EP 34: Kari Kampakis - Liked vs. Loved

2/2/2017
Kari is a blogger, author, speaker, and newspaper columnist from Birmingham, Alabama. Her work has been featured on The Huffington Post, TODAY Parents, and other national outlets. Kari's first book, 10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know, has been used widely across the country by teen youth groups and small groups to empower girls through faith. Her new book is called Liked: Whose approval are you living for?   I first came across Kari's work when I read her 2014 Huffington Post blog "Raising a Kind Daughter".  Rooney was born that same year. I think it struck me because, well, I want deeply to raise a daughter who is secure enough in who she is that she treats others with love and respect. I pray for that.   Kari is a mom to four daughters, so she understands the need for clear expectations and a well-founded plan for social media. I absolutely loved our conversation because Kari broke down really simple ways that we can set our girls up for success on social media and not shy away from the conversations that need to be had and led by us. Highlights for me include how to keep posts and comments positive online and healthy ways to process negative emotions when our girls come across something online that makes them feel hurt, sad, or uncomfortable.     Check out today's episode "Liked vs. Loved" and learn how to help your girl understand that her value lies in her identity as a child of God. She is loved and that's worth so much more than being liked.  

Heroes For Her

Most women struggle with things like insecurity, comparison, or trying to measure up to the world's impossible standard of beauty. They've questioned their ability to live well, lead effectively, and own their influence to positively impact the next generation of confident, compassionate and capable women.   

Women need a place to gather, and grow, so they can guide the girls they love to know their value, live on purpose, and make the unique difference in the world they were born to make. 

Welcome to the Heroes For Her podcast with Erin Weidemann

In this podcast, Erin tackles the issues that matter most to women: the mothers and mentors of the next generation. From overcoming fear to walking in purpose to shifting the focus of feminine value from beauty to inherent worth, Erin gets real about the reality of female life and leadership. 

Join Erin as she inspires you each week by sharing personal stories as well as interviewing real women; positive role models whose lives and leadership are making a difference.

Leadership is about being a person who others can trust + also a person who YOU can trust. Do you trust and believe in yourself? Women can have a lot of trouble in this area because of things like discomfort or anxiety about their abilities or a general lack of confidence. Pair that with negative self-talk and we've got a few hurdles in front of us. Don't worry. In this episode Erin is going to tell you about the single greatest asset you have to learn to listen and trust in yourself: your Body Compass.
