Fear 05: The Replay

What would happen if we were prepared for the storms of life? What would it look like to cultivate faith that can weather a job loss, or a child?s illness, or our friends rejecting us for our faith? In this episode, we have a special treat?a message from Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth on being a woman who trusts the Lord in the face of fear. Teaching from Proverbs 31:21-25, she encourages us to be proactive?not reactive?to the storms of life.  If you?re looking for practical help in facing your fears, or ever wanted to understand what it means to be a true Proverbs 31 woman, this message is for you!

Fear 04: The Perspective

Do you feel alone in your fears? Do you look around at your friends and neighbors and wonder if there is anyone who understands what you?re facing?

They remind us that God gave us the gift of other believers? in our local churches, the global church, and even in church history?to strengthen our faith, give us courage, and help us know we have friends in the fight.

Fear 03: The Principles

Whether we fear an imminent threat or an unlikely scenario, we?re often left wondering how to respond. Maybe we?re more likely to hide and shy away from any possible conflict or to react sharply, boldly fighting back before we?ve sought the Lord. As we face our fears, it?s helpful to stop to think?where is this coming from and what biblical truths apply? In this episode, Emily and Laura talk through how we handle frightening things, giving us principles for facing our fears both big and small, and pointing us to the peace that Christ brings.

Fear 02: The Examination

Have you ever wondered why we experience fear in the first place? In this episode, we?re going back to our roots!  Laura and Emily examine fear through the gospel lens?creation, fall, redemption, consummation?reminding us that our fears have an explanation. It hasn?t always been this way, and because of Christ, it won?t be this way forever! If you?re new here or been with us since the beginning, we hope you?ll be encouraged to see your fears in light of the greatest story?God?s story. 

Note: We know that ?fear? covers a wide variety of issues?some so lighthearted that we can easily brush them off, and some so disturbing that we can barely utter them to our closest friend. This series is aimed at the most common fears in motherhood?the things that cross our minds and motivate our daily actions. But due to the limitations of our knowledge and the brevity of a 7-episode series we don?t aim to address life?s most complex and sober terrors. Please keep in mind that some instances and experiences of fear may require professional counseling, pastoral care, or a medical doctor.  If you find yourself in a situation that feels much larger than the topics we cover in this series, we encourage you to seek help from professionals who are trained to care for you best in this struggle.

Motherhood offers no shortage of reasons to fear, which is why we?re doing a deep dive into the topic in this mini-series.

Practice Makes Progress | Ep. 180

As moms, we all fall short of the glory of God day after day. So we need to preach the gospel to ourselves again and again. But how do we actually do that? In this episode, Emily and Laura share how reminding yourself of the gospel is an important part of the Christian walk?but it requires some practice. To preach the gospel, we have to know the gospel. It?s the only thing that keeps us from being defined by the time we yelled in the car or hid in the pantry stress-eating dark chocolate. Momma, your true identity is secure in Christ?offering peace, hope, and joy in every moment.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year | Ep. 177

One of the most exciting things we can teach our children is that Jesus came to earth as a tiny baby and that he?s coming back as the King. This past-and-future perspective is at the heart of the Advent season as we celebrate what has happened and wait expectantly for what is to come. In this episode, Emily and Laura explain the meaning of Advent, share ways to celebrate, and encourage moms to find freedom in the Christmas season. Instead of running into the holidays with added pressure of one more thing, we can look to Christ and celebrate the gospel story in our homes from an overflow of joy.

I Wouldn?t Do It That Way | Ep. 176

It?s natural to prefer spending time with moms who share similar parenting values, lifestyle choices, and special interests with us. On the other hand, most of us can instantly think of a mom we avoid, because she makes us uncomfortable with her views in a gray-area of motherhood. These feelings beg the question, ?How should we love and interact with those who do motherhood differently than us, especially when those differences breed difficulties?? In this episode, Emily and Laura apply the gospel to these challenging relationships, remembering that the cross levels all of us. Because of the extravagant grace shown to us, we can now love others who are different, even when it?s hard.

