favorite moments from dear daughters podcast | season 1

In case you missed any episodes of the Dear Daughters Podcast, I’ll be sharing my highlight reel of the first season with you this summer. This is part 2 of 4 (you can see part 1 here) and once again, I was amazed at the wisdom these guests brought us.

Here are the highlights from episodes 8 – 16 :)

  • I was so tickled to have dear daughter, brand consultant and graphic designer Chloe Hamaker join me for DD episode 8. Her story about her relationship with her dad and the dark time she walked through just days before her wedding was at once devastating and beautiful. And on a whole other note, her info about how to hashtag more effectively: Hashtag 101 #yay

  • So many moments from DD episode 9 make me smile. Shauna Niequist is a mama, writer, and fellow table person. I love the way she talks about simplicity and slow living + her caesar salad recipe + this question: “What would it take to leave behind the things that no longer serve you well in order to get to the heart of how you were made and how you were made to live?” 
  • Carolyn Dixon is a wife, counselor, and mama of 4 grown boys and many dear daughters. The ‘iceberg’ conversation still helps me to understand difficult people and situations. And also appreciate those four questions she gave us for when you need to see a counselor on DD episode 10.
  • Lisa Whittle was ever the firecracker on DD episode 11. I’m still thinking about our conversation about When It’s Time for a Social Media Break. One of the telltale signs: When social media takes up so much energy that you’re too weary to spend time with the people you love the most.
  • I had Lauren Gaige join me for DD episode 12, where we talked about our cross-generational friendship, Lauren’s tips for starting and growing your own business, and our favorite products and programs that make admin for your small business more efficient. Lauren also shared a free printable for her Goal Sharing Worksheet!
  • DD episode 13 with Lana Rush was full of joy and wisdom and an extensive book list, possibly the longest of season 1. Lana shared about life raising three daughters, one of whom has special needs, and  how she and her husband face those challenges differently. Her advice to her 20 year old self? Wear the shorts. I know you’ll just love her…
  • This quote is one of the things that most frequently comes to mind from my interview with Dr. Ashley Stafford in  DD episode 16. We talked a lot about shame and what it can teach us about ourselves if we will pay attention.

Be back in a couple weeks with more favorites. Hope you’re enjoying your summer!
