christian life family pain & suffering parenting women

Kendra Fletcher is a homeschooling mother of eight who had it all together. Everything was dialed in—the right schooling, the right theology, the right church. Then it all fell apart and her family learned that being “right” wasn’t a good substitute for a living relationship with a loving God. Join Kendra on SBE to hear her story and get a sneak peek into her upcoming Key Life/New Growth Press book, ‘Lost and Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace.’

The love parents have for their children can easily turn into pressure to do everything right, to make sure they grow up good and godly (or at the very least get straight As and become captain of the soccer team). What does it look like to parent without the burden of producing “perfect” children? Join Paul Tripp on SBE for help from his new book, ‘Parenting.’ God’s grace to us and through us as parents will set our families free!

Don’t you think adopting frozen embryos should get God’s blessing? Things should go smoothly for someone who decides to offer her family and even her body to save lives, right? That’s not what happened when Tiffany Childs opened her heart and home to “snowflake babies.” Instead her heart was broken, revealing the darkness inside… and God’s unconditional love. Don’t miss this SBE!

Pressure had been building like steam in a tea kettle all morning long. Piles of dishes from the night before, missing shoes, children who won’t get out of bed, who won’t eat breakfast, who don’t answer when I call to them. Steam. Building. And then….Where’s Ezra? I open the back door. A once clean, blonde haired, blue eyed boy standing in the middle of his sandbox covered in mud.

This morning I walked my boys to their first day of school for the 2016/17 school year. I all but skipped the whole way; my step was full of spring, theirs was a bit more shuffled. Yes, I am glad that school is back in session. But before you cast me that oh-great-another-ungrateful-mom-is-happy-that-she’s-rid-of-her-kids side-ways glare or mumble under your breath that I should be more grateful for the miracles and blessings that are my children, let me assure you: I am in fact very grateful for their lives and do see them as the blessings they are, so much so that I’ve set my occupational aspirations to super slo-mo to serve them to the best I can.
