    Shanna Alonge - Christian Life Coach for Moms

    Shanna Alonge - Christian Life Coach for Moms

    What’s the hardest part about being a mom?


    On this episode we’re chatting with a self-proclaimed “hot mess mom” who’s on a mission to help overwhelmed moms remember their worth.


    Through her coaching, Shanna reminds moms they are never alone and offers hope amidst the beautiful chaos through faith, mindset, and community. 


    Three questions to consider as you listen:
    1.     What are the strengths you bring to a mom or a caregiver to your relationships?
    2.     What fills your tank when it empties? Are you being intentional to put things into your life when you pour yourself out for others? 
    3.     How is your community? It’s so important to surround yourself with solid people.

    And as always, we'd love if you'd share this episode with your friends and/or leave us a review. Thank you!

Intercession

After thinking most of the week about Jesus and the Holy Spirit’s intercession on my behalf in Ro 8….then seeing the title of todays podcast (4-3-22), I am blown away by God’s goodness and faithfulness. 🤯😃

So many Inspiring stories

I love hearing the inspiring stories that Stephani, Hannah and their guests share about how God uses each of our stories no matter how messy they are. Be sure to check out their interview with Sarah G on our thought lives!

Real. Relevant. Relaxing. Recharging

Eavesdropping on these two besties is nothing short of delightful. You'll laugh with them about their hot moments, discover new insights with their awesome guests, and maybe even cry a little, as God touches your heart through their vulnerability and love. What you won't do is leave the same. Tune in for fun, friendship and food for the soul.
