A Call To Motherhood - Little Did I Know 2 Years Later...

Embracing Your Call to Motherhood

Motherhood, the very thing I dreamt of all my life….how is it that I have struggled so much with the very thing I’ve always thought was my sole calling?

Over the past several weeks I have enjoyed hours of family time, did some soul searching, goal making, and yes, even contemplated shutting down this blog.

Shortly before the holidays blogging seemed to become more of a task than something I enjoyed and it was then that I knew a change needed to occur. Through quiet prayer, a pad of paper, and time things have started to become very clear. My one word 365 “focus” has served as my main prioritizing tool. I am learning to sift through the things that are important to me and I have begun to embrace my call to motherhood.  Do you know your calling? Are you a mom who is struggling with a “mom identity” crisis?

I have not worked outside the home in nearly 9 years (with the exception of a few cleaning/babysitting/organizing and writing gigs). With those few exceptions my place has been primarily in the home and this has not been easy for me to accept. I have longed to contribute more to the family financially. I have struggled with fear of judgement and having the identity of being “just a mom”.

The truth is, I’m really not “just a mom” and neither are you! Mom’s are the anchor in a household. You are the glue that holds your house together and the oil that keeps things running smoothly. Although, working outside the home may/may not add another identity or title to your name what I’ve learned is that it’s simply not for me. While working outside the home is not bad it is simply not my calling at this given time; while, being the keeper of my home most certainly is.

I am here to create the best homestead I possibly can with what gifts I have been given.

Although, I dream of living in the country; sitting on a large porch lined with rocking chairs waiting for stories to be told, a few chickens, a tree lined property, a red barn, and a garden large enough to sustain our family of six. It is only then that I am quickly reminded for now my canvas is 1000 sq ft ranch in the city. It is the foundation which all else will be built upon and it is my calling to make it my happy homestead.
