Page of Our Lives - S2 E12 - InstaJoy: Put Your Praise On
Today we wrap up our Christmas series on InstaJoy! All month we’ve shared four key ingredients we need to prepare our hearts to receive the joy that God has for us. We’ve learned to pause, pray, and prepare…and today we’re going to talk about the last ingredient – the importance of praise. Praise is like the steam valve on the instant pot. When the pressure of life builds and builds, praise is what helps us release those burdens and open our hearts to receive God’s joy. Isaiah 61:3 says to put on a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness. So, let’s experience the fullness of joy and talk about the power of praise on this episode of The Page of Our Lives. ......

Page of Our Lives - S2 E11 - InstaJoy: Take Time to Prepare
We’re continuing our Christmas series on InstaJoy! The name for this series comes from one of our favorite Kitchen tools - the instant pot! Each week we’re unpacking a different ingredient to help prepare our hearts to receive the InstaJoy that God has for us. Preparing is an important part in cooking in your instant pot, and it’s important in experiencing joy. We can’t just show up, throw our ingredients in the instant pot and expect it to come out perfectly each time. We need to read the recipe, prepare the ingredients and then cook in the proper order. Joy is the same. If we don’t spend time preparing our hearts to receive joy, we might just miss it. .....

Page of Our Lives - S2 E10 - InstaJoy: The Power of Prayer
We’re continuing our Christmas series on InstaJoy! The name for this series comes from one of our favorite Kitchen tools - the instant pot! Each week we’re unpacking a different ingredient to help prepare our hearts to receive the InstaJoy that God has for us. One of the ways we experience God's joy is through prayer. Prayer reminds us of God’s presence in our lives. Prayer reminds us that God cares for us and wants us to bring our concerns and worries to him. Prayer helps us release burdens that weigh us down so that our hearts can receive the joy God has for us. At the end of today’s episode, we have a little challenge for you…a way for you to being practicing some of the InstaJoy ingredients we’ve been talking about this month. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to try it out and then let us know what you think. .....

Page of Our Lives - S2E9 - InstaJoy: How to cook up a joyful Christmas
We love using an instant pot to cut down cooking time and get dinner on the table faster. But when it comes to finding joy, we've learned you can't shortcut your way to experiencing it. Lasting joy takes four very specific ingredients that together add up to one joyful life in Christ. To help prepare your heart to receive what God has for you this Christmas, we're opening up the cookbook and sharing our recipe for InstaJoy all month on the Page of Our Lives. Today's episode focuses on ingredient number one: the importance of making time to pause in the midst of a very busy season.  For more information and show notes visit www.pageofourlivespodcast.com.

Page of Our Lives - S2E5 - How Gratitude Impacts Your Body, Mind & Spirit
We are excited to kick off a new month on the Page of Our Lives. All month long we will be talking about gratitude! From the impact it has on our physical bodies to the way it lowers anxiety, to hearing stories of people who are living lives through a lens of gratitude - we'll cover gratitude from all the angles.   On today's show, we're looking at the impact gratitude has on our body, mind and spirit. It's pretty remarkable all the ways having an attitude of gratitude can positively impact you. It helps fight depression, helps you accomplish tasks, it even helps you make friends!  We are also launching our November Gratitude Challenge! All month long we're encouraging our listeners to write down three things they're grateful for each day. We will share our lists throughout the month and we also want you to share them with us!

Page of Our Lives - S2E4 - "I can't forgive them."
On today’s show we wrap up our conversation on Lies We Believe with the lie: “I can’t forgive them.” When we harbor unforgiveness toward someone, it can leave us broken and bitter. On this episode, we explore why we struggle to forgive and how this lie keeps us from experiencing true freedom. Many of us struggle with this lie. But the truth is, forgiveness is possible. If you struggle to forgive others, our prayer is that today’s show helps you take a small step toward releasing the hurt and bitterness in your heart.

Page of Our Lives - S2E3 - "It all depends on me."
All month long we're talking about Lies We Believe and today’s show is about the lie "It all depends on me." When we buy into this lie, it often leaves us gripping tight to whatever we can. We try to control outcomes and people, and keep all the plates spinning. We are left feeling overworked, overused and overlooked.  We’re going to dig into why we believe that it all depends on us and more importantly, how do we begin to let go of the control and surrender to a God who never asked us to do it all in the first place.

Page of Our Lives - S2E2 - "This will never change."
We are talking about Lies We Believe all month long, and today’s show is about the lie "This will never change." Have you ever been in a season where you felt that way? Maybe it was with a relationship, your health or your job. When it seems like things will never change, we can feel stuck, hopeless and sometimes even abandoned. We examine why we feel like things will never change and what we do to get back to a place of believing we have a future and a hope. Show Notes and more available at www.pageofourlivespodcast.com.

Page of Our Lives - Ep. 17 - Soul Care for Weary Parents
We know parenting is not for the weak. It takes our whole physical, mental, spiritual and emotional selves to parent well, not to mention having eyes in the back of our heads. But what are we to do when we are worn out from parenting?    On today’s show, we talk with Kelli Wild, a family therapist who is passionate about helping weary moms and dads find rest for their souls. As Kelli puts it, “Parental burnout is a real thing. And when it sets in, it can affect the whole family.”    As parents, we can’t afford to ignore our needs forever. That’s why today’s show is so important.   For more information about Kelli, visit http://www.kelliwild.com   Show notes and more available at http://www.pageofourlivespodcast.com

Page of Our Lives - Ep. 13 - How to Keep Going When You Wake Up to Crap
Today we wrap up our series on pursuing our dreams by asking ourselves - as people who are working hard to make dreams a reality, what do we do when we wake up to crap? I apologize if you’re somebody who doesn’t like that word, but let’s be honest...sometimes it feels like it keeps dropping no matter how hard we’re working to keep life cleaned up and moving forward. We had started our conversation off air and soon realized it might be something you’d want to hear, so we hit record a few minutes into our discussion. But don’t worry...we saved the good, the bad and the stinky for you. If you keep waking up to crap, We hope that this page from our lives might be the encouragement you need to scoop it up and keep going.
