    40. Quarantines & Viruses with Lauren Humphries

    40. Quarantines & Viruses with Lauren Humphries

    My good friend, Lauren Humphries, knows a thing or two about quarantining kids.  She and her husband Kenneth have been fostering children with severe medical needs for 14 years, and have had to go on complete lockdown with their family to protect the children in their care for months at a time.  

    Lauren's time and experience-tested wisdom comes to us at a time when we all need it most. She knows how difficult it is to keep kids occupied, educated and most of all, how to teach them about the things we do for LOVE.

    Every time I talk to Lauren, I am immediately calmed and made to feel at ease.  She has a heart of gold, she is full of love and she gives us practical tips we can all use as we talk candidly to our children about our current situation with quarantining and keeping each other safe in order to not overwhelm the hospitals.

    Loved this talk with Lauren and I hope you will too!

    38. All About Garden Getaways with Lisa Spangenberg

    38. All About Garden Getaways with Lisa Spangenberg

    In this episode, Amy chats with Lisa Spangenberg of Garden Getaway Designs.  

    An avid gardener for many years, Lisa Spangenberg has turned a hobby into a thriving garden design and consulting business.

    In addition to her design business, she worked for several years at a local nursery and has taught garden and design classes to several community organizations. Lisa loves the design process and views her clients yards as an extension of her own backyard.  Lisa enjoys building and developing customer/client relationships and views this as critical to understanding the vision each client brings to their landscape.

    Lisa and her husband John love being parents to their three children. With two in college next year and one a few years away, they will soon be empty-nesters and are looking forward to pursuing new hobbies (including gardening!) together.

    While they mostly talk about the journey that led Lisa to start her company and all the challenges of juggling a small business and three children, Lisa also talks about her enjoyment of gardening and helps us not be so intimidated by the process.  If you want to reach Lisa or find out more about her business, take a look at her website at https://www.gardengetawaydesigns.com or find her on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/GardenGetawayDesigns.

    36. Do All to the Glory of God

    36. Do All to the Glory of God

    In this episode, Amy talks about how she had to take a step back from recording the podcast in order to contemplate some criticism she had received as a result of doing the podcast.  Sometimes, when we receive criticism, and it's hard not to take it to heart and let it slow us down or stop us altogether from doing what we know we were called to do.  But we can also use that criticism for our benefit and take a step back and think and pray over what we're supposed to be doing so that we can be stronger and clearer for having done so.
