It is not at all where I expected to come face to face with the complete uprooting and overhauling of my motherhood.
In fact you could say that I was completely blind-sided. It was all together a pleasant surprise as well as a punch in the gut. It was Proverbs. And it was my newfound treasure-trove of hope nuggets and map markers and U-turn signs— and exactly everything I hadn’t known I had been searching for.
It changed everything.
I had always had a gripe with the book of Proverbs. As a Bible college student I had always struggled with its exposition. As a believer I had always struggled with its obscurity. And as a writer I had most definitely struggled with the author’s seemingly complete lack of aim, rhyme, or reason.
As a mother, I found it to be exactly what I needed it to be. And I hope that you will, too.
Before you sit seven of these Proverbs, short bursts of truth offering hope and healing and wisdom for all of us weary moms. My prayer is that they will restore you, just as they have done for me. That through the truth of His Word, God will lay at the doorstep of your heart exactly the encouragement you need through these words. Hang in there, weary moms. Because we have the Creator of the universe and the Lover of our souls willing and waiting to deliver us into the most full and abundant kind of motherhood, more extraordinary than we could ever imagine.
And it all begins in His Word.
Us moms, we are all a little bit weary. That is why I am so excited to offer you this free Ebook, decorated beautifully by the artwork of artist Becki Campbell from A Shiny Reflection. So breathe deep, weary mom. Sit down with a cup of tea, soak up some Scripture, and read the Proverbs like you never have before.
