Sippy cup refill requests. Another load of laundry to fold. A sibling dispute.
Ever feel like you are reacting to life? Life is coming at you and you respond.
There have been many times in my mothering where instead of joy & hope I feel beat down and unfulfilled.
One woman who has whispered beauty and calm into those dark places, is today’s podcast guest, Sally Clarkson.
She told me motherhood can be more than just doing the dishes. It is an important job, guiding souls through discipleship and love. She taught me that my hard-to-handle boy may need me to sympathize more than instruct. She agreed boys may be a little wild. . .but showed me they can be civil & sip tea.
When I was coming out of a time of “not feeling like myself” Sally showed me how to own my life. To drop the negative thoughts which held me back. To consider what I wanted my days to look like and then make them happen.
Sally has written her encouragement into a book called, “Own Your Life” (2015).
