Hitting the last third of life can be a shock to the system, but, if we're open and willing to bend with the changes rather than push back against them, we'll find we are stronger than ever even if we can no longer do a headstand. (And yes, I do discuss yoga in this episode as well.)

Doubt and faith would seem mutually exclusive on the surface, but nothing could be further from the truth. Doubt adds depth to our faith lives because it forces us to face the questions and uncertainties that naturally live within us. Join me for a conversation about doubt and how it's not only acceptable but essential for a life of deep and ever-expanding faith.

So often we think being brave means being fearless. Not so. Bravery and courage happen in the face of fear, not in the absence of it. What would you do if you did not let fear stop you? Tune and let's break it down.

As we head into the second half of Lent, it's a good time to take a new look at our promises and practices and see how they might (or might not) be bringing us closer to God. If daily prayer is missing from your Lenten practices, that's the place to start. Join Mary DeTurris Poust for an honest conversation about the challenge of making time for God.

Sometimes our head knows what we need, but our heart just isn't in it. As we move into the first full week of Lent, we'll talk about the challenges of living up to our Lenten promises and sacrifices and the importance of prayer in bringing it all together. Join me for a conversation about packing light for the Lenten journey, being gentle with ourselves, and hanging out with God right where we are any day, any time.

Multitasking is seen as a way to get more done and be more productive, but when we do six things at once, we do none of them well. Fragmented behavior leads to a fragmented mind and a fragmented spirit. In today's episode, we talk about how to ditch multitasking in favor of mindfulness practices that not only make us more productive but more fulfilled. (12 minutes)

Even when we choose to change our lives for the better, that change is likely to bring with it challenges, fear, and maybe even grief. It's all normal. It's all part of transformation. Take it one step at a time, then let go and enjoy the ride, even if it's a little bumpy.
