Best of Sally: Becoming A Friend Worth Having

Podcast cover

Having moved 17 times, 6 times internationally, I have learned that friendships really don’t usually just happen. Most of the community I now have, have happened as a result of me calling people, having gatherings in my home, making memories with women who inspire me. It is like planting a garden. When I till the soil and plant the seed of love, encouragement, thoughtfulness and reaching out, the seeds of friendship just naturally grow.

Episode #92: A Heart for Patience with Sally Clarkson and Kristen Kill

Podcast cover
Read more
I can do all things through Him [Christ] who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 "Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty … I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well." TEDDY ROOSEVELT

What are you bearing today that feels impossible to you? Are there circumstances, difficulties or burdens that drain your heart and soul? Often times, when we are called upon to grow in character and endurance, when we need others to help encourage us most of all, is when we can feel the most isolated and utterly alone. In this podcast, Sally and Kristen want to encourage you and give you tools to overcome what you are facing today by giving FIVE practical ways to cultivate a heart of patience and peace in your own life and in the hearts of your children. They talk candidly about their own struggles, verses that have helped to bolster their hearts and have meant so much to their own families, and what it has meant to them to learn how to trust God's story for their lives. 

Then, Kristen is joined by Mom Heart national team member, Gretchen Roberts who shares her heart for ministry and has an exciting announcement about a new membership site called Cultivating Life With Sally that is opening in September! So many of you have asked for more teaching, training and opportunities to learn from Sally for so long and our entire team is thrilled that there is now a place where you can do just that! Check out more information below and be sure to subscribe to SallyClarkson.com to stay in the loop on updates about when membership opens.

What we Talk about:

-5 Things you can cultivate in your life to be able to endure faithfully

-How to embrace faithfulness as a daily choice in your life

-Learning to believe that God truly cares for you, that He will be faithful in His time, and believe that your faith has value.

-How to gain an eternal perspective and allow our character to be formed in suffering.

-When and why it is important to get help and counseling to encourage you.

-Why it is important to rest and refresh in the midst of stress and ideas for how to find simple ways to delight in life and find strength to keep going.

-Learning how to invest yourself in Truth, and take every thought captive when anxiety and fear creep in.
