We all get there.

Some of us earlier than others. Some of us don’t want to admit it because we are Type A personalities. (Finger pointing at self)

Maybe we are afraid of failure. Maybe we are afraid to admit we are wrong…

or that we were wrong.

Or we just don’t want to ask for help…a little pride sneaks into our hearts.

I sincerely believe that for me it was as I matured chronologically and spiritually. It was surrender really. It is a daily surrender for me. And also the realization that I couldn’t do this without somebody who had went before me.

“Mothering” is a tough job.

When I was a young mom we did not have blogs. We did not have all the “answers” presented by those that knew more. We had each other. We had older moms guiding us, meeting with us and praying with us.

I don’t see much of that today. I cannot help but wonder if moms feel that they already have the answers, or that they don’t have time to even seek out mentoring….I truly believe it is the latter…our busy world keeps us from so much wisdom.

I do believe that the “blogs” of today serve a bit as mentoring, but I still believe that the old fashioned type of mentoring~one on one might be more helpful. Moms need to know that they are not alone. Moms need each other. Moms need advice from those that have been there.

“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I am the one who helps you.’” – Isaiah 41:13

My mentor imparted spiritual wisdom into my life once a week at least.  We met and talked a lot.  Many times her words just confirmed what the Father had been showing me.  The Lord will use those women He puts in our lives to help us, I have no doubt.

I learned, like she did and her mentor before her that….no one ever has all the answers. You will make mistakes, you will fail. Children will slip, fall and disappoint you and themselves. But it is ok.

I encourage you Mom to seek out a mentor, she may be just waiting to be asked….

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 59 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 43 years, married 40 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~

Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
