Playing full out—living a more fully engaged, confident, joyful and  fulfilling life – EDEM ep. 40 with Rita Hyland

Playing full out—living a more fully engaged, confident, joyful and fulfilling life – EDEM ep. 40 with Rita Hyland

What if the story in our own head, that drives the choices we make day-to-day isn’t serving us or is even against us? How could asking different questions begin to shift that storyline: What am I supposed to see and learn here instead of dwelling in 'why me'?  How is this actually working for me right now instead of focusing only on what's not working?  Can I find the humor in the craziness of this, knowing that nobody said it was going to be perfect all the time? How would life be different…continue reading →

Finding joy in helping others, overcoming doubt by doing good, and looking inward instead of outward for answers – EDEM ep. 35 with Donna Marie Post

It’s natural to feel doubt in parenting, work, and life. We all do. What matters is what we do with it, how we redirect it and believe in ourselves again. Meet Donna Marie Post, a mother of one, who shed a part of her old self when she became a mom. It was a part of her she wasn't proud of, that was judgmental and unkind. It was a bully inside her own self—a voice many of us can relate to and none of us want our children to experience. She started following her…continue reading →

Becoming more conscious of our time and choices, and creating balance and fulfillment as a whole person – EDEM ep. 27 with Karli Kujawa Smith

In the busyness of our days, we can sometimes feel like life is just happening to us but really we are shaping our lives by the choices we make everyday.

Feeling worthy, taking care of ourselves, and feeling happy now through gratefulness – EDEM ep. 25 with Kristy DeJesus

Feeling worthy, taking care of ourselves, and feeling happy now through gratefulness – EDEM ep. 25 with Kristy DeJesus

Nobody has it all figured out when it comes to parenting. Too often we put a mask up that everything is rosy when it's not what we are really feeling. We all experience the inevitable ups and downs so we do so why do so many of us feel we can't be truthful about how we are really feeling?  If we're holding on to negative or fearful feelings, covering them up doesn't make them go away. We have to bring awareness to those feelings to change them and make room for all there…continue reading →

Sharing parenting responsibilities, Making time for the right things – EDEM ep. 17 with Heather Rosales

Sharing parenting responsibilities, Making time for the right things – EDEM ep. 17 with Heather Rosales

One thing they don’t really teach us when we become parents is how is how to share all of the parenting responsibilities and make time for the right things. When one thing is off-kilter—whether its time for ourself, our spouse, or our children—it takes away from our enjoyment of all the other things and prevents us from achieving that life balance we desire. Meet Heather Rosales, a full-time working mother of two boys, who has found that healthy balance through creating routines, consistently following them, and learning to communicate well with her spouse. Heather blocks…continue reading →

Rushing less and relaxing more through mealtimes, potty training, and life—EDEM Story with Jess Bedsole

She changed her tone, her language, and her expectations with her son and now he listens and responds better. The shift came from reading oh crap! potty training. She did potty train but more importantly—she uncovered a simple way to relax and it positively changed their relationship. She still faces challenges—especially with balancing her time and energy evenly among her toddler and new baby. She’s beginning to let go of that feeling that success with one means failure with the other. This comes from a shift in perspective. She starts every morning and ends every night with…continue reading →
