I dreamt myself into a mother, but when I became her, I had to dream her back into a woman back into a woman back into a woman again.      -“Transfiguration” by Kate Baer Enrollment for the Self-Assured Motherhood Program (SAM) ends tonight (Friday, September 23) at midnight! Join us in the SAM program by going to selfassuredmotherhood.com !
ANNOUNCEMENT: If you've been listening to my show for the past couple of months, you know that I am in the middle of launching the second round of my nine-month program which is called Self-Assured Motherhood. This program only opens once a year, and I don't want any moms who need it to miss out on hearing about it and have to wait another entire year before they can sign up. Enrollment closes this Friday, September 23rd. I'm hopeful that today's episode will give you the push you need to sign up if you've been on the fence.  Go to selfassuredmotherhood.com to learn more and to sign up before Friday Sept 23 at midnight. If you are listening to this episode on the day it comes, I do have one more live masterclass I am teaching tomorrow, Tuesday, at 1:00 pm MST where I will walk you through a detailed self-assessment to see how you are doing in each one of these areas.  Sign up for the free class at 3in30podcast.com/freeclass.  *** The nine-month program is built around nine pillars of Self-Assured Motherhood (we study one per month), and today you are going to get a taste of each of those pillars through the stories of some of the alumni of my program. I did little mini-interviews with these women and asked them to share one personal experience from their life that illustrates how they are embodying one of the core principles of self-assured motherhood.  "For full show notes, including the three takeaways, go to https://3in30podcast.com/253-pillars-of-self-assured-motherhood *** Episode sponsors: BetterHelp: Use the code 3in30 to get 10% off your first month of online therapy!

Announcement: Today is THE day, my friends. For weeks, I have been mentioning that the Self-Assured Motherhood Program, or SAM as I like to call it, would be opening for enrollment soon, and I am excited to announce that doors for enrollment are OPEN now and will close again on Friday, September 23rd. This nine-month program only opens once per year, so if this has been tugging at your heart, please don't wait or talk yourself out of it.  The first step is to sign up to attend a free online class that I will be teaching several times live over the next two weeks. This isn't just a sales webinar…this is actually the first class of my nine-month curriculum, so you can get a taste of what the program is like, even if you aren't sure you can commit to the entire program. Just go to 3in30podcast.com/freeclass to sign up, and the first class is tonight if you are listening to this episode on the day it comes out, so don't wait. I will be offering the same class several more times, so whenever you are listening to this episode, go to 3in30podcast.com/freeclass to find out more. *** In honor of the Self-Assured Motherhood Program enrollment opening today, we are going to talk about one of the nine foundational topics that we explore in this program.  When I emailed the alumni of the program and asked which topic had had the most impact on them personally, so many of them mentioned this unit- Sanctify Your Soul-Care, and they shared with me super poignant and powerful stories of how they had applied this concept into their lives, so I actually invited three of those women to come on the podcast today to share those stories with all of you--because I think every mom could probably use some help in this area.  For full show notes, go to https://3in30podcast.com/252-Soul-Care Episode sponsors: BetterHelp: Use the code 3in30 to get 10% off your first month of online therapy!

Hello friends! This is a surprise mini-episode as part of a fun new series I am doing once a month where I introduce you to other wonderful podcasts that might bless and benefit your life.  These shows are all produced by or part of the podcast network that I am apart of, Cloud10 Media. It has been so rewarding for me to collaborate with other podcasters who are working hard to get their important messages out into the world.  Today I am excited to share a little bit about the show Minimal-ish. Minimal-ish is a podcast about striving to live with less of the things that don't matter, more of what does, and pursuing intention in every area of our everyday lives and motherhood. The host, Desirae talks about a realistic version of minimalism that isn't just about simplifying our stuff, but also the other areas of our lives like our calendars, routines, mindset, motherhood, work, finances, and everything in between.   Desirae is a mom to two girls (4 months and 4 years), a high school English teacher, and has been podcasting since 2018. Her passion is sharing what she is learning on the journey of living with less stuff and more intention, along with making space for others to share their stories as well.    For today’s mini episode, we are airing a clip about how oftentimes, clutter represents unmade decisions. Desirae poses some questions to ask yourself while decluttering any area of your home like: Is this item useful to me? Have I used this item in the past in the 1-2 months? Do I have plans to use this item in the near future? Do I have space for this item? Is it a gift? In this clip, you get an idea of Desirae’s thought process for making decisions that we have been putting off, and evaluating what’s really worth keeping.   I’m so glad to be sharing this excerpt from the Minimal-ish podcast. After you listen, be sure to head over to the Minimal-ish feed to listen to the entire episode, which I will link in the show notes so it's easy for you to find.  So with no further ado, here is a clip from Desirae of the Minimal-ish Podcast!  Click here to listen on Apple Or listen in any podcast app!
The concept of having boundaries with our kids can feel a bit foreign and possibly selfish, but it can actually be one of the most loving things you do for your parent-child relationship.

