Episode 077: The Power of Service in Your Family Culture with Monica Tanner

About Monica

Monica Tanner is a wife and mother of 4 amazingly talented and wonderful children.  She was born and raised in Dallas, Texas.  She went to college at the University of Texas at Austin and received a bachelor’s degree in sociology and child development.  Shortly after graduating from college, She met the man of my dreams and they moved to Boise, Idaho to raise their family.  Monica has been a stay at home mom and small business owner for 15 years and she is super excited to share some of the lessons she’s learned with you through her podcast. On the Brighter Side is a podcast for anyone who is ready to up-level their lives in the area of physical, mental, emotional or spiritual health.  Monica will discuss real life lessons she has learned as well as interviewing others who are living their lives on the brighter side. She also started the non-profit, Just Do Some Good last year. All of this keeps her busy and on her toes.

I enjoyed talking with Monica about the impact she is creating in your community about the importance of service!

Monica recognized that the youth in her community were getting attention and positive reinforcement for doing stupid things on social media! She decided to do something about it!

With Just Do Some Good, Monica is creating a movement around service with the youth in her community to help them recognize the importance of service, and to use their experiences to lift their social media environment by posting about their good experiences with service!

You can learn more about Monica’s foundation at www.justdosomegood.org and follow her on Facebook @JustDoSomeGood. Look for Monica on Instagram @monitanner1.

Monica also hosts her podcast, On The Brighter Side wherever you listen to podcasts, and you can check out my interview with her here: “Creating Your Own Family Culture.”

About the author, Jodi

I live in Richmond, Virginia with my husband, Michael, and our four young kids. We homeschool, and work remotely, so I guess we may take this on the road some day! I have a bachelor's degree from George Mason University in Health Promotion Studies, but I attended five different universities before finally finishing while I was expecting my third baby! I'm a returned missionary from the Hawaii Honolulu Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm sort of a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none, but I do enjoy reading personal development and parenting books, finding new ways to enjoy exercising, and learning more about being an entrepreneur.
