Keeping on in our series on making the most of our summer — beyond just making them fun for kids — for the next two episodes, Kendra and I each tap into our wheelhouses and help each other. First up... I'm helping Kendra prep for her family's summer vacation. She admits they don't travel much, and well — we do quite a bit. So in this chat, you'll hear me walk her through the ins and outs of packing, roadtripping, and guesthouse life. Most of all, we get into the most important key to...

Continuing our series on grown-upping the summer, this time Kendra and I talk about work. Because sure, it’s summer, but also, we’re adults with jobs and stuff. As self-employed types, we talk about how we get work done with kids in the house — hers are a bit younger, so she shares juggling toddlers and young school-age kiddos, while my oldest is now 13 and I can attest: it makes allllll the difference now in my own work life. Basically, what I’m saying to the working parents with tinies...

Summertime isn’t just for kids or students! Kendra and I start a new series here on how we can make the most out of our own summers, even if we’ve got kids at home, or even if not much as changed in our working day-to-day. In this first installment, we talk about bucket lists… in that’s fun to have our own. Sure, we make one with the kids, but who’s to say we can’t do our own? It all comes down to reasonable expectations — no remodeling the entire house or spontaneous 3,000 mile road...

We’re wrapping up our series on re-learning things as an adult! Part 1 covered relationships, part 2 was physical health, part 3 was work, and for this last one? We’re tackling education. Not the educational system, nor our kids’ academics — we’re referring to our own self-education, whether it’s about the practical things we’ve come to learn are important (personal finance) or how to keep your brain engaged, even when life is busy (puzzles). Come along for the ride! Links From This...

Continuing our series on things we’ve re-learned in our adulthoods, in this episode we're talking work. Erin and I are both self-employed, so we determine the course for most of our working rhythm — which is both a huge privilege and a responsibility. We talk about how our ideas of what it means to work well has evolved over the years, as well as our most helpful tips we're still learning when it comes to doing good work.

We're continuing our series on things we've re-learned in our adulthoods, where we explore a few topics we thought about (or were taught) differently when we were younger than what we believe now. In this one, we're exploring physical stuff — specifically, eating, sleeping, and moving. It's almost impossible to stay static about your philosophy on health, both because what kid cares about omega-3s and getting 8-10 hours of shuteye every night, but also because of science. We simply...

We're starting a new series! In this one, Erin and I talk about re-learning things as an adult. We all learn things growing up, many of them subconsciously. And then we often deconstruct, then re-learn new ideas, truths, and nuances about life as we get older. It's a decent way to gain some wisdom. In part one, we're talking about relationships. What are the ingredients for good, healthy ones? How do we set healthy boundaries? What does it mean to be yourself? It's a good one! Links...

Social Self-Care (3/4) | 123

Yeah, it seems weird to say storytelling is part of self-care, much less social self-care — but hear us out. Haley and I talk about why infusing our lives with good stories makes us better people, and therefore, better members of society. Stories inform our moral imagination, a place to hang wisdom and complicated ideas, and teach us what collectively matters to us: we’re designed to learn, love, and carry stories with us. Notes From This Episode: Social Self-Care, Part 1Social...

Continuing our series on social self-care, this time Haley and I talk about stewardship: caring for the things we've been given. What does that look like in real life? It was commonplace for our grandparents' generation to 'use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without,' as the war slogan reminded them—it was just part of life. But we live in a throwaway culture now. “Reusing something instead of immediately discarding it, when done for the right reasons, can be an act of love which...

In this new series, co-host Haley Stewart and I deep-diving about self-care—but not just self-care. We're talking self-care for the greater good; the simple-but-profound idea that when we take care of ourselves, we're better members of society. We're better neighbors, friends, parents, spouses... we're just better people for the world around us. It's more than just monthly manicures: it's about being the healthiest version of ourselves. Here in Part 1, we're unpacking friendships, and...

We're wrapping up this deep-dive on travel with Part 4: making it meaningful, both while you're on the road and when you return. Because it's all well and good to plan adventures and get excited, but what about bonding? Loving the experience? Making memories? And coming home well? Steph and I talk debriefing—landing the plane relationally and emotionally—as well as soaking in the moment while you're there. When you embrace not being able to do everything, it's easier to be fully in the...

Let’s keep talking about travel! In this part of our deep-dive, Stephanie and I get into the stuff you need to know about traveling internationally. Because even if it doesn’t feel like it, you can do this with your kiddos, even with just a few weeks' vacation time — it just takes planning and an open mind. Passports, visas, language barriers, jet lag, currency, public transportation, and more… We’ve got you covered. Notes From This Episode: The Simple Show on...

Continuing our series on travel, in this episode (and in the one after), Stephanie and I break down the prepping that has to happen in order to make a trip happen. This is the part that keeps many people from doing more than a weekend away at the in-laws, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. We talk about saving money beforehand, scoring the best flights, cutting costs out on the road (it all has to do with when and where), finding the best-for-you housing, and of course, packing...

Imagine if your Bible 101 class was taught by Us Weekly. I know, it sounds bizarre. That’s the newest project from my friends Knox and Jamie from The Popcast, so it kinda makes sense now, right? Each episode of The Bible Binge involves Knox and Jamie taking both the familiar and obscure stories found in scripture, and with equal parts humor and insight, they walk us through the odd circumstances in which these ancient figures find themselves. Whether these are the stories you learned at...

I love to travel, and my co-host Stephanie loves to travel. But we get that not everybody works for themselves or has the flexibility to travel long lengths of time. So? For the next month, we're gonna share what we know about extended travel from our family's experiences, and help you make them work for a typical two-week time off work. Will we challenge you to think outside the box? Sure. Will we guilt you into feeling like you should be someone you're not? No way. In this first episode...

Both of us get one of the kindest, most surprising comments about what we put out in the world: “I love your Spotify playlists!” We’re totally floored by this, because we honestly just love making playlists and are happy to share them. And hey, we love that you love them—and to us, this means we must have a thing for music. So in this episode, we start off with our backgrounds: How did both of us come...
