Simple Summer • Podcast Ep 50

Summer is here! Can you hear me shouting from there? I absolutely love, love, love summer. I love the hot weather, I love the downtime, and I love the loose schedule. It’s all about summer for me!

Yet, nowadays many of us feel like as soon school is out, we need to get those kids busy and fill up the calendar. Or we feel like maybe we should live up to the Pinterest boards to make great activities, and then we feel the pressure to make good memories.

Summer can not only be simple, but a very useful time. I’m chatting about unplugging (both kids and adults) and using summer to recharge, renew, and rest. Make use of your time to spiritually nourish yourself as well and spend some down time each week unplugged while seeking Him above the noise of the world and the normal schedule of the year.

I am also sharing with you what my kids answered when I asked them what their ideal summer looked like. 😉

Lastly, here are some ideas to keep your summer simple:

The Benefits of Living Simply • Podcast Ep 49

The Benefits of Living Simply

Today I am talking about the benefits of living a more simple life. This is not about minimalism and there are no “rules” to living simply. But at the core, we are going to discuss the freedom found in living for God and not for the things of this world.

I am also sharing some things about me that may surprise you!

No Words Before His Word Challenge, Simply...Living For Him

Be Transformed: His Word Before Others

By the time you are reading this, I pray you have already set your mind on things above. Last week, I kicked off a new challenge for this month– Set no words before your eyes, until you have set His Word before your eyes. If you haven’t seen the posts, click here!

So how are you doing? I am so excited to have us ALL encourage each other in this. Perhaps you need the discipline to get in the Word first each day. Or maybe you have no trouble with this, but you can be an encouragement or accountability partner to someone else who may need it. Wherever you are in your walk, the most important thing for all of us to constantly seek Him in all things.

This morning, my Bible reading brought me to Hebrews. What I really love about my early time with the Lord was after my reading, I just laid in my bed praying for awhile. I didn’t feel the need to be “rushed” through. This has come a long way from the days (and I still stumble many times) of reading and still feeling the need to “rush” through so  I could get to other things.

I love sitting at Jesus’ feet. There is no place I’d rather be. When the things of this world tug at me, He makes known to me what is most important. 

This world is noisy and screaming for our attention. But I can’t even attempt to walk and live in it if I am not equipped fully before doing so. Spending time with Him in His Word and prayer sets my mind and heart properly first.

It’s such a simple thing really. Something we all should be doing without question, but so often this world drowns out what is most important. And the conversation with the Lord doesn’t end once the Bible is shut and I am off and running. It is continuous throughout the day. I need Him as much as I need the air I breathe.

Comment below and let me know how you are doing! I will be doing a Live Facebook video in the short future to talk more about this. Join me over there this week!
