Sarah Pashniak-Pashionate About Sleep

Season 2, Ep. 11
I had such an amazing conversation with Sarah. You must listen to this episode if you have toddlers or infants! We talk about mental health and I get some free therapy once again!Bio: Sarah is a busy mom of three who discovered her passion (aka pashion) for sleep when her babies slept like garbage. Sarah has an education degree with a major in psychology. She is also a certified pediatric sleep coach and she works with exhausted parents and helps them get some zzz’s in their life. She knows first hand the impact that a lack of sleep has on the infant/child as well as the parents. Sleep is essential for mental well being and Sarah helps sleep deprived parents get some much needed rest.  From Sarah:I help exhausted and sleep deprived parents give their little ones the precious sleep they need every night. Lack of sleep not only affects the development of our infants and toddlers, it also impacts everyone in the family.  As a mother of twin boys and a little girl, I understand the trickle effect that the lack of sleep has on everyone in the family. After the birth of our twin boys, I struggled with postpartum depression. I felt anxious as a new mother and I began to have difficulty sleeping.When one baby was awake, the other would be asleep. I felt like I was drowning and I was extremely sleep deprived. My husband and I decided to sleep train the boys and I finally began to sleep more!  My babies were well slept and happy. I finally felt like my true self again!"When one baby was awake, the other would be asleep. I felt like I was drowning and I was extremely sleep deprived."Flash forward a few years and we have another baby!  She really struggled with sleep and so both of us ended up being sleep deprived. When she turned 16 weeks old, I hired a sleep consultant and it was a game changer! I felt so motivated to help other families in similar situations. Sleep coaching has been an investment in my children, my family, my mental health, and my marriage. I would love to help you and your family get the sleep you need and deserve!I am Pashionate about how sleep impacted our children’s lives. I am Pashionate about feeling like my true self.I am Pashionate about SLEEP!

Mallary Hope American Singer-Songwriter

Season 2, Ep. 9
Enjoy my conversation with Mallary Hope where we talk about her beginnings in the music industry and some highlights along the way. We also have some good laughs talking about our families and crazy kiddos. "Mallary Hope is a Georgia-born storyteller who uses music to convey her experiences, and the world around her. At 9-years old, Hope – aptly named by her mom – began to understand that music is at the core of her being, as the sweet sound of Karen Carpenter’s voice on The Carpenters’ “Superstar” brought her to tears. A short couple of years later, Amy Grant’s “El Shaddai” was the first song she learned to play on the guitar, followed by Dolly Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors.” Mallary’s childhood church provided her the first stage where she was able to share her captivating vocals with others. With supporting parents willing to give their daughter every opportunity they could, they moved the family to Nashville, where it didn’t take long for Hope to meet plenty of supporters in the music industry, and for her to make it to one of the most legendary stages the world over – the Grand Ole Opry – where she has performed many times since. “I love Jesus and Johnny Cash,” shares Hope, exemplifying everything about her personal faith she wants to share with the world, along with her deep love and appreciation of music that knows no boundaries. “People want to be encouraged. My songs evoke emotion. It is my desire that my songs can bring meaning and clarity to the various things we all go through in our lives.”Hope, who has been covered by The New York Times, performed on Fox & Friends, receives airplay from both Christian and Country radio stations, and whose music videos are supported by CMT, has toured alongside artists as varied as Skillet and Darius Rucker, and has written songs for fellow artists like Lauren Alaina, Danny Gokey, Sara Evans, and Faith Hill. And as for the beginning of one of her life’s dearest and most important relationships, her thoughtful boyfriend (at the time) proposed to her on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry House, in one moment marrying multiple things dearest to Hope: her faith, her (future) husband, and of course, music. From the early and lasting influences of Karen Carpenter to Amy Grant to Dolly Parton, Mallary is using that beautiful voice with forever echoes of her deep American South upbringing, along with her overall inescapable platform of music, to share what inspires her, and encourage others along the way."
