Organizing is not my strong suit. It’s actually something that I tend to shy away from if I can help it. But in the interest of life-long learning and personal growth—and out of necessity because we had the huge move from Maui to Idaho coming up—I decided to tackle the topic with your help! This episode is packed with questions from Elevating Motherhood listeners. My friend Jennifer Ford Berry made this deep dive into getting more organized so easy! She helped me so much during this transition. This interview took place before I even started packing the first box (and before the baby was born in December!) I got to apply her insights from this chat to the move and WOW what a difference. Her guidance was with me the whole time and has even carried over into setting up my new home here in Idaho. Jennifer’s Bio: Jennifer Ford Berry is a professional organizer, best-selling author of the Organize Now series and Purpose Over Possessions…and she has a new book in May! She is also the host of The 29 Minute Mom Podcast—I was a guest on her show, too! She owns a semi-annual family consignment event: Mothertime Marketplace, is the president of Jennifer Ford Berry Ministries, and is a loving wife and mom of 2. She shares all kinds of insights and tips for organizing your life and home. We all come to this topic with different energy—some of us love organization, some of us avoid it—no matter where you are on your organization journey, Jennifer has some helpful thoughts that will speak to you!

“Ultimately, we recognize the season of Lent before Easter not because God demands it of us, not because Christ commanded it to prove our mettle, and not because we must perfect ourselves before we’re worthy of Easter,” writes Oxenreider. “We observe Lenten practices because they’re good for us… In a world that celebrates indulging our whims whenever we want, to practice the traditions of Lent is countercultural.” Today is the first day of Lent—which is holding a new meaning for me this year as I pack up my house and life on Maui and get ready to move to Idaho (ironically in the middle of the Lenten season this year). The message and meaning of Lent is helping me get through this move by bringing in notions of self-discipline and reflection (which I need right now). Many of us think of Lent as a time of lack—of fasting & taking away. But what if we could expand that perspective and see the “lack” or “taking away” as making room for more, for celebration. Fasting making room for feasting. (Lent’s purpose is to quite literally makes room for Easter). What if this year we don’t skip straight to the Easter baskets and egg hunts, but use this time to come out of this season (a two year long season of lack) more meaningfully and intentionally? If Lent is a new concept to you, don’t worry, we share the basics and history of Lent in this episode. If you’re an old hat at Lent, there’s something here for you, too, as Tsh Oxenreider walks us through her inspiring new book Bitter & Sweet as well her reasons why our world needs the life giving practice of Lent now more than ever. Tsh’s Bio: Tsh Oxenreider is the bestselling author of several books, including Bitter and Sweet: A Journey Into Easter and At Home in the World, her memoir about her family’s year traveling around the world and living out of backpacks. She’s also a travel guide, teacher, and podcaster, and she lives in Georgetown, Texas, with her husband and three children. She is equally happy snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef with her family and putzing around her own backyard. Find Tsh online at tshoxenreider.com.

My hair may be changing, but so am I. Growing out my grey is about soooooooo much more than hair. A year in, I’m more genuinely confident –that doesn’t mean I love every day, but my gosh, I see the growth literally and figuratively. I see the beauty and the potential. Maybe it’s because I’m a mom, but I know how quickly this transition will fly by, even if it takes years. In this episode I talk about: · Why I’m growing out my grey · Shout out to my hairdresser Tiana · How it all started · How it’s going · Vanity · Non-toxic shift · Primally Pure · The ups & downs of growing out my grey · Reflection · Self acceptance · Slowing down · The slow process of growing out my grey · Detachment · Understanding my whys behind my choice · Other people’s reactions to my decision · Feeling “old” or looking “old” with grey hair · The disbelief of others that I’m actually doing it · Obvious disapproval of others · Insults—intentional or not · The people who love it · Authenticity · How others have inspired me · How I’ve kept that ripple of inspiration going · Deep, instant connections · “You know you could just dye it” reactions · Why others choose to grow their grey · Months of unfolding · Endless support of Silver Sisters · #silversisters · #grombre · #growingoutmygrey · #greyhair · #grayhair · #silverhair · #greyhairmovement · Two funny stories about growing out my grey · Brad Paisley’s song “Then” · Fertility = youth · Different perspectives on aging
Have you thought about going back to school, pursuing your certification, degree, or even masters degree? Or maybe you’re dreaming of starting a business or passion project…but you’re a mom and busy and life seems overwhelming as is…so you question whether you can truly add one more thing to your plate financially, time wise, or even just mentally, emotionally, or physically. There are so many factors to consider when wondering if your dream can or should come to life. And right as you are working out the details in your head or journal, cue the mom guilt and imposter syndrome. But at the same time you look around and see that other moms are doing it or have done it. If you are anywhere on this journey toward making time for school, yourself, and/or your dreams, this episode is for you. Maui mama Malika Dudley is here to answer questions about her story that led her to obtaining her masters degree and starting a podcast called Comminification (all about the beautification of communication). All while mom-ing, working, and processing loss. She and I share about our masters degree journeys—and while we dive into the pragmatics of it (scheduling, cost, etc). you’ll see that this is a much bigger conversation than the questions and pros/cons list you might be compiling. At the end of our interview I was really struck by how much our journeys were about more than those initial lists in our heads…when really it came down to alignment, learning about ourselves, our families and our communities. This conversation is a living, breathing example of what it’s like when moms take the time to show up and pursue their passions. So if you’re thinking about going for it—whatever that means for you—get ready! You’re going to learn so much about yourself!