Let?s Just Skip This | Ep. 174

Moms know that you don?t start reading a storybook in the middle! If you skip the first half, your kids miss important aspects of the plot and the character development. Instead, you start at the very beginning and view all of the parts as a whole. But for some reason, when it comes to the Bible, we often toss that concept aside and go straight for the easier-to-understand New Testament books. In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss the importance of reading the Old Testament, citing eight reasons why it really matters! Processing the entire Bible in light of the cross is critical for us (and our kiddos) to rightly understand God's epic redemption story.

Knowing Your Limits with Hannah Anderson | Ep. 173

We know we should be grateful for the gifts God has given us in motherhood. But instead, we may find ourselves battling discontentment, anxiety, and stress over our inability to keep up with even the simplest tasks. In this episode, Emily and Laura talk with author Hannah Anderson about her book Humble Roots. Hannah applies gospel-truth to challenging topics like postpartum body image, vocational or ministry calling, and dealing with the temptation to live for our ideal version of motherhood instead of God's plan for us. This conversation is candid, challenging, and leaves much to be considered as Hannah offers an opportunity for weary moms to rest by accepting their limitations and letting God be God.

You Don?t Have to be Scared | Ep. 172

Evangelism is an essential part of the Christian life?so why does it feel so overwhelming and awkward? Maybe you worry you?ll say the wrong thing or offend someone. But when you think about it, is there anything better or more beautiful than sharing Christ? In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss some common pitfalls we experience in evangelism and the gospel hope that drives us to try again. From the people in our homes to those we see in our communities, we can share the greatest news of Christ?s resurrection by simply sharing what he did and how the gospel impacts our own lives!

Quick Fix | Ep. 171

Scroll through Pinterest or eavesdrop in a coffee shop and you might see or hear something along the lines of, ?All I need is a whole lotta of Jesus and a little bit of coffee/tacos/Netflix/sleep.? While it?s usually said in jest, we all have little crutches that we tend to rely on when we?re in survival mode. In this episode, Emily and Laura talk about potential crutches in motherhood like wine, shopping, or social media. While these things may make us feel good temporarily, only Christ is the source of our greatest and lasting joy. So momma, let?s go back to the cross and fix our eyes on the only one able to sustain, encourage, grow, and help us in every situation?Jesus.

Sovereign Over the Sad | Ep. 170

The daily hardships of motherhood weigh on us?difficult decisions, potty training, sleeplessness, and more. But sometimes we experience deeper, more profound suffering that makes us cry out, ?Why God?? In this episode, Emily and Laura offer gospel encouragement for those in the midst of deep suffering. Suffering is different for everyone, but scripture offers unshakeable hope in every situation. Since God didn?t excuse himself from suffering, one day?through Christ?our suffering will give way to joy.

Kids Say the Darndest Things with Trillia Newbell | Ep. 169

Kids say the darndest things sometimes, don?t they? Maybe it?s a comment about someone?s hair while you?re in line at the grocery store or they ask a question about someone?s dialect when you have a neighbor over for dinner, but no matter where it happens, it?s normal for children to show curiosity about God?s diverse design. In this episode, Trillia Newbell joins Emily and Laura to share practical ways we can explain God?s very good idea about diversity to our children, exposing them to different types of people with joy and transparency. The gospel speaks a better word than our culture?affirming that all people are made in the image of God and should be loved as such.

Should I Do This? | Ep. 168

You know that little voice in your head? The one that pipes up when you feel guilt over letting your kids eat too many cookies or sets off an internal alarm when you watch something questionable? All of us have one, but it?s not necessarily the Holy Spirit. What is it exactly? In this episode, Emily and Laura explore the topic of personal conscience. God gave us a conscience to help discern what?s right and wrong in the everyday ?gray? areas of life. While it can be dulled by sin, God can recalibrate our consciences through the study of his word and fellowship with believers, so we can do all things in faith with love.

Parenting alongside your husband can sometimes feel awkward and bumpy. We want to be intentional, but it can seem like we have wildly different styles and strategies than our spouses! In this episode, Emily and Laura dive into the topic of marital unity. Even though we have different upbringings, personalities, strengths, and weaknesses, God has joined us in marriage for his mission. He designed for us to do it together! Through Christ, we can have humility, forgive one another, refocus on our mission, and live in unity with our husbands as we parent together.

