#225 | 8 Habits for Reimagining Productivity, Resisting Hurry, and Practicing Peace with Jen Pollock Michel, Pt. 2

Part 2 of our conversation with Jen Pollock Michel as we continue to discuss her book, In Good Time. We are all busy, and have a hard time cultivating the habits that enable both being and doing. If we can’t cultivate good habits, we have a harder time fulfilling God’s mission.

In this episode, Travis and Jenn discuss some of the seven deadly sins, and how our contemporary online lives are often guilty of the sin of vainglory, and our constant scrolling is a form of the ancient sin of acedia. We need to address these sins and cultivate habits that enable godliness.

She is the author of five books: A Habit Called FaithSurprised by Paradox (winner of Christianity Today’s 2020 Award of Merit for Beautiful Orthodoxy), Keeping Place, and Teach Us to Want (winner of Christianity Today’s 2015 Book of the Year).
