    That is exactly what episode 72 is with Michelle Garrels. It is a beautiful conversation where Michelle welcomes listeners deep into the process of her and her husbands development of their family life, their homeschooling vision, and the parenting of children as they become young adults.

    How Does Work Make You Feel with Emelie Pepito

    How Does Work Make You Feel with Emelie Pepito

    How do you feel when you're doing the dishes, weeding in the garden, working for a paycheck, folding laundry, paying the bills, making dinner for a close friend you're excited to see, or packing for your dream trip?
    Do you know what these things have in common? They are work. But we have very different feelings associated with each one. Dishes, laundry, weeding are alternately exhausting, relaxing, or frustrating. Making dinner for our close friend or a loved one, packing for a dream holiday, it's exhilirating, fun, and a joy. 
    In episode 69, Jennifer and Emelie dive down into the mindsets, lies, fears, and feelings we get when it comes to work, how we can change our mindset around the most mundane tasks, and begin to enjoy work as a better part of being alive.

    Faith, Friends, and Finishing Well with Sally Clarkson

    Faith, Friends, and Finishing Well with Sally Clarkson

    Sally Clarkson is a dear friend and long awaited guest of the podcast. Her long years of mothering, and her pursuit of sacred living for mind, body and spirit, has made her an enduring motherhood figure.
    In episode 67, she joins Jennifer to talk about planting a flag in the ground of your heart that says: from this point forward, I will no longer listen to lies, I will no longer live according to my fears, but according to the goodness of God, and His truth. 
    There is more than just symbolism to this gesture though. There is planning, and dreaming and executing the vision of what that might look like for your unique life. Jennifer and Sally talk about how to go about planting that flag, and creating a vision and course of action to support a life that is lived bravely, gently, and in truth.

     In this episode–
    Identifying that not every thought is truth
    Creating a vision for your life and your home
    Realising that the world is not your responsibilty, and while we're called to steward our children, our lives, our marriages, the outcome is God's responsibility
    The journey of motherhood requires community in the trenches 
    When it comes to our older children, there comes a time when we choose to release our expectations and learn to love and accept them "beginning, middle, and end."
    Two of our favourite books by Sally are Different and Awakening Wonder
