Ministry of Motherhood


My prayer as a Mommy...

"Choosing to be a servant-mother means willingly giving up myself, my expectations, and my time to the task of mothering; and choosing to believe that doing so is the best use of my time at the moment. It means that, by faith, I have already made a decision to make myself available in the routine tasks and myriad of interruptions of my daily life because I believe it is God's will for me to serve my family through them."

i try to remind myself of these truths constantly, but they are so hard to grab hold of b/c of my sinful self. =P so glad that the Lord has a better plan for us as mothers than what we would have planned for ourselves!
