    "At any given point, you can say, 'This is not how the story is going to end.'"
    Cate Johnson was a mother of two young children with a big, beautiful home in the country.  From the outside, it looked like she was "living the dream," but inside, she felt like she was drowning.
    She craved peace and connection with her children--but instead she felt only chaos and overwhelm. She spent hours cleaning her big home while her kids watched television. She felt heartbroken that she was not the mother that she had always wanted to be.
    In this powerful episode, Cate shares three small but significant changes that transformed their home environment:
    1) Using the five senses to create a haven of peace.
    2) Designating a "kid of the day" to eliminate fighting.
    3) Structuring their family time around rhythms to create stability.
    Cate is now a fulfilled, empowered mother, and she has a message of hope for all of us: We can have more peaceful homes, no matter where we live.
