    139: Decide Once (with Kendra Adachi)

    I have invited one of my best friends in the world, author Kendra Adachi, to sit down and talk with us about simplifying our choices by deciding once (when we can) and remembering that we are the boss of our decisions and not the other way around. Listen in.

    138: Leave It Behind

    138: Leave It Behind

    When it comes to the decisions we have to make, the choices we carry and the many potential roads we could walk down, its important to remember that we don’t face these decisions neutrally or at zero every time. Like a good novelist begins her story with the story already happening, that’s how we arrive at every decision we make. And that means we're carrying some things we may need to leave behind. Listen in.

    137: Remember What You Know

    From the scientists to the school board, no one really knows for sure what the next best step is in the midst of this continuing coronavirus epidemic — and those who thought they knew for sure before keep changing their minds.
     
    We have to make decisions without all the facts, with a rapidly changing landscape of advice, and with fewer certainties we’ve come to rely upon. Now more than ever it’s essential to remember what we already know and practice doing just the next right thing. Listen in.

    136: Decision-Making for Slow Processors

    136: Decision-Making for Slow Processors

    Today’s episode is inspired by a few comments I received after I shared on Instagram that I am a slow processor. Several of you raised your hand and said you are slow processors too and it’s good to hear from someone like me who continues to put content out weekly and seems to be a functioning human adult person but that I too am someone who thinks slow.
     
    Is there room for slow processing in this fast moving world? How can we make thoughtful decisions when everything moves so fast? Listen in.

    For the last few years, I've created some intentional space to slow down a bit on purpose around the same time every year. In today’s episode I wanted to share with you what that looks like practically and a few ideas that could help you do the same. Listen in.

    134: How to Pray When You're Sad

    How can we continue to move forward when so many things seem like they’re standing still? When we're still carrying grief? When our hearts are broken? Sometimes our next right thing isn't to solve a problem, it's to carry it longer. It's called lament and I'm learning it is my next right thing. Maybe it's yours too?

Episode 137: Remember what you know

Listeners and potential listeners,

I absorbed this episode four times because it was that good. Emily articulates precisely how our family felt “piecing together what the options were” for the upcoming school year. Hearing that we are not alone is such a comfort. The second half of the episode, when Emily outlines practical advice and then flows into remembering what we know - it is truly inspired. I believe she allows the Holy Spirit to flow through her, gifting her listeners with what our Almighty Father needs His flock to hear. Thanks Emily for creating space to let this flow through you. Beyond grateful. 💙
