Girls Night #185: Creating your own family culture (why it matters and how to do it!) — with Jodi Mockabee

Hey friends! Welcome to Girls’ Night! I’m so excited about today’s episode. Today we’re talking about how to create your own family culture — what that means, why it’s so important, and then how to practically do it! To be honest, this is something I’ve thought about a lot since becoming a mom, but it’s also something I thought about even before having kids!  If you’re anything like me, you’ve had this idea that your family needs to do things a certain way — this could be in any category: The way you eat, spend money, spend time, what you value, what you prioritize, how you do holidays, and more. These ideas might come from the way you were raised — the way your parents did things — or from how your friends are doing things or from social media. But over the years I’ve been learning something that’s been incredibly freeing for me: Your family culture should be a reflection of YOU. There’s not one right way to do this. You get to decide what this looks like. And that’s what we’re talking about today! Our guest for this episode is our new friend, Jodi Mockabee. Jodi is a photographer, writer, blogger, speaker, social media influencer, and mother of five. She has a new book called, The Whole and Healthy Family and I can’t wait to talk more about it! Here are just a few of the questions I’ll be asking Jodi in the episode: Where do we begin with creating a healthy family culture and what does that look like? How do we sort through the things we experienced as a child and determine what we want to be a part of our family life and what we want to do differently? Is it okay if the way we do things is different from what others in our inner circles are doing? How do we form a family culture that aligns with our values? And so much more! One of my favorite parts of the episode is when Jodi shares a story about a choice her family made when attending church and how that one decision positively impacted their whole congregation! It’s super cool. I can’t wait for you to hear from her! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

Each week on the podcast, one of Stephanie’s girlfriends comes over to chat about a topic that is central to our hearts as women. They talking about friendship, faith, relationships and self-confidence—as well as our calling in life and how to create a life we love! Each episode feels like that conversation that takes place around the kitchen island, late at night in your comfiest sweatpants, a La Croix in one hand and a slice of pizza in the other, where wisdom and laughter abound.
