“Unorthodox Balls” – An Interview with George Khoury

George Khoury was born and raised in South Orange county. He had a great family that loved him, they were always involved in their church, and he was blessed with great mentors, leaders and pastors.

When he was a junior in high school, George decided to own his faith. So that it wasn’t any longer “his parents faith”, but his own true decision to commit to following Jesus. He read “More Than A Carpenter” by Josh McDowell and it impacted him greatly. It made him consider who Jesus said He is… and who He is! This was huge, especially since he’s a guy who hates reading.

But, since his life wasn’t one in the gutter, what changed?

His faith now had purpose… it wasn’t just a checklist of things to do. He wanted to represent Jesus well and affect others according to God’s will. The next year, George graduated High School and started taking his faith to the next level. He was meeting with older guys and was challenged to do things NOW. Waiting for opportunities was over. George decided not to wait anymore to follow Jesus.

Everything was great… “What could ever go wrong?”

That’s where George’s story gets even more interesting:

  • On May 1st, George was diagnosed with testicular cancer
  • He believed he was living a blessed life
  • He wasn’t sure what was going on and not knowing was the worst part of being diagnosed.
  • All he knew was that at 23-years-old… he had cancer!
  • He was scared about what might happen
  • He was scared because he “saved himself for marriage” and wasn’t sure if there would be a sex life at all after this, or if he could have children
  • Everything seemed to happen so fast. He had no time to think… everything just started moving
  • George was embarrassed and nervous to share his diagnosis with anyone. He didn’t want others to know he was diagnosed. He was worried what others would think
  • The time line:
    • May 1 – diagnosed with stage 2A cancer
    • May 16 – surgery to remove testicle
    • June 1 – started a nine-week cancer treatment
    • August 21 – final treatment
    • Four (almost five) months of pain and sickness
  • He found himself on an incredible emotional rollercoaster with overwhelming sickness
  • George was surrounded by a huge amount of love and support that kept him going
  • He hates sounding cliché but his “spirit never waivered”
  • He knew that God would use this for something for His glory
  • George’s advice for other guys:
    • There is nothing wrong with asking for help!“Unorthodox Balls” - An Interview with George Khoury
  • His favorite Bible Verse:
    • we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. (Romans 8:28)
  • How are “the guys” working today?
  • Everything should be working, but chemo could have affected the swimmers
  • There’s a 30% chance that he is sterol, but he had swimmers frozen before treatment
  • How does he check “the guys” to see if he’s healthy?
    • He has monthly checks for lumps, thickness, heaviness or any other differences
  • Today, he is constantly encouraged by positivity
  • Watching others go through their cancer struggle showed him how well he had it.
  • Now, he has a huge heart for others who need encouragement & support.
  • George challenges us to be men of encouragement for others
  • What sort of things should we say or not say?
    • Don’t ask “how are you feeling?” The answer is probably going to be, “Not Good”
    • Tell them to “keep fighting”… be available, go sit during a treatment

This is just a portion of George’s story. You’ve really got to hear how God has increased George’s faith, and used even such a terrible thing as testicular cancer in a young man to reach people and expand God’s kingdom!

The Art of Practicing Hospitality with Kristin Schell

If you are not already familiar with Kristin and her turquoise table, after today, you are going to want to run out and check out her amazing new book The Turquoise Table. It’s about finding community and connecting with those in your community in your own front yard.

The Art of Practicing Hospitality with Kristin SchellYou are in for a treat today. Romans 12 is one of my favorite passages—especially verses 12-13, which talk about the “practicing hospitality.” This is what we are talking about today—hospitality. We all have a lot of gifts from the Lord. As I’ve mentioned on other episodes, I love helping people. A passion of mine to help people simplify—to know when to say “no” to the things that we can, so we can say “yes” to the things that God wants us focused on. When we start simplifying, we start seeing the joy that comes from that.

One of the major themes that you will see woven into each of these podcasts is guests who have said “yes” to God in one way or another. Even when we say “yes” to the most simple of things, God can show up and use that in a big way—just like He used the little boy with his loaves of bread and fishes. That’s exactly what we’re going to hear in this episode. How one person said yes to God in the area of hospitality.

