    A Chat with My Husband Andrew: Farming, Marriage, Fatherhood, and Growth

    A Chat with My Husband Andrew: Farming, Marriage, Fatherhood, and Growth

    Not only are we celebrating the 100th episode of Gather in Growth, but I’m also joined by the love of my life - my husband, Andrew! I polled my IG community for questions they wanted to ask Andrew, and I have plenty of my own topics that we dig into as well, so you better believe this will be fun, and one you do NOT want to miss.
     
    In this episode, we cover:
    How Andrew and I met + how our (initial) long distance relationship positively impacted us Andrew’s change of heart when it came to pursuing farming + navigating challenges that typically come with intergenerational dynamics in farming and ag  Andrew’s expectations with fatherhood + our intentionality with parenting and choosing to do things ‘differently’ from the beginning The importance of ‘putting yourself in your spouse’s shoes’ to really see what they’re going through in their day to day life What it was like for Andrew as I began my personal growth journey + what eventually ‘clicked’ for him to pursue it for himself Why me quitting my job to pursue entrepreneurship was the massive change we absolutely needed in our lives + what this transition was like for our family The growth, healing, and peace that has resulted for both Andrew and I since starting my business + the significant role therapy has played in the process Knowing that there will ALWAYS be hard things, but what truly matters is how you choose to work through them together Understanding that the way you and your partner process things will be different + why a high level of trust with each other is necessary Building resiliency as you work through roadblocks in entrepreneurship (or anything else in life) + why you’ll never have ’it all’ figured out

    Lessons from Lexington: Wins, Challenges, and Ideas from an Impulse Family Trip

    Lessons from Lexington: Wins, Challenges, and Ideas from an Impulse Family Trip

    This impulse family trip was eye-opening (in the best ways possible), and really brought up SO many things for me. It reminded me to deeply think about how I’m spending time with my loved ones, parenting my kids, treating my body, planning and prioritizing, and even, how I’m showing up in community with others in this world (no matter their ideas or perspectives). I hope there’s a little nugget (or two) that you’re able to take from these lessons and apply to your own life, too!
     
    In this episode, we cover:
    The extra frustration and overwhelm that comes with ‘chaos planning’ and simply ‘winging it’ vs. ACTUALLY having a plan and setting yourself up for success Why you HAVE to be willing to give up what feels ‘easy’ for what you really want Being more intentional with being outside and spending time in nature this summer Our recent experience with multiple flat tires on my car + why this was such an important reminder that how we handle stress matters Consistently modeling behaviors and emotions that positively support our kids + the difficult and triggering work that comes from (re)parenting ourselves in the process Getting super clear on your priorities + making the time and space to plan for those things so they actually DO happen Stepping out of your comfort zone and choosing to be in community with other people who have different ideas, perspectives, upbringings, etc.

    Faith Expansion, Awakening The Senses, and Alchemy Through Artistry with Stephanie Simmons

    Faith Expansion, Awakening The Senses, and Alchemy Through Artistry with Stephanie Simmons

    Taking the path to work on yourself and really dig into the hard stuff feels like HELL when you’re in it - it’s far from easy. The soul freedom and liberation that follows though, along with the expansion and acceptance of others is beautiful - it’s all connected, and it all matters. We were created to be in community with others, and we really can learn SO much from other people and their differences. Whether you’re on your own journey of faith expansion, or striving to live a life filled with authenticity, purpose, and peace, I know this episode will inspire you to keep going!
    Stephanie Simmons is a light capturer, story weaver, and loves telling tales through cinematography and photography. Stephanie is a witness to healing, a space holder, a creator, and time turner. Combining music with images, she creates films that take you on a journey. Stephanie transports her clients back in time to sacred moments, to assist with integration and bring back precious memories. Her films sprinkle the planet with light and invite others to join the journey of healing and remembering. Stephanie is passionate about using her hands with pure intention to create films that touch the heart, stir emotion, and shine a light on the sacred work of healing.
     
