Each month I re-release an older episode of Surviving Sarah and I decided to re-release my conversation with Rachel Stafford for December. You may know her as the Hands Free Mama. She is a best selling author penning the books Hands Free Mama, Hands Free Life and Only Love Today.
 
Rachel is one of those people who have been influential in my life—even without her knowing it. I can remember reading her blog back when Sinclair was about 2 or 3 years old and her words were such an encouragement to me. And now we live close to each other and she has been gracious to give me some of her time for morning walks to talk about life, faith, parenting and writing. I think she is such an amazing woman.
 
I chose to put this episode back in your ears because we are standing at the cusp of a new year and I think this conversation will set you up for 2019. This conversation originally took place on the cusp of 2017 and what we discussed greatly impacted me. And I still reference what we talked about often and practice the phrases that we said on a near daily basis.  If you want to be the best you that you can be, then this episode is a must listen.

Here we are, the week before Christmas and the last episode for 2018. And I can’t think of a better conversation than this one to leave you with this year. Paige Knudsen joins me around my table. She is one of those women that is further down the road from where I am so I lapped up this conversation like a puppy. She has been married nearly 20 years and they have 4 daughters between the ages of 17-25.

But Paige became a widow when she was 30 years old with 3 girls under the age of 3. In this conversation, she shares her journey. She talks about the importance to remember how God has shown up in the past and what that journey of loss was like. This episode is chocked full of goodness—of wisdom, encouragement and hope. I know you are going to enjoy it. So pull up a chair to my table and join the conversation.

Tricia Goyer joins me today and I have been anxiously awaiting the day that I could share this episode because I found it to be so helpful to me as a parent. Not only is Tricia the author to 70 books (yes you heard that right), but she is also the mom to 10 kids (you also heard that right). When she and her husband were on the verge of being empty nesters with 3 kids, they decided to start over. They have adopted 7 kids and some through adoption via foster care.

If anyone has the experience to talk about parenting, it is Tricia. I invited Tricia to the show to talk about her latest book, Calming Angry KidsThis is a topic that so many of us struggle with—it is often what makes parenting so hard. We talk about how trauma is connected to why some kids are angry, how to not take your child’s anger personally, tools to help calm your child and how to calm yourself when you feel your temperature rising.

Kimberly Stuart joins me today and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation. She is the author of 8 novels, including her most recent book, Heart Land. Her books have been featured in Cosmopolitan, Huff Post and the Chicago Sun-Times. She has a passion to write chemistry-driven, smart romance. 

I knew from the initial email she sent me that she would be the kind of person I would enjoy chatting with and the kind of author I would enjoy reading. In this episode, we talk about the loss of the rom com, our favorite rom com stories, the challenges of writing romantic novels and why it’s important to read fiction.
