Episode Date
EP240: Get Organized to Live on Purpose with Jennifer Ford Berry
1841

Marketing and advertising companies get paid big money getting people to believe that they need more stuff. And consumers are told that buying new products will make them happier or skinnier or appear more successful. But the truth is that every single item we bring into our home requires some amount of space, time, energy, or money. Joining me today to discuss this topic is best-selling author, Jennifer Ford Berry.

EP234: Raising Children to Become Critical Thinkers with Julie Bogart
2204

Education is not solely about acquiring information and skills across subject areas, but also about understanding how and why we believe what we do. At a time where our online capabilities allow us infinite information and opinions, you can understand how parents (and teachers) worry about how students will interpret what they read and see. But how do we encourage them to examine different perspectives? How do we teach them the skills they need to become discerning adults? Joining me today is author, Julie Bogart who draws from more than 20 years of homeschooling experience and creating curricula. In this conversation, Julie offers insight and practical tips to help children at every stage of development to grow in their ability to explore the world around them.

[REPLAY] EP191: Reassessing Your School Year Routines
1507

Order (or Review) Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity

There are two times each year that always encourage me to re-evaluate my routine. The first is at the beginning of a new year and the second is the beginning of a new school year. The back-to-school season (or any change in seasons, for that matter) is a great time to re-evaluate our daily and weekly routines to make sure they’re serving us. Most of our children are back in school (and likely have been for several weeks), so now is the perfect time to reassess what is working and what isn't. Joining me for the conversation today is the queen of routines, Ashley Brown (of Routine & Things). She and I talk through tips that have benefited our personal schedules and other strategies that might be of benefit to you!

EP233: Free-Range Children (The Benefits of Children Outside Without You!) with Allana Robinson
2137

We’ve heard all about the need to get our 1000 Hours Outside (thanks to friend of the podcast, Ginny Yurich) but what about getting our kids outdoors WITHOUT us? Joining me today is parenting coach, Allana Robinson. Allana believes a helpful developmental tool can be the role of outdoor play (and why it needs to be done (from time-to-time) without parents!) Her coaching encourages parents to ditch the overwhelm (and confusion) so they can actually focus on things that matter (which is right up my alley!)

Bonus Episode: How Parents Can Lay the Foundation for Literacy Success with Maya Smart
1730

Did you know that babies less than a day old can parse out different vowel sounds? Or that language learning starts early while a baby is in utero, by about 35 weeks’ gestation, and the formation of synapses involved in language learning peaks during the first 6 months after birth? Me neither, until I read Maya Smart’s READING FOR OUR LIVES: A Literacy Action Plan from Birth to Six, a step-by-step guide for building literacy in a child’s early years. Maya is here today to discuss key strategies that parents should employ early (and often), conventional reading tools and instruction focuses on teachers and the school years, essential lessons parents can – and should – give their children, and more…

For those that are new around here, I release bonus episodes with unique topics that may not interest my wider audience so if this topic doesn’t fit what you’re looking for, join me back here next Tuesday for a conversation about the importance of outdoor play (sans parents!) that you don’t want to miss!

Join me today for a conversation with world-renowned expert on performance, well-being, and sustainable success, Steve Magness. I recently heard Steve on an episode of the Rich Roll podcast and thoroughly enjoyed the conversation regarding mental toughness. As a mom to three young children, I recognized the correlation to mental toughness needed in parenthood. Having coached Olympic athletes and other top-performers, I knew Steve would be a great guest to discuss resilience but specifically, how we can train our brains to transcend the discomfort we will surely encounter in our parenting journeys.

