I'm in a season of learning Jesus in a new way.He's teaching me a part of his identity that I don't think I've fully trusted or even understood, and that's knowing him as the God who Provides for his daughter.The more I allow him to shape my understanding and heart, the more I recognize his faithful hand in my life.Provision and riches are not the same thing.When did making money in my businesses become the primary motivation for my work? When did I begin to trust in my ability and marketing skill to convert financially more than His ability to provide for my family and me?I'm sure it has something to do with steeping myself into man's ways and knowledge, but God is tearing it all down in order to replace it with His divine business building, which has very little to do with financial goals, and way more to do with faith in his ability to provide - no matter how he decides to do it.In this episode, I'm exploring Jesus' parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard as I process the difference between making a business decision or a spiritual decision.And if  you're ready to be challenged the same way I was with how I steward the work of my hands, I invite you to give it a listen.*************************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanHow to Pray in Color Video TutorialBusy mom leaders struggling to prioritize prayer can turn rushed, distracted attempts into connected intimacy in minutes with this refreshing approach to spending time with God.deannamason.com/prayingincolorPay-What-You-Want Rest & Marketing ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God, spiritually refreshed, and financially fulfilled.And you can pay me whatever you want for it - I'm no longer putting a price tag on my work.Email me at stayrefreshed@refreshedmoms.com to secure a 60-minute Marketing & Rest Consulting Session with me, and you can give whatever God leads you to give to help me raise money to support my family during a season of full-time ministry.
God is teaching me more and more about knowing him as a Provider. This has me divorcing all the ways I know how to bring material gain into my home, and surrendering to trusting him as my true and only source.In this episode, I'm taking a walk through Luke 9 and 10 exploring  how Jesus calls, sends, and provides for those who choose to radically obey him, absolutely shattering the cultural norms his disciples knew, as well as the ones we know today.At the end I ask for you to email me if any of this speaks to your heart, and you can do that at stayrefreshed@refreshedmoms.com.*********************************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanHow to Pray in Color Video TutorialBusy mom leaders struggling to prioritize prayer can turn rushed, distracted attempts into connected intimacy in minutes with this refreshing approach to spending time with God.deannamason.com/prayingincolorRest & Business ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God, spiritually refreshed, and financially fulfilled.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingInstagram: @refreshedmoms
If you've ever stood and glared at your husband or child in contempt while they sat peacefully in the living room relaxing after a day of work or school while you sweat away in the kitchen over a meal - that they may or may not eat - after your own full day of work (and in my case right now work AND school), honey, you ain't alone.Don't you wish everyone in that living room would look up and notice those droplets of sweat on your brow?Wouldn't it be amazing to see them all RISE from their couch slumber to take the weight off of you and come help in the kitchen - chop a veggie or two, wash out that pot you need to cook (because one of those jokers used it earlier in the day), or just ask you if they can help you in any way?Well, it doesn't work like that in my home. At all.I have to open my mouth and let people know how I need help, and magically, most of the time when I do, I get the help I need. They honestly are really great at pitching in.However, opening my mouth after stewing in contempt for 20 minutes in the kitchen usually doesn't go well for me. We all end up frustrated at each other, and the help I receive is being executed very reluctantly.The only way I've managed to feel consistently supported - without everyone in the house giving me the stink eye - has been talking about it first at a completely different time in a relaxed, friendly setting.And this episode is going to talk about how to do just that.I'm chatting with my friend and Life and Leadership Coach Dr. Kerstin Kirchsteiger about how using family meetings can change the game in regards to getting the help and support you need from your family while working, homeschooling, and managing the home.We all need and deserve the help, and it may just be one short family conversation away.CONNECT WITH DR.

