Encouragement for Moms


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. If you would like more information please contact me or check out our facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/150303531830101/ In addition feel free to check out The Mom Initiative http://stephanieshott.com/the-m-o-m-initiative/  who we are affiliated with for some helpful resources and information to encourage and inspire you.
 

“There are no perfect friends, just fellow moms, trying to do their best and discovering there is more joy in doing life together.” – A quote by Jill Savage from her book No More Perfect Moms which we will be discussing during our Bible study time.


Here are a couple encouraging articles for moms I read this week:
