When You Need Grace to Make Chicken Salad

| June 26, 2014

Words of  wisdom from Bambi Moore at In the Nursery of the Nation: These are the Calgon moments of motherhood. The rock tumbler as one mom called it. We start to smash into each other and painfully get our rough edges knocked off. The surprise of it is like being in the wave pool at […]

Raising a Generation of Wimpy and Selfish Women

| June 24, 2014

From Kathy Brodock at Teaching Good Things: Our hearts are easily deceived. Our hearts are selfish and want only to be happy… in love with life. We want a taste of heaven here on earth and we will do what we need to to get it. We will even pick our favorite Bible verses to […]

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 […]

Motherhood and the Paradox of Dying to Live

| January 15, 2014

Don’t miss this powerful post from Bambi at In the Nursery of the Nation: Motherhood is work many times.  But work isn’t some terrible Christian duty we can’t enjoy.  It is our duty but when we empty ourselves for others, the Lord fills us up…with replenishments of strength, joy, creativity and more.  That way we have it to give all over again…to which […]

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 […]

Ouch… a Painful Look in the Mirror

| October 24, 2011

A convicting read over at Raising Homemakers: What is my own attitude telling them that I really believe at this moment? That my Jesus isn’t big enough to calm the storm in my own heart, to empower me with self-control to hold my tongue and watch my temper? That being interrupted to have to train and discipline […]

Quote of the Week ~ Oct. 21, 2011

| October 21, 2011

“‎As He is, so are we also in this world.” You must take the manger, or you shall never take the throne; you must have the cross, or you shall never wear the crown; you must be despised and rejected, or you shall never be accepted and crowned; you must wade through the mire, or […]

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 […]

Motherhood Is a Calling (And Where Your Children Rank)

| July 14, 2011

 A must read. This beautful and powerful post from Rachel Jankovic  reminds us that in dying, we truly live: But a Christian should have a different paradigm. We should run to to the cross. To death. So lay down your hopes. Lay down your future. Lay down your petty annoyances. Lay down your desire to be […]

The Royalty of God

| July 14, 2011

From Jess at Making Home, a wonderful reminder of the servanthood of our Saviour and the example He set for us: A King had sent His Son to save the peasants, and not only that– that Son took “the form of a servant”. Christ– the Messiah, the hoped-for King– took the role of a humble […]
