    Cancel culture, second chances and forgiveness

    Cancel culture, second chances and forgiveness

    Do you know what “cancel culture” actually means? It’s okay if you didn’t, we didn’t either until recently. Today we discuss cancel culture, some recent examples in the media and talk through the dynamic social media plays in our world on whether people should have second chances. This leads us to talk about forgiveness and Neil opens up about his feelings toward the people who shot and killed his brother Dave 18 months ago, and what he’s doing to process and work through that situation. We conclude with some thoughts about how cancel culture can be a good thing when done in the right way, and how to move toward forgiveness if you’re struggling with that too.

    Schooling in a pandemic: homeschool, online and distance learning options and advice from a Utah State Board of Education member Laura Belnap

    Schooling in a pandemic: homeschool, online and distance learning options and advice from a Utah State Board of Education member Laura Belnap

    Distance learning, homeschooling, online education oh my! All of the facebook mom groups I belong to are exploding right now with questions and discussion threads with hundreds of comments from other parents panicking about their options for this fall, what to do, what their options even are and how to decide what's best for their children and their schooling this fall. Today I'm interviewing a dear friend of mine, Laura Belnap, who is the MOST qualified person I know to speak on this subject who will be able to break all of this down for us parents.
    Laura Collier Belnap has her bachelor's and master’s in education, is a pioneer in homeschooling and online education in the state of Utah, where she helped establish online education in 2002, working as the director of Utah Online Academies for three different school districts. She is currently the director of Utah Online Schools which serves over 10,000 students with 102 teachers and staff.
    She has served on several different nonprofit boards and received the Soccer Mom of the Nation Award, the “Innovation in Education Award,”  and most recently  the Jon M. Hunstman award for Innovation. 
    She schooled her children at home for more than 14 years which changed her life and her relationship with her children.
    Laura is active in legislative, community and religious causes. Laura is the proud mother of six children and 10 beautiful grandchildren and is married to her high school sweetheart Eric Belnap. On a personal note, she has been a lifelong mentor to me and each of my siblings and has had an enormous impact on each of our lives.
    She was elected to the Utah state board of Education in 2014 where she serves as the finance chair.

    Civility in unrest: why we desperately need more kindness and awareness in times of trouble

    Civility in unrest: why we desperately need more kindness and awareness in times of trouble

    Have you noticed that during the most crazy year that any of us have ever seen in our lifetime, we’re also seeing common courtesy and civility fade, especially in online interactions? Today Neil and I discuss why civility, kindness and respect are SO KEY to making progress and surviving all the challenges we face in this world. We talk about why it’s vital that we pay attention to what we’re saying in front of our kids, and the tone we’re using to express our opinions, putting ourselves in the shoes of others before criticizing, and just offering more grace and kindness to others as we navigate our families through uncharted waters.

    Strengthening marriage: tips and takeaways that have changed our marriage

    Strengthening marriage: tips and takeaways that have changed our marriage

    “Does anyone stay together anymore?” And “is anyone actually happy in their marriage, or is it all smoke and mirrors?” These are some of the comments I saw on social media a couple weeks ago after the announcement of Dave and Rachel Hollis’s divorce. While we obviously have no idea what happened there, it sparked a lot of conversations in my life and even between Neil and me about what really keeps people together and what the makeup is of a happy marriage. Today we’re sharing some of the tips, advice and actionable takeaways that have greatly helped strengthen our marriage that we hope will help you too.

    “There seems to be a superstition among many thousands of our young [men and women] who hold hands and smooch in the drive-ins that marriage is a cottage surrounded by perpetual hollyhocks to which a perpetually young and handsome husband comes home to a perpetually young and [beautiful] wife. When the hollyhocks wither and boredom and bills appear the divorce courts are jammed. …
    “Anyone who imagines that bliss [in marriage] is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed.
    “[The fact is] most putts don’t drop. Most beef is tough. Most children grow up to be just people. Most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration. Most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. …
    “Life is like an old-time rail journey—delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed.
    “The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride” (“Big Rock Candy Mountains,” Deseret News, 12 June 1973, A4).

Highly Recommend

I look forward to each chance I get to listen to one of these podcasts. I love how open and honest they are and I always leave feeling inspired.

Ciara! This Beat Is ,

Like a Convo with a Good Friend

I look forward to Monday’s and getting to hear a new podcast episode! Each episode is like a nice chat with a friend about REAL topics I’d talk about with a friend! I equally like when Corrine interviews someone, or when it’s just Corrine and Neil talking about their business, marriage, faith, etc. The topics are always different but ALWAYS either applicable or just interesting to me. Thanks, Corrine and Neil!

Love Love Love!
