On Motherhood

I'm continuing to learn about motherhood - how it molds us, challenges us, and makes us more like Jesus - and to accept it as my God-given role in a world that doesn't truly appreciate the significance of motherhood.
"In Gail Godwin’s novel Evensong, one of her characters defines a vocation as 'a job that is always making more of you.' This is the best way I can describe the work of caring for a child, for both the mother and the father. Putting aside your own desires (like a good night’s sleep and an undisturbed cup of morning coffee) to tend to another person is intense enough that if you don’t change — and become more than you were to begin with — you won’t survive."

Join the conversation, glorify the Lord, proclaim his goodness. I'd love it if you did.
