    Conversation Starter: Grace

    Conversation Starter: Grace

    Today on our conversation starter we are discussing grace for your assignment.  I heard a sermon by Nona Jones that had me thinking.  As moms, we find ourselves doing all the things, I know I have.  In doing all the things, it is easy to find yourself overwhelmed and overtaxed, so the question I have for you is, has the grace for that assignment been lifted or has the season for that assignment ended. I want to challenge you to get quiet and ask yourself is this task/assignment one that is God given and/or has my season for this assignment lifted.

    *I'd love to hear from you either by contacting us on the website or shooting us a dm @mahoganymomspodcast on IG.*

    Thanks for listening!

She’s not afraid of any topic

One of the things that I absolutely love about Dr. Chelle is that she is not afraid to tackle the tough topics! I am also glad to hear a podcast that features women of color and the multi-faceted experience of motherhood. Thank you Dr. Chelle!

Toya T. ,

What a wonderful space to gain wisdom, encouragement and tools as you navigate the many terrains of motherhood. It is refreshing to hear the journeys of mothers with various experiences and to know that you aren’t alone.

Great content. Thank you!

Dr. Chelle is an important voice in the momcaster space (and beyond). Her episode on asking for help was really helpful and I love the candid conversations about the mothering journey.
