Episode 77 - God-Confident Kids with Cyndie de Neve

“You were created on purpose for a good purpose.”  Today’s guest, author, and Moms in Prayer mom, Cyndie Claypool de Neve and Lee sat down to talk about teaching our kids how to find God-confidence. Our children have the opportunity to draw strength from the bedrock truth of who God is rather than chasing self-confidence, which will fail them in the end.  Listen in as we discuss embracing the unique bent God has given each child.

Episode 76 - Take a God Dare with Kate Battistelli

Episode 76 - Take a God Dare with Kate Battistelli

November 11, 2019

God offers us opportunities throughout our life and motherhood to step out in faith with Him.  Today Lee is joined by author, speaker, and mother, Kate Battistelli to discuss the power of our brave yeses when we are invited by God to do something we’ve never done before.  For Kate this has meant leaving Broadway, parenting an exceptionally gifted musician, writing books, and even revealing a brokenness that 1/3 women walk through. 

About our Guests:

Kate Battistelli, happily married to her best friend for 36 years, is mom to GRAMMY award-winning recording artist Francesca Battistelli and Mimi to Francesca’s 4 children. She’s a former Broadway actress and the author of The God Dare and Growing Great Kids. She represents one-third of the Mom to Mom podcast trio, whose goal is to equip every generation of moms with grace, encouragement, and honesty. Because of her heart for the broken and bruised, you can find her mentoring and encouraging women of all ages, either on her front porch, in her small group, or on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook.

Kate is convinced God has a wild, preposterous, secret, scary, or impossible dream just for you. It’s what she calls a God Dare, because she knows beyond the shadow of a doubt, with God absolutely anything is possible.

Kate’s goal is to see you become all God has created you to be, and she truly believes you are here to change the world. She loves to speak about The God Dare in workshops, churches and conference settings, inspiring you to let Jesus pick your future. She is a natural encourager and believes you aren’t here by accident but you’re here to change the world! She recently moved to Franklin, TN to be near Francesca’s growing family.
