You Have the Ability to Go from Nothing to Something Amazing

Fatima Oliver is a wife, mother of four boys, an author, and an extreme lover of chocolate. The loss of her first child was the epitome of heartbreak. She felt like a tremendous failure to her husband and as a woman. When her marriage ended she felt bamboozled as though life was one big joke at her expense. Have you ever felt that way?

Fatima Oliver

Both tragedies taught Fatima how unfair life can be but also exposed an opportunity for faith to carry her. 

Fatima has embraced self-discovery and acceptance by challenging insecurity, anxiety, and depression from childhood trauma, heartbreak, and physical abuse. The result brought tremendous breakthroughs in her life and helped cultivate some baby steps she shares with others.

  • We are not meant to do life alone. Everyone needs a safe place to fall.
  • It is critical to change a victim mentality to a victory mindset - here is how
  • Accepting hard truths is essential
  • Releasing people from great expectations is a path to forgiveness


During Fatima's interview, she will give you the key steps for your soul healing journey and give you the strength to continue:

Fatima is offering a bonus for anyone listening to this interview - a 20-minute "Safe Place” session, where you are able to share what's on your heart, uninterrupted. There is great power in being heard and what is shared stays in this safe space. 


Fatima Oliver

The Prescription is in the Dirt is a bold, funny, illuminating, and sometimes hard-to-swallow inspirational memoir, that embraces the journey to self-love and acceptance. It served as an extension of freedom and therapy while writing it and is now used to lift the voices of those considering their own soul journey.


Speaking the truth in love is not just powerful when it is towards others. It is even more impactful when it is used for self-reflection. Waiting on loved ones to grow, was wasting time I could be using to mature myself. I needed to start participating in the change that was happening in my life instead of reacting to it all the time. This meant releasing unrealistic expectations for people to live up to, and accepting them right where they are. Then, peacefully detached myself from any future scenarios that did not respect my growth.

"For years I believed love meant suffering from someone unconditionally. Love is long-suffering but it is also gentle - not a host of emotional and mental torment. But hurt people hurt people. 

This truth does not lose its value based on who is dishing out the offense. This is why some people should be loved from across the street. I am thankful for the route I had to take to learn these life lessons. Trudging through discomfort and down-right tragedies helped me to find my identity. 

My pain exposed God’s grace. My fears exposed His protection. And the rejection I encountered by those I loved the most, revealed his undying love for me. Our behavior is a reflection of our freedom, and I was bound for most of my life, waiting for someone to come and do for me what I was unwilling to do for myself."

Fatima Oliver


"I Said What I Said"  is a raw account of what happened when someone who never wanted kids fall in love and have four....BOYS. There is raw truth laced with gut-busting laughter, all in the name of love. Fatima tackles generational habits that can gravely influence the parent-child relationship. Although humorous at times, there are definitely lessons that can be captured from this intriguing novel.

Your Attitude, Drive, and Enthusiasm Can Take You Further Than Your Talents


Lori Vober suffered a massive intracerebral hemorrhagic
stroke at age 29, which left her paralyzed on the left side. After a two-month stay in the hospital where she had two brain surgeries, she returned home and her husband lost his job in the aviation industry due to the effects of 9/11.  A cross-country move was necessary while Lori was still in a wheelchair.  Lori developed epilepsy from the stroke and lost more independence.

Seven years later Lori and her husband were able to adopt three siblings, a journey filled with both blessings and challenges. 

Lori's interview was both inspiring and challenging. You will love hearing her story:


Life Rarely Turns Out Exactly as You Pictured it

We All Face Challenges Along the Way

God always has a plan.

But He leaves it up to you whether you follow His plan or not

Life is about CHOICES

Lori Vober chose to depend on God's faithfulness through all life's challenges

  • Everyone has doubts about their own abilities, but God has a plan
  • Believe in Him - Don't give up
  • Your attitude, drive, and enthusiasm can take you further than your talents
  • Find happiness in who God says you are
  • Do not allow someone else to define your happiness

If You Have Been Broken, Do You Know How To Move Forward?

