    How to get out of Debt and Find Financial Freedom

    How to get out of Debt and Find Financial Freedom

    Hey friends! Welcome to Girls Night!

    I’m so excited about today’s episode. Today we’re talking about how to get out of debt!

    I wanted to do an episode on this topic because I know there are so many women in our community who are really struggling with their finances right now.

    There are so many things you dream of doing in life, but debt is standing in the way of all of them. You want financial freedom, but reaching that point seems confusing, daunting, and like it will require an unthinkable amount of sacrifice to achieve.

    I totally understand that feeling. I’ve been there too. But the things we’re talking about in today’s episode have helped me so much to get control of my financial life, and I truly believe they’ll do the same for you.

    And to help us with this, I invited my friend Rachel Cruze back on the show! Rachel is an author, financial expert and host of The Rachel Cruze Show. I knew I needed to have Rachel on for this episode because she’s helped countless people get out of debt and achieve financial freedom — and the way she does it is so approachable and actually doable.

    I can’t wait for you to hear from her.

    How to get Pregnant — Everything you Need to Know When You're Ready to Start Trying

    How to get Pregnant — Everything you Need to Know When You're Ready to Start Trying

    Hey friends! Welcome to Girls Night!

    I’m so excited for today’s episode! Today we’re talking about how to get pregnant — everything you need to know when you’re ready to start trying.

    I’ve been wanting to do this episode for years now, because this is something my friends and I have been talking about at our real life girls nights for a really long time.

    If you’re anything like me, the last time you got a full overview of your reproductive system was also the last time you took a health class. Which again, if you’re anything like me, was in high school, and you were too busy trying not to die of embarrassment to really pay attention to what was going on.

    Also, for the longest time, I was mostly focused on how NOT to get pregnant. So when I actually wanted TO get pregnant, I had no idea where to start.

    Okay… I knew where to start… but I didn’t know much more than that.

    But really, there’s so much that goes into it, and while yes, I have a great doctor, and most of my friends do too, the really important “how to get pregnant” information is something we passed around to each other.

    It was my friend Hanna that told me that you can only get pregnant for a short window of time each month. (ESSENTIAL information!) It was Kelsey who told me how long it typically takes to get pregnant, and who talked me through how I might feel if it didn’t happen right away (Which, of course, it didn’t.) My dear friend Ann was my practitioner for a while there, and so she was the one telling me which prenatal vitamin to take and also the one who referred me to our fertility clinic when the time came.

    It’s not an exaggeration to say that my friends directly contributed to the lives of my babies — whether through emotional support, encouragement, or sending me the link to an ovulation predictor kit on Amazon. And I love that. That’s exactly how it should be, right? And so that’s why it was so important to me to capture the conversations we have been having over the past few years and to share them with you.

    But because I didn’t want to accidentally steer you wrong, I wanted to make sure to bring a professional on the show to talk us through the details. So today’s guest is my new friend, Rebecca Helie.

    Becca is a Certified Nurse Midwife and provides full-spectrum women’s health care. In her spare time, she also runs a women’s health account on Instagram where she provides free, evidence-based information all about women’s health! I’ve been following along with Becca for a while now and just love her content and resources! I’m so excited for you to hear from her!

    She’s going to bring us back to the basics and explain how our bodies work in a really practical way. She’s also going to walk us through the steps we need to take when we’re ready to start trying to have a baby.

    I’m so honored to get to talk about this together.

    For the Girl who is Convinced Online Dating Doesn’t Work

    For the Girl who is Convinced Online Dating Doesn’t Work

    Hey friends! Welcome to Girls Night!

    I’m so excited about today’s episode. Today we’re talking about online dating and how to do it well!

    So, here’s the thing, I think we fall into a few different camps when it comes to the topic of online dating. A lot of us want to try online dating, but we are totally nervous about it. We don’t know if it’s the right fit, the right next step, and we’re not sure how to do it successfully.

    On the other hand, I know there are a lot of us who have really given online dating a try and we have come out the other side totally exhausted, discouraged, and burned out. It’s just not working.

    Friend, I promise, whatever group you find yourself in, you’re not alone there. Today’s conversation is going to dig deep into the fears and frustrations we have about online dating, while also giving us lots of encouragement – the kind of encouragement that might even have you reconsider your outlook on online dating altogether!

    And the woman who’s going to walk us through this is a Girls Night favorite and my dear friend, Kat Harris. Kat is the Co-Founder of the online publication, The Refined Woman, and host of The Refined Collective Podcast. She’s also the author of an amazing book called, Sexless in the City.

    Kat is the go-to expert when it comes to online dating. I had the honor of helping out with a workshop she did about online dating a few months ago, and as I was listening to her teach, her knowledge, wisdom, and insight seriously blew me away.

    In this episode, Kat’s going to teach us how to shift our mindsets and attitudes around online dating, how to set up our dating profiles so that we stand out, how to make our online dating experience better, and so much more! I can’t wait to share this with you!!

    “What’s for Dinner?” — A Meal Planning Guide that will Actually Make your Life Easier

    “What’s for Dinner?” — A Meal Planning Guide that will Actually Make your Life Easier

    Hey friends! Welcome to Girls Night!

