Favorite quotes:

1. I think once we start to really see ourselves as just a human, or our spouses as human, and our kids as humans, we start to recognize our individual strengths and weaknesses and we’re not trying so hard to create little super beings that they’re not going to be. There’s a whole lot of rest and peace and purpose that comes from that!

2. A feeling is just a feeling, it’s not in charge of you.

3. We have to first name and recognize what we’re feeling in order to gain control of it so it doesn’t get to control us.

4. Are we creating an environment that is emotionally safe? Meaning that emotions are talked about and that starts with us. Are we modeling emotions?



In this episode I answer these questions:

1. How can I get my kids to do chores? They’re 6 and 8. (47:54)

2. What is your take on the law of attraction? (51:46)
