How we spend our days is how we spend our lives. Do you find yourself just going through the motions of life, stuck in overwhelm, anxiety and guilt?
Beyond Happy is the podcast for women called to motherhood and business who want to improve their mental, emotional and spiritual health so that they can create lives that feel as good as they look on the outside.
Each week, we pair psychology and faith, mindset and personal growth with everyday life challenges and tangible takeaways.
As a life coach for working moms, my goal for each episode of Beyond Happy is to help you understand why you think what you think, feel what you feel and do what you do so that you can feel better for good
Ep. 125: Time Scarcity: Why it Feels Like There's Never Enough
Does it feel like there's never enough time in your days? To focus. To be productive. To accomplish all that you want to? Time is the greatest struggle working moms come to be needing help with. And here's the thing. We have a LOT of thoughts about time. It feels scarce - and it stresses us out. We think if only we had more time, everything would be different and we'd feel so much better. In this episode, we're talking about time as a mindset - specifically when ours is rooted in time scarcity. We're diving into what time scarcity is, why it's a problem, while it feels like there's never enough time in your life and what you can do about it.
Ep. 124: The One Question You Need To Ask Right Now
When you carry last year's baggage (the mental and emotional kind that are weighing you down) into a new year, you're going to have the same kind of year. And when that is repeated, left unchecked year after year, your pain and suffering snowballs. Much of that pain and suffering is optional and not useful to you in any way. And you haven't done anything wrong, you just aren't aware of it. Learning how to manage your mental, emotional and spiritual health by understanding why you think what you think, feel what you feel and do what you do is a game-changer. In this episode, we're talking about what it looks live beyond the past in a new year, including the ONE question you need to ask yourself right now.
Ep. 123: You Are the Mom for the Job
It's the start of a brand new year. A blank slate. How are you feeling? Are you ready to go and diving head first into the new year, or stuck in a haze, wanting to hide under the covers? Either way, I get it. And either way, you are not alone. We're having all the feelings right now - sometimes in a span of 5 minutes. That's why when I thought of what I most wanted to share with you as we launch into 2021 - it's encouragement - it's my belief that you've got this, because you are the mom for the job. In this episode, we're talking about believing new things, borrowing thoughts and what I believe is true about you and this big, beautiful new year. I'm also sharing the details of my first-ever, 5-Day Challenge for working moms! It's called Go Beyond - and you don't want to miss it.

Ep. 122: Hindsight is 2020
In this final episode of the year, we're looking back at all 2020 has taught us with the clarity that often comes from hindsight. We're talking about how this year has forever changed us, giving equal air time to the good and the five biggest blessings that have happened this year alongside the difficult and the hard. I'm offering a powerful writing exercise that can help bring closure to your year while helping you to feel stronger and more capable as you step into 2021, and I'm sharing how you can sign up for the free, 5-day event I'm offering in January to help you go beyond in the new year.
Ep. 121: The Serenity Prayer and Control
For me, the sweet spot in coaching and applying thought work to our lives is when psychology, neuroscience and faith collide. In this episode, we're talking about the well-known and beloved Serenity Prayer, and how its message sheds so much light on our desire for control as human beings. We talk about what we can control in our lives, what we can't, and what it looks like to trust in something bigger than ourselves and let go.
Ep. 120: Giving Yourself Grace
Giving yourself grace is the ultimate gift. But as working moms doing all the things for all the people in our lives, we tend to be hard on ourselves. Really hard, sometimes. We can be so good at giving grace to others in our lives - so WHY do so many of us struggle with extending that grace to ourselves? In this episode we’re talking about what giving yourself grace looks like, why it matters, why it’s so hard and a few action steps you can take right now if you want to cultivate more compassion and grace for yourself.
