It All Starts With Us – Choices in Motherhood with Gladys Childs

I had a thought-provoking conversation with Gladys Child about the impact of the choices we make on our children. She shares from her experiences growing up how they impacted her choices as a mom to her now teenage son. We talk about everything from handling tantrums to teenage drivers.

More about Gladys:

Dr. Gladys Childs is an author, speaker, religion professor, pastor’s wife, and mom helping others be F.R.E.E. to Thrive© for the abundant life God has for them. She serves as Chaplain at Texas Wesleyan University and the Women’s Director at LifePoint Fellowship. She brings 25 years of experience and knowledge to her ministry.

Gladys is frequently called authentic, witty, and candid as she shares her journey through life’s ups and downs. Her passion is meeting people at the intersection of faith and life’s difficulties. No stranger to heartache herself, she grew up in a non-church-going family with an alcoholic mother and is a trauma survivor.

Gladys is married to a pastor, and they have one son, Scott, who is 16.

Hello, friend!

I’m so glad you stopped by!

I know life can be crazy sometimes, and it is my prayer that you find comfort, encouragement and hope here.

If we could get together in person I would offer you a cup of coffee and a cookie while we chat in our living room. There is a strong chance we would hear “Bruh” about 6,000 times in the background while my teenage sons battle it out in a video game! But since time and space aren’t always on our side, please grab a free resource, subscribe to my monthly newsletter, or enjoy clicking through some of my blog posts.

I would also love to connect with you on social media! You can follow me at the links below!