We all have different gifts, but God tells us to practice hospitality! Today we’re going to break down the difference between hospitality and entertaining. Hospitality is opening the door. And as you will hear in this episode, Kristin says you can say “yes” to God and “yes” to hospitality and you don’t even have to open your door! That’s just one of the many things that I love about this episode—we simplify hospitality! When you think of the story of Mary and Martha, you have Martha trying to do it all—trying to be hospitable, and Mary who sitting at the feet of Jesus. That’s what I want to encourage you guys today. Sometimes we get caught up in the busyness of hospitality, and sometimes we just need to sit with the people that Jesus is bringing to us.

I am ultra-excited for you to listen to this episode today! I know that you are just going to love it!

On a “Simply” & “Joyful” side note…

This episode is full of so many great ideas for simplifying hospitality. You aren’t going to want to miss it!

Highlights from This Show…

  • Kristin shares when she isn’t chauffeuring her three kids around in her van (which she swears should have its own zip code) she is hanging out at her turquoise table. She shares the story behind putting a turquoise table in her front yard, and why.

It wasn’t my idea, it was an answer to a prayer. —Kristin Schell

The Lord had to teach me the difference between hospitality and entertaining. — Kristin Schell

  • Kristin shares about the day that she got the message from the Lord loud and clear. At the height of her spiritual meltdown she happened to be attending a discipleship conference. While there she watched a documentary that got her thinking about hospitality. When she ordered a picnic table needed for extra seating for an upcoming party, she had no idea what would enfold.

You can’t be what you can’t see. —Jo Saxon

  • Kristen goes on to share how the idea of community in her front yard caught on, how God stepped in, and how the rest of her neighbors felt about the table in her front yard.
  • Something Kristin didn’t expect was the Turquoise table movement to begin.

What is it that God’s people are longing for that this thing is happening? —Kristin Schell

All of these “I” devices are changing how we communicate. —Kristin Schell

We are losing the art of communication. —Kristi Clover

  • I ask Kristin to share the first time that a table made a big impact on her.
  • Kristin shares a few tips on simplifying hospitality and how we can break free from “picture perfect”.

How to Deal with Mommy Fear with Lisa Whittle

Mommy fear is a real thing. I have struggled for years with fear and anxiety. I’ve learned how to combat it with God’s Word and lots of prayer. In fact the timing of this podcast interview with Lisa was so amazing, since I had just written a guest post about mommy fear for The Better Mom. I had Lisa’s book sitting on my desk waiting it’s turn to be read for the podcast interview…and I had no idea it was about putting “your warrior boots on” to fight fear. See, amazing.

So, I just know this episode is for you if you have ever struggled with fear, anxiety, or worry. I hope you are so encouraged…and I hope you will learn to put your warrior boots on, too.

On a “Simply” & “Joyful” side note…

Lisa talks about how she brings simplicity to her life by saying “no” in a healthy way. She’s learned to rest in a healthy no and that has carried on into her family. Be sure to listen to all she has to say about this on the show.

Get ready for a great interview — and get your own Simply Joyful Podcast mug HERE!

In This Episode…

In this episode, Lisa Whittle and I address “mommy fear.” Your know, that constant state of anxiety moms have when it comes to protecting our children. We share stories of spiritual warfare that have happened in our lives and other people’s lives. We also talk about Lisa’s book, Put Your Warrior Boots On: Walking Jesus Strong, Once and For All, which is largely about the fear women wrestle with and the tools and techniques to combat these thoughts and fears.  I just know you will be so encouraged by this episode!

