Homemaking is the Ultimate Career

Why I’ve Decided to Embrace My “Mom Body”

Our culture is pretty focused on looks.  You really can't escape it.  No matter where we turn, we are sure to run into the idea that the way we look matters.  And I don't quite fit into the acceptable mold. Eight children.  That is how many babies I've given birth to.  And let me tell ya, sometimes I'm… Continue reading Why I’ve Decided to Embrace My “Mom Body”

Life has been full lately.  Very full.  I am reminded on a daily (or even hourly!) basis of the Lord's goodness as I take in my new family of ten.  (Ten!  I still can hardly believe it!)  Along with the fullness of life, sometimes feelings of being overwhelmed set in.  Whenever I feel this way,… Continue reading Encouragement for Moms – Useful Reading

God’s Strength is Enough for Mothers

We recently brought our eighth child home from the hospital.  Sometimes this number is still mind boggling to me.  Do we really have eight children?  (Ahem, yes.  Yes we do.)  We have plunged back into the routine of feedings every two hours, diaper blow outs, and a few hours less sleep.  All of which are… Continue reading God’s Strength is Enough for Mothers
