It Is Important For You To Be Here
I am so honored to be a collaborator at For the Family. Here is my most recent article.
Being a mother is amazingly rewarding, but it can also be hard, and those moments can sneak up on you. My trial of faith happened at church, of all places. Not too surprisingly, this also happened to be one of the most rewarding parenting experiences I have ever had.
I have always loved going to church, so much so that I took my firstborn to church 24 hours after he was born. The more experienced mother in me now laughs at how overzealous I was.
For my second child, I took a little more time off. When I went back, things were a bit more challenging than I had expected. I now had two children under 3, and my husband was in a leadership role, which left me sitting alone with a very active two-year old and an infant. Since sitting quietly was not always possible, I would spend much of my church time in the mother’s room with one, two, or three of us crying.
