Answering your burning questions

This week on The Crystal Paine Show, Jesse and I are doing a fun episode together answering your burning questions. Listen to previous episodes of The Crystal Paine Show here.

Guess what? We’re trying something different for today’s episode!

So many of you have asked such great questions and I haven’t had a chance to answer many of them, so today’s episode is completely devoted to answering your burning questions!

Jesse is joining me and we’re answering them together — and neither of us prepped anything ahead of time so these are totally on the fly!

One of the questions is about picking a new hobby. Mine would involve either a spinning wheel or sports. (Those probably sound pretty dramatically different!)

We’ll also chat about what we like about living in Tennessee, and why the rain amazed us so much the first time we saw it here.

We talk about our favorite desserts AND how to develop the willpower to cut back on (or eliminate) sugar. The answer depends a lot on whether you’re internally motivated (like me) or externally motivated (like Jesse).

Tune in to hear about all these things, as well as what career we would choose if we weren’t doing what we do, our worst financial decision ever, our favorite date nights, life without a credit card, whether I’ve ever not followed through with something (hint: YES!), and whether we’ve talked to our kids about dating or courting.

If you’d like for us to do another episode like this again in the future, let me know!

In This Episode:

[01:19] – If we had to pick a new hobby, what would it be?

[04:21] – What’s our favorite thing about living in Tennessee?

[06:49] – Am I really supposed to pick just one favorite dessert?!

[08:23] – The next question was about tips on developing the willpower to cut back on sugar. (Oops! Maybe this one shouldn’t have come right after the question about dessert??)

[13:30] – If we had to choose a different career, what would we choose?

[16:40] – We talk about the worst financial decision we’ve ever made, and what we learned from it.

[20:01] – We’ve been asked a lot about how we manage to live without a credit card. We share what we’ve learned and we discuss why I’ve chosen not to have a credit card while Jesse does have one now.

[24:45] – Is there anything we’ve started and not followed through with? Oh yes! We laugh about how much we’ve learned when it comes to goal-setting.

[28:35] – A lot of people have asked if we’ve talked to our kids about dating and courtship and how we’re planning to approach this with our kids. We share some really candid thoughts on this — and they might surprise you!

How to Be Brave

I was kind of giddy about doing today’s interview… because I had listened to Melissa Radke’s audiobook, Eat Cake, Be Brave, and had fallen in love with her hilarious, tell-it-like-it-is honesty and couldn’t wait to get to talk to her in person (well, it was actually over Skype, but that was a big step up from just listening to her on audiobook!)

In our conversation, we dig deep into bravery, forgiveness, and rising above negativity. As Melissa explains, bravery doesn’t always mean jumping out of a plane, scaling Everest, or not feeling fear or nervousness in your everyday life.

Instead, being brave means to just keep showing up, even when things get hard. And she definitely understands things being hard! She’s gone through a lot of disappointment, hurt, loss, and heartache in her life. But she hasn’t let those hold her back from continuing to show up.

You won’t want to miss this powerful episode with a truly incredible guest. If you’ve been struggling with forgiveness, fear, anxiety, insecurity, and trying to be brave (and don’t we all struggle with those things sometimes?), I think Melissa’s wisdom will truly touch you deeply and offer you practical encouragement and inspiration on how to move forward.

In This Episode:

[01:57] – I talk about what’s saving my life this week: how I’m making time for reading. Listen in for my tips on how I’m typically fitting in 30-60 minutes of reading every day. Hopefully it will give you some ideas on how you, too, can fit in more reading time! 

[04:16] – This parenting book is one I can’t stop talking about — and truly loved!

[07:46] – I think you are going to LOVE today’s guest, Melissa Radke! She is hilarious but is also such a truth-teller.

[11:14] – Melissa talks about bravery, how she’s facing her fears right now, and how she still struggles with being brave. She lets us in on what bravery looks like for her and the hard-won lessons she’s learned on how to be brave.

[14:18] – One of the parts of the book that was deeply moving to me was when Melissa shares about forgiving the woman who had an emotional affair with her husband. This woman also happened to be her very best friend. She shares openly about what this was like to walk through this — and to write about it in the book.

[19:25] – Melissa offers powerful words to women who are struggling to hold onto their dreams and goals despite critical words being directed at them.

[23:50] – We change gears to a much more lighthearted tone and talk about a book Melissa is reading that she assumed many other guests have talked about. (Surprise! No one has!)