Highlights from This Show…

  • Lisa shares the story about when a woman told her that she felt Lisa was fearless after listening to her speak. Lisa says she was deeply impacted upon hearing this feedback because she felt anything but fearless. She discusses how she felt God was helping her to see that He wasn’t defining her as “fearless,” but He was calling her to let go of her fear and rise to her spiritual potential.
  • I mention that I sometimes feel like the more anxious or worried I am the better prepared I might be if anything horrible might happen. I literally play out scenarios in my mind. Listening to Lisa helped me to realize that I need to rise up out of this mentality of trying to be brave or strong enough and just let God be present.
  • Lisa talks about the time she made a list of everything she could do if she were brave enough and how it made her feel even worse.
  • She says that we don’t know what the word “brave” means anymore. We call cancer patients and soldiers overseas brave. Yet, we define people’s menial bold decisions, like dying their hair a different color, brave.
  • “We think that if we can control everything, then we are safe. The problem is that we live in a John 16:33 world that says ‘In this world there will be trouble.’ That’s not an ‘if’ statement, that’s a ‘when’ statement.” – Lisa Whittle
  • “Take heart, for I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
  • Lisa talks about how the safest and the best place to be is not in our schedules, and it’s not in our controlling things, but it’s in the care of God.
  • “Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” (Psalm 99:1)How to Deal with Mommy Fear with Lisa Whittle
  • “Put your warrior boots on so that you will be as prepared as possible to walk through this life strong, and to also teach your kids to walk through life strong.” – Lisa Whittle
  • “The Bible is a book of preparation.” – Lisa Whittle
  • Lisa tells us about the 3 types of warrior boots that she brings up in her book. Lisa says that warrior boots is an analogy of strength: Boots of Standard, Boots of Strength, and Boots of Trust. She brings up Deuteronomy 30, about how life is all about choice and not feelings.
  • “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to Hs voice and hold fast to Him…” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20a)
  • I ask Lisa to tell us more about her term “God-ish living.”  Lisa said she came up with the term when a friend asked her what she thought the church’s biggest problem was. She says she immediately remembered the verse from 2 Timothy 3:5, “…having a form of godliness, but denying its power,” and the term was born.
  • “We lack that supernatural power because we don’t have the depth that it takes to really walk through this world strong.” – Lisa Whittle
  • She says God wants us to be holy and godlike because He knows that’s what helps and fortifies our life.
  • The Bible tells us to “stand firm and hold fast to what you believe,” (2 These. 2:15) but we can’t do that when we’re lying to ourselves and saying “I’m good enough. ”Good without God is nothing.
  • Lisa talks about rising up as moms. She says mommy anger has a spiritual component, a righteous anger against Satan in which she tells him that he can’t control her fears and her kids.How to Deal with Mommy Fear with Lisa Whittle
  • “We’ve got to remember that this is a fight and we have the most powerful God on our side.” – Lisa Whittle
  • “Ephesians 1 talks about how God is the highest authority in this entire world, in this universe, and He is never going to relinquish His title…we are to walk through this world with the understanding of the covering of that authority.” – Lisa Whittle
  • I told a story about a friend who was a missionary in India who literally cast demons out of people. She shared about how those people said that they could “see” the power of God in people, but could also tell that most Christians weren’t aware they have this power. It made me realize that I should be living my life with the awareness that the Holy Spirit truly lives in me and that I have great potential through Him.
  • “Choose God for your sanity, honestly. Choose God for your stability… if I didn’t have Jesus, I wouldn’t be a sane person…I wouldn’t be able to have peace and I wouldn’t be able to have joy.” –Lisa Whittle
  • “For you did not receive a Spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you receive the Spirit of sonship, and by Him we cry ‘Abba, Father.’” (Romans 8:15)

Meg Meeker: Help Your Husband Be a Hero in the Home

Welcome back! We have Dr. Meg Meeker, this country’s leading authority on parenting, teens, and children’s health, on today for a Father’s Day special. Meg is a writer, speaker, and a mom of four. She is also a pediatrician who does counseling with her own patients and shares a medical practice with her husband, who is also a physician. I can’t wait for you to listen in and be encouraged!

On a “Simply” & “Joyful” side note…

Meg Meeker: Help Your Husband Be a HeroI bring up a chapter about “living simply” in one of Meg Meeker’s books, The Ten Habits of Happy Mothers and ask Meg to share a little bit about that. Meg says that you’ve got to be intentional when it comes to simplifying, no matter what stage of life you’re in. Meg’s advice is to schedule in quiet time for each day to be by yourself and pray. She also shares about strategies for scheduling extracurricular activities for your kids. It’s great advice! Be sure to listen in.

