How Busy Is Too Busy? (with Rachel Balducci)

Rachel Balducci’s new book, Overcommitted: Cut Chaos and Find Balance. is all about busy schedules and how we can find balance — and this time of quarantine is a wonderful opportunity to think about all those things and make a plan for personal and family schedules after quarantine. Rachel and I discuss ways to do that, how we can make prayer a priority, and how to discern those things that are truly important to us as a family.

Rachel is a mom of six and is also my co-host on The Gist on CatholicTV, and my dear friend of many years.

“Connection is more important than perfection.”


Shownotes

It all starts with prayer. If you’re missing that element, forget it. You could have a Martha Stewart perfect home, a perfect work life, etc., and none of it will matter without a life centered in prayer.

This week, I also answer a question from Jessica who is wondering how to organize her household chores, and if it might make sense to schedule them like Grandma always did. 🙂
