For Shon’t Savage, divorce was a bad thing that turned out to be a good thing. Ten years ago, while sharing custody of her then two year old son, she found herself with free time. Shon’t grieved the days she lost with her son, but filled the space with a newfound love for hiking, camping, backpacking, and cross-country skiing. In doing so, Shon’t found herself once more — which ultimately made her a better mother. It also made her the perfect fit to sit on the board of Adventure Mamas.

In this episode, we learn about Shon’t’s philosophy for raising an adventurous son, how we might take advantage of ‘found time’ in our lives, and the benefits of staying curious above all else. We’re left with a message of hope – that “bad things” can turn into “good things” – if we just grant them time.
