Today on the show, we are talking about rest with the lovely Melanie Redd. Melanie is an author, speaker, wife, and mom, and it was such a pleasure having her on the show.

Before diving into the topic of rest, I had to use our time together to my advantage and pick her brain as a working mom. Melanie has been a writer for a long time, and it’s also something she navigated while raising little ones. Anytime I have the opportunity to learn from a woman who inspires me and has already walked down a path I am fumbling through, I can’t help but ask a few questions. Her advice was encouraging and so helpful.

As we discussed rest, I loved that Melanie has a realistic view when sharing solutions for a busy culture. She doesn’t suggest shutting it all down and closing out the world, but she does point us right back to where we need to be looking. She also shared some practical advice on how to live a more intentional, less stressful life.

Melanie shared her new devotional called Just Rest. If you’re busy and can't find the time, this is the one. It's so easy to consume in a short pocket of time. Each one takes less than ten minutes, and you walk away feeling refreshed.

I hope you enjoy today’s episode as much as I did.
