MOMcon Session 4

By: Shauna Niequist

Community/fellowship/friendship
- The way we walk together through Christ.

Words are really important. 
Friends make you brave. 
When your scared, you do it shoulder to shoulder with your friends!

YOU ARE NOT ALONE! No friend is alone... no mom alone!

Your a masterpiece... - Ephesians 2:10

Choose a few people to go extremely deep with your friendships. You can either connect or compare. You can not do both!

You have to appreciate who you are and what you have. Everything we have has been given to us from God. Quit worrying about what other's have and focus on your own life. Stay in your lane. 

THE GRASS IS GREENER WHERE YOU WATER IT!!!

You don't need to compare or compete. Water your own garden and watch it grow. Focus on you and your family. It may not be perfect, but it is YOURS! And God has given it to you. 

God made you for a purpose. This is your life and you will miss it if you don't connect but instead compare. Use technology to connect instead of compare. The hard times you are going through, connect with your friends not Facebook!

All the little details don't matter. Sometimes people need you to just be there for them instead of all the little details. BE THERE! Be with them!


INVEST IN YOUR RELATIONSHIPS!

Sometimes it takes time and set expectations. When there is conflict and confession you are getting deeper. It's normal. It's an opportunity to grow in that life. 

Don't ever be afraid of conflict. Be afraid of NO conflict. Handle conflict in private and at the moment it happens. 

Friendship teaches us how we should treat ourself. Friendship grabs you by the hand and reminds you that you are loved. 

Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness, 
will we discover the infinite power of our light!
