There is a profound difference between feeling as though "you are not enough" and believing that you are underserving.
This week we go toe to toe with our inner critic and discuss ways to find the root cause of our inner critic.
Not Enough = feeling of inadequacy - Questioning if you have what it takes - you ask yourself “What if I’m not good enough?”
Not Worthy Of = feeling of undeserving - Questioning...
1 CHRONICLES 19:13 “Be courageous! Let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. May the LORD’s will be done.”
Where does true courage come from?
God, but do we truly believe it?
Side effects of courage - Trouble & Contagion
Do you prefer trouble with others or trouble with God?
How do you respond to someone else's courage?
DEUTERONOMY 20:8 “Is anyone here afraid or worried? If you are, you may go h...
"but even after all He did, you refuse to trust the Lord your God." Deut. 1:32
In what ways am I not trusting God? What are you tight fisting?
Are you willing to deep deeper?
What is the root of the problem?
Are you willing to stop the spin cycle?
Who or what are you putting your trust in?
Have you ever felt like "quiet quitting" motherhood?
You are not alone!
Join us today, we are sharing five parenting lessons learned in the Afghan Knit of the Month club.
(Can you guess which one of us would have joined this club?!)
Taking a closer look at our own motives and the motives of others while asking ourselves as Paul did, "How will I respond?"
The best ways are 1) with questions and 2) prayer
Philippians 1:15-21 (MSG)
15-17 It’s true that some here preach Christ because with me out of the way, they think they’ll step right into the spotlight. But the others do it with the best heart in the world. One group is motivated by ...

What strategies do you use to resist falling into the trap of following deceptive teachings/the world?
Colossians 2:8-10 (MSG)
8-10 Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They sprea...
Many of us are walking around all prettied up on the inside but a total disaster on the inside.
How do we know if we are truly following God in our lives or just checking off the "Saved Soul" box?
And why does it matter? We can't earn our way into Heaven!
I’ll pour pure water over you and scrub you clean. I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove ...
Are you running away from something or to something?
We all have different coping mechanisms and they often keep us hiding from the HARD stuff.
1 Chronicles 28:9-10
“And you, Solomon my son, get to know well your father’s God; serve him with a whole heart and eager mind, for God examines every heart and sees through every motive. If you seek him, he’ll make sure you find him, but if you abandon him, he’ll leav...
The truth will set you free but first, it might tick you off!
Jesus says to love others as we love ourselves, but we don’t often love ourselves well.
Self-Compassion is NOT self-esteem
Self-Compassion is NOT self-pity
Self-Compassion is NOT self-indulgence
Self-compassion goes a long way if done correctly and without us allowing the world to warp the definition of what it truly means. When we learn to love ourselves as Jesus does we can truly love others the way He has called us to.
The Story of the Two Sons - Matt 21:25-31 - Lip Service
²⁸ “Tell me what you think of this story: A man had two sons. He went up to the first and said, ‘Son, go out for the day and work in the vineyard.’
²⁹ “The son answered, ‘I don’t want to.’ Later on he thought better of it and went.
³⁰ “The father gave the same command to the second son. He answered, ‘Sure, glad to.’ But he never went.
³¹⁻³² “Which of the two sons did what the fath...
We are what we consume!
From the media we watch to the words we play on repeat in our subconscious, everything we consume impacts our lives...for better or worse.
"We are what we consume physically, mentally, and emotionally. To have a healthier life, take responsibility for what you consume. Things will get better if you change just one of the the above three factors, and they will get immensely better if y...
Luke 18:9-13 MSG - He told his next story to some who were complacently pleased with themselves over their moral performance and looked down their noses at the common people: “Two men went up to the Temple to pray, one a Pharisee, the other a tax man. The Pharisee posed and prayed like this: ‘Oh, God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, crooks, adulterers, or, heaven forbid, like this tax man. I fast twice a week a...
Matthew 7:1-5 MSG - “Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults—unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging. It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, ‘Let me wash your face for you,’ when your own face is distorted by contempt? It’s this whole traveling road-show mentali...

Against others & YOURSELF
“When we are silent, we come face to face with our addiction to being in control & always trying to fix things.” Peter Scazzero
