In a culture trying to sell us the lie that we should be anything but “just a mom”, the Joy Filled Podcast exists to come alongside you and help you thrive in this season at home and experience the fullness of joy in the simplicity of homemaking and raising a family. The early years of motherhood are hard, but they’re so so good. I’m determined to give these ‘good old days’ everything I’ve got and I’m bringing you along with me. We’ll host honest conversations on faith, motherhood, homemaking, and everything in between. My prayer is that you leave encouraged in Christ, equipped to carry the weight of motherhood with joy, and reminded of the truth that God has given you everything you need to steward your arrows well. There is so much joy here. Let’s experience it together.

Working Through Overwhelm & Getting Back to God’s Design For Motherhood | Michelle Donnelly

If you are struggling with overwhelm in motherhood and wondering if there’s a way to move past it, or if you doubt that God is really at work in the midst of your overwhelm, then you will love getting to hear from our guest Michelle today. Michelle is a single mom and founder of PlusONE Parents, a ministry for single parents and she is no stranger to overwhelm and how isolating and crippling it can often feel. Michelle and I share a lot of our own experiences with overwhelm in motherhood and how it shows up in different ways, sometimes without even really being aware of it. We also discuss the world’s definition of “more” and the biblical definition of “more” and how that changes how we approach motherhood, how the enemy uses our overwhelm against us, and how God works through our overwhelm to invite us into more with him.


If you haven’t experienced overwhelm as a mom yet, there will probably be a time when you do and when that time comes, you’ll want to have the truth that Michelle shares in this episode tucked in your heart.


More about Michelle:

Michelle Donnelly is the President and CEO of PlusONE Parents, a ministry devoted to

helping single parents overcome overwhelm to rebuild God-empowered lives and raise

up a new generation. A mother of three, Michelle is also the host of The Christian Single

Moms Podcast and author of Safe Haven: A Devotional for the Abused & Abandoned,

and Made for More: Life Beyond the Wreckage of Hurt, Loss, & Heartbreak. Learn more

Mom Anxiety: How to Work Through Anxious Moments and Get Back to a Place of Peace

Whether you’re a seasoned mom or a brand new mama, you’ve probably experienced mom anxiety at some point. Anxiousness, stress, and worry show up a lot in motherhood and it can be difficult to handle when you don’t know what to do with those feelings. Personally, I experienced postpartum anxiety after having my first baby and still to this day have moments where those anxious thoughts pop back up and I’m forced to face them.


The good news is, we don’t have to face these things alone and the Bible is very clear about how we should approach our anxieties. Today we’re diving into the topic of mom anxiety, how it shows up in our lives, and what practical things we can do to move through those anxious moments and come back to a place of peace. (because yes, it’s more than just saying “don’t worry!”)

8 Ways Moms Can Make Money From Home

Making the decision to be a stay at home mom comes with a lot of sacrifices, and for a lot of us it means becoming a one income family. Maybe being a stay at home mom was always your plan and you prepared to be a one income family, maybe you never thought you’d leave your job but here you are longing for more time with your kids and a way to replace your income, or maybe you’re somewhere in between and your family income is okay, but a little extra money would be nice.


Wherever you land, today I am going to give you some ideas on how to make money from home without building a personal brand, becoming an influencer, or joining a social selling company. Because while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with those options, those definitely aren’t the only options out there.

3 Tips to Overcome Boredom and Have More Fun as a Stay at Home Mom

Do you ever get bored as a stay at home mom? So much of what you do in your day to day life is repetitive - same books, same routines, and if your kids are anything like mine… cooking the same three meals because you know it’s what they’ll actually eat.

All this repetition can easily make it feel like this season of life is dull, boring, and even a waste of time. So often I hear, and I’m sure you’ve heard it too (or maybe even said it!), “I could never be a stay at home mom! I’d get so bored!”. Today, we’re gonna flip the belief that being a stay at home mom means leading a boring life on its head so you can begin to actually, genuinely, enjoy your life and all this season with your kids has to offer.

Choosing Faith Over Fear No Matter What with Heidi Lee Anderson

“What if I don’t have what it takes?”

“What do I do when God feels silent?”

“What if God’s promises don’t line up with my reality?”

“What about when the worst-case happens?”


If you’ve ever asked yourself any of these questions, you’re in good company. Today on the podcast, author and speaker Heidi Lee Anderson is sharing with us how we can choose FAITH over FEAR - no matter what.


