Wow!

Audreys podcast is my go-to place for words of encouragement and inspiration. I am always positively impacted by her fabulous choice of authors and experts to interview and the guidance they share. I come away from her episodes feeling uplifted and hopeful about the parenting challenges I'm facing on any given day. Audreys curiosity and care for young people is evident in all that she does.

Simple and powerful

This podcast is in my heavy rotation and should be in yours. I’m a summer camp professional and parent of three. Despite lots of training and a career of youth development I find my dad self forgetting what my camp self knows and does. Audreys podcast reminds me how to put what i know is good into action by backing it up with current research and examples. I’m a better dad (and camp director) with her nudges and suggestions of how to stay focused on the big picture and my hopes for myself and my kids.

Insightful and Applicable

The Sunshine Parenting podcast is one of six podcasts I keep returning to for insight and growth in my life. Whether Audrey is speaking or she has a guest speaker, the high quality and directly applicable insights and ideas provide direction for improving my parenting and teaching life. I am so thankful for the ongoing learning I receive from this podcast and look forward to listening to it each week.
