Today we are talking photosynthesis! Photosynthesis is the process by which houseplants create their own food. Which is pretty incredible, right!? Outdoors, in their native habitat, they grow in such a way that they can utilize the resources around them to actually feed themselves! Indoors WE are responsible for facilitating a plant in doing this well. There are three MAIN elements responsible for photosynthesis. Carbon dioxide, water, and light. All three so important and all three very misunderstood by most houseplant collectors. We’re gonna break down each element a little deeper unpacking WHY the plant needs it, how the plant collects it, and what we can do as houseplant collectors to facilitate the plant in doing so. Then we’ll dive into some personal application we can learn from studying, science, and what God has to teach us today through the science of how plants grow. It’s gonna be a good one! ** PLEASE take a moment to leave an iTunes review! I am so deeply grateful for every single one.

Depression feels a lot like you’re doing life underwater when everyone else is on land. It is hard to breathe down here, my mind feels so weak, and it’s far to easy to believe lies that would otherwise feel ridiculous. This is a battle I have been fighting for years and in the last few years I have come to terms with this and FINALLY took the steps to get diagnosed and begin healing from depression and severe anxiety.  I am not a doctor and STRONGLY recommend that you seek medical advice in this topic. My goal for you in hearing this episode is to hear my own growth journey, see the things that I am doing (some of which are VERY simple with a BIG impact) to pursue growing WELL in a hard season of depression and severe anxiety. I am finally “coming up for air” so to speak and I am seeing some beautiful healing come after years of hurting. I am deeply, deeply grateful. I feel safe and happy and very comfortable in sharing these harder topics right now.

This episode is a part two of sorts in response to my failure episode 017. Today I am sharing the ways I am changing in response to a year filled with failure. Some mindset stuff but mostly very tangible and practical boundaries I am placing on all of 2019 to prevent failure, to steward my mental health well, and to better serve my own family and to serve YOU well. This is a real, raw, and vulnerable episode - so go easy on me. Please remember that I am not an expert, I am just a girl ready to share the hard stuff even when it's uncomfortable. I pray that you too can grow well from the lessons I have learned in the last few years. Show notes: Instagram:
(Alternate title: Stop letting failure OWN you!) // Saying there is no such thing as failure is like saying there is no such thing as a stupid question. We ALL know there really are stupid questions and we ALL know failure is real - and that it’s something we will face in our lives time and time again. Today I am laying out my biggest failures AND successes for 2018 - a little late to the party of reviewing last year but I think I needed some space between myself and 2018 to really understand what went down.

I am speaking in broad terms here but take heart in knowing that just because you've "killed a succulent" doesn't mean you are doomed to be a plant killer! It just means that a succulent, or that particular succulent, wasn't a good ft for you or the growing conditions your home provides.

Please keep your invisible sky wizard to yourself, no one wants to hear your preachy sermons on a houseplant podcast.

I've been looking for a good plant podcast, this is not it. too pushy on the patrion sale- i appreciate she wants to get paid, but theres a more tasteful way to go about it. also, she says the word "like" too much.
