Episode 058: Crisis and Family Culture with Jodi Chaffee

12/4/2018
More
I often refer to my situation as being in crisis mode. Being in this attitude of living is not very conducive to an intentional family culture! A crisis can impact your family to come together and bond, but it is NOT ideal. Often, however, it isn't the crisis, situation or struggle that matters as much as what we do when there is a crisis that matters. To create growth for our families, we don't need to have to wait for a crisis. Actually, intentionally shaping our family culture is like...

Episode 057: Struggling Through Divine Discontent with Jodi Chaffee

11/27/2018
More
In a talk given at a Woman’s Conference in October, Michelle Craig discussed the concept of “divine discontent.” Neal Maxwell often used this term in his speeches to describe times when God unsettles our comfort to inspire us to make a change in our lives. Craig describes divine discontent like this: “Divine discontent comes when we compare ‘what we are [to] what we have the power to become.’ Each of us, if we are honest, feels a gap between where and who we are, and where and who we want...

Episode 056: Wax On with Jodi Chaffee

11/20/2018
More
If you haven't seen the classic film The Karate Kid then you are seriously missing out, and your childhood was deprived! One of the things that makes that movie a classic is when Mr. Miyagi is supposed to be teaching Daniel La Russo how to do karate, he makes him do his house chores instead. He has him wax his cars, paint his fences, paint his house, and sand his deck. Daniel starts to get impatient with these tasks and starts to question whether is he ever going to learn anything about...

Episode 055: The Family Board Meeting with Jim Sheils

11/13/2018
More
When my oldest turned nine this year, it really dawned on me that we are already halfway through her childhood, and that we only have as much time left with her as we've had so far. It was alarming to think that we really only have nine short years left with her! This idea that we only have these 18 Summers with our children is so important to remember. We aren't going to suddenly have a good relationship with them when they are teens, or adults! The relationships we have with our children...

Episode 054: “To Whom Much is Given, Much is Required” with Marissa Levin

11/6/2018
More
Every culture needs to be intentional. Establishing your values starts with understanding that you are a leader as a parent, and that you are always being observed by your children. Always being honest as a parent is the foundation of integrity for your family. It all starts with us leading out with our example of living our values. I've been thinking a lot about this concept of being goal-oriented and how this is what having a family culture is all about. When you have a set vision for...

Episode 053: Friending Culture with Noelle Rhodes

10/30/2018
More
My life has been a roller coaster around friendships. I learned early on about rejection. Family friends were the way to go when I was little, but then during elementary school, it was all about BFFs. I had a close friend for three years, and then she actually dumped me in middle school. It was rough. I spent the rest of those middle school years virtually friendless. I lived right next door to my school, so I got a laminated pass to go home for lunch where I would spend the hour snacking...

Episode 052: “A Double Minded Man Is Unstable In All His Ways”

10/23/2018
More
Last night I had a dream that woke me up like a nightmare, but the weird this is, it wasn't a scary dream. Still, I woke up shook and afraid. Here's what happened: I dreamed my family had gotten a nice new car. We were preparing to park it in a city, and trying to figure out how to hide our valuables so we wouldn't draw attention to our car when we left it. For some reason, I got out of the car to try and figure out this detail, and I'd forgotten to put the car in park. We realized this...

Episode 051: Supporting Innovation with Chaz Freutel

10/16/2018
More
About this Episode I've been learning a lot lately about why it's so important to have an entrepreneurial mindset, and it isn't just to become an entrepreneur. I've been listening to a talk by Oliver DeMille of A Thomas Jefferson Education (tjed.org), and he talks a lot about the development of our economy and our education. In this talk I've been listening to, he's talking about how our society has come through an institutional era, and has now crossed into an innovation era. Yet, our...

10/2/2018

I had a great time talking with Jade, and catching up with her! She and I met eleven years ago while attending school at Brigham Young University. Since then, we both have started our families, and our projects! Jade started her blog, Jonesin’ for Taste nine years ago to share her favorite easy recipes, and maybe earn a little income on the side. Her husband’s job over the years has had a varied schedule so she has had to find creative ways to have family meals together every day. It’s...

I learned so much from Kerry, and the importance of unstructured time. I have been focusing a lot of my studies lately around coping skills, and she and I talked about this idea that we all have a coping strategy to escape from our stressful lives, right?! How often do we come home from a stressful day and watch TV? Well, kids spend time on their devices because it is their way of coping with how over scheduled their lives are!

Episode 047: Connor Boyack – Free Market and Family Culture

9/11/2018
More
Throughout this episode, Connor often refers to the importance of incentives. In any situation, there are rewards and there are incentives. Incentives are the anticipation of a reward, and the reward comes after the work is done. Without an incentive, it may be harder to motivate yourself or others to do a job well done. There are some inherent incentives to certain things. For example, we have an incentive to earn a living so that we can provide for ourselves and our families, and avoid...

Episode 046 Solo: What Family Culture Boils Down To

6/26/2018
More
It’s hard to say which would be more discouraging: drifting from job to job because you’re always the first to be laid off, or laboring in monotonous obscurity at the same job. The first results from not doing what you are told to do, the second from doing only what you are told to do. You can “get by” for a time following either approach, but you will never get ahead. Personal initiative is more important in today’s enlightened, high-tech workplace than it was during the Industrial Age,...
