This week we are talking to and about the sleep-deprived—which probably means you. Whether you are lacking sleep because of insomnia, illness, small children, worries, work, or all of the above, you need more sleep and this week’s show offers ideas for ways to get the rest your body needs to be physically, mentally, and emotionally your best every day. A few of the tips I share:

  1. Be disciplined about bedtime.
  2. Give yourself a “caffeine curfew.”
  3. Exercise regularly.
  4. Consider supplements.
  5. Have a bedtime routine.
  6. Limit technology before bed.
  7. Take a nap if you need to!

Also, check out the podcast I mention from Fr. Mike Schmitz on why we should prioritize sleep.

As a regular segment beginning this week, and for the next several shows, I am sharing a bit of the content from my new book, You Are Enough: What Women of the Bible Teach You About Your Mission and Worth. This week, we consider the story of Bathsheba and King David from a female perspective, and see what we can learn about how God sees us, even in times of pain and powerlessness.


Snippet from the Show

Sometimes, when we’re trying to do work, and we’re not going to bed at night, it’s our pride that won’t let go and just give it to God and say, “I’ve done what I can for now for today, it’s in your hands now God.”
