Page of Our Lives - Ep. 18 - Season One Recap
Friends, we launched this podcast dream with little more than an idea and a couple of microphones. Now, 20 episodes later, we’re wrapping up our first season. On today’s show we take a minute to recap all the lessons we’ve learned along the way. From how we get out of a funk to pursuing our dreams to the importance of rest, we’ve shared a page from our own lives and introduced you to some amazing friends. We will be back in October with new episodes, so until then we would love for you to share the show with your friends and leave us a rating in your podcast player.

Page of Our Lives - Ep. 17 - Soul Care for Weary Parents
We know parenting is not for the weak. It takes our whole physical, mental, spiritual and emotional selves to parent well, not to mention having eyes in the back of our heads. But what are we to do when we are worn out from parenting? On today’s show, we talk with Kelli Wild, a family therapist who is passionate about helping weary moms and dads find rest for their souls. As Kelli puts it, “Parental burnout is a real thing. And when it sets in, it can affect the whole family.” As parents, we can’t afford to ignore our needs forever. That’s why today’s show is so important. For more information about Kelli, visit http://www.kelliwild.com Show notes and more available at http://www.pageofourlivespodcast.com

Page of Our Lives - Ep. 13 - How to Keep Going When You Wake Up to Crap
Today we wrap up our series on pursuing our dreams by asking ourselves - as people who are working hard to make dreams a reality, what do we do when we wake up to crap? I apologize if you’re somebody who doesn’t like that word, but let’s be honest...sometimes it feels like it keeps dropping no matter how hard we’re working to keep life cleaned up and moving forward. We had started our conversation off air and soon realized it might be something you’d want to hear, so we hit record a few minutes into our discussion. But don’t worry...we saved the good, the bad and the stinky for you. If you keep waking up to crap, We hope that this page from our lives might be the encouragement you need to scoop it up and keep going.
