Lately, I have just felt so "motherly". I have always been into being a mother, but there is a whole new contentedness that has fallen on me that I just can't explain. I love my role as "wife and mother". I love being home with them and teaching them the ways of God. I love watching my baby grow and cheering her on for each new accomplishment.
I love it when my hubby does silly things like put his reading glasses on Jacob! He looks so cute "reading" Steve's Bible. I love that Jacob is now in the potty-training process. Normally, I detest this part of parenting, but it has actually been way more relaxing this time around. He is starting to figure it out little by little and wearing his underwear more and more. I will post pictures of our family's traditional "poop party" we have for each kid the first time they poop in the toilet! Exciting stuff! LOL!
I love dressing up my little Lily Pie. She is not only walking, but starting to climb into and onto everything! She gets stuck a lot in the diaper basket!
I love that my kids have great relationships with their all their grandparents. We are blessed to have my dad and stepmom living near us. I love it when they get so excited when they see their Nanas and Papas coming through the door. Even Lily is starting to screech when she sees them. It's just adorable!
Yes, mothering six children is hard work. When I had two children, I never felt this content. I was so miserable. I think I spent most of my time dreaming about how I was going to get away and have my next break. I was overwhelmed and not a very nice person to be around. God has changed me so much in this area. I do enjoy having breaks now and then, but I don't long for them and count the days until they occur. I try to enjoy each day as it comes.
I love all the different stages that my children are in. From growing boys to babies, I get to experience the whole gammet at once! It is challenging, but I have found so much reward in this new found contentedness. I am one blessed lady! I have peace and joy most of the time instead of every once in awhile. I have a good life and I want to praise God for it!
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him. I want to encourage mothers all around the world to hang in there! Motherhood is tough, challenging and gritty. But through Christ's strength and the support of other moms who are in the trenches, I will keep pressing towards the goal to raise Godly children. Please feel free to leave comments. It blesses me so much! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Stay-At-Home mother of six children. We LOVE having a large family. My first love, is Christ and the Words of the Bible. My passion is to teach my children about the Lord. I love to watch my children discover their own faith in God. My husband has been a firefighter for over 20 years and is now an officer. I am very proud of him. I long to be a Titus 2 woman who encourages other women to love their husbands and children and to thrive in their homes, not just survive.
The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
