Our kids pick up on everything we do. They notice how we treat ourselves, how we treat each other and how we treat them. If you take care of yourself physically and mentally, they are more than likely to mimic you and understand the importance of self-care. If they observe you being a good spouse, they will appreciate how they should be treated when it’s their turn to be a spouse. So, put away your phone, sit down with your children and ask them well thought-out open-ended questions they can answer with spirit.
This week’s guest, Larry Hagner of the Good Dad Project, guides us through his journey and shares the important lessons he has learned by trying to be the father his kids deserve.

Do you ever wonder how some people can take blow after blow and still have the strength to be positive? Our guest, Sarah Plummer, tells us exactly how she does it. As a female marine, she felt the drive to excel physically and fell victim to physical abuse. She made headlines with the part she played in the Military Justice Improvement Act, and her book, Just Roll with it, recently got to bookstore shelves. She promotes healthy living through yoga retreats and draws from her experiences to help clients attain desired fitness levels.

The human body is a machine designed to heal itself. It is capable of producing exactly what your cells need if given the right fuel (aka the proper nutrients). But before you put any food in your mouth, you need to feed your head. Positive thoughts and confidence can simplify your new lifestyle change. Allow your body to tell you what it wants and needs. There is a movement afoot to prevent chronic illnesses by way of proper nutrition. But until that takes hold, you need to look after yourself and your loved ones with activities that bring you joy, and with foods that empower your cells. .

In this refreshingly open and honest conversation with Shaun T, we explore the beauty of believing in ourselves. Shaun experienced mental and physical abuse from an authority figure when he was young. He knew this type of environment is toxic, so he decided to head to LA to become a dancer. He now encourages people to be the best they can be by enhancing their lives with workout programs designed to uplift the body and the soul. He makes his decisions based on love and leads by example. “We only have one life to live,” he says and he intends to make the most of it.
