A weekly podcast for moms. A space to remember we are not alone in our experiences, be challenged to have joy among the chaos, remember grace covers guilt, and seek the truth of the gospel above all else. This is a podcast for the imperfect mother, still learning, still growing and still fully recognizing she doesn’t have it all together - but comes everyday, to the base of the cross, to seek the one who does.

    Change is a Good Thing, Part 2 | Ep. 164

    As much as we may desire to live with eternal purpose and become more like Christ, some days we’re doing well just to keep the diapers changed—much less figure out how we can change. In this episode, Emily and Laura get practical about how we change into the image of Christ. Drawing from David Powlison’s book, How Does Sanctification Work?, they unpack five things that contribute to our growth in godliness. God is changing us and using our lives for something that matters as we live faithfully from one moment (or diaper change) to the next.

    Change is a Good Thing, Part 1 | Ep. 163

    As you make the meals, change the diapers, settle the arguments, and fold the laundry day after day, do you ever wonder if any of it really matters? With so many immediate needs in front of us, it can be easy to lose sight of our eternal purpose. In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss some simple (yet profound) truths that help clarify our destination and goal as believers in Christ. When we remember that we’re being conformed to the image of Jesus and one day we’ll dwell with him for eternity, we can hold things loosely in this life and embrace our role as servants doing the Master’s work—even if it’s the same work day after day.

    John Piper’s Encouragement for Moms in Suffering | Ep. 162

    John Piper’s Encouragement for Moms in Suffering | Ep. 162

    Read alouds aren’t just for our little ones. We can find great encouragement and joy in having the word of God read over us and explained. So in this special episode, Emily and Laura invite John Piper to read and reflect on what he considers to be the greatest chapter in the Bible, Romans 8. As he walks us through this incredible passage, John Piper connects its themes of suffering and loss to motherhood, encouraging us that no matter how deep the waters of our suffering, God’s unshakeable love is deeper still.

    Walking in the Spirit: An Interview on Faithful Motherhood with Jani Ortlund | Ep. 160

    Motherhood comes with lots of hard things—but by God’s grace, those very things can bring fruit in our lives. In this episode, Emily and Laura interview Jani Ortlund about some of the hard things she faced as a mom of young children, like fatigue, fear, and finances. Jani is a writer, speaker, and podcast host who ministers alongside her husband, Ray. She is a mother of four and grandmother of fourteen who remembers well the challenges of the little years. In the midst of the hard, she encourages us to keep seeking the Lord, trusting that he will gently lead us.

So encouraging!

Laura and Emily are amazing! I’m never left feeling discouraged after listening to this podcast. It brings such hope, encouragement, and wise instruction for mommas. I was really struggling to find a podcast on motherhood that spoke love and life into all moments of motherhood, even the mundane and this one has been amazing! Thank you for all you do Emily & Laura!

Help on seeing how the gospel of Jesus Christ relates to everyday life!

This podcast has been a treasured help in my desire to understand how knowing Jesus Christ affects my daily life - and even better, how to actually put that into words for conversation with others! When I first started listening, I kept thinking, “How are these girls doing this?? How are they cutting through all the confusion that complex issues can bring? How are they speaking so clearly about the ways the gospel brings hope to every area of our lives? How are they putting helpful truth concisely, while still acknowledging the complexity of these issues?” Emily and Laura have been come-alongside style teachers; helping me learn how to look at struggles, joys, and questions with the Creation-Fall-Redemption-Consumation framework in mind. I have been putting off writing this review because I feel like whatever I say will not accurately describe how it has influenced my life. Emily and Laura, you are dear sisters in the faith. THANK YOU for having the courage and spending the energy to share your thoughtful conversations with us so that we can grow in these ways. I’m a Minnesotan living in Canada who loves to hear some sweet mid-west twang when I’m homesick! That has been just a fun bonus to all I have learned from you both!
