When we asked you, our podcast listeners, what you'd like to hear about when it comes to midlife, one topic stood above the rest: menopause. Our bodies are changing, often in ways we never knew they could or would, and we don't know what to do. The sisterhood is the perfect place to come for questions you might not want to ask anywhere else. We bring you trusted experts and this conversation is no different.

For this widely requested topic, we couldn't ask just anyone to join us, we needed to find the best. And we did in OB-Gyn Dr. Carol Peters-Tanksley. She has lived through menopause herself and has guided women over decades through "the change." She covers everything from weight gain to mood swings, hot flashes to hormone surges. You will not only learn a ton (we did!) you will be encouraged that what you are going through is a normal part of human development.

If you are experiencing the classic signs of menopause, are wondering what's ahead, or simply want to know what the fuss about estrogen supplements is, this episode is worth your time. We can't change aging, but we can have a better sense of what's actually happening in our bodies. Dr. Carol is a knowledgeable guide who anticipates our questions before we even ask them. Nothing says sisterhood like this.

Do you find yourself navigating a marriage in midlife? There are unique challenges that couples face in this time of life.

Maybe you’ve been married a long time and are needing a fresh way to navigate old patterns. Or maybe you are struggling to stay married and wonder about your future as a couple. Or maybe you simply desire to bring life and joy back as a couple. Wherever you find yourself, this episode is for you.

Jimmy and Irene Rollins are no strangers to difficulty in marriage. As pastors of a large church, they seemed to have it all together from the outside. But on the inside they were crumbling. Irene was battling alcohol addiction, and Jimmy was struggling with overeating and pornography. They became comfortable with disfunction.

Now healed and whole, as individuals and as a couple, Jimmy and Irene lead a couples ministry to people all over the world. They honestly share about what turned their marriage around and how each one of us can do the same. There is wisdom sprinkled all throughout this episode. Don’t miss this one!

We are kicking off a new series on the podcast this week! We are calling it Midlife is No Joke.

Because midlife brings responsibilities from many directions. It also brings lots of change. These combined can act as a pressure cooker of stress, or at least an uncharted path as we respond to changing roles, relationships, and responses (ours and others.)

Dr. Kelly Flanagan is a clinical psychologist turned fiction author who explores the big questions of life in both areas of work. His experience "sitting in the chair", as he calls it, along with his own midlife journey, offers the sisterhood insights about the common questions many of us face as we realize we are no longer young and we still have some years of life left.

Who am I as my roles change? Where am I headed? Is there pain involved in this new change? How do I discern God's path for me? These are not light questions and Dr. Kelly gives us some approaches on how to listen to our responses in our heads and bodies as we confront these bigger questions.

We've got a lot to cover about midlife over the next several weeks, and we are diving in headfirst with the big questions because we all have them.
