Does the word “trauma” strike a bit of discomfort in your heart?
Can you empathize with the terror that a mother experiences when her child is struggling with something dark and frightening, and the mother has no idea how to help?
Trauma describes well what a mother feels upon discovering that her child has been targeted and attacked and is involved in things no mother wants to even think about.
What is she to do?
How can she help her child fight this battle that seems too big for either of them?
 
 
Woven throughout the book are real-life examples of the pain, confusion, and despair that mothers have felt – but also the relief, the confidence and strength they have found as they employed the skills, practices and principles in the book.

  •   If you don’t have the Spirit, don’t talk, think or listen. Today we are going to focus on the DON’T TALK part. Discussed the 3 Ways the Holy Ghost Can affect our Conversations: 1) Constraining us to say something hard, 2) Prompting us not to speak, 3) Being present in our conversations. It’s important for us to notice how we feel in all of these situations because the Spirit speaks to us all uniquely. The Spirit helps our communication by having what we say fall into place like the tetris game. If the Spirit isn’t there, Satan distorts everything we say to not fit. We can practice prepared responses by using two tools: 1)Writing situation at top of page and what you will say and what other person will say, and practicing responses with the Spirit. 2) The 4 Square Listening Tool.

Here are the two articles referenced in this podcast:

  • Reviewed 3 kinds of boundaries: Protection, Safety, & Inclusion, and Boundaries in Service (Knowing what we HAVE and what we can DO). Discussed boundaries in conflict or discussions with others. Conflict vs. contention. How we can use the special skills to help us go from The Drama Triangle to the Empowerment Dynamic. Use our awareness to go from the victim to being a Creator. Use our Assertiveness to go from the Persecutor to the Challenger. Use our Listening and Problem Solving to go from Rescuer to Coach. Summary for success in conflict discussion is to stay responsible for your own self/actions, express confidence is another’s worth, and don’t take over what is another’s responsibility, and have intentions to grow not to be right.

: Reviewed Boundaries and the 1st stages of doing “boundary work”: noticing ourselves, breaking down old thought pathways, noticing boundaries around us. Boundaries in Service: Discussed and compared scriptures Mosiah 2:17 & Mark 8:35 to Matt. 7:4-5. Knowing yourself and what you have and what you can give. Went over 5 Myths of Service. Discussed the Anti-Nephi-Lehies as an amazing boundary story example. Shared take-aways on our head (what we’re going to think about), our heart (what touched our emotions), and our feet (what we will do).

Ways to help you develop Inclusion boundaries: Write a Personal Bill of Rights; Thinking & Identifying: feelings are your friends and give you good information. Acknowledge them & see what they’re trying to teach you; Identify Core Needs. Shared take-aways.

  • Ashly Leavitt joins our Tuesday morning 11am MT Warrior Mothers Who Know meeting to share how boundaries increase our Joy and Success in Relationships. You may be surprised to discover that boundaries are all about keeping the spirit with us.  In fact, Ashly shares that boundaries are most effective when they are used to prioritize our connection with the spirit. Many of us might think boundaries are selfish, scary, punitive, hard, punishing, contentious, and confusing!

Ashly shares the tree types of boundaries, how we know when we need to implement a boundary, and assists many of the women in the meeting to consider their personal circumstances and how to best set up a boundary that will serve them and those they love.

Join Ashly on Tuesday, August 30th for a special Q&A at Warrior Mothers Who Know.

Kim Davis comes to our 11am Warrior Mothers Who Know Meeting for a follow-up Q&A after her stay by the tree “it’s all about connection” presentation. There are so many good nuggets in this, it’s worth a listen! Kim shares how Satan is a sneaky magician using the Illusions and deceptions of smoke and mirrors.

The enemy subtly uses the situations happening in our lives to stir up emotional smoke and shift the mirrors to so they reflect our situation or people in the situation as the enemy.

Caring for ourselves emotionally is a big deal! Kim shares some release and restore tools to care for our emotions in her caring enthusiastic Style that makes you feel seen. We haven’t had enough! We want more!

