"Have that mentorship or that discipleship. Who is that helped you along in your spiritual journey. I would probably have to say. Jill roads bible teacher here in arizona. Procr- got invited to one of her studies. Twenty eight years ago and we had an immediate connection and she taught me the bible like she showed me how the old testament and new testament come together in how everything in the old testament is a reflection of jesus and what he in him coming to save us and get us back in relationship with the father. So i would have to say she. She has had the biggest impact. And we've partnered in ministry through the years okay back then. I went to her church to hear her study. And then we invited to archerd to teach our women and then when we moved to texas. We brought her into that church to speak to those women for different conferences and things and i led many of her studies at that church by video. Okay her video by her video assistance. And then god called us back to arizona and allowed us to plant a church together. There were just three couples and so she and her husband us and one other couple planted wellspring church in goodyear arizona. Eight years ago. And we've walked together in ministry. We still walk together. In ministry ministering in our women's bible study wednesday night and thursday mornings. Every week. I also speaking of ministry there that i wanted to mention was the lord has led me into a prayer ministry. That is something beyond what i would ever dream. We've had a weekly prayer ministry through the church when during the quarantine went on line on zoom. And then it's a long story but step by step. It was like brennan. Get up and pray. Give me four hours a day at holy week for holy week and then some of those. Some of those women in the prayer group on monday said well. We can join you for an hour every morning. This week will do that so we started meeting every week every morning and then after he was over easter came in then the lord said now. We're gonna go to pentecost sunday. So i was like. Oh forty more days then. We went to monday through friday and we moved to a little bit later. Six fifteen pacific time off so the lord has little by little and then pentecost sunday past. And he's like we're still going so if anybody out there is looking for a group that they want to and i realize if you have small kids probably this well we do have moms kids actually in the group. I don't wanna discount you. Anybody is welcome. And it's just through zoom link okay and if you wanna email me about that we.

"With the impact of what these are going to have on their lives because as we use them and record god's word to us yeah and remember those things then it changes our life and so that's one thing i wanted to mention and i've watched and i mean it's very. I was watching and going. This makes so much sense. How come i didn't think about this. Yeah on my own. And i'm like oh my gosh. This is so helpful the lord just that day he gave me. The idea was like you've worked on getting organized on every other area of your life. What about your spiritual life. Are you organized. Have you put any time into thinking about. And the creator of the universe has just spoken to you. Is it worth writing down. So yeah. that's that's definitely something. I wanted to mention today. Because that's a huge tool and no-guilt no-guilt if you miss a day two weeks months get back at it. You get back at it but use use it. Use it in hand in hand with your bible yeah And you have a website and an email. So do you want to get so coach. Mom tribe dot com is. My website gives a lot information. There is an email contact on there. You can contact me that way or brenna dot stole at gmail.com. I've got some exciting things going on right now. We've got the membership which i give small steps each to the moms and then i meet with them once a month to touch base on those things and they're everything from home organization to parenting to marriage stuff. We have contests we had a this summer. We had an and create challenge for the coach. Mom tribe kids. Oh and they were all competing and these kids got into it and they're they're they got extra points at their moms took pictures and posted what they did so we had moms who posted one hundred twenty one hundred pictures of their kids doing things in the meant to july creative things and they came up with some of the most creative things and ended up with like we had kids with five hundred point. Seven hundred point nine hundred points and then we did a big drawing for these ninja lineup swords with noise and all this style whereas the girl there was a girl when to but a girl but we we do things like that we also have like a house shine challenge where we have this game board and we fill in as we organized different spots in our homes to make fun. Yeah for not only the moms make fun for their family. But i'm trying to make it fun for the moms. So that's coach mom tribe and i opened the membership usually about three times a year. Okay and i'm also about to launch the coach. Mom collective witch. This is a group that you have to qualify for in. It's just seven moms then. I'm going to work with every week. Why in their homes like we're gonna meet by zoom so anyone can do it but we're going to tackle every single week. I'm going to be like holding their hands..

