Mindful Mama Movement Podcast
About This Show
Welcome to the Mindful Mama Movement Podcast. Shannon Kinney-Duh, creator of A Free Spirit Life, and Ashley Walburn, owner of Home Holistic, are bringing you The Mindful Mama Movement - the podcast, community and retreats that empower mamas, encourage authentic living and celebrate what it means to live an inspired life.
Join us as we bring women from around the world in all stages of motherhood on a journey of learning how to trust ourselves, how to listen to our intuition, how to let go and forgive and how to embrace imperfection in the mess of life. We are practicing mothering from a place of presence, creativity, humor and wisdom. This is a place to be nurtured and cared for while you nurture and care for others.

Episode 13: How Creativity Nurtures Your Soul, Helps You Embrace Mistakes & Sparks Imagination with Becky Pashia & Noelle Stoffel
5 days ago
In today’s show, Episode 13, we are speaking with not one, but two amazing and creative women. Becky Pashia and Noelle Stoffel are incredibly talented, and professional artists. Becky is the mama to three boys, ages 13, 15 and 22, and Noelle is a mama to two girls, ages six and nine. We’re so excited to speak with both Becky and Noelle about the role creativity plays in not only the lives of children, but in the lives us mamas as well. They feel art can be a great example for life. Making messes is part of making art. It’s important for you to take time for yourself to spend on your hobbies and relax. There’s not one specific and right way to do things. Becky and Noelle both stress the importance of being truly present in your child’s life and noticing the little things about them to help further their creativity and interests. We also discuss whether or not they believe it’s too late for adults to learn to paint or be creative, why Becky feels frustration and boredom are critical components of creativity, and how becoming moms effected their creative lives. Becky and Noelle inspire us to encourage our kids to make gifts for family and friends instead of buying them and then take the time to give the gifts in creative ways, like a treasure hunt. It’s because of this that Becky and Noelle actually created two apps that help children learn how to do this virtually in hopes it will carry over into real life. Both of the apps, One Present, Please and Pass a Present, are available in the App Store and are linked to below. Both Becky and Noelle are members of the Mindful Mama Movement Facebook group and will stop by to answers any questions you may have. Join us in the group to get inspired!
