    EP 13: #FeelsLikeHome: Cookies and Conversation

    EP 13: #FeelsLikeHome: Cookies and Conversation

    We are in the midst of a global pandemic of loneliness felt through isolation and a longing for human connection. At Girl Talk, we are providing the antidote to this pandemic of loneliness through friendship, hope, and healing. During the holiday season, we are going down memory lane with our mini-series, #FeelsLikeHome, to remind each other that we are never alone. Julie chats with a Cookies & Conversation mother and daughter, Dana and Lucy, about empathizing with friends and baking their favorite chocolate chip cookies. As they share a secret baking trick, their love of mother-daughter quality time, and the joys of sweet things in life, Girl Talk #FeelsLikeHome.
    Dana lives in Bethesda with her husband, Matt, her son and her daughter, and has called Maryland home her whole life. She has been a teacher for 24 years, working with elementary-aged children through high school students. Currently, she enjoys her days surrounded by middle school girls at Stone Ridge, her alma mater. Lucy is a Stone Ridge gator herself in 7th grade. Her favorite pastimes are playing basketball, trying new recipes and performing in her school’s plays. Together, this mom-daughter pair likes painting each other’s nails, finishing jigsaw puzzles, and baking, especially with Girl Talk’s Cookies and Conversation.******“I’ve learned [at Girl Talk] that no one can take away your dignity and that your self worth doesn’t change whether you accomplish something or fail at something.” - Lucy Iandoli“I feel at home in Girl Talk because I’m literally in my home in my kitchen. But also because I get to see some friends, especially ones I haven’t seen in a long time like my two friends from preschool who now come to Cookies and Conversation.” - Lucy Iandoli“Empathy is what allows us to connect to others. When we see through someone else's eyes or feel through someone else's heart that’s when you build a connection that often blossoms into friendship.” - Dana Iandoli“I’ve learned [at Girl Talk] that my children will understand their self-worth better by watching how I radiate my own.” - Dana Iandoli*****Follow the #FeelsLikeHome Series: www.ourgirltalk.org/feels-like-homeInstagram: @ourgirltalkJoin the Coffeehouse Community Today!

    EP 10: #FeelsLikeHome: College Sisterhood

    We are in the midst of a global pandemic of loneliness felt through isolation and a longing for human connection. At Girl Talk, we are providing the antidote to this pandemic of loneliness through friendship, hope, and healing. During the holiday season, we are going down memory lane with our mini-series, #FeelsLikeHome, to remind each other that we are never alone. Our podcast co-hosts, Julie and Shannon, chat with two amazing college ambassadors, Catherine and Emma. The girls share about the power of vulnerability, our inherent dignity, and beautiful sisterhood in their college years. By laughing at ourselves and helping lift each other out of the shadows and into hope, Girl Talk #FeelsLikeHome.

She was an ambassador for Girl Talk in 2017, it taught her so much about life and created memories that she'll never forget. Emma enjoys singing, yoga, and horror movies.Catherine Olohan*****“The most valuable thing that we can do for our friends and for those around us is to remind them that they have dignity.” - Catherine Olohan“I went to an all girls high school and that was such a safe place for my four years of high school and in college. I felt like I didn’t have that same safe place of all women that had events where you could learn about yourself and learn about other people and so Girl Talk really filled that little hole.” - Emma McCoy“We’re constantly going going going. and [Girl Talk] was a time to slow down and just acknowledge that things go wrong and we mess up and we’re imperfect. But there’s a hopeful way out. And there’s a way to turn it around, and make it into something actually beautiful.” - Catherine Olohan“I think that you can find a new sense of dignity and self-worth through vulnerability. There’s strength and pride in vulnerability that I don’t think either of us had before we were in Girl Talk.” - Emma McCoy“We can be perfectly imperfect, and keep striving.” - Julie Larkin*****Follow the #FeelsLikeHome Series: www.ourgirltalk.org/feels-like-home@ourgirltalkJoin the Coffeehouse Community Today!
