It Is NOT Your Job to Work Yourself Out of a Job
It's a fairly common piece of advice given to moms. it's thrown out by your friends, older moms, at homeschool meetings, Mom nights out, baby showers, etc. Moms are told that it's their job to work themselves right out of a job.And it's not true. The Bible is very clear that we are all created to work. It is certainly true that our children of both sexes must learn how to manage a home; the cleaning, the cooking, the shopping, the finances. But it is definitely not true that our children should be running our home. In this episode, I give you the Biblical perspective on working at home, why your children should not be in charge of running your home, and a very personal story on how I got way tangled up in some wrong thinking in this area.

You Don't Need Quiet to Have a Quiet Time
Quiet time. That elusive thing that people say you should have in order to be a "good Christian."The problem is, women skip time with the Lord because they just can't get up at 5:00 in the morning to read the Bible and pray without falling asleep. Maybe that's because, as moms, we are already so sleep deprived that it borders on dangerous. In this episode, Dawn shares some helpful and practical tips for spending time with the Lord that definitely don't require quiet. But first, she releases you from the requirement of a 5:00 a.m. quiet time, a basket by the bed, and having it all done plus a shower before the kids get up.For shownotes, head over to:onefaithfulmom.com/013

The 3 R's You Must Teach Your Children
No matter where your child receives his or her formal education, you as the parent are still responsible for teaching them many things. But you must give the highest priority to teaching them the 3 R's. I'm not talking about reading, writing, and arithmetic. I'm talking about Ruin, Redemption, and Regeneration.Your children have to know and understand that we stand in ruin before an Almighty God; that Jesus offers us the only solution for that state of ruin through His redemption; and that once we have believed in Him for redemption, we must allow the Holy Spirit to lead us through the process of regeneration. Dawn explains what each R entails and gives practical examples of how to teach them to your children in real-life situations. Find all the shownotes at:onefaithfulmom.com/011
