The Busy Mom's Guide™ to Daylight: How to Fit Your Size 16 Day Into a Size 10

(Homeschool How-To’s)

Have you ever experienced a series of days, weeks, or even months when you felt like you just could NOT get on top of all that you had to do? Have you just decided that it’s either school or dinner? Or maybe you just gave up making dinner and now everyone has matching socks again! Most moms struggle with finding a balance when it comes to staying on top of all we need to get done. Have you ever read 2 Corinthians 12:9? My strength is made perfect in weakness. Mothering reveals weakness… It’s true! And that’s a good thing, because it means you get to give even more glory to the Lord when you graduate your kids and see that they are walking with the Lord. If you’re struggling with trying to do it all, you will enjoy hearing some of Heidi’s favorite tips for managing all that pulls us…and still finding time to fit in “other things” (like alone time with your husband!).

Mom's Night Out — Becoming MomStrong

(Mom’s Night Out)

Today’s mothers are living in challenging times. We’re facing things that our mothers could never have imagined. Many moms are struggling with fear of the future and worry about raising children in today’s culture — but God says, “Do not be afraid! Be strong and courageous!” Mom, you have a mission (should you choose to accept it) to raise the next generation of teachers, doctors, judges, police officers, grocery store clerks, attorneys, nurses — and parents. Yes! As mothers, we’ve got to be ready to prepare our children for whatever they may face as followers of Jesus Christ. Heidi will challenge as she talks about what it will take to “Become MomStrong” — drawing on truths from God’s Word to answer the tough questions this generation of kids is asking and prepare moms to meet the challenges head-on.

Sex, Lies, and Childhood: How You Can Identify and Inoculate Your Kids (and Yourself!) Against the Biggest Lies of Woke Culture

(Biblical Worldview)

God’s Word teaches us that the primary job of parents is to raise children who are equipped, both spiritually and mentally for the “real world.” Our assignment? To prepare our kids to stand against “the schemes of the devil.” Trouble is — the language of woke culture often gets right by busy parents. Who has time to learn all the new words and phrases that seem to be created every other week? If you’re struggling to keep up, join Heidi St. John as she equips you to easily identify the language of the left and teach your own children to do the same.
