A listener writes, “My cousin and her young son (who live far away) are coming to visit in a couple weeks. We just found out her young son is now identifying as a girl. We have young children and are very concerned with them seeing this and trying to process the confusion. How should we handle this?” Transgenderism is injuring our kids. We cannot remain silent.

When Is The Right Time To Teach Children About The Bible? With Danika Cooley
1268

The Church is in a crisis today. We are living in a time of incredible deception where discernment is desperately needed—and worse—this is a generation of biblically illiterate Christians. It’s not enough to just take our kids to Sunday School, we need to take responsibility and teach them God’s word ourselves. But when is the right age to teach children about the Bible? Author Dankia Cooley joins me today to answer this and many other questions about the importance of teaching God’s Word to our kids. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Dark Agenda: Propaganda, Vaccine Mandates and Parental Rights With Guest Liza Greve Part 2
1365

Vaccine mandates are really mandates to restrict parental rights, and fueled by the media attention, legislation is popping up around the nation with the purpose of abolishing non-medical vaccine exemptions or “opt-outs” for schoolchildren. Why the push? Today, Liza Greve is back to explain why she believes it’s time to get off the bench and start asking questions. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Vaccines: Who Calls the Shots? With guest Liza Greve Part 1
1320

Vaccine choice — whether to give one’s own children vaccines for various viral maladies — has become a household topic. The debate has been characterized by most media and many politicians as a fight between those who are concerned about public health and those who ignorantly disregard public safety, and endanger others via their decisions not to inoculate, because of overblown fears of vaccine dangers. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

The War on Children: The Leftist Agenda of the American Library Association
1396

What image comes to mind when you think of or hear the word librarian? Most of us think of a sweet older lady who has a penchant for organization and quiet. Unfortunately for our children, that illusion is long over. Today’s libraries are leftist indoctrination centers who will crush anyone that dares mess with their war on children. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Legalism and Discernment: Without One, You’ll Get the Other
1331

Legalism in the church is closely related to a lack of discernment. Today I’ll be talking about whether or not it’s okay to sing a patriotic song in church. What do you think? Recently a mom wrote in asking about some books that were given to her. Her spirit was troubled. This is why we must be walking with God and listening for His voice! God will give us the discernment to know the difference, as Spurgeon said, “between right and almost right.” **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Pella, Iowa has become ground-zero in the transgender war. Last week, a young girl who “identifies” as male was permitted to walk around topless at the community pool and enter the men's locker room. How long will we put up with this and what can we do to stop it?  When will we fight for our children? Also, Angela from Texas asks “Is God still speaking?” The short answer is “Yes!” Listen in and be encouraged!

The Value of Understanding History with Emily Hladik
1565

I think most of us would admit that we don’t have a great handle on United States History outside of a few major events. We have all learned that in general, we don’t understand the constitution, federal or local government either.  The problem is that when we don’t understand history, we are ill prepared to be civically involved. I have a new friend, Emily Hladik, author and teacher of GreatAmericanStudies.com (and an Enid Freedom Fighter) here with me today and she’s going to help us understand a few of the most important topics. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

How Do We Reclaim the Science and Math Industry for Jesus? with guest Leslie Rester
1623

Parents are often intimidated by the prospect of teaching science and math, so they tend to think that they can’t home educate those older years of schooling. My friend Lesley Rester of stemtrainingcamp.com is going to debunk that myth. We need to reclaim the science and math industry by teaching it with a Biblical Worldview and launching those students into the world. It can be done at home, whether you’re homeschooling or looking for summer activities for your kids!  **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Beautiful Lies with Jennifer Strickland Part 2
1636

Do you ever look in the mirror and hate what you see? Have the opinions of others stolen your worth? Are there hidden hurts in your heart that say "I'll never measure up?" Jennifer Strickland knows all too well how you feel. Fifteen years in the beauty business left her broken, ashamed, and grappling for her value. Feeling like she could never measure up to the impossible standards placed on her, she sought affirmation from men, mirrors, and the media -- hoping that if she could just be good enough in their eyes, she would be accepted. This is the newest study at MomStrong International! Sign up and study with us in July, August, and September. Jennifer will be our guest teacher. Don’t miss it! **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Words Have Power: Speak LIFE Chaos in Portland, Oregon
1604

The apostle Paul wrote, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen” (Ephesians 4:29). In this passage, Paul is emphasizing the positive over the negative. The Greek word translated “unwholesome” means “rotten” or “foul.” It originally referred to rotten fruit and vegetables.  What do your words say about you? Are you speaking the truth in love? **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Good News in the Middle of it All: God Can Be Trusted
1607

