Today’s show starts with a small hiccup and then really gets going with our guest and listener Rachel Green (but not that one ;)).  We discussed what we had for breakfast and it was everything from a frittata, to coconut milk yogurt with all the toppings, to a Diet Dr. Pepper with saltines. Can you guess who ate what?  Rachel admits to being sidetracked by ruminating over her busy calendar, and how Cynthia’s book is helping her, “get comfortable with being uncomfortable so she can bring others in”. We share what the Lord is teaching us lately including Kingdom success vs. the world’s success and how to prioritize relationships over tasks. All while Cynthia starts a new segment called, “How are we even friends?”.

If you need a reminder that God can redeem and restore a broken marriage, this week’s guest, Kathy Bush shares her powerful restoration testimony.  Kathy and Tim have been married for 42 years, many of those years filled with hurt, pain and infidelity. Their story centers around a primary marriage challenge —bringing two stories,  backgrounds, and expectations together. It took Kathy and Tim hitting rock bottom to begin a two-year process of counseling where they found a place of healing.  Kathy reminds us that God designed marriage before He designed the church and that it can be a powerful tool against the enemy if we can walk in step together. Today Kathy and Tim run War Room Ministries to serve men, marriages, families, and churches across the country and help families find healing.  Connect with Kathy Bush:  Website:  Home - War Room Ministries Instagram:  War Room Ministries (@warroomministry)  Links Mentioned:   Sex on The First Date by Tim and Kathy Bush The Bible Recap Family Life –Weekend to Remember Conferences Genesis Women's Shelter---resources if you are in an abusive relationship Related Episodes: Building Strong Marriages :: Kimberly Beam Holmes [Ep 374] Finding the Courage to Speak Up When You’re Not Ok :: Kristen Glass [Ep 427] Rebuilding from an Abusive Marriage :: Jeni B [Ep 246]  Infidelity, Divorce and Redeeming Love :: Rebekah Greer [Ep 8] Walking Through Divorce :: Lara Williams [Ep 324]  Sinners Married to Sinners–How God Refines Us :: Cheryl Scruggs and Jae Carpenter [Ep 195] Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors. 
Did you know panic attacks can happen even when everything around you looks “perfect”?  They can sneak up seemingly out of nowhere and be frightening. But a panic attack is a warning light to slow down and see what is happening in our bodies and emotions.  Panic is a behavioral and physical response to anxiety locked in our bodies. So many of us can feel alone and isolated even when surrounded by people.  My guest today, Kasey Van Norman, an author, counselor, and teacher, shares the neurological and physical science behind panic attacks and anxiety. She gives us insight into why they happen and reminds us that the key to living a life free of anxiety is a present relationship with Jesus. Kasey dives into Luke 10 where Mary and Martha show the pull between anxiety and peace.  She reminds us that sitting at the feet of Jesus is the way to peace and always available to us.   Connect with Kasey Van Norman:  Website:  Kasey Van Norman  Facebook: The Made Well House Instagram:  Kasey Van Norman, LPC | Therapy + Theology (@kaseyvannorman) Made Well House: The Made Well House Counseling and Wellness Links  Freedom Prayer Ministries People Fuel: Fill Your Tank for Life, Love, and Leadership by  John Townsend Ultimate Leadership Conferences Soul of Shame by Dr. Curt Thompson Don't Mom Alone: Growing the Relationships You Need to Be the Mom You Want to Be: by Heather MacFadyen  Related Episodes: Freedom from Anxiety :: Ashley Willis [Ep 180]  Getting Brave About Anxiety :: Sissy Goff [Ep 311] Panic Attacks and Growing Trust :: JJ Heller [Ep 238] Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors. 
Boys today are struggling more than ever with social anxiety.   They feel hesitant, anxious, and struggle to take healthy risks. How do we know when to push them into uncomfortable places? Many boys are even struggling with life milestones like getting their driver's license, asking a girl to the school dance, or applying to college. OCD and ADHD are on the rise and we want to understand when to step in and get them any help that is needed.   My guest David Thomas, a licensed professional counselor, is back to bring wisdom, advice, and tools to navigate life with our boys. He tells us the top three reasons why these issues are on the rise. David helps us learn how to support, challenge, and help boys be more outward moving and have more purpose. He reminds us that our sons are first a child of God and we can anchor them in that truth as we parent and guide them through life.  Connect with David Thomas:  Website:  Raising Boys and Girls (raisingboysandgirls.com) Facebook: Raising Boys and Girls | Facebook Instagram:  Raising Boys and Girls (@raisingboysandgirls) • Instagram photos and videos Links Mentioned:   Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life by Susan David  The Worry-Free Parent: Living in Confidence So Your Kids Can Too by Sissy Goff Feeding the Mouth That Bites You: A Complete Guide to Parenting Adolescents and Launching Them Into the World by Kenneth Wilgus  Legacy Changer by Kristen Hallinan Life 360 App  Your Enneagram Coach (a gospel-centered approach to the Enneagram)  Related Episodes: David Thomas Episodes Freeing Your Adolescents to Step Into Adulthood – Ages and Stages – Teens :: Dr. Ken Wilgus [Ep 382]  The Enneagram and Motherhood :: Suzanne Stabile [Ep 232]  Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors. 
