In today’s chapter of My Year of Saying NO I talk about making space in your calendar between appointments, and making space just to be, just to stop and refresh yourself.
Today’s talk with Steve comes with a trigger warning. Steve talks about the occult (not in any detail at all) and about OCD. He also shares with us his journey of letting go of false treasures and idols in his life and how he has learned to put God first.
Beth’s interview (Steve’s wife) is episode 61.
WYSOCS is the West Yorkshire School of Christian Studies, now thinkfaith.net
Two chapters of My Year of Saying NO today: Only do what you love? and Do you really enjoy this? They are two sides of a coin, and different takes on the normal ‘self love’ philosophy.
The mother’s day high tea story I mention is read in Episode 60 of A Quiet Life.
BTW This Friday marks the 2nd anniversary of the release of my first novel Deadly Misconduct. You can find out more about it at www.rjamos.com and sign up to my newsletter there too 🙂
Today’s interview with Alison was recorded in the summer, you’ll hear us reference the bushfires like we thought that would be the biggest thing happening this year! Alison talks about what church means to her, and I think that her definition of church is still useful, even in these strange times when we’re all meeting online.
Oh the Deep Deep Love of Jesus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLTu1xv2-Us (I couldn’t go past the epic version).
Today is chapter 7 of My Year of Saying NO. I talk about rewarding myself for changing my habits so that I can start to find a new way of doing things.
In the introduction I let you know just how I’m doing right now, and why this podcast is coming out on a Thursday instead of a Wednesday. Spoiler – I’m not the energiser bunny right now.
Beth and I talk about community, about life working from home with three children, about coping with difficult things, about family. Beth is a copywriter, and we discuss how to be a Christian witness while writing advertising copy.
Beth reminds us that God feels closest when we’re at the end of our own resources. When we are depending on him.
I talk about my interview with Megan, which was episode 29. I’m still working on my book about aliens in Cygnet, but when it’s finished you’ll find it on rjamos.com.
Psalm 46:10a Be still and know that I am God;
2 Corinthians 12:9a But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
