    Checking in with yourself

    Checking in with yourself

    During this extraordinary time of pandemic, we will take time for an extended check in as well as a brief body scan. You will be invited to explore the current landscape of your heart in conversation with God. If you have done nothing else for yourself today or even this week, please take some time to check in on how you are doing. Wishing you all the grace in these strange days.

    WTF Prayers

    WTF Prayers

    How do we pray when life is too much, too hard, too sad, too...? Many of us were raised to keep on with the good girl prayers even when we are totally devastated. Instead, let me suggest WTF prayers. The Psalms are full of them! Warning I will use the F-bomb in this episode while sharing about my own experience, so please decide if that fits for you.

    Lectio Divina with Psalm 139 Part 4

    Lectio Divina with Psalm 139 Part 4

    Today we are going to dive into part 4 of this series on Psalm 139 using Lectio Divina. This particular passage is not for the faint of heart. David is going to get ugly, which is quite jaring after such a lovely and lofty hymn to God. I wonder do we have some of these same kind of less than attractive places in our own hearts. Spoiler, yes, but I promise God can handle it.

    Lectio Divina with Psalm 139 Part 3

    Lectio Divina with Psalm 139 Part 3

    Today we will sit with part 3 of Psalm 139 using Lectio Divina. As a trigger warning, I will mention this section includes “fearfully and wonderfully made,” and we will consider how that sits with those of us who have lost children in utero.

    Lectio Divina with Psalm 139 Part 2

    Lectio Divina with Psalm 139 Part 2

    Today we will look at the second strophe or stanza of Psalm 139. In this section of the psalm, David ponders just how pervasive God's presence is. What will it be like to consider God's willingness to be present with you in anything, anywhere?

    We'd love to hear about your experience on the faith like a mom Facebook page!

So refreshing

When I first found this podcast I put it off for a while cause I thought it was another mom podcast to listen to about all the things I’m not doing as a mom. When I finally got around to it I was pleasantly surprised to find it’s totally different. It’s about supporting me as a person not just a mom. Her voice is so soothing and each episode is encouraging and refreshing. I now look forward to listening to each episode instead of looking at it as another chore to do.

Soothing and enlightening

I love this podcast! It’s a great way to re-center for a few minutes, even in the busiest of days. Desiree’s compassion for moms is palpable, and her insights on different modes of prayer are helpful to explore conversation with God or reading the Bible in new ways. Such a gift!
