Remember before you became a mom, how you thought you would parent and the things you told yourself how your kids would act, etc...??? I recall some of those things and now just laugh at myself. A few things I have learned so far in my parenting journey is we can't parent alone, we need encouragement and support. Mothers also need other mothers alongside of them, that understand and can share with one another. We also need mentors to share wisdom. Most important we need Jesus and the grace that He gives!! For those that haven't heard, coming soon to Marshall County is Moms Connect!! A time for moms to connect with one another and study God’s Word in an encouraging supportive environment.
