The REAL work of Motherhood {Book Club: Chapter 9}

Comment

I might be a stay at home mom ... but I work hard.

Sometimes, too hard. Oh, not at cooking and cleaning necessarily--those things I work at, and most of the time my work ... well, it works. If I clean something, it's clean ... at least for a few minutes. And if I cook a meal, we'll all be full ... at least until someone remembers I bought cookie dough ice cream at the grocery store.

It's the other kind of work that can wear me down, overwhelm me, make me want to hide under covers some mornings...

Misty Krasawski is hopelessly flawed but eternally optimistic, because God has promised to be the Author and Finisher of her faith! She is also wife to Rob, mama to eight precious children and two beautiful daughters-in-law, and spends all her free time trying to avoid the laundry by reading classic books, painting with watercolors, lighting too many candles, baking copious amounts of cookies, and studying as much theology as she can lay her hands on. She's currently pursuing a degree through Colorado Christian University and is a regular contributor to both The Better Mom and For the Family, and also occasionally pours her heart out at www.mistykrasawski.com and the brand-new www.itsabeautifullife.org. She loves encouraging people to chase the dreams God has placed in their hearts, preferably over steaming cups of tea and coffee and probably something chocolate.
