Episode #031 with Rachel Swanson
Faith Over Fear: Overcoming Anxiety
Today on the podcast, I am so excited to have my friend, Rachel Swanson, with me. We're chatting about overcoming anxiety and how understanding God's character can help you to overcome it. As moms I know that it's very common to struggle with fear. With all the bad things going on in the world, it’s too easy to let that fear creep in—I know it is for me. With shootings, hurricanes, and natural disasters going on, my first response after getting the tragic news is to put myself in their shoes and wonder what I would do to protect my kids in those situations. Then I worry and worry! Sometimes there is no good answer, but that's usually when the fear kicks in. The reality is that I know I have to trust God and really put my trust in Him. So, that’s what the heart of our talk about is today — you're going to love it!
Rachel’s new book is unique. It is a devotional coloring book called Big and Little Coloring Devotional. It’s really cool. My girls and I have really been enjoying it. Each page has a little devotional — one for mom (or dad) and one for your child. My only dilemma is that I’m trying to color with BOTH my girls.
I cannot wait for you to hear this episode!
