Sometimes, the coping mechanisms we use are good for us….and other times, they allow us to just make it through another day of motherhood!

In today's episode, we're talking about Motherhood Anxiety & Managing Expectations. Nobody likes to feel out of control of their own life. We generally avoid things that make us feel incompetent or scared, or that push us too far outside of our COMFORT ZONES…….now, I don’t know about you, but I’d say having a baby or raising a child does a pretty good job at all of those things - and that can be INCREDIBLY anxiety-induc...

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders.