“We repeat what we don’t repair.” – Christine Langley-Obaugh Thanks for being here for this episode. You don’t have to be a mom to a daughter to benefit from today’s show. If you’re a woman, you’re already in a mother/daughter relationship (you are someone’s daughter). If you are a mom to a girl, there’s that dynamic, too. Do me a favor…hop over to IG after listening to this episode and look for the Episode 126 post…then share with me which relationship dynamic or lens first drew you to this topic. I’d love to know. That’s the interesting part of today’s conversation…we’re all bringing a different perspective to the table. It’s like looking at our past (back at our childhood), looking at the now (and our children’s childhood as well as our current relationship with our own mothers), and into our future (what we want our relationship with our children to look like in the future, how we want our relationship with our own mothers to change, and even looking at future in-law relationships)—all at the same time. The mother/daughter dynamic is so important in our everyday lives and in our society as a whole. Ann Dillard is here to tap into why that is, how we can heal every mother/daughter relationship in our lives, and offer us empowering, transformative insights into this vulnerable topic. Ann’s Bio: Ann Dillard is the founder of KIP Consulting Services, LLC and passionate about instilling hope and empowering individuals to live their best lives. She operates a thriving private practice in Decatur, GA, where she offers mental health services to teens girls and their families.

Fear, comparison, feeling inadequate, overwhelm, exhaustion…there are so many factors in our lives that bring on feelings of wanting to shut down. Especially as moms. Life is good and hard at the same time…but how do we live in that dichotomy? How can we embrace the hard parts of life and the highlight reel moments and learn from all of them? Author and speaker Lisa Whittle is here with us to share some ideas on this very subject. Lisa believes that two truths can be true at the same time. Things work together, even if they don’t seem to be working out. Our lives and circumstances are not either or… Lisa’s Bio: Lisa Whittle is the author of eight books, and her wit and bold bottom-line approach have made her a sought-after Bible teacher. She is also the creator of a companion video Bible study for Jesus over Everything. A pastor’s daughter and longtime ministry leader in issues relevant to the church, Lisa is the founder of Ministry Strong and the popular Jesus over Everything podcast, which debuted in the top 25 of Christian podcasts. Her love runs deep to see people pursue Jesus for life, grow deep roots of faith, and walk strong in the midst of a world that so often seems to have gone crazy. She and her family live in North Carolina. Her new book, The Hard Good, releases in early September.

“We gotta talk to our kids. We have to equip them to make good decisions and we have to teach them truths so they recognize lies.” Screen time, phones, tablets, computers…online predators, rule breaking, off the charts average daily screen times…parenting this generation of screen obsessed kids is so stressful. Most parents know that too much screen time, especially social media, is unhealthy for kids, but they don’t know how to set wise limits and teach their kids the “why” behind the rules. Today’s guest Jonathan McKee has over 20+ years of experience with youth ministry and family research that has taught him that parents need to connect with their kids just as much as they correct their kids. In his latest book Parenting Generation Screen: Guiding Your Kids to Be Wise in a Digital World, he offers insights that show us that safe, loving conversations about screen use that will set kids up for a lifetime of good decisions and habits. But how do we do that? Where do we start? Don’t worry, Jonathan covers aaaaaaaaaall things parenting and screens today. And if it’s not in this episode (we talk about A LOT!), you’ll probably find it in his book. Jonathan’s Bio: Jonathan McKee is the author of more than twenty-five books, including Teen’s Guide to Face-to-Face Connections in a Screen-to-Screen World; If I Had a Parenting Do Over; and the Amazon bestseller – The Guy’s Guide to God, Girls and the Phone in Your Pocket. He speaks to parents and leaders worldwide, all while providing free resources for moms and dads on his website becomingscreenwise.com. He draws from more than twenty years of experience working with teenagers, studying and writing about youth culture and the influence of digital media, and raising three kids with more devices than they can count! In 2018 Focus on the Family aired a broadcast of Jonathan McKee talking about helping our kids learn “wise posting in a digital world,” and plugging his book to teenagers, The Teen’s Guide to Social Media & Mobile Devices. The show was one of the top broadcasts of 2018.

