“It’s been a crazier kind of day. I didn’t play with my daughter 1:1 for very long before I had to get to an apt. After I returned, my son needed my full attention. Then my husband came home for lunch, and I was finally able to leave to pick up my car from the shop. So much happened, and I didn’t realize that my daughter was upset with me when I got home – and trying to get my attention. But I could see it was nap time, and physically she was beyond tired. I gave her a verbal heads up that nap time was happening, and she had a full-blown toddler tantrum for the first time ever. She’s had many, but never running into the room screaming NOO so gutturally. It was so loud and all of a sudden I was shocked! It could have sounded like defiance. But I heard so clearly, she needs more connection. And even though she resisted for a good 5 mins, I got her back, calmed, and apologized. I was able to play with her before she went to sleep, reassuring her I’d be here when she woke up and that we’d play together. She went from screaming “NO, MOMMA GO!” when I tried to get ready for the nap to sound asleep as I left her room. I could feel how easily I could have missed her needs cause it was a busy day. To encourage you mamas in the thick of tantrums. Just sitting here so thankful for Holy Spirit, your mentoring, Lisa, and our babies that help teach us and make us better.”
SHE NEEDS CONNECTION
While everyone gets something different out of our JOURNEY class, one of the biggest takeaways is HOW to parent. Sadly, few of us had parents who modeled the Kingdom well for us, leaving us with a desire without a vision for how to make it a reality. It is not uncommon for moms to message me weeping over the lessons as they finally feel like they can SEE how to mother their children. Yet, I have such a feeling of joy and freedom being released through these Kingdom activities.

I loved receiving this testimony!!! Crawl into the world of this little boy and how his mom responded to his real heart.
“Hi Lisa, I’m not sure you’ll get this, I know you receive a lot of messages but I just finished your JOURNEY course and had to share something that happened today. My three-year-old has been struggling in Sunday school for the last month or so. When I signed him in he immediately cried and clung to me. I told the teacher I would keep him for worship and try again in a bit. We went in and started singing and he just hugged me and snuggled through two songs. I brought it up that I would take him after singing and he started fussing again. The band started singing Jeremy Camp “Same Power” right then and it hit me – your authority lesson! I asked him if he wanted to not be afraid and then I said, ‘Fear, I see you,’ and commanded it to leave and then ushered in peace. After the song I asked if he was ready and he was a completely different kid!! He walked to the room holding my hand and didn’t look back after saying bye to me. I am embarrassed to say I’m shocked, I shouldn’t be, because this is our God, but I just can’t recall ever feeling this powerful before in my parenting. I’m just so excited to have done this class and learn things I can use to help my kids through life! Thank you, thank you!!!”
I get excited when a parent gets excited about what God is doing!
A testimony from an international mom: “I am thrilled to be taking this class now, and it’s amazing how so many things going on seem to be lining up for teaching the girls in this way and learning so much myself. I am hungry for this. And all those who hunger and thirst for righteousness WILL be filled! Yes, Lord and amen. The testimony about Ellie brought tears to my eyes. I can see clearly how my life would have been entirely different if I had known then what I know now. I cannot say enough that I am thrilled to be learning to teach my girls these things. I am so thankful for the call on your life, Lisa!”
A young boy stole some candy from his mom’s closet. She knew it, but he denied it. It is hard for a parent to know they are being lied to, but she trusted God would work it out. A while later, she went to him and expressed that she was disappointed and called out that he was a truth teller, but he continued to deny it. She remained in SHALOM despite the chaos. Finally, before bed, he came to her and confessed. He explained how candy tastes so good, and he wanted it so bad. She asked him, “Really? How good is that candy tasting knowing that you had to lie to get it and break connection?” He acknowledged it wasn’t very sweet after all.
This is an outstanding example of partnering with the Holy Spirit in our parenting and giving Him room to work on our children.
The other thing I want to point out is that the above interaction is how to train boys in purity. There is an emotional element to it for girls, but for boys, there is a self-control element. He is learning just because he wants something, or it feels good doesn’t mean it is worth the cost or right.
“Thank you for the encouragement, Lisa, and for cheering us on! Seeing this in practice is building such a foundation for wanting more! Talk about ‘Heaven is for real!'”
“I have made a few decisions in my life that have marked significant trajectory launches in my journey with Christ and learning from you this month is one of them. Like bomb size significant. Really powerful and opening up Heaven on earth for me.”
“I see the amazing capabilities of our children, and I want them to know they have it all with Jesus. I want to shout ‘Go!’ as I run behind them! Thank you, Lisa, you have opened my eyes to see clearer as a momma!”
“Wow! I am picking up so much truth in this class already. Not only do I feel this season is different with Jesus, but I’m also already experiencing it, as it’s SO refreshingly good. I can feel my spirit coming alive again.”

I absolutely loved reading this comment from a mom taking our JOURNEY class.
“After taking the online class, I am already seeing so much of the Kingdom being released in our house. Our mindsets have changed, and our language has changed. I was getting impatient about the kids getting their shoes on as we were trying to get out the door, and my youngest son (6 years) said to me, ‘Mom, are you speaking life right now?’ Be still my heart -THEY ARE GETTING IT! (And props to him for calling out ‘impatience’ and asking if I wanted to claim it. Now I have accountability too!)”
I want my life to be a vessel of transformation for others to find, see and experience Him. Messages like this make me stop and thank God for the way He set me free and gave me a voice to help others.
A mom taking our JOURNEY class shares: “I felt like I could actually comprehend who I was created to be by doing this lesson. This is changing me deeply, and I’m so excited to feel it!”
People think parenting and raising children are the same thing. We raise chickens, not children. Raising chickens looks like letting them follow us around aimlessly, pecking at our ankles, throwing them some food, and cleaning up poop every once in a while. That should not describe our parenting. As parents of powerful children, we teach, train, and equip them through intentional actions. Simply having a child under your foot 24/7 is not parenting.
