Welcome to the Purposed Parent/Connected Child podcast!

I'm Terri, a mom who has raised two sets of children over two generations, with one daughter now in Heaven. I hope that as you listen, you envision my arm around your shoulder. I'm here to encourage and equip you to move from being a good mom and help you become a godly mom.

My prayer and purpose is that as you listen to each episode, your heart and mind will fill with Biblical truths and tips. Each show is crafted to bring you nearer to Christ and equip you to mentor Him to the precious children He has entrusted to you. It's true that the days are long, but the years are short. You and I must practice purposed parenting now.

Have you discovered that parenting is trickier than you expected? I've discovered that mothers need an intentional plan to raise children to follow Christ instead of culture. We need a way to set the foundation of faith for our child, and lovingly disciple them, so their relationship with Jesus (and us) lasts into adulthood.

Motherhood is meant to be surrendered to Christ daily. I believe that despite what society teaches, you are not enough. That’s because you weren't meant to be, but through Him, you are beautifully capable. God chose you for this exact moment and for the unique children He placed under your care.
It's time to rise and raise children to chase Christ over culture.

Mothers are the front line to mentor Jesus. Will you unintentionally be a barrier between your child and Christ, or will you reflect His light to mold the hearts of your children? The Purposed Parent/Connected Child podcast will equip you to parent with Christ in the center. As you learn to prayerfully parent with purpose, your children will draw nearer to Him and to you. You will build healthy connection with Christ and your child that will last into eternity so you will truly be a purposed parent with a connected child in the ways God desires. You'll transform from a good parent to godly mother.

I have some suggested next steps:
1. Visit my website: terrihitt.com
2. While you’re on the website, grab your free guide to Help Your Child Develop (Godly) Confidence. You’ll also find many other free resources to deepen your walk with God.
3. Contact me for a 30-minute complimentary coaching call to see how I can help you move from being a good parent to a godly mom.
4. Join The Set-Apart Mom Community – Have you decided peers and culture won't be the main influence over your precious children? Email me at info@terrihitt.com for details on how you can work with me one-on-one and in group settings so we can rise together and raise kids who chase Christ. You'll also gain access to my proven Purposed Parenting Plan and Motherhood Mindset Model.

    Embrace Being an Imperfect Parent But Don’t Stay There

    Embrace Being an Imperfect Parent But Don’t Stay There

    Parents don’t know the purpose or eternal plans God has set for our children, but we carry His holy authority to raise His children prayerfully and humbly for Him. Just as Jesus replied in Luke 2:49 which asks, “Why were you searching for me? Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house,” parents must intentionally be about our Heavenly Father’s business and show our children how to do the same in their life.

    Teach Your Children to Test What They Are Taught

    Teach Your Children to Test What They Are Taught

    Have you noticed how challenging it can be for adults to discern biblical truths in culture today? Without parents intentionally maturing biblical critical thinking skills, our children will not develop the important ability. Every area of your children’s life and eternity is impacted by whether they can identify what is in alignment with God’s Truths and how that shapes the decisions they make. How are you helping them discern fact from fiction?

    Do You Correct or Punish When You Discipline?

    Do You Correct or Punish When You Discipline?

    God wants parents to address ungodly or incorrect behavior children exhibit. You don’t want to ignore actions that sin against God or form bad character. However God calls mothers to disciple, or train and teach, through discipline, not just jump to punishments that skim over the heart of behavioral or character issues. Today we discuss practical ways parents can disciple the heart instead of punishing behavior.

GODLY WISDOM

Godly wisdom pours through the words and heart of Terri’s podcasts! I truly wish this had been around 30 years ago when we were raising our sons.
I love how Terri leads with grace while at the same time instilling the importance and distinction of not being just a good mom but rather a Godly parent! So powerful and needed for the world we live in!
My favorite phrase…”You can’t exhale what you don’t inhale.” Pearls of wisdom! Moms of littles right now, THIS is a beautiful guide!! Highly recommend!
