Nearly every mother experiences fear throughout her parenting journey.  As Jennifer and I discuss in this episode, there are often new fears that emerge at every stage of parenthood.  We may fear failing our kids or fear for their safety, but the reality is that fear creates a suffocating environment in our homes.  As a long-time homeschooling mother of seven, Jennifer shares her journey of recognizing the impact of fear on her family and how she used the power of story to overcome it.  This is such a rich, grace-filled conversation meant to encourage you as you fight fear and embrace joy in your mothering.

In this episode, we cover:

  • How fears in motherhood change from season to season
  • The most common sources of our fears as mothers
  • Transforming our families by exchanging the power of fear for the power of joy
  • Using the power of story of overcome fears
  • The gifts we give our children by prioritizing reading aloud as a family
  • Creating an environment in which our kids can pursue their unique interests
  • Reconnecting to our own passions and interests in the midst of mothering
  • How mothers can model a life of joy in our homes
  • What to read and how to create time for reading aloud
