    Rest, Reset and Sabbath as a Busy Mom with Deanna Mason

    Rest, Reset and Sabbath as a Busy Mom with Deanna Mason

    I recorded this interview with Deanna Mason, rest consultant and the creator of Refreshed Moms, in the middle of the most chaotic months of my life. Everything in me craved a full, deep Sabbath rest. But in my situation, that seemed impossible. What I learned from Deanna in this conversation is that I needed to reframe what I thought Sabbath and true rest was supposed to look like.
    This episode may not be for everyone, and that’s ok.
    But if you’re overwhelmed, exhausted, and craving some semblance of REST, this will be balm to your soul. You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of what Sabbath actually means (going back to the Biblical roots), and how to catch meaningful moments of it in your life, not matter what season you’re in.

So Informative AND Inspiring!

I found Megan’s podcast during a difficult period….one where I was struggling so much with my body image, my weight, my energy…and my relationship with Christ was suffering. Her podcasts have truly been a God-send! She speaks truth in a loving, encouraging, gentle, and wise way. I have learned so much that I have been able to apply to my life. Her messages are truly transformative!
