What You Missed :: latest from 4word
For this week’s interview, we talked with three 4word women, Cynthia Nwaubani, Hallie Graves and Diane Paddison, about their philosophy of motherhood. From parenting biological children to blending families to fostering kids, these moms have been through it all in their own unique way. Join us in celebrating the moms in our lives this week, starting with these three powerful stories!
This week’s Mentoring Monday radio show featured Kathleen Cooke.
Top Three :: stories that work, love, & pray
- Is Homemaking Part of God’s Economy? – Anna Arnold writes on the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics blog about her investigation into the value a homemaking mother adds to the economy.
- Why I’m Teaching My Son to Be a Quitter – Dr. Anne Bradley writes on the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics about knowing when it’s time to quit and realign.
- How a Business Leader Learned to Give His Company to Christ and Intently Care for His People: Listen to a recent Dallas Theological Seminary podcast highlighting David Ridley, former CEO, Invesco Real Estate, former client of Diane Paddison, and friend of 4word women.
