And then listen in to this conversation where we talk through the practicalities of paying attention to our thoughts, discerning what is helpful and unhelpful, and choosing to think differently.   Some highlights from our conversation: Gem identifies 7 voices that we tend to go to in our minds, like the Stressed Achiever or the Anxious Controller. We talk through what these voices sound like and why they all point to helpful things – even when the voices themselves aren’t helpful. Gem gives us a very practical tool: Notice, Discern and Respond. And walks us through how we can use this tool to navigate our thinking. We talk about how our thinking can transform us… just like Paul says it will in Romans 12:1-2: Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.   You can follow Gem on Instagram @gemfadling On Facebook: GemFadling And find out more about Unhurried Living at
