Laura Wifler, the cofounder of Risen Motherhood, shared with us how the well-known ministry and non-profit began with the goal of encouraging, equipping, and challenging moms to apply the gospel to their everyday lives. We loved talking with her about how women can champion one another, no matter the path they choose, in regard to working, staying at home, making choices about education, and so much more.
Plus, make sure to keep listening until the end of the episode for part three of our conversation with Edouard Ndecky! Today, Edouard shared how his community was “marked” by his shoebox since it became a tool to share the gospel with his community. Through this four-part series, you’ll learn how the shoebox gift Edouard received contained much-needed items, along with a fun gift that brought joy for years to come. National Collection Week is November 13–20, 2023, and you can help shape a child’s life by packing a shoebox gift too!
