Beyond Good Intentions, A Parenting Podcast to Help Strengthen Families.

Welcome friends! This is the main page for everything to do with the parenting podcast, Beyond Good Intentions. Bookmark this page, and come back regularly to hear the latest interview as we strive together to strengthen our families. This is not a place for the parent that has it all together (newsflash: that person doesn’t exist!), but this is a spot to gather ideas and implement what feels best for your family. I will update this page weekly with a link to the newest episode.  You can also SUBSCRIBE on iTunes or your favorite podcast app.  Then it will automatically download when a new podcast is released.

My biggest goal has always been to strengthen my family.  As I am on the journey to move beyond just my own good intentions and really make strides at building a stronger, happier family, I love the ideas and encouragement that I get from others.  This podcast came from my desire to share that encouragement with you, through the stories and discussions I have with other parents.
