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