The Messy Table with Andra Pinkston [Ep. 44: Pursuing Life-Giving Boundaries + Financial Freedom]

Well, Thanksgiving is officially over and the Christmas season is here! But as my wise friend, Andra Pinkston, points out on today’s episode at The Messy Table: “We spend the next month overspending, overeating, and overcommitting ourselves—then we expect to fix it all in January.”

But, instead, what if we put ourselves on the offensive vs. the defensive? What if we prepare our hearts + minds to create life-giving boundaries, pursue financial freedom, and still cultivate a meaningful Christmas without breaking the bank?

“Jesus’ sacrifice was too great for us to live an enslaved life.” —Andra Pinkston

Andra is a pastor’s wife, boy-mama of three, work-from-home CPA, and a homeschooling mastermind. She and her husband, Greg, have weathered the narrow path to becoming debt-free, and she’s generously sharing some of her learned insight with us today. Y’all, I love this chat and I love, love, love her. So pop in those earbuds, grab your peppermint mocha, and join us at The Messy Table!