For full show notes, including the three takeaways, go to https://3in30podcast.com/251-boundaries-with-children Announcement: Stacey and I will be teaching some free live masterclasses together over the next several weeks to introduce the nine-pillars of Self-Assured Motherhood, so if you like what you hear today and want to learn more from us, go to 3in30podcast.com/freeclass to reserve your spot for our free masterclass, which is going to be so impactful.

This episode's guest is Dr. Jen Riday, a mom of 6 with a Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies.

I first encountered the work of Rachel Macy Stafford in 2015 when she was a guest on one of the very first podcasts I ever listened to. I was struck by her warmth, authenticity and her message of "letting go of distraction, perfection, & pressure to grasp what really matters" in our lives. Today, we will be talking all about soul-shifts: what they are and how we can start to make them in our own lives as mothers. I can't wait for you to hear my conversation with a mentor I have loved from afar for a lot of years.  For full show notes, including the three takeaways, go to https://3in30podcast.com/248-Rachel-Macy-Stafford Episode sponsors: BetterHelp: Use the code 3in30 to get 10% off your first month of online therapy!

The sign ups were only open for a short time, and I was thrilled to have almost 90 women join the program. These amazing mothers spent the last nine months working with me on becoming more confident and content mothers and women. We had nine different monthly topics with masterclasses and coaching and Q&A, and it was absolutely amazing. I wanted to let you know that we are gearing up to launch the Self-Assured Motherhood Program again in September. If this is something that piques your interest that you might be interested in joining this year, I've created an interest list where you can sign up to get more information and to be the first to hear when the program opens for enrollment.

When my kids were babies and toddlers, we had a rock-solid bedtime routine that my husband and I were completely in control of. We picked our babies up and went through our night-time routine before placing them in their cribs.  But now that my kids are older, they push back way more on bedtime, especially in the summer when it stays light outside so late. It's hard for me to know if I should monitor every step of their bedtime routine so I can keep them moving along or if I should give them more privacy and independence. With the new school year approaching, and needing to get back to a routine, I called in a sleep expert to interview on the podcast today. Becca Campbell is a certified pediatric sleep consultant and the CEO and founder of Little Z’s Sleep (www.littlezsleep.com) and The Sleep Sorority.  She has guided tens of thousands of families through the exhausting world of getting your child to sleep and is trusted by pediatric clinics and medical specialists across the country.  Becca is also the host of the #3 globally-ranked pediatric podcast, Little Z's Sleep Podcast, and her expertise has been featured in outlets like Parents magazine, NBC news, yahoo!Life, and Toddler Purgatory.  As a CEO, wife, and mother of two, she understands the importance of restful, restorative sleep, so she’s dedicated to helping families prioritize good sleep.

