  • E024: Into the Woods-- Vaughn Cuccio
    on August 2, 2022 at 5:00 am by Erin Cuccio

    About Vaughn
    Vaughn Cuccio is the son of Blake and Erin Cuccio.  An absolute outdoorsman at heart, he loves to spend every moment he can hunting, fishing, or being in the woods.  When he isn't outside, he loves to drum.  Since he was old enough to stand, he's been beating on just about everything he can find and lucky for everyone, he found his rhythm.  

    Today, Vaughn joins me to talk about his recent experience at Camp Ch-Yo-Ca's Sportsman's Camp and why this time in his life-- turning 12 and transitioning to middle school-- is so very important.  I may be biased, but he's a good one.  Be prepared for a wealth of education in the great outdoors, but also some important nuggets of wisdom straight from the mouth of my precious oldest babe.

  • E020: You Can Sit With Me-- Kristin Schell
    on July 5, 2022 at 5:00 am by Erin Cuccio

    About Kristin
    Kristin Schell is on a mission to love her neighbors. She put a picnic table in her front yard, painted it turquoise, and began inviting neighbors, friends, and even strangers, to hang out and do life together at The Turquoise Table.

    A new concept of hospitality unfolded in her neighborhood, and before long The Turquoise Table led to a movement of Front Yard People—ordinary people who long to create community right where they live.

    Today, there are Turquoise Tables all across America-- in all fifty states and in thirteen countries. Turquoise Tables have become a symbol of hospitality, a safe place to sit down and connect, welcoming friends and strangers alike.

    As founder of The Turquoise Table and Front Yard People movement, Kristin travels the country speaking at conferences and events with an encouraging word on how to open our lives and homes to others.

    Kristin is the author of the book ​The Turquoise Table: Finding Community and Connection in Your Own Front Yard​ and the host of The Turquoise Table Podcast. Her inspirational story has been featured in popular media outlets, including The Today Show, Good Housekeeping Magazine, Country Living Magazine, Christianity Today, and Focus on the Family.

    Kristin lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, Tony, and their four children.

    While her favorite color may be turquoise, Kristin bleeds burnt orange for The University of Texas and believes the answer to world peace might involve a bowl of queso and salty tortilla chips.
