this one with others. Facts like these shouldn't stay hidden.

#90 - Stephenie Smith - 'Why We Say No'
It's good to have reasons behind why you believe the things you do. Over the past few months we’ve heard various perspectives on how the C-virus has been affecting individuals. We've discussed personal stories, presented evidence, and discussed disagreements. On today's show my guest Stephenie Smith and I talk over why she’s against the mandates. Stephenie is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor and has been studying for a degree at a local college. She has been backed into a corner over these mandates and recently wrote a letter to our federal and provincial governments detailing how they are violating not only her rights and freedoms, but those of everyone in this nation. She represents thousands of college students who feel the same way. Let’s hear her story.

I was inspired by our conversation and I trust you will be too. So grab a warm mug and listen in. Merry Christmas!

#88 - Aaron Kauffman - 'Discussing Differences'
You don't need me to tell you that we live in divisive times. Even before the pandemic, things were getting rough, but now it seems even harder to discuss topics we differ on. Aaron Kauffman is a pastor, father, and friend of mine. However, he and I disagree on some of the finer points on the vax and the church's response. And while we do touch on that a bit, today we're mostly here to discuss how we should interact and react to those we disagree with. It's a good conversation to have, so please listen in and be civil in the comments.

#87 - Murry Hellekson - 'Do Your Research'
I want to make sure people know the facts. Right now, if you look at popular media, you might think that the vaccines are safe and reliable. Sadly, that's not entirely true. Murry Hellekson decided to get the jab earlier this year. Shortly thereafter he suffered massive side effects he didn't even know were possible. Now he's doing his best to spread his story and make sure people are making informed decisions. So please, take a moment to listen to his story. Reactions like this are more common than you might think.

#83 - Jason Rand - 'Changing Careers'
Life is constantly changing. In times like this, the prospect of needing to change your entire career is all too real for many canadians. This choice, no matter the reasoning, can seem daunting, for many reasons. My husband, Jason, recently made the choice to switch careers. He went from being a high school teacher/Principal, to working on the oil patch. A big switch for our family and our lifestyle. So today Jason is here to talk about why it seems so hard to switch careers, what excuses we may have to not do so, and the benefits of the change.

#82 - Pam Van De Spiegle - 'Vaccination Confrontation'
Covid mandates are getting out of control. This isn't a stretch and sadly you can meet many people who have been discriminated against based holy on their stance on covid and the vaccines. I for one, have been hearing a lot of heartbreaking stories. On This week's episode we're hearing one such story from a friend of mine Pam Van De Spiegle. Pam has been hesitant to tell her story, but has come to the conclusion that it needs to be told. People need to know that this kind of thing is happening, in Canada, and more often than we would like to think.
