Hey Mamas !
As a mum of two, I spent a few years riding the wave of sensationalist, scaremongering, internet-parenting gloom. From every direction, I was told the high statistics that my children would turn out porn-addicted, disaffected and depressed with no
love for themselves or God.
I have to admit, it was a scary wave to ride, and it nearly drowned me. But in all of the hyped-up opinions of modern
day misery, one element was missing - a heavenly father. What about those children who know their heavenly Father,
who walk hand in hand with Jesus and hear the quiet whisper of the Holy Spirit? What if my role as “mum” was nothing
to do with fending off evil and everything to do with introducing my children of promise to a God who loves them all the
way to the cross and beyond, to a God who says, “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for”. (Jeremiah 29:11 MSG)
The Mum Show exists to add God's voice to the modern day dialogue on parenting. To the mum who feels overwhelmed, the mum who has lost all sense of herself, the mum who needs to laugh or cry with a kindred spirit, the mum who needs some of that grace for her family or herself, make yourself comfy, the next 30 minutes are for you.

CREATOR & HOST
It’s Not For The Faint Hearted!
The Mum Show takes an honest, grace-filled, soul-searching, light-hearted look at being a mum in today’s world.
We explore how we can raise sons and daughters of promise, who flourish in God’s purposes - whilst dealing with their mood swings, school trips, friendship dramas, extended family, modern day pressures, modern day fears, bedtime routines - the list goes on!
Join Marina, Emma and Clare as they explore a Biblical model of grace-filled parenting and consider the unique mum-identity God has over every mums life.
