Today my guest is the truly extraordinary, Emily Norton. You might have seen the videos of her husband walking across the stage at his college graduation or walking down the aisle to his bride, following a football injury that left him in a wheelchair. My conversation with Emily literally left me with goosebumps as she shared her journey with meeting her husband and helping him rehab to be able to walk those few precious steps. She shares about growing their lives together, fostering 17 kids and adopting 5, all before she turned 26. She also has a new book out, releasing today called “The Seven Longest Yards.” You are going to love hearing from Emily today and she’ll remind you the power of single “yes” in your life.

Today my guest is military spouse, Erin Low. If I’ve learned anything from our military experience, it’s that when your spouse is in the military, the whole family is in the military. Erin is not only the spouse of military dentist, living all around the world, but also an extraordinary mom! We chat about her military experience, moving to Japan, her parenting philosophy and more! It’s an awesome chat and I just wanted to take a minute to thank all the families who have dedicated their lives to serving our country. It’s a sacrifice we do not take for granted and I wish you a very Happy 4th of July!

Today I have a very special guest, my son Austin. Austin is a first grader, who experienced a lot of anxiety and separation struggles last year after we moved to a new city mid-year. It was his idea to want to share his experience with getting through that challenging time, because he knows there’s lots of other kids experiencing the same thing. And I’ll also share my own experience with helping him through that challenging time.

Today my guest is amazing Paige Flamm. When she found out her daughter had special needs, she wondered what life would look like… could they still travel and be outdoors like they once enjoyed? Could they still have a social life? Would she know how to “positive parent” her in the same way she did her son? Because she decided that her daughter and her family’s potential did not have to be limited by a diagnosis or label, they set out to enjoy the world! With some adaptations and determination, she shares today how their family is thriving and living life to the fullest. Love her message so much. Can’t wait for you to hear from Paige.
