Ep. 165: Hope for the Mom at the End of her Rope, with Stacey Thacker
Finding the strength and peace we need to parent (and live!) well.
At some point in parenting, I think we all feel weary, worn out, and yes…at the end of our rope! (Some of us have felt that for very long seasons!) Ten years ago Stacey Thacker and Brooke McGlothlin wrote a book to encourage moms who were feeling that way. (It was called, “Hope for the Weary Mom.”) Because of the great response to that book, their publisher asked them to update the book and re-release it under a new name: Unraveled: Hope for the Mom at the End of Her Rope. In today’s interview, Stacey shares some snippets of that story and what God has taught her about pressure and perfectionism, weary seasons, and more.
Stacey’s heart is to share the message that the source of a mom’s hope, in the midst of weariness and overwhelm, is Jesus, and only Jesus. How does this work out practically? That’s what we talk about in this interview! I hope you are encouraged and finish this episode feeling all kinds of HOPE! Find links and more in show notes:
