Show Notes-

On today’s episode of Cultivating the Lovely, MacKenzie talks with her good friends Katie Duckett and Jenny Wilcox about holy habits. Together they explain what that means and why they are so important, especially in challenging or uncertain seasons of life. We think this will be an uplifting conversation, so sit back, relax and be encouraged!

  • Katie introduces the topic of holy habits
  • MacKenzie talks about the difference between legalistic habits and making lifestyle changes out of real desire
  • How the habits Jenny and Katie cultivated grounded them in their faith
  • Jenny talks about the joy of self-sacrifice and the goodness of having a God who is the caring Creator
  • The great value in being faithful and consistent with a discipline

One of the things that creating healthy habits requires of you is that every day you die to self. You start to say “yes” and do something you don’t want to do.

  • Jenny talks about habits as tools that help us re-center our souls

  • MacKenzie is tapping into her homemaking skills again
  • Jenny and Katie tell about how they got their special sourdough starter
  • The value of making something beautiful with your hands
  • How beholding beauty points us to God
  • Being present in the small things is so crucial in these times
