By His Grace

Misty Phillip sits down with Helen Smallbone at the 2022 NRB Convention to discuss her motherhood journey. We talk about her childhood as Pastor’s daughter and how it impacted her faith. Helen shares the remarkable journey of moving from Australia to the United States. We quickly bonded as kindred spirits when she shared how her story of brokenness and dependence on God led to homeschooling and working together as a family. 

We discuss the importance of prayer in their family and God’s faithfulness to provide for their family. We discuss the foundation of this lifestyle that led to the success of Rebecca St. James and For King and Country!

Key Takeaways

“We as a family saw God Work miracles and provide for us in very miraculous ways and lead us step-by-step.” 

“Then challenging times we go through sanctify us.” 

“We started homeschooling before we left Australia…and continued to homeschool the rest of the kids’ lives.”

“God opened opportunities for us to work together as a family.”

“God pushes us to the end of our tether.”

“When we have nothing left to give, we lean in closer to him, and the kids and I initially would get down on the floor together and pray. It really changed their lives.”

“We were always looking for the kid’s skill areas.”
