Iron Jen Show-podcast

 

 ” Be inspired, motivated and encouraged to discover how build resiliency and iron focus in order to leverage adversity to reach your potential”

-The Iron Jen

 

Often, I find many people have things in their heart they want to accomplish, yet they are discouraged and afraid. Some feel too tired to try since they have many obstacles to overcome.

A starting place for them to change is by renewing their minds and gain courage to go forward even when they may feel like quitting or giving up on their family, hopes and dreams.

I always encourage them to pray and read their Bible if they are people of faith.

The Word of God is stuffed with helpful verses that give courage and strength :

“That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT)

After those bases are covered…. I cannot say enough about The Iron Jen Show podcast. Iron Jen’s honesty and transparency keep me hooked on the show.

I listen to it regularly from the podcast app on my iPhone. You can listen on Android and on Blog Talk Radio on your computer. You can subscribe to automatically receive new episodes.

The background story is a family that has worked hard to climb out of massive debt, compete in triathlons, manage their busy lives with four children including one son who unfortunately has serious health issues for God to heal.

The podcast is designed for people from all walks of life who need encouragement and support. Iron Jen tackles life’s tough issues with her guests who help listeners overcome everything from writing a book,  starting or expanding a business, to climbing out of depression or helping a child conquer substance abuse.

In what areas do you struggle and need the most encouragement? What do you do when you need more courage?

I am astounded by this article and the great book I am reading called “Digital Invasion, The: How Technology is Shaping You and Your Relationships” which I can’t wait to share about when I finish.

In my personal life I have noticed as a parent that my children seem to loose their creativity and interest in playing when they spend too much time with screens. Maybe it happens from a combination of too many educational TV programs and online learning. They seem bored more often and act like they don’t know what to do with themselves when getting free time. They BEG for another TV show or another view of their favorite Brain Pop, Jr. When that happens, we move toward balance again but cutting way back on technology. Meanwhile, this phenomena is well founded in brain science. Thrilling!

I learned that there are serious potential health affects when our children delve too often in the digital jungle. There are affects on a child’s brain development that can lead to problems later in life if not detected.

funny cartoon about a mom speaker by McPherson 160kb

I just received a picture of this hilarious cartoon from a friend who wrote “U at ENOCH”

She is referring to me speaking at the ENOCH NJ Homeschool Convention coming up in May.

This funny cartoon was created by John McPherson at http://CloseToHome.com

He has a new Close To Home funny on the http://www.gocomics.com/closetohome everyday.

Ironically, this cartoon is easy to relate to at times with our 6 kids that we homeschool.

Moms juggle a lot to get things done!
