Podcast episode #10: Small is My New Free with Emily Freeman

Yep, it’s a double feature—we get Emily twice this week! In this podcast episode, my friend Emily Freeman and I chat about the release of her latest book, Simply Tuesday: Small-Moment Living in a Fast-Moving World. And as you might guess, this book is totally. up. my. alley.

In this episode, we talk about feeling held hostage by hustle, why making soup is so important, and why small really is the new free. This is my favorite book of hers yet because it speaks a message I so readily applaud: that it’s in the small moments where we truly live, and that when we embrace where we are in the here and now, letting go of the obsession to make ourselves bigger, better, faster, and more productive, we’ll find true life.

Plus? She’s just fun to chat with. One of my favorite people.

A new book released this summer—just a few weeks ago, in fact, and it’s easily one of the most beautifully-written, haunting memoirs I’ve read in a long while. And it’s not just because a friend of mine wrote it. This is a book filled with words and sentences threaded together to weave a tapestry of (read more…)

Podcast Episode #8: Put on your Brave Pants, with Sarah Mackenzie

I love meeting homeschooling women who don’t have their act together, nor do they pretend. Sarah Mackenzie is one of those—and I love that the stuff she writes and talks about is inspiring for non-homeschooling families as well. She’s all about talking about basic stuff, reminding us that those things can go a long way (read more…)

Podcast Episode #2: The Fringe Hours with Jessica Turner

I can’t think of a better guest to inaugurate this new podcast than Jessica Turner, my friend and author of The Fringe Hours. (Confused about the new show? Head here to listen to the first episode.) A couple times a year I get asked if I know of any blogs written by women who work (read more…)

Podcast Episode #1: Wait… What?

I know, I know—this seems out of nowhere. Starting over with a new podcast? Why, you’ve only been doing the other one for four years now. Well, here I am, doing a brand new podcast. Why? Well, to be honest, it’s a pretty boring reason, mostly having to do with glitches and zipzorps and what-not. (read more…)
