In this modern era when many of us have cameras in our pockets at every moment of the day, we take a lot of photos of our children. The storage on our phones is full, and the children in our homes are sick of being little on-demand models.

But we want the memories! We want to capture their cute little faces! How can we document our family life without torturing our children and driving ourselves crazy in the process??

It’s possible, and professional photographer and mother of three Rebecca Sior is on the podcast today to teach us HOW.

This interview is full of practical takeaways that will shift your perspective about which photos are worth taking—and how to get those photos in the most painless ways possible.

53: How to Show Up in the World with Confidence–Even When You Don’t Have Confidence // Brooke White

Musician Brooke White teaches three lessons on how to show up in the world with confidence (even if you are scared)

If you have a dream, big or small, that’s been tugging on your heart–or if you’ve allowed your fears to get in the way of you showing up fully in the world–this episode is for YOU.

Brooke White is a musician and a mother of two. She has recorded eight albums with a ninth coming out in early 2019.  Brooke got her “big break” when she appeared in season 7 of American Idol and finished in the Top 5. In the midst of this success, when the world saw a beautiful young woman with talent and fame, Brooke faced debilitating anxiety and fears that she wasn’t good enough.

In our conversation today, we discuss…

  • how Brooke faced harsh criticism in a very public review in a LA music magazine (she reads it aloud on this episode!)
  • how Brooke made a big mistake in front of 40 million viewers on American Idol
  • how Brooke survived those moments, and many others that have come before and after, and has continued to pursue music with a self-confidence rooted in love, faith, and gratitude

In this episode, Brooke and I laugh, we tell stories, and yes, we sing.  Well, Brooke does. 😉 You don’t want to miss this truly unique and inspiring episode of 3 in 30.

035: Modeling for our Children How to Endure with Hope // Ralphie Jacobs of Simply on Purpose and her father, Bob Peters

Modeling for our Children How to Endure Life's Trials with Hope Ralphie Jacobs and Bob Peters

How do we stay positive when we face incomprehensible trials?  How do we endure well and allow our struggles to soften and strengthen us?  And perhaps most importantly, how do we model this kind of resilience for our children?

Today on the podcast, Ralphie Jacobs, the respected parenting expert from Simply on Purpose, talks about her heroic father who, as a father of nine children, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when Ralphie was five years old.  He lost the ability to walk by the time Ralphie was ten, and he has endured MS for over 30 years.

This interview is especially meaningful because Ralphie’s father joins us on the call.  Ralphie wanted him to hear her tribute to him and to add his own thoughts to the discussion–and it is a truly tender and touching conversation between a beloved father and “his girl.”

I felt honored to be apart of this sacred conversation, and I know you will feel the same after you listen.  You will come away braver, more determined to stay positive, and completely inspired to invest in your children when they are young–so you can have rich relationships with them that last a lifetime.
