May We Always Remember to #Savethekids with Collin Kartchner

Today, I’m republishing an episode with my dear friend, youth advocate, internet crusader and incredible human, Collin Kartchner, which was originally recorded in April of 2018. I’m putting this back out in the world with a little bit of commentary and whole lot of love.

Collin’s message and mission touched hundreds of thousands around the world as he taught parents to connect with their kids in this digital age, fought against the dangers of social media and spread the joy of 8 second hugs. I will never know the reason he was taken so soon, but I will continue to be inspired by his passion and support his mission in every way I can.

He wanted parents to wake up to the dangers that surround our kids and families. No one will ever fill his red Nike shoes, but I have listed below some accounts and organizations who are also spreading messages of hope and healing. I’ve also linked to Collin’s 2018 Tedx talk and his podcast. Please get educated and inspired and let your voice be heard. This is a fight worth fighting! #savethekids #savetheparents #forcollin.

Fighting for Love with JereMy and Claudia Rankins

It would really seem as if these two people came from two separate worlds. Claudia, being born and raised in Mexico until the age of 10 and JereMy, a bad boy from a large city in Texas. The two met while attending college where JereMy was working on his psychology degree after serving 5 years in prison and Claudia was preparing to attend Law School on the other side of the state. With the willingness to work together and continued devotion of time and communication, the two fell in-love. 8 years later, JereMy and Claudia have accomplished their career goals and have a young family. This may sound like a happily ever-after ending, but JereMy and Claudia, like so many other families have experienced struggles. Some of their struggles are associated with cultural background and differences.

In this interview, the couple shares some of their ongoing struggles and how they stay connected and dedicated to each other, their growing family and God.

My favorite line in this book, which is the tagline is: live more by doing less. This episode is timely and full of great nuggets of wisdom as we navigate the uncertainty swirling around us and do our best to keep first things first.
