About
Mom life: we’re surrounded with the message that it’s the tired life, the no-time-for-myself life, the HARD life. And while it is hard and full of lots of servitude, the idea that motherhood means a joy-less life is something I’m passionate about putting a stop to. I’m on a mission to help you stop counting down the minutes till bedtime (at least most days). I want you to stop cleaning up after your kids’ childhood, and start being present for it - start enjoying it. I believe in John 10:10, that we are called to abundant life, and I know mothers are NOT excluded from that promise. Join me in conversations about simplicity, minimalism, and lots of other good stuff that leads to a life of less for the sake of enjoying more in motherhood. I’m Allie Casazza, and this is The Purpose Show.

Ep 341. Mastering Self-Presentation: The Art of Crafting Your Identity.

In this episode Allie dives in and responds to a comment by a woman from the collective.  Sharing how she feels judged by certain women in her life, this has left her felling small and holding her back from being her true self. We at times put on a mask to get approval from others, this is a form of self betrayal. Not only that but self abuse to yourself. People are going to judge you no matter what you do.  We need to embody our truest self, no matter what. It is time to separate from the old way of doing things.  You are your personal brand, we need to hold ourselves in that place. The way you show up in all areas of your life. Don’t you want it to be authentic? Don’t you want it to be the real you? Mentioned in this Episode: Join the Collective: alliecasazza.com/collective Audit Your Life For FREE!

Ep 340: Working From the Feminine in a Man's World

We live in a culture that tells us that in order to be successful you have to be in output mode — constantly pouring out your energy. But what if we led from input mode?  There is a huge difference between the two but at the core output is masculine and input is feminine. And this isn't about anatomy because everyone has masculine AND feminine energy (the healthiest souls have a good balance of both).  What if invited more of that feminine energy into our day? What if we added value to our lives by pouring into ourselves in small ways that brought more success?  Being in the feminine energy does not mean lying back, doing nothing, or being less productive. It just means handling your productivity differently than the way culture tells you. It means knowing how to work your feminine energy, still get things done + handle shit.  There are some really simple things you can do to lean into your feminine energy and I am so excited to share them with you in this episode!  Mentioned in this Episode: Join the Collective: alliecasazza.com/collective Audit Your Life For FREE!

Ep 338: Mom Guilt, Doing Life Your Way & Abandoning Societal Standards

I feel like I've done life backward, by accident. Getting married young + having kids young, back to back I didn't get to experience typical "20s." My whole life was dedicated to my family. Hear me, it still is in EVERY way. But I also want to prioritize myself and my dreams. ☁️ If you have felt guilty for prioritizing you or you feel like you have to prove how worthy you are to do things for you ... this episode is for you. I am in the middle of these emotions myself, and I am done doing life the way society says to. I am no longer subscribing to the pressure society puts on motherhood, and you don't have to either. 👏 Mentioned in this Episode: Join the Collective: alliecasazza.com/collective Audit Your Life For FREE!

Ep 337: Exes Unplugged: Unmasking the Truth About Our Relationship feat. Brian Casazza

Let's talk about the elephant on the internet right now. Are Brian, mystery man, and I in a throuple? 🌶️ Guys, no. We are not.  The reason I invited Brian on to talk about this is because we feel like it is incredibly sad and heartbreaking that a couple being in a secret throuple is more believable than a couple divorcing amicably. So we are sitting down to talk about this, and how/why it has been SO easy for us to divorce amicably.  Mentioned in this Episode: Join the Collective: alliecasazza.com/collective Audit Your Life For FREE!

Ep 336: Feeling Selfish for Letting Go of What's "Not Serving You"? Listen to This.

Can you relate to that title? Sometimes you try things and they just aren't serving YOU the same way they are serving others. Babe, it is OK! Let it go.  "You have to release what's not serving you. You have to let it go." Have you heard someone say that to you before? If you've been around my content for a while now, you may have heard me say that to you before. And I will always stand by that. 👏 But I totally understand feeling selfish by letting go. We are going to talk about that today, head-on. Because feeling selfish to let go of what's no longer serving you is actually doing everybody else a disservice as well. Trust me.

Ep 335: Breakups, Heartache & Letting Go

I am new to opening up and sharing vulnerable parts of my personal life that I am still working through. Usually, I will share things once I have journeyed through the emotions + processed everything. And today I am sharing about my recent breakup with the first guy I dated since my divorce. ❤️  In this episode, I want to speak directly to a false narrative when it comes to dating: just because there are more pros than cons in your relationship, he is an amazing guy, and he treats you like a queen does NOT mean you ignore your feelings. If you feel like you need to let go of something good, do it.  Letting go of something really good does not mean you failed or that you won't have something good again. That is NOT true. Break through that fear babe. Don't let fear hold you back ✨ Mentioned in this Episode: Join the Collective: alliecasazza.com/collective Audit Your Life For FREE!

Ep 334: A Becoming Her Story - From Abuse to Self Discovery & Healing with Nicole Christie Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of this beautiful conversation with Nicole Christie! If you haven't listened to part one ... go do that first. ❤️ Did you know there is a difference between having confidence in your abilities and having a low sense of self-worth? It's true. And being confident in your abilities but not believing in yourself means you don't set boundaries or take care of YOU. That is not healthy, friend. There are things you can do to love, nurture, and heal yourself as you walk through wounds (from others and yourself). Nicole is sharing more about those things through her personal journey toward healing. Nicole is a writer, podcaster, and entrepreneur. She’s the founder and CEO of Tulla Productions—a storytelling studio that connects leading brands and notable people with their audience through human-centered audio, visual, and print stories—and the creator and host of Here For Me, a podcast about the power of choosing yourself. She has been a storyteller since she could string words together and it’s her passion to bring tales of courage, impact, and utter badassery to life!

Ep 332: Answering Your Questions About Business

Recently I did a live Q+A with some business babes in my Start Up School community and these questions were TOO good! I had to share them with you.

Ep 330: A Fresh Start Anytime You Need It

Let's say you are going through your day and things start feeling off; maybe things happen and your mood changes. Whenever this shift happens, you can make the internal decision to reset yourself.  We have given too much power to the "Fresh Start Energy" that Mondays, New Year's, or the first of the month carry. You don't have to wait for a new day, you can reset today. What if you shifted your perspective and see your new breath as a fresh start? You can bring fresh start energy to your day; whatever day, minute, or moment. You decide. You are the embodiment of whatever you choose, consciously or unconsciously. So you might as well embody the fresh start whenever you need it. I really want this episode to reach moms! So if you have mom friends, text them a link so they can listen too.

Ep 328: How To Find Yourself

Mama friends! I know you feel me when I say this — it's easy to lose yourself in the busyness, noise, and shuffle of motherhood.  But the truth is: you are not just a mother. I know that is controversial and may stir up some emotions, but I mean it. Motherhood is not your identity. One role does not define all of you. There is more to who you are than being a mom. If you want to live a well-balanced, grounded, and fulfilled life, motherhood cannot (and should not) take over all of who you are.  Anything can be everything for a little while, but when we lose sight of who we are within it, it becomes unhealthy. And I don't want that for my life or yours, friend. So let's find ourselves again ❤️ Mentioned in this Episode: Join the Collective: alliecasazza.com/collective Shop Allie's Amazon Favs!  Connect with Allie: Instagram Website Podcast Page This podcast is produced by Pivot Media Co. Interested in advertising on this podcast?

We are parents and friends, but we decided to end the marriage part of our relationship. This happened over a year ago and we have talked about it publically a lot since. But we haven't sat down on the podcast and discussed it ... until now. We are sharing a bit more about our journey coming to the divorce, the stigma around divorce, and how this has changed us as a couple.  Divorce doesn't have to be war. It doesn't have to be centered around negativity. And it doesn't have to mean you hate each other or cut each other off. For us, divorce has been an evolution — for us as individuals and as a family.

