Being a Mom is hard work. Thankfully, I went into the task with my eyes wide open. After so many years of waiting to be a Mom, it does make the hard times a bit easier…some days. Other days, it’s still hard work. Here are a variety of links that pertain to the task of motherhood. All encouraged me as I hope they do you!
Stephanie at Six Figures Under posed an interesting question by asking should you pay off debt before you have children? Like her, I believe there is never an ideal time and you will never be fully prepared financially. Still, it is a question each couple needs to consider.
Alison shared about 19 types of Moms and asked which one you are. We are many of them – and through our day, the Mom we are often changes. There are some good resources here with this list!
Lisa-Jo gave encourage for the times you worry your life is too small to qualify for big ministry. I’m sure every Mom can relate to these feelings of inadequacy at times.
Kalyn shared a guest post by Kim on how to afford being a stay-at-home mom – focusing particularly on the transition from working woman to staying home.
Finally, my absolute favorite bit of encouragement came from Jaime. She thoughtful posed the question, should I be doing more? I love, love, love this…especially since I’ve been thinking about this myself recently. Okay, like Jaime, I often think about this. Do you?
Wherever you are, Mom, and whoever you are. Whatever your day (or night) brings, may you remember that God has chosen you to parent your children. Remember that. Cling to that amazing knowledge. And go love your kids – and the task of being Mom!
