mommy mentor.

Titus 2:3-5 " Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled"

Psalm 46:5 " God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her when the morning dawns." 

Proverbs 1:5 " Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance."

I worked and loved caring for  kids ever since I was a little girl. So when I found out I was having my first son I figured I knew all there was to know about raising a child due to my experience. Little did I know that no amount of preparation could prepare me for the reality of what it is like to be a mom. Each mom, baby, and relationship is different and there is no one road map on the best route to ensure raising your child will go smoothly. Between nursing, umbilical cords,asthma, postpartum depression, naps, discipline, manners, safety, and education there is never a shortage of questions I have had on a daily basis. 

This is where having a mommy mentor has been so helpful for me during some hard times.  No amount of google searches and book reading can give you the same type of instruction and love from another mom who has gone before you. I know that there is a thing  as too much advice but that is why it is so essential to have a few women that you can rely on for sound advice. 

In times of desperation, confusion, sadness, and joy I have my core group of moms who I can go to and know that they truly care for me and my family. These women have children and values of that which I look up to and wish to emulate. They handle themselves with grace, class, and patience and their love for Christ and the Gospel shows in how they love their families and others. It is this community of women who have helped me to enjoy this beautiful season of life I am in.

Thank you to all of you who help me when I email,  call, and text you at random hours needing advice and wisdom. Thank you also to all my fellow mom bloggers out there who kindly share their journeys and let me and so many others benefit from all their research and experiences. 

The group of moms who have been by my side have blessed me so much and have made my journey through motherhood so much better. (Jane Gray, Anneke, my Mom, Michelle, Janna, Tami, and many more)
