Being a mother can be draining at times – and yet full of so much goodness. We all have those times, though, when we feel that we have nothing left to give. This week, I was excited to read Joy’s post where she shared about her renewed vision for motherhood.
Joy shared about a book she read recently that inspired her. The author is a well-known missionary who many of us have heard of, I’m sure. I’ve been blessed by other works from this same author who challenges our faith, our womanhood, our marriages and our motherhood.
I was struck by this quote:
“The process of shaping the child…shapes also the mother herself.”
Wow! That’s so true, isn’t it? As we work to help our children grow and develop in faith, it changes us, too. It drives us to our knees and makes us long to learn more of our heavenly Father as we strive to parent our children in a godly manner.
Take some time to read Joy’s post and be blessed by the encouragement she shares!
