Devotions for Moms: “Mom Life” Week in Photos
An Instagram-ready, picture-perfect mom life does not exist in real life. There is no such thing as a perfect mom. There is no such thing as perfect kids. Pretending we have the secret formula to raising obedient children is not helpful. Are there really three easy steps to making babies sleep through the night? Should we really try to potty train our child in three days?Mom life is messy. Parenting is Messy. And life doesn't look like the picture-perfect world of Facebook.Click To Tweet
FACEBOOK DOESN’T TELL THE WHOLE STORY
What we see on Facebook is the highlight reel: those moments of smiling children, carefree moms, and family memories. These moments are great, but there is so much more to tell.
SHOULDN’T WE EMBRACE OUR ENTIRE MOM LIFE?
Being a mom is a joy-filled, crazy, awesome adventure. Don’t we want to look back and remember it all? The joy and the stress, the energy and the exhaustion, the chaos and the love. God bless our mess.
These Photos Are Real “Mom Life” Photos. The Highlights. The Mundane. The Crazy.
I hope this devotion encouraged you as a mom! Being a mom is hard work. Keep on loving your kids and all will be well!
