Ep 67 // Hearing God’s Voice for Your Kids Through Intercessory Prayer – Interview with Warrior Mama, Bethany Kimsey

Did you know that YOU are the mightiest intercessor for your children on this earth! If you don’t do it – who else will?

As a mother to 8 children, Bethany Kimsey (aka Warrior Mama )has seen God radically change her messy motherhood from anxious and frantic to peaceful, joyful, and triumphant. She helps weary mothers win the battle against worry and fatigue as they understand their identity in Christ and rest in the hope of the Gospel in community with other moms. 

As a writer, speaker, and encourager of mothers, she wants to see a generation of mothers who can connect their motherhood to the love of Jesus in real and practical ways so that they can be confident.

Quotable Quotes from Bethany:

“In parenting, you’re always playing the long game. We don’t panic in the teensy moves of the day to day. You keep a long term vision. Always speak where you want to go.”

“If your family is chosen for you then they are for your good and for God’s glory. The person who annoys you the most, more than likely will draw you closer to God because it will expose your need for Him!”

“God has already given us a triumphal procession and victory in motherhood. The problem is that we take our eyes off the General (Jesus).”

“The Spirit of God is always precise and restorative. It is never shame inducing.”