Ep 316: Superfood Eating with Kristel de Groot

So you want to reset your gut, balance your hormones, or just feel healthier — babe, me too! I have been on this journey for a few years now and if there is something I have learned it is this: foods carry power. They can help you or hurt you.  Have you ever heard of Super Foods? To put it simply, they are the foods that fuel your body in the right + best ways. You may have heard conversations around this before and I know it can be overwhelming if you are first diving in. Especially if you are a busy mom trying to take care of your family!  So I brought Kristel de Groot on the show to break it all down and simplify it for you. If you are looking to understand Super Foods more, why they matter, how you can get started adding them into your diet, and take control of your health ... then tune in, babe.

Ep 308: Hey Allie! How do you talk to your family about upleveling + outsourcing things in your life? (with Alyssa)

This next conversation in the Hey Allie! series is really good. Alyssa is a faithful member of my community and she asks such good questions about upleveling + outsourcing things in your life.  Before you listen, let me encourage you friend. You are worthy of upleveling and outsourcing. Outsourcing things means you can be a better you; for your family, your business, your spouse, and your life. The legacy of your family should be at the forefront of your mind. Stepping into a new level and choosing to outsource areas you need support in, will only further that legacy.  In this episode Alyssa asks Allie:  How did you talk to Brian and the kids whenever you up-leveled or outsourced a new area of your life? Did you get any pushback? (from your immediate and/or extended family)  What affirmations did you use around this idea that “I am worthy of receiving help” in order to cement upleveling + outsourcing?  Is there an order or process that you typically recommend to moms for what they should outsource?  Connect with Alyssa: Free download for YOU!  The Unbusy Mom Podcast Instagram Mentioned in this Episode: Grab The Declutter Like A Mother Planner Unburdened Connect with Allie: Instagram Website Podcast Page This podcast is produced by Pivot Media Co. Interested in advertising on this podcast?

Ep 303: Breaking Old Patterns Makes Way For Good To Come Through

When I feel stuck in my business, I feel stuck in my purpose. Can you relate?  As I have shifted over the last year or so, my message has also shifted; which ultimately means, my audience has shifted too. What once felt aligned now feels misaligned. What once felt good and like it was moving forward, now feels stuck and without clear direction.  All of this has led me to recognize old patterns that are no longer serving me and are holding me back from the GOOD that is trying to come through. We all have patterns that do this to us. As you sit and listen to this episode, my hope is that you give yourself some grace and take a moment to look at the old patterns in your own life that may be holding YOU back as well. ❤️ Ps - thank you for always letting me be vulnerable with you, babe. I am grateful you're part of my community.  In this episode Allie discusses:  🤩 When she realized she was stuck and what she did to get out of it  💫 The patterns that hold her back (like holding onto things and isolating herself)  💛 The difference between healthy boundaries and hiding  Mentioned in this Episode: Pre-order the Declutter Like A Mother Planner Connect with Allie: Instagram Website Podcast Page This podcast is produced by Pivot Media Co. Interested in advertising on this podcast?

Clutter impacts your space and blocks energy. Blocked energy in your is reflected in your home, much of the time. And blocked energy is a side effect of negative energy flow.

Ep 294: Mommy Juice + Wine Culture with Michelle Smith

We are diving into Mommy Juice (aka wine) culture; from knowing when you are taking it too far to ways you can put yourself in check to defining what a healthy relationship with alcohol for YOU is. Joining me for this conversation is my friend, Michelle Smith. Her story is POWERFUL, and I know you will feel loved (not ashamed) as you listen to her share. Mama's, I see you. You are doing better than you think.  Michelle Smith is a bestselling author, keynote speaker, and the founder of Recovery is the New Black, a digital community for women living or exploring an alcohol-free life. Michelle struggled for years with alcohol addiction that looked like “overdoing it.” In reality, she was drinking to escape the stresses of life---and the “mommy juice” drinking culture was helping her self-destruct. Since getting sober in 2016, she integrates both her personal experience in recovery and professional experience as a mental health and addiction advocate toward normalizing sobriety in our boozy culture.    In this episode Allie + Michelle discuss:  ⚾ Plastic vs fragile balls that moms juggle and how to decide what to hold onto and what to let go of 🍷 When alcohol moves from being something you enjoy to something you use as a coping mechanism 🤩 How to handle being sober in a society that normalizes drinking + social drinking  💛 What a healthy relationship with alcohol looks like  Connect with Michelle: Website Instagram @recoveryisthenewblack Grab her Book! Living Sober, Living Free: A Guided Journal for Women Who Want to Stop Drinking.

Ep 289: Find Your Voice, Value Yourself, and Set Boundaries with Amy Smith Green

Our culture (especially mom culture) tells us that self-sacrifice is glorified and that being a martyr to your family and kids is like wearing a badge of honor. But ... when we silence ourselves + continue living in this way, we send a subconscious message to our mind that our wants, opinions, and needs do NOT matter. And ultimately, this determines our self-worth.  So let's put an end to this toxic thinking and culture around us — let's set some boundaries, find our voice, and authentically and unapologetically value ourselves.  Amy Smith Green is a certified and credentialed life coach and hypnotherapist, masterful speaker, and personal empowerment expert. Amy uses her roles as coach, writer, podcaster, and speaker to move individuals to a place of radical personal empowerment and self-worth.  In this episode Allie + Amy discuss:  ❌ Why we are compelled NOT to set boundaries.  🤩 How to figure out where boundaries are needed in your life  ❤️ The core meaning of worthiness and the powerful role it plays in developing boundaries in your life  Connect with Amy Green Smith: Instagram Facebook Website Mentioned in this Episode: Course in 30  Connect with Allie: Instagram Website Podcast Page This podcast is produced by Pivot Media Co. Interested in advertising on this podcast?

Ep 288: The Energetic Tie Between Upleveling + Clutter

When you are leveling up, so much of what you use every day stops feeling good. Whether that is your wardrobe, skin care, business model, homeschool routine, family rhythms, personal care - they just stop working for you and supporting you in that new level. You are feeling cluttered in your own space now that you have reached a new level. If you feel like an alien in your own space ... that is ok. This is SO normal and such a good sign. It shows growth.  But if you don't deal with that clutter, you risk blocking growth in that new level. So let's dive into this and talk about clutter in this new level. I got you, babe.  In this episode Allie discusses:  🤩 Signs that you are unleveling and stepping into a new level of who you are becoming.  🖤 Feeling uncomfortable in your space as you level up and why it is so important to be aware of that feeling  ☺️ Becoming ok with these changes; admit that you're changing and start decluttering the things around you that are no longer serving who you are becoming.  Mentioned in this Episode: Course in 30  Connect with Allie: Instagram Website Podcast Page This podcast is produced by Pivot Media Co. Interested in advertising on this podcast?

BONUS: We Got Unmarried

In this episode I am opening up about the last year, the moving pieces, and ultimately how this beautiful shift took place in the BEST way possible. ❤️ Brian and I came to this decision together and it has been super smooth + positive. We don't like the word divorce (it's a really negative word in our world) so we decided to call our situation what it is ... we are unmarried. We aren't a couple, but we are a family. Our kids come first and still see mom and dad being the best friends we always have been, without the romantic side. My hope in this episode is that you walk away seeing divorce from another perspective; a lighter, less heavy perspective.  You can watch the full YouTube video announcement about this decision HERE.  Connect with Allie: Instagram Website Podcast Page This podcast is produced by Pivot Media Co. Interested in advertising on this podcast?

