YMB #97: Choosing the Best for your Morning Time: A Conversation with Cindy Rollins
Today I am joined by my Morning Time mentor Cindy Rollins. We meant to talk about trying to whittle down all the good subjects to choose only the best for your Morning Time but I am not sure we quite succeeded. ;-) We might have created more of an argument on why you should make your Morning Time longer.It's a great conversation and we do end up talking about what Cindy feels like we should prioritize in our Morning Times based on her years of experience doing Morning Time and mentoring moms. We can't wait to have you join the conversation.For show notes and episode downloads, visit pambarnhill.com/ymb97.

YMB #92 Growth Mindset for Kids: A Conversation with Ginny Kochis
Growth mindset is a hot buzz word in the education world these days, but what do you do if it makes you feel a little, well, uncomfortable.

That is why I am chatting today with Ginny Kochis who approaches the idea of growth mindset from a Christian perspective. How can we balance our belief in ourselves and our abilities with our need for God's grace and help. That is what we seek to answer here.
