Simple With Tsh Oxenreider Podcast Episode 192: Fasting, Feasting & Intuitive Eating

In this episode of Simple, I’m sharing about what it means to feast and how moments of fasting can make the feasting more meaningful. I also share 3 of my favorite feasts and some ideas for you to recreate them!

Tsh shares some really great ideas on intuitive eating, which I think goes so well with intermittent fasting. It’s all about balance and a healthy view of food and our bodies. I loved this conversation! Listen in and let me know your thoughts!

You can also read my post on Intermittent Fasting, Feasting, and The Perfect Pesto, which inspired this podcast episode.

Simple With Tsh Oxenreider Podcast Episode 190: Hometown Tourism + Abundant Mindset

I tread lightly with the word “abundant” - it doesn’t meant we’ll all be millionaires, or all of us will get to live out our ultimate dreams. In this episode of Simple, I’m sharing an Annie Dillard quote about “spending it all” that absolutely slayed me and inspired me to start practicing a more abundant mindset rather than one of scarcity or lack. To me, it’s more about gratitude and living abundantly without fear within our God-given gifts and callings, whatever that looks like.

And Tsh encourages us to view our hometown (or the town we currently live in) with a mindset of curiosity. I can’t wait to plan an entire tourist day in our local small town of Columbia, TN and explore all the places I pass regularly that I’ve yet to discover. So many good ideas here!

Simple With Tsh Oxenreider Podcast Episode 182: Dating + Marriage (With Kids)

In this episode, Tsh and I talk about what dating in marriage looks like with kids 8 and under (me) and kids 8 and over (her). It was so fun to chat about this, and I felt like we could have kept going for another hour! :)

Simple With Tsh Oxenreider Podcast Episode 178: Loving Our 40s

This was a super fun chat about Loving Our 40s! Tsh said it well in the podcast intro: “Growing older is a privilege denied to many people; it means we should celebrate the gift it is!” Join both of us 41-year-olds as we talk about how to celebrate birthday milestones (particularly turning 40 since that was most recent for both of us), and hear about Tsh’s new skin and hair routine since turning 40.

So this is fun…my new side gig for 2019 is as a Contributing Writer on The Art of Simple & Co-Host for the Simple Podcast! I’ll be contributing monthly on the site and podcast, in addition to writing more regularly here and for other publications, farming and homeschooling. Whew! It’s all things I enjoy though, so bring it, 2019.

How did the new side gig come to be? I’ve enjoyed following Tsh Oxenreider’s online and offline work for many years (I still make her homemade deodorant recipe from Organized Simplicity, and I’m here to testify that it is the only thing that works for these smelly farmer pits).

What I love about Tsh’s writings and podcast is that they’ve always helped me love my actual real life more vs. envying someone else’s life. In today’s world flooded with social media comparison, that’s so refreshing.

This past year, I had the opportunity to connect with Tsh and record two podcast episodes - a work episode about becoming a farmer (ep. 140), and My Good List (ep. 169). I quickly realized how much I love the podcast medium in addition to the creative writing I’ve done for many years. So I’m grateful to get to do both on the Art of Simple team.

Speaking of the team, here are other inspiring co-hosts and contributors. We all have such different daily lives, which I love! But what we have in common is that we want to live better and live well, and we’re open to learning from others and sharing our stories.

I’d love it if you’d follow along! Join my email list to stay in the loop on what I’m sharing here as well as on AoS.

Simple With Tsh Oxenreider Podcast Episode 169: My Good List

I’m grateful to be back on the Simple podcast today sharing My Good List - 4 things (big or small) that are making my life better right now. The idea behind My Good List (formerly called What’s Saving My Life Right Now) comes from this quote by Barbara Brown Taylor from her book, An Altar In The World:

“What is saving my life now is the conviction that there is no spiritual treasure to be found apart from the bodily experiences of human life on earth. My life depends on engaging the most ordinary physical activities with the most exquisite attention I can give them. My life depends on ignoring all touted distinctions between the secular and the sacred, the physical and the spiritual, the body and the soul. What is saving my life now is becoming more fully human, trusting that there is no way to God apart from real life in the real world.”

Sharing good things in our lives keeps us focused on gratefulness, plus it’s just plain fun to hear what other people are into right now. You can listen here or in iTunes…enjoy!

Simple With Tsh Oxenreider Podcast Episode 140

Hey friends! Just wanted to share that I'm on the podcast Simple with Tsh Oxenreider today, talking about Kindred Farm and all the ways farming has personally changed me. It was truly a joy talking with Tsh and sharing my/our story!

"I had all these fears, but it’s actually been the complete opposite of everything I was afraid of. I’ve actually found myself in a lot of ways since becoming a farmer that I completely did not expect...Farming has pushed me physically and emotionally and helped me learn what I’m capable of as a woman."

Listen to the whole thing here or in iTunes - it's episode 140...
