In a world with so many influences and so many opinions, there are often moments when you have to just forgo all the hype and go to the source. No telling all to friends, no asking for help from professionals but getting back to the center of it all.
As a Christian mother trying to make my way in society it can be easy to lose sight of that. Often times we are trying to build careers and looking for approval of our work or making personal decisions that need validation but amidst all that remembering where our true strength lies is so important.
So, I put together a short list of bible verses for moms. These are scriptures that I love and can quickly recall when I need a dose of encouragement.
