    As moms, the best thing we can do is open our hearts to know and love our people well, understanding it's a journey that takes patience, faith, a solid support system, a whole of prayer.

We know women make a huge difference in the family unit (and lots of other places too, but we're going to focus this episode here.)

    Flourish Episode #23 - Fully Known and Truly Loved

    26/04/2017 Duración: 30min

    Are you ever in a group or in a conversation still feeling alone? Or perhaps not deeply connected? Do you experience existing with others, versus connecting with them? Could conversation be the key?  Sometimes it’s easy to just exchange topical conversations, keep it safe and not offer any real authenticity or challenge. But we know that also doesn’t draw us closer to one another either. It can be so easy to feel lonely even when with others sometimes. Can you relate? In this episode, Flourish hosts Emily and Erin model having a deep conversation that reveals values and helps us to build deeper connection and friendship. It's in better knowing someone that we can better love them. We hope you'll take the time to listen and try it for yourselves too!

    31/01/2017 Duración: 39min

    In a fast-paced world where bigger is better and second place can feel like last place, so many of us find ourselves striving, working and trying so darn hard, we're simply exhausting ourselves. We may be looking to get ahead, or maybe were looking for approval. Is it even possible to simply look for contentment? In this very special episode, Flourish hosts Emily and Erin beg the question if it's possible to stop trying so hard. Special guest, author and speaker, Jennie Allen joins Emily for an in-dept interview about her IF Gatherings, her latest book, "Nothing To Prove" and what she's learned through life and her process of writing. (She learned a lot....enough to RE-write the book just prior to the deadline!!)

  • Episode #16 - Affirming our Children

    Episode #16 - Affirming our Children

    13/12/2016 Duración: 40min

    It seems like, as parents, we spend a lot of time saying "No." We explain all the things our kids can't do, the things they can't have, why some things aren't good for them and why boundaries and limits are for their best. We reason through it all, and there likely are GREAT reasons for all the NOs, but do we spend enough time affirming our kids? Wouldn't it be nice to put a focus and intention on the yeses, the positives and the "do more of thats"? Growing up in today's age is hard enough, and kids lose hope if they feel they're doing everything wrong. Parents often lead them to this thinking, with constant correction, perfectionist attitudes and idealistic goals. We need to remember that kids are still learning, and we need to encourage them as they make mistakes. Kids with no encouragement and no hope will feel defeated and like failures. They'll feel like they can't ever do anything right, and it will affect their effort, esteem and outlook. In this episode, Flourish hosts Emily and Erin discuss several w

    "If you want to find joy, you must first find thankfulness." ~Abraham Lincoln Have you ever thought about the power of thankfulness? Could it really impact your attitude, joy or even the quality of your life? In this episode, Emily and Erin take on the topic of "Radical Gratitude" - not just having good manners or momentary thankfulness...but a new mindset, a shift, a discipline of gratitude that is greater than our current set of circumstances.  Sharing specific tips and disciplines that listeners can use to attain and maintain this mindset, the Flourish hosts encourage women to get the most joy out of life. Tune in and join Emily and Erin on The Flourish Facebook page too!

    12/10/2016 Duración: 32min

    As we enter Fall, there’s a shift to “harvest time.” Falling leaves, pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, and farmers reaping the benefits of what they’ve sown. We can use this metaphor for life and for achieving the goals we want for ourselves. Are we planting the right things?  How can we nurture the seeds of our crop? Is it time to harvest? In this episode, Emily and Erin pull from their coaching experience to help guide listeners to succeed in their goals and priorities.

  • Flourish - Episode #13: Why Read the Bible?

    Flourish - Episode #13: "Why Read the Bible?"

