Lately for some reason I feel like the concept of a “cafeteria plan” of the gospel of Jesus Christ keeps coming up in my life. So is that even a thing? What does that even mean? Is it something we subscribe to? Neil and I dive deep into this and use some scriptural references and quotations by people far wiser than we are to talk about where we stand with all of this. We also give some examples from our own lives of obedience and blessings.

On Monday, August 23, Jeffrey R Holland, an apostle of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, spoke to the faculty at BYU and addressed the topic of marriage, sexual orientation, and avoiding divisiveness instead of being a “house divided.” Today, we talk with Melinda Welch, a certified life coach, an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and a mother of five children. She also has two gay sons, a lesbian sister, many bi, gay and lesbian cousins and transgender frie
If you have kids, and especially if you have kids who are nearing double digit age (like us!) then you’ve probably asked yourself, “When DO we want to give our kids a phone? When is the best time?” Well even though Neil and I would like to stick with “never,” we know it’s an inevitable crossroad, so today I’m sitting down with Bill Brady, CEO and founder Troomi Wireless, to talk alllll about the nitty gritty of giving kids phones and most importantly, how to do it safely.
I love to read, and one of the books I started reading this year (after hearing many business people rave about it) was Radical Candor. This book has some GREAT lessons and takeaways, and in trying to implement the number one takeaway in the book, I felt like I really failed. Today I’m sharing what I think I did right, but mostly where I went wrong, who helped me to see the situation more clearly and most importantly, how to do better next time.
Kristin Andrus is a mom to 6, exercise maniac, lover and creator of healthy recipes, married to the owner of Traeger Grills, Jeremy Andrus, and a total inspiration to me. Kristin has a passion for philanthropy, but in today's podcast she shares her strong feelings about how money is the actual most insignificant part of philanthropic work and that it's your TIME and attention that will really create long-lasting relationships and opportunities to grow and help others thrive.
Think back to the last time that you had something go TOTALLY differently than you had pictured it in your mind. What were your feelings when things went this way? Were you disappointed? Frustrated? Resentful? Today Neil and I are talking about expectations and why Neil says they’re “resentments in the making,” and what we try to do instead to offset these results and find more happiness in life.
My parents, Grant and Si Foster (who is also known for her blog, a bountiful kitchen) just returned from an 18-month mission to Spain, Barcelona where they taught, led and counseled with and mentored young adults in our church. I really wanted to ask them in detail about their mission and what they learned and experienced and how they got through the pandemic while truly locked down inside their little apartment.
Last week we experienced what I believe to be miracles, as we watched our little two-year-old Millie go from being her happy self to being one very sick little kid who was in the hospital for 5 days. Many many people prayed for Millie and today we’re diving into how prayer played a part in all of this, whether we change the outcome ourselves by praying, or if it’s just up to God, and if it is - what the point is of praying, and whether it really works.
Okay be honest just for a second with yourself. Have you ever been in a situation when you’ve asked yourself, “Wait, what’s in it for me?” I think if we’re being honest we ALL have at one time or another. Today Neil and are discussing selfishness and why it so easily plagues our lives, and the antithesis: selflessness. We share some of the examples we’ve had in our lives of selflessness along with some deeply inspiring stories of sacrifice that I’m almost certain will leave you wanting to be b
In 2020, Chris and Melissa Smith started the podcast and website Family Brand, to help families figure out what they want to stand for and be remembered by. Having a family brand is a way to strengthen your family. Since then, they’ve taken dozens of families through their training that helps families identify core values they want to create a family brand around, and how to make their family brand not just inspirational but transformational.
This week, I was asked to teach a lesson to the young women in my church congregation (ages 11-18) about pornography – specifically, “how can I resist pornography.” I knew that this topic could potentially impact so many of the teenage girls listening, and I felt a huge weight of responsibility to prepare well and most of all, plead with the Lord to have the spirit with me and that He would direct me in what to teach and how to teach this effectively.
Almost 10 years ago, Katie Parker founded Singers Company, a place where little girls can sing, dance, and act in a wholesome environment while building confidence and performance skills. Katie recognized the staggering statistics of declining teen confidence and self-worth that were plaguing our nation, so she decided to start the I Believe in Me project, an online-based program for girls 11 years of age and older.
Do you have any regrets in life? Have you ever asked yourself this, or the people you love? This is a great topic that a lot of people may or may not have even thought about. But it's something that probably most people will have to deal with at some point in their life.
