Motherhood is hard. Having four boys in such a short period of time is down right ridiculous. The needs are great. The sacrifices are many. Because of all the comforts and conveniences I’ve give up being a mom, I cling to my rights. I stubbornly demand to remain at the center of my life.
So, on a daily basis mothering four boys reveals my self-centeredness. All my “issues” boil down to one heart condition: pride.
Like Spurgeon said, “You can either choose to be humble, or be humbled.”
Motherhood is more about the change in me than in my boys.
This blog chronicles my messy journey of “relentlessly replacing ‘me’ with ‘He'”. Sharing the daily struggle of remaining God-centered while mothering four wild-at-heart, energetic and often stubborn boys.
God has a big plan. I am one player in that plan. At this point in my life He has called me to love & train four boys. Before long they will be men & God will use each of them uniquely. My hope is too look back fondly at these years, knowing I was faithful to serve and love my family…despite all the mistakes & chaos!
