#255: Walking Through Loss with Emily Honea

What do you say when someone you love experiences loss? How is even possible to find the blessings when the pain of losing a loved one is your own? If you haven’t experienced grief yourself, you’re likely to have a friend who has and you’ll feel that urge to come alongside them. Today I brought on a listener who helped my sister Katie when she was blindsided with grief and I wanted her to come to share her insight. Emily Honea rides a pony. Not really, but Honea rhymes with pony, so now you might be able to remember how to say her last name. Emily is a regular mom who lives just outside of Dallas, Texas and spends most of her days wrangling her two young boys. She has been married for eleven years and is thankful every day for God’s provision for her through her husband Jeremy. Emily works part-time from home as an online adjunct professor of Communication Studies, and recently started a podcast. It is called Uniquely You Podcast which looks at how God created us each uniquely using the Bible as well as the enneagram. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: how motherhood revealed Emily’s selfishness dealing with postpartum anxiety after the traumatic birth of her son navigating a house with high energy people when you like peace and quiet encouragement for moms with kids in the potty training phase the loss of Emily’s father to a brain tumor and what that experience has taught her about grief the six stages of grief the difference between moving on and moving forward how to help friends who are grieving LINKS MENTIONED: Grumpy Mom Takes a Holiday (https://amzn.to/32coKMK) Grief Share (https://www.griefshare.org/) That Discomfort You’re Feeling is Grief (https://hbr.org/2020/03/that-discomfort-youre-feeling-is-grief) Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

#253: Bloom Where You're Planted with Tina Prenzi

You know those people that are so full of life and easy to be around that you just feel lighter after spending time with them? That’s my neighbor Tina. And dang it, I miss her! We talk a lot in this episode about what it has done to our friendship to be on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to sheltering in place. You’re going to love her and her stories about the foot she was going to use for Christmas and the finger she lost in menopause. You can find Tina @themightydandelion (https://www.instagram.com/themightydandelion/) on Instagram. The story behind this name and Tina’s bloom where you are planted theory is this: The dandelion has grit, grows with just a little piece of dirt, rain, and a bit of sunshine. The mighty dandelion can bloom just about anywhere! Then, just when you think its life is finished; the seeds fly all over the world and begin again. Just like us. We are dandelions too. And we are MIGHTY. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: what our friendship looks like with di...

#251: The Lazy Genius Way with Kendra Adachi

I don’t like it when people make me feel like I need to be more, buy more, or accomplish more. I also don’t like feeling out of control or like I’m falling behind. I am SUCH a fan of Kendra’s concept: Be a genius about the things that matter and lazy about the things that don’t. Striving towards movement vs. racing to achievement is the perspective shift we are talking about today. Kendra Adachi went to college to become a high school English teacher but instead became the Lazy Genius, passionately and candidly sharing how to stop doing it all for the sake of doing what matters. Her work includes hosting The Lazy Genius Podcast, cooking dinner on Instagram, and convincing her three young kids that talking on the phone is Mommy’s job. She and her husband love raising their family in the same North Carolina city they both grew up in. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: the difficulty of launching a book in the middle of 2020 Kendra’s love for her whiteboard card games she’s loving during the pandemic Kendra’s life before she developed The Lazy Genius concept doing things because of their importance to you, not someone else simplifying your life by deciding once accomplishing your long-term goals by thinking smaller developing one new ridiculously new habit at a time becoming comfortable with failure Kendra’s new hobby LINKS MENTIONED: Middleditch & Schwartz (https://www.middleditchandschwartz.com/netflix-specials) Thinkboard (https://www.think-board.com/) Skip-Bo (https://amzn.to/2XTzbSS) Monopoly Deal (https://amzn.to/33Vr1xm) Horseopoloy (https://amzn.to/3iNkGbx) We Wonder podcast (https://www.wewonderpod.com/) Olive & June nail polish (https://oliveandjune.com/) Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

#250: Our Favorite Things with Rebecky and Katie

#249: Practicing Adoration with Sara Hagerty

It can be so gratifying to look at yourself/family/spouse through God’s eyes. But the truth is, it’s really hard to let go of what you’ve envisioned for your life. Sara talks with us about the huge shift she has seen over the past few years while focusing on adoration and aligning herself with the Word. We talk a lot about idealism and perfectionism in this one which is something that I really struggle with. What’s the difference between the two, and what’s the big deal? Sara Hagerty is a lover of God, a wife to Nate, and a mother of seven-four adopted from Africa and then more through miracle pregnancies. She's also a bestselling author and speaker. As a lifelong admirer of words, Sara has experienced their power to revive. Raw words written in tearful honesty and shared with her readers. Words whispered in hidden places as conversation with God and worship to Him. Today Sara's words offer God's hope to readers facing unexpected life circumstances. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: feeling the effects of aging what Sara’s life looks like with a large, mixed-race family in a word that has been turned upside down the effects of trauma across a lifetime and can be vastly different for each child how trusting that her kid’s pain is real has affected the way Sara’s children respond what Sara’s family has been doing for their mental health perfectionism vs. idealism the trap of idealism the grace of God Sara sees in her 4 adopted children how letting go of her vision for her family and seeing it through God’s eyes is slowly changing Sara as a mom, leader, and wife a shift in perspective about kids’ emotional teenage years adoration bringing our thoughts in alignment with God’s thoughts what Sara has learned about herself after a decade of being intentional about adoration LINKS MENTIONED: Ransomed Heart (Wild at Heart) (https://wildatheart.org/) The Soul of Shame (https://amzn.to/330aE1V) Anatomy of the Soul (https://amzn.to/2WZBhAo) Growth Book (https://www.growthrootsco.com/shop) Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