My son Noah is a creator. He spends hours every day building with LEGO, and if he ever finds a big empty box, it will surely become a fabulous creation within the day. I am obsessed with this boy's brain and his creativity, and I am so excited that today,to celebrate his 11th birthday, we get to hear from him on the podcast. When I asked him if was interested in being on the show, he responded without hesitation, "Of course I would! It would be an honor!" He is confident, funny, and a natural born leader, and I know you are going to get a kick out of his personality in this episode, as he teaches us how to encourage creativity in kids. I love him, and I can't wait for you to learn from him.  For full show notes, including the three takeaways, go to https://3in30podcast.com/246-encourage-creativity/ Announcement: I wanted to give you a sneak-peek of something I've been working on this summer behind-the-scenes. If you've been listening to the podcast for a while, you may remember that last fall, I launched a nine-month long program called Self-Assured Motherhood and I was thrilled to have almost 90 women join. These amazing mothers spent the last nine months working with me on becoming more confident and content mothers and women. We had nine different monthly topics with masterclasses and coaching and Q&A, and it was absolutely life-changing for them AND for me. One mother sent me an email that said this: Being part of this program has been incredibly eye opening and transformational! Every single time I have a class, I go back to my husband I tell him that I don’t regret a single penny that we have spent on SAM! This all so far has been worth it and then some! Not only am I being so blessed by all of this, but my family is too! Thank you! That first round of the Self-Assured Motherhood Program ended in July, and we are gearing up to launch it again in September.

This is a surprise mini-episode as part of a fun new series I am going to be doing once a month where I introduce you to other wonderful podcasts that might bless and benefit your life.  These shows are all produced by or part of the podcast network that I am apart of, Cloud10 Media. It has been so rewarding for me to collaborate with other podcasters who are working hard to get their important messages out into the world.  The show I am featuring today is a podcast that I love called Simple Families, which I have been listening to for several years. The host Denaye Barahona is a mother of two who also has a PhD in child psychology, so as she says in her podcast intro, "you're going to hear conversations that are based in research but more importantly real life."  Simple Families is a podcast for parents who are seeking a simpler, more intentional life, covering topics such as minimalism with kids, positive parenting, family wellness, and decreasing the mental load. For today's mini-episodes, I hand-picked an excerpt from Denaye's show to air for you so you could get a taste of her work, and it comes from a recent episode she aired titled "Raising Critical Thinkers" with guest Julie Bogart. There was a segment in that conversation that struck me to the core, all about how important it is to allow people in our families, including our own children, to have different beliefs from us and to know that they are still deeply loved, valued, and HOME when they are with us.  You are going to want to  listen to every word of this excerpt from the Simple Families podcast and then head on over to Denaye's feed to listen to the entire episode! **Listen to the full episode here, and subscribe to Simple Families here.  **Also check out Denaye's guest appearance on 3 in 30 here  and Rachel's guest appearance on Simple Families here!

Today marks 19 years since my mother died of breast cancer. I have dreaded this particular anniversary for a long time because I was 19 years old when my mom died, so starting tomorrow, every day that passes means that I've lived one day longer without her than I lived with her. As I get farther and farther away from her in days and years, I long to draw closer to her in other ways–to remember her, share her, and honor her. This episode is one way that I am doing that.  For full show notes, go to https://3in30podcast.com/243-19-years-without-my-mom. *** Related Episodes 080: Blessing our Children by Seeing their Gifts: A Musical Tribute to My Mama 186: Helping your Children Connect with Someone You've Loved and Lost // Dara Kurtz 086: 3 Easy Ways to Build Life-Long Bonds with Your Children: Tribute to my Dad

I LOVE this podcast. Helpful, easy to apply, fun. Theres such a variety of topics, even the ones that I don't think I'll he interested in are helpful. And I like the 30 minutes because that's just enough time for a basic household chore or walk, and I can usually (not always) get through it before there's a big enough problem with my kids I have to stop it.

These sound like ideas that might work well for ONE specific couple. I don't think these ideas generalize to all personality types.

Love these ideas. The only thing i would say is, instead of the mom doing all the night before prep, have the KIDS do the night time prep. They can fill their own water bottles and pack their own lunches (mostly), etc.! Let kids help take responsibility for making the morning better. It's not just mom's job.

I recently went through a change in my life that made me focus on who I wanted to be as a person. This podcast has helped me so much! Often the topics are something I wouldn't think are relevant to me or wouldn't be something I'd usually choose to listen to, but they are the ones I find myself enjoying the most. Rachel seems so genuine and tries to make each episode relatable and way to implement. I've been playing catch up with the episodes as I've only recently stumbled across it and I'm dreading having to wait a week for every episode!! Great concept, great execution.