TJ Rowden’s message today helps us see and understand that “The battle today, between Babylon and Zion, is being waged between the synapses of our brains.”

What exactly does that mean? It’s where the focus of our brain is. TJ teaches us that if we compare where we are now and measure it to the IDEAL, we will experience feelings of failure, frustration, disappointment, low self-esteem, and depression.

However, if we measure our circumstance from where we began to where we are now, we will gain feelings of Success, Fulfillment, Confidence, High Self-Esteem, Enjoyment and Optimism.

Sometimes it’s hard to see why 1% increase makes any difference. TJ teaches us the difference of Guilt vs Shame.

“Jesus had not finished his work when his body was slain, neither did he finish it after his resurrection from the dead; Although he had accomplished the purpose for which he then came to the earth, he had not fulfilled all his work. And when will he? Not until he has redeemed and saved every son and daughter of our father Adam that have been or ever will be born upon this earth to the end of time…That is his mission. We will not finish our work until we have saved ourselves, and then not until we shall have saved all depending upon us; for we are to become saviors upon Mount Zion, as well as Christ.”

-President Packer, October 1995, “This Brilliant Morning of Forgiveness”

“If for a while the harder you try, the harder it gets, take heart. So, it has been with the best people who ever lived… So keep loving. Keep trying. Keep trusting. Keep believing. Keep growing. Heaven is cheering you on today, tomorrow, and forever.”

-Elder Jeffrey R Holland

 Lisa has a true momma heart, especially as she shares some of her “big breaks”:  the disappointments and difficult challenges she has experienced with her children.  Before she shares the details of the circumstances, she wisely shares and gives us information about three different vessels. A Lachrymatory, or tear jar; a Herodian lamp, a lamp like what the 10 virgins might have used; and a broken bowl using the Japanese art of Kintsugi to repair it —the joining together of the pieces with a special kind of lacquer from the Urushi tree mixed with gold. The symbolism and the explanation of the different vessels is wonderful to know.
 
Lisa shares about the loss of her young teenage son due to death of a unique neurological disease, the loss of another son who chose to live a different lifestyle and how his choices affected Lisa’s relationship with him, as well as the relationship separation Lisa experienced due to another child’s choice to distance themself from The Church and its teachings. Lisa speaks about her own disease – a hard heart. She speaks about real emotions of anger, disappointment, guilt, and shame while dealing with these “big breaks” and her own brokenness.
 
Trusting in the Savior, attending the temple, and time have been her healers – TRUST, TEMPLE, and TIME. Sharing her testimony of the Savior and His Atonement, Lisa knows coming to Him helps us to “Hold on” in His way.
 
Lisa is generous in her sharing in a real and vulnerable way. Her experiences and stories will touch your momma heart and might give you some hope to “Hold on thy way” with a few of the “big breaks” you may be experiencing in your own journey.

We thank Lisa Grant for her message of hope and love and testifying of the Savior Jesus Christ, even in her brokenness.

 Kim Davis’ message, “It’s All About Connection” is a hopeful message for all!  As a Behavioral Specialist for Daughters of Light, a coach for new mentor certification training for Life Changing Services, and as an Eternal Warrior coach, she has experience with connections. Especially with God and the Spirit.

Kim suggests what we can do to connect with ourselves, with God, with others, and why it is important.  The adversary seeks any opportunity to have us disconnect with others and Kim explains the enemy does so by tricking us with “smoke and mirrors”, like what a magician uses.  You’ll love her analogy and will begin to understand and see the “smoke and mirrors” the enemy might be using in your life too.

Kim encourages listeners to not see the people we love as the enemy.  Instead, behold your little ones, behold your spouse, behold yourself—open your eyes, see them, and have compassion.  Kim reminds us we are all fighting hard battles. Behold the little one in you and in your spouse or children.  God sees the mess, but He also sees the healing and infinite possibility within you.

