    Betrayal Trauma, Relationship Boundaries, and Using Parts Work to Heal with Roxanne Kennedy Granata

    Betrayal Trauma, Relationship Boundaries, and Using Parts Work to Heal with Roxanne Kennedy Granata

    I’m honored to be joined by my inspiring, powerhouse friend, Roxanne Granata, for today’s episode! 
    Roxanne is an Empowered Relationships Coach who specializes in healing the nervous system through Internal Family Systems (IFS - also known as Partswork) and Somatics. Her journey began a little over a decade ago when she experienced betrayal trauma with her now ex-husband, and his hidden addiction to pornography. This path was very painful and made her question herself (and even her sanity) along the way. Ultimately, it led her to experience healing that she didn’t know was possible, a newfound purpose and passion, becoming a published author, and even remarriage.
     
    In this episode, we will cover:
    Roxanne’s story of discovering her first husband’s addiction + the powerful healing journey and new career that happened for her as a result Learning to set boundaries and surrender the outcome, no matter how scary or out of control it feels like Key differences of standard talk therapy vs. EMDR  The power of Partswork (IFS) therapy + what it’s like to actually find and ‘talk’ to a part of you that needs healing Understanding that having awareness and being very intentional about the ‘work’ you’re doing will positively impact and heal your kids + future generations Realizing that it’s not about fixing every aspect of your life, but instead, fixing and healing YOU

    A Mom's Lesson in Moving Forward with Love Instead of Fear with Lisa Brennan

    A Mom's Lesson in Moving Forward with Love Instead of Fear with Lisa Brennan

    I am joined by Lisa Brennan, an incredible person who I've known for a very long time, and I've been eager to have her on the podcast for a while now!
    In January 2018, Lisa and her family started a new chapter in life, after her youngest child shared she was a transgender woman. While this was unexpected and definitely came with adjustments, the Brennan family found that treasuring someone for who they truly are is magical and sacred - it doesn’t have to be scary, or something to hide.
    This was a beautiful conversation, and I hope Lisa’s story encourages you to lead with love, curiosity, and openness, because doing so will only change things for the better!
     
    In this episode, we will cover:
    Lisa’s story of navigating a new journey with her transgender daughter + how this eventually led to her writing a book about everything she learned and experienced How Lisa’s transgender daughter came out to her and her family + the research and resources Lisa started diving into in order to better understand everything The power of time and community that’s incredibly vital when you’re experiencing moments of isolation, and/or stepping into unfamiliar territory The beauty that comes from living authentically and doing what’s placed on your heart, and how this gives others permission to do the same Not being afraid to challenge religious and societal ‘norms’ and proudly embrace who God created you to be Taking time to look within yourself and being open to important issues around you, even if you don’t think you’re affected by them Continually learning and evolving, no matter your age or what you *think* you know

    Healing to the Depths of Your Soul and Nervous System Regulation with Sara Elise Johnson

    Healing to the Depths of Your Soul and Nervous System Regulation with Sara Elise Johnson

    Sara and I connected on our recent mastermind retreat, and the knowledge and energy she radiates is undeniably contagious. Sara is a wife, mom, author, and Life Coach; she helps others transform and move forward in their lives, despite the circumstances they are facing. After experiencing her own physical and mental health battles (one of the biggest being told she would never be able to have children), Sara knew she wanted to turn her pain into purpose. She now supports women with their own healing and rejuvenation in a way that allows them to love and accept their true selves on a deep soul level. 
     
    In this episode, we cover:
    Sara’s life-changing and healing journey with motherhood + why doing mindset work alone is not enough to bring true healing for you The complete identity crisis that rocked Sara, and how it ultimately led to her writing a book Why doing real self-care is what’s going to refuel and recharge you Effective ways to actually ‘overhaul’ your nervous system and promote healing Learning to be your own best friend as you grow and evolve, instead of looking for approval and validation from others Modeling the behavior we want our kids to see so they can build emotional intelligence and resilience, and truly experience the world differently

    Growing Wealth, Living in Two Worlds, and Showing Up as Your Authentic Self with Sadie Schweers

    Growing Wealth, Living in Two Worlds, and Showing Up as Your Authentic Self with Sadie Schweers

    Sadie and I covered a variety of crucial topics in our conversation, and her incredible heart and passion for what she does really shines through. Whether it’s with your career, motherhood, finances, or leaving a legacy for your loved ones, embracing AND boldly showing up as your authentic self in your community (and life) is necessary. What you bring to the table matters, friend, so make sure you own that, and don’t forget to get support where you need it so you can focus on making those big dreams a reality!
     
    In this episode, we will cover:
    The unique trajectory Sadie found herself on during college, and how that ultimately led to her launching a career in the finance space How Sadie empowers her clients to take control of their finances and cheers them on to achieve the goals they’re striving for Utilizing an IRA as an entrepreneur + not worrying about ‘starting small’, because your money will compound and continue working for you Sadie’s beautiful, yet challenging, experience of living in two different ‘worlds’, and how that impacts her in her everyday life Why we HAVE to continue changing the conversation and making our voices heard regarding the farming/ag world and business Honoring and respecting both the solid foundation the previous generation has built + the fresh ideas and perspectives the next generation is presenting Taking ownership and embracing your authentic role in your community + why it’s beneficial to cultivate different types of relationships in different spaces Boldly owning who you are and what you bring to the table, because what you have to offer IS valuable (and needed) Understanding that it’s okay to ‘stretch your boundaries’ and relinquish control in certain areas, so you’re able to grow and focus on your dreams

    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.