In This Episode…

In this episode, Meg shares about how she first started her writing career —and the fact that she was Dr. James Dobson’s co-host for 4 years. Then we jump right into discussing the widespread problem that society is faced with the lack of good fathers and the importance for a child to have a “hero” dad. You are going to LOVE this episode!

Highlights from This Show…

  • “Your life will run out very quickly if you don’t take charge.” – Dr. Meg Meeker
  • Meg shares about how she first started writing. Disturbed at the hypersexualization and how it was hard to find decent clothing, she began lecturing about the importance of modesty. A publisher from Washington D.C. heard one of Meg’s talks, and asked if she would be interested in talking to them about her material and printing a book. Her career not only as a doctor, but a writer, grew from there.
  • Meg and I discuss the “epidemic” she mentions in her book about how fathers being marginalized. There are also many children are growing in fatherless homes. Meg talks about why it is so important for a family to have a father — and what research shows about the benefits of having a father in the home.
  • “Fathers are crucial in the formation of healthy emotional stability in a child’s life.” – Dr. Meg Meeker
  • Meg explains how society does not teach or encourage men to have good fatherhood skills. Rather, they are portrayed as idiots. She says it is crushing to children — and is the reason she decided to write Hero.
  • I ask Meg to answer a question my husband had for her: “What are the common mistakes she feels most Christian dads are making.”
  • “The biggest problem dads have is underestimating the importance of their effect on their kids on a day-to-day basis and overvaluing all the ‘stuff’ that kids do.” – Dr. Meg Meeker
  • “I think that another big mistake that fathers make is that they don’t act on their instincts…Kids need fathers to act on their instincts in a very positive way.” — Dr. Meg Meeker
  • “Parenting great kids is extraordinarily simple, but it’s hard.” — Dr. Meg Meeker  
  • I share a little about my background as a child whose parents divorced when I was four years old. Meg explains that, particularly in divorce situations, fathers often make decisions in order to not create conflict. They often don’t understand the importance of one-on-one time with each child vs. screen time. She also talks about the importance of ex-wives not demoralizing their children’s father — and why it hurts them in the long run.
  • I ask Meg how mothers and wives can support dads to become that hero that their family needs. Meg challenges moms to tell their husbands something positive about them once a day for one month, even in front of the kids, and see what the children’s relationship is like with their dad at the end of the month. Her advice is amazing in this segment.
  • “Men need respect. They need respect from their children. They need respect from their wives. – Dr. Meg Meeker
  • I mention the opening of Meg’s book where she talks about how her father was her “safety net.”I asked her advice for dads who never had a good role model for fatherhood. 
  • I also bring up the problem that parents are more unwilling to sacrifice time, energy, and their comfort for their kids. Meg gives her advice for parents who need the motivation to keep going and talks about the pay off in the end.
  • “We have to teach that parenting is sacrifice.” — Dr. Meg Meeker
  • Meg and I discuss how parents should be helping our kids to think about their long-term future vs. the short-term gratifications this world offers — and how to be aware of consequences.Meg says that when she talks to boys, she tells them that society will make them believe they are out of control, but she wants them to believe that they are in control.
  • “Kids believe that the good life is lived before twenty … so we need to present a very different picture. The good stuff is later on, not now.” — Dr. Meg Meeker
  • Meg shares her thoughts about how men need to be morally strong fathers — and the rest struggle that so many have with porn. who are struggling with porn. She talks about how sons can take on the mentality of “why can’t I do it, too?”
  • “The most powerful way a child’s identity is shaped is by watching parents and picking up cues on what parents believe and think him, and then imitating parents’ behavior.” — Dr. Meg Meeker

Don’t Settle for Safe! With Sarah Jakes Roberts

Sarah Jakes Roberts is one of those people who has “been there and done that.” She has learned how to break destructive cycles to discover the best that life can offer someone who refuses to settle. Pregnant at 13, married at 19, divorced at 23, as well as being the daughter of T. D. Jakes, Sarah has amazing testimonials that are found in her two books, Lost and Found and Don’t Settle for Safe. In these books, she shares real stories about where life has taken her and the journey she’s gone through. In this podcast, Sarah and I will be discussing how God allows our past to create an amazing and abundant future for us.