[24:34] – And then we talk about bacon and air fryers… and you just might need to order one after you hear this part of the podcast! 🙂

[27:04] – Today’s Q&A question comes from Jeanette, who wants to know how to get teens to keep their room clean. I give some caveats before I share my thoughts on this!

YNAB Platforms

Sponsor Spotlight

This episode is sponsored by YouNeedaBudget.com — the budgeting software we have personally used for the past two years and absolutely love.

We were introduced to this budgeting software by my brother-in-law, Justin, a few years ago. He and my husband, Jesse, are both what I would lovingly refer to as “nerds”.

You know the kind of people… those people who think spreadsheets are fun. And who geek out over features in Excel. Yup, those kinds of people.

You might as well poke my eyeballs out with a hot iron rod than get to me be giddy over creating spreadsheets. But nevertheless, I love Spreadsheet Nerds because they help keep people like me in line and on track! 

Anyway, it was around Christmas time and Justin started telling Jesse about YouNeedaBudget — what we call YNAB for short. Jesse and I had both heard of this software before, but we had been using Quicken for so long that we’d not considered changing to anything else.

Well, when Jesse saw the features of YNAB, he was intrigued enough to sign up for the free trial. And it was pretty much love at first sight.

Truthfully, I can’t even begin to tell you how often I’ve heard him exclaiming to me, to friends, or just to himself something about, “How cool and helpful YNAB is!”

I’m such a pen and paper and cash girl, but after all his raving reviews, I finally gave in and downloaded it on my phone and had him show me how it works. It’s really, really impressive. I love how we can see exactly how we’re doing in every budget in just one glance.

And since we have multiple budgets for our businesses and personal, it allows us to track them all in one app. Which is so handy!

They usually only offer a 30-day trial, but they are giving you all a FREE 60-day trial so you can really get a feel for it and see how well it works. 

Go here to sign up for your FREE 60-Day YNAB trial.

The Year That Changed the Trajectory of Our Lives

Guess what? Thanks to popular demand, Jesse is back on today’s episode of The Crystal Paine Show! And this time, he’s joining me for the entire episode. We didn’t really plan it… he was just sitting across from me when I went live and his mic was turned on. As you’ll hear… he jumped right in! 😉

We disagree about the weather, we talk about our new shower filter and how it’s made such a difference in our lives, and I ask Jesse to share about the books he’s been reading.

And then we pick up right where we left off in our story last time. If you remember back to our last episode, we told you about a hard place that we were in, both personally and financially.

Jesse had just lost his job, our second daughter had just been born, I was suffering from postpartum depression, and our marriage was on the rocks. That’s the point where we pick up the story today. In this episode, we share about how Jesse’s struggle to find a job and our desperate place of needing to pay the bills actually inspired us to do some outside-the-box things.

Little did we dream that what we would experiment with and set up during that dark time in our lives would end up changing the entire trajectory of our lives. In fact, there is a very good chance I wouldn’t have this podcast or run MoneySavingMom.com or be living in TN or have the opportunity to help and impact millions around the world or have the wonderful friendships here we do if it weren’t for that dark season of our lives.

You never know what how God might use a really difficult season in your life to prepare you for something bigger and greater than you could ever dream or imagine!

In This Episode:

[01:48] – Jesse’s mic is live — surprise! (I didn’t even realize it when we went live. I thought he was just going to wait to go live until later on in the show. But nope… that’s not his style if he’s sitting in front of a live mic! And I loved that he got to jump in at various parts to share!)

[02:24] – My hair had been looking icky ever since we moved into our new house… I finally figured out what the problem was and share in this episode the inexpensive solution we came up with!

[06:39] – I asked Jesse to share what he’s reading right now. And we explain why I don’t ask him this question every month, unlike my other guests. I love how honest he is and how we are so different when it comes to books and reading.

[08:11] – Jesse and I talk about why we love You Need a Budget, this episode’s amazing sponsor, and Jesse shares more about how it works for him.

[11:09] – We recount the time in our lives when Jesse was unemployed and I ask Jesse to share more how it was for him to walk through that dark time.

[16:05] – I share about how that time in our lives propelled me to start MoneySavingMom.com — and how I envisioned it was just going to be this little extra thing I did on the side.

[18:02] – Jesse got a contract position at a big law firm right around the time I started MoneySavingMom.com and he shares more about that and how he grew so much from the various audiobooks and podcasts he listened to while doing pretty mindless document review at the law firm.

[18:56] – MoneySavingMom.com took off from the get-go and far exceeded our wildest expectations. Within a year, we were making a full-time income from it. 

