Today’s guest is my friend and clinical psychologist, Rachel Bailey. Rachel has over 10 years experience working with children, teens, and young adults – and their parents. In this two-part episode, we dive into redefining and normalizing the parenting experience. During this first episode, we discuss Rachel’s approach to parenting, why it’s okay to love your kids but not love parenting, actual words to say and strategies to use during difficult parenting issues like tantrums, our own parenting foibles, and more.

Rachel and I get honest and real about our own “yuck” (Rachel’s great term for how we act “bad” when we feel bad and one of my favorite concepts of hers!) and how we feel better and happier as parents when we let go of needing to be perfect.

We also mention Rachel’s Parenting Academy during our conversation. You can find out more about the Academy and how Rachel can support you here.

RXBAR is a whole food protein bar. What does that mean? Our bars are made with 100% whole ingredients. We want to be transparent and up front with our customers, which is why we label the core ingredients (egg whites, dates and nuts) on the front of the package and the ingredients that make up texture and taste on the back (100% real cacao, coconut, etc.). Beyond being a go-to snack that checks off a number of nutritional boxes, RXBARs actually taste delicious. We found creating a bar made from real, whole food ingredients actually tastes better than anything out there. We don’t need the fillers, the additives, the chemicals or the added sugar.
Get 25% off your first order at rxbar.com/bagley. That’s 16 delicious bars for less than $20 with free shipping!
I’m thrilled to welcome Dorena Williamson back to the podcast to discuss her new book, Thoughtfull: Discovering the Unique Gifts in Each of Us. I interviewed Dorena a few weeks ago about her first book, Colorfull, and I loved that conversation, so I was eager to have her back on the show to continue our conversation. On this show, we discussed the inspiration behind Thoughtfull, talking to kids about differently-abled people, teaching kids about the inherent value of all people, and the importance of being thoughtful. We also talked about bully and talking to kids about how to address bullying.

A deeply personal memoir, An Outlaw Makes It Home, is an odyssey, a journey out, and a return home. Pulling no punches, this candid, compelling and raucous spiritual adventure story, follows Eli Jaxon-Bear on his journey from underground revolutionary to spiritual awakening.

Eli takes us with him from the civil rights marches in Alabama to his time as a federal fugitive during the Vietnam War, from the
uncharted outback of Peru to a monastery in Japan, an initiation into a Sufi clan in Marrakesh, and the streets of India in his quest for a final
teacher. It is here that he meets Papaji, ultimately ending his search for freedom and finally finding true love and fulfillment.

Can sex, drugs and revolution lead to a life of true love and lasting fulfillment? An Outlaw Makes It Home answers this while showing us
the tests and traps that confront all of us as we navigate through life in the search for happiness.

In this episode we discuss Eli’s journey, finding happiness and what happiness means, and his work at the Leela Foundation. We also touch on the enneagram and finding our true selves.

Money can be a huge source of conflict for couples. When couples don’t see eye to eye on saving and spending, their relationship suffers. Scott and Bethany Palmer, a.k.a. The Money Couple, discovered this money disconnect after years of working with couples and set out to change the conversation. Together they created The Five Money Personalities to help couples learn more about themselves and each other.

In this honest conversation about money, Scott and Bethany explain the five money personalities and how couples can work to understand each other. We also talk about money mistakes, painless ways to save, and stopping money fights before they start.

Today’s guest is Julie Reisler, author and Life Designer, and she is the founder and CEO of Empowered Living, a Life Design and personal development company. While Julie has a Master’s Degree in Coaching and more than 12 certifications in health and wellbeing, her Masters could have been in people pleasing and crappy self esteem. Author of, Get a PhD in YOU: A Course in Miraculous Self-Discovery, Julie authentically shares the extensive personal-growth wisdom that came from her own struggles with body image, relationships, and feeling “not enough.”

Julie is also in the short documentary, Hungry For More, where she shares openly about her journey with emotional overeating to finding out what really makes you full. Julie is a multi-time TEDx speaker, meditation teacher on the popular app, Insight Timer, and faculty member at Georgetown University’s coaching program, Julie is enamored with helping you to master your inner world so you can master your outer world. Julie’s purpose and passion is to guide you to become your you-est you! She is a mama of two, step-mama of one, happily remarried, and in love with her very imperfect life.

I loved this chat with Julie because we both shared our struggles and how we work through our insecurities. We openly discuss perfectionism, people pleasing, and feeling unworthy, and I know this honest conversation will help others feel less alone. Also, we talk about her book, Get a Ph.D in You and how we all can come to know our truest selves.

Podcast #259 // Debbie Augenthaler on Grief, Transformation, and a New Beginning

July 3rd, 2018 Posted by Podcast, The Sarah R. Bagley Podcast 0 thoughts on “Podcast #259 // Debbie Augenthaler on Grief, Transformation, and a New Beginning”

Debbie Augenthaler is a psychotherapist in private practice in New York City. Her husband, Jim, died suddenly in her arms when she was only 36 years old. He had been healthy and vibrant – the doctors compared the probability of his death by heart attack to being struck by lightning. That lightning strike ended her life as she knew it and thus began the “baptism by fire” that brought her to her new future.

You Are Not Alone is the book she wishes she’d had when she was grieving. With the connection of a shared experience, Debbie guides the reader through grief to transformation and a new beginning.
In this show Debbie and I discuss loss, healing, and her spiritual journey that led her to realize love never dies. Debbie shares what helped her through her grief, how we can help those grieving, and practical thoughts on rebuilding your life after a loss. I loved this conversation with Debbie because we both openly shared our experiences with loss and discusses the importance of letting ourselves grieve our own way. Grief is weird and complicated and never really goes away, but Debbie shares how we can learn to live alongside grief and remember that love never dies.

Marc and Angel Chernoff know a thing or two about rebuilding after hitting bottom. In 2006, the husband and wife team were struggling personally and professionally. Almost simultaneously, they lost two loved ones (one to suicide, the other to illness) and their primary source of income in the wake of the recession. Suddenly, life as they knew it came to a screeching halt and they were forced to reinvent themselves. They began documenting their journey on a blog, committing themselves to doing this daily task to keep them motivated and positive.

The result? Marc & Angel Hack Life, recognized by Forbes as “one of the most popular personal development blogs,” with more than a million engaged readers each month. What began as a small, daily habit blossomed into a successful website and full-blown career as professional life coaches.

In their new book, Getting Back to Happy: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Reality, and Turn Your Trials Into Triumphs, Marc and Angel share their empowering advice for facing struggles. In this episode, we discuss many strategies for changing mindset patterns, what happiness really means, the pressure to feel happy all the time, and ways to get unstuck. This was a fun, uplifting, and inspiring episode with lots of take aways on true happiness.

She and her husband, Dr. Chris Williamson, planted Strong Tower Bible Church in Nashville, Tennessee and have spent more than twenty years ministering to its richly diverse faith community.

In this episode Dorena shares her life in ministry, from her life as a minister’s daughter to a minister’s wife. She discusses how she made her role as first lady in her church her own, rather than copying those around her or feeling like she had to present herself a certain way. We also talked about Dorena’s new book, ColorFull, a beautiful story about celebrating our differences. Dorena shared her inspiration behind the book, her thoughts on how to talk to kids about race, and what she hopes kids and parents take away from this story.
