Episode Summary

Do you have a plan or a timeline of how you want the events in your life to unfold? Do you ever imagine what the next part of your life will look like? Jill Olish, today’s podcast guest, did both of those as she went through life. Listen to this episode to hear Jill and Linda talk about:

  • Growing up attending a private Christian school versus the public school in her community
  • Going to college and having to learn about life outside of her private school bubble
  • Meeting her husband and outlining what she wanted her life to look like
  • Transitioning into motherhood and experiencing different kinds of trauma as it unfolds

Linda and Jill discuss many different childhood memories as well as more recent stories of how Jill became the wife and mother she is today. While imagining the next part of your life can be helpful, sometimes it does not prepare you fully for something you are yet to experience.

This episode has now been transformed into a chapter of its very own inside the book series Stories with a Sunday Roast. It weaves together the memories that were shared during the podcast conversations with my personal experiences.

Unlike the podcast, the carefully crafted stories and mouth-watering descriptions of roasty meals will transport you to another level as you turn the pages. To continue with more stories in book format, visit for all the details about the Stories with a Sunday Roast series today.
