Handling the Stress when Life Doesn’t Go According to Plan – Christine Hassler, author of Expectation Hangover, interviewed by Sandy Fowler on Heart Filled Holidays Radio, March 30

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.

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

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.

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


This week we're talking about siblings. Every family experiences the joy and frustration involved with living with children who don't always get along. I'll share our experience as well as a few tips from the experts on how to help your kids forge strong sibling bonds.

Then we'll be moving on to an interview that I'm really excited about. Today's guest is Al Ferguson, creator of The Dad Network, and he'll be giving us a peek inside the world of dads. Parenthood is a wonderful, amazing, crazy and stressful time. It's a time when adults are reduced to laughter and tears on a regular basis. But moms and dads see things differently, do things differently and don't always communicate well. Today we'll find out what dads are really thinking and what they wish moms knew.

And in Christmas Corner we're continuing our Debt-Free Holiday series. Today we're looking at two ways to have more money in your home. Along the way you'll be thinking about what you really want for your family and making sure you're putting your money where your heart is.
