Hey everyone! Today is a great one for all you foodies or moms wanting a little reset on your eating routine. I love Sam's tag line- you can't eat clean without getting dirty!
If you think about it, most convenient food isn't messy. We gravitate to fast food and easy meals to prevent further work in the kitchen. Raise your hand if you've ever ordered in just because you CANNOT do another dish. My hand is up.
I love stories that include someone finding silver lining in a hard situation. Sam had major digestive issues for most of her life, and as she got to the bottom of what was causing it, she developed a way to eat. And it hasn't only benefited her, but those around her and anyone who wants to take advantage of her research and planning!

Beth is one of my favorite people, who I met on....yep, you guessed it- Periscope! I owe my entire life as it exists now to that amazing platform!
Beth and I met in real life less than a year ago at a blogger conference and I kind of wanted to stick to her like glue. She was the real deal, a salt of the earth honest to goodness person. I admired her and everything she stood for- and still do!
What I first knew about Beth was her incredible cake making skills. She'd prop us up in her kitchen as she live streamed while baking and mixing and frosting all kind of treats. She also shared stories about her kids, her challenges and her testimony of God and her faith. I am honored to be able to share in even more depth, her story that has touched my life.
This is truly one of the most marvelous moms I know and I'm so proud to call her my friend!
Thank you Beth for being brave enough to share it all and inspire so many with your words!
Melanie is one of those girls who you talk to an instantly feel at ease. She gets motherhood- you know? Really gets it. She is so fun to follow on Instagram because she has these adorable perfect dimples, and four kids who are just as cute! She and I chatted a lot about motherhood and what it looks like today. The expectations, the highs and lows, all of it. She sees this journey for what it is- a sanctifying process that really makes us amazing. She also shares how she's realized the power of magnifying and sharing our talents- not only for our children but for ourselves. As we continue to grow as women, we have so much to share and offer to our children and to the world. I loved everything about this episode, and am so happy to share it with you all!
PJ is the mother of 8 children that are all homeschooled and help run the family business. They work on a goat farm that produces amazing products from the goat milk they have in excess. PJ transitioned to a natural and organic life for her kids and wanted to feed raw goat milk to her children. The very act of having the animals added to their homeschool experience and family environment. Realizing the goat milk could be used for more than just consumption, PJ started down a path that has completely changed her life!
What began as having a few dairy goats turned into a full fledged million dollar business that ships goat milk based products all over the country!
I loved how she talked about opportunity cost and the value of doing things you should be doing can sacrifice time spent on something actually worthwhile or beneficial! So many nuggets of info here, and that was one that especially stood out.
Listen to her episode to hear the whole story! It was so great to chat with PJ about her life. She was kind enough to offer a free soap for all my listeners! Head to GOAT MILK STUFF to get yours!
Thank you PJ for being a marvelous mom and for sharing your story with all of us! It was so inspiring and fun to listen to!
Today you're going to hear a slightly different episode! I let the amazing Whippycake (remember her from episode 79?) interview ME on the podcast!
In honor of International Women's Day I was really excited to share more about my own story as a mompreneur business owner! I love sharing stories of my guests and have been asked a lot lately to share more of my own background and what a day in the life is like for me!
So sit back and relax and enjoy the fun twist on today's episode! Thank you Whippy for being an amazing host!!
