A spacious life sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
But it can also feel unattainable.
I mean, how are we supposed to live spacious lives and still get everything done?

The truth is you will never get everything done. And another truth is - there is a different way to live.
A way of life that honors the boundaries God has graciously set for us.

Ashley Hales, author of Spacious Living: Trading Hustle and Hurry for the Goodness of Limits, helps us think through a different way to live.

Ashley Hales is a writer, speaker, and host of the Finding Holy podcast. She is the author of Finding Holy in the Suburbs and A Spacious Life her writing has been featured in Christianity Today, Books & Culture, and The Gospel Coalition.

Some highlights from our conversation:
  • Ashley reminds us that limits are good. They were established at creation – before Adam and Eve sinned. The truth is: God always intended for us to have limits. Discovering and honoring them brings freedom and peace.

  • Ashley finds it fascinating that another word for sin is trespass,which means to go beyond. Sin is ultimately moving beyond our good limits.

  • Ashley shares her personal story of discovering limits through the disorienting season of the pandemic, a job change, selling their home, and moving.

  • One of the things she discovered in this disorienting season is that God is most concerned with our formation. Helping us become more the people he’s created us to be.

  • A spacious life is not a perfectly curated life. And a spacious life isn’t something you will have some day after you’ve accomplished everything. The invitation to spacious living is for now, no matter what season you are in.

  • Ashley shares why Psalm 18 is important to her and how this verse reminds her that spacious living start with God’s gracious rescue.

  • Ashley gives a few practices that can help us start living in our limits. She suggests we start with a time of short silence in the presence of God. She also suggests community because our limits are exposed in community and healed in community.