EP230: Simple Ways to Encourage More Play in Your Family with Anna Yudina
1616

As most of you know, a huge issue parents currently face is a sharp increase in screen time for children. In fact, a recent study by JAMA Pediatrics found that children’s recreational use of screens (not including time spent online for virtual classes) nearly doubled during the pandemic. Moreover, the study linked higher screen usage to poorer mental health and greater stress among teens. I, myself, acknowledge that screens themselves aren’t bad but strive to balance screen time with playtime. Joining me today to highlight the importance of screen free play and what parents can do to engage their children is Anna Yudina of the Genius of Play (whose mission is to provide families with the information and inspiration they need to make play an important part of their child’s day). Anna shares how play benefits parents, what play really means (how science defines play), importance of multi-generational play and more…

EP229: Addressing Digital Mistakes (& Other First Phone Tips) with Catherine Pearlman
1328

Joining me today is author, Catherine Pearlman for a conversation about first phones and digital safety. In her new book, First Phone, Catherine Pearlman—licensed clinical social worker and parenting expert—introduces 8 to 12-year olds (and their parents) to the concepts of digital safety, privacy, social media, cyberbullying, phone etiquette and how to set appropriate boundaries to establish a healthy digital relationship in an increasingly complicated online world. I hope this conversation gives parents peace of mind, tools to engage with their children and encouragement for their children as they internalize digital safety.

Bonus Episode: How Understanding Our Monthly Cycle Can Influence a More Intentional Life with Megan Rempel
1499

By tracking our unique monthly cycle, we can sync our activities for maximum effectiveness in every area of our life, including decluttering and living a more minimalist lifestyle. Decluttering can be emotional and physically demanding, and cycle syncing can ensure you are doing the right tasks at the right time to make the process easier and more enjoyable. Join me today for an in-depth discussion about this topic with registered nurse, Megan Rempel. Megan discusses how, as women, we have been gifted something pretty incredible with our monthly cycle. Our physiology, energy, focus, and emotional state are all impacted as we go through the 4 phases of our cycle every single month.

For those that are new around here, I release bonus episodes with unique topics that may not interest my wider audience so if this topic doesn’t fit what you’re looking for, join me back here next Tuesday for a conversation about hoarding that you don’t want to miss!

EP209: Unclutter Your Soul with Trina McNeilly
1919

For a lot of us listening, we’ve gotten really good at decluttering our homes - but what about our inner homes? I mean, what about the weight of something you may be carrying around with you (mentally, emotionally, or spiritually) that gets in the way? Join me today as I speak with author, Trina McNeilly about how we can observe, own and, ultimately, overcome what is overwhelming us. This episode is in no way a prescription that will solve all of your problems but I hope it’s a stepping point of encouragement as you begin to think through some of the clutter you may be carrying with you.

EP207: Swedish Death Cleaning: Morbid or Mandatory? with Emily McDermott
1762

Swedish Death Cleaning, or döstädning, is removing unnecessary items and preparing your home so that your loved ones aren’t burdened by them after you pass away. While the book that made it famous in 2017, The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning by Margareta Magnusson, focuses mostly on people who are in their sixties or “when the time is coming closer for you to leave the planet”, there is no reason why we can’t start today as younger moms who don’t want to burden our spouse/partners and loved ones. One question: If you were to die tomorrow, what would your loved ones have to do? Here to walk us through the practicals of this question is writer and fellow minimalist, Emily McDermott. Emily will answer questions such as: Who is death cleaning for? How long is this process? Should we tell our families? What are the lessons we can learn from this culture? And more…

EP204: The Power of Fun with Catherine Price
2004

We’ll be chatting all about the ‘power of fun’ on today’s episode! In our always-on, productivity-addicted lifestyles, we tend to think of the pursuit of fun as being indulgent or childish. We claim not to have time for it even as we spend hours a day engaging in what journalist and screen/life balance expert Catherine Price calls “Fake Fun”—binging Netflix, scrolling through Twitter, or indulging our FOMO on Instagram, all in hopes of filling some of the emptiness we feel inside. Through years of research, Price has learned the truth: far from being frivolous or a distraction, fun—or, as she calls it, True Fun—is actually the secret to achieving our goals.

EP199: Messy Minimalism: Realistic Strategies for the Rest of Us with Rachelle Crawford
1813

Think minimalism means a perfectly curated, always tidy home? Think again. Drowning in tides of toys, overflowing closets, and a crazy schedule, Rachelle Crawford assumed you had to be naturally organized to keep a tidy living space. Then she found minimalism: the messy, real-life kind, that is less about perfection and more about purpose. Becoming a messy minimalist is not about turning into someone else; it's about clearing away clutter and expectations to unearth who you really are. Join me today as I speak with Rachelle about her journey into 'messy minimalism' and how we can inspire those around us to begin their own step into minimalism (whether big or small!)