#247: Getting to the Root of It with Rachel Scott

Do you ever feel lost as a Mom, like you can’t remember what your assignment is? Are you digging deep right now deciding how you will respond to racial inequality? Throughout this chat we hit on the ever-evolving nature of our relationships with our children, being a part of a blended family and even share what may be unpopular opinions on some hot topics but with each subject that comes up, Rachel keeps reminding me to self-reflect and get to the root. I am so thankful for my sweet friend's positive biblical perspective when it feels like a minefield to bring up race. Rachel G. Scott is an author, speaker, and business/branding consultant. She has built several companies and her passion is to help aspiring and current business owners build, brand (or re-brand), and launch their business while providing them with tools to overcome hurdles along the way. Rachel has a unique ability to help individuals define what they do, who they do it for, and how they can present it to the world. Her knowledge and love for business and branding is evident whether she is consulting, mentoring, or speaking to a room full of people. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: relationships with adult stepchildren the difference in the connection between Rachel and her biological kids vs. stepkids adjusting how you run your household as children move out the importance of self-reflection Rachel’s thoughts on oppression from a Christian perspective and recognizing that racism is still a problem getting to the root of why we stick to comfortable cliques taking the risk to grow your sphere of connection with diversity the story behind Rachel’s ministry I Can’t Come Down your purpose vs. your assignment - we all have the same purpose; the assignment is how we do it juggling multiple assignments and identifying what to let go of LINKS MENTIONED: Try Softer (https://amzn.to/32yU3SA) #90: Better Than Blended with Rachel Scott (https://momstrugglingwell.com/podcast/90-rachel-scott) Better Than Blended (https://betterthanblended.com/) I Can’t Come Down (https://icantcomedown.com/) White Fragility (https://amzn.to/32A4dm4) Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

#256: Hormones with the Moms Struggling Well

#255: Walking Through Loss with Emily Honea

What do you say when someone you love experiences loss? How is even possible to find the blessings when the pain of losing a loved one is your own? If you haven’t experienced grief yourself, you’re likely to have a friend who has and you’ll feel that urge to come alongside them. Today I brought on a listener who helped my sister Katie when she was blindsided with grief and I wanted her to come to share her insight. Emily Honea rides a pony. Not really, but Honea rhymes with pony, so now you might be able to remember how to say her last name. Emily is a regular mom who lives just outside of Dallas, Texas and spends most of her days wrangling her two young boys. She has been married for eleven years and is thankful every day for God’s provision for her through her husband Jeremy. Emily works part-time from home as an online adjunct professor of Communication Studies, and recently started a podcast. It is called Uniquely You Podcast which looks at how God created us each uniquely using the Bible as well as the enneagram. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: how motherhood revealed Emily’s selfishness dealing with postpartum anxiety after the traumatic birth of her son navigating a house with high energy people when you like peace and quiet encouragement for moms with kids in the potty training phase the loss of Emily’s father to a brain tumor and what that experience has taught her about grief the six stages of grief the difference between moving on and moving forward how to help friends who are grieving LINKS MENTIONED: Grumpy Mom Takes a Holiday (https://amzn.to/32coKMK) Grief Share (https://www.griefshare.org/) That Discomfort You’re Feeling is Grief (https://hbr.org/2020/03/that-discomfort-youre-feeling-is-grief) Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

#253: Bloom Where You're Planted with Tina Prenzi

You know those people that are so full of life and easy to be around that you just feel lighter after spending time with them? That’s my neighbor Tina. And dang it, I miss her! We talk a lot in this episode about what it has done to our friendship to be on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to sheltering in place. You’re going to love her and her stories about the foot she was going to use for Christmas and the finger she lost in menopause. You can find Tina @themightydandelion (https://www.instagram.com/themightydandelion/) on Instagram. The story behind this name and Tina’s bloom where you are planted theory is this: The dandelion has grit, grows with just a little piece of dirt, rain, and a bit of sunshine. The mighty dandelion can bloom just about anywhere! Then, just when you think its life is finished; the seeds fly all over the world and begin again. Just like us. We are dandelions too. And we are MIGHTY. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: what our friendship looks like with di...