"And she said brenna your. I didn't have the blessing of two siblings. You have an al given this third. When you've already provided these two siblings. He can engage with them. You don't have to do everything exactly and it was just. It was such a revelation for me. And yet i look at it now. I think that's such a small thing but to me at the time. I was carrying a ton of guilt that i had put on myself because i wasn't doing as much for him as i did for the first interesting and i realized the blessing of that and and i think having women in our lives who have a little more perspective it may be they may be two years down further along the line than us or they might be ten years but speaking truth like that. That was life changing for me ned. The time because i flung off the guilt and thank god for the reality. It was like it shook me to the truth of. She's right. yeah what am i thinking. i know. My friends are so critical to me spending that time i. It's really hard to find time in my schedule. Sometimes because i let everything else kind of go over that but to me and it's not every day it's not even every week you know my close friends. We may be each other once every couple of months but we do a phone call conversations between them but my husband says i need you to go. Hang out with your girlfriends. Same thing that you said about jill briscoe. You know like what kid said to her. You are a better wife in a better mom when you've gone out of the house and had time with your friends and then you come back and you can love even better because you're not so stressed out that's right one of the things that i totally agree and i tell my husband when i like. Go hunt go. Yeah go play golf. He says the same. I say the same thing to him but yeah but it is so important that we have those times. And it's just rejuvenating yup absolutely now. You have your book. I mean you've given us lots of tips and hopefully whoever's been listening the ladies that are listening are have had a pen and a paper. Maybe i need to warn them of that. And then intro. Because you've given us so many good tips and you've got more in your book so tell us. How can we find your book and well right now. It's on amazon. Okay so you can go there to get it but also something else. I thought about that. I didn't mention was when it comes to spiritual growth one of the main tools that the lord has used in. My life is my prayer journal and i have on my youtube. There's coach mom tribe is my youtube. Okay i know and you can go under the spiritual growth playlist and it. I talk about how to make a prayer journal. Wow and it is. It's a very practical thing. It may not be as pretty as some but it is one that you will use. And i've made this for dozens of like a high school graduate sending them off. Oh and the lord has really overwhelmed me. I pray over them as i send them out and he has. He's let me in on a little secret at times almost every time before i shipped them off..

"Are full. But i'm gently leading you. Because i'm just thinking what happened. Do i even know god anymore. Like you know he's like i'm right here. I'm moving more to your pace. And i just wanna say whatever season you're in if you're in one of those overwhelming seasons especially if you're a single mom god's grace be on you in the lord knows how hard it is and he will honor your prayers in the short time that you have and just take the pressure off for yourself and realize you don't have to do it. Perfect ask for his wisdom in how to do things and and applying some of the things like the things that i teach that. Really make life more doable. So that you can have more time. And i will say if can only get one thing in one thing i've learned is family dinner. We all need to eat every day. Katherine snow of professor of education at harvard. University didn't eight year. Study on sixty five families. This was not even a faith-based study but she just studied child's development development what impacts the most is it education story time playtime or family. Dinner family. Dinner was way way way way higher than any other any other factor in just plain old child development. But when you consider faith in passing on your faith. How much more as christians does that mean to what we can pass on children's so even if the only thing that you can do is sit and eat with your kids. That's a huge thing that you're doing and it shown to raise confidence in children. It's shown to do so many things it's shown when they're in their teenage years. Yeah like seventy five percent less likely to experiment with drugs and sat that and things like that just that alone and i know when we adopted i was so overwhelmed at the beginning and i felt like that was the only thing i could do. I could hardly even help them with their homework. And i'm trying to help teach them english their help them get better at their english and things But i just said thank you. Lord that i have family dinner. 'cause i know that's one thing that i am doing. I'm putting food on the table. Hopefully it's healthy even if it's not the best in health at least we're meeting and we're gathering over food asking god bless it and bless our time so that one thing alone is actually much more than most moms. Most families are doing for their kids. But just if you can do that one thing even if that's eating out if you have to eat out almost every meal you're gathering around a table you're asking each other. How's your day. What what was the highlight. What was a low things like that such a good answer. Such a good answer. I i wonder you know here..

