Are you a mom who is down in the trenches of motherhood? Are you deeply involved in the day to day stuff that we as moms are all required to face? If so, then I am talking to you!
Sometimes it seems as though the things we have to impress upon our children never seem to end, which is both the great joy and the great challenge of being a mom. At least one of them!
One of the best ways that we can train our children is by living life right alongside them, using real life circumstances as springboards to guide them in learning to embrace those basic life lessons that most, if not all people, learn along the way.
These truths get to the heart of what it means to live intentionally with our kids.
As your kids grow older, your opportunities to train your children in these matters will become quite frequent.
As a mom of nearly 15 years, I can say that at times these are the lessons that make me the most weary. Perhaps it is because these teaching moments happens so frequently, and maybe it is because these are things that I still struggle to apply in my own life at times, but if these lessons that you teach while “down in the trenches” in the everyday-ness of life overwhelm you, know that you are not alone.
This among so many other real life situations are things that I address in my book, A Realistic Action Plan For the Weary Mom: 15 Days of Hope From The Intentional Mom. because they are the things that other young moms told me they struggle with. Sometimes I think it is the reading and writing, character training, Latin, and even cooking skills that are the easy part of being a mom. It’s the life lessons, the coping skills, and the relational skills that can be so exhausting to take on at times.
With older kids, however, I can say that the time you take in pouring into your children in this way will never come back void. As you watch your kids blossom into teens, those life skills, coping skills, and basic skills in independence will resurface in your kids time and time again.
If you are a mom who is feeling like the work never ends, I hear you, and I think every mom can relate to these feelings as well.
We can encourage one another, however, and you can find great hope and encouragement through the words that a panel of seasoned moms shared in A Realistic Action Plan For the Weary Mom: 15 Days of Hope From The Intentional Mom.
