"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

My Mommy Minute: October 10

Hi friend,
This is one of those weeks that every single one of these are so so good. No particular order, but each is worth your time.  Some longer than others, all rich with wisdom and encouragement.  Enjoy!

"To be a mother is by no means second class.  Men may have the authority in the home, but the women have the influence.  The mother, more than the father, is the one who molds and shapes those little lives from day one."
-John MacArthur

When Motherhood Drains Your Happiness by Carolyn Mahaney at GirlTalk
"But if we’ve become resentful of the demands of motherhood, discouraged and depressed in our routine, irritated and impatient with our children, chances are, we’ve lost sight of our God-given purpose as a mother."

The Inconvenience of Motherhood by Amanda Walker at The Aquila Report
"But this shaping can only happen as we give over our rights to ourselves and allow God the freedom to shape us."

Part 1 and Part 2 were a previous My Mommy Minute post in case you missed them!

Remember, You Are Not Managing an Inconvenience, You Are Raising a Human Being by Rachel Miller at Daughter of the Reformation
"Exactly when did they go from precious blessings entrusted to me by God to small, loud, challenging things sent by God to interrupt my day?"