There's a running joke in my family and with my friends about my son.Everyone that knows him knows he's this soft-spoken, gentle, laid back kid that is easy to be around and caused zero disturbances or trouble.The joke: "Except for year #4."Something happened when my son turned four years old - it has gone down in history as my roughest year of parenting, and to this day we have zero clue why.Tantrums and throwing hard things against the wall were his anger expressions of choice, and when he was in that place Eddie and I just could not console him.He was tossed out of preschool class, children's church, and it was a common scene to see me walk over his flailing body as he kicked and screamed on the floor - at home or in the middle of Target.I felt like I was failing him as a mom, and I could feel the silent judgment of others as they watched my son and me in the middle of one of his big feelings expressions.My only answer was prayer (and thank God he met me there with answers), but oh how I would have loved to have my guest in my life those years ago.In this episode, my sweet friend, Boy Parenting Expert and Creator of the Out With Aggression Parenting Course Tosha Shore, is chatting with me about how she teaches us moms with sons how to parent boys peacefully, and is on a mission to create a more peaceful world, one sweet boy at a time by supporting you to care for yourself, connect with your boy deeply, set limits lovingly, and play wildly! What you'll hear:How Tosha believes boys struggling with aggression are being misunderstood. More insight on my story with the season I walked through with my son when began exhibiting aggressive behaviors.The process she takes parents through when they're looking for a way to stop their boy's aggression.The one thing parents can do today that will help their boys and bring peace to their families.Sign up for Tosha's FREE 10-Day Reconnect Workshop by clicking my affiliate link below:REGISTER for the FREE 10-Day Reconnect Workshop**************************************************************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanHow to Pray in Color Video TutorialBusy mom leaders struggling to prioritize prayer can turn rushed, distracted attempts into connected intimacy in minutes with this refreshing approach to spending time with God.deannamason.com/prayingincolorRest & Business ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God, spiritually refreshed, and financially fulfilled.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. 
Meal planning and execution have long been a stressor for me (how about you?).Heated discussions have been had, tears have been shed, and I've often been left with a long grocery list of (what felt like) demands from all the players in my home regarding how they want to be fed.In some way, I was going to wave my magic wand to create dinners that reflected every one's preferences and dietary needs - every night.Listen, if you have this magic wand, please throw me the Amazon link, cause it's as good as bought.But, if you're more like I was - a frustrated, tearful mess staring at the Instacart screen trying to make dinner happen for my lovely family - and happen quickly, cause my life is really full and spending long hours in the kitchen is just not realistic these days - I see you.And I want to help you turn what currently feels stressful into opportunities for deep connection with your children at the dinner table.I'm chatting with my friend and Meal Planning Ninja Marie Fiebach of Feed Your Family Tonight about how we can eliminate meal planning stress and approach it from a more refreshing space, as well as the ways we've used the dinner meal to nurture and gently parent our children in what has now become a safe conversation oasis for us all.What you'll hear:Why are family dinners important to us.How Marie manages family dinner with busy schedules for all and picky eaters.How to foster a culture of stability and connection around the family dinner table.And of course, some simple meal planning hacks that could possibly save your sanity.

If you're feeling like you're not moving as fast as you desire with your business, revenue, or ministry goals, this episode is exactly for you.I'm interrupting the Parenting Well Podcast Series to share this short but important message on how God is in  your slow movement.Moving faster and achieving big things in short periods of time is the way of our culture."My kid was reading at 3 years old!""I lost the baby weight 1 month after giving birth!""My business made $100k in its first year!""I ran a mile in 6 minutes!"We celebrate and validate fast often.But sometimes, God asks us for slower movement, slower pace, and smaller bite-sized goals along the way.Guess what - he's just as powerful in the slow seasons as he is in the faster ones (if not more).In this short solo episode, I want to encourage you if you're in a season of slow - you know, the one where you feel like your kids won't let you be great because you can't get anything done with them around... or the one where you think your business should be making more money by now than it actually is... or possibly there's something you've been trusting God for for awhile and it feels like he's not even listening - that kinda season.God is all up in the slow, my friend. I hope this message encourages you to stay the course, and celebrate how your life of obedience to one small thing at a time reflects your faithfulness. ****************************************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanHow to Pray in Color Video TutorialBusy mom leaders struggling to prioritize prayer can turn rushed, distracted attempts into connected intimacy in minutes with this refreshing approach to spending time with God.deannamason.com/prayingincolorRest & Business ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God, spiritually refreshed, and financially fulfilled.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms
I'm ready to bet that every parent - at some time or another - deals with behavior issues from at least one of their children.The range of severity definitely differs from family to family, but when it's happening with your son or daughter, you're not trying to compare levels - it all feels hard when you're in the middle of it.And, there could be an extra level of difficulty if you're parenting children that are not neurotypical - these behaviors can last a very long time and are not as easily curbed by traditional parenting tools and hacks.It can be exhausting to say the least.How do you keep yourself in the parenting game without apathy?How do you extend your child grace?How do you extend it to yourself?In Episode #3 of The Parenting Well Series, my friend and Post Adoption Parenting Coach Melissa Corkum and I chat about the nuances of parenting challenging behaviors, and how the brain science around nervous system care can be your best friend when applying  it to your parenting, as well as to your own well being.CONNECT WITH MELISSAFREE Video TrainingThe Compassion Challenge for the Discouraged Adoptive Parent: An on-demand video training so you can rebuild your compassion for your child and enjoy parenting again.Understand why your child pushes you away, why you're not a bad parent because you're losing patience, and shed the feelings of shame and guilt.

