Create more meaning in Motherhood

A 30-minute podcast with 3 doable takeaways
to make your family life a little better each week


Hi, I'm Rachel

Lover of practical ideas, conversations with kindred spirits, and my two wild children who keep life interesting.  I combined all of these passions when I created 3 in 30, a podcast for moms who want doable takeaways to try with their families - strategies to help us manage the madness and maximize the magic of motherhood.

Before I had my kids, I was a camp counselor for kids with disabilities, a volunteer in an orphanage in El Salvador, and a high school English teacher. Then my husband and I struggled with infertility and went through the adoption process and IVF to get our two miracle babies.

After all of my experiences working with children, and after my long fight to become a mother, I truly believed that I would thrive as a mom from day one.

Let's just say my transition to motherhood was a little rougher than I had imagined...

3 in 30 Podcast
I could not drag this little girl out of bed to get dressed for school the other day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I had asked her five times, and when I was about to get angry, I thought of this week’s episode with @simplyonpurpose. I decided to try one of the “games” that Ralphie described to get some positive momentum going.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀“Sally, I am going to close my eyes and picture what I think you are going to choose to wear to school today. I will keep my eyes closed the whole time, and when you’re all ready, I will tell you what I think you’re wearing. Then I will open my eyes—and we will see if I am right!”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀A smile slowly spread across Sal’s face, and she jumped up to start getting ready so we could play the game.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Magic, I tell you! Magic!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀(As a side note, do you know who learns the most from the amazing guests on 3 in 30 episodes?? ME.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀What games do YOU use in your house to get positive behavioral momentum going??⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀And if you haven’t listened to this week’s episode about 3 Secrets to Help Your Kids Behave Well, you must!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#flecksofgoldfriday ...
