Encouraging Quotes For Biblical Motherhood

I am honoured to be a mom. 

To be a wife and a mom were my greatest desires as a child and young woman. 

The example that was set for me was that the role of a mother was a high calling and not to be taken lightly. 

Motherhood is a mixture of beauty, awe and chaos. We are shaping future generations, which is a privilege and a great responsibility.

Being a mother is a blessing, but it can also be discouraging, frustrating and mundane at times. I love coming across quotes that encourage me in the trenches of motherhood and I thought I would share some of my favourite motherhood quotes with you.