We’re showing up. We’re doing the work. We see what we’re tasked with as women and now moms—that we need to heal wounds, mend relationships, set goals, establish our values, and act on them…but what are our options when it comes to getting support to help us do the internal work? When we think of seeking help some of the only things that come to mind are one on one sessions with a therapist and talk therapy. We’ve covered a few other options here on the podcast like brainspotting. But what else is there? My friend Elizabeth Fisher Good is rolling out a new, transformative option this week—coaching in a group setting with other supportive women. She’s here to share all the amazing details with us today…and I decided to share it with you now because I’ve seen what comes out of Elizabeth’s dedication to helping women heal. She is an amazing resource and this healing group is an incredible opportunity to join her program A Journey to More. She is a calling awakener--someone who supports women on their journeys to understand that they are enough while honoring that they also want more in their life, that they want to answer their callings and find their purpose.

I would bet money that no one understands “vs. culture” better than moms. We’re thrown into it from the moment we decide to start trying or find out we’re pregnant. In an instant, we’re thrown into hospital birth vs. homebirth questions, breastfeeding vs. formula, cloth diapers vs. disposable, this brand vs. that brand, that car seat vs. this car seat. It’s overwhelming and at the end of the day feels like nothing less than a freight train of advertising campaigns, personal opinions that feel more like personal attacks, and social pressure to “pick a side” and stick to it in every anti vs. pro argument out there. Just yuck. We’re told we have to buy the whole package or align with one side—and there is no opting out, you have to choose and you can’t switch sides. But we know that this just isn’t true. Examples of Vs. Culture: · Hospital vs. homebirth · Breastfeeding vs. bottle feeding · Homeschool vs. public school vs. private school (Homeschool even has secular vs. religious) · Vaccinated vs unvaccinated · Masks vs. no masks · Meat eaters vs. vegans · Android vs. iPhone · Pro-life vs. pro-choice · Republican vs. Democrat Vs. Culture Affects Us on So Many Levels: · Personal · Family · Friends · Community · Larger culture FULL SHOW NOTES AVAILABLE AT: WWW.ELEVATINGMOTHERHOOD.COM  Let’s Keep Talking About This! · On Instagram: @loribethauldridge + @elevatingmotherhood · On Patreon: www.patreon.com/elevatingmotherhood · Through the contact form here on the website Please Visit Today’s Sponsors: Blossom & Root.

“How do I want to feel today?” Are priorities and boundaries easy for you? Can you take a week off of work or a break from life and feel rested at the end of it? Are there moments in your life (like all of 2020 and now 2021) that have you feeling like you need to recover from an event or busy season? Gillian Behnke is here to share 6 ideas with us that can help us on our road to (much needed!) rest and recovery. All 6 ideas begin with the letter R...but by the time we ended our chat, we’d come up with 14 Rs altogether.

Today’s guest wrote a lovely, inspiring book called Growing Slow: Lessons on Unhurrying Your Heart from an Accidental Farm Girl. I devoured this book. I experienced the blessed timing of reading this book right after the book from last week’s episode with Ginger Stache, Chasing Wonder: Small Steps Toward a Life of Big Adventure…and mamas, if I could recommend reading any two books back to back, it would be these two! In Growing Slow, Jennifer addresses all kinds of issues mamas struggle with and provides so much encouragement for our insecure mama moments when we feel like we’re falling behind, or our kids are falling behind, when we’re struggling to find time for ourselves…and even big moments when we’re looking at our life and realizing this is NOT what we expected or planned. In this conversation, Jennifer reminds us that all the little things are the mattering things. And that it’s okay to change. Along with lots of other lovely reminders that will fill your mama heart. Thanks for being here for this joyful conversation. Jennifer’s Bio: Jennifer Dukes Lee lives on the fifth-generation Lee family farm in Iowa, where she and her husband are raising crops, pigs, and two beautiful humans. She writes books, loves queso, and enjoys singing too loudly to songs with great harmony. Once upon a time, she didn't believe in Jesus; now he's her CEO.

