I am first a Christian, second a wife, a mother to four and a writer. I am a pediatric occupational therapist with twenty years of experience. I am also an ordained minister. I began this blog to reach other exhausted mothers who are trying to balance their lives. Being a mother has many beautiful rewards and many heart-wrenching moments. I have found myself frequently wishing that I could carry my children’s crosses through this world instead of watching them struggle under the weight of them. Luke 9:23 states, then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. Jesus stated this plainly each individual person must pick up “their cross” not “a cross” and they must do so daily. As their mother, I must walk the line between uplifting my children through life and allowing them to rise to the occasion independently. Knowing when to do which one is excruciatingly painful at times.
Motherhood is a precious gift that He gives. God believes that mothers deserve protection and that all mothers need to be strengthened. It is my continued prayer that God puts me into a position to strengthen mother’s hearts. God’s callings always seem to require patience, endurance, and a peaceful heart. I believe this next walk in obedience will be no different
