Does the idea of hustle motivate you or make you feel like you want to take a nap?
Are you overwhelmed by the idea of fully obeying God in spite of the pull on your heart to heed His still small voice?
Maybe your answer is YES to both these questions, as opposite as they may seem.
On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I’m joined by Malinda Fuller, author of Obedience over Hustle: The Surrender of a Striving Heart, for a deeply meaningful reflection on what it looks like to simply obey God and cease the endless hustle. For Malinda, that turn began rather dramatically, and she’s not looked back.
Her thoughts about finding a rhythm, cultivating routines, and making the moments together count the most are both inspiring and practical. She is a homeschooling mom to two spirited girls, on her latest adventure with her husband, Alex, living in an RV and traveling for his work.
This episode will inspire you to live in the freedom of obedience instead of the bondage of hustle.