Kids plus nutrition often equals a storm of thoughts and emotions. What should I serve my child? How do I get them to eat it? Is what I heard on the internet true? We don’t come to these questions with blank slates either. Words spoken to us or ideas we’ve internalized can make this area of life rife with trouble.  But my guest this week is mom and registered dietician Kacie Barnes and she is here to help! She’s got broad guidelines and specific tips to help us through snacks and mealtimes.  The one thing she made sure to say in our interview?  “Give yourself some credit because I know that you work really hard to feed your kids and it is not an easy job.” Connect with Kacie Barnes:  Website:  https://mamaknowsnutrition.com/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mamaknowsnutrition/  Instagram:  @mamaknowsnutrition  Links Mentioned:    Renzo’s Pick Eater Multivitamin with Iron  Find Simple Mills foods or Harvest Pea Snaps at your favorite grocer Related Episodes: Fed is Best || New Baby Series Pt 2 :: Dr. Bridget Young Healthy Habit Building :: Kat Lee [Ep 300]  Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors. 
Where do you turn when life gets messy?  Cynthia said it best, “98% of life is the messy part.” But that sentence doesn’t have to end there, with us shaking our fists at the sky. Instead, get Sidetracked with Cynthia and me as we dive right into life’s messy parts, clinging to the brilliant hope that God is still good to us, and for us.  Pre-order Cynthia’s new book, Life is Messy, God is Good and enter our contest to be on a future episode of Sidetracked!  Connect with Cynthia Yanof:  Website:  https://cynthiayanof.com/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cynthia.yanof  Instagram:  @cynthiayanof  Podcast: MESSmerized  Links Mentioned:    Life is Messy, God is Good: Sanity for the Chaos of Everyday Life by Cynthia Yanof Enter our Sidetracked Giveaway  Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors. 
How do you measure yourself? How do you decide if you’re succeeding or failing in life? One ruler we often reach for is comparison. Sometimes comparisons are helpful tools we can use to evaluate our processes or methods. But we’ve all seen comparisons go wrong. Who hasn’t thought, “I’m not like her. I must be less than”?  Comparison isolates. It causes us to withdraw from our community or to put up perfect-looking walls that keep people out.  My guest this week is recovering comparison-chaser, Jenn Schultz.  Her new book, She’s Not Your Enemy, shows us the root of the problem isn’t how we are different from one another, it’s that we don’t truly know who we are. Armed with the knowledge of who God made us to be, we are free to celebrate other women and build God’s kingdom together.  Connect with Jenn Schultz:  Website:  https://jennschultzauthor.com/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jennschultzauthor  Instagram:  @jennschultzauthor  Podcast: Called Into Being @calledintobeing    Links Mentioned:    She’s Not Your Enemy: Conquering Our Insecurities So We Can Build God’s Kingdom Together by Jenn Schultz Inner Healing Prayer :: Jennifer Barnett [Ep 323] Psalm 103 Romans 8 Ephesians 1 Related Episodes: Be Vulnerable, Find Your People :: Jennie Allen [Ep 354] Move From Comparison to Compassion :: Karen Ehman [SOM Wk 5] Sidetracked with Fall, Homecoming and Sibling Conflict :: Cynthia & Heather [Ep 432] Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors. 
Have you ever asked yourself, “Is what’s going on with my body normal?”  So often as women, we are quiet about what’s going on with our bodies.  Our concerns have been dismissed before. We’re worried about what will have to change in our lives to fix this nagging symptom. The doctor is busy.  We have to leave this appointment soon to make it on time to the next thing on our lists. So we just deal.  But my guest this week, Dr. Kamilia Smith, says that “quality of life issues should not be extra credit for women.” Our conversation covers a gamut of topics from menopause to sexual health to supplements.  Dr. Smith is the Founder and Director of Charleston House Gynecology in Dallas. Her practice is geared toward caring for all of a woman on the zig-zag road through midlife healthcare.  Connect with Dr. Kamilia Smith:  Website:  https://charlestonhousegyn.com/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/charlestonhousegyn  Instagram:  @charlestonhousegyn  Links Mentioned:    Estrogen Matters: Why Taking Hormones in Menopause Can Improve Women’s Well-Being and Lengthen Their Lives – Without Raising the Risk of Breast Cancer by Avrum Bluming and Carol Tavris  Dallas Pyschologist/Therapist: https://behavioralhealthdallas.com/dr-katie-sardone-psychologist-therapist Dallas Counseling: https://www.mend-counseling.com/ NY Times article on Menopause  Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors.

