How to Pick a Word for the Year // Thursday Tidbits

February 25, 2021

Do you pick a word each year as a focus word? I started a few years ago choosing a word to define my year, and I find it helps center me and keeps me focused. In essence, it’s a way to filter my decisions and plans through a larger purpose.

On today’s Thursday Tidbit, I’m going to share what my word is for 2021 and three tips on how you can come up with a word for your year! I know it’s February, but it’s not too late to decide to have a word of focus for the current year we are immersed in now.

How a No-Quit Attitude Led One Runner to a Strong Boston-Qualifying Finish // Interview with Shannon White

How a No-Quit Attitude Led One Runner to a Strong Boston-Qualifying Finish // Interview with Shannon White

February 23, 2021

Today’s mother runner doesn’t know how to quit, and that’s a good thing, because years of resilience and determination landed her with a bid to the 2020 Boston Marathon, and today we get to hear all about her journey to get there. It took about 6 years, 28 marathons, and a couple major setbacks to do it, but she did, and the best part of the experience is that she gets to set the example for her girls on how to persevere.

Shannon White lives in Minnesota with her husband of 20 years and their four girls, ages 15, 13, 11, and 9. She works full time as a CT Tech on overnights at HCMC, a level one trauma center in Minneapolis and also works as a casual employee at three other hospitals and a radiology outpatient center.

How to Balance Nutrition as a Busy Mom // Thursday Tidbits with Wellness Coach Erin Grieger

February 18, 2021

Today on our Thursday Tidbits we dive into the topic of nutrition and what it means for busy moms, how to encourage our kids in their health, and how to embrace it for ourselves. 

To help me with this topic, I have my good friend Erin Grieger here to help me out. I met Erin online in a homeschooling group, and we realized just how much we had in common - from blogging, to fitness, to homeschooling - that we instantly became friends. I’m excited to share her with you today! 

Erin is a motherhood lifestyle blogger who focuses on a mom’s journey with her health, home life, and homeschooling.

How One Successful Career Woman Turned Entrepreneur // Interview with Wealth Mentor Lisa Williams

How One Successful Career Woman Turned Entrepreneur // Interview with Wealth Mentor Lisa Williams

February 16, 2021

Maybe you’re like me, and in every job or role you’ve held, you have felt something missing, or you’ve just longed to have something that’s your own. I’ve only ever known working odd jobs and multiple of them as my husband and I navigated our way through early adulthood and parenthood. 

My most stable and longest-lasting job was in the restaurant where I started as a host and worked my way up to restaurant management (which actually was a fancy way of saying, “I’ll pay you for 40 hours, but you’ll work for 60+, and we will own your schedule and your time”). Don’t get me wrong, I actually loved what I did. I think a part of me thrives in the chaos and fast-paced environment a restaurant brings, but something was missing. I wasn’t feeling fulfilled, and I felt God had another calling on my life. 

If that’s you today, listen in, because my guest today is going to bring the fire and share her story of leaving a very stable corporate career to build her own business and inspire others to do the same. You can find joy right where you’re at, in whatever season or job you are in, and you’re called to do that. If you are in a season of motherhood, embrace that gift! If you are in a season as a working mom, be intentional with the time you have and be an example in your workplace and home. Learn to live joyfully where you are, and work to get where you feel God is leading you next. 

Lisa Williams is an Alaska girl, born and raised, married with three kids, is a life-long learner, loves to travel, and sings in a praise band.

Trade the Lies for the Truth // Thursday Tidbits

Trade the Lies for the Truth // Thursday Tidbits

February 11, 2021

On today’s Thursday Tidbit we’re talking about trading the lies for the truth. This is a powerful lesson to learn, and it’s a practice we need to incorporate daily. In January we talked about the truth that you can control your thoughts, and I walked you through some steps you can take to do that. As the bouncer of your own mind, you need to recognize lies when they try to input into your mind and trade them for truths. 

Thursday Tidbits are short and sweet episodes filled with tangible tips you can implement immediately! My goal with these topics is that you can use them to fuel your growth as you focus on being intentional in every area of your life. Let’s get into today’s Thursday Tidbit.

How One Mother Runner Cut a Full Hour off Her Marathon Time // Interview with Boston Marathon Qualifier Jen Hayworth

How One Mother Runner Cut a Full Hour off Her Marathon Time // Interview with Boston Marathon Qualifier Jen Hayworth

February 9, 2021

Okay, all you runners. How would you feel if you were able to cut one full hour off your marathon time between your first and second marathons? I mean, seriously, that would be awesome, right?

Today’s guest did just that to qualify for the 2020 Boston Marathon. Now, I will tell you, it wasn’t easy. She struggled even getting into running at all, but suffered a nasty IT band injury in training for her first marathon.

In our conversation, Jen Hayworth shares what changed and made the difference between her first and second marathons, and I think you’re going to be surprised by what she says! We talk about prioritizing training and how she was able to do that with two small kiddos at home at the time, and we touch on just how important mental training is. You hear me talk about that all the time, that training your mind is just as important as the physical training. Today’s chat will prove that once again!

Listen to the full episode to hear:

  • How she took up running and why it helped her through postpartum depression
  • How she dropped her first marathon time from 4:30 to 3:31 her second race!
  • Why you do have the time if you want it and how prioritizing is key
  • Her mindset of large goals and dreams versus the smaller, stepping-stone goals

5 Key Things We’ve Learned in 15 Years of Marriage // Conversation with My Hubby

5 Key Things We’ve Learned in 15 Years of Marriage // Conversation with My Hubby

February 2, 2021

We are far from being Marriage Counselors, but we have learned a few things in our 15 years of marriage. Today we have a conversation about the three things we each have learned, and I pray that something in this episode will stand out to you and make your life and marriage better.

We decided it would be fun to come up with our own three things and compare them, so coming into the conversation I didn't know what Josh's three things were, and Josh didn't know what my three things were! Join us in this fun and lighthearted conversation about marriage!

Gabe’s three things:

  • When we put Christ first our marriage is better
  • It's not about me (though I want it to be)
  • I don't really know anything

Josh’s three things:

  • Your spouse is not meant to be “The One” - God is #1, Spouse is #2
  • Marriage is always going to take work, but the work is worth it.
  • We know best how to push each other's buttons. Push the positive buttons, not the negative ones.

Listen to the full episode to hear us unpack each of the things we've learned in marriage!

Life balance is something many moms struggle with - whether they are working moms or stay-at-home moms. It's important to recognize the areas that you are unhappy with and address them before they start affecting all the other parts of your life. Life balance is different for each of us - we have to create it in a way that fits our personalities, family lifestyle, and our goals.
