Facebook is a great place for sharing snip-its of my day with others. I enjoy sharing what I am up to (in my more shining moments, of course) and my children’s funny quotes and anecdotes throughout the day. Over the past several months, I have had many young moms private message me. I have been getting many questions about how I do this or how to handle that. I love getting these questions because it helps me SEE how God can use me.
I understand that I am still a very young mom, and I have many years of learning ahead of me. But in my very early years of motherhood I felt very overwhelmed and completely useless to anyone outside of my family. I just couldn’t figure out how to pull my act together in my new role. I was so used to making a great plan and working at it until the job was complete. I was not prepared for life with babies who didn’t comprehend and work with MY plan.
I still don’t have it all figured out, but I have learned many skills that have helped me order our days. Many of the questions I get through Facebook are similar. Many come from moms with only a few years less experience than me. Every time I get a question, I get giddy at the opportunity to help another mom along and be an encouragement to her. All the questions have gotten me wondering if I should share in a way that more than just one mom can benefit at a time. While I do hope I still get personal questions, and will enjoy sharing one-on-one with moms, it is my prayer that God will use this blog to reach even more moms.