Happy New Year! We’re starting the year off right with mile-long to-do lists and a complex highlighting system so we don’t forget to wash the dog in the midst of crocheting that giant bow.  JK!   But we are thinking about what went well in 2023 and what we’re focusing in on 2024. Whether you make resolutions or not, evaluating how things are going is helpful and the flip of the calendar is a natural time to do just that. But because we’ve been victimized by the to-do list just as often as we’ve been helped by it, we brought in professional help. Laurel Denise, better known as Lolly, from Laurel Denise Planners joins us to talk about planning and to help us make sense of all those task-thoughts running around our brains.  Getting Sidetracked may be a little more productive than usual this month! (but still with plenty of laughs!)

How are you handling your mental load? Are you a well-packed Sherpa able to take on any terrain or Sisyphus rolling the ball up the hill only to watch it roll back down?  This is the time of year when it feels natural to look back and look forward. We can evaluate what worked and what didn’t, but more importantly we can listen to what space the Lord is asking us to occupy. Maybe things need to drop off our list. Maybe God isn’t saying “let go” but is tasking you with bringing order to your every day. My guest this week is mom and planner creator Laurel Denise. Laurel shares her journey thus far through motherhood and owning a small business and how she made sense of it all.  Connect with Laurel Denise:  Website:  https://laureldenise.com/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/laureldeniseloves  Instagram:  @laureldenise  TikTok: @_laureldenise Related Episodes: Sunday Planning :: Retha Nichole [Ep 349] Listening for God’s Leading :: Caroline Cobb [Ep 405] RWYB Week 4 Cultivate What Matters :: Lara Casey [Ep 146] Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors. 
Have you heard the Bible verse “Women will be saved through childbearing”? (It’s part of 1 Timothy 2:15) What do you think that verse means? What do you think it means for the woman facing infertility, or singleness?  My guest this week, Dr. Sandra Glahn, wants to dispel some iffy interpretations of this verse many of us grew up hearing. Dr. Glahn is Professor of Media Arts and Worship at Dallas Theological Seminary and has spent over 20 years trying to better understand what Paul meant in these verses in 1 Timothy, and what they mean for us today. Join me for this fascinating conversation that delves into the role of women and the cultural context of Paul’s letter, 1 Timothy.  Connect with Dr. Sandra Glahn:  Website:  https://sandraglahn.com/  Instagram:  @sandraglahnauthor  Links Mentioned:   Nobody’s Mother: Artemis of Ephesians in Antiquity and the New Testament by Sandra L.

Ready or not, the holidays are upon us! What are your favorite holiday traditions? What are the ones you could leave behind?  Get sidetracked with Cynthia and me as we discuss everything from trees (real, fake, and Jesse) to gift giving philosophies (more or less presents than Jesus?) to elves and shepherds and the awful name your pie might get if it doesn’t come out just right. There’s even help for the mom who just wants to help her kids see Jesus in the midst of all the holiday stuff!    Connect with Cynthia Yanof:  Website:  https://cynthiayanof.com/  Podcast: Messmerized Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cynthia.yanof  Instagram:  @cynthiayanof  Links Mentioned:   The Jesse Tree Heather’s  Mother-in-law’s Wassail Recipe→ combine in a pot: a gallon of apple cider (or juice) with 12 whole cloves, 4 tsp whole allspice, 12 sticks of cinnamon.

