We are kicking off our new series, Secrets of a Centered Soul with pastors, spiritual directors, and Enneagram trainers Doug and Adele Calhoun. They share how the Enneagram is a tool that helps us better understand ourselves so we can know better how to connect with God.

As Doug says in the episode, "So much about the spiritual life is about awareness." The Enneagram helps us become more aware of our blind spots, patterns, and false narratives so that we can put on the new identity that Christ offers his flock. We go through the "not enough narrative" of each Enneagram number and which spiritual practices can help each number better connect to God's heart.

This new series is about tools and frameworks you can use in your everyday life to live with a centered soul. One that is centered on Christ. "And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together." -Colossians 1:17

In this final episode in our Spring Refresh Series, our Sisterhood Home Coach, Krista Gilbert, answers your questions about problem areas, redecorating, and how to refresh an outdoor space.

We talk closet clutter, when to keep an item and when to give it away, how to organize kids’ papers and artwork, and what to do with the many paper piles around the house.

Krista also gives an easy to follow four-step plan for redecorating a space that needs some love.

You will love this practical episode as you refresh your home this spring.

Jam packed with practical ideas, professional organizer Lisa Trigsted shares with the sisterhood her best tips on stuff management for a family. Known on social media as Neat Freak Mckinney, Lisa shares her simple yet life changing tactics for families who are swimming in stuff.

So what does Lisa suggest? First, edit out the extra things. Then maintain new organizing systems with a weekly reset. These simple tactics can change how your family manages and relates to stuff. Once organized Lisa encourages listeners to challenge themselves to a spending freeze and eventually incorporating the one-in-one-out rule.

We spend a good part of the conversation covering how to get family members on board with an organizing plan and how to tackle big projects and maintenance as a team. Lisa understands the real-life challenges moms have in keeping a space organized and doesn't shy away from the "but how?" questions. You will feel absolutely inspired and empowered to tackle that stack of papers or overstuffed closet after listening to this episode. So go ahead and push play for your next dose of our series on Spring Refresh.

Krista has been home coaching Alex on her laundry room the past few weeks to kick off spring cleaning, and we are talking about the experience on the episode today. The laundry room dilemma led to coaching around other spaces, and also to identifying some important internal discoveries along the way.

We explore what holds Alex back from doing what she knows she needs to do in her home, how she was able to push past those obstacles, and what she learned and accomplished.

You will hear parts of your own story in this one and it will encourage you to make changes that will propel you forward.

If you are a person who needs a little bit of motivation to get your spring refresh going, or any kind of refresh, this is a great place to start.
