#118 –A Conversation with Lyndsie Jones

Episode Notes

As a stay-at-home mother, Lyndsie Jones never thought she would be a parent to twelve children. Born and raised in Provo, Utah, her parents divorced when she was four years old and lived with her mother and 3 older siblings. Her maternal grandparents took care of her most of her formative years and gave her a beautiful childhood amongst the challenges. Due to her mother’s mental illness, she moved into a relative’s home at the age of thirteen where she had consistent, healthy, loving parental figures through her teenage years. After high school she started college with a focus in psychology, however, plans changed when she met and married her first husband and shortly thereafter gave birth to their first son. Through the years the marriage was increasingly turbulent, and the number of children grew to six as the marriage ended in divorce. While single-parenting six children, she started an in-home daycare while attending college to complete her associates in behavioral science, and after her bachelor’s in elementary education. She met a wonderful man with five children. They married just before the covid pandemic, bringing the total number of children to 11. The next year brought another little baby, making a total an even dozen. Together, Eric and Lyndsie parent a house full of chaos and love as they navigate life.

#115 –A Conversation with Virginia Heiner

Episode Notes

I am Virginia Heiner, I was born and raised in Utah. I was adopted at birth. I met my now husband in High School but it is important to note that we were not high school sweethearts. We hung out in the same crowd and went on 1 date in which I asked him and his mom responded for him. It's a funny story but essentially he was a stalker and very persistent, clearly he won as we have been married for 18 years and counting and have 4 amazing kids. We currently reside in Holladay, UT in the home my Mother-in-Law grew up in. Among being a Mom, Wife and all the other titles we gather as we grow through life. I work as an English/American Sign Language Interpreter in our community serving the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and Hearing community. Bridging language and cultural barriers. I enjoy cooking, but not cleaning up afterwards to remedy that I came up with a great system. Rule my home is if you cooked dinner you don't have to clean up afterwards. Win for me! I enjoy naps, spending time with my family and friends. I am an extrovert through and through. If you meet me, I consider you a friend and you are stuck with me. I strongly believe that we are ultimately responsible for ourselves, owning my errors and even our own trauma and healing, I strongly believe in helping others whenever possible. And that we should always show kindness and love to others. Showing up daily with compassion and empathy towards our fellow humans that are growing in this life is the ultimate task and isn't always easy to do.
