Episode 21: Carly and Kathleen interview Audrey (Guire) Simmons on her perspective, as the oldest biological kid, of the adoption of a sibling group of four from Poland.

Audrey offers unique and introspective opinions and stories of experiencing the adoption as an 11-year-old. We love her perspectives on visiting the orphanage in Poland and how the trip impacted her life. We also love her perspectives on how her new siblings impacted her life.

DISCLAIMER: We left this episode un-edited! This episode was recorded in a house with 4 adults and 9 children under the age of 7. We got some comedic interruptions on this day, so we decided to give you a taste of what it would be like to record a podcast inside of a daycare. We hope you enjoy! We sure did!

Kathleen and Jessica talk about moving out of your comfort zone and pursuing God-sized dreams. They talk about pivot points and seasons of life. Each pivot point sends us in a new direction. Do we do it afraid or do we remain where we are. Jessica talks about opening Soar, her fitness studio and why she finally took the leap. Kathleen talks about her seasons of God-sized dreams, children, adoption, homeschooling and her current season- The Whole House and writing. Jessica speaks of a death of a loved one made her rethink her current path and become a pivot point. Kathleen shares a similar story. Grab a cup of coffee! Get ready to pursue your God-sized dream with The Whole House!

Episode 19: Amerey, Ashley, Carly, Kathleen, and Lori talk about Mother's Day (from a mom perspective). Not that we have forgotten about the women who gave us life, but we wanted to discuss what the holiday means to us as moms ourselves.

We talk a little about our perfect Mother's Day and setting realistic goals for celebrating! We even share Mother's Day fails (in case you thought our lives were perfect)! We encourage you to find a way to incorporate a little bit of self-care and self-love into your holiday this year!

Episode 16: Kathleen sits down with Ciarra McCartney! (If this name sounds familiar, that's because it is! You can find an interview with her mom, Molly, on Episode 12!)

Ciarra McCartney is a teenager and budding author who was adopted through the foster care system. She shares some of her realities of growing up in a broken home, placements in foster homes, and finally being adopted.

Episode 15: Amerey, Carly, and Kathleen talk about some of the ups and downs and dealings of being a young mom.

We think every mother will encounter moments where they will have to speak up for themselves or else be misunderstood/taken advantage of/manipulated. We share some (spoiler alert: truthful and raw) stories of times when we have had to advocate for ourselves or our babies, with family members, medical professionals, or strangers. We've been there, and we want to encourage you in those possibly tough situations.

So grab a cup of coffee! Wash those dishes! Walk that trail! And thank you so much for joining us here at The Whole House!

Episode 13: Amerey and Kathleen talk about learning how to understand and work well with toddlers, little kids, and kids with lower emotional ages.

Do you always know how to express your feelings? We, as adults, can't always answer yes, so how can we expect it out of our littles??

We aren't preaching from perfection, we just want to offer tips to helping little kids with big emotions regulate and adjust their behaviors appropriately.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!