Ep 283: How to Create A Morning Routine That Sets You Up For A Good Day

Your morning routine has the power to set you up for success for the rest of your day — it should work FOR you and bring ease to your life. It should not be rigid or driven by rules, but be fluid and personal.  Every new season of my life usually brings a shift in my morning routine. And the one thing I have learned is this: If it's hard to stick to, it's not actually serving you.  Before you create a morning routine you have to define what a successful day means to YOU (and only you can define that). For me, I want to be happy, feel good, and be really present. That is my foundation for a morning routine that gets me ready to experience THAT success. And I know you can experience that same success everyday. Pop in your headphones, grab a notebook or open your notes app, and let's create a morning routine that works FOR you.  I want to see your routines! Tag me on Instagram as you figure out your routine and even as you live it out. I cannot wait to see YOU living our your definition of success, babe.  In this episode Allie discusses:  🤩 Why it is important to define what a successful day is for YOU before you create a morning routine  ☀️ Her current morning routine — she breaks it down moment by moment!  📝 Prompts + questions you can use to get started creating YOUR morning routine  Mentioned in this Episode: Grab Allie's books Biz coaching with Allie Connect with Allie: Instagram Website Podcast Page This podcast is produced by Pivot Media Co. Interested in advertising on this podcast?

Ep 275: How To Be Loving with Danielle LaPorte

Being feminine is so beautifully portrayed in becoming a mother. But the messaging in society doesn't support that. Feminism is all about receiving but motherhood is all about giving. Ultimately, the misunderstanding of feeling like we need to constantly give, give, give comes from an unhealed part of ourselves. To dive into that healing, we need to learn how to be loving (with ourselves and others). I am so excited to chat about all of this (and so much more!) with Danielle LaPorte. She is an author and chart-topping podcast host, and a member of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100. Her most recent book is called How To Be Loving and speaks to when your heart is breaking open and the world is waking up. Danielle is also the author of The Fire Starter Sessions, The Desire Map, White Hot Truth, and producer of dozens of meditation kits and online programs for spiritual support.

How I Worked Through A Lifetime of Betrayals to Call In Authentic Friendships

I am going to be REALLY honest with you. Friendships don't come naturally to me. I have been through a lot of trauma when it comes to friendships and it wasn't until I dug deep and did the hard work this year that I found healing and friendship took a positive turn. If you are in a season where you are struggling to find good friends, I feel you. I get it. But there is so much more for you! You deserve other women in your corner pushing you forward in life. Do the hard work. Heal from the broken friendships. And allow yourself to open up to new ones. It's worth it, friend. I promise you. Let's heal through this together.

Ep 273: Setting Intent For The Holiday Season

Let's get ready for the holiday season in an unconventional way. I am not talking about gifts, organizing shopping lists, or clearing the clutter. I am talking about setting the intent for the holiday season. Before I do anything - literally anything - I set the intent.

If you feel overwhelmed by the idea of the holiday season or like it is a burden right now, you are not alone. Let's get ahead of those feelings and set the intent for what you want this upcomingseason to look like for you, and for your family.

It was a heavy month of low energy, low feelings, and getting to a place where I needed a reset. So in September I stepped into a month focused on Self-Improvement; I was "Becoming Her."

Ep 264: How Mom Culture is Taking Away Your Power (and How to Take It Back!)

Hot mess mom culture tells us that motherhood WILL be a mess and that the bigger the mess, the more you are accepted. It says ... "if you struggle together, you are connected. If you are doing well, everyone else is failing and you are the villain."   I have talked a lot about my issue with the way society paints motherhood. The way it is drawn for us, how we subscribe to it and how we identify with it. And we all know that what you identify with is what you get, and ultimately how you live.   I think that this message was intended to be true, but it has turned toxic. It is taking away your power to be the best mom you can be for your family.   In this episode, we are going to break this down and shift our mindsets from reactive to ownership. We can take back the power, babe.   Everything mentioned in this episode can be found HERE: alliecasazza.com/shownotes Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

We go through so many situations and so many traumas and there can be so much anxiety throughout our lives. I know that for me, I have struggled with anxiety for a really long time and even been diagnosed with PTSD.

If I allow my anxiety to come with me into certain situations, what I’ve realized is that it kind of passes through. It comes and it goes. Ultimately, one of the best ways to handle anxiety is to be honest with yourself and think “when this is all over, how do I want to feel?” I hope that today’s anxiety hack helps you along your journey.   Everything mentioned in this episode can be found HERE: alliecasazza.com/shownotes/ Learn more about your ad choices.

Ep 141: Loving Right Now

Something I’m asked often is how to love where you are now instead of constantly waiting for the next season to be happy. I believe that we absolutely can feel content with our lives right now even if we’re waiting for something to happen that just hasn’t happened yet.  Even in that discomfort, in that stretching, we still have so much control over how we choose to think about what is or isn’t happening for us. So, I just want to talk about this with you like a friend. Let’s dive in!  Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: alliecasazza.com/shownotes/141 Learn more about your ad choices.

Ep 139: Words, Self-Fulfilling Prophecies + Our Families

The way we talk about things in our lives, the way we speak about the people in our lives has an effect on our reality. So, I really want to dive deeply into that and really get specific with self-fulfilling prophecies that people speak out all the time, and the power in those words and what they do to our families.  I’ve talked about the power of our words multiple times on the show but I have three cliches that people say all the time that I want to really dig deep into today.

Ep 138: Let's Talk Purpose, Abundance + Downsizing with Patrice Washington

One thing that comes up a lot in my business and my community is the question of downsizing. A lot of times it’s the obvious next step after decluttering, but it can be a really hard step to take for a lot of reasons.  Patrice Washington is a best-selling author, speaker, and host of the podcast, Redefining Wealth. She and her husband decluttered their 7,000 square foot home in CA and moved into a 2,000 square foot apartment before moving into their forever home in Georgia. I just love Patrice and I’m so excited that she took the time to talk to me about this issue that comes up a lot.  If you’re thinking about downsizing, this episode is especially for you. But stick around even if you don't really care about downsizing because we ended up talking about so much else.

I’m a very ambitious person. I’m really goal-oriented and I’m really good at looking ahead and casting vision for what I want to do and what I want our life and my business to look like.

Ep 135: Simple Doesn't Equal Small

I feel like a misconception that’s made about me is that I want a simple, small life. But that is 100% the opposite of what I want. I want to live a fricking big, full, ambitious, extravagant life. And sometimes I hear people say, “Well, I don’t want to be a minimalist because I don’t want to have nothing, and be nothing.” And I’m right there with you! That’s not what I want either. At all. So, if you’re like me and you struggle with the idea of a minimalism meaning a bare, have-nothing, do-nothing life, I want to share with you why I believe a simple life doesn’t equal a small life.   Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: alliecasazza.com/shownotes/135 Learn more about your ad choices.

Ep 134: How to Use Parkinson's Law to Be Empowered + Productive

Parkinson’s Law states that the time you give yourself to complete a task is how long you will take to complete a task. However long you decide you’re going to spend on a project is how long you’re going to spend on that project. This thought, this way of living can really change everything for us.

Ep 131: You're Paying For Your Home. Do You Even Like It?

I think it’s important to ask yourself hard questions, to reevaluate life and how you do things and see if you’re really where you want to be and if you’re really happy with the way you’re doing things. And today I want to help you reevaluate the space you live in—your home.  How we feel in our homes, or how we spend our time in our homes is a choice that we make. Even if we make it unintentionally, we’re making the decision to be either happy and content or miserable in our homes. It’s time to start being intentional.

Ep 130: Sunday Night Prep: The Key to Purposeful Weeks

Something I get asked about often is Sunday Night Prep or the Sunday Night Reset. It's something that Brian and I started years ago and I’ve talked about it before on my blog. I believe it is such an important and life-changing practice. It's essentially a way to look ahead at the week and be responsive, not reactive. Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” If you don't look ahead and know where you're going, you're not going to make it there. So, my encouragement to you is to really listen to what I'm saying in this episode. Really challenge yourself to lean in and check in with yourself, your spouse, and your family once a week. I promise it will change the way you are doing life. Let’s jump in! Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: alliecasazza.com/shownotes/130 Learn more about your ad choices.

Ep 129: Q&A: Busting Through Your Hurdles to Decluttering

I get asked so many questions about decluttering—which is what I’m most known for. Lately, there have been a lot of questions about people getting stuck in their decluttering efforts. So, I hosted live Q&A workshop online and answered a bunch of these questions live! I couldn’t answer every single one but I answered the ones that are the most common. Decluttering is doable for everyone. A minimalist lifestyle is possible for everyone and I can show you how to get there in a way that’s practical, possible and relative to you and your family. This is what makes me different from other minimalist teachers. You don’t want to miss this.

