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!”  […]

Remember the Little Things

| August 4, 2011

Important reminders from my sister Clara:  It’s so easy to rush through them in an effort to get to “the things that matter”. We hurry the kids through breakfast so  we can “get on with the day”; we count down the minutes til naptime so we can “get something done” while they sleep. We tell […]

For Tired Young Mothers of Many

| August 3, 2011

Encouraging words from KimC at Life in a Shoe: Back when we had a lot of Littles and no Bigs, daily life looked very different.  Sometimes it felt a little dark and hopeless.  How could I do everything that I need to do?  How could I be a good wife, a good mother, a good […]

When Thou Liest Down…
