Creativity can feel like something we'll get to someday. Like when the kids are grown or the kitchen is clean. If we let it, that someday can turn into delay and even never. Why are we talking about this as part of our series The Healthy Way? Because we believe actively practicing creativity helps us live out how God made us.

Founder of Coffee + Crumbs, Ashlee Gadd, talks with moms all around the world about motherhood and creativity. Our conversation focuses in on how to get started when it's been a while, why creating together is a reflection of doing life together, and how to incorporate some practices into our actual lives that will get the creative sparks going.

You don't have to consider yourself an artist to be creative. You simply need to be someone made in the image of God. You ARE creative, now let's get on with the work of recognizing when we are already practicing creativity, and intentionally adding some outlets into our everyday experiences that help to break up the monotony and see the world with new eyes.

How healthy is your relationship with technology? Do you use your phone? Or does your phone use you? That is a question asked on this week’s podcast and it hits very close to home.

Too few of us ask how we are honestly doing when it comes to digital input. We see “other people’s” digital addiction, but don’t recognize it in ourselves.

Jay Kim, pastor and author, lives in the heart of the Silicon Valley and writes about how we are being formed by the input we receive. He challenges us to be formed in the ways of God rather than Tik Tok or Instagram.

If you are anything like us, you will walk away with important insights about how to better use technology in 2023.

As we look at the new year, we can set health goals for ourselves. That's good! We can also set goals for our families. But how does one do that? And what happens when kids grow (read live into their free will and have opinions of their own) and make decisions we as moms find "unhealthy"?

Jodi Mockabee has a home full of teenagers and joins the sisterhood to discuss creating an environment that values health within our homes. We talk the basics of nutrition and exercise, but we also talk about modeling healthy behaviors, how to set realistic habit goals for ourselves, and when to allow our kids to experience natural consequences. Everything from pornography to food choices, we consider both the how and the why of leading our families toward health.

Mom, if you are wondering where to start in your own life, if you feel like your kids are harder to convince to move their bodies these days as you drag them out of bed, if you have ever wondered how you should handle a repeat unhealthy choice, this episode is for you. Jodi offers practical tips to move toward health in mind, body, and soul in the new year.

Statistics tell us that church attendance is down, and many are leaving the traditional church. COVID also led to decreased church attendance as people got comfortable sitting in front of televised services in their pajamas. Today on The Healthy Way Series we are exploring the role of in-person church and its value in our lives.

Author and church expert, Ericka Anderson Sylvester, offers insight into how to find the right church for you or your family, what to do if your spouse or children don’t want to go with you, and why it’s never too late to return to a church body after being absent.

If you have been considering going back to church, or attending church for the first time, this episode will be encouraging. If you are a regular church attendee, this episode will help remind you why it is important to continue investing in the local church body.

We’ve never covered this topic on the podcast before and we’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy New Year sisters!

We are starting 2023 with our annual Healthy Way series. All things new are impacted by expectations, sometimes expectations set us up for success, and sometimes they don't. How do we move toward growth as we change the calendar page without striving? Do we put our faith in God or in ourselves to make changes? If we peel back the layers of our intentions, what do we find?

We cover all of these questions with Scarlet Hiltibidal. We also hear about how she grew up in the green room of SNL (true story) and how her early adventures impacted her view of the world. A great way to start the new year, a sister-to-sister chat that swings between childhood memories, the impact of strangers, hiding under the bed covers in China, and seeing a relationship with God as a gift.

We'd love to know what you are hoping for as you move into 2023? What are you hoping for? How do you balance the agency God's given you with knowing you don't need to do anything to earn God's love? Join the conversation!
