On the Recapture Self podcast it’s our intention to give you a peek at the lives of people who are balancing daily life, parenthood, and a commitment to their creative selves. These are people who are making time and space for their passion projects whether that be writing a book, designing a blog, photographing their family, or running a business.

PREPARE TO BE INSPIRED BY THEIR STORIES.

This week I’m chatting with Heather Gonzalez.

Heather Gonzalez is a stay-at-home mom, wellness coach, lover of all things sweet, and working on living each day in gratitude. In previous chapters of her life, Heather has been an elementary teacher, math coach, and baking business owner, but found her true passion of helping other women who have gone through traumatic life events after going through one of her own.

Heather is currently working on creating an online community and blog as a safe place to connect, share, and support women as they navigate life after trauma and to help them feel less alone during this difficult stage of life.

This week I’m chatting with Nick and Katherine North.

Katherine was a cynic who didn't even believe in true love...until she accidentally fell in love at almost 40-years-old with her best friend, Nick.

But when they fell in love, he wasn't "Nick"... he was "Nikki." And, Nikki was pregnant with baby #4!

Assigned female at birth, Nick always knew deep down he was a man trapped in a woman's body. A stay-at-home pregnant mom and family photographer who didn’t think life could ever be any different, he was stuck in a life that should have made him happy but wasn’t his own.

Together, they navigated Nick's transition from female to male as a couple and as parents and as business owners.

They negotiated the challenges of transitioning while blending a family and keeping their businesses afloat. They continue maneuvering through marriage, parenting five kids, nontraditional gender roles (who pays the bills and does the dishes?,) and so much more.

With true stories, embarrassing anecdotes, and practical advice, Nick and Katherine show their audience and clients how to start taking brave steps in their own lives, wherever they are starting.

Nick and Katherine recently received a grant from Storyhive to create a documentary film about their family called “Just Another Beautiful Family” and are developing the "Beautiful Families" project which will include a conference, podcast, and supportive online community for all sorts of nontraditional families. They have appeared on numerous stages and media outlets.

This week I’m chatting with Natalie Allgyer.

Natalie Allgyer is a photo artist, with a fiercely creative soul who uses a camera and photoshop to display a wide array of feeling and emotion. She learned her craft on her own and continues to hone it weekly.

Born in NJ she and her husband chose Charleston, SC as the place for them to raise their daughter. It was in Charleston that Natalie found her soul, and the creativity began to flow thru the lens of her camera. At one point she decided that reality wasn’t conveying her message as deeply as she felt it so she took to photoshop. That is where the magic began.

Natalie’s whimsical style incorporates pieces of her own images that she makes with her dslr camera. It can take an upward of 20 images to create one of her works. She enjoys using elements of nature and the world around her in her art.  Her carefully curated color choices in combination with painstakingly thoughtful lighting, contrast, and texture lends itself to her empathic vibe and painterly feel.

Each of Natalie pieces are available as limited edition prints only. Once they run out that is it. There will be no more creations of that particular piece. Each print is printed on archival velvet paper, signed and numbered by Natalie herself, and each comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Natalie’s mission is to show you the world thru her eyes while also conveying feelings and vibes that just about each and every one of us could relate to in some way. Cheers and enjoy!

Today Beryl is chatting with Tsh Oxenreider, a wife, mother, blogger, podcaster, world traveler, and fixer-upper. Basically, she's a mama of all trades! While living in Turkey with her husband she struggled with depression, and through it all, she founded her blog, The Art of Simple, as a creative outlet. She has since found her true life purpose and helps others to do the same!

Tsh recently authored a new book At Home in the World: Reflections on Belonging While Wandering the Globe, and her writing has been featured in the Washington Post, CNN, Real Simple magazine, and more. A graduate of the University of Texas, where she studied English and anthropology, Tsh currently lives in the Austin, Texas area with her family and eats tacos several times a week.

Listen in as they discuss:

 

  • Finding creativity during a depression, while in a totally new country across the world.
  • How living simply can be completely freeing.
  • Different types of creativity, and how it doesn't always have to mean art.
  • Finding your life's purpose, even when that task seems super daunting.

 

 

Alright Recapture self friends, it's your turn. Time for this episode's homework.
