Anxiety and depression are rampant in our culture today, particularly among the rising generation. But while life can be hard, it’s critical not to think of things that are difficult as necessarily being bad.

Halberstadt, a homeschooling mom to 11 children, including two sets of twins, explains the importance of not letting our emotions rule our behavior in any pursuit, from raising kids, to going to school, to doing our jobs. When we lean into God during times that challenge us, we find wisdom, courage, and peace. To learn more about Halberstadt, visit her website: MIsforMama.net.
