“Good fences make good neighbors” is a line from Robert Frost's Mending Wall, but the poem goes on to say, “Before I built a wall I'd ask to know / What I was walling in or walling out”  So often in our lives we feel the unrest of chaos or dysfunction in our relationships, but we don't know exactly what we need to wall out or wall in. My guest this week, Lysa TerKeurst faced a new season of life and wanted to enter it with wisdom and strength - caring for others and herself in each of her relationships. Her personal journey led to her newest book, Good Boundaries and Goodbyes, a guide for each of us as we navigate relationships, practice setting healthy boundaries and even sometimes need to say goodbye.  Connect with Lysa TerKeurst:  Website:  https://lysaterkeurst.com  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/OfficialLysa  Instagram:  @lysaterkeurst  Links Mentioned:   Good Boundaries and Goodbyes : Loving Others Without Losing the Best of Who You Are by Lysa TerKeurst    Setting Healthy Boundaries with Family :: Dr. John Townsend [Ep 250] Leslie Vernick and Difficult v Destructive Relationships - https://leslievernick.com  Therapy and Theology Podcast  Related Episodes: Setting Healthy Boundaries with Family :: Dr. John Townsend [Ep 250] Forgiving What You Can't Forget :: Lysa TerKeurst [Ep 304] 5 Schedule Sappers and How to Stop Them :: Lysa TerKeurst [Ep 45] Uninvited :: Lysa TerKeurst, Kay Wyma and Courtney DeFeo [Ep 131] Featured Sponsors:  Find links to this week's sponsors and unique promo codes at dontmomalone.com/sponsors.

Kay Wyma is joining us today to talk about purity and thoughts to consider as we pray for our kids. Praying purity definitely means we're praying for our kids to pursue it in their dating relationships, internet searches, music choices, clothes, and pure groups. However, we also know that purity is rooted in our identity, and when we know our worth it makes purity less about checking a box and more about trusting our Savior.     I love how Kay reminds us that through the blood of Christ we are all clothed in righteousness, and that nothing our kids have done (or that has been done to them) can take that away. There's a whole lot of soul issues around the notion of purity, and I'm grateful Kay is joining us today to break it down in ways we probably haven't considered before.     It's hard to believe we're in our last month of praying through the school year! Finish strong and join us in praying today!

Inspiring Perspective in Parenting with Kay Wyma   She equips herself with strength [spiritual, mental, and physical fitness for her God-given task] And makes her arms strong. Proverbs 31:17 (AMP)   Questions We Discuss: 1. You believe kids thrive on high expectations and you became determined to parent your children "as if they were inherently strong, not inherently weak." . . how did this epiphany launch you into a 12-month experiment with your kids? 2. What list did you create for your "Top Twelve Things a Kid Should Know Before Flying the Wyma Coop"? 3. Now that some of your children have grown and launched, how do they look back on this experiment?   Kay Wyma is a mom, blogger, vodcaster, and author of four books in which she has tackled, with candor and humor, some of the troubling societal issues that impact us all. Kay's writings have led her to appearances on TODAY, CNN, Hallmark's Home & Family, and more. Before staying at home with her kids, she held positions at the White House and Bank of America.

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”   Ephesians 2:8–10 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.

If your pants are a little tighter and the stress level a little higher this Monday after Thanksgiving, you're not alone. With all the shopping, wrapping, parties, family gatherings, cooking, and baking—it may feel like a little hope is exactly what it's gonna take to keep going.   Kay Wyma is with me today (I mean seriously, she's the best), and we're talking about the role hope plays in our lives and the lives of our children. As we pray hope over our kids this week, we're reminded that only the Lord can strengthen, restore, and deliver on the great plans he has for each of our lives. Knowing this, we can pray for our kids to find hope even on their most discouraging days as he faithfully restores their strength and gives them a kingdom perspective.   Can I encourage you these next few weeks to keep up the good work of praying for your kids each week? If you're like me, it feels like sometimes the first things to go in the craziness of the holidays are those things that have the most significance. Prayer is significant, so let's keep on keeping on the next few weeks.

After we spoke with our friend Kay Wyma last month about her new book, "The Peace Project," we decided to spend an entire episode talking about mercy. That's right. Mercy. So much of that discussion left us wanting more, so here it is. We discuss why showing mercy is so hard. Why??? The definition of mercy is "compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm." At its core, mercy is forgiveness. But it seems beyond love and forgiveness. We hope you'll be encouraged by our discussion. We always want to talk about things that will encourage us but also spur us on.