For many parents, sex is a challenging topic to tackle with kids.We live in a culture that does a very good job with providing access to sex topics, images, opinions, and experiences, but a poor job in navigating the devastating aftermaths of the trauma of "too much too soon" our children deal with - leaving them with so many feelings and questions.Do our kids dare ask us, their Christian parents, about any of it? Is it taboo to share about their sexuality in the home? Are their friend groups a safer space for them to inquire and explore?As a parent of teens, my answer to this question is, "Well dang, I hope not, but I honestly don't know."Here's the thing - sex is beautiful... at least it should be beautiful... because it was created by a God who only makes beautiful things.And it's my dream as a mother for my kids to enjoy healthy, pleasurable, amazing sex with their spouses one day.So, I'm thinking I have to jump in there and do all I can to make sure I combat the secular approaches to sex that I know my kids have access to, with the beauty of God's intended desires around it - tearing down the walls of shame and embarrassment, and cultivating green pastures of freedom and peace.In Episode 2 of The Parenting Well Series, Mom, Author, and Sex Therapist Cath Hakanson and I are chatting about the importance of learning how to talk to our kids about sex, no matter their age or if you feel like that ship has sailed and you're too late to the game.  Join us as we explore how to gently guide a child's sexual character and values in order to give them the best chance of enjoying healthy, godly sex when it's time.CONNECT WITH CATHCath's website: sexedrescue.comMy PDF on books Eddie and I have used with our children over the years.Christian Sex Education Books to Read with Your Kids - download the PDF by clicking here.****************************************************************How to Pray in Color Video TutorialBusy mom leaders struggling to prioritize prayer can turn rushed, distracted attempts into connected intimacy in minutes with this refreshing approach to spending time with God.deannamason.com/prayingincolorFREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanRest & Business ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingInstagram: @refreshedmoms
Maybe you've bought the same lie I bought.You know, the one that says I can have it all and be it all.If you don't know my story, then you don't know how I lived much of my early parenting life living as if that was true, and attempted to work 40+ hour weeks, homeschool my two very young children, manage the home (groceries, cleaning, etc.), volunteer at church, and spend time with God (OK, I wasn't really doing that last one).And... let's not forget being a present wife, sister, daughter, and friend.I was a walking, talking burned out woman before I began to realize I had to let some stuff go.Maybe it was youth and ignorance that had me there, but I thank God I'm not there anymore (well, most days I'm not).And being the Rest Consultant I am, I think it's only fitting to kick off my new series on Parenting Well with an episode on doing and being less.In this episode, Parenting Coach Pam Snyder exhorts us mom leaders by telling us we do not have to try to be it all or do it all, that staying present and focused on the moment God has called us to is modeling for your children how to quiet the noise of the world, and when we surrender what we cannot be or do, we actually submit to who God wants us to really be.Imagine that.CONNECT WITH PAMfruitfulfamiliescoaching.com******************************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanHow to Pray in Color Video TutorialBusy mom leaders struggling to prioritize prayer can turn rushed, distracted attempts into connected intimacy in minutes with this refreshing approach to spending time with God.deannamason.com/prayingincolorRest & Business ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms

January is the most popular month of the year for resets, gaining clarity, fasting and praying.One of the spaces I love taking a break from is social media.

