{we Encourage:Motherhood}

{linking up with Jaime @ Call Me Blessed}

Motherhood is a gift.  I truly love being a Momma and couldn't ask for a better job.  However,
"...from everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." {Luke 12:48} So a  lot of days motherhood is just plain hard. Days that feel like they can swallow you whole.  On those days I try my best to press into the Father's word, maybe a girlfriend's shoulder, and sometimes beautiful bits of wisdom pour out of the hearts of the inspiring Mothers I journey with in this blogging community.  Here are some words that have been speaking to me lately.  I hope these womens hearts encourage your Momma heart!  If you have written a post you would like to share, know of an inspiring post, a book that helped you triumph in this area or a scripture that keeps your focus grounded in Him I would LOVE to hear it.

This post  from Grace Laced is rich in truth.

Ann's poetic words challenge me always.

My friend, Kat's journey to motherhood is powerful!  One of my favorite posts is here, but really her blog is pretty amazing, devoted to being the Mother God has called each of us to be.

Danielle, this girl is amazing, her heart is simply beautiful. She wrote this post, and it resonated with me to the core.

Hardest job EVER. But so worth it. This was a good, but rough summer on my motherhood ego. Thanks for the encouragement!

I love when we moms put down our guards and talk authentically about how hard parenting is! I write about parenting on my blog often. Here is one of my favorite posts: http://www.angelhaynes.com/2011/04/job-well-done.html I would love your thoughts. :)

Thank you for being real. Motherhood is a wonderful journey, but not an easy one! I have recently started a blog, and find that what comes easiest to write about is being a mother, failing in doing so, and finding His grace to cover me. So thankful that we are not alone in this journey; He is right beside us.
Because of Jesus,
