This week's show has you primed and ready for family time! Kicking things off, we have some thoughts on Mother's Day. Mother's Day can be an awkward holiday since the people who typically plan and organize holidays and family activities are the ones who are meant to be honored. We'll talk about ways to avoid the awkwardness of the holiday and how to have the Mother's Day you really want. And we didn't forget about all the single moms our there! We have tips for you so you can celebrate and have the day you dream of.

Then we're chatting with Claudette Chenevert, the Stepmom Coach. Claudette will be sharing her expertise for creating a happy and harmonious step family. Hear Claudette's story and how she found her happy ending. Then learn about one simple technique that can get your step family pulling together, creating a happy and successful family.

Lastly, in Christmas Corner, we have tips for better photos. Let's face it, photos are the cornerstone of our memorabilia and you'd love to have some great pictures to look at as you reminisce about old times and family functions. While you can still enjoy the memories no matter what the photos look like, it's more fun when Timmy's head isn't cut off and Suzy isn't fuzzy or a shiny blur. And if you can capture the feeling of the moment, that's nirvana.

Water, it's everywhere and we are constantly hearing about how we need to drink 8 glasses a day to maintain good health. You probably understand that in your head, but your heart just isn't in it. Today I'm sharing 5 motivating reasons to drink water, reasons that will make you want to grab a glass right now. Then I'm sharing the details of my last vacation; not to brag, but to show you how going against the grain can really make you happy.

Then we're talking about simple living for real families. There's a lot of hype out there about simple living but, for the average family, a lot of what you hear can feel daunting. Today, Andrea Dekker is joining us to share the real scoop about simple living. She's a wife, mom and full time blogger working from home who believes in keeping things real. She'll be sharing ideas with us for making life easier for your family through simple living strategies, strategies that work for real families.

And finally we're wrapping things up in Christmas Corner with a chat about that annual family Christmas photo. I'm sharing ideas for breathing new life into your same old routine as well as tips for taking better family photos.

Join us at noon ET (11am CT, 10am MT, 9am PT) on www.radio.heartfilledholidays.com

Andrea Dekker:

Wife to Dave.
Momma to Nora and Simon.Lover of all things "white".List maker.
Meal planner.
Diaper changer.
Farmhouse renovator.
Closet organizer.
Life simplifier.

I'm the simple living enthusiast behind the Andrea Dekker blog, business, and brand

If I could describe myself in one word, I would choose "REAL". 

People who know me a little better might say "blunt" or "candid" - but I prefer "real":)

What you see is what you get with me. I don't sugar-coat things, I say it like it is, I present the facts in the simplest way possible, and I don't waste time "beating around the bush". So yes, I might be blunt or candid at times, but I say what I think and I'm always true to my beliefs.

Sometimes this gets me in trouble... but for the most part, I consider it an asset. My friends and family always know they can count on me to give them a REAL, honest answer - even if it might sting a bit and even if it's not what they want to hear.

I try to bring that "realness" to AndreaDekker.com as much as possible. 

My house, my family, and my life are far from perfect, but that's OK - I'll share them with you anyway; the exciting, the exhausting, the emotional, the exceptional and the every-day.

It's all here and more.

My hope is that AndreaDekker.com will be a resource to motivate, encourage, and inspire YOU to make positive changes in your home, your family, and your life. So grab a comfy chair and a cup of coffee... I'd love to have you stick around for a while!

Easter, expectations, crafts and Christmas on today's Heart Filled Holidays radio show. With Easter right around the corner you may be looking for new ideas for the kids Easter baskets. And what if you're trying to reduce the Easter candy intake? Or create candy-free Easter baskets? No worries! Sandy Fowler will share great ideas for fun and treats that satisfy kids of all ages (and their busy moms too!)

Life doesn't always go the way you expect. Sometimes it's the little things; maybe the gift you bought was a bust or the kids kept bickering all through your family vacation, and sometimes it's the really big things like realizing you're on the wrong path in your life. Regardless of the circumstance, or how long it's been going on, when life doesn't meet your expectations things can feel bad - really bad. Christine Hassler has named that phenomenon; she calls it an expectation hangover. Today she'll join us to talk about those expectation hangovers, discussing causes, cures and ways to find peace again.

We'll wrap things up with some fun, crafty ideas in Christmas Corner. Whether you want to keep the kids occupied during a school break, have some fun on a family night or reduce your holiday stress, we have an idea for you but I can't tell you now - it's a surprise.

PTSD Facts and Fiction – Michele Rosenthal, author of Your Life After Trauma, interviewed by Sandy Fowler on Heart Filled Holidays Radio, March 16

Click Here to download podcast OR Click Here to listen on iTunes


Today we are focusing on the family, logistically, emotionally and creatively. We'll kick off with a look at organizing your family from mail to schedules to chores as we talk about the Family Command Center which I think is more appropriately called a Family Hub. I'll also share a few ideas for fun and games for St. Patrick's day so you can enjoy a little fun with your favorite people.

You'll get to hear from Michele Rosenthal today. Michele is the author of Your Life After Trauma: Powerful Practices to Reclaim Your Identity.  Michele will open our eyes to the truth of PTSD and how it may be affecting people close to us. She'll show us where PTSD really comes from and how it affects people every day and give us ideas and hope for recovery. It's not just something that happens to soldiers and victims of violent crime. It can happen in everyday life and Michele will show us how to identify it and handle it.

And in Christmas Corner we're having some fun! We've done a lot of work lately on planning and organizing a debt-free holiday so today we're moving on to some lighter topics - decorations and bows. We'll look at some fun and easy decorations you can make for your home. They are pretty, sophisticated and whimsical but easy enough that the kids can help create them. Then we'll learn how to make a bow. I always see these fabulous wire bows on wreathes, walls and even presents and, after today, you and I will both know how to make them.
