Finding Joy and Happiness in the Midst of Motherhood

Lauren Fire talks about the tender subject of finding joy and happiness in the midst of motherhood. This was a fun interview and Lauren of inspiringmama.com has a lot of great information and practical advice.

Since recording this interview I’d encourage you to check out her show on mom dating. (After you’ve listening to this show you’ll see how that show follows on. I was nodding through that too. )

Connecting with your child without opening your mouth

Connecting with your child without opening your mouth

 

One of my favourite early pictures of my son is this one.

Our kids come in stereo surround sound and our homes can often be full of sound and activity.

We don’t have to connect with our children only through sound. Using non verbal communication is powerful, useful and comforting in many situations.

There’s an affiliate link in this post.

It rescues us when we have a little voice.  When we need to share privately but in public. When we need to be quiet but communicate from a distance. When we need some quiet and stillness. When we need a change of mood. When we need a focus change.

Today I’m exploring 9 ways we can communicate with our children without opening our mouth.

Exploring the Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World with Tsh

Exploring the art of living intentionally

 

My guest today is a traveller so it’s hard to say where she’ll be when you listen to the show. When we recorded the show Tsh author and blogger of The Art of Simple.net was living with her family in Oregon. As the show is published I believe the whole family are travelling around the world and are in Africa.When you listen- who knows?  How cool is that!

We’re not talking about her worldwide travel with a family- yet! Instead we’re talking about being intentional whether we’re on the road travelling or at home.

Our conversation is inspired by her book: Notes from a blue bike.

The things we talk about really impact our family atmosphere.

 

During the interview Tsh shares

  • how she creates boundaries around time online?
  • how to maintain friendships around intentional living when you’re living in different places?
  • the value of routines when you travel
  • of the surprises about raising her children overseas?
  • examples about the way you play after living somewhere else?
  • Some excellent advice when you’ve had this excellent idea and how you bring it home to your loved ones and bring it up!
  • when to act after you’ve had aha moments. Do you wait or do you move quickly?
  •  a few things she’s done to put family first that’s strengthened her marriage and relationship with her husband.
