Though Erin and I have different routines, this episode concludes with three key tips to help you create a daily quiet time routine in your life.

Episode #215-Listener Question About Being Overwhelmed with Cheri Gregory

Episode #215-Listener Question About Being Overwhelmed with Cheri Gregory

I'm-Overwhelmed-Blog

ListenNowHave you been feeling like you can’t get it all done? Are you overwhelmed?

Kathi talks with Cheri Gregory, her co-author of their upcoming book Overwhelmed, How to Quiet the Chaos and Restore Your Sanity, to answer a listener’s question.

“Hi Kathi!  I found your blog via Cheri Gregory’s blog. I’ve been enjoying (and hopefully learning) from your blog posts and podcasts. I’ve been looking at my stuff, my house, my responsibilities, my kids, etc, lately and feeling like I am somewhat out of control. The physical stuff generally is used and gets put back within a one foot radius of where it belongs.  I can purge stuff without any problems and have done some throughout my married years. But when it comes to getting everything done in a timely manner without missing anything, I start to feel like my brain is too full or too small or has some kind of black hole somewhere! (Maybe the mysterious force that normally eats socks has taken up residence in in my head? )  

Four homeschooled kids ages 9, 7, 4, and 1 tends to add a whole other load of responsibility and tasks. Where do I start and what do I do?

Signed, a slightly frazzled mom otherwise known as A.”

Listen to this episode to get great advice and tips from Kathi and Cheri.
