Podcasts and Posts from The Busy Mom
Courageous Mothering: Encouragement for the Weary Mom – podcast – There are so many things pulling at mothers in this generation—the tug-of-war over our hearts is intentional. Fear, distractions, worry. Satan’s goal is to distract moms from what really matters—the bringing up of our children. While the world will tell you to mother your kids from your own strength—God has another way! He wants to replace your weakness with His strength in a beautiful exchange. Your job has never been more important than it is right now.
A Spiritual Battle – podcast – The Bible says we do not struggle against flesh and blood, we are engaged in a spiritual battle. There really is wickedness in this world, so we need to be looking at the world with spiritual eyes. We cannot fight this spiritual battle using a carnal weapons like manipulation or unkind words. We need to be using the weapons of prayer and application of the Word of God. Those are the weapons we use to engage in spiritual warfare! We read in Ephesians 6 that we are to put on the belt of truth and buckle it around our waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and fit our feet with the gospel of peace. God is telling us over and over again that the battle we fight is a spiritual battle.
A Powerful Partnership – post – God gives children to us as “arrows” in the hands of a warrior. That makes you a warrior, busy mom! And you’re not just a run-of-the-mill warrior, either—you are an archer. You’re in the arrow-launching business!
Spiritual Protection for Your Children by Neil T Anderson – How do parents help their children find their own spiritual freedom, allowing them to grow in independence and strength in Christ? Pete and Sue Vander Hook, a typical Christian pastor and his family, learned the hard way how the enemy can infiltrate a seemingly secure Christian home and wreak havoc on a family. It details their dramatic journey and shows how parents can provide a protective covering for their home. Neil Anderson then provides follow-up steps on how to take authority of your home and secure your family’s spiritual well-being. Spiritual Protection for Your Children also provides “The Steps to Freedom” adapted for use with 0-4 year olds (i.e. how to take authority on behalf of your preschool age child), 5-8 year olds; and 9-12 years olds
Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer by Priscilla Shirer – You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted. So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit.
