Parenting is a Spiritual Act of Worship

Being a mother is a full-time job with plenty of ups and downs. Sometimes the responsibility can be overwhelming as circumstances become challenging. In those times, we are called to keep our eyes on Jesus – dying to ourselves, focusing on the unseen, fighting in prayer and trusting God to change hearts. For the mother who follows Christ, parenting is often less about the behavior modification of our children and more about the posture of our hearts before a holy God.

Mom it Out

Ah, the many hats of single motherhood… embracing the art of multitasking, maintaining some sanity, and being “present” can be exhausting. We need practical ways to both share and receive quality presence in the day to day chaos. Living well in the present means setting healthy boundaries and pursuing whole health – mentally, emotionally, physically, relationally and spiritually. Without balance, we are spent! But when we create a life lived well in the present, we can live and love with freedom, and MOM IT OUT with sanity

A Woman’s Worth

When we want to know the worth of something, we go to the maker. For example, if we want to know the worth of an iPhone, we go to Apple. Or if we’re curious about the worth of a Michael Kors bag, shouldn’t we ask Michael himself? Well, how about OUR significance? And who’s OUR maker? Shouldn’t we consult HIM? Join Kenya as she challenges us to eliminate the encumbrances that keep us in bondage, hindering us from embracing our truest identity and experiencing the fullness of God.
