Motherhood is hard. Fun. Stressful. Jubilant. Tiring. Encouraging. Messy. Frustrating. Heartbreaking. And so worth it!!!
But sometimes, you, me...WE ALL need encouragement!
So I will do my best to encourage you as I encourage myself to become not just a good, mother, but a Godly mother.
Here are some links about mothering that I love and have been helpful to me.
I am adding more later. So stay tuned.

I love this Chinese proverb. I wonder when it was created? A proverb sounds old, but this proverb doesn't sound old to me, although it certainly speaks the truth. It sounds up to date and real doesn't it! The point is, make time for conversation at the dinner table. It is so worth it!
There's no doubt about it, red lights in addition to a long tiring momma day can be frustrating. But they don't have to be! You can use them to make time for praise!
Here are some things to praise God for:
Sovereignty (His ability to be in control of all things),
Blessings He has given you in your life,
And the list goes on!
So get your praise on today!
Most families attend church twice a month. But what is this really teaching our children? It's teaching them that church is something that they don't have to be committed to week in and week out. It's modeling for them that Sundays have other options.
A relationship with Jesus is what we want our children to seek after more than church attendance, but going to church really does show a commitment. If you attend every baseball game (even when you don't feel good), you are showing your child, that you are committed to the team, to finishing what you start. So why can't most families do this with church?
What can a family do that would make more of an impact on their children?
Make attending church a priority.
Take baby steps to be in church three Sundays out of the month to making it every Sunday you are in church.
Get involved in serving in areas where your children are.
Talk about what you learn at church on Sunday afternoons.
Make a choice that will have impact on your children. Get them in church.
