What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

Joyful Courage to me is stepping out of my comfort zone into unknown places with an open mind- doing that in parenting but also doing that more and more in my personal life. It’s doing things like taking a dance class when I’ve never danced in my life or playing more in my life, taking more time to do things that feel rewarding to me.

See you next week!! 🙂

Troomi Wireless.

Hey friends!

I am so excited to tell you about my new podcast sponsor – Troomi Wireless.

SO MANY of you send me emails and questions about phones – when to get them for your kiddos, how to limit their use….

It can be super challenging to buy a phone and try and figure out how to make it do less. 

Troomi GETS THE STRUGGLE and has created the device that parents are looking for.

Troomi is a phone that grows alongside your child. Let me tell you how it works….

It is a smartphone that starts off with only talk and text, letting you build a safelist of numbers. With the Troomi KidSmart Dialer, your child can only contact and be contacted by contacts listed in their safelist.

Also, these phones allow you to create a custom experience that fits your child’s needs and maturity, preparing them for a future of responsible tech use. Eventually, you can graduate them into group text, picture and video messaging, safe internet and safe apps as their needs evolve!

Now, YOU get to decide what is best for your family. I know that many of you are wondering HOW to venture into the smartphone world in a way that feels gradual and safe… This is a great solution. I would have jumped on this when my kids were in middle school, it would have made my life so much easier…

There is a holiday promotion going on right now –  Joyful Courage parents will get 50% off their purchase when using the coupon code JOYFULCOURAGE. 

Go to troomi.com right now and check it out. Troomi.com and use promo code joyfulcourage for 50% off your purchase through the month of November.