Let's Reset | Ep. 166

Even when it seems like you've done everything right as a mom, inevitably, things still don't go as planned. Someone disobeys, comes down with a fever, talks back or leaves their toy on the ground for you to step on, and in no time...you blow it. Your hopes for a near-perfect day are dashed, leaving you wondering if there's even any point in trying. On today's episode, Emily and Laura talk about those bad moments and how we?re tempted to let them dominate our whole day. But we don't have to get stuck there, because our identity in Christ means we can keep pursuing holiness, even when we sin or our circumstances aren?t ideal. When we have faith that the Spirit of Christ works in us and we want to live in light of our redemption, we can press on in faithfulness. Momma, will you join us?

Whether we?re answering a hard question, navigating a public meltdown, or wading through a sibling conflict, as moms, we?re well-acquainted with the benefits of pausing to consider the best next steps. Reflecting instead of reacting can help us keep our eyes on the gospel.

Change is a Good Thing, Part 2 | Ep. 164

As much as we may desire to live with eternal purpose and become more like Christ, some days we?re doing well just to keep the diapers changed?much less figure out how we can change. In this episode, Emily and Laura get practical about how we change into the image of Christ. Drawing from David Powlison?s book, How Does Sanctification Work?, they unpack five things that contribute to our growth in godliness. God is changing us and using our lives for something that matters as we live faithfully from one moment (or diaper change) to the next.

Change is a Good Thing, Part 1 | Ep. 163

As you make the meals, change the diapers, settle the arguments, and fold the laundry day after day, do you ever wonder if any of it really matters? With so many immediate needs in front of us, it can be easy to lose sight of our eternal purpose. In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss some simple (yet profound) truths that help clarify our destination and goal as believers in Christ. When we remember that we?re being conformed to the image of Jesus and one day we?ll dwell with him for eternity, we can hold things loosely in this life and embrace our role as servants doing the Master?s work?even if it?s the same work day after day.

John Piper?s Encouragement for Moms in Suffering | Ep. 162

Read alouds aren?t just for our little ones. We can find great encouragement and joy in having the word of God read over us and explained. So in this special episode, Emily and Laura invite John Piper to read and reflect on what he considers to be the greatest chapter in the Bible, Romans 8. As he walks us through this incredible passage, John Piper connects its themes of suffering and loss to motherhood, encouraging us that no matter how deep the waters of our suffering, God?s unshakeable love is deeper still.

The Little Years Are Not the Lost Years | Ep. 157

The Bible is the timeless word of God, but finding time to study it as a mom of young children can feel nearly impossible. Does it count as a quiet time if we?re surrounded by noisy children? How is it possible that no matter how early we wake up for Bible study, our children seem to wake up earlier? The little years bring real struggles for spending time in God?s word, but there?s hope! In this special bonus episode, Emily and Laura share a chapter from their book, Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments, called, ?The Little Years are Not the Lost Years.? In it, they offer encouragement and practical tips for spending time in God?s word and growing in our love for the gospel, even during busy seasons of motherhood.

When Motherhood Feels Lonely: Nurturing Friendship in Motherhood | Ep. 156

On one hand, we may feel like we?re never alone as moms?even going to the bathroom often becomes a family activity! On the other hand, motherhood can feel lonely and isolating. Caring for our families often leaves little time and energy for nurturing our friendships. But we?re not meant to live in isolation?we need friends who point us to Christ and encourage us in our mission! In this episode, Emily and Laura invite four women to share their thoughts on navigating friendship in the busyness of motherhood. Though we may need to adjust our expectations and find creative ways to connect, we can still have meaningful friendships in the midst of motherhood.

How Do I Pray for my Kids?: An Interview on Faithful Motherhood with Kristie Anyabwile | Ep. 155

Prayer seems like one of the most basic parts of the Christian life, but it can also be one of the most confusing. What exactly is prayer? What should we pray for? Are there things we shouldn?t pray for? How do we teach our kids to pray? In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss these questions and more with Kristie Anyabwile. Kristie shares from her wisdom and experience, encouraging us to go boldly and confidently to the Lord in prayer.

