A special podcast and a timely announcement! Today's podcast episode is a little different...It may not be specifically about raising boys, but I think it is a topic which is relevant to just about every mom I know! :) This is a big part of my personal journey, and something I am super passionate about! Thank you for allowing me to share it with you here. I also have a super special guest on with me. My friend, Cassie Phillips is a mom and wife, as well as a
Motherhood is a season when we want so much to be present with our kids. To give them our full focus and to be free to laugh and play and run and wrestle with these little gifts.

I am so super excited about this week's Boy Mom Podcast episode. I am sharing an interview with an author I've been a fan of for a long time, Drew Dyck. After reading Drew's most recent book: "Your Future Self will Thank you: Secrets of Self Control from the Bible and Brain Science," I dreamt of how great it would be to have him on the podcast to talk about BOYS AND SELF CONTROL. And you guys! -- This is so good! I am convinced that there are few
Today's Boy Mom Podcast episode is a super special one. Author, speaker, expert girl-mom (!) and my friend...Kari Kampakis joins us for a really fun and insightful chat about raising BOYS!

She and her husband are doing the good, hard work of raising their four girls to be young women of character and faith. In
Moms Need Friends is Part II of the "What a Mom Needs Most Series." (Read the introduction and find links to all of the posts in HERE.) ** This post is a bit lengthy because I tried to touch on *somanythings* about moms and friendship. You can always skim through to find what you need most, but BE SURE TO SCROLL TO BOTTOM to find an ACTION STEP + STARBUCKS GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY! I don't think I have to convince you that friendship is important in our lives.
Hey Friends! Today I am doing something brand new on the Podcast! I'm reading you a piece of my own writing. And I hope you like it (because I really enjoyed doing it!) After sharing the Introduction to my new "What a Mom Needs Most" Series last week, I had a lot of requests to share the series here on the podcast. So, though I won't be reading all of the posts in the series here, I decided that today's message was so special and foundational, I really wanted to share it!
Moms Need Intentional Perspective: Part I of the "What Moms Need Most Series." Before I dive into the specific topics I plan to cover in this new series, I feel compelled to begin with something I have found to be foundational to all the rest...I cannot stress this enough. And just to set the stage for what is to come, my plan is to cover each topic in this series in TWO WAYS: One is that of perspective and mindset, which I will lay a foundation for today. The other is
