Inspiring my Motherhood

There are some days when my spirit, my energy, and my inspiration feel as uninspired as that lonely left sock without a mate who perpetually ends up in the bottom of the laundry bin. You know what I’m talking about, right? That’s motherhood for you — laundry unites us all. 😉

But I’m tired of feeling tired and lackluster about motherhood. The constant nag for freedom, less responsibility, or a little less whine is a drain on the soul — my lack of contentment and gratitude is killing my motherhood. 

Don’t misunderstand me … I’m all about mamas’ getting the rest (both physically and emotionally) they need. I’m not ditching the intentional rest I need in order to be a better wife, mother, and friend. 

But I am ditching the unthankfulness I’ve allowed to seep into my heart; goodbye discontentment and sour attitudes. I promise, I won’t miss you. 

Instead, I’m saying hello to being a more present woman.  Hello to inspiring the best mother, wife, and friend within me is my goal and choosing that route is inspiring itself!

Tell me about you — how do you inspire the best woman, wife, mother, and friend within you? What ways do you pursue being intentional in your life? Leave me a comment below or on my Instagram. I’d love to hear from you! 

Love, blessings, and coffee,

    It really is all too easy to forget the wonder and gift that our children are or to get in a rut of being turned inward too much that we can’t see the blessing we could be to those around us. This little Montana journey my family and I are on has revealed some of that in my own heart that I’ve had to pray and purpose to root out. Motherhood and marriage are really good tools of the Lord in our sanctification, for sure!! Good read, Frannie!

      You are so right, Amanda! I fall into both ruts — either forgetting the blessings the tasks of motherhood are or being too inward focused.

      But I’m learning how much joy there is when we focus on these gifts! Our babies are such a blessings and part of that gift is the sanctification God brings to us through them!

      I appreciate your thoughts and input!! 🧡
