Dear mom, do you find yourself exhausted at the end of every day, wondering if you’ll ever catch up on your sleep so you have the energy you’ve been dreaming about?
Are you tired of just surviving and would rather be thriving, with joy in your spirit as you mother your children?
Or maybe you have a long to-do list that isn’t getting done and you don’t even have the time to mentally process what needs to happen so that it can be accomplished!
Perhaps you’re afraid to share your struggles, feeling judgment from every turn because you can’t seem to become the “better mom” that every blog, magazine and online article tells you to be?
Maybe you want to teach your children the ways of the Lord but aren’t sure where to start?
Friend, let’s talk :)
I have had all these experiences, questioning my mothering abilities, wondering if my efforts are ever enough. Wanting to do it all, be everything I think that other mothers are. I should know that’s not a realistic view, but it’s where my mind takes me when I think too much.
I’m in the thick of motherhood right now: four busy young children who are my sweetest blessings and my biggest challenges (in a good way)! And as I’ve moved through different moments of being a mom, I’m slowly learning how to work toward the practical goals that help our home be one that my family loves but also how to give myself grace.
I’ll be sharing the truths and strategies I’ve learned along the way. No way do I have it all figured out, but I’m thankful that God is continually teaching me who He is and how He can work through our challenges. So I want to pass that encouragement on to you!
In 31 Days of Hope for Moms, we will be taking a look at some of the common challenges of mothering younger children (disorganization, frustration, depression, behavioral issues and more). We will be seeing what the Bible says about these situations as well as talking about many practical helps for pressing on with joy during this beautiful season of life!
Motherhood does not have to be a joyless endeavor, something you need to escape or just muddle through and cross your fingers, wishing for the best. There is HOPE, dear friends. Let’s embrace it together.