When You Don?t Know How to Discipline | Ep. 154

If the word ?discipline? makes you feel confused, discouraged, or even defeated, you?re not alone! As our children transition from sweet, snuggly babies into tantrum-throwing toddlers, we can see that they need discipline, but knowing how to discipline is a different matter. We may wonder whether there?s a ?right? way or a ?Christian? way to discipline. We may even find ourselves wishing someone would just give us a cheat sheet with all the answers! In this episode, Emily shares some of her experience trying to make sense of discipline. Although there?s no clear-cut system to fix all of our discipline struggles, she helps us think about discipline through the lens of scripture and discusses seven practical things we can do when we don?t know how to discipline.

Can A Mom Actually Practice Sabbath? | Ep. 153

Busy. Distracted. Overwhelmed. Worn out. Are these the inevitable characteristics of motherhood? Or is there another way? In this episode, Laura shares her journey from ?hurry sickness? to rest. She helps clarify the biblical practice of Sabbath and explains how orienting one day of the week toward rest and worship can change all the other days. Even moms can find Sabbath rest as our hands do good while our hearts rest in the gospel!

Mothering in a World of Differences | Ep. 152

Dealing with differences can be hard. How do we engage with others who have very different life experiences, beliefs, or preferences than we do? How do we guide our children as they encounter these same challenges? In this episode, Emily and Laura invite four women to share how the truth that we?re all made in the image of God, or Imago Dei, impacts their motherhood and relationships. While it?s okay to be aware of our differences, the gospel reminds us that we?re all the same in one fundamentally important way?we?re created in the image of God. So whether we share many things in common or seemingly nothing at all, we can love our neighbors as God has loved us.

Motherhood When We Can?t See the Outcome | Ep. 151

Does all of the time, effort, and heart we put into motherhood really make a difference? When we make meals that end up on the floor, wash load after load of laundry, and discipline our children for the same behaviors day after day, it?s easy to wonder if motherhood makes an eternal impact. In this episode, Emily and Laura talk with Elyse Fitzpatrick and Eric Schumacher (authors of Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women) about how moms matter in the redemptive story of the Bible. They help us see how God used the ordinary faithfulness of moms in scripture to lead to the birth of Jesus, and they encourage us that God is still working through moms just like us to carry out his plan of redemption in the lives of our children and beyond.

Pay Your Dues Now: Living for Another Life | Ep. 150

Most of us have heard it. Some of us have said it. There?s a common encouragement to moms of littles that if we ?pay our dues now? or if we?re ?faithful in the small things? then there will be bigger things coming later as our unseen sacrifices give way to visible fruit. In this episode, Emily and Laura unpack this idea, helping us see that while it comes from a very right desire to encourage faithfulness in following Christ, it may lead us to wrong expectations. Rather than serving the Lord looking ahead to ?better? things he might give us later, we can be content in serving him now, because he has already given us the best thing in his Son.

?Mom, stop looking at your phone!? | Ep. 149

Being a mom can feel isolating. Our children may be our constant companions, but we often long to interact with other adults, and social media can be a fun and easy way to connect. But with statistics showing that the average person spends 2.5 hours a day on social media, we?re wise to consider how it affects our ability to live out the calling of motherhood. In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss how social media is designed to draw us in and how it might influence our hearts and actions more than we may realize. They offer practical boundaries for social media use and encourage us to consider whether that use of  time is beneficial to our growth in Christ. It?s important for Christians to be present on social media, but we don?t want our presence there to come at the cost of loving God and others.

Making Decisions: How do I Choose Wisely in Motherhood? | Ep. 148

We make so many decisions in motherhood. Daily, we consider things like, what snack should I feed my child? How much screen time should they have? What discipline strategy should I use for this tantrum? And we also ask deeper, bigger questions like, how should we handle their schooling? What church should our family go to? How much time should we spend away from our kids? In today?s episode, Emily and Laura discuss how they each process decision-making and the many factors that influence the final outcome. God calls each of us to a dependent life that aligns with our deepest desire?to love and live like Christ in all we do, big and small.

