Mamas, there are so many voices clamoring for our attention. If we aren’t careful, we can start to believe dangerous lies which seek to undermine our identity.
Today, I want you to be bold in praying the truth. Don’t just read over these words casually. Out loud, pray:
Heavenly father, I thank you that you call me your beloved daughter. Thank you that I am beautiful. Thank you that I am strong. Thank you that you have uniquely fashioned me to display a unique piece of your heart. Thank you that I am so loved in you that I can be a minister of grace to everyone around me today.
If we want to be women who are full of deep, lasting joy, we have to let God’s voice ring truer than all the rest and be grounded in the truth. There is immense power in the words we speak out in faith!
I hope you found this post encouraging!

I remember going into my daughter's room night after night and kneeling beside her bed and crying my heart out to God because I didn’t know how to be a Christian mom; I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. You know what? God is so faithful! He answered me and simply said, “Spend time with me, Deb.” And so I did. I began arising 15-30 minutes earlier each day so I could read my Bible and pray, and plan out my day with my family.
If there was one thing I would love to share with you is that God is personal and loves you as you are. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved by our amazing God! Come as you are! His loving presence can be practically known and experienced. He is not a God who is far away, He is near and easily found. He longs for you to come to Him!
