Description

The Well-Tended Life Podcast is all about intentional living, that’s inspired by my great-great-grandmother’s classic book “The Secret Garden”. A Well-Tended Life is not a set it and forget it life, nor is it a perfect life. It is worked on every day, in the sunshine and through the storms. And the truth is, what worked in our life-gardens last season, may not work in the next. That’s why here at The Well-Tended Life Podcast, we interview people who have grown and bloomed true in a variety of seasons and are willing to share their well-tended wisdom and weed-whacking advice with us!This season we are going to talk about: Rest, Fear, Addiction, Busyness, Growth, grief, Friendship, Relationships, Time Management, Self Care, Pivots, Expectations, Wandering, Gratitude, Overcoming, Hard Work, Goals/Intentions, Relationships, Health, Fitness, Change, Secrets, Letting Go, and so much More! So, meet me back here each week and we will dig in together to discover what’s keeping you locked up tighter than The Secret Garden and unearth the tools that will keep you growing and blooming through every season.“Where you tend a rose…a thistle cannot grow.” - The Secret Garden
