In this episode of At Home, @kristinrogers leads us in a discussion for the discouraged mother. She starts by asking us to share something we were discouraged by that very week, and then some practical ways we deal with our discouragement.
We also discuss other things our fellow mamas are discouraged by, from a messy house, to a messy view of our bodies, and messy mothering. There is such a lot we can be discouraged about, isn’t there?
But I have to tell you guys, this episode doesn’t leave you there. In fact, I came away from listening to this for the second time feeling so encouraged.
Between the four of us, there are so many different ideas mentioned for dealing with discouragement. Some of them are simple things for when we are just having a bad day. And others are much deeper, for when we are struggling with bigger things.
We hope you, too, will be encouraged as you listen to this episode. We want each of you to know you are loved by God and that He cares about your hurts and your cares.
We also wanted to ask you all to show us grace in this episode as our sound was a bit off. We had troubles with our sound board and mixer, a helicopter flying overhead, and kids playing baseball in the street outside It was a rough night for recording.
So thanks always for listening, even when our sound not quite right. We appreciate all of you listeners!
- Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flow’rs before Thee,
Op’ning to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the light of day!
