Give God Everything {Including Your Anxiety} with Jessica Smartt {Podcast #208}

Give God Everything {Including Your Anxiety} with Jessica Smartt on the More to Be Podcast, Episode 208 | #Moretobe #Podcast #Anxiety


Join us on this week’s episode of the More to Be Podcast to hear from our special guest, Jessica Smartt, a fellow author, blogger, and homeschooling mama, who has learned to cling to Jesus through her struggle with anxiety.

Jessica and I chat about what that looks like to deal with anxiety with a wholly committed faith.

She shared how her mom’s response enabled her to see her need to get help as well as how her Bible-steeped upbringing has benefited her on this journey.

It was interesting to be on the other side of her story, as I completely identified with Jessica’s mom, feeling ill-equipped to help my daughter, Leah, in her struggles with anxiety, long before we knew that is what it was. By the way, Leah gives her full blessing for me to share her story.

Before we dive into Jessica’s story, we chat about homeschooling and curriculum. For those interested in what we mentioned, I included the links below.
