About Us

Rise Up Women podcast is all about empowerment, encouragement, hope, inspiration, and betterment of ourselves.

Hearing stories of other women who have gone through similar experiences can encourage and inspire us to take the necessary steps to get out of toxic situations and aim to not just survive but

Episode #11 - "It's been a Wild Ride!" with Melinda Kunst (second half)

Hey there! This is the short second half of the interview with Melinda Kunst! To be honest with you, I hesitated to publish this episode. I was not sure if I should even share my story though it came up during the interview. Melinda, being the strong & encouraging woman she is, inspired me to just publish unedited. So here it is! Just wanted to give you a heads up - we talk about sexual abuse - subtle, but indeed is sexual abuse when we are forced to do things we don't want to do. Even though we have a choice to say no, we are afraid of consequences that follow (most of the time, end in violence or harsh verbal abuse or belittling etc.) We also talk about my experience with the attorney - frustrating experience, I might add. Melinda shared what you could do on your own as well. Once again, I’d like to warn you that as we discuss her abuse experience, this episode might trigger some of you. If so, you may stop listening, take a deep breath, and remind yourself of all the blessings a...

Episode 010 - "But I still Felt Bad For Him" with Melinda Kunst

Hey there, thank you for visiting and listening to the Rise Up Women Podcast, Episode #10! This is an interview with Melinda Kunst, a mom, a wife, a survivor of child abuse and domestic abuse, also a blogger, and an author of Rising from the ashes, and call me master. When she shared with me that she felt that God was calling her to share her story, her pain and struggles, I immediately identified with her as I felt the same! WE were both afraid to share our stories and even looked away but God kept speaking to us and encouraging us to share our stories. One day it dawned on both of us, this is much bigger than our fear! It is not about us, it is about how our stories could touch someone and give someone courage to leave and take their power back. It is our mission! Once again, my conversation with Melinda went just a bit long, so this is the first part of our conversation with her just so you know that the ending might feel like it was cut off awkwardly. In this episode, she shares...

Episode 009 - "Best is Yet to Come!" with Nicole Mattson

Hey there, Thank you so much for tuning in! For this week's episode I have decided to interview my good friend, Nicole Mattson. As I was preparing to publish another podcast episode which was supposed to be a solo show, something just prompted me to have Nicole on the podcast. I originally asked her to talk about parenting from the teacher’s point of view, but I believe it was the Holy Spirit’s prompt that led her to share the story about her deceased son Tyler. Several years ago, she moved from Western Colorado where she taught my children to Indiana. Ever since, we have been talking about having her over so our boys and she could climb another 14-ers. ( Mountains taller than 14, 000 ft) which they have done several times before. That finally came true and was visiting us when I decided to interview her for the Rise Up Women Podcast. She is the mother of 4 children, Jamie Mattson, Coty Day, Seth Day, and the deceased Tyler Day. She has been an educator for over 20 years and has a...

Episode 007 - "I Didn't Want My Daughter To Go Through the Same Thing." with Kylie Ota

Thank you for tuning into the Rise Up Women Podcast, episode 007, my interview with Kylie Ota. I'm super excited that you're here and so appreciate that you're taking the time to listen to this podcast! Today's podcast is an interview with my newly acquired friend, Kylie Ota. She's a transformational coach, also called a love coach, who helps single moms to be ready to find love again and have healthy loving relationships. In this episode, she shares her story of how first two marriages ended up, how she found out later on, after the fact, that her son was also being abused. She also shares that she was at one point, so helpless that she wanted to commit suicide and what helped her gather her strength to fight back. We talked a lot about how domestic violence not only affects us, women, but also children in such traumatic ways. There are so many good points in this interview, but the take away message here is "Don't wait, leave!" if you are in an abusive situation. God does not want...

Episode 006 Despite all the struggles, choose joy with Celia Dye

Hello, Welcome to the Rise Up Women Podcast, episode #6!! It’s me, Miki Sturges! I had a privilege of interviewing Celia Dye, she’s a domestic violence survivor and a thriver! She was a teenager when she first got into a violent relationship. At age 17, she experienced her first domestic violence relationship which involved with physical, verbal and emotional abuse. She had to drop out of college because of this situation. Then at age 21, she got married and had a child despite all the medical conditions she struggled with. Her marriage ended due to emotional and verbal abuse by her now ex-husband. She did not want her daughter to grow up in such an abusive house-hold. (This sounds familiar!) Then she went back to college and stayed in college regardless of what was going on with her life. At one point, she was hit by a drunk driver and ended up with traumatic brain injury and also found herself with a completely unrelated deadly mass in her head and she had to step out of the col...
