The Balanced MomCast with Sandy Cooper

Jesus said 8 times (!) in John 15 that He wants us to bear fruit. But what does that even mean? In EP65 we said that abiding is all the stuff that no one sees. Well, fruit is the stuff EVERYONE sees (and feels, and tastes, and smells) coming from you. Real fruit is the natural and inevitable outgrowth of a branch that is abiding in the Vine and is regularly and properly pruned by The Vinedresser.

The Balanced MomCast with Sandy Cooper

Welcome to a very frank yet loving discussion about what it really means to abide in Christ. At the risk of sounding completely over the top, studying, understanding, and then applying these truths has impacted every single area of my life. My heart is to encourage and equip you to live a fruitful life. So, if you’re ready for some tough love on how to become a branch in Christ that bears much fruit, then listen in.

When Loss Means Growth show art When Loss Means Growth

The Balanced MomCast with Sandy Cooper

Motherhood often feels like loss: Loss of your schedule, loss of control, loss of yourself. This can be very confusing because, as a Christian, you KNOW God has called you to live an abundant life! So, what's up with this? Are you doing something wrong? Or are you doing something right? (spoiler: you're doing something right!)

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 Message That Changed Everything show art The Message That Changed Everything

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.

The Balanced MomCast with Sandy Cooper

It's not a matter of if you'll fall, it's how you'll fall. You can berate yourself for falling and shove a handful of chocolate into your face, or you can get up and keep going. Your choice.

Don't surround yourself with people who will undermine your efforts to be healthy. Instead, gather a support team of likeminded individuals. Healthy community is the key to making better choices, in fitness and in life.
