Simply Joyful Podcast with Kristi Clover | Encouragement for your Faith and Family

The podcast that encourages and inspires you to find simple ways to bring more joy into your day. Whether you are looking for a little encouragement in your faith, family, home, homeschooling (if you do) -- or just life -- then this is the podcast for you! Let's get real and talk about the challenges that we face as women in our day-to-day lives. My guests and I will discuss practical tips and "hacks" about how to find harmony in relationships, order in your home, and how to add a little good ol' fun to your week. My prayer is that this podcast will bless you and add a smile to your face (even if it causes a few new wrinkles) -- and to hopefully help you "Live Simply" and "Be Joyful.”

Emily Ley is the creator of the Simplified Planner® – an agenda for what matters most. Raised in Pensacola, Florida, Emily graduated from the University of West Florida with degrees in English and Public Administration, then went on to become the Executive Director of the city ballet. From there, she worked in nonprofit management and public relations before launching her brand in 2008. Following the success found at its online home — EmilyLey.com, Emily Ley quickly grew to be carried in over 750 retail outlets across the United States and around the world. In late 2016, however, Emily’s team decided to simplify and get back to what they loved most: creating community around their online shop – decreasing their retail partners from 750 to 5. Emily has been featured in ForbesFamily Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, Glamour, Good Housekeeping, and HGTV.com. She has been recognized with numerous awards, including Best New Product at the National Stationery Show as well as Top 10 Designers to Watch by Stationery Trends Magazine. Emily is the author of Grace, Not perfection: Embracing Simplicity, Chasing Joy, and released A Simplified Life: Tactical Tools for Intentional Living, in November 2017. It appeared on USA Today and The Washington Post’s list of best-sellers. Now as an author, businesswoman, wife, and mama to three, Emily enjoys Friday pizza parties on the living room floor, searching for the world’s best queso with her husband, Bryan, and making memories to savor with her toddler twins (Caroline + Tyler) and first-grader (Brady).

Episode #043 with Alexandra Kuykendall
Contentment at Christmas: Letting Go of Our Holiday Expectations

 

 

Merry Christmas!

A special thanks to our wonderful sponsor this month: PeachDish 

PeachDish is generously hosting a fun giveaway for us over the next two weeks:

4 Holiday Feast Kits with Brunch Casseroles!

**Sign up for this week’s giveaway HERE!**

 

Okay! Now onto this week's encouraging episode!

Today is all things Christmas! Alexandra Kuykendall is my guest on the show today and we're going to be talking a lot about Christmas —  including an experiment that she did in her home last Christmas. It was really interesting! She wrote a book all about it called Loving My Actual Christmas. Can I hear a little”Amen” out there? Too many times we look on social media and we start thinking, "Oh I wish we did this or that," when we really need to slow down and just enjoy this season for what it is. Even if you don't get to all the traditions that you want to, take time to savor this Christmas! I want to help you to give yourself permission this season to slow down. To pick one or two things, with your family, and enjoy this Christmas fully!

I can't wait for you to hear this episode with Alexandra—and Merry Christmas!

Episode #042 with Kim Fredrickson
Parenting with Compassion — & Leaving a Legacy

 

 

Merry Christmas!...

...& a special thanks to our wonderful sponsor this month: PeachDish 

PeachDish is generously hosting a fun giveaway for us over the next two weeks:

4 Holiday Feast Kits with Brunch Casseroles!

**Sign up for this week’s giveaway HERE!**

 

Okay! Now onto this week's encouraging episode!

Today’s episode is extra special to me. I got to know Kim Fredrickson many years ago. Kim is one of the licensed therapists who taught a marriage class at our church in northern California. Steve and I were newly married at the time and learned so much from her. She was a real hero to me all those years ago. More recently, Kim and I reconnected through our literary agency on Facebook. 

Kim’s new bookGive Your Kids a Break, has an interesting backstory. Most people write books to share with an unknown audience. Kim began writing this intentionally for her children and for her future grandchildren. It is the outpouring of all her 30+ years as a marriage and family therapist and her own parenting experiences — all written to pass on her wisdom and passion for building family unity when she is no longer around to do so herself.

We all know our time on this earth is limited, however, Kim has an even greater sense of urgency after being diagnosed with a terminal lung disease. I’ll let her share more of that story on the show.

