All the Mom Things Podcast
Amanda Bacon & Anne-Renee Gumley
Wouldn’t it be great if we could focus on one thing each month that would help us mother from a place of strength instead of overwhelm? One thing we can remember when we don’t know what to do or where to turn? All the Mom Things hopes to deliver just that. On the 1st Wednesday of each month, Anne-Renee Gumley and Amanda Bacon will bring a fresh focus to our lives as moms. Each time you listen, we hope you’ll come away refreshed and renewed, ready for whatever you might face. Won’t you join us?
31: Am I the Same Mom Everywhere?
Raise your hand if you’re ready to jump into a bit of a tricky topic. Okay… so we might not feel totally ready to chat about this, but it’s a new month, it’s almost a new season, so today we’re going to talk about who we are in all the places. Who we are at home. At work. At the grocery store. At church. Are we the same person with our people inside our own homes as we are in front of others? Listen in to this month's conversation on All the Mom Things!

30: Pause on Purpose
In this month’s short episode, we’re talking about taking a break from some of the things in our normal life and routine. There’s a time and season for everything, so let’s chat about taking a short break this summer from some of the things we ALWAYS do, and maybe, just maybe we’ll come back refreshed.

29: Am I a Controlling Mom?
This time, we’re talking about control and mothering. Because moms are responsible for an awful lot of things, right?! And since we are in charge of so much (think diapers, snacks, water bottles, and extra clothes for the child that refuses to stay clean), sometimes the responsibility juggle can evolve into some rather, well, controlling behaviors. (Gulp.) So instead of ignoring it, let's talk about it. Thanks for listening to this month's episode of All the Mom Things podcast!

27: I Wish I Wasn't So Distracted
It’s hard to believe that almost 2 years has passed since our book, SHINY THINGS: Mothering on Purpose in a World of Distractions, made its way out into the world! In some ways it feels like yesterday … and in other ways, it feels like a lifetime ago. So we thought today might be a good day for a little recap — giving you an inside peek into what has happened since our book came out, and where we are in our distraction journey in the right here, right now.

26. When Rest Feels Out of Reach
Today we’re talking about REST. And after the frenzied, yet slowed down year we’ve all walked through, some of us moms are needing some serious rest. But we don’t always know what that means, what it could look like for us, and how in the world we could pull that off when life looks like it does. So… let’s talk about it!

25. Is Having Perfectly Behaved Kids the Goal?
We're pretty sure we can all agree that as moms — well as humans for that matter — we like to see RESULTS. We forget that motherhood is more like a marathon … a long haul race. So today we’re going to talk about not just behavioral change, but the real, true heart change we’d like to see in the lives of our kids. Thanks for taking the time to listen in and join in the conversation!

23: All the Good Things
Being a critic comes much easier for most of us than taking the time and the discipline to sift through hard things and find the good. Because it’s easy to see the negative, right? So as we come to the end of 2020, we thought we’d assemble our own list (not a complete list), but start a list of good things that would encourage our hearts and hopefully encourage yours as well. Happy listening, dear friends. And happy New Year!
