Today, we’re talking about how to make room for quiet time—which is something we all want but rarely get. Also, we'll get to hear from author Brittany Ann about falling in love with God’s word. We'll wrap up today's show by journaling about making quiet time a priority.

 

3 Ways to Make Time for Quiet Time

For years, I struggled to read scripture, even though I know how powerful it is! But thankfully, I discovered a system that helped me overcome the obstacles that were keeping me from time with God. In this video, I unpack my system in three simple steps.

 

How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible with Brittany Ann

The REAL problem most of us have with our quiet time is that we’re not passionate about spending time with God. In today’s interview, I talk to author and Bible teacher Brittany Ann about her new book, Fall in Love with God’s Word. She’ll share practical strategies about bridging the gap between wanting to read more and actually doing it.

 

You Need THIS to Read Your Bible

“All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:16–17 (NIV)

 

All of the things we could ever want or need in life are found in God’s word. So, why does it feel like a chore to open up our Bibles? I encourage you to dig deep on this topic by responding to these journal questions:  

  1. How do you feel about reading your Bible?
  2. What would help you have alone time?
  3. What is one thing you could do this week to give yourself what you need to have that alone time?

Today, we are talking about five ways you can stop stressing about what your house looks like. And I’ve got the perfect guest for this topic, my good friend Emily Ley. She’s an author and speaker who helps people simplify their lives. Finally, we’ll end the show with a few journal questions about how to be content—no matter the state of your home.

 

5 Ways to Stop Obsessing About the Mess in Your House

Sometimes the state of our house can have an impact on the state of our mind. I’ve been there. That’s why I want to share five simple things you can put into practice so you can stop feeling like a mess—even when your house is messy!

 

How to Make Life Simpler with Emily Ley

My friend Emily Ley is a speaker, author and simplicity expert. One of the things I love about her teaching is that she gives small, practical tips we can use every day to organize and manage our lives better.

 

The Secret to Loving Your House

“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.”

Philippians 4:11–12 (NIV)

 

Even with a spotless, Pinterest-perfect house, we can still be unhappy with what we have. That’s why this verse from Philippians is so powerful: It reminds us that with the power of the Holy Spirit, we can be content in any circumstance!

Let’s bring this concept home by answering these journal questions:

  1. What do you love about your home?
  2. How does it change the way you view your home when you set your mind on what you’re grateful for?
  3. How can you practice being content in your home, your life, and your situations right now?

Today, we’re talking about life balance. Is it even possible? And what exactly do we mean by “balance” in the first place? Also, I get to interview my good friend, career expert and bestselling author Ken Coleman about how to create balance at work. And finally, we’ll close with a few journal questions so you can reflect on what helps you feel balanced.

 

Feeling Out of Balance? Here’s Why.

Everyone wants to know how to get more done with less time. I sure do! As a wife, mother of three kids under 6, speaker and author, I never feel like I have enough time. But as I’ve researched life balance over the years, I’ve discovered that we’re getting it all wrong. I’ll explain what I mean in this video.

 

Are You Unhappy at Work? With Ken Coleman

If you’re struggling to find purpose in your career, my good friend Ken Coleman has some words of advice and encouragement for you. He’s a bestselling author, speaker and career expert who can help you discover and pursue the unique role you were created to do.

 

What Makes You Feel Balanced?

“So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work . . .”

Ecclesiastes 3:22 (NIV)

 

Your life is too important to waste it doing something you hate—especially if you’re doing it 40+ hours a week. Our work has a huge impact on our sense of life balance. To help you figure out how you can create more balance in your career, take a few moments to write out your answers to these questions:

  1. What makes you feel out of balance?
  2. What makes you feel balanced?
  3. How are you going to incorporate those things into your life?

I’m so excited for today’s show! We’re talking about how to identify and appreciate the things you’re good at. I’ll also share part two of my interview with author and speaker John Bevere. And we’ll end the show with a few journal questions to reflect on how you can use your gifts to make a lasting impact on the people around you.

 

Why Focusing on Your Strengths Leads to Success

Have you ever wondered what you’re good at? I sure have. Back in eighth grade, I was cut from every sports team I tried out for. I couldn’t even join student council or chorus that year! If you’re struggling to find what you’re good at, I want to share five questions that will help you identify and understand your unique gifts and abilities.

 

Are You Ready to Maximize Your God-Given Potential? with John Bevere

We all want to make an impact on the world. And for those of us who are Christ followers, we want to make sure we’re building up the kingdom of God. In our interview, bestselling author and speaker John Bevere offers some practical guidance on how to maximize our potential for good.

 

Are You Using Your Gifts to the Best of Your Ability?

“To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability.” 

Matthew 25:15 (ESV)

 

Want to know something incredible? God chose to give you certain gifts and abilities. But with those gifts comes a responsibility. God expects us to use our talents to make a difference in the world! 

This is a big deal. Take some time to answer these journal questions based on today’s teaching:

  1. What are your gifts?
  2. Where, how and when are you using your gifts?
  3. How can you multiply your gifts?

Today, we’re talking about something we all want but may not know how to find: great friendships. I'll share four practical steps you can take to make and keep awesome friends. Also, I get to sit down with two of my best friends, Jenny and Sarah. We'll wrap up the show with a few journal questions about the importance of friendship.

 

4 Ways to Have Great Friendships as an Adult

Let’s face it: It’s hard to make friends as an adult. We don’t have many natural ways to meet new people. We get set in our ways and get busy with kids and work and errands. If you want to have more friends—or better friendships—you’re going to have to decide to make time for it. Here are four practical actions you can take to get started!

 

How to Make Time for Friends

In today’s interview, I get to sit down with two of my real-life best friends! Through all of life’s ups and downs and changes and challenges, we’ve managed to make time for each other. No—it’s not always easy to coordinate calendars. But it’s worth it. We’ll share some of secrets that have helped us maintain our friendship for almost two decades.

 

What Do Your Friendships Look Like?

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9–12 (NIV)

 

We weren’t created to live alone. We need community. I want you to have people who will be there for you—people you can laugh and cry with, share the bad things with, and celebrate your milestones with. To start making some practical changes in the area of friendship, spend some time journaling your thoughts to these questions: 

  1. What are you looking for in friendships right now?
  2. What specific types of friendships do you desire this year?
  3. What’s one step you can take to grow your friendships this year?
