    155: Collect the Quiet

    This year has led us to places we would rather not go. But here we are anyway, waiting for relief, praying for healing, and holding on to hope the best we can. To help usher us into the Advent season and companion us to the finish line of 2020, I've created a brand new version of The Quiet Collection for Christmas and it's available now. In today's episode, I'll share the story behind it and I hope you'll listen in.

    154: Remember Who You Are

    154: Remember Who You Are

    Today I want to talk about Jesus. I can’t talk about the importance of remembering who you are without talk about who I am. And to talk about who I am, I have to talk about Jesus.
     
    It’s funny when you do the kind of work I do,  some people think you don’t talk about Jesus enough and others think you do it too much. I’m not trying to strike any kind of balance here y’all, I’m just trying to be a person.
     
    I mention our friend Jesus every now and then. You may be used to that by now. I want you to know you’re welcome in this space no matter what you believe about Jesus and I hope you’ll stick around for the conversation. Listen in.

    152: Say Words With Your Out Loud Voice

    Most of us long for clarity -- in our decisions, our relationships, and our vocation. As Brene Brown has taught us, "Clear is kind. Unclear is unkind." Sometimes the simplest way to offer clarity is one we often overlook: saying words with our out loud voice. Listen in.

    151: 3 Steps to Restart Your Life-Giving Rhythms

    No matter what happens in our elections, our churches, our families, and relationships we still have work to do, people to care for, places to go, dinner to make, homes to clean, proposals to write, losses to grieve, appointments to schedule, small wins to celebrate, emails to write and decisions to make. We still have life to live and if there’s one thing I know about you, it’s that you truly want to live your one life well.

    Let's return to 3 simple steps to help you restart your life-giving rhythms. Listen in.

    150: A Guide for Personal Reflection

    150: A Guide for Personal Reflection

    One common mistake we make when we have the desire to make good decisions is that we try to peer into the future to discover what it might hold, what the outcomes we want to achieve are, and what roadblocks we wish to avoid.
     
    The only problem is the future hasn’t happened yet, so how can it possibly teach us? Instead of looking ahead and guessing about outcomes, there’s something to be said for looking back and gathering information. Today I'll share about my weekly practice of reflection and a brand new resource I created to help! Listen in.

A kind, gentle voice that encourages and guides us forward.

Each week Emily delivers a kind and thoughtful guidance for her listeners. How to make choices that build the life we were created for. I am thankful for her words each week.

Soothing and inspiring

You feel calm but also inspired to action when you listen to Emily. Also, her advice is safe. Meaning- I have purged my podcast feed and stopped listening to voices who espouse views that are dangerous to me, as a person. But to Emily... I’ll continue to subscribe.

Good for women

The topics are good. I’m a guy though, and this is a very feminine show. It sounds like she reads something poetic she wrote down in her journal as the podcast content. It’s a bit hard to listen to as a guy. Women will get more out of this.

It’s a little overproduced for my taste - with theme music and sometimes music playing the whole time she talks.
