Here goes – first blog post! A task that I have put off for literally years. I have been on a Real Life Mom journey since September 2011, and with every Bible Study I lead, I realize how much we all truly need to know the love of Jesus. Being real isn’t the easy road, but it is the avenue that provides the best route of freedom. I have talked to friends, sought counsel from other bloggers, searched a billion websites for ideas, and four years later I am getting around to finally writing. Why do we put off the things we know will make us feel better (ex. exercise, healthy eating, time in God’s Word)? In the never ending pursuit of the answer to that question, I decided that I have to be the one to make that decision.
Real Life Moms is truly a place for Moms to share real life and lean more on Jesus to balance their crazy wonderful lives. We have to enjoy where we are on the way to where we are going. Motherhood is such a blessed opportunity, don’t ever forget – you get to… – you get to go to baseball games; you get to drive three hungry girls to dance class; you get to tuck them in at bedtime; you get to bring them to church. In the midst of our mundane tasks, we have a tendency to forget all the blessings of real life.
Moms, my encouragement for you is to embrace your place – love the life YOU live! I am excited to start this journey, and the opportunity to provide moms with spiritual encouragement. I am not perfect, and do not have all the answers, but I am so thankful that I serve a God who does. “When Christ who is your real life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all His glory. (Colossians 3:4) NLT.