Ep 128: Live (FREE!) Business Coaching For Ya!

I love doing business coaching. I do it really exclusively on the side. It’s not a main part of my business. I’m very focused on motherhood, minimalism and my courses. But I have learned so much from turning my blog into a multiple seven figure business in a very short amount of time. And I think there’s something to be said for that.  Recently a woman reached out to me on Instagram and wanted to learn all the business things. We were messaging back and forth and I had the thought, “What if I just got her on and gave her a free introductory business coaching call and we made it an episode?” So, that’s what we did. Amelia has three kids and a fourth on the way, and she's running a business with a similar model to mine. This is a super interesting call and I really hope that you get some golden nuggets from it.  Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: alliecasazza.com/shownotes/128 Learn more about your ad choices.

I’ve got Kendra Hennessy with me today and we’re talking about self-care. I know, I know. Self-care has become such a trendy thing. There are a lot of products out there that are based on self-care.

But before you click away, I don’t think Kendra and I are going to talk about anything that you have heard a million times before. We’re going to talk about the difference between self-care and selfishness because moms can be really judgmental toward each other, and it needs to stop.

Ep 127: How to Be A Better White Person with Latasha Morrison

The world we live in right now is a result of what we believe and what we have inside of us. We each as human beings have a huge responsibility to bring change. But white people have a huge responsibility to end racism. And we need to get the heck up and take action.  And I get it. It’s hard to talk about race, racism and white privilege. It gets messy and awkward and there’s fear involved. But, white people, we have to do better. We have to be better. This needs to end now and it is our responsibility.  I’m so honored that I got to have a discussion with Latasha Morrison. Tasha is a bridge-builder, an author, a speaker, and a powerful voice in the fight for racial justice. She’s just an incredible woman. I was so nervous and so uncomfortable in the weeks leading up to this discussion but I pushed through. I had the conversation and it’s amazing. I’m so honored that this is a part of my show.

What I'm sharing with you in this episode is an exercise that I've been practicing lately and it's been helping me find clarity in what things I'm doing in my life that are not aligning with who I want to be, with who I'm working to become.

I want to be honest about that up front so that you can be aware of that.  Even if you haven't experienced trauma or you're not one of the many, many women who have been raped or had abortions, come into this conversation with headphones, first of all, for your little ones to not hear, and with an open heart because there's so much goodness in here.

I think social media can be such a waste of time and on those same platforms where so much time is wasted, I love creating spaces that are intentional and inspire you to be better. I have a free Facebook group that’s really big, really fun, really engaged. It's an attachment of this podcast, a place where we discuss episodes. Discuss abundant life, simplicity, and intentional living for mothers and women of all types. It's such a cool place. Once a month in that group, I do what is called an Allie Chat where I pull somebody out from the community there and we go live together. There was an Allie Chat recently with a woman named Christina who is just a gem. She asked such amazing questions about her motherhood. I loved the conversation we had and the audience loved the answers that I gave. It was such a powerful Allie Chat and I knew that I had to use it as an episode for The Purpose Show.

Ep 111: A Simple Practice for Daily Happiness, Mindfulness & Making Decisions with Emily P. Freeman

Did you know that, on average, you make 35,000 decisions every single day? That is a lot and feels overwhelming! But decision making doesn’t have to be that way. If we shift our focus from putting off decisions, putting pressure on them, or ignoring them and we turn our focus to the next right thing, the whole decision-making process will be more fun and less intimidating! Emily Freeman is the founder of an incredible movement called The Next Right Thing. She has a book and a podcast around this theory of focusing on the next right thing in front of us and the power that has in our decision making. Give yourself permission to stay in the moment and take action on the next right thing! (Like listening to this episode, because it is a GOOD one!)

Ep 110: Secrets For Navigating Busy Seasons Well

Annie Dillard always says, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” That is an easy statement to hear when we are in restful seasons driven by balance and simplicity. But what about those seasons that are full, busy, and can lead to feeling overwhelmed, mentally cluttered, and a cranky attitude? It is important that we listen to our bodies and minds, and that we take it one day, even one step at a time. And it is freeing when we allow ourselves to become intuitive and make necessary changes and shift in busier seasons. Just know that everything is figureoutable and everything can be simplified. It is ok if you have to cut out or cut back on things. Life won’t end! So let’s dive in and talk about how you can navigate the really busy, full seasons of your life well, and really show up well in those times of life!

EP 108: I Had "The Talk" with My Kid. Here's What I Learned.

The talk. It isn’t just one talk, it is an ongoing conversation. It is an important conversation, a personal one, and one that will come as your kids start asking questions. My 10 year old started asking so we dove right into it. I knew the time was right and I felt confident to lead this conversation well based off the conversation Brian and I had as we prepared for this.   There's so much negativity out there about talking to your kids about sex, so I wanted to add positivity to that pool and just say it doesn't have to be that way. It can absolutely be good, positive, constructive, helpful, sweet, silly and relaxed. I hope that this episode empowers you to do this well and to have a successful ongoing conversation with your child about sex, kissing, love and all that stuff.

EP 107: Tips for Traveling with Kids

Traveling with kids often means traveling with A LOT of stuff and A LOT of stress. But it doesn’t have to be that way and it certainly doesn’t have to be overwhelming! We travel as a family often which means we’ve “trial-ed and error-ed” many different things. From having a small suitcase for each kid to ways we keep our kids entertained on long flights or drives (and everything in between) I hope these tips help you find simplicity in traveling with your kids! At the end of the day, family trips are FUN and are meant to bring your family closer together. You can easily make this a terrible trip or you can make it the best experience! It is up to you- you are the parent. Your kids need grace. You need grace. Relax. Breathe. And try to have fun!

The one thing I don’t talk about is being a work-out-of-the-home mom. I just never did that, so I don’t want to teach what I don’t confidently know. But!

EP 105: Simple, Stellar Style: Everyday Wear Must-Have's

Style and clothing should make you feel good, right? It should make you feel confident and put together. But so many times we say “I don’t have time to pick out my outfits” or “I’ll just throw this on.” This leads to negative thinking about how we look and ultimately impacts how we feel. It doesn’t have to be this way! One of my biggest goals in life is to put an end to the mom-frumping thing! Just because you are a mama doesn’t mean you stop caring about yourself use it as an excuse to not care how you feel about your clothes. Getting dressed can be fun, simple and you can totally have a stellar style! Let’s dive in!

Let’s get honest for a moment … forming authentic friendships takes work! And forming those connections when your lifestyle is different takes even more work.

I just want you to feel you're not alone. I hope you find comfort and joy in the lifestyle you have chosen. And I hope this episode helps you figure out to form real connections through it!

EP 103: Decluttering 101: Where Do I Start?

It’s no surprise that my favorite thing to talk about is decluttering! Clearing the clutter is simplifying your life and creating an atmosphere of less so that you can focus more on what you want to be focusing on and what actually matters to you. This comes in many forms - physical clutter and mental clutter, heart clutter, calendar clutter, physical health clutter - all of that. And in this episode, we are going back to the basics of decluttering your physical stuff. I am going to help you figure out exactly where you should start! Let’s dive in!

I love learning and growing! It is a big part of the conversations I have here on the show. One of the biggest things I think we all struggle with is taking action on what we learn and actually following through on it. There is power in taking action on the things we are reading, learning, and hearing. If you find yourself learning things but struggling to take action on what you are learning, I got you friend!

BONUS: How to Stop Multitasking & Practice Mindfulness Day-to-Day

Multitasking may feel like you are getting a lot done, but when you really think about it, are you? Because, truthfully, we can’t show up in multiple places at once. We can’t show up for a workout, plan our calendar, and think about dinner at the same time. Maybe we can, but are we doing it well? Probably not. Multitasking can create this inner noise and feeling of things getting done in a rushed or hurried way. We need to show up well and be fully present in life instead of just letting it pass us by. This is something I am totally learning right now and I am excited to share the journey with you!

