The Seedpod-cast

By Jessica Croker
Welcome to the Seedpod-cast! I'm Jessica Croker-- a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a wife, homeschooling mom of 6, registered yoga teacher, health coach, meditator, and mindfulness junkie.This is the place where we spend some time together deepening self-awareness, understanding our deepest needs, and designing habits that lead to lives of contentment, compassion, curiosity, creativity, and connection. Grab a load of laundry to fold, head out for a walk, or run an errand while you listen, ponder, and reach toward growing into your infinite potential. We'll be great friends before we know it!
