Women from all walks need one constant in their life…connection. It’s what brings us together, keeps our hearts full, and shapes us into the women that we are.

We are Nicole Goggins, Collette Brunson, and Kirsten Brockner and we started this project with the goal of helping women regain connection with one other. As much as technology has brought us together, many of us have never felt more isolated or alone.

Each week we share our stories, our struggles, and our triumphs on our journey to becoming the wives, mothers, sisters, and friends that we are as well as the tools we’re discovering that make our lives more meaningful.

We hope that our stories will help you feel more comfortable in sharing your own journey with those that you care about and help you build deeper relationships with the people you love.

We can't wait to share our journey with you!

    Ripple Effect | Shauna Sauer

    Ripple Effect | Shauna Sauer

    Shauna Sauer is a Mom to 5 and Nonna to 3 grandkids with 2 more on the way. She has experienced much in her life including the divorce of her parents, losing her dad to suicide, becoming a step-mom, starting her own business with her husband, and graduating college with 3 small kids. All of these experiences prepared her for her biggest challenge, which happened in 2012 when she lost her oldest daughter in a texting and driving accident. Taylor Sauer was headed home from college when she decided to start texting and posting on social media. Her final post read, "Driving and Facebooking is not safe, haha." The accident got a lot of media attention, which in turn helped the Sauer Family change the laws about texting and driving in Idaho with the state recently passing a Hands Free law. Since the accident Shauna has shared her story with hundreds at schools, companies, driver's ed classes, church groups, and many others. She continues to share the story of how Taylor's decision to use her phone affected her family and hopes to change how people both young and old view this deadly addiction. Texting and driving creates a ripple effect...But Taylor's story also has created a positive Ripple Effect by Shauna sharing her story and saving so many lives. We were so honored to hear Shauna and Taylor's story and hope you share this with others and remember to "PUT IT DOWN" Don't let your send be the end...

    Everyone Loves Nipples! | Dannie Nicholson

    Everyone Loves Nipples! | Dannie Nicholson

    Dannie is a mom of 3 boys, divorced and remarried, a breast cancer survivor, barre3 instructor, an artist, an areola micro pigmentation specialist specialist and a Christian. All of these things have come together and created the opportunity to empower breast cancer survivors-and all women-to rebuild after trauma (whether from cancer or other circumstances). She is Idaho's first areola micro pigmentation specialist! She has seen over 350 patients and started a non-profit Tit For Tat Collective aimed at helping breast cancer survivors with all aspects of recovery and treatment, also providing services to those who cannot afford the procedure.  
    Through Dannie's experience as a Barre3 instructor over the past 2 years, she has learned that many women (not just cancer survivors) are at odds with their bodies. Her goal is to creat a safe space for ALL women to begin to put themselves back together so that true, meaningful and lasting healing can begin and flourish. This begins with self-love for everyone. 
    You can find Dannie and her photography and micropigmentation contact info. at dannienicholson.com and instagram @whatablessedmess

So relatable!!!

Sharing her journey feels like I'm sitting down with my 3 big sisters - being equipped for the journey of womanhood, parenting and friendship. Thank you ladies for sharing your stories and journeys!!!

Not for the average modern woman

This podcast is a no for me. I feel like these women all share one perspective and it’s very out of touch for me. I do not relate to rich white women. I think their experiences are vanilla and they are very stepford wives. It seems they want to pay themselves on the back and discuss how perfect their lives are. It’s out of touch. I think only a very specific type of listener will enjoy this - their real life friends.

❤️❤️❤️

One of the few podcasts where I am sure to listen to every episode. Love the focus on connection and they’re so relatable. Definitely recommend these ladies!