Ep 101: Stop Over-Complicating Decision Making

We all do it. We all over-complicate decision making because sometimes it is easier to not make a decision than to take action on a decision. But unmade decisions carry unnecessary weight and unwanted stress that shouldn’t have to carry. Some decisions cannot be made right away and need time, but whenever they can be made right away, just do it. Just get it done. Do what you have to do to come to a decision as quickly as possible - then you won’t have to carry that load any more! On the flip side, if you have a big decision to make I hope you find this episode helpful as I share how I process making decisions (and avoid over-complicating them!)

It’s part two of the “Ask Allie Anything About Business” episode and I am so excited to continue chatting all things business with you guys! I absolutely love talking about this. I'm very passionate about business and I think it's so important for people, especially women and mothers, to find a way to create revenue and income based on what they're passionate about.

Ep 096: Real Women Are Strong Women

Sometimes we shame ourselves, but a lot of the time it's other people who shame us. From breastfed to formula fed, working from home or at a 9 to 5 office job, having a clean home or a messy home, your birth plan, how you school your kids, and so much more. Shame comes in all directions and most of us feel like we never do anything right because we are being shamed all the time. But we have to stop this! No one is going to come in and help us with this. We have to be on each other's side. We have to shut this down. We have to stop judging each other. All we have is each other and we have to stop turning against each other.

A few months ago I had Enneagram expert and coach, Beth McCord, on the show to discuss all things Enneagram. In this episode, Beth is chatting with Brian and I about the Enneagram in the context of marriage. It’s a fun coaching, therapy session! We get real vulnerable as we discuss our personality differences and the hot button issues in our marriage (everyone has one!). Beth helped us navigate how to handle issues that continuously come up in our marriage! We've seen a big difference in the mutual respect level between us and that is because Beth helped us understand each other’s personality!

When I started my journey to decluttering my home, I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how to make it happen. At the time, I could only find help with organizing clutter, not clearing it - and I wanted to clear it out! I learned a lot along the way which is why one of my main missions is to help you declutter faster, quicker, and more effectively. I want to take you all the way to the other side of simplicity and experience the joy and freedom in half the time.

Ep 093: Stop Over-Complicating Exercise

I don't think there is anything that has been more blown out of proportion and overly complicated than exercise. People obsess over the form, the type, and the amount of exercise. They read massive books on the topic all while procrastinating the actual task of exercising. And so many people set a New Year’s goal around exercise that quickly becomes overcomplicated and they give up within the first few weeks. But exercise doesn’t have to be overcomplicated. Exercise is a good thing - it decreases stress, improves sex, improves mood, and so much more! Exercise gives you a really great life and improves so many things. But you’ve got to make it happen! You're in charge. You are an action-taking problem-solving woman and that type of woman ditches excuses. Don’t overcomplicate it. Just make it happen!

Ep 092: Getting Your Unwilling Family On Board With Minimalism

When I first started my journey to living minimal and simplified, Brian was not on board. It took him a few years to really get it and join me in it. But not everyone in life will understand or support the decision our family made to live minimalistically. When it comes to getting your unwilling family on board with minimalism, the bottom line is that you cannot control other people. This is your life, your kids, and your home. Don’t let anyone make you feel guilty. Don’t hold onto things out of obligation. Just do what you feel like you need to do to live a purposeful, intentional life focused on what matters!

Delegation and automation are hot topics in the business world, but they can also be applied to our personal lives - especially as mama’s! You don’t have to do it all! You can delegate to people outside of your home or you can delegate to your kids. You can automate things you know have to get done (like laundry and dishes) in order for your home and family to run smoothly. Trust me, delegation and automation will bring you so much freedom!

It is the day after Christmas … and I hope you had an incredible holiday! For my family, the day after Christmas is always the best day to declutter. Why? Because we are all much more willing  to get rid of the toys, clothes, and stuff we collected through the year since we just opened up new ones. This doesn’t have to bring down the holiday spirit by any means either. It can be a super fun and interactive way to celebrate the season and gear up to start a New Year!

Ep 089: Minimalism For Those Who Enjoy Shopping

There is this awkward tension in our culture where we feel we have to choose between being minimalist and enjoying shopping. Why can’t we choose both? Just because we enjoy shopping doesn’t mean we buy everything we see on the shelves. I enjoy shopping! Strolling the aisles of a store is where I find inspiration and get refreshed. For me, it is about browsing and enjoying, without feeling the pressure to buy every single thing I find that I like. I'm not shopping to shop. I am shopping because I truly enjoy the process of being out and finding inspiration! And I know that like me, a lot of you would say the same. So I hope this episode encourages you to find freedom in being a minimalist who enjoys shopping.

Ep 088: Getting Intentional with Holiday Traditions

This time of year it sometimes feels like we've got things kind of backwards. We care so much about creating a special holiday and not missing out (you know, we all have FOMO) that we go way too far and end up trying to create such a special atmosphere, that it's very not special. We go out of our way with our traditions, we stretch our schedules and budgets thinner than we are comfortable with just to make Christmas super special. It ends up ruining the special occasion we tried tirelessly to create! It's like our traditions have become really overbearing. They start to feel really heavy and they're not fun anymore. We have stopped looking forward to them. Traditions should not detract from the season. They should elevate it. So, let’s put our traditions under the light of intentionality and get back to what serves us and our families best in this season.

Ep 087: A Simple Christmas

Hello December. Hello Christmastime! Hello trying to be minimal and simple during Christmas. Anyone struggle with this? I think much of the problem is that our society puts an overwhelming amount of pressure on Christmas and focus on the wrong things. We reach for what we want rather than what we need (and what will bring us true joy). Not to mention the serious FOMO we face during the holiday season! We're afraid that if we don't buy lots of presents, overbook our calendars with holiday activities, and go all in that we're missing out, or our kids are missing out, and we're not doing a good job. Like we aren't giving them a proper Christmas. But everyone has has different family situations, budgets, and ideals that need to be considered.

If you're unfamiliar, the Enneagram is a personality test of sorts, but it's so much deeper than that. It has been a vital tool in understanding myself, my husband, and my children better. It has helped me heal some serious wounds from being misunderstood. And it has really helped me feel more alive and confident in who I am! The Enneagram will guide you through transformation and growth as you walk through a simple three step process of discover, explore, and become to your truest self.

It is SO easy to overcomplicate things. We spend so much time looking for the perfect answer instead of looking for the best answer for right now. We prolong jumping to action and learning as we go. And let’s be honest, most of the time we are afraid to say “yes.” One thing I have learned in my own life is that the best adventures and most beneficial things come from saying “yes” way before I was ready and way before it was perfect.

Ep 084: Putting Off Decluttering? I Wrote Your 'Why' For You

When it comes to decluttering, many people get stuck on the hurdles that come up in the process. They don’t take action, they procrastinate, and they never dive into it. When I realized that my stuff didn't have to own me and that I could live my life instead of cleaning up after it all the time, everything changed. What you need in order to take on anything new, anything hard, any big change in moving away from the life you've lived and into the new life you're going to live, what you need to do that, is a solid ‘why’ underneath you. Your ‘why’ will push you forward to keep going and keep making these positive changes when things get in the way and it feels too hard. So if you are putting off decluttering, I promise this episode will show you why you need to do!

Ep 083: Let's Talk About Working Mom Guilt

Working motherhood has so many different angles. And whether you work full time or part time, work outside of your home or from your home, working mom guilt is a real thing. We all struggle with it at one point or another. We don’t want to miss the first moments of our kids lives or the activities they are involved in, we don’t want them to think that all we do is sit on our computers or phones all day working, and we definitely don’t want them to resent us for working. So how do we deal with our guilt? How do we balance work and life? How do we teach our kids to value good work ethic? (Because they will grow up and enter the workforce one day!) If there is one thing I know, it is that being a working mom doesn't mean show up, be perfect at everything, have a super clean house, be an awesome cookie baker, come to every game, be super rich, run an amazing business or do amazing at your job. It means prioritize what matters, show up where you can, and find the balance in seasons. Show your kids what a healthy work life relationship really looks like, how grateful you are, how awesome you are, and what it looks like to thrive in these two roles of worker and mother. You’re doing a great job, mama! Keep going for it! Everything I talk about in this episode can be found here: http://alliecasazza.com/shownotes/083 Learn more about your ad choices.

