It’s Okay to Be Weak, It’s Okay to Be Broken

Today I sit down with Crystalina Evert and chat about, well, a lot! We discuss the joys and struggles of motherhood, the cross that NFP can be, and how therapy has blessed Crystalina and may bless you too.

Enjoy!

        She is in a buda stage and we do love her and talk about our faith but do we accept the way she is living ? She’s into life and being in natures

    Being un organized for a period of time is actually good!! It’s an opportunity to grow, it make us grow, so embrace it , don’t worry Crystalina.
    I loved being pregnant, blessed with two awesome ones from start to end. I felt fullfilled and joyful being pregnant. You don’t need jewelry nor make up, your face glows! I think all women looks beautiful when they are pregnant!
    It is super good to have routines and structure, keep them and have your moments to rebcharge with the Lord.
    I did a lot of EWTN with kids, they love it growing up, enjoyed praying and singing with me.
    The awesome thing about having more than 4 kids is that it becomes like a little “clan” where they look after each other and do it all together, giving you and Jason less to follow up or do, enjoy it! It doesn’t happens with only two:)
    Regarding NFP, I’ve cant agree with you more, I proof how amazing it is. Never taken a pill in 39 years and I had the two babies my Lord told me @ 15 through a dream: Camila ~ helper of God ~ & Mateo~ gift of God~
    14 years later, His perfect plan! He is an awesome God!!
    I also nurse my two babies until 18 months Crystalina, the best BOND “GOLD” with your babies!
    I just want to say Congrats Crystalina & Jason. I absolutely command you for the example you are and for the great work you do with teens! They need it so much!!!
    I teach to 1st year of Confirmation with the *CHOSEN* program _that I love_ , and I work at High Schools. I would love to be able to talk to my HS students in public school about chastity, abstinence, NFP vrs contraceptives. Share the Truth with them‼️
    God bless you all ✨9✨‼🌟🔥🌟🙏🏻✨🙌🏼

    Hello Cameron,

    You might not remember me, but I am the woman you spoke with on the phone when you cut your finger! Just so you know, I didn’t think you were making some kind of excuse. Haha! I was legitimately worried for you. I remember wanting to help you in some way, but all I could get out before you hung up was something like, “I…umm…I’ll pray for you!!” Haha!

    I’m glad that you are alright! Thank you for calling me back and introducing me to your podcast! It’s been super healing in my life. I’ve been telling all the women at the NET Center that they need to listen to your podcast.

    Love what your doing! Thank you so much for sharing your gift of gab!!

    I just listened to this last night and just loved it.

    I heard your podcast with the guest who has anxiety and I am not kidding…we are the same person. I don’t like doing yoga either because it makes me anxious that I’m doing something wrong. Lol so I just really enjoyed hearing from someone like me.

    I also heard Crystalina as a guest on the Momnipotent videos, and loved what she said (very similar to what you all talked about in this podcast). It made me realize I NEED to go to counseling and listen to that prompting I’ve been getting from the Holy Spirit.

    Listening to this encouraged me to attend a silent retreat next month so I can get some real one on one time with Jesus and hopefully start my healing process from anxiety and as I begin to look in to counseling.

    So, THANK YOU! I love your podcast and this one especially really touched my heart.

    PS I wish I could have met you at SEEK! I’m in San Antonio and attended some of the sessions with my husband.

  7. I love love loved this episode!

    It made me wonder if you could do an episode specifically on being a “ministry wife”? My husband doesn’t travel nearly as much as yours and Crystallina’s but he’s working 7 days a week to allow me to stay home with our kiddos and taking on extra music gigs (as a worship leader) often. Would love to hear more tips about surviving the long hours and how staying home with the kids while your husband (publicly) witnesses is a ministry in and of itself.

    Thanks for all you do with this podcast! It is such a blessing.