    I’m so excited about today’s episode. Today we’re talking about how to make a meal plan that will actually make your life easier.

    Alternate titles for today’s episode are: 


    A meal planning guide for people who are terrible at meal planning

    Stephanie finally gets unstuck in an area of life that has been frustrating her every single day for years. 


    So, I know that some of the women in our community are excellent cooks. They feel comfortable in the kitchen, and their favorite question to answer is, “What’s for dinner?” I wish that was the case for me, but it’s totally not.

    I’m the takeout queen. And although I’ve tried meal planning more times than I can count, I’ve never been able to do it in a way that makes my life easier.

    In fact, it always seems to make my life harder. I could break out in hives just thinking about it!

    When I think about meal planning, I picture a complicated app full of recipes I don’t actually want to make. I picture the app spitting out a grocery list that’s the length of a CVS receipt, and I picture me spending too much time and too much money on meals I’m not actually excited about eating in the first place.

    This plan didn’t make my life easier, it’s made it 10X harder.

    And so I always end up tossing out my meal plan (and the whole weekend I spent making it!) and just end up winging it — somehow surprised and frustrated every single day when at 5pm we have to (AGAIN!) answer the question, “What do we want to do for dinner?”

    So when I got the opportunity to have Kendra Adachi back on the show to tell us about her new book, The Lazy Genius Kitchen, I was excited, but also thought that whatever tips she had probably wouldn’t help me.

    I’m so happy I was wrong. This conversation was honestly life-changing for me. I can’t wait for you to hear it.

    How to NOT Dread your Period (Yes, it’s Actually Possible!)

    How to NOT Dread your Period (Yes, it’s Actually Possible!)

    Hey friends! Welcome to Girls Night!

    Friends, I’m so excited about today’s episode. This is such an important topic! Today we’re talking all about our periods!

    I’m excited about this episode because if you’re anything like me, you don’t spend much time learning about your period. You are pretty sure you know the basics — after all, you’ve lived with it for years now. It’s a normal part of your life.

    But also, if you’re anything like me, there are really hard parts about your period that negatively impact your quality of life. Maybe you have terrible cramps, or really bad PMS, maybe your period is super irregular or really painful, but it’s always been that way so you’ve just sort of tried to accept it.

    That’s how I’ve been for years. I’ve been frustrated by my period, had issues with my period, and just overall hated my period at times, but I honestly just didn’t know there was a different way.

    If you can relate to any of those things, I’m so excited for you to hear this conversation.

    Our guest for today’s episode is Berrion Berry. Berri is a menstrual health educator, practitioner and the creator of Optimize Your Flo. And in this episode she is teaching us everything we never learned about our periods — things I wish I knew so much sooner. We’re talking about alleviating pain, navigating our hormonal shifts, and so much more.

    You guys, I learned SO much in this episode. There were things I’ve always done that I learned I should NOT be doing, and there are ways of embracing the changes in our hormones throughout the month that has totally revolutionized the way I view my period and honestly, the way I live. This was such a good conversation!

    So make sure you put on your coziest sweatpants and grab a pen and paper because you don’t want to miss out on this!

    How you Know When it's Time to End a Relationship (and How to Actually do it!)

    How you Know When it's Time to End a Relationship (and How to Actually do it!)

    Hey friends! Welcome to Girls Night!

    Today’s episode is a harder one, but also a really important one. Today we’re talking about how you know when it's time to end a relationship (and how to actually do it!).

    I wanted to do this episode because I know there are women listening to this who are currently in a relationship, maybe one they’ve been in for years, but things have been feeling off lately and you just can’t seem to figure out why. You’ve tried your best to communicate your feelings, but nothing seems to change. You know deep down that you might need to end things, but you’re feeling hesitant because you’ve invested so much time and energy into this relationship. And really, you’re just feeling stuck!

    If you’re nodding your head, you’re not alone in those feelings. And I have just the right friend to talk us through this and that’s Kenz Durham from Delight Ministries! We actually had Kenz on another Girls Night episode where she briefly mentioned ending a long term relationship with her boyfriend at the time and that it was one of the hardest decisions she ever had to make. She casually mentioned that we could do a whole podcast episode about it. And so…here we are, doing exactly that! 

    In this episode, Kenz shares her story – the things she’s glad she did and the things she wished she did differently. I’m so excited for you to hear from her!

    One more thing – I know there are some of you listening who are not in a place of ending a relationship, but so many of the things Kenz shares applies to other situations too – other areas of our lives where we need to say goodbye, walk away, end something and we haven’t known how. So if you’re in a similar situation, this episode is for you too!

Fun Wisdom for Girls in Their 20s

My cousin shared a couple Episodes with me as I’m starting my mom journey in a new town. While I’m looking for something a little less feelings based and a little more scripture based, I love Stephanie’s heart and her podcast always leaves me encouraged. This is the breath of fresh air I needed as I get my literal fresh air walking my son in his stroller around our new neighborhood.

My favorite podcast.

If it weren’t for girl’s night, I wouldn’t even listen to podcasts. Stephanie is a real life best friend and I recommend everything about her. She is funny and kind and transparent and I’m grateful to her for all she does. It’s a truly fun listen every week.
