I first met Kathi Lipp four years ago for a cup of coffee, when I was first began thinking about writing a book proposal. Kathi is popular speaker and author of a new book I Need Some Help Here: Hope When Your Kids Don’t Go According to Plan. She was the only published author I knew locally here in Silicon Valley with a string of books under her belt. So, I when I asked a friend of a friend to introduce us, I grabbed the chance to have coffee with her and share our stories.
Now, four years later, Kathi invited me to be a guest today on her podcast show “So Here’s The Thing with Kathi Lipp“ for a cup of virtual coffee and some soul-to-soul talk about my new book Finding Spiritual Whitespace.
I hope you enjoy the podcast! It’s my first podcast sharing about the book, so you’re getting me “as is”. Thanks for your support as I make this journey to share my story, with the faith that this story is all of our stories. We all long for rest. So, you’re with me. I carry all the stories you’ve shared with me on Whitespace Thursdays, when you comment and email me.
I read your words and your stories — and my heart is a little braver each time, reminding me I’m not alone on this journey of faith.
Enjoy the Podcast
Bonnie Gray wrote this amazing book, Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest, and after I read it, I had, had to, HAD TO, sit down and talk to her. In this world of go go go, do more, do it all well and don’t forget to look amazing doing it, this book is powerful reminder that finding rest is not a luxury but a necessity.
Bonnie and I discuss our typical coping mechanisms, our fear of not being valuable, of doing it all and doing it well or feeling like a failure, and ways to shift the paradigm not only in our own lives, but the lives of those around us.
If you wonder:
– what is my value
– would anyone love me or like me if I stopped “doing”
– how can I recharge when there is no end in sight
– how much more can I give
then this podcast is absolutely for you. Give yourself permission to listen to our conversation, then move towards finding your inner whitespace.

Take The Journey of Rest With Me
Take the Finding Spiritual Whitespace journey to make space to rest, despite whatever chaos and stress clutters our everyday lives.
Take the journey of self-discovery with Jesus with journal prompts for individual or intimate group exploration. Let’s live a better story of rest. Together.
Purchase a copy of my memoir-driven guidebook for yourself and your friends. Because rest isn’t a journey we need to take alone. We need each other.
Because some stories can’t be told on a blog. They are so intimate, they can only echo in the sacred space of the printed page. Letters from my heart bound together for you.
Let’s be kindreds. Let’s meet between the pages of Finding Spiritual Whitespace.
