Description

Mom life: we’re surrounded with the message that it’s the tired life, the no-time-for-myself life, the HARD life.

And while it is hard and full of lots of servitude, the idea that motherhood means a joy-less life is something I’m passionate about putting a stop to.

I’m on a mission to help you stop counting down the minutes till bedtime (at least most days).

I want you to stop cleaning up after your kids’ childhood, and start being present for it - start enjoying it.

I believe in John 10:10, that we are called to abundant life, and I know mothers are NOT excluded from that promise.

Join me in conversations about simplicity, minimalism, and lots of other good stuff that leads to a life of less for the sake of enjoying more in motherhood.

I’m Allie Casazza, and this is The Purpose Show.

Annie Dillard always says, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” That is an easy statement to hear when we are in restful seasons driven by balance and simplicity. But what about those seasons that are full, busy, and can lead to feeling overwhelmed, mentally cluttered, and a cranky attitude? It is important that we listen to our bodies and minds, and that we take it one day, even one step at a time. And it is freeing when we allow ourselves to become intuitive and make necessary changes and shift in busier seasons. Just know that everything is figureoutable and everything can be simplified. It is ok if you have to cut out or cut back on things. Life won’t end! So let’s dive in and talk about how you can navigate the really busy, full seasons of your life well, and really show up well in those times of life!

Reina Pomeroy is a business coach for creatives, the Founder of Reina + Co., and mama to two little boys. She is incredibly talented and successful in all she does! She has mastered being the CEO of her business AND the CEO of her home (because doing both takes strategic balance!) This episode is a super laid back conversation between two working mama’s talking all things business, motherhood, pregnancy, infertility, rhythms and routines, getting it all done, and fitting it all in. I am so excited to share this conversation with you! Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: http://alliecasazza.com/shownotes/109
The talk. It isn’t just one talk, it is an ongoing conversation. It is an important conversation, a personal one, and one that will come as your kids start asking questions. My 10 year old started asking so we dove right into it. I knew the time was right and I felt confident to lead this conversation well based off the conversation Brian and I had as we prepared for this.   There's so much negativity out there about talking to your kids about sex, so I wanted to add positivity to that pool and just say it doesn't have to be that way. It can absolutely be good, positive, constructive, helpful, sweet, silly and relaxed. I hope that this episode empowers you to do this well and to have a successful ongoing conversation with your child about sex, kissing, love and all that stuff.

Traveling with kids often means traveling with A LOT of stuff and A LOT of stress. But it doesn’t have to be that way and it certainly doesn’t have to be overwhelming! We travel as a family often which means we’ve “trial-ed and error-ed” many different things. From having a small suitcase for each kid to ways we keep our kids entertained on long flights or drives (and everything in between) I hope these tips help you find simplicity in traveling with your kids! At the end of the day, family trips are FUN and are meant to bring your family closer together. You can easily make this a terrible trip or you can make it the best experience! It is up to you- you are the parent. Your kids need grace. You need grace. Relax. Breathe. And try to have fun!

The one thing I don’t talk about is being a work-out-of-the-home mom. I just never did that, so I don’t want to teach what I don’t confidently know. But! Today’s a good day because my friend Kendra Hennessy has been in that position and is about to drop some serious truth bombs for you mamas! This episode is going to bring you a lot of hope and inspiration no matter what type of mom you are! Whether you are a mom who works from home or outside the home, get ready for really good conversation around finding the balance and harmony between work and family. Kendra and I talk about figuring out what fits your family best, discovering the values that are non negotiable, and finding ways to connect with each of your kids (because we all know, every kid is different and needs their mom in different ways!) There are fears, doubts, and misconceptions moms who work outside of the home face but at the end of the day we are all moms working to give our kids the best we can!

