I use laughter as a coping strategy for life’s messes and this podcast to externally process everything going on in my mind, from books to the zombie apocalypse. Each episode I invite a friend to join me and we discuss hot topics, relationships, faith, trends, books, movies, and the latest developments on important things like Netflix and Twitter. I ask them how they lighten up and how they’re sharing the light in their communities. My goal is for you to feel like you’re sitting in the room with us while we eat Nerds Ropes, cackle hysterically, and solve all the world’s problems.

Customer Reviews


I was recenlty a guest on this show and had so much fun! I have loved the episodes before mine with her guests and the down to earth "real talk" that they have. It's good to hear women be real and vulnerable and this show provides just that!

So funny!

I heard about this podcast from Surviving Sarah and I’m so glad I started listening. Melanie is equal parts hilarious and informative. She is not afraid to share the good, bad, and ugly. And her laugh is AMAZING!!

Like having a podcast bff

I found this podcast after searching for more info on Melanie after I read her intro to the book “Choosing Real”. Her writing made me feel like she was talking to me in real life and was just hilarious. I had made a bff through reading and I wanted to see if there was more material. Through google I found pretty much everything because that’s what google does LOL! The first episode I listened to was the New Years one with her husband and it was so funny to me. Melanie is really funny and does not hold back on how tough married life with kids and then trying to work and find time for yourself is. Listening to the podcasts I don’t feel as “alone” or “awkward” in these moments of life I thought were just unique to mine.
