    EP 68 Implementing a Realistic Morning Routine

    It's the start of a New Year, and many of us have goals and resolutions on our minds, and those are good things. One that has been on my list is to re-evaluate my morning routine

    We know routines and habits are super helpful when we stick with them. Our days run smoother, and we go about them pretty effortlessly in time. They just happen, and our brains don't have to think so hard about them anymore. Brushing our teeth is a good example. You don't think about it—you just do it.

    EP 67 Speech Seasoned with Grace and Kindness

    EP 67 Speech Seasoned with Grace and Kindness

    With the holiday season before us, many of us may find ourselves around people who can be a challenge to communicate without it turning into a heated discussion. We may be the ones challenging to communicate with.

    As I pondered the topic of speech seasoned with grace and truth, one area that came to my mind is when I've messed up, and someone overlooked it and offered me grace. They didn't feel the need to correct me or even bring it up at a later time.

    Have you ever had a person like that in your life? Or are you that person in someone else's life? The reality is, we know when we've messed up.

    When our speech is seasoned with grace and kindness it will overlook mistakes in the lives of others and encourage instead of discouraging.

    EP 66 Giving Thanks in All Things

    EP 66 Giving Thanks in All Things

    My heart doesn't tend to go towards giving thanks during the difficult circumstances in my life. Honestly, my heart doesn't automatically go to giving thanks even in the good times of my life. I’m reminded in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 that giving thanks in all things is God's will for us

    Ingratitude is a sin that fails to acknowledge God as the giver of all things. Gratitude is an attitude that honors God. It acknowledges that He is the giver of all things.

    In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 it states:

    Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

    We're given three exhortations in those verses: Rejoice, pray, and be thankful. Why? Because this is God's will. Joyful, prayerful, and thankful Christians make the gospel attractive to a watching world.

    EP 65 Our Motives Matter: Why We Do What We Do

    EP 65 Our Motives Matter: Why We Do What We Do

    Have you ever been kind to someone outwardly, all the while you were harboring bitterness or anger towards them on the inside? What about thinking the best of others? I fight a critical spirit, and it's an area I continually pray for the Lord to work in my heart to not judge the motives of others.

    God's work of sanctification comes about by continuing to change us more into the image of Christ. Our motives need to be brought into obedience to God's Word if we desire to see real change in our lives.
     
    As we take this time to spend in the Sermon on the Mount and in 1 Corinthians 13 my hope is it will get us pondering and asking the Lord to search our hearts and more specifically our heart motives on why we do what we do and how we judge the motives of others

    EP 64: What is the Best Use of My Time?

    EP 64: What is the Best Use of My Time?

    How do we determine what is the best use of our time? We know amid the mundaneness of our days, the work the Lord has given us in our homes matters for eternity. God has a purpose in all things. There is no secular work in Christ; all is sacred.

    As homemakers, we desire to be productive and accomplish much in the time we’re given. It feels good when we check those tasks off our to-do lists and then the reality hits that most of them are back on it again tomorrow. It’s hard sometimes to determine how to prioritize our days and feel like we are getting things done.

    How do we determine what to do next? I’ve quoted Elisabeth Elliot’s words to you often of “Do the Next Thing,” but what is the next best thing to do? How do we determine we are using our time wisely?

    EP 63 Fruitful Living in the Empty Nest Years

    EP 63 Fruitful Living in the Empty Nest Years

    What does it look like to live a fruitful life in the empty nest years?  What do I do now? What does my day to day life look like? Am I needed anymore? These are questions that raced through my mind as the empty nest season approached and was quickly upon me.

    I don't have all the answers, but I desire to share some thoughts with you on lessons the Lord has taught me and what He continues to teach me in this season that I've grown to cherish much more than I initially thought I would.

    Do you desire to flourish in your empty nest years? What about my younger readers? Please don't pass this one up because it will hopefully give you something to think about and to encourage you as you interact with the older women in your life.

Rich in Scripture

Great podcast! Just finished listening to one of the marriage episode series and I really appreciated all of the scripture context and cross references.

My go too!

This podcast is one of my GO TOO Podcast. You know the one(s) when you’re lost and feeling some type of way in your life that you just need some kind of voice to listen to and even better LEARN from. I found Marci’s podcast a little over a year ago. She was my very first podcast that I listened to daily. I guess you can say she opened my ears up to this wonderful new type of listening and learning. Before this it was just YouTube channels and music; which aren’t bad, but very distracting as your scrolling through.
After listening to her for a solid year I can honestly say that she is a beautiful soul. Her style of teaching and speaking really speak her true nature in every topic she talks about. I always feel comfortable even when she is talking about a convicting topic for me.
When people ask me about my podcast The Thankful Homemaker podcast is one I always talk about and share. When I describe her I tell others she like a close Aunt that I never had. One that is full of wise life teachings and kind words.
I enjoy her podcast and thank you Marci for all your episodes of teaching and love.
Love always Uilani Kumuhone

Godly wisdom

Today is my first day listening and I’ve listened to multiple episodes. Marci is transparent, well read, and so enjoyable to listen to. Already feel that I am learning a lot! It’s a must listen in my opinion!