Style and clothing should make you feel good, right? It should make you feel confident and put together. But so many times we say “I don’t have time to pick out my outfits” or “I’ll just throw this on.” This leads to negative thinking about how we look and ultimately impacts how we feel. It doesn’t have to be this way! One of my biggest goals in life is to put an end to the mom-frumping thing! Just because you are a mama doesn’t mean you stop caring about yourself use it as an excuse to not care how you feel about your clothes. Getting dressed can be fun, simple and you can totally have a stellar style! Let’s dive in! Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: http://alliecasazza.com/shownotes/105
Let’s get honest for a moment … forming authentic friendships takes work! And forming those connections when your lifestyle is different takes even more work. Whether your lifestyle is different because something has happened to you in your life, like being widowed, or your lifestyle is different because you've chosen that lifestyle. I just want you to feel you're not alone. I hope you find comfort and joy in the lifestyle you have chosen. And I hope this episode helps you figure out to form real connections through it! Because I get it - It's hard to feel understood and hard to form authentic friendships because of what I do. But let’s take action together towards authentic friendships because we are in this together! Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: http://alliecasazza.com/shownotes/104
It’s no surprise that my favorite thing to talk about is decluttering! Clearing the clutter is simplifying your life and creating an atmosphere of less so that you can focus more on what you want to be focusing on and what actually matters to you. This comes in many forms - physical clutter and mental clutter, heart clutter, calendar clutter, physical health clutter - all of that. And in this episode, we are going back to the basics of decluttering your physical stuff. I am going to help you figure out exactly where you should start! Let’s dive in!

I love learning and growing! It is a big part of the conversations I have here on the show. One of the biggest things I think we all struggle with is taking action on what we learn and actually following through on it. There is power in taking action on the things we are reading, learning, and hearing. If you find yourself learning things but struggling to take action on what you are learning, I got you friend! This episode is for you and I am going to help you figure out how to take action!   Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: http://alliecasazza.com/shownotes/102
Multitasking may feel like you are getting a lot done, but when you really think about it, are you? Because, truthfully, we can’t show up in multiple places at once. We can’t show up for a workout, plan our calendar, and think about dinner at the same time. Maybe we can, but are we doing it well? Probably not. Multitasking can create this inner noise and feeling of things getting done in a rushed or hurried way. We need to show up well and be fully present in life instead of just letting it pass us by. This is something I am totally learning right now and I am excited to share the journey with you! Everything I talk about in this episode can be found HERE: http://alliecasazza.com/shownotes/bonus5

Thank you Allie for all the aweaome podcasts! it's so nice to be able to pop in my earbuds and listen to your words of encouragement to live a simpler life with decluttering everything and it's really helping me see the bigger picture that if I can spend less time on my house it means more time with my hubby and kids. Thank you so much and I look forward to every new episode that comes out!

I've never commented on a platform like this, but i have to. allie, I hope you read these comments. my name is Josoe. i dont follow allie or the purpose show religiously. just every now and then i will skim through and choose an episode that sounds applicable if the length is right for the chore I am doing. today i listened to episode 98 about PPD and parent/child disconnect and I .need. to say thank you. allie, thanks for being brave and vulnerable and real and raw. I, like so many others whom I am sure will also reach out, have struggled with this in my motherhood, too. thank you for reminding me that I am not alone, even when I feel isolated and deserted on my hopeless island, ugly crying on the bathroom floor. I hope you know you aren't alone either. that you aren't the only one who has felt infuriated at your 6 month old baby when they playfully sputter out their mouthful of peaches, or when they fuss louder, wanting to nurse one more time even though your nipples are still bleeding and your toes are still curled from their last failed latch attempt. thank you for validating feelings that I have recently been questioning. sometimes I wonder where I stop and where the depression begins, or where the anxiety stops and i begin. who can tell? i am recovering. i can only tell when i look back and hardly recognize who or where i was in my foggy memories. my healing is absolutely through the empowering, enabling Atonement of Jesus Christ. His open arms, and His love for me, exactly as I am, is unbelievable, but I am learning to trust it. It is so hard, but also effortless in a way. Some days I hit rock bottom and wonder whether it is worth the pain of clawing myself along the rocky shards, out of the cold, dirty pit. It is worth it. you are worth it. your sweet babes, and mine are worth it. I am worth it. And at the end of the sharp, arduous climb, I look up and see that I am not the one whose hands are pierced. i am not the One with great drops of blood sliding down my brow from the effort. He is. And I love Him. I love Him far beyond my limited ability with words. thanks for sharing something hard and inspiring. episode 98 is definitely the most meaningful podcast I have ever listened to. Thank you. love, Josie

just started listening about a week ago and I must say that I love how deeply you delve into the heart of motherhood and simplicity and how it interacts with our faith in Christ! Even in the wider world of minimalism, where people profess to be much deeper thinkers their tends to be a lot of shallowness and selfishness. From a mom who's only been a mom for 7 weeks, THANK YOU for helping me start my motherhood on a spiritually healthy path.

I LOVED this episode!! I have been trying to think of ways to minimalize our home and as you were going through the different rooms I had so many ideas of things we could get rid of to declutter our home!