People are excited to show their love by giving gifts (especially during the holiday season) but what happens when you receive something that you didn’t ask for or want? Knowing how to accept graciously is a skill that we all should hone; it should be your goal to make sure to respond in such a way that the gift giver knows you genuinely appreciate the gesture- even if the sweater is itchy or the perfume isn’t your signature scent. Join me today as I talk with Becka Butler regarding tips on how exactly to navigate these (sometimes) awkward moments.

EP198: Initiating Stronger Relationships with Our Children with Vanessa Quigley
1887

My guess is if you surveyed any mom, she’d likely tell you she desires more intentional time with her child(ren). Whether she’s a working mom or stay-at-home mom, our days fill up fast. Not to mention, as our family grows or, inevitably, as our children grow older, it can be tricky to find the time to intentionally pursue them. Tricky but not impossible. Here today to offer wisdom from her own experience as the mother to seven children is founder of Chatbooks, Vanessa Quigley. She talks about what she’s done to initiate stronger relationships with each of them and how we can apply some of these methods in our own lives.

EP197: Habits of the Household with Justin Whitley Earley
2145

Looking for a different take on parenting hacks? I'm thrilled to introduce you to Justin Whitmel Earley, a father of four teaching parents how to create structure from mealtime to bedtime through creating purposeful habits. You long for tender moments with your children--but do you ever find yourself too busy to stop, make eye contact, and say something you really mean? Daily habits are powerful ways to shape the heart--but do you find yourself giving in to screen time just to get through the day? You want to parent with purpose--but do you know how to start? His new book, Habits of the Household releases today and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to speak with him about reestablishing rituals, the connection between our children and our habits, and more.

Need a Simple, Holiday Gift Idea? Order Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity

On today’s bonus episode, Becca Campbell, sleep consultant and CEO of Little Z's Sleep, brings her personal experience and education to the table to answer the question of parents everywhere, "How can I establish a bedtime routine for my child…and actually stick with it?" Becca answers questions such as how do we minimize battles? How do we stick with it? Helpful do’s and don’ts and more. This conversation was personally quite helpful to me and I wish I would’ve spoken with her when I first started having children.

EP196: Becoming Intentional with Money Management with Erin Skye Kelly
1937

I usually don’t share guest quotes prior to the interview but my guest today, author, Erin Skye Kelly said something that really stuck with me, “Debt Is Clutter.” Debt is clutter and it leads to a lack of freedom. It was this lesson that I had to learn before I began to pursue the purging of material things. Intentionality with my finances came first and the clutter followed. This episode won’t suddenly eradicate your debt but I hope it provides you with tools and inspiration to see that debt freedom is attainable through discipline, but first and foremost, intentionality!

EP195: Feeling Confident in Your Capsule Wardrobe with Kim Hancher
1634

On today’s episode, I speak with style coach, Kim Hancher. Kim teaches women how to create their unique style, dress their body type, and curate a capsule wardrobe so that they feel confident doing something you have to do every day, get dressed. In this episode, she discusses how to consciously curate a capsule wardrobe and (beyond that) how to wear more of the clothes you already have in your closet right now by incorporating her tried and true style concepts. Before we get into the conversation, I’ll leave you with this quote from fashion and beauty writer, Rae Ritchie, she says, “It’s a misconception to think that minimalism and fashion are incompatible. It’s still possible to remain up to date with major trends and have a small capsule wardrobe. You just have to be judicious in your choices. Treat how you dress as a fun creative hobby, a chance to play. With a foundation of versatile basics, you can easily drop in a few items that catch your eye.” I’d have to agree.

EP194: Toy Rotation Made Simple with Melissa Corriveau
1255

If you’re a regular listener, you’ll have heard me talk about decision fatigue or overwhelm. Children can become overwhelmed when given too many choices, including having many toys available at one time. By rotating toys, you keep the selection new and fresh; every time you rotate the toys, it’s like your children have brand new toys to explore. Here today to discuss the topic with me is professional organizer, Melissa Corriveau.