Heidi is a writer, speaker, and stay-at-home mom. While crafting Instagram devotionals @heidileeanderson and writing kid’s curriculum @thismotherhen and teaching biblical online courses, she’s a master at cleaning up Cheerios spills and building LEGO towers while simultaneously chugging coffee like a Gilmore. Heidi has a bachelor’s degree in marketing from University of Northwestern, MN, and has spent her career doing ministry—from teaching hundreds in kids’ ministry to writing daily devotionals, Bible reading plans, and small group curriculum as a content developer. After being diagnosed with cancer, Heidi’s fuel is now to make sure that Christ-followers realize, know, and claim the sure promises God offers—in the mundane, amid the heartache, and on top of the highest mountains.


Are you ready to choose faith over fear? Grab your coffee, get ready to laugh and be encouraged, and listen in to this conversation with Heidi Lee Anderson.

The Power of a Praying Parent

How often do you pray for your kids? Like, really pray intentional, intercessory prayers for them, not just the bedtime prayers or the prayers at mealtimes? For most of us, if we were honest the answer would be not very often. Today, we’re talking through why being a praying parent is vital for our children and how prayer actually impacts not only them, but the generations to come after them.

4 Reasons You Need Community, ESPECIALLY as a Stay at Home Mom

Motherhood can be a very lonely time for so many of us. It’s hard to make friends as an adult, and it’s even harder to make friends as a mom. Most of the time, it can feel like it’s not even worth the effort to try to find good friends in this season of life, especially because it can feel like everyone else has already found their community. But the truth is this: we weren’t made to do life alone. In fact, the first thing God said wasn’t good, was being alone. We were created for community, we’re better when we’re in community, and we need community. Plain and simple.

Join me as we discuss why community is so vital and how to find true, meaningful connections in this season of your life.

Ditching Anxiety and Exhaustion for Fulfillment and Freedom with Amy Seiffert

Amy Seiffert is no stranger to the empty, shameful, anxious feelings that social media often leaves us with.


Amy knows that so many of us feel dissatisfied and empty—emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. Our lives are rushed, overflowing, and we’re low on joy, fulfillment, peace, and purpose. In our spare moments, we turn to our phones, social media, and a million other little things, desperate for relief, but over time, these distractions become an unhealthy diet for our souls—uplifting us for a moment but ultimately denying us the nourishment we need. When we over consume these imposters that promise a temporary boost but actually leave us weak and weary, we become anxious, fearful, and depleted. These addicting substitutes keep us coming back for more, never providing satisfaction.


But, Amy reminds us, there is hope. We don’t have to stay stuck and malnourished. We can become free of shame, disappointment, and anxiety.


Today, Amy Seiffert shares with us how to stop ingesting spiritual junk food and offers simple and replenishing practices like silence, service, and Sabbath that can bring us closer to Jesus. She encourages us to put down our phones, set aside our pride, and let go of the hustle so that we can receive a spiritual diet change that will leave us delightfully content, spiritually healthy, and free to experience the goodness of Jesus.

Feeling Guilty for Needing a Minute to Yourself? Here’s How to Rest GUILT FREE

Have you ever felt guilty for taking time away from your family to rest, recharge, or do something for yourself? Even if it’s just 30 minutes, there can often be so much guilt that surfaces when we as moms take time away from our families. Maybe it’s society, maybe it’s how we were raised, maybe it’s brought on by our own inner dialogues and expectations for ourselves, but for some reason, there seems to be this unspoken rule that moms aren’t allowed to think of themselves.

So today, we're diving into why we seem to neglect rest, why rest is important, and how to rest the right way.

Finding God In The Mundane Moments Of Motherhood

How can we see God even in the messy mundane moments of motherhood? The answer might be more simple than you think. See, it’s easy to feel far from God in this season of life – you’re busy, you’re tired, you hardly have a moment to yourself these days. But God’s Word promises us that if we seek Him, we will find Him. The more we look for Him, the more we’ll begin to see evidence of His goodness all over our lives. Yes, even in the chaos and the mess.

3 simple ways to connect with your kids and invite more joy into your home

I don’t know about you, but the older my kids get the more I find myself feeling like I hardly even look them in the eyes some days. They are busy toddlers moving from one thing to another at a million miles an hour and I get caught up wrestling babies and chores and to do lists… it’s no wonder I feel like I miss them even when they’re right next to me all day.


It’s because we’re lacking true connection.


We are coexisting with our kids instead of connecting with them.


So on the podcast today I am sharing 3 easy ways to connect and have fun with your kids again and, I promise, they take little to no extra effort on your part! We are all about minimum effort, maximum results around here.