On a “Simply” & “Joyful” side note…

Don’t Settle for Safe! With Sarah Jakes RobertsI asked Sarah about what she does to simplify her life and she has a great response! She gives tips on creating a space where, as a mom, she doesn’t feel guilty for taking a minute for herself—such great advice. I know you’re going to love it!

In This Episode

In this episode, Sarah and I talk about how to not settle for safe (and why). Sarah’s story and testimony are amazing.

I just know you are going to be blown away by this episode with Sarah!

Highlights from This Show…

No matter where you are, you need to know that you can’t be stuck in the pain from your past.” -Kristi Clover

  • Sarah and her husband pastor a church in Los Angeles, which is nothing new as her father was T. D. Jakes, the pastor of Potter’s House. And yet, she says, even though she was raised in ministry, she needed to have her own journey to understand who God is for herself. Now she can share her story with people around the world about the victory that can exist after trials.
  • Sarah talks about Lost and Found, her memoir. Growing up in the spotlight of a megachurch, with the attention and pressure that came along with her last name, put her in a place where she wondered who she really was.

I had to ask Him [God], ‘is this a life that my insecurities created or is this the life that You have for me?’” -Sarah Jakes Roberts

“Even though Lost and Found is my memoir, Don’t Settle for Safe is … me helping other women to do the work that I was able to do. I didn’t want people to read my book and close it and say, ‘Wow, that’s good for her,’ because it’s not just good for me; it should be good news for them too … other women can be empowered to do the same.” -Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • Sarah talks about the importance of “creating new wounds,” and how doing so helps break free from the prison of insecurity and to embrace new life and new dreams with the opportunity to share what she’s learned with others.

“I believe that behind every disappointment and every failure is an opportunity to learn, grow, become better and stronger … sometimes in order to do that, we have to risk creating new wounds so that we can really understand who we are.” -Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • I ask Sarah what practical advice she has for people who are struggling with major challenges.

Moving on is a process; we move on little by little.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts

I would say to the person who’s struggling to really recognize that God has a plan for your life, and His plan was to prosper you and not to harm you.” – Sarah Jakes RobertsDon’t Settle for Safe! With Sarah Jakes Roberts

Sources of inspiration are not there to isolate you, they’re to reflect what’s there on the inside of you.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts

You don’t need to be validated by other people. You don’t need validated by getting a degree from this place, or having this amount of money in your bank account because your validation comes from God.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts

Unstoppable is about being unstoppable in our marriages, vulnerability and love and joy, unstoppable parents where we can protect the light that is inside of our children and help them continue to grow. – Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • I ask Sarah how she discovered that comfort was not what she was looking for to put on as a bandaid. Sarah explains that she had tried to build her life on something that wasn’t realistic at all, and she’s come to find that the only way to achieve comfort is having complete trust and faith in God.
“Comfort comes from knowing that our destiny lies in God’s hand and not what happens in the world.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts
  • Sarah shares a part of her book with us about being aware of the danger of weeds growing when we’re supposed to guard our heart and cultivate fruits of the spirit.Don’t Settle for Safe! With Sarah Jakes Roberts

I had to realize that just because you have fruit in your garden doesn’t mean there aren’t weeds…you’re not living to your fullest potential.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • Sarah talks about her experience going through a teen pregnancy while being so much in the spotlight with her family, not hiding it, and how she moved forward with that situation.

You have to take a moment to forgive yourself…to embrace that girl who was lost and insecure, but also found a way to become a confident woman.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • I ask Sarah if her children are in a similar situation like the one she herself grew up in, since Sarah and her husband are leaders at their church. I also ask if there are any practical things she’s done to keep them out of situations where they might make some bad choices. Sarah believes that there isn’t as much expectation in her kids’ environment to be angels and talks with them about how they feel at church. Sometimes her husband decides to stay home and have a family day instead of preach.

