Hey Dad... Can You Talk?

Hey Dad... Can You Talk?

By Toby Slough & Bailey Garner

A podcast convo between Bailey Garner and Toby Slough, a daughter and her dad, where they talk about real stuff, hard stuff, the stuff no one else wants to talk about and funny stuff too! "Stuff" includes parenting, relationships, community, mental wellness and more. We are so thankful you're here to listen and we pray that the Lord uses the special relationship that Toby and Bailey share along with their casual but heartfelt conversations to encourage you and to help you know that you're not alone in your struggles.

36 | Isolation - Not Alone
36 | Isolation - Not Alone
Isolation makes us vulnerable. It is in isolation, lies overcome our reality. Telling us we are broken. Not good enough. We are the only ones who feel this way. That isn’t true. And if you are battling for your mental wellness, you are #NotAlone. The holiday season can be some of the most isolating times for people who are battling for their mental wellness. Even the most connected people, with seemingly robust social lives and networks feel alone in this battle. This is why Goby Ministries has created the Not Alone Campaign. #NotAlone is a call to action to commit to not letting isolation win. Whether that is for you or for somebody you know. Today me and Dad talk about the campaign, why this is so important to us and ways you can get involved. Dad discusses isolation and ways that we can set out of isolation as well as help others around us feel not alone. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed with life, raise your hand. Speak up, speak out and engage in the conversation. Because one of the most effective interventions for loneliness is intentional connection. Help us build a community that can believe together, we can take one more step, one more breath and give one more word of encouragement. We are #NotAlone. Text Not Alone to 940-329-5049 for connection and community and share the number with others! Click here for everything you need to know about Not Alone!

All smiles for today's episode! Today Dad and I talk about intentionally celebrating and making memories as a family. When you're raising kids- whether they are young, teens, or grown- things can feel heavy and hard at times. That is why it is so important to take time to encourage and celebrate one another. It takes intentionality but today Dad gives great wisdom on this topic. Today's convo will lift your spirits and maybe even make you want to go out and buy some whipped cream!

23 | Hey Dad... Let's Talk About Comparison
As I scroll any app this time of the year, first day of school pictures and newly decorated dorm rooms fill my feed. It’s really easy to look at the bright smiles, new outfits, and brand new bedding and assume that everyone else has their life together. On today’s episode we chat about the comparison trap - how we can recognize it in ourselves and ways to fight it. You aren’t the only one who battles this- so many other parents do too. Comparison can slowly chip away at our mental health but there is an alternative! Press play and listen as Dad shares ways to flip the script and change our mindset for the better. And when we are the healthiest versions of ourselves, we are prepared to help our kids be their healthiest version too!

22 | Hey Dad… Let’s Talk About Intentional Community
The beginning of the school year usually means schedules get busier. Between extra curricular activities and homework, there isn’t much time left for anything else. It’s easy, as parents, to put our heads down and do what needs to be done on our checklist. Get the kids to school, go to work, pick the kids up, cook dinner, fix lunches, read books, do bedtime, and everything else that comes between! So how as parents are we supposed to be intentional with our relationships? We talk often on the podcast about the importance of community but how do we do that amidst our busy schedules? Today I ask Dad that very question! Press play and listen to what he has to say. We are glad to have you back! Thanks for listening! -Bailey and Toby SHOW NOTES: Click here and download a plethora of back to school resources that our Goby team has created just for you!

Throughout the month of June we will be re-airing some of our greatest hits from season one! Today's episode is a re-air of episode 13! Today we have a VERY special guest and her name is... Mom. Just kidding, her name is Mika, but she is Mom to me. She is wife and best friend to Toby and Honey to her grandkids. She is loved by so many and I am elated that our podcast family (that's you!) is getting the chance to glean from this woman's wisdom. Up until this point, Dad has shared a lot about his journey with panic attacks and anxiety. But it has not only been a journey for him, it has also been a journey for my Mom, too. Today she shares her story. She shares how she felt when he first admitted he was struggling, who was her source of comfort, what she has learned along the way, and so much more. This is a side to the story that we don't often get to hear, so lean in and listen close. Oh and also grab some tissues, because I think you'll probably want a few on hand for this episode. Don't forget to also share with someone you know would benefit from listening. There's power in a "me too" moment and we want others to know they're not alone as they love and support someone else who is struggling.

