Ep 25: What Sabbath Teaches Us about Mom Guilt & Soul Care

28 min / Published

Mom guilt. It's real and it's awful. We deal with it on a daily basis. We're not doing enough, we're not enough. And when we bring in the conversation of soul care, the mom guilt flares us. How can we focus on doing things that make us feel "alive"? Isn't that selfish and discontent? How can it be true that we adore our kids and enjoy being their mom but also feel a nagging that something is missing? Today, we're tackling this question, defining soul care a bit differently, and discussing how Sabbath both teaches us to embrace soul care and gives us a safe space in which to practice it. I hope you take a listen.
