It’s so easy for me to put this idea of a “good night’s rest” up on a pedestal — which many of you know, as a mom of little ones, is a laughable ambition. . It doesn't matter how many rough nights I have survived or how well I have managed to get through each long day, a part of me is always expecting to collapse under the weight of it all instead of expecting the Lord to pick me up and be my strength. . And I don’t want this to be the case anymore. I’m tired of the angry outbursts toward my teething baby in the middle of the night. I’m done with the tears and the same desperate prayers — “Lord, PLEASE give us rest.” And I don't want to spend another night laying awake in despair and anxiety, expecting my world to fall apart. . I know there HAS to be more to motherhood than this. . Ten years from now, I don't want to look back on these years of caring for little ones and only be able to see how many sleepless nights I had. I want to remember how the Lord carried me and how he gave me a strength I never knew I could have. . I want to remember how he was able to turn even nights of sleeplessness into days of fruitfulness because my trust and dependence rested in him. . Does this resonate with anybody today? . If you haven’t already, I encourage you to check out the latest Soul Care blog post, “When You Need Strength for the Sleepless Nights” (link in profile), where I talk more about this. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it and how YOU have seen God’s provision for you through your own mom exhaustion and the sleepless nights. ❤️

Three days ago we had snow flurries, today we are eating popsicles in short sleeves. I’m not complaining! #parkergrace #pnw #spring

The joys of having a chocolate chip muffin for breakfast! I love that Ben and Shine get to hangout every Friday. Our society focuses a lot on quality time spent with those we love, rather than on quantity time spent with those we love. The truth is though, that quality moments emerge through quantity time. It’s so important to spend time together, because it’s in the mundane moments that precious memories are born. Be together this weekend, even if it’s just folding clothes or cleaning out the garage... do it together. ♥️

Is there anything better than just cuddling up with your family in bed? Reading, playing, snuggling - it’s the best!

This is BY FAR my favorite baby gift we received. Of course, the clothes & books & toys are fun.. but this thing has saved mama’s (and baby’s) sanity on several occasions. ESPECIALLY on days like today, when it’s been a rough week filled with teething pains & sleepless nights, & my boy is being a STAGE FIVE CLINGER. 🤷🏻‍♀️ • • I am a huge believer that part of the bond that Lenny and I share is because I wear him frequently. It gives us plenty of snuggle time, & I can quickly respond to his needs. • • It melts my heart when he gives me a smiling, deep eyed gaze that somehow says, “Mama, I know you’re doing your best to make me feel safe, loved & cared for, and I love you for it.” 💕 • • #LittleLennyBear #wearthem #mamasboy #boymom #momlifeisthebestlife #motherhoodrising #love #dailymotherhood #ig_motherhood #littleandbrave #mytinymoments #mynameismama #stopdropandmom #ergobaby #lovingtheordinarymoments #candidchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #lifeasmama

Ok so the weather hasn’t been as amazing has it’s been in some places. But I’m living for these bright nights!! We took a walk to go meet daddy from work and by we I mean me. King Arlen got carried 99% of the way. And the times he did go down he fell over. Does anyone else’s kids get super clumsy at times. My mum always says it’s a growth spurt 🤷🏻‍♀️ Happy Friday everyone 🙌🏼💕
