This is episode 100 of the True Grit and Grace podcast!! Thank you so much for supporting me, listening to the show, sharing it, and getting this podcast to episode 100. I have loved being on this journey with you and creating this show so much and wanted to do a special episode to celebrate this milestone. I’ve been asking my husband Johnny to come on the show as my guest since day 1. And he FINALLY agreed to it for episode 100.

Johnny and I tell the stories of how we met, what our marriage was like before my near-fatal accident, how we got through the most difficult and darkest days of 34 surgeries, and what life has been like for us since it. I’m so grateful to have Johnny as my partner, and I hope you enjoy hearing his perspective of resilience, grit, and grace on this episode. And most of all I hope it leaves you feeling inspired and believing in the power of love!
