Alexandra Kuykendall spends her days driving to multiple schools, figuring out what to feed her people and searching for a better solution to the laundry dilemma. Author of Loving My Actual Life: An Experiment in Relishing What’s Right in Front of Me and The Artist’s Daughter: A Memoir, Alex is co-hostess of The Open Door Sisterhood Podcast. A trusted voice in mothering circles, Alex speaks to women around the world about issues of parenting, faith and identity. She lives in the shadows of downtown Denver with her husband Derek and their four daughters.
IF YOU HAVE EVER WONDERED WHETHER GOD HAS GIVEN YOU A UNIQUE ASSIGNMENT IN LIFE, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
In this interview, Alex talks about the nine-month experiment that led her to write the book “Loving My Actual Life” including finding more quiet in her days and how she adjusted her family’s morning routine to give them a better start to their day. Alex is honest about the challenge it’s been to ask God for what she wants in the dream category. I can’t help but think she’s not the only one out there wrestling with the fear of sounding ungrateful or being disappointed if God said “no” to her request.
I know you’ll love hearing from Alex, the unique assignment God has given her in this life and the little ways she’s tweaked things so she can be more content right where she is right now.

“Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.”
~ Galatians 6:4-5 (MSG)
