    226: Getting Intentional at Home: Series Intro

    Today I'm introducing our new series that we will be focusing on for the next several weeks: Getting Intentional at Home.

    225: Helping our Kids Cope with Loneliness + Staying Connected as a Family with Max Lucado

    225: Helping our Kids Cope with Loneliness + Staying Connected as a Family with Max Lucado

    Today I'm honored to have pastor and author, Max Lucado, as my guest. We talk about his newest children's book, Just In Case You Ever Feel Alone and how we can approach the topic of loneliness with our children (and any other big feeling), help them cope, and stay connected as a family in a time where it is common to feel distracted and disconnected. I love this conversation, the encouragement it brings to parents, and the simple, practical tools that Max brings us.

    224: Simplifying Fitness and Wellness in Motherhood with Amy Kiefer

    224: Simplifying Fitness and Wellness in Motherhood with Amy Kiefer

    Today's episode is a topic that I love. Though we don't often talk about it on the podcast, I believe fitness and wellness, and how we take care of ourselves in general, is a big part of intentional living. However, motherhood often does make it a little more difficult to navigate making it a part of our lives. Today I have Amy Kiefer of Expecting and Empowered on the podcast to encourage us with resources and motivation to a healthier life - from nourishing ourselves well, to simplifying fitness, to making it a part of our routine in the midst of overwhelming days as a mom. We also talk about the benefits of strength training and nourishing ourselves well. I hope you can tell through listening in that I absolutely loved this conversation and was very inspired by Amy- I know you will be, too!

    223: Prioritizing Creativity with Ashlee Gadd

    223: Prioritizing Creativity with Ashlee Gadd

    Today I have Ashlee Gadd as my guest as we are talking about a "thing that matters" - creativity, or really, doing whatever it is that makes you feel more like you.
    We encourage our kids to be creative, yet as adults we often fully lose this part of ourselves to a busy life. We count creativity as something that we no longer have time for, that is inessential. Today's conversation challenges that and encourages you to keep creating, right in the margins of a busy life and motherhood.
    Ashlee s a wife, mother of three, believer, and the founder of Coffee + Crumbs. When she's not working or vacuuming Cheerios out of the carpet, she loves making friends on the Internet, eating cereal for dinner, and rearranging bookshelves. Her book, Create Anyway: the Joy of Pursuing Creativity in the Margins of Motherhood, is now available wherever books are sold.

This Podcast has Changed my Life

I love this podcast and what it has taught me and my family. I have learned so much about living with less!!! And it has benefited my life already so much.

Such a great podcast!

I've loved this podcast for a while now. I love that it talks about all different aspects of life through a minimal-ish view. I especially love the most recent podcast with Krista St Germain, as my sister just lost her husband about a week ago, and we are all navigating this new life together. Thank you for what you do!
