The Art of Simple Podcast, episode 71 with Nish Weiseth

#71: Your (little) story matters

New podcast time! In this episode, I talk with my friend Nish Weiseth, founder and editor-in-chief of Deeper Story, a faith-based community blog about the power of story.

We talk about why story matters, and that it’s not always the big, monumental epic adventures that change lives—our little, everyday stories matter. We also talk about Tuscany, Italy, parenting special-needs children, and Nish’s new book, Speak: How Your Story Can Change the World.

FOMO: it’s a real thing

While we were in Tuscany, the group of us debated sharing photos on Instagram. I sometimes have a knee-jerk response (often emotional) to a type of oversharing that happens at events where I either know several people attending, or I really, really wanted to be there. And I didn’t want to cause that in other (read more…)
