It’s that time again for another crossover episode with my good friend, Melanie Dale. And if you are new to the show and haven’t heard one of these episodes you are in for a treat! Each month, Melanie and I sit down and have a conversation about a topic that we are both surviving and that we could lighten up about. So one part is here and the part of the conversation is on her show, Lighten Up with Melanie Dale. So be sure to hop over there when are you are finished listening to this one.

This month we are talking about going back to school. Can you believe summer is over??? We talk about our favorite grades growing up, being our kid’s advocate at school, tips on how to relate to your kids’ teachers in non-overbearing ways, how we handle homework and first day of school traditions.

I am so excited to welcome Heather MacFadyen to the show today. You likely know her from the God Centered Mom podcast. She’s been hosting that show for 5 years! If you don’t know her already, she’s a mom to 4 boys. We talk about fears that we have and how fear is the root problem to other emotions we have like anger; we talk about guilt and shame in motherhood and what to do when shame is driving your identity.

I am so excited to share this conversation with you. Dr. Caroline Leaf sat down across the virtual kitchen table with me a few months ago. She is a is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist. Since the early 1980s she has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input. She has helped hundreds of thousands of students and adults learn how to use their mind to detox and grow their brain to succeed in every area of their lives, including school, university and the workplace.

Her passion is to help people see the power of the mind to change the brain, and to see the link between science and spirituality through controlling their thoughts and emotions, learning how to think and learn, and finding their sense of purpose in life. 

You guys I was so nervous to talk with her because she is just so very smart. I felt like I would be out of my league, but Dr. Leaf is truly delightful. And as we talk, its evident that she has a huge heart for people to have hope and life change. Did you know that when we as Jesus followers talk about taking thoughts captive that science actually backs that up? What we talk about over the next 30 minutes is fascinating. We talk about the connection between science and faith, how you have the power to turn on your brain in order to get rid of toxins, the science behind captivating your thoughts, how to change your mind and how to help our kids learn to change their thought patterns. I loved this episode and hope you do, too.

Katie Bennett joins me today. She is a wife and mom of three with one on the way. She and her husband have a podcast called “Embracing a Simpler Life in Light of Eternity” and she recently published the book Heavenly Minded Mom. We sit down and have a conversation around the idea of what it means to embrace a heavenly perspective, how God used a really hard season of life to help propel her faith forward and some practical ways to gain perspective.

I sat down with Rebekah Hargraves back in the early spring. She is a mom of two little kids, podcaster and author. Our worlds became very small when we realized that she got married at my parents event space in Tennessee. Is that funny? Rebekah joins me to talk about lies that we tend to believe as mothers, mommy guilt and how she overcomes the temptation to allow her identity to be defined by her ability to mother.
