{A Good Idea?}

For many years now, the Lord has given me a burden for moms. A burden to encourage them in their mothering journey and share what I have learned in my own (good and bad) experiences. I cannot begin to count how often I hear the comment, "I don't know how you do it. You are amazing." While I don't necessarily feel amazing, the comment just solidifies my heart's desire to share with others.

I have been thinking about how to do this and I came up with an idea. I would like to get together with a group of moms (stay-at-home, working, older kids, younger kids. If you're a mom, you're invited!) on a monthly basis for about 2 hours. During this time, we would discuss a topic related to mothering, being a wife, running a household, etc. We would study in-depth what the Scripture has to say about the topic, and practical tips and ways to apply it to our lives. Of course there would be food because (I love food!) no gathering can be complete without it.

So what do you think- Is this something you (or someone you know) would be interested in participating? If so, when is good- day or night? If day, would you be willing to pay a small fee ($2-4) to help cover the cost of childcare so we could meet without the interruption of children? Remember, it would be a monthly event....

Please join me in praying about this. My heart is burdened for moms, particularly mothers with young children. I know how difficult it is to get a shower let alone leave the house by a reasonable hour. Just today a friend commented on this very topic to me. Let me encourage you, it DOES get easier. But, in the midst of it, it can be very isolating. I think this would be a great way to not only learn practical mothering tips/skills, but fellowship and encourage other moms who may be in desperate need of it.