"Yeah. They all fit. If you put the big ones in i in the big ones is my relationship with god is growing my relationship with my husband and my family putting those i especially. We were talking about for people in ministry a lot of times. It's easier it's more exciting to go out it's more we get more thankfulness and more gratitude. When we minister out towards others easier to pray for others needs. Are we praying that much for our own husbands for our own children. you know. That's the question that we have to ask ourselves especially when we're in fulltime minutes or when we're in ministry of any sort is are we getting first things first. Yeah can you talk specifically to those moms that are working moms and feel a strain about the fact that that maybe they you know they drop their kids off early Their kids go to school. They go to after care they pick them up and then they c- they arrive home and they have this push and pull of desperately wanting to spend time with their kids but dinner has to be done and You know maybe the house you know needs to be cleaned or laundry needs to eat the whole those things and yet they still have to get up and go to work in the morning. Can you talk specifically to them. And how how you might encourage them to be intentional about those big rocks being were they need to be and not allowing guilt. Exactly first of all. I just wanna say i feel for you and i feel god's heart for you and i want you to take the pressure off. Take the pressure off in one. One verse that. God gave me with each of when i had a newborn and i was overwhelmed with each of my newport's so five times i it seems like i would be literally praying for cities states nations all this powerful in my relationship with the lord up until like i had baby and then i would realize weeks into this. The only thing i've prayed is god. Help the baby sleep. Lord help me. That was wet. And i think is this what my prayer life has come to what happened. And the verse. Isaiah forty eleven that talks about the father gentle shepherd in how he gently leads. Those who have young. Yeah he brought that up to me all five kids all five kids. He he highlighted. That person said now i am still leading you. It's slower..

"Cannot do this in our own strength. it's too hard. I remember chris coming home from work. When i had three preschoolers that still i. I really didn't feel until the oldest was h six. That i had anyone could understand what i was going through her. How hard situations could be like toddlers throwing it tantrum. I actually remember the first day that my oldest son's is locked with mine. And i thought he understands how hard this is And that was revolutionary. Have one person who understands how hard this is right now. But it's so hard in where it was. I going with that i told christie. He walked in and said this isn't fair. I said no. You don't understand you're working with people that reason these people. I work with have no reasoning reason. There is no reasoning here but it takes the grace of god. We're doing one of the most important jobs. And i feel like the enemy knows the this drink of the kingdom of god is in the family if he can break down the moms. Have them feel defeated and overwhelmed. Then he's one. He's one because we're not training up the next generation. We have the most important job. And we have to be spiritually equipped. And whatever it takes if it takes putting on blinders and the laundry sitting over there. The first things have to come first and that's one of them is however we can get into the word of god even if we've got a newborn where completely overwhelmed. We've got toddlers things like that. Having the praise music playing having just one verse that you cling to that. It's written on a chalkboard that you say over and over and over in a day we have to have it in jill briscoe. Todd love our climbing into her childrens play. Pin minutes day she would sit. She said my the children's playpen sat in the middle of the muddle and for fifteen minutes a day. I would take my cup of tea. And my bible. And i would sit in. Take the kids out and put myself in and read my bible and pray And she said later. She asked her kids like. I was amazed now that i look back. I'm amazed that you left me alone. You let me do that like yeah. We're running amok. But really. I had that time in in her son said mom. We realized you were a whole lot nicer when you got out then when you went in. Wow so that says a lot about us taking the time realizing this is most important that i love the the the picture the jar and then that putting the mo the biggest rocks in first and then how all the little pebbles.

"The journey of reap listener go sign up today. And don't miss another edition of the inside. Look you've talked a little bit about how you wish. Sometimes that you spent that time in prayer and that preparing yourself for what was to come might have helped to bring some of that piece. Yes and then you've you've quoted some scripture and i think that sometimes especially as moms we can feel like i am so busy i don't have time for my faith which is why maybe you know. We go to wednesday night. Bible study or we go to sunday morning because we feel like at least. That's on the schedule. And i can drop my kids off at childcare and now i don't have anything to think about but god but then that means that we're really only engaging with him and his word once maybe twice a week and that's it and if we think of god's word as food that's not enough and we're if we're to think about god being like a friend that's not enough you know if you need to foster that relationship so how is it that we can keep a fun household still. Get everything done that. We need to but still find time for that. That faith peace and while you're saying get everything done that we need to also just want to say. We have to pray that our expectations to all right and the seasons that we're living in and as we involve our kids in the teamwork we a lot of times. I do find that moms. I personally don't have a problem. Not a perfectionist. Thank thank fully okay with this. If other people will do the jobs. I'm generally okay with. However it's done i try to teach them how to i'm. I'm okay. I know a lot of moms i work with are so they want it done this this this yeah well. I went to ask at the expense of what like what this is a season. So lowering those expectations letting other people help in then so getting everything. Done that address that but as far as spending time. It's absolutely vitally important that we have the holy spirit failing us each day empowering us being a mom is one of the hardest most thankless jobs. Especially when they're little. I know some people love that phase. I didn't ever. I always enjoyed them. The older they get the more. I enjoy them. Okay the the little when. They're toddlers and their undoing everything that you've just done. Yes what's that phrase. Phyllis diller said like cleaning house when your children are young is like shoveling snow in a blizzard. Oh totally related with that and so realizing lowering our expectations and then realizing that we have to have god's grace on us we have to..

