Show Notes

Discouragement is inevitable part of life … but there ARE ways to climb out. Our dear friend and special guest, Amanda Taylor, spent a good 6+ years in a place of unhappiness, even though she really seemed to “have it all”. Anxiety, depression, feelings of failure and defeat, plus other heavy burdens, felt crippling and debilitating. Amanda shares how she successfully worked through — and how she *continues* to work though — those internal issues. No matter what kind of discouragement you’re feeling, you are sure to benefit from hearing about her experiences and glean from her advice. Show notes can be found at BeckyHiggins.com/Blog.

Plus, we randomly pick listeners that do leave reviews, to win awesome stuff.

087: Grief / Pain / Loss / Trauma (with Tasha Clifford)

It can be so hard to know what to say and how to offer support to someone who has lost a child or who has experienced trauma of any kind. Tasha Clifford is a mom to four sons. Her oldest, Morgan, died last year from brain cancer. In this episode, we have a very intimate and raw conversation with her about grief, pain, loss, and trauma. Tasha shares why we need to get past saying, “Let me know if you need anything,” and just act. This eye-opening conversation will help you be more conscious of the things you say and do around those who are suffering. SPONSOR: Simple Notebooks from [shopbeckyhiggins.com](http://shopbeckyhiggins.com/). SHOW NOTES: Watch Megan Devine’s YouTube video [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2zLCCRT-nE).

079: Understanding Sexual Development (with Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife)

In this bonus episode with Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife, we talk about how to teach our children about sexual development in a healthy way and how to teach them about sexuality in a way that helps them move closer to their long-term goals and to be true to themselves. We discuss how NOT to shame them and what to do if we’ve overreacted to certain behaviors in the past. As you listen, we hope you’ll feel more confident and empowered as you have positive discussions with your children instead of approaching their questions and decisions with fear. SHOW NOTES: We recommend listening to Episode 078 before this one. Find Jennifer’s website (podcasts, events, classes, etc.) [here](http://www.finlayson-fife.com/) and you can find her on instagram — @finlaysonfife.
