Being a child of God is like mothering and wifeing a huge part of who I am, and in this category you will find, reviews of books I love, and some of my thoughts and feelings encountered on this walk. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do writing them!
Pregnancy is one of the most auspicious times in a woman’s life. From the moment you receive two lines on that pregnancy test, you have landed on planet mom and are changed forever! Expectant Blessings, is a book written with this in mind. When I found out I was pregnant with Emilie I was a young impressionable 19 year old, (5 things I wish I knew as a young mother) I had already made up my mind that I would not be having children. I wasn’t ready for that commitment. Nor the responsibility. But God had other plans.
I think up until you become a mother yourself, you do not begin to grasp the weight of what the role actually is. You can imagine, and you can love but you can’t understand the depth of her heart until you truly feel it yourself. For Mother’s Day this year why not bless your mom with some beautifully crafted heartfelt scripture inscribed goodies from Christian Art Gifts? The “To Mom with Love Collection” is absolutely beautiful in its floral pink detailed design.
I am a cry-er. Literally, that person who cries when happy, sad, anxious, angry… I just cry. I’ve been called a cry baby, over sensitive and over empathetic, I’ve accepted them. Most times my tear ducts just have a will of their own and I honestly can’t help it. This happens to me so much in church during praise and worship! I will be standing there singing and my eyes will just start doing their thing. This Sunday was no different except this time, I was proud of it.
