After a long day, have you ever finally reached the proverbial “end of your rope” and lost your cool? Every mama has been there. And the truth is, there isn’t a single how-to guide or list of tips or hacks out there that will fulfill and sanctify us like the promises of God.  In today’s episode I’m joined by Kristen Wetherell, author of Humble Moms: How the Work of Christ Sustains the Work of Motherhood – a resource for mothers intended to provide “exactly what she needs in moments of exhaustion: life giving and biblical meditations on Jesus, who humbly serves her, not only in hand, but in heart.” Read More....

Do you know what it’s like to feel “not good enough”? For me, it was always being chosen last during PE class. Or should I say, the one that the team was stuck with. (Except for one memorable day in 6th grade…)  What has it been for you?

It is one thing to be lied to, but it is another thing to lie to ourselves because we want to  avoid something. So, what is it that we are avoiding and how is that lie keeping us from living the life Jesus created for us? Today I am so excited to have Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith back on the podcast to talk about her new book, “Set Free to Live Free - Breaking Through the 7 Lies Women Tell Themselves.”  She explains that mental lies are like bacteria that have gained access through an open wound, and that it is time to start treating it!  The Seven Lies Women Tell Themselves are: Perfection  Envy  Image  Balance  Control Emotions Limits I will look at the lie I struggle with the most, LIMITS.  Dr. Saundra explained to me that I limit what I ask God for based on what I think I deserve. - OUCH!  She also shares 5 stages of freedom within each of the lies!  Dr. Saundra leaves us with a Free Woman’s Creed and invites us to become a member of the Diamond Society, giving us the special criteria! You won’t want to miss it! Is there a lie that you want to be freed from? 
Do you make New Year resolutions or do you choose a word of the year?  I know I used to make resolutions that looked beautiful on paper but faded away after a few months. I now choose a word of the year and a Bible verse, and this year I chose the word “restore” and Isaiah 40:31. “But those who trust in the LORD will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not become weary, they will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31In today’s episode, I process how I use my word of the year. I apply my word daily by asking these questions: 𝑾𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒊𝒏𝒗𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑹𝑬𝑺𝑻𝑶𝑹𝑬 𝒎𝒆? 𝑾𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒑𝒐𝒘𝒆𝒓 𝒑𝒍𝒂𝒚 𝒃𝒓𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝑹𝑬𝑺𝑻𝑶𝑹𝑨𝑻𝑰𝑶𝑵 𝒕𝒐 𝒎𝒚 𝒎𝒂𝒓𝒓𝒊𝒂𝒈𝒆? 𝑫𝒐𝒆𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒍𝒊𝒕𝒕𝒍𝒆 𝒃𝒊𝒕 𝒐𝒇 𝒈𝒐𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒑 𝑹𝑬𝑺𝑻𝑶𝑹𝑬 𝒂 𝒇𝒓𝒊𝒆𝒏𝒅𝒔𝒉𝒊𝒑? 𝑾𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝒘𝒂𝒕𝒄𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒔𝒆𝒓𝒊𝒆𝒔 𝑹𝑬𝑺𝑻𝑶𝑹𝑬 𝒎𝒚 𝒉𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒕?  𝑨𝒎 𝑰 𝒕𝒓𝒖𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑳𝒐𝒓𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝑹𝑬𝑺𝑻𝑶𝑹𝑬 𝒎𝒚 𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒈𝒕𝒉 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒗𝒊𝒅𝒆 𝒐𝒓 𝒂𝒎 𝑰 𝒕𝒓𝒚𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒐 𝒕𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒓𝒐𝒍 𝒂𝒈𝒂𝒊𝒏? As we step into a new season and a new year, I pray that when the enemy comes to throw you off your game, you remember to pull out your game-winning card and claim your promises.This will take strategy and a real game plan. Maybe even a word of the year or a specific verse can give you the focus you're looking for.  What is your word this year?  I would love to know as we journey through 2022 together! 
FREEDOM! As a teenager, I couldn’t wait to leave home and finally have “my freedom.”  When I finally got the freedom I thought was out there in the real world, I discovered something I hadn’t expected:  my freedom came with a lot of responsibility.  I began longing to go back home where my parents took care of the responsibilities — especially at Christmas. Like me, God’s children wanted their freedom.  They, too, quickly learned that life outside of the protection of home was not what they'd expected. In the final episode of this 4-part series, I’m excited to explore how much God is longing to welcome us back home. Ever since Adam and Eve left Eden, at the very core of God’s plan for Christmas has been His desire for us to be back home in heaven with Him. For the BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!
What kind of gift-receiver are you?  Do you receive a gift with gratitude?  Do you use it with the enthusiasm  that the giver anticipated when selecting that gift — just for you?  It’s just over a week until Christmas, and I can hardly wait to have my kids home and watch them open the gifts that I have picked out for them. Of course, we all know that the reason for the season is the ultimate gift: Jesus. And I also believe that God enjoys our enjoyment  as we watch our loved ones open the gifts we've given them.  In today’s episode I talk about how we can joyously unwrap the gifts that God gives us and use them to worship Him. 𝑮𝒐𝒅'𝒔 𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒏 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑩𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝑪𝒉𝒓𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒎𝒂𝒔 𝑬𝒗𝒆𝒓 is a 4-part series that shares a fresh perspective on the heart of the Father as He anticipates having His children back home with Him. ⁠
If you were waiting for a new king to come to earth,wouldn’t you expect him to show up ready for action? Many years ago, God’s people wanted an avenger to arrive and save the day.. So, why would the Son of God come as an infant? In order for God to make a full sacrifice for us, He chose to come into the world like us. Listen to today’s episode to better understand our Savior, who loves so completely the loneliest soul. He wants far more than mere vengeance!  He wants us to willingly follow Him. So He came to be with us in every way so that we would trust Him. He’s been where we want to go: HOME!

