Raise Her Up: Dr. Jody Carrington

1-minute read

Meet Dr. Jody Carrington. Speaker. Author. Game Changer. 

Dr. Jody Carrington is a psychologist, speaker and author of the best-selling Canadian book “Kids These Days: A Game Plan for (Re) Connecting With Those We Teach, Lead, and Love”. She is a wife and mom to three kids. She talks about relationships, trauma, hope and connection. 

Over the past year, the voice of Dr. Carrington brought calm to a year in disarray. She called on us to be brave and join the #ReconnectionRevolution

From the small community of Olds, Alberta, Canada, Dr. Carrington tasked us to connect with little nudges like text five people you’re thinking about. Send love via video and door drops. Make it your purpose this week to be kind to everyone you see. 

Dr. Carrington’s definition of BRAVE is doing something, with your whole heart when you can’t predict the outcome. Just the word we need for 2021. 

We ask Dr. Carrington for tips on thriving in 2021.

What inspired you to go into counselling?  

The question for me is who inspired me?  It would be all of the experiences that people allowed me to be seen.  I wanted to do that for others.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
