    16. Uncertain About the Future? Preparing with Hope for What's Ahead.

    16. Uncertain About the Future? Preparing with Hope for What's Ahead.

    I’ve been noticing an interesting common feeling as I’ve been talking many moms lately. I’m seeing that a lot of us have this sense that we need to be preparing ourselves, our homes, and our families for something. Making educational choices for our kids feels really hard right now because life and the future feels rather uncertain and there’s this feeling that even though we are coming out of a pandemic… the world has changed because of it,  and things aren’t going to be going back to how they were, but we’re not sure exactly what the future IS going to look like so we’re  not really sure how to prepare...



    We have this feeling that we need to focus on home and having a strong family as institutions seem to be falling apart around us, but at the same time we feel this call to do something about the problems we see from mental health problems to relationship issues to political turmoil...

    14. Cultivating a Love of Science and God by Keeping an Open Mind [with Vince Newmeyer]

    14. Cultivating a Love of Science and God by Keeping an Open Mind [with Vince Newmeyer]

    Staying curious and asking questions is what makes science interesting. Unfortunatelly, it has become too much about memorizing and recalling "facts." How do we cultivate a love of science when the "experts" are telling us what to think and what is true?



    Vince's Websites:

    Science Elevated  

    Science Freedom

    YouTube LDS Science Elevated 



    Here are a few of my favorite resources for learning about alternate theories, sparking curiousity, and opening our minds:

    Fascinating YouTube Series by a very well-educated scientist (highly recommend): Complete Creation

    Interesting Documentary: Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

    Books: Contested Bones, Thousands... not Billions, Universal Model

    4 steps to counter those problems at home so that our kids can reach their potential and be prepared for what is ahead in this unpredicate time.

Ultramarathon

This podcast could be described as the ultramarathon of parenting. It provides inspiration and a variety of perspectives for the parent looking to achieve something beyond 5k, 10k, or even marathon parenting. It encourages you to be more. For the parent looking for practical solutions to everyday problems, this may not be the best fit. But if you are looking for a guide to the next level of parenting this may be what you need. Just remember an ultramarathon is not for everyone and that is okay.
