Key Points from this Episode:

  • It takes time to find your confidence as a mother and find your stride.
  • Focus on what things do look like, not what you expect them to look like.
  • In hindsight, we will get to see that what God has planned for us is way cooler than anything we could have planned.
  • Connect to the Lord any where, any time you can. It doesn’t have to be at 6 am before the kids are awake. Allow the Lord to seep in all throughout our days.
  • Structure and boundaries can give us the freedom to have more fun because the kids know what to expect.
  • What we do at home should mimic what we do in public. Being respectful of property and boundaries within our homes sets us up to be enjoyable to others when we are our in public.
  • Take time to look at the good that comes from the challenges. Sharing rooms for kids can be hard, but there is a special bond that comes from sharing.
  • Remember that as you are raising children, you are actually raising adults. One day, that 7 year old boy is going to be in his 20s and fall in love and will need to know how to treat a girl respectfully.
  • Get to know your “Power Hours” and know how to cut them off. It’s okay if you don’t get up before the kids in the morning. Know when you can get stuff done and utilize that time frame.
  • Know who you are and who you want to be in order to qualify your yeses and nos.

Patreon is the place where we can come together as mothers and intentionally cultivate growth together. Each month you can gain access to printable worksheets that go along with topics in the podcast to help us slow down and make lasting change – not just be inspired for a few days and then move on. These worksheets are what I’m personally working on and talking about with my closest friends – and I want YOU to join us!

Cultivate your growth intentionally with us through two worksheets a month, a online community, and a monthly group video call to share our “big wins” and things we are still working on.
