Marriage Killers

Marriage Killers – Part 1 (Extreme Words)
There are common pitfalls in marriage that trip us up. 
Some of them are complicated, but some of them are just plain dumb. 
The words we use to make our point can destroy relationships. 
Too often, one person will make a statement that derails the whole point of the conversation and next thing we know there’s an argument about whether some particular wrongdoing happened on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning. We’ve missed the point, and now we’re arguing about semantics. How about you never use these statements again ever? Well, try.
My husband is always angry.
My wife never spends time with me.
He literally ignores me.
She hates me.
I’ve just given up.

The great news is, with just a few tweaks to your verbiage you can make a huge difference in your marriage. Start noticing the words you speak today!

Making Time For Yourself

Making Time For Yourself with Lisa Marie Fletcher
(While Homeschooling)

This week on our podcast we have a special guest Lisa Marie Fletcher. Lisa Marie Fletcher is a homeschooling mom of 5 kids ranging from preschool to high school. When her homeschooling journey began, she searched for Canadian homeschooling resources and started to share them online. That was the beginning of The Canadian Homeschooler – whose mission today is to connect homeschoolers across Canada with each other and with resources to help them on their journey. As a homeschooling mom her best advice is to lower the bar.
Whether you homeschool or not, she has some great tools to help you carve time into your day for your dreams, successes, and so much more. There are ways to make your dreams come true while homeschooling, or while being the best mom you can be. 
Lisa knows it’s hard to find time to fit everything in you need. Which is why she has written a great book and created an online FREE homeschooling conference.  Both are in formats for the busy mom’s we all are.

Commit to Your Health

I’d always wanted to be healthy, but I could never be successful long term. I’d have a few good days but I could never maintain it. I’d keep my morning routine for a few days and then fall apart. I’d lose weight but then gain it all back. It wasn’t until I turned 40 that it worked. If I reflect on it, the difference was that I COMMITTED to the goal.
