The Process of Healing with Kimberly June Miller

If you were dropped into an alpine meadow with a large picnic hamper full of C.S. Lewisesque fruits and foods, and your children, would you have the most delicious day of your life? Imagine this meadow has a stream, and you don't have a phone or a computer; it's you and your children in the most pristine and quiet setting imaginable. 

Would you have the best day of your life? Or would the silence and spacious emptiness of such a day make you feel uneasy? Do you think something important might not be getting done? For me, the thought of having such an unproductive day fills me with a low level of anxiety. 

What if in our busyness and overstimulation, we are missing an invitation to connect with Jesus? What if there is a level of Shalom on offer for our homes that requires us to prioritise empty space in our daily lives? 

Welcome to episode 74 with Kimberly June Miller, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. We've talked so much about becoming healthier as parents across the Restoration Home Podcast and I love this conversation because it is full of practical advice and compassion for parents.
