Motherhood is hard challenging it requires your time, energy, and money you are responsible for tiny humans. As moms we find ourselves in a pile of laundry crying (hands up) because for 9 months we carried this person which took a toll on our bodies and then we encounter sleepless nights and not much help. Don’t get me wrong motherhood is a beautiful thing God chose you to bring this person into the world but let’s talk about you mom.

Have you put your dreams on hold?
Have you become a couch potato?
How had motherhood impacted your life?

What a lot of mothers fail to realize is that God still has work for you to do he’s not through with you yet. Yes newborn babies require a lot of attention but I know some moms out there who in the middle of sleeping babies wrote books. Are you looking for guidance on how to get back to you? First Lady Ruth Langhorn and Michelle Lazurek wrote a devotional teaching moms that self-care is not selfish.

Self care is not selfish. It’s stewardship

My opinion

As moms whether single or married we tend to invest in our children so much we forget about ourselves. Motherhood is about balance because you can’t abandon your kids to pursue your life either. Ruth helps make balancing motherhood easier with her 60 day devotional. What I also like is that at the end of each devotional there are a series of questions to answer for self reflection. Ruth herself has 8 children (I am struggling with 2) so she writes this from not just something she saw but she has lived it.
