I still think the best pre-wedding advice I ever got was the marriage was hard work. At the time I was so starry eyed that I completely dismissed those words thinking that would never be our marriage. After almost 20 years of marriage, I can firmly say, “Yes! Marriage is hard work!” I truly believe that God uses our spouses to refine us.
The same can pretty much be used for kids, too. Parenting is hard work, too! Babies aren't born with instruction manuals. I love listening to my sweet daughters talk about how all they want is to be mommies someday. I was the same way. Yet, I think once you are in the midst of motherhood it's pretty common to forget that we are living that dream.
One of the many reasons I'm so excited about my new podcast is that I have guests lined up who I think we will all be able to glean from. Many of them are authors and speakers on the subject, others are just moms in the throws of life sharing their hearts and their story. I can't wait for you to hear them!
