Centering Truth :: Lisa Bevere [Ep 204]

April 30, 2018 | God Centered Mom Podcast, mentorship, mothering, relationship with God, wisdom | 2 comments

In her new book, New York Times bestselling author Lisa Bevere tackles the question, “What is truth?”. It is a defining question in our current age which is ruled by a shifting sea of opinions and a constantly changing culture. But, truth is person, Jesus. And, he is a Rock for his people.

When I began to look at this, I thought, 'Oh my gosh, they were looking for Christ'. The magnet that would draw, but not be drawn, the one who is light, this whole dynamic of being invincible, that’s what adamant means… invincible… it’s also immovable, constant, that rock who follows us in the wilderness… That word in Hebrew means, 'an unassailable refuge'. That made me realize that Christ is our unassailable refuge.

Listen as Lisa shares wisdom and encouragement for moms, daughters and followers of Christ everywhere.

What we chat about:

  • Lisa’s background and testimony of meeting Jesus and her husband
  • Parenting, discipline and setting your children up to win
  • The power of positive affirmation in strong-willed children
  • Explaining the why behind the rules and connecting it to God’s word
  • Having grace for the season you are in as a mom
  • Prayers for your kids to go beyond where you are in your walk with Christ
  • Doing motherhood well is not the same as doing it perfectly
  • The meaning of adamant and the background on Lisa’s new book
  • Christ is our unassailable refuge, our rock, our adamant
  • We can’t love what God loves if we don’t hate what God hates
  • The danger of pride and how it separates us from God’s grace
  • Jesus is our pattern for how to love
  • You will never regret kindness and loving words
  • Bring in the word of God when you have disagreements

    I’m in the process of listening to this a 2nd time and have passed this on to a few friends. Really loved this session! I would list the parts I loved but they’re basically what you listed in the “what we chat about” section.

    Do you happen to have a transcript of the podcast?
