Modern Missionary Mamas

Because Christ is our all in all, all over the world.

Moving Through Grief

This is one of the best articles about grief I’ve ever read. And don’t just think of grief as the death of a loved one…I’ve grieved many things unrelated to death. Don’t skip this one.

MMM Podcast Episode 1: Ministry’s Changing Seasons with Liz Schandorff, Haiti

It’s time, mamas. You’ve been patient. Six of you asked for it, and boy, have we answered. Here’s how to listen:

-Right in this post! Just click play. You can also download it from here. (Amazing, eh? I know your internet stinks, mamas; I’ve got your back.)

-On Soundcloud. They have a nice app for your phone and if you add to a playlist or a station, you’ll always see when a new one’s posted (I think). And please, if you like it, hit like and share it! Let’s spread the word.

Note: I’m not seeing a way to download it from the app…weird. Sorry.

10 ways teachers can support TCK’s

How to get a lego out of your kid’s nose…

Okay, so E is always sticking stuff up her nose, so I know it’s just a matter of time before I use this trick. Also, we’re overseas, so it’s harder to get to medical care…and frankly, I just thought this was genius. So enjoy Georgia and her ill-fated nose incident!

Get ready, people. This is coming at you on Monday. I’m, like, 90% sure you’re going to *love* it. I’m so excited to share it with you!


Podcast update


So of all my readers, about six of you responded that you’d listen to a Missionary Mamas podcast. Needless to say, that was an underwhelming response.

That’s when I realized that I actually don’t care how big the audience is; I want to do this. I know there will be some who will benefit more from this format, maybe who haven’t even found this site yet. I probably won’t record with any regularity, but hopefully, it’s an encouragement nevertheless.

So the podcast you didn’t want will be coming soon: I’ve lined up my first guest, and we’re recording on Wednesday! She’s a woman who’s near and dear to my heart, and I know you’ll love hearing from her.

Stay tuned!

It’s a radio joke.


What neon lycra and chapped nipples taught me about denying it gets hard sometimes

Anne isn’t a missionary mama, but her advice crosses all borders. And she has amazing taste in books, so that covers a multitude of sins.