How are you doing?  Honestly. What is the pace of your day? What do you long for and feel you are missing out on? What activities have you crammed in your life out of a “should” mentality? When do you focus on your spiritual life? Today we are getting honest about our lives. And discussing ways to deepen relationships, simplify schedules, and connect spiritually. This week’s podcast guest is the talented, Shauna Niequist. Author of several books (“Cold Tangerines”, “Bread and Wine”, etc), she has a new devotional available called, “Savor: Living Abundantly Where You Are, As You Are”. If you are longing for friends you can share vulnerably with, Shauna offers a simple plan. If you struggle with the concept of slowing down and “savoring”, we discuss our own struggle and practical ways to start. If you want to expand your spiritual life beyond time alone with your Bible, then Shauna paints a beautiful picture of what that can look like. Shauna dishes out oodles of wise words. Enjoy!

What do you think of when you hear the phrase “college tuition”? Does your heart rate speed up?  Sending a child to college is the culmination of a lot of effort. It’s emotional and there are a lot of logistics to manage. In this hands-on, information-packed conversation Kristi and I cover the basics of applying for financial aid for college.

What are two words to describe your mind when your head hits the pillow most nights?  The quiet space before sleep can be our most vulnerable moments. Whether it’s to-do’s or dredging up memories from the past, our thoughts can feel overwhelming. If we let our mind spiral we’re sacrificing the rest God intends us to enjoy. But my guest this week, Emily Ley has some bedtime rituals that can help us stop the spiraling. Crafted to help herself with the nighttime barrage of thoughts, Emily’s simple routines and reminders can set you on a path to the peace that comes, not from an easy life, but from an abiding trust in God.  Emily is a mom of three, a best-selling author, and the founder of organizational products and tools company, Simplified.    Connect with Emily Ley:  Website:  https://emilyleybooks.com/   Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/simplified  Instagram:  @simplified  Links Mentioned:   The Simplified Planner Heather uses Raising Them Ready: Practical Ways to Prepare Your Kids for Life on Their Own by Jonathan and Erica Catherman   How to Be a Person Camp - Emily Ley on Substack  Near in the Night: 100 Evening Meditations on God’s Peace and Rest by Emily Ley Sure as the Sunrise: 100 Morning Meditations on God’s Mercy and Delight by Emily Ley  Growing Boldy: Dare to Build a Life You Love by Emily Ley A Simplified Life: Tactical Tools for Intentional Living by Emily Ley  Related Episodes: Fighting Toxic Thoughts :: Jennie Allen [Ep 272] Freedom From Anxiety :: Ashley Willis [Ep 180] Getting Brave About Anxiety :: Sissy Goff [Ep 311] Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors. 
Do the sights and sounds and feels of parenting overwhelm you some days? Or most days? How can we parent kindly and intentionally when we desperately need a break from all the stimulation?  My guest this week is Mary Van Geffen. She is a mom who has striven to cultivate good relationships with her children and husband while also navigating life as a Highly Sensitive Person with diagnosed ADHD.  She knows firsthand the struggles moms face with sensory overload and she’s not trying to “fix” you - you’re not broken!