"I'm sorry this is your limit in and then if they complain this is probably something we need to implement right now to think of it because a lot of times in our home if you complain about something then you you're either volunteering for more of that thing like if you complain about your daily job if the bad then you've just volunteered for another one that day and so it really cuts all the complaints. Like almost to nothing. All you have to say is was that a complaint. No carrying out the trash i. It's it's that kind of thing. So even complaining about that boundary. Was that a complaint. Do we need to take two more minutes off that you know or whatever so interesting do you find it. I think sometimes. I find it almost hard to think of like discipline like how to discipline kids. I feel like it's the same thing over and over again and then the discipline loses its effect. Do you find it hard or have you found a way to when they do break those boundaries. Less come up with something. Okay so one thing. I learned by the second or third child. I started figuring out. I didn't want to be That kind of mom. Yeah and i thought with my. I i have to get my point across. I have to look mean after you know with this toddler shown. That's not okay. You know what. I found fun ways to to say. Here's the boundary. It's your choice. The ball's in your court. I know you can do a great job if you don't. I'll bummer. You've chosen this. I believe though that you can make a so. It keeps it on the positive. Okay i believe you can do this. So one of the biggest things i hear from the moms and i know from our own home is siblings arguing to go so one of the things that i that it demonstrates to do it in a fun way. I always like to just when they start arguing. Just be go set the timer. Everything goes back to the timer. Set the timer for a minute and say you've got one minute to work this otherwise you're going to do this in a lot of with my boys. I just came up with the. You're gonna hold hands in go in the front yard. Hold hands and skip back and forth across the line and seeing. Skip to loo my darling. If they didn't figure it out you can't figure it out in one minute. So it's just weird crazy stuff that they don't wanna do no or like you're literally gonna hug your brother in a full embrace and kiss him on the lips because i realize you need more love for each other obviously not finding enough love. Your only planning strike did that. Then result o- giggles if they actually like a always worked it out i always about. Sometimes they'd be watching the timer and they're fighting up till the last ten seconds and then what we're good we're good and even now my two teenagers that i've got it home. They were arguing the other day and i literally just what. I didn't say anything. Just walked over to the timer on evan and tried to slyly depressive. For one minute and they heard they they they were full on yelling at each other and they heard the little don't and they were like mom. You set the timer figure it out so you know there's just so many things we can still be fun moms yet we've set boundaries and said this is not acceptable. This is a piece stone in our house. You know and we don't allow that. We don't tolerate it And in the end they appreciate it because people want to live in a peaceful home. Yeah hey guys. I want to take a minute to tell you about.

