Ep. 017 Three Keys to a Happier Marriage // Jody Moore of Bold New Mom

Life Coach Jody Moore of Bold New Mom teaches three impactful mindset-shifts to improve our relationships

“Love is always going to serve you best. You are your best, most creative, most confident, most genius self when you’re operating in love.”

Jody Moore is a life coach and podcaster whose business has exploded in the past couple of years due to the wise principles that she teaches about how we can adjust our own thoughts in order to achieve more happiness in our relationships with others.

Jody teaches that happiness is a skill—something that we need to learn how to do and then work on it and practice over and over. On today’s podcast, she talks about three of her hallmark principles:

 

1) Your relationship is the story you tell yourself.  Make it a good one.

2) You are 100% responsible for your own emotions–and no one else’s.

3) Every person on earth is worthy of love, just as they are.

Ep. 015 Three Valentines Traditions for the Whole Family // Sarah McKenna of Bombshell Bling

Podcast explaining three awesome Valentines Day traditions for the entire family // 3 in 30 Takeaways for Moms Podcast

The first Valentines Day that my husband and I were dating, he showed up on my doorstep with flowers and a clue that started me on a scavenger hunt to romantic places all around our college town.

Seven years later, on our first Valentines Day as parents, he showed up on our doorstep with…a toilet plunger.  (You’ll have to listen to the episode to get the full story!)

Yes, becoming parents can definitely affect the romance of Valentines Day a bit–but there’s no reason why this “holiday of love” has to be limited to just you and your spouse.  February 14th can be a day to celebrate family love as well!

In this episode, my amazing sister Sarah McKenna, from the craft blog Bombshell Bling, shares three totally doable and super fun Valentines traditions for the entire family.

1) Secret Cupids: https://www.bombshellbling.com/secret-cupids-valentines-day-family-tradition/

2) Heart Attacks: https://www.bombshellbling.com/heart-attack/

3) Love Letters to your Kids: https://www.bombshellbling.com/mushy-love-letters-a-february-tradition/

All three of these traditions can be adapted for little kids up to teenagers, and all of them will bring your family closer together.  I hope you will give at least one of them a try, and let me know at my instagram account: @3in30podcast.

Ep. 013 How to Support those who are Grieving // Rachel Gainer of Rachel Rebuilt

A podcast with specific ideas of what to say and do for those who are grieving

Many of us know friends and family members who have lost precious loved ones.  During those heartbreaking times, it’s so hard to know what to say and do to show our love and support.

What are meaningful acts of service?  Which gifts are appropriate?  Is there anything we should or shouldn’t say?

On today’s podcast, we hear from a mother who has been there and has so much wisdom to share.  Several years ago, Rachel Gainer lost her two-month-old daughter, Daphne, and was engulfed in sorrow.  She talks about her journey to “rebuilding” her sense of self after Daphne’s death, and she shares invaluable insight into what it’s like to grieve and what we can do to serve those around us who are hurting.

This is an episode that everyone should listen to–because, at some point, we will all inevitably need to support someone whom we love who is grieving.  You won’t want to miss Rachel’s ideas for specific, heartfelt gifts we can send and meaningful words we can say.  You’ll also want to hear all about her angel baby, Daphne.

Ep. 010 Simple Holiday Traditions to Connect Generations

How to Create Traditions to Connect Generations

“How are you today, Grampy?”

“Oh the same: old and ugly, but contented.”

This is the opening line of this week’s interview with my 88-year-old grandpa.  You are going to love his personality and spunk, as he shares memories from his childhood Christmases.  My Granny also hops on to talk about what she remembers.  My heart just melts at the sound of their voices, and I am so grateful for all of the Christmas Eves that I spent in their home when I was a child.  (And we are headed there next week!  I can’t wait!)

Listen as I reflect on how to create cherished traditions that your children and maybe even grandchildren will remember, by creating “anchors” every year:

  1. A special food
  2. A meaningful gift
  3. A memorable activity

Stay tuned until the end of the episode to hear about my Christmas gift to you!  I think it will be useful to anyone who is a consistent listener to the 3 in 30 podcast.

Merry Christmas to all of you.  I truly love and appreciate you!
