Thank you!

It has been a privilege for me to be the creator and host of the Spiritually Minded Women podcast for the past 5 years. I am now pursuing a new path and this podcast has ended. The podcast feed will still be available anywhere you listen to podcasts. I hope to pop into my Instagram page @spirituallymindedwomen from time to time but I will not actively be posting or sharing there. THANK YOU to all of my guests and listeners as you have made this journey something I will always treasure. 

I’m cheering you on!

Hi! I'm Darla

When I was a kid, I always thought I would grow up and then magically, my life would be perfect and my testimony would be solid. I would skip my way down the covenant path to my heavenly home. 


I held onto these beliefs well into adulthood. I thought if I did “all the things”–you know, scripture study, church attendance, family home evening, prayer, temple attendance, etc.–I would have a solid relationship with Christ, know my purpose and never have any problems.


Then my family experienced some major challenges. I was perplexed why we were struggling when we were doing everything “right.” This is when God really started to teach me that my “checklist” for gospel living was not going to get me where He wanted and needed me to go.


Checking boxes wasn’t going to help me know the Savior, help others and become who God wanted me to be. I realized I needed a new approach.


In the thick of a devastating trial, I sought for answers and found  there was a rich and connected spiritual life waiting for me beyond the checklist.


I could pray in a way that made sense to me and actually have two-way communication with God. I could use the covenants I had made to not only know what I needed to do but to also know the great promises God had given me. I could have assurance that my journey on the covenant path, the good and the bad, was made just for me to give me experience and help me return to my  Heavenly Parents. 


There is a spiritual life beyond the checklist that is full of connection, hope and joy. Come join me on the journey!
