What is something we all need? We do every day? That God made us to do? Sleep!

And yet many of us struggle with getting consistent, quality sleep. Dr. Val is here to the rescue. An M.D. and a sleep specialist, she works with women on creating sleep habits that allow them to be more effective in the world (ahem...world changers for good right where they are.) She joins us in an informative conversation about our sleep challenges and how they change as we age.

Here's the good news: Dr. Val says it doesn't have to be hard! We talk through sleep apnea in women, wind down routines that train our minds and bodies to know it's time for bed, and ways to tell our thoughts they are not welcome at 3:00a.m. If good sleep feels impossible to attain, this practical conversation will explain some of the common challenges women face and small changes we can make to feel more rested tomorrow.

We make a million tiny decisions every day. When our home systems are not strong, those small decisions can become big ones. We can't find the keys. We don't know if we have any tuna. We wonder where that belt has gone. We did have a belt like that right?

When our home systems are strong, our home is working for us rather than us working for our homes and stuff. Professional organizer, Morgan Tyree, returns to the sisterhood to talk about her tips for the hot spots around the house. From the kitchen to the garage, she gives us common trip up points and how we can maximize those areas to work for us.

We can't change some things about our homes, but we can influence what comes into them on the front end and then how we organize what stays. No matter your space set up, Morgan covers how you can make your home work for you rather than you working for your home. That is leading your life in your home!

We hear about the idea of shame, it's a concept that has been talked about a lot the last few years. How do we define it? What is shame? And how should we address it?

Our guest on this episode, Jasmine Holmes, describes shame as the feeling or need to hide, much like humanity felt in the Garden of Eden when sin entered the world. As we leave our Easter celebrations behind us on the calendar, we can remember the victory we find in Christ. 

Jesus's resurrection makes a new way for us. This hope and renewal can be true in our shame journeys as well. When we remember the freedom we have in God's grace we can move forward without hiding from God. 

Jasmine Holmes is a mom to three young boys, teaches history, and writes from her home in Jackson, Mississippi. In this conversation, Jasmine walks us through some questions to ask ourselves when we feel the need to hide, and some proactive steps we can take as fallen people to be held accountable by a trusted community of people who love us.

Identifying and working through shame is not a one and done experience, but a process we work out throughout our lives. Jasmine's perspectivepoints us to move toward Christ, instead of hiding from him, when we get those feelings that we've done something wrong. He knows us and loves us already.

We hear about the idea of shame, it's a concept that has been talked about a lot the last few years. How do we define it? What is shame? And how should we address it?

MINDSET MANTRAS

Matthew 10:29
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Love + Light

“Discomfort is the price of admission to a meaningful life.”

Essence Words: exuberance, wisdom, magic, radiance, love

3 THINGS TO START DOING TODAY FOR MINDSET

  1. HUNT THE GOOD – Write 3 good things and WHY they happened.
  2. Write up a T chart – write up the lie and the truth (what we want to be true or what is true)
  3. Ask these five questions:
    what lights my heart on fire?
    what keeps me up at night?
    what makes me stand out in a crowed room?
    what have I dreamt about doing but I’ve never done?
    what do other people tell me that I’m good at?

Krista's MORNING MAGIC ROUTINE

  1. Get 7 hours of sleep
  2. Get up when your alarm goes off – don’t push snooze
  3. Practice visualization for 30 seconds
  4. Spend 10 min. to 1 hour setting intentions for the day and reflecting / spending time with yourself.
  5. Practice specific gratitude
  6. Move your body
  7. Harness the Progress Principle by choosing how you will move one step forward in something you care about
