The dishes pile up. The kids run circles around the house. The to-do list is a mile long. Motherhood is full, but too often, we fill our time hunching over our phones, giving our best self to social media instead of looking up at the work in front of us. When we don’t know where to begin, social media feels like a welcome distraction. But when our …
 
Rachel talks about her new book Comfort in Times of Uncertainty, Rachel answers a question from a family who are wondering if it's worth going to church with their child with additional needs if they can’t really engage, and Becky shares her thoughts on the book Mama Bear Apologetics.By Parenting for Faith
 
It’s easy to pick on social media, but for all of its challenges, we also believe it can be used for good. In this special bonus episode, Emily and Laura provide four quick ways we can use social media redemptively. When we use our social platforms to obviously or subtly point to Christ, we provide an opportunity for someone to encounter the beauty…
 
As proud moms, most of us can’t resist sharenting. (Yep, that term is real! If you haven’t heard it before: it just means sharing pictures of our kids online.) Whether we have a small, private account for friends and family or share lifestyle content for thousands of eyes to see, let’s at least ask the question—why are we posting this? What are the…
 
“Mom influencers.” How does that term hit? Some of us love them. Some of us roll our eyes at them. Sometimes we do both. But either way, we might not realize how influencers shape our motherhood—the pans we buy, the parenting methods we use, and the pacifiers we purchase. Whether you’re on social media or not, you’ve been influenced! In this specia…
 
Let’s get real: we all want to be liked. No matter where we are on the social media spectrum, from a professional content creator on Instagram to an occasional poster for the sake of the grandparents, God’s principles for the way we share content remain the same. In this episode, Emily and Laura walk through questions to consider as we seek to hono…
 
We’ve all been there. We’re innocently scrolling through social media and then we feel a tinge of guilt, anger, or sadness. We get on social media to relax or escape from the world, and find ourselves feeling worse than ever. Cancel culture. Shame. Outrage. Judgement. Where does this all come from? How do we deal with it? In this episode of the pod…
 
Whether we recognize it or not, social media is changing us. It changes how we interact with people. It even changes our motherhood—what we buy, what strategies we use, and where we go for hope and help. In the first episode of our social media mini-series, Laura and Emily invite us to wake-up to the impact of social media on our lives. If we want …
 
Blair Linne’s personal story of growing up without a father at home reflects the experiences of millions. In her new book, Finding my Father she shows us that the gospel promises not just forgiveness but also a place in God's family, experienced in a local church, where they we can enjoy the fullness of his fatherly joy, care, wisdom, provision, pr…
 
At the height of his influence, C.S. Lewis was broadcasting his Mere Christianity lectures to almost 1.5 million people. There is so much we can learn from him. You may feel inadequate to the task of evangelism, but in his new book Randy Newman skillfully helps us to apply the methods Lewis used (storytelling, humour, imagery and more) in our own c…
 
Many people assume that the story of the baby in the manger at Bethlehem is just another made-up fantasy for kids. In this episode we talked to respected apologist Rebecca McLaughlin about the evidence that Jesus was a real person, explaining the reliability of the Bible’s accounts of his life and why believing in a virgin birth is not as ridiculou…
 
_Surprise! We have an extra show for you! Don’t worry, you didn’t get the day wrong. It’s not a Wednesday, but we loved talking about prayer so we just kept going. Maybe you’re left wondering “how do I actually get started with prayer?” Or you’ve started the habit countless times before, but always end up fizzling out. Emily jumped back behind the …
 
What do you do when you don’t feel like praying? Like the disciples in the garden with Jesus, you want to do the right thing, but you just can’t stay awake. Or you have the invite to the prayer meeting, but you would rather stay home to watch TV. In the final episode of the Prayer mini-series, Laura and Emily talk about the elephant in the room—som…
 
When children have something on their minds, they tend to run to their parents and caregivers. Wouldn’t it be great if they also learned that they can talk to God about anything and everything because Jesus has made that possible? In this episode we chat to Laura Wifler, co-founder of Risen Motherhood about her new kids book Any Time, Any Place, An…
 
We believe prayer is important—even necessary—but where do we even begin? Listen in as Laura chats with a seasoned mom of six boys (yes, six!). You may know Ruth Chou Simons as the founder of Gracelaced and from her award-winning books. But we’re also thankful for her as one of the Risen Motherhood Board Members, so we’re excited to share her mothe…
 
What if we didn’t have to choose between an intelligent faith and a passionate one? Right thinking. Right feeling. Deep thoughts about God...for a deeper experience of God. Too often Christians live their spiritual experience in two distinct camps. In this episode of the podcast we talk to Adam Ramsey about his new book Truth on Fire and his manife…
 
Prayer is not a box to check during nap time. It’s something the whole family can get involved in, even when nap time is non-existent! In today’s episode, listen in as two moms, Laura and her friend Hunter Beless (whom you may know from the The Journeywomen Podcast!) share practical tips for praying as a family. They remind us that while it’s good …
 
When it comes to prayer, kids have all the questions. Why do we say “amen?” Do I need to close my eyes? But moms have lots of questions about prayer too. Do I pray to God or can I pray to Jesus? How do I teach my kids reverence in prayer? In today’s episode, Laura and Emily tackle some frequently asked questions with biblical answers and personal a…
 
Why is it so hard to pray? We know prayer is essential, but like the discipline of healthy eating, we turn to the chips instead of the veggies. We choose the quick fix, rather than the thing that sustains. In the first episode of our mini-series on prayer, Emily and Laura talk about our common struggles with prayer, the benefits of this essential h…