[22:34] – Jesse and I open up about how so many people expected us to buy a house right out of law school and how people thought we were kind of nuts to keep renting. But we look back and are so glad that we did.

[25:15:] – We share more about our crazy goal to pay cash for a house in 5 years and how this motivated us to continue to live as frugally as possible. 

[26:08] – In hindsight, we can see so clearly how God used that difficult year to humble us, shape us, strengthen our marriage, and teach us to dream bigger. And to lead us on this journey we never anticipated… we’ll share more about that in our next episode!

How to stop procrastinating and do the next right thing

Well y’all, after 19 podcast episodes, I’m finally feeling like I’m starting to get my feet underneath me and feel more comfortable with this whole podcasting. So, even though it scared me a lot, this is the first episode where I didn’t plan out every word I was going to say.

That’s a big deal for me as one of my big goals for this year is to be as comfortable on the podcast as I am on live video… but I keep reminding myself that it took at least 30-50 live videos before I started feeling confident. So I know it will take time with the podcast, too.

(In full disclosure, it’s good for my pride for me to put out episodes that aren’t at the level of excellence I’d love for them to be because I’m still finding my groove when it comes to doing pre-recorded audio — which is SO different to me than live video! And every time someone writes in about how they don’t like the podcast because they can tell I’m uncomfortable, it’s a good reminder for me to keep persevering and practicing and getting better!)

So I’m celebrating that I took tiny baby steps with this episode and didn’t rely on word-for-word notes as a security blanket! And I hope that someday soon, I’ll be able to record episodes with just a rough outline. Thanks for being on this learning and growing journey with me. Your encouragement and support has blessed me more than you know!

In this episode, I invited one of my very favorite podcasters — Emily P. Freeman — to join me for a conversation about decision-making. We talk about the best antidote for procrastination, how to know what your next right thing is, and why sometimes now is not the best time to jump into an idea you have.

I also ask Emily about her Theme Days and how this practice works out in her life and how it has helped her be a lot more focused and productive.

By the way, Emily’s podcast (that I adore!) is called The Next Right Thing… and her brand-new book with the same title comes out in April. You can pre-order it here.

You’ll want to tune in to this episode where Emily shares the story of how her amazing podcast was actually originally a book idea.

She started working on the book and then realized it wasn’t supposed to be a book; it was supposed to be a podcast. But then, after a number of months of podcasting, she felt it was supposed to be book, too. 

I love how Emily is so honest in sharing her struggles with decision-making and what she has learned in her own life — even in podcasting and writing a book about decision-making!

In This Episode:

[01:12] – I gave up coffee a few years ago. I know, can you believe it? I share why I gave it up and what I’m drinking instead.

[05:38] – My book of the week is one that I listened to and one that I wanted to jump up and shout “preach it!” multiple times while I was listening to it! (And I’m not a charismatic person; this book was just THAT good!)

[09:20] – Emily Freeman has deeply inspired me through her writings and her podcast, and I’m so honored that she was willing to do an interview with me for this episode.

[11:30] – The Next Right Thing, Emily’s podcast, was originally a book idea. I ask her how long of a process was it for her to decide to turn her idea into a podcast instead of a book? When did she know for sure that it wasn’t supposed to be a book?

[14:53] – Struggling with decision-making? Emily shares some strategies for someone who needs to figure out what the next right thing is.

[17:57] – Emily makes a powerful point that many people would rather make a decision (even a bad one) than live with the uncertainty of not deciding.

[20:36] – Recently, Emily talked about how she structures her week with Theme Days. I asked her to share more about this in detail.

[25:48] – For today’s Q&A segment, I answer a question from a listener about how I got off my allergy medications (and other medications/supplements I was taking for acne and anxiety!).

How to make family dinner a priority

Now that it’s February, the excitement of the new year has probably started to fade for you. And it’s around this time of the year that it can begin to feel like you just want to give up on your goals for 2019.

This week’s episode of The Crystal Paine Show might be just the shot in the arm you need to get back on track! I’m chatting with Tiffany King from Eat At Home Cooks — a woman who has made it her mission to help busy women spend less time and effort in the kitchen and more time as a family. 

Tune in to learn about why eating together as a family has been so impactful for Tiffany and her family (even though she readily admits it’s been a struggle at times — especially when her kids were young!).

We’ll talk about how to stop over-complicating dinner, why it’s okay to have super simple dinners (and we’ll give you some ideas for what might work for your family), and how to deal with trying to juggle multiple schedules and evening activities as your kids get older!

