    Love Where You Are Finale: Making Spirits Brighter (Shiloh Women's Christmas Conference 2023)

    Love Where You Are Finale: Making Spirits Brighter (Shiloh Women's Christmas Conference 2023)

    Hey sweet friend, 
    This is a very special episode of Love Where You Are for a few reasons. One reason is because this audio is from when I spoke at the Shiloh Women's Christmas Conference just last month, "Making Spirits Brighter." I shared a message of leadership and delegation, coming from a story of Moses that deeply resonated with me and I feel like it's something many of us moms deal with... 
    We get so busy juggling all the things and adding stuff to our plate, that we can often lose sight of what God is truly calling us to: the holy work of motherhood. And when we are juggling all the things, we are so suspectible to the temptations and distractions of the enemy, and that pulls us from that holy focus. 
    It was not long after sharing this message, a message that I needed in my own life, that I realized what God was calling me to do. 
    Right now, I am shifting my focus and energy to the Called to Love podcast here on Christian Parenting, where I specifically answer your questions about adoption and foster care. If you have enjoyed Love Where You Are, you will most likely enjoy Called to Love. It's still me, Somer, just with a new and specific purpose and mission to serve those walking the beautiful and broken journey of adoption or foster care. I would love it if you joined us for those deep conversations, friend. 
    And thank you for suporting me with Love Where You Are. It has been a beautiful chapter that draws to a close, but I am excited for what God has in store.
    I hope this message from the Shiloh conference impacts you just as it has impacted me. God bless!

    Purposefooled with Kelly Needham

    Purposefooled with Kelly Needham

    In today’s episode Somer and Kelly discuss how easy it is to become purposefooled. Even before the rise of social media which has exponentially impacted this problem, humans have sought after glory for themselves and the extraordinary, as Kelly describes with the Tower of Babal story. We often seek to make ourselves the saviors, the heroes, of the story, instead of giving everything to God. We will run ourselves ragged, wheels constantly spinning, doing all the things, because the mundane and ordinary don't feel like enough. God is meant to be our purpose in life, not the titles we possess or the activities we do.

    Courage for Life with Ann White

Ann gigves us seven practical tips for courage, examples of courageous people from the Bible, and reminds us that sometimes God calls us to something even if we "aren't ready." 
    Scripture reference: 2nd Timothy 1:7
    Notable moments: 
    -God does not give us a spirit of fear. 
    -God carries us through life's hardships and traumas.

    Ann White is passionate about creating resources to help women build their relationship with God. It drives her to create such things as the first female-voiced audio Bible. The female voice is important to her mission, which has reached behind bars as well as in church pews. “One thing in working with at-risk women, it’s important to use gender-specific treatment. You don’t put a woman who may have been traumatized by a man with a male counselor or a male-voiced program.” "Courage for Life" is only the beginning as Ann works with Tyndale House Publishers on a “Women’s Study Bible.” “We should be sharing God and his word, teaching other people, and inspiring life change. Everyone needs a daily dose of God-given Courage For Life!” says Ann.

    Stuff I'd Only Tell God with Jennifer Dukes Lee

    Stuff I'd Only Tell God with Jennifer Dukes Lee

    In this episode Somer and special guest Jennifer Dukes Lee discuss the power of journaling and being honest with God.
    Despite the fact that we KNOW cognitively that God KNOWS everything and we can't keep secrets from Him, there is something that prevents us from opening up that dialogue with Him and being vulnerable... And yet in that vulnerability, we can deepen our relationship and connection to Him, and it also impacts us as mothers. 
    Notable moments the conversation: 
    -"Holiness in the holy mess" 
    -We can miss out on intimacy with God if we keep our distance. 
    -If you don't process things properly with the Lord, you may end up taking out all the pent up emotion and internal conflict onto your kids or those close to you.
