Ask almost anyone how they’re doing, and there’s a good chance the response you’ll get is: “busy.” As moms, how can we wisely evaluate each opportunity to ensure we’re being led by the Spirit of God in our family commitments?
Listen as Jess talks with Shelley Miller about:
- Evaluating your family’s commitments, beforehand & afterward
- Integrating spiritually fruitful activities for mom & kids
- How to tell if you’re walking in the Spirit
This episode’s Quick Mom Verse:
“They said to the woman, ‘It is no longer because of what you said that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.’ ” ~John 4:42
