There's something we've noticed in ourselves and in moms around us ... a heaviness, and a need for burdens to be lifted. A need for there to be less on our plates, less on our minds, and less on our hearts.

If moms hear one more thing that they aren't doing right, it seems that we will all collectively hit our knees in mourning and despair. There are enough hard things, and it is so easy to just stay there. We cope in a myriad of ways: we joke, we eye roll, we let our kids go untrained and undisciplined, we escape, we eat, we exercise, we work, we do whatever we can to get out from underneath the weight of our calling.

We go everywhere except the one place that not only lifts our burdens, but replaces them with giant helium balloons. 

Moms need refreshing truth to be repeated over and over and over. In every moment - when we think are doing good enough job and when we think we are the worst mom on the planet. And that's what we care about communicating here at Risen Motherhood:

The good news that when we live in light of the resurrection of Christ, we can have a secure identity and be part of a bigger story - God's redemption story.

This is a community that will remind you of gospel-truth, no matter how you feel about your motherhood. It's for the imperfect mother, still learning, still growing and still fully recognizing she doesn't have it all together - but we serve a God who does.

 

 

 

Risen Motherhood exists to encourage, equip and challenge moms to apply the gospel to their everyday lives. We do this through providing gospel-centered content through a podcast, blog, and social media. In addition, Risen Motherhood creates Bible study tools to help moms abide in God’s word, coming to a first-hand knowledge of God’s will for their lives. Finally, we connect women to theologically-sound and edifying outside resources to help them grow in their role as a mom.

What I wouldn’t have given for a podcast like Risen Motherhood in my early years of mothering! With just the right mix of grace and truth, Laura and Emily remind listeners of the hundred ways that God nurtures and cares for us while we nurture and care for our own children. Risen Motherhood is the perfect companion to those long weary days and sleepless nights, bringing you grace upon God’s good grace.

“The ladies at Risen Motherhood believe the gospel is *the* good news for moms— that there’s no better news, practical tips, or wise advice that could be shared. The gospel alone is the power of God for salvation. I commend this gospel-centered ministry to every mom who wants to see how Jesus is with her in her mothering work.”
— Gloria Furman, author of "Missional Motherhood" and "Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full"
I came across Risen Motherhood a couple months ago ... and it has been such an encouragement to me. God has used this podcast to shift my thinking of motherhood from “just getting through the day,” to “this is eternal work I’m doing.” Seriously, I would recommend this podcast to all mommas out there who need Christ-centered reminders that our work is not in vain, we are impacting our children (even in the small things) for the Kingdom of God!

I love how the podcasts are gospel-centered because it IS easy as a mom to go into a sad, self-condemining sprial when you’re confronted with you weakness and sin. But I also like how it doesn’t leave you feeling complacent or resigned to “this is just how I am” but reminds us that we are redeemed to grow in holiness and, by the Spirit, we can fight sin and grow in the areas where we are struggling.

Risen Motherhood is an answer to prayer. Being a mama can be a lonely road—one where you think you are the only one who has troubles and piles of never-ending laundry. But it isn’t that at all! In motherhood, we meet Christ in the mundane of everyday, and we aren’t meant to live life alone; we are meant to be in community with other believers. Through Risen Motherhood, I have been able to find encouragement to do just that. Emily and Laure are real life mamas who come just as they are. They speak from their heart and their greatest desire is to glorify Jesus above all else! Through their words, wisdom, and guest speakers I have been greatly encouraged and inspired to disciple my children and live for Christ. Doing those never-ending piles of laundry is actually a joy now, because I have Emily and Laure right there on my phone, speaking the life of the gospel into my weary mama heart.

I began listening with a cynical attitude, expecting “fluffy girl talk” with a dusting of Christianese. My cynicism turned to pleasant surprise and delight when I realized this podcast is rooted SOIDLY in scripture. Grateful for these ladies’ transparency and encouragement in all things motherhood.

Emily and Laura do a great job talking about all the different things we as Christian moms go through, but at the same time constantly admonishing listeners to reflect Christ in EVERY aspect of their lives.
