Season 2 – Episode 8: Lael Couper Jepson of SheChanges

A refreshing chat with Lael Couper Jepson – founder of SheChanges – former Fortune 500 consultant turned coach, author, speaker, and facilitator of community events and intimate gatherings for the sort of women who aren’t to be trifled with.

**TRIGGER WARNING** Miscarriage and pregnancy loss is discussed…Along with the most unexpected answer to my standard starting question, the important roles our kids play as witnesses to our creative declarations, early motherhood as an opportunity to just BE (and marinate), the beauty of using the voice we were BORN with, creating unique offerings for people who normally wouldn’t consider such offerings (and that it’s ok if you’re not everyone’s cup of tea), following the soul’s path (vs. what we’re “good” at), discernment despite the noise of social media, designing a life around service (to others, and ourselves) and honoring our own cycles and seasons, and how to get out of our own way when starting a new creative project.

Season 2 – Episode 7: Hannah Lamprey – founder of Fourth Trimester Collective

A chat of #realtalk solidarity with Hannah Lamprey, founder of Fourth Trimester Collective, an online provider guide and interactive calendar of events for Maine mothers to find support and connection in all aspects of their wellness.

We discuss mom-brains requiring new systems, making mom friends (IRL and on IG), realizing it’s OK to feel ALL the feels of motherhood (and that everyone else is feeling the feels too), the problem with not giving women the REAL story on “what to expect,” the isolation of early motherhood (and the resulting negative effects to our mental health), the contrasting beautiful relief of honest conversation (shout out to the moms sharing their truth!), navigating our own healing through big ideas that come from a place of service, and a call to arms for more support for the people who raise the people!

PLUS: Hannah and I both hint at what’s in store for Fourth Trimester Collective and Who’s Your Mama

Season 2 – Episode 6: Sarah MacLaughlin, LSW –– author, speaker, and parenting educator

A human chat with heart with Sarah MacLaughlin, LSW – parenting educator, speaker, and author of the books What Not to Say: Tools for Talking to Young Children and the forthcoming Raising Humans with Heart: Not a How-To Manual.

We discuss the fastest way to choose to have an only, tall boys who eat all the things, hard truths of writing a parenting book before kids, holding ourselves to our highest standards in order to grow, accidental mindfulness, the creativity of parenthood, how support for parents and families continues to be a woefully missing piece in today’s society, opening the doors for the creativity fairy (no matter if you believe what you’re doing is creative or not), the necessity of unpacking our own history (and providing the reparenting to ourselves that we may have missed out on) in order to bring our best selves to our families, and a reminder that although there are many tools for you out there…YOU know your kids best – and you are doing a great job!

Season 2 – Episode 5: Marteen Santerre – Reiki master and meditation teacher, business owner and entrepreneur, community connector, and champion of empowered whole body health

An authentic chat with Marteen Santerre – Reiki master and meditation teacher, business owner and entrepreneur, community connector, and champion of empowered whole body health.

We discuss the glory of a mid-day nap and a good book, the universe mocking us with the mirror that is our own children, the joy of identifying a larger problem and creating from there, technology as the networking solution for complementary healthcare practitioners, moms talking about real feelings, taking care of (and control of) our own health as a form of self-care (and as an example for our kids), realizing that how we spend our time = our priorities, practical tips for making and taking time for ourselves, and the importance of moms sharing parenting hacks with each other (because we’re all in this together!).

Season 2 – Episode 4: Noelle Libby, farm lady, rescue mom, photographer, crafty maker-of-things, homeschooler, and just a generally badass wild soul mama

A woods-witchy chat with Noelle Libby, farm lady, rescue mom, photographer, crafty maker-of-things, homeschooler, and just a generally badass wild soul mama.

We discuss hiding from our children (in trucks…or barns with witchy goats), tiny house living for chickens, accidental homesteading and sustainable families, adventures in homeschooling, fighting SAHM boredom with creative outlets, making creativity work FOR you (so you don’t have to work for someone else), not knowing what you’re doing (but doing it anyway), the magic of creative flow when it’s “on”…but also respecting when it’s not, and focusing on what feels good.

Season 2 – Episode 3: Lindsay Torrey, baker extraordinaire and cookie decoratrix, all around crafty lady, and one of those “outdoorsy moms.”

A mouth-watering chat with Lindsay Torrey, baker extraordinaire and cookie decoratrix, all around crafty lady, and one of those “outdoorsy moms” that I aspire to be.

In which we discuss the artists’ compulsion to make ALL THE THINGS yourself, the truth that yes you really do suck at first (but you DO get better!), how someone else’s faith in your abilities can light your spark, the cult cookie scene of Portland (ME), pregnant women addicted to sweet/salty treats, creative journeys taking WAY longer than expected, the great side-hustle debate continues (sometimes it’s the goal, sometimes it’s not – AND THAT’S OK!), a pep-talk for “indoorsy” types on how getting the kids outside actually makes parenting easier, the constant marination of the artists’ brain, and digging out from our hoarder piles of “potential” craft supplies.

Season 2 – Episode 2: Denise Moriba, bookstore owner and writer on her own “heroine’s journey” of creative motherhood.

DeniseMoriba-podcastAn expansive chat with Denise Moriba – bookstore owner and writer on her own “heroine’s journey” of creative motherhood.

In which we discuss tiny dictators, the culture shock of your own diversity, masters programs that expect creativity to be quantifiable, country living allowing space (and the ability to scale back), the eternal struggle of when to let hobbies be hobbies (and when to wear all the hats), tuning in to what feels good, more books to add to your never-ending Amazon wish list, and what can be learned from initiations through culture/history/mythology (and how this can be translated to better welcoming women into motherhood) – just some light, airy topics up in here!
