Mothering is Harder Than I Thought | Part 5Oct 05
Ways To Get Help As A Mom And As An Individual
One thing that we could all use more of is encouragement. As moms we really benefit from being around others who are in the same stage of life as we are or even people who have gone ahead of us. It is so easy for us as moms to get isolated in our daily activities and unless we are intentional we end up feeling so lonely.
There are many ways to find time to be with other moms. Many churches have ministries solely for moms. You can even set up a time every week for a park date with other moms who have kids of similar age. Especially as we head into the summer months with our children home we need to be intentional about making these times out with other moms.
It is also beneficial to be able to have some adult woman time away from the children. Whether that is a bible study that has child care or your husband is willing to take the children for an evening every once in a while. Women thrive in community. We even seem to get energy from being around each other. This is another thing that is important to make sure and some how fit it into that crazy schedule. It is worth the effort!