Throughout the month of June we will be re-airing some of our greatest hits from season one! Today's episode is a re-air of episode 8! In a world full of filtered photos and targeted ads, how can we really see ourselves how God sees us? We are prone to look in the mirror and just see what everyone else sees- to see the things we think are wrong or the things we think need fixing. And then, how do we even begin to help our kids with this same thing, if we struggle with it as adults? Press play and listen in while Bailey and Toby discuss this very topic. I think you will realize that you aren't alone and God sees you just as He made you - as His masterpiece. SHOW NOTES: Scripture References: Psalm 121:1-2, Ephesians 2:10 Watch the podcast on youtube!

15 | Hey Dad… Let’s Talk About Tragedy
When tragedy strikes, in any form, how as parents should we handle it? What do we say to our kids? For me it is easy to freeze up and say nothing because I am unsure of what to do. For others, you may handle it differently. Just a day or two before this episode was recorded, the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas took place. Press play and listen as I talk to Dad candidly about how to stay mentally healthy during times of tragedy.

14 | Hey Dad... Let's Talk About the Transition to Summer
As we move into the summer, a new season brings fun and excitement! But these types of transitions can also bring about changes that may feel overwhelming or just unknown. In this candid conversation, I talk to Dad about the expectations and pressures I feel as a mom when it comes to summer and how I don't always know how to handle them. To be honest, we recorded this on the first day of summer when all of my kids were home and it made recording a podcast pretty interesting. So you just might hear from a tiny surprise guest! The honest conversation I have with Dad today may include some things that you also feel, but you're nervous to admit or tell someone about. If change is something that tends to affect your mental health or just overwhelms you in general, I hope you listen today and know you aren't alone.

What about a teenager who is about to take on new responsibilities- a job, a move to college, etc- and yet they just don't seem to be themselves? Maybe you keep these "irrational" fears, which seem very rational in the moment, locked up inside and actually don't know where to go from here? Maybe you feel like you're the only one. Well, you aren't. Press play and listen while Dad and I discuss this very real struggle that many of us have as we continue our conversation surrounding Mental Health Awareness month.  SHOW NOTES: Are you more of a visual person?

10 | Hey Dad… Let’s Talk About Seeing Others the Way God Sees Them
If we don’t feel worthy of God’s love, of God’s generosity-if we don’t see ourselves the way God sees us, we will never be able to see others the way He sees them. And treating others the way God treats us is really what it’s all about, wouldn’t you agree? It’s the Golden Rule and most people would say “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  But what does that mean for you and me? How can we live out the Golden Rule in our everyday lives? And how can we model this for the kids in our life? Today I call Dad to talk about this topic and I know you're going to want to press play asap!  SHOW NOTES: Are you more of a visual person?

08 | Hey Dad... Let's Talk About Seeing Ourselves the Way God Sees Us
In a world full of filtered photos and targeted ads, how can we really see ourselves how God sees us? We are prone to look in the mirror and just see what everyone else sees- to see the things we think are wrong or the things we think need fixing. And then, how do we even begin to help our kids with this same thing, if we struggle with it as adults? Press play and listen in while Bailey and Toby discuss this very topic. I think you will realize that you aren't alone and God sees you just as He made you - as His masterpiece.

Does your world feel a little heavy? We know the feeling. We have experienced moments where we've felt like somebody should get a 15-yard penalty for piling on. If you are a church leader, your families are feeling it-and if you are a parent or a teacher-your kids are feeling it. Join us as we talk about this very topic- feeling overwhelmed when things that are out of our control seem to be spiraling around us. We don't believe, not even for a second, that we were created to feel overwhelmed by the world. There is something we can do about it, and God wants to help us along the way. Let's talk about what that looks like practically in our lives, the lives of our kids and the lives of those around us.