We’re always chasing after something…why not chase after wonder? The world is filled with wonder. It’s also filled with messages of chaos, burn out, busy-ness, and overwhelm. This past year has been no exception—especially for moms. When I picked up Ginger Stache’s book Chasing Wonder, all of those life sucking messages seemed to disappear. It was like a pressure valve released in my life and I was free to see the wonder around me again. Ginger is a mom and author I am really excited to share with you. She is here with us today to share some of that release and encouragement I think our mama hearts and minds could really use right now. Ginger’s Bio: Ginger Stache is the Chief Creative Officer of Joyce Meyer Ministries. She has worked in television for over 35 years, and, in that time, has interviewed Joyce and many influential Christian figures.

“…(then there’s) the societal pressure, stigmas, & expectations that you have to choose one eating way, jump on that ship, then fire cannons at everybody else.” What motivates people to start businesses? Channels? Recipes? Blogs? And what inspires people to choose eating styles? Paleo? Keto? Vegan? Whole 30? What motivates people to do the two together and show up for others with ideas for eating? Maui Mama Jessica Ross is here with us today to share her heart behind her vegan cooking show Let’s Feed Them Plants on Patreon. I personally follow Jessica because her recipes are delicious and years ago I discovered that I can get my family to willingly eat more vegetables when I lean into vegan recipes. You all know I’m not a vegan…and that I don’t believe there is a one size fits all answer for everyone (ever) including eating styles. Jessica’s goal is not to talk you into becoming a vegan or try to convince you but to go plant-based, but instead wants to be a resource for families who are interested. Jessica’s Bio: Jessica Ross is the creator of Let's Feed Them Plants™, an online cooking show that she created in her home kitchen on the beautiful island of Maui. The recipes she posts are the same ones that she feeds her family in real life. Her goal is to help make plant-based decisions more convenient, satisfying, and relatable. ⁠ ⁠ Many of Jessica’s recipes are comfort foods that everyone can enjoy whether they're plant-based or not.⁠ They are easily modifiable for those thriving on vegetarian, gluten-free or oil-free lifestyles. ⁠All of her recipes can be viewed, downloaded, and printed for FREE. Each of them comes with a beautiful recipe card that she hopes will hopefully become a permanent part of your meal rotations at home.⁠ FULL SHOW NOTES AVAILABLE AT: WWW.ELEVATINGMOTHERHOOD.COM  Elevating Motherhood Links: Website: www.elevatingmotherhood.com Instagram: @loribethauldridge @elevatingmotherhood Patreon: www.patreon.com/elevatingmotherhood Please visit today’s sponsors: Join Lori Beth on Patreon!

I’m sure I’m not the only one who is feeling ready for get togethers and BBQs and celebrations with friends and family. I personally love celebrating and eating together as much as possible…but I do know there is sometimes some trepidation when it comes to planning these kinds of events. Modern pressure tells us we need to host a Pinterest worthy celebration and nothing less. I think in our heart of hearts we know that’s not true, but that doesn’t always make the stress of party or meal prepping any easier. But Abby Turner of A Tabletop Affair is with us today to provide encouragement, help us understand why celebrating in community is so important and worthy of our time, and share ideas from her new book The Living Table. Abby’s Bio: Abby Turner is a young professional who is single and loving life as a food blogger, speaker, and writer. Born into a large family, she grew up in Central Arkansas, where she learned the importance of community and Biblical hospitality at a young age. After completing undergraduate degrees at Ouachita Baptist University and obtaining her Master's from Baylor, Abby lived in 6 states in 5 years, learning that community is essential to a healthy relationship with Christ. Over the last few years, Abby has spoken at college/universities, churches, companies and has been featured on regional TV shows and podcasts. Abby's passion is to encourage women to stop wasting time waiting for the perfect family, house, or table and to start opening their homes, cooking for friends and building community. You can learn more about Abby and enjoy even more recipes by visiting her website at atabletopaffair.com.

Have you ever thought of your life in terms of being satisfied with it or not? To be honest, I’m not sure the thought of whether I was “satisfied” in my life and motherhood really ever crossed my heart, but when Alyssa Bethke’s book title came across my desk, I thought about the notion of satisfaction…and it became very clear that while maybe it’s something that wasn’t obvious to me in the past, upon reflection I realized that it is something that probably showed up often in my actions and self-talk. So we’re going to talk about it today—feeling satisfied in life and motherhood. Alyssa is going to share what brings her peace and satisfaction. We’re going to tackle obstacles to feeling satisfied and just unpack and encourage all at the same time. I’m really glad you’re here for this conversation. I know we both hope it leaves you feeling inspired and closer to satisfied. Alyssa’s Bio: Alyssa Bethke is a mother of three children, Kinsley, Kannon, and Lucy, and a dog named Aslan. She and her husband, Jeff Bethke, live on Maui, and are bloggers, YouTubers, and hosts of The Real-Life podcast. Jeff and Alyssa are the New York Times bestselling authors of Jesus > Religion and It's Not What You Think and Love That Lasts. They are passionate about encouraging and strengthening families through their awesome work at familyteams.com. FULL SHOW NOTES AVAILABLE AT: WWW.ELEVATINGMOTHERHOOD.COM  Join Lori Beth on Patreon!

