My Ugly Triggers Became Beautiful Invitations: The Secret to Surrendering with YUMMY Podcast

In this episode, I had the opportunity to share an intimate conversation with Crystal Khalil & Dr. Nicole LaBeach on the YUMMY Podcast - and let me tell you, we peel back layers upon layers of our personal stories, delving deep into themes of childhood, trauma, and the beautiful journey of self-growth.

Join me as I share my own path of self-discovery and healing with Crystal & Dr. Nicole. This conversation isn't just surface-level chit-chat; we'll go straight to the heart of what it means to be human. You'll see the power of feeling your emotions and embracing your true self shining through as we navigate this emotional terrain together.

We'll also explore how the lessons I've learned in one area of life can be beautifully transferred to another, emphasizing the need for evolution and adaptation as circumstances change. This episode challenges the notion of being "stuck" and encourages you to take action and evolve. Are you truly stuck, or are you just resisting the winds of change? Join me and my guest on this soul-stirring exploration of personal growth and transformation.



  • Seeking validation from others can be counterproductive for you
  • Recognizing the ever-presence of God and understanding your own journey
  • Revisiting your past experiences and traumas is also a way for healing
  • Always appreciate the present moments with your children
  • You can't be everything to someone
  • Negative emotions from childhood can deeply impact your life
  • Ugly triggers are invitations for change and transformation



"When the people don't realize what I didn't realize is healed is not healed with an -ED. If you looking for an outcome on your journey, you've done it all wrong. It's simply about surrender. Over and over and over again." - Jessica Hurley

"This is what I heard God say, clear as day, "Don't you go looking for another single stranger to help until you use these resources to help your son." - Jessica Hurley

"One of the things that is so YUMMY is when you figure out the thing that you've been fearing forever is blessing you." -Dr. Nicole Labeach

"Part of my work is to realize that even though I did the best I could. It may have not been enough and there's still work that has to be done." - Crystal Khalil
