In today’s episode, I talk about a profound revelation that came to me earlier in the day. I have a lot of stuff, and it made me feel overwhelmed with just how much I consume. It’s easy to get overwhelmed, but it’s also important to take a moment and center yourself. We can opt to worry about the small things or take some comfort knowing most things almost always get sorted in the end. I encourage you to focus on the less and be mindful of what you allow to enter into your home.

  • Feeling consumed with consumption  (2:15)
  • Refocusing on thanking the Lord for what we have (4:04)
  • Seeking inspiration on social media and following those who encourage you (5:20)
  • If I could raise my child again, a poem (6:28)
  • When the mom guilt comes in (8:06)
  • Building traditions and incorporating more fun and spontaneity (10:15)
  • Less correcting, more connecting (14:56)
  • Taking a moment to step back as an adult and tapping into our inner child (18:23)
  • Slow down and enjoy having “less” (22:05)
