Ep 007: Creating Your Family Mission Statement

Ep 001.png

Creating a family mission statement is a really great way to lay the foundation for what your purpose is as a family. It outlines the things you stand for and things you don’t.

A family mission statement is exactly what it sounds like, an intentional statement that you make together with your family. It encapsulates your priorities and your goals as a family.

When parenting gets tricky, and your kids start getting older, it’s a really great way to have something to go back to and compare things with. Your family is going to be raised, and your kids are going to grow and become adults, setting a solid foundation with a family mission statement, can help keep you all focused on your family goals.

 
 

In This Episode, Allie discusses:

  • "Where there is no vision, the people perish.” - Proverbs, 29:18

  • Allie shares her family mission statement that she and Brian created together.

  • How to begin the process of creating a family mission statement.

  • Why placing the mission statement where all can see it, is so important.

Mentioned in this Episode:

  • "Everyone ends up somewhere, few arrive somewhere on purpose." - Lara Casey

Episode 006: How My Blog Got My Husband Out of His 9 to 5

Ep 001.png

Today’s topic is something that I’ve been asked a lot about, but it’s something that I’ve always struggled to share.

I am opening the door for the first time on a very vulnerable, difficult and now, exciting part of me and Brian’s story. It’s something that I needed to get to a certain place in my life and heart, before I was really ready to open up and share.

I’ve been feeling, for a few months, that the time is coming.

I’d even planned on writing a big blog post last year, but I kept putting it off. I kept procrastinating. Subconsciously, I just wasn’t ready to share.

However, after I ended up starting my own podcast, I felt like it was time to talk about it. It’s much easier for me to share this with my voice rather than trying to find the right words in writing...

This is the story of the start of my business. How a little hobby blog, that I kept in the quiet, late night hours, while waiting for my husband to get home from a job that he hated, and how it was so difficult for us because we were barely getting by.

This is how this little blog turned into a global empire and saved our family and got my husband out of his 9 to 5.

 
 

In this episode, Allie discusses:

  • How she and Brian came from poverty and incredible difficulty in making ends meet as he worked insane hours six days a week.

  • Following God’s call out of their home state, away from everyone they knew and loved and moving to the midwest, where they knew no one.

  • The difficult times of Arkansas, how everything at first got even worse, and how Allie began to seriously doubt God.

  • Falling in love with not just blogging, but helping other women through her story & experiences.

  • Discovering the idea of turning a blog into a successful business.

  • Sharing her message, being more vulnerable, helping other women.

  • How Your Uncluttered Home came to be.

  • Taking a leap of faith and having Brian quit his job, before his income had been replaced.

  • The incredibly grueling months that Allie and Brian experienced before her blog and the course truly took off.

  • God had given Allie a really powerful word for my business that she still clings to.

  • Feeling like she failed her family.

  • Having a post go viral, and waking up to 15,000 new subscribers and money suddenly in her account overnight.

  • What has changed since everything happened, and what the business is like now.

  • Allie gets very emotional and shares her words of advice for anyone struggling to pursue a dream through tears and lots of passion!

 

THIS EPISODE IS A MUST-LISTEN. Grab the tissues!

Episode 005: I Don't Have A Capsule Wardrobe, and Here's Why

Ep 001.png

I get asked about capsule wardrobes A LOT.

People watch my Instagram Stories or see photos of me on the blog and say things like, "I see you wearing lots of different things. It seems like you have a lot of clothes. How do you deal with that?" So, I just wanted to address it directly!

I am a person who loves getting dressed. I love clothes, my wardrobe and having options. Being creative in this way adds to my joy! For me, that is a part of an abundant life. Choosing my clothes each morning brings more joy into my daily life.

Let this episode be a message of freedom for you. Let this be permission to make minimalism work for you and bring you joy. Let this give you permission to let go of the junk that is just not serving you, that is holding you back, and taking up your time.

Let this be permission to have what brings you incredible joy and makes you love your life and your house more. I hope this makes sense and that this clears up some of your questions!

 
 

In this episode, Allie discusses:

  • What a capsule wardrobe is.

  • Allie’s journey from living with a minimal wardrobe to realizing how much joy clothes and putting outfits together brings her.

  • Minimalism doesn’t have to be suppressive.

  • What is your “WHY” behind wanting to be a minimalist? Answering this will help you determine if something brings joy to your life, or not.

  • How Allie and her husband decorate their home so that it feels cozy and modern.

  • Permission to have what brings you incredible joy and makes you love your life and your house more.

