Mom Struggling Well

Motherhood is hard. And amazing. And can make you burst with joy and frustration at the same time some days. Join me each week as I dig deep with various guests to ask how they moved from just struggling to struggling WELL.

All I can say is I'm so THANKFUL God made such a wide variety of people.  If we were all the same we'd all be bored to tears.  My friend Kristen Kill is a breath of fresh air to me for a variety of reasons one of which is that we are so different.  She has a freedom and grace about her and I could only dream of.  I could talk to her all day long and learn completely new ways of doing things.  The OTHER reason she's so special to me is her deep understanding of truth and God's character.  She's a gem and I'm thrilled to share her with you.

What we chat about:

  • obedience and what we need to do to get a "well done" at the end of our days
  • the idea and importance of Legacy
  • the importance of cultivating our souls and those of our children
  • The Hidden Art by Edith Schaffer

Some topics in life are just difficult to talk about.  I would say human trafficking is definitely one of them. It is an issue that is dear to my heart but in all the conversations and sermons I've heard on the topic, I haven't heard someone speak with as much hope and compassion as Corinne.  

The other amazing piece of this puzzle is the extraordinary way God has prepared their family to go.  They have been having unreal experiences with people in their own town all related to the same topic.  You wouldn't believe it if I told you so you might as well just listen.

What we cover:

// Exodus Road and their counter-trafficking work

// How Easter may NOT be the best time to tell your kids they are moving to Asia

// The hard/good road of trusting God to provide in lean times

// God's ability to use our regular jobs to accomplish remarkable things

Hey friends!  Today I am happy to bring you the story of my friend Brooke!  She and her husband live in Poland and work to rescue the forgotten populations of society.  What I love about her story is that she wasn't that excited to get involved with it at first.  Sometimes we think people who do amazing things are different than us in that theyalways like serving others.  Her story is proof that God can use us even if we aren't 100% excited at first.

What we discuss: 

  • how one cup of tea turned into a foundation to rescue the forgotten
  • the road to building a family (that is sometimes rocky and heartbreaking)
  • an unbelievable story about how her baby almost died in a foreign hospital
  • the importance of surrender

In this episode we talk about how to use your interests as a bridge for discussing spiritual topics with your kids.  We also talk about how sometimes in 2015 it can still be impossible to obtain the internet even when living in a very populated location.  

The reason I needed to share Amanda with you NOW is because of her wonderful Christmas ebook that takes you through how to share the Christmas story with your kids in a way they will love.  I am not a big fan of all the crafts and all the mess that creates but even I found it to be very fun and enjoyable so we go through her book every year.