This is a powerful episode! We’re going to talk about parenting and leaving a legacy. We’re going to laugh and cry. Please don’t miss this one. In fact, I ask that you share this episode with as many other families as you can. I also want to ask you to pray for a miracle for Kim! There is power in prayer. God is a God who can heal…even the impossible.

So, what would you do if you were told you only had a few years to live? What kind of legacy would you try to leave behind for your family? Listen in and hear Kim’s perspective. I know that you are going to be so blessed by her words of wisdom.

Kim Fredrickson is a licensed marriage and family therapist of thirty-plus years. She loves to teach others about the power of self-compassion from a faith perspective. She is the author of Give Yourself a Break: Turning Your Inner Critic into a Compassionate Friend and Give Your Kids a Break: Parenting with Compassion for You and Your Children. She recently retired from her counseling practice when diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, a terminal lung disease that developed as a rare complication from the chemotherapy and radiation she received for breast cancer.

After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, she decided to write this book as a way to have a positive influence in the lives of her adult children and their future grandchildren. Kim wanted to help them with the challenges of parenting when the time came. She knew she wouldn’t be around to hold her grandbabies and help her children raise them in person. Originally it was only going to be for them. As Kim wrote, she thought others might benefit as well, so decided to self-publish it.

Kim has been married to her husband, Dave for thirty-nine years and they have two grown children.

Our guest today is none other than Ainsley Earhardt. I've been following Ainsley's career for a while now. She's a journalist and the co-host of Fox and Friends on the National Fox News Network. I remember watching Ainsley years ago when she was still very new to Fox News. One thing that I always remembered and that stood out to me was that she was so genuine. I am so thrilled to have her on the podcast today! She has quite a God-story that I cannot wait for you to hear.

Ainsley shares the story about her journey into motherhood. The majority of my listeners are moms and everyone will probably agree that motherhood is not always easy. But many of us tend to forget that the journey into motherhood can be equally as difficult.

I can't wait for you to listen in to my conversation with Ainsley and hear the story behind her new book Through Your Eyes

… Okay! Now onto this week's encouraging episode!

I am ridiculously excited about today's guest, Nichole Nordeman! I have been a huge fan of Nichole for as long as she has been making music. She is a Christian recording artist, songwriter, has had several number one and top ten singles — and she's won nine Dove awards!

Nichole's talent at songwriting has long impressed me. Her lyrics always touch my heart in a special way. It makes sense that her new book, Slow Down, is so wonderfully written. Now, if only the audio version was of her singing it. Ha!

Her book is filled with real-life motherhood. I love the stories she shares within the pages and the perspective she has now that her kids are a bit older. One interesting thing she did was to have guests write sweet, little blurbs about motherhood. I think I’m going to make this book my new baby shower gift for new moms. It’s so great.

It was fun to chat about her background, how she got started, and what’s happening in her life today. Such a special episode to get to record! I had so much fun getting to know Nichole.

I'm really excited for you guys to listen in to my conversation with Nichole!

… Okay! Now onto this week's encouraging episode!

I always love the opportunity to talk with Heidi St. John. She is so encouraging and inspirational...and downright funny! She has a knack for helping moms to see that the messiness of motherhood is NORMAL! We're not alone. Sometimes we forget to find the humor in the hard days.

I'm really excited about Heidi's new book, Becoming Mom Strong: How to Fight with All That's in You for Your Family and Your Faith! This book is not only laced with her humor and wit, but the stories she shares are so real. I laughed my way through this book—because it's real life. Mom life is often filled with so many hilarious moments. (If you can't laugh at it, you'll just end up crying in the corner).

It is crazy to think about what our kids are going up against these days in this culture. Heidi’s new book is a challenge to moms to rise up and be strong their faith — to be strong in their example to their kids and embrace motherhood.

I can't wait to have you listen in to my conversation with Heidi.

Many of you probably know Anne Bogel from her very popular blog Modern Mrs. Darcy. She's also the host of the podcast What Should I Read Next?, but her new book, Reading People, literally changed everything for me. I love this book. I've read several sections of her book several times since doing this episode. It really helped me understand myself better — and my kids! It unlocked the mystery of why we are the way we are.

