Halloween Ideas [Season 3, Episode 4]

We recently received this question from a Power of Moms Community member that sparked a great discussion at Power of Moms: "What low stress, Halloween traditions does your family love? We just received an invite to go trick-or-treating. If you love Halloween, you may be counting down, if you're like me, you may feel dread. What activities can my family do, costumes can I use and decorations can I put out to help this holiday feel uplifting and enjoyable for me, not just an expensive, time...

Make Laundry a Beautiful Experience [Season 3, Episode 2]

I KNOW it sounds crazy. How on earth can washing dirty clothes and linens be a beautiful experience? And why would we even want it to be beautiful? Isn’t laundry mundane, dirty work that we should do everything in our power to avoid? Ahhh, I understand the angst associated with laundry. Truly. But today I want to change the way you do laundry. And it has nothing to do with the soap you use or the way you fold or how you set up your laundry schedule. For a summary and Show Notes, visit ...


What My 18-Year-Old Actually Remembers from Childhood [Season 3, Episode 1]

I spent a lot of time worrying about "not being enough" for my children (and everyone else) while they were young.

Come listen to the conversation and take a deep breath! It all works out. :) For full show notes, see powerofmoms.com/radio/


Encore Podcast: Organizing a Beautiful Life that Fits on One Plate [Season 2 - Episode 22]

We all know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed. I think that’s a daily occurrence for most mothers. But what do we do when we feel like we can barely breathe?

In this audio post, I’ll share with you a strategy that has consistently helped me to manage what’s on my plate–and in the process, find...


Encore Podcast: Outer Order Contributes to Inner Calm with Gretchen Rubin [Season 2 - Episode 21]

So we invited Gretchen to join us on Power of Moms Radio to talk about this idea more in depth. When our homes are a mess, it feels impossible to function. But cleaning closets and wiping kitchen counters seems to “make our brains work better” and enables us to breathe more fully. But is the reverse also true? Does inner calm lead to outer order? Does outer order sometimes create a facade of inner calm? Is the word “contributes” the key here? (Meaning there’s more at play than we may...
