Finding Joy Blogcast #39 2/1/2018:

Can you believe 18 months later and the book is finally in the hands of the publisher? Not only does the book talk about bravery, but I think taking on a book is bravery.

Finding Joy Blogcast #38 5/17/2017:

A little fun today. . . . digital mosquitos . . . ha!

Finding Joy Blogcast #36 5/08/2017:

Well, I had to talk about the van fire and what it meant to me. How it made me appreciate a few things more. I guess the “TV interview” was not enough. 🙂

Finding Joy Blogcast #35 5/01/2017:

Ya know how everyone is going crazy over my “Do The Dishes” blog post? Well, today we talk about it.

Finding Joy Blogcast #34 4/20/2017:

So today I got a chance to talk to Katie Hornor of Blogging Successfully. We talked about my first attempts at monetizing, or making money on Finding Joy. I think there is a fine line between serving your community and profiting from them. Today we talk about that.

Finding Joy Blogcast #31 6/7/2016:

Can we talk about something that really gets under my skin? I think we forget that our kids are actually people. We need to be lifting them up.

Finding Joy Blogcast #30 4/17/2016:

Let’s make happy a habit. I think if we don’t actually try, how are we going to get there? Did I ever tell you about the marshmallow fight? Let me tell you. . .

Finding Joy Blogcast #29 2/9/2016:

Hmm. . . I’m about to turn 41 and it occurred to me that turning 40 was great. I think I really liked it. Let’s talk about it.

Finding Joy Blogcast #21 7/17/2015:
I hate that I say sorry. Even when my closest friends come over, if there are dishes in the sink I apologize. On today’s program our friends at Quirky Inspired and I discuss that very thing.

Finding Joy Blogcast #20 6/12/2015:

On the heels of our New Zealand trip I was reminded of an event I haven’t shared much, the day Caleb fell from the window.

Mom Guilt. It is no bigger than when your kids get hurt. Self doubt, angst . . . everything rolled into one. I just want to share with you what I learned from that.

Finding Joy Blogcast #19 5/2/2015:

People ask me how I met Dan. So this week we made a video.

Finding Joy Blogcast #18 4/10/2015:

Inspired by Glozell’s green lipstick choice — this is about living boldly — and not comparing with other but loving each other for their choices. What they do doesn’t have to define you.

Finding Joy Blogcast #17 3/19/2015:

Ah, yes, the universal struggle of parenthood — opening those fruit cups without spilling, squirting, or leaking the juice everywhere.

Finding Joy Blogcast #16 3/6/2015:

Have you ever been asked how you do it all?

Have you ever wondered how you do it all?

Here’s the answer.

Finding Joy Blogcast #15 2/10/2015:

So many conversations today. I guess the one thing I’d want you to take away from this is: “don’t worry what people think”.

Finding Joy Blogcast #14 2/6/2015:

If you listen to this conversation I had with Michael Eger, you’ll be happy. How many times do you say that during the day? If this. . . then? Today we talk about that.

Finding Joy Blogcast #13 11/22/2014:

Thanksgiving Break!!! For those of you thinking about maybe taking on a blog as a hobby, today I got a chance to talk about what that means now and how you can stand out amongst all the other blogs. And I have the pleasure of doing that with Dan and our friend Adrienne Graham.

Finding Joy Blogcast #12 11/21/2014:

This week my post “The Motherhood Days We Don’t Talk about that Much But We Should” went viral. Crazy.

Finding Joy Blogcast #11 11/05/2014:

Proof that I am almost 40! You know what they say, 40 is the new 30.

Finding Joy Blogcast #10 11/05/2014:

I know you know about Blogging Concentrated, but I wasn’t sure you knew who it was for or what we do at the events. So I sat down with my friend Matt Frary and we exposed it all:

Finding Joy Blogcast #9 10/20/2014:

This week’s post had me rolling. Dan wrote a guest post for the site and it is funny. Tune in to learn the 36 Rules of Dinner.

    So accurate! Nothing but the heartfelt truth.Thank you so much for getting it and spreading it!! .
    You know there is something to be said about the invisible work we mothers do. For most of my mothering life the maternal thinking I did was ever present, sometimes in the forefront of my consciousness,sometimes secondary, but almost always there. It took a lot of introspection , learning from the children, from interactions,from my self, from thoughts and feelings felt in the past ,and in the present ,from caring professionals and definitely from other mothers assimilating wisdom, preparing for today and the future. Loving and caring so deeply leaves you vulnerable to pain yet can also bring great joy. we mothers have had an opportunity to get a hands on life course in human development. Perhaps that knowledge
    can be used, perhaps that wisdom can be made visible,,perhaps we could value it ourselves and spread it, Perhaps if we did that deliberately and consciously we could influence human nature.It’s a reach I know,but why not try.?

    Your work is amazing and inspiring! You have truly made it easier for all the readers to be on the same level by sharing vulnerably your experiences and even more the inner thought process that mothers feel and have.

    Hey, Rachel! It is so great to have found you, and boy does it seem like you are a busy mom! You have enticed me to participate in the de-clutter-along that starts on Monday. I found you again just in time- God’s Perfect timing. I ordered the book thrugh AUDIBLE. I may take a little listen ahead of time. The sample offered to us on Amazon was such a tease! And having lived in this house for over 20 years, I am certain my work is cut out for me. I am really excited to get going. Will you be emailing us how this will work? Take care and thank yu ,thank you for taking the initiative in getting us up and off of our collective bums! Elisabeth Charriez

    Happy to have found your page. I have elementary-aged children, and no pre-schoolers, but I still often find it hard to snap out of busy-mommy and referee-mommy modes and simply find joy in the moment. I know that if I can find true joy in the moment and smile and laugh, all the negative can be diffused, but I often miss this emotion and just get pulled down to beating myself up and wishing I could have a re-do. Perhaps I should just humble myself and ask my kids for a redo more often. 🙂
