Show Notes

"COMFORT ZONES are pretty dull places to live..." This week is about helping our kids to STRETCH for growth, to SPREAD their wings in order to fly.  It's one of those episodes you will want your kids to hear.

"You become a leader by learning to serve others" 

"Don't compare yourself to others"

"Everything you do speaks and you are constantly building your brand" are just some of the truths shared in this mother/daughter conversation.

As parents, our tendency is to want to make life easy for our kids. 
However, a life of constant and immediate happiness, doesn't bring GROWTH.
 If we want our kids to be strengthened, we must help them embrace challenges and obstacles as OPPORTUNITIES for their world to expand and  for their abilities to increase. 
Comfort zones are pretty dull places to live.  And, usually God's design for our lives, is far bigger than our comfort zone.
In this episode,  I'm joined by my daughter Abby to discuss the benefits of stepping out of our comfort zone, overcoming obstacles, and the good changes that can come from challenges.

This is the third week of the series on Preparing our Kids to SOAR.  See episodes 107 and 108 for parts one and two of the series.
