From Overwhelmed to Focused: Crafting a Family Mission

Comment

There’s nothing wimpy about being a mom. It takes work: hard work. The proverbial woman is described as a woman who “sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.” In short, she is a woman who is clothed in strength and boldness for the work set before her. As a mom, you know this already. It is hard work! When I first became a mom, I had no idea what I was doing: I just did it. Sound familiar? Many of us just think that once that baby is born I will be SUPER-MOM!!  And for a while we even tend to think we are… *ahem.  Then our child gets older, and we have more children.  We begin to feel overwhelmed, stretched, and exhausted. In the meantime, we have acquired many other responsibilities in our lives, and our world is over-crowded, with every minute of every day accounted for. The joy of motherhood begins to feel like the job of motherhood. 

Join me as I share more on going from overwhelmed to focused as a mom and crafting a family mission at I Take Joy.

See you over there!

Blessings,

Ruth :)
