Its’ so true! If we would just listen to our mamas the FIRST time, our lives would be so much easier. I don’t know how many times my mama could have easily said, “I told you so.” But she didn’t. She let me listen and learn. Although, looking back, I’m so grateful for all those times I actually did listen. Because those were the times I actually did learn!
I can hear my mama now,
“Hannah, you shouldn’t eat so fast. It will give you indigestion.”
“Hannah, if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything.”
“Hannah, you probably shouldn’t dance like that. It’s not flattering.”
“Hannah, those shoes aren’t sensible. You’ll trip and fall.”
I’ve tried to listen to my mama through the years because it’s always nice to have someone who’s been there and done that and will help you along the way. Plus, my mama’s pretty awesome. And, Mama, if you’re reading this, I still don’t take your advice on the shoes. Sorry ’bout that.
April Osteen Simons knows a thing or two about taking her mama’s good advice. She’s one of the rare people who actually does and tells about the incredible results it has achieved in her own life.
In this real and raw podcast episode, you’ll get to hear from April and her mother’s advice that has helped guide her throughout her life, on issues such as:
- How to pray with power (instead of these wimpy prayers that fizzle out and die before they get a chance to take root).
- How to triumph over tragedy. You’ll hear exactly what April saw her mother and father do on the day they got the diagnosis that her mother had terminal cancer. This is shocking!
- How to be real. Goodness gracious! If there is one thing we moms need to come to terms with is how we are real women with real struggles that we can REALLY overcome.
- How to pray over your children before they ever walk out that door. (Don’t let them walk out without hearing this).
Make sure you check out April’s new book, “What My Mother Taught Me.” It’s a keeper!!
And if this has blessed you, then subscribe to the “Crazy Blessed” podcast, and keep the good times rolling!
Also, if you could leave a rating and review, that would sure be sweet of you. Plus, I may just show up at your house and give you a big hug (that’s not a threat…). All you have to do is view it in iTunes and go to “Ratings and Reviews.” It will have a tab there right underneath the customer reviews that says “leave a review.”
And if you’re a mom, then you could probably use a little help now and then. Here are some of my free resources that you can use any time you get a hankering (which is southern for, “when you feel like it”)–
The Bible is the greatest success book written, but if you’re highly distracted (hello, sister!) you may have a hard time reading it. Check out my Short-Attention Span Bible Reading Program.
Fed up with clutter? You’re preachin’ to the preacher! I’ve got the perfect plan for you to declutter your entire home (and life) in one month. Check out my 30-Day Power Purge.
Are you a mom who is totally overwhelmed? Feel like you’re at the end of your rope? Do you want to get organized, take control, and create a life you love? Check out my 21-Day Mom Rescue.
Evidently, we’re in the same boat here, so let’s stay connected!
