10 Truths for Moms – Crossway.org
These are ten truths for moms like me to cling to on our difficult days. To reassure us of God’s love. To encourage us that he is at work in our trials. To remind us of what the Bible says is true when our feelings and circumstances and the lies in our heads tempt us to think and believe otherwise.
Real Moms Creating In The Margins – Simone Griffin
“I used to be very focused on end products—like writing an article and seeing it published on a faith or motherhood blog. Currently, I’m learning to be content with something as simple as jotting down notes in my phone to capture the thoughts, words and moments I don’t want to forget. Some of the notes haven’t formed a coherent thought for a blog or newsletter (and maybe they never will). But I always encourage others to celebrate small successes, so I’m trying to apply that advice to my own life.“

Sisters, You Have Permission to Lead an Ordinary Life – TGC
“A hope anchored in heaven secures our faithfulness on earth. This life is simply a journey; it doesn’t really matter if it’s ordinary. Don’t buy the lie that your life only matters if your name is known, you have lots of followers, or you do amazing things.“
Valor – Christy Nockels
When God Unfolds His Will in Pieces – Tim Challies
“Whether our path leads through depths of pain or heights of joy, we can have confidence that God is dispensing no evil thing. Whether our path leads in just one direction or forks into many possibilities, we can be sure that the God who told exactly how many rings must fasten each curtain is the very same God who will dispense the wisdom we need to discern whether it’s best to stay or return, to accept or decline, to press on or turn back.”

Why I Write – Miranda Peebles
“I write to slow down. To relish in the way the sunlight pools into the living room in the late afternoon, highlighting my three favorite people that I am grateful to call my family. I write because I have a hard time letting go of all the things that make up this life. I write because I am alive.” Me too!