"So i'm not gonna tell me can't play it but we have very specific time boundaries boundaries. On that i've seen you write about the importance of boundaries with screen time Can you talk about why that's important. And how that can help us once again go from frazzled fund Well it's so easy we we all know as moms. It's easy to get overwhelmed. And we just want our kids to sit still and be quiet. Yeah so put us put him on a screen that works you know but what they're finding in all. The studies now are showing that more screen time leads to more mental health issues. More depression in children They are really. The confidence levels are low the way they're able to interact socially but the biggest thing is just depression and that it's just really hard thing so really keeping an a handle on it and it's hard i'm not gonna lie. It's hard especially when your kids get old enough to have bones and things like that but having specific times when they're allowed to be on them definitely we don't have phones or ipads or anything dinner. We don't have them plugged in at the room. They're supposed to turn them in an hour before bedtime. Oh okay that doesn't always happen but we try to get close and if they need to come back and check like if a friend is picking them up for school or something they need to check. They can check but then they need to go. Do you have a place where they live not in their bedrooms at night. Yeah it's pretty much in our bathroom. Bagger okay bathroom. Sometimes it's been in the kitchen. It depends on how trustworthy the children have been. Okay as they're going up in what's going on but i'm some of them have been able to just keep it in the kitchen. Plug it in night and go it. Just it always depends on the child and their their track records so okay but definitely that is such an important thing and i know. Our kids have seen the benefits. There have been times where they've lost privileges. There was one time when one of our sons. We said literally. You can have ten minutes three times a day to check your phone to be on your phone that's it. You've lost the rest your privileges and he realized it was actually pretty good to not even have that. What we do is parents when we set boundaries is we take the pressure off of our kids from that angst of gotta check it got to check in it is addictive the all the programs video games the apps they make them they design them to be addictive absolutely and so. It's no wonder that we can't pull ourselves off of our phones. It's hard enough for us as adults but for our children giving that boundary of like..

"I'm the one that learned the lesson my mom but man i was going to teach my momma lesson. Yeah what i've been known to dump dump stuff definitely go. Okay cleanup it. Yeah but the other thing. I love to use timers with that. On things slogans make every minute count and my lifers psalm. Ninety twelve number our days right lord that we might gain a heart of with wisdom And i love to not not in a frantic frenzy kind of way. Make every minute count but really be intentional. Yeah and and do it do it right whether i'm playing with my family or working. Yeah and setting a timer. It's amazing how there are so many things that take that long that we really get. We really get upset about. And that's what. I try to help my kids do an in when they're young. Yes when they're preschoolers setting a timer. And say i will help you i will. I never say come help. Mommy clean your room. No i will help you clean your room if i see you working hard and let's see what we can get done in three minutes. Okay like this is so fun and easy and put the music on or things like that. And even i do. I play games with myself like that. Set the timer to empty the dishwasher. Really it's about a three to four minute job in. So when i feel like i you know and i think really can. I give three minutes to this and it'll be over. Yes yeah absolutely. I do anything for three minutes. So it stuff like that and really speaking of house cleaning like i have a strategy for having totally all at once. Clean house All at once and it's a great strategy and if people have kids that are able to help in involves them pitching in involves loading down the stroller with every single thing that you need and going through the house like with a maid cart going through. I've heard that before and so that that is a great win..

"And then you get to church and you're like okay now be happy and let's price jesus and you're like i can't even think about that right now. What started that message for you. I got the mess. I got that. Wording from the moms that i worked with. Actually i'd never really thought about it. Okay but they were like you've taught us how to have fun you've moved us from frazzled to fun and they're like now i can parent now. I'm i'm a fun mom. Because i used to just be overwhelmed in frazzled. And i think you know most moms fit into one of two categories either the category that you talked about like they're so consumed with their homes in their neglecting their spiritual life or actually there are quite a few christian. Moms who are very deep connected spiritually and all this but then their homes are just so neglected and they feel so guilty and overwhelmed because of the mess and the chaos and one thing Early on that. God showed me. I had been speaking on things that i thought were really important like. They are important but spiritual spiritual growth prayer scripture memory. Things like that. I would lead retreats and things in the lured then when i was in my own crisis where i needed help like i said cried out. The lord gave me some strategies practical things and he said. Start speaking in these things and it was like. I thought these aren't as important as the big things like prayer spiritual growth scripture memory and he said no. These are important. Because i want you to live a life of love and you can't live a life of love focused on others until you feel you've got things under control in your own so like if my house is so crazy i don't really feel like i can invite people over to my home or if i'm running late again or whatever. I'm not there early to greet someone who's coming into church for the first time or does different things like that or i'm not organized enough to be able to pull off taking a meal to someone so he was like no practical. Things actually do matter. So that's where i really. I really help moms with very practical. Although i definitely have a passion for the things like the spiritual things in that is such an important component that i i really do see that. So many moms are missing the part of. How do i even get a handle on my home. How do i get a handle on my family schedule. What do i do here. So that's what.