This is an episode that absolutely reminds me of why I love podcasting so much. This episode is not only going to be a jam packed resource for you, a solid lead on where to start with metabolic health, but also an empowering conversation that will leave you more curious about your own body and health to the point that you’ll want to learn more AND take action. Metabolic health is becoming more mainstream and thank goodness it is because metabolic markers are huge indicators in our lives! Today you are going to learn a ton of information about your body, your health, eating, lifestyle and so much more—information that’s going to empower you on your health (and life!) journey. Kori’s Bio: Kori Meloy helps women restore their metabolism & youthful vitality through her online course, Freely Rooted. Through her journey holistically healing her Endometriosis & other chronic issues, she became passionate about answering the question “how do we eat, live, & move in a way that supports our actual physiological design?” If we knew the answer to this, we would know how to lay the foundation for our bodies to fall into balance & thrive! In a world of diet culture & noisy health + wellness advice, she realized that we are moving further and further away from what is truly supportive to the body. Kori set out to help women restore their own imbalances by taking charge of their health, rediscovering their biological design, & returning to real food. Kori is pregnant with her second child & lives on the island of Maui with her husband & 3 year old son.

Our bodies are AMAZING! And not just because they can grow and sustain babies but because of how they work. This conversation with Greta Wyeth will leave you feeling very appreciative of all your body can do. One of Greta’s many missions is to help women educate themselves about their bodies so they can clearly communicate and get the help they need. She goes about this in a really interesting way. I didn’t feel like I was being lectured to about what my body can do, but instead I felt awakened to mind-blowing ways my body works and communicates. I WANT to know more about my body and muscles and movement and fascia—not out of obligation, but out of pure curiosity & empowerment! Fascia is a buzz word right now, and for great reasons! Greta shares with us what it is, what it does, what it looks like, and shares recent discoveries about its role in the body. But first she walks us through self-education, our physical body, muscle function, re-educating our pelvic floor, movement (like Pilates) and helps us understand more about ourselves so by the time we cover fascia, it just “clicks.” Greta’s Bio: Greta Wyeth is a Nationally Certified and STOTT Certified Pilates Teacher who is rooted in science and dedicated to the inter-relatedness of form and function in the human body. She believes that knowledge of your own body along with how and why it moves can inform and inspire healthy movement patterns. Greta teaches her clients how to find effective movement patterns and the muscle activation that promotes strength, balance, and alignment. Having worked with NFL and MSL athletes and being a lead referral by Sutter Health and Kaiser Permanente OB/GYNs, Greta helps clients become their own best advocates. Greta is the Founder of Still Point Movement, an education specialist, course creator and mom of 2. FULL SHOW NOTES AVAILABLE AT: WWW.ELEVATINGMOTHERHOOD.COM Join Lori Beth on Patreon!

“There’s no better time to heal than now." -Jana Glass A listener wrote in and suggested that I interview today’s guest Jana Glass about brainspotting—and I’m so grateful she did! If you ever have an interesting guest or topic that you believe could benefit moms, please reach out and share—the result could be something like today’s awesome episode! Jana is going to share a therapy technique called brainspotting—she’ll describe what it is, how it works, what a brainspotting session looks like, and how it can help moms (during any time in their lives, but also specifically during the perinatal period). She also answers practical questions like “How do you know when you need therapy?” and “Who goes to therapy & why?” I appreciate her approach to trauma and how she describes it as treatable…as well as her beliefs that there is no better time to heal than now, the strongest and bravest people reach out for support, and when we heal birthgivers, we heal the world. This episode contains tons of general brainspotting information (great for anyone seeking healing modalities) as well as specific info for moms and moms to be. Jana’s Bio: Jana Glass is a Licensed Professional Counselor certified in Brainspotting, Addictions, Perinatal Mental Health, and Telemental Health. She is in private practice in Atlanta, Georgia, USA specializing in treating trauma, addictions, and perinatal mental health including decisions and challenges around family expansion through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. She found her own perinatal healing through Brainspotting and is passionate about helping people heal and enjoy their role as a parent.
