_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…
 
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…

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…
 
Today we have a real treat for you! In our final episode in the Obedience series we’re bringing you a talk from Elisabeth Elliot—a message to challenge and encourage all of us. She asks questions like “whose agenda are you following?” and “how do I respond when I feel like God isn’t supplying my needs?” If you wonder if God has forgotten you, withh…
 
Maybe you’ve gotten this far into the conversation about obedience and you’re still wondering if it’s all about restrictions? Or maybe you want to obey but keep finding yourself in a pattern of sin? Maybe you’re skeptical about God’s demand for perfection and you’re not sure who can really measure up? Come behind the scenes in this episode, as Laur…
 
Obedience is hard when the sun is shining and life is good, but what about when the storm clouds come? When you get a scary diagnosis, or your business goes bankrupt, or your friend rejects you for your faith—this is when obedience feels costly, even like death. The Bible might tell us to expect suffering, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy when it co…
 
When it comes to obedience, we’re all prone to errors. Maybe we say “freedom in Christ!” to justify our actions instead of doing what we know is right, or maybe we live with a constant stream of condemning thoughts instead of resting in the righteousness of Christ. Some of us put off obedience until tomorrow, and some of us are locked in a cycle of…
 
Deep down, we want to know we’re doing motherhood right. That we’re not failing or heading down the wrong path in life. This is true for our everyday choices about meals, screens, activities, and the way we spend our time. But it’s also true for how we work through tough relationships, respond to our kid’s hard questions, and make life-changing dec…
 
Obedience. That’s an outdated word, right? But really, our questions in motherhood about where to send our kids to school, what to feed them, and even how we spend our time and money, boils down to this. We don’t want to fail, so we wonder what to obey, how to obey, and how to keep going when we stumble. Essentially, we want to know what it looks l…

When you’re afraid, it’s so helpful to rehearse God’s word. But it can be hard to find a quiet place, or even time, to read and think about what God’s promises mean for your situation.

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? Fear can be so isolating, but the good news is, we aren’t alone! In this episode, Laura and Emily introduce us to moms who’ve gone before us. They remind us that God gave us the gift of other believers—…
 
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 …
 
Have you ever wondered why we experience fear in the first place? In this episode, we’re going back to our roots!

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, …
 
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.
