Ep 105 | Teaching Our Kids to Learn // How the Circle of Learning Incorporates Knowledge, Understanding, and Wisdom

November 30, 2021

As a homeschooling mama (now only one of my kids since the younger two are trying out a full-time charter school this year), teaching our kids how to learn is quite a passion of mine. I want them to understand how to learn, how to think, how to create. I don’t want them just to be taught what to learn, what to think, or what to create. 

When we instill a love of learning in our children, then I believe they can learn anything! There are some foundations we can put into place to help them do this, and my main goal for my boys in their education is to help them become life-long learners.

If we dive deeper, learning is a Biblical thing! God wants us to grow in knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. My guest today, Aaron Brewster, is an expert at training parents how to teach our children to learn, so I’m excited to have him with us today. We’re going to discuss the Circle of Learning, which includes that Biblical aspect of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.

Ep 104 | Diet Mentality vs Food Freedom as a Christian // Finding Your Worth in Jesus

Ep 104 | Diet Mentality vs Food Freedom as a Christian // Finding Your Worth in Jesus

November 23, 2021

Last week Cat Sharp shared her food freedom story going from binge eating to finding her freedom and worth through Christ, not through diet. It was such a powerful story, so if you haven’t yet, I encourage you to go back and take a listen so you can know where we’re going today. I’m bringing Cat back on to help us learn how to eliminate the diet mentality for good and to find food freedome ourselves. 

After decades of yo-yo dieting, emotional eating, and binge eating, Cat Sharp stopped seeking answers in the world and started seeking them in God’s Word. As a result, Cat has lost over 100 pounds and is now a Certified Life Coach with a passion for helping Christian women break the shame of the diet cycle and find peace and health in their bodies. She believes that the principles of caring for our physical bodies are beautiful, mini representations of the concepts of discipleship. She loves to help her clients see the bigger picture of what glorifying God in our bodies truly means.

Ep 102 | Breaking Free from an Emotional Relationship with Food

Ep 102 | Breaking Free from an Emotional Relationship with Food

November 16, 2021

I have shared my own food story on this podcast and how it was a form of control for me and really became an idol in my life. The journey to freedom was long and hard, but so worth it.

Today I’m bringing on Certified Life Coach Cat Sharp to share about her own story of binge eating and her emotional relationship with food. After a “come to Jesus” moment, she turned that journey over to the Lord and even lost 100 pounds in the process! She learned to find her worth in Jesus and not the scale or her diet plan.

Cat believes that the principles of caring for our physical bodies are beautiful, mini representations of the concepts of discipleship. It’s a powerful conversation, and I’m so excited for you to listen in!

November 2, 2021

It's been a few weeks since the Boston Marathon, and I thought I'd take some time sharing a few updates, including a few audio clips from some of the Boston moms from our podcast series (these women are overcomers to say the least!!!!)

I found out WHY my performance was lacking on race day -- my slowest marathon ever -- what happened???

Next goals? Am I retiring the marathon length? What's coming up?

Ep 98 | Returning to a Biblical Worldview and Getting Back into the Word of God

Ep 98 | Returning to a Biblical Worldview and Getting Back into the Word of God

October 26, 2021

I’m super passionate about helping others get back into the Word of God, and my guest today is also passionate about that! In the culture that we live in, it’s so important for us to actually think about what we’re thinking about. We need to be able to take inventory of how our worldview is being shaped by the world around us through TV, music, school curriculum, and everything else in between. But how do we do this? Tyler Noe is with me today to help us through this issue.

Tyler lives in Greer, South Carolina, and is an online student at Fruitland Baptist Bible College. He became a Christian at 14 years old and felt called into ministry at a young age of 15. He launched an online ministry about a year ago called Bread of the Word where he teaches verse by verse through the Bible and strives to put the Biblical worldview on display while encouraging others to be Bible-saturated.

Ep. 97 | Why The Spiritual Discipline of Waiting on God and Resting in Him is Necessary for Goal-Driven Women

Ep. 97 | Why The Spiritual Discipline of Waiting on God and Resting in Him is Necessary for Goal-Driven Women

October 19, 2021

Why is waiting so difficult? Can it actually benefit us to wait? As a goal-driven woman, the spiritual discipline of waiting is so, so hard! Is there a way to make it easier?

Do you feel it? The hurry? The hustle? The busyness of life? But what happens when you get stuck waiting on something, and you can’t just hustle through it? That was me this past year. After moving to Colorado, my husband lost his full-time job two weeks later, and we quickly began the waiting phase. And we kept waiting, and waiting, and waiting. 

Sometimes I questioned where God was in all of this, but then I remembered just how He moved us where He did and all the provisions He had for us along the way. But it didn’t mean we didn’t have to wait. 

What is it that we should do in the waiting to make things a bit easier on ourselves? Well, that’s what we’re diving into today, and I’m bringing marriage and family therapist Jessica Hayes back on the show to share with us just how we can incorporate a few disciplines into our waiting that will help us grow personally and spiritually.

Ep. 96 | Life after Childhood Trauma - Resolving the Past to Move Forward in Personal Relationships

Ep. 96 | Life after Childhood Trauma - Resolving the Past to Move Forward in Personal Relationships

October 14, 2021

Hey friend, today’s topic is pretty heavy. We are talking about some childhood trauma in the form of abuse, and I want to prepare you for that in case you have kids in the room and want to wait to listen to this when no little ears are present. This is a tough subject, but I also feel like it’s important to talk about. Joric McLean went through the unimaginable not only with his mom, but also with his stepmom from a very young age. His story is powerful. It will make you angry.

It will make you cry, and it will make you feel all the emotions in between. We don’t go into detail about the trauma, but if you want to hear more about his specific struggle/victory story, I encourage you to pick up a copy of the Lemonade Stand 2 anthology.

He told me no question is off-limits today, so we’re going to dive deep into his struggles, the mental shifts he made, how he made the best of the cards he was dealt, and the biggest lessons he learned from his childhood experience. We also talk about how to help our men open up about any trauma they may have encountered so our relationships can thrive and they don’t have to feel like they have to bottle up the pain and can move forward from their past into a thriving future.

One of Joric’s missions is to encourage others to get help sooner rather than later so those old wounds of the past doing creep into adult relationships with spouses, partners, or kids. It’s important to resolve the past or at least come to grips with it so you don’t have to keep reliving it through current or future relationships.
