Thanks for joining me today. This episode is all about living out love in your community and
influencing the next generation in creative ways.
My guest today heads up a vibrant ministry at my church here in Nashville called Moms
together- which was a huge blessing to me back when I had littles. It was just getting off the
ground then- since then, Christen Hodges and her team have been taking it to a whole new level! (And they invented cars… :-0)
You know how I’m always talking about the importance of having a support system in place?
(Especially important as you’re raising a family!) Well, so many of the things my new friend talks
about today, are things I saw my aunties living out in India.
Typically, I would save the legacy question for the end especially with a guest that I really
haven’t known for every long but in this interview, I just got right to it bc Christen’s mission
statement says it so beautifully.
As you listen to her speak about these topics, so near and dear to your heart, just imagine if we
poured all our smarts and talents and God given skills into parenting like it was a career,
actually taking classes to keep up with new developments; like we do ongoing training for other
jobs? Just think- how would that change our families???
Christen’s on instagram @christenhodges. Go follow her; the pics of her kids are adorable. Her
youngest has a birth story you won’t believe! It’s one of the many reasons I am so impressed
with this young woman; she gave birth to her 3rd child in her home by herself- yes GIRL! In the
37 minutes it took her husband to drive to church and back.…the baby was there! This woman
You gotta listen to the audio of her husband’s 911 call in the outtakes. :-0) Pretty amazing!!!
I’ll be posting a photo of Christen’s family mission statement on my insta page @thelisteningwell
so look for that too. Our mission statement won’t be done for a while- I can’t wait to hang it on
my wall. I’ll post a photo of ours when it’s finished.
If you’d like information on how to create your own family mission statement to hang on your
wall (OR just order it like I did :-0) then look for that info in the caption of my photo.
In a couple of weeks, we’re going to hear from Dallas Jenkins, creator of a little tv series called
“The Chosen.” Have you seen it yet??? Oh, it’s SO good!!! Go to thechosen.tv

to discuss parenting, adoption, spiritual formation, or life in general, you know I always love
hearing from you!
Till next time,
