I Have to be Supermom! : The Lies GOOD Moms Believe with Lisa Clark Love Where You Are with Somer Colbert

    • Religion & Spirituality

Welcome to my latest series, LIES GOOD MOMS BELIEVE! 
In today’s episode I am joined with Lisa Clark. Lisa co-hosts both The Wonder podcast and Raising Sinners podcast with our friends over at Christian Parenting where she encourages Moms weekly to raise their children by God’s Word. Together, we're tackling the lie: I have to be supermom! 
Lisa co-hosts both The Wonder podcast and Raising Sinners podcast with our friends over at Christian Parenting where she encourages Moms weekly to raise their children by God’s Word. 
Today’s hustle culture creates a never ending hamster wheel that gets us rushing from one thing to the next. It also creates an environment for us and our kids to find our identities in what we do and not who we are. 
Pretty soon we find ourselves and our families living life waiting for the next break instead of soaking up the mundane moments that build the culture and character of our family. And all because of this lie: the super mom. We wanted to be super mom and do the things the world defines as super!
In this episode, Somer and Lisa go over how we, as Christian moms, find balance in all the things and cultivate a God-centered home. 
I’m so grateful you are joining me today! Let’s dive in!
You can connect with Lisa through Instagram! Also her website. 
You can also check out her book Raising Sinners as well as her podcast of the same name, Raising Sinners on Christian Parenting.

FAVORITE TAKE-AWAYS:
Our kids need love, tenderness, devotion, discipline, structure
We have the best intentions but super mom does not exist - and if she does, she’s exhausted, she’s anxious, she’s tired and she really is missing out on those mundane moments of the day. Those mundane moments of the day are where memories are made.
There is nothing in scripture that encourages us to hustle.
We need to understand that we are the vessel that God is using to get to His children, to bring His children back to Him.
Make a list of things I’m doing to prepare my child for eternity vs. Things I’m doing to prepare my child for life - which one is more full?
I don’t want to raise my kids and my family and be in that “I can’t wait until…” mentality. I want to be present.
If you’re feeling defeated, that’s a lie from the enemy. Whatever we are walking through as parents, God is greater.
A lot of these things that are causing you to be stressed out and feeling less than are not things that your kids ever asked of you as Mom.
 
SCRIPTURE:
Deuteronomy 6
1 Corinthians 10:31
Romans 8:18
 
REMINDERS: 
You’re not missing a thing - you are making a family.
These are the good days - don’t wish for another day.
We can’t miss those mundane moments that make a family and make who we are.
You are the heartbeat of your home.
You are never too far gone for a fresh start and a fresh beginning from the Lord.
That’s the business that He’s in - changing our hearts for Him.
As parents, never be discouraged!
