For the Moms – 2021 (Bold & Brave)

For the Moms is Back and more “Bold & Brave” than ever

Blog series “For the Moms” is back and more bold and brave than ever! I never quite imagined that this project would go beyond 1 year – but it has, and here we are! The 2020 For the Moms…Our Life in Words series was too powerful to not run again. And, if you missed the…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Natasha Tubbs

Equipping my children is less about what I think they should know, and so much more about what I value. I must know what I value in my own life that I desire them to honor and apply in their own. In the face of trials, uncertainty, and spiritual warfare I know that these things…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Suzanne Bohman

When my son was in the seventh grade, he had some unexpected heart problems and needed immediate surgery.  I had no idea what to pray or which words to use with God. I prayed, “God, I do not know what to do, but my eyes are upon you.” The battle for my son’s life was…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Arrica Hess

My husband and I moved from a comfortable life into a temporary housing situation to prepare to plant churches in Canada. Everything was changing drastically from what we were accustomed, and I had just given birth to my third child. I fell into a deep depression. I didn’t realize it was postpartum depression until later. I was…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Jenna’e Murphy

We find rest when we get into the secret place with the Lord. We start to focus on Him, the problem solver, and not all of our problems. We begin to hear Him clearly—we’re able to listen to instruction. See, some of the things we think we HAVE to get done can wait. Sometimes we…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Carol Bevil

With Christ as its central cord, my marriage is rooted in much more secure soil than human emotions; it is rooted in the life-giving soil of faith.  In 23 years, we have endured the loss of twin boys, job loss, four children (three teenagers—still one more to go!), multiple moves (twice cross country), breast cancer,…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Leah Lively

I do not balance it all and I reject the mindset that balancing my life is part of my “job” as a parent.  I am not “Supermom” and I have ceased trying to be.  I came to this conclusion when I found myself failing as I attempted to keep all my plates spinning, resulting in…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Cheryl Shumake

In that moment I recognized I do not get to tell the Lord what to do with my life which belongs to Him. I continued in worship, “Whether I live or die, whatever You decide to do, glorify Yourself and magnify Your name through this! Let even my brokenness serve You!”

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Sacha C.

I spent over three years with this man, and during that time I faced a lot of hardships. Fortunately though, I became a born-again Christian during this time and even though I struggled deeply with sin, God still rescued me and He saved me from myself and from the abuse.

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Felicia Graves

Managing as a mother when you are caring for a child with mental illness or learning/developmental disabilities means that you will at times need to put yourself first.  I am often reminded of the speech given before taking off on a flight when you are instructed to put on your oxygen mask before helping another…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Robbi Bittle

Satan knows the power of a godly mother, and has influenced the world to see the role as mother as a burden. Children are often portrayed as burdens to be gratefully rid of when school starts back.  Let’s take back the role that God has ordained for us as mothers, seeing it as a blessing…

For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Tamara South

However, as time went on I realized that my marriage was suffering because we did not spend much time alone together. After I realized that our marriage was not healthy, we made sure that we got to go out at least once a month. As things changed due to COVID, once the kids went to…
