Today's show contains a full hour of ideas, reflection and inspiration for moms. We're kicking off the show chatting about a favorite topic - organization. I've been reading up on what the experts have to say and today we'll talk about one of their pet peeves, one that sneaks up on my home and might just hit yours as well.

Then we're moving on to a little self-improvement. With the New Year in your rear view mirror you may be wondering why that resolution failed, or maybe you're still rolling along but are getting a little weary. Resolutions are about creating change and one of the things that makes change easier is habits. Today we're checking out an article from the New York Times discussing myths we believe about habits, myths that can make it harder to create good habits.

And then it's on to our kids. One of the most dreaded questions in a family's day is when a parent asks a child, "How was school today?" Kids get stressed because they don't really know how to answer and parents get frustrated because they want more than the one-word answer they often receive. Listen in for some insights and suggestions for getting real answers out of your child so you can not only learn about their day but also gain insights into other aspects of their life.

We'll wrap up with Christmas Corner where we're continuing our Debt-Free Holiday series. Today you find out what to do with the last couple week's journaling activities and how it can help you create a better celebration. Then we're sharing a quick list of items to carry in the car as you travel in cold weather. You never know when you'll get stuck in your vehicle for a stretch and a little prior planning can make a world of difference.

Join us at noon ET (11am CT, 10am MT, 9am PT) on
