There's something we've noticed in ourselves and in moms around us ... a heaviness, and a need for burdens to be lifted. A need for there to be less on our plates, less on our minds, and less on our hearts.
If moms hear one more thing that they aren't doing right, it seems that we will all collectively hit our knees in mourning and despair. There are enough hard things, and it is so easy to just stay there. We cope in a myriad of ways: we joke, we eye roll, we let our kids go untrained and undisciplined, we escape, we eat, we exercise, we work, we do whatever we can to get out from underneath the weight of our calling.
We go everywhere except the one place that not only lifts our burdens, but replaces them with giant helium balloons.
Moms need refreshing truth to be repeated over and over and over. In every moment - when we think are doing good enough job and when we think we are the worst mom on the planet. And that's what we care about communicating here at Risen Motherhood:
The good news that when we live in light of the resurrection of Christ, we can have a secure identity and be part of a bigger story - God's redemption story.
This is a community that will remind you of gospel-truth, no matter how you feel about your motherhood. It's for the imperfect mother, still learning, still growing and still fully recognizing she doesn't have it all together - but we serve a God who does.