Kim speaks of connection, love, sanctification, and exaltation. She also reminds us of this important and empowering truth she often says: “Fight the REAL battle! The REAL battle is to have the Spirit, to have the Spirit is the battle. When you win that battle, you win ALL the battles!!!”  It really is all about connection. Connecting with God through the Spirit is key.

You can learn more about Kim at https://daughtersoflight.org/ or she invites you to connect with her through email at eternalfamilywarriors@gmail.com.

 

We thank Kim Davis for her passionate message about connection!

Sometimes it is impossible to explain why bad things happen to good, innocent people. “You are not defined by these terrible things that have been done to you. You are, in glorious truth, defined by your eternally existing identity as a son or daughter of God.” Elder Patrick Kearon

“Those experiencing abuse, violence, or oppression may ask if they are beyond repair or are eligible for the blessings of the Savior’s Atonement. Whatever has happened to you, He is not ashamed of you or disappointed in you. He loves you in a way you have yet to discover. And you will discover it as you trust in His promises…Our merciful Savior, victorious over darkness and depravity, has the power to right all wrongs.” Elder Patrick Kearon

Jamie references Elder Patrick Kearon’s General Conference talk on April 2, 2022, “He Is Risen With Healing in His Wings: We Can Be More Than Conquerors”  We also encourage you to also consider it if you have been abused and need the Saviors healing power in your life. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/2022/04/24kearon?lang=eng

“Hello Everyone,

This is KC Broadhead, the editor of this and the Like Dragons Did They Fight Podcast. Today, is a Mother’s Day episode.

I wanted to honor both my mother and grandmother. They have always been incredible, stalwart, examples of seeking the spirit and trying your best.

My mom, Karen, has always been there for me through my best times, cheering me on and lifting me higher, and my worst times, when I have had no hope.

I am so blessed to have an incredible mother who I am so close with and love with all my heart. I never get tired of editing her voice as she uses her incredible talent to shine the light for others.

I am so grateful for my grandmother who became my companion in physical misery, the person I could relate to, and the person I could think of when I felt at my worst. I love you Mom! I love you Grandma!

I hope you enjoy this Mother’s Day episode!”

 In this week’s podcast Maurice Harker, Director of Life Changing Services, teaches Warrior Chemistry.

We invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the power of this episode! It could change your life!

Historically, the solution to misbehaving or acting outside of our values has been “thought control.” 

God has not left you powerless. You are powerful! “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”(2 Timothy 1:7).

God instilled in our bodies chemicals designed specifically to be used in times of danger for protection.

●  Warrior Chemistry is a very powerful, courageous, focused, committed state of mind.

●  Warrior Chemistry is purposeful, intentional righteous ferocity.

●  Warrior Chemistry is a deeply spiritual response that causes a very physical reaction in the body.

Jennifer had plan for her life but realized quickly that the Lord had a different plan. 

After the death of one of her children and another one caught in the trap of pornography, Jennifer shares with us the light that came into her life as she learned the power of the Atonement. 

“You don’t have to have everything all together to have something to share. When we give what we have, the Lord will magnify us.”

Jennifer takes us on her journey of learning, “Not every voice in your head is a trusted voice.”

Wowzer! This episode is going to be one you are so grateful to hear!!!  It’s an eye-opener! 

There is a difference between connection and healthy connection and knowing the difference can make ALL the difference! 

Our Heavenly Father created us for connection because he loves us and knows one of the greatest gifts we can receive is the deep experience of healthy intimacy. 

Understanding the double funnel theory Chris describes, you will clearly see why God has set up healthy guardrails for his children to allow for our increased happiness in connecting in the way His plan outlines.

Amy Frei’s hope-filled message truly is “From Tragedy to Triumph” as she shares Sarah’s story.

Amy shares many details of the July 2020 tragic car accident of her daughter Sarah, who was hit head on by a drunk driver. Sarah was instantly paralyzed from the waist down and subsequently had both legs amputated above the knee.

As mothers who know, your heart breaks to see your children in pain and you too will feel  as you hear Sarah’s story and pleading prayers of a mother.

