Discover how to exchange fear for faith in any area of your life — whether you’re a new mom, your children are becoming more independent, or you’re gaining hope and vision for the future. Leslie shares inspiring stories from her own motherhood journey that will encourage you in any season of life and provides you with Christ-focused truth that can steady and silence the worries and fears that knock at the door of our hearts.
The influence that mothers can have on their children through the power of prayer is nothing short of amazing! When we make God our first turn, we are setting ourselves and our children up for spiritual success and not failure. The power of prayer is a little known secret to confident living and confident mothering.
It all begins with entrusting your children into God’s capable and protective hands — knowing and resting in the fact that God cares so much more for your kids than even you do. Our God will be faithful, but we must first give Him the opportunity to prove himself so in our lives and then in the lives of our children. Never usurp God’s position as the Ultimate Protector and Provider of your children.
Rather than being caught up in the perfectionism trap that many moms resort to, take courage and comfort in the fact that even if we don’t do things perfectly, we are walking with the Perfect One who can turn any misstep for our good and for His glory.
Remember that motherhood is not about your ability, but Gods — His strength, not yours. Face the challenges of your journey with liquid ferocity like how David approached the giant Goliath and watch in wonder what your God will do.
This is not something we have to rise up to accomplish in our own strength. It’s a decision to obey God’s pattern for motherhood.
