This episode is directly from Get Planty Course in the Growth Mindset module.
Here is an excerpt: "When we come into contact with great art, we don’t say, “Look at what this piece of art made!” That would be ridiculous. Even saying that sentence out loud, it doesn’t make sense.
Instead, we say, “Who made this incredible painting? I bet she worked so hard to create it. It’s beautiful!.” Then we look at it. We soak it up. We let that piece of art sink in, and we start to feel all the emotions that come flooding to the front of our minds. Emotions, memories, thoughts-- all inspired by a beautiful piece of art thoughtfully and intentionally made.
That need to create and experience creation in all forms is a trait we get from our Father: paintings that evoke emotion, a photograph that takes our breath away, a song that inspires us, a meal that brings us joy and comfort, a home that creates a safe space for our bodies and hearts to grow. Art is important, and crediting the artist is far more important than simply experiencing a work of art and moving on."

Bringing your houseplants indoors when the weather gets colder is really important and there are a few steps you should be doing to ensure that your beloved houseplants stay healthy.
How to prepare your home
How to prevent and fight houseplant pests
How to acclimate your houseplants indoors
What behavior to expect from your houseplant
Before I dive into how to acclimate your houseplant indoors after summer I have something SO exciting to share with you! On the day of this recording (September 7th, 2019) I have JUST opened the doors to a three-day houseplant challenge to help you better understand your houseplant and create a routine that ACTUALLY works for both you! (And by both I mean you and your houseplant!)
The challenge begins on September 23rd, but you can join now! When you do you’ll get immediate access to the closed challenge Facebook group, a bonus training before the challenge begins, and some other great tips and resources to help you better understand your houseplants - and therefore enjoy them SO much more!
And guess what. It’s 100% free!
You can join the challenge HERE.
There will be replays available, bonus content, AND even a bonus day with a live repotting and Q&A session!
If you are catching this after the challenge ends (October 4th, 2019) I plan on making this challenge into an evergreen challenge (and keeping it FREE!) so you can still learn all about how to better understand your houseplant and create a houseplant care routine that you actually enjoy AND works for both of you! (i.e. keeps your houseplants alive)
Which is why I have cleverly titled the challenge: Stop Killing Your Houseplants Challenge!
Once you enroll can you do me a HUGE favor? I am trying to reach a really big goal of getting 500 members in the free challenge. Can you help me spread the word and invite your friends? I would be so grateful! You guys have been so supportive and I know if we work together we can build and nurture a houseplant community dedicated to growing well! I can’t wait!
How to transition your houseplants back indoors:
The reason your houseplant needs to be acclimated (which simply means to become accustomed to a new climate or to new conditions) is because the growing conditions within your home are drastically different than the growing conditions outdoors. The biggest difference is in the amount of light your plant will receive.

Today we are talking photosynthesis! Photosynthesis is the process by which houseplants create their own food. Which is pretty incredible, right!? Outdoors, in their native habitat, they grow in such a way that they can utilize the resources around them to actually feed themselves! Indoors WE are responsible for facilitating a plant in doing this well.
There are three MAIN elements responsible for photosynthesis. Carbon dioxide, water, and light. All three so important and all three very misunderstood by most houseplant collectors. We’re gonna break down each element a little deeper unpacking WHY the plant needs it, how the plant collects it, and what we can do as houseplant collectors to facilitate the plant in doing so. Then we’ll dive into some personal application we can learn from studying, science, and what God has to teach us today through the science of how plants grow.
It’s gonna be a good one!

Watering episode part 1
Depression feels a lot like you’re doing life underwater when everyone else is on land. It is hard to breathe down here, my mind feels so weak, and it’s far to easy to believe lies that would otherwise feel ridiculous. This is a battle I have been fighting for years and in the last few years I have come to terms with this and FINALLY took the steps to get diagnosed and begin healing from depression and severe anxiety.
I am not a doctor and STRONGLY recommend that you seek medical advice in this topic. My goal for you in hearing this episode is to hear my own growth journey, see the things that I am doing (some of which are VERY simple with a BIG impact) to pursue growing WELL in a hard season of depression and severe anxiety.
I am finally “coming up for air” so to speak and I am seeing some beautiful healing come after years of hurting. I am deeply, deeply grateful. I feel safe and happy and very comfortable in sharing these harder topics right now. So PLEASE ask me questions if you have any via email at email@example.com
