Description

In a culture trying to sell us the lie that we should be anything but “just a mom”, the Joy Filled Podcast exists to come alongside you and help you thrive in this season at home and experience the fullness of joy in the simplicity of homemaking and raising a family. The early years of motherhood are hard, but they’re so so good. I’m determined to give these ‘good old days’ everything I’ve got and I’m bringing you along with me. We’ll host honest conversations on faith, motherhood, homemaking, and everything in between. My prayer is that you leave encouraged in Christ, equipped to carry the weight of motherhood with joy, and reminded of the truth that God has given you everything you need to steward your arrows well. There is so much joy here. Let’s experience it together.

As mothers, it’s so easy to think of ourselves last and to forget all the wonderful things about ourselves that make us who we are. It’s also easy to only see the hard and the faults in ourselves. Which is why, from one mama to another, I want to share 5 things I know to be true about you, regardless of whether or not you believe them. Because the good news about truth is, it doesn’t care how you feel about it.

Feeling Called to Stay Home But Worried About Finances? Here’s TEN Ways For Mamas to Make Money From Home in 2022
21:28

Some of the most frequent conversations and frequently asked prayer requests in my DMs and messages are from mamas who are feeling called to stay home with their kids but are worried about leaving their job and their income on the line, and I get it! I’ve been there too. It’s scary becoming a one income family and it can feel like one giant trust-fall with Jesus. But I believe that being called to your home does not mean you have to forfeit bringing in income for your family. 

 

God created you and I as women with a unique resourcefulness and creativity and if you allow it, stepping into the role of homemaker and mother full time can actually be an amazing opportunity to let those God-given giftings shine. So today is for you - mama who feels the call but is scared to step into the unknown. I want to give you some encouragement and also give you 10 examples of ways to make money right from your home.

The One Thing You Need to Know About Finding Purpose as a Stay at Home Mom
12:01

One of the most common reasons I hear people say why they could never stay home with their kids is “I just feel like I don't have a purpose outside of being a mom anymore” and, “I want to have a purpose outside of motherhood.”

 

I want to debunk that myth and encourage you if you’re feeling this way or you’ve found yourself saying something similar.

 

Today I want to share with you the one thing you need to know about finding purpose as a stay at home mom.

3 simple ways to connect with your kids and invite more joy into your home
11:58

I don’t know about you, but the older my kids get the more I find myself feeling like I hardly even look them in the eyes some days. They are busy toddlers moving from one thing to another at a million miles an hour and I get caught up wrestling babies and chores and to do lists… it’s no wonder I feel like I miss them even when they’re right next to me all day.

 

It’s because we’re lacking true connection.

 

We are coexisting with our kids instead of connecting with them.

 

So on the podcast today I am sharing 3 easy ways to connect and have fun with your kids again and, I promise, they take little to no extra effort on your part! We are all about minimum effort, maximum results around here.

So often, I hear women say these words when talking about postpartum recovery. To some degree, it’s a little impossible to be completely prepared for anything when it comes to having a baby, but I also feel that we do each other a disservice by just not talking about the hard stuff! We are afraid of scaring our sweet pregnant friends or don’t want to be viewed as someone who only dwells on the hard stuff. My friend, you’re in luck, because we’re not afraid to dive into the nitty gritty parts of this thing called motherhood.
