We often underestimate the immense influence (and power even!) we have as mothers, over our children. Whether we are full-time stay at home mothers or working mothers, our choices, our behaviour and our values, all influence and affect our children. Even when we are unaware of it.
Motherhood, like labour and delivery, is hard. And, like labour and delivery, we can choose to work with God or stumble our way through and make things more difficult. We CAN do this because it is God who has called to be mothers (yes, He did!), and He will equip us.
