Is it possible to find joy in the small things? The boring chores? The tedious tasks that demand our attention?
Can we really learn to do whatever God has called us with joy, even if it isn’t the least bit glamorous?
If that is your struggle, tune into this episode of the More to Be Podcast and be inspired to find joy with Jesus in the small things.
On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I’m joined by friend and fellow writer, Asheritah Ciuciu for a chat about missional work and motherhood. Asheritah is a writer and speaker passionate about leading women to find joy in Jesus, which is what she does daily at OneThingAlone.com.
In this episode, she shares her story of growing up overseas, falling in love, surrendering her ministry dreams, and yielding to God’s work. She always had a passion to be a writer and majored in English in college, but didn’t know how it would happen. She began blogging during her first pregnancy and confesses the hardness of transition.
In our heart-to-heart conversation, Asheritah also relays how she’s practicing her faith in her motherhood journey while balancing the passion and pull of missional work. So grab your clean load of laundry needing some folding and a sharpie marker. There’s something you might want to put into practice after listening to our conversation, no matter what season in life you find yourself.