There are two times each year that always encourage me to re-evaluate my routine. The first is at the beginning of a new year and the second is the beginning of a new school year. The back-to-school season (or any change in seasons, for that matter) is a great time to re-evaluate our daily and weekly routines to make sure they’re serving us. Most of our children are back in school (and likely have been for several weeks), so now is the perfect time to reassess what is working and what isn't. Joining me for the conversation today is the queen of routines, Ashley Brown (of Routine & Things). She and I talk through tips that have benefited our personal schedules and other strategies that might be of benefit to you!

EP190: Outsourcing: Fewer Responsibilities, More Meaning with Rachel Luther
1808

Order (or Review) Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity

As minimalists, our lifestyles are characterized by the pursuit of simplicity and freedom from possessions and consumerism. That said, sometimes we find ourselves weighed down and dealing with tasks or responsibilities that we can’t manage. Sadly, there are only twenty-four hours in the day, so the question becomes: how can we pursue freedom without feeling buried along the way? The answer may be outsourcing! But how exactly do we outsource as minimalists and what about costs (or the fact that I tend to be a bit of a control freak!) Answering these questions (and more) is entrepreneur, Rachel Luther. Rachel has spent the last 10+ years learning what it means to minimize her tasks and responsibilities so each "yes" has the greatest impact, whether it’s for her family, in her business, or as an actor. She was a virtual assistant before people knew what the term meant, and she has learned that outsourcing - in business or at home – isn’t merely hiring a VA. It requires creativity as you prioritize your passions and free your brain of the mental clutter and responsibilities taking time away from your true skills and passions. I can’t wait for you to hear this one!

If you want to cook more at home, but don’t want to spend all night doing it, this is the episode for you! Join me today as I speak with author, Jenna Helwig. We’ll discuss how to simplify dinnertime so you can spend less time in the kitchen while still enjoying delicious meals. As I was flipping through Jenna’s new cookbook, the chapter titles resonated with me: Bare Minimum Time (30 minutes or less); Bare Minimum Ingredients (7 ingredients or less, including salt and olive oil); Bare Minimum Hands-On Time (slow-cooker and Instant Pot meals); Bare Minimum Clean-Up (one-pot/sheet pan/skillet meals); and Bare Minimum Sides (super-simple vegetables, salads, and grains so you can feel good about serving healthy, well-rounded dinners). Jenna’s advice for cooking is actually to do less: to pare back, to embrace some store-bought shortcuts, to eliminate fuss, and, in the process, extra dirty dishes.

In this day and age, it can be difficult to truly feel present in motherhood. We have so many roles we’re juggling, schedules to manage, self-care to maintain (not to mention remembering little details - such as what to add to the grocery store list or that school pickup is early on Friday.) The question is: how do we manage presence when it feels like we’re pulled in various ways? Joining me today to talk through this topic is author, Sarah Bragg. Sarah wrote about this topic (and more) in her recent book, A Mother’s Guide to Raising Herself. Today we’ll be discussing how to cultivate presence: how can we challenge ourselves to be more present in the moment without needing to document everything on Instagram/social media? How we can be more present as mothers, wives and friends? And how we can teach our children to cultivate presence in their own lives?

If most of us were honest, I’m sure we’d all admit to impulse shopping from time to time. From a basic perspective, we may assume it’s only a financial problem; however, it’s both a personal and psychological issue, too. The question is: how do we stop the impulse before it happens? Joining me today to answer this question (and more) is founder of the Inspired Budget, Allison Baggerly. She defines impulses spending and addresses the reasons we tend to impulse spend (and (steps for how to stop), plus more that you don’t want to miss!

EP184: 1000 Hours Outside with Ginny Yurich
1976

Order (or Review) Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity

----

Did you know the average American child spends a mere four to seven minutes outside each day. On the flip side, the average American child spends four hours a day on screens. While some of this screen time may serve an educational purpose, there's no way that most kids need that much of it. As parents, it' can be tough to swap screen time for outdoor time but the benefit(s) are so worth the challenge. Here to encourage us in this area is creator of the movement, 1000 Hours Outside (which urges parents to get their children outside for one thousand hours each year), Ginny Yurich. In our conversation she offers practical wisdom and inspiration to help you make outside time a priority in your day-to-day.

