Podcast Episode 173: How to Create The Life You Want – A Conversation with Mom and Farmer PJ Jonas

Welcome! To listen to today’s episode, scroll all the way down to the bottom of this post and hit the triangular “play” button. Enjoy the show!

Today’s guest, PJ Jonas, got a few goats several years ago, because she just loved goats. Always keeping that love in the forefront, PJ and her family – her husband and their eight children – went from those few goats early on to, today, owning and operating a family farm which creates soaps, lotions, and edibles, all from goats milk.

When you learn that the Jonas family homeschools in addition to operating the farm and their website, goatmilkstuff.com, you begin to realize the genius that PJ has for organizing and running this well-oiled machine.

You also can hear in PJ’s voice just how much she enjoys her days, filled as they are with family, and fun, and love.
In our conversation she shares all kinds of tips – both mindset and practical – for creating the life you want.

Also! During this episode PJ shares a link, that she made especially for our show, where you can get a free bar of her amazing soap! (Which I did. PJ shares a full-sized bar of soap in whatever flavor you want – mine is lavender – and it lasts a really long time : )

Our conversation roams all over the place, as many of my favorite conversations do.

Here are a few of my favorite PJ quotes from today’s conversation:

“A lot of people are dissatisfied with their lives… Don’t be afraid to try something new.”

“What you model for your children is so valuable… Whether it’s good, or bad.” (In other words, children emulate us whether we are behaving well or badly – we show them how to live even when we are unaware of what we’re teaching them.)

“Learning should be fun.” Spoken like a true homeschooler!

Key Links
The Jonas family uses Google calendar, and Google drive spreadsheets, to plan and organize everything from shopping for food to holiday planning. This way everybody knows what’s happening, and they use the information entered to look back as they plan ahead.
