  • #234 College, Drug Lords, Billboards & Totalitarianism in America
    After nine months of traveling outside of the USA (to 17+ countries from Tromsø to Cairo), we return to take care of some things that will help us make a permanent transition to our home base in Portugal... But as usual, there are things that STAND OUT to us as we visit this country after an extended absence. In this episode, we share what those things are, and -- in the bigger picture -- why they are significant to our families, the nation, and the world as a whole. RESOURCES MENTIONED: - Wild Swans by Jung Chang - Animal Farm by George Orwell - 1984 by George Orwell - In Order to Live by Yeonmi Park - The Psychology of Totalitarianism by Mattias Desmet OTHER RESOURCES: #138 Thou Shalt Follow the Science (Dark Horse Podcast) Does History Repeat Itself? with Mattias Desmet #373 Social Justice: A Religious Movement (Jordan Peterson Podcast) #380 A Resurgence of Vision with Vivek Ramaswamy #363 Rekindling the Spirit of the Classic Democrat with Robert F.

  • #233 The Impending Unraveling (and Collapse?) of Society -- How to Protect Your Family
    In this episode, we philosophize (are you surprised?) about observations we've been making for the past decade or more as we've read, studied, and traveled to 50+ countries. It's kind of like putting together a puzzle. You take one piece after another and see where they fit and little by little a picture begins to emerge. In this case, the picture that's forming shows the current state of the world and the impending disasters that seem to lurk around the bend. We expound on a few of them, get angry about a few others, rant and rave a little, and then share strategies to help protect yourself and your family. We may not be able to stop the avalanche of disaster, but we can get out of the way. We also open up about our own fears in 'speaking up' or speaking out -- and the necessity for ALL of us to raise our voices. Because all that's required for the triumph of evil is for good men and women to do nothing. Tools & Resources mentioned in this episode: The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom by Yeonmi Park The Fourth Turning Animal Farm by George Orwell 1984 by George Orwell #157 Our Response to Incomprehensible Stupid Memes & Other Current Events #198 Masturbation & Cheap Sexual Acts Are Poor Substitutes for Real Connection Be the Man Masterclass 28-Day Challenge for Moms --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/extraordinary-family-life/message

  • #232 PROTECT Your Kids NOW from Traffickers & Sexual Abusers
    In this very important episode, Greg and I discuss first-hand knowledge we have about the growing industry of human trafficking. We also talk about sexual abuse, how it happens, and how to protect your kids. If you think it doesn't happen in your neighborhood, church, or community -- think again! It is a REAL threat and it is EVERYWHERE. It's happened to us, too. What actions can you take to protect your family? That's what we cover in this episode, along with WHY and HOW human trafficking has become a major world issue and what you can do to fight it. Organizations we recommend supporting: Aerial Recovery Group (the organization Greg works with) Watch this video of a recent mission: https://youtu.be/fY98pTctTHk?si=sWQkOsDqmWosgW1S Free a Girl https://www.freeagirl.us/ Fight The New Drug https://fightthenewdrug.org/ --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/extraordinary-family-life/message

  • #231 Stop Lying to Your Kids — Speak ONLY Truth to Gain More Influence
    We've never told any of our 7 children there is a Santa Clause or a Tooth Fairy. That's because we always wanted to be seen as people our children can believe and trust -- NO MATTER WHAT -- especially when it comes to discerning truth in the world and discovering what is real and what is not. And while it's not just about Santa Clause, this approach of ALWAYS speaking Truth is one of the key philosophies that has helped us to raise children, teens, and young adults who truly trust, believe, and seek out our advice, even into young adulthood. It is an approach that has led them to know that we will ALWAYS be straight with them -- no matter if it's about their health, weight, looks, friends, ideas, dates, or choices. No matter what questions they have, they can come to us and get REAL answers. We won't be overly harsh, but we also won't sugarcoat things. We won't underplay the risks, but we won't exaggerate them either. We don't know all the answers, but we will share everything we do know to be true -- whether it's about faith, religion, quantum physics, history, wellness, money, or our personal choices. And our kids can trust what we tell them TRUTH because we've NEVER intentionally told them something that wasn't true or tried to convince them of stories or myths are reality. We still like to pretend and make-believe and we love stories and myths and using our imagination (mythology and science fiction are my kids' favorite genres) -- but we are honest with our kids when it's a STORY and when it is TRUTH -- when we're teasing and pretending and when it's REAL. We completely respect other people's beliefs and practices, and we're definitely not condemning people for telling their kids to believe in Santa. But we do have a very interesting conversation in this episode about lies, honesty, and the power of influence that comes into your relationships when you commit to speaking only Truth.

  • #230 How to Handle the Stress & Pressure of Family Life and to Move Into Higher Level Emotions
    I (Rachel) cried today. It was because of the stress and pressure and overwhelm of 'all the things' I have to get done by a looming deadline, and it was sparked by the small irritations of family life. So Greg and I do what we usually do in a situation like this -- we sat down and psychoanalyzed WHY I was crying so we could process the 'emotional stacking' to help me get back to a positive state (and then recorded this episode 😁 ). But this isn't something I do only when I cry or feel overwhelmed by stress. This is a similar process to something I do on my own anytime I'm feeling a lower-level emotion that is below contentment or satisfaction -- things like disappointment, doubt, worry, irritation, frustration, or discouragement. This is the same process Greg has been doing for 20+ years -- anytime he feels doubt, worry, dissatisfaction, impatience, irritation, frustration, or discontent. In fact, he's gotten so good at it that, unless appropriate, he's learned to process these lower-level emotions in seconds so he can very quickly return to higher-level emotions like passion, excitement, love, enthusiasm, and joy, which is where he spends 95+% of his time. How did we learn to do this? How do we manage to remain in a positive mental and emotional state MOST of the time -- despite all of the stress, strain, challenge, and pressure required to run a business, homeschool and raise 7-kids, travel to 50+ countries, and live a high-achieving, extraordinary family life? Listen to this episode now to learn how we do it and how YOU can do it too.
