Morning time is a huge part of the rhythm of the Peaceful Press.

“For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.” – Teresa of Ávila Welcome to episode 77. Jennifer and Emelie come together to talk about prayer. Prayer is a habit essential to our walk as mothers. We are entrusted with the care of souls, and how can we do that without constant communion with God?  Not only that, but our Christian faith gives us open access to a loving God who speaks to us as individuals and the body of Christ, encourages, exhorts, guides us in our daily decisions, comforts us in our stress and distress, and is a "very present help in trouble."

If you were dropped into an alpine meadow with a large picnic hamper full of C.S. Lewisesque fruits and foods, and your children, would you have the most delicious day of your life? Imagine this meadow has a stream, and you don't have a phone or a computer; it's you and your children in the most pristine and quiet setting imaginable.  Would you have the best day of your life? Or would the silence and spacious emptiness of such a day make you feel uneasy? Do you think something important might not be getting done? For me, the thought of having such an unproductive day fills me with a low level of anxiety.  What if in our busyness and overstimulation, we are missing an invitation to connect with Jesus? What if there is a level of Shalom on offer for our homes that requires us to prioritise empty space in our daily lives?  Welcome to episode 74 with Kimberly June Miller, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. We've talked so much about becoming healthier as parents across the Restoration Home Podcast and I love this conversation because it is full of practical advice and compassion for parents.  Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

Episode 73 marks the beginning of a four week segment on stewardship. Jennifer and Emelie start with the most basic stewardship, our hormones, specifically progesterone!*  Progesterone is the hormone that prepares your body for pregnancy at the end of your cycle. When you have enough of it, you should feel calm and nurtured in the days running up to your cycle. But stress, crowded schedules, busy school loads, and trying to do everything can derail our progesterone production.  Why does this matter? When we don't steward our hormones properly across our cycle, we start using cortisol and adrenals to function. This causes long term stress on our body, reducing our capacity to handle bigger life stressors that come our way because we have used everything up trying to over perform during the progesterone (Luteal Phase) of our cycle.  Addressing this is about learning micro stewardship of our emotions and progesterone across the cycle. Micro emotional stewardship is learning to connect with God in the middle of a emotion and ask:  1. Is this feeling true or is it an emotion that's coming up and related to some old pain or lie about the goodness of God, the love of my husband, or God's sufficiency? (Memorise Psalm 23) 2. Is this feeling something physical–hormonal, exhaustion, poor diet choice, stress? 3. Is my reaction to this feeling going to bring connection or disconnection?  Progesterone stewardship is learning to identify the foods and care your body needs in the last 10 days of your cycle.  *None of this is medical advice, nor is it intended to be.  Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

How do you feel when you're doing the dishes, weeding in the garden, working for a paycheck, folding laundry, paying the bills, making dinner for a close friend you're excited to see, or packing for your dream trip? Do you know what these things have in common? They are work. But we have very different feelings associated with each one. Dishes, laundry, weeding are alternately exhausting, relaxing, or frustrating. Making dinner for our close friend or a loved one, packing for a dream holiday, it's exhilirating, fun, and a joy.  In episode 69, Jennifer and Emelie dive down into the mindsets, lies, fears, and feelings we get when it comes to work, how we can change our mindset around the most mundane tasks, and begin to enjoy work as a better part of being alive.    Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

Sally Clarkson is a dear friend and long awaited guest of the podcast. Her long years of mothering, and her pursuit of sacred living for mind, body and spirit, has made her an enduring motherhood figure. In episode 67, she joins Jennifer to talk about planting a flag in the ground of your heart that says: from this point forward, I will no longer listen to lies, I will no longer live according to my fears, but according to the goodness of God, and His truth.  There is more than just symbolism to this gesture though. There is planning, and dreaming and executing the vision of what that might look like for your unique life. Jennifer and Sally talk about how to go about planting that flag, and creating a vision and course of action to support a life that is lived bravely, gently, and in truth.  Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

It's the beginning of 2024, and we are opening The Restoration Home Community. We are so excited for this next year of habit building and community.  "Why" you might ask. Well, habits, community, looking your children in the eye, a few more family dinners is about more than a nicer life or happier children, a cleaner house, more time to exercise. These are all parts of building something beautiful and sustaining that can carry ourselves and our families through whatever lies ahead.  In preparation for the community and podcast line up for 2024, Jennifer and Emelie came together to talk about community, restoration, and how you can save the world by eating dinner as a family. But ultimately, we're excited about how growing habits of thankfulness, prayer, quiet can bring us closer to God and bring greater wholeness to our day to day lives.    Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

How can the principles of a Charlotte Mason education help you love God and create an elevated wholesome family? Charlotte Mason wrote of education, "We allow no separation to grow up between the intellectual and 'spiritual' life of children...". The unity between a child's spiritual growth and their intellectual development has led Jennifer, over the years, to create the Peaceful Press and with her husband, curate a home environment that focuses on "whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy...".(Phil 4:8) But what does the home environment have to do with education? What do we mean when we talk about not separating a child's spiritual life from their education?  In this solo episode, Jennifer does a delightful and well researched job of explaining the philosophy behind the Peaceful Press education method, and its role in restoration.  Finally, we are so excited to announce that the Restoration Home Community is NOW OPEN. Join Jennifer for a year of habit building through Jennifer's new book "Habits for a Sacred Home". One thing we have learned is that community is so important for growing in our habits and acheiving our goals, and we're excited to build community around sacred habits in 2024.  Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

With 2023 drawing to a close and 2024 beginning, there are things we can do to process, grieve, celebrate the past year, so we can approach the new year with hope, vision, and excitement.  Jennifer and Emelie come together in Episode 63 to share how they process the past year, and plan for the next year.  This episode covers personal stories and ideas for the processes of welcoming in the new year.

Is technology a tool or a toy, good or bad? What role does the arts play in technology? Can technology play a part in restoring homes?  Ryan Collins, president of Bethel Tech, joins Jennifer in Episode 62 to answer these questions and so much more. There is a place for connection over video games, and the arts are the bedrock to a career in technology, just as they are for other aspects of a child's development into a well rounded human. Ryan also brings to the podcast a passion for righteous principles in the work force, his excitement for tech careers opportunities that skip years of college and debt, and his experience as a homeschool dad building a family culture of intentionality.  Ryan's Practices for a whole and Restored Family:  We turn off wifi every night when we go to bed.

One of the values of restoration is creativity. Architecture is creativity, making a budget go farther than you thought is creativity, cooking a beautiful meal, scheduling your day so you have time for what is important to you, and so much more require creative actions. At the root of creativity is "create", which means "to make or bring into existence something new". Creativity is producing something which is not obvious or already there.  While creativity can range from perfecting organization in a small space to a Degas painting, one thing all creative actions have in common is the need for white space, quiet space, empty space to provide the downtime needed for creativity.  This week Jennifer Pepito is joined by Ashlee Gadd the creator of Coffee and Crumbs and author at the Coffee and Crumbs Substack. They talk about how to create downtime for creativity, learning to better understand your personal relationship with social media and the spiritual importance of creativity.    Episode sponsored by the Peaceful Press!

The change as I moved closer to the ocean, the expanses of green, the hills, the empty space, I could feel myself starting to breathe again.
