Time keeps on ticking and somehow keeps speeding up as it passes into the future. There is no way to slow it down, make it stop, or even rewind. None of us know how much time we have in this life. In this week’s podcast, Bethany shares the importance of cherishing each moment, living in adventure, and embracing new experiences along our journey.
Somebody looks at us funny, ignores our ‘hello’, or doesn’t text or call us back and we instantly assume the worst. We start making up a story full of lies about what happened because we're hurt, without taking the time to get to the source of truth. All these assumptions can lead to gossip, rumors, and ultimately broken relationships. In this week’s podcast, Bethany talks about how to stop making an ass-u-me (ass out of you and me).
If we were to pause, we would probably find that there are many moments throughout our day that bring us joy.

Teen life can be filled with so much drama. They face so many challenges to belong and be accepted by their peers, while trying to figure out and develop healthy friendships.

In this week’s podcast, Bethany talks about how to create a drama and bully free zone starting at home with your teens.

When we set out with good intentions to reach our goals, we never prepare ourselves for those moments we just want to quit and throw in the towel! But, if we can press in to the discomfort, the inconvenience, the hard work, the challenge, and lean into our support system, we can accomplish anything we set out to do. In this week’s podcast, Bethany shares the joy of accomplishing her goal in podcasting and the challenge to not quit!
