Tsh Oxenreider on slow living as a wandering homebody

By Jackrabbit.FM

The last time Tsh Oxenreider appeared on the poggie, she and her family had just returned to the States after a year-long, round-the-world adventure. In the 18 months since, Tsh has turned her family’s adventure in to a beautiful new book called ‘At Home in the World’ where she talks about the paradox of being a wandering homebody - someone who feels at home on the road but also yearns for the deep roots of community. In today’s episode Brooke and Tsh talk about that tension, and the freedom she discovered when she embraced both sides of her personality - the homebody and the wanderer - and why she is now happy to be deep in a home phase of life as she and her husband renovate an old house in a small Texas town. They also talk about community and what it means to Tsh. Her definition, “A place where we know, and are known,” leads them to the topic of finding community in a new place. How can you cultivate community in a place you’re new to? And also, how can you feel part of a community if you’re only going to be there for a few weeks? Brooke also takes the opportunity to ask Tsh one of the questions she’s asked most commonly: how to encourage older kids (tweens and teens, specifically) to embrace a simpler way of life. Tsh’s eldest daughter is now 12, so it’s helpful to hear her views on how best to encourage simplicity in kids that age, while also accepting that there will be tension on occasion. Such a great, wide-ranging conversation that may have you both yearning for adventure and completely content with life at home.    Head over to for the full blog post, and enjoy!    ==== If you're enjoying the show and want to know how to best support it, leave a rating or a review in iTunes or head over to the Patreon page to help support the show financially.