In today’s bonus episode with Tara Clark (@modernmomprobs), we discuss intentionality and mental health - specifically when it comes to social media. Modern technology is not going to change (if anything, it’ll only capture more areas of our lives.) It’s up to us to MODIFY our behavior. While social media can provide an escape, connect us to friends across the globe and become a useful resource for income, it can quickly become an addiction that takes us away from our priorities, and most importantly, our children. It’s something most of us realize but have a hard time actively combating. What do you do to set boundaries and protect mental health in this area?

Any family with children will experience their fair share of toys throughout the years. It’s inevitable that some will slip in that have a short longevity; however, being intentional in this area isn’t as hard as it seems and simple strategies can help foster diverse play experiences for children without filing our playroom with junk. Join me today as I talk with founder of Tiny Earth Toys, Rachel Classi. She’ll discuss scientific studies that discuss the benefits of minimal toys in the playroom, how the choices we make about what toys to buy impact our child's play and the environment, what we know about how the toy industry is playing a role in the plastic crisis and tips for parents about how to take the power struggle out of gifting to align with your family values.

Are you a member of Costco or Sam’s Club? Wholesale retail stores such as this are able to sell their products for much cheaper than local businesses; however, the question I pose to you and my guest today, Carly Adams, is: is bulk shopping anti-minimalist? There is a certain affordability when it comes to big chains; however, big-box retail stores also promote consumerism due to the sheer volume of products for sale. As we work through this topic, I’m sure you’ll build your own pros and cons list to see whether it’s the right choice for your family.

EP172: "Things I No Longer Buy" with Bridget Utschig
1994

Order Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity

----

After years of living a minimalist lifestyle, I’ve noticed that there are certain items I never (or rarely) buy anymore. Some of these you simply can say ‘no’ to while others take a bit more intentionality. My guest today, Bridget Utschig joins me to share her list of twenty items she no longer buys as a minimalist. A lot of her list is curated towards clean living; however, the vast majority of these items are simple shifts you could make that benefit in more ways than one. Also, I wanted to note that some of the items Bridget mentions may require an initial investment; however, moving forward, you’ll no longer need to buy them (at least not as regularly)!

For those of you unfamiliar with Liz, she is the author of, Meet the Frugalwoods, the intriguing story of how she and her husband realized that the mainstream path wasn’t for them, crafted a lifestyle of sustainable frugality, and reached financial independence at age thirty-two.

Today we’ll discuss the motivation to leave the city to pursue homesteading, sacrifices she made to live differently, her best tips to live frugally and more!

Today I’ll be discussing frugal living hacks with co-host of the Frugal Friends Podcast, Jen Smith. While you don’t have to be a minimalist to be frugal or vice versa, I’d argue that frugality and minimalism are like cousins and oftentimes influence one another. Today's conversation focuses on simple methods for earning extra income, building up savings and a few tips on simple investments.

EP166: Involving Kids in the Organizing Process with Elise Hay

Order Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity

--------------------------

Professional organizer, Elise Hay joins me for today’s conversation all about involving kids in the organizing process. While there may be some benefit to organizing without your children, the negative of tackling this task solo is that your child misses out on the growth experience. There is a feeling of reward associated with accomplishment and, it’s my belief that our children should partake in some of that with us. Handling the decluttering for them isn’t necessarily doing them a favor, on the flip side, it may actually do a disservice to you both. By involving your children in the organizing process, you’re enabling them to be more mindful of the items they own.

One of the most stressful things about the morning routine can be getting your children dressed. Whether there are too many clothes or your child has lots of opinions, it can be tough! But it doesn't have to be! I spoke with minimalist, Rachelle Crawford about how to minimize your child's wardrobe. Getting ready in the morning will get easier and more streamlined, as you won't have to wade through worn out, too small or stained clothing for them to find something to wear.

