Parenting Pathway Podcast: Not the Boss of Us

We are back this week with the next episode of our Parenting Pathway Podcast. Pastor Dave Carl is having a conversion with author, entrepreneur, and mom Kay Wills Wyma about her new book, Not the Boss of Us: Putting OVERWHELMED in its Place in a Do-All, Be-All World. That’s a crazy long title, but Kay shares with us why she felt the need to write this book and why OVERWHELMED will not be the boss of her home any longer.

Being overwhelmed is a condition we can all relate to in the rush of our everyday over-scheduled lives. It can be caused by kids, errands, work projects, health issues, care for a parent or child, etc. It doesn’t matter what your to-do list looks like today, my guess is you feel overwhelmed, maybe even paralyzed by it. Kay, with a wicked sense of humor, shares with us tips and ideas to re-stack the priorities of our lives and find fulfillment and freedom anchored in Truth.

We’re the comic relief amidst loads of TRUTH that is so worth being overwhelmed by – especially in today’s environment, cultural trends, information overload, stress, pressures and so many other things that steal our thoughts and peace. Because the thing about TRUTH – it is, has been, and always will be the unshakeable, unmovable ground where peace and hope and joy reside.

We hope you’ll check it out, and consider sharing with your family and friends. It is available in your local book store or on Amazon (ttps://, and you can find details on Goodreads (
