Hear how we can fight against the wiles of the world and the forces of darkness that so easily ensnare us by getting back to the basics of our Christian faith. According to Dr. Spencer, we need to be “pleading with God to act in our midst to strengthen us and protect us” from the evils of the world we live in.

God’s Plan for the Overwhelmed Mom by Dr. James Dobson

Part 1 After establishing a successful career as an attorney, Sarah Parshall Perry and her husband had three children, two of whom are on the autism spectrum. Called by God to stay at home to raise her children, Sarah wondered whether simply ensuring that her kids were fed and dressed was all she could do. So, sporting the proverbial messy ponytail and dirty yoga pants, she authored Mommy Needs a Raise (Because Quitting Is Not an Option), in which she encourages Christian moms to seek God and embrace humility and forgiveness. Part 2 Are you an overwhelmed mom? Sarah Parshall Perry, author of Mommy Needs a Raise (Because Quitting Is Not an Option) can relate! In this Part 2 edition, she continues her candid and colorful conversation with host Dr. James Dobson. Despite having two sons with autism spectrum disorder and a strong-willed daughter, Sarah’s wildly unrealistic aspirations as a super mom and homemaker were causing her to become a nervous wreck. Now she focuses completely on loving the Lord and her kids.
