Family Culture is all about blending your individual and collective values and norms to create an interrelated unit. Every family has a culture whether by design or by default. Most of us are unaware of our social conditioning until it is mirrored back to us by our kids. The Family Culture Movement is a show about breaking up with the dominant culture to raise a family with unwavering resilience, calling out dysfunctional patterns, and cultivating an environment of growth and trust.

Join me, Jodi Chaffee, every week with guests from a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences to bring you practical insights, powerful tools, and reliable resources for navigating your family culture journey with intention and compassion. We’re here to support you in implementing best practices and solutions for your family. Everything will be on the table as I discuss topics ranging from media literacy to financial literacy, normalizing sexual health to normalizing family dinners, homeschool, entrepreneurship, and much, much more.

    Get Comfy In Your Country with Lisa Ann Fontana

    Our education system doesn't train citizens in civics, community, citizenship or civility while simultaneously, our culture is geared to shame people for what they do not know an call them apathetic and bad Americans. It's wrong. It's easily fixed and it's why I do what I do.

    What is the solution? To step away from a 2 party system, receiving training in civics, civility, citizenship and community and use that training to serve democracy.

    Questioning the Dominant Culture with Jodi Chaffee

    Questioning the Dominant Culture with Jodi Chaffee

    Welcome to the Family Culture Movement! 

    The main question I ask of all my guests is, what needs to change in the dominant culture according to their area of expertise.

    I was inspired by a BYU Devotional from Jonathan Sandberg in his talk "Healing = Courage + Action + Grace."

Comfy In Your Country, Informative and Inviting. I’m surprised

The Comfy In Your Country episode is fantastic. Especially right now with so much election angst going on, this was a chance to breath. Lisa Ann and Jodi made me feel like I’m not alone in not knowing about civics, voting and how to have a conversation. Our society gets harsh, angry and territorial on this subject.
I didn’t learn this in school and my parents didn’t discuss it. Trying to figure it out is discouraging and stressful…until now. Lisa Ann is the first person that made me feel welcome and comfortable. I feel like she is an old friend and I could ask her anything without judgement.
I’ve gone to her website methepeoplevote.com and it’s not political or cold, rather fun and inspiring. I’m going to have a Welcome Party with my family and one with friends, it’s all laid out step by step. It’s very family friendly too.

Great podcast!

Jodi is great at speaking about family culture and how important it is to figure out yours. Now that my family is homeschooling, it’ll be great to get some ideas from Jodi.
