I know this is not news to anyone, but…caring for our marriages is SO IMPORTANT (and not always easy)! Which is why I’m so excited to share three ways to improve your marriage today. I had the opportunity to attend “An Evening with the Gottmans” date night in October, and I decided to do a followup Zoom call to discuss my takeaways with anyone from my email list who wanted to join. I included a worksheet for fill out during the call to make this as actionable as possible because, as I’ve mentioned before, we all know that marriage gets put on the back burner way too often. This week’s episode on 3 in 30 is a replay of that Zoom call, so you can ALL participate! >>Click HERE to download the worksheet if you want to fill it out as you listen or after you listen!

If you’re anything like me, you sometimes realize with surprise that you’ve entered a different (and easier) phase of motherhood.  You didn’t even notice it slowly shifting. But you suddenly realize that your babies have started sleeping longer stretches at night. Or, they have really learned to put their shoes on by themselves. Or they are beside you helping prepare their lunch for school the next day. (What the heck??) Transitions like these are often very subtle. But when we take a moment to reflect on it, sometimes it feels like a miracle that we made it to where we are, doesn’t it? I am in a new season of motherhood and have been reminiscing on what life was like when I had two very young, spirited children, and I wanted to share three articles I wrote for the website Power of Moms during this rewarding but equally trying season of my life. I hope that these reflections are helpful for the moms of littles.  Or for whatever season you’re in that sometimes feels a little (or a lot) blurry: My Articles on Power of Moms -The first article is called, “The Best Year of My Life?” -The second article is called “It Is What It Is.” -The third article is called “How My Son’s Routine Chart Makes Me a Better Mom.”  Check out all of my articles from Power of Moms, many of which were written during naptimes while I was in the midst of parenting littles, here: https://powerofmoms.com/author/rachel-nielson/ And don’t forget, I want to hear YOUR three takeaways this week as we finish up celebrating the second birthday of 3 in 30! Visit 3in30podcast.com/birthday for more details, or scroll through the hashtag on Instagram for a good dose of inspiration and a reminder that we all have unique wisdom to share.

“The quickest way for anyone to reach the sun and the light of day is not to run west chasing after the sun, but to head east, plunging into the darkness until one comes to the sunrise.” -Jerry L. Sittser National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day was October 15th, and I wanted to honor this sacred day by dedicating an episode to mothers who walk through life with a piece of their heart and soul missing. If this is you, I hope that today’s episode on how to move through grief might offer some comfort. Today’s guest is Anna Packard, a mother of four who lost her infant son Charlie when he was four months old. She also has a PhD in clinical psychology and is a therapist at Balance Health and Healing, so she has both personal and professional experience in how to move through grief toward joy after immense loss. How to Move Through Grief * Remember, the only way out is through: practice willingness, prioritize self-care (which includes finding a support group of other mothers who have lost children), and allow all emotions. What we resist, persists. * Look for beauty, gifts, and meaning along the way. Assigning your own meaning to your experience can be a powerful step toward healing. * Remember that you are stronger than you realize. (This is very hard to hear in the early stages of grief, but you will find that it is true with time.)

As moms, we often wrestle with the desire to find a better balance for work and motherhood. We want to honor our professional lives and personal development, while also giving our children the love and care they deserve. But what if it isn’t really about “balance” after all? Crystalee Beck, co-founder of The Mama Ladder, is here to shift our perspectives by teaching us that both work and motherhood are valuable parts of living our purpose. We can find ways to protect time for both so we can be “powerfully present” in whatever we are doing. Key Takeaways on Finding Work Life Balance from Crystalee: 1. Release the need to be balanced and feel like you have to devote the same amount of time and energy to work and kids. 2. Protect time for the areas that matter to you. 3. Put your ideal week on repeat: it minimizes decision fatigue and guilt in motherhood. **Many thanks to The Mama Ladder for sponsoring 3 in 30 Podcast this month!!** For information on The Mama Ladder’s 6-month business accelerator program for mom-entrepreneurs, please visit 3in30podcast.com/mamapower.

How comfortable are you talking about race? Up until recently, I have NOT been comfortable talking about this topic because I recognized how uninformed and privileged I am–and that made me feel a little ashamed. Because this topic matters. SO MUCH. It’s really common when we realize we’re uneducated in certain areas to stay quiet–because if we open our mouths and start learning and asking questions, we might say something that is offensive or hurts someone. But staying quiet is not the answer: Answers come from seeking learning and asking for help. That is why I invited Dr. Lucretia Berry on the podcast to teach us. Dr Berry is the founder of Brownicity— Many Hues, One Humanity, an agency dedicated to advocacy, education, and support for racial healing and anti racism. She has dedicated her life to developing and teaching anti racism curriculum to college and high school students, adults through ministry and online, and of course within her own home as the mother of three beautiful daughters. In this episode, Dr. Berry teaches us how to talk to our kids about skin tone and race through these three takeaways: How to Talk to Your Kids About Skin Tone with Brownicity * Reject the colorblind approach as a solution to racism. * Normalize conversations about skin tone and race with your children so they can consciously, fluently, and confidently navigate our hyper-racialized society. *  Invest in an anti race/ism education to gain understanding (e.g. books, classes, podcasts, teachers, not informal discussions).

