A Cheer for the Small Things

It’s 6:30 in the morning, I’m trying to get my quiet time in BEFORE my girls wake up and I hear, “Mommy, Paige just woke me up!!!” Hello day…….here we gooooooooo……..

The quiet serenity of spending time in God’s Word, conversing with the King of Kings is now replaced with 3 hungry little girls all wanting to be fed, 2 of them telling me about their dreams from the night before…at the same time and each wanting their mommy’s 100% attention! Life as a mom can be crazy!!!! But you know what? I wouldn’t want it any other way!


Motherhood can be hard. It can be exhausting. Some days it takes everything that I have to give….and then some! But the opportunity to raise 3 precious little girls for my Lord’s glory is priceless call, even on those days when I feel I have accomplished nothing. But there is such meaning in the mundane.

Do you have a desire to make a difference in our world?

Do you want to make a positive impact for the future?

You can!

Be a mom!

Have you ever heard the saying, “The hand that rocks the cradle, is the hand that rules the world”? It comes from this poem.

I love the saying….because it’s so true!

What we do inside our homes matter!


How we love our children…..matters!

How we love our husbands….matters! 

Kissing booboos and tickling feet, matters!

Listening to dreams, stories and silly little knock, knock jokes…..it all matters!

Inside our homes we are making tomorrow’s leaders, tomorrow’s world changers. Inside our homes we are investing in our future as we invest our lives into our children. 

Want to rock this world? Be a mom who raises children who rock this world!

How? Here are some things I've done to make God a reality in our home:

- Read to them God’s Word. 

- Talk to them about how much God loves them. 

- Love on them daily, hourly, minute by minute! 

- Take time to listen. 

- Take time to play. 

- Take time to be silly with them. 

- Give them rules to obey…..and then give them grace when they mess-up. 

- Be the example they need to follow…..and then give yourself grace when you mess-up. 

Being a mom is one of the most powerful jobs in the world……embrace it!

God is changing our world through YOU! Rock it, girl! 

Love God Greatly,