I'm bookending this series with my thoughts on what I believe are some of the most important considerations mom entrepreneurs should make as they are business building.Well, important considerations if you desire for God to guide your steps as you build.Everybody can learn marketing.Everybody can get good at marketing their business if they work at it.But only you can obey God's voice as he speaks to you about how to work, lead, and serve.In this episode, I'm sharing my thoughts about the differences between normal business building - which I talked about in episodes 2 - 5 in this series - and divine business building, which in my opinion, is the only way to do what we do.*******************************************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanRest & Business ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms
I have some good news for you.You don't have to be an expert marketer to enjoy a refreshing business earning rewarding income.There, I said it.You only have to learn how to be a pretty good marketer of your stuff.You don't need perfection - you just need effective.And guess what - you don't have to do a whole lot of things to accomplish that.Think about it - how much money do you really need to pay yourself to make your life feel different? Would earning a check of $3,000 - $5,000 a month (while only working part time hours mind you) be enough to take financial pressure off your household while you raise those babies of yours?For most moms who are new to business while doing the SAHM thing, the answer is yes.And you just don't have to do a ton of marketing to achieve that goal, but you do have to do some.In this no bells-or-whistles episode (I literally just flipped out my mic and started talking), I'm sharing my thoughts on how to leverage simple marketing approaches to get more people in front of the things you sell, and it's my prayer that it takes some of the pressure off of you as you build a refreshing business that you love.*************************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanGrab the Refreshed Moms Spiritual Rest Mini-SabbaticalThe #1 self-guided virtual experience designed to help mom leaders enjoy rest away from work and kids in order to reconnect with God and renew themselves spiritually.deannamason.com/spiritualrestRest & Business ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms
If I had to pick the number one thing I see out there in the new and small business marketing spaces that slows entrepreneurs down, it would be messaging.Hands down.Look, even as a really good marketing strategist, I struggle with my own messaging. #itsathingHear me when I say that it takes patience, work, and more patience to develop a clear marketing message - big corporations literally spend millions of dollars trying to get it right (and they still flub it up sometimes).So, if big money corps struggle with messaging, is it even possible for you to get yours right?Absolutely. In this episode, I'm sharing some of the basics around creating a marketing message that lands beautifully with your community and the people you desire to work with.You can do this!*****************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanJoin the Refreshed Moms Spiritual Rest Mini-Sabbatical CommunityThe #1 self-guided virtual experience designed to help mom leaders enjoy rest away from work and kids in order to reconnect with God and renew themselves spiritually.deannamason.com/spiritualrestRest ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms

No matter how important your work is to you, it doesn’t always translate as important to someone else.Figuring out how to do the work you're passionate about for people that need what you do - that's not always easy to do.You think everyone will love what you do as much as you love what you do, but it’s usually not that simple.Your job as a business owner, however, is to solve problems for the people you desire to help… and the hope is that you don’t have to sacrifice your passion while doing it.In this episode, I'm sharing how to connect the two - passion and problem - in a way that shows the world exactly why they need what you have (because it does).************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanGrab the Refreshed Moms Spiritual Rest Mini-SabbaticalThe #1 self-guided virtual experience designed to help mom leaders enjoy rest away from work and kids in order to reconnect with God and renew themselves spiritually.deannamason.com/spiritualrestRest ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms
After working with literally hundreds of business owners over the past 3 years, I've realized that there are certain things that need to be in place in order for entrepreneurship to be both valuable to end users and financially rewarding to an entrepreneur who desires to build a business with God's guidance and influence.It doesn't boil down to social media platforms (thank God). But there are 5 core components that I've found to be necessary in order for it to:Serve peoplePay wellBe sustainable long termContribute to your life feeling refreshedIn part 1 of this 5-part podcast series, I'm going to share some of the aha moments I've discovered along the way that I hope shed light on what it means for you to build a refreshing business you love.*********************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanGrab the Refreshed Moms Spiritual Rest Mini-SabbaticalThe #1 self-guided virtual experience designed to help mom leaders enjoy rest away from work and kids in order to reconnect with God and renew themselves spiritually.deannamason.com/spiritualrestRest ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms
