Giving Thanks with the Durkin Kids

Happy Thanksgiving week! Today I am joined by my three kids Luke, Brady, and McKenna, as we talk about finding gratitude amid the pandemic. You will hear my love-bug daughter McKenna share her passion for soccer, and my big-dreamer Brady shares how he put on 20lbs of muscle and wrote a book. My oldest-son Luke shares how he took this pandemic as an opportunity to step-up the recruiting game to play college football, which ultimately led to him committing to his “dream school” in the midst of some of the darkest days of the pandemic.

This time has NOT been an easy one for kids. And we talk about that also and what mindset is necessary for kids to get through this tough time. So grab your kids, family, and friends and gather around the campfire, the treadmill, or the turkey and listen to today’s episode on giving thanks. I think you’re going to like it, and I hope that it brings a smile to your face and tons of gratitude to your heart.

Happy Thanksgiving, and THANK YOU! Thank you for all your support and love of the podcast. I appreciate you every week. But this week of Thanksgiving in the U.S., I’m even more particularly grateful. Create a great week!
