Seasons of Motherhood – MBFLP 262

There are seasons to motherhood

Ecclesiastes says that “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” (Eccl 3:1) Yet young women are being told that they can and should do all things right now. They’re being urged to set their priorities by the culture’s values instead of their own – unless their priority is “Me first!”

In this special presentation to a mothers’ group in Winnsboro, Louisiana, Melanie offers an encouraging perspective on the opportunities and special needs at different stages of our children’s lives, and the critical contribution that a mother can make in each of those times.

Have A Great Mid-life Crisis – MBFLP 194

“Is midlife crisis even a real thing?”

The question arose in a Christian forum recently, and it’s a valid concern. Should we just expect something to go bad when we turn 40, and brace ourselves for a time of existential grief and self-searching? Or is it just a worldly excuse for a spin of self-indulgence once the kids are in high school? We’d say no to both ideas – that there are normal times of transition and reflection in our lives, but they’re times of opportunity and advance. This episode, we’ll talk about how to make the most of your midlife transition without making a fool of yourself!