-----------------------------

Have you heard of the line, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes”? In a more straightforward manner it means: go outside. I love and agree with this notion as I try to get myself outside even when temperatures dip under freezing or quickly make me break a sweat due to humidity (which I prefer less than cold). Anyways, a couple of years ago, I stumbled upon the book, There’s No Such Thing as Bad Weather: A Scandinavian Mom’s Secrets for Raising Healthy, Resilient, and Confident Kids. It changed my perspective when it came to getting my kids outside. I felt freer, and more accepting of dirt and mud. All of that to say, it’s quite cold in Ohio right now and I was thinking about how important it still is for children to get outside (even for just 15 minutes here and there) so I reached out to author, Linda McGurk to see if she’d join me to share about how we can encourage our children outside each day, the differences in American and Scandinavian parenting, how to manage weather extremes and much more...

EP157: To Upgrade or Not to Upgrade with Carleen Armstead
1827

Pre-Order Your Copy of Minimalist Moms: Living & Parenting with Simplicity

-----------------------------

As a society, we're obsessed with upgrading. Whether it's the latest smart phone, a new car, furniture, or home. We must 'keep up with the Jones' (and also, we just really like new and shiny things). As someone pursuing a minimalist lifestyle, it can be tough to hold back. That's why I asked fellow minimalist, Carleen Armstead (and special guest appearance from her husband) to discuss this very thing.

EP139: Solo Systems for an Only Child Mama with Catherine Williams
2245

Join me today as I speak with creator of The Minimal Colonial, Catherine Williams. Catherine is the mother of a three year old boy and military spouse to an Air Force pilot. Catherine believes it's important to create a home where your soul finds peace, and that begins with decluttering your heart in order to declutter your home. Today, Catherine will share her experience with minimalism and parenting an only child. Is it really that different? I wasn't sure so I thought she would be a great person to dialogue with regarding this topic. We also talked a lot about solo parenting (as she has experienced a lot of time alone while her husband has been deployed) and how to navigate overwhelm and apply minimalist principles to your day-to-day.

EP128: Navigating Screen-Time Overload [+ My Go-To Ways to Avoid Screens] with Autumn McKay
1685

Quick note: I recorded this episode back in February 2020. I have a noticeable cold that I remark on in the beginning of my conversation. A lot of my episodes are recorded months before they drop so I apologize for any confusion or mentions of it being winter at the release date (July 2020.)

----

This week, I bring you my conversation with author, Autumn McKay. In 2016, Autumn created her blog, Best Mom Ideas where she began to share tips and tricks she learned throughout her own motherhood journey. The creation of this blog turned into the creation of her books, The Ultimate Toddler Activity Guide and The Ultimate Kindergarten Prep Guide. Today we’ll discuss the benefits of screen-free activities, ways to encourage independent play and how to minimize screen time in the day-to-day.


I've also included ten of my go-to ways to avoid screens! It can be tough in extreme temperatures to know how to balance screen time with playtime so my hope is to give you a couple of suggestions you hadn't yet considered!

I bring you some personal thoughts on this subject, as well as dive into a discussion with Marie Kondo consultant, Sarit Sela. I wanted to give you the opportunity to make the decision for yourself after listening to two sides of the method!

EP126: Adventuring Together: How to Create Spontaneity with Kids with Greta Eskridge
2247

Today I bring you my conversation with author, Greta Eskridge. Greta Eskridge is a second-generation homeschooling mom of four. Her message of deeply connected and intentional parenting began as a blog in her early days of mothering, but quickly blossomed into a writing and speaking career. Now, Greta helps parents and kids create connection in a disconnected world on her website, at the popular Wild and Free homeschool conferences, and at speaking engagements around the country. Today we'll be discussing the subject of her new book, adventuring with kids.

In recent years, children are growing up in a world that looks little like the one their parents experienced during childhood. The Internet at their fingertips, cameras on phones that fit in their pockets, schedules jam-packed with extracurriculars. Parents find themselves competing for their children’s attention, at a loss for meaningful ways to cut through the noise and connect. Greta will answer questions such as: how do I get my unadventurous child to feel comfortable stepping out of his/her comfort zone, adventures that are do-able with little children, free adventures to have with our children and more.

