Motherhood Is A Calling-Straight Talk To Moms & Why You Matter

Motherhood became my calling when I became a mom. 

 Being a mom can be the most amazing, beautiful and rewarding experience in your life! 

 It is also taxing, challenging, and exhausting. The task of motherhood with all its beauty, doesn’t make it an easy task. 

 It challenges you physically, mentally and emotionally and in ways that you never anticipated. You will be challenged, stretched and grow in ways that you wouldn’t without children. 

 It is a constant juggling act to balance it all and to do it with grace, intention and joy.

Hope For The Exhausted Mama

Hope For The Exhausted Mama

I have been exhausted. Not the kind of exhausted that a quick nap will fix, but a weary, wrung out, emotional, mental and physical exhaustion. 

This mom life is so incredibly beautiful...and so incredibly exhausting.

Motherhood is no joke.

There are days we would much rather stay in bed, then play referee between the squabbling siblings, tackling the endless pile of dishes, preparing meals...again, or reminding our child to do their chore for the 100thtime that week.

All of these little stresses can accumulate into the prefect recipe for an overwhelmed and exhausted mama.

Here’s why you should give it up too.

I have a question for you: How are we, as moms, supposed to “do it all”, and, what does that even mean ?

I've come to understand “do it all” = Supermom.  

But here’s the thing; Supermom doesn’t really exist, and if she did, she’d be exhausted!

Even though Supermom is not reality, great moms are and they do exist. And great mom’s, equal super moms!
