The Warrior Mama Podcast

Sep 8, 2021

Welcome back to the kitchen table. This week, Bethany addresses the question, how can I be intentional with my kids when I feel burnt out? Many moms probably feel this way, and you want to teach, have meaningful conversations, and plan fun activities. But, by the end of the day, you feel defeated, burnt out, and you don’t have the energy. Bethany is walking in the same shoes, but she gives guidance, encouragement, and scripture to help you find a middle ground. 


When we let the Holy Spirit tend to us, it begins to reframe our minds to be set on the gospel. God is the only one who can fill us when we feel defeated and overwhelmed in motherhood. 


Bethany shares how she must see, hear, and constantly be reminded of the truth that Jesus says. She engages with the five truths when she reaches feelings of overwhelm, anger, or resentment. 



The Five Truths When Life Feels Crazy

  • God Chose You- Matthew 11:28-29
  • God Engages and Listens- Psalm 116: 1-2 & Psalm 66:19
  • God Leads and Equips You- Isaiah 42:16 & Isaiah 40:11
  • God Has Compassion on You- Psalm 103: 13-14
  • God Brings Peace- Psalm 62: 1-2 & 1 Peter 1:2 

In moments of mess, God has compassion for you. He longs to help you and will be your peace.
