What do you do when you’re in a hard season?

When you’re under pressure, there are three things you need to stay connected to in order to come through it. If you’re in a hard place right now, I need you to focus on these three things only. Everything else can fall apart if it needs to, but these are your lifelines… this is what will get you to the other side eventually.

You need to stay connected to

Otherwise, you could end up sabotaging yourself. 
Nothing is worth hurting your relationships, and it’s never too late for your comeback moment.

I’ve received so many great questions about how to get started teaching kids responsibility that I created another podcast to help you! 
Some feedback from parents:
“It’s easy to get overwhelmed and not know where to start, but now I finally have a rough plan. I know it will look differently for each of my kids, but at least I can make sure we get some great life skills started.”
“I wish I knew more when I left home. So it’s encouraging to know that by teaching them some of these skills I’m helping my kids be successful when they head out into the world!”
And
“My kids are pretty little right now, and I always thought I would teach them when they were older. But after listening to the podcast I realize there’s lots I can do right now, and if I follow her guidelines they’ll be ready when they graduate.” 
If you like the idea of having your family work together but don’t know where to start, I’ve got you!

Teaching Kids Responsibility: Part 1

There are so many good reasons kids should have to help out the family with regular work around the house. Learning how to do things you don’t want to do is a fundamental skill for life success! Character qualities like self control and time management are developed when kids are lovingly guided to learn hard work and responsibility, and we want our kids to feel confident when they eventually launch into the world. Diligence and responsibility are only learned by doing, so start implementing daily chores now!

The Three Lies


The Three Lies
And What To Do About Them

Think of a situation where you took something personally: Did you overreact, yell at your kids, or become offended at your spouse? 
Our consistent actions always follow our heart, not our logic.
Our behavior stems from our core beliefs, and if you believe a lie in your heart it will be impossible to make lasting change in our lives. 

Which lie do you believe?
I’m worthless
I’m helpless
I’m unloveable

Learn how these lies affect our relationships and how to remove them. Your freedom is worth it!

Raising Resilient Kids


Raising Resilient Kids

When kids face adversity, they can react with anger, tears, or just shut down completely.
Often, our own frustration doesn’t help either! Our kids already know what it feels like to fail. They need to learn resilience. Learn how to reduce the emotions and break down projects into achievable tasks. With your help, your kids can do hard things and overcome failure.

Do your kids struggle to stay focused? Do they get overwhelmed easily and shut down, or erupt into anger? What’s at the root of this? Usually, it’s fear. Fear of not being able to understand the math, or fear that they’ll never learn to read, or fear that they’ll fail the test. Fear of missing out, or fear of not being good enough. What if I’m a failure? I’ll never get it right!
We need to make sure we aren’t fueling the negative thought loops that are likely replaying over and over in your child’s mind. 

Next, look for patterns. Does this happen every time you ask them to clean their room? Every time they’re playing video games and you tell them it’s time to do their spelling homework? A certain time of day? By finding patterns, you can get ahead of it and really prepare yourself to be that calm positive coach your child needs. 

Break it down into management chunks of time. Telling yourself to clean out an entire bedroom is overwhelming. Instead, coaching yourself to work for a short amount of time feels so much more possible. Use this same method with kids. Decide on an amount of time that will work for them- ten minutes maybe?- and encourage them to work on the project for just that time. Then, praise the effort and perhaps reward with a small incentive. Then start again with the small time chunk until the task is completed. Use fun rewards or prizes to help the change stick. 

If it doesn’t go well, create a safe cool down location for your child to take a break until he is calm. When ready, back to the time block! Thirty minutes of math homework could be completed easily in three ten minute time blocks. More importantly, though, is that your child is developing resilience every time she practices starting and completing a hard thing. Each time, she is reminding herself that she is brave, and that she can accomplish great things as long as she doesn’t give up. You can help your kids develop resiliency to succeed in life!
