Feel Drained? Why Stealing Moments of Joy Matter
13:01

Life is busy, chaotic, and we often put ourselves on the back burner. Rationalizing if we really need that Starbucks drink, rushing to get the kids to activity after activity making sure the kids have all their basic needs met and more while we have barely managed to eat a cheese stick all day, but have no question picking up a special treat for our kids to let them know we love them. GIRL we gotta LOVE US! In the chaos we have to steal moments of joy. Little moments throughout the day to pour back into yourself. Enough mom guilt, enough getting by, stop running off fumes....lets go!

UNTSUCK SERIERS: Perfectionism. Is it holding you back from showing up?!
30:18

Perfectionism doesn't help us show up at our best, doing our best does. Perfectionism is what holds us back, keeps our fear in control, and creates little stress demons in our life because we are comparing ourselves to this imaginary bar that is our unrealistic expectations. If you want to stop being paralyzed and call out our toxic perfectionism (which hey you may not even is toxic) then this episode is for you! Tough love at its best because YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!

Motherhood Without Guilt
32:11

None of us are exempted from mom guilt. And although some of us may have been told that motherhood would be hard, no one tells you that the hardest part will be you being the hardest on yourself. Guilt can be good, it helps us navigate right from wrong and think about our actions. But MOM GUILT, has a tendency to drown us in shame, self sabotage, depression, unrealistic expectations and a ton of other debilitating things. If you are feeling all the mom guilt today, or if you feel like you are not hitting the mark in the mom game listen in to this episode.

Family Gratitude Questions #2
05:54

During the month of November I wanted to focus on creating conversations with our kids around gratitude. When we focus on all the things we are grateful for it has long lasting positive effects on our brain and our day! Each day I will share a gratitude questions to share and have a discussion with. There is no wrong or right way to utilize these questions. Sometimes your kids are little and you need to take a yes or no answer as sufficient, if we have older kids we may need to include more specifics or details, you can rabid trail, add in more in depth questions, etc. The goal is to learn more about each other, practice gratitude together, communicate, and have fun!

Find Yourself focusing on All The Ways You Fall Short? Your Negative Attributes? Nah friend, nah.
16:56

We are so hard on ourselves 99.8% of the time. In motherhood we focus on the ONE loss or the ONE ball dropped instead of the whole picture. We focus on the mistake we made during that argument with our husband. We focus on the dumb thing we shouldn't have said with our friends. NO! We have to stop! Let's stop focusing on the negative things, the things we dislike about ourselves, and start seeing the big picture. If that's hard for you like it is for me, this episode is for you! Imma tell you some truths straight up and anytime you get in your head about what you did wrong (which probably only you noticed) re play this over and over again! lol

Why Handing Your Kids Technology is More Dangerous Than You thought
45:32

*Episode is not appropriate for children*
It's hard to stand firm on technology and social media with our kids when you almost feel guilty for not being like all the other parents. We somehow feel like our kids might be missing out if they don't have a phone. And kids with phones make the other kids without phones feel like they are missing out.
We had a recent run in with our daughter receiving inappropriate messages on a game she was playing and I immediately reached out to Dolly Denson knowing that she would understand my situation and be able to guide me on protecting my children online.  Dolly has created "Be THAT Mom" Movement after seeing the aftermath of giving her own children phones at a young age and how it impacted their life.

Part 2: Childhood Trauma, Abuse, Healing, and the Behind the Scenes Life of...Me
51:03

This is Part 2 of a behind the scenes listen into my life growing up. It's important to know because when you listen to So She Grows or hear any trainings from me, you can now see that I speak out of experience, love, perspective, empathy and genuine desires to help, grow, and heal. As humans our pasts and experiences have shaped us, they mold us into who we are today. We can use trauma to bury us or we can use it to rise above and be a light for others. Child trauma, alcohol abuse, physical abuse, mental abuse, abandonment, sexual abuse..are all unfortunate experiences that require deep healing. Please seek professional help if you feel like the burdens are too deep to bare or if you have yet to find peace and healing with those pains. Your feelings are valid. And it's ok to seek help. 
**Disclaimers
- this is NOT an episode for kids to be present listening to. 
- do not listen if past childhood trauma, abuse of any kind, etc are triggers for you and you struggle with re opening those wounds. Take care in your wellness and don't listen if it will position you in a bad place. 
- this episode was not made with the intent to hurt family members or friends. Simply the sharing of my story. and I love you.

Are You Hiding Your Postpartum Depression and How to Overcome Image Insecurities with Heather Brown
34:35

When we birth our children, we have this overwhelming sense of being called to be super mom. To never skip a beat. Despite putting our bodies through the most traumatic event (albeit beautiful but still traumatic) ever. Postpartum Depression is something we often feel shame, embarrassment, inadequacy, and helplessness. Because of that we try to hide our postpartum anxieties and depression. We try to hide our struggles. 
Today I am hanging with Heather Brown of My Life Well Loved
to talk about postpartum depression and image insecurities. Why we shouldn't be afraid to be honest with those around us about our struggles in motherhood and why we hide them instead.

Heather Avis- Adoption, Down Syndrome, Motherhood & The Lucky Few
50:57

Heather Avis and I talk about motherhood, adoption, down syndrome, how she would change society's view of down syndrome and just REAL. LIFE. Heather's book recently released in March, The Lucky Few. Which I read in one sitting in a Barnes & Noble. As a mom with relatively healthy children, I have no idea what motherhood looks like raising a child with down syndrome. With any unfamiliar territory you aren't sure what to ask, how to ask it, or how to help. Or even how to create a relationship with that mother or your children and theirs. Luckily this podcast I feel like gives me permission to ask what we normally don't find "socially acceptable" to ask. And I am so glad I did. I learned SO MUCH from her book, Heather's blog, and through this interview.
