In this week’s episode we’re chatting about:
Just a quick hello to all of my Keep the Faith listeners out there – thanks for being part of the community of contagious encouragement.

It’s beautifully done and incredibly empowering.

When themes continually resurface in my life, I know that they are something I need to podcast on and really dig deep into reflection. The always behind feeling is something I have been familiar with as a working-from-home-mom and it’s a theme that is consistently displaying itself in the lives of my clients.
So, what does it actually mean?
Something about us is lacking, or doesn’t measure up.
The moving finish line or the race to nowhere.
That you’re normal!
Realign your expectations and your goals by going back to a very basic mantra, you can use mine, or create your own variation of it, but the main thing you must convey is that your greatest mission and purpose is to love. If you have lived with love, then you have lived a day well lived ….meaning that there is nothing about your day that could speak to or qualify as “always behind” or “never enough”
I am beautiful.
I am loved by God.
I am loved by my family.
Today, I will love others.
We must saturate our minds with simple truth to override the complicated web of internal pressure and inadequacy with which we have filled our minds.
I pursue two simple things daily: to love well and to learn.
I have wanted to send out an email for over a year now, and wanted it to be perfect, but we are not. 2016 is all about verbs, doing!
I have listened to all of your podcasts from the beginning. I am on the road a lot and your words of encouragement help me get through the day away from family and grueling hours. I feel like you are a close friend. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences, raw, candid, real and faith based knowledge and experience.
My wife and I filled out the Annual Guidebook, and talked about it together. I can’t tell you how great this was for us to discuss and share with each other. What a great tool!
My word for 2016 is REST, I would like it to be Joy, but I need to have rest first! 🙂
Rest is a verb, and I plan to tackle that one outside of many others from the Annual Guidebook. Oh, and your 2 part on Type A and Type B, was very insightful. We have the exact same dynamic as you folks do!!
Thank you so much for all you do, how you do it and more importantly WHY you do it.
Looking forward to 2016 and your weekly encouragement!!