Ep 074: For the Wife Whose Husband Works Long Hours

Today I feel like I'm going through a blast to the past because I'm talking about a season of our lives that has been over for a while. One that was super hard and that I don't love talking about. I am talking about when Brian worked crazy long hours and I was barely surviving as a wife and mom through it. It was one of those really big chunks of my life that I look back on and just feel super grateful that I'm not there anymore. And for those of you who are there right now, I don't mean that to sound annoying. I hope this episode gives you a lot of hope that things can change for you! I just want to say that if you're the wife of a long-hour husband, I totally understand. I know some of you have husbands who work even longer hours than mine did and they go to school or you're a military family and they're gone for long periods of time. I've heard from you guys before and I'm just so floored by your dedication to your families and I just want to encourage you that things can get better. Things can change if you want them to and if you're open to it. And if you're not and you know that you're right where you need to be and you're probably going to stay there, there's a lot of ways to create joy and abundance right where you are. I just want you to be encouraged by that. Everything I talk about in this episode can be found here: http://alliecasazza.com/shownotes/074 Learn more about your ad choices.

EP 073: Slowing Down In A World Of "Hurry Up" with Lara Casey

We live in a world of right now, hurry up, and instant gratification. A world that tells us to stay busy and fill our calendars, to set meet our goals instantly, and rush the seasons. But we don’t have to! We can go against the grain and slow down. We don’t have to set goals that need to be met in an unrealistic time frame. Instead, we can grow slow, be intentional with our time, and just breathe. As Lara Casey says, “it is always worth it to take the five minutes. Yes, it will add up over time. No, you will not see the fruit as fast but the fruit will be sweeter in the end.” Lara Casey is the founder of Cultivate What Matters as well as Laracasey.com. She's such a light and is so good at challenging others to redirect their focus and minds to right where they need to be for the day.

Ep 072: 5 Super Honest Things I'm Afraid to Share with You

With the growth of my podcast and my business, I have come to this point where I really want to make sure I can be myself. I want to let that guard down and be who I am without fear of what people will think or say about me! It's easy to accidentally misunderstand somebody and think of them as a perfect being with all these beautiful photos on Instagram. And recently, I've been feeling a lot more comfortable with being vulnerable and it's making me more authentic, which I hope is making you guys feel more connected to me. I hope this episode just breaks it down and makes me real. I'm here with you. My kids are young. I'm still figuring this out. I'm just always reworking things and trying to be the best version of myself so that I can help you guys and connect with you. I don't want to just teach you things and make you think I'm perfect, my family has it all together, and I have it all figured it. Because that is not true! And so, cheers to a lot more connectivity, a lot more honesty, a lot more fun social media posts, fun podcast episodes that are still super helpful, but help you see me as human.

Ep 070: 6 Things I No Longer Purchase Since Becoming A Minimalist

As you know, I am all about simplifying things and making things better and lighter, making things work better for me and the season that I'm in right now. And through that, I have been getting really intentional with the things that I'm buying. Really questioning what's coming into my home and (like Nate Berkus says) “becoming a ruthless editor” of what I allow to take up space in the space that I live in. That matters and that's something to guard! My goal is just to encourage you and show you that there's so much out there we don't really need to be buying. To encourage you to question why am I getting this or why am I buying anything not just things on this list. I really hope this episode will inspire you and make you think a little bit!

EP 069: The Benefits of Early Mornings For Parents with Lindsay McCarthy

I wasn’t always a morning person. In fact, it wasn’t until I discovered The Miracle Morning that I decided to ditch my night owl tendencies and start to wake up earlier. Morning routines really just set the tone for the rest of the day. If you wake up and you're already feeling hurried, that energy takes you throughout the whole day and you never really feel like you catch up. But if you start the day intentionally and say, “these are the six things that I'm going to do to start my day” and get those done, you already feel so accomplished. You feel like you can take on anything for the whole rest of the day. Lindsay McCarthy wrote her book, Miracle Morning For Parents and Families because once she really started implementing a morning routine, she saw how much it worked and all the benefits that came from it. And she has just really taken charge of her mornings for her family, not just for herself. After speaking with her, I think I'm going to start some “miracle morning” stuff with my kids as well and not keep it just for myself. I hope you take action to do the same for your family too!

Ep 067: How I Simplified Meal Planning + Grocery Shopping

Just being honest, this is not my favorite topic. I have an adult-long-life struggle with the whole shebang of preparing food and planning to eat. But, something I have learned is that there's so much power in your thoughts and the way you look at something. So when it comes to meal planning and grocery shopping, I started to look at it as a positive thing and something that I get to totally bless my family with. I also realized that with everything going on in my life, I have no choice but to meal plan and food prep. It works best for me and my family! Trust me, I don’t have it all together. We still eat out, order in, and all the other things that happen in the business of life. But I have found these tips truly simplify my grocery shopping and meal planning that make food prep so much easier and enjoyable!

Ep 066: How To Raise Minimalist Kids

Minimalist kids are kids who are content. Kids who know how to play, kids who know how to talk and have relationships. They’re not glued to screens all day. They spend a lot of time playing outside using their  imaginations, conversing with their friends or siblings if they have them. And honestly, they enjoy more of a 1970’s sort of childhood than a 2018 one. If we are going to choose to live a minimalist lifestyle, then we are raising our kids to do the same. That means we are shaping the next generation and how amazing is it that we have a chance to break the over-consumeristic cycle? I love that I get to do that for my kids and hope that you find encouragement to do the same from this episode!

Ep 065: The Beginner's Guide to A Minimalist Home

How do you feel when you walk your home? Do you feel happy? Calm? Overwhelmed? Angry? Depressed? Resentful? Blessed? Do you feel like you just don't even have time to care about how you feel? Because I've been there. And now I want you to answer this: How do you want to feel when you walk into your home? Do your answers to those two questions match? If not, I want to help you get to the place where they match and you feel good walking into your home. There is a connection between minimalism and motherhood. We have to move beyond organization and dive deep into decluttering to experience the joy that comes with minimalism. Once we do that, we can truly enjoy motherhood more! I promise I'm not going to offer you some kind of ridiculous cleaning schedule or a set of tasks to check off every day, because that’s unrealistic. I am here to give you something that will last - I am giving you the gift of less so that you can have more.

Ep 064: Teaching Kids Kindness with The Ruth Experience

We all desire for our kids to be kind. We want them to know what respect is and understand how to genuinely treat others with that respect. And that can be a tough thing to teach our kids, especially when we look at society today and see all the bullying and disrespect in the world. Fostering kindness starts in the home, between parents and among siblings. Once that kindness is established, kids will step outside of their little bubbles and respect others with a greater understanding of what it means. They can grow in kindness towards their friends, as well as those they have differences with. And it is such a beautiful thing to watch them grow in! It's like planting a seed and then it grows. Kristin, Kendra, and Julie are the founders of The Ruth Experience,  which is all about living out authentic faith, fostering positive community, intentional living, and also living really generously. They teach women how to be kind to others and how they can teach their kids to be kind. It's not really about the acts of kindness or even what it's doing for the other person that you're affecting. It's that it's changing your mindset to get into the habit of just always having that “giving” state of mind that will become apart of your kids lives too!

Motherhood is chaotic, no matter which way you slice it. We could all use a helping hand from someone a few steps ahead of us. I’ve been a mom for nine years now.

