Steph interviews Elise Loehnen, the author of the instant New York Times bestseller On Our Best Behavior and host of  Pulling the Thread, a podcast focused on pulling apart the stories we tell about who we are—and then putting those threads back together. Steph and Elise discuss the ways patriarchy impacts how women see themselves and what they police in each other. They discuss how the seven deadly sins impacts moms. Elise shares how the fear of sloth, gluttony, and envy leads to burnout, lack of confidence, feeling guilty about rest, and our relationship with our bodies before,during, and after pregnancy. We begin to dismantle these negative beliefs and thought patterns to help moms feel more freedom and joy in motherhood.

Topics Discussed:

  • Ways we subconsciously hide parts of ourselves.

  • How to lean into using your voice and saying what you mean.

  • Ways social media impacts motherhood.

  • How to break free of the belief that you’re not doing enough.

  • Navigating postpartum body image and envy.

Show Notes:

Elise Loehnen is a writer, editor, and podcast host who lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Rob, and their two sons, Max and Sam. She is the host of Pulling the Thread, a podcast focused on pulling apart the stories we tell about who we are—and then putting those threads back together. Ultimately Elise is a seeker and synthesizer, braiding together wisdom traditions, cultural history, and a deep knowledge of healing modalities to unlock new ways to contextualize who we are and why we’re here. She’s also the author of the instant New York Times bestseller On Our Best Behavior: The Seven Deadly Sins and the Price Women Pay to Be Good (Dial Press/PRH). The book weaves together history, memoir, and cultural criticism to explore the ways patriarchy lands in the bodies of women and embeds itself in our consciousness—and what we then police in ourselves and in each other. Regardless of our religious provenance, the self-denial implicit in each of the Seven Deadly Sins—Sloth, Envy, Pride, Gluttony, Greed, Lust, Anger—reads like a checklist of what it means to be a “good” woman. With awareness, we can begin to recognize these patterns of self-restriction, break the story, and move ourselves and each other toward freedom and balance.

Elise is a frequent contributor to Oprah, and has written for The New York Times, Elle Decor, Stylist, and more.

In a room full of kids, Coach Milo is the biggest, loudest, goofiest and most active one there. His passion lies in finding better means and methods of getting his younger brethren to move, to explore the communication between their brains and muscles and the interaction of those with the environment. After that, it’s all about getting them moving more often!   

Coach Milo is the founder of the Coalition for Launching Active Youth (C.L.A.Y.), an organization established to help the fight against sugar, boredom, video games, televisions and adults who have lost their inner child. Fundamental movement is Coach Milo’s weapon of choice. But give him a ball, bat, racquet and some space, and inactivity and obesity don’t stand a chance!  

Coach Milo gets children, and those of us not so childlike, moving nationally and internationally.

Steph interviews Laura Sandefer, co-founder of Acton Academy, a revolutionary design for K-12 learning. Acton is dedicated to inspiring each child to see life as a Hero's Journey, where someone with curiosity and character can find a 'calling’ and foster a true love of learning. Steph shares examples of how the transition out of public school to Acton Academy has significantly impacted her children’s happiness and education. They discuss how children can embrace heroism versus victimhood, the importance of failure, why grades and homework aren’t required for success, and skills kids actually need to thrive in the modern world. They offer tools for all parents to consider and practice in their house to help their kids build resilience. You’ll walk away with a new perspective on  early education that offers the child more agency, joy, and independence.

Topics Discussed:

  • Steph’s experience with Acton Academy.

  • The underlying belief about children and learning that Acton is built on.

  • The difference between heroism and victimhood.

  • Three things a mom can do at home to build the mindset of hero so her child avoids the pitfalls of victimhood.

  • What children really need to be healthy and happy. 

  • What happens when you step back and let kids lead.

After being awarded the Walter Wattles Fellowship at Lloyd’s of London, Laura worked in the aviation insurance industry in New York City.

This led her to her work at the Oklahoma Arts Institute, creating fine arts education programs for teachers and talented high school students. Laura married Jeff Sandefer and is the happy mother of Sam and Charlie and step-mother to Taite. It is the inspiration of these children that led Laura and Jeff to co-found Acton Academy, a revolutionary design for K-12 learning, and the Acton Children's Business Fair.
