144: How to Say Yes Wisely and Live a More Peaceful Life with Bethany Beal
If you’ve listened to the podcast for a while, you know that I talk a lot about knowing your priorities and doing what it takes to live out those priorities.
I’ve shared that one of the ways we can live out our priorities is to figure out what we should say yes to and what should get a no.
In this episode, Bethany Beal from Girl Defined Ministries is here to talk about things we need to consider when it comes to using our yes and no wisely. I’m excited to dive into this topic for many reasons. But I’ve had a recent wake-up call due to an unexpected situation in my life that is making me even more passionate about using our time wisely to live out God’s call on our lives. I’ll share more about that situation in a future episode. But just know I will be hitting the message of stop wasting time and pursue what matters most really heavily over the next few months.
Listen to my conversation with Bethany to learn how you can say yes wisely so you can live out the calling God has on your life.
