Episode #85 A Heart for Friendship "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." -John 15:13 "You are the first example of friendship to your children." - Sally Clarkson " True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less." C.S. Lewis
You were never meant, or expected, to do life alone. In this episode, Sally and Kristen discuss how to impart a love of community and friendship to our children. They encourage moms to model how to serve in friendship themselves, as the first model their families will see, and explain what it looks like to serve in friendship through trust, loyalty, empathy and encouragement. They share how to become an invitation to others in everyday life, and how to teach your children to be a friend through:
-Trusting the Holy Spirit
-Training them how to share and live generously
-Teaching them HOW to create community
Ultimately, Sally and Kristen encourage and equip moms to cultivate their own hearts for service and love, while becoming a living example of how to put others first.
Then, they are joined by special guest and friend, Elizabeth Foss who shares her own testimony of trusting God even when we feel weary. Reflecting on her cancer journey and the community knit in her own family mothering nine children, Elizabeth reminds us all that there is nothing that we face that Christ has not also endured. She's also sharing about a special new project that we are excited to share with you called Take Up and Read
We pray today will be a gift to your hearts as you listen along with us!
