Navigating relationships can be challenging, because people are all so different! On the Living Joyfully Podcast, we dive into tools, strategies, and paradigm shifts to help you decrease conflict and increase connection and understanding in your most important relationships. We talk about concepts like self-awareness, compassion, context, consent, and so many more.
The podcast starts with a 14-episode series which lays a foundation of new ideas and strategies. And every episode comes with thought-provoking questions to explore and share with the people in your life.
Let’s dig deep, challenge paradigms, choose connection, and live joyfully!
When relationships feel challenging, it can help to talk to someone. We can give you new strategies and tools to deepen your relationships, lessen conflicts in your home, and move toward more joyful and satisfying relationships.

We’re not sharing a map, we’re holding the lantern for you.
Our children are not your children. Our life experiences are not yours either. We get that! We’re not simply sharing a map and expecting you to follow in our footsteps because our journey is not your journey. Instead, we are holding up a lantern and walking alongside you. Sharing our stories and insights. Helping to light your path as you to do the deep, personal (and sometimes hard!) work of peeling away the layers of conventional ideas and expectations we absorbed growing up.
There is no playbook for unschooling! It’s going to look different in every home. That said, sometimes it helps to talk to someone who’s been there and understands the unique joy and challenges that come from being an unschooling family. With over 50 years of unschooling experience between us, we love sharing the insights we’ve found helpful and the framework that helps you set your family up for connection and growth.
The Exploring Unschooling Podcast and Pam’s books are a great place to start, but if you’d like to have a one-on-one conversation, we’d love to meet you!
