Goals and the Power to Progress
I have fallen in love with setting goals! Almost a year ago, my family and I decided to start setting weekly goals in four categories (intellectual, physical, spiritual, and social). It has changed our lives. We are so much more productive, efficient, and happy since we started being more intentional with how we live our lives. In this episode I share how our family approaches goal-setting and give ideas about how to find what will work for your family!
Parenting in the Digital Age - tips and tricks
There is so much uncharted territory to raising kids today. As we begin 2021, we are navigating life during a worldwide pandemic and heavy, unresolved social justice issues, while relying ever more on technology to connect. Technology is amazing, but with it comes many threats to children and families. Everything good can be turned into evil and used for destructive purposes. Today I want to talk about how to not let that happen!
Time Management (and Much More)
Do you wish you were more efficient with your time? Do you struggle to teach your kids time management? Raising kids in a digital world with so much information and so many opportunities requires developing time management and organization skills in order to reach long-term goals. This episode gives a look into the mom skills of Chelsea Winterholler who has learned a thing (or twenty) about all of the above while allowing her kids to experience natural consequences and reinforcing positive behavior.
Suicide: It's Time to Talk
It’s incredible how a little bit of knowledge and insight can be the difference between hopelessness and real hope. That's what family therapist, Matt Leavenworth is here to provide for us today. He takes a problem that seems insurmountable and breaks it down in a way that parents can tackle. He tells the truth about some of the leading causes of suicide and what parents can do to address it. It's a tough subject, but there's so much hope!
My Reason for Hope - Bonus Christmas Episode
Authenticity and hope are essential pieces of Raising Today's Kids. So in this episode I am opening up my heart to share who I am at my core, and where my foundation of hope comes from. It has everything to do with a baby born in a stable over 2,000 years ago. Merry Christmas!
Adoption - Unexpected Beauty in Our Trials
Raising kids has always been full of trials, but I have learned something about how to approach them through my friend, Lacee Nugent. She is a super intentional mother of a family built through adoption. In this episode she taught me that the best way to find the unexpected beauty is to be humble, to support and encourage others, and to fill your heart with love. Ready to be inspired?

So many helpful parenting tips
I learn so much from Raising Today’s Kids! I feel better prepared as a parent as I consider the most important aspects discussed on this podcast. Brittney has a kindness and strength that inspires and lifts each time I listen, thank you!!
Addresses a spectrum of applicable topics
I love this podcast. Each episode pulls me in. I love her wide range of topics! And each one is applicable. Also, the host isn’t afraid to sometimes address heavy subjects (albeit in a hopeful, sensitive way), topics that every parent must be willing to learn about in order to succeed. We can be loving, nurturing, and fun parents, but if we fail to provide our kids with knowledge and safeguards regarding the exploitation that happens in our world today, which often targets children, we are doing our children a great disservice. We are metaphorically leaving them to the wolves. And if we think, “These heavy topics don’t affect me and my family,” we are kidding ourselves.
