Favorite Episode of the Purpose Show: Ep 063: Life Hacks For Moms of Littles. It feels so strange to be out of the super-small-kids season of motherhood!

DJ steps in with his creativity and photoshop skills when we need a beautifully designed image or resource.

If you could snap your fingers and do anything, what would it be? 

I'd want to perfectly understand what someone is trying to communicate without having to hear them say/try to explain it. Snapping out candy would be cool though too- like, if you snapped and a couple skittles shot out. That would be fun.

What would you do on your perfect fun day and where would you go?

I'd sleep in, not have a schedule, be with Amy, eat good food, do something cool.

Favorite Quote: “I’m gonna do today what other people aren’t willing to, so I can do tomorrow what other people can’t.” -Mat Fraser

Favorite Episode of the Purpose Show: Ep 068: Ask Allie & Brian Anything was so fun to record. We were cracking up the whole time. But Ep 006 is our story. It makes me cry every time I hear it.

What is something embarrassing you don't want the world to know but they are about to see it: I snore insanely loud when I sleep. In Allie’s loving words, it sounds like a “freight train full of bears coming down the highway at full speed”.

On my perfect fun day I would load up the family and head out for the day! Lunch, zoo, exploring something new in our city, and finish our day with a movie and snuggles on the couch.
