Motherhood and Ministry - You Don't Have to Choose‪!‬ The Love Where You Are Podcast

    • Christianity

Motherhood is exhausting, refining and at times, even lonely. As busy moms, we find ourselves in "survival mode" and struggle with feelings of guilt for not savoring every moment. Add to that the extra burden we carry as Christian moms who deeply desire to live a life of ministry and make an impact for the kingdom, and you've got one worn out momma.

Join me as I speak with writer and Editor in Chief of Mom Mentor, Sarah Wood, as we discuss the importance of community for moms in all seasons, share wisdom women wish they had received before becoming a mom, redefine ministry for moms and encourage you to silence the common lies the enemy speaks to your momma heart.

Show Notes:

Not everyone is going to mom like you do - the same like you’re not going to mom like everyone else - and that doesn’t mean that they’re better or worse.

There will be seasons where you have a lot more ministry inside of your home than outside of your home, however, I am always looking at “what is in my hand right now?”

People want to be seen, heard and loved.

WE CAN LOVE PEOPLE RIGHT NOW WHERE WE’RE AT AND OPEN THAT CONVERSATION, OPEN THAT DOOR SO THAT JESUS CAN MOVE.

HE HAS POSITIONED US IN SO MANY PLACES THAT IF WE OPENED OUR EYES AND LOOKED AND SAW WE WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THERE ARE PEOPLE ALL AROUND US THAT NEED JESUS, THAT NEED HIS TRUTH AND IF WE JUST GAVE SOME LOVE TO THEM IT BECOMES A BRIDGE SO THAT WE CAN TALK ABOUT HIM AT SOME POINT.
