In the Midst of the Trees
In the Midst of the Trees
In this episode, I share a bit about what it's been like to be in the midst of the trees (metaphorically speaking). I share about anxiety and learning about myself. I give anxiety the credit it deserves while reminding us all, myself included, that we're not in this alone.  I hope this episode encourages you to look for God in unexpected places.

19: Making it Work | Busyness
19: Making it Work | Busyness
In this episode, I talk through a subject that has become a bit of a hot topic for me: busyness. I recently read John Mark Comer's The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry and it really rocked my world, to say the least. I talk through three elements of busyness that I've taken a critical eye to in my life that I think might be beneficial for you to look at, too. I'm also brutally honest about the ways in which I've not gotten this down yet.  I hope you're encouraged.  Until next time, stay salty

18: Making it Work | Dating
In this episode, I talk through what it's been like to date in the midst of a pandemic, in my late twenties, and in the age of the dating app. I offer stories of what's went wrong and what's been right. By the end, I offer some insight on what I'm finding to be beneficial in my singleness. I hope you are encouraged.  Mentioned Links:  John Mark Comer's The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry Till next time,  stay salty

17: Making it Work | Teaching in a Pandemic
17: Making it Work | Teaching in a Pandemic
I'm back (for now)! I started 2021 with the intention of building better rhythms in my life and getting this podcast up & going is one of those. In this episode, I reflect on where I've been (a wild year) and how I'm seeing myself & life differently these days. Over the next few weeks, I'll share some stories and moments in which I find myself making it work. This week is about finding new rhythms, especially as I navigate teaching during a pandemic.  Another rhythm I am figuring out is writing again. If you're interested in more daily reflections, you can follow along on the Salt & Branch website.

16: Shortness Of Breath
In this epsiode, I hash out a little bit of the anxiety I've been working through recently. I share some of what I'm learning about the various approaches to anxiety and how a more "wide" look at what God might be doing through it could lead to some beautiful revelations.

13: KINDLING | Friend of God | Trust
In this episode, I talk about how building trust with God allows us to grow in a greater friendship with Him. We must be intentional with watching for how He shows up in our lives and answers our prayers. I talk about a "trust snowball" and my own shortcomings and areas of my life where I find it hard to trust Him. Listen until the end for some tangible action steps to help you consider where in your life you can consider trusting God more. www.saltnbranch.com Follow on Instagram @saltnbranch

11: Grief & Goodness
11: Grief & Goodness
Grief can be crippling. It can take over your day and distract you from the goodness around you. It's a choice to look for it. I find myself in the midst of this effort. I share my heart on my mom's passing in this episode. I don't think I've got grief or God figured out in the least, but I do know that if I don't [try to] stay close to Him, I'll miss out on the sweetness He's laid out before me.

3: A Conversation with Stephanie
In this episode, I sit down with a good friend of mine, Stephanie. We've got an interesting backstory (and current story!) to this friendship--like we met in one state years ago and now live in the same city (basically) in a different state halfway across the country. Did I mention how cool the Lord is? And we hit the ground running. We talk about what it's honestly like to be single and dating today, and to try to do it God's way... which makes things pretty interesting.
