Kathi invited her friend Joy Beth Smith, author of Party of One, a book just releasing today, to discuss finding freedom in whatever walk of life God has us in right now.

They talk about how to support our single friends or family members as well as how our churches can include our singles into our language and culture. This is such an honest conversation between two women that want the best for one another and the people listening in. Don’t miss this great conversation!

Kathi Lipp invited our Clutter Free Academy queen Tonya Kubo to the studio to discuss her epic transformation from doing the Clutter Free Bible Study this time last year. We talk a lot about Clutter Free in terms of our stuff. But this week we get down to the nitty gritty about the heart and spiritual side of our clutter. What does Jesus have to say about our stuff? It turns out, quite a bit.

Kathi and Tonya talk about how the spiritual side of their clutter was an integral piece of changing their own hearts and in turn, their lives. We also discuss what to expect on our upcoming online group study. For more info on our group study click here.

Eps #287: Finding Selah, the Simple Practice of Peace

In this episode Kathi chats with Kristen Kill, author of Finding Selah, The Simple Practice of Peace When you Need it Most. After the birth of her oldest daughter, before post-partum depression was widely diagnosed, Kristen remembers the fog that surrounded her. Rather than cry out to God, she retreated, tiptoeing around God, afraid to speak.

Kristen shares the need for us to create a space of rest, a space of quiet in our lives so we can re-sync with Jesus throughout our day.

Join us for this thoughtful episode and be encouraged!
