    108. What are we Even Doing with our Lives???

    108. What are we Even Doing with our Lives???

    Are we living in a houseboat? Moving to Sri Lanka? Moving back to SoCal? Nashville anyone? Living in an RV? Or Staying in Ohio?
     
    We have not had clarity on what is next for us for quite some time. Over the past thirty days we have realized that we have been seeking God’s direction on a surface level. We decided to double down and dive deep with Him. All the while keeping all options on the table, and asking God to take the things off the table that He does not want. We have been intentional about every option, and with spending time with Him-who knows the plan.


    Listen to the episode to see how that has gone.
     
    Episode Highlights: 
    Reflecting back on our intentions for the move back to Ohio.Things we have decided to cut back on.The importance of figuring out your priorities in each season of life.Why we need to be disciplined with the time we’ve been given.A call to action for all generations.

    106. Parenting with Purpose with Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins

    106. Parenting with Purpose with Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins

    You guys are lucky today’s episode even exists, because if I (Bethany) had caved into my selfish desires, I’d have cancelled this interview and used this hour with today’s guests all to ourselves for some one-on-one coaching!  
     
    Today on the show, we have Jimmy and Kristin Scroggins from Family Church. These two are a power couple Corey and I wouldn’t mind being a little more like,  and I’m so grateful for our time with them.  Jimmy and Kristin are the perfect couple to teach us on parenting today as they are the parents of eight! 
     
    In this episode Jimmy and Kristin walk us through how to navigate some of the challenges that come with parenting, and they also explain what we should expect as christian parents trying to raise christian kiddos.
     
    They also have a brand new book out that is absolutely killer (link below)! While we didn’t have time to dive into all of the details of the book today, I don’t want to forget to mention that in this book they cover how to navigate difficult topics such as gender, sexuality, marriage, technology, substance abuse, bitterness, friendship, mean kids, and more. This book has been a game changer for me and I haven’t been able to stop myself from sharing it with people in real life, so I can’t wait for you all to hear more about it today! Enjoy!
     
    Episode Highlights: 
    The importance of investing in our kids.How we can allow the Holy Spirit to guide our purpose journeys.Heart transformation vs. behavior modification and why we should work on the former.Formulaic parenting and why there’s a better way.The complexity of our kids and how that impacts our parenting.

    105. Plant the Seeds and Follow the Gentle Nudges with Natasha Rohr

    105. Plant the Seeds and Follow the Gentle Nudges with Natasha Rohr

    This episode is extra special to me (Bethany) because it’s a bit of a full circle moment.
     
    For those of you who have been here since the beginning, you know one of the reasons I started our blog + podcast is because I wanted to share the real and relatable parts of life. I felt disconnected and inadequate every time I looked online at the picture perfect feeds, and it was super discouraging and lonely. I wanted to change that and build a community of people who could relate and wanted to share the “real” and grow alongside us. 
     
    Well today, we are sharing a conversation that we had with one of our listeners in Oklahoma who we have never met before, but because of the podcast, we have developed a great friendship and been able to share and connect over the real parts of life!
     
    Today, Natasha Rohr is talking about all things life, motherhood, and purpose. We have a candid conversation just as if we were sitting together in real life. Natasha also shares about a book club that she started and I’m a part of and have been loving!
     
    I’m excited for you to hear this conversation and be reminded that we are all along on this crazy life journey together. It’s never in the surface level conversations about material things and keeping up with the joneses where we connect, but in the deeper things. Thank you for being part of our community! I hope this episode encourages you today.
     
    Episode Highlights: 
    A little on Natasha’s story. Sharing some realness about motherhood and life. The importance of the “silent work” that we do. Why we should focus on planting the “small seeds.” Why purpose is sometimes hard.

    104. Do You Struggle with Hard Conversations? with Nicole Unice

    I (Bethany) have been WAITING to share this episode with you, and I’m so glad that today is finally the day!
     
    Nicole Unice is a counselor, leadership coach, sought after speaker, and we have been looking forward to having her as a guest on the podcast to talk to us about something I feel we can all improve on: having tough conversations. 
     
    But before we even dive into the topic of tough conversations, Nicole shares some absolute gold for us parents in the first few minutes of the episode. We recorded this episode nearly a month ago, and her advice is still ringing in my head daily.
     
    As we begin to dig into the topic of hard conversations, Nicole shares a fresh perspective on how we should be handling our relationships when it comes to hard things. She is real and relatable, but most importantly, everything she teaches stems from God’s word. We learned so much in this episode and it’s only scratching the surface of what she covers in her new book, The Miracle Moment, which comes out this month. Don’t miss this episode and if you love what she shares, be sure to pre-order The Miracle Moment today to take advantage of all of the preorder bonuses they are offering!
     
    Episode Highlights: 
    A little on Nicole’s story. The importance of wisdom and a special reminder to parents about pursuing dreams. The importance of everyday relationships. How to navigate conflicts due to differing personalities. Boundaries and why they are essential in relationships.
