Come on in, kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, and grab a coffee, because we have plenty to chat about! As a mom, you know much of your time is spent devoted to family, with the majority of that time in a chaotic cattle drive of errands, activities, and meals on the run.

Ready for a fresh perspective on what you’ve been living through? You’re in the right place. And starting today, you’re no longer in this alone.

Each week we’ll explore the realities of your day-to-day family life in this modern era of non-stop texts, memes, and technology.

After all, how many rules can we have? How many days do you stay in your workout clothes until the afternoon? How many recipes can you save?

Families are living breathing entities that need to be nurtured, from our nuclear family to our global family, and let’s be honest: most of that nurturing is going to fall on your shoulders.

Does it really all begin and end with self-care? Is that the answer?

Tune in each week as we figure it out together.

With our amazing guests and thought-provoking discussions, we’ll take a holistic look at family health: emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual.

Whether it’s a micro perspective of family involving healthy snacks, teenagers with attitude, stressed out husbands/partners, potty training, eldercare, grandchildren, or a macro perspective of world events, including flu, earthquakes, weather, and finances, we will find a way together.

Take a deep breath, exhale ~ and know that you’re not alone

    EP 133: Revealing Secrets, Stories Told & I Called Her Mary 

    EP 133: Revealing Secrets, Stories Told & I Called Her Mary 

    Welcome to The Family Balancing Act! Where restoring the heart and ART of motherhood starts with one conversation at a time. I'm Maureen Huntley, your host, board-certified Integrative holistic and functional medicine health coach, Emotional Freedom Technique practitioner, mom, grandmother, wife, and CEO of my family's home operations.
    I absolutely loved my interview with, Tom, Maggie, and Mary (Maggie), as they recount the life of Peg. Listen in, you too will be pulled into a remarkable story, of love, choices, consequences, hope, and forgiveness.

    Peg O’Hagan grew up in Ireland before immigrating to America. She was married to
    Mick for over fifty years. They had four beautiful children together. After her husband’s passing, she felt comfortable enough to share her story with others. On this episode of The Family Balancing Act we walk Peg’s path, as her remarkable story of her resilient life is revealed to her family and how her first born was not a “secret” she ever wanted to hide. Peg was interviewed for this memoir by her son-in-law, Dr. Tom Gorman. As Peg’s story was retold and recorded, Dr. Gorman transcribed the notes and authored the memoir. Mary, Peg’s daughter who was given up for adoption, was also interviewed and her story was captured in the memoir.


    Dr. Tom Gorman, superintendent of schools in a northeast New Jersey school district, has worked in public education for over 25 years. He is married to Maggie, who is a daughter of Peg, and is also in education. They have three children. Mary (Maggie) Boler, now retired from education and has been married to her husband, Tom, for over 40 years. Together they have two children.

    EP 130: The Fur-Family Balancing Act

    How is your fur-family balancing act going? Have you always had a pet or pets? The love and chaos can be rewarding and draining. It’s not easy, but it’s all in the family balancing act. Especially, when it comes to the goodbyes. When our pets have passed, either on their own or because their life had become so painful we make that decision, it's heart wrenching. We have all cried our eyes out during the goodbye, and for days, months, and sometimes years, as we reflect back on the beautiful memories we have. Our fur family is part of our family. We are loved unconditionally by our pets. Just being in their presence can lift us up and hold our hearts. In episode 130, we'll be diving into balancing the fur family and all that comes with it, because we have a lot to talk about today with my returning guest, Yup! Glenys Eldred - who continues to grow her fur family! Glenys is - Taosist Priest, healer, creator of Glenys Eldred Healing Hearts and Energy, Renegade Zen, and sustainability expert.I’m Maureen your host, board-certified Integrative holistic and functional medicine health coach, mom, grandmother, wife, and CEO of my family home operations.
