    You Have Permission to Call a Rest Audible

    We've come to the end of Season 8, and as my podcast rhythm dictates, it's time for my in-between-seasons break.

    But before I head out, I want to leave you with some mom summer rhythm gold.

    Sometimes, you need permission to call a rest audible.

    Making room for unplanned rest is OK, because there are days AND seasons when you need it.

    And in this episode, I'm speaking directly to the mom leader and entrepreneur that thinks all the balls are gonna drop if they pause and take a break.

    News flash - even if they do drop, er'body is gonna be a'ight.

    So, listen in as I share some very quick insight into calling a rest audible when you need to.

    #180 Decluttering Your Mind with Renae Fieck

    This year I've realized that the way my home looks impacts my mood.

    It wasn't until I understand sensory rest that it began to make sense.

    When my senses are over-stimulated by clutter, it's hard for me to lean into rest.

    Does this sound like you as well?

    Well, if it does, this episode is exactly for you.

    I'm talking with my new friend Renea Fieck, Occupational Therapist, host of the More Than Mom Summit and the creator of The Great Clutter Clear Out Challenge, as she shares the importance of not just clearing out clutter in our home, but how eliminating mindset clutter directly impacts the way we feel in our physical spaces.

    What you will hear:
    Why rest shouldn't feel like one more thing to check off your to-do list.The impact of digital clutter on our mental condition.How clutter in our homes can reflect our state of mind.Renae will answer the question, "Does clutter really impact our moods?"What to do when you feel yourself spiraling into a negative mind space.CONNECT WITH RENEA

    #179 Realigning a Misaligned Business with Marlena Banks

    #179 Realigning a Misaligned Business with Marlena Banks

    Alignment - kinda a buzz word we're hearing these days.

    According to Merriam-Webster, alignment means this: the proper positioning or state of adjustment of parts in relation to each other.

    My question is, what does it feel like when the work that you're doing feels mis-aligned?

    Well, for me it usually includes choosing between what I think is the "right" thing and the "God-inspired" thing.

    Cause honestly, God doesn't always follow marketing rules. He's not always interested in increasing revenue. And he's always, always, always has his kingdom on his mind.

    Can you absolutely trust God to take care of you financially - without stressing about where the money is coming from - as you allow him to guide your work?

    Truth talk, it's easier said than done, but it must be done if you desire to align your work - properly positioning your work in relation with God's heart for it.

    In this episode, I'm chatting with Marlena Banks, founder of Big Idea Food™, a Christian media brand that produces faith-fueling content for entrepreneurs & creatives, about how she realigned her misaligned business, and after 1,000+ book sales later she's rediscovered God's heart for her work in this season.

    What you'll hear:
    Marlena shares what it means to reconcile your purpose with what the market is saying.What to do when your customers say they want something from you, but your heart is screaming no.How marketing fits into your efforts to stay aligned with God's guidance.Why Marlena says she'd rather be broke - and why I'm in total agreement (you'll wanna hear this)!CONNECT WITH MARLENA

    #178 Creating a Refreshing Business with Dana Malstaff

    #178 Creating a Refreshing Business with Dana Malstaff

    So, here's the scoop on Dana and me.

    We're two business-y, mom leader gals who've become good friends.

    But when we get together, it's hard for us to talk straight up business.

    Instead, we end up talking about some of the intangibles of being a mom entrepreneur (and sometimes that means we're riffing on exploding boob growth).

    We can teach marketing.

    We can talk $ scaling (like my jargon-y word there?).

    We can go blue in the face on creating simple evergreen funnels that convert.

    But, we both know it doesn't mean a hill of beans if you're not enjoying your work, not making room for rest, and end up burnt out as a result of it.

    So, in this episode, Dana Malstaff, CEO of Boss-Mom™ is sharing what building a refreshing business actually means to her. And, it may not be what you think.

    What you'll hear:
    How prayer helped Dana through her divorce.How small 1-minute anchors throughout her day helped her transition into her new parenting season as a single mom.The hardest part of her balancing act of business and kids.And we get into a discussion on how we give ourselves permission to show up fully as we are in our work.CONNECT WITH DANA (my affiliate links)

    #177 Enjoying Silent Retreats with DeneenTB

    #177 Enjoying Silent Retreats with DeneenTB

    I remember the day my children went to school for the first time. We'd decided not to homeschool that year, and up to that point my kids had been with me 24/7 for as long as I could remember.

    Eddie had left for work, and I'd just walked in the house after dropping them off.

    I sat on the couch, leaned back, closed my eyes, and I promise you it felt like I could actually hear my thoughts for the first time.

    The house was silent. And God was speaking.

    I began to wonder how many times God was trying to speak to me but the noise of my life and mental load drowned him out.

    There was so much awaiting me in the silence. And the idea of a silent retreat began to peak my interest.

    Can I spend hours communing with God without speaking a word to anyone but him?

    Oh, my heart craved it so!

    And in this episode my friend DeneenTB is sharing how silent retreats have been a part of her life and her business, and how you and I can make them a reality for ourselves even within a season of motherhood - I think you're gonna love it.

    #176 What is a Mini-Sabbatical?

    #176 What is a Mini-Sabbatical?

    When I started creating the Refreshed Moms Spiritual Rest Mini-Sabbatical, one of the first things I had to do was understand what a sabbatical actually was.
    I mean, the word itself sounded absolutely like something I wanted to experience, but from what I knew about it, I felt like it was something totally out of reach for me as a mom with kids in the home.
    But, I've since discovered that it's not out of reach for me or other moms like me.
    Mom leaders need time away from work and home in order to serve in both places well.
    And in this episode, I'm sharing with you how it's possible, even if you may be thinking it's not.
