Podcast: Life-Giving Spiritual Practices for Weary Parents (Courtney Ellis)

By Steve Austin | catching your breath

Oct 02


Welcome to episode 33 of Catching Your Breath: The Podcast. I’m so excited for you to hear this conversation between my wife Lindsey, our new friend Courtney Ellis, and me.

Almost Holy Mama is so friggin honest, funny, and beautiful. It is real, raw, and relatable. It’s not full of platitudes or unreasonable expectations from someone who just doesn’t get it. Courtney is a mama of 3 little ones and she gives us permission to tell the truth, while gently nudging us toward a better way to have a relationship with God WHILE parenting. The one makes us better at the other.

For parents of young children, it often feels like we will have to wait until the kids graduate to engage in regular spiritual practices. That, or just shame ourselves into trying harder. But what if there was another way? A better way. How do we create spiritual practices in one of life’s more exhausting seasons? This is a talk about that.

Welcome to the podcast.
