WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

“The breath is a pause during the day that I take, it’s where I’m inviting God into that space” -Kirsten Waston  

Today’s guest on The Happy Hour is Kirsten Watson. Kirsten is the author of, Sis Take A Breath: Encouragement for the Woman Who’s Trying to Live and Love Well (but Secretly Just Wants to Take a Nap), and Co-host of, The Why or Why Not with the Watsons Podcast. 

In this episode Kirsten shares about her experience mothering seven kids, being a wife to her husband, and maximizing her God given talents. Not all of you are wives or have children, but I’m sure all of us can relate to the challenges of figuring out a great work life balance. The truth of the matter is, we all can pause and take a breath as we maneuver through our busy lives.  Kirsten gives us some practical ways she slows down to invite God in every area of her life – even during the times she’s watching Veggie Tales with her little ones. Kirsten says having seven children is not always an easy duty, but she loves that she gets to be their mother. Although she loves her children, she makes sure that she prioritizes her relationship with God first, her marriage second, by pausing, going on date nights and getaways, and then parenting her kids thirdly. Stopping and breathing has been one of the best practices for Kirsten and she has found more joy in her life with every pause. 

Press play, take notes, expect to laugh and make sure to grab a copy of Kirstens’ new book linked on the side.
