Do you know a mom in need of encouragement?
Maybe it’s you and you just let out a sigh and said, “How did you know?” or “My friend, ___________, is so tired and discouraged.” or “My mom does so much for everyone else, I really want to show her how much she means to us.”
Several years ago, Ann Voskamp wondered . . . How do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties? What does the Christ-life really look like when your days are gritty, long–and sometimes even dark?
Ann discovered that it is only through “embracing the life we have, we discover the life we’ve always wanted…a life we can take, give thanks for, and break for others.”
How did she do it? She says, “I named daily blessings, literally counting everyday gifts – all the way up to one thousand – more!”
Ann wasn’t listing her huge house, new cars, or a life of leisure. Like you and me Ann describe’s herself as a “mess!” She’s the wife of a farmer, the home-educating mother to a half-dozen kids whose laundry and dishes are never done.
