In this Mother's Day message, we think of our mothers. We celebrate all the things they did right, and we are grateful. But there are some things mothers cannot do—that only God can do!

Learn to trust God through all of life’s storms and squalls!
Jill Briscoe’s powerful teaching, Weathering the Storms of Life, along with 12 uniquely designed Scripture cards will help you trust God in all life’s storms! 


Some of the most well-known Bible characters had bad days—just as we do. No matter what your struggle may be today—depression, low self-esteem, bitterness, disappointment, anger, jealousy, weariness, even a lost will to live—there is a person in the Bible who felt those exact same feelings. Jill takes us through this familiar story to reveal the Father's heart.

One of the hardest things in life is facing rejection, especially when it comes from someone we love. We, like Leah, might keep striving, struggling, and manipulating to earn acceptance from our loved one. We may feel alone, but God sees and hears what we endure.  In this message, Jill walks us through Leah's struggle with rejection and shows us the God who saw, heard, and loved Leah through it all.

We all get tired sometimes. And sometimes in our tiredness we get to a point where we, like Elijah, say "I’ve had enough, Lord." Where do we go once we've reached that point? How can we find refreshment and get moving again? In this message, Jill uses Elijah's story to teach us that God alone can refresh us just as He did for Elijah.

What does your daily schedule look like? Is it full of errands and events? Sometimes we become workaholics and worriers, filling our days with too many tasks and constant concerns about things we can't control rather than taking time to focus on the most important thing of all. In this message, Jill uses the example of Martha to show us instead how Jesus would want us to fill our time.

Life can be rough. Bad things happen. It's easy to take those bad things and walk down the road of bitterness where our relationships with friends and family suffer. In this message, Jill tells us how Naomi's experiences made her an empty, bitter woman, but she got back on track with the help of her daughter-in-law Ruth and became a full, better woman.

Ever have those prayers that God doesn't seem to be answering? We all have dreams and longings—sometimes they go unfulfilled. We wonder, "Where is God in my pain? Does He even hear me?" In this message, Jill uses the example of Hannah and her desire for a child to teach us that God does indeed hear us.

If someone were to ask you today what your purpose in life is, would you be able to confidently answer? Finding your life’s purpose can be challenging. As Christians, we know our primary calling is to follow Jesus, but how are we supposed to be practically spending our days? In this message, Jill Briscoe reminds you that God has a specific plan for your life—and it’s never too late to figure out what it is. Jesus wants you to join Him on the grand adventure He has in store for your life.

How do you know what love looks like? Maybe you grew up in a household of care and support, and you feel you have a pretty good grasp on the concept. But maybe you’ve experienced some painful relationships, and you really struggle to know what love truly is. In this message, Jill Briscoe points out the beautiful ways you can understand love as it’s described in Scripture. You’ll learn how to receive love from God and others and how to allow Christ to express love through you.

Sometimes life knocks us down. We fail, make mistakes, and fall flat on our face. But while we can’t always keep ourselves from falling, we can control what happens next. In this message, Jill Briscoe shares how when we fall, we have the opportunity to experience restoration through Jesus—but only if we’re willing to stand up again.

Do you see Jesus as your friend? Do you believe He considers you one? Jesus isn’t just a historical figure you can read about. He is your friend, and He desires to have a relationship with you like the closest friendship you could possibly imagine. In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches what it means to know Christ, have Him know you thoroughly, and let Him live His life through you. You’ll learn to see Jesus as your forever best friend and source of life.
