We love our families, but we're also consistently struggling to be the women we want to be--which brings up another thought I heard in a recent podcast:
"For struggling is not only the key that unlocks the storehouse to knowledge, but plants a man's feet firmly in the path that leads to great achievement. There is no other way to reach the heights where the victorious assemble."
I'm going to keep these thoughts in my mind today. As I savor the "highs" and try to learn from the "lows," I know the struggle is what makes us strong, and if we don't achieve everything we hoped for today, then we'll just try again tomorrow!
I'm married to my best friend, Eric, and I'm the mother to four MORE of my best friends: Alia, Grace, Ethan, and Spencer. This blog is my little place where I write about the things I love, share my heart about family and motherhood, and show how God strengthens me in the midst of the chaos. Most of my work online is done on my website, Power of Moms. It's a principle-centered gathering place for deliberate mothers of all faiths. (Join us there!) And because motherhood DOES mean so much to me, the fact that I'm losing my own mother to dementia right now is a huge challenge that I'm going through. I write about her often. The point of this blog is to open my life in an honest, meaningful way so that I can connect with others who share common goals. If you care deeply about family, faith, and progress in the midst of opposition, you're welcome to join me by subscribing below. I'm far from perfect, and I struggle every day. But that's okay. We're here to help each other.
