Persistence in Prayer with Kylie Hein

Kylie Hein

Raise your hand if you've ever...

Felt like  God was near, but couldn't figure out what he was asking you to do.

Questioned  why if you're doing God's will, your vocation seems SO stinking hard.

Dropped everything to help out a coworker, only to come home paralyzed by decision fatigue because you didn't touch your own to-do list.

My friend, you are in good company! If you are a fellow book buying, course-taking, love to do all-of-the-things while often getting stuck in a state of overwhelm kind of Catholic (or Christian), this is the place for you!

Welcome to the Persistence in Prayer podcast, hosted by Catholic Mindset Coach, wife, mother, educator, and speaker, Kylie Hein.  This podcast is where Christian women learn to create space from their circumstances and obligations, so that they can show up mentally present with those that need them most. We explore the beauty and simplicity of life that comes as a result of persistence in prayer, as well as all of the daily trials that come with living a life rooted in Christ.

If you're in a valley and need a friend, we're here. If you're on a peak and ready to shout out your wins to the world, we're here for that too!

Here, you will learn to cultivate a deeper sense of trust in God's plan for your life so that you have clarity in His calling and the courage to go wherever he leads. If you long to give God a more prominent place in your life, but you aren't sure where to begin, stick around. Being a high achiever and having a deep, meaningful prayer life are not mutually exclusive. You don't have to sacrifice your one-on-one time with God to meet the demands of your job, your family, or your schedule. You have a choice. Your fresh start to freedom may be just one episode away.

Are you the type of person who finds themself leaning on a shovel and praying for a hole? As in, you pray fervently for what you desire, but aren't sure about the work required to achieve it.Or, are you perhaps, the woman who's already dug a multitude of holes and you're screaming out to God wondering how many are left before He sends help?

In this episode, Sterling Jaquith and I offered help for both of these women! We discuss the honest reality of what it feels like to be a Catholic and a mom in the world today. We dive into the challenges and blessings of finding moments of silence and surrender as we swim upstream against a fast-pace and overstimulated society. We also tackle common tendencies busy Catholic women utilize to overcomplicate life, while offering solutions to learning to hear God's voice, even in the midst of "state-fair" overwhelm.Come join us this week as we talk about the beautiful struggle of being Catholic, how to breathe when you feel like running away, and how to stop draining yourself by thinking about doing things, rather than actually doing them.Connect With Kylie HeinVirtual Coffee Chat!

Welcome to another episode of Persistence in Prayer! Do you ever find yourself yearning for a day of pure relaxation, free from the demands of your bustling life? Well, you're not alone. In today's episode, we're diving into the art of rest – and trust me, it's way better than a nap!I often oscillate between two extremes. On one hand, I'm in full-on beast mode, tackling tasks, learning, helping others – sleep is optional. On the flip side, there are days when I just want to escape, lie in bed, and avoid the world with my trusty phone. Burnout and overwhelm? Yeah, they're familiar companions.But here's the catch – rest wasn't something I prioritized for a long time, and maybe you can relate. This week, as we embrace the season of Advent and its spirit of waiting, we're delving into the importance of rest. And guess what? The Lord commands it.Join me and the wonderful Roxsan DeVera of meekandhumble.com as we unpack what true rest looks like, especially for people-pleasers, achievers, and everyone navigating life's hustle.Rest is where we lean on the Lord, finding sustenance and support. So, whether you're a go-getter or a quiet observer, learn with us how to reclaim rest, just as God intended. And in case you're still wondering what's better than a nap – spoiler alert: it's resting with Jesus!

Episode 34: Is Judgment Ever Justified?
Welcome to another episode of Persistence in Prayer! In this episode, we delve deep into a topic that touches us all, whether we like to admit it or not: judgment. We've all done it, silently sizing up others or ourselves, but have you ever considered the weight of those judgments in the confessional?On a recent 3:00 AM drive home from adoration, Father Larry's radio talk struck a chord. He reminded me that judgment is a constant companion, whether we're scrutinizing others or ourselves. Join me as we explore the concept of judgment. What does it mean? What insights does scripture offer on this universal human tendency? Are we all guilty of passing judgment, even when we claim otherwise? And with the holidays just around the corner, the timing couldn't be more pertinent. How does the season of celebration and togetherness intersect with our tendency to judge? Can understanding and managing our judgments enhance our holiday experiences and relationships?So, whether you're due for confession or simply curious about the role of judgment in your life, this episode invites you to explore, reflect, and perhaps gain a deeper understanding of a topic we all grapple with. Tune in and join us as we navigate the complex terrain of judgment in this thought-provoking episode.Free WorkshopSign up HERE  Next Steps:Set up a free Exploration Call with Kylie: https://kyliemhein.kartra.com/calendar/ExplorationCall Connect on Instagram: @kyliemheinSend an email: info@kyliemhein.comSupport the show