I spend a lot of time hitting emotional wellness because I spent a lot - if not most - of my adult existence not being emotionally well.As a result of that, I walked around in pain, and I caused many others pain as a result.And, I failed to protect my boundaries, preferences, needs, and feelings, which are all a vital part of just being human. None of us need to ignore those parts of us.In this episode, my former co-host Keli Reese and I are talking about the danger of neglecting your emotions, and how not properly making room for your feelings will directly impact how you operate as a woman, mom, entrepreneur, and so much more. What you’ll hear:Narratives that shape our view of emotionsIs it wrong to “be emotional”?How do we handle emotions Biblically?Practical tips to use the “feel and deal” technique to process emotionsCONNECT WITH KELIIG: @ministryinmothering**********************************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanRest Consulting with MeIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and life margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms
What a joy to share this episode again with the Refreshed Moms Community - it's one of the top 5 downloaded episodes, and I recorded it with my dear friend and fiction author Kelly Burton of Kell of a Story.Why in the world should anyone desire morning or evening routines? Kelly and I believe routines and rituals are key tools in setting our days -- and in maintaining work-life integration and balance, especially in the lives of moms who lead in multiple roles. We're going to walk you through how we create and maintain daily practices, for morning or for evening, and how these habits help us accomplish goals and hold space for the unexpected.This is not always easy. In fact, this is the second time we attempted to capture this subject when we recording it for the Refreshed Life Podcast! I simplified my morning routine and vastly cut down the number of items I was trying to accomplish as a result. Kelly and I both agree that routines help us be more positive, allow us space to process what is weighing heavily on us, focus us toward gratefulness, and even give us energy for the day ahead (or peace for a good night’s sleep!)What we discuss - don’t miss it! How Kelly went from “We don’t need routines” to “We failed without routines.”The spiritual rewards of rituals, and how prayer looks different depending on our seasons.How our routines can help us so much that even our children notice we are better for them.Why having routines in place help us to shift when unexpected needs arise.How to start and end your day with structure in order to keep you focused.How journals and planners can be a strategic part of your routine.QUOTES“We need predictable milestones that we can count on every day. We just work better when our minds and our expectations are organized.”“When you have an intention for your day, you’re much, much more likely to hit the goal.”“My routines are at the mercy of my neediest child.”“Our boundaries and routines are not meant to be legalistic. They are there so when a need arises, your habits are strong enough to withstand a deviation.”“Self-care rituals are designed to make sure your cup continues to overflow.”CONNECT WITH KELLYIG: @kellofastory**********************************FREE Mini-Course - Making a Rest Plan You can turn business burnout around, and it begins with knowing how to rest.This mini-course includes very short video lessons on the 7 ways to rest, my Rest Needs Quiz, and the Graceful Transitions Meditation for Moms.Enroll at deannamason.com/makearestplanRest ConsultingIf your life feels too full and misaligned with your desires around spending time with God, being a present mom, and doing fulfilling work, rest consulting may be exactly for you.I help overcommitted mom leaders lacking time and lif margin to realign their work, faith and rest practices in order to feel connected to God and spiritually refreshed.Find out more about working with me by clicking the link below:deannamason.com/restconsultingJoin my Facebook Community, Spiritual Rest with Refreshed MomsCome nurture your faith with me as we share around scripture, come together in small group discussions, and co-work together as we make room for focused productivity. deannamason.com/refreshedmomsgroupInstagram: @refreshedmoms
I don't know about you, but I struggle with nutrition, fitness and body image.I've yo-yo'd back and forth from diet approaches and exercise routines, and the only way I've been able to see significant results has been with strict, regimented programs that aren't sustainable.I've had to come to peace (rather I'm working on it...) with my 40-something body and how it responds to my wellness practices, even if it means I'm not as lean as I used to be.How about you - do you find yourself getting frustrated with fitness and nutrition as you work towards an "ideal body weight" you think you'd be more happy at?Did your body change after having kids?Do you find yourself dreaming about your leaner physique while despising the one you have today?If so, you're not alone.In this episode, my friend, certified trainer and nutrition coach Megan Dahlman of Strong Mammas chats with me about how to stay motivated in our wellness practices even if our bodies have changed, and encourages us to break up with perfection and lean more into acceptance and grace as we progress with exercise and eating well.What you'll hear:How moms can break through the all-or-nothing and perfectionist mindsets with her self-care habits.How much daily effort is necessary to actually make a difference for your health and create forward progress.The power of committing to just 10 minutes a day to fitness.And I'll be spilling all the beans on my personal challenges with my own mom bod.CONNECT WITH MEGANJumpstart 30!
