Today's Guest(s)

Becky Thompson is the author of BeckyThompson.com (formerly Scissortail SILK), a blog that reaches a global audience of millions. Speaking to the often overlooked struggle of balancing life as a wife, mother, and daughter of God, Becky has a captivating way of becoming the voice for women in need of hope, healing, and the Father’s love.

Becky’s candid way of sharing her heart extends an unspoken invitation for women to feel as though they have gained a friend and realize that somewhere there is a woman who feels just as they do. Becky is a recent transplant to Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband, Jared, and their three young children.

EPISODE NOTES

Waking up in the middle of the night to take care of your kids is always stressful. Is it a dirty diaper? Is it a bad dream? Is it that baby is hungry? All these questions run through your head as you make your way over to take care of the baby. And then, while you’re taking care of baby, feeding or comforting, you can make the most of your unexpected awake time by praying or reading a devotional. In this episode, Dr. Meg asked her associate, Lisbeth Keen, to interview Becky Thompson and Susan Pitts.

They are a mother and daughter duo responsible for the Midnight Mom blog as well as the new book Midnight Mom Devotional: 365 Prayers to Put Your Momma Heart to Rest. The book is a great resource for mothers who find themselves awake for various reasons in the middle of the night taking care of the kiddos.

Every prayer can either be directed toward yourself or toward a friend or family member that you know is working through the stresses of raising children. Also in this episode, Dr. Meg will give you her points to ponder that you can start using right away and answers questions from parents who are concerned about the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. If you have a question you want Dr. Meeker to answer in a future episode or on the Meeker Parenting Community page, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and listen to see if your question is featured next!
