Rest Stop: Psalm 13 & 14

January 7, 2020
The Road Home to You

Listen to today’s Psalm here

The holidays are over. The new year looms ahead.

With your goals and resolutions set, are you already finding yourself falling off the bandwagon? Are the post-holiday blues still keeping you in a fog of sadness and adrenaline let down?

Let’s take a minute to stop, take a deep breath and hear what the psalmist, David, has to say to God. Do you ear your own heart’s cry? Call upon the Lord and he will hear you. Cry out to him, and he will be your guide.

Remember, The Road Home to You is going through some construction work right now so we’ll be staying in the Psalms for the next month or so. There is work happening behind the scenes and we are excited to bring you new content with new guests. Please keep downloading the weekly Psalms.

Lessons on the Road to Waimea Canyon (transcription)

The Road Home to You

Last October, in 2018, we had the joy of traveling to Kauai, Hawaii. Kauai is called The Garden Isle and for good reason. There isn’t a vista that isn’t covered in lush trees, tropical plants, and blossoming botanicals. Everywhere you turn, you are met with an incredible slice of creation.

We didn’t come by this trip by the usual means. We hadn’t been planning it for years, pinching our pennies and squirreling away vacation time. Rather, Matt’s parents took us as their guests with airline miles they’d acquired. We shared a 1-bedroom condo with a fold-out couch and called ourselves blessed.

When we came home, after the sunburns had begun to heal but the glow of the Hawaiian sun was still lingering, we sat down in the recording studio with a bowl of fresh pineapple and a couple of mimosas and talked about our time in the Aloha State.

Show Notes: “Holiday Survival Guide”

November 20, 2018
The Road Home to You

Let’s face it: as much as people love watching holiday Hallmark movies, they leave us longing for more in our own lives. More family. More laughter. More kisses under the mistletoe and more snow on the ground.

The Holiday Survival Guide

Meanwhile, our reality often looks quite a bit duller when compared to this idealized version we see on our screens. In real life, we have dirty dishes stacked up high, kids screaming in the background, someone passed out on the couch due to overindulgence of one sort or another. All we really want to do is lock ourselves in the bathroom and have a good cry.

Because the holidays are hard. Sometimes, they’re really hard.

Whatever we hope for during this season seldom comes to fruition. Instead, we end up stressed out and feeling empty and dissatisfied, or worse, completely hopeless.

Join us this week as Matt and I share some of our thoughts for self-care during the holidays that might bring you a new sense of peace and joy.

In this episode, we talk about being mindful of what we deserve vs. what we’ve been given, taking our desires and cares to God, and practical ideas for relieving stressful or awkward situations. We also talk about practicing kindness towards others as well as ourselves.
