Episode 4, Jill Baughan

“It’s possible to find joy, even in tough times. We just have to be intentional about drawing from the joy that walks alongside the sorrow and disappointment in our lives.”  Jill Baughan

In this episode with podcaster Jill Baughan, we discuss what she is uniquely gifted to help us do: to find and savor joy in the hard places. It may sound like something impossible to you right now but listen in as Jill shares concrete steps to take along with stories that prove you too can do this with success. She even explains how to capture special moments to enjoy them over, and over again.

Plus, Jill demonstrates how to redeem an opportunity and retrieve a joy moment you missed in the past. It will look different for each of us, but if we are seeking joy, God may just provide an occasion to re-capture it.

Even if you are in a difficult place today, well, especially if you are, join us for inspiration, encouragement, and a dose of joy to lift your spirit. Along with me, you may even laugh out loud a time or two. Did I mention the chicken suit or the chimp?

“And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10b

About Jill Braughan

Jill Baughan is an author and speaker who, through adventure and play, helps people find joy, no matter what else is happening – good, bad, or ugly – in life. Born in Bluffton, Indiana, she learned to laugh and throw up at the same time while riding the Tilt-A-Whirl at the annual Bluffton Street Fair. Early on in life she was diagnosed with an acute form of adultaphobia (fear of entering the Land of Responsible Adulthood). This manifested itself most poignantly when, for many years, she went kicking and screaming from one stage of life to the next, ever concerned that now she would have to start behaving like a grownup.

As a frequent speaker Jill’s message has touched hundreds of people at retreats, civic organizations, church groups, women’s ministries. and businesses. Leaders look to Jill as someone who can inspire their audiences with humor, depth, and wisdom.

Jill spent a lot of years as an English instructor at Virginia Commonwealth University before she decided to take all that fun stuff and adventure on the road.  She and her husband, Ben, live near Richmond, Virginia.
