While you may not have time for a nap, there is a source of encouragement and refreshment you can turn to that never runs dry. On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Hope and Help for Weary Moms,” hear from three moms who have found ways to connect with Jesus, even on the most chaotic days. Deb Weakly, Krystle Porter, and Mari Jo Mast share uplifting advice that will give tired moms some hope.
