Today we are chatting with author Annie Downs. I’ve known Annie for a loooong time. She even reminded me during this interview that we worked together on a music blog. I can’t believe I forgot that! (Listen to the podcast to find out what Grammy winning artist she interviewed for our blog.)
I wanted to interview Annie today because she wrote a book that my daughters and I have really been enjoying. It’s called Speak Love. Today we are going to talk about how we can speak love to our children and how we can teach them to make their words matter.
The ever cool Annie will also give you some great music suggestions, because we loooove to talk music.
This is a can’t miss episode. Annie is full of wisdom and has some incredible insights that had me taking pages of notes during our chat.

Here is the Andy Andrew’s quote I completely messed up during the interview…
Here is the quote I botch in today’s interview –
““The good news,” he continues, “is that even during the worst time in your life, you can be assured that all is not lost. Remember this:
You are still breathing. If you are still breathing, that means you are still here. If you are still here, then you are here for a reason. If you are here for a reason…that means your purpose on earth has not been fulfilled. If your purpose on earth has not been fulfilled, the most important
part of your life—the best part of your life—is still ahead of you!”
- Andy Andrews
