Getting your kids on board with any lifestyle change can be challenging. Especially from the mother’s perspective…the mom guilt is so real! And because as the mother, you’re usually the one to lead or go first with a change in the family, we have to set the tone in a strong + positive way.

In this episode I’m going to share with you how keeping the lines communication open with your kids, how to speak words of abundance over them during this journey, how to make all of these changes fun, and most importantly…how to do this as a team!


In this episode, I share about:

  • How to keep the lines of communication open with your kids

  • How speaking words of abundance, gratitude, + positivity can make a huge difference

  • Why we’re raising our kids against the norms of society + in an old fashioned way

  • How we encourage our kids to handle their money

  • How to work through contentment with your kids

  • How to get your kids excited + make this journey fun for you + them

  • Why it’s important to do this journey as a team

  • The benefits of a debt-free journey that pour over into every aspect of your family’s life

Memorable Quotes:

“They’re people too, and this journey is part of their story too.”

“You’ve got to let your kids in on this dream.”

“I don’t want their money language and that voice in the back of their head to be negative…just like I don’t want their body image voice to be negative.”

“Show them that we’re a team and that we’re in this together. That is going to build the bond in your family like you cannot imagine.”
