Episode 110: Are You Fueled By FOMO or Faith?

Are You Fueled by FOMO or Faith?

Have you ever taken a step you thought was the right one … then it wasn’t? Or maybe you’ve made decisions based more on FOMO than faith. Those are just two of the things my friend Avery Forrest and I talked about, along with a little fashion advice. So join me for Episode 110 of Just One Simple Thing, as we ask are you fueled by FOMO or faith?

I’m so glad you are here because you are in for a treat! In the last episode, I shared part 1 of a conversation I had with my friend Avery Forrest a few months ago all about managing your capacity. If you missed that, head back to Episode 109 to learn the capacity equation and some thoughts on reframing your boundaries.

But we talked about so much in that conversation, I couldn’t leave all of it behind. So I’ve grabbed the best bits and put them all together for you here. It may sound a little choppy, but I hope you’ll get something from this discussion about making good decisions AND bad ones, FOMO, and managing seasons.

In this episode, we discussed:

  • What to do when you take a step and get ahead of God
  • How to avoid getting too much on your plate
  • My two best tips for managing your capacity.

You can’t miss out on what God did not mean for you. ~ Avery Forrest

I’m so thankful that God has put people like Avery in my life to help me wrestle through some of these rough spots that could derail me from His plan.


We talked about the capacity management tool in this episode, so head over to my free Facebook group, Plan & Pray with Do A New Thing and grab a copy for yourself.

This little change of pace has been a lot of fun! I’d love to hear from you this week. What stood out to you during the episode? Snap a screen shot of the episode wherever you are listening and share it on social media.
