    the impact of simple lifestyle changes

    the importance of setting kids up for success

    the importance of real, whole foods

    6 Ways to Start Homesteading BEFORE you own land: https://soulyrested.com/2021/02/28/6-ways-to-start-homesteading-before-you-even-own-land/


    We discuss the therapeutic benefits of simple living, the importance of slowing down, the value of documenting experiences, the realization that goals may look different than expected, and the significance of delighting in the journey rather than just the destination.


    I share how I have learned over the years to trust in God's timing, find joy in the process, and relish in the opportunity to help others along the way.


    We discuss how simple living can be therapeutic and life-changing in our modern society of constant stress and how slowing down and focusing on simple joys brings lasting happiness and fulfillment.


    We walk though the fact that documenting experiences is important for personal growth and for sharing with future generations.


    Goals may evolve and look different than expected, but that's okay and often for the better.


    Delighting in the journey and finding joy in the process is more important than reaching the final destination.


    In fact, the process of working towards a dream can be more rewarding than achieving the dream itself.
