There is something deeply satisfying about planting seeds down in the soil and watching and waiting and seeing them spring up in God’s perfect timing and producing beautiful flowers and perfect vegetables every summer. We're well aware that it takes time for things to grow and it takes time to learn the exact right moment to harvest. It takes time and maturity and patience. We know that to become excellent at anything takes years of practice and study.
Friends, I’m thrilled to welcome back my dear friend Jennifer Dukes Lee to the show today! Jennifer is a calm, encouraging voice in our fast-paced world that is obsessed with hustle and haste. And I hope our conversation is a safe place for you to land when you’re reaching for ways to live a quiet, easy, and successful life. In our conversation, we talk about Jennifer’s new book “Growing Slow” and she shares practical tips on how we can stop treating life as an emergency and start living life the way it was meant to be lived - slowly. She also reminds us that true peace comes from embracing the life that God crafted for each and every one of us. Listen in as Jennifer and I talk about: The trap of comparing ourselves to the accomplishments of others The connection God created between our lives and the Earth’s seasons How to view time as a both a friend and tool that God uses in our daily lives Her craziest farm story about a rogue pig Favorite quotes: 1. When I put into place some pauses in my life, really changed things and adopted what I call a slow growth mindset, that has been transformational for me. 2. Slow progress is still progress. 3. There's always something sitting out there as if it’s a milestone. I don't know who created these, but there really are no set milestones. I think when we strip all of that away. And if we go our own way and grow our own way. We will experience a lot of freedom. That chips away at the hurry that's hanging around our hearts. 4. In our hurry, we're really not setting down the roots that we need to hold us firm when the storms inevitably come. 5. Without sustainable living as human beings we're gonna ruin the fields that are our lives and our hearts in these places where God's planting seeds in us. In this episode I answer these questions: 1.

Jennifer's new book, Growing Slow is a message that is so needed right now! We discuss how life on a farm has lessons that apply to each one of us, and how growing slow in this fast-paced world is exactly what we need.
Jennifer and I first met over email when she rejected my first book proposal. And then we met over zoom where she rejected my second book proposal. Talk about growing slow! I gave her a hard time about that during our conversation. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. And, she has learned a lot about what is looks like to burnout despite great boundaries. She has learned firsthand what it looks like to slowly watch your dreams become reality. She is the author of multiple books, including her latest, Growing Slow: Lessons on Un-hurrying Your Heart From an Accidental Farm Girl. I don’t know about you but I always want to grow fast. I want instant everything. But sometimes the pursuit of the fast and furious lifestyle leaves us empty, and just, well, tired.

Growing takes time. Growing and waiting for the ripe moment requires hard work and patience. We are so used to instant gratification that we often quit on something before it has had proper time to grow -- but character building and training takes time.
