After a long day, have you ever finally reached the proverbial “end of your rope” and lost your cool?
Every mama has been there. And the truth is, there isn’t a single how-to guide or list of tips or hacks out there that will fulfill and sanctify us like the promises of God.
In today’s episode I’m joined by Kristen Wetherell, author of Humble Moms: How the Work of Christ Sustains the Work of Motherhood – a resource for mothers intended to provide “exactly what she needs in moments of exhaustion: life giving and biblical meditations on Jesus, who humbly serves her, not only in hand, but in heart.”
We talk openly about:
- Feelings of discontentment in the mundane, “everyday” tasks of motherhood
- Evaluating ourselves against worldly ideology
- Guilt after we mess up or lose our temper with our kids
- The idea that we must rely on our own strength
How would knowing that Jesus was coming to your home to serve you today give you comfort?
