When it comes to marriage and raising kids, survival is not an option. You should want to do more than just survive. You should thrive in your role as wife and mom.
Since becoming a wife and mother I have been stretched beyond what I thought I was capable. My patience, faith and depth of grace has been tested. There have been times when I’ve wanted to just throw in the towel, but my life that is wrapped up in Christ won’t allow it.
When I find myself floundering around, lost and unsure how to get through the challenges of life God always and I mean ALWAYS calls my name.
When my heart is aching after a disagreement with my husband and when I’m guilt ridden after losing it with my kids, He calls my name.
In the presence of the King is where I find grace and restoration and it’s where you’ll find yours too.
A perfect family doesn’t mean that there aren’t struggles. In fact, there is no such thing as a perfect family. We are all flawed and that will come through in our relationships, but it is what we do despite those flaws that will make an eternal impact.
Your family knows who you are behind closed doors. They know your best and your worst, but my friend don’t get so caught up on trying to convince the world everything is perfect and forget to be transparent with those who live with you daily.
If you are struggling as a mom and your children are old enough for you to have a discussion, talk to them about it. Explain to them why you lose it and how you are working on it. Talk to them about how they can help. The same is true with your husband.
