    Episode 9: A Prayer for When Life Feels Chaotic

    For many of us right now, life feels chaotic. Whether it’s chasing after our children, managing summer schedules, chipping away at to-do lists, grieving the heaviness of the world, or all of the above, we can easily become disconnected from ourselves and God. Join us for this breath prayer to pause and recalibrate, and know that you and your family are held in the midst of it all.

    Episode 8: A Prayer for Playing Together

    Episode 8: A Prayer for Playing Together

    There is something about play that opens us up to wonder and receiving from our Creator. We see how children seem to understand this innately: their playing grounds them in the present and allows them to delight without rush. This week, pray with us that it may be so, that we take the time to slow down and experience some magic through play.
     
    Head over to Alabaster to grab a copy of Towards Rest, where you can find Kayla’s chapter about play and rest.

    With the beginning of summer, we invite you to pray with us for childlike wonder and reminders of the Creator of all seasons. We reflect on Psalm 104:19 and Genesis 8:22, verses that tell of God’s constant presence with us. May this be an encouragement to you as you enter this time of year with your family.

Perfect Mom Podcast

This short and sweet podcast with scripture and a prayer is perfect for moms! Still seems like there’s some sound issues. In Ep 1 the music was a bit too loud and vocals too low. Ep 3 the vocals got fuzzy at times because it was too loud.

Perfect timing!

This podcast is right on time! Parenting is not easy by itself. Add the current cultural climate and parenting can seem daunting. Kayla gives us a sense of not being alone. Her prayers are truly for such a time as this! Her voice calmly reminds us to look to the One Who promises us He is always with us.

Awesome

I love the contemplative practices and I haven’t seen anything specific to parents. Thank you for this. What a gift.
