    In July and August on Woven, we are talking all things "play". For our July episode, we discuss our own barriers to play and the areas where we'd like to become more playful. We also challenge each other to do something playful over the next month.
    To enhance our discussion, we also talk to Courtney Ellis, the author of Happy Now: Let Playfulness Lift Your Load and Renew Your Spirit. We talk with her about why it's so hard for adults, even Christian adults to play. We also discuss that Jesus cares about our play, and how playfulness can even be a spiritual discipline. She also shares with us some practical ways to boost play and joy in our everyday lives. Come back in August to hear the 2nd half of the interview!

    Woven is taking a short break in June, but we still want to share a little something with our listeners. Since we're talking about fun and playfulness in our July and August episodes, we asked Christie Cuthbert, author and friend of Woven, to read an excerpt from her book Mom I Farted in Church for our June episode. Christie is an expert in finding the humor and fun in parenting. We hope you enjoy this reading, and check out Christie and all her work.

    It's finally May! With a new season and the end of a school year approaching, lots of transitions are on the horizon. This month we talk life transitions- how we handle them differently, how we can prepare for them better and how we can keep growing even in times of transition. We also talk summer and share some ideas on surviving and maybe even thriving in this new season.

    BONUS EPISODE: Mother's Day

    Bonus Episode! Our May episode comes out on Tuesday, but in honor of Mother's Day, we thought we'd drop a bonus discussion on mothering- different types of mothering, our strengths and weaknesses as mothers, the Proverbs 31 woman (spoiler alert: it's not what you think), and how Mother's Day isn't always the easiest day for a lot of people. Enjoy!

    Slow Growing

    Slow Growing

    For our April episode, we process what it means to grow slowly in different aspects of our lives. We talk about the areas where we struggle to grow low and slow versus fast and flashy. We also interview Jennifer Dukes Lee about her new book Growing Slow: Lessons on Un-Hurrying Your Heart from an Accidental Farm Girl. In our third segment, we talk about gardening, slow cooking, and books that are helping us to lean into the spring "growing" season and Eastertide.
    About Jennifer:
    Jennifer Dukes Lee lives on the fifth-generation Lee family farm in Iowa, where she and her husband are raising crops, pigs, and two beautiful humans. She writes books, loves queso, and enjoys singing too loudly to songs with great harmony. Once upon a time, she didn't believe in Jesus; now he's her CEO. Find Jennifer at JenniferDukesLee.com and on Instagram at @JenniferDukesLee.

The Banter is the Best Part!

I love listening to the Rebeccas chat and banter. They address great topics, but it doesn't even matter what they talk about. I love getting their take on just about everything!
