Mama Nibbles: Motherhood Is a Calling

Motherhood Is a Calling


I hope this post blesses you as much as it has me. I read this post today and identified with it so much. I love my children, they are my biggest blessing.

"When my little girl told me, “Your hands are full!” I was so thankful that she already knew what my answer would be. It was the same one that I always gave: “Yes they are—full of good things!”




"Live the gospel in the things that no one sees. Sacrifice for your children in places that only they will know about. Put their value ahead of yours.Grow them up in the clean air of gospel living. Your testimony to the gospel in the little details of your life is more valuable to them than you can imagine. If you tell them the gospel, but live to yourself, they will never believe it. Give your life for theirs every day, joyfully. Lay down pettiness. Lay down fussiness. Lay down resentment about the dishes, about the laundry, about how no one knows how hard you work.
Stop clinging to yourself and cling to the cross. There is more joy and more life and more laughter on the other side of death than you can possibly carry alone."
