I can relate!

It’s clear these two are real friends having real conversations and I’m grateful they’ve allowed us into their relevant and easygoing chats. They had me smiling, nodding in agreement, tearing up a bit and relaxing my shoulders in relief that I’m not alone! Looking forward to hearing more!

Meant to listen to just ONE...

I binged the first three when I meant to just listen to one. These two friends share their various experience being 40s+ and some encouragement. A quick listen, each podcast focuses on a topic and action item. I laughed and nodded my head in agreement—enjoying hearing these women talking honestly about busy and way less-than-perfect lives. Can’t wait to hear more.

Best of Times Worst of Times

I love the conversation between the two hosts. Both bring a different perspective and wisdom. I felt as if they were speaking every mom’s messy emotions at the midlife stage. How the joy and the grief during midlife are commingled. If you are a midlife mom- you will be both encouraged and equipped by Amelia and Brenda.
