First of all, we want to say, "THANK YOU!"
We want to take a moment to thank all of you for your support over the past year and a half. We continue to be amazed by the ways God is using the podcast and the Risen Motherhood community. We frequently find ourselves talking about the unbelievable listeners we have, and all the support and encouragement you've show us. Truly, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. To those of you who have been faithful listeners from the beginning, and those of you who have only just recently found us, we are so grateful to have found a space where so many mothers want to grow in intentional, gospel-centered motherhood.
You all have been so kind and gracious with us as we have grown in not only the technical aspects of running a podcast, but also in navigating and running such a fast-growing community, expanding the site to include RM|EQUIPPING (among many other things!). We know know we haven't done it perfectly, and we'll always be the first to admit that we have more to learn in our own motherhood, but we're grateful to have each of you locking arms with us to support us as we learn, change, and grow.
Um...Did You Know We Are Both Having Babies This Summer?!
Throughout the past few shows, you've probably heard us talking about taking a brief "maternity leave" from the show, as we're both adding new babies to our families this summer! In case you missed it, Laura had her baby, Eden Lynn, three weeks early on June 8, and Emily is due with her little girl in early August. As we both adjust to our growing families, we'll be taking the months of July and August off from releasing new podcast episodes and will return with new shows on Wednesday, September 6, 2017. We're already planning with special interview guests and frequently-requested show topics!
But We're Not Totally Off The Grid...
We hope you'll stick with us over the next couple months as we'll still be active on social media ( Facebook || Instagram || Twitter ) and releasing new content on this blog, all to encourage you in gospel-centered motherhood. Plus, we have an archive of 70 episodes that you can listen to while we're on break. If you're looking for a specific topic, we encourage you to search our archive.
In addition, we hope you'll use your summer to dig into some new books and resources. If you haven't checked them out yet, we've pulled together all our favorite resources for Biblical motherhood on the Resources page - you'll find our favorite books for spiritual growth, the best children's Bibles, our top picks for journals for quiet times and prayer, and even find tips on our favorite highlighters that don't bleed through thin Bible pages, or music for kids that won't hurt your ears. Be sure to check out all our Recommended Resources here.
And of course, we always want to encourage you to prioritize spending time in God's word above anything else. Visit RM|EQUIPPING for all our resources for studying scripture, as well as to find our tutorial for understanding and growing in the Inductive Bible Study Method. We hope this summer you'll be able to find time to soak in God's word and grow in your love and understanding of him - which will in turn grow you in your role as a mother.