‘Home for the holidays’ – whether we go home or our family members come home – is the heart's deepest desire of the season.  Today and the next three weeks, I’ll be sharing God’s Plan For The Best Christmas Ever. This Episode starts with excitement of Jesus' birth.  The pages of the Bible can hardly contain all the excitement around the birth of Christ: the angels singing, the shepherds in shock, the star shining the glory, and the wise men traveling, all part of the story that I remember picturing as a child.  As a mother, I love how we are told in Luke 2:18-19 that all who heard were amazed at what the shepherds told them.  But Mary was treasuring up all these things in her heart and meditating on them. Today I will share a fresh perspective on the word treasure. To treasure something is to keep it from perishing. For God Treasured you so much, He sent His son! Cheri Fletcher
This is the story of a baby from Bethlehem who became the most influential teacher of the ages. As chronicled by Luke, a physician of his time and with great attention to detail, his Gospel account includes a cast of unexpected characters: Fishermen, beggars, the poor, lame, & blind. Religious leaders and women. Busy families need concise, quality resources to lead their family through meaningful holiday moments while keeping Christ at the center. This 100-page devotional is perfect for the Christian family who wants a simple family devotional with a strong foundation of scripture. People are desperate for connection and hope this time of year. 25 Days of Jesus also includes classic songs and even favorite recipes to warm your heart and soul. Jennifer Bryant will be guiding a Facebook group through each chapter beginning December 1st. Parents can share ideas about how to bring the devotions alive with their kids, and we can share special moments that inspire us through the season. DEVOTIONAL - 25 Days Of Jesus    
I am so excited to have my friend Amy Connell back on the show as we celebrate the launch of her first book: Your Worthy Body: Finding Freedom In Health by Breaking All The Rules. Amy’s message of loving the body that God gave you and being able to break the rules that society tells us are for a one size fits all has been the grace I need to give myself. She wants to share that as agape love is unconcerned with self and concerned with the greatest good for another, our idea of health should be less concerned with how we look and more concerned with being physically equipped to love others.