EP125: Ask Questions, Have Discussions [Intentional Media Consumption] with Rita Rogers
1680

Today, I bring you my conversation with Rita Rogers. Rita is an is an ICU nurse, farm wife, mom to two little girls and blogger at Rita Rogers Co. where she advocates for living well on purpose. Rita takes on cultural norms such as health culture and thought processes that may not be serving us well by getting us to ask questions and apply common sense solutions.

In this conversation, we have an open dialogue on intentional media consumption and what that looks like in our day-to-day. We're not experts, just two minimalist mamas looking to navigate the plethora of information coming our way. I need to have ways to insulate my mind from the negativity of the world so that I can fulfill my daily parenting duties. That said, the 'noise' of the news media is something that's hard to tune out so instead of completely doing so, I just have to get better at navigating.

This week, I talk to founder of Yumble Meal Delivery Service, Joanna Parker. After a venting session with friends, Joanna had the realization that she and her friends had one thing in common: they all desired to put real food on the table but couldn’t always find the time. After a busy day, parents desire to connect with their families, not spend time rushing around shopping for groceries and all of the mess that comes with cooking and cleanup. Joanna’s goal has always been to ‘lighten the load for parents so they have more quality time with their families. Today, Joanna will be speaking to the simplification of mealtimes with littles. She'll encourage us to see that healthy doesn’t have to equate to a struggle (even for the pickiest of eaters!)  

We Discuss:

  • The creation of her company, Yumble Kids!
  • Best tips to conquer ‘mom guilt’ when we aren’t regularly providing that Instagram-perfect meal.
  • Dealing with picky eaters.
  • Striking a balance between nutrition while not becoming overwhelmed with ‘organic’/’clean’/non-processed food for every meal.

(Thank you so much for taking the time to fill this out!)

---------------------------

This week, I bring you my interview with Laurie Palau from Simply B Organized. Laurie Palau is also the author of the book Hot Mess: A Practical Guide To Getting Organized, speaker, and host of the weekly podcast, This Organized Life. Laurie will give us some insight as to how she has created this community but we’ll specifically be discussing organization with children. We may have the highest hopes for getting our homes organized but then we must deal with the clutter that derives from our kiddos. How do we encourage our kids without coming across as a nag? How do we set boundaries as our kids age? How do we implement new rules with our older, high school aged children? Laurie will answer all of these questions and more in our interview today!

We Discuss:

  • When to begin to implement organizational strategies for our children.
  • How to remain motivating rather than nagging our children.
  • Best strategies for encouraging:
    • Adolescent children
    • Middle school children
    • High school children
  • Implementing new 'rules' for teenagers that are already established in 'their ways'
  • Setting appropriate boundaries that encourage independence but still allow adult control.

EP84: How Our Words Shape Our Days with Stefanie Gass
2246

Link to listener survey: https://survey.libsyn.com/minimalistmomspodcast

(Thank you so much for taking the time to fill this out!)

---------------------------

This week, I bring you my conversation with the voice behind the Mompreneur Mastermind Show, Stefanie Gass. Her mission is to encourage female entrepreneurs, guiding them in their understanding of worthiness, success AND balance! Stefanie and I had a wonderful discussion on the power of our words and the 'ripple' effects they have on various facets of our lives. Our internal thoughts permeate our lives in so many ways and I think we had some great dialogue on how to challenge the habits we've constructed that rarely (if ever) serve us.

We discuss:

  • The creation of the. Mompreneur Mastermind Show.
  • At a very basic level, do women/moms tend to spend more in negative self talk than our spouses?
  • Why do the words we say to ourselves matter?
  • Some might think, "I'm only saying these words to myself...it won't affect anyone else?" Thoughts regarding this perspective...
  • Practical ways to move out of a negative mindset.

EP83: Releasing Guilt in Motherhood with Renae Fieck
2336

Link to listener survey: https://survey.libsyn.com/minimalistmomspodcast

(Thank you so much for taking the time to fill this out!)

