Gather in Growth

Gather in Growth

Where can I connect with fellow rural women who aren’t afraid to dream big dreams? How do I create and sustain daily habits that help me reach my personal and professional goals? Am I the only one that absolutely loves living in the middle of nowhere but wants to understand the world beyond my backyard? What should I do about the unshakable feeling that there’s more to life than just showing up? How do I break free from other people’s opinions and confidently live as my authentic self? Welcome to Gather in Growth, a show created for passionate, growth-focused rural women like you. From mindset work and building strong habits to nerding out over personal growth books through the lens of life on a backroad, this is a show to leave you feeling joyful, inspired, ready to take action, and a little less alone. Tune in for honest and heart-felt conversations with host, Emily Reuschel, and fellow thought leaders, to talk about personal growth and thriving as a rural woman. Here you’ll gain tactical strategies to bring your dreams to reality, real talk about the ups and downs of tackling goals, meaningful insight from fresh perspectives, and the confidence to step into the calling that’s been laid on your heart for a reason. If you crave to feel seen in a small town, you’re in the right place. Whether you’re currently running on a backroad, shuffling kids to town, hopping along for a tractor ride, or three loads deep into folding laundry… we’re in this together.

Not only are we celebrating the 100th episode of Gather in Growth, but I’m also joined by the love of my life - my husband, Andrew! I polled my IG community for questions they wanted to ask Andrew, and I have plenty of my own topics that we dig into as well, so you better believe this will be fun, and one you do NOT want to miss.

 

In this episode, we cover:

  • How Andrew and I met + how our (initial) long dist...

This impulse family trip was eye-opening (in the best ways possible), and really brought up SO many things for me. It reminded me to deeply think about how I’m spending time with my loved ones, parenting my kids, treating my body, planning and prioritizing, and even, how I’m showing up in community with others in this world (no matter their ideas or perspectives). I hope there’s a little nugget (or two) that you’re able to take fro...

Taking the path to work on yourself and really dig into the hard stuff feels like HELL when you’re in it - it’s far from easy. The soul freedom and liberation that follows though, along with the expansion and acceptance of others is beautiful - it’s all connected, and it all matters. We were created to be in community with others, and we really can learn SO much from other people and their differences. Whether you’re on your own jo...

In today’s episode, I want to talk about the importance of knowing your own red flags - specifically, within your body. Not that long ago when I was working outside of the home, I was burning the candle at both ends and juggling ALL.THE.THINGS. I was trying to be everything for everyone, and at the time, I thought that was completely normal - I had adjusted to that way of living. I’ve put in a LOT of effort to get to a place that d...

The work that I’ve been doing the last few years has pushed me to help others step outside of their comfort zones, challenge expectations, and break through limiting beliefs. I’ve LOVED getting to do this, but I’ve also come to the realization that I’m still holding myself back when it comes to questioning, and going against the norm. Maybe you can relate to this in some way; if you can, I want you to give yourself permission to dr...

My original plan for this episode was to do more of a ‘vlog’ style, because I recently traveled to a retreat I invested in for myself; I thought it would be fun to share what was happening as I was going through everything! I didn’t end up going that route (mainly because my brain kind of felt like mush every night when I planned to record, due to the fun-filled days and super late nights). I felt surprisingly calm going into this ...

Ashlea and I talk more about what it can look like to ‘simplify to amplify’ in all aspects of our life. Growing up in a generation that’s big on ‘quitters don’t win, and winners don’t quit’, we think that chasing (and achieving) the next big thing will FINALLY make us feel like we’re enough, and prove our worth. Unfortunately, this is why soooo many of us are frazzled, overwhelmed, and pretty much drowning in the day to day. Instea...

Jena Ochsner and I are talking more about pursuing alternative healthcare for your family, and why it’s not a bad thing to ‘go against the grain’ in this way. Jena has healed herself from the inside out. She’s passionate about living a healthier, ‘crunchy’ lifestyle, and she continues advocating for herself and her family. You can find hope for healing, and get to a place of thriving and flourishing in your everyday life!

