Podcast Episode 174: Healing Your Family from the Hard Stuff

Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 174 of The New Family Podcast where we talk to a parenting coach about helping to heal your family from some of the harder stuff that comes your way.

Life is an unpredictable ride and sometimes we find ourselves — and our families — in really difficult times. You might be dealing with a death in the family, a job loss, a divorce, a natural disaster or a bankruptcy. Or maybe your family situation has not ever been a peaceful and happy one and you need to move all of you to a healthier place. As some of you know, one of my mandates is to help people find their way to a happy family life after going through a major transition related to separation and divorce. But there are lots of different shapes that these challenges can take, and in fact, sometimes life hands you a couple of real doozies at once. My guest on today’s episode is Carrie Anne Killeen, a parenting coach, former teacher and single mom of three girls. Her work as The Nourished Mama takes a whole being approach to family wellness. She has also been through some very challenging times herself as a survivor of an abusive relationship. Carrie Anne talks with us about healing her own family from difficult circumstances and how you can do the same.

Carrie Anne’s Parenting Advice

“Tap into who you are, tap into the power of who you are. Realize that this situation in your life, the chaos in your life is actually creating you. When you get through it, because you will get through it, you can discover your soul’s purpose. Because it’s all been created for a reason and no suffering has ever been given to us just to pummel us. It’s actually been given to us to help us rise.”
