    Troubleshooting Where We Go Wrong | Obedience .03

    Troubleshooting Where We Go Wrong | Obedience .03

    When it comes to obedience, we’re all prone to errors. Maybe we say “freedom in Christ!” to justify our actions instead of doing what we know is right, or maybe we live with a constant stream of condemning thoughts instead of resting in the righteousness of Christ. Some of us put off obedience until tomorrow, and some of us are locked in a cycle of despair when we can’t obey perfectly today. In this episode, Laura and Emily talk through the common ditches we find ourselves in as moms, and give practical strategies for getting out of them. So whether you’re procrastinating and trying to avoid the sink full of dishes or you’re grumpy and muscling through to “get the job done,” we hope you’ll find encouragement to walk the true path of obedience.

    Knowing God’s Will Is Not As Hard As You Think | Obedience .02

    Knowing God’s Will Is Not As Hard As You Think | Obedience .02

    Deep down, we want to know we’re doing motherhood right. That we’re not failing or heading down the wrong path in life. This is true for our everyday choices about meals, screens, activities, and the way we spend our time. But it’s also true for how we work through tough relationships, respond to our kid’s hard questions, and make life-changing decisions. How do we know God’s will? In today’s episode, Emily and Laura tackle this question, because it’s not as complicated as you might think! We often wonder if we’re on track, but God’s word doesn’t leave us in the dark. He reveals his design, giving us clear commands, wise principles for life, and a framework for living like Christ in each situation.

    Obedience Isn’t Just For Our Kids | Obedience .01

    Obedience Isn’t Just For Our Kids | Obedience .01

    Obedience. That’s an outdated word, right? But really, our questions in motherhood about where to send our kids to school, what to feed them, and even how we spend our time and money, boils down to this. We don’t want to fail, so we wonder what to obey, how to obey, and how to keep going when we stumble. Essentially, we want to know what it looks like to live ‘Risen Motherhood’—to do all things in a way that please God. This is what we’re exploring in our new mini-series. In the first episode, Emily and Laura tackle these questions and explain why obedience brings freedom. We want to be good moms, and obedience to Christ’s commands is the place to start.

    Fear 06: The Meditation

    Fear 06: The Meditation

    When you’re afraid, it’s so helpful to rehearse God’s word. But it can be hard to find a quiet place, or even time, to read and think about what God’s promises mean for your situation. Moms have a lot of demands on their time, so we’ve put together an entire episode designed to help you meditate on God’s word. In this episode, Emily reads a collection of scriptures on fear. So whether you’re scrubbing toilets, driving to work, or even on a walk, we pray these scriptures lift your eyes to the Lord as you face your fears.

    Fear 05: The Replay

    Fear 05: The Replay

    What would happen if we were prepared for the storms of life? What would it look like to cultivate faith that can weather a job loss, or a child’s illness, or our friends rejecting us for our faith? In this episode, we have a special treat—a message from Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth on being a woman who trusts the Lord in the face of fear. Teaching from Proverbs 31:21-25, she encourages us to be proactive—not reactive—to the storms of life.  If you’re looking for practical help in facing your fears, or ever wanted to understand what it means to be a true Proverbs 31 woman, this message is for you!

JUST what busy moms need

This podcast has helped me know how the heck to be a Christian woman and mom in a world that is growing more and more secular. The hosts are so warm, funny, and talk about big questions in the universe without making things too complicated. You feel like you’re tuning in to your mom friends at playgroup, except you’re all growing a little closer to God in the process. Thanks for making this podcast, it has helped me so much! When I get a break from my son in the morning I have my shower and then listen to you guys, it helps to settle me into a Godly mindset for the day. And laugh usually too! :)

Great podcast for moms looking to be challenged and encouraged in their faith

This podcast has been an encouragement to me over the past few years in motherhood. Emily and Laura are real, they love Jesus and they know their stuff! This podcast has spurred me along and encouraged me during some hard seasons in life. I love how it always points back to the gospel and how we can grow spiritually.