Episode 004: Positive Words for Your Children

Ep 001.png

Words can be an incredible way of bringing positivity into your life and the life of your children.

I’ve always been drawn to words. I can remember as a child and now as an adult looking back and realizing how special this was. I literally had a relationship with words. I’d make up stories. I’d take classic fairy tales and rewrite them into my own versions, I just loved being surrounded by words.

Words have always just been a really powerful passion in my life.

The other side of words are that they can slice deep, especially in marriage. Any flaw you have, is magnified 1000% in marriage. So, while words have been a crazy positive gift for me, they’ve also been a weakness.

Words have shaped some circumstances of my life, and in today’s episode I want to share a how effective words have been in changing the behavior of my children.

 
 

In this episode, Allie discusses:

  • The effect words have on you in both a positive and negative way.

  • How easy it is to complain and use negative words to describe things, and why it’s important to switch your words to the positive.

  • Why it is important to speak positive words over your children.

  • In the beginning it may be uncomfortable to speak positive words or scriptures over your children, but find a place or a way that works for you. Allie shares how she does it.

  • Changing the words that you speak to and over your children has the power to completely change their behavior.

  • Tips and suggestions on where to find positive affirmations and scriptures, and how you can store them on your phone.

Episode 003: How My Morning Ritual is Changing My Life

Ep 001.png

Having a morning ritual can completely change the flow of your day. Some morning rituals are all about productivity, getting things done before the kids wake-up, and others are more about self-care.

There is no right or wrong when you create your routine, it all depends on what season of life you’re in.

My morning ritual began when my husband was still working outside the home, as a way to build and grow my business. Since that time so much has changed in my life. I had a period of time where I’d jump out of bed and get started on my tasks for the day, but I’m at a point now where being able to deeply focus on myself and self-care will be more beneficial to my day.

Seasons change and good routines adapt to fit those changes!

One last note, I used to be a night owl, but I knew how much more purposeful my days would be if I began rising her earlier. It was a process, but it was worth putting the effort in to switch to a early bird. 

 
 

In this Episode, Allie discusses:

  • Tips on how Allie began her morning routine, and how it has shifted with the seasons of her life

  • The detailed morning routine Allie goes through each morning, to make her day more focused and purposeful

  • How Allie’s morning routine helps her overcome one of her biggest weaknesses

  • Ideas for ways to fit in more reading on a daily basis

  • Why taking action on your goals will leave a lasting impact on your life

Episode 002: How to Lose Weight by Loving Your Body Better

Ep 002.png

In today’s episode, we’re going to go deep into how we can treat our body with more love and gratitude.

It is common for many moms to not even acknowledge or care for themselves, and I believe we need to change that. We need to be grateful for all of the things ours amazing bodies can do.

The size of our bodies is unimportant, what matters is that you are caring for it in a way that makes you feel good inside and out.

I hope you’ll join me, and listen as I call for all women to love the bodies that God gave them, more!

 
 

In this Episode, Allie discuss: 

  • Why and How we should stop pushing our bodies to morph into something they’re not.

  • Have you ever shifted your focus from what your body IS from what it isn’t?

  • How we can start acting out of love for our bodies.

  • Allie shares a personal story about how she struggled with a negative mindset because of the foods she was eating.

  • Life is all about balance-- the good and the bad.

  • A 2-step process that can help you bring forth more gratitude for your bodies.

  • Let this be your “trick” diet, that you are just really freaking grateful for your body.

Episode 001: My Goal Setting Process

Ep 001.png

Happy New Year!

In this episode, I’m taking you deep inside the exact goal setting process that I use to make and achieve massive goals.

I frequently get asked how I am able to achieve so much in such a short amount of time, but there’s no secret. Anybody can make their dreams a reality, you just need to set goals the “right way.” Then, begin taking action to achieve whatever it is you want, by being a woman of intent.

So, I’d love it you’d join me with a cup of coffee (or tea if that’s your thang) and enjoy the very first episode of The Purpose Show! Yay!

 
 

In this episode, Allie discusses:

  •  A quick overview of what's happening with the podcast and when new episodes will be published each week

  • Why New Year's is great time of year to create new goals, but not the only time

  • How she manages so much with four kids, a full personal life, and multiple successful businesses

  • How to achieve your goals

  • Her step-by-step process to setting the right goals for where you are in your life

  • What reverse engineering is, and how it can change the way you reach your goals

  • Why taking action on your goals will leave a lasting impact on your life