We truly believe that our first ministry is in the home and what we do in the home overflows to what we do with our congregation.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • I ask Sarah what she feels happens in people’s’ lives when they stop settling for safe.
“Sometimes the truth can make you uncomfortable… but that doesn’t mean we should hide the truth.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts

Life isn’t happening to you, you’re happening to life.” – Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • I ask Sarah how she deals with relationships that she has to say no to.

Words to Remember…

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:29)

You have to love it when God lines things up just perfectly! Last week we talked with Wendy Speake about finding ways to use our creative gifts to bless our family — and the world. As women and moms we can easily allow the busyness of life to consume us and snuff out those passions and dreams that we once had. I hope you were encouraged to realize that God gave you your gifts and talents — and you can and should still use them — it might just look a little differently than you originally thought. However, we also talked about how it starts at home.

Being Real & “Rocking” Your Ordinary Life!Well, today God worked it out that this new interview with Lea Ann comes on the heels of Wendy’s podcast. That wasn’t what I had planned. I had these two ladies scheduled weeks apart. However, due to several different factors, they are back-to-back. And get this…today we a going to look at how to “rock your ordinary” life. So, we’re talking about starting at home and pouring your heart into living out an extraordinary life…right in the middle of your “ordinary” day! Yep! God is good!

On a “Simply” & “Joyful” side note…

This is always one of my favorite parts of the podcast. I ask my guests to either share about how they are finding joy or how they are adding simplicity to their lives. Well, Lea Ann has a tip for you that made me laugh out loud! It’s great! I hadn’t thought of it!

In This Episode

In this episode Lea Ann and I talk about how to “rock” life even in the ordinary moments. We aren’t called to make our lives look like other people’s. Our callings are all different. Our gifting is all different, too. This really is such an amazing conversation to have right after Wendy’s episode! They fit so perfectly together! I love how God ended up working out the details for these two episodes to be back-to-back.

Highlights from This Show…

  • Lea Ann and I talk about how our lives can have an impact in other people’s lives. When we stop striving for perfection and just “open the door” and be real with each other, we have the ability to bless others in a great way.
  • Lea Ann gives the encouragement that we need to be happy and and thankful for our own unique calling in life and not to be envious of others’ callings. God is calling us to rock the ordinary!
  • “God not only didn’t call me to that life, He didn’t even give me a desire for that life…my burden, my calling, isn’t to have the cutest house on the block and my calling isn’t to be even a podcaster.” — Lea Ann Garfias
  • “I think we as women allow Satan to…discourage us and make us feel like we’re less than or not as effective in the ministry because we’re not ministering the same way as the lady across the aisle from us. And that is a terrible lie.” – Lea Ann Garfias
  • Lea Ann shares the story of a trial in her life when her marriage was at stake and gives advice to listeners who have or are going through similar issues.Being Real & “Rocking” Your Ordinary Life!
  • “We need to be honest, and that is a huge part of our commitment to one another. [We also need to be] able to share…the truth with our close friends who are supporting us. Finally, we each have to be willing to be honest with the Lord and tell God what is the real issue.” – Lea Ann Garfias
  • “…when we’re brave and when we’re honest, that’s when God can heal us and sanctify us and grow us more to be like Him; not only individually but together as a couple.” – Lea Ann Garfias
  • Lea Ann also talks about the importance of vulnerability and asking our friends for prayer and advice and gives examples from her life.
  • “I don’t have to pretend in front of her, I can ask her for prayer and she will pray for me. I can tell her that I have a sin that I’m wrestling with and she won’t judge me, because she’s a sinner too.” – Lea Ann Garfias
  • “When we are being real with people and they see what God can do through that–that is the ‘testimony.’” –Kristi Clover
  • “If we can have the courage to be honest and open with our friends, we’ll find out that some of the stuff we’re hiding might just be normal behavior or just the regular way the world works, and we don’t have to spend so much time trying to hide things or brush stuff under the rug that really isn’t important.” – Lea Ann Garfias
  • “These little ordinary moments in our lives can have a tremendous impact on someone around us…just saying a nice word and [being] honest and encouraging…we don’t even realize how much that can relieve the burden from someone around us.” – Lea Ann Garfias
  • Lea Ann shares an overview of her past and what advice she has for women who have hard pasts and shattered dreams.
  • “If there are listeners who grew up in a dysfunctional family or from a background of abuse, they recognize it’s hard when you come out of a situation like that to untangle what the difference is between your Heavenly Father and your earthly father…” – Lea Ann Garfias
  • “My prayer is that maybe starting with this book and then leading through healing relationships and biblical counseling, that women will be able to find hope because God does love you.” – Lea Ann GarfiasBeing Real & “Rocking” Your Ordinary Life!
  • “I have every human reason not to believe, but I can tell you, that it is my faith in God that has restored me to health. Not just physical health, but emotional and spiritual health. God has allowed me to see redemption and healing in relationships that, humanly speaking, you would never expect.” – Lea Ann Garfias
  • “There is nothing more beautiful than to honestly look at the broken pieces of our past and see how God can recreate our hearts and our souls for His own glory.” – Lea Ann Garfias

