Show Notes

Today, I'm chatting with the fabulous Jen Hardy. She is the voice behind the podcast Fabulous Over 50 and the creative genius behind the wildly popular Jen Hardy Show on YouTube with her shower thoughts. If you're into true crime or curious about our justice system, check out her series Voices of Justice, where she dives into the stories behind the gavel.

Jen is a true beach girl. After receiving a life-threatening health diagnosis, she knew that she and her family needed the healing power of the beach. So Jen, her husband, and their seven kids moved from Tennessee to an island paradise off the coast of Florida. In this episode, you'll hear about her journey to the Sunshine State, her life on a coastal island, and the profound healing she's experienced since making the beach her forever home.