Ep 062: My Battle with Emotional Eating + Food Addiction

Emotional eating and food addiction are just like any other addictions. But the biggest difference is that food is placed in front of us multiple times a day, because our body needs food as fuel. I admit I struggled with emotional eating, emotional bingeing and food addiction. I used food to fill a gap in my heart and in my life. I idolized food and it started to run my life. But now i can confidently tell you that I am winning this battle with emotional eating and food addiction. Everybody has struggles. This is mine. And if this is yours, I’m right there with you. So, let’s talk about it because if we don’t we feel alone and feel like we can’t conquer this thing but I know we can!

Ep 061: 10 Ways Minimalism Helps the Super Busy Family

Motherhood is a lot of things, but boring is not one of them. As my kids get older, we get into schooling, and realize the activities that interest them, I find that my life just gets fuller and fuller. I really enjoy having a full schedule. Other than the occasional need for a week off, I truly thrive when my calendar is full and my days are packed with a life lived on purpose. There’s a big difference in being too busy and in simply having a full life. Embrace where you’re at and if you find yourself overwhelmed, find ways to simplify wherever you can. Minimalism is one way to do this. It kept me afloat and simplified my to do list in a very chaotic, uncontrollable time of my life when babies dictated everything, all the way down to how much sleep I got. No matter how many kids you have and what season of motherhood you’re in, minimalism lifts a huge burden you may not even know you’ve been carrying. It’s such a gift and is especially helpful for the family with a full calendar.

EP 060: Prayer + Soul Care as a Busy Mom with Valerie Woerner

As moms, it is easy to make excuses when it comes to taking care of our soul. However, when we have little kids or are in a super busy season, that's the time that we honestly need it the most. We are constantly pouring out and don’t realize that we need poured into. And the more we make excuses now, the harder it is going to be to get back to taking care of our souls. Val Woerner is the owner of ValMarie Paper, where she creates journals and tools that are really help “cut through the noise” of everyday life and find fullness of life in the presence of the Lord. Even if you're busy, even if you're a mom of little ones, no matter your season. And I want to encourage you by telling you that whatever you have to give now is more than enough.

Communication is something Brian and I get asked about a lot. We don’t have it down, we are far from perfect at it, and we certainly are not experts. But we have learned and grown a lot over the years. One of the biggest areas our communication has evolved is understanding one another’s personality type and the way we communicate best. Be encouraged - communication will never be perfect, but I think what matters is that it is existent, a priority, and is always growing.

Ep 056: Slowing Down with Nichole Nordeman

Chaos is a normal part of life, especially as moms. And it is important that we remember to slow down in the chaos and not wish it all away. You know, those moments spent begging for your little one to walk or talk, to sleep through the night, to hurry up and do the next thing. Because there will come a day when your kids are grown up and you will wish for those moments again. The moments you won’t ever get back; the moments you tried so hard to rush through. Nichole Nordeman is known for her music as a Christian artist but she is also a mother of 2 and author. Her book, Slow Down: Embracing the Everyday Moments of Motherhood, is such a calm and easy read. It's one of those books you’d want to have on your bookshelf to reference here and there when you need a reminder to really be present and just be with your kids. Her mantra is to lower the bar of expectations we place on our lives and to slow down, embracing the everyday moments of life. *Note, if you aren’t a mom, this episode is still for you! There is SO much wisdom in this episode that we can all use when it comes to learning to slow down and enjoying the everyday moments of life.

I am letting you in on some of the behind-the-scenes, funny, interesting, and inspiring stories.

Ep 054: The Secret Thing I Do To Actually Reach My Goals

If you have listened to my podcast or followed me for any amount of time you know that I love setting goals and I am really intentional about reaching my goals! When I sit down before New Years, I write out one word that I want to focus on for the next year and write my goals around that word, then I jump into the year working hard to achieve those goals. But - here is the big secret - I don’t forget about them throughout the year! I think it's really easy to abandon your goals and your intent for the New Year once it's not the New Year anymore. It’s easy to not think about it again until the next New Year comes around and everyone starts to get reflective again. We fall into this pattern of life really happening and goals are forgotten. The difference between people who actually reach goals and people who just set resolutions is how often they come back to their goals to check in on them and how often they reflect on what their intention and purpose was for the year. So, by revisiting your goals throughout the year, you are setting a pace for yourself to actually achieve your goals and be intentional with your focus for the year.

EP 053 Defining & Creating Happiness with Gretchen Rubin

How do you define happiness? What are ways that you find happiness? You don’t need to spend a lot of time, money or energy to find happiness. Not everyone can uproot their lives and travel the world - most of us have kids who need us at home! Simple changes to your daily habits, a deeper investment into the relationships in your life, or putting self care as a priority are all ways that you can boost your happiness daily. You just have to decide that you are going to find ways to be happier right in the middle of usual. Which is why I brought Gretchen Rubin on the show for this specific topic!

EP 051: Eating Well + Exercising in Motherhood with Amanda Wilson

How am I supposed to be a mom who keeps humans alive all day, stays up all night with a baby, and focuses on living a healthy lifestyle? That sounds so overwhelming! Wellness, exercise and eating well should work with you, not against you. It all should fit into your life, not overwhelm you! And wellness looks different from season to season.We cannot put a standard on wellness that we expect to work in every season of our life. If we focus on obsessing over wellness we are putting more stress on ourselves, our kids and our husband because we are trying to squish a certain standard into something that's not going to fit. Amanda Wilson is a well of wisdom when it comes to the mom life version of exercise, health, fitness, wellness and carving out that time for yourself. She strives to help others relieve the pressure of a wellness by sharing simplified approaches to living a healthy lifestyle.

EP 050: How Minimalism Can Steal Your Joy

I've spent the last six years uncovering something that changed my whole life. And when I first started, I didn't know what it was called or even that it was an actual thing. I was just a desperate girl trying to find a way out of survival mode because I believed in my heart that I was created for more. And that thing, of course, is minimalism. The philosophy of less that comes with minimalism took me from overwhelmed, depressed and fighting, and barely getting by to loving motherhood, thriving in my role and being the mom that I always wanted to be.  For me, minimalism is about simplifying what I have in my home so that have the time and joy to focus on my family, offering my kids and my husband the best of me, not what's left over after I pick up, wash a thousand dishes, fold six hours’ worth of laundry and reorganize all the toys again. Minimalism is all about where my focus is. Not how many items I have, not how many pairs of jeans I have, not how minimalist I appear. I don't want to deprive myself of things for the sake of “being a minimalist.” There are things that bring me joy, make me happy, and fill my life. It's more time in my day, more time for what matters, more time for pursuing what lights me up and makes me feel alive.

EP 047: How To Make Birthdays Special Without The Huge Party

We celebrate birthdays big time in our house! But most of the time it is in nontraditional ways. We make birthdays special without having a big party. And there's something sweet, intimate and special about doing it that way. We can get into this mindset of “if you're not having a big party then you didn't really celebrate” and that's just not true. You can totally make birthdays special without the big party! There's nothing against having parties, just keep it simple so that you enjoy it. It’s a big day. It's the celebration of the day you became a mom, either for the first time or the fifth time. It’s the celebration of a new life and it matters. We don’t need to perform or impress, we need to celebrate!

Ep 046: How To Pull Out Of A Midday "Funk"

You know that feeling when you fall into a funk midday. Maybe the morning sucked. Maybe it just hasn't been a great day and you fall into this place of “blah.” All you really want to do is eat candy, sit down and Netflix hard. You feel like this and you really don’t know why. As moms, we have things that really need to get done. We have to make sure everything is functioning. We've got a lot on our plates and it's important that we're energized and ready to take it on. But sometimes when we're just not feeling it and if we give in to those feelings, things may fall apart and our family will definitely feel that.

