How do you know if you’re struggling well or just plain struggling?
Just Em is back again with part two of a four-part series on what it means to Struggle WELL. This week we deep dive on the E portion of WELL. E is for Expect.
This week the Struggling Sisters talk spring. Find out what we found in our planters and what we’re planting next. Some spring blooms have brought up past trauma for Em and there is a little update on the new jobs. Em springs some spring facts on us and Katie discovers what spring fever is. This summer we urge you to join us a Jesus craft camp! Details below, you will LOVE IT!
How can you live your life more fully YOU? Do you need permission to take a hot minute to check in with yourself?
This week we meet Emily, a grad student and a mom in a busy season of life who has practical advice on how we can connect with ourselves and our Father. We talk about creativity and all of the different shapes it can come in. Did you know you can be creative and connect with God without buying the entire contents of aisle 10 at Michaels?
We answer all of the tough birthday questions this month, like: What do you do when you forget a birthday? What’s the deal with gift bags? Do you do the party drop-off move with your kids?
Rebecky has had a celebration breakthrough this year! She shared with us why it’s so important to celebrate yourself and how to not be weird about it. Em shares her go-to gift for girlfriends.
Also, Rebecky got some fly electronic accessories and we find out why Em is giving away her designer dog.
Do you need a laugh break? Have you always wanted to know the truth about St. Patrick’s Day?
This week we give you a quick rundown of St. Patrick’s day history (as we understand it) and we explore some Irish phrases and accents that we enjoy. The original plan was to focus on community so Emily shared her normal community “fake news”. A quick round of Are You into That? helped us determine we aren’t scrunchie girls anymore, even if it’s cool.
I feel overwhelmed by housework. My brain can’t seem to process monotonous tasks like de-cluttering. There is a HUGE difference between how I want my house to look and how it looks right now.
Dana K. White is an author, podcaster, speaker, and (much to her own surprise) a Decluttering Expert. In a desperate attempt to get her own home under control, Dana started blogging as "Nony" (short for anonymous) at A Slob Comes Clean in 2009. Today, Dana shares realistic home management strategies and a message of hope for the hopelessly messy in her books: Decluttering at the Speed of Life and How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind. Dana lives with her husband and three kids just outside of Dallas, Texas. Oh, and she's funny.
