It is so easy to get caught up in a complaining mindset. Yet, the Bible tells us we should do ALL things without complaining. Not just when things go our way. Not just when we have a good day. We are going to dig into God’s Word today to see what God has to say about our complaining culture and how to stop it. There is a key to stop complaining- find out what it is!
We walk through life always thinking if we just get through the next trial or the next stage, things will finally settle down. Well, guess what? Things will only ever be settled in heaven. Join me today as I talk about living for our end game- Jesus- and how the Lord has shown me this in my life lately. It will change how you live when you focus on your TRUE reason for living!
“You can’t take it with you.” My Grandma always said this and it’s part of the legacy that she passed down to me. As we have lived as a self-employed family for over a decade, we have seen the benefits of this lifestyle and know we aren’t building a pension, or a bank account, but the Kingdom. Nothing I pass down to my family will ever last, but our greatest treasure is in things that can not be taken from us.
Let’s face it. In today’s culture, the perfect home is glorified. The aesthetics are everything. The decor needs to stay on trend. And for many of us, we look around our homes and feel defeated. Yet, we are a society of abundance. We have more than we need. We should be thankful for the roofs over our heads and the places we call home.
Today I have a special guest, Jenny Nanninga, joining me as we talk about normalizing “normal” homes. Jenny lives in a smaller home with five children and gives a beautiful perspective on being content with what you have (even when discontentment creeps in) and gives practical advice for those of us to remember the purpose of our homes– our dwelling place. Make sure to listen to the end to hear her beautiful statement on this.
Jenny is a wife and mother of five daughters living on the Central Coast of California. She and her family strive to love out God’s calling on their lives to homeschool, serve the church, and love the world through hospitality while living small, in just 800 square feet! They love adventuring outdoors, exploring God’s creation, pretending they have a small farm in suburbia with their chickens, cats, and dogs, and reading ALL the books. Jenny writes for different publications with a focus on homeschool, motherhood, and biblical womanhood. It is her desire to point others to Christ and to help them grow in their understanding of scriptures and to live fully in all that God has called them to.
