My guest for The Happy Hour # 223 is Julianna Zobrist. Julianna is an author, speaker, music artist, fashion muse, social media influencer, and wife of Chicago Cubs World Series MVP Ben Zobrist. Zobrist has performed at numerous charity and professional events nationwide, and has been featured in Forbes, PARADE, CBS, and Sports Illustrated. She divides her time between Nashville and Chicago, traveling through life with her husband and three kids.

Julianna starts off telling us the crazy (and I mean crazy!) story of how her husband's team won the World Series, they unexpectedly had to move, she released a single, and her baby was born pretty much all at the same time. We talk about her journey of discovering what it truly means to be created in the image of God, and how that has transformed her entire perspective on life.

Julianna and I then talk about how we all have the tendency to deny or hide who we are, and can tie our identity to something or someone. I loved hearing her speak about how we need to stop apologizing for who we are, and stand confidently in our identity in God. In the last part of the show, we get to hear about life on the road for Julianna and her family, and how they set boundaries and fight for quality time.

{You can listen to the show HERE, and make sure you never miss a Happy Hour by subscribing through your favorite podcast app (ie. iTunes, Stitcher).  And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends!}
