I will be launching my very own podcast about home and family culture!! Soon I will be airing a description of what inspired me to pursue this topic. I will be interviewing parents, educators, coaches, and leaders about how the culture in our home and families influences the hearts, minds, spirits, and bodies of our children. I was inspired by kids who are making it, and I wondered what was different about their homes and families that has made their success possible. I’m inspired by parents who seem to be raising stellar kids. Is that just a front, or is there something different going on there?
I want to know what is going on in our homes and families that is creating an intentional culture. When I’m talking about home and family culture, I’m talking about what you default to as a family. It’s the tone you use with each other when you speak. It’s the activities you are most comfortable with. It’s conversation, discussion, relationships. It’s traditions. It’s beliefs and customs. It’s routines and expectations. It’s roles and responsibilities. It’s attitudes about and toward each other and the environment. Mantras. Mission statements. And I want to know how these cultures are shaping our nation.
I’m so excited to get started on this journey! I hope you will join me!
