As a reformed perfectionist, I’ve had to catch myself in the midst of a day to remember that things won’t always go my way in this life as MOM. I need to be open to what God wants to teach me through my children and my circumstances.
It’s not always what I wanted or expected!
Years ago I determined that I wanted to enjoy this life as much as possible, even if it was hard. I’d look at snapshots of my children and remember that day or week or season and realize I’d been far too crabby in that moment to fully appreciate the gifts God had given me, my children at the top of the list.
On the Road to Joyful Motherhood is a 31-day devotional to redirect our hearts, minds, and hands to this glorious calling of motherhood.
