Episode 79: Decluttering! with Allie Casazza

Podcast cover
Read more

A few weeks ago, Robin from The Balanced Life, posted an article by Allie Casazza on her website that went VIRAL. Before it even took I off, I had read and shared it thinking, “Yes! Yes to all of it!” It’s all about how having less stuff can be transformative to not only your home but also to your life and happiness. She shares how her personal journey with decluttering affected everything else and how her kids thrived with less THINGS everywhere. I knew I wanted to chat with her about this topic, so I’m thrilled to bring you my conversation with Allie today.

You don’t need to clean out everything at once… start small and gain momentum as you go. See how you feel once things have a place and you get real with what you need or truly enjoy in your home. Let me know your tips for staying organized.

And as a reminder, sign up for the FREE Mom Conference! It’s not too late. It starts Tuesday and runs Oct 11-13th. You’ll receive an email telling you who the presenters are each day and then you can choose which sessions you want to view.

Episode 66: Homeschooling with Brooke Greenstreet

Podcast cover
Read more

Brooke Greenstreet never intended to homeschool her children, but on today’s episode, she will share how she came to the decision that that was best for her kids. Now, several years in, she has learned so much from the experience and her joy for education and passion for differentiating their education almost had me ready to jump onboard myself (almost!)! Whether or not you believe homeschooling is in your future, this is an interesting look at one way to educate children and to reevaluate how we enable them to learn in their own way and according to their own needs. We recorded in February, so we mention how cold it was, which probably seems strange since this is airing in August, but better late than never!

A mom’s job is never done. It seems like our to-do lists and obligations are never ending. There is always someone that needs us at any given time. There’s truly no other job like it! As much as we might struggle with getting everything done and finding joy while doing it, there are some things we can do that might make things go a little bit smoother. These ideas that I talk about today are from my own life, as well as from the suggestions of our dear listeners. You all have such great ideas to share and I thank you for contributing. Many times it’s not about a big overhaul change we need to make, but about the subtle tweaks that can make a big impact. What are some things you do to help with feeling overwhelmed, time management and organization?

How do you think you’re doing as a mom? At the end of the day do you focus more on what you did do or what you didn’t do? Isn’t it sad that so many of us focus more on the things we didn’t do or didn’t do well, when we may have done SO many things right? On any given day, I fall into the comparison trap and find myself sabotaging my thinking by repeating what I “should” be doing. What if we gave ourself more credit and instead of focusing on what we think we SHOULD be doing, we gave ourselves grace and felt confident in the things we ARE doing. Let me know if this episode resonates with you. What are the things you think you SHOULD be doing?

Happy Father’s Day to all the incredible dads out there. Today, we are hearing from an Extraordinary Dad, Daniel Brooker. You might remember his now wife, Brittany Price, from episode 138, where she shared about becoming a widow, enduring that difficult time, and then finding love again. Well, Daniel was her love at the end of that difficult road, and ironically enough, he had travelled a similar path. Today we are talking about adoption, losing his wife, grief, and also finding great love again in Brittany. Blending families is not easy, but I admire how he shares candidly about the way he views step-parenting and the importance of dating. It’s a must listen, as it will offer a different perspective into loss. He’s really extraordinary!

Her philosophy of peaceful parenting and her expansive website helped me through some VERY challenging early parenting years and I’m so grateful to have learned about her for the sake of my relationship with my kids. She has an approach that might seem too good to be true at first glance, but she stands firm that by using empathy, emotion control, and appropriate communication, and you can kiss yelling and timeouts goodbye!

Today, we chat about her own motherhood experience, how she got into clinical psychology and this new type of research, and what she hears about most from parents. It literally felt like I had had a therapy session when we ended the call. I hope you have some tangible takeaways from this episode to help you to continuing building a positive relationship with your child.

My guest today is Ginger Sprouse. Ginger’s motherhood started out just as she had always imagined, but eventually she began to look elsewhere for her fulfillment, and an affair led her to divorce and strained relationships with her kids. She hit rock bottom, but found hope again in the Lord. As you built her faith, she also rebuilt her life. And then one day she met Victor, a homeless man you passed repeatedly on a common street corner. One conversation led to another, then he moved in with her and she supported him in creating a life that he never dreamed was possible. She has written a new book called “Kinda Like Grace,” detailing this whole journey. She’s incredible, vulnerable, and you’re going to be in awe of her boldness when God directs her to do something:)