By the way, if you’d like more help, I have put together a free Eat at Home Challenge. I’ll send you a one-week grocery list + menu plan + a quick and easy crockpot recipe for each day and lots of money-saving and time-saving tips and suggestions. Plus, you’ll get access to a private Facebook Group to give you more accountability.

Go here to sign up for the free Eat at Home Challenge!

In This Episode:

[01:40] – This week, what’s saving my life is my very favorite magnesium. I share why I take it, how much I take, when I take it, and how it’s helped me sleep better and be healthier.

[03:41] – I finally picked my top reads from 2018 (better late than never, eh?) I tell you about them on this episode!

[06:52] – This episode’s amazing sponsor is You Need a Budget. We’ve personally used this software for years and love it!

[09:30] – Having a plan for dinner (and having it already made) is one of the best ways I’ve found to reduce chaos in the evening and spend more time with my kids.

[13:47] – If you struggle to get dinner on the table at night, you’ll be encouraged with Tiffany’s tips + you’ll be inspired to hear how eating together as a family has made such a difference in their home.

[16:42] – I ask Tiffany about what to do when you have kids who have evening activities or older kids with differing schedules. She shares her go-to recipes for nights when the family needs to eat at shifts instead of all together at the same time.

[18:53] – Tiffany offers advice on quick and easy meal ideas for people who feel tired and stressed out, or don’t have much time or energy. She also shares about her meal-planning system, and what gave her the inspiration to start making meal plans.

[26:21] – I promised you a freebie at the beginning of this episode and here it is! I put together a week-long eat-at-home challenge based on Tiffany’s menu plans to give you a taste of what they’re like. Head to this link to sign up!

[27:47] – How do you get everyone out the door on time and peacefully? I share some strategies and advice that has worked well for our family — including some words of hope for young moms!

Infertility and Why We Chose Open Adoption

I’m doing something I’ve never done on my podcast before this week… I’m doing an entirely interview-driven episode.

I usually try to keep interviews with guests to around 15 minutes and then we devote the other 15 minutes of the podcast to other segments. But as I was prepping for this particular interview, I just had this feeling that I needed to go longer in the interview. That in order for you to really hear the story well, I needed to allow the entire 30 minutes for the interview.

So that’s what we did — and I hope that this story and interview blesses you deeply. I truly believe it will.

My guest on this podcast is Rachel Nielson. She and I first met when she traveled with me and a small team of blog readers to South Africa (you can read about her thoughts on our time there and see a few pictures here.)

Rachel is joining me today to share her incredible story of infertility and adoption. But more than that, she’s going to share how she walked through learning to love someone when it was hard to love them and how she will never regret that decision.

Even if you don’t struggle with infertility and even if you’ve never considered adoption, I believe her story will powerfully resonate with you — and it didn’t turn out like you would expect, but I think you will be inspired and challenged by her words.

In This Episode:

[02:05] – Rachel takes us back to the beginning of her marriage and shares her thoughts on motherhood from those days. She shares why they ended up deciding to do fertility treatments AND pursue adoption at the same time and the struggles and hard things they went through during such an emotionally taxing and physically exhausting time.

[05:41] – I asked Rachel if she felt lonely during this time… and I wasn’t prepared for how honest her answer would be. She talks about the deep loneliness she felt in her marriage and what helped her to walk through that (she gives some spot-on relationship advice that you don’t want to miss!)

[08:11] – Rachel shares really vulnerably what it was like to be in the middle of fertility treatments and she shares encouragement and some practical advice for those who are going through them.

[13:37] – The story of how Noah’s birth mom found Rachel and her husband and asked them to adopt Noah is pretty incredible! 

[17:11] – What was it like for Rachel to be in the delivery room as her adoptive son was being born? She shares how it was a holy moment and how strong and brave Noah’s birth mom was.

[19:26] – Navigating an open adoption had its challenges — especially as Noah’s birth mom grieved and walked through some of her own hard times. Rachel talks about how this was a challenge to know what to do, but she ultimately decided to choose to love instead of pulling away. (If you only have a little bit of time, please listen to this part of the episode. It has convicted me so deeply!)

[24:53] – Rachel shares the next steps of the story after the first few years of Noah’s birth, including an unexpected and tragic turn of events. She ends the episode sharing about how the story is still being written, but she’s so grateful for the fact that her body didn’t work and she wasn’t able to get pregnant like she wanted, because God had something much more beautiful in store than she could have imagined!