EP 045: Body Confidence with Jenna Kutcher

We often look at the media and other people to tell us what we need to be and how we need to look. But in doing that, we create this false narrative in our minds that we aren’t enough, that our bodies aren’t beautiful, and that we aren’t worthy. And these narratives are far from the truth! We should be confident in our bodies … they can do incredible things! Body confidence isn’t just waking up one day and being like, “I am perfect, I am whole, I am complete.” It's really looking at those limiting beliefs that we've had in our brain and paying attention to that dialogue that we're having with ourselves every single day. Body confidence is about honoring your body, fueling it and not punishing it. Jenna Kutcher is an entrepreneur, wedding photographer, and uses her social media platform to discuss personal things, like marriage, body image, and more. She recently went viral for a vulnerable and honest post about her own body confidence journey. She is amazing at wearing what she wants and not what other people think she should wear based on her size. She's beautiful, confident and I hope she inspires you on your own journey to body confidence.

EP 043: ADD/ADHD + Motherhood with Chelsea Reinking

Minimalism has so many benefits. You hear me talk about them all the time! But one of the benefits that I haven’t talked about yet is the positive impact minimalism can have on ADD. Living with ADD amplifies the feeling of being overwhelmed by a never-ending to do list and expecting perfection 100% of the time. But when you clear your space, you free your mind of striving too hard. Believe it or not, physical clutter adds to the struggle of being able to focus! This issue is super close to my heart and it was a true honor to sit and talk with fellow-mama Chelsea Reinking. Her journey with ADD and motherhood is empowering! Whether you struggle with ADD or not, I believe you will find great value in listening to this episode.

Staying close to your spouse is hard. Especially if you’re balancing work and a million kids. There is no sugar coating it! But when we know the purpose of our marriage, it becomes easier to make our marriage a priority. It is about communication, setting a vision, having those tough conversations, and creating time for intimacy. Sure, the arguments will happen! But it is how we respond in them that matters. Jennifer Smith is a wife and mama to 3 little ones (and another on the way!). Alongside her husband, she provides tons of resources for married couples navigating hardships in their marriage. Jen and her husband are honest and open with the things they have been through and strive to provide hope for those walking in the same challenges.

Ep 039: 13 Ways to Bring Peace into Your Home

Everybody wants a peaceful home. I don’t think anybody would say, “I don’t want a peaceful home.” There’s two different sides of a peaceful home. One is intentionally setting your home up to be peaceful. But then sometimes, there is just stress. How can you, in the middle of a stressful day or tense afternoon, create a peaceful atmosphere? In this episode we’re going to cover both types of bringing peace into your home. I have worked really hard to set up a home that feels peaceful. In the way that I decorate. The way it’s laid out. The way I act as a mom. I have also come up with a handful of in-the-middle-of-stress peacemakers. Take a step back and ask yourself, “How do you feel when you walk into your home?” Take note of it. What could you change? What is it that you don't like? You should like the way you feel when you walk in the house!

Ep 038: Compassionate + Effective Parenting with Wendy Snyder

Like adults, kids need to feel like they belong. They need to feel powerful. They need to feel loved unconditionally, and they need to feel like they're valued. Compassionate + Effective Parenting (or Positive Parenting) is a style of parenting that highlights our kids’ needs so that they feel powerful, loved, and valued. This parenting style helps us understand that when kids’ needs aren't met, it comes out as misbehavior. Misbehavior equals communication. When our kids are misbehaving, they're not just out to get us. They're not trying to tick us off. They are not trying to be naughty. Is it a part of their development to push boundaries? Absolutely. However, when we see it as communication and we try to help them communicate that in a healthy way, parenthood becomes more joyful. It becomes more about connection over correction. It becomes more about relationships and strengthening our day-to-day interaction with our kids. Wendy Snyder is a Positive Parenting Coach who dedicates her life to helping parents navigate parenting through compassion, because it does beautiful things for families, and it does amazing things for kids too. She brings so much wisdom to the table in this episode! Enjoy! Everything I talk about in this episode can be found here: http://alliecasazza.com/shownotes/038 Learn more about your ad choices.

EP 037: Benefits of Minimalism for Mothers

When people think of minimalism, I think most of them picture one couch in the living room, cold white walls, no TV, no toys, and plants hanging by the kitchen sink. That's not the point at all. Living with less doesn’t mean being deprived. It means looking at what is creating clutter and stress in your life. Recently, Brian was away on a trip for a week. During that week, I was reminded how much I love the idea of minimalism and how much it has changed my life. It has given me the ability to take a deep breath and enjoy life more. And remember, minimalism is embracing the idea of less and questioning what you own and allow to take up your space and time. That is the key to changing your life.

EP 36: Why you are Always Enough and Never Too Much with Jess Connolly + Hayley Morgan

Do you feel like you’re caught up in a war within your own self that you are never enough, yet too much when you are being your best self? I think we have all struggled with feeling that we’re not enough yet we are too much at the same time in many, many different areas of our life. Outside of this war within ourselves, there is also that same feeling from woman to woman. It’s like there’s a war amongst women of who’s better at this? Who’s good at that? I’m trying to be it all, do it all, and it’s exhausting, pointless and it’s not what we are called to. Jess Connolly + Hayley Morgan join me in a raw + honest conversation around how we are always enough and never too much. How we are called to live from a place of confidence in who we are, while encouraging others to do the same. Jess + Hayley are good friends who share a passion to lead other women in pursuing Christ and abundant life. They are mothers and business owners, and they co-authored the book Wild + Free, as well as their new book, Always Enough, Never Too Much.

BONUS 03: How "Enough" Lists Have Changed My Life

An enough list outlines what is enough in your life so that you can focus on what is important and determine what is excess. It can be applied to every area of your life; from business to family, your health to your home. Enough lists cause you to ask yourself, what is “enough” in this area of my life? What is it that I'm called to do in this area of my life? When it comes to being a wife, what is it that I'm called to do here? When it comes to running my business, what am I really called to do here? Basically, these lists are a list of things that are the bare minimum. And as you focus on the “enough” in your life, you begin to see what is overwhelming you. Having my “enough list” has totally changed my life and empowered me to make solid decisions and I hope you find the same empowerment as you create your own enough lists!

EP: 032 Kids Who Rebel vs Kids Who Don't Rebel feat. Rebecca Lindenbach

Rebellion is seen as a cultural norm, but Rebecca Lindenbach begs to differ. Rebellion is not a mistake, it is a habitual behavior pattern. Yes, bad things can happen, but that doesn’t mean there isn't hope. In her book, Why I Didn’t Rebel, she shows how rebellion is not unavoidable and how it is often misunderstood. She offers incredible research partnered with her own story and the stories of others. Her foundation stems from reasons over rules, giving parents a new paradigm for raising kids who don’t go off the rails. Because rules create a power imbalance while reasons cultivate a healthy parenting relationship. Her book is the best parenting book I have read, so I know you will enjoy this episode!

Those are all questions we can ask ourselves as we start to live an uncluttered life. Bringing minimalism into these areas of our lives is so important and so healing.

Ep 027: What Happens When You Take the Toys Away?

A big part of what I do and talk about is toys and their effects on children. This is something that I have become really passionate about as I have evolved in doing what it is that I do. I have gone through lots of different seasons with toys with my kids. When it comes down to it, kids play much better with less options. Scientifically, their little brains can’t handle all those options. We think we are doing them a favor by giving them all these options and providing them with all the toys we didn’t have as kids, but really it is harming them. It is super difficult for their little brains to process all that and to make a choice from all of those options. There is nothing depriving to your kids about giving them the gift of less material things. Children thrive on less. And what a gift that is for us as parents, not only financially, but also knowing that you are not going to scar your kids by removing some of this excess or getting rid of some of the stuff, the toys!

If you have been on the internet for any amount of time, you have probably experienced negativity in some form. Whether it is directly toward you or you see it on someone else’s posts. There is negativity out there big time. It seems anytime you share something, someone will find a way to be offended by it or they will have something negative or irritating to say about it. Negativity is never going to stop. It will always be there. But instead of trying to avoid it, we need to speak out truth. We need to live our best life and live how we are called to live. We need to set ourselves free from the weight of the opinions of other. Because when you stop letting negativity affect you, you’ve won.
