Discipleship & Discipline: Practical Parenting Help for the Desperate Mom
“The Webinar completely refreshed my heart as a mama. With a 4 and 2 year old and one on the way, I needed my soul revived! Sally and Sarah Mae gave so much wisdom, help, support, and love to all us women. They treated us like best friends! The things Sally and Sarah Mae said will forever stick in my heart so I can mother on.”
Ashely, This Southern Girl’s Heart
The Discipleship & Discipline eCourse was originally a live webinar hosted by Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae in the fall of 2013. It is now available as an on-demand video eCourse.
Through the span of four video teachings, Sally and Sarah Mae discuss and talk about the demanding yet wonderful job of parenting. With honesty and wisdom, the two offer encouragement and practical advice to help you to keep on in your mothering.
Day 1: Laying a Foundation of Love (Sally Clarkson)
Observing God as a parent gives us a pattern to follow as we seek the best for our own children. God extends His love, training, and instruction throughout the Bible for the benefit of His children that He loves. In this session we will cover Biblical principles and practical ideas of how to build a winning relationship with your own children so that their heart will be turned towards you as a parent. Understanding Jesus’ motivation with his own disciples lays a foundation for reaching our own children’s hearts.
Day 2: Loving a Wild One (Sarah Mae)
If there is one thing that I get the most emails and comments on it is my precious Caroline, the former “wild one”. I say former because over the last year she has matured into the most delightful little girl. But it took work and time and intention, and in this webinar I will share with you the journey, the ups and downs, and what things have made the biggest impact on my Caroline becoming a genuine delight. If you have a wild one, I’ll show you how to hang in there with grace, nurture change, and genuinely enjoy your child.
Day 3: Heartfelt Discipline, Plus Your Parenting Questions Answered (Sally Clarkson)
Viewing your child from a Biblical perspective will determine how you view the role of discipline in your children’s lives. In this talk, the goals of discipline will be laid out, and practical advice will be given for the different stages of a child’s life. Learning to see each child for the unique design God gave them will free you, as a parent to understand how to reach their heart and motivate them to learn to listen to your instruction and to obey your training. The second half of this Webinar will be dedicated to answering your parenting questions.
Day 4: Dealing with Our Junk So We Can Parent with Clarity (Sarah Mae)
I believe that respecting our children, relating with them, being honest, and treating them as we would like to be treated is foundational for building loving and trusting relationships. However, in order to be able to parent this way, we first need to deal with our junk. In this webinar, I will talk about what hinders our ability to parent in freedom and what steps we can take to become true and whole so we can parent with clarity.
“I walked away from the Discipleship & Discipline Course inspired to be an excellent mom. Not perfect, but excellent – giving my whole heart to the divine work of raising my kids. Instead of seeing this task of raising my (wild!) children as overwhelming and impossible, I now feel encouraged and empowered to be the kind of mom that God has called me to be.”

Here are a few online reviews of the eCourse:
“These studies spoke to different parts of who I am as a mom and even as an individual apart from the mom hat I wear. They spoke right to my heart and even had me in tears at times as I came to realize that I’m not the only one who has felt the way I’ve felt or has parented the way I parent….or has believed the same lie I have. Through this study, I’ve been given tools and access to wisdom as I work to become the mom I’ve been created to be.” Read the whole review here.
“Every time I hear the wisdom these women share, I am encouraged and inspired!
Sally’s gentleness and Sarah’s authenticity comes through clearly, even when sharing challenging material…I loved the course.
The videos weren’t the best quality and most of the time the audio didn’t sync with the video – (think of old foreign films where the lips of the actor didn’t line up with what you were hearing) BUT the content was excellent.” Read the whole review here.
“There’s so much to take away from this course, that I don’t know where to begin…Over the course of 4 webinars, Sally and Sarah Mae share a lot of lessons they’ve learnt while parenting their own children. I love their emphasis on building relationships, acceptance and learning about the heart of our kids. They also share a lot of great advice for parents with difficult children.” Read the whole review here.
