July Blog: Friendships, Triumphs, and Soulful Melodies

Welcome back, dear Readers!

July is in full swing, and we’ve got a treat for you in this month's episode. From the depths of family bonds to the heights of self-realization and the soulful harmony of a classic tune, we’re exploring it all.

So, let’s dive right into what we’ve been up to in our latest July Blog on Friendships, Triumphs, and Soulful Melodies.

Mother-Daughter Friendships: Beyond the Bond

We kick off our July Blog on Friendships, Triumphs, and Soulful Melodies with an episode hosted by Mrs. PIE and Little PIE (aka Isabella) delving into one of the most intricate and beautiful relationships that exist - that between a mother and daughter. We all know it’s a bond unlike any other, but we’ve gone a step further and investigated how this relationship can evolve into a fulfilling friendship.

It’s real talk about:

  • ·         How to navigate the transition from a traditional parent-child relationship to a more friendship-oriented dynamic.
  • ·         The potential drawbacks or limitations to blurring the boundaries between a mother and daughter and embracing a more friend-like relationship.
  • ·         How society's expectations and cultural norms influence the perception of a friendship between a mother and daughter.
  • ·         The role communication plays in developing and maintaining a friendship between a mother and teen daughter.
  • ·         The advice we give to mothers and daughters who are seeking to build a friendship and working partnership.

Key takeaways:

Communication: Keep the channels open, even when the waters are rough.

Mutual Respect: Understand and value each other’s opinions and choices.

Evolution: Be adaptable to the changing dynamics of the relationship as both mother and daughter grow.

Imposter to Conqueror:  What does God say about you?

Next, we transition into a segment dedicated to letting go of self-doubt and the nagging feeling of being an imposter. Many of us, regardless of our achievements, often feel like we don’t deserve the success we have, but it's far from what God says about you.

In a world that bombards us with conflicting messages that challenges our self-worth, the Bible offers a profound revelation about who we truly are in God's eyes.

In this episode, we explore how we can move from feeling like imposters to embracing our identity as conquerors through the teachings of the Holy Scriptures.

Soulful Sounds: Rediscovering Earth, Wind & Fire's "Sun Goddess"

Finally, our Road Manager, Nathan Todd shares soulful sounds of Earth, Wind & Fire’s classic, “Sun Goddess.” This timeless track, which was originally released in 1974 as a collaboration with Ramsey Lewis, encapsulates the essence of summer with its jazzy and upbeat tune.

This song and its blend of jazz, R&B, and pop created a masterpiece that still resonates today. As the perfect endnote to the month of June, as an ode to the sunny days of July.
