    The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

    The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

    One of the most exciting things we can teach our children is that Jesus came to earth as a tiny baby and that he’s coming back as the King. This past-and-future perspective is at the heart of the Advent season as we celebrate what has happened and wait expectantly for what is to come. In this episode, Emily and Laura explain the meaning of Advent, share ways to celebrate, and encourage moms to find freedom in the Christmas season. Instead of running into the holidays with added pressure of one more thing, we can look to Christ and celebrate the gospel story in our homes from an overflow of joy.

    I Wouldn’t Do It That Way

    I Wouldn’t Do It That Way

    It’s natural to prefer spending time with moms who share similar parenting values, lifestyle choices, and special interests with us. On the other hand, most of us can instantly think of a mom we avoid, because she makes us uncomfortable with her views in a gray-area of motherhood. These feelings beg the question, “How should we love and interact with those who do motherhood differently than us, especially when those differences breed difficulties?” In this episode, Emily and Laura apply the gospel to these challenging relationships, remembering that the cross levels all of us. Because of the extravagant grace shown to us, we can now love others who are different, even when it’s hard.

    Let’s Just Skip This

    Let’s Just Skip This

    Moms know that you don’t start reading a storybook in the middle! If you skip the first half, your kids miss important aspects of the plot and the character development. Instead, you start at the very beginning and view all of the parts as a whole. But for some reason, when it comes to the Bible, we often toss that concept aside and go straight for the easier-to-understand New Testament books. In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss the importance of reading the Old Testament, citing eight reasons why it really matters! Processing the entire Bible in light of the cross is critical for us (and our kiddos) to rightly understand God's epic redemption story.
    We’re grateful to Christian Standard Bible, a Bible translation for everyone, for making this week’s show possible. Whether reading to a child, teaching in your women’s ministry, or using for personal study, the CSB will be accurate, readable, and shareable. Find your Bible at csbible.com.

    Knowing Your Limits with Hannah Anderson

    Knowing Your Limits with Hannah Anderson

    We know we should be grateful for the gifts God has given us in motherhood. But instead, we may find ourselves battling discontentment, anxiety, and stress over our inability to keep up with even the simplest tasks. In this episode, Emily and Laura talk with author Hannah Anderson about her book Humble Roots. Hannah applies gospel-truth to challenging topics like postpartum body image, vocational or ministry calling, and dealing with the temptation to live for our ideal version of motherhood instead of God's plan for us. This conversation is candid, challenging, and leaves much to be considered as Hannah offers an opportunity for weary moms to rest by accepting their limitations and letting God be God.

    You Don’t Have to be Scared

    You Don’t Have to be Scared

    Evangelism is an essential part of the Christian life—so why does it feel so overwhelming and awkward? Maybe you worry you’ll say the wrong thing or offend someone. But when you think about it, is there anything better or more beautiful than sharing Christ? In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss some common pitfalls we experience in evangelism and the gospel hope that drives us to try again. From the people in our homes to those we see in our communities, we can share the greatest news of Christ’s resurrection by simply sharing what he did and how the gospel impacts our own lives!
    We’re grateful to Crossway and the ESV Women’s Study Bible for making this week’s show possible. Now through November 14, Risen Motherhood listeners can pick up an ESV Women’s Study Bible for 40% off with a free Crossway+ membership. Head over to crossway.org/risenmotherhood to find out more!

Must Listen!

This podcast has been a saving grace for me in my motherhood journey. Always points back to the gospel and keeps my eyes focused on Jesus when I need it the most. So thankful for this ministry.

MUST LISTEN TO!!!!

Every Mama needs to listen to this!!! This has become the perfect companion for a stroller walk through the neighborhood, feedings, and any other daily mom activities. It stirs and directs my heart to stay focused on Jesus, reorients myself to him, and helps me love my little ones more like Christ. I cannot express the encouragement this have given my heart. I am so beyond thankful to the ladies and this ministry. I found this podcast in a really rough point of motherhood and it changed so much for me. I will never be able to put into words what this ministry has done for me and my walk with Christ.

Deb Dum ,
