Being a Mother Who Tries: Notes on Mother’s Day 2024

End Blame Culture: 2 Reminders to Help You Stop Playing the Blame Game

Casting blame on other people can be a sign you’ve made them an idol in your life. An idol is defined as “an object of extreme devotion” and “a false god.” People and situations can become idols if you attribute the cause of your situations and feelings to them. Of course, we do not live in a victimless world. But unfortunately, to find comfort in blame is to surrender your own control and the very possible future of overcoming.

Reflections on Motherhood in Women’s History Month

Understand that motherhood is an adventure. It’s a journey, and no advice for new parents could articulate every part of it. Even if you’re not a parent, think about your own mother or any parent you’ve met in your life. As you consider the expectations of a mother and just a fraction of the challenges she may encounter, you can find some drops of wisdom to apply to your own life. Some answer the calling of motherhood equipped, informed, educated, or skillful. Some come unprepared. Either way, grace should not be withheld from anyone.

Reorganizing Your Life: Making Room for What Matters (Part 2)

If you’ve ever been a diet, you know simply skipping dessert is not enough to see a change reflected on the scale. By the same token, you can end a toxic relationship, but if your thinking is the same, what’s to stop you from entering a similar situation with a different person? Last month, we discussed letting go of “normal” in order to embrace discomfort and simple living, but I want to challenge you further.

Declutter Your Life: Making Room for What Matters

Women of God, it is time to let go of all the trouble you carry. You are not baggage claim! Oftentimes, we hold on to past expectations, past hurt, or past mindsets because we desire something that is no longer available to us. This is harmful, even if you believe you’re an expert at concealing your emotional baggage. Refusing to make room for what matters so as to declutter your life prevents the miraculous from occurring
