Every week I bring you The Free Her Spirit Podcast. It’s where I get to talk about one of my favorite subjects: Feminine Spirituality.
Join me every Tuesday for interviews and personal narratives from women in all walks of life, including my own. Feminism meets the Divine. We are here to celebrate, we are here to share, we are here to bring more understanding and love into the world. Welcome!
Paula Jenkins is the host of Jump Start Your Joy, creator of Jump Start Your Podcast, and a life coach focused on transforming lives. She received her Master of Arts in Religion from Yale Divinity School. From working one on one with coaching clients, to writing, and hosting a weekly podcast, she is dedicated to bringing more joy into the world. Her purpose and her work all dance with the transformative nature of joy, even when we are faced with hard times and difficult questions. Paula is motivated by the words of Henri Nouwen: “Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.” She makes her online home at www.jumpstartyourjoy.com
Paula is such an amazing mix of humor and knowledge. I loved this conversation with her about the descent of the soul and her own personal stories of experiences with the Divine. Paula shares the deeply powerful story of the birth of her son and how the Divine reached out to her. In this episode I also got to share some of my story (working with my Shadow which I’ve written about here). I tend to ramble when I try speaking but I still think it’s good stuff.
You can connect with Paula on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. Also be sure to check out Jump Start Your Podcast course if you’re interested in learning how to start your own podcast! (There should be a new course starting in the Fall.)

Next week I have another fantastic interview with Sophia Rose of La Abeja Herbs! I can’t wait to share it with you. In the meantime, don’t forget to sign up for my mailing list (and claim your free copy of my Spiritual Type Quiz)!
ps.- About the Spiritual Type Quiz. I believe there are as many ways to be spiritual as there are people but most of the time growing up we’re only presented with one particular way of being spiritual. The quiz I’ve created is quick and gives you a personal combination of 3 ways (types) that you can connect with the Divine, as well as suggested books, teachers, and practices to try. I hope you like it!
