#6: Speak Life - The Power of the Tongue

Season #1

Welcome back to the Elevate Motherhood Podcast!

In this episode, Courtney shares one of the things that has changed her life in the biggest way – speaking life. The power of our tongue. Speaking words that align with our prayers and our faith. Does it matter what we say? Does God care what we say? Does it matter if we believe He will do what we want Him to do? How do we speak life over our kids and our families? How do we deal with prayers that aren’t answered? Or aren’t answered in the way we wanted? Who do we go to if we feel isolated and anxious? Is hope the antidote to a life of disappointment? Join us in the conversation!