"To hear about their lives more deeply and actually when we weren't on church staff because there was a time when my husband he was the state director for fellowship of christian athletes. Au pair church. Ministry actually almost felt a little left out because i was used to helping lead. Yeah and so. I don't know i enjoy it. Yeah and i am sure that even as you have developed this ministry to moms. I'm sure there are many moms. Whose wife's are i'm sorry. Our industry and i'm sure you have a very special perspective to be able to encourage them with these things that you were encouraged with when you were young and i think that's amazing that that god gave you that beautiful perspective as pastors. I know sometimes. That's not what happens for pastors kids. That they they come out of a a ministry place and in a in a good place to go and encourage others. I happen to be in that place. Where i i'm very blessed to have had parents. That did the same thing. you know. Very much protected us as kids. If there was anybody else's opinion on what we should be doing you know. But then also you know ministries is a is a hard thing you know. There's you're working through your own stuff. Yeah and then you're helping others work through. There's there's decisions to be made. Their spiritual warfare is frontline. Yeah that's what. I was gonna say the frontlines. Yeah on the frontlines of battle And so because of that. I know there are many discussions that my parents had to have hard decisions that needed to be made and they chose to go into the room and close the door and have those conversations and i think because of that. It's not that they lied to us about the difficulty of ministry but because of that it didn't scare me away from being a ministry myself right. They they allow us to see what we needed to see at that age..

And i sat down after that day and wrote out a plan and i felt like the lord said have it done by the way why and i was beginning of the year and that was four months and i wrote down my i thought that means. I've gotta write a chapter every two weeks to finish this rough draft and in spite of three out of state trips are remodel in our home. My gosh the five kids under nine and under and three weeks of spring break company. That people that love to come to phoenix drinking phoenix. And all of that the lord. It was just god. It was literally guide. And i saw that. There was one window of time in my day each day. That only one person needed me. That was my prime time because my husband was at work my oldest two were at school. My kindergartner was in kindergarten. Until ten o'clock is that not a crime like two hours at crime. It was three hours. Why even go. But he was in school and then the baby was taking morning. Nap in just left my three-year-old mica and he was my calmest boy. I know the god made in that way for such a time as that and he would sit on my lap and like put his head down on my chest. And i would just feel so much. I'd be sitting there and was like if this ever gets published. It is 'cause i didn't have a promise of publishing. I just knew. God said. Write it. And i thought this is all stuff i need so i didn't know if it was just for me. Yeah but then. The more time i put into it. I was like lord. Please could this be for someone else to because this is so much work. Yeah but anyway. That was how it all happened. And i'm just so grateful. And what i didn't realize i thought it was the deadline because the kids were going to be out of school but actually the lord moved us out of state to texas. How two weeks later and so it was like. Oh my yes. I was so glad i had that done. Yeah wow because it might have. Who knows how long it might have just sat if it was. Oh yeah yeah. That's amazing now. You are pastor's wife as well. I have to eat well. I know that brings some some individual very special challenges being a pastor's kid myself and speaking with my mom about some of the challenges that come from being a pastor's wife and raising pastors kits. Can you speak to some of that that that the individual challenges that came with that i was raised in a minister's family in my my parents had such a balanced approach. And i think that's what's been my peace through it. All i really actually. It's been a joyful journey for me. But i know it's really hard for a lotta people but i feel like my parents foundation. If there was any talk of we should do this or that. When we were going up they would be like. Your job is to please god and only god. Your job is not to please people we please. God not man and so with that perspective it really has gave me a great foundation of concentrating on the lord and then when people have issues with whatever which thankfully there haven't been a ton..

My sister always loved to be around little kids. I was always the one who gravitated to the adult table. And then when i got married thought okay i think i mean i guess i'll have kids that kind of thing but i thought maybe two or three and i really wasn't sure about what kind of a mom would be and then and other people were either and And then my own father in law. Like and i was insecure enough but i was like a day or two before delivery and he was they were in town for the birth and he was chuckling. I was like what are you laughing at path was happening. Because i just can't imagine you as a mom and so okay. That's where we're coming from and then my husband had one sister so he thought we might have to. The triplet thing was great. I i was hoping for three at the same time. But i thought maybe three and then as the lord would have it. We had five long story but four boys and a girl and then we thought we are totally maxed out at this point which we'd already felt that before and then he called us to adopt two more so we now have sevens having yes..