It’s a courageous thing for a believer to give himself to a sovereign God. When we do this, what we are really saying is, “God, I trust You.” Through years of heartache and suffering, Job was reminded of God’s promise that at the end, all will be made right. God can be trusted. Following his example, can we also say, “Lord, maybe for the first time, I honestly can say, ‘I give myself to You as never before.’” **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

A Real and Present Danger with Linda Hobar Part 2
1399

Would a majority of millennials choose socialism if in exchange for “free” education and “free” health care, they would have to give up their personal property such as their iPhone and their iPad? Probably not—and yet, this is not simply a possibility--the abolition of private property is the first dictum of socialism. We must make the case against socialism now. The hour is late.

We must educate the rising generation about the true costs of socialism, and not just in dollars and cents. The spiritual implications of a nation on the brink of accepting the lie of socialism are staggering. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

How did our country stray so far from the Constitution and from the intended role of government? Put simply, it is a lack of education. Today, Mike Winther, President of the Institute for Principle Studies joins me to talk about what a “right” is, what the role of government is and whether or not it’s right for  the government to expand the definition of what our rights should be. Rights come from God, NOT from the government. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

It’s Not About Outcome, It’s About Obedience
1472

Fear. It’s everywhere. The brave men and women who fought for our freedom would not recognize this generation. Fear is our kryptonite. It keeps us in our homes when we’re afraid of what we cannot see and keeps us from speaking truth in the face of lies because we fear the response of men. Though fear has had a crippling effect on the world in the past 15 months, God is still calling His people to the front lines. The question is not “what will the outcome be,” but rather, “what does God want me to do?” Are we willing to obey no matter the cost? **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Weary? Find New Strength in the Lord
1323

For the next few weeks, I’ll be recording from the bus!  This morning, Jay and I were feeling like we were at the end of our rope. Can you relate? Are you weary? Feeling overwhelmed? One of the reasons I love the Bible so much is that we can follow the lives of men and women who faced tremendous obstacles and found strength and hope in the Lord. In the middle of all his problems, ‘David strengthened himself with trust in his God’ (v.6b, MSG). This was the turning point in David’s life. Those who, like David, have turned to God in their deepest distress have been repeatedly amazed at the way God faithfully delivers His own. His timing never fails. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

He was adopted at 6 weeks of age and grew up in a loving, multi-“racial” Christian family of 15. With siblings of varying ethnicities, he grew up with a great appreciation for diversity. Ten of the thirteen children were adopted in this remarkable family. His life defies the myth of the “unwanted” child as he was adopted, loved and has flourished. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Biden's Permission to BLM and My Journey through PTSD and Anxiety with Melissa Crabtree
2921

Biden gives the thumbs up for BLM flags. And an encouraging story from the archives. “Your body is dependent on this drug.” Those are the words I heard from my physician nearly three years ago when I began experiencing seizures as a result of forgetting to take a prescription drug that I had been taking for over 25 years. “Benzodiazepines,” I was told as I sat sobbing in my doctor’s office, “are harder to get off of than heroin.” Millions of people are struggling with anxiety and millions more know how hard it is to break free from them. Today, my friend Melissa joins me as I talk very candidly about my struggle to get off of anxiety medicine and offer hope to anyone who is struggling to do the same thing. There is hope! Listen in an be encouraged.

We Never Thought We Would Have a Big Family
1336

Once, when I was young and free, I imagined my life differently.

In my imagination, I saw a few gorgeous children (maybe three)  with my stunningly handsome husband and maybe a bird or a cat. But not both. I was nineteen when I married the stunningly handsome man. He thought a cat was a good idea. We began to imagine life together. He and his rock-n-roll band, me and my secretary job. And our cat. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Infusing Life into Your Homeschool
1131

When I started homeschooling in 1998, I did the only thing I knew how to do:  I set up a “real” classroom in our and ordered a million dollars worth of workbooks.  (At least it felt that way.) And we did okay … for a while. We were about six months into it when I began to notice that the “life” I had longed for was just not happening with the workbooks. Today I’ll be sharing the discovery that changed the way I homeschooled. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Absolute Truth: A Battle Worth Fighting with Ken Ham
1395

