Learning To Live From Rest

  Learn the breakthrough for more spiritual rest  https://www.lindseynadler.com/blog/how-to-live-from-a-place-of-rest

Last night I had a breakthrough. A complete revelation that I want to share with you because I know it will bless your socks off. 

So, last night I was sitting on my couch with my pups at my feet watching a new course called Still, by Jenny Donnelly. Jenny has influenced my life in powerful ways and I highly recommend buying anything she puts out. It's no secret that I believe strongly in continual personal and spiritual growth. So much so, that I’ve spent thousands of dollars on courses, trainings, and coaching because I’ve seen the power of what happens to a woman’s life that’s committed to growth.

We can grow 20 years in two or two years in 20. It’s all a matter of what we are willing to invest in ourselves. 

So as I’m watching this course Jenny's voice reached out through the screen and grabbed me as she explained a simple acronym for the word rest. 


Boom. Enter the revelation. I began to hear that still small voice impress some things upon me and open up insight for me and for you. 

My calling in life is and has always been about empowering women and seeing them step into what God is calling them to be. Over the years, the assignment has changed but the calling remains the same and has always come back to one thing; empowerment. 

So it goes without saying that I get asked the same questions a lot. You see, we all share the same struggles. The only difference is the number on our mailbox. No matter the question, it typically begins with “How do I _______.”

If we aren’t careful, “How do I “can put us in a place of thinking that we have to have all the answers, figure everything out. That it’s all up to us when it isn’t. No wonder there is such a struggle with fear and anxiety (unrest). Believing everything is up to you is a giant weight to put on our shoulders. One we were never asked to carry. 

Release. Every. Single. Thing. 

To me this means surrendering my need to control, fix and solve all my own problems. It means I put whatever it is in the hands of a loving father God. It means I get out of the way and surrender the work to God. He’s got this. 

Now this doesn’t mean I don’t handle business, responsibilities or participate in my healing and transformation. It DOES mean that my strength gets out of my head and my own abilities and things shift into the rest and power of a loving, wild, kind, just and faithful father.

Release. Every. Single. Thing. 

I found that we all have that thing or things that we just have a hard time releasing into his hands. That mini control freak in all of us has it’s claws around something. But if we get the revelation to release every single thing we enter into real rest and trust and maybe it’s time to pry it out of those clutches. Release. Every. Single. Thing. 

Your body and your soul will thank you for it. 

Now, can you imagine if I wouldn’t have been willing to invest in that course for myself? I wouldn’t have gotten this breakthrough and neither would you. 

What we invest into ourselves is never really about us anyway. Receive that. 

Release. Every. Single. Thing. 

Passion Is Everything,






A Simple Path To Clarity

I empower women to cultivate a life of passion and step into their God-given gifts and I LOVE IT. 

But one of the things I don’t love is confusion, fear and doubt. This little trifecta is primarily what I see the enemy using to hijack our lives and keep us stuck. Remember it’s not always about destroying you but sedating you. 

When I counsel women, over and over again I here this statement “I just need clarity. I wish I knew which way to go.”

With me?

Alrighty, then listen up: we all want clarity but overthinking will ruin your life. Do your best not to go there. Clarity is not the same as certainty and if you’re banking on having everything figured out and certain before you take action you will stay in the same place way way longer than you have to. 

Clarity is just being able to see better. It’s NOT being able to see everything. 

So I’ve got a simple path to clarity that you can use right now. Don’t over think this. Just go :) 

1. Get away. This can look like going out of town to a retreat, to a cabin in the woods, or to a place that’s quiet and peaceful for you. Get out of your normal environment. And if you can’t do this right now figure out a way to turn off the noise in your life. Set aside a weekend to be low key. Go to the park, go somewhere. Anywhere. Just do whatever it takes to get out of the day in day out so you can actually do some heart work. 

