Join your host Becky Morquecho as she shares stories of surrender and encouraging, real life proof of how God sets us free when we let go. If you’re craving freedom from trying to have it together, disappointments, fears or anxiety, painful life circumstances you never thought would happen to you, or just the everyday challenges that come with being married (or single), motherhood (or waiting for motherhood), work (or trying to figure out your purpose), or anything else that’s heavy on your heart or holding you down, this is the show for you.
069: Allie Casazza - Decluttering Your Heart and Home
Allie Casazza, the life minimalist and author of Declutter Like a Mother, joins me today and we chat about getting rid of the excess stuff in our lives, homes and hearts so we can make room for what matters most. Allie and I discuss contentment vs. consumerism; what minimalism looks like as a mom; what decluttering has to do with faith; practical ways to live a simple life; and why capsule wardrobes aren’t for everyone! Do you consider yourself a minimalist? Maybe you’ll want to after this episode!
068: Michelle Nietert - Raising Mentally Healthy Kids (and Mamas!)
We know mental health is vital but how do we implement those practices and teach our kids to do the same? I chatted with Michelle Nietert about the warning signs we’re not okay and what to do when our brains, bodies and hearts (and our kids’) are in need of some TLC and healing.
067: Mary Marantz - Discovering What Makes the Broken Beautiful
The hard parts of our stories are more than just that; if we look close enough, we’ll see there’s so much beauty, strength and goodness to be discovered within ourselves. Mary Marantz, author of Dirt, joins me to chat about facing our pasts and allowing them to positively shape our futures.
066: Jeanette Tapley - Honest, Vulnerable and Intentional Friendships
Friendships are important but they’re not always easy. Jeanette and I chat about honesty, intentionality, vulnerability and expectations in friendships. Isolating ourselves and thinking we can do it on our own is for the birds. We need our friends! Listen in, laugh with us and be encouraged to be a good friend and let your friends love you back, too.
065: Courtney Kibby Cooper - Tapping into Your Creativity
We have a creative God. And artist Courtney Kibby Cooper believes the beauty and creativity He’s given us (in the world and within ourselves) can help us heal and grow our appreciation for the beauty and good gifts in our lives.
064: Julie Zihong - A Conversation with an Adult Chinese Adoptee
Adoption is an incredible gift but it’s also born out of loss. Julie Zihong, an adult Chinese adoptee, shares about the common questions and emotions that come with adoption. She speaks honestly about dealing with feelings of abandonment, finding your identity in Jesus and offers encouragement for adoptive families.
I love how Becky and her guests encourage us to remember that God sets us free from the things we struggle with as women. Highly recommend it, Kim Stewart @kimstewinspired
