(Formerly Throwback Parenting) Lynnette and Greg Sheppard believe in raising grownups, not children. This husband and wife pair have spent the past 20 + years in the trenches of raising five very different children, most of whom have insanely strong wills. In the process, they have learned a few things about responsible, respectful, resilient, self-disciplined, independent, faithful young adults who are prepared to meet the challenges of life. They want to share their knowledge and experienc ...
 
Jamin and Wendy had six children in seven years. Even though they are both former school teachers, their two personalities are very different, and here they explore the differences and compromises that make their happy home. Wendy is an encouraging, optimistic, d-i-y, artsy stereotype of a kindergarten teacher. Jamin is practical, cynical, and contrary. Listen as they both share their perspectives in ridiculously candid fashion on homeschooling, family culture, housekeeping, and your questio ...

I’m busy preparing for my interviews for season three. For now, here’s a continuation of season two to start the new year and I’ll be back with a brand new focus for season 3. We have fun and share some personal stories covering the Childbirth and Childrearing years and end with Empty Nest Years. Listen for your Hope Keys and I would love for you t…
 
When our son, Andrew, was halfway through his junior year of high school, he started to have thoughts of self-harm that caught him completely off-guard. After meeting with a counselor a short time later, he determined that the unwelcomed thoughts were a manifestation of anxiety. In the years since then, Andrew has learned how to manage his anxiety …
 
For as long as I can remember, I have loved spending time in the kitchen. It is a form of therapy for me to chop vegetables and create delicious meals out of seemingly boring ingredients. But, even more than therapy, food is about connection, tradition, and creating memories. Today I am excited to introduce you to my dear friend, Bobbi Wood. She an…
 
I am the mother of five kids whom I love. I love their friends. I believe in this strong and noble generation of youth. But, sometimes, my finite mind has difficulty grasping how God can have such faith and trust in young people when they have such limited understanding and experience. The truth is, however, that He has always used the youth to acc…
 
You may have heard me talk about my insanely strong-willed eldest son and how he threw us for a loop as a child. You may have heard me describe how he spit in my face, threw books at my head, and tried to run away at age seven. In those early years, I honestly feared he would end up in prison. Things have changed drastically since then. When Greg a…
 
There is no doubt that courageous parenting is required to raise children in this tricky age of technology. Should we give our kids smartphones, and at what age? How much should we monitor? How much should we filter? Which filter should we use? One thing I have learned, however, is that external filters and monitoring software are fallible. The onl…
 
With a new year upon us, self-improvement is the word on the street. Resolutions and goals are all the rage and for good reason. A blank slate and a world of possibilities make big things feel doable. But if we are talking about making 2020 the best year yet, it makes sense to add a couple of parenting goals into the mix. 1. WRITE A PARENTING MANIF…
 
Welcome to Season 2 of the newly-rebranded How to Raise Grownups Podcast. In this episode, we talk about the spiritual experience that prompted the rebrand and what you can expect from here us in the coming months. We believe in the youth of today - in our kids and your kids. We believe they were born to accomplish incredible things for the Lord an…
 
This episode is the season II finale of Hope and Encouragement for Your Journey podcast! This season has been about Relationships! We’ve had some heavy challenges that my guest have gone through and beautiful victories. Each have shared with such transparency. For this final episode with a focus on relationships, my husband, Rodson joins me and so …
 
Sometimes, clarity comes after stepping away. The noise quiets and light peeks through the fog, illuminating a path that has been just out of view but now beckons with the hopeful promise of something amazing. I have been taking a break from social media, which is always heaven-sent for me. We are steeped in mission preparation, with one day left u…
 
After a harsh upbringing in a “Christian home” and the trauma of a failed marriage at a very young age, Lori finally found a new beginning with a new husband. There was excitement and a new adventure with God as she and her husband felt called to move out of the United States into another country where they could serve God and care for orphaned chi…
 
