463 The Checklist Challenge Part 2 Questions with Kathi and Kelly

     463: The Checklist Challenge Part 2

Questions with Kathi and Kelly

Kathi is here with her friend Kelly Wilbanks, who takes your great questions and brings them to Kathi to come up with the answers about all things clutter free. Today, they are continuing the discussion about Kathi’s best hacks and how to get things done in a short amount of time. It’s common to get overwhelmed very quickly. Kathi’s solution is all about the Checklist Challenge. The problem with most checklists is that many items on them tend to be way too far-reaching and contribute to overwhelm. Take Kathi’s advice and don’t participate in abuse of the checklist. Instead, tune in to find out how you can thrive with a checklist by:

 

  • Breaking it down
  • Imagining the space before you start
  • Pre-deciding
  • Curating & not settling for second best

Taking Care of Your Future Self Through Transitions and Change

Taking Care of Your Future Self Through Transitions and Change

 

 

Going through transitions and major changes in our life can change the game of de-cluttering.

We are never just de-cluttering. We are changing the way we think and live in our spaces.

Sometimes we have to make decisions to put certain things on pause in order to best take care of ourselves.

The one thing we don’t want to put on pause is our joy.

Join in to hear this great Facebook live video where Kathi passionately discusses these things more in depth and encourages

us to make small changes to take care of our future selves.

459 Common Ground Loving Others Despite Our Differences with Amberly Neese *Sponsored Podcast* May 4

459:  Common Ground

Loving Others Despite Our Differences

with Amerbly Neese

 

Clutter steals our peace and it also steals the peace of the ones we love. Join Kathi today in a great conversation with Amberly Neese, author of Common Ground, discussing how we can live at peace with other people. Clutter issues in our head, our heart, and our home often disrupt this peace and cause tension between loved ones. Join in the discussion to find out ways that we can clear out this clutter and live at peace with others by:

  • Finding common ground
  • Asking important why questions
  • Fully embracing and loving God, ourselves, and then others

 

Common Ground: Loving Others Despite Our Differences

 

Whether it is in politics, the professional world, a party, or a pew, we face conflict every day. As discussions get more heated and social media is deluged with opinion-spewing, hurt feelings, and broken relationships, we need hope and practical tools to navigate the tumultuous waters and live at peace with everyone.

Fortunately, the Scriptures hold the key to living at peace despite our differences. In Common Ground, a four-week Bible study, Amberly Neese combines stories of sibling rivalries from the Bible with personal experience, humor, hope, and her love of God’s Word.

Stories examined from the Old and New Testaments include:

  • Joseph and His Brothers: How to Combat Jealousy

  • Moses, Miriam, and Aaron: How to Work Together Despite Differences

  • Mary, Martha, and Lazarus: How to Appreciate the Contributions of Others

  • Rachel and Leah: Having Compassion for the Plight of Others

These stories point us to peace and reconciliation in all our relationships, reassuring us that it is possible to find common ground with everyone—despite our differences.

Giveaway: For a chance to win the Common Ground prize pack, answer this question in the comments below:

What is it that you feel is the biggest benefit to these difficult relationships in the past year

What happens when we’re able to switch to grace-based decluttering instead? Well, that, friends, is a beautiful thing. Listen in to discover how to make the switch and get back on the wagon by:

 

  • Resting but not quitting

456: Jen Hatmaker and Kathi Talk:

Things, Money and How to Make a Difference in the World

(Part 2)

Kathi and Jen Hatmaker, who needs no introduction, are talking about all the things and how to make a difference in the world. Too much of everything led Jen to a social experiment that she lays out in the book Simple and Free. Listen to Kathi and Jen candidly talk about how to get over some of those internal dialogues that lead to believing more stuff makes us happy and discover the truth about:

 

  • How finances and clutter go together
  • How lending each other courage and resolve has a contagious effect
  • How fear, guilt and shame keep us trapped

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.

Jen Hatmaker

The high-level stuff: I’ve written several books including NY Times bestsellers For the Love and Of Mess and Moxie. I host the For the Love Podcast which has won a bunch of awards, and I speak all over the country. I created the Jen Hatmaker Book Club where I nerd out every month with thousands of women who believe good books are everything and stories still matter. I lead an online community of millions of women, and they are my life force, personal think tank, and comic relief.

The low-level stuff: I still use a paper calendar which you will pry out of my cold, dead hands. I also use my original AOL email account unironically. I love cooking but am a terrible teacher in the kitchen because I just want all those kids to leave me alone. Big fan of 90’s country music. I can drive a boat and pull kids on a tube. I secretly like Totino’s frozen pizza which costs like $1.19 and I’m not sorry. I don’t like sad movies; never seen a Nicholas Spark film. My favorite show is CBS Sunday Morning. We live in a 1908 farmhouse which is very creaky and thus helpful while raising teenagers who might want to leave at 3:30am. I love concerts but only when we can sit down now; we aren’t Olympians. The Secret Garden was my first favorite book. I drink Almond Joy Flavored Creamer in my coffee and won’t be reformed. These are all the important facts of my life (favorite Facts of Life character: Jo).
