Nothing is Wasted with Ruth Chou Simons
Ruth Chou Simons is here, reminding us growth and goodness can be found even in the minutes (or months!) we’re tempted to believe are wasted. Those creative projects you thought went nowhere? Meaningful. Sitting with your toddler or teen talking about mind-numbing topics? Meaningful. No matter what you’re facing, we hope this conversation encourages you to slow down, let God reroute you however He’d like, and embrace the idea that inefficiency sometimes means making room for what’s most important.
What We're Learning About Friendship (Part Two)
For part two of our friendship series, we’re chatting about what’s in our friendship toolboxes. From taking initiative (rather than taking turns) to learning our friends’ love languages, we’re getting practical about how to show up for our people. We talk about porch drop-offs, tiny thoughtful gestures, the beauty of accepting help, and loving our friends’ kids well. We hope this episode encourages you to be the friend you want to have. Because, ultimately, that’s the best place to start!
What We’re Learning About Friendship (Part One)
Tap tap. Is this thing on? Hey friends, we’re back! Today we’re kicking off a brand new season with two new hosts (welcome Katie + Jill!), and a two-part series on friendship. In part one, we’re chatting about lessons learned, convictions we’ve had along the way, and, most importantly, the perspective we’re practicing when it comes to friendships (new and old). Hint! It has a lot to do with grace, going with the flow, and leaning into gratitude no matter what season of friendship we’re in.
Encore Episode: Motherhood + Loneliness (Ashlee's Favorite)
We thought it would be fun to end season four by revisiting some of our most loved episodes. Today is Ashlee’s favorite, where we unpack why motherhood feels so isolating sometimes. Don't miss the episode’s new intro and wrap up, with Indiana, April, and Ashlee's final chat together! Whether you’re new to motherhood altogether or a veteran mom who hasn’t found her tribe yet, we hope you can relate to this vulnerable conversation and walk away inspired to put yourself out there.
Encore Episode (April's Favorite): This Is How We Don't
We're wrapping up season four by revisiting our most loved episodes. Today is April’s favorite, where we flip the script on our ‘This Is How We Do’ episodes by sharing what we DON’T do. From outsourcing grocery shopping to not making the bed to not washing our hair—this conversation is full of confessions about our mothering, home upkeep, school involvement, and everything in between.
Encore Episode (Indiana's Favorite): Being A Good Friend In Hard Seasons
We're wrapping up season four by revisiting some of our most loved episodes. Today is Indiana’s favorite, where we talk about some of the hard seasons that we've walked through. From miscarriage and postpartum depression to infidelity and cancer diagnoses, we're sharing some stories for the very first time and inviting you into our "circle of trust" this week. We also talk about the ways our people showed up for us and the lessons we've learned when the season is hard and the answers aren't coming easily.
Oh Coffee and Crumbs...I love you girls! I have a lot of theology podcasts that I listen to, which I love, but sometimes I just need a brain break and a good laugh. Coffee and Crumbs is that for me. After a long day or when I’m feeling burned out, I pull up my weekly C&C epidsode. I love just hearing you talk about all the real mom things. You make me laugh out loud regularly. You provide real mom camaraderie and reassurance that I need ❤️
This podcast makes me so happy. It’s positive, heartfelt, and seems to meet me at the right place every time. I loved the recent season opener about friendship - it resonated deep and also inspired me to work on that aspect of my life, which has taken a major backseat since child rearing began. Thank you, ladies!
Love these ladies! Huge fan
I absolutely adore this podcast!!! It’s very relatable, funny and relevant. April is life! She makes me laugh and cry and I am so glad she’s in my earbuds
