18: Living Intentionally with Courtney DeFeo
Guys, you’re about to meet your new best friend….. Courtney DeFeo
We had so much fun chatting with Courtney! She is the author of In This House, We Will Giggle, creator of ABC Scripture Cards and Virtue Cards and the kindness movement Light ‘Em Up Acts. She is a sought-after speaker and contributing writer appearing on familiar sites and stages such as Focus on the Family, Mops International, Proverbs 31 and Parents Magazine.
We cover just about everything in our conversation with Courtney! We chat about being “courage lenders”, our obsession with the Greatest Showman, the million dreams that keep her awake and how she successfully brought some of those dreams to life! One of our favorite takeaways was when she talked about how to align your life with what you value most. Guys, she is stinkin hilarious, and we just never wanted this conversation to end. We were so impacted by our conversation with Courtney Defeo we know you will be too! Enjoy!

“Ask yourselves, what do we want to be known for, and then fiercely protect your time and your money spent on that with your kids.”
“Balance is a very personal thing which means you have to go to God and say what are you asking me to do in this season?”
