I'd like to become a better mother.

Saying that sounds kind of ridiculous. I'm hearing you say, “Duh! Don't we all.”

But in all seriousness, the role of mother is humbling. Really humbling.

The kind of adults these children become largely rests on me. And that scares me sometimes. I know myself, and I'm not wonderful! But God entrusted these children to me, so I trust that He knows what He is doing!

This year I will be writing a series about becoming a better mother. It won't all be sage advice, but it will include what I am learning and how that affects my family in a practical way. I'd like to include some guest posts from more seasoned mothers too.

Before we begin this series, you might enjoy reading some of these wonderful posts and blogs that have encouraged and motivated me:

10 Keys to Patient Motherhood – by Kat of Inspired to Action (posting at Passionate Homemaking)

What Mother Must Sacrifice – by Ann Voskamp. This is excellent stuff!

I was a better mother before the internet – by Elizabeth Foss (found this one through Sarah Mae's twitter stream.  She's always sharing great links).

Motherhood tips – by Renee Ellison. This is just one in a series. If you enjoy her tips you may like to read the rest of the series. I think there are 11 posts in all.

I Take Joy – This link will take you to Sally Clarkson's blog. It is one of the places online that I frequently read and nod my head saying, “This is So good.” Very encouraging and practical.

Inspired to Action – Another blog I enjoy and feel empowered by. Kat really makes you feel important and puts a fire in your belly to be the best mom you can be!

I'm always looking for Mom blogs that truly encourage and inspire. What are some of your favorites?

  1. Thank you for providing us practical tools and some great websites. I am very much looking forward to your series. I don’t have any different sites than the one you mentioned, but something that has helped me is setting up a class at church for young mothers where each week is taught by a different seasoned mom on a different topic relating to marriage or raising kids the way God had in mind. I have learned so much.

    1. That class at church is an awesome idea Abbie! Especially since so many if us go into motherhood with very little know-how. If a class wasn’t possible, even a regularl get-together (tea or dinner or something) where young moms could ask questions of the older women, would be excellent.

      You’ve got my brain going now 🙂
