December 2020-Just beginning!

I found this today, as I climb out of the Christmas mountain of stuff. I loved the borrowing and lending episode. I chose to continue to the next episode after hearing how this related to the Bible. Every single year I try to grow my relationship with God, declutter, and find podcasts that speak to me. This podcast encompasses all three! I am two episodes in, and I already love you. Thank you for the inspiration as well as lighting my path!

Desperately seeking peace ,

Thank you

I’m writing this as a heartfelt “thank you” to Kathi and Tonya regarding the podcast, “Is it Hoarding or is it Clutter”. This podcast, when you both discussed your parents as being hoarders, has help me tremendously comes to terms that “I am a Hoarder”. It is time for me to take the necessary steps to get control of my situation and not leave this mess to my grown children. I just want to tell you that I look forward to listening to many more podcasts to help me motivate in getting organized and cleaning up my clutter. You ladies are the best and I’m so grateful for you both to have somebody to listen to through my journey!! Thank you again!!

I Wish I Could Listen...

Can I just say...I cannot listen to this podcast anymore. I would love to hear more from Kathi’s guest and the podcast itself has such value, but the host is so Narcissistic she can’t let others speak for more than a few sentences without interjecting and bringing it back to herself. Instead of interviewing she interprets what she assumes they will say and again, brings it back to highlight herself. Her catch phrases are so annoyingly overused and even listening on fast speed the annoyances far override the information. Maybe dealing with a narcissistic sister makes me a little short on patience, but it’s just too much. I love Tonya except when she is doing the Kathi worship thing although that was mainly in the beginning.
It’s not All about You Kathi, be quiet and listen once in a while and that will improve your podcast, otherwise why have guests on at all.
