EP. 52 | Kate Merrick [Show Up for Your Actual Life]

By |2019-03-26T11:18:28+00:00March 26th, 2019|Podcast|

Do you ever feel like you’re missing out on your one actual life? Your body is coasting through the motions, but distraction and disappointment have crept in, leaving your soul overwhelmed…

Today’s guest at The Messy Table is shaking us conscious with an urgent wake-up call. Six years ago, Kate Merrick said goodbye for now to her 8-year-old daughter, Daisy Love, after a grueling battle with cancer. Yet somehow, someway, Kate is still defiantly full of joy and hope, with an intensified passion to be present—right here, right now.

“Every breath we have is a blessing.” —Kate Merrick

With open arms and a fiery spirit, Kate invites you to show up for your wild and wonderful, messy and maddening, hard and holy life. She also wrote a whole book about it: Here, Now: Unearthing Peace and Presence in an Overconnected World. So grab (or reheat) your coffee, pull up a chair, and join us!
