    When You Struggle to "Hear Him"

    When You Struggle to "Hear Him"

    President Nelson has said, “Our Father knows that when we are surrounded by uncertainty and fear, what will help us the very most is to hear His Son.”
    We are most definitely surrounded by uncertainty and fear these days so hearing Him becomes even more vital. However, Hearing Him can be difficult even if you are actively trying to increase that ability. Usually by doing more.
    As a mental health therapist, I have noticed three different reasons why women struggle to hear Him in their lives. None of them mean we need to do more.
    So listen in to Episode 69 of the Meaningful Minutes Podcast for those reasons and how to combat them.

    Who is Niki Olsen: An Interview by Laura Cragun

    Who is Niki Olsen: An Interview by Laura Cragun

    I was invited to join Laura Cragun on her podcast, Latter Day Intuitive Eating. She believes women hold incredible power in their thoughts and knowing who they are on the inside will reflect who they are on the outside and the light they can shine.
    Today I am sharing that episode with you. Laura asked me to share a little about myself and why I do what I do. We also discussed the natural man, feeling broken, and how connecting to the Godhead will help us overcome it all.

    Uncover the Instrument You Need to Help the People You Love

    Uncover the Instrument You Need to Help the People You Love

    Women want to help their loved ones. So much so that they often feel overwhelmed, anxious, inadequate, drained, and fearful as they try to do that. They try to take it all on and fix everything for those they love. 
    There is certainly nothing wrong with wanting to do that but we as humans cannot do it alone. It is not possible for us to fix everything for others but there is one thing that has helped me, especially as a therapist, to help others.
    Today I am sharing that instrument with you and how you too can apply it as you strive to love and serve those around you.

    Accessing Mental and Physical Strength Beyond Your Own

    Accessing Mental and Physical Strength Beyond Your Own

    Mathew 11:29-30 reads, “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light”
    Jesus is offering us a yoke to help make our burdens easier and lighter.
    You are carrying many loads in your life that are causing you to feel an extra burden mentally and physically. 
    Jesus is offering you a yoke to help carry those burdens and the yoke He is offering you is designed to carry your burdens specifically. It is intended to help you get work done that you couldn’t possibly do on your own.
    In this episode of the Meaningful Minutes Podcast I am sharing specific steps to help you yoke yourself to the Savior and keep pace with Him so as to accomplish all that you possibly can.

    Decision Making Through The Spirit

    Decision Making Through The Spirit

    Making decisions in your life can often feel anxiety-provoking, confusing, or overwhelming. Even small ones can sometimes make you feel that way.
    Making decisions is interesting because we aren’t always faced with a clear good option and bad option. Sometimes we are faced with all good options or all bad options then we can really be confused right?
    This can cause you to feel fearful about making the wrong decision. I see this often with the women I work with.
    Which makes sense, you don’t want to be out there purposefully making the wrong decision.
    But there is a principle at play here that makes certainty not an option. 
    That principle is faith.

Shift in thought

This podcast and the 5 Day Challenge really helped me realize my doer status isn’t helping me progress. I need to receive His messages to progress! These 10 min podcasts help get that focus!

Up your Revelation

So grateful I found @nikiolsencoaching. What little I have heard is already making a difference in my life. Each segment is 10 minutes, who doesn’t have 10 minutes to show yourself some love. 💜

Short inspiration to start your day

I am uplifted listening to these short nuggets which encourage me to a better relationship with my Heavenly Father.
