SUMMARY

Sunny talks about her struggle with chronic illness and her journey toward healing. She talks about marriage and also what it's like to live life in the public eye after marrying retired NFL football player Jordan Shipley and co-hosting a TV show on the Outdoor Channel.

Sunny and I also talk about grief and loss, as Sunny lets us peek in on what it was like to lose her older sister in a freak accident, on Sunny's 13th birthday.

I so admire Sunny's courage in talking about painful subjects, in the hopes that some other women may be pointed toward Jesus, the true and only "lifter of our heads."

We bounce all over the place in this convo, but you're gonna love this girl and her adorable Texas country accent ;-) 

Oh and fun fact - Sunny also co-wrote the hit country song Oh Tonight with Josh Abbott (and is currently working on her own album)!

Annnndddd we're cousins (by marriage), so I'm basically famous too.