Kate Wallinga spent her professional life in the fields of mental health

and criminal justice, before breaking her back and being put on

permanent disability in 2014. She has worked in the fields of

correctional psych, forensic psych, and crisis assessment.

Kate studied criminal justice and mental health counseling and worked

in the New Hampshire State Prison system, locked psychiatric facilities,

and several emergency rooms.

Ignorance Was Bliss

In 2010, Kate had a near-death experience, which led to her being

housebound for a year. In 2014, Kate broke her back and had to

leave her career. In 2019, Kate's father died by suicide. She has

battled health issues including epilepsy and deafness. But, as she

will share today, although broken, Kate moved forward and she

will show you how to as well - no matter what you have gone


After accepting the necessity of leaving her preferred career, Kate

spent a few years moping, then started listening to podcasts. She loves

true crime genre and soon realized this is what she wanted to do - to

connect with and share other people's stories.

In her interview, she shares her incredible story and how she became a

story-teller, a story-collector, and a.....herder of cats.

Kate Wallinga

Podcasting seemed the logical next step after Kate worked in the fields of

forensic and correctional psychology, and crisis assessment.

Ignorance Was Bliss is a show about how we become who we are and 

making just about anything sound normal - from PTSD to podcasting to 

serial murder. It is about people's stories.

This podcast is about how we become who we are - about making 

just about anything sound normal. Over time, the focus of the show 

has widened to include the normal, the average, the ordinary, that 

all of us can understand...but we continue to think of ourselves as 

somehow messed up, weird, wrong. 

We're not.

You're not.

How Would you Cope if Told Your Child has Severe Multiple Disabilities?

Vickie Rubin was 24 years old and about to deliver her first child – she also had chicken pox. So begins the story of a first-time mom who learns her infant daughter has severe, multiple disabilities. Facing the challenges of caring for her daughter, marriage struggles, and the question of having more children, Vickie Rubin gives a glimpse into the world of her family and transformation while Raising Jess.

Vickie holds a master’s degree in Exceptional Education from SUNY Buffalo State College. Before writing her book, she was the director of the Early Childhood Direction Center and is experienced in working with professionals and families of children with special needs.


Vickie transformed from a young mom with no experience to a well-known regional advocate for families and children with special needs.

“When Jessica was young Vickie experienced many panic attacks. I had three children under the age of five, one who needed total assistance and had complex medical issues. Our financial situation was difficult and I was unable to work because my daughter needed so much care. I ALWAYS felt helpless when Jessica experienced a seizure, I admit that my go-to was panic. Fortunately, my husband was calm, cool-headed when Jess had seizures.”

Her interview and her book will delight you and make you want to hear more of her story. It is a must-listen for anyone who has felt like giving up and anyone who has a child with special needs. And….why every family needs to do an exit interview -- what's that?

UPDATE in Newsweek:  Our Daughter Has a Disability. 

We Transformed Her Life with One Change! Read here


Vickie Rubin, M.S. Ed is the author of  Raising Jess: A Story of Hope, the powerful story of one family’s survival when faced with adversity. Written with compassion, honesty, and humor, it tells of a family changed forever by the birth of a child with special needs, and their courageous decision to choose hope. This beautiful, gripping memoir will delight and leave you wanting more.  

One grandparent's review: "I am the father of a grown daughter with a nine-year-old child with special needs similar to Jess. My daughter and I read your book at the same time and found we were constantly laughing, comparing stories, and being amazed at the similarities in their lives and ours. It opened up many conversations allowing us to share our feelings that until then were unspoken." 

Vickie’s Views is a hopeful, humorous, inspiring commentary about various topics, including raising a child with a disability, observations of everyday life, family, marriage, plus navigating the world of COVID-19. She started writing the blogs in March 2020, about the same time we were all told: DON’T LEAVE THE HOUSE!  

Vickie loves to write and has published numerous essays in her local newspaper, The Buffalo News.


Vickie’s Mom nagged/motivated her to write a book, and her excuses were, “I have three kids, a full-time job – who has time to write a book!"  But then she retired. Still overwhelmed by the task she had boxes of Jessica's notes and journals and she wrote about Jess’ incredible journey from the perspective of a mom who never, ever gave up hope.
