This week we discuss curve balls that life consistency throws at you. One of the biggest curveballs you can face is a loved one attempting to commit suicide. Join us as we have a very heartfelt discussion, and explore our own experience with suicide. We’ve learned from very personal experience that it affects everyone in the family.


Show highlights:



  • Fun curveballs - Starting something new

  • The challenge of learning something new - bridges aren’t built in a day

  • Learning how to handle the unexpected “curve balls” of low

  • Two people very close to us trying to hurt themselves even trying to commit suicide

  • The assumption they are doing it to hurt others.

  • Judie’s struggle with depression - not able to control internal anger and irritability

  • Feeling like you failed as a parent

  • Get outside help - therapy, counseling, direction

  • Jody’s first experience with suicide - the death of his uncle

  • We have to be willing to have the discussion

  • There may be accusations, self-doubt and guilt

  • Extend the arm of love not a fist

  • Some can’t fathom they are worthy of love

  • We need to be gentle, kind, patient and full of grace to each other
