Episode 9: What I’ve Learned from Watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix

I want to talk about the Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. The decluttering method that has swept our nation and is changing lives and causing conflict among us all. The sides have been taken and the swords are clanging.

I’m kidding.

Sort of.

But seriously, I’ve seen so many articles and memes flying around the internet that I thought a podcast episode would be a good way to share some of my thoughts as well as some thoughts on how to navigate what is fashionable in our culture with the life-changing truth of Jesus.

What I've learned from watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix (a Christian perspective).

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • An exhortation to be known for what you stand for rather than what you stand against
  • Why this show has hit a nerve and what we can do with this information as Christians
  • Lessons I’ve learned from watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix

    If you’re new to podcasts, think of them like little radio shows that you can listen to at your convenience. They are perfect to listen to and learn from as you workout, fold laundry, commute to work, or wash dishes. We’ve found even our children enjoy having a podcast on in the background as they play.

    1. Thank you! I love how positive, practical, and encouraging you are, and how you weave Scriptural Truth throughout. This is my first time ever listening to a podcast, although I follow your blog. I’m not an aural learner, so I’ve never had an interest in podcasts, but you’ve changed my mind. Thank you for your positive approach. It’s very needed in Christendom today.

      1. Whoo hoo! I’m glad you enjoyed it and plan to listen more in the future. We do have a plan for getting these podcasts into transcripts, but you know…the list is quite long of the ideals I want to accomplish each day. 🙂 I’m really glad you enjoyed it.

    2. Thank you for your honest podcast. I watched some Netflix episodes and think that the base concept is very helpful. What stood out to me is that people have this emotional connection with their belongings; and it’s very true in this materialistic society. I felt that it highlights what holds us back from taking responsibility and being accountable for ourselves and our life. Sometimes we hide behind “things” instead of taking the emotions and problems to the Lord. There is nothing wrong with being human, but being human in Christ makes all the difference!
