Eve, Sarah, Rebekah, Leah, Jochabed, Naomi and Mary. If we would have seen them in their cultural context, they probably didn't stand out... but God took their otherwise ordinary lives and wove their stories into the most important narrative ever written! Motherhood is messy, life is messy - but no matter whose story you connect with remember that God is walking with you and He is using your life for kingdom purposes! Whether you are a Mother of faith, a mentor Mom, a Mom by adoption, a Mom by birth or marriage - you play an important role in the lives and stories of the next generation. DON'T GIVE UP... all of heaven is cheering for you!
