Jen Pollock Michel: Writing, Patience, and Hope

Play
Read more

Jen Pollock Michel talks with us about the importance of waiting (patience, young writer), the practical realities important to consider (am I asking questions that readers care about?), and the role that writing can play during difficult times like the ones we're living in. Oh, and why don't men buy theology books written by women? You know--all the easy topics.

19: The Meaning of Home with Jen Pollock Michel

Play

The Meaning of Home

Years before ever getting married, having babies and being a full time homemaker, I *knew* that was all I wanted to do.  Skip college; stay-at-home-mom-life full speed ahead! It was a life-long dream, my heart's desire... a longing.

A few years ago I stumbled upon the book, "Keeping Place: Reflections on the Meaning of Home," by Jen Pollock Michel.  After God's Word, I return to her book over and over when my mindset towards home feels "off." Join me and listen in to today's conversation as we talk about:

  • Where your longing for home comes from...
  • What it is that creates dissatisfaction with the modern "husband who works long hours and the isolated-at-home life..."
  • What home life used to be, generations ago...
  • How modern time saving devices actually drain a housewife's satisfaction, rather than adding to it...
  • Learn what is the most satisfying and creative about household tasks...
  • The best place to find and create social connection...
  • and more...

“Advent isn’t just a private experience. It’s public witness.” @jenpmichel on #Advent with @aahales on #findingholypodcast
