Let's be honest—parenting is rough. We’re overworked, overwhelmed, and kinda just over it. There are a million voices telling us what we should be doing differently, and it's pretty easy to feel like you're failing.
You're not. You were made and equipped by God to be an amazing parent. We believe that YOU CAN DO THIS, and we’re here to help.
Generous Is an Adjective, Not a Verb
We want our kids to be generous, kind, caring, and empathetic human beings. But we all know that those character traits don’t happen by accident, especially when we’re living in times of unprecedented uncertainty and fear. How do we teach our kids to be generous, even when they (or even we) might not have anything to give? If you've felt this, you're not alone. We believe that God has made you for moments just like this one, that YOU CAN DO THIS, and we're here to help. Today, we're talking about how to develop generosity in your kids.
Allll Byyyy Myyyseeelllllffff.....
Parenting is a lonely business. One minute you’re cool, you have friends, you’re going out on weekends to hip bars, and the next minute you’re covered in Cheerios, singing along to Paw Patrol and wondering how you ended up here. To make matters worse, for many of us right now we actually can’t go out and visit other people. (Thanks a lot, Covid.) In spite of this, we believe that God made you to be a great parent, and that YOU CAN DO THIS. So today, we’re going to talk about how to navigate parenting isolation in the midst of a pandemic.
Wine Counts for Self Care, Right?
So this is just life now, I guess. These four walls, these screaming people, this same routine every day until I go mad. We all know that it is important to take care of ourselves, but how exactly are we supposed to do that in a world where half of everything is closed and the other half is risky? If you're feeling any of this, you're not alone. We believe that YOU CAN DO THIS (even if you don't feel like it), and we're here to help.
Traditions That Don't Suck
The holidays bring with them all kinds of traditions—joyous, entertaining, tiring, or frustrating. Yet what we often miss about traditions (and this is true all year, not just at the holidays) is that they are an anchor. They keep us latched to a specific time and place, latched to the relationships that matter most, and latched to the stories of who we are and where we came from. No matter where you're coming from, we believe that God has made you to be an incredible parent. YOU CAN DO THIS, and we're here to help.
Talking About Race With Your Kids
We’re living through a time of unprecedented racial tension and discussion in our country right now. It's tough enough to navigate this as adults, but what about our kids—many of whom are hearing the hard truths about our history (and our present) for the first time? How do we help them navigate this volatile landscape? If you're feeling some of this struggle, you are not alone. We believe that God has equipped you for this journey—that YOU CAN DO THIS, and we're here to help.
There's a Pandemic at My Dinner Table!
This virus is scary, even for adults like us that have our stuff together. (Riiiiight.) But when it comes to our kids, this virus has decimated every aspect of the world as they know it—routines, relationships, vacations, and the list goes on. What’s worse, for many of them this is the first exposure they’ve had to illness, hardship, and the threat of death. So how do we go about helping them make sense of it? Today we’re going to talk about leading your kids through Covid with empathy, grace, and wisdom.

Pragmatic and Helpful
I don’t have as much time to listen to podcasts as I’d like, so I’m very choosy, looking for content that is helpful and practical. And when it comes to parenting, I’m even more picky. You Can Do This is digestible, pragmatic and delivers trustworthy advice.
Quick AND good
Consistently good content in a short format. No clicking through ads or any other fluff. They’re definitely making stuff with their audience (busy parents) in mind. I haven’t had to drive anywhere lately, but this would easily become something to listen to during the work commute. For now, I listen while on many (many) walks around the neighborhood.
Fun and helpful!
This podcast is funny, lighthearted and practical. I love real advice and action steps vs fluff, vague advice. They give real take away ideas and truths to apply to life. Highly recommended!
