This year the holidays might look a little different than years’ past. Managing all of the expectations (yours, your family’s, your in-laws…) can be overwhelming as a mom, so today Karen shares her thoughts on making traditions that work for you and your tribe, while letting go of all the things that truly don’t matter.
We are excited to release this much-anticipated conversation about race with friend of BOAW, Alexandra Bates. Last spring, when Alex discovered resources for talking to her daughters about race were lacking, she reached out to Karen and initiated a conversation. Their ensuing relationship has been enlightening for Karen, who wanted to share Alex's point of view and experience with the wider BOAW community. Alex shares her thoughts on racism and how we as moms can teach our children to love those from different races and backgrounds through the behavior we model.
Today’s conversation with author Wendi Nunnery drips with wisdom and grace as she shares her journey with mental health, the church, and motherhood. From growing up in a legalistic church culture to being diagnosed with OCD after becoming a mother, Wendi shares how her brokenness has driven her to Jesus and how she finds rest in His holiness. This is a good one mamas, be sure to share it with a friend who needs to be encouraged today. You can pre-order Wendi’s new book, Good Enough: Letting Go of Perfect for the Sake of Holy over on Amazon or enter our giveaway for a free copy over on Instagram.
