Episode #31: Our Girls Don’t Belong Here (and that’s good)

The girls get deep in this one! Right off the bat, they lay the foundation that they’re NOT advocating for the existence of aliens. However, they ARE talking about how followers of Christ are “aliens and strangers” in this world. We currently live in the world, but it’s not our forever home. Hallelujah! And they discuss how helping our girls understand that can give them peace about their “itchy feelings” of not fitting in.

    Episode #10

    #10 Does God Care What Your Daughter Wears?

    Matthew Henry’s commentary on Proverbs 31:25: ‘Strength and honour are her clothing, in which she wraps herself . . . and in which she appears to the world. . . . She enjoys a firmness and constancy of mind, has spirit to bear up under the many crosses and disappointments which even the wise and virtuous must expect to meet with in this world; and this is her clothing”.
    Episode #6

    #6 Helping Your Daughter Love Her Bible

    Is your daughter intimidated by the Bible? Like, by the actual book? It’s big! It’s not all linear. Different versions don’t feel like everyday language. It has tons of words in it and some of those words are unusual. We asked a focus group of moms this question: “Does your daughter have regular time in God’s Word and prayer?” 30% of the moms said “yes.” The remaining 70% said either “No” or “I don’t know.” Maybe it’s because the girls think the Book itself is intimidating. Today’s episode will help you make the Bible feel more approachable for your daughter (and for you!).
    Episode #3

But here's a spoiler alert: Your daughter's most influential worship leader might be looking right back at you in the mirror! You'll leave today's episode with three practical ways to simply and comfortably up the worship level in your home.
