Episode 74: “How do I release the burden of feeling responsible to protect my siblings from the struggles and challenges of life?” In this episode, I coach Dakota and address the question, “How do I release the burden of feeling responsible to protect my siblings from the
Q: “How do we prioritize giving of ourselves versus staying close to our own immediate needs when experiencing grief?” You can give when you have it to give. A client of mine had a hard time saying no to requests coming towards her. She was dealing with trauma, depression,
The goal of forgiveness isn’t for you to forget what happened to you. You’re always going to remember what happened; it shaped you in ways that are difficult and ways that are positive. Forgiving is about you letting go of the resentment. It doesn’t mean you ever have to
One of the most commonly quoted and seemingly often-misinterpreted scriptures regarding perfection is this one: “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” (Matt. 5:48). We tend to interpret the word perfect as flawless. But the Greek word f
Regarding the AP News Article on Sexual Abuse & how LDS officials let it happen
When a kid's needs aren’t met (or if we were a kid whose needs weren’t met), the child will often blame themselves for their need not being met. It can sound like: “Oh it must be me! I must be the reason I didn’t get that need met.” Because we needed our parents to be
Part of maturity is disappointing your parents. It’s about letting go of trying to control how they see you. When it comes to faith transitions, if you are a good person (which I’m sure you are!), they will come around to see you as a good person. You just have to trust that
Episode 73: “How can I stop overthinking about things in the future that are out of my control?” In this episode, I coach Kirsten and address the question, “How can I stop overthinking about things in the future that are out of my control?” Kirsten finds herself constant
I’ve noticed a really important misconception that people have about anger. In the LDS culture we don’t separate angry feelings and angry behaviors. We collapse them into one thing. Angry feelings are justified when you have been wronged. They motivate you to seek justice.
Modesty is a loaded term (particularly within an LDS context). It can refer to one’s attitude, disposition, and, as is most commonly thought of, to one’s clothing. As someone who believes in the teachings of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, I value and heed the counsel we
“How do I talk to my kids about messages about girls clothing affecting boys’ thoughts that we get in our culture at church?” If someone else feels like they can’t control themselves based on what you’re wearing, that’s their problem, not yours. You don’t consent t
“How do mothers navigate or become comfortable in the 'in-between' space while raising LGBTQ+ kids?” I don’t know if the goal is to get comfortable. Instead it is the practice of holding paradox, contradiction, and things that don’t fit together. It takes practice. It mi
Episode 72: “How can I let go of mom guilt and create more partnership in my family?” In this episode, I coach entrepreneur and influencer Rachel Parcell (@rachparcell), owner of rachelparcell.com, and address the question “How can I let go of mom guilt and create more par
“How do we get away from equating one’s commitment to garments to one’s commitment to God?” It is not anyone else’s place to judge anyone else’s commitment. It’s your place to judge your own commitment, and how you manifest your own commitment. I am so tired of e
How do I unlearn that I am responsible for others' emotions but still considerate towards others feelings? Where to start? Some of the unlearning has to do with self talk. Reminding yourself what is and isn't your responsibility. “This is not my job to fix!” Empathy is cons
I spent a large part of my life experiencing this guilt and insecurity myself regarding motherhood. And maybe even more-so having grown up in a conservative religion, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My church clings to traditional gender roles, so I’ve had to
What did you want to be when you grew up? A doctor? A lawyer? A scientist? A teacher? When my kindergarten teacher asked me this, I said, "I want to be a mommy." And I painted a kindergarten-worthy picture of me as a mommy with a baby. I’ve spent the past 31 years raising
Women have always worked, paid & unpaid. Whether it’s in their home working or in society working, this has always been a world where women work. We should stop dividing families in roles of which kind of work for women is acceptable. #drjuliehanks #motherhoodisarelationship #

How can I express my own emotions without putting them on others? One important piece of expressing your emotions is to learn how to self regulate your emotions. Learn how to self soothe, so when you express them you’re not dumping your emotions onto other people because there
