Episode Summary:

All moms worry, right? Motherhood tempts many moms to worry, especially about the wellbeing of their children. Are they breathing? How can I keep them healthy? What if they don’t make friends at school? But for moms who experience anxiety, worry quickly elevates into debilitating overwhelm, fear, and doubt. This can make normal tasks of motherhood overwhelming and joy-less. Join me with Courtney Devich as we share about Anxiety in Motherhood.

 

Quotables from the Episode:

  • Many moms believe the adage, “I’m a mom, it’s my job to worry.”
  • If not addressed, anxiety will dictate your decisions.
  • My experience with mental health issues drew me closer to God.
  • Anxiety does not mean that moms can’t experience joy in their parenting!
  • God’s going to support you and take care of you if you feel like you’re slipping into the depths of your anxiety.
  • If you’re experiencing anxiety or depression as a mom, have honest conversations with your spouse about how to best support you.

 

Scripture References:

  • Psalm 94:19 NIV When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.
  • 1 Peter 5:7 NIV Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
  • Psalm 56:3 NIV When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
