This is a show featuring stories and ideas about people who use fitness, as a means to achieve their peak expression. Because getting a better mile time, or bigger snatch for the sake of it.. just doesn't cut it for me anymore.
Mogard's Dating Story: Partnering in purpose, not in search of purpose30/08/2019 Duração: 42min
This is the conversation I've always wanted to have with Mo & Emily. On a late summer night in Iowa, after the kids have all gone to bed, we tucked into their family couch and talked about dating, sex and marriage. I fully embraced the child-like wonder in me, and attempted to ask questions without giggling too hard. It has taken me 5 years of friendship to get comfortable enough to hear these stories for the first time, and it was a blast. We dove into the purpose of dating, the sustenance of romance amidst raising children, and how not to be consumed by your identity in one another. For anyone who knows me, Mo & Emily are basically my adopted parents; I've defaulted to them on many accounts, and can always trust them to guide me according to the Word of God. This episode is potentially more precious to me than anyone else in the world, but I'm not mad about it. Eavesdroppers, you are so welcome here.
Parenting with Freedom: The Cost, Benefits & Results29/06/2019 Duração: 55min
Mike and Emily Mogard are parents to 4 beautiful and athletic children. Our paths crossed 5 years ago when I moved to Brunei to work for the family; what compelled me to uproot my life was the way they lived theirs. Unlike most children, these 4 were living proof that there was something worth coveting about how they saw life and decided to pass it on. In this episode, Emily shares the intimate details of how their youngest son, Zion, battled bacterial meningitis as a baby. I ask how Mike ensures that their pursuit in weightlifting and CrossFit is entirely their own, and not to please their parents. From which, we conveniently segway onto Calla's identity in being liberated of clothing options, take a detour to discussing social media and their unorthodox decision to allow their children to have Instagram accounts before finally landing on how parenting these four kids have changed both Emily and Mike. Recorded in Ames, Iowa, U.S.A. --- Unlike most podcasts, this series is purely selfish in that I am desperat