This was one of those conversations where we had to stop talking so we could press record and keep talking. Kay Wyma is such a lovely individual with such a big heart for God and for those around her. Unexpectedly Kay found herself with a bad attitude in an everyday life situation and God used that moment to invite her into a 30 Day journey of pursuing thankfulness, kindness and mercy. The result: Peace. And often peace feels like one of those elusive things, reserved for those people who don't seem to experience frustration or anger. Those people who don't experience loss or have misunderstandings. But what if peace is available to even those of us who do. Us regular humans that bump up against the pressures and stresses of life and other broken and hurting people? Kay invites us into a journey to pursue peace through her latest book, The Peace Project: A 30 Day Experiment Practicing Thankfulness, Kindness, and Mercy.

Alright guys, stop what you’re doing because I have the perfect summer experiment for us to do with our kids this month!   More accurately, Kay Wyma has the perfect 30-day experiment, and we’re talking all about it today on Pardon the Mess.   It’s called The Peace Project: A 30-Day Experiment Practicing Thankfulness, Kindness, and Mercy. What is it you ask?   The Peace Project is an experiment that invites us to experience lasting personal peace by getting serious about showing thankfulness, kindness, and mercy with everyone and everything we encounter each day.   Kay shares with us how this concept came about and the impact it’s had on her life and the lives of those around her. She’s practical in showing us what it looks like each day and how she’s lived in some really hard places this last year in complete peace because God reframed her perspective.   Let’s be honest: peace is a distant memory when all these kids are home all day asking for food, activities, and attention. I urge you to take a few minutes today to listen to our conversation and then join my family as we embark on this 30-day journey of showing thankfulness, kindness, and mercy.   There are few things we need more of on this side of heaven than peace. I just know God’s going to do big things through this experiment—so let’s do it together!

In a world that seems to bring more and more division every day, how do we connect with other people in a deep, human way? Kay Wyma takes us into her story of how seemingly small acts of kindness, thankfulness and mercy have made all the difference for her and her family.  “There are so many ways you can practice kindness that are outward acts of kindness. And then you'll start to realize kindness is picking up the laundry for somebody that I'm frustrated with, you know, that they could have done it themselves.There are kindness opportunities everywhere. Be kind to yourself for Pete's sake. At least one day a week. Actively do something kind for yourself.” Learn about what Kay calls a Soul 30 and her new book The Peace Project. I love that this isn't another thing for your to do list, it is more about HOW you do the things on your list. And when we practice kindness, thankfulness and mercy we can't help reflecting the goodness of God to a world that needs it more than ever.    Connect with Kay Wyma:  Website: kaywyma.com  Facebook: facebook.com/kaywillswyma   Instagram: @kaywyma    Links Mentioned:   BOOK: The Peace Project: A 30-Day Experiment Practicing Thankfulness, Kindness, and Mercy Featured Sponsors:  Nextdoor—Join your neighborhood on the FREE app. Use this link nextdoor.com/DMA to let them know you heard about it from me.  Betterhelp—Listeners of the DMA podcast get 10% off their first month of secure online professional counseling.

“The only thing getting thin during this quarantine is my patience.” – Author Unknown I don’t know who said this, but I give it a resounding amen as we kick off week nine of sheltering in place. Who’s with me? This week we’re praying patience over our kids, and I’m guessing few of us feel qualified to teach anyone a lesson in patience these days. Thankfully the Lord models his great patience in dealing with us and guides us with grace as we attempt to raise kids in this fruit of the spirit. As we consider what patience looks like for our kids, we naturally think about it in the context of their siblings, friends, teammates, and especially their parents. But take a few minutes to listen to our podcast today as Kay Wyma joins me to talk about an even deeper level of praying patience for our kids – the discipline of waiting patiently for the Lord’s hand in their lives. Praying and abundance of patience with you and for you this week! Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4:2

How are your New Year’s resolutions coming? It’s been a few months since we kicked off 2020 and, undoubtedly, many of us have decided those naïve resolutions of January were simply a pipe dream. The crowds at the gym have died down while the lines at the In-N-Out Burger have maxed out. I have the “My Fitness Pal” app on my phone. Every single morning, it pops up a notification around 10:00 a.m. asking if I’ve forgotten to log my breakfast.  You’re precious, little app, but I haven’t logged my breakfast (or lunch or dinner) in about six weeks. But I do want to thank you for being so ambitious on my behalf and always thinking the best of me by assuming it’s just an oversight. This week, we’re praying that our kids have the resolve to turn away from the temptations they face and a willingness to turn to Jesus when they need a way out. Our kids’ generation is inundated with social media, pornography, graphic music, widespread internet access, and so much more. Their resolve will need to be mighty to withstand the temptation they will face in their lives. Kay Wyma joins us today with a needed reminder that worth is at the center of the ability to show resolve.  Our kids need to be reminded that they have immense worth in Christ and that looking away, or saying no, or living differently comes from knowing you who you are to Jesus. In short, we’re praying, through Jesus, that our kids will have the strength and conviction to live set apart or holy in a world that is growing further and further away from Christ.

