looking towards Mother’s Day :: encouragement and giveaways

In this week…

I’ve teamed up with some incredible writers to deliver encouragement, community, hope, vision and a reminder of the important work you do as Mom, as a woman tending to her home.

We too are mothers, we are daughters.  We also care for home and family.

We cook meals, wash laundry, care for sick family members, volunteer, and we just get it.

We live right in the trenches of parenting, housekeeping, and doing life with you.

While we understand the eternal rewards of mothering, we know earthly patience and perseverance are also part of the picture.

We can’t lift your physical burdens or solve your mothering or home keeping mysteries, but we want to cheer you on to do it all well.

With awe.

With grace.

So this week I want to celebrate the calling of all homemakers and all mothers out there (stay-at-home, work-at-home, work-outside-the-home, it doesn’t matter!).

May you choose to celebrate the calling God has given you, and feel a fresh surge of His power and purpose directing your steps.

Amen.