    27/09/2016 Duración: 40min

    Do you believe the Bible has spiritual power and in some way is actually alive? Is that silly to say? Flourish hosts Emily and Erin get personal in this episode, where they each share their experiences with the Bible and how it has changed for them over the years. In addition, they discuss how to make sure reading it becomes a spiritual experience that has application (and not just a check the box religious thing,) as well as where the heck to start reading it. Is there a better place to start? Is it not the very first page? We believe there is a correlation between studying and integrating scripture into our lives and flourishing! We all need an owners manual, a compass and a love letter from God. We encourage you to listen and give the Bible a chance to transform your life. Come visit our Facebook page if you have further questions or would like to be encouraged further. We'd love to see you there!

  • Flourish Episode #11 - Because Women Need Each Other

    Flourish Episode #11 - Because Women Need Each Other

    24/08/2016 Duración: 35min

    "It's high time we step out of our same-age, same-stage silos. Life is so much better that way." ~ Sophie Hudson This episode's discussion was spurred on and inspired by the book, "Giddy Up, Eunice: Because Women Need Each Other." Emily and Erin discuss the following: * What prevents us from having deep, meaningful relationships? * When someone, particularly from a different generation seems VERY different than we see ourselves, how can we notice our similarities first and use them to draw us together? * Where and how can women find younger women, and how can we encourage them? * What makes someone a good mentor? * One favorite book quote is "when the Holy Spirit in one woman recognizes and responds to the Holy Spirit in another woman, safe places become SACRED places." What does it mean to you? Call to action: Pause, reflect on the people in your life/paths and consider who you might be able to reach out to - whether older, younger or walking alongside you. How can you encourage and strengthen another woman?

    Flourish Episode #10 - The Value of Play

    10/08/2016 Duración: 34min

    Play is defined as purposeless activity that's fun and pleasurable....but is it really purposeless...or does play have more value than we give it credit? Flourish hosts, Emily and Erin discuss both the importance and value of allowing ourselves some time to play - with our kids, in our marriages and just for ourselves. Is play something that we've forgotten how to do as adults? What are some benefits of play? Does God value play? What are some things you can do to incorporate play into your busy schedule? You just might find that it's not only FUN, but it's worth it!! Pleas join us on our Facebook page for more discussion and past episodes.

    26/07/2016 Duración: 47min

    “The Superwoman is a good person, duty-oriented, very responsible and truly desires to do what is right. Often, she feels powerless to do anything about these demand 'enemies.' She may feel guilty, overwhelmed, and inadequate. She carries a giant load in life and frequently goes day-to-day in a semi-depressed state due to her burdens. She is also unhappy about her situation. She does not know how to lighten her load and may secretly resent others who have been able to escape these personal demands." Can we do it all? SHOULD we do it all? What toll is it taking on us and/or the people who love us? In this episode, Flourish hosts, Emily and Erin discuss the "Superwoman Syndrome." Yes, it's so prevalent, there's a name for it now! Do you struggle with feeling the need to do it all or to do it perfectly? How can we manage the balance between having ideals and expectations for life, but also giving ourselves grace? How can we "take off the cape" and encourage other women to do so as well? Listen in and be encourag

    Flourish Episode #08 - Miracles

    05/07/2016 Duración: 47min

    A miracle is defined as a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency. Have you ever experienced one? (Give that some thought...) In this episode, Flourish hosts Emily and Erin discuss the topic of Miracles, with a very special guest interview featuring Christy Beam, the real life mom who was portrayed by Jennifer Garner in the movie, Miracles from Heaven. We begin by talking about the value of and need for good content and family-friendly programming. Do you think it matters? Then, Erin has the opportunity to chat with Christy Beam about her family's true and miraculous story. Christy is so sweet and authentic - you're going to love her! She shares why she released this story to the public, how she has been impacted, how her daughter Annabelle is doing today and what's she's expectant for in the future, plus more. This episode, like the movie, is filled with hope, anchored by faith. We hope you enjoy and conti

    "You are never too old to set another goal or dream another dream." ~ C.S. Lewis Flourish hosts, Emily and Erin unpack the complexities of reinventing yourself -- not changing who you are, but allowing yourself to flex different muscles during different seasons of life. How can we gain clarity around what we want? How do we make changes with deliberation and foresight? How has God equipped us? What the ONE WORD we should remove from our vocabulary?
