Feathers Season 2 Episode 11 with Elise Hurd Part I [Podcast]


In this episode, I chat with Elise Hurd.

As a stay at home mom of four exuberant young daughters, Elise’s life is full of words! Needs! Feelings! Thoughts! Meals! Messes! Noise! And *lots* of seeking Jesus to stay sane through it all.

Elise and her husband, Jason, are also live-in full-time caretakers for Jason’s Dad, who has advanced Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Elise is the Children’s ministry director at her home church, part-time web developer, and the artist and shop owner of her family’s online store, Little Lunch Maker. She recently realized that the sickness she’s been feeling is because a new little one is the way, arriving sometime in June next year!

You can learn more about Elise’s journey growing in Christ and her family from her personal blog, The Giving Place.


TRIGGER WARNING: sexual abuse.

In Part I of her story, Elise Hurd shares the story of finding out her young daughter had been sexually abused. She shares her response and the ways in which God began bringing about positive change in her heart as she obeyed His word and leading.

  1. Hi, Amy. I’m new to Feathers, but absolutely love Elise! She has been such an encouragement to me. Thank you for sharing her story. I’ll be sticking around to hear Part two and browsing through to see what I’ve missed!

  2. Thanks Elise for sharing your testimony. Anxiety is the culprit behind some physical issues I am wrestling with. Been looking for some direction and I loved your humility exercise. Plan on making this a daily part of my life. God bless you.
