Life got you down? What if you could laugh anyway? Christian comedian Tracy DeGraaf (along with her bff Cathrine) will drop weekly episodes (Wednesdays) on topics you care about like how your marriage can survive your husband’s loud chewing, how you can laugh about your kids driving you nuts, and how to scoff off those lady whiskers and not worry about your Howdy Doody sleep wrinkle. Tracy and Cathrine have been next door neighbors and besties for over 20 years. They survived the Great Recession, teenage years, disappointment, health crisis, depression and other stuff that sucks. They have truly learned the secret of Life Happens Laugh Anyway. At the end of each episode, the ladies will point you to faith in Jesus Christ as the ultimate answer regardless of how weird life gets.

Hey Humor Consumers...
***HELP WANTED!*** Nope, it's not a job, it's a mission. Please read. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
We need your help to upgrade our podcasting equipment. In the beginning we purchased "good enough" microphones that have gotten us through to this point, but it's time to take the quality of our sound to the next level.
Our goal is to raise $1,000 by the end of 2023. Will you help us? Typically, around 600 people open our weekly emails. If everyone reading these words right now just donates $2 to our equipment campaign, we will be successful. We say that to emphasize that no gift is too small.
If you have been wanting to become a sponsor of our podcast and just haven't pulled the trigger yet, now is a great time to jump on board. You can donate $5 per month by clicking here. That will take you to our Patreon page where you can join us as a monthly Humor Contributor.
If you would like to make a one time gift (remember, no gift is too small), go here. Or, you can mail a paper check payable to Tracy DeGraaf to P.O. Box 80, Peotone, IL 60468.
Thank you to all of our Humor Consumers and Humor Contributors for your support. We LOVE creating this podcast for you and hope to keep doing it for quite a while. ;0)
Now, back to episode 143 Cults

Love you all!
Humor Contributors: Jessica, Katie, Colleen, Ursula, Nancy, Kenny, Karren, Jeannine, Muffin, Dar, Courtney, Joan, Gayle, Carla and Linda. Thank you for your generous support.

***MORE ABOUT TRACY DEGRAAF COMEDY***
Hi Friends, Tracy here. My husband and I survived raising 5 boys and there were so many funny stories along the way. Now is my time to "show and tell." 🥳 I put these stories in my book and on stage in my comedy act. It's so much fun.

If you're new to my comedy, here's a little about me.
I'm from the Chicago area and I perform my one-woman clean comedy show “Life Happens Laugh Anyway” nationwide for both corporate and non-profit organizations.
My comedy combines two of my passions: Christianity and breast cancer awareness. (I was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 1 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma...a fancy name for breast cancer. Currently, I'm doing great and am cancer free!)
As a Christian and a breast cancer survivor, I use my platform to inspire women spiritually and motivate them to schedule their breast cancer screenings. I like to tell women “I want you to know Jesus, but I don’t want you to meet Him face-to-face just yet.” 🙏❤️
I pull material from my experiences as a wife, mother of five grown sons and middle-aged woman. I love performing for Girls Night Out Events, Women’s Conferences, Fundraisers, Breast Cancer Awareness Events, Cancer Survivor Events and more. I was trained for comedy at The Second City in Chicago. I'm happily married to my husband, Ron (a.k.a. Muffin) since 1989 and we are now empty nesters! 😁 We can't stop smiling. Our boys are spread out between Colorado, Illinois and Indiana.
I publish a weekly podcast called Life Happens Laugh Anyway with my bff Cathrine and it is so much fun. We started the podcast when the world shut down during Covid since all of my shows were canceled. It's a hoot. We tackle a new topic weekly that we think our audience will care about and discuss it in an entertaining way. We close each episode with some spiritual encouragement. 👍
