Can I Afford It?

6/9/2021
This past week we introduced a game that, ironically, was a "game-changer" in our life. It was a powerful game that shifted our perspective and made one pivotal shift in both semantics and mindset in our lives. Creating financial literacy at home - helping your children understand about investments, liabilities, assets and more - is something we see as a critical life skill. Do you - and your children - know how to make money work for the life you want to live? Do you know how to manage it...

Connected...or Codependent?

4/28/2021
Ah, codependency - is it clearly identified, or a buzzword we can't quite grasp? Nathan and I are pretty much together 24/7 and definitely weigh in with each other on making decisions. Yet how do you tow the line from just being connected to an unhealthy codependency? We break it down in this week's podcast, not to trivialize or negate the true complexity of this, but to simply open the door to exploring it more for yourself, and whether this is an area you can work on more in your...

Om and Namaste At Home

4/21/2021
This week we're getting to the core of what "namaste" really means to us, as well as how we put the "om" in hOMe.

We'll share about the symbol breakdown of the word "om", my definition of "namaste", as well as sharing about a fascinating experiment, and how the movie Avatar relates. Are you feeling that wonderful sense of "om" in your life?

Things Unsaid

3/31/2021
I've talked often about how we can use our words to communicate, but it takes way more to truly connect. It's knowing our personality styles and how to speak to each other in a way where everyone is heard...and it's in the nonverbal cues that speak so loudly. We go over five nonverbal cues this week that are like shifting from song lyrics to a full musical performance. It's more than simply words - what is left unsaid that is showing up in your life?

A busy...or FULL life?

3/24/2021
Do you have a full life...or a busy one? Sometimes we wear our "busy" as a badge of honor; yet is that really the life you want to live? Is that the excuse you want to give? Sometimes there IS a season for being busy and really hustling hard. But the term "busy" vs. having a full life...there is a different mindset around these.

My Soul Is Crying For A Change

3/3/2021
Change is inevitable in our lives…yet it can be scary and overwhelming. How are you navigating change? In your home, your work…your life? Sometimes we’re navigating change that is unwanted or unexpected, like the weather or, let’s say, 2020 as a whole. But then again, sometimes the changes are those aches and pains of unrest, resentment, frustration and more, and they will continue to pester us until we proactively incite a change in our lives. So what are you doing to navigate change?...
