Merry everything and happy always! We made it. Through the joy and the stress and the family drama. And now we get to look forward to 2019. And there's something about it. It just feels like it's going to be a good year. And I'm stoked to end 2018 with this interview. Jenipher Lyn and I met online in a group Michelle Ward created years ago called the When I Grow Up Clubhouse. In 2013 (ish) I ran an online class for the Christian season of Lent called Be and asked Jen to teach a week of the course. Over time, we began to realize that we had a lot in common (like tons of anxious energy and a passion for creating something bigger than ourselves) and began to Skype every few weeks. The rest, I guess, is history. In this episode, we talk about finding our purpose, oversharing, and the annoying need to make it work as workaholic passion people. Jen shares vulnerably about intense anxiety she had while she was pregnant and what running a business looks like after having a baby. We talk about how we gained confidence as moms and as humans.

040 Saving The World One Doodle At a Time with Jenipher Lyn
The Couragemakers Podcast | Encouragement, Inspiration & Rebel Rousing for Mission Driven Doers, Makers & Shakers |
Happy Monday Couragemakers! I am so excited to share with you this week’s episode of Couragemakers! For this week’s episode, I’m speaking to the wonderful Jenipher Lyn. Jenipher a self-taught artist who is on a mission to save the world one doodle at a time. She who believes the more genuine encouragement in the world, the better and her goal in life is to inspire as many girls and women that they are not alone. Jenipher can be found drawing and eating cupcakes in the middle of Florida with husband and giant cat, Baby. I found Jenipher through her doodles and am so happy to get to know Jenipher as a person. In this episode, Jenipher shares the story behind her art, how being a writer or an artist isn’t how many people make it look online and how struggling with anxiety, depression and loneliness has influenced her life and her mission. Oh, and also what her ideal weird superpower would be. We really dive into the importance of imperfection, and how the online world sometimes deceives us, the struggles we often face as creative women and how we all need more mess, encouragement and cookies in our lives. Jenipher shares fantastic advice for anyone going through a hard time, gives a great insight into how her creative process has changed along the way and how she protects her own sanity as a highly sensitive person. Jenipher is wonderful and I absolutely loved every bit of our conversation. We had such a good laugh and her approach to life is simply contagious. This episode is full of so much hope, joy and truth and I know you’re going to love this episode! Enjoy the show!

Jenipher's definition of success:"ultimately for me, money is part of it but it's not the success term for me - i would rather do something I love and make less money and eat more pasta and peanut butter and jelly than do something that isn't true to myself."Things we chat about with Jenipher: life not being perfect rejection can help make you successful what you do VS what you really want to do how stubbornness, creativity and her unwillingness to fail help her to keep going how she allows herself to spend time on non-work related tasks/projects books Jenipher mentions: Sarah Dessen & Lisa Congdon
