After taking a summer break, the podcast is back for Season 3, and I am privileged to start the season out with a fabulous guest, Yvonne Marie, M.Ed. Yvonne is an author, artist, poet, and teacher, and she recently wrote her first book, Kill the Busy, Save the Bee. If you find that you’re constantly busy, but not always in productive ways, you will be encouraged by today’s episode.
Yvonne explains that she is a “busy bee,” and found that she was often busiest in her thought life. However, much of that busyness was unproductive, taking the forms of worry and anxiety. The Lord led her to begin studying bees, and she noticed that, even though bees were incredibly busy, all of their efforts were for a purpose. Yvonne shares what the Lord has taught her about the value of being still and seeking His presence.
I really enjoyed this conversation. Yvonne and I talked about everything from anxiety, to art, to poetry, to worship, to the importance of family.
