Welcome to SiNes of Life

Traditioooooon, tradition! Do you like traditions? How often should traditions happen? Is going to the same restaurant every week a tradition, or uninspired repetition? Listen in and then tell us your opinions!

Jenn and Elisa debate the meaning and merit of the James Joyce quote: “In the particular is contained the universal.” (Trust us, it’s more fun than it sounds.)

On this episode we tell our stories of (low-level) crisis, Elisa mispronounces “coiffed,” and {brace yourself} we have a dink instead of a wink during our Winks & Dinks segment.

We’re sure you’ve heard of The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman, but have you ever wondered if your love language is connected to your personality type? Well, Jenn and Elisa have wondered, and on this episode they try to get to the bottom of this pressing question. 

We are back! New logo + new branding + the same voices and perspectives you know and love. 🙂 In honor of how guilty we feel for abandoning our podcast last year, we are exploring the languages of apology. Specifically, we’ll be looking at Gary Chapman’s book, When Sorry Isn’t Enough. Take a listen, and then tell us what your language of apology is!

Episode 29! Have you been dying to know what emojis we love to use??! Well, today’s your lucky day, because we totally discuss that on this episode. And if you hate emojis, maybe you can hop on the “Explainicon” bandwagon with our producer Erin (who is smiling happily simply at the thought of this). Then we talk about taking the MBTI test when we were younger (and Jenn contradicts herself yet again {insert crying/laughing emoji here}). THEN we give a review for an R-rated movie, so send the kiddos away. Happy listening, friends, and have a great summer!

Welcome to this Bit of Life! On this mini-episode, we talk about crying. Sound like a bummer? Never! Tune in, then let us know how you feel about crying.

Welcome to this Bit of Life! Do you feel lonely easily? Does social media affect your loneliness? Tune in to this mini-episode to hear Jenn and Elisa discuss!

Here’s episode 28! Today we welcome second-time special guest Emily Helquist. We give a quick review of what the Myers Briggs letters mean, then spend some nerdy but fun time discussing whether there should be a fifth category. Emily also lays some brilliant insight on us regarding Thinking/Feeling, AND we all share our drinks and winks.

Welcome to this Bit of Life! On this mini-episode, we talk about stress and the ways in which different personality types respond to stress, and we also look at whether or not that’s connected to the way we respond to joy.

Hi, I'm Elisa. I am a wife and mother and former foster mama and writer and sometime-speaker and friend and daughter and small business co-owner and lover of stories and baker of cookies.

I’m Jenn. I’m married to an awesome guy, and we have four really cute kids. I’ve been called an anglophile. I love books, movies, the piano, and popcorn. And wine. And coffee.


Our intrepid producer Erin, who keeps us organized, inspired, and smiling. She also takes our pictures. We'd basically be lost without her.
