Mom to Mom Podcast
Summary: Hey, there! We're Kate Battistelli, September McCarthy, and Jamie Erickson--three generations of moms who have experienced nearly every season of motherhood. We don’t have all the answers, but you can be sure that we’ll always point you to the One who does.
There is no greater gift to give your children than God's Word hidden in their hearts. Motherhood is a wide-open invitation to living a life led and loved by Jesus. You are the walking, talking example of God’s love they will remember. Today, we want to talk about the two biggest obstacles that intimidate us from teaching our kids about Jesus: Time and Knowledge. God’s Word is not intimidating, but it is our fear of not bringing it alive that can sometimes stall us.
We’ve all heard the saying, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Right? I hate to tell you, friends, but that saying couldn’t be further from the truth! Proverbs 18:21 tells us, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Today we’re talking all things words--how our words are either going to build up or tear down our children (not to mention husbands and all the other people in our lives!)
Thank you for joining in the conversation today as we chat about allowing other women into your space, tearing down the walls of fear in perfection, and asking for help from Biblical Mentors. We know that Motherhood can feel lonely and isolating. But, Titus-2 type relationships can create safe places to not only get answers and directions but also to feel loved and encouraged.
We are 3 generations of moms--each about 10 years apart--whose paths to motherhood have all been unique. Though our methods and perspectives are quite different, our mission is the same: to draw others, especially our children, to the Gospel. In this episode, we share our greatest mothering struggles and strengths.