A few weeks ago, I saw a meme on Facebook with this message: "My parents made rules and I didn't even dream of questioning them. I make rules and my kid demands a 10 page thesis on why, how, what, when, and just so you know Mum, it's not happening." Mumlyfe I shared it on my page because I thought it was interesting (and a little disconcerting). On…
 
As parents, we have two choices: we can make purposeful parenting decisions, or we can fly by the seat of our pants and see how it goes. With a constant stream of distractions, it is easy to fall into the latter category. However, we will probably not end up where we want to be unless we consistently make intentional parenting decisions. Author and…
 
Lately, I have been thinking about the noisy world in which we live. There are countless voices competing for our time and attention, and it is difficult to weed through the chaos and figure out who we should listen to. I don't know about you, but I get overwhelmed by it all. Pulled in a thousand directions by a thousand different GOOD things, I al…
 
The world could use a little more kindness, and kindness begins with each one of us. But how do we teach our kids to be kind when unkindness is so abundant? I have been wanting to publish a podcast about this topic for quite some time, and I knew that Kay West needed to be the one to teach us. She is one of the kindest, most encouraging people I kn…
 
There are singers and then there are worshipers. Pastor Ricardo White is a Worshiper. His life’s journey to become a worshiper is fascinating. However the deep, longing that draws the Lords presence comes in part from living through an unexpected trial of walking through the death of his first wife. Words in print could never convey the trauma of l…
 
How to help kids manage their emotions is one of the biggest concerns among parents who reach out to me. One mom recently told me that she was dealing with a massive emotional explosion at least every hour, and she is not alone. As a mom of five, I have been dealing with my kids' BIG emotions for over two decades. Some of them are HIGHLY emotional,…
 
From a recent poll on my Facebook page, I learned that the vast majority of parents (82% in this case) believe that raising a teenager is more difficult than raising a toddler. As a mom of teens, I understand why this is. For starters, teens prioritize their friend group over their family. They generally don't want to hear their parents' opinion. T…
 
As a mother of five, I have often wished that each child came with his or her own parenting manual. With how different they all are, I sometimes feel like I have to figure things out over and over because what works for one doesn't always work for the others. However, as a believer, I have come to understand that we do have a parenting manual in th…
 
Technology is one of my biggest concerns as a parent, partly because of the garbage that is so easily accessible online, and partly because it can be a huge distraction. It makes me crazy to watch my kids waste their time on their devices instead of doing other, more important things. The reality is, however, that technology is not going away and, …
 
School is getting underway for most people, which means a return to homework after a summer of relaxation (insert collective groan). I know many parents (and kids) struggle with near-daily battles over homework. Sometimes, the process takes several hours and is peppered with emotional landmines, leaving all involved frustrated and upset. But what i…
 
There are many assumptions made when people decide to marry. One is the ability to conceive around the time that is desired. Although all married couples do not want to have children, it is probably a question many newly married couples get; “So, when are you going to have children?” Imagine the pain at the time they begin to realize there is a pro…
 
I believe in the parenting principles that I teach here on the podcast, on my blog, and on social media. My belief has come through watching the transformative power of this parenting style in my life and in the lives of my children. My faith in God, however, is stronger than my faith in a particular parenting style. I believe that He knows our chi…
 
Sleep troubles are common in infancy and early childhood, often leaving both parents and children exhausted. Anybody who has ever dealt with sleep-challenged children knows the implications of chronic sleep deprivation. It affects every aspect of life and often results in near-constant overwhelm. When my kids were young, I believed sleep deprivatio…
 
Parent guilt (especially mom guilt) is a common thing. I have been there. In fact, I used to live in the land of guilt. When my kids were young, I felt guilty when they misbehaved because it was surely my fault. I felt guilty because everybody else seemed to have it together when I felt like a hot mess. I felt guilty when I allowed my kids to watch…
 
