    232 | 4 Mindsets for Summer Balance (the last episode of the season!)

    Please take a 2-minute survey!
    If you have kids on a traditional school schedule in the U.S., two things are true: 1) it’s summer break, and 2) the children will be home for the next 10-ish weeks. Summer balance is different than schoolyear balance. But as we will learn today, balance isn’t so much about what we do, but what we think about what we do. Today I’m sharing four mindsets to find your summer balance.  Also, at the end of this episode I share my plans for summer balance and how you can connect with me.  For show notes, click here.

    230 | What I Learned from Raising 5 Teens: A Tribute to Sarah Turner (3/9/69-3/4/24) Pt. 1

    In February 2022, I had the privilege of interviewing my dear friend, Sarah Turner, for a two-part episode devoted to the challenges of parenting teenagers. At the time of the recording, Sarah was in remission from an aggressive cancer. Sadly, a few months later, the cancer returned, and she passed away on March 4, 2024. As a tribute to Sarah, I am replaying our conversation. For show notes click here.

    227 | A Holistic Approach to Hormone Balance w/Leisha Drews

    What you may consider a “normal” period (moodiness, cramping, breast tenderness, fatigue) my guest would call “red flags” of hormone imbalance. But it doesn’t have to be this way! If you’ve been told the only solution to your discomfort is a prescription for birth control, buckle up for a candid conversation about hormones, monthly cycles, and perimenopause. Leisha Drews is here to offer a holistic approach that prioritizes nutrition, stress levels, and rest so that you can show up as the best mom you can be. For show notes click here.
