About this Episode

Inspired by Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, I’ve been thinking a lot about all the areas in my life that need decluttering. It’s not just my home that is in need of tidying, but also my digital space, and (most importantly) my spiritual space.

To that end, I’m issuing a decluttering challenge for these three spaces—Marie Kondo style. Listen in to hear the challenges and change your life!

Have feedback or an idea to share? I would love to hear from you!


  1. Declutter your living space - I’ve been working on decluttering my home, and I want to encourage you to do the same. Remember Marie’s rule: if it doesn’t spark joy, then get rid of it.

Challenge #1
Deep clean a space in your home you have been putting off or avoiding.

Challenge #2
Deep clean a storage space in your home.

  1. Declutter your digital space - Maybe you don’t often think about the ways in which your digital spaces clutter your life, but this week I want to challenge you to think about this.

Challenge #1
Track your screen time on your phone.

Challenge #2
Clean up the home screen on your phone and/or laptop to make it cleaner and more useful.

  1. Declutter your spiritual space - What is weighing you down spiritually? What can you do to let go of the burden?

    Challenge #1
    Go to confession!

    Challenge #2
    Forgive someone, or ask for forgiveness.
