From One Busy Mom to Another
Hope and Encouragement for busy moms
Being Mom is is hard! I’ve always felt like an okay mom, but the pandemic gave me a chance to see how I can be mighty, and that I can’t do it all on my own. I’m sharing things I’ve learned in the hopes it can help you, too!
God’s been talking to me about prayer recently. Everywhere I turn, there’s yet another reminder that I need to set aside time in my day to talk to Him.
MY DEEPEST DESIRE
When you think about it, what are some of your deepest desires? In all honesty the main thing that came to mind is the desire to have a close mom friend.
DEAR NEW MOM
You’re not alone. Your baby has shown you a new level of love, but becoming Mom is HARD–exhausting in a way you never thought possible.

GETTING MY GROOVE ON: THE POWER OF MUSIC
Here’s something I’ve been re-learning recently: music is powerful.
God gave it to us. It’s a way to express joy, sadness, fun, grief, silliness, stories, and love. It transports us back to other season of our lives and helps us see how much we’ve grown from where we are now.
TRYING TO MAKE LIFE-GIVING CHOICES
I’ve been thinking about my choices lately. Do they reflect what I say is important to me? What do they show as important to those around me? What examples are they setting for my kids?

This started as some thoughts from Thanksgiving, but as I wrote them down, they kept expanding. I feel so grateful for what God has done in my life; it’s more than I asked for, more than I could have imagined, and more than I deserve.
BIBLICAL WISDOM IN UNEXPECTED PLACES
You never know when God is going to point something biblical out to you. For me, it recently happened at a strategic communications conference I went to for work.
APPRECIATING THIS SEASON OF LIFE
Sometimes I miss the past.
I’ve said it for years and keep being reminded of it: every season seems to have its good parts and its challenges. And as I’m moving into a new season, I’m reminded of 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
DISCIPLESHIP: SAYING YES MEANS SAYING NO
Sometimes I really don’t like my limitations. I want to do everything I want to do, and I don’t want limitations like the number of hours in the day getting in my way. It’s like I think that if I want something enough, it won’t take any time at all.
I’ve been thinking about this lately while ruminating on what Duffy Robbins said this year at Mount Hermon:
Discipleship is a magnificent ‘yes’ wrapped up in significant ‘no’s.