    In this episode, we will cover:
    Steph’s story of ‘checking all the boxes’ in her life while growing up, to eventually, deconstructing her faith and fully stepping into her most authentic, beautiful self Steph’s journey with finding videography + how she ‘flipped the switch’ and experienced a powerful awakening in 2020 Living authentically + the idea of self-confidence vs. self-worth  The significant role Stephanie’s husband has played in her healing journey What it can look like to slow down and embody a ‘softer’ feminine energy, instead of the fast-paced masculine culture our society runs on The beautiful expansion and acceptance that comes when we’re not afraid of other people and their differences Continually pursuing curiosity and honesty within yourself

    Knowing Your Own Red Flags

    Knowing Your Own Red Flags

    In today’s episode, I want to talk about the importance of knowing your own red flags - specifically, within your body. Not that long ago when I was working outside of the home, I was burning the candle at both ends and juggling ALL.THE.THINGS. I was trying to be everything for everyone, and at the time, I thought that was completely normal - I had adjusted to that way of living. I’ve put in a LOT of effort to get to a place that doesn’t feel like that anymore, but right now, things just feel sort of..hard. My body (primarily my nervous system) has been letting me know it’s feeling all of the chaos and overwhelm and exhaustion, and these feelings are completely clashing with the alignment and peace that it craves (and is now used to).
     
    In this episode, we cover:
    Understanding that the pursuit of growth, healing, and alignment may feel REALLY hard in the moment, but is totally worth it too The powerful awareness that happens when you feel centered and at peace in your life, but have to choose hard things that directly clash against those feelings My recent period from hell paired with a launch week that led to even MORE dysregulation for me Gaining awareness around what alignment actually feels like in your body + finding gratitude for the work you’ve already done to heal and understand yourself better

    Ask Better Questions

    Ask Better Questions

    The work that I’ve been doing the last few years has pushed me to help others step outside of their comfort zones, challenge expectations, and break through limiting beliefs. I’ve LOVED getting to do this, but I’ve also come to the realization that I’m still holding myself back when it comes to questioning, and going against the norm. Maybe you can relate to this in some way; if you can, I want you to give yourself permission to dream, and do, and simply just approach things in a fresh, and different way.
     
    In this episode, we cover:
    Why our society as a whole has lost the ability to think critically, and simply just ‘be’ in conversation with others who have differing beliefs and opinions Agreeing with others because it feels easier, instead of asking questions and sharing a different perspective in fear of ‘rocking the boat’ Why people are a LOT more similar than we may think + understanding how vital community and connection is for all of us My recent realization that I’ve been holding myself back from asking better questions, all for the illusion of peace + why I’m no longer doing this going forward

    The Adventure Begins!

    The Adventure Begins!

    My original plan for this episode was to do more of a ‘vlog’ style, because I recently traveled to a retreat I invested in for myself; I thought it would be fun to share what was happening as I was going through everything! I didn’t end up going that route (mainly because my brain kind of felt like mush every night when I planned to record, due to the fun-filled days and super late nights). I felt surprisingly calm going into this retreat experience, because I put little expectations and stress on myself. I chose to go into this with an open mind, and BOY, now that I’m on the other side and back home with my family, I feel like the next evolution of my business is just bubbling inside of me, waiting to come out in entirely new ways!
     
    In this episode, we cover:
    The crazy magic that happens when you step outside of your comfort zone and surround yourself with others who are doing big, incredible things Finding true alignment with your priorities + the deep realization that you’ll never sacrifice what matters most to you again, simply to achieve a certain result The healing and empowering energy that comes from being in a growth space with others Why your definition of success doesn’t have to be all of the super sexy, ‘flashy’ stuff Understanding that money can be an amplifier for GOOD, and it’s not selfish or greedy to desire more financial resources for you and your family Why growth is something I care SO deeply about + continues to be the underlying theme in my messaging for my podcast, business, and life
