I invite you to join me for an engaging interview with Mishael Porembski, Author of 180 Your Life. I had the opportunity to interview Mishael at the Christian Bookseller Association Unite 2017 conference in Cincinnati, OH. Mishael Porembski is a 20-year network news veteran and Southeastern Emmy Award winning documentarian. Mishael used her journalism skills to interview and compile a winning team of experts – Bethany Rutledge, Ilana Katz, MS, RD, CCSD and Dr. Bridget Heneghan – along with detailed research, providing a fresh, healthy approach to grief recovery. Tested by the real-life widows of Mishael’s nonprofit, Team Lady 180, the principles of 180 Your Life were gleaned from the experience and success of bereaved women who decided to become a team with a common goal, train body mind and spirit, and create triumph in their lives by crossing a finish line and helping others.
Takeaways from my interview with Mishael Porembski
- Tragedy doesn’t define you; Your Choices in the Tragedy are what define you
- What the Hay-Ho I have used this several times since 🙂
- Don’t be that sad person.
- Make the next best decision
- Team – Train – Triumph
- The enemy plays unfair; make good choices to combat him
- When you cannot understand God’s hand; trust His heart
- PTG – Post Traumatic Growth
- If you are going to go through grief you might as well do it well