We’re kicking off a new series this March focused on intentionality. I can’t think of a better way to get started than with Jennie Allen encouraging us to be intentional in identifying the toxic thoughts in our lives.  Jennie says “the greatest spiritual battle of our generation is being fought between our ears.” And with an average of 30,000 thoughts a day going through our minds, it’s easy to see how quickly those negative thoughts can have a huge impact on our lives.   On today’s program, Jennie Allen, Kay Wyma, and I jump in the car for a carpool podcast of sorts.  We talk about:  identifying our negative thought patterns, acknowledging that we are in charge of our thoughts; they are not in charge of us, the science behind our thoughts, and remembering that God gives us the power to confront and overcome the toxic ones. It’s a fun interview you won’t want to miss. We even drove through McDonald’s for fries during our chat. We’re so fortunate to have Jennie Allen on Pardon the Mess. She’s a gifted communicator and the founder and visionary behind the IF:Gathering, an organization that equips women to know God more deeply and disciple others.

We say this often, but parenting is one of the greatest blessings and one of the greatest challenges. There are really hard places in parenting that are much easier to avoid rather than address head-on.  Suicide is one of those topics.  It’s emotional, it’s scary, and it’s easy to feel inadequate when it comes to talking about it. That said, the CDC lists suicide as the second-leading cause of death in children and young adults between the ages of ten and twenty-four. We can’t afford to gloss over a topic so pervasive in our youth.  This statistic has become more than a number in recent days as we have seen family after family impacted by suicide in our community. Many of you have asked us to consider entering the conversation and to provide biblical guidance and resources. We heard you, and today we are doing just that by providing a special edition of content focused on suicide.  Our prayer is that these resources are helpful as you consider the topic of suicide. However, we are not a substitute for professional help. If you are struggling (or anyone around you is), please get the help you need and deserve.  The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is (800)273-8255.

If we’ve learned anything the last few weeks, it’s that acts of generosity are all around us this time of year – but definitely not in the form of a Peleton bike gifted to your wife and a resulting a video diary of her fitness journey. That, my friends, is dangerous territory. I remember my Dad used to say you never give a gift with a plug to your wife for Christmas (meaning an appliance). Now I believe we can all agree that one might be wise to stay away from gifts with a plug AND a pedometer. That’s just a little Christmas advice for you as we all finish up our shopping this year. You’re welcome. This week, as we continue to pray for our children this school year, we’re praying for generosity in their lives. Kay Wyma joins us today with a great reminder that true generosity stems from acknowledging all the Lord has done for us. Chew on that for a minute: Generosity naturally spills over to those around us when we live with gratitude for what the Lord has done in our own lives. I can’t think of a better gift we can give our kids this week than praying they live lives marked with gratitude. Praying they show generosity in their friendships, being happy when others succeed, and compassionate when they do not. Let’s also pray generosity in their areas of influence by including peers who are overlooked, and always being willing to serve those around them when they see needs. Let’s pray our kids live all of their days rooted in generosity with gratitude for who Jesus is to us – beginning all those years ago when he came to earth as flesh, born in a lowly manger so everyone could be offered eternal life with him. I can’t think of an easier time of year to show generosity because of what Jesus has done in our own lives. Let’s share that with our kids. Take a minute to listen to our podcast today while you’re driving, shopping, or sitting by the Christmas tree. And think long and hard before you purchase your beloved a blender, vacuum, or a Peleton bike. Ha! Note: If you missed our podcast with Kay Wyma last Thursday, take a minute to listen today. She unpacks the song “Joy to the World” and gives us practical ways to hydrate our souls this holiday season. It’s just the word we all need as we make the final lap headed into Christmas.

Pardon the Mess: A Christian Parenting Podcast

A show of hands for anyone who might need a few deep breaths as we’re headed into the final lap before the big day? Christmas often brings out our very best—generosity, focus on Jesus, time with friends and family. Christmas also may bring out our worst—exhaustion, materialism, sadness. You’re not alone if you’re feeling stressed, tired, overwhelmed, sad, excited, grateful, and everything in between. Kay Wyma, author, blogger, and mother of five shares practical ways to experience true Christmas joy. She encourages us to hydrate for the holidays by practicing kindness, relishing the regular, and stopping to simply look up (literally). Kay is my dear friend, and I am so grateful to have her join us again on Pardon the Mess. I was so refreshed by her words that a few times I forgot we were recording. She takes the Christmas carol “Joy to the World” and breaks it down beautifully, reminding us that you experience joy by trusting the One in whom you have faith. I didn’t just enjoy hearing from Kay today – I needed to hear it. I have a feeling you will feel the same way. She’s got a word for all of us as we run errands and make last minute preparations for Christmas. And don’t miss the very end where she gives us a few thoughts on entitlement and how to overcome it with our kids this time of year.

