E: 2 Bringing the Hope of the Gospel to the Hearts of Moms

Bringing the Hope of the Gospel to the Hearts of Moms

The challenges of motherhood can be overwhelming. In the midst of potty training, nursing or the many demands of caring for littles, it can be easy to forget that God cares. In this episode, Laura Wifler joins Karen Hodge to introduce us to Risen Motherhood, a resource for moms that offers hope. Its website, podcast, and blog encourage moms to live in light of the resurrection by seeing how the Bible is relevant to our everyday struggles.

Discussion Questions

  • How have you been tempted with a standard of motherhood that seemed unattainable?
  • What does the Gospel have to say about your identity and your purpose as a mother
  • How important is it for you to spend regular time in God’s Word?
  • How have you been encouraged by other mothers who have taken off their masks and shared their struggles authentically?
  • What does Romans 8:1 have to say about how you are doing as a mom?
