#134: Just Open the Door with Jen Schmidt

For the last decade, Jen Schmidt has been encouraging, challenging, and cheering on women to embrace both the beauty and bedlam of their everyday lives on her popular lifestyle blog, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. With a variety of topics—from easy dinner ideas and personal finance to leaving a legacy—Jen equips others to live life to its fullest, reminding them it's the little things that really are the big things in life. A popular speaker, worship leader and founder/host of the annual Becoming Conference, Jen shares with humor and authenticity as she invites others to join her on this bumpy, beautiful life journey. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, five children, a few too many animals, and an available sofa for anyone who needs it.

What we chat about:

  • giving her newly married son and daughter-in-law space
  • intentional decisions for building family relationships
  • making your home a safe place for your children's friends
  • the importance of preserving quality family time 
  • breaking generational parenting patterns
  • allowing insecurities prevent us from building community