---------------------------

This week, I talk to fellow podcaster, Renae Fieck. Renae is the host of the The Charis Project. The show was designed to help women bring more space, grace and intention to their lives. She provides a platform for honest conversations with practical strategies that can be implemented to create a life of intention. We discuss her creation of the Charis Project along with the topic of ‘releasing guilt in motherhood’. I personally believe guilt in motherhood comes from a variety of areas (outside pressure vs. internal pressure.) Our conversation dives a bit deeper into how exactly to confront and conquer some of that noise.

We discuss:

  • The Charis Project Podcast
  • Transitioning to our conversation on releasing guilt in motherhood, I’m curious as to your own history in this area.
  • As mothers, we’re concerned about our children becoming bullies, bullying others and yet, we bully ourselves and think nothing of it, can you speak to this?
  • How do you self-motivate when you’re feeling mom guilt?
  • How do you tune out the voices/pressure of others that could prompt you to feel guilty?

EP82: The 'Yes' Trap with Jennifer Burnham
2165

This week, I interview organizational coach, Jennifer Burnham. Today, she will be speaking to the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ behind saying ‘yes’! As a culture we’ve become so accustomed to ‘busy’. We believe that the more we say yes, the more we will become. Better mothers. Better wives. Better friends. Better volunteers. Everything will be better. It’s impossible to keep up the charade. Very few of us (if anyone) can balance all of the invitations to busy that come our way. Busy ends up leaving us feeling bankrupt of ourselves.

We discuss:

  • How do you know discern what should be a top priority if all the options sound ‘good’?
  • How do we narrow our focus/calendar? 
  • How do 'people pleasers' establish confidence while saying 'no'?
  • When does it become selfish to balance ‘my needs’ vs. ‘other’s needs’?
  • Would you say that our current ‘pace’ is just a matter of using our time poorly? Or is it really a lack of assessment with ‘where our train is going?’

2088

This week, I am thrilled to bring you bestselling author, Gretchen Rubin. In her latest book,Outer Order, Inner Calm,Gretchen explores the relationship between our physical and mental space: outside order creating an inner calmness.

We discuss:

  • How Gretchen discovered outer order contributing to her own inner calm
  • Is the recent interest in decluttering/minimalism just a trend or are people truly catching on to this ‘better way to live’?
  • How personality contributes to our decluttering approach
  • Actionable steps for mothers to keep up with the clutter

EP80: Less-Is-More Parenting with Denaye Barahona
2919

This week, I am bringing you my interview with Denaye Barahona. Denaye is host of the Simple Families Podcast and is author of the new book Simple Happy Parenting. Her refreshing approach to minimalism and parenting is professional yet warm. She believes in a holistic approach to helping the whole family; living well through cultivating a healthy relationship with yourself, family and home. I’ve enjoyed listening to her podcast over the last several years and can’t wait to talk with her today about the idea of ‘less-is-more’ when parenting.

We discuss:

  • A definition of simple, happy parenting
  • How do we step away from a skittish mindset and move towards a more free, relaxed relationship with our children?
  • Some would argue: “Isn’t our job to protect our children from any difficulties that are in our control?” How would you respond?
  • Is the 'less-is-more' parenting approach only a trend?
  • How we can parent with a ‘less-is-more’ mentality when it comes to:
  • Food/Mealtimes
  • Free play at home
  • Manners
  • Sleep
  • Playground
  • School
  • The Outdoors

EP70: Minimalist Holiday Decor
1884

In this week’s episode, we’ll discuss how to be purposeful in our seasonal decorating without being a grinch.

You know how it goes. The school year has barely begun and retailers are already pushing holiday decor. Mid-October I walked into Costco only to be caught off guard by Christmas trees and twinkle lights. While there’s nothing wrong with crafting a cozy space to enjoy during the holiday, there is also something to be said about intentionality with what we bring into our homes.

EP40: Stuck on Sentiment
2533

Sentimental items are one of the toughest things to minimize. This week, we discuss those items that are saturated in memories: the coffee cup from college, the cabbage patch doll from our childhood, your wedding dress, your grandmother’s costume jewelry, your daughter’s artwork from preschool, or a clipping from your son’s first haircut.

Do we purge them? Do we store them? What do we do with them? We hope this conversation will inspire you to look at what you’re holding tight to and what you may (may) be able to part with.
