Child Training Boot Camp Is About to Begin!

Does parenting ever leave you feeling like you’re in a war zone (and you’re losing the battle)?

Maybe it’s time for some encouragement!  We start “Child Training Boot Camp” on Thursday, February 1 and I would love for you to join us! Even if you’ve done the study before, the refresher will be a good reminder of things that are all too easy to forget while we’re in the trenches!  We’ll be looking at common parenting challenges — disobedience, complaining, arguing, etc. — and how to deal with those challenges in a God-honoring way (in our children, and in ourselves 🙂. )

Please note: This study will be posting on our new site!

For those of you who aren’t members of, you have several options for still joining us for this study:


Look for the “30 Days Child Training Boot Camp” posts from the archives here (in the side bar) and copy or download them before the study comes down off the blog this week. (They will no longer be available here after this week.) Then you can follow along and still discuss the study with others on the Busy Mamas Facebook group page.


If you don’t want to mess with all the work of copying, you can buy the “Child Training Boot Camp” eBook ($6) or the print edition ($10) from Doorposts. (The lesson numbering in the book will be a bit different than the numbering on Mamas Refill, so you’ll have to do a bit of adapting, if you want to follow along with us day by day.)


Take advantage of the discount code “bootcamp1” to save $5 while you invest in a year’s worth of studies on Mama’s Refill. The subscription gives you access to almost twenty different studies, plus the three additional new studies we will do together during 2018, plus additional mini-studies that we will continue to add throughout the year, plus  a bunch of bonus resources to go along with the studies. (New Busy Mamas Bible studies will all be posting on Mama’s Refill in the future.)

The discount code “bootcamp1” is good through February 4, 2018.

  1. So, the Busy Mamas bible studies will no longer be free and just come straight to my inbox??? Now I have to be a paid member?

  2. Yes, I will still post here occasionally, but all the new Busy Mamas Bible studies will now be on our subscription site, This decision came after much prayer, and was made so that I could continue writing the studies. There will be free mini-studies posted intermittently on Instagram under “Doorpostslady.”

  3. Hi,

    I am writing to ask if you’d be interested in selling banner ads (or ads in other form if you have other ideas) on

    I would like to advertise my website: which is a landing page for a browser extension I’ve created so that its users can collect money for effective, research-backed charities while shopping online (with no extra costs for them). For every $4.85 raised for Against Malaria Foundation two people are protected from malaria (via bed nets) and for every $1.19 raised for Schistosomiasis Control Initiative one child gets cured from parasites. It works with over 1000 shops including eBay, Aliexpress, Etsy, Microsoft.
