The Hard Work of Motherhood


The Hard Work of Motherhood

“Motherhood isn’t easy. You have to work really hard.” –Sally Clarkson

When I first heard those words, it’s like a light bulb came on for me. Motherhood IS hard work. All this time I have been trying to make it easier instead of leaning in to the calling God has placed on my life.

Join me as I share about The Hard Work of Motherhood at I Take Joy where I am posting today.