2. Pray. Ask God what he thinks. Rest in his nature and his goodness. Trust what comes to you and stop arguing with what he says or trying to talk yourself out of what you’re hearing. Be ok if you don’t hear anything as well. 

Some times he doesn’t say anything because you have choices and options. Remember, you're not a slave but a friend. And some times he doesn’t say anything because he’s actually growing faith and risk taking in you. Some times he doesn’t say anything because he has already answered the question and you know it. You’re just scared.

So instead of asking him the same question. Deal with your fear. Which leads to the next step. 

3. Take action. Sometimes the doors aren’t going to open until you knock on them. Get curious. Start taking risks and small steps. You will be amazed at how God starts to speak here and direct your steps. Confirmation will start to happen in one way or the other when you start to steward and move on the promises. He will tell you about the timing. 

4. Readjust. Based on what you learn from taking action readjust based on what God is speaking. YES. This means you have to be FLEXIBLE. Pivot, change, and get in step with the Holy Spirit. You will find that most of this clarity deal is about an intimate relationship with God. Many things are learned through an ever evolving relationship and God is trying to get you to release that need for certainty to him. 

Get Away
Take Action

That’s it. 

Oh and one last thing-you’re actually not powerful enough to ruin the destiny God has for you. God is God and you are not. Even if you screw up he will bring you back to where you are supposed to be. The call and gifts of God on you are irrevocable so rest in that. Embrace the process and fall in love with it. 

As one of my favorite author’s says “Our lives are not math problems but epic stories.”

Embrace the story and let go of the math problem mentality. There’s no fun in that anyway.

On The Struggle Bus? Here's how to get off it...

On the struggle bus lately?  We all have seasons where we feel like we just can’t get off the damn thing. We feel stuck, unmotivated and like we can’t pull ourselves out of this weird funk. 

We don’t wake up with a plan or a purpose and everything seems like work and hassle. Can you relate? 

If so, lean in here. I wan’t to give you some encouragement…IT’S TIME TO GET OFF THE STRUGGLE BUS. Right NOW. I’ve got three tips to help you pull the brakes and and get back out there pursing your passion and living on purpose. 

Here you go :) Here's how to get off the struggle bus. 

1. What we focus on grows. So stop focusing on how exhausted you are. Some of us have made exhaustion an identity and many time the exhaustion has nothing to do with the amount of sleep we are getting or physical activity we are engaged in but rather, what we’re giving emotional and mental energy to.

Guess what you have complete power over? What you choose, agree with, and think. So take assessment of what you are allowing to suck the life out of you and stop the vampires now!

2. Grace not perfection. Stop beating yourself up for struggling and not being perfect. Guilt and condemnation are not from God. Start viewing your struggle bus times as a season and a part of life. NOT an identity or something that’s permanent.

If you struggle then that means you’re a real human being taking risks and living life. So get back out there. Also remember that something is better than nothing. Start taking small steps in the direction you want to go in and do what you can with what you have. 

3. Worship like a banshee. Here’s what I know to be true. 5 minutes in the presence of God can do what 5 hours in counseling couldn’t. I’m all for counseling by the way but NOTHING replaces and will change your life like worship. Saturate your home, car, space, etc with worship music. Begin to praise, sing, dance, create like you never have before. REFUSE to leave until you have breakthrough. I’m not talking about performing or hustling here. I’m talking about asking, seeking and knocking repeatedly just like God tells us to.

Love will find us when we seek with all our heart. Also, worship is not relegated to music alone. It’s anything you do where your heart is connected and turned towards God. Get creative. Do something different. Get out of your comfort zone. 

*Side note: worshiping when you don’t feel like it isn’t fake it’s FAITH. Odds are your emotions have been hijacked by a number of things and we need to get in the presence of God and put them at this feet. If everything in. life is determined solely by what you feel like doing then on the struggle bus you will remain. 

Ok friend, it’s time to put these into practice and start living again like the amazing woman you are. Let me know how it goes this week :) I'm cheering you on.
