I love spending time with a group of moms to share, listen, and encourage. A few months ago, I began to release a set of videos that I made just for you. I share personal stories, hard lessons, and God’s sustaining Word. So far, 10 are available on this website and through YouTube. The last 2 will post this summer. The topic is “The Will: God’s, Ours, and the Child’s.” Each segment is about 15 minutes.
When my children were little, finding “me time” was hard. Besides my brief crack-of-dawn quiet time, “me time” meant babies and toddlers were napping or they were old enough to attend a morning class a couple of days a week. Many times I gave this precious time to things that I felt needed to get done. When I gave the time to myself for personal growth and encouragement, I felt refreshed and strengthened–like I was moving forward.
As the kids grew older, more hours became available to me, but I gave them to responsibilities and new commitments. Nothing wrong with those, but momma-friends, we need time for our self. We need space to inhale and exhale s-l-o-w-l-y. Personal growth and encouragement energize our weary perspective and inspire us to move forward.
I’m inviting you to join me and make your way through the video (or audio) series. Whether your children are grown, teens or toddlers, I think you’ll be encouraged–and challenged a bit. Grab a cup of coffee, fold laundry if you must, take a brisk walk, or listen in your car as you run an errand or wait for a child. Invite a few friends to join you and talk afterwards. If your children are grown, you may know younger moms who would love to have someone like you to discuss the video with them, so they can share their thoughts or struggles.
So, from me to you–Enjoy!