#251: The Lazy Genius Way with Kendra Adachi

I don’t like it when people make me feel like I need to be more, buy more, or accomplish more. I also don’t like feeling out of control or like I’m falling behind. I am SUCH a fan of Kendra’s concept: Be a genius about the things that matter and lazy about the things that don’t. Striving towards movement vs. racing to achievement is the perspective shift we are talking about today. Kendra Adachi went to college to become a high school English teacher but instead became the Lazy Genius, passionately and candidly sharing how to stop doing it all for the sake of doing what matters. Her work includes hosting The Lazy Genius Podcast, cooking dinner on Instagram, and convincing her three young kids that talking on the phone is Mommy’s job. She and her husband love raising their family in the same North Carolina city they both grew up in. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: the difficulty of launching a book in the middle of 2020 Kendra’s love for her whiteboard card games she’s loving during the pandemic Kendra’s life before she developed The Lazy Genius concept doing things because of their importance to you, not someone else simplifying your life by deciding once accomplishing your long-term goals by thinking smaller developing one new ridiculously new habit at a time becoming comfortable with failure Kendra’s new hobby LINKS MENTIONED: Middleditch & Schwartz (https://www.middleditchandschwartz.com/netflix-specials) Thinkboard (https://www.think-board.com/) Skip-Bo (https://amzn.to/2XTzbSS) Monopoly Deal (https://amzn.to/33Vr1xm) Horseopoloy (https://amzn.to/3iNkGbx) We Wonder podcast (https://www.wewonderpod.com/) Olive & June nail polish (https://oliveandjune.com/) Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

#249: Practicing Adoration with Sara Hagerty

It can be so gratifying to look at yourself/family/spouse through God’s eyes. But the truth is, it’s really hard to let go of what you’ve envisioned for your life. Sara talks with us about the huge shift she has seen over the past few years while focusing on adoration and aligning herself with the Word. We talk a lot about idealism and perfectionism in this one which is something that I really struggle with. What’s the difference between the two, and what’s the big deal? Sara Hagerty is a lover of God, a wife to Nate, and a mother of seven-four adopted from Africa and then more through miracle pregnancies. She's also a bestselling author and speaker. As a lifelong admirer of words, Sara has experienced their power to revive. Raw words written in tearful honesty and shared with her readers. Words whispered in hidden places as conversation with God and worship to Him. Today Sara's words offer God's hope to readers facing unexpected life circumstances. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: feeling the effects of aging what Sara’s life looks like with a large, mixed-race family in a word that has been turned upside down the effects of trauma across a lifetime and can be vastly different for each child how trusting that her kid’s pain is real has affected the way Sara’s children respond what Sara’s family has been doing for their mental health perfectionism vs. idealism the trap of idealism the grace of God Sara sees in her 4 adopted children how letting go of her vision for her family and seeing it through God’s eyes is slowly changing Sara as a mom, leader, and wife a shift in perspective about kids’ emotional teenage years adoration bringing our thoughts in alignment with God’s thoughts what Sara has learned about herself after a decade of being intentional about adoration LINKS MENTIONED: Ransomed Heart (Wild at Heart) (https://wildatheart.org/) The Soul of Shame (https://amzn.to/330aE1V) Anatomy of the Soul (https://amzn.to/2WZBhAo) Growth Book (https://www.growthrootsco.com/shop) Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

#247: Getting to the Root of It with Rachel Scott

Do you ever feel lost as a Mom, like you can’t remember what your assignment is? Are you digging deep right now deciding how you will respond to racial inequality? Throughout this chat we hit on the ever-evolving nature of our relationships with our children, being a part of a blended family and even share what may be unpopular opinions on some hot topics but with each subject that comes up, Rachel keeps reminding me to self-reflect and get to the root. I am so thankful for my sweet friend's positive biblical perspective when it feels like a minefield to bring up race. Rachel G. Scott is an author, speaker, and business/branding consultant. She has built several companies and her passion is to help aspiring and current business owners build, brand (or re-brand), and launch their business while providing them with tools to overcome hurdles along the way. Rachel has a unique ability to help individuals define what they do, who they do it for, and how they can present it to the world. Her knowledge and love for business and branding is evident whether she is consulting, mentoring, or speaking to a room full of people. WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: relationships with adult stepchildren the difference in the connection between Rachel and her biological kids vs. stepkids adjusting how you run your household as children move out the importance of self-reflection Rachel’s thoughts on oppression from a Christian perspective and recognizing that racism is still a problem getting to the root of why we stick to comfortable cliques taking the risk to grow your sphere of connection with diversity the story behind Rachel’s ministry I Can’t Come Down your purpose vs. your assignment - we all have the same purpose; the assignment is how we do it juggling multiple assignments and identifying what to let go of LINKS MENTIONED: Try Softer (https://amzn.to/32yU3SA) #90: Better Than Blended with Rachel Scott (https://momstrugglingwell.com/podcast/90-rachel-scott) Better Than Blended (https://betterthanblended.com/) I Can’t Come Down (https://icantcomedown.com/) White Fragility (https://amzn.to/32A4dm4) Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