In 3 simple stages, we guide you through fundamental understanding to practicing transformative change in your spheres of influence. Visit brownicity.com/learn for more information.

Today is the second in our series of episodes titled “You Are Your Child’s Most Important Teacher.”  Dina Alexander is a mother of three teenagers and the founder of Educate and Empower Kids, which is an incredible resource for those “difficult conversations” we all need and want to have with our kids, but we’re just not sure where to start. On this week’s episode, Dina is teaching us how to talk to our kids about pornography. I am so grateful for her expertise and confidence on this topic. This is a heavy, intimidating topic for me to cover. I want to be so careful with what I put out there on this topic because I know it’s triggering for people who have experienced this within their families, and I know there are a lot of different opinions on the best ways to handle the topic of pornography when talking to your kids. If anything, I hope the episode gets you thinking and gets you talking with people you trust about how you want to handle this topic within your home. How to Educate and Empower Kids About Pornography Dina’s three takeaways for talking to your kids about pornography: * Define pornography for your kids and discuss possible places your child may be exposed. * With your child, create a plan when they are confronted with porn (what will they say and do? how will they tell you what they’ve seen?) * In conjunction with talking about pornography, you must talk about its opposite: Healthy sexual intimacy.

Most of us had some experiences or people in our childhoods that left a heavy mark.  Making today’s topic on how to let go of hard stuff so important. Sometimes we minimize these difficult moments because “it could have been worse.” But no matter what you faced growing up, we all need to process our experiences from childhood and examine how they’ve shaped us. I was raised in a loving home with amazing parents, but a lot of my early years were spent worrying about my mom as she battled breast cancer for thirteen years; and then passed away when I was nineteen. This experience impacted me more than I ever realized until I went to counseling years later. In this interview with Monica Packer of About Progress, I share the breakthroughs I had in counseling and three tools that taught me how to “let go” of hard stuff and move forward into healing: How to Let Go * Write letters (that you never have to send!) to process experiences or feelings that are burdening you. * Think back to those activities and passions you loved as a child, and do them again. * Envision yourself as a child and give yourself the grace, comfort and protection that you would a child in your life. I hope this episode prompts some deep-thinking and deep-healing in your own life. Show Notes **Tickets for my final in-person workshop of 2019 are on sale TODAY!

People are often amazed by just how close my sisters and I are to my dad. Our mom passed away when we were teenagers, so Dad planned our weddings, comes to help us after we have babies, and talks to us frequently about our lives. I truly believe that the small but meaningful ways my dad bonded with us when we were young made all the difference when we lost our mom; we already had a solid relationship with him that has since blossomed into something truly beautiful and unique. If you want a rock solid, life-long bond with your children, here are three easy ways that I learned from my dad: * Play with them. Rely on small but consistent & memorable traditions. * Talk with them. Show them you welcome and can handle their questions, and schedule regular times to check-in. * Feel with them. Sit with them in their disappointments and their fears without trying to fix it. Show Notes I have teamed up with one of my dear friends, Monica Packer, who is the host of About Progress to launch Podcast University. It is an online school for all things podcasting, and we want to help you start or grow a podcast! Our first course Podcasting 101  is open for enrollment through the end of June. You can also take part in one of our FREE classes this month: 3 Things You Must Know Before You Start a Podcast. There’s still time to fill out my demographic survey!

There’s no question that parenting has been difficult for every generation– but has it always been this difficult? I’ll admit, my dreams of parenthood were idealized in many ways, but I often wonder if the day will ever come that my children actually stay in their seats at dinner long enough for good conversation and connection. I wonder if their big emotions and high energy will continue to affect our everyday lives, or if we will be able to have memorable outings that don’t require quite so much emotional energy with managing expectations and refereeing. Katherine Reynolds Lewis,  an award-winning journalist and certified parent educator, had the same questions as she raised her own strong-willed children. The more she looked around at other parents and children, the more she realized that she wasn’t alone–kids today just seemed to be harder, even though parents devote more time and energy to their children than in any other generation. This seeming epidemic of strong-willed kids with difficult behavior is the reason that she embarked on writing her book, The Good News About Bad Behavior– Why Kids Are Less Disciplined Than Ever and What to Do About It. After years of incredibly detailed research, Katherine found there are three overarching reasons why  kids today have less ability to regulate their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors: * The decline in unstructured play and outdoor time. * The growth of media and technology . * The increased focus on achievement and performance, instead of character and contribution. In this episode, Katherine unpacks each of these areas and gives suggestions for what we as modern parents can do about it. And don’t forget to come back next week for part two of this super interesting discussion!

They say love is patient; love is kind. But the truth is, sometimes it's not EASY for love to be either of those things, especially when you are facing a devastating betrayal. Mika Perry—a mother, blogger, and professional organizer—has been there. In 2012 she discovered that her husband, Russ, was having an affair. Over the years since, she and Russ have worked toward healing and now openly share their story to help those suffering in silence.

In this stage of my life, I start most days to the sound of my children calling for me or running into my room. Before that, I started the day with the sound of my alarm clock signaling I needed to hurry as fast as I possibly could to get ready for work. This often sets the pace to go from one thing to the next in a frazzled state when I am constantly craving slow. Crystal Paine, entrepreneur, mom, and founder of Money Saving Mom, is often asked how she does what she does, and it all comes down to starting her day with intention.
