Simply Joyful Podcast: Life Creative Starts at Home with Wendy Speake

Simply Joyful Podcast: Life Creative Starts at Home with Wendy Speake April 20, 2017

When we become moms it often feels like we lose part of our creative selves. The things we used to enjoy doing become memories. It’s easy to start viewing motherhood as a choice that voids all the other things we thought we’d do in life. However, God can use motherhood to refine our gifts and talents and use them right where we are — at home. Now, by “at home” I’m not just talking to stay-at-home moms. I’m talking to all moms.Life Creative Starts at Home with Wendy Speake

God did not make a mistake when He gave you all your incredible creativity and unique gifting. You can still use them. Sometimes it just looks a bit different than we first thought it would look.

On a “Simply” & “Joyful” side note…

This whole podcast talks about how to find joy using the creativity that God gives us. Our conversation was so rich and filled with goodness, tips for finding more joy, and how to simplify our big dreams and use our gifting right where God has us — that we never got to an “official” Simply Joyful moment at the end. So, don’t miss this whole episode! It’s all in there!
