Motherhood

5 Midnight Meditations for Motherhood

by Aubrey Coleman 

Motherhood is a journey, a delight, and a challenge all the same. Some days we may feel like we can do it all, and other days we fall flat on our faces. It’s a great privilege and a great responsibility, but we are remiss if we think we can do motherhood on our own. While pouring so much of ourselves out in service to our homes and families each day, we must not neglect filling ourselves up with God’s Word. It is the help and strength we need every day, and we simply can’t neglect it.…

By Aubrey Coleman

Well into my first pregnancy, I am astounded by the work that is happening inside of me and despite me.

My daughter was in first grade and had recently asked me to teach her how to wash her hair all by herself. So, we began the lesson of hair washing.…

If there’s one thing that this pregnancy has taught me, it’s that I have a terrible habit of comparing myself to others. As my body grows bigger, so does my human nature need for affirmation.

Seeds of the Heart

Originally Published in Be Still Magazine, Issue 13 

I went over my usual list of expectations as we sat down at the picnic tables under the park shelter. Play nicely. Stay where I can see you. Don’t leave this area. Expecting everyone to scatter in different directions immediately, I turned toward the moms I was with as my littlest suddenly chimed in, “And look for the kids with their heads down, right mommy?…

Reading the Bible When Your Kids are Little

By Kristyn Perez
Lamp and Light Leader for The Daily Grace Co. 

I was recently talking to a mom of little ones who was feeling guilty that she wasn’t spending more time in the Word. She gets up three to five times a night with her young kids and can’t seem to get out of bed in the mornings before they wake up.…