Raising hard-working kids is one of my main goals as a parent because work is one major secret to success in life. I know from my recent reader/listener survey that many of you share that goal and worry about how best to accomplish it. If you fit into that category, you are going to love today’s new episode with Blaine Wiggins. We discuss: How to t…
 
People from different countries, ethnicities and races have greater opportunities to interact with one another. We attend school, church, work and socialize together. Even beyond that, we can meet online which strips away almost any hindrances. Many boundaries and social constraints to intercultural and interracial unions no longer exist. Still the…
 
In Episode 23, we started our discussion about preparing children to serve missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If you haven't already listened to that episode, you might want to do that before listening to this episode, which is a continuation of that conversation. Find show notes here: http://www.lynnettesheppard.com/epis…
 
Our son has been serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the past two years. He came home last week, and we are beyond excited. The reunion was sweet, and we are trying to soak in every second of the time we have with him before he leaves for college in a few weeks. Our second son has his mission call and wil…
 
A strong marriage provides the foundation for a strong family. It nurtures a feeling of security in the kids and stability to the family unit, which is why I believe that the best gift we can ever give to our kids is a happy marriage. Whether we have been married for six months or, in our case, 22 years, there is always something we can do to stren…
 
As parents, part of our job is to raise money-smart kids who are well-versed in saving, sharing, and spending smart. That process can be daunting, especially if we do not come from a background of sound financial decisions. But have no fear, friends, because we are here to help. WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: The building blocks to learning (and teaching) ab…
 
I know I am not alone in wanting my kids to like each other in addition to loving each other. I want them to be friends and appreciate each other long in adulthood. But, some days, I wonder how I can facilitate that when they seem to be arguing every waking minute. The unfortunate reality is that we cannot force our kids to be best friends. They do…
 
For this episode we will hear the journey's of two beautiful women (Sharon Spirk & Wendy Crane) who have walked to forgiveness after one's marriage was disrupted by the other. I honor them for their honesty, vulnerability and transparency. Not many would reveal what is often hidden in the dark. Forgiveness is often easier said than done particularl…
 
I (Lynnette) just celebrated my 42nd birthday. To celebrate, we are doing something fun on the podcast: unmasking ourselves. Yep, that is right. We are breaking away from our typical parenting talk to tell you some things about us that you might not know, just for funsies. Greg and I each wrote a list of things about each other that you might find …
 
Helicopter parents are the cultural norm these days. They have good intentions and are trying to be the best parents they can be. The problem is that this style of parenting is not in the best interest of children because the underlying message is, "I don't trust you. You cannot do things without my help." If we, as parents, want to raise kids who …
 
Have you ever wondered about the role of consequences in parenting? Do you worry that the consequences you assign to your children's misbehavior are too harsh? Or not harsh enough? Do you wonder if you should use natural or logical consequences? Do you use the same consequences over and over, hoping that they will eventually produce the desired res…
 
We have 20+ years of experience raising strong-willed kids. (Only one out of five kids would I truly classify as easy-going.) With that experience, we have learned a thing or two about what to do and what to avoid like the plague. And also how to keep your sanity because these kids know how to push their parents' buttons like a boss. Along with pus…
 
He’s attractive, wanted to be married and he had a job. In fact, he was a Pastor. He had plenty of attractive women interested in him. However, no one felt quite right. There was not one single women he wanted to ask to become his wife. Was something wrong with him? Was he just too picky? That is exactly what his close friends were saying. His 20’s…
 
There are times when I look around at what I am up against - what we are up against - in attempting to raise children who can maintain faith in a world that discourages it at every turn, and I feel a little bit like Aragorn's army in Tolkien's classic novel, Return of the King. There are times when I feel a sense of fear, even panic when I wonder h…
 
Boredom is the universal curse of summer break. But do not fret, my friend, because I am here to help. With five kids who are now mostly teens and young adults, I have been through a summer or two (or 20) with a houseful of bored children. And you know what I have learned? Boredom is a blessing. I know what you are thinking: "What do you mean bored…
