We Are Disciplemaker Moms: Choosing Confidence Over Doubt

When I first caught a vision for joining The Navigators, I was full of enthusiasm. My husband and I had been praying about what full time ministry to join, and it wasn’t too long before we realized that The Navigators would be a great fit. We deeply resonated with the concept of life-on-life discipleship, and we eagerly started the application process. God closed some doors … Continue reading We Are Disciplemaker Moms: Choosing Confidence Over Doubt

We are Disciplemaker Moms: A Reminder of the Vision

I woke up each morning feeling more tired than when I had gone to bed the night before. Life seemed overwhelming as we ministered on campus. Not only were the boys little, but also I was living with severe chronic pain. Due to these factors, we had to adjust my involvement on campus. How was this going to affect my desire to make disciples? Would … Continue reading We are Disciplemaker Moms: A Reminder of the Vision

Here’s the link to an article he wrote on the topic back in 1986! The idea resonated with me early on because I didn’t come to campus feeling important at all. I came … Continue reading We are Disciplemaker Moms: The Importance of the Individual

We are Disciplemaker Moms: Remembering Why

I’ll be honest, some mornings I wonder if all our efforts in ministry are even worth it. I can easily get distracted with selfish thoughts – Bedtime routines are so hard alone, why is John gone so many evenings a week? I poured my heart and soul into crafting a quality retreat to build up and bless the women at our campus, why did so … Continue reading We are Disciplemaker Moms: Remembering Why

We Are Disciplemaker Moms: An Introduction

*Beep*Beep*Beep* My husband’s 6:30 am alarm goes off, and he rolls out of bed to start the coffee pot. Monday mornings are rough. I’m already nursing the newborn – almost nodding off in the rocker – and almost like clockwork the toddler starts crying to be let out of his room (nearly an hour before he is “supposed” to come out – thanks “OK to … Continue reading We Are Disciplemaker Moms: An Introduction
