I am so excited to share this conversation with Rachel Macy Stafford. This is something every parent, and every adult, will be relieved and encouraged to hear. Rachel's writing, and her wisdom is this episode, are so validating, accessible, and empowering. And I cannot think of a time when we might need it more. We discuss the three roles for parents she describes in her latest book Live Love Now: Truth-teller, Encourager, and Guide. We touch on each one, and in particular the Guide. Throughout this episode, Rachel shares her own wisdom through story and vulnerability. You will leave wanting to connect more with yourself, and having tracks to run on in connecting with your own kids. This is a soul nourishing episode for all parents, and everyone really, and I know it will leave you feeling refreshed, connected, and encouraged.