America is a divided nation. Then again, what’s happening in America is also happening throughout the Western world. The culture is becoming more secularized and anti-Christian. Church attendance has already dropped significantly. But what has happened to the church? Why have the younger generations been leaving? Why is the Christian message not impacting the culture like it used to? The answer is simple: we have strayed from teaching absolute Truth in our churches and schools. Today, Ken Ham, author, speaker and CEO of Answers In Genesis joins me to talk about his newest book and why he hasn’t lost hope for America. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Cleon Skousen wrote “The Naked Communist” to warn Americans about how communists planned to destroy our system from within, not by means of sudden revolution as envisioned by Karl Marx, but through a version of Italian communism which called for a “long march through the institutions.” Cultural Marxism has brought us to the brink of catastrophe—and much of it began in our schools. **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Progressivism in the Church

Does the Church have a responsibility to vote a “certain way” when it comes to the issue of abortion? What about women pastors? What about the fear of speaking out? The Bible is not silent on these issues, and so we should not be silent, either. Our confidence is not well-placed in men or government—it is well-placed in the Lord! **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com** Contribute to Heidi St. John For Congress by clicking HERE**

Embracing Seasons of Suffering with Dr. Gary and Laura House
1993

Suicide. Depression. Loss. Grief seems to be all around us right now. Are you experiencing suffering? Do you know someone who is? You’re not alone. Gary and Laura’s youngest son, Nathan, went to Heaven in 2016 at the age of 25. An incredibly kind, loving, son and brother, Nathan cherished his family and friends. He was an electrical engineer and entrepreneur. Although it wasn’t evident to those around him until after he was gone, he silently and valiantly fought depression for many years but died by suicide. The journey following this tragedy provided the vision for Our Hearts Are Home, a faith-based non-profit organization whose purpose is to minister to grieving families, provide encouragement to those who are suffering, and to educate and equip individuals to reach out to those in need.

A Moment for Esther-Like Faith
1414

How’s your heart today? Yes, our nation is facing dark days—not unlike the Jewish nation in Esther’s time—and God is working today as He was working then. Today, as we look to the future, God is asking us to look first to Him. To pray. To fast. To believe—and to live like a set apart people. This is a “Haman moment” for the United States—but God is the God of Esther outcomes. **Find links and more under PODCASTS at HeidiStJohn.com**

Anyone Can Homeschool
1498

If you knew that there was a deadly virus at your local school, would you send your child there? If you knew there was fierce fighting happening at the school, would you pack a snack lunch for them and send them on their way? Sadly, many parents are still turning a blind eye to the real pandemic - the spiritual and moral crisis that’s taking our youth in record numbers is happening in the public schools. The battle is real—and our kids should never be on the front lines. My hunch is that you wouldn’t. The time for excuses is over. The schools are no longer safe places for our kids. It’s time to pull them out.

Grace in Times of Grief
1319

The news is grim right now—even frightening. Can you feel it? Every day, strangers and friends send me articles and videos that often predict the unthinkable… but is this the place God wants us to focus on in our hearts and minds? No. God’s grace will never be absent in the life of a Believer who knows the Word and lives by it. Our confidence in times of trial must rest on the knowledge that God is in control.

Christianity Requires Courage
1677

Got courage? If you are a true Christian, this is something God requires. Nothing should separate you from God—not political unrest, not a virus, not persecution. There is no difficulty, no trouble, no scenario that can separate you from the love of God if you belong to Him. God loves you and will always protect you. He will watch over you. Because of this, not only can we yield to Him and trust Him—we can and must be men and women of courage.

We no longer fear the Lord. Special guest today… my nephew, River, makes a brief appearance. Enjoy!

Building A Life-Giving Legacy… Starting Today
1349

If there’s one thing 2020 taught us, it’s that nothing is certain—except one thing. We all have a limited time to make a difference. There is a time to be born and a time to die. We all have a “window” of opportunity in which to leave a legacy and make a difference with our lives. Our legacy in death is a function of the choices we make in life. Are you making choices that will strengthen your legacy, or weaken it? Also today: I’ll be answering questions from listeners, including one from a mom whose children are not walking with God. Keep praying! God is still at work.

Bailouts, Lockdowns and Vaccines: Where to Focus Your Energy in 2021
1687

January’s almost here. There is a storm on the horizon. People are tired. Government is poised to send an apology note of $2,000 to families, plunging us farther in debt and doing nothing to fix the lockdowns. In the midst of it all, though, God is still at work. One of the main ways He works? Through families. Is it any wonder that the family is under attack? It’s because the family that walks in truth is a powerful force for good in this world. This year, focus on yours. Invest in your family. You were born for such a time as this—and so was your family.

