Episode 036 Your Motherhood Mindset
Would've paid to have known this sooner, but glad I know it now! This is THE episode that will shift your thinking in motherhood from stress and feelings of "never good enough" to simplicity and peace. I can say that because I've lived it! I'm giving you permission to do the same. In this episode, I share how it all changed for me and how I can view my motherhood through a new lens that helps me focus on what matters most. What lies have you been believing about yourself as a mother? It's time to expose them for what they are- lies! Join me in the call to action and and answer these questions: Where am I now in my motherhood? Where do I want to be? Get a clear vision for what is really important to you and start letting your actions follow that priority. Sometimes we make things far more difficult than they have to. And remember mama, YOU are the most important thing your children need from you that ONLY YOU can give. Choose to show up for them and love on them with the genuine, authentic love of the Father.

Episode 035 Seeing God as a Loving Father with Emily Louis
God is so, so good. There is no denying that. It's all over Scripture. He is GOOD! Sometimes we interpret our "rightness with Him" based on how good WE act or behave in return. It doesn't work that way, Mama!For one, Jesus did what we could not do. He is the only human who ever lived, breathed, and walked this earth that was actually GOOD. Blameless. Pure. Holy. Innocent. Sometimes we confuse our earthly report card with how we stand with him. "A" in prayer, "B-" in forgiveness, "A-" in good works, and yet it falls short every time, even if we think we have straight A's...it's not good enough. Hello, the whole point of why Jesus had to come to our rescue. But for real, who wants that burden on their shoulders?And two, do we ever really feel loved when we're always trying to measure up? Always looking for an 'atta girl! Great job! As if that approval is what earns our right to be loved?In this episode, my sweet friend Emily shares how her relationship with God changed when He used a tragic event in her life as a defining moment. God removed the blinders she wore, seeing God as an authoritarian figure, and opening her eyes to the loving Father He truly is. Her relationship deepened, her Faith took root, and she enjoyed a closeness with Him that she hand't known before. Yes, Mama. That same love is there for you too. I hope you will ask God to reveal His love for you in a whole new way. He is our Loving Father.
