  • 111. Let's redefine "luxury,"... grandmom had it right

    This mini episode of the Simple Doesn't Mean Easy podcast shares the backstory of Lula, my grandmom, and how her love for dandelions embodies the concept of finding joy in simple things.


    Lula grew up in rural West Virginia and had a deep appreciation for the natural world.


    * Finding joy in simple things can bring a sense of fulfillment and contentment.

    * Appreciating the natural world and its beauty can enrich our lives.

    * Contrasting perspectives on simplicity and cultivation can coexist and influence our own choices.

    * Valuing hard work and the results it brings can shape our definition of luxury.

    * Recognizing the value of seemingly insignificant things can have a positive impact on our lives.

  • 110. Six things I've learned as an accidental homesteader

    In this episode, I'm dishing out the insider details... I'm sharing six things I've learned as an accidental homesteader over the past 10 years.


    The article this episode is based on: https://soulyrested.com/2015/11/30/following-directions-part-1/


    A Homestead Checklist for every season: https://soulyrested.com/2020/08/23/a-homestead-checklist-for-every-season/


    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.

    How does the theory that "Simple Doesn't Mean Easy" apply to our faith?


    Can we find "GOOD" in the middle of "HARD"?


    For our 100th episode we're doing something a little different. I'm sitting down with a real-life very special friend to talk about a topic that is close to my heart (I share some very personal insights about WHY this is an important topic for me near the end).


    Today we're chatting with Nate Pickowicz, the author of 'The Kindness of God,' and over a dozen other books.


    We discuss:


    - God's kindness & how it can be seen in blessings

    - God's kindness & how it can be seen in the midst of suffering

    - Personal stories and experiences that have highlighted God's kindness for both of us

    - The importance of recognizing and appreciating God's kindness in all aspects of life

  • Kombucha & how to sip your way to a healthy gut (S7 E6)

    Summary

    In this episode, Michelle discusses the importance of gut health and the origins of kombucha.

    She explains how to choose the right tea for brewing kombucha and the tools needed for the process.

    Michelle also covers the second fermentation and flavoring options for kombucha.

    She addresses making kombucha without cane sugar and provides tips for growing a scoby and using overripe kombucha.

    The episode concludes with information about a giveaway and a reminder to check out Kombucha Academy.

    Takeaways

    • Kombucha is a fermented drink that can improve gut health and provide healthful probiotics.
    • Choosing the right tea and sugar is important for brewing kombucha.
    • The second fermentation allows for flavoring options and experimentation.