While not spoken during the podcast but shared in the webinar meeting chat by someone who personally knows the Freis, was this beautiful message and tribute to Sarah and Amy: “I just had the blessing of being with Sarah for the weekend in Arizona. She was saying that it bothers her when people doubt that she could possibly be okay and happy.  Almost like they think she is faking her happiness. She isn’t. She is deeply, truly happy. An amazing soul. Just like her mother.”  We hope this message fills you with hope!

Blenda McGary shares many beautiful messages in her presentation of “Change Your Prayers, Change Your Life” in this Stay by the Tree: Messages of Hope message.

Blenda generously opens her heart and lets us see a bit of her challenge and heartache as a woman unable to have children, the joy of adoption, the pain of a stillborn child, and how being a mother is the hardest AND the greatest joy.

Through these experiences and others, Blenda has learned that changing her prayers changes her life and her perspective. We too can change our prayers…

Pray for a change in “me”, praying for help on how He can help “me”, pray for a change in perspective. Pray and ask for help from the other side. Pray to have hope, pray for joy, pray for peace. Pray to connect with God.

Blenda reminds us that when there is no peace in me, there IS peace in Christ. When there is no hope in me, there IS hope in Christ. When there is no love in me, there IS love in Christ.

The truths of her message are enhanced when she moves to her piano and plays the chorus to the peaceful and stirring song, “Peace in Christ”.

Blenda refers to the following in her message:

The “Paper Sunday” journal.

Eva Timothy’s image of the promises to Covenant Israel. 

The music video of “Peace in Christ” (from the 2018 Youth Theme Video).

Taylor Jones shares with Karen Broadhead, Director of Mothers Who Know, her reasons for fighting her pornography struggles and why she does not give up. She knows healing is possible when we shine light on the value of reaching out for help, healing through connection, and remembering that our Father in Heaven and his Son, Jesus Christ, always want us and will never leave us.

 

The hope in Taylor’s voice and her pleasant, friendly nature are sure to make you rethink some of your perceptions about values and contradicting behaviors. She is full of talent!  Her favorite animal is the pacific spiny lump suckerfish, she has fun interests/hobbies, she is not afraid of snakes, and lets them hug her, as she works on the education team at a fantastic aquarium.

Taylor openly shares, “I honestly thought it was impossible because I had been in the thick of it for seven years and I was like, there’s no way I’m going to be able to overcome this. This is going to plague me for the rest of my life.”

She shares that in Warrior Women of Light “we have each other’s backs, it’s not a competition where we race against each other. We race against the adversary. It’s so nice to go to a place where you’re all working on the same thing and there’s no shame, no judgment about it. There’s so much love and you’re all there for each other.”

Taylor describes how she has learned how to actively fight against satan by using spiritual armor to discern him. One way the women actively fight in their weekly groups is to share their answers to these powerful questions.

“Why are you fighting? Why don’t you just give up?”

Here is Taylor’s inspiring reply.

“I fight because I came too dang far to let satan do his gross, disgusting tactics on me!”

“I fight because satan does not have a right to my thoughts or to my body or to my actions. The person that’s in control of those things is me!”

“I fight because I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father, and I want to do what I can to make my Heavenly Father proud and also to return back to Him. I’m not going to let satan ruin that!”

“I fight for me. I fight for my future, and my future family!”

“I fight for other people that are also fighting so that they can see that it can be done!”

Listener, why are YOU fighting? We hope your fight includes sharing this podcast with the people you love and fight for!

You are so awesome!!  Together in the fight!

Come on in, the door is open to feel the Savior’s love!  Karen Broadhead, Director of Mothers Who Know, interviews Katherine McCullough, who shares her 10-year struggle with pornography and sexual self-mastery. Her message is one of deep healing and reclaiming her divine identity. Because she knows the real discomfort and fear that comes up when we need to reach out for help, she thoughtfully shares, “When you are in ‘Warrior Women of Light’, you can’t feel fear even if you want to…there’s just too much love here!”

