Given the pace of modern life, it's easy to get caught up in the water hose of life's demands. As women strive to show up meaningfully for everything and everybody we love, it's easy to run ourselves into the ground if we don't learn how to pour into ourselves and balance work with life. In today's episode, I connect with Dr. Caroline Iscovitz. Dr. Caroline holds a doctorate in psychology and has practiced in the marriage and family therapy space for many years. Around five years ago, she transitioned from the mental health field into coaching. Today, she is an entrepreneur coach and wellness consultant dedicated to empowering women to put themselves at the top of the priority list regardless of what they're building in their lives. Dr. Iscovitz focuses on four essential pillars: work-life integration, self-love, boundaries and emotional balance within relationships. She and I discuss why women commonly have trouble prioritizing themselves against a lot of other roles and what happens when we routinely put ourselves at the bottom of the list. Additionally, Dr. Iscovitz shares her favorite tools for working smarter instead of harder, practices to put in place when you have difficulty putting yourself at the top of your own priorities list and a way to communicate in a more proactive way. We would love to know how you plan to incorporate at least one of the core pillars into your life. Share today's episode on Instagram and be sure to tag us - @drcarolineiscovitz and @whitneywoman!

With each new election and primary around the country, it's becoming clear that abortion is going to be a dominate issue in this fall's midterm election. A new survey by the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies, finds 81% of Californians say that it's an important issue for them in this election. The issue itself will be on the ballot here in the form of Proposition 1, which would amend the state constitution to enshrine the right to reproductive choice, specifically abortion and contraception. That IGS poll finds that prop 1 is favored by voters 71 to 18%. That's simply an astounding number. It's rare almost without precedent that we see that level of universal support for anything in California. For more, KCBS Radio political reporter and host of this segment spoke with Cary Franklin, UCLA Law professor.

Terry Looper, CEO of Texon LP, a midstream energy company, tells us that by adopting an employee-first organizational culture, his company saw 32 years of profits! So while it may seem counterintuitive, when Christian leaders put employees before profits, they maximize profits! Sometimes Christ-like leadership seems the opposite of what we need to do to remain competitive, but when we follow God's ways, we always win. If you're an avid listener, you know this approach is true for Bobby, too - when he implemented core values, he saw revenue grow by 500% during a recession! Tune in to hear how making money is a by-product of a Christ-like organizational culture and core values.

With everyone focused on the Colorado Avalanche bringing back their big name free agents like Nazem Kadri and Val Nichushkin, the Avs made their first move of the off season in bringing back a player they acquired at the trade deadline this past season. Andrew Cogliano signed a one year deal for $1.25 million to stay and defend the championship in Denver. We also got word that Erik Johnson, who many thought could take the high road and walk away following a Stanley Cup win, will in fact NOT be doing so. Johnson stated he plans on returning to play the last year on his contract and even hinted that he might play beyond next season. Finally, it's no secret that Val Nichushkin and Darcy Kuemper are high on the priority list for the Avalanche.

Bible Reading: Exodus 20:3; Matthew 22:35-38"Hey, Mom, I'm going over to Robby's to shoot some hoops," called Vincent as he bounded down the porch steps."Hold on, young man," said Mom. "I have some questions for you.""Okay, but make it quick. The guys are waiting," Vincent said as he dribbled up and down the sidewalk. "For starters, could you please hold that ball still for just a minute?" asked Mom. "Have you finished the chore list I gave you this morning?" Vincent twirled the ball on his index finger. "Um, most of it.""Did you do your Bible reading today?" "Aww, Mom. Can't I just play ball with my friends for a while? I'll do that later.""I know you think you'll get to it later, but from what I've seen lately, all you think about is basketball. You're either playing it, reading about it, or watching it.""I think about other things," Vincent retorted. "You make it sound like I worship basketball.""That's an interesting way to word it," Mom said. "Worship can be defined as excessive admiration for someone or something. And basketball seems to be all you care about."Vincent stopped twirling the ball. "I guess that does sound bad." "Playing basketball isn't bad. In fact, I'm glad you've found a sport you really enjoy. However, when it becomes the top priority above everything else, that's not good. The Bible warns us about how easily we can make gods out of things we love instead of worshiping the one true God, who gives us those good things. The first of the Ten Commandments says, 'You shall have no other gods before me.' That means Jesus should be your top priority. He's the one who saved you from sin and gave you eternal life. Basketball may bring you temporary happiness, but only Jesus can give you joy that lasts forever." Vincent looked down at his basketball. He knew his mom was right. He had let basketball become more important than anything else. "I guess you're right," he said. "But it's hard. I want to follow Jesus, but I love playing basketball too."Mom smiled. "You can follow Jesus and love basketball, Vincent. You just need to keep your priorities straight. Enjoy basketball as a gift from Him--but not at the expense of everything else." -Kendra AngleHow About You?What's your top priority? It's easy to let sports, hobbies, or even friends become the most important thing in your life. Those are all things God gave us to enjoy, but none of them should become more important than Him. Jesus loves you, and He knows nothing can fulfill you apart from Him. Enjoy the gifts He's given you, but worship Him alone.Today's Key Verse:Seek first [God's] kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (NIV) (Matthew 6:33 )Today's Key Thought:Put Jesus first
