In EP61 I introduced you to our new series based on John 15: Abide. If you haven't listened to that episode yet, do that first! Today I continue by introducing you to the Cast of Characters and the 5 Branches. Then we discuss in detail the branch in Christ that does not bear fruit. What is it? How does it get that way? What happens to it?

The Balanced MomCast with Sandy Cooper

In 2017, in the midst of the most exhausting season of parenting, God led me to a portion of scripture that changed the way I think, the way I act, the way I pray, and the way I parent. In fact, I cannot think of a single area of my life that has not been transformed by this message. Today, I'm introducing a series that has the potential to transform you as well.

Getting stronger and healthier isn't only about will power or programs or dietary guidelines. It's also about learning to access your reserve tank when you think you can't go any further.
