    TLR 136: Reclaiming Quiet with Sarah Clarkson

    TLR 136: Reclaiming Quiet with Sarah Clarkson

    In a busy, noisy world...it can be hard to hear God.

    Surrounded by distractions, it can be difficult to find the stillness needed to renew and restore our soul.



    In this episode of The Living Room with Joanna Weaver, Sarah Clarkson talk about her book, Reclaiming Quiet: Cultivating a Life of Holy Attention (coming November 2024). She gives practical tips for reclaiming quiet. But most of all, she shares the tender love God has for us. Wooing and calling us away from noise to a deeper friendship with Him.

    TLR 135: The Gift of Sacred Rest with Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith

    TLR 135: The Gift of Sacred Rest with Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith

    If you were to take the pulse of your life, what would you find?

    Does it feel like you're in "a-fib" - ping-ponging off one responsibility to another? Or have you flat-lined and feel a little dead?



    Dr. Saundra Dalton Smith has been where you’ve been and in this episode of The Living Room Podcast, she’s shares lessons from her book, Sacred Rest: Recover Your Life, Renew Your Energy, Restore Your Sanity. You were not made to go full tilt and burn out for Jesus. He created you for an abundant life. And that includes cultivating a rest that renews and restores your soul.



    Check out Dr. Saundra's "Rest Quiz." It will help you gauge where you fall in seven specific areas. (And be sure to tune in to next week's YouTube video where I'll unpack how I'm going to apply the "7 Types of Rest" this summer!)

    TLR 134: Calm My Anxious Heart with Linda Dillow

    Life offers lots of reasons to be anxious...

    But God invites us to calm our hearts and still our soul by learning to rest in Him. No matter what we face.



    In this episode of The Living Room with Joanna Weaver, best-selling author Linda Dillow shares how God has taught her to trust Him more - and the beautiful ministry He's opened to her in war-torn countries like Ukraine.



    This interview had me in tears - it's just that good. Hope you'll share it with a friend.

    TLR 133: She’s Not Your Enemy with Jenn Schultz

    TLR 133: She’s Not Your Enemy with Jenn Schultz

    Let's be honest...building friendships with other women can be difficult!

    Even as Christians, fear of rejection, insecurity and the snare of compare often make us hold each other at a distance.



    In this episode, Jenn Schultz and I talk about her new study, She's Not Your Enemy: Conquering Our Insecurities So We Can Build God's Kingdom Together. Satan loves to divide and conquer, but God wants us to push back the obstacles and step into the sweet sisterhood He wants for His daughters.

    TLR 132: Taking Leaps of Faith for God with Rachel G. Scott

    Is God calling you to take a leap of faith?

    It's risky stepping out when God calls...but its even riskier not to obey.

    In this episode of The Living Room, Rachel G. Scott shares from her book, Taking the 5 Leaps of Faith: Experiencing God's Faithfulness as You Respond to His Call. She shares from her own journey and shows us how to prepare, plan and execute the leap God is asking us to take.



    "Taking leaps always includes risks and tons of unknowns," Rachel says, "but I want you to remember that the risk is worth Heaven’s reward."