Words to Remember…

“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ…For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, ‘Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,’ that would not make it any less a part of the body…If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body…Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.” (1 Corinthians 12:12-27)

When we become moms it often feels like we lose part of our creative selves. The things we used to enjoy doing become memories. It’s easy to start viewing motherhood as a choice that voids all the other things we thought we’d do in life. However, God can use motherhood to refine our gifts and talents and use them right where we are — at home. Now, by “at home” I’m not just talking to stay-at-home moms. I’m talking to all moms.Life Creative Starts at Home with Wendy Speake

God did not make a mistake when He gave you all your incredible creativity and unique gifting. You can still use them. Sometimes it just looks a bit different than we first thought it would look.

On a “Simply” & “Joyful” side note…

This whole podcast talks about how to find joy using the creativity that God gives us. Our conversation was so rich and filled with goodness, tips for finding more joy, and how to simplify our big dreams and use our gifting right where God has us — that we never got to an “official” Simply Joyful moment at the end. So, don’t miss this whole episode! It’s all in there!Life Creative Starts at Home with Wendy Speake

Highlights from This Show…

 

In this episode Wendy and I talk about the dreams moms have and how we often feel hindered and burdened with motherhood. We hope you will be encouraged to explore the dreams, talents, and gifts that God has given you — even while being a mom!

I know you are going to be blown away by this encouraging episode with Wendy!

I could not be more excited to have my amazing friend Tricia Goyer be my first official guest on my new podcast. Tricia is one of the most inspiring people I know. I find myself sharing parts of her story (anonymously) with others all the time. You know those conversations like, “I have this friend who…” People are always so blown away by her story and how she and her husband have said, “Yes!” to God in some ways that not many would be up for. I can’t wait for you to hear it!God Uses Your Pain and Your Past for Good

We all have “baggage.” You know, those things in our past that we wish hadn’t happened. Past pain and hurt that left a scar on our heart or a wedge in a relationship. There we are all the same. However, how we deal with that pain is often dramatically different.

Some ignore it and try to stuff it down deep inside where they hope it won’t bother them again. Some hide it and pray that no one will ever find out about it. Some choose to forgive and find peace with their past.

Then there’s Tricia…

This is where Tricia’s story is so amazing. I can’t wait for you to hear all about how Tricia allowed God to weave together her story in such an impactful way — both for others and within her own family.

On a “Simply” & “Joyful” side note…

I love talking to my guests about ways they add simplicity and joy to their lives. Well, Tricia is also one of those people you stand back and think, “How does she do it all?” She is a mom to ten…did you catch that…10 kids! Yep! Plus, she’s a very accomplished author!! She’s written over 60 books! I can’t wait for you to hear that segment of the podcast.

In This Episode…

In this episode, you are going to be blown away by Tricia’s story. She will encourage you to “press forward” toward what God is doing in your life.

Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,.” — Philippians 3:13 (ESV)

She also shares some of the advice that she received from her life coach that has helped her to find more balance and joy.

