    Art, Faith, and Motherhood with Holly Beals, Mixed Media Painter, Wife, Boy Mama

    Art, Faith, and Motherhood with Holly Beals, Mixed Media Painter, Wife, Boy Mama

    This week on the Mindful Miri Podcast, we learn about Holly Beals, mixed media painter, wife, and boy mama of two. 

    We talk about self-expression through art, motherhood, being a woman, and having faith in a higher power.   

    Subscribe and listen to the Mindful Miri Podcast wherever you get your podcasts or here: Mindful Miri Podcast (buzzsprout.com).

    About Holly:
    After graduating from Chico State with a BA in communications, she worked as a graphic designer for six years. But new adventures were calling and she was blessed with the opportunity to teach conversational English to college students in Tibet.  It was there, one day in her tiny apartment, where she gathered up what I had on hand: scrap paper, Mod Podge and acrylic paint.  She was trying to make it through an emotionally-challenging season and what emerged on canvas from that struggle was beautiful and satisfying. So began her love for mixed media painting.

    Now, in the midst of yet another great adventure, being a mother to two young boys, she continues my love for mixed media painting and cherish time in the art studio.  She mainly works with acrylics and handmade or scrap paper on wood panel. Texture, layering, unexpected color combinations and capturing the people/places around her are all reoccurring curiosities.

    Some things she'll never stop believing: “Life has meaning, each person is significant, and The One who made all things is beautiful beyond comprehension.”

    How the Outside Makes the Inside Better with Jeanne Gallagher, Financial Advisor & Podcaster

    How the Outside Makes the Inside Better with Jeanne Gallagher, Financial Advisor & Podcaster

    This week, we talk about how the outside makes the inside better, naming it to tame and claim it, challenging your inner critic, implant removal, and raising kids that have a healthy self-image with Jeanne Gallagher.


    Jeanne Gallagher is an Investment Adviser Representative and Registered Representative with GWN Securities Inc.
    Seaside Solutions: The terms "learning" and "teaching" are interchangeable. My responsibility is to learn about you, our client. Together, we will delve into your goals and dreams and determine your personalized financial path. Your responsibility is to teach me about you. Through this process, we will pause when necessary to discuss financial concepts, building the foundation of Financial Wellness.
    Discover Rising Tides: Being outside is very important to me. There are many ways to be outside. It can be as simple as sitting in the grass on a warm summer day. Walking barefoot in the grass or on the beach, feeling the sand between your toes. Other times, it is important to be challenged. A heart-pounding, sweaty hike or a paddle “into the wind”. Something to clear the thoughts and cobwebs of the mind.
    Being a solopreneur, allotting time to be outside can be downright hard. Thoughts creep on “If I am not working, no one is working”.  She knows there are others out there experiencing the same thing.  She feels the need to talk to them, to support them, to acknowledge them, to learn from them. She feels we can all support, acknowledge and learn from each other. That's how the Discover Rising Tides Podcast was born.

Just what I needed

I absolutely love Mindful Miri’s Podcast! I usually put her in my head (my ear buds) when I’m on a hike or taking my sisters dog for a walk. Instantly I was drawn to her mission of empowering women to gain self love and body freedom! What I love most is that I can feel she is being truly her authentic self. If feels like I’m listening to my friends talk and often times I find myself responding. That’s for being my weekly pick me up!
