Ep 106: Godly Glam, Self-Care, and The Clean Girl Aesthetic with Bianca Olthoff

Ep 106: Godly Glam, Self-Care, and The Clean Girl Aesthetic with Bianca Olthoff
Are you embracing the clean girl aesthetic? Is there an outfit that makes you feel your most confident? Do you have a self-care regiment? I'll be unpacking all of this today and explaining why taking care of yourself should be a priority. In this episode, I talk about:

· The basics of self-care

· Maintaining a personal standard

· How taking care of yourself is biblical

· Explaining vanity vs maintenance and knowing the difference

The church doesn't always like to have conversations about beauty and personal care because it can come across as pursuing vanity. Well, I'm flipping that narrative in this podcast, I want to let you know that having basic self-care standards is not bad but actually biblical. Being presentable, smelling good, and showing up for yourself shows others that you want to be taken seriously and treated with respect. 

As you listen, I hope you meet yourself with compassion and remember that it's okay to take care of yourself emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. If you love a full-face of make-up and hair extensions, this podcast is for you. If you love the TikTok clean girl aesthetic, this podcast is for you. If you prefer no make-up and yoga pants, this podcast is for you. 

I love a colorful co-ord and believe that the longer the lash, the better! I hope this podcast encourages you to embrace your individuality with style and grace, in every place. You can tag me @biancaolthoff, I'd love to learn more about your personal style. 

Love you,

B

Ep 105: Building a Blended Family, Leading with Love and The Delicate Dance of Step-Parenting with Peter & Heather Stow and Bianca Olthoff

Ep 105: Building a Blended Family, Leading with Love and The Delicate Dance of Step-Parenting with Peter & Heather Stow and Bianca Olthoff
Are you part of a blended family? Do you know someone who is navigating step-parenting? Have you wondered how non-traditional families make it work? Well, it's something I know all too well and I'm sharing my own experiences in today's podcast. In this episode, I talk about:

* Navigating step-parenting

* The importance of learning from other families

* Establishing boundaries and roles at home

* The realities of being part of a blended family

I was recently invited to the No Greater Joy Podcast hosted by my friends Peter and Heather Stow to discuss my experience with step-parenting. I'm grateful for the space they created for me to share my story and to increase the visibility of blended families in the church. Throughout the conversation, you'll learn more about how I adjusted to life as a S'Mom (aka Step-Mom). I talk about the lessons I learned and also the emotional impact of step-parenting.

As you listen, I hope you gain a new perspective on blended families and how they are part of God's plan. When I married Matt, I also gained Parker and Ryen and they've been a beautiful addition to my life. It hasn't always been easy, but the Olthoff household is one full of love and God's grace.

I went from being single to becoming a step-parent REAL quick and it changed my life forever. So, whether you're a step-parent or looking for ways to support a friend or family member who is part of a blended family, I hope this podcast encourages you. You can tag us @biancaolthoff, @peterstow and @heatherstow, we'd love to learn more about how this episode spoke to you.

Love you,

Ep 104: The Reality of Incarceration, Redeeming Your Story and Resilient Faith with Fox and Rob Richardson

Ep 104: The Reality of Incarceration, Redeeming Your Story and Resilient Faith with Fox and Rob Richardson
Have you ever made a bad decision and regretted it? Are you wondering if there's a way to redeem your story? Do you want to use your experiences to advocate for change? Fox and Rob Richardson speak candidly and with grace about all of this in today's podcast. In this conversation, we talk about:

* How difficult circumstances can lead to bad decisions

* The realty for men and women who are incarcerated in the U.S.

* Having resilient faith in hard times

* The importance of prison ministry

Fox and Rob's story is one wrapped in grace and full of redemption. They speak openly about mistakes that they made which led to both ending up in prison. Fox talks about how her faith got her through her sentence and how she fought for her husband's release. Rob details the reality of long-term incarceration and talks about the importance of supporting people who are serving a prison sentence.

As you listen, I hope you remember that God's grace is sufficient and that in our weakness the Lord is made strong. Whether you're hoping to rebuild your life after incarceration or looking for ways to support people in prison, there's something for everyone in this podcast.

We all make mistakes, and we are not defined by our past. There's a God that loves you and wants to turn your test into a testimony. You can tag us @BiancaOlthoff and @foxandrob, we'd love to learn more about how this episode spoke to you.

Love you,

Ep 103: The Power of Mindset, Building Healthy Thought Patterns, and Changing Your Life with YET with Jasmine Star

Ep 103: The Power of Mindset, Building Healthy Thought Patterns, and Changing Your Life with YET with Jasmine Star
Is your mind stuck in replay telling you the same negative thoughts? Are you ready to become aware of what you tell yourself and improve your mindset? Then you're in for a treat! Today I get to have a life-giving conversation with adoptive mom, entrepreneur, business owner, and my twin sister Jasmine Star on mindset shift.

In my eyes Jasmine has always been strong-willed, a driver, and prone to success. She shares with us how she learned about fixed and growth mindset and how it has helped her become aware of the things she was repeating to herself. Her breakthrough came after having a shift from a fixed to a growth mindset. Jasmine learned to empower her brain and apply a different mindset to her situations.

There are three main categories of self-doubt that a fixed mindset can keep you stuck in:

1. Over Planner

2. Treading Water

3. Destination Obsessed

Friends let's choose to learn from our challenges and write a different story. Get rid of stinking thinking by choosing the hard of change instead of the hard of stasis.

I love that I get to have these conversations and share them with you! Tag me @BiancaOlthoff and @JasmineStar and let us know how you are writing a different story today.

Love you friends!

Wow. If you are a stepmom listen to episode 105!

As per usual Bianca did NOT disappoint! Thank you Bianca for being brave and doing this episode! The words you spoke will forever impact my life and therefore the life of my stepdaughter and my marriage and maybe even my cat's life I will be listening to this episode on repeat for months (or maybe years) to come!

I. LOVE. THIS. PODCAST.
