Summary

In this impromptu podcast, Hillary and Amy wished the Mama Bears a Happy New Year and a challenge: to focus on discipling the home in spiritual faithfulness.

In the past 5 years a focused attack has been waged on societal unity and the sanctity of the home. Secular culture has focused on vilifying the christian faith, tearing apart the home, and evangelizing our children to a secular worldview. While everyone is focusing on the upcoming election, we at Mama Bear encourage our listeners to focus on strengthening the home front. To help you bring p your children to be warriors in the faith, we encourage to you trim away what doesn’t matter eternally. This is perhaps why new years resolutions fail. They focus on adding something to your plate without first taking something away. So mama’s, what’s taking
up your time? Sports? Social media? Letting coco melon babysit your kindergartner? Whatever it is, take that time to refocus on the foundations of the faith.

We here at Mama Bear will help equip you through more podcasts to help you as we journey through 2024. Fair warning, some of them might look different than normal because hillary’s health and newborn naps have little regard for recording schedules. This means that some of these podcasts will look more like conversations with the friend you ran into in the cereal aisle. Fun, biblically rooted, and possibly wear a drool-stained sweatshirt. Cuz mama bear life y’all.

We look forward to this year with you!