Some moments create a “before” and “after” in life. Whether it’s a circumstance we live through or a person we encounter, we see the world and our lives differently after these experiences.  In choosing the most memorable moments to go back to, I thought about, “What were the conversations that changed my own life and parenting?”  Don’t forget, we are walking together down this path of motherhood! I’m sharing these conversations again because they have impacted my journey in encouraging, clarifying, and simplifying ways.  Full Episodes:  Anchoring Our Kids’ Lovability in Christ :: Jeannie Cunnion [Ep 91] Motherhood, Career, and Identity :: Kat Armstrong [Ep 171] When to Have the Talk :: Mary Flo Ridley [Encore] The Window of Tolerance :: Charissa Fry [Ep 260]  Gospel Parenting :: Paul David Tripp [Ep 176] Connect with:  Jeannie Cunnion  Website:  https://www.jeanniecunnion.com/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JeannieCunnion  Instagram:  @jeanniecunnion  Mary Flo Ridley  Website: https://birds-bees.com/  Podcast: The Birds and Bees  Instagram: @birds_bees  Kat Armstrong Website: https://www.katarmstrong.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/katarmstrongauthor  Instagram: @katarmstrong1  Charissa Fry Lopez Website: https://charissalopez.com/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CharissaFryCounseling/  Paul David Tripp  Website: https://www.paultripp.com/  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pdtripp Instagram: @PaulTrippQuotes  Links Mentioned:   Books by Jeannie Cunnion  Parenting the Wholehearted Child: Captivating Your Child’s Heart with God’s Extravagant Grace by Jeannie Cunnion  Mom Set Free: Find Relief from the Pressure to Get It All Right by Jeannie Cunnion Don’t Miss Out: Daring to Believe Life is Better with the Holy Spirit by Jeannie Cunnion  Never Alone: Parenting in the Power of the Holy Spirit by Jeannie Cunnion  Books by Kat Armstrong  The In-Between Place: Where Jesus Changes Your Story by Kat Armstrong No More Holding Back: Emboldening Women to Move Past Barriers, See Their Worth, and Serve God Everywhere by Kat Armstrong  The Storyline Project by Kat Armstrong   Resources from Charissa Fry Lopez  Regulation Pack  Keys to Playing with Your Kiddo  Resources by Mary Flo Ridley  God’s Very Good Design by Mary Flo Ridley Birds and Bees Courses  Resources by Paul David Tripp Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family  New Morning Mercies: A Daily Gospel Devotional  Marriage: 6 Gospel Commitments Every Couple Needs to Make  Complete List of Paul Tripp’s Resources  Related Episodes: In Light of Eternity :: Jen Clouse [Ep 100]  Quiet Your Inner Critic and Practice Self-Compassion :: Kim Fredrickson [Ep 188] Lessons Learned in 87 Years (Part 1) :: Vickie Kraft [Ep 73] Lessons Learned in 87 Years (Part 2) :: Vickie Kraft [Ep 74] Donut Dates with John Price [Ep 6] Jeannie Cunnion How to {really} Parent with Grace :: Jeannie Cunnion [Ep 55] Set Free From Shame :: Jeannie Cunnion [Ep 190] Parenting in the Power of the Holy Spirit :: Jeannie Cunnion  [Ep 347]  Kat Armstrong Women Can Be All in for Jesus :: Kat Armstrong [Ep 253]  Mary Flo Ridley  Birds and Bees?

Though I didn’t have a five-timers jacket to send them, the guests on today’s show have all been on DMA at least 5 times (some have been on double that amount!).  As we celebrate ten years of the podcast we wanted to acknowledge the voices I turn to again and again for support in parenting and life. Trustworthy and encouraging, their episodes are full of hope and help so we don’t mom alone (see what I did there? ;) ).  Connect with:  David Thomas and Sissy Goff Website: https://www.raisingboysandgirls.com/  Instagram:  @raisingboysandgirls Online Courses Sally Clarkson  Website: https://sallyclarkson.com/  Instagram: @sally.clarkson  Jim and Lynne Jackson Website: https://connectedfamilies.org/  Instagram: @connectedfams  Online Courses  Kirk Martin Website: https://celebratecalm.com/  Instagram: @celebratecalm  Podcast: Celebrate Calm Online Courses  Full Episodes Here:  Emotional Milestones :: Sissy Goff and David Thomas [Ep 160] Create a Home of Belonging & Becoming :: Sally Clarkson [Ep 107] Help Your Child Feel Safe and Loved :: Jim and Lynne Jackson [Ep 80] Calmly Parenting the Strong-Willed Child :: Kirk Martin [Ep 69] The Right to Change My Mind :: Bruce and Heather [Ep 196] Links Mentioned:   Books by David Thomas and Sissy Goff  Are My Kids on Track: 12 Emotional, Social and Spiritual Milestones Your Child Needs to Reach by Sissy Goff and David Thomas The Worry-Free Parent by Sissy Goff  Raising Emotionally Strong Boys by David Thomas Raising Worry-Free Girls by Sissy Goff Brave by Sissy Goff Braver Stronger Smarter by Sissy Goff Wild Things: The Art of Nurturing Boys by Stephen James and David Thomas Books by Sally Clarkson Different: the Story of an Outside-the-Box Kid and the Mom Who Loved Him Giving Your Words: The Lifegiving Power of a Verbal Home for Family Faith Formation  Help, I’m Drowning: Weather the Storms of Life with Grace and Hope  Mom Heart Moments: Daily Devotions for Lifegiving Motherhood  Girls Club: Cultivating Lasting Friendship in a Lonely World   The Lifegiving Parent: Giving Your Child a Life Worth Living for Christ The Lifegiving Table: Nurturing Faith Through Feasting One Meal at a Time Books by Jim & Lynne Jackson Discipline That Connects with Your Child’s Heart  How to Grow a Connected Family  Related Episodes: David Thomas and Sissy Goff  Helping Our Kids Foster Friendships :: David Thomas and Sissy Goff [Ep 338] Raising Girls :: Sissy Goff [Ep 141]  The Worry-Free Parent :: Sissy Goff [Ep 421] Getting Brave About Anxiety :: Sissy Goff [Ep 311] Raising Worry-Free Girls :: Sissy Goff [Bonus] Raising Emotionally Strong Boys :: David Thomas [Ep 368] A Lil Help with Boys and Screens :: David Thomas [Bonus] Understanding Boys Better :: David Thomas [Ep 315] The Art of Nuturing Boys :: David Thomas [Ep 119] Sally Clarkson That’s Me…Sleep Deprived and Needing Jesus :: Jennie and Sally [Ep 106] Create a Home of Belonging & Becoming :: Sally Clarkson [Ep 107] Cultivating Friendships in a World of Isolation :: Sally Clarkson [Ep 233] Weathering Life’s Storms :: Sally Clarkson [Ep 336] How to Own Your Life :: Sally Clarkson [Ep 54] Identifying Your God-Given Space (Part 2) :: Sally Clarkson [Ep 404] RWYB Wk 3 Jim and Lynne Jackson How to Connect, Coach and Correct Your Child :: Jim and Lynne Jackson [Ep 81] Connecting With Your Kids in Any Circumstance :: Jim and Lynne Jackson [Ep 98] Resolving Sibling Conflict :: Jim and Lynne Jackson [Ep 126] The Entitlement Fix :: Jim and Lynne Jackson [Ep 200] Discipline 101 (Live Event - Friday Night) :: Jim and Lynne Jackson [Ep 221] Connected Relationships (Live Event) :: Jim and Lynne Jackson [Ep 222] Helping Your Child With Sensory Processing Issues :: Lynne Jackson [Ep 258] Grace and Truth for Moms :: Lynne Jackson [Ep 296] Parenting Sensitive and Intense Kids :: Lynne Jackson and Lydia Rex [Ep 395] Kirk Martin How to Stop Yelling, Lecturing and Power Struggles :: Kirk Martin [Ep 62] Calmly Parenting the Strong-Willed Child :: Kirk Martin [Ep 69] Summer (and Sibling) Survival Guide :: Kirk Martin [Ep 77] How to Stay Calm with School Stress :: Kirk Martin [Ep 88] Q and A with Kirk Martin From Celebrate Calm :: Kirk Martin [Ep 104]  10 Ways to Stop Meltdowns and Arguments :: Kirk Martin [Ep 139]  The Legacy of a Calm Father :: Kirk Martin [Ep 210] Bruce How to Shine a Light as a Family :: Bruce MacFadyen [Ep 5] When Your Husband Has a Demanding Job :: Bruce and Heather [Ep 38] Goals, Roles, & Superpowers :: Bruce and Heather MacFadyen [Ep 112] This is Us :: Bruce and Heather [Ep 145] The Right to Change My Mind :: Bruce and Heather [Ep 196] 20th Anniversary Q and A Episode :: Bruce and Heather [Ep 242] Bruce Learns to Label His Feelings :: Bruce and Heather [Ep 316] Talking, Teens, and Twenty-Four Years :: Bruce and Heather [Ep 399] Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week’s sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors.

loved this particular episode. I have been really feeling like I've been missing hearing from the Lord. so this was timely. I was wondering if you had any resources or recommendations on studying about the Holy Spirit?

I cannot recommend this show enough. I've been listening to podcasts on parenting, faith and homemaking for more than 3 years now. This is simply the best and most authentic show out there. So many great guests with great advice and resources on ALL the topics that come up on your motherhood journey. It has been and still is a game changer for me and has so much inspiration and encouragement and tons of applicable,practical advice. Heather is just a fantastic host - very genuine and honest but never self centered. It's a real gem and I love how she always makes me go to Jesus.

there *aren't* innate differences. Girls and boys are just people. what many conservatives (especially complementarians) confuse for biology is socialization. Society teaches boys it's bad to show softness and teaches girls they're not allowed to not be soft (yet it is still shameful to be, just less so than boys). Rigid gender roles were not part of God's plan- we see in the curses of Adam and Eve that they were just the opposite.

I am already crying and it is only the intro...oh my goodness. this might mean I have a 5 day old newborn a 1 1/2 year old and a fresh 4 year old. and it might mean sleep has been rare the last 5 nights...

Hey Heather I'm not sure how to comment on your latest episode, but the book (affiliate!) links aren't actually linked! Can you change them into links so if we buy the book you get the credit? :)
