    1. When You Feel Lost in Motherhood

    1. When You Feel Lost in Motherhood

    Welcome to the kitchen table with Bethany Kimsey!
     
    Have you ever walked away from an interaction with one of your children and thought, “I have NO IDEA what to do?” Motherhood can leave us floundering in our thoughts. 
     
    Sometimes we don’t know what to do with the situation that has presented itself.  It leaves us feeling befuddled. 
     
    Bethany Kimsey encourages us that we can find refuge and an invitation in Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
     
    We can call to Him even in the day to day, in the potty training, in the sleepless baby, in the mood swings of our teenagers, and God will answer.  
     
    Mama, He understands these great and hidden things.  
     
    He has given us a great task, and at times it can feel so daunting but I share how to step into the throne room and trust God’s invitation.

    2. How Do You Walk with Your Kids Towards Grateful Hearts

    2. How Do You Walk with Your Kids Towards Grateful Hearts

    On this week’s Thanksgiving episode of When God Breaks Through, Bethany shares a listener’s question. 
     
    “How do I successfully help my children navigate the world’s culture of entitlement and how do you teach gratitude and speak into this area with Gospel conversations?”
     
    Bethany has discovered three different areas where we can find the opposite of gratitude in our children’s lives.
    -Possessiveness
    -Selfishness
    -Entitlement
     
    In parenting, we can identify each of these at certain times of growth in our children’s lives.  Each one steers Bethany in the right direction of how to speak into each of her eight children.  



    Addressing these three sinful nature highlight reels, Bethany reminds us that these are opportunities to bring the Gospel conversation to the attention of our children. 
     
    Through various age ranges, she explains how we can begin to see and notice and gracefully guide our children to experience freedom from selfishness, entitlement, and possessiveness. 
     
    Culturally, we see a child-centered approach which suggests that our child’s happiness is number one.  When we center our family on the happiness of our children, we feed into the sinful nature which says, “I am owed happiness, contentment, and comfort.”  Those things are not true in the Gospel.  
     
    Before we have these redemptive Gospel conversations with our children, we have to look inward and evaluate where we are discontent or are feeling entitled.  
     
    Bethany discusses the practical ways we can observe, confront without shame, and create opportunities to share the Good News from each  childhood stage.

    3. How to Hold the Heart of Your Child

    3. How to Hold the Heart of Your Child

    Welcome back to the kitchen table with Bethany Kimsey for this week's episode of When God Breaks Through.  This week Bethany answers another fellow mama’s question sent in via Instagram and Facebook.  
    Don’t forget you can send in your questions, as well. Just visit Bethany’s instagram and facebook page @bethanykimsey to send a message with your question. 
    Kimberly asked, “How do you have a good friendship with your children while at the same time carry the authoritative role? How do you balance the two?”
    To answer this question, we have to answer some other pertinent questions:
    How do we tend to the heart that was given to me?
    How am I holding my child’s heart?
    Am I holding it too tight?
    Or have I dropped their heart? 
    Characteristics of disconnect to their heart include:
    distance avoidance eye rolls It is up to us to come before our children. 
    In our homes, we have a chief opportunity to display reconciliation and the Gospel in moments like these.   We are called to be ministers of reconciliation. 
    When we recognize we have a problem with a child and their hearts are not softly placed in our hands, our role as the more mature believer is to come to that child and humbly sit before them and say honestly, “I think there is a problem in our relationship. How have I wounded your heart? What has caused this riff between us?” 
    They may respond with “I’m fine.”  Maybe they aren’t ready to discuss yet.  They may need space to process, but we need to be  willing to wait and ready to discuss when they are ready. As mamas we want to get to the root of the problem, into the crevices of their hearts. 
    Bethany discusses in this episode the way we participate in holding our child’s heart through key conversations and communications, through prayer, and through constant humility.  This, in turn, brings friendship naturally because our children are assured their hearts are being tended too. 
    Listen to be encouraged and led into a beautiful mentoring conversation in our motherhood.

    If you don’t know where to begin with praying over your children, Bethany has a free prayer guide to walk you through being a fierce prayer warrior. Click here for the guide.

This is a blessing!

I am so thankful for this podcast! The 25 min length is perfect, and the topics Bethany has chosen to discuss are always relevant to my journey as a mom. She shares honest experience with humility and candor. I often find myself reflecting on the gospel truths that she presented- it’s just the encouragement I need!

Gospel Centered Encouragement

Love that Bethany gives gospel centered encouragement in a timely manner. Easy to pop in while you’re doing laundry, washing dishes, or just need to put yourself in timeout for a moment. Easy to find yourself at her kitchen table listening to all The Lord has given her to share. ☕️❤️