Find Your People—then Hang on Tight
1456

Relationships can be tricky—but they’re worth investing in, even when we disagree. The Bible teaches that we should be sharpening each other “as iron sharpens iron.” In this season of the Rona and political unrest, many of us have struggled in our relationships. Here’s the thing: we can have peace in our relationships, even when we don’t agree. Before you walk away from a friendship, consider the cost. Pray. Seek the Lord for wisdom. Real friendship will stand the test of time. So when you find your tribe, treat the friendship as precious, and hang on tight.

Beth Moore and Christian “Nationalism”
1721

Beth Moore recently tweeted her disdain for Christians who support President Trump, calling them “nationalists” and urging them to stop supporting the President. Christian “nationalism” is a term made up by leftists to further divide our nation. You can love your country and follow Christ with your entire being. There is a shaking happening in the church. Many leaders I once followed have revealed their true nature and lack of discernment in these perilous times. To not support Trump at this time is to not support Israel and to leave the unborn defenseless. It is to open the door wide to sexual sin and our country to foreign invasion. How did we get here as a Church? What does this mean for Christ followers who are finding themselves at odds with “celebrity” Bible teachers? The truth is that we’ve been here for a long time—and we are just starting to see a great divide in the modern Church.

Trusting God in Tough Times

In 2018, our family was going through a painful time. We were grieving the loss of a friendship while at the same time, struggling to keep what felt like fifteen balls in the air. One by one, the balls began to drop as night after night, I was awakened by thoughts of insecurity and stemming from the pain in my heart. I wanted the Lord to rescue me. Like David, I was weary. I needed God’s help to quiet my mind and spirit, so that I could rest and be restored. **Find links and more under PODCASTS at HeidiStJohn.com**

NO Compromise
1520

Why is the church in such a weakened state today? In part, because of sin. The world will tempt you to compromise with sin.  It will offer you enough of Jesus to stay out of hell but not enough to walk in victory.  Stay on the path! Do not compromise with evil. The risk isn’t worth any moment of reward. God has victory for you as you walk in His ways. **Find links and more under PODCASTS at HeidiStJohn.com**

The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving
1012

In Thank You, Sarah: The Woman Who Saved Thanksgiving by Laurie Halse Anderson, we see a glimpse of Sarah Hale’s spirit. She wrote persistently to officials in many levels of government promoting the observance of Thanksgiving as a unified national holiday. Not a woman to take “No” for an answer, Sarah kept on writing. For four decades and five Presidencies, Sarah wrote. She believed that observing Thanksgiving was a way that we, as a nation, could be unified. In October, 1863, President Lincoln, perhaps in response to an editorial Hale had published in the magazine she edited, read a Thanksgiving proclamation to the American people. We are still blessed by it today. **Find links and more under PODCASTS at HeidiStJohn.com**

It's like we stepped out of our daily lives and into a George Orwell novel. So how do we hang on to the peace of Christ?

Answering Kid’s Tough Questions and All About Heidi St. John!

Kids are usually more aware of the evil in this world that we give them credit for. There are plenty of opportunities for them to get a glimpse of evil, from magazine covers in grocery store checkout aisles to the images of real-life tragedies that are constantly present on the news and online. It’s part of living in a fallen world. Our kids need to know that God loves and protects them. **Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com**

Know Your Adversary
740

If we are going to be victorious in the battle between good and evil, we need to know our adversary. Satan’s name reveals much about his character. The title Satan is used fifty-two times in the Bible. It literally means “the adversary” or “the one who opposes.” He is also called the devil, a word that is used more than thirty times in the Bible and means “slanderer” or “accuser.” Regardless of what name he is called, the point is clear: we have a real enemy who wants to take us down.  ***If you liked today's podcast, you'll love Prayers for the Battlefield!

