I’m happy to be able to share with you a video of a talk I gave in May on Spiritual Mothering & Mentorship. This topic hits right to my heart and walk with Jesus!
I love, LOVE these particular topics. And if I’m privileged to know you in real life, you know I thrive on actually living out these topics. In fact, Spiritual Mothering & Mentorship have transformed my experiences as a friend and mother to my four young children, which ultimately has drawn me very close to the Lord.
During this insightful talk, you’ll learn how to grow in your faith in Christ while mothering, just how beautifully God works in our lives to give us community, find a Spiritual Mother, gather inspiring book resources, and more.
I hope you enjoy the talk!
Hi Maggie! This was wonderful to listen to. Thank you! You touch so many points that have left me with a lot to think about. I have followed your blog since close to the beginning and it has been a blessing to see how God has used motherhood to define your voice and message. I currently have a 5 yo, 2 yo, and 4 month old. Adding a third child to the mix is changing my thoughts on how I mother and go about my everyday life. I want to dig deeper into this calling of motherhood as well as how the Lord is calling me closer to him through it. So thank you for spiritually mothering us through your words!
Hi Ashley! It is so, so good to hear from you. Thank you for your kind words. I would love to hear more on how the Lord is calling you closer to Him. If you have a moment to share, please do! xx
Thanks Maggie! I really connected with the concept that my feelings of anxiety or depression are also linked to loneliness. It was very eye opening to make this connection. And I am also feeling a sense that the Lord is prompting me to step back from things and simply invest in my family. I am really inspired to meet with Jesus right where I am at – as you mentioned. To get my Bible out while I am nursing. To pray over my children more specifically when we pray over a meal or at bedtime. I have also been passionate about mentorship – working with youth ministry many years ago. I love the idea of spiritual mothering and would love to see how that can be a part of my life. I really wanted to take action – so I went ahead and reached out to a woman that I was previously meeting with before my son was born this spring. It is time for me to reconnect with her! And I signed up for MOPS after this long year’s break. I am ready to be back in community – even if it is slightly overwhelming. But I am feeling confident this is where the Lord is calling me to be again. Honestly, this was a huge turning point for me. So thank you for your beautiful words and obedience in following the Lord.
Hi Maggie! Just watched this a second time! Thank you for sharing your wisdom to us mothers in the same season as you are. Prayers for you and your family. :)
Hi Nicole, thank you! And thank you for listening a second time, too :) You’ve come to mind at various times, I’m continuing to pray for you and your family. James 4:8 – amen! xx
Proud of you Queen.
