Encouraging words for busy days, tough seasons, and women who do it all. With a perspective rooted in faith and rounded out with years of working high pressure jobs to amateur fighting and now motherhood, I aim to encourage women to make intentional choices to focus their lives around what matters most to them. I explore topics like hope, vulnerability, identity, and habit formation. I'm on this journey, too, and together, we can figure out how to feel at peace and unburdened.

    E19: Create peace in chaos with easy routines

    Life is hard! It’s chaotic and sometimes the ongoing chaos can cause us to feel unwell. Today’s podcast details my recent struggles as a pregnant mom and how I plan to create order where I can, while still accepting the things I cannot change. Though we can’t always change our emotions, we can change some things around us. We can bring order out of chaos, develop healthy routines and habits, and utilize rest and reflection to recenter ourselves. 


    In today’s episode:
    How to get your head above the weeds
    Routines are helpful habits
    Organize your day - block scheduling
    Don’t neglect to care for yourself
    Reflection and trusting in God

    The intersection of passions, gifts, and opportunities
    Be flexible with how you find opportunities
    Overcoming the things that stop you
    Don’t look for validation

    E17: Where is the passion in your life? Pt 1

    E17: Where is the passion in your life? Pt 1

    Have you ever been told to pursue your passions, no matter what? When we make passions our primary pursuit, we often end up chasing a fleeting thing. Before doing so, we need to make sure we are grounded in who we are, content with where we are, and know why we want to pursue our passions. Furthermore, we need to consider if we could become passionate about the opportunities in front of us - where we are already at - before we pursue the next best thing.

    In today's episode:

    Work shouldn't be your primary source of passion and fulfillment

    How does contentment relate to passion?

    Understand who you want to become first

    Discern your "why's"

    E16: Find comfort in the skin you're in

    E16: Find comfort in the skin you're in

    This is my 3rd pregnancy in 3 years so I know what it’s like to be heavier and struggle to dress my body. But I refuse to hide it and remain uncomfortable in it, despite how my weight has fluctuated. It’s common to feel uncomfortable in your own skin for various reasons and the solution is deeper than just “loving your body.” It takes a mindset shift toward treating yourself well, instilling healthy habits, choosing positive self-talk, and allowing yourself to dress in clothes that make you feel good. 


    In today’s episode:
    I’m pregnant again!
    Feeling uncomfortable in your own skin
    The solution isn’t loving your body
    Treat yourself well
    Instill healthy habits
    Positive self-talk
    Dress in clothes that fit

    E15: Don't let your phone rule your life

    Do you carry your phone with you everywhere? Phones can be helpful and necessary but many of us are addicted to them, treating them more like security blankets than the tools that they are.

    In today’s episode:
    Why phones are so disruptive
    Set boundaries with your phone
    Behavioral shifts to break the phone addiction
    How to balance necessary screen time with unnecessary screen time

    E14: What is an uncommon life?

    E14: What is an uncommon life?

    I realized that, after 13 episodes of this podcast, it might not be evident to everyone what I mean when I say “uncommon life.” Where did that term come from and what could it mean for you?

    In today’s episode:

    Understanding your “Whys”
    Finding your purpose
    Living a purpose-driven life
    Make your time reflect your priorities
    Don’t look for validation
    The only expectations that matter are your own

Encouraging and motivating!

Hannah does a wonderful job guiding her listeners through really big issues to unlock the potential to live a fuller (more uncommon!) life. Her soothing voice and encouraging mentality makes you feel empowered to make small changes in your habits and way of thinking that will have a big impact on your life. Short enough that you can enjoy as part of your morning routine and deep enough that you will feel motivated for the day, this podcast is a must-listen for all women wanting to improve their life & relationships as well as set attainable goals for themselves.
