Episode 52: Better Connection With Your Teens

This week Bree is talking with Brooke Romney all about connecting with your teens. Brooke Romney is a writer, speaker, educator and connector. She has been published in The Washington Post, The Deseret News, and a host of other online publications where her pieces have been read millions of times. In October 2020, she published her first book, I Like Me Anyway: Embracing Imperfection, Connection, and Christ which has changed the lives and perspective of thousands of women and men all over the world.

Her next book, 52 Modern Manners for Today’s Teens will be out this fall and helps parents and teenagers adopt fresh perspectives and doable strategies for living a more successful and connected life.

Brooke comes from girly roots but has morphed into an outdoor exploring, dirt loving mom of 4 boys (ages 9-18) and couldn't be happier about it. She is married to a man who keeps her on her toes but loves unconditionally, even when she leaves all the cupboards open and lights on.

When she is not writing or mothering, you can find her in a good book, volunteering in the schools, or on a walk with a friend. She has a weakness for gummy candy, sunshine, youth sports, and family travel but also finds magic in the ordinary moments that have become rather sacred in our fast paced world. Meaningful connection with family, friends, strangers, and God is where she finds purpose and joy.
