    Episode 327: How My Kids Gave on Giving Tuesday

    We started a new tradition in our home for Giving Tuesday. I gave each of my kids $20 and then presented them with 7 options for donating to different organizations. It was so cool to discuss these various options and ultimately they got to decide how they wanted to donate. You can email you the Powerpoint I made.

    Episode 326: How to Find Gratitude in Circumstances that are Super Lame!

    Episode 326: How to Find Gratitude in Circumstances that are Super Lame!

    At this time of year when everyone is sharing how grateful they are, we can respond one of two ways:



    * We love and are grateful for the blessings of others. We learn more about our fellow man through their gratitude. It can be a massive shift from the negativity that bombards our social media, and uplift our feeds!

    * We might be in a hard space, and seeing the gratitude and blessings that overflow from the lives of others, might just be the thing that puts us over the edge of feeling terrible about our own lives or circumstances. When we are struggling, it can be genuinely hard to see others thriving and living the easy, peaceful, happy lives we long for.



    I see both sides. That's why today I want to talk about how we can feel gratitude even in the midst of pretty crummy circumstances. I'll share some of the beautiful takeaways I've seen online from individuals sharing their losses, their hardships, their struggles, and remembering the blessings, beauty, lessons, and healing they've felt through them. I'll even share why I'm grateful for my anxiety.



    I hope you genuinely have a Thanksgiving filled with abundance and gratitude this year. We need it more than ever!

My favourite podcast

This is by far my favourite podcast to listen to. I binge listened to all the episodes when I first found the podcast and I get so excited when there is a new episode to listen to. Jessica makes each podcast so uplifting and she interviews some really amazing women. I love how she makes me feel like I am extraordinary even though I may not always feel like it and I go away from listening to the podcast with more confidence in myself and my abilities as a mother and woman in general. I encourage everyone to listen to this podcast, you will not be disappointed!

So encouraging

I love listening to other moms and how they handle the circumstances of their lives. I'm new to podcasts, but happy to listen. I'm enjoying going about my days listening to other moms while getting the errands done :) reminds me of the Oprah Days 💛 Love it!
