July 2019: Free For The Best


July is the month to be free to live our best.

The battle to live free begins in our mind.

It can be difficult to clearly see that an  unhealthy thought  has attached to the way life is managed.

Until . . .

It rises to the top.

The thing is . . .

It often begins as a random thought.

And . . .

It turns into a reaction, if, it’s not acknowledged or addressed.

Then . . .

It becomes a  routine ritual to repeat the thought as if, it is truth. 

Eventually . . . 

It’s processed as a self-proclaimed reality and a belief.  


It’s helpful to think through and write down a list of ongoing thoughts to determine what is and is not healthy.  Some thoughts are easier to tag as unhealthy than others:

  “I am not good enough to  . . . “

“If, only I could . . . then I would . . . ”

” This is never going to happen . . .

Ask Questions

Am I thinking the best about myself, others, and/or the outcome of a circumstance?

Is this the best?

Will this be the best?

Use The Grid

The three words describing Christ in John 14:6 provide a *grid to evaluate the thought.   Determine if the thought aligns with all three:

  1. The Way (Love)
  2. Truth (Love)
  3. Life  (Love)

Whatever thought elicits a “no” to this list needs to be further evaluated to see what needs to change and determine if, it needs to be removed.  It’s a simple, intentional, and freeing way to determine what thoughts keep us from the best.

Take A Moment

What is one reoccurring thought/belief that stirs you up and creates chaos within you?

 The unhealthy thought/belief:_________________

This unhealthy thought works in opposition to your best. The Way, Truth, and Life is always for your best (the Romans 8:31 principle).  These three words are a part of our belief system in the with-God life and become a soul-deep anchor, freeing us from the thoughts which oppose the best.

This is the month to have a strong resolve to break free of whatever prevents us from living our best and serving others to help them live their best.

It’s our mission to invest our time and energy in serving you with  inspiration and innovation to live your best.

Finally and most importantly, thank you for your support.  At this point we are relying on our friends and family to spread the word about TableThink.  We are blown away by your love, encouragement, and support.  Because of you, we’ve had 3,000 more downloads in the last month with a total of 27,000 downloads of the **Think On This podcast.  Thank you!

It’s all about being free to live our best ~Joshua & Kerrie

*The grid works well for all ages.

TableThink’s Weekly Rhythm, Routine, And Rituals 

Sunday is reserved for soul work. There is value in taking time to be still to know God as well as coming together around the table and sharing life.

Soul work necessitates time alone as well as time with one another.

The thing is . . .  soul work is key to living best . . .  but often is last on the list.

Sunday Soul Work: 

Monday is our day to ramp up and renew an element of living.  We recommend this practice for individuals, couples, and families as well as organizations.  This best practice serves who we are and what we do.

“Monday” Articles:

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday follow the theme of the week and month: inspired-living.

Friday Feature focuses on Your Tribe,TableRead, and TableThink Podcast As the traditional workweek ends, it’s key to get ready to shift into the weekend with inspiration to live the best.


Anne Miller is TableThink’s columnist for Your Tribe.  Anne’s writing takes us home, reminding us  of what really matters.  She invites you to the TableThink tribe . . . and to know it’s . . . Your Tribe.

Anne invites us: “I hope you will feel inspired to connect, reconnect, or get to know someone in your community, realizing it is not about entertaining – holding the attention of – it is about “being” together, sharing life and relationship.”


Tiffany Carter is TableThink’s columnist for TableRead.  Tiffany’s passion and expertise in reading underlines the importance of reading to live our best.

Tiffany shares with us:  “As a mom and a teacher, I am passionate about books and love talking with others about what to read and traditions around reading. I love hearing and sharing about what and how families read. I also believe in the power of conversation around books and stories. Reading can be a powerful experience- especially when it is a shared experience with others.”


We feature table conversations at our table.  We are excited for you to get to know the who takes a seat at our table and think on the interesting, inspiring, and informative discussions.  We grow when we think outside of our personal realm, broadening our perspective with inspiration.  We are working on our faith series and will be releasing a new look with our tablethink podcast. 

TableThink podcast can be found on our website as well as on itunes and podbean.

Saturday features the weekend slow-down. Taking a breath on the weekend, slowing down, and stepping back from the busyness of the week is smart living.   It takes effort and practice to make the weekend slow-down routine a part of life.  The thing is . . . as simple as it sounds . . . weekend slow-down serves our “why.”

One of the obstacles to the weekend slow-down is the lack of awareness of its overall healthy impact on every piece of life.

Thinking  through the things which lead to your best weekend slow-down generates motivation to make it happen. It’s helpful to use the specific elements to create a personalized weekend slow-down menu.

And . . . Think On This . . . devotional and podcast is released every. single. day. You can listen to Think On This on our website or on Alexaitunes, and podbean.

Begin your day with the Think On This podcast and devotion. 

There’s More . . . 

We continue to work on projects to be released by this summer.  We keep adding to our list, excited for what more can add to our best.
