How to Prioritize Scripture When Life is Busy w/Natale Abbott | Ep. 217

In this episode, we chat with Natalie Abbott who is the Co-Founder and Chief Content Officer at Dwell Differently. Natalie’s desire is to help women find ways to meditate and memorize the truth of God’s Word all throughout their day—and the work they are doing at Dwell Differently captures this desire in the way they provide tools for Scripture memory. 

Natalie shares how she incorporates Scripture into her busy life as an executive, writer, podcaster, pastor’s wife, and mother to five. She encourages flexibility and grace and offers practical tips to fitting Scripture reading and memory into your everyday life. She reminds us that hiding the truth of God’s Word in our hearts will reap rewards and benefits for years to come. Come chat with us about how to prioritize Scripture when life is busy!
