We’re switching things up on the podcast, this summer. Each episode will only be about ten minutes long. The first segment will be a “Heart-to-Heart with Martha” where I share encouragement from my heart to yours. The second segment is called, “A Mary Moment for Your Summer,” where I invite a friend to offer a tip to help you have an intentional and fun summer. We hope you enjoy this abbreviated format.

Today’s Guest: Quantrilla Ard is a faith-based personal and spiritual development writer who lives in the DC Metro area with her husband Donny and three littles. She is also an entrepreneur, recent PhD graduate, and curator of all things lovely. As a woman on her own quest of shining a light on the shadowy, hidden places in her life, she writes as The PhD Mamma about things she knows to be true in hopes to encourage others to do the same. Quanny believes in the power in collective strength, community and fellowship. You will find her wherever people are sharing stories of triumph.
Things We Talk About:Here's what your Type A friend needs (but probably won't tell you)... #enneagram #personality Click To Tweet
Three things your Type A friend needs (but probably won’t tell you):
- Your Type A friend needs some reassurance that you see her…not just her accomplishments and not just when she reaches out.
- Your Type A friend needs permission and room to share what’s going on—not the prettied up and polished version—in a safe environment that won’t downplay or dismiss her admissions.
- Your Type A friend needs someone else to take the lead sometimes (only sometimes). Invite her for coffee (and not just so you can tell her what’s going on with you). Send her a card just because. Text her sometime just to tell her you’re thinking about her (help her know she’s important to you).
Here are a few of the questions that Quanny talks about during the show:
- What if the rest you need is exactly what God is providing for you in this season?
- What if life isn’t supposed to look the same anymore?
- What if my new normal is what God intended for life my life all along?
- How can my perspective align with His will?

I thought you had literally stepped into my mind and heart with everything you shared about Martha. That’s been me my whole life. I’m truly the one everyone depends on for everything and with very little response or appreciation in the end. Even my fellow pastor wives who weren’t involved in ministry at all but wound up being the most beloved while I sat exhausted on the side lines. Thank you for opening up your heart to be vulnerable and receptive. Love you❤️
Dear Donna: You are so loved…not for what you do (although ALL that is fantastic) but because of who you are. 🙂