Highlights from This Show…

— We talked about the importance of taking every thought captive.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” — Philippians 4:8

“We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take everythought captive to obey Christ.” — 2 Corinthians 10:5

— Tricia is involved with Teen M.O.P.S. and Project Zero (in Arkansas)

— I just love the photos that Tricia shares on Instagram and Facebook. You’ll want to be sure to follow her there. (I wish I was able to find that picture for you to see…that was a lot of shoes.)

— Books we discussedPrayers That Changed History (my favorite) and Praying for Your Future Husband.

Words to Remember…

Here are a few fun quotes from this episode. Please feel free to share the images on social media. Tricia always has so many wonderful words of wisdom. Here’s a few that stood out to me. I’d love to hear from you in the comments about what stood out to you in this podcast.

“God can use what we feel ashamed of to make a difference in others lives.” — Kristi Clover

“God showed me that my story can help people so they don’t don’t have to go through the same pain.”  — Tricia Goyer

“We always want our kids to grow up, follow their dreams, and do great things for God…but then we are afraid to do that ourselves. It’s a great example for our kids to see ‘if Mom does it and can do great things for God, I can too.’”  — Tricia Goyer

“That is my hope for all my kids, that they find that thing that makes them feel like “I was created to do this.” And for them to be able to pursue it and really enjoy it. Even though it is hard and there is work, there is joy in it, too.”  — Tricia Goyer

“Whatever negatives thoughts are running in my mind, capturing those thoughts and thinking in positive ways, has brought so much joy.”  — Tricia Goyer

“A lot of circumstances haven’t changed, there is still laundry and messes, but my attitude towards them has changed. I don’t rehearse those negative thoughts over in my head and that has brought me joy…”  — Tricia Goyer

I am so excited that this day is finally here! The Simply Joyful podcast is finally “live!” 

The purpose of the Simply Joyful Podcast is to encourage and inspire you to find simple ways to bring more joy into your day. Whether you are looking for a little encouragement in your faith, family, home, homeschooling (if you do) — or just in life — then this is the podcast for you! Let’s get real and talk about the challenges that we face as women in our day-to-day lives. My guests and I will discuss practical tips and “hacks” about how to find harmony in relationships, order in your home, and how to add a little good ol’ fun to your week. My prayer is that this podcast will bless you and add a smile to your face (even if it causes a few new wrinkles) — and to hopefully help you “Live Simply” and “Be Joyful.”

This podcast has been a long time in the making. I’ve spent so much time researching and praying about this podcast. The last couple of months I’ve been busy recording interviews with some extraordinary guests — yes, in my closet. I’m a closet podcaster. As silly as it sounds though, the sound quality is great in there. Plus, I can lock the door of my bedroom so I don’t have little visitors pop in while I’m recording.

In This Episode…encouragement in simple things that bring joy to your day

In this episode I share about my vision for the Simply Joyful podcast and a little behind the scenes on why it took so long for the podcast to get off the ground. (It was originally going to launch in spring of 2016). I want to take this opportunity on my very first episode to let you know what to expect in each episode, as well as let you get to know me and my family a bit better. I actually share the story about how my husband and I met and a little bit about each of my kids. I also talked about how God uses topics that I speak about as opportunities to refine me. Speaking on family unity years ago and now on joy have come with some crazy struggles.

I hope you will be encouraged with every episode of this podcast…starting with this one!

Highlights from This Show…

  •  My God story about how Steve and I couldn’t see eye-to-eye about having more kids. I wrote a post all about it HERE.
  •  Our family’s favorite comedianTim Hawkins (this is Wade’s favorite DVD of his comedy acts).
  •  Speaking: I love to speak. You can see the topics I speak on HERE.
  •  The first workshop I did for our church was on organization for moms. I wrote a series on it! The introduction to the series can be found HERE. (It’s called the “M.O.M. = Master Organizers of Mayhem”)
  •  My crazy trip to Spain was definitely not a typical DITL for me. I share about that story HERE.
  •  The death of my father-in-law was very hard on our family and definitely tested the source of our joy. I talk about how we learned to find balance through this time HERE. I share a few extra details about what we had going on this past summer in this post.
  •  “The Joy of the Lord is My Strength” by Rend Collective has been such an encouragement to me and I feel so honored that I was given permission to use this song in my podcast.
