Risen Motherhood

A weekly podcast for moms. A space to remember we are not alone in our experiences, be challenged to have joy among the chaos, remember grace covers guilt, and seek the truth of the gospel above all else. This is a podcast for the imperfect mother, still learning, still growing and still fully recognizing she doesn’t have it all together - but comes everyday, to the base of the cross, to seek the one who does.

Our daily schedules are busy, so it’s no wonder we’re surprised when all of a sudden it’s a new season. If we don’t intentionally stop to think about them, they pass us by! In this episode, Emily and Laura share how incorporating gospel reminders into your year can help your family remember God’s sovereignty and story of redemption. It’s not another burden or thing to check off a list, but rather a chance to bring joy into your home as you remember Christ in every season.

Whether you’re the crafty mom who can beautify anything, the mom who is always coming up with fun new adventures, or the mom who feels caught in the doldrums of daily life  God’s word teaches that we’re all creative. We’re all image bearers of the Creator. In this episode, Emily and Laura interview Quina Aragon—a wife, mom, and artist—on creativity and the gospel. As God’s ambassadors, we’re called to cultivate the earth in order to proclaim his name. Whether we make a delicious meal, comb a child’s hair, or help paint watercolor masterpieces, our creativity fills our homes and communities with the knowledge of the glory of God.

Every person bears the image of God, and as believers, we also bear the image of Christ. No matter how we fail—including in creative endeavors—our righteousness before God doesn’t change. We’re secure in God’s love through Christ forever. Let’s consider how this reality frees us to be more creative as we live out the mission to spread God’s authority to all the earth, making known his glory.

  1. God created mankind in his image to serve as ambassadors, acting on his behalf, to fill the earth with the knowledge of his glory. What does it mean for you to be an ambassador of God in this mission? How does your family pursue this mission?

  2. God told Adam and Eve to cultivate the earth for his glory. Jesus taught us to pray for God’s kingdom—which is full of his glory—to come to earth. Jesus gave us the Great Commission to go and make more disciples to fill the earth spreading the news of God’s glory. This mission is throughout scripture! How do creativity and cultivation propel this mission?

  3. We’ll never be perfect ambassadors in this mission, which is why we need Christ. Jesus was the only perfect ambassador, and through his perfect record, we have his righteousness as our own. How does knowing God’s love for us in Christ free us to try new, creative things?

  4. Being creative isn’t confined to a particular artistic style, but rather we see creativity as we take what God has made and cultivate it into something beautiful—from a bouquet of flowers delivered to a friend to an organized filing system implemented for your church. What are some ways you are gifted creatively? How can you use your creativity to serve your family, church, and/or community to spread God’s glory?

  5. Part of motherhood is nurturing our children, including nurturing their creativity. What are some ways your children image God’s creativity? How can you help them use their creativity to serve others? What are some ways your family can serve together?

Whenever we ask the R|M community for questions, they range from lighthearted and practical to thought-provoking and theological, which makes the AUA show something special. In this one-hour episode, Emily and Laura answer listeners’ questions from thoughts about date nights and what kind of cars they drive, to how they encourage their children to pray and  how their families handle Santa. We hope as you listen, you’ll see how the gospel applies to everything and how we have freedom in Christ to serve our families in unique ways.

Questions (Time-Stamped):

[3:37] “What kind of car do you each drive?”

[7:25] “What’s it like living with your parents, Laura? Any tips on clashing with parents?”

[11:40] “Do you guys use essential oils?”

[12:54] “What do you think about forcing your children to hug grandparents/family/strangers?”

[15:19] “What’s your enneagram number?”

[23:54] “How have your husbands been a part of R|M?”

[27:06] “Do you wrestle with the influence you have and how has the Lord guided you in this?”

[33:14] “How do you do date night? How do you strengthen your marriage in the busyness of littles?”

[38:34] “How do you introduce or encourage a toddler to pray?”

[40:41] “How you explain image bearers to young kids?”

[45:50] “I’m using catechisms with my 18-month-old and feeling frustrated. Am I having too high of expectations?”

[48:07] “How do you approach Santa and other non-advent type Christmas traditions? Is this how you handle the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy…”

Discipleship can be an intimidating task, but it isn’t out of reach for the everyday mom. It’s living out the gospel in front of our kids, teaching and inviting them to follow Jesus with us. In this episode, Emily and Laura dive into how we disciple our kids, asking, “What is it? How do we do it? And why does it seem so difficult?” We get to faithfully teach our kids to love God and share their faith by showing them how we do it. We won’t disciple them perfectly, but we can trust the Holy Spirit to equip us for the task and change our children’s hearts.

There’s no formula for raising godly children. Instead, we follow the Christ’s example by offering our kids God’s expectations and grace as we disciple them. In this episode, Emily and Laura interview Elyse Fitzpatrick about faithfulness in the early years of motherhood. Elyse is a wife, mom, and prolific author of many books that apply gospel truths to daily life. While we’re called to faithfully nurture, train, and discipline our children according to God’s word, only Jesus can transform their hearts and teach them to love his design. Let’s give our kids the greatest example of faith by being sinners who run to Jesus with them.