Good Roots, Good Fruit
728

As a mother, I like to think of myself as a bit of an arborist. Arborists are basically tree doctors. I’m basically a kid doctor. Right? Anyway. Arborists are awesome. They’ll come in and inspect your tree, let you know if it needs to be pruned, and suggest things that will help you keep your trees healthy. Healthy trees need pruning—just like children. Notice a bad attitude? It’s time for some loving pruning! Watch for any sign of infection. Make sure they get the right amount of sun. Healthy trees need good soil. So do healthy children. The “soil” a healthy child needs is the rich soil of the Bible. Water daily with prayer and then watch for good fruit. It may take time, but keep at it! **Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

On The Other Side of Sorrow
1275

Noble Alexander was born on February 12, 1934 to Cristobal and Beryl Alexander in San German Oriente, Cuba. He served as an assistant pastor in Cuba from 1959-1962. On March 20, 1962, after preaching a sermon on the origin of sin, he was ambushed and taken to prison where he was tried and convicted of conspiracy to assassinate Fidel Castro, the Communist leader of Cuba. At issue was his sermon, which security forces interpreted to be a veiled reference to Castro’s regime. Noble served over 22 years in prison where he endured hard labor, starvation and lengthy time in solitary confinement. Listen in today as I answer questions from listeners and encourage you to hang in there. For the Believer, JOY is always coming.  Don’t give up! ***Find Links and More at HeidiStJohn.com***

Leviticus contains a lot of rules and regulations that are no longer in place because of the death and resurrection of Jesus—we have been set free from the law—but it’s important that we understand how serious God is about living in a way that honors Him!

With God, All Things are Possible

The story of Jesus’ encounter with a rich man offers us an incredible insight into the heart of human beings. When the disciples how the rich man could not leave his riches to follow Jesus, they rightly thought of their own inward struggles. They were absolutely right to ask Jesus who in the world can be saved, in light of their own sin and selfishness. Jesus answered by famously saying, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God!”  Don’t forget to catch the debates tonight! ***Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

Learning to Let Go and Be Led

Do you remember the very first time you help your child in your arms? Do you remember the weight of responsibility and the incredible love that you felt? Of course you do. I remember feeling overwhelmed at the thought that the hospital staff would let me take home a brand new, 9 pound human being. I mean, let’s be honest… I didn’t know what I was doing! Truly, I was just making it up as I went along. Come to think of it, I’m still doing that in many respects. Most of my seven children are grown now. They are getting married and having children of their own… and I find I am navigating yet another season of motherhood that I will confess to feeling unprepared for. Motherhood is humbling in every stage and in every season. The challenge I am facing now is how to let my children leave. It is both heartbreaking and exhilarating, and I find I am leaning even into the Lord. ***Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

Real Hope and Change
1477

 I will never forget the season when Barack Obama was running for president of the United States. My hunch is that you will never forget it either… his slogan is still with us today. “Hope and change.” It worked, of course. After all, who doesn’t want hope and change? We are a people in dire need of hope!  Here’s the thing though, mom: we need to tell our children the truth about hope. Hope isn’t something that we manufacture. It isn’t something we can get from a politician or even a pastor. We don’t have hope because of a policy or a medical procedure. As Christians, we have hope because of Jesus. ***Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

Casting Out Fear

There is so much fear being put on our children right now. We can never forget that fear is a spirit—and God says that "perfect love casts out fear." As parents, we have an incredible opportunity to teach our children how to thrive in times of anxiety and fear—always remembering that we can’t give what we don’t have. Since we can never know what’s around the corner, we must lean daily into the One who does. We need to be ready to give an answer for the hope that we have in Christ—starting with our children.

Christianity in Crisis: An Overdue Conversation of Biblical Application
1203

Last week, over 2500 Christian leaders, university presidents, magazine editors and pastors signed  "A Christian Statement on Science for Pandemic Times."  They said, "because of our faith in Jesus Christ, we will: wear masks, correct misinformation and get vaccinated," among other things. But is it "Christ-like" to manipulate fellow Believers using Scripture to mandate a vaccine?

Ordinary People Getting #offthebench: a True Story, with Melissa Crabtree—Part 2
1437

My friend and assistant Melissa Crabtree decided to get #offthebench a few weeks ago when a mask mandate and other restrictions were proposed in her city by the city council. Today we're finishing the story of what it has looked like to stand up and rally others to fight for liberty, even with no experience. She's learning along the way, the Lord is bringing others to help, and it's working. The mandate has been voted down twice now in Enid, Oklahoma! Ordinary people are the ones who need to stand up, and Melissa is sharing what she's learned, how Christians can overcome some typical hangups that keep them sitting on the sidelines, why it matters so much. There is a place for everyone to speak up. ***Visit HeidiStJohn.com for links and resources mentioned in podcast!***

Raising Kids Requires Proactive Discipleship
1191

Maybe there's a silver lining in the 'Rona. One of our kids has needed some extra focus on character building, and too much activity - even really good activity, can hinder that development of fruit. Our kids need focused discipleship as they grow, and we have to take the time to do that proactively. Today I'm sharing a little bit of what that looks like in the St. John house.

God is in Control
1437

Jesus reached out to the lepers at great personal risk. Likewise, we need to be who God says we are and be loving the body of Christ. We need to be involved with each other, not forsaking the gathering of believers, and spending time in prayer. The power of prayer isn't based on anything that we do. The God to whom we pray is the Source of the power of prayer. Prayers puts us in touch with our Creator and we can expect incredible things. He can and He will answer us according to His timing and His will. Let's be believers of action and trust Him as we move forward. God is in control, and we are not alone. ***Find links and transcription at HeidiStJohn.com/Podcast***

Jesus showed us how to suffer and not lose heart, how to view suffering, and how to view God in the middle of the struggle. We can honor Him without denying how difficult this situation really is, and I’m sharing some practical tips for doing that right now. He is listening, He loves you, and He can be trusted.

Birth Story Part 2: Practical Tips for the Dads
1546

On Wednesday we heard from my daughter and her husband as they shared their birth story and the challenges that came with it. Today we’re finishing the “living room” conversation about the birth of their baby girl, and Ryan has practical tips for the dads from his own experience—even the third time around. This is a raw, real look inside our tight-knit family… and I think it will bless and encourage you.
Family and a caring community is so important during pregnancy and the postpartum. I’ll be honest: you guys, the first week of Junie’s birth was hard. We all know the weeks around having a baby are expected to be challenging, but adding the stress of this COVID situation is certainly not helping things. Savannah struggled with severe postpartum anxiety—and the Lord helped us through in some pretty amazing ways.
Many of us know someone who’s pregnant right now (you might even be pregnant yourself!) and I think you’ll be encouraged to hear Savannah and  Ryan share their story—unfiltered—about what they learned and what they did that helped.

Hey, everybody. How are you doing? How are you guys doing? This is Heidi St. John. Welcome to the podcast. Today is Wednesday, May 6th. This is episode number 920. And today we’re going to get a little bit real about what’s going on around you and what it means to invite the Lord into every aspect of our lives. Stick around, I think you’re going to be encouraged.
So, I hope you guys are doing good. I feel like the weeks are going by kind of slow right now, like we’re just sort of hanging on for dear life and trying to just follow the Lord in the moment, and follow Him. I know you guys are doing the same thing. This has been a rough season for us for obvious reasons, a rough season for lots of you, and I am particularly grateful for the sponsoring businesses here at the podcast which really are kind of our bread and butter right now. We couldn’t produce the show without them...

Free to Follow: The Beauty of Being Led by the Lord
1317

Mothers are many things. We are nurturers, chauffeurs, cooks, short-order cooks and first-aid providers. We are shoulders to cry on, advice-givers, drivers ed teachers, and broken heart menders. But the most important role we play in the lives of our kids is the role of teacher. As a homeschool mom, I learned a lesson very early in my mothering journey. Where students and teachers are concerned, it’s the teacher learns the most. After all, we can’t teach what we don’t understand. David acknowledges His need to be taught by the Lord in Psalm 143:10. That means we need to learn to follow. Are we being led by the Lord?  Today’s question is from a wife whose husband is emotionally absent. Your marriage is worth fighting for!

The Discipline of Prayer
1172

We often expect God to work in real-time like our smartphones, don’t we?  While He can (and sometimes does) grant answers immediately, He often doesn’t. Rather than blame Him, we can take a step back to realize it took us longer than “immediate” to get into our current mess, and will take longer than a spiritual hot second to bring it into order. Herein lies the “discipline” of prayer. Mama Bear, let’s get wise about how we approach the throne so we can actually know we come in confidence, rather than coming in desperation and confusion.

Do They See Jesus? — MSI Week Four

There is so much to the idea of being ambassadors! An ambassador does not speak to please his audience, but the king who sent him. An ambassador does not speak on his own authority; his own opinions or demands mean little. He simply says what he has been commissioned to say. But an ambassador is more than a messenger; he is also a representative, and the honor and reputation of his country are in his hands.  Join me as I dig into week four our of study “Ambassador” from MomStrong International!

The Power (not pressure!) of Hospitality| MSI Week Two
1212

God has extended safety and belonging to us, and He calls us to do the same to others. It would work well for the enemy to trick people into believing that the practice of hospitality requires a large budget, large amounts of time, or a large home. All of those are lies. Your house doesn’t have to be perfect and your budget doesn’t either. Being hospitable is important to God, and He speaks of it in the Word as one clear way we love others.
