Ep. 71 : Parenting Boys into their College/Life Launch, with Gwen Smith
The Boy Mom Podcast with Monica Swanson and Friends
This is the final episode in our summer series exploring The Joys and Challenges of Every Stage of Raising our Sons. And this is one of my very favorite stages to talk about (maybe because two of my sons are in it now!) No matter the age of your son(s), I think you’ll be encouraged and inspired by this conversation! Author, podcaster, speaker, and musician, Gwen Smith, joins me to talk about preparing ourselves, and our boys, for the day they launch into independence – whether that is college, the military, or the workplace. Gwen has two sons (and a daughter) who are in or recently graduated from college, and her perspective is incredibly insightful! We cover everything from all of those high school “lasts” (have the tissues handy,) to coaching our kids (from a distance) as they deal with life challenges, spiritual questions, dating, and more. Gwen and I both love our relationship with our college-age kids so much, and we wish that for everyone! Even if your kids are young, I think you’ll get a lot out of this episode. Also: The grandmas are right when they tell us: Blink, and your kids will be there, too! Find show notes at: www.monicaswanson.com/podcast this episode: www.monicaswanson.com/episode-71

Raising Boys with a Secure Identity with Gwen Smith
The Boy Mom Podcast with Monica Swanson and Friends
In today's episode, Gwen Smith joins me as we continue to cover the main topics in my book, Boy Mom: What Your Son Needs Most From You. (releasing on August 6, 2019!) Today we come to the topic of raising a son with a secure identity. This is a big, important topic! In a world that judges you and labels you based on performance, popularity, looks, wealth, likes, follows, and on and on...how can we raise a son who does not find his identity in ANY of those things? How do we cheer on our kids in the hobbies or sports they love (and we also love!?) without making that the most important thing? How do we stress the importance of being excellent in all that you do without making our kids think that is where their value comes from? This isn't easy stuff, but I think you'll enjoy Gwen and my honest conversation about all of it! Gwen's 3 kids are bright, accomplished college students-- and athletes, and she has a lot of wisdom and experience dealing with all of this! I hope you enjoy!

Gwen Smith's tagline on her website says her purpose is "helping women know and trust God more". After today's episode of Thriving Beyond Belief, you will have no doubt that is what God has intended for her to do! Gwen is a delight, an 8w7 on the enneagram (if you know what that is) :), and has such an amazing story to tell. Not only is Gwen a follower of Jesus, wife, and mother, she is also an author, speaker, podcaster, and coach. Gwen's story is one where she is able to personally speak about the goodness, grace, and faithfulness of God. She speaks of young love, heartbreak, and amazingly beautiful redemption. I don't want to give away her whole story here, but it's one that has her cling to the story of the prodigal son from Scripture. She shares what she describes as her "mess-timony", and the fact that our sin is never going to be bigger than God's grace in our life. We cannot outdo the power of the cross! Once Gwen returned to the Lord, she spent so much time trying to "earn" her way back into the good graces of the Lord. She volunteered for every role she could in the church, trying to work her way back into the arms of the Lord, until she realized she was already there. Christ then revealed to her that in the midst of trying to earn her salvation, she stopped dreaming about what the Lord was going to do in her life. She felt "disqualified" from the race. How many of us can relate to feeling this way from time to time? But in His goodness, God showed her the grace that was given to her, the fact that we can never earn our salvation, and that with thriving ALWAYS comes honesty about our story. I love how she reminds us that His arms are never too short to save and His ears are never too dull to hear. We talk about Gwen's definition of thriving. One thing that stuck out to me about what she had to share was that she always referred to herself as someone who was "dizzy". She loved to spin in circles as a girl, and that same mindset carried into adulthood. But she claims that this leads to chaos and it keeps our eyes from ever looking forward. Gwen believes thriving is being able to look straight ahead to eternity and to keep from spinning in mindless directions. We even cope together as we discuss the season of empty nesting, bond over being fellow podcasters, and discuss how the Lord truly uses all of our mess to create something beautiful and new. I cannot wait for you to take a listen today!
