I Signed Up For This

| January 16, 2014

Excellent reminders from Mrs. Gore’s Diary: Motherhood is HARD, yes, but it doesn’t have to be dreary and droopy. Chin up, buttercup. Shoulders back. Turn that frown upside down. Swallow those sorrowful sighs. Choose joy, because even on the hardest days, it is still exactly that: a choice. Laugh at today and all the days to [...]

Unloosed!

| November 17, 2013

A powerful post on motherhood from Rachel Jankovic at Femina: The strongest women in our world today are those who are as a group feeling the weakest. It certainly doesn’t feel like a blow for the kingdom to spend another nine months in a brain fog. It doesn’t feel like we are fighting for the [...]

Worn

| January 29, 2013

For all my fellow mothers in a season of exhaustion – who feel like they can hardly put one foot in front of the other, who are worn “even before the day begins”, who are even more soul weary than they are physically weary, who are walking through trial while caring for the needs of [...]

Fetal Cells Cross Placenta, Stay With Pregnant Mom for Life

| December 14, 2011

Another amazing study on the benefits of pregnancy: According to Krulwich there is increasing evidence that “when a woman has a baby, she gets not just a son or daughter, [but] an army of protective cells – gifts from her children that will stay inside her and defend her for the rest of her life.” [...]

Motherhood is Application

| October 10, 2011

Excellent insight from Rachel Jankovic: The good news is, you don’t need to have been through some elite mother’s training camp to apply the gospel in your life. You need to believe. Trust God, give thanks. Laugh. Believe — and that will feed your children. Rest in God, and your children will learn to. Extend [...]

Calling ALL Older Women

| August 15, 2011

More from Sarah Mae: Older women, we need you! We need you to come alongside us to teach us and to help us. Many women feel like they are drowning – can you lend a hand? Is there a mom of little ones in your church or neighborhood you can help? How about a family [...]

THOSE Mornings…days…weeks…months…

| August 15, 2011

From Sarah Mae at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee It is okay to feel overwhelmed and crazy sometimes, because that’s just life (and life with little ones sure brings out the ugly in this mama’s heart). It’s not okay to act as though they are the problem; my sweet babies who were born with [...]

Encouragement and Exhortation for Young Mothers from an Older Woman

| August 5, 2011

From Michelle at “She Looketh Well” : I suspect you might poo-poo what I am writing to you about because I did for years. I always had to do and do and do. I wasn’t doing enough. I was selfish or lazy. Learning all I have about our health, namely our adrenal glands, I now [...]

Calm in a Storm: How to Stay Peaceful While Childrearing

| August 5, 2011

From Lea Ann Garfias over at LAF: I have not always felt “quiet confidence” in rearing little dynamos.  To the contrary, I was fairly certain my first toddler was destined for juvie.  He began several mornings in a row by shaking his little fist in my face, declaring, “I will not obey you today, Mommy!”  [...]
