S5Ep49: Birds on a Wire Moms

This week hosts Mike Nawrocki and Sarah Humphrey talk with author Karen Stubbs about her ministry, Birds on a Wire Moms. 

Karen Stubbs is an author, speaker, and mom to four adult children. In 2011, she founded Birds on a Wire Moms, a ministry created to equip women with practical and Biblical truth. Early on in her marriage, Karen’s husband Greg served as a fighter pilot in the Navy. It was during those tough early years, while Greg served overseas during Desert Storm, that Karen grew in her reliance on God and gained a heart for teaching biblical truths to women. Full of practical advice and engaging stories from her own walk with the Lord, Karen Stubbs is passionate about challenging women to live out the truth of God’s Word in their everyday lives.

Birds on a Wire Moms
As moms, we constantly serve our families. We cook, we clean and we spend hours of our life in the carpool line. We stay up at night thinking, praying and, if we’re being honest, worrying
about our children’s well being. Our plates are full and our days are short.

There’s nothing we want more than to love and nurture our children, but we don’t always feel encouraged or equipped to do all that comes with the job. Often times, we feel alone. That’s
why Karen Stubbs created Birds on a Wire in 2011. Birds on a Wire is a ministry that provides Godly, practical advice so you’ll feel celebrated, encouraged and equipped to parent with confidence.

What started as a group of eight moms meeting in Karen’s basement has grown into an international ministry with thousands of moms all over the world. Birds on a Wire supports moms through the weekly podcast, Wire Talk, as well as small group studies available through Right Now Media and live speaking engagements all across the U.S.

Birds on a Wire Moms is for all moms. Moms who work out of the house or in the house. Moms who have a newborn to moms who are empty nesters. No matter where you are in the journey of motherhood, Birds on a Wire Moms is here to encourage and equip you.
