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!

LET’S TALK: PRAYER

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.

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.

There was a Q&A session where an author was explaining the importance of including the human element in innovation. His points immediately made me think of three biblical themes.

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:

DO YOU RESPECT YOUR HUSBAND?

Back when my husband and I got married, my parents gave us a copy of Love and Respect to help us build a strong foundation to our marriage. Of course, with the distractions of life, it took us a while to get around to opening it up. But now, 13 years and 3 kids later, my husband picked it up and started reading through it.

WHERE IS YOUR FOCUS?

As you go about your day, how often do you stop and really focus on the person in front of you? 

It’s so easy for me to be focused on the to-do list in my head that I don’t stop and really listen to what my kids (or other people I’m talking to) are trying to communicate.
