    EP 25: Ways to Keep the Connection Going with your Spouse when they Work Shift Work

    EP 25: Ways to Keep the Connection Going with your Spouse when they Work Shift Work

    I think we can all agree that it takes WORK, actual work, to keep the connection and fire going in our marriages. What was once super easy when you were first dating, maybe isn’t always easy anymore because well, life happens. You get immersed in your jobs, have kids, more household duties, you grow older and get used to the mundane, plus the demands of the job and the impact it has on your relationship.

    Today we are discussing 5 ways to keep the connection and fire going with your spouse when they work shift work (and no matter what they schedule is).

    Hint: they are NOT the typical answers you hear for non-first responder families like sleeping in the same bed because well, we CAN'T do that.

    EP 23: What Happens When Cops Don't Talk with Susan Simons

    EP 23: What Happens When Cops Don't Talk with Susan Simons

    Police officers need healthy coping strategies for dealing with the job and the trauma that comes with it. When cops don't have coping mechanisms or don't talk about the job, we do see signs and symptoms of that impact.

    To talk about those signs and symptoms, and why it is so important to talk, we brought on guest Susan Simons.

    Susan Simons is President and Founder of Under the Shield, leading subject matter expert in First Responder Stress and Post Traumatic Stress Injury as well as a podcast host of Fight in Progress.  Through her non-profit, Under the Shield, Inc., she has created the only Stress Coach Certification in the United States specifically for law enforcement, first responders, military, and their families.
     
    Susan talks about her theory of The Psychological Garbage Can and how we as family members can recognize when that garbage can is not being emptied.

    This is an episode you don't want to miss.

    EP 22: Support for First Responder Families with Taya Kyle

    EP 22: Support for First Responder Families with Taya Kyle

    First responder and military couples often have bigger asks of them compared to civilian couples. These careers ask more out of couples and families. But sadly, it can be hard to find support and resources for the tens of thousands of service families that need them.
    In today’s episode I am joined by Taya Kyle. Taya Kyle is the widow of Chris Kyle-American Sniper, Executive Director of The Taya and Chris Kyle Foundation | Service Family Strong, New York Times Best Selling Author of American Wife, and a huge advocate for first responder and military families. Our community was so blessed to have the TACK-F as the Grand Prize Sponsor of the 4th Annual Police Wife Conference back in April.

    EP 21: Financial Preparedness for First Responders and their Families

    Being financially prepared is important for everyone, but even more so for first responder families. Not only is it smart to have an emergency fund in case of an injury, change in career, family emergency or something worse, but there are other ways to prepare, too.

    Joining me today is Courtney from Heroes Financial Coaching where we talk about emergency funds,  paying off debt and life insurance.
     
    Courtney runs a financial coaching business for first responder families where she helps them reach their financial goals and be financially prepared for whatever life throws their way.

Great episodes that fit into daily life

This podcast is one of my favorites! Not only are the episodes relatable and spark conversations with my husband, they’re also in bite sized episodes that can easily fit into your daily life. You can easily listen on the car ride to work, while cleaning the house, exercising, or when you just want 20 minutes to yourself.

Grateful for This Podcast

My husband recently completed the police academy and is in FTO. It’s a whole new world for both of us — not to mention we have our first baby on the way. I’m grateful for this podcast addressing a lot of issues I know I’ll encounter but haven’t yet. Knowing there are thousands of LEO spouses/partners going through the same things is comforting. 💙