I was blown away by her book. All of the personality tests out there have always confused me. Anne's book really dumbed it down for me. Ha! It’s a very simplistic and straightforward way of looking at personality types. She does a great job of explaining all the types and why it's important for you to understand these aspects of yourself and other people. She also goes into detail on how to take this knowledge and interact with others.

I'm so excited for you to listen in with my conversation with Anne! She is amazing.

If you have been on any social media at any point, you've probably seen the viral video on Facebook Live of her trying on a Chewbacca mask. Her laughter was contagious, and it took the world by storm.

Candace's video is so great because it's a mom who was having a fun little moment and laughs hysterically. Have you ever had one of those moments where you just can't stop yourself from laughing? What's fun is she has a new book out called Laugh it Up. There is so much more to Candace than just a Chewbacca mask. She is the real deal and such a joy. Her book is all about embracing freedom and experiencing defiant joy.

I can't wait to have you listen in to my conversation with Candace.

Today you’re in for a treat. We’re going to be chatting with the creators of Shepherd on the Search—Josh and Lindsey Helms! We talk all about changing up some Christmas traditions to bring in more of our faith.

Shepherd on the Search is an alternative to the Elf on the Shelf. It’s perfect for helping your child connect with the real meaning of Christmas. What’s super fun about this week’s episode is that we are chatting with the creators, and they get to share all the fun ways that they have used their cute little Shepherd over the years.

What I love about the Helms’ story is they were just two young parents that were looking for a way to teach their kids about Christ and Christmas and they developed this cool product.

It was so much fun to get to virtually meet Josh and Lindsey and I know that you are just going to love them and this episode!

Standing Firm in Your Faith Despite Opposition

… Okay! Now onto this week's encouraging episode!

I’m super excited to introduce my special guest today—Chelsea Crockett. You may not be familiar with Chelsea Crockett, but your daughter may be! She is a YouTube superstar. She has over 1.5 million fans on YouTube. That is spectacular, and she is a big-time Christian influencer. I am so excited about her new book, Your Own Beautiful. In fact, Sadie Robertson, who has a line at Dayspring (our November to Remember sponsor), wrote the forward!

Chelsea was such a delight to talk to! Talk about a new generation of Christian women standing up for their faith! I don’t know if you are familiar with social media, but YouTube does not have great filters, and there are horrible comments that come up. Chelsea has done a remarkable job dealing with opposition as she shares her faith very publically on YouTube. We get into that more in the podcast.

We’ve had guests on the show in the past who have talked about raising strong men, but I wanted to make sure we also talk about raising strong women. I know you are going to enjoy her fresh perspective.

Your Own Beautiful is a book that if you have a young woman in your life—daughter, niece, or even just a close friend's daughter—you’ll want to get it in their hands. It is such a great encouragement for them, and Chelsea is a great role model! I was even encouraged by the book! I hope you will check it out!

It was so much fun chatting with Chelsea—I hope you'll share this episode with your friends who are raising daughters! I hope you (and they) will be so encouraged!

 

ON A SIMPLY JOYFUL NOTE…

Chelsea says she loves to make lists. She makes a list every day, and then she prioritizes her list. She also uses Siri on her iPhone for reminders. Be sure to listen in to hear more on this.

The Balance Between Pursuing Holiness and Resting in Grace

… Okay! Now onto this week's encouraging episode!

I’m super excited to have Jess Connolly on the show this week! She has a new book out, Dance Stand Run, but you may know her from her last great book that she co-authored called Wild and Free. When I first heard the title of Jess's new book, I wasn’t sure what to expect — but, WOW! was I was blown away! She talks about the balance of pursuing holiness and resting in grace. It is such an important message for us today. It’s so easy to not give ourselves enough grace when we mess up. Yet, on the flip side, we can also almost abuse grace and not learn (and change) from our mistakes. Jess so beautifully encourages us on how to dance in the grace that we’ve been given, how to stand in our holiness, and how to run on the mission that God calls us too.

 

I was just so thrilled to talk to Jess about her new book, and I cannot wait for you to listen in. I hope you will be so encouraged!

 

ON A SIMPLY JOYFUL NOTE…

Jess says she's a big believer in creating quiet in her life. Be sure to listen in to hear more on this.