 

Like a caring friend, Katherine reaches out to other young women who are now experiencing the loneliness and shame she did and says – “Satan is the enemy, not you. Please realize you are so much more than he is making you out to be. The Savior’s Atonement is so infinite that you can be on day one (of sobriety) every single day but if you are facing toward Christ and you are trying…that is the power of the Atonement.”

Jesus Christ has a loving, understanding, singular approach for His beautiful daughters who are doubting their worthiness to receive His care and help.

Katherine testifies of the Savior’s reaching for her, and you. – “One of the biggest things I learned was the power of the Atonement. I felt for years that I was always going to be this way, that I was never going to concur this. I learned that’s a lie! The truth is, because of the Atonement, because of the sacrifice my Savior made for me, He has healed me!  He has transformed me into a woman who knows her worth and her power over Satan. A woman who knows her divine right to be loved, to have a family, to feel confident before God. That’s something I didn’t think I would ever feel.  But because of this program I feel the power of the Atonement.”

We invite you to open your door and invite others to feel the Savior’s love by passing this healing episode along. Thank You!

Welcome fellow warrior women! This espisode is going to give you wings to fly!
Karen Broadhead, Director of Mothers Who Know, interviews Jessica Sorensen, who shares the energy and courage it takes to fight for oneself while battling ANXIETY and DEPRESSION.

With her life not rolling out the way she had planned, Jessica searched for resources to understand and address her anxiety and depression for several years in one-on-one counseling, with a variety of therapists. She noticed she did a bit better, but throughout the week and when she was no longer in therapy she would spiral into discouragement and frustration again.

The day she courageously made a call to inquire about the therapeutic program for women at Life Changing Services changed her life.  She discovered the strength and power that comes from a team. She learned that aside from the clinical aspects of her anxiety and depression she was in a spiritual battle with the enemy of her joy and peace.

Satan was determined to steal Jessica’s power and identity by isolating her in battle because he is afraid of her, and all women who are connected to cheer up and bless humanity.  She remembered what her spirit had always known… She was a WARRIOR!  She was a WOMAN OF LIGHT! Jessica wisely surrounded herself with the support and assistance of a powerful Warrior Women of Light team! Now she is armed with the applicable training and tools she needs to win her battles. In courageous confidence she is skilled at protecting and defending herself as needed in the art of spiritual warfare with weapons of light.

Her allegiance is to her Savior and Champion, Jesus Christ.  As she fights with Him and for Him she makes broken look beautifully invincible, and the burdens upon her shoulders look like a pair of wings!

Please spread your wings and fly this episode to all your people.  Thank You!

Welcome, you are in for a treat!  If you are a female you will be thanking yourself for listening to this special 6 part series on Mothers Who Know Podcast! We are so excited to share with you two of our empowering training programs offered by Life Changing Services, Warrior Women of Light and Daughters of Light. Moms get their warrior on as resource detectives when their children are hurting. Sometimes resources are within our reach we don’t know exist, they are forgotten about, or we know about them but don’t use them. Perhaps we think we don’t need them, don’t want them, or can’t have them because we think it’s outside our ability to pay for it, or support it, or have time for it. We hope you discover in your listening that our message is, YOUR DAUGHTERS ARE WORTH IT! YOU ARE WORTH IT!

Today we kick off our series by hearing from Maurice Harker, the Director of Life Changing Services, and Aneladee Milne, Director of Daughters of Light and Warrior Women of Light sharing the creation and purpose of these programs. Enjoy your treat and start appreciating yourself for increasing your knowledge about and understanding of why these programs are needed and why you and your daughters are worth it! Please be sure to hug yourself when you pass these six treats (episodes) around to those you care about.  🙂

Have you felt alone, frightened, or in the dark with the load you carry as a mother?

In this special Christmas message, Karen describes personal experiences and tender emotions she’s felt while mothering new born babes and grown children.

Drawing on the words from Amy Grant’s “Breath of Heaven”, Karen reminds us that we too are exactly the mother God choose for our children.  He will  “hold us together”, “lighten our darkness “ and “be forever near us”  in our sacred roles as mothers.