Boxes & Moving Trucks: Enduring Transitions with Grace | Ep. 144

Moving is hard. One day, you?re packing a box faster than your toddler can unpack it, and the next, you need Google maps to find the kids? new school. Your family can feel uprooted, discouraged, exhilarated, and adventurous all on the same day. In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss the challenges of moving with littles (which overlaps with any season of transition!). While moving is hard and full of unknowns, we can be sure God has a plan, and it?s a good one. These days, months, or even years aren?t throwaway seasons. By God?s grace, they?re times of pruning and growth in our hearts, leading us to joy in Christ?not our circumstances.

Body After Baby: Moms Share How The Gospel Changes Their Perspective | Ep. 141

Stretch marks, loose skin, and under-eye circles?oh my! Many moms stand a little awkwardly before the mirror, examining their postpartum bodies. We may know the world?s standard isn?t a true one, but how do we find peace with our new bodies? In this episode, Emily and Laura invite five women to share how the gospel changes their outlook on their postpartum bodies. While we?re tempted to focus on what we think our bodies should be today, the gospel reminds us that our hope isn?t in our flesh. Instead, these bodies reminds us that our hope is in Jesus alone?who willingly bore our sins, scarring his perfect body to give us life. This hope gives us grateful hearts, so we can care for and steward the body we have today as a vessel for good works.

?I?m Just So Worried About It!?: How to Change Our Worry to Worship | Ep. 140

Moms are no strangers to worry. We daily consider the possibility of danger, hurt feelings, or stressful situations. We turn hypothetical situations around in our heads, trying to find solutions, but it feels like everything is just beyond our control. And so we worry. In this episode, Emily and Laura discuss how the gospel changes our worry. As moms in a broken world, we know we?re going to ask ourselves, ?What if?? and, ?What then?? But what do we do when we start to dwell on those questions? We train our minds with the promises of God found in Christ. As our trust in God?s care deepens, our worry can become worship.

Mothering as Service: Stewardship & Sacrifice | Ep. 139

It?s easy to think of things that are more fun than doing dishes or putting shoes back where they belong. But serving in motherhood often means sacrificing what we want in order to care for those around us in service to Christ. We know we?re called to be living sacrifices, but what are we supposed to do when the ?sacrifice? part is uncomfortable? In this episode, Emily and Laura examine another angle of being a living sacrifice: service. Working hard to serve others isn?t an obstacle to fun or freedom. It?s the pathway to joy in Christ.

Mothering Through Burnout: Stewardship & Sacrifice | Ep. 138

Sometimes we serve ourselves into exhaustion, and sometimes we avoid serving to keep ourselves comfortable. Neither extreme is good. Many of us have heard that we?re called to be a living sacrifice, but what does that mean? In this episode, Emily and Laura examine one angle of being a living sacrifice: burnout. While not every mom experiences full burnout, many of us believe our work proves our worth or the world depends on us. If these lies motivate us, we?ll live as though we?re limitless until we?re unable to do anything well. But a heart abiding in Christ knows we can work faithfully and restfully within our limitations, which are for God?s glory and our good.

We see each other every week at church, but our relationships can grow into more than just a quick wave in the lobby while a toddler hangs from our knee.

In this episode, the Risen Motherhood team shares how their local church communities have helped them in various seasons.

Give Me All the Gurus: Where To Find True Answers to Our Motherhood Questions | Ep. 136

Most of us have our favorite ?experts? or ?gurus??the voices we turn to for tips, tricks, and how-tos. We love the ability to learn something quickly by scrolling through our social media feeds. But should Christians solely depend on the ?experts? of our culture to learn how to live a faithful life? In this episode, Emily and Laura examine why we like our gurus so much. While they are often be helpful, we?re called to unconditionally follow only one expert: Jesus. In Christ, God gives us the Holy Spirit to teach and train us in wisdom according to God?s word. We can still enjoy the gurus, but we know the source of all wisdom is God alone.
