040: How to Adventure as a Family // Chamaine Wollenzein of ‘Wandering Families’

How to Adventure as a Family Chamaine Wollenzein of 'Wandering Families'

Are you an adventuring family or a stay-at-home-and-get-stuff-done family?  I sometimes fall into the latter category (I love my to-do lists!), but whenever I muster up the energy to take my children on an adventure, I never regret it.  We seem to grow closer to each other and make more lasting memories when we discover the world together.

On today’s episode, Chamaine Wallenzein, the found of Wandering Families and a mother of five young children, gives us practical tips and tricks for how and why to adventure with our families.

And if you’re not a hiker or camper, don’t worry–this episode is still for you!  Chamaine and I discuss how an adventure is any type of shared experience that is out of the ordinary–and you can totally tailor that according to your family culture!

Listen in to this wise and spunky mama, and be inspired to build in more opportunities for connection and memories with your family!

Great Quotes from the Episode

-“The natural world seems to invite and facilitate parent-child connection and sensitive interactions. Unplugging and taking a baby away from electronic distractions creates an opportunity for what is called ‘affective sharing’ – oohing and aahing together over the sun shining through the leaves of a big tree…feeling a soft spring rain or a light winter snowfall on your face.”  Martha Farrell Erickson

-“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder…he [or she] needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share, rediscovering the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.”  Rachel Carson

037: Teaching Children to Work Without Being a Drill Sergeant // Danielle Porter

Teaching Children to Work Without Being a Drill Sergeant Danielle Porter

Danielle Porter and I have been friends for about six years, ever since I started working with the organization, Power of Moms.  During that time, I have seen her go from a mother of three young children to a mother of six young children (her oldest is about eleven), and I have admired how fully she has committed herself to learning how to be the best mother she can be.  Danielle is truly deliberate about every decision she makes in her home, and she has tried out many systems and strategies over the years. I benefit from hearing her advice as her family and her wisdom grows, and today she is going to share some of that with us on the podcast!

I asked her to teach us how to teach our children to work–and I was honestly surprised by her takeaways.  But her words also resonated as truth in my heart and reminded me that a little love, patience, and perspective goes a long way.  Listen to this wise mama’s words, and let me know what you think

036: Momming Like a Boss: Using Corporate Leadership Strategies in Our Homes // Whitney Archibald of ‘How She Moms’

Momming Like a Boss :: Whitney Archibald of 'How She Moms'

When Whitney Archibald started working as a magazine editor after college, she naturally excelled in this leadership role.  She effectively managed her team, created clear objectives for their work, and maintained focus and excellence in her responsibilities.

When she was pregnant with her third baby, she decided to start staying home full-time with her children–and one day she looked around her chaotic home and realized that she was not excelling in this “second career” in her life.  Determined to make a change, she started putting as much commitment into learning how to manage her home as she had put into learning how to manage her responsibilities at work.

She discovered that many of the same strategies that she had applied in her business life could be applied in this new phase of her life–and today on the podcast she is sharing those strategies with us!

Listen in to find out how you can take small but meaningful steps towards “Momming Like a Boss” and managing your home and family more effectively and with more confidence.
