Her Renewed Strength | Time Management, Productivity, Overwhelm, Schedules, Time Blocking

Welcome to the Go-To podcast for anxious, overwhelmed Christian women who are ready to stop rushing through life and start having intentional time with God and loved ones. Here you’ll find time management tips, Christ centered productivity strategies and mindset coaching to help you get things done with less stress, enjoy peace and rest, and shift your perspective from the temporal to the eternal. You’re trying to get everything done and you’re sacrificing your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health in the process, including... * rushing through your quiet time with God * constantly worrying about all the things on your to-do list * sacrificing time for health and fitness * struggling with negative thoughts or attitudes * wanting to do all the things * feeling like you just aren’t where you want to be * battling guilt when setting boundaries * prioritizing everything and everyone else… Do you ever catch yourself saying, ”I don’t have time for [fill in the blank]...” Do you wish you could stop.... - getting anxious thoughts or feelings of overwhelm when you think of your to-do list? - worrying about getting everything done each day? - feeling guilty for not sticking to the plan you made? - putting Jesus on the back-burner when life gets busy? Very good...because that’s not what the Lord created you to do or how He intended you to live! Hey, I’m Erika, your Jesus-loving Puerto Rican life coach! For over 10 years, I struggled with anxiety and overwhelm because I was always “doing too much” and so consumed with getting it all done. I sacrificed time with the Lord, sleep and my sanity in an effort to do all the things. As a result, my mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health suffered. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with cancer at 28 that I realized I couldn’t live this way any more. I needed to get serious about doing things God’s way. It was through prioritizing time in HIS WORD that I was able to develop a mindset rooted in biblical truth, create systems and incorporate routines that led me out of the living hell I was in. Want to know how I put an end to the vicious cycle I was in? Ready to find out how I put Jesus first in my daily life? On this show, I’ll show you how to be more intentional, reduce the overwhelm and stress, and enjoy peace and rest while still getting things done by... - implementing time management solutions that help you prioritize properly and execute on your plans... - incorporating productivity strategies that are rooted in God’s Word... - shifting your perspective from the temporal to the eternal… I can’t wait to help you experience mental clarity and have more peace, so you can have intentional time for what matters most!

There’s this phrase that I was notorious for using when I was asked if I followed through on something I said I was going to do or wanted to do…it went something like, “I tried, but I just don’t have enough time…” This happened a lot when I was younger, and today I’m going to share the scenarios I used it the most. I’m also going to explain what this phrase actually means as it pertains to your time management.

In today's episode, I'm throwing it back to 2021, when I first shared these three Proverbs! Since then, I've been even more aware of how easy it can be to sacrifice my wellness or even my walk with the Lord because of my decision to remain busy. Well, if that's you, these passages are FOR YOU!


You don't have to be so busy that you sacrifice what matters most. 

You don't have to compromise on your priorities for the sake of gettin...

Hey sis! Today, I'm taking a little break from all the productivity & time management talk because the Lord put something on my heart that I just NEEDED to share.


I don't know about you, but seasons of doubt, discouragement and disappointment are rough. Today, I share about my own experiences in this current season, which appear to be similar to what many of you are going through, too. I pray this encourages you today.

Hey hey! Happy Tuesday, sis! I hope you are having a fabulous day at the time you’re tuning in.

Hey you! If you’re anything like I used to be, you’ve caught yourself saying, “I don’t know where my time goes.” Time management and productivity aren't taught in school, so if you're struggling with either, don't feel bad! Whether you’re always running late to things or just trying to get caught up on your long to-do list, you may still find yourself falling behind and pressed for time. If you want to make that stop, once and for ...

If your relationship with the Lord takes a hit when you’re busy, listen up. I’m guilty of putting Jesus on the back burner when life gets hectic. Trust me, I’m not perfect! That’s the reason I know how harmful of a habit it is.

The Holy Spirit has prompted me to speak about rest. As believers, we can be tempted to believe that rest is optional, especially when things become busy. We worry about taking time to rest. We worry about slowing down. We worry about taking that tactical pause because we worry about all the things we still have to do. So, today, I want to speak to the root of your issue and help you shift your perspective. I want you to walk in fr...

What up, sis! I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but your to-do list is actually NOT contributing to improving your time management or productivity. Instead, it’s making you anxious and contributing to the overwhelm. In this episode, I’ll share WHY that’s the case, and I’ll give you a mindset reframe to help you think about how to remedy this situation.

Welcome back! I'm talking about mindset today because you cannot improve in time management or productivity if you don't first shift your mindset. Trust me, if this wasn't necessary, I wouldn't bother. I'm the FIRST person to say, "just give me the step-by-step." HOWEVER, it's not all about WHAT you're doing... it's more about HOW YOU'RE THINKING about what you're doing. 


The truth is, you can’t see sustainable change or improvem...

Happy New Year! Have you ever gone through something and, when you look back at it, you’re like, “wow, that was hard.” Yep, that was 2023… for A LOT of us!
