Kathi is back with another one of her favorite segments: questions with Kelly and Kathi. This past year has left many of us wondering how to keep our house clean and clutter free with everyone at home. Thankfully, Kathi has some great ideas for doing just that:

  • Teach our kids how to be zero sum kids and care for themselves and their things.
  • The importance of routines and boundaries

Kathi and Tonya are back with part two of creating a kitchen you will actually cook in. In part one they discussed the first few principles of creating a kitchen you will want to cook in. They are continuing the conversation this week by helping us limit our decision making so we can get dinner on the table easier and enjoy doing it.

  • Find and reach everything we need  
  • Set up stations in our kitchen  
  • Make our kitchen really work for us

Overwhelmed: How to Quiet the Chaos and Restore Your Sanity

 

Feeling overwhelmed? Wondering if it’s possible to move from “out of my mind” to “in control” when you’ve got too many projects on your plate and too much mess in your relationships?

Kathi and Cheri want to show you five surprising reasons why you become stressed, why social media solutions don’t often work, and how you can finally create a plan that works for you. As you identify your underlying hurts, uncover hope, and embrace practical healing, you’ll become equipped to:

  • trade the to-do list that controls you for a calendar that allows space in your life
  • decide whose feedback to forget and whose input to invite
  • replace fear of the future with peace in the present

You can simplify and savor your life—guilt-free! Clutter, tasks, and relationships may overwhelm you now, but God can help you overcome with grace.

Kathi and Cheri Gregory, co-author of Overwhelmed, get together for this episode for a little discussion regarding the concepts of being overwhelmed and being clutter-free. So often we find that our clutter overwhelms us and that being overwhelmed contributes to our clutter. It can be a vicious cycle.

Kathi and Cheri discuss five steps to keep from getting overwhelmed as you declutter your home, your heart, and your life. Order your copy of Overwhelmed here.
