In today’s busy world, it's often impossible to have candid meaningful conversations about the happenings inside our hearts and homes. Some conversations we bury within us, hoping never to have to share. Some conversations we long to discuss, if only we had someone to listen. And some we simply never broach the subject of because we have yet to dig that deep inside ourselves.

It is my hope those conversations will originate here. Together, let's discover who we are through intentional home tips, to hopefully make life easier. Let’s chat on relationships, marriage, parenting, and more. Our greatest, most vulnerable moments tend to happen inside the four walls we call home. So, let’s be vulnerable here. In this space, I hope you will learn more about yourself and leave with an idea of how to create a heart and home of intention.

    Ep 68. Stop Doubting

    The meaning of self-doubt is a lack of faith in oneself, it means that you don’t feel certain about your own abilities or actions. It’s a big problem, and everyone feels the same way, yet sometimes it just creeps in and before you know it you begin to question yourself.  
     
    As I close out this season, I've been thinking about the last few things I've wanted to leave with you guys in these next few episodes. In today’s episode, I want to share with you what I have learned about self doubt and how you can handle it.

    Ep 66: Heavenly Realm

    Ep 66: Heavenly Realm

    As we get into the holiday season, we might find this one of the best times of the year or one of the most stressful times. The holiday season can be heard for many of us, especially when we think about the people we have or the people we love who cannot join us in person.  
     
    In today’s episode, I share some lessons I have learned from a book called Imagine Heaven by John Burke. This book speaks on ways you can understand the afterlife and near-death experiences. I read a specific chapter and talk about shame-based identity, how we are still the person God created us to be and why as females we shouldn’t carry shame and guilt. 
     
    In this episode, we cover:
    An excerpt from Chapter 5: You’ll Be Yourself Finally [4:04] You are still the person God created you to be [9:28] As females we should not carry shame and guilt [10:09] Another story from the book: We all want to make a name for ourselves but why? [12:48] The Lord immediately knows who you are [15:44] This episode is sponsored by She Made Herself a Home, my book that will help you discover how to create a home that is inviting, beautiful, functional and uniquely personal all while staying on budget.

    Ep 65: Self Esteem

    Ep 65: Self Esteem

    It might seem like an issue in your teens, but struggling with self esteem is something that many adults struggle with. I’ve seen my friends and family struggle with self esteem, and as mothers, we often feel a little lost and this in turn impacts our self esteem.  
     
    In today’s episode, I share ways to increase your self esteem based on an article by Psychology Today. These easy steps include having a positive attitude which in turn increases your trust and belief in yourself, breaking the stigma by talking to your friends and most importantly making time for fun (something I’ve discussed in previous podcasts).  Self improvement and self confidence isn’t something you change overnight but you can work on it bit by bit!
     
    In this episode, we cover:
    Struggling with self esteem? Here are 10 things you can do about it [1:41] #1 Have a Positive Attitude [3:18] #2 Talk to Your Friends [4:03] #3 Get Up and Move [4:46] #4 and #5 Do a Purpose Driven Activity and Create Plans [6:34] #6 Listen to Your Body [7:22] #7 and #8 Nourish Your Body with the Right Foods and Make Quality Time for Yourself [8:15] #9 and #10 Write Out Your Goals and Have Fun! [8:57] Our self worth goes back to how we were raised and what relationship we had with our parents [9:41] Article referenced: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-upside-things/202009/10-ways-boost-your-self-esteem
