Mama, you look like Jesus when . . . 

You’re wiping down the high chair for the third time today.

You’re teaching your toddler how to cope with big feelings.

You wash the 8000th load of laundryand then wash it again because you forgot about it for three days.

RELATED: When You Feel Like You Have Nothing Left, Jesus Can Use the Crumbs

You hold your crying child after he’s finally fallen off the chair you have pulled him down from 30 times already.

You patiently wait for your 3-year-old to dress herself.

You nurse your newborn back to sleep while the rest of your household is in dreamland.

You bathe your babies after a long day of playing.

You play dolls or catch when you’d rather take a nap.

You serve your family dinner (whether it’s one you’ve spent all day prepping or simply the Lord’s chicken).

You teach your children to pray.

And, wait for it . . .

You escape to recharge, refill your cup, renew your mind.

Even Jesus in His perfection had to get alone with His Father to recharge. Don’t let the enemy make you feel guilty for that. 

Read that one again.

Sometimes motherhood feels like a thankless job. You do a million tiny things that feel invisible.

RELATED: God Sees You, Weary Mama

Let me remind you that not only do you look like Jesus as you faithfully serve your family, but Jesus is also looking at you.

Every invisible selfless task you do from sunup to sundown is seen by your Savior.

Every Cheerio picked up, every ounce of milk pumped, every tear wiped is not done in vain. As you serve your family He smiles down on His daughter with gladness because you are actually serving Him.

“The king will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me'” (Matthew 25:40).

I am a Christian wife and teacher-turned-SAHM in the trenches of parenting two tiny humans. You'll find me the happiest sipping a cup of coffee with Jesus in the early morning hours or hanging out with my husband and babies on our back porch.

God Sees All the Little Things a Mother Does

She makes the appointments. She packs the car snacks. She ensures the diaper bag is restocked with diapers and wipes before heading anywhere. RELATED: Now I Know Why My Mom Was Always the Last One Out the Door She takes them to get haircuts and ensures they don’t need to move up a size in clothing. She sings their favorite songs, cooks their favorite meals, and reads their favorite books. She wipes their little tears and ensures there are no monsters under the bed. She often gets lost in the non-stop scurry of changing diapers, washing dishes, planning grocery trips,...

To the Mom Trying to Do It All, You’re In God’s Way

To the Mom Trying to Do It All, You're In God's Way www.herviewfromhome.com

I’m a laid-back perfectionist. Seriously, it’s a thing. I am completely at peace going out in public looking like I just got electrocuted, in the shower, fully clothed, while cutting my hair. But I won’t even attempt (fill in the blank) if there’s even a small chance of failure. I don’t know if that’s being a perfectionist or just a coward. So when I got married, I realized pretty quickly I wasn’t the perfect wife. It was shocking to no one but me. Much to my dismay, I wasn’t as good of a cook or hostess or decorator or housekeeper as I thought I’d...

If God Could Rest, So Can You Mama

In: Faith, Motherhood
Mom and daughter in hammock

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. For six days he made the sky, the oceans, plants, and animals. His finishing touch was man and woman, and what did he do next? He rested. I like to think He took a nap. One of my mantras in life is, “When able, take a nap.” We run ourselves ragged as women. We balance a thousand different things and wrestle with a million decisions ranging from Do I buy Frozen 2 on Prime or wait until it streams on Disney+? to My child got in trouble at school for...