In today’s episode, I want to talk about why it’s SO hard to ask for help, and even more, why you should be doing so. Women (and especially moms) are praised for being helpers, and putting everyone else first, while their needs are constantly pushed on the backburner. I mean...I myself am a thirty-something millennial mom living rural, who also was ingrained with the high-achieving, ‘do it all’ mentality for most of my life. Yeah.....

In today’s episode, I want to talk about seasons of change, and what happens as we continue piling on more duties, goals, responsibilities, etc., to our (already) overflowing plates. Our plates can be abundantly full of things we love and enjoy, but when we continue adding without removing anything, we start to feel exhausted, drained, and ultimately, like we’re not ‘enough’. So many of us fall into the trap of chasing achievement ...

I’m excited to have my amazing friend, Calli Thorne, as today’s podcast guest! Calli and I are talking all about mindset and mental health, and what the work looks like when you’re truly ready to change your mindset. Changing your mindset is a paradigm shift, and you HAVE to be willing to dig into the thoughts and feelings you’re having on a daily basis, if you want to change your circumstances. We’re also discussing what mental he...

I’m joined by my wonderful friend, Kaitlin Cox, for today’s episode! Kaitlin and I are talking about loss, healing, and empowerment, and what it looks like to pursue true alignment and purpose. We’re discussing how the power of intentionality and tenacity can support you with no longer fearing failure, leaning into your faith during life’s many ups and downs, not getting ‘bogged down’ with the big picture, Kaitlin’s podcast and her...

Kari Jo and I are talking all about the power of the pivot, and what it looks like to take riskier pursuits alongside a more ‘safe’ career choice. We’re digging into the importance of gaining clarity and really shifting your perspective when it comes to living your life (without letting other people’s opinions factor into this), how a high achievement-oriented personality can show up for business owners, the whirlwind of emotions t...

In today’s episode, I want to talk about why you should commit to an endurance challenge. Running is such a beautiful example of how you can show up for yourself, and it’s also a powerful lesson in goal setting. While it’s one thing to say you’re going to run or train for a certain event, it’s an entirely different thing to actually commit, and do the dang thing! When you push past the limits of what you think is possible, it unloc...

Multiple times throughout my life, I’ve learned HOW important it is to lean into my own intuition, instead of playing by other people’s rulebooks. We all have that gut feeling, and little ‘inner knowing’, but so often, we’re afraid to tune into it (or we’ve forgotten how to). I even experienced this with my most recent Ascend retreat event, and the way I went about planning and marketing for it. While I believe it can be helpful to...

Jada and I are talking about the divine feminine and mother wounds, and how much masculine versus feminine energy comes into play here. The concept of ‘more’ can be so detrimental, because as women, we are always being told to go and DO more. Even if we are doing all.the.things, we still hear that what we are doing isn’t enough, and this negatively impacts us further. We’re also digging into the very precarious topic of mother woun...

I’m excited to be joined by my friend, Jada Dobesh, on the podcast today! Jada and I connected in fall 2023, and we both share a passion for educating and inspiring women (especially in rural communities). We want to help women deeply understand and know themselves completely, so they actually can grow, heal, and thrive for years to come! In today's episode, Jada and I are talking about understanding and embracing your cycle, and w...

In today’s episode, I want to talk more about what happens when it’s been a hard week, and our emotions are allll over the place. For me personally, I’ve been intentional about personal growth and healing for several years now, but my brain will still default to old patterns of negative thinking when I’m feeling burned out, or just plain sad. While I don’t want to stay stuck spiraling into these negative thoughts and beliefs, I’ve ...

In today’s episode, I want to talk more about the domino effect, and how this shows up so often in our lives. When you choose to move forward with your goals and dreams (however big or small they may be), it’s important to let go of those unnecessary expectations you’ve (more than likely) set for yourself. These decisions, and the action you’re choosing to take in the present, will impact your life, not only 6 months from now, but ...

I thought I would be a teacher for the rest of my life - I loved what I did in my teaching career, as well as the non-profit space. But, being able to exceed my teacher salary by SO MUCH, and not have to leave my family to go to a job for a set amount of hours has been indescribable.

 

I hope this episode not only encourages you, but lights a fire within you to step out, and pursue your passion. Whatever you’re considering doing an...
