I am so excited to be back here with you all… What a summer. I am so excited to reconnect and reset for the coming months, and to let you know what to expect for me, the community and the podcast


Before I get into it…

The Risky Behavior and Teens summit was AMAZING – thank you to my guests and everyone who registered – If you missed it, go to www.joyfulcourage.com/summit-shop and check it out – you can also see and purchase past summits that you may have missed.


Because of you I was able to send $800 to Bellamy Shaffner from Revolutionary Humans – place where parenting and social justive intersect. I love her work and am so happy to support her! I still have some intention bracelets left from the fundraiser – go to www.joyfulcourage.com/blm to check out what is still in stock.

On a professional level

–       Evaluated representation on the podcast/ what I want the “ecosystem” to look like

  • Can get ever better at vetting guests and seeking out more diverse voices

  • AND, really pretty proud of who I have had on

  • What are the conversations that I want to be having, that I see as useful?

  • Parenting coupled WITH the personal growth and BEING that we need when showing up for our kids and our life

On a personal level

As some of you know, back in the fall my husband was diagnosed with cancer

–       Summer of treatment

–       The family dynamic

–       Self/soul care has been everything

–       What we are heading into

–       Putting surrender into practice is a deeply meaningful way

On a collective level…

Covid flushing up uncertainty

–       Health issues

–       Relationship issues

–       Parenting issues

–       Acknowledging our own relationship with uncertainty – can we surrender to not knowing?

–       Can we let go?

–       Can we hold that we may just be in the birth canal of something new and different if we trust the process?

–       Where is resistance ADDING to our suffering? Can you deep dive into that?

And the politics…

–       You aren’t here for politics, AND…

–       This is who I am

  • I do identify as a democrat

  • I believe that the strongest countries take care of their most disenfranchised people

  • I believe that institutional racism is real

  • I believe LQBTQ people deserve equal rights

  • I believe in the importance, and the urgency, of slowing down climate change and thinking about future impact of how we treat/use our planet

  • I am disgusted by what’s happening to families at the boarder.

–       The podcast WILL reflect this ^^^ and that is ok, it’s MY show

–       YOU get to decide what you take away, what you leave behind, and whether or not to listen in…

–       My guests WILL align with my internal compass

–       I WILL talk about my own learning and processing as a human, as well as a parent
