For the Moms – Treasure in Jars of Clay w/ Mariah Colemon

When I catch myself fearfully thinking of the future of my boys (or fearfully thinking of anything- for that matter), the Lord brings scriptures to my remembrance that help me in these moments of uncertainty. The scripture 2 Timothy 1:7 states – “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (KJV). This scripture calms my mind by always reminding me that those feelings of fear are not from The Father. They are a tactic from the enemy to make me weary of defeat and failure. … More For the Moms – Treasure in Jars of Clay w/ Mariah Colemon

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.

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 need to slow down and rest in the Lord. Sometimes we need to take a moment to be with Him. He will give us the strength to take care of what’s necessary. … More For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Jenna’e Murphy

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 struggling just to get through my days and  keep my baby, and two toddlers cared for while my husband was going to school full time and  working.  … More For the Moms – “Bold & Brave” with Arrica Hess
