“Being strong isn’t about perfection and it’s not about having it all together. It’s about having the tools to shift and turn it around when we’re feeling overwhelmed, distracted and looking for a pathway out.”
How do you define a “strong woman”?
This is one of those phrases that represents what we want to be, but often we never quite feel strong, especially when our lives are filled with struggle. Strong isn’t having it all together and strong isn’t perfection. In my experience, I’ve learned that strength is often something that I can’t always see in myself, but I can make decisions that will make me strong – whether I feel it or not.
On today’s Better Together podcast, my friend Susan Seay shares the three decisions that can start making today that will infuse your life with strength. Best of all, today’s conversation is deep and ‘fo real! As a wife and homeschool mother of 7, Susan talks about tough family challenges that their family has navigated such as parenting, marriage struggles and work-life balance issues.
She’s the author of Intentional Parenting: Parenting on Purpose When Life Gets Busy and speaks nationally at conferences and events. Susan hosts a highly engaging podcast called the “Mentor 4 Moms” podcast.
Imagine what it would feel like each day for you to wake up with the:
Strength to face any challenge;
Strength to overcome failure;
Strength to go for your dreams;
Strength to trust God no matter what happens!
If you want to have this kind of strength, buckle up and press play for today’s conversation. You deserve to invest these 30 minutes in yourself, your life and your future.
What are the three decisions that strong women must make?
- A strong woman establish an answer to the question “Who is God?” (Warning: This question has two different meaning, so listen as Susan brilliantly explains!)
- A strong woman determines what it means to live intentionally in her present moment.
- A strong woman are committed to trusting that better days are ahead