Now that brings much happiness to our new season! In addition to the powerful messages our featured guests will share on today’s show, it brings me much happiness to recount the history of Christian Coffee Talk for our new listeners, and share all of Psalm 119 to recharge and realign our steps in 2019 with His decrees.” Featured Guest No 1: Alli Worthington Alli Worthington is an author, speaker, business coach and entrepreneur. Her goal is to help women live the life they were created to live and help small business owners; ministries and Fortune 500 companies to be more successful. Alli joins us to talk about her new book, The Year of Living Happy, Finding Contentment and Connection in a Crazy World! Alli says “with this new book, God gave me the word happy. At first, I thought it was silly because I thought God doesn’t allow us to be happy. But He kept putting it on my heart, so I spent a year of my life studying what scripture tells us about happiness. Many of us grow up in a church culture that says to know joy is to be Holy in the Lord, but happiness is fleeting. Through my research in scripture, I found that there’s no distinction between joy and happiness.” Featured Guest No 2: Kay Wyma Kay Wills Wyma is a former White House staffer, an international banker, an entrepreneur, and a mom of five! She’s an author who writes about seeing beyond life’s pressures to navigate life and thrive together.

The messaging of the world leads us to shame, silence, and isolation. Instead of recognizing our kids’ unique qualities, as parents, sometimes we act like we want our kids to “be great” at everything. But this messaging is “not the boss of us”, as guest author Kay Wyma discusses today. Kay reminds us of our phenomenal worth and value, and how believing that identity for ourselves helps fuel us to lead our kids to living out their identity. She calls us to stop valuing our children based on performance, and instead call in truth to point them back to their precious worth to God, and to how loved and uniquely gifted they are to Him.

Today my friend and vodcast host, Kay Wyma, and I are thrilled to chat with the one and only Chewbacca Mom, Candace Payne. Listen in as Candace gives us a glimpse into more of her story.  And talks about finding satisfying joy in all of life’s circumstances. Happiness brings instant gratification based on things that happen to us… Joy’s that thing that satisfies and lasts beyond [circumstances]. What we chat about: How joy informs who we are “behind the mask.” Finding joy in the little things… like a Chewbacca mask in the clearance aisle of Kohl’s. Overcoming adversity by choosing positivity. The two types of joy and where we can find true satisfaction. Changing a “never” list to an “always” list. Choosing hope over fear, and thriving even when the worst-case happens. What can happen when you stop living in anxiety. Fighting comparison, the frenemy of joy.

What if your son can't read as he enters first grade? What if your daughter prefers wrestling to ballet? What if your living room sofa has a couple rips and stains from a decade of use? These things shouldn't be a big deal. But then you notice your friend's first grade boy is reading chapter books. . . and her daughter gracefully glides into class with a giant bow on her head . . . and their living room just got a make-over with coordinating floor-to-ceiling curtains. Personally? My feelings of "less than" often start at a place of comparison. I know I shouldn't compare. I know it doesn't make me feel good. Yet day after day I glance around making sure I keep pace with the Joneses. How do I move past comparison to contentment? And even more important, how do I get to a place where I can celebrate her athletic child or new couch or beach vacation? Well, today's podcast guest, Kay Wyma, shines a light on the age old comparison problem and guides us to a better place of connection and true community. In Kay's latest book, "I'm Happy for You (Sort Of . . .Not Really)", she helps readers find contentment in a culture of comparison. "Looking at what we lack prevents us from noticing how sweet the world already is. But when we shift our focus from what could be to what actually is, we find extraordinary joy in our ordinary lives."  I've been a big Kay fan since a dinner party over six years ago.  As I sat hugely pregnant with our 3rd son, she encouraged me in my role as young mom. Kay is authentic, brilliant and refreshing.  My hope is her wisdom and practical tips in this episode help you stop comparing and draw you closer to the women you interact with daily. What we chat about: Encouraging one another by running alongside, instead of determined to "win" Focusing on "being together" more than hosting the perfect dinner party Being our best instead of being "the best", discovering our "you"-niqueness How a "mental" computer reboot (cnt/alt/del) helps fight comparison Whose light is revealing your reflection (& the Kylie Jenner Challenge) How to help our kids navigate social media and speak life to their friends How our friends can help us "reboot" the messages we believe. How to enter back-to-school with fresh perspective, moving from comparison to compassion (repurposing school supplies). Why I can never look at an Instagram pic of feet on the beach the same way.

You might be a “Snowplow Partent”. Come listen to author Kay Wyma share about Comparison and Entitlement. Despite good intentions, many people in today’s culture foster a sense of entitlement in their children through comparison. Comparison, according to author Kay Wyma, was the tool used in the fall. The narcissism from which entitlement stems, Wyma says, can be cured by learning to look at those around us, rather than what they have.