Jump in the trenches with BJ Hill today! If you’ve felt overwhelmed, helpless, and like a horrible parent, you’re in good company! BJ’s genuine message is vulnerable, relatable, and hopeful. You’ll come away with proven tactics and practical tips to help you with your daily battles. As an outreach specialist for Life Changing Services, BJ has provided gentle support and valuable resources to mothers for years. You’ll be encouraged by her explanation of the “triple A approach”, “baking soda basics”, “ditch false doctrine”, and “taking off the mortal watch”. BJ encourages listeners to still smile in the mess and is quick to remind us that Christ specializes in broken things. Jesus Christ and His Gospel bring hope, right in the middle of hard. 
 

Shauna Carter joins us today! When Shauna’s cancer returned, she desperately questioned God, “Haven’t I already learned it all?” God answered, “No, I have so much more to give you!” Shauna has discovered that changing her thoughts can dramatically change the way she perceives challenges. The result? To have greater hope, peace, and joy. Thoughts such as, “no one is exempt”; “there are no wayward children”; and “we are all 50% awesome and 50% a hot mess.”  You’ll love Shauna’s message and will come away with some new thoughts you’ll want to “try on” too!  

 Like you, Jessica’s met face to face with some real stretchers in life and parenting!  Jessica stresses the importance of clinging to relationships over the outcomes we hope for. She also reminds us to be kind to ourselves, not to put limitations on the atonement, and embrace our beautiful life- even the messy unexpected.  You’re going to love this validating and faith-filled message of hope from our special guest, and “real” mom, Jessica!

And how can I maintain my own gospel principles and show strength while being a good mom, keeping out the contention, and making sure my own emotions are not triggered from comments by other family members?

One of the most powerful things women can learn is that not every voice you hear in your head is a trusted voice.  
 
Often, the things we hear in our heads are not coming from a trusted source, they are coming from the adversary. He will try to discourage you, to make you feel inferior, to make you feel stupid, and overall try to drag you down. Don’t let him get away with that.  Learn to “STAY IN YOUR TRUTH!” and better determine when you are hearing a lie.  Join Karen and other Mom Power moms as they learn just a little more about this and how it applies in their life.

She asks if the adversary can get in our heads and create negative thoughts or temptations, then do we ever actually have our “own” thoughts? How can we tell what is our own thought, what is from the Spirit, what is true, and what is a false idea from the adversary? What kind of tools can we use to figure that out. To join us in our free weekly support group for mothers, called Warrior Mothers Who Know, you can find the link and information on our website.  https://motherswhoknow.org/warrior-mothers-support-group/  All moms are welcome.

Karen talks about all the things a mother knows. We are all in a battle against the adversary, we are at war, and this life will not be without wounds. But, WOUNDS DO NOT MEAN FAILURE! In the Book of Mormon, the Sons of Helaman found battles, and all were wounded, but none perished. Our children will have wounds in this life of some kind, we as moms will have wounds, but that does not mean we won’t win the war. The outcome has already been decided–with the Savior, we will win, everytime! Join Karen as she teaches with the Spirit about some of the things we as mothers know.

This is the audio from one of Karen’s Eternal Warriors classes–protecting our families from the evils of pornography. However, this is probably not the training you think it’s going to be. In this training, Karen teaches parents that the most important thing they need to know, and their kids need to know, is WHO THEY ARE–divine sons and daughters of God. We need to teach them that our homes and hearts are “a place of grace” and that its okay to make mistakes or even feel like you have failed–that is what the Atonement is for. Mothers can have such a huge influence on their children and how that handle situations. This is a powerful lesson.  To get an ebook copy of Karen’s book “Momma Trauma,” CLICK HERE and to find out more information about Eternal Warriors check out the website.

Momma Verla reminds us that the influence of a mother is a precious gift and even though we may not realize it at the moment, our efforts will have a lasting impact in the lives of our children.

We all know its important, and would love to receive it, but often have no idea exactly how. In this episode, Karen talks about how she learned to receive revelation using different colored pens while “Writing Letters to God” and writing in her journal.
