108. How to Love Someone You Disagree With
Recently, on Instagram, I got asked the following question, "How do you handle friendships and disrespect in this political turmoil and pandemic." I shared the slide above to answer it, but I had so many more thoughts swirling in my head as I wrote the answer that I realized it would be the perfect topic to tackle more in-depth in a podcast episode. So this week on the podcast, Jesse and I share what we have learned and are learning about how to love someone you disagree with and how not to ruin relationships because of differing opinions. In addition, we talk about new recipes Jesse is trying using duck, granola and Greek yogurt, wearing real PJs, my habit tracker, a book I loved recently, a funny story about mispronouncing words, and what Jesse has been reading. In This Episode: [01:47] Duck poppers are saving Jesse’s life this week. They were so good! [05:38] Granola and greek yogurt are saving my life these days. [07:08] Why I’ve been trying to wear real pajamas to bed. [09:18] I posted about my habit tracker and came to find out… Jesse was right. [11:35] I have been reading/listening to We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter. [15:53] A quick story about how I used to pronounce Yosemite. [16:58] Jesse has been reading SOG by John Plaster. [17:53] The question that inspired this episode. [19:27] There is so much fear circulating in the world causing us to feel reactionary. [21:06] Then to add on top of the fear is the nature of conversations on social media. [23:28] We often lose so much context and empathy by not having face-to-face conversations. [26:22] Why you need to listen with a heart to understand the other person. [28:07] Don't make sweeping generalizations. [30:00] Always remember to care about the person more than you care about their opinion.

Finding Yourself in Motherhood :: Amber O’Neal Johnston [Ep 310]
Amber O’Neal describes herself as a homeschooling mama using Charlotte Mason principles in an atmosphere where “Charlotte Mason wears an afro.” She joins me to talk about how she unexpectedly found she loved homeschooling and working to help her kids love themselves and others. “The Holy Spirit is the supreme educator and the Holy Spirit will speak directly and work directly with our children just as he does through us. And that was a total reframe for me because it gave me a lot of freedom and released a lot of pressure for me when I realized that I'm actually not the supreme educator, I am a guide and I'm going to come alongside my child and that my job is not to teach in the traditional sense of teaching, but more to act as a guide.” Amber shares why she’s creating resources for her children and others to share books and history from people of color and the journey she’s been on with her children as she encourages them to embrace their skin color and cultural history. And her resources and the Charlotte Mason principles aren’t just for homeschooling mamas. She has book lists of great things to read with your children to give them a more holistic view on black history, poetry and culture.  Connect with Amber:  Website: https://heritagemom.com Facebook: facebook.com/HeritageMomBlog Instagram:  @heritagemomblog  Links Mentioned:   Amber’s Heritage Packs and moreBook Recommendations from AmberAbout Charlotte Mason Featured Sponsors: Acorn TV --try it for FREE for 30 days acorn.tv use code: DMAFunction of Beauty-- get 20% off first order at functionofbeauty.com/DMA.

Your medical questions answered with pediatrician Dr. Hillary Lewis
Do you remember all the questions you asked the pediatrician about your first child? I remember one particular appointment when my daughter was about six weeks old. I showed up at the doctor’s office with a list so long it barely fit in my SUV. The questions seem silly now, but I asked things like: How do I know when to change diaper sizes? (Duh, when the others don’t fit). And how do I know if the crib bedding is overstimulating her? (Thanks a lot, Babywise). Bless my heart, and thank goodness for patient pediatricians. Today we have the chance to collectively ask our medical questions to Dr. Hillary Lewis. Dr. Lewis is a pediatrician in Dallas who loves the Lord and is raising three kids of her own. Much like the litany of questions I asked all those years ago of my pediatrician, I’m bombarding her with some of our most common medical questions when it comes to our kids (and not how to determine diaper-sizing). We covered topics like: * Physical concerns of COVID * The emotional toll of COVID * Acne from masks * The COVID vaccine and its implications for our kids * Thoughts on the Gardasil vaccine * The age we can begin to see signs of ADD/ADHD * Balancing faith and science in our families I took one for the team and tried to ask the questions we’ve all been wondering about but haven’t actually voiced. Praying it’s as helpful to you as it was for me!
