There are no perfect moms and certainly as a woman who wrote a book titled Be The Mom I hope anyone who sees that book will inquire further and learn that my heart behind the book is simply to exhort moms to step into their God given role as a mom with a quiet resolve to do so with intentionality and purpose.
As C.S. Lewis said, “The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only, and that is to support the ultimate career.” And what this mom of teens is passionate…no, actually burdened by the Lord…to share with you is that seeing your role as mom (homemaker) truly is powerful in the lives of your children and in your own life.
My heart is to encourage you, to share what I have learned from others, from my own experience and from the molding hands of the Lord. I have been described by several who have reviewed my book on Amazon as someone with the voice of a “big sister” who just wants to chat, share and encourage.
What you see is what you get, what you read it what you get. Real, flawed and bare for the world to see. What I can tell you is the good parts of my mothering, the parts that have gone well, the areas where I see fruit in my children’s life and in my life – that’s all grace and blessing handed down from a good and perfect God. I do not have it all figured out, but I know the One who does, I know His mercies are new everyday and that He can fill me with joy every day! Despite my circumstances.
There have been circumstances that were very hard in our marriage and I have spent time mothering absent of God’s power as I tried to do it all on my own. What I know is, God has always been the foundation and we have always sought Him and His ways. He has never left or forsaken us.
My man and I have used team work during our twenty five years of marriage, team work that is strong as it is locked tightly in a three stranded cord.
“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12
Rather than seek perfection…admit your imperfection and seek an abiding relationship with the One who is perfection.
