Because of the pandemic, his semester break had been extended an additional two weeks. As a family, we celebrated the…

JOY – Jesus, Others, You

By Missy Eversole /
,

Most of us are familiar with the term JOY – Jesus, Others, You. In our Christian circles, we refer to this as putting Jesus first, then others, then ourselves. It’s a simple word that is relatively hard to follow through doing. Most of us, myself included, tend to put ourselves and others before Jesus. This…

By Missy Eversole /

At the end of July, social media was in an uproar over schools across the country reopening. People who were so supportive of teachers when schools unexpectedly closed were now judging them for wanting to get back into the classroom. The judgment continued on to the parents for wanting to send their children back to…

Watching My Son Walk into School One Last Time

By Missy Eversole /

Every school day, I have watched my children head into school. Whether it was dropping them off at the front door, or watching them from the front porch as they drove away in their vehicles, I have never missed seeing Grant and Connor leave for school. College was no exception. One Week Ago Last Tuesday,…

Three Ways the Quarantine Prepared Me For My Son Leaving for College

By Missy Eversole /

One week. Just one week until we move our son into his dorm at Baylor University. Waco is a 14-hour drive or 2 1/2- 3 hours by flight (depending on where you fly into.) I will never forget the conversation that our son and I had when we were touring the campus during Spring Break…

Trusting Jesus While Preparing to Move My Son to College in Another State

By Missy Eversole /

Three weeks from today, the dynamics in our house will change. There will be a seat empty at the kitchen table. There will be only one child to get out the door for school. The house will be a little quieter without that infectious laugh that I have heard throughout the years. And if I…

Five Ways to Quiet Your Heart

By Missy Eversole /

Five Ways to Quiet Your Heart No one cried out of frustration. No one whined because they didn’t get to what they wanted to do. No one argued with one another. No one asked the dreaded question, “Are we there yet?” No one got mad at her family because they were getting on her last…

Do you dream of a pre-social media world?
 
I think there was a lot less comparison in the days before everyone carried around a phone and had social media accounts to see what everyone was doing. 📱 
 
Keeping up with the Joneses can be defeating, even more so when you are seeing their every move. Correction, their every FILTERED move. You can start to feel like your efforts don’t measure up. 
 
This week’s podcast guest on the Bold Faith Now Podcast is Patty LaRoche. She shares moving stories from her years as a high school teacher, illustrating how social media has affected teenagers' self-esteem. 💕

Where do you source your worth? 🤔 
 
Romans 12:2 tells us, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind...”
 
We are called not to copy the thought patterns of this world, yet sometimes, that is tempting. When movies, diet ads, influencers, and other sources tell us that we gain more worth if we do XY and Z, we can start to believe it.
 
If only I had that body.
If only I had that wardrobe.
If only I had that boyfriend or husband.
If only I had that salary.
 
If only ….
 
The key? 👇 

We find it in the second part of Romans 12:2: “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” This transformation occurs when we spend time in the truth of God’s Word and let it wash over our thoughts about our worth.
 
In this week’s podcast episode, I talk with Patty LaRoche about how Christians can confidently live out their faith. Patty emphasizes that it's crucial to recognize that "God is the audience that counts." Our worth is found in HIM, not what we look like or what we have.

Thoughts on minimalism 👇 

It’s a buzzword right now.

And people are trying to minimize stuff in their homes and lives, in order to maximize joy. 

Sometimes we need to sweep out clutter in our minds too, not just our closets and drawers. 👍 

My podcast guest this week is a counselor, speaker and author and  she explains how the pandemic, her community’s lifestyle, and her counseling experiences led her to write about ten virtues that promote a simpler, more grounded life. 

These steps worked for my guest Brenda and I know they will help you, too! 💕
